“My Kids Are Vaccinated And They Are Fine.”

We posted this meme on Arcanum’s Facebook Page a few weeks back and got a number of replies that we thought we should address with a slightly longer post.

One follower of our page wondered, “Do we know why it (vaccines) impacts some children more/differently than others?” This was my answer:

“It’s dynamic. Health of parents (microbiome, minerals, cellular health),  Genetic Miasms (inherited predisposition), exposure to toxins (Ibuprofen, Glyphosate, heavy metals, vaccines, etc.). We find the causes for that individual when we peel off the sequential layers of the traumatic timeline homeopathically. Like a geological dig, you get to see what’s restored to health after each shock and block is released.”

Every Kid Vaccinated Is Damaged To Some Degree

Dr. Andrew Moulden said that every child vaccinated is vaccine damaged. His research showed a wide range of modern neurodevelopmental diseases. He explained how numerous illnesses can actually have multiple triggers. These chronic issues are actually part of a common syndrome that folks are tying together because they mostly don’t know what they’re looking for.

Dr. Moulden spoke a lot to facial anomalies that occur at the moment the child gets the shot given the shock, lack of oxygen and the nature of the chemical toxicity. He cited that Mercury is a highly toxic substance that affects MASS reactions and zeta. Thus, we should be concerned about mercury that is used in dental fillings, mercury in food, and mercury in vaccines.

“He showed how learning disabilities, autism, Alzheimer’s, irritable bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, colitis, food allergies, shaken baby syndrome, sudden infant death, idiopathic seizure disorders, Gulf War syndrome, Gardasil adverse reactions, schizophrenia, Tourette’s syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, expressive aphasia, impaired speech skills, attention deficit disorders, silent ischemic strokes, blood clots, idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura, Parkinson’s disease, and other modern neurodevelopmental disorders are all connected.”

Michelle Goldstein, a mother and researcher cited that her daughter contracted Crohn’s disease after an HPV Vaccine, “It took many years and countless consultations with integrative, holistic physicians before I recognized the link between the HPV vaccination and my daughter’s illness. To be honest, there was only one holistic physician, who specialized in autism, who helped us make this connection. The many others, including a certified functional medicine doctor, failed to connect these two events.

I now believe wholeheartedly that the HPV vaccine and my daughter’s development of a life-threatening autoimmune disorder was no coincidence. Of course, the majority of doctors will claim illnesses and vaccines are not connected in any way. This is part of their education and training as physicians.”

In 1986, Congress officially acknowledged the reality of vaccine-caused injuries and death by creating and passing The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (Public Law 99-660). The safety reform portion of this law requires doctors to provide parents with information about the benefits and risks of childhood vaccines prior to vaccination, and to report vaccine reactions to federal health officials.

Doctors are required by law to report suspected cases of vaccine damage. To simplify and centralize this legal requisite, federal health officials established the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — operated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Ideally, doctors would abide by this federal law and report adverse events following the administration of a vaccine. However, the FDA recently acknowledged that 90 percent of doctors do not report vaccine reactions.

How Many Kids Are We Talking About?

They are choosing to subvert this law by claiming the adverse event was, in their opinion, not related to the vaccine. In fact, every year more than 25,000 reports of adverse reactions to vaccines are filed with the federal government (data initially accessible only through the Freedom of Information Act).

These figures include hospitalizations, irreversible brain damage, and hundreds of deaths. Considering that these numbers may represent just 10 percent, the true figures could be as high as 250,000 adverse events annually. Yes, you read that statistic correctly. However, even this figure could be conservative.

According to Dr. David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, “Only about 1 percent of serious events [adverse drug reactions] are reported to the FDA.” Thus, it is entirely possible that millions of people are adversely affected by mandatory vaccines every year.

I was one of those mothers whose family doctor claimed that my son’s screaming around the clock for the first six months of his life was just normal. “Babies cry,” they said. I was so numb with exhaustion and hadn’t had a baby before so didn’t know that sleeping for only 20 – 30 minutes a few times in a 24 hour period wasn’t normal.

I also didn’t know that losing all eye contact and speech after the MMR shot also wasn’t a coincidence. His gut issues, suffering constipation so severe that he only passed stool every 1-2 weeks and had to be put under general anesthetic to remove the impacted stool manually was also chocked up to coincidence as well. He was weak, sickly and failing to thrive. You can listen to Jordan’s story for free here: ww.thepathtocure.com/bonus)

It was only after I had my daughter who was Vaccine Free that I realized that I’d been very seriously duped. Alternatively, she slept several hours in the day and 10-12 hours at night shortly after birth. She also never had the need for Tylenol or Antibiotics until she was eleven and then not again until once in her late teens. Her health has been just that robust.

John Thomas wrote, “Believe it or not, babies used to be easy to manage with the exception perhaps of when they were sick. Blood curdling screams were very rare. Crying for hour after hour with no apparent cause, being listless, failing to grow and mature on schedule were unusual. Today when these kinds of symptoms happen, parents are just told that your son or daughter will grow out of it — you don’t have to worry.”

