Dr. Kenneth Seaton and the book Prostate Health in 90 Days by Larry Clapp, Ph.D. J.D.
Respiratory infections and allergies constitute the greatest stress on the people in most developed societies. Approximately 80% of visits to doctors offices are for upper respiratory problems. There are two common myths associated with allergies and common respiratory infections that provide strong clues to their management: The average adult has 5 colds per year.
Allergies are not caused by allergens such as pollens. house mites. dust or other such substances. While it is true that these types of things trigger allergic symptoms, the underlying cause is a malfunctioning immune system; "Immunity gone wrong". The allergen simply triggers an incorrect immune system response. In a sense, the immune system identifies the harmless allergen and tries to kill it. The allergic symptoms many of us are so familiar with, runny noses, watery eyes, etc., are direct signs of our immune systems trying to kill these harmless substances. This type of immunological mayhem cannot be separated from the stress put on our immune systems from infections (in many cases sub-clinical infections). Many auto-immune diseases can be viewed as a severe form of allergy where the immune system attacks its owner.
Dr. Seaton's studies over the past years demonstrate that the constant auto-inoculation of the nose and eyes by the fingertip area, leads to an overloaded immune system and most of the infections of the upper respiratory tract. This overload of the immune system through the contact of the fingertips to the eyes and nose is maintained by our congested urban areas, an environment rich in man made toxic substances (pollution) and fast, mass transportation which move microbes from one part of the world to another each day. All of which impacts us each time we touch our fingertips to the sensitive membranes of our eyes and nose, overloading our immune systems.
Germs Are Transferred Through Your Fingernails
When we think of diseases being transferred from person to person, we conjure up images of people sneezing or coughing on each other. We picture germs hurtling out of people's mouths and noses and rocketing through the air right into our own noses or mouths to infect us. A frightening picture, but one that we need not worry about, because relatively few germs become airborne, and fewer still actually bother us.
Germs aren't hurtled at us by coughs and sneezes. They're handed to us during routine-and intimate -physical contact. Germs are handed to us because human hands-especially under the nails-are a cornucopia of germs. If you take samples from various parts of the hands you'll see that while there are tens, hundreds, thousands of germs on the backs and palms of the hands and on the fingers, there are tens of millions, sometimes hundreds of millions of germs under the fingernails.
The fact that the undersides of the fingernails are a breeding ground and a safe haven for germs is double trouble. First, the fingernails are not protected by the "horny" layer of skin, making it easier for germs to enter the body via the fingernails. Once inside they can get into the many blood vessels that feed the remarkably sensitive fingertips. Second, it is with our fingertips that we commonly touch each other-and ourselves. Fingertips touch flesh when we shake hands, when we caress a lover, when we grab hold of someone's arm to steady them. Fingertips are involved when we hand someone a pencil or a dollar, when we touch a computer keyboard or telephone. Fingertips come into play when we scratch ourselves, floss our teeth, prepare and eat our food.
Once on the hand germs accumulate under and around the fingernails, from where they hitchhike to the damp membranes of the eyes and nose (autoinoculation). Surprising, this is the process by which many germs and allergens affect our metabolism... through the contact of our fingertips to the eyes and nose.
The average person touches their nose, mouth, and eyes many times a day. If you watch a group of adults for an hour, you'll find that 1 out of every 3 touches their nose, and 1 in every 2.7 touches their eyes. Even this small amount of innocent touching is enough to carry germs from the mouth, where they were probably unable to penetrate the body's defenses, to the nose or eyes, where they have an easier time causing damage. This passing of germs from one part of your body to another, unknowingly carrying them to the places the germs like the best, is called autoinoculation. But whether the germs come directly from others, arrive indirectly via items we touch, or move from one part of our body to another via autoinoculation, they're bad news.
Lowering Albumin: the "Hidden" Problem with Infection and Disease
If germs entering the body simply did their damage, that would be serious enough. But they unwittingly do far more. In order to fight off invading bacteria, viruses, fungi and other invaders, the body sends the immune system into action. In no time at all, T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, eosinophils, and other immune system soldiers are engaged in battle with the enemy. Here's how poor hygiene can lead to health disasters:
- The battle against germs is a protein-based battle, because the immune system utilizes many protein-based substances to fight off the invasion.
- The immune system rapidly produces more protein-based substances to defend the body.
- There can only be a certain concentration of all proteins in the body.
- When the concentration of immune system proteins goes up, the concentration of other proteins must fall.
