A letter I sent to the School of Natural Healing documenting some of my experiences this past year. Please take time to read it and see how phenomonal natural healing can be. Also feel free to add your own testimonials regarding herbs, natural healing, changing your diet or anything else you would like to talk about.
Dear David and Fawn Christopher,
I am one of the 2,000 new students that joined the School of Natural Healing Online last year. I am currently finishing level 500 and have felt a need to send this letter along with a profound sense of gratitude to you for the work that you are doing in shedding light on the miracle of our bodies and the beautiful healing foods and plants prepared for us by a loving God.
I wanted to take a minute and share some experiences I have had since I have began my studies with you and The School of Natural Healing. The following stories are just a fraction of what I have experienced since starting the school last year.
I have an 8 year old daughter, Katie who has Down Syndrome. She has suffered chronic ear and sinus infections for years. We were constantly in the doctor’s office for another round of antibiotics. I knew that they were harsh on the body and was extremely concerned for her. One day I expressed my concern to her pediatrician that there must be something we could do to strengthen her immune system or eliminate something from her diet. I was laughed at and told it was just the lot Katie had been given and she would always be sick. I was furious. I looked around for an alternative, wound up signing up for the School of Natural Healing and Katie has not been back to any doctor in almost a year. We have all but eliminated milk from her diet and when she does start in on a sinus or ear infection we start her on Dr. Christopher’s Infection Formula and Kid-e-Mune and the results are immediate.
Cayenne, X-ceptic, and BF&C
Just weeks into the first class I was chopping carrots and sliced my thumb clear down to the bone, severing the nerves. I could tell I had severed the nerves because the pain was not only in my thumb but in the other fingers and down my hand as well. I don’t know if I should admit this or not but when I saw the blood gushing from my thumb I was excited because I could see if Cayenne would really stop the bleeding in 10 seconds. I put a tsp of cayenne into a glass of water and drank it and sure enough…it worked! I than walked over to my neighbor who is a nurse. She and I had talked several times previous about what I had been learning. I asked her if I was stupid for not going to the ER for stitches. She was concerned that I didn’t want to go but curious as well. I covered my thumb with X-ceptic and BF&C and put on a bandaid. I did this several times a day and was fascinated as the days progressed and there was no infection setting in. Soon the nerves in my thumb and the surrounding fingers began tingling as they healed. Within a couple of weeks you couldn’t tell I had ever cut my thumb.
My mother and Kidney Failure
By mid summer I had finished the level 100 course and had just started level 200 when I got a call from my sister telling me that my mother wasn’t doing very well. I packed up my herbs and drove the five hours to my parent’s home. I wanted to cry when I walked in and saw my mom. Her entire body was so swollen you could barely recognize her. The doctor’s office had just phoned in test results shortly before I arrived. She was in Kidney Failue. They told her to let them know if she got worse and they would see her the next week. I couldn’t believe it. KIDNEY FAILURE? SEE YOU NEXT WEEK? I looked at my mom and said, “Mom, I can help you if you will let me”. She must have been scared because she agreed. I really didn’t know what I was doing because I had only been studying for a few weeks but it had to be better then, “See you next week.” I put her on the three day juice cleanse and the extended herbal cleanse. Because it was kidney failure we emphasized the Kidney Formula. I took her off her water pill and substituted Dandelion instead. Because she is diabetic, I also put her on the Pancreas Formula. We eliminated all dairy products and the soda pop. Her neck was so swollen that we did Mullein and Lobelia fomentations for several nights. I stayed for ten days. When she went in the blood tests the following week she was out of danger, the swelling was almost gone and all her numbers were headed in the right direction. Over the next several weeks they continued to improve: Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar levels, Cholesterol leves…all of them. I will never forget my dad walking me to my car as I prepared to leave. He hugged me goodbye and said that I had probably saved my mother’s life. I cried all the way home. Me, a mom after only a few weeks was able to participate in a miracle.
This past October our entire family was blessed with the dreaded swine flu. Although the hospital was flooded with emergencies and had no beds left, we didn’t even need to see a doctor. Even Katie pulled through like a trooper. I was amazed the night I went up to bed and heard her horrible cough. I just rubbed X-ceptic, Mullein and Lobelia, and Anti-Spasmodic onto her little chest and she never coughed again the rest of the night. Amazing. Although we did all the immune strenghthening things we could: Immucalm, Echinacea, ElderFlower and Peppermint,Infection, modified Cold Sheet Treatments, etc. we still had our favorite “symptom” reliever. Our family called it the Swine Flu Cocktail. We would mix tinctures of White Willow Bark, Kava Kava, and a few drops of Lobelia into a little juice. It took the edge off the headaches and sore throats so we could sleep.
Migraines and Hormonal Changease
Through diet I had been able to get rid of all my migraines except the one that happens with my cycle. I know I will eventually go through a Herbal regimine for this but I am already taking so many herbs with the extended cleanse, and others that I decided to wait. A few months ago I started in with what I call, a period migraine. I took four Hormonal Changease capsules and two Wheat Germ Oil capsules and the pain was gone within a couple of hours. I now do this the first two mornings of my cycle and have been migraine free for three months.
My 92 year old Grandmother
Last month I got a call from my dad that my grandmother wasn’t feeling well. She had a slight fever and elevated blood pressure so they were taking her to the hospital. She was recovering from hermerroid surgery. Within two days of being in the hospital, she couldn’t walk, or eat and was on her second blood transfusion. Although they ran some obligatory tests the doctors were quite calloused and just kept saying that she was 92 and this is what happens when you are 92. She continued to deterriorate and a few days later she was transferred to Hospice and the family was called in. In Hospice they will let you bring in whatever you want so I brought my juicer and started her on fresh carrot juice, Vitalerbs and Herbal Iron. We also gave her Slippery Elm Gruel. I was there for one week and watched her go from lying there helpless to sitting up, feeding herself and beginning to walk. Everyone was amazed at her recovery. Again, I was so overwhelmed with gratitude that someone as simple as I with simple knowledge could participate in a miracle. Thank you.
While I there to help my grandmother, my mother burned her hand on the element in the oven. It was burned badly and she was in a lot of pain. (Again, I am terrible but all I could think was…cool I get to make a burn paste…I haven’t done that yet). I had her soak her hand in cold water while I made the paste. I explained what I learned about pain and how it is misunderstood. I told her she wouldn’t even need a Tylenol if she would keep the burn paste on. If she woke up in pain during the night just put more on and go back to bed. We watched the skin soak it up right where the burn was and not around the edges. It was amazing. My dad was speechless that she didn’t have any pain. Two days later she left it off all day while she did laundry. By evening the pain had returned with a vengeance. She didn’t do that again and the burn healed within a couple of weeks.
Last week my 16 year old son was skateboarding and broke his foot. I asked the doctor not to cast it so I could have him soak it. She was great and worked with me. I had him soak his foot in comfrey tea, sleep in BF&C fomentations and take about 15-20 “00” BF&C capsules a day. He broke it Thursday evening and by Sunday night was starting to put pressure on it. By Tuesday he was (I am not kidding) in tennishoes, hiking the Redwoods in California and tromping through caves. When we went back the following Thursday (7 days later) the Doctor couldn’t believe it.
I know you probably hear from people all the time but I still felt the need to thank you for continuing the work of your father and our Father. While I thank God daily for the miracle of bringing this knowledge into my life and allowing my to be a tool to bless others, I needed to thank you as well. For every one of these stories there are others I did not cite. It has been an incredible year. Thank you for teaching me.