One of the more surprising realizations when you start to do your due diligence is that the CDC is in the business of pushing vaccines, yet the brain damage vaccines can cause is admitted and disclosed right there before your eyes on the CDC web site. If a doctor, public health official or anybody else tells you vaccines are perfectly safe – they are either misinformed or lying. Tell them to read the CDC web site.

Case Example

Vicki Batts writes in her article about how parents of vaccine damaged kids are being bullied into silence,

“In 1993, the Marchant family’s 14-month-old daughter received what was supposed to be just a regular MMR vaccine. Before receiving her vaccination, baby Jodie said, “Love you!” to her dad in the waiting room at the doctor’s office. Everything seemed to be going okay — until Mr. Marchant heard his child scream.

As they would later learn, though they thought their child was being given a standard MMR vaccine, this was not the case. In fact, it turned out their child was given an untested 8-in-1 vaccine illegally — a vaccine that would permanently damage their perfectly healthy baby.

After taking their baby girl, Jodie, home from her vaccination appointment, her parents noticed she was shivering, shaking, screaming and running a fever. Like any parent would, the Marchants consulted with a doctor immediately. The doctor insisted Jodie was just suffering from a virus and there was nothing to worry about. Sadly, this would instead become the day Jodie was left permanently disabled, never again to be her normal self.

Jodie began suffering from seizures, incontinence of both bowels and bladder, and acid reflux. She also lost the ability to speak, stopped walking and no longer made eye contact. Jodie suffered with near-constant pain and was inconsolable. And with growing numbers of vaccine-damaged children being reported (and then swept under the rug), doctors merely diagnosed Jodie with autism.

In 1998, however, Jodie was being treated at Royal Free Hospital and doctors finally began to realize that Jodie was not like other children. Pediatric gastroenterologist Professor John Walker-Smith agreed to help the Marchant family and soon uncovered the truth: Jodie was not given an ordinary MMR vaccine. Later that year, Dr. Paul Shattock analyzed a urine sample from Jodie and told her parents that there must have been something else mixed into her vaccine.

After much searching and going through many hoops, the Marchants eventually discovered that their daughter’s doctor had given her not just the MMR vaccine, but also a vaccine for DTaP, polio, and one other vaccine (not currently disclosed). All of this was given to 14-month-old baby in one shot.”

Mike Adams of Natural News writes, “The vaccine industry refuses to conduct scientific tests on the health outcomes of vaccinated children vs. unvaccinated children. Why? Because these test would no doubt show unvaccinated children to be healthier, smarter and far better off than vaccinated children in terms of behavioral disorders, allergies and even autoimmune disorders. Check the people you know: Don’t you routinely find that the most heavily-vaccinated kids are the ones who get sick all the time? Meanwhile, groups like the Amish who largely refuse to vaccinate their children have near-zero rates of autism.”

Vaccines given to children in America today are admitted by the CDC to contain aluminum, mercury, monosodium glutamate and formaldehyde — all known neurotoxins. While healthy people with the right genetic makeup might eliminate these toxins relatively quickly, there is a subgroup of genetically susceptible children and adults who cannot. These individuals are genetically “hyper-susceptible” to vaccine damage. In effect, they are “genetic ticking time bombs” of vaccine damage.

Undoing The Damage Done

My own son’s vaccine damage was reversed. In a nutshell, this is how we did it:

Also here is a list of some of the other vaccine damaged kids we’ve been able to help:







Here’s what to do to protect your child, naturally, with greater efficacy and without causing them harm:












Pinch Me Baby One More Time

[This post is from the December 2018 newsletter – click here to read it.]

“Pinch!” by Jinx! https://flic.kr/p/8q8EWX

Pinch me baby, just one more time. Before you think we’ve gone off our rocker, we don’t mean this in a mean sense. Grabbing a little skin on the back of your own hand in a little pinch can actually show how hydrated we are. Are you curious to do the test?

Then head on over to our blog post “Pinch me! (and other ways to know if you’re staying hydrated).” While this blog article is part of a series we are doing on natural fertility, you’ll learn more about how hydration is simply the foundation for good diet and lifestyle. Every physiological function, and every cell in your body can’t run without water.

Also on the topic of hydration, you can find out how a concept called “Sequential Eating” can help with your hydration. Jeff Korentayer will show you that there is actually a way to improve your hydration without drinking more water.

It comes from a concept called “sequential eating” discovered by Dr. Stanley Bass. It’s based on the understanding of how food forms layers inside your stomach. Think Tetris, but played with a knife and fork.

“Guess who made each of the bottle” by Chad Rosenthal https://flic.kr/p/69DGCU

Your digestive system uses a different enzyme for each food item. It has an easier time with like items grouped together. Layers of food digest better than a jumble of everything all mixed together. It’s a basic efficiency factor for digestion.

Are you ready to be enlightened with regards to hydration?  Then follow the links to these two blog articles:



Heilkunst Treatment of PANDAS/PANS


PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) is the latest catch phrase describing a dynamic pathology that we’ve been effectively treating for over 20 years.

