  • The Cannabis Revolution: What You Need to Know

    An esteemed medical practitioner and a pioneer of integrative medicine, Dr. Stephen Holt addresses a plethora of pros and cons on the use of marijuana in The Cannabis Revolution. While the book was originally intended to be a resource material for health advocates whose goal it is to be certified cannabis counselors, it is an excellent reference book for students and individuals who want to know more about the plant. As an ethical adherent of scientific inquiry, Dr. Holt wrote the book to update readers and concerned individuals about the developments in the study of cannabis, dismissing archaic views and unscientific judgment. He aims for the book to be read with an open mind. Dr. Holt conducted his studies with the least bias possible. As the book progresses, more valuable research findings on the benefits of using marijuana are presented and also more misconceptions are corrected, like the alleged cancer-curing properties of cannabis. Dr. Holt makes it clear that marijuana does not cure cancer. According to Holt, it has “valuable adjunctive cancer-treatment properties,” making it a helpful tool in treatment and alleviation of some symptoms, but not exactly an antidote to the multifaceted lifestyle disease. Dr. Holt also discussed the effects of marijuana on other medical condition like mental illnesses, HIV, cardiorespiratory disorders, neurological disorders, and even pregnancy. The various conditions are discussed in every chapter, detailing both the advantages and limitations of cannabis with regards to every disease. The potential backlash of writing a book about this controversial plant considered, it is proper to acknowledge the bold step taken by Dr. Holt. While the book does not lean on any side of the controversy, it does, however, champion an impartial medium between the two. Such is necessary since marijuana, like any other known herbal and synthetic drug, has good and bad effects. A balanced outlook of the popular and sometimes glorified plant promotes responsible usage, keeping in mind that too much of anything can also be harmful. Verbatim statements are variably used in the book in an intentional manner to maintain fidelity of the work.

  • The Definitive Guide to Colon Hydrotherapy: A Modern Reappraisal of the Evidence Base, Principles and Practice of Colonic Irrigation

    This book is a must read for all colon hydrotherapists and individuals who are interested in Alternative and Complementary Gastroenterology.

    “This book provides basic academic knowledge that all colon hydrotherapists should possess.” Dorothy Chandler, Past President, I-ACT, Chicago, IL

    “This book carries the worthy title of “The Definitive Guide to Colon Hydrotherapy.” While Dr. Holt has written this book for practitioners of colon hydrotherapy and their ancillary staff, this book should be of great interest to healthcare consumers and healthcare-givers of all disciplines. There is no doubt that this book is comprehensive in its approach; and Dr. Holt has been careful to separate out his personal recommendations from those of other organizations or regulatory agencies. For example, Dr. Holt feels strongly that colon hydrotherapists should have a good working knowledge of diseases of the colon so that they can identify individuals who present contraindications to colonic irrigation. Regulatory authorities do not generally encourage any involvement of non-physician colon hydrotherapists in colonic or general disease diagnosis, prevention or management.”
    Russell Kolbo, Past President, I-ACT

    Stephen Holt, MD, PhD, LLD, DSc Distinguished Professor of Medicine (Emerite), provides a modern account of the principles and practice of colon hydrotherapy.

  • The Human Photosynthesis

    The concept of Photosynthesis (building-up something using the Energ of light) is presently applied only to the plants kingdom. However the unraveling of the intrinsic property of melanin to split and re-form the water molecule breaks the paradigm. During a study about the three main causes of blindness initiated in 1990 in Aguascalientes, Mexico; Dr. Solis Herrera found the previously unknown capacity of melanin molecule to absorb photonic energy, dissipating it in a unique manner: splitting the water molecule. The very first step of life in plants and humans is practically the same: the dissociation of the water molecule.

