From WWII Death to Overcomer of Everything 

Avoid Human Collapse Disorder & Diseases (HCDD) :

If you are concerned about your health, read this!

The important wellness information herein is my present to you.

I am sharing what I have learned during my overcoming unbelievable diverse very traumatic adversities. I did so without support from anyone. The greatest long-term struggle was reversing of my stealthy path from unknown undiagnosable chronic illnesses. Therefore, because I am now in the best of health, this is the most important knowledg for young and old. It is my hope that my hard-earned wisdom  will also help you to be well.

Screaming: Presently more than half of all Americans have at least one chronic illness. A large percentage have more than one. And "It is becoming worse every year."

Most of those illnesses did not exist when I was growing up during an era of nation-wide mayhem and starvation.

However, almost everyone remained very healthy in spite of such unhealthy conditions that would appeal most to today's Westerners. As I grew older, and synthetic chemicals were introduced into our surroundings, my body was absorbing and accumulating them without me being aware of that. Consequently I began to suffer several dozen of those conditions and illnesses listed below. Even so, our medical   could only treat my symptoms because it did not know about their causes. After some years my condition became so painful that I felt like I was going to die.I was hoping that It would be soon, especially because hardly anyone believed that I was really sick.

Near the bottom of this page is a list of my forty-plus conditions, symptoms and illnesses that I had slowly accumulated.

The reality of my wellness journey should  cause everyeone to be pro-active about self-care. Because that does not seem to be the case guarantees the continuation of Human Collapse Disease/Disorder.

Here are some statistics. The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease states:

More than 190 million Americans, or about 59 percent of the population, are affected by one or more chronic diseases. Having one chronic condition can increase the risk of developing another.  Without change, the number of people with three or more chronic diseases is expected to increase to 83 million by 2030,..."

The chances are great that you or someone very close to you has one or more of the following these conditions:

Chemical poisoning
Gluten sensitivity
Chronic fatigue
Lyme disease
Multiple sclerosis
Foggy thinking
MCS, Environmental Illness
Leaky gut
Reoccurring headaches
Rheumatoid arthritis
Fatty liver disease
Declining sperm count
Autism spectrum
Food addictions
Attention deficit
Adrenal issues
Various types of cancer
Inflammatory bowel disease
Reproductive problems
Chronic Cluelessness
High blood pressure
LDL cholesterol
Metabolic syndrome
Social disconnect
Peanut sensitivity
Social isolation
Family and group breakup
Joint replacements
So Young with Many Pills
Learning disabilities
Mold related illnesses
Pasty spider vein face
Emotional instabilities
Nose bleeding, polyps
Sick building syndrome
Growing craziness
Wheat allergies
Central Sensitivity Syndromes
Dairy sensitivity
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Spina bifida
Sinus/nasal polyps
Premature hair loss
Ankylosing Spondylitis
Broken brain
All at an ever-earlier age

Worst of all, when a brain  becomes  foggy, broken, all bets are off for recovery. Therefore chronic illnesses will keep growing in numbers of cases and types!

After I had been several years on my path to slow death, I was unexpectedly blessed by a telephone call from a stranger. What little information she shared with me immediately triggered my life-long insatiable curiosity to help my recovery from that "un-diagnosable" illness. That illness was actully a number of unknown illnesses with overlapping symptons.

Their root cause were the stealthy, slow, accumulation of arsenic and other poisons in my body.

My continuous research and total recovery the best of health made me realize that most, if not all people, in the world are similarly affected by environmental poisons to various degrees. Therefore I can no longer remain quiet about that most important subject.

~ ~ ~

When my little brother and I were deepest-poverty-stricken kids, we mixed commonly available chemicals and packed them into tin cans and other kinds of containers. We created home-made bombs, rockets and hand grenades that we launched in various places around our city.

Still, no one listened to our plight, even though we caused huge clouds of attention-getting smoke and ear-torturing noises.

No one cared enough to grope our groins or warn us about our potential shock and awe death. Most importantly, no one imagined that someday  concoctions of a huge number of chemicals in foods, water, air and everywhere would someday help cause collateral damage to millions of unsuspecting people all around the world.

Ami's Avalanche Axiom always kicks in: The greater the silence and inaction about problems, the more astounding their consequent "collateral damage." The best ongoing recent example is the wonderfully educational  sudden onset of the financial system collapse.

~ ~ ~

I was lucky to have grown up in a very natural environment. While I was growing older I experienced the effects of the graduall transitioning of life into a chemical-ised world. Herein I will describe those backgrounds and the consequences of that world-wide change.

