Nutrients cure ADHD and bipolar disorder

Location: Phoenix, Arizona, United States

Since 4/2000, I have led the world in regard to knowing how to correct depression, ADHD, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, other mental illnesses, and substance abuse naturally. Unfortunately, I am a layman, and one often without the means for basic needs, much less the ability to effect real change. Within my means, I always do the best that I can to change humanity's understanding of what health recovery should be vs. the use of symptom masking, expensive, and toxic drugs.

Probiotics and Their Effect on All Mental Illness

Probiotics and/or resolving gut biological issues is crucial to the treatment of almost all cases of mental illness. At least that is my opinion, an opinion that is shared by many others.

My hundreds of self trials as “a guinea pig for the world" over the past eight years or so of (1) intentionally inducing, and then (2) treating the resultant symptoms by aggravating yeast (candida), "bad gut bacteria", food allergy issues, etc. (and then correcting them) strongly concurs with the above. I cannot feel "optimal" without good gut biology; it is virtually impossible for me to do so. And real bad gut biology is absolutely crippling to both my physical and mental performance (and therefore crippling to my physical and mental health as well).

I did not learn this on my own. Sherry Rogers, M.D. (, William Crook, M.D., Doris Rapp, M.D., Gloria Gilbere, N.D., Bernard Jensen (I'd sure read these five), and many, many others taught me the importance of good gut biology. These people also taught me the fact that such gut biology can have a profound effect on the human brain (for better or for worse).

(1) Getting, (2) maintaining, and (3) keeping "good gut biology" is a key to human health, both physical and mental health.

Don't think once you get "good gut biology", you can slack off... as good gut biology is easily lost once you find it, if you are not watchful and vigilant in regard to its care.

It may be worthy to note that few persons in America have good gut biology. This is a virtual rarity in the U.S. (and many other developed nations), as a very natural diet is needed to achieve such. Who has three healthy, easy to pass, bowel movements every day, usually shortly after a meal, as Bernard Jensen discusses in his book "Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management"? I would guess not many. It is an awesome!!! feeling of well being when one achieves such (this degree of bowel health). I know this from much self-experience, not from just reading books.

It may also be worthy to note that the foods we eat do have a VERY major impact on the biology of our gut. Good gut bacteria need healthy natural foods to survive and thrive, just as we humans do. If we don't eat such healthy natural foods this really impairs the ability of "good gut bacteria" to be dominant in the GI tract vs. "bad bacteria", yeast, etc., if not makes such dominance by "good gut bacteria" in the GI tract virtually impossible.

We must learn to "tend the floral garden" in ourselves, from day to day, week to week, and month to month. No doctor can do this for us, "our doctors"; books, websites, etc. should aim to teach "us" how to do this for ourselves.

Patient empowerment such as is reflected in the above is going to be the medicine of the future... or I sure hope so anyway. It sure is not easy to do so, but I am going to do my very best in the months and years to come to make "this" happen... and "this" is full patient empowerment... such that "we are educated and learn how to become effective doctors of ourselves". (Incidentally, this is exactly what I did with my 15 year old son Willy, I taught him to become the doctor of himself... and he profoundly cured himself of ADHD/bipolar disorder Thank God.

Good gut biology is not everything, but it sure is a key part of the puzzle of resolving all "mental illnesses". I have known this since the fall of 1997.

It may be worthy to note that the use of antibiotics is the #1 factor (and refined sugar and chlorinated water are #2 and #3) in persons that have really bad gut biology, especially children (who are so overexposed to these drugs). Conventional doctors are making us all sick with one medicine class (antibiotics).... and then they are getting rich by using thousands of different toxic medications to treat the resultant physical and mental illnesses that they are creating in the first place (with antibiotics not followed by corrective probiotics afterwards).

Conventional medicine still ignores the importance of "gut biological issues" in regard to physical and mental health. They either adamantly act like, or they adamantly claim, that “good gut biology” doesn’t really matter.