    About the author:

    Dr. Solís Herrera was born in Mexico City in August 19, 1953. He studied medicine at Escuela Superior de Medicina, of the Instituto Politécnico Nacional; Dr. Solís-Herrera also is Ophthalmologist by Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México; Neuro-Ophthalmologist by Instituto Nacional de Neurología y Neurocirugía Dr. Manuel Velazco Suarez; has a Master Degree in Medical Sciences from Universidad Autónoma de Aguascalientes and has a PhD in Pharmacology from Universidad de Guadalajara. Dr. Solís Herrera is Director and Founder of Human Photosynthesis Study Center, since 2009. His discovery of the intrinsic property of melanin to split and re-form the water molecule gradually is gaining the world attention.

  • The Immortal Mitochondria: Our Health, Life, and Longevity is Electronic

    I entitled this book “Immortal Mitochondria” because thousands of them in every one of my cells with their own genome make me live, grow, and function as a person with power to feel and heal. I inherited this old eukaryotic symbiont from my maternal mothers may be a 1000 years ago and there may me a 1000 or more males and females out there with mitochondrial genome similar to mine. This biological truth relates to our daily life in terms of foods we eat for energy and our vitality, our electro-magnetic life processes, life span, aging and death. As mitochondria do all this, they fuse, split, change shape, and get destroyed under their own specification of purposeful quality control. I wish to tell my readers that the mitochondrial genome talks to our nuclear genome regularly and caring for it is critical to our health and longevity. The first chapter is about biochemistry of chemical energy production from glucose, the second is about “how, how often, and what kind” of foods that we should eat, the third is about vital signs and organ failures due to failing mitochondria, and the fourth is about diseases controlled my mitochondrial genes. The fifth chapter is an integrated summation of all. It describes the evolution of and power production by mitochondria, mitochondrial health as it relates to aging, and the effects of how we choose to live on the health of mitochondria. I should emphasize that “How we choose to live” includes exercise, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, acupuncture, self-message, and even the way we use our mind. We live by 3,750 million of these nanomagnets in our cells and our life is all about the life of mitochondria within us. We can live long and well only by healthy mitochondria. We must help them remain immortal by good foods.

    Manage and train mitochondria for Life and disease free long-life. Consume Methylation Diets, e.g., Okinava, Mediterrainean, and DASH. Consume Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, D, E, and K. Consume foods that provide for Coenz Q10, PPQ, carnitine, carnosine, lipoic acid, taurine, idequinone, omega-3 fatty acids, and minerals copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, sulfur by way of high sulfer proteins, and zinc.

  • Trafficking

    Have you ever wondered how we age and why we get sick? Trafficking, the third book in a trilogy that includes Hazing Aging and Rejuvenation!, exposes the chronic inflammatory underworld and how it does its dirty business to transform end organ interstitial spaces into a sea of diseases. The book clarifies how this transition is evoked, how it disables the signaling apparatus of the protective capillary cells, and then proceeds to dismantle all of the cells within the interstitial space that capillaries are friendly to. In the end, after mission accomplished, the interstitial space footprint now belongs to chronic inflammation and the anti-organ. In this final apocalypse, capillary cells have long since stopped dancing, and their feedback loop signals to the allied partners have been replaced by rogue influences. White blood cells, cytokines, platelets, and immunoglobulins within the darkened corners of end organ interstitial spaces now belong to chronic inflammation. The interstitial spaces becomes barren and lifeless as we no it. A perfect backdrop for disease venues, pain, fatigue and aging. It is not too long afterword, that the end organ takes a slit to the throat.

  • Why Pills Can’t Fix Most Ills: Solutions for healthier and happier living

    This book exposes reasons for why the American people are some the most drugged people in the world and how our Health Care system is not entirely fostering health but increased dependency on drugs. Big Pharma plays a gigantic role in the ever increasing statistics of overdose deaths, and drug addictions. Why pills can’t fix most ills… because they are psychological in nature and by addressing the underlying cause, we can most always restore our health. The Holographic Psychology® principles illustrate how people live from three different levels of comprehension, producing three different behaviors, affecting their state of health.