However, I will mostly focus herein on my surprising out-of-the-ordinary recovery from very gradual toxin-induced Environmental Illness (EI) that was causing my slow death. EI is more frequently referred to as Multiple Chemical Snsitivity (MCS). My journey helps prove the reality of HCD.

Unfortunately there has been a lot of ignorance, apathy, misunderstanding, and  controversy about HCD. This article is but one of many examples of falsehood. That web site attempts to discredit many effective methods of prevention, diagnoses and treatments that fall outside the mainstream establishments. However, this ignorance about staying healthy seems to be changing, albeit slowly. Here is but one amazing example, the curing of MRSA with an ancient method, a mixture of just five ingredients: two garlic species, copper, wine, and ox gall (a dried form of ox bile).

My personal experiences prove that commonly used chemicals can have very serious effects on health. Again, they also prove that EI/MCS and other HCD diseases are not necessarily "purely psychological" as some self-serving parties persistently claim.

Even low level, but long term, exposures can indeed cause physically-induced diseases. This produces additional psychologically-induced physical PTSD reactions from worrying about them. However, if my years of world record intense early-life traumas did give me PTSD, no one has ever diagnosed such, and I have never had mental health counseling. On the contrary, as a spiritual care volunteer I helped to bring comfort to patients in regional hospital and  psychiatric facilities.

Even so, could my presumed as yet undiagnosed PSTD have caused me to accumulate many subtle and some serious "all in your head" symptoms over a period a very long time? Or did synthetic chemicals cause most, if no all, of my symptoms of worsening health? I will reach an undeniable conclusion that may surprise you.

I am not a doctor, mental health counselor or a professional in related fields. However, I am a former member of The Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress. I was accepted not because of formal book learning but mostly because of overcoming immense long-term challenges. Therefor what I am sharing here is mostly based on my personal experiences, contact with others and years of research.

Furthermore, there are also many other types of illnesses, because almost everyone's immune system has to deal with a constant onslaught of synthetic chemicals. This can eventually weaken or overload them, making it easier for illness-causing germs and viruses to thrive.

Repeating what I said before, very few of the illnesses listed above ever existed. The proof is that during my immediate World War II post-war years even the farmers did not have enough to eat. My middle school class on one of its yearly hikes into the mountains.I, my brother and mother.Except for being very skinny, everyone apppeared to be far healthier than they do today.

Study these two photos. One shows my middle school class on a yearly half-day hike in nearby mountains. There was also not a single overweight teacher of kid in any of the four schools that I attended. What does that say about genetic causes of obesity?

Notice how healthy my mother, brother and I were during the time when we had to scavenge for food from manure and garbage sources, and cut peatmoss out of a bog to fuel the kichen stove.

During our Age of Toxicity most people everyone has  daily exposures of more and more kinds of synthetic chemicals. Most of those have never even been tested for health effects. And certinly not in the thousands of thousands of combinations they can react in bodies. The main effects being the weakening of immune systems, genetic damage, mutations, degradation and emasculation.

The growing suicide rate and inability to think clearly are ample proof. What else could be causing such a rapid drastic change?  Since there are going to be thousands of new chemicals and electro-magnetic frequencies sources introduced in the future, their combined results on human electro-chemical systems are causing what can be classified as Human Collapse Diseases/Disorder (HCDD).

Paraphrasing: It no longer matters what you call your disease. The label of you disease that your doctor gives you is most likely meaningless. Doctors only look at symptoms and not theri systemic causes.~ From Dr. Sherry Rogers' book, Detoxify Or Die

Think about of how ubiquitous man-made chemicals must be. I knew someone who was a retired research chemist with over two-hundred patents in his name. He had  worked for a very large chemical company. About once a year his family made its own soap. When a mutual friend asked him why he did not just buy it, he answered that his work included turning industrial waste into ingredients for consumer products.

By the time he died, that chemist had also saved many 55-gallon drums full of glass bottles and jars. He could be considered to be eccentric or a visionary. He thought  that when the public learns about toxins in plastics, there will be a great demand for glass containers.

That was years ago, and strangely, as yet few people care  or know about that envirnmentl poisons re making them sick. Some would rather die a slow death than to accept and deal  with their brutal reality.

Downtrends in overall health cannot be reversed until the world wakes up from its deep apathy, and after millions more people will have died unnecessarily, prematurely and miserably slowly. Here and here is overwhelming evidence that uncountable millions  have already so departed.