- One of the proteins that decreases when the immune system is engaged in battle is albumin, and that's where the trouble lies.
Albumin is an important protein that is found in most animal tissues. Medical doctors know about albumin, and often measure the amounts found in the blood with a simple blood test. Standard blood work-ups include albumin, depicting anything between 3.0 and 5.2 as "normal." Albumin has not been a focus of traditional medicine despite the fact that albumin levels are the single most important indicator of health status. If the level of albumin in your blood drops, your risk of contracting a serious possibly deadly-disease shoots way up. Statistical reports demonstrate that albumin levels correlate closely with age, but are not truly age-related. That is, albumin levels tend to drop as we grow older, but don't necessarily have to.
Albumin is assembled in the liver from more than 500 amino acids. It is the most abundant protein in the bloodstream, and has many important duties. It:
- Protects easily damaged tissues from the free radicals that can destroy cells and cause cancer by altering cellular DNA.
- Guards against heart disease by transporting the antioxidant vitamins that help keep the coronary arteries clean, binding up fatty acids that tend to clog arteries and stabilizing the ratio between HDL ("good" cholesterol) and LDL ("bad" cholesterol).
- Binds up waste products, toxins, and dangerous drugs that would otherwise damage the body and encourage disease. It also detoxifies the fluids surrounding cells.
- Protects the biological terrain by buffering the blood against pH changes.
- Helps to keep the blood flowing smoothly by preventing red blood cells and other substances from clumping together.
- Is essential for transporting vitamins, magnesium, copper, zinc, bilirubin, uric acid, sex hormones, thyroid hormone, other hormones, and fatty acids throughout the body. It regulates the movement of nutrients between the blood and the body's cells.
- Stabilizes red blood cells and growth hormones.
- Plays a major role in controlling the precise amount of water in various bodily tissues.
- Plays an important role in transporting and circulating reservoirs of thyroid hormones.
- Purifies the cerebrospinal fluid, nourishes brain cells, and maintains the blood-brain barrier.
- Helps to ensure that there are adequate amounts of certain key minerals in the bones.
- Binds and transports the "stress hormone" known as cortisol, reducing stress-induced damage to the thymus gland, brain, and connective tissue.
Albumin has been described as a "portable liver" because the liver is the body's chief mechanism for disarming toxins and other dangerous substances, and because albumin, which is made in the liver, does the same throughout the body. It's as if the liver has sent millions of tiny pieces of itself to every single little cell, to round up and destroy harmful substances and organisms.
Albumin plays an indispensable role in maintaining the delicate chemical balance of the nourishing fluids (interstitial fluids) that surround and support the trillions of cells in the human body. If these fluids are healthy, the cells will flourish. But if the fluids become polluted, or depleted of certain substances, the cells cannot help but fall ill, and disease will sweep through the body. Albumin is like a filter that removes toxins from water, like the net that scoops debris out of a swimming pool, like the dispenser that squirts extra vitamin D into milkalbumin ensures that bodily fluids are clean, filled with nutrients, and properly balanced. And when you're filled with health-giving fluid, you cannot help but be healthy.
When Albumin Levels Fall
Ideally, there should be 5.0 g/d1 (grams per deciliter) of albumin in the blood. (Some doctors and laboratories state this figure as 50 grams per liter, which is the same thing.) Lower levels, around 3.5 or so, are commonly seen in long-time vegetarians and people suffering from malnutrition, kidney disease, cancer, severe infections, Crohn's disease, pancreatitis, and other diseases. However, levels don't have to fall as low as 3.5 before trouble appears.
Low levels of albumin have been linked to all cancers, with the risk of developing cancer rising as albumin falls. Albumin is low in all people suffering from cancer. You can track the progress of the disease by looking at the patient's albumin level-the lower the albumin, the more rampant the cancer. In fact, a low albumin level may actually cause cancer. Albumin normally neutralizes aflatoxin, nitrosamines, and other powerful carcinogens (cancer-causing substances). Without sufficient albumin to keep these and other carcinogens under control, cancer can flourish.
Back in 1775 we learned that at least one form of cancer could be caused by "dirt." Chimney sweeps exposed to soot were more likely to develop scrotal cancer than other people. Simply washing themselves carefully every day reduced their risk to normal. Few of us are anywhere near chimney soot these days, but we are exposed to many airborne chemicals, especially if we live in polluted cities or near certain kinds of factories and plants. We also know that some forms of cancer are caused by viral infections. That's why it's vital that we regularly and carefully wash away any germs or chemicals that can cause cancer, as well as those that can indirectly cause the disease by overwhelming our immune systems and reducing our albumin, allowing cancer to sneak in the "back door."