Generally, there is a trigger, an event where the child has “Never Been Well Since” (NBWS).  This can be an infectious event like a streptococcal infection, a vaccine, a physical trauma like an accident or an emotional event like the death of a loved one or the loss of a friend.

To the parent, it feels as if their child is forever changed.  It can feel as overt as having a stranger in their home, an outpatient from a mental institution or as subtle as just the feeling that something isn’t quite right.  It is clear that their tune has changed and they’re no longer navigating their world in the same way.

Physical or mental Symptoms can show up for both PANS or PANDAS as:

  • Tics
  • OCD, compulsions and/or obsessions
  • Personality Shifts
  • Decline in motor coordination
  • Changes in Handwriting
  • Sudden Eating Restrictions
  • Sensory Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability and/or bouts of anger/rages
  • Developmental regression (ie. cognitive capacities)
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Involuntary urination and/or increased frequency


THE PANS “working” CRITERIA as per Dr. Swedo (the founder of the PANS/PANDA label):

  1. Abrupt, dramatic onset of obsessive-compulsive disorder or severely restricted food intake.
  2. Concurrent presence of additional neuropsychiatric symptoms, with similarly severe and acute onset, from at least two of the following seven categories:
  3. Anxiety
  4. Emotional lability and/or depression
  5. Irritability, aggression and/or severely oppositional behaviors
  6. Behavioral (developmental) regression
  7. Deterioration in school performance
  8. Sensory or motor abnormalities
  9. Somatic signs and symptoms, including sleep disturbances, enuresis or urinary frequency
  10. Symptoms are not better explained by a known neurologic or medical disorder, such as Sydenham chorea, systemic lupus erythematosus, Tourette disorder or others.



While many parents and their practitioners often feel like they’re roaming around in the diagnostic dark without any hope of a flashlight.  In our world of Heilkunst Medicine, the diagnosis (seeing through knowing) really isn’t of much use if the cure is also not known.

Check out these resources on diagnosis here:






CAUSE of PANS/PANDAS and how we treat it using Heilkunst principles (including the sequential timeline, detox protocols, nutrition and the Genetic Miasms):







There are 8 genetic roots and PANS/PANDAS are anchored predominantly to 3 of them; Medhorrinum (Gonorrhea), Carcinosin (Cancer), and Syphilis.  Scary diagnosis only if you’re stuck with these issues and can’t address them. See here:


Once the timeline is mopped up and the Genetic Miasms dealt with, the symptoms don’t have anchors to cling to anymore.  You see the trauma, whether bacterial, physical or emotional only angered the deeper issues at the human core forth, spawning symptoms.

The problem with allopathy medicine is that it is stuck in the material, mechanistic paradigm, so it doesn’t have the resources to cope with trauma and its relationship to physical/mental pathology.  This is where Heilkunst shines and why we have the highest cure rate in the realm of the chronic symptoms with so called mysterious etiologies. Bring your suffering kids … my kid was once one too:


Sunshine Is More Than Just Vitamin D3

If you don’t like the sun – then more than likely your body is full of parasites and candida overgrowth, both of which detest the sunlight. They prefer darkness, dampness, cold. Sunlight is their nemesis and they will do a very good job of convincing you that you dislike the sun and heat.” ~ The Awakened Body, The Sunlit Truth

When I was in my teens, I suffered horrible yeast infections. I was prescribed rounds of Nystatin by the conventional Doctor that did nothing to alleviate my symptoms. The itchiness and redness so severe, I bled, shredded by fingernails that I could not grow long enough to scratch an itch that never receded.

Even when I came to Heilkunst Medicine as a patient (the form of Wholistic Medicine I now practice), I was a mess with autoimmune issues, fibromyalgia-like symptoms, psoriasis, and chronic fatigue. I was overrun by candida. I had a son in the ASD spectrum and my life felt like it was coming apart at the seams. (For the resolution to my suffering, you can listen to the free audiobook here.)

I also could not take the sun. I burned from stem to stern. Once, in Grand Cayman with my Aunt and Uncle, I had two inch blisters so severe on my arms and chest, I was admitted to hospital with both second and third degree burns. After the baths in alcohol, for two days, I finally stopped passing out and could go home to remain indoors or in the shade for the rest of my very painful, miserable trip. I hated the sun!

When I suffered chronic fatigue and parasite issues, I was at my sickest. I was in bed several days per month. I’d never taken a probiotic, and I was passing yeast in clumps in a variety of colours. As a result, I believe it is why I gave birth to my son almost two full months early. I was just that sick, I could not sustain successfully my own life, let alone his.

How did I solve it? I got rid of all the grains in my diet, sticking more to salads, shakes, eggs, meats, fish, turkey, vegetables and limited low-glycemic berries. I let go of the chocolate, sugar, coffee and alcohol dependencies I had and followed my Blood Type Diet as per Dr. D’adamo. As a result, I lost fifty plus pounds I’d carried and started to feel a whole lot better.