However, do not despair, because my health journey proves that with patient discipline and persistent research for truthful knowledge one can recover from environmental illnesses that is one major cause of HCDD.

Even though I have avoided junk foods as much as possible and have exercised regularly, vigorously, most of my adult life, I accumulated an unknown number of chemicals in my body. Without knowing that, while over forty years those chemicals were causing me to develop seemingly unrelated and mostly harmless symptoms.

Until a sudden very serious blowup of my health.

One January day some years ago, while I still had enough stamina to go jogging up and down a rocky rriver gorge road almost every day, my immune sytem reached its limits. But it took several years to learn and pin-point that. My body could not no longer process ita chemical load enough to keep me healthy. It also took a long time to learn that MCC was one of its two major causes. The other one being frequent periods of externally-caused acute stress.

Within a few days during that January I began getting  high fever, persistent profuse brochial mucus, constant thirst, extreme weakness, rapid weight loss and frequent prolonged headaches.

Some of my conditions waxed and waned. Others kept intensifying. They seemed to have been caused by immedite or longer-delayed reactions to smoke, chlorine and unknown multitudes of scientifically-concocted chemicals. Even so, the medical establishment could never determine the causes of my growing numbers of symptoms. My doctor only prescribed  antibiotics and anti-depressants far too long a time, That helped speed up my miserable dying.

Eventually my decades-long family doctor phoned me the diagnosis during dinner time: Your blood tests indicate that you have a serious illness. That is all he told me. Having learned by then that that their whole system had become SNAFU, I did not bother to ask him one question. A very good doctor had already correctly diagnosed me in the mean time: Serious accumulation of common toxins in my body. The most deadly one being arsenic.

We freqently hear that arsenic  is a natural substance and can be in the water. But that was not so with me. For about three decades our domestic city water came from a group of nearby springs that tested to be remarkably free from  couple hundred man-made chemicals and pathogens. Therefore I suggest that you search online for toxins in foods and substances.

I was slowly being destroyed by the emerging Human Collapse Diseases / Human Collpase Disorder (HCCD). In my case that was causing an astounding number of accumulating symptoms/conditions/illnesses over a period of many years. They were  accute or chronic. They are listed here in no prticular order:

Painful lumpy nodes in arm pits
Day to day fluctuating weight
Liver spots on face, hands and arms. Frozen off yearly be dermatologists
Thick skin with bleeding cracks on heels. One symptom of arsenic poinsoning

Poor circulation
Plus other probable unknown conditions because toxins affect every cell in body

Think about this: What might have caused dozens of symptoms and conditions in an obsessive healthnut like me? How could such a big variety of my very serious conditons have been overlooked by so many people for so many years?

After that life-saving telephone call from that stranger which I mentioned above, I very slowly began to re-invigorated my life. My main efforts were trying to avoid synthetic chemicals, medicines and processed foods as much as possible. I also began detoxifing my body everyday with a variety of methods. While doing that I gradually became emotionally and spiritually much stronger than I have ever been in my whole life.

I am intermittently experiencing only a few of my forty-some symptoms/conditions. They are in bold italic typeface. Those conditions can still triggered by stressful situations and/or certain chemicals to which I became sensitized.

Next year I will be eigthy years old. I can do the Twist dance move within inches down to my heels. And then rise back up with a spiraling ninety-plus degree turn.

Certain chemicals in deodorants caused me to have sore swollen lymph nodes. Even when I was using any kind of main-brand deodorant, my wife would often still tell me, "You still stink," after I had just come out of the shower. Now that I have been detoxifying I rarely even have to use deodorant.

2  When I told an optometrist many years ago that I had begun detoxifying my body, he said "That probably will have improved your eyesight." Recently a ophalmologist was very surprised by my eye health.

This is yet another unbelievable, but brutally true, confirmation of ignorance, misunderstanding, cover-up or greed. I had a surgery to stop a most severe middle ear infection when I was a baby. Because of almost total neglect, extreme poverty and ignorance, I unnecessarily continued to suffer decades of acute/chronic stinky pus ear infections. This also included two additional surgeries to remove proud flesh, wild meat, from my skull when I was a juvenile..

I have always had one or two severe colds or an occasional flu every year. Since I quit getting yearly flu shots many years ago, I have had no indications of them.

My PSA level was on a rapid rise before my "serious illness" diagnosis and then quickly declined again to a very low level after I began detoxifying my body.