Declining albumin also indicates an increased risk of heart disease. A long-term British heart study found that a low albumin level was a good predictor of heart disease. Another study stated that the odds of suffering from coronary artery disease doubled when the albumin level fell to 4.4 (that's only about l0% below the ideal level Of 5).
Low levels of albumin are associated with several other diseases, including Hodgkin's disease and HIV, the precursor to AIDS. Indeed, you can use low albumin levels as a "predictor" of mortality. People with albumin levels below 3.5 g/dl are approximately twenty times more likely to die from all causes than those with albumin levels of 5.0 g/dl. Many studies have confirmed this fact. Nursing home residents with albumin levels of 3.5 g/dl had a death rate of about 50%, compared with an 11% rate found in those with higher levels (around 4.0 g/dl). Among men and women over the age of 70, death rates were 40% lower in those with albumin levels of 4.4 g/dl, compared to those with levels of 4.2 g/dl. Hip fractures are a serious problem for the elderly, who often weaken and die after the break. Among hip-fracture patients whose albumin levels were low (3.0), the death rate was 70%. But among those with albumin levels 4.0, the death rate was only 11%."
Why Does Albumin Fall?
Albumin levels drop when the immune system engages in a battle with invading bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other germs. It also falls when the body is forced to deal with an onslaught of toxins and other dangerous substances that we inhale, drink, or eat, or that get into the body through the skin, respiratory system, or other ports of entry. The fact that the body mounts a powerful offensive is good, for otherwise we would die. But the unintended consequence, the shortfall in albumin, is harmful in the long run.
Temporary drops in albumin levels are necessary, and not a problem. It's as if we miss a credit card payment one month because of unexpected medical expenses, then make the missed payment, with interest, the next month. Our credit takes a small "hit," then quickly recovers before any permanent damage is done. The problem comes when we're continually battling infections, parasites, and toxins. Then our albumin runs low for months on end and, like a person who doesn't make a credit card payment for several months, our "credit" is eventually ruined. Now we're facing serious illness, and we never seem to have enough resources to beat the disease and "get ahead."
Increasing Your Albumin Level
It's important to monitor your albumin level and make sure it stays high, since low albumin has been linked to an increased risk of death from all causes in both sexes and among all races and age groups." The ideal albumin level is 5.0, but the average level in the United States is only about 4.2 -too low for optimal health and low enough to encourage disease. Albumin is produced in the liver, but there's no way to encourage the liver to make more-no drugs, no diet, and no form of exercise that will spur production.
Doctors can infuse albumin into the body, and may do so for patients suffering from cancer and other serious diseases associated with low albumin. Unfortunately, "albumin shots" don't work. When albumin is infused into the body, it upsets the carefully calibrated concentration of proteins (osmotic pressure). The liver attempts to get the concentration back to normal levels by halting its own production of albumin. And if that doesn't work quickly enough, it starts destroying albumin in a frantic attempt to get things back to normal in the body. The liver doesn't understand that the extra albumin may be helpful; it only knows that something is out of balance, and balance must be restored.
The only way to keep albumin levels high is to stay healthy. I know that sounds like circular reasoning-low albumin causes you to be sick, and the only way to increase albumin is to not get sick-but it's not. When we have an infection or have been injured, the total number of antibodies and certain other proteins rise. Since there can only be so many proteins in bodily fluids at one time, if the antibodies and other proteins associated with infection or injury rise, then the albumin must fall. Remaining healthy is the only way to keep the antibodies and other proteins at normal levels, leaving "room" for plenty of albumin.
Fortunately, we can lower the risk of infection by paying scrupulous attention to personal hygiene. Infection is often caused by the foreign bodies (germs) which enter our body through the mouth, nose, eyes, and fingernails, as well as through cuts in our skin. Good hygiene won't prevent cuts, but it can eliminate many of the germs that are lurking around our eyes, mouth, nose, and fingernails. By preventing the germs from getting into our bodies and causing infections, we keep our antibodies at a normal level, allowing our albumin level to rise.