Conventional medicine gets away with all of the above as a result of an undereducated or miseducated public. Topics such as probiotics, candida, food allergy, digestive enzymes, nutritional supplements, detoxification, liver cleansing, colon cleansing, etc. should be taught in EVERY high school in the U.S.... period. This should occur as a result of mandate by federal law.

Sadly, such an educational agenda for the public health and the public good is not part of either the Democratic or the Republican platform this current election year. Should we throw those bums out? After all, it is OUR tax money they are spending. Our elected federal govenment is spending hundreds of billions of our tax dollars propping up and supporting "drug oriented medicine". Drug oriented medicine is clearly obsolete. Wouldn't some of our tax dollars be wisely spent on alternative medical health education in high school vs. more of the same (drugs, drugs, and more drugs)? Doing such would make for a much happier and healthier populace, and reduce our nation's future health care costs enormously.

When will reason and common sense in the above regards prevail? How corrupted is our government by "the legal drug cartel" that it is not even considering such (more effective health education in high school), despite the fact that Americans as a whole are clearly getting much less healthy as time goes by?

Unfortunately, our federal government is much more corrupt than most people realize. There are almost 35,000 lobbyists in Washington vs. less than 550 elected federal employees to make our laws in Congress. These numbers bespeak of great wrongdoing, and they bespeak of great moral shame. Why? Lobbyists are persons that peddle influence (this means bribe, one way or another). Thousands of these lobbyists get their salaries from and represent "The Legal Drug Cartel "(big pharma). This drug cartel "buys and sells Congressmen and Senators", and even Presidents perhaps.

Big pharma is so big and so corrupt that it makes the billion dollar cocaine barons in Columbia look like “innocent little old lady dime bag dealers” on the street. Big pharma has fooled us on TV with ad after ad after ad. Big pharma has bribed our federal government with hundreds of millions of dollars to get what it wants. Big pharma has made millions of Americans sick (by the overuse of antibiotics and no probiotics afterwards). Big pharma has made millions of Americans even sicker, by using toxic drugs to treat virtually all illnesses, without ever investigating their cause (nutrient deficiencies, candida, food allergies, etc.). Big pharma has made many Americans addicted to their very costly drugs. And last but certainly not least, big pharma has surreptitiously KILLED millions of Americans with their toxic drugs, while running commercial after commercial on TV telling us "what drugs we need" and "how much they really care".

The time for civil social revolution has come. Americans need to vote, and they need to find people that are wise enough and moral enough to deserve their vote. (I just don't know all of the answers here, but I sure would like to see an IQ requirement mandated for those that we are allowed to consider for our President, as the times are becoming far too critical for "another George Bush".)

God help us all if we don't take our country back from the corruption of big pharma.

And God help us all if corruption and greed win.

Autism and Probiotics Proven to Be Linked!!

This is probably a VERY significant, if not landmark, event for alternative medicine. Allen

Treatment with 'friendly' bacteria could counter autism in children


PROBIOTIC bacteria given to autistic children improved their concentration and behaviour so much that medical trials collapsed because parents refused to accept placebos, a scientist revealed yesterday.

The effect of the bacteria was so pronounced that some of the parents taking part in what was supposed to be a blind trial realised their children were taking something other than a placebo.

A number then refused to give their children the placebo when they were due to switch, resulting in the collapse of the trial.

Glenn Gibson, a microbiologist who ran the study of 40 autistic children aged between four and eight, said this meant it was difficult to draw any firm conclusions and he is planning to carry out further research.

However, he said parents had told him the probiotic bacteria was having a beneficial effect, resulting in "better concentration and better behaviour".

One parent said it was "heartbreaking" to have to stop their child taking it.

"It was really challenging for us and the parents. I'd really like to go back to it and do it in a better way, with perhaps more professional help from people who know how to deal with autistic children," said Prof Gibson.

"The trial ultimately failed because of the large number of drop-outs. About half the kids dropped out. Some of the parents worked out their child was on the test and didn't want to move on to the placebo."