My ideal fats fed me in ways I’d never imagined. I stopped feeling chronically unsupported. I’d been plagued with the state of mind that everyone in my life wanted to take something from me; that I was wholly and completely unsupported.

This is also an indication of parasites. They steal from you without giving anything back … the sun does the opposite, filling your banks of health with not just Vit. D3, but a feeling of utter restoration and wholeness.

I also began to ferment sauerkraut, fast for several hours per day from supper the night before to lunchtime the next day and even a full day each week. This gave my immune system the time it needed to address any toxicity and unwanted parasites on board without overburdening it with having to digest more food.

Fast forward twenty-five years and I could not love the sun more. In fact, I’ve lived in Mexico for the last four years throughout the Winter months while the snow flies in Canada, serving our patients three days a week online. I never use sunscreen and I tan brown like a berry without issue.

The sun is one of the healthiest, life-giving forces available to humans on the planet. A healthy body actually thrives in the sun.

I know from sixteen years of our wholistic medical practice that if you clean your insides, organs just run smoother, pores open and the sun becomes something you can naturally metabolize. It will no longer cook you to a crisp due to the rancid oils, blocked skin, a sour gut and cells unable to absorb nourishment, including sunlight.

I was, now, accepting the sun’s primal offerings with ease and absorbing her light-infused grace. I knew some yogis, termed “Sun-worshippers” had lived on water and nothing but sunlight for twenty or even thirty years!  Although, I’m not so spiritually evolved to even want that goal, at least my nickname was no longer Casper!

My children, when they attended a Waldorf school over a decade ago, used to recite this poem by Rudolf Steiner, “The sun with loving light makes bright for me each day, the soul with spirit power gives strength unto my limbs. In sunlight shining clear I revere, Oh God, the strength of humankind, which thou has planted in my soul, that I may with all my might, may love to work and learn. From thee stream light and strength to thee rise love and thanks.”

We are light bearers, spiritual beings crafted of light. If you strike an anvil with a hammer, sparks of light are emitted. Your blood, in turn, needs iron and light to also metabolize. You’re a vehicle for works of light. You bring light into the world. You’ve heard terms like, “the light is gone from their eyes,” or “She’s a real light in the world.”  Our language makes no mistakes regarding the stuff we’re made of.

Like me, perhaps you’re ready to remove toxic foods that irritate your body and fry your skin symptomatically on the outside. Get rid of GMO’s like Canola Oil, grains, pasteurized dairy, foods that make you acidic like wheat and refined sugars or city tap water.

Test your pH by urinating on litmus paper. Once you know how acidic you are, you can start to measure when you become more alkaline as you change your eating habits. Cancer can only grow in an acidic environment where there is low oxygen and very little light.

Try taking little infusions of sunlight everyday at first. Start slowly for if you’re suffering inflammation in your body, going out in the sun will feel like your taking a gas infused lighter to a matchstick.

Try to stick to organic, locally sourced foods as much as possible. Only eat from the outside isles of your supermarket. Or better, yet, get to know the individuals who grow foods naturally at your local farmers market. Eat whole foods, lots of green vegetables, juice your carrots with raw beets, kale, apple and ginger. Yum! Watch yourself start to radiate with more life and light.

Look seriously at the makeup, creams and sunscreens you put on your skin. It is important to detox from this load where words on the bottles you cannot begin to pronounce. Those cancer causing elements will only destroy your health and capacity to metabolize sunlight. There are lots of natural makeup on the market (search out small, handcrafted companies on Etsy like Flora and Fauna Facial Oil).

Also, coconut oil has a decent SPF up close to 20 alone! When I was learning to take in more sun, I crafted a natural sunscreen that I made myself with coconut oil, raspberry leaf oil and carrot seed oil, for example.

Skin brushing is another healthy way to get your lymphatic system turned on to cleansing toxicity from the body. A natural brush or loofah, run in little circles over each limb and your trunk will help you feel alive and purified before your epsom salts bath with essential oils.

The Awakened Body blog cites, “Try and get 15+ minutes of sunlight every single day during autumn, winter and spring. Slowly increase your exposure as the days get warmer. DO NOT just walk out the door mid-summer and spend 3-4 hours at the beach and then whine on Facebook later at home that the sun is a brutal b*tch and burned you beyond belief and now you look like a lobster.”

In just 20 minutes of sunlight, you don’t need to take a Vitamin D3 supplement as you’ve just absorbed over 400 IU’s. In 35-40 minutes, you’ve topped up your daily dose. If you work indoors taking a Vit. D 3 supplement of 1,000 to 2,000 IU’s per day will help to maintain your health for an adult. A child only needs half that, a baby 400 IU’s is sufficient.

Be sure to take off your sunglasses and gaze at the sun ½ hour just after sunrise or before sunset. Sungazing balances the endocrine system, by influencing the mother of all the glands, the pineal gland. Additionally, eyes absorbs more light than even your skin does. Kids don’t generally wear sunglasses and if they play in the sun, their health, immunity and mental well-being increases over the summer months.