Other Problems That May Be Helped or Prevented with Good Hygiene
Prostate problems, including cancer, are known to be linked to high testosterone, which is kept in balance by albumin. But it's not just men with prostate cancer who can be helped by proper hygiene. A great many ailments are caused or worsened by poor hygiene and the inevitable drop in albumin, including:
Acne. Bacteria can grow in the sebum that abounds in glands just underneath the skin. Scratching, rubbing, or pinching acne can introduce even more germs to the infected areas.
Aging. Decreased albumin levels are probably the major cause of accelerated aging and contribute to most of the dysfunction we see with increasing age. Decreased albumin levels will increase free cortisol which causes most of the damage.
Allergies and asthma. Many of the substances carried in the fingernails, including staph aureus and worm eggs, can trigger allergic reactions or asthma when we autoinfect ourselves. The facial dips in the Hygiene system literally stop most allergic pollen, dust or mold reactions in minutes.
Alzheimers. Immune system dysfunction seems to be the single most important reason we develop progressive dementia.
Athlete's foot. Our fingernails can pick up from our feet the fungi that cause athlete's foot, and then deposit it to other areas of skin, spreading the infection.
Arthritis. Infectious and rheumatoid arthritis can both be caused by invading organisms which can be kept out of the body with proper hygiene.
Candida. A common problem, especially for women, the fungi and yeast that cause candida can produce annoying to serious infections in the vagina, gastrointestinal tract, and elsewhere. There are women who had suffered with chronic vaginal yeast infections (for as long as 20 years) who had their problems disappear in one week on the hygiene program, especially from the baths.
Colds and flus. Although we instinctively flinch when someone with a cold coughs or sneezes on us (or anywhere near us), most of the moisture expelled from the mouth during a cough or sneeze does not contain many germs. That's because cold viruses do not routinely "hang out" in the saliva pools which comprise most of the droplets shot from the mouth by coughing and sneezing. Instead, the viruses congregate in the nose, which has the temperature and other conditions they prefer. Not only do cold viruses favor the nasal environment (the nasal passages are more hospitable for cold viruses), they also have a better chance of getting into the body and its cells via the nose. Since we touch our noses many times during the day, the chance of carrying germs to and from the nose is great.
Diabetes. Recurrent infections are a problem that plagues diabetics. Stopping the infection autoinfection cycle will help many diabetics avoid needless infection and allow their bodies to concentrate on healing.
Measles. Although generally harmless when it strikes in childhood, measles can be a very serious disease for adults. It's very difficult to get people, especially children, not to scratch or touch themselves when infected, raising the likelihood of contagion. Excellent hygiene of the hands, especially the fingernails, may help to keep the disease contained.
Pneumonia. Often called the senior citizen's "best friend" because it leads to a relatively quick and painless death, pneumonia often strikes after or in conjunction with other respiratory ailments. This means that a cold or flu can prepare the way for pneumonia-the same cold and flu that can be prevented with impeccable hygiene.
Worms. Almost everyone plays host to these tiny invaders at some point in their life-and perhaps many times. Worm eggs are easily picked up by our fingernails when we touch various surfaces or other people, and then enter our body via the mouth, nose, or eyes when we touch ourselves. Worms can be draining and debilitating, damaging body tissue and robbing of us nutrients and energy. It's best to wash away worm eggs before they get inside and force us to employ stronger measures to get rid of them.
And that's not all. AIDS, chicken pox, circulatory problems, cystic fibrosis, dandruff, ear and eye infections, fat metabolism disturbances, herpes, multiple sclerosis, sex hormone imbalances, skin diseases of various kinds, and thyroid disorders can also be helped or avoided by good hygiene, which helps prevent germs from entering the body and keeps albumin levels up.
Too Simple to Be True?
This sounds like a simple idea, perhaps too simple to be worthwhile. However, it is no more than an extension of the work of the great Austrian doctor, Ignaz Semmelweis, who created an incredible uproar in the medical community in the 1840s when he insisted that doctors wash their hands before examining women in the maternity ward. (The doctors often came right to the maternity ward from the morgue, where they had been dissecting cadavers, without stopping to wash their hands.) Pregnant women used to plead to be cared for by the midwives rather than doctors, because those who were cared for by the midwives (who did not cut up dead bodies) had a much higher survival rate. But the doctors refused to heed Dr. Semmelweis' plea. They were insulted by the very idea that they might be carrying germs to their patients and killing them. So they drove Dr. Sernmelweis out of the hospital and into the insane asylum, where he died.