Autistic children often suffer bowel conditions and Prof Gibson said a previous study had found high levels of a "bad" bacteria called clostridia in the gut.

The probiotic was then designed to reduce the levels of clostridia and promote "friendly" bacteria instead to see what effect this would have.

Prof Gibson, from Reading University, said the children appeared to show fewer signs of autism when taking the probiotic supplement, which was given in a powder once a day.

"Very subjectively, we asked the parents to fill in diaries about the mood of the children. We got very positive feedback generally," he said.

He said that certain kinds of clostridia produced neuro- toxins, which potentially could be the cause of autism or a contributory factor.

However, he said this was speculation and the apparent improvement could also simply be because the children had felt better.

"If your gut is not behaving yourself, you feel rough," Prof Gibson said.

The first bacteria in the gut is received from the mother during birth and then comes from the outside environment, with diet playing an important role.

"They [infants] may be under medication for an infection and that may have an effect," Prof Gibson said.

"There are all sorts of different factors that may affect that [the bacterial make-up of the gut]."

There was a scare over widely discredited claims that autism was linked to the MMR - measles, mumps and rubella - vaccine given to children.

Asked whether he thought childhood vaccines could have an effect, Prof Gibson said: "No. I don't think there is anything in this MMR business at all."

It is estimated that 535,000 people in the UK have some kind of autism, including a milder form called Asperger's Syndrome.

The condition affects four times as many boys as girls for reasons that are not clearly understood.

A spokeswoman for the National Autistic Society (NAS), the UK's leading charity for people with the condition and their families, said it followed new research into possible treatments with great interest.

She went on: "There is anecdotal evidence that certain vitamins and diets do have benefits for some people with autism. However, a great deal more research remains to be done in this area.

"The NAS looks forward to seeing the results of the further research that Professor Gibson hopes to conduct in the future."

She said that "rigorous scientific evaluation" was necessary to gauge the effects of any new treatment.

A whole range of therapies had been tried in the past, from medication and behavioural therapy to aromatherapy and swimming with dolphins, with varying degrees of success.

How to resolve depression! naturally with nutrients, etc.

What follows are two entries that I posted in my Yahoo 360 blog today in regard to the effect Willy's miraculous baggie has on a state of depression in myself, as well as what I think this may mean.

It won't be too long before all of the specifics of Willy's baggie will be posted widely across the Internet, just as his ADHD/bipolar recovery story was a few months or so ago.

Incidentally, for those that may wish to follow it, my Yahoo 360 blog, one in which I post all of my life "goings on" and any significant writing that I may do, is located at:

All the very best,

Allen Darman

Posted at 8:41 A.M. this morning:

Blog Title: One of Willy's "baggies" of supplements... Wow!

Dear friends:

After going almost a month without any supplements whatsoever (due to poverty), yesterday I had one of the miraculous baggies of supplements that cured my son Willy of ADHD/bipolar disorder.

Wow! What a difference this one baggie of supplements made.

I have been depressed and really dragging for most of August. Although I am not all better yet, but I am a heck of a lot better and more mentally functional than I have been in weeks. This
supplement mixture sure helps me a ton, just as it does my son. And boy does this help sure arrive quickly. I cannot wait for the day that this baggie approach is evaluated for the treatment of depression... for it sure seems like the stone nuts to me.

I just took my second baggie this morning, and I have a dozen more left. At least for a little while, I am "back in the ballgame" of life.

Hopefully, I will be able to get back to my writing soon. This writing will include all of the specifics of what is in these baggies and why, such that other persons can try this broad based
approach if they so desire to.


Posted at 5:36 P.M. tonight:

Blog title: Baggie number two kicked in.... Wow again!

Dear friends:

At about 8 A.M. this morning I took baggie number two. Five hours later, by 1 P.M, I felt absolutely fabulous. The serious, and sometimes suicidal, depressive state that I had gone through for about three and a half weeks was OVER!