Put your kids in sun protective clothing with long sleeves and a hat to begin with early in the season and then taper back to t-shirts by June. By then they should be good to go by the time bathing suit season hits in July and August. I know because we’re toe-headed (white blond) Canadians and my kids generally didn’t wear sunscreen in the summer. I bought the natural stuff when we went on trips, to the sunny south, though.

A good parasite cleanse is often in order. We use and recommend Paragone to our patients which is based on black walnut hulls. When you notice all those white dots in your stool, you’ll no doubt be creeped out by all the parasites you’ve been hosting onboard.

Also, the yeast and candida needs to be addressed, along with heavy metals. This protocol is more significant and should not be done without the guidance of a trained Physician. We’re happy to counsel you in this regard  by Skype or Facetime and send you the medicine at no cost if you’d like to set up a consultation. Email your details to reception@arcanum.ca

Also, did you know that most folks will develop cancer in the parts of their body not exposed to the sun?  For example, 80% of tumors show up 80% of the time in women in their sex organs. I’m in my middle 50’s living both in Mexico and in summer in Canada. I have private sunning patios in both locales for this very reason. Almost 16 years ago, I had an inch and a half tumor in my left breast that I solved naturally using this system of medicine. (Listen to my story for FREE here.)

Did you, also, know that folks suffering infertility often need to increase their sun exposure?  Men can actually boost their testosterone quickly by starting to expose their genitals to sunlight regularly. Yes, you read that right! Nude sunbathing for everyone makes more healthy, easily conceived babes. Read our FREE book on Natural Fertility here.

Thomas Valone, Ph. D. cites, “Sunlight baths with bare skin allow the bodily cells to store light energy sufficient to recharge the batteries in the DNA.” Think of your sun as the grid, you need a regular infusion in order to fuel your internal batteries.

Set a timer to get away from your computer, phone radiation and wifi. Even sitting long hours is considered the “new smoking.”  Ditch your microwave as use the shelf for health cookbooks instead like we did. Walk barefoot through the park (that is not sprayed with chemicals of course) or by the water at a sandy beach. Commune with your natural self in nature. Go for bike ride or play a game of catch with your dog or the kids.

Get off the fake foods, let go of fake news and fake people in your life. Don’t use toxic shampoos or hair care products. Change to a natural toothpaste, or make your own using coconut oil, baking soda, bentonite clay and peppermint oil. Use only natural moisturizers and bath bombs with essential oils.

Increase your vibrancy and enthusiasm for the things you do and love. Hang only with folks who infuse you with energy and light. Let go of that job where you’re treated less than stellar.

Take up a hobby. Study holistic nutrition, permaculture, hydroponics, art, philosophy, dance or piano if that’s your gig. Become a vehicle for inner light metabolism and receive your birthright from the sun. Be whole and be healthy … it’s the only real estate of value that you’ll ever truly own for more than 80 years plus.

Don’t forget to sunbathe naaaaked in the privacy of your own hidden domain. Nothing better than exposing all your luscious parts to the sun.

Three Facts You Need To Know About Dental Mercury, By Amanda Just and John Kall, DMD of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT)

This article has been reprinted with permission from worldmercuryproject.org.

1. All silver-colored dental fillings, also called amalgams, contain approximately 50% mercury, and dental mercury is still being used in the USA.

In 2013, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) formalized a global convention to reduce mercury usage, which includes initiatives to phase down the use of dental mercury.  The UNEP mercury convention will come into force on August 16, 2017, and as part of this effort, the European Union is taking action on dental mercury.  A new EU mercury regulation plans to prohibit the use of amalgam for vulnerable populations (pregnant or breastfeeding women, children under 15 years old) and provide for discussion about the feasibility of ending dental amalgam use in the European Union by 2030.

Prior to the 2017 ratification of UNEP’s mercury treaty, other countries had already taken protective actions against dental mercury.  For example, Norway and Sweden have banned dental amalgam, and Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, and Japan have reportedly limited its use to less than 5% of tooth restorations.  However, mercury fillings are still used on about 45% of direct dental restorations worldwide, including in the United States.

All silver colored dental fillings, which are still being used in the USA, contain about 50% mercury.

2. Mercury vapor is released from these fillings into the human body, and this dental mercury has been linked to health risks.

Mercury vapor is continuously emitted from dental amalgam which means that people are directly exposed to the mercury in their mouths.  The output of mercury vapor can be intensified by the number of fillings and other activities, such as chewing, teeth-grinding, and the consumption of hot liquids.  Mercury is also known to be released during the placement, replacement, and removal of dental mercury amalgam fillings.

Scientific researchers have associated this mercury in amalgam fillings with Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease), antibiotic resistance, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, autoimmune disorders/immunodeficiency, cardiovascular problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, hearing loss, infertility, kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and an array of other health problems. Click here to learn more about the potential health risks of dental mercury.