Yes, washing your hands sounds like a very simple solution to an incredibly complex set of problems, but the simplest ideas are often the best. Sometimes changing just one thing produces dramatic results. Scurvy used to decimate the crews of ships sailing the high seas in the 15 , 16th, and 17th centuries. The problem was solved when sailors began eating citrus fruits or drinking lemon or lime juice. Pellagra was a terrible scourge for many centuries in various countries. It attacked many in the United States, leading to the "Four D's": diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia, and death. This mysterious and impossibly complex disease was eradicated by adding niacin, one of the B vitamins, to the diet. A solution doesn't have to be complex. It simply has to work. And good hygiene works!
As is often the case in Nature, the solution is astonishingly simple and reliable! Advanced personal hygiene of the fingertip area, especially under and around the fingernails, and by the daily cleansing of membranes in the front of the nose and around the eyes can remove the overload from our immune systems and reduce the number of clinical and sub-clinical infections of the upper respiratory tract to levels never before thought possible. This non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical solution is surprising simple and effective. Advanced hygiene is a more scientific approach to washing that keeps germs, environmental toxins and allergens away from our bodies before they can cause any stress or damage to our systems.
Further, once the overload is removed from our immune systems, many allergies are self correcting. Not only does advanced personal hygiene reduce the amount of auto-inoculation of allergens, but once the overload is removed from our immune systems, the allergen that used to trigger allergic responses no longer causes immunological mayhem to our systems. The allergy is gone. Even though people may have different genetic predisposition's to allergies, stress and frequency of illness, it is an individuals standard of hygiene that determines the differences between people, not differences such as race, social or income levels.
The skin is not just a covering over our bodies. It is an organ, like the heart, liver or brain. In fact, it is the largest organ in the body, and one of the most complex. How would you wash your heart, liver or brain each day? In reality, the skin is an endocrine organ, part of our immune systems. It is a vital and integral part of the immune system itself T cells, the master cells of the immune system, after passing through the thymus, migrate to the skin's surface where, amazingly, they receive maturation hormones from skin cells. Even tiny traces of chemicals can interfere with the skin cell's ability to produce these complex hormones which are vital for maintaining the immune system throughout our lives.
The sense of touch and blood flow and sensitivity of the fingertips is so extraordinary that a blind person can read by feeling. The fingertips are a real extension of our brain. Dolphins, with very large brains, can never build any civilization or even weapons to protect themselves.
-Our hands, with their opposable thumbs, are perhaps the most remarkable design in all of nature.
The area under the fingernail has no dead horny skin layer and is very thin. The blood flow to the nail bed is about the most complex of the entire body. Constant use of chemicals under and around the fingernails can cause those chemicals to be absorbed directly into the blood stream. One dangerous side effect of constantly applying antiseptics/disinfectants to the fingertips is the introduction of chemicals into the delicate tissues of the eyes, nose, skin, hair and food through touch.
Further, the skin, particularly of the fingernail area, is teeming with a wide variety of germs, something like the natural flora of the rain forests in South America. These germs should be in perfect balance, competing and producing complex chemicals that prevent colonization by pathogenic microbes. Amazingly, many people become sick because they do not have enough of the correct type of germs on their skin. We call this the "natural disinfecting power" of the skin. Natural oils, waxes and secretions should be on the skin and perhaps are vital in the production of the hormones that cause T cells to mature.
Antiseptics, Disinfectants & Antibacterial Agents
Over the last 15 years, Dr. Seaton formulated and tested approximately 5,000 different soaps. For years he tried every type of antiseptic/disinfectant/ antibacterial agents available. They ALL failed for the following reasons: (1) Most are not effective against ALL types of germs, thus some overgrow. (2) The combination of several different types of these is highly toxic, and causes stress for the immune system. (3) ALL chemicals that kill germs will kill people, if used in sufficient concentrations or over many years. (4) These chemicals disturb the natural balance of healthy microflora. (5) Over a period of time, all substances applied to the skin are absorbed through it and affect the body's internal metabolism and (6) the emulsion of the soap, when tiny traces are introduced into the eyes and nose, sends the immune system into disarray and contaminates the delicate tissues.
Further, there is grave concern in the medical community about the overuse of antibiotic medications, which has given rise to all sorts of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and deadly new infections. Now the overuse of antibacterial soaps is causing us similar concern. Our common skin flora includes a wide range of germs that are normally harmless; in fact, they compete with disease-causing microorganisms and in many cases provide a natural immunity against disease. Too many germs may pose a threat; too few, and we have an artificially sterile biological ecosystem in which virulent new organisms may take hold and flourish.