I am now "writing functional" again. It should not be more than a week or two before Willy's baggie ingredients, and a good deal of other material related to these baggies, is posted widely to dozens of egroups on the Internet.

I am also currently toying with the idea of putting a "quickie version" of Willy's baggie ingredient list in here (my Yahoo 360 blog).

I have no commercial agenda for Willy's baggies. This is an answer that I believe should be freely given to the world.

Incidentally, this was the second time that I have almost immediately resolved a longstanding depressive state in myself with baggies. The first time was this May. I had gone for at least four
months running on the low end of the scale, hardly supplementing, eating poorly, and feeling like crap almost all of the time (depressed). Despite this long- standing depressive state, I knew
after the very first baggie I took that this depressive state was nearly over. And a baggie or two later, it was over (until I ran out of baggies in early August).

I have to admit that a few hours prior to taking my first baggie yesterday, I did do a bentonite and psyllium purge to unblock a number of likely and common problematic issues in my gut, such that the first baggie I took would be absorbed much better. A bentonite and psyllium purge on an empty stomach was a foundation step for me in regard to treating a serious depressive state in myself. I had determined this foundation step quite a few years ago (in the fall of 1999).

I know in my heart that despite the fact that the baggie ingredient list that I am using is not perfect, this baggie represents "a giant leap forward for all mankind". Someday baggies of supplements similar to that which my son and I are currently using are going to be used to treat all kinds of illnesses, not just depression, bipolar disorder, or ADHD. Baggies of synergistic nutrients (and necessary cofactors) are a truth that is just too simple, and far too powerful, to be ignored.

I also know in my heart that I, as a complete nobody, have led the world since April 2000 in regard to both (1) the conceptual understanding and (2) the practical treatment of a depressive state in most persons. This "most" may include over 75% of the persons that are depressed in the U.S. at the present time.

For over six years I have honestly and repetitively stated the above to many persons, and have either been criticized for doing so, or simply ignored. The heavy psychological burden of my having discovered answers for depression that could help all mankind, and my not having the means to either prove these answers out or move these answers forward in some way, has not been an easy one for me to bear.

Thank God for my son Willy, for having enough faith in me to help me "to prove what I know" to the world. (His recovery is so awesome he belongs on the Oprah show or Larry King someday.)

And thank God for baggies, which make it so easy for other persons to follow suit.

God forbid that in the foreseeable future I get some competent help and/or fiscal empowerment to prove out what I know about how to treat depression. The anecdotal video testimony that I could rather readily generate would be awesome. Many persons that have been seriously depressed for months would be all better in a day, or perhaps two days, or perhaps three. They would be so amazed at such a profound change in their mood state in such a short time.
And this would "show and tell" so well on video. In my opinion, much of the public would believe such video material, whether double blind studies were done or not. (It is perhaps inevitable that such double blind studies will be done, and do I sure welcome this day. Every single antidepressant medication on earth is almost a joke vs. what I know would work to treat depression in most persons, so much so it is not funny.)

Many people feel that the drug companies still have the upper hand. They also believe that it is probably going to take decades for "us" (alternative medicine) to win the war against them.

I beg to differ.

I know deep in my heart that if and/or when I even get a little bit of help in regard to proving what I know in regard to the treatment of depression, the time left for the drug companies to have the upper hand vs. alternative medicine may be rather limited, to say the very least.

Lastly, I am willing to take only a modicum of credit here. I give most of the credit to those that deserve it; I give credit to my parents, Arthur and Marion Darman, who are no longer with us but will be special to me forever, to my son Willy, who taught me as much as I taught him, and to my teachers, such as Sherry Rogers, M.D., Priscilla Slagle, M.D., Abram Hoffer, M.D, Bernard Jensen, James Balch, M.D. and Phyllis Balch, C.N.C., Joseph Mercola, M.D., and to many dozens of other alternative medical doctors, alternative medical authors, and knowledgeable laypersons, persons that are far too numerous to mention here.