3. Safety measures can reduce the amount of mercury vapor released during the removal of amalgam fillings.

Some patients require the removal of silver amalgam fillings due to device failure, while others opt for the removal of silver amalgam fillings because of cosmetic purposes (white-colored fillings match the teeth better) or because they prefer to have dental fillings that do not contain mercury. However, the process of drilling out amalgam fillings liberates quantities of mercury vapor and fine particulates that can be inhaled and absorbed through the lungs, and this is potentially harmful to patients, dentists, dental workers, and their fetuses.

The application of specific safety measures can reduce the potential negative health outcomes of mercury exposure during the amalgam removal process.  It is crucial for patients to know what these safety measures are so that they can insure these practices are implemented during the removal of amalgam fillings.

These writers co-authored a chapter about the health risks of dental mercury that was published in a textbook about epigenetics from Springer in 2016.

Amanda Just, MS:  Ms. Just is the Program Director of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxiciology.  She is also a freelance writer and dental consumer who has shared her writings about the impact of dental mercury amalgam fillings with the United Nations Environment Programme, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and various NGOs.

John Kall, DMD:  Dr. Kall serves as the Chairman of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxiocology’s Board of Directors.  He is a member of the American Dental Association, a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), Past President of the KY Chapter of the AGD, a member of the Louisville Dental Society, and a member of the Kentucky Dental Association.

Sequentially Yours

[This post is from the November 2018 newsletter – click here to read it.]

Ever wonder why we peel your onion sequentially? Did you know that your shocks and traumas are what invite the roots of your chronic diseases to surface in a specific order? One patient I served called Heilkunst the most elegant system of medicine known to man or woman. We have to agree!

I used to be a financial advisor in a former incarnation. That was before my son was cured of his autism spectrum issues by this system of medicine. I could not work in a field that was governed by no principles, further marginalized by suppression or trial and error. I needed clear, realizable edicts and repeatable results. And that’s what I got over 20 years ago, when I studied to become a Heilkunst practitioner.

Heilkunst achieves this end by following a very strict methodology termed, “the law of succession of forces”.  Simply put, your disease matrices are layered like a geological dig. By going after each trauma in order, we purchase your freedom, one event after another, each 28 day appointment cycle.

In the beginning things are a little chaotic. It’s like a plane trying to right itself with a dizzying, dynamic instrument panel of spinning dials. However, by a few short months the patient does ‘straighten up and fly right’. Stripping the onion becomes much easier and predictable. The gains become so mind-blowing, often folks go well beyond just the resolution of their physical ills. Heilkunst becomes a way into consciousness and self-knowledge.

To learn more about sequential treatment, read the following blog article here.

Homeopathy Works on Warts!


Does homeopathy work?! You bet it does! ‘G’ had a wart on his finger for about a year… It started growing bigger and bothering him more about a month ago. Grossss.

Four weeks after starting our wart remedy from Arcanum, THIS is his finger now! No oils, no supplements… One homeopathic dropper bottle.

THIS is the system of medicine you want!

What Is Sequential Therapy?

I recall once, years ago, going into a Starbucks in Ottawa, Canada. The barista who was preparing my tea noticed the pin on my lapel of my alma mater, The Hahnemann College for Heilkunst and Homeopathy. She asked me what it meant.

I revealed that it represented Da Vinci’s ‘Vitruvian Man’, where art and science meet on the cusp of our divinely-created humanity. When she asked what kind of medicine we practiced, I replied, “homeopathic”, as most folks are versed in what that means.

Another woman at the end of the counter asked, “So is that the kind of homeopathy where you peel the patient like an onion?  I hear that its sequential approach is the most effective treatment protocol available. I have a friend who was infertile prior to working with one of you.”  

I was pretty shocked to hear her say this and I conveyed that I’d been the first Registrar of the school some years prior. Also, that I didn’t realize that the sequential approach was known by very many people. She ended by saying how thrilled her friend was to have conceived after so many years of heartache.

What Does Sequential Therapy Involve?

When patients first decide to see us, they fill out an intake form describing their basic health information. This includes their current supplements, and pharmaceuticals, and their history of any surgeries or dental work. It also covers the basics of their diet and lifestyle, including exercise, sleep and hydration habits. We want to know the present and past chief complaints, and where they experience pain in their bodies.

We also provide them with a timeline guide, asking them to plot all of their emotional and physical traumas in chronological order, from the present to their birth. Shocks and traumas can include surgeries, injuries, drug use, vaccines, as well as emotional traumas.

Sample Time Line :

  • 2002 August Laid off from work, period of high stress – headaches began
  • 2001 January Severe Bronchitis – 4 weeks in bed, antibiotic use, exhaustion
  • 1998 March Mom died of cancer – very sudden diagnosis, shock, grief, anger
  • 1993 February Broke left leg skiing
  • 1990 June Breakup of serious relationship – many months of sadness
  • 1985 October Hep B Vaccine
  • 1979 May Family in car accident – not serious – bumps and bruises, shock

Patients often worry, “What if I get the order wrong?” or “ What if I forget something?” Don’t worry, as your body’s cellular memory will step up and display symptoms related to the next event to be cleared towards the end of your current twenty-eight day remedy cycle. Think of it like a geological dig, or a multi-layered wedding cake.

Once we start the process, the body knows that it’s on this giddy-up plan. It just systematically offers up its harbored traumas every lunar cycle. For example, my son fell out of bed when he was a wee tyke when we were on holiday. I’d felt very guilty as he’d ended up breaking his collarbone. I should have put his bed on the floor.

I think I was blocking out this memory. I forgot to include this incident on his timeline. When we tried to go past this event to treat the next written one, he woke up the next morning and complained of “a very sore neck”. When I asked him what it felt like, he said, “Just like it did when I broke my collarbone at Auntie Louise’s and Uncle Don’s.”  Yikes!

The body never forgets, and so we backed up and I picked up the homeopathic remedies to treat this event instead of trying to bypass it.

The other example I have is with our cat, Smokey, who’d been struck by a car and broken his jaw years prior. When going through his timeline, just before the event was due, his jaw swelled and erupted with pus. Lovely, I know. His body did not let us skip over this unresolved trauma. The next timeline remedies you need will be obvious, even if not written down on your timeline.

If I had your permission, I could dazzle you for hours with such stories of sequential timeline treatment. By changing some of the details for privacy, I will share one more with you.

I was working with a woman going through timeline treatment. We reached the point in her history of a brief marriage that she felt had been a mistake. He had moved to the other side of the world and they never saw each other again. At least not until the precise month that we were due to clear this event on her timeline.

Doesn’t she bump into him, across the country, at the airport? They sat and had coffee and shared what they’d been doing in their lives since their divorce. She cited that the reunion had been awesome and that she gained closure in that impromptu meeting in ways she’d never imagined. Then she winked and asked me if I thought this occurrence happened because it was next due to be treated on her timeline. I asked her back, “What do you think?”

Where Did Sequential Treatment Originate?

Our mentor, Rudi Verspoor, DMH and Dean of Philosophy of the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst and Homeopathy, was once flying back from France in the early 1990s, when he wandered into the airport bookstore. There, on the shelf, was the French version of a book called, Rediscovering Real Medicine, by J.F. Elmiger, an MD in Switzerland. Rudi studied it the whole way home back to Canada, and upon his return shared the concepts of sequential timeline therapy with his wife, Patty Smith.

It made so much sense to them both that they began to incorporate Elmiger’s sequential approach into their respective practices. Over time, they developed it more fully under the umbrella of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s complete approach of “Heilkunst Medicine”.

A Little Dose Of History

The idea of sequencing began with the founder of homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). He understood disease to be hierarchical. He also made a distinction between primary/tonic (diseases of constant nature) and secondary/pathic (diseases that are variable in nature). Dr. Hahnemann basically said that if you eradicate the constant diseases first (the mother), the secondary diseases (the baby) are generally destroyed alongside.

In some cases (around 12-15% of the time), this doesn’t happen because the baby disease (the pathic disease that is identified by a specific symptom picture) has grown into an independent adolescent with the same characteristics of the mother. In that case, you need to go after both of them.

It’s important to note that diseases of a constant nature exist in time based on the order in which they impregnated our organism. This ‘sequencing’  means that like an onion, they’ve got to be stripped off layer by layer in the order in which they were assumed. This is the reason we treat the timeline in reverse chronological order.

Our Genetic History Is Also Sequenced

Another important treatment sequence relates to the chronic miasms, or inherited disease tendencies in a family tree. Without getting too much into this topic which is better explained here, it is fair to say that our human history as it pertains to diseases, is also sequenced. Psorinum, or itch disease, is the oldest Genetic Miasm while Lyme is more recent. These inherited diseases also demand to be treated in a particular clinical order.

Dr. Hahnemann proved three main diseases in his lifetime; Psora, “Pseudo-Psora” (Tuberculosis), and Sycosis. He wasn’t alive long enough to identify the remaining chronic miasms. The work he did on these, however, laid down the crucial principle and methodology for later homeopaths to identify the remaining ones.

Dr. Elmiger, likewise, discovered a sequence to the chronic miasms. He identified that they followed the ‘Law of Succession of Forces’. He was the first to systematically follow a sequence for tonic disease and for the chronic miasms based on the use of nosodes (energetic medicines made from disease discharges) and isodes (energetic medicine made from the actual drug or vaccine material).

This approach provided the key to unlocking the health complications caused by iatrogenesis (ie diseases caused and/or worsened by pharmaceuticals). These blockages must be addressed in order for the application of sequential treatment to be fully successful.

Although Hahnemann laid down the principles of the dual nature of disease (see Dynamic Legacy; From Homeopathy To Heilkunst, by Rudi Verspoor and Steven Decker), not much was done with it for 150 years while his wife, Melanie Hahnemann, held his transcripts for the 6th edition of, Organon of The Medical Art, in abeyance.

As Rudi Verspoor cites, “It was not until the 1970s that a Swiss medical doctor, Dr. J.F. Elmiger, who decided to study homeopathy, discovered that the iatrogenic shocks of drugs and vaccinations was a major cause of illness and that the treatment of these shocks proceeded in the reverse order of their occurrence. He called the treatment of these shocks and traumas according to their reverse time sequence La therapie sequentielle or Sequential Therapy.”

The next step was the introduction of Dr. Elmiger’s approach to North America. While a number of individuals did this independently, it was the work of Rudi Verspoor (Canada) and Patty Smith (USA), working in collaboration in the early 1990s, who added a significant dimension to Dr. Elmiger’s discoveries, namely that of emotional shock. While this had been included in Elmiger’s work, it was not fully developed, as Dr. Elmiger restricted his practice mainly to children and certain adult cases. He generally found adult cases difficult to handle. With the insights into the medicines for emotional shock, Verspoor and Smith were able to expand the idea of Sequential Therapy for adults in an effective manner. Their first book, Homeopathy Renewed, published in 1995 (and superseded by Homeopathy Re-examined), brought Dr. Elmiger’s work, combined with their own extensive research and clinical experience in developing the sequential approach, to North America.

While Sequential Therapy, or ST for short, is highly effective, it is important to realize that it is only part of a much broader system of medicine created by Dr. Hahnemann, which he called Heilkunst, or the art of restoring health.

This system requires the foundations of health also be addressed, in terms of bio-chemical balance, diet, exercise, supplements, hormones, energy blockages, etc, as well as various realms of disease that go beyond that of the timeline and the chronic miasms. For ST to be most effective, it must be part of this more complete system of remediation.

The Small Print

Nothing is written in stone; in some cases the patient’s issues are so acute that the timeline therapy is suspended until the more demanding issues are addressed. Also, in some cases the patient runs through her timeline at warp speed. Phosphorous constitutions just tend to be souped up in ways where they present their next issues every 2-3 weeks, instead of the typical 4 weeks.

My colleague once served a patient whose life force looked for the next remedy every three weeks. She asked him what he did for a living. He said, “I make fast cars go faster.”  She thought this appropo.

Timeline treatment may be suspended in a given month while a more immediate need has takes over the life force. Examples include going into labor, or undergoing a surgical procedure. The support remedies that month would relate to the present tense, rather than clearing something from the past. The timeline is a map, after all, and does not override new life events showing up in the present.

Dr. Hahnemann stated, “Treat what you see!” As it turns out, a good percentage of the time, what is seen is the next timeline event’s symptoms looming. Other times, it’s a challenging mess of blooming, buzzing confusion and you’d better be properly apprised of what’s what. This is where the map of Heilkunst principles guides the practitioner through even the most complex cases.

Thyroid Support for Winter Immunity

[This post is from the October 2018 newsletter – click here to read it.]

Let’s talk about natural immune function! Are you running at peak performance ensuring that you’re bolstering your innate capacity to keep you whole and hale over the coming Winter months? Would you like a few tips?

Our thyroid needs a good storehouse of iodine on board. This organ filters the blood every 20 minutes and acts like a video game shooting at errant bacteria. As part of your immunity, it is searching out unwanted microbes and annihilating them with spurts of iodine. If it’s deplete, those gnarly bad bacteria go unchecked.

This is why a diet rich in kelp and sometimes even an iodine supplement is recommended. Consider that exposure to radiation, cell phones and computers deplete your iodine stores. Not only is iodine supplementation becoming more critical in the realm of natural fertility, but also for your general health and longevity.

Whether you’re seeking tips for remaining healthy all Winter long, or you’re after sources of iodine, we’ve got your back.  We wrote a book that speaks to whole foods and supplements that we’ve used ourselves for our family for over 20 years. You can find it here. Plus, if you’re looking for more thyroid care, the specific article here will boost your immune function as well. Here’s to your good health!

How to Identify and Correct Mineral Deficiencies

[This post is from the September 2018 newsletter – click here to read it.]

Let’s take a look at mineral deficiencies. If you suffer leg cramps, issues with your hair breaking or falling out, PMS, menstrual cramps, headaches, hot flashes, restless legs, joint stiffness, musculoskeletal soreness, trouble sleeping, cavities, poor fingernail growth, or infertility, you could be in significant need for mineral supplementation.

You may ask, “how can I know for sure?” We recommend live blood analysis with a highly trained analyst or a CoRe Bioresonance Session with our Jeff Korentayer, in order to discern if you’re ‘minerally’ challenged.

We have great tools for helping you to replenish the minerals not available in your foods. Years of Big Agriculture (Big Ag) spraying bio-chemicals and improper crop rotation has leached the soil of its mineral stores.

With our patients, we often recommend homeopathic tissue salts, bone broth, and solé brine which can be both cost-efficient and a solid way to supplement your mineral health. If for some reason, you’re not absorbing your minerals, we can help on that score as well.

There are ways to first ascertain and then treat your mineral deficiencies. Don’t suffer unnecessarily or just settle for your suffering. Often, it’s quite easy to address when you know what you’re looking for.

Jeff Korentayer and Allyson McQuinn have been working by phone and Skype with patients around the world since 2001. You can reach their office at reception@arcanum.ca to set up an initial consultation.