High Performance Hygiene Facial and Body Soap, by trial and error, enormous research and scientific design, does NOT disturb the natural disinfecting power of the skin, does NOT disturb the immunologic function of skin cells producing these complex hormones and is NOT toxic, no matter how many times it is used, even on a newborn baby. Dr. Seaton is constantly striving to improve his product, especially in its emulsion so it does not stress the immune system's ability to recognize self from non-self.
His High Performance Hygiene soap is a natural product. That means it is NOT made from petroleum products. Many soaps today are. Many manufactures use the carbon chain from petroleum products to develop a hydrophobic and hydrophilic carbon chain. For example; many manufacturers of consumer soaps use a type of ingredient similar to brake fluid called Diethylene Glycol or Triethylene Glycol. These substances are used to give the soap a smooth non-drying look, however, they are completely unnatural to the skin. These detergent-type soaps made from petroleum products are completely unnatural and remove the essential skin lipids. It is important to note: The skin is an organ, like the heart and the liver. Ask yourself the questions: "Would you rub brake fluid all over your liver everyday for 50 years?" "Would you have a healthy liver? "
An important test for a soap is: Can you eat a quart of it with no effect? There is a scale of poisons normally used in the pharmaceutical industry. For example; Nicotine, heroin and cyanide are S6, this means only a few drops can kill. A natural soap should be S1, practically non-toxic, because no-one can eat enough of it to cause any problems. The High Performance Hygiene soap is so safe, that many people have reported to Dr. Seaton that their cats or dogs have eaten half a tub. I tell them not to worry. It will do them more good than harm. I have to make certain that my dog doesn't get near the soap because he tends to eat it as well. Fortunately, I keep my dog outside. Animals have remarkable sense of smell and taste and seem to know what is poisonous and what is not.
As many do, making soap with Diethylene, Ethylene, Triethylene Glycol, or even Propylene Glycol is completely against common sense. To give some idea of the side effects the world's most prestigious Pharmacopoeia (Martingale, 28th ed.), published by direction of The Council of the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain states the following about these chemicals:
'Diethylene and Triethylene Glycol; A colorless almost odorless hydroscopic syrupy liquid with a sharp sweet taste. The toxic effect following ingestion by mouth are; depression of the central nervous system, degenerative changes in the kidneys and liver. The symptoms and effects are those similar to those produced by Ethylene Glycol intoxication. Seven children, aged 6 to 31 months, died following ingestion of a preparation in which the solvent was found to be Diethylene Glycol.'
Because the skin absorbs most substances that are applied to it, the soap maker needs to pay careful attention to these matters. This is particularly important when substances are applied under and around the fingernails where the skin is very thin and has no dead skin horny layer and a very high blood flow. In addition, whatever you apply to the fingertips ends up getting into the eyes and nose because of the astonishing frequency of self-inoculation (the touching of the fingertips to the eyes and nose). Further, the skin must contain the oils, fats, waxes and enzymes plus germs that were designed by Nature. A soap not only must clean the skin, it must replace the oils that are washed away. It must replace the oils as close to those designed by nature. The genius learns from nature.
The soap chemist must have a knowledge in immunology, biochemistry, dermatology, physiology, as well as chemistry. Dr. Seaton spent over 16 years in full time research attempting to make the world's most scientific soap. His efforts resulted in a revolutionary Tub Soap. It is the easiest way to clean the fingernails, hands, skin and hair. Young children and old people cannot handle a bar of soap. The bar of soap and the liquid pump are totally useless In cleaning under and around the fingernail area in all ages, which is the most important area with the highest concentration of germs. Iif there are 10 million germs on the hands, it is estimated that 9.9 million are under and around the fingernails. The bar or liquid soap totally concentrates on cleaning the palm and back of the hands. This is equivalent to hunting crocodiles in the Sahara desert. There are none there! Under and around the fingernails where the germs are is equivalent to the Nile valley where all the crocodiles can be found.
Further, because we are an animal and have animal fats and oils on our skin, it is impossible to make a soap from pure vegetable oils that is going to restore the natural skin lipids, and ensure that the natural disinfecting power of the skin remains in tact. It is essential to make soap from a combination of animal and vegetable oils. Many native races living under natural conditions have perfect skin, and use special soaps derived from plants and animal fats. Remember, you are as old as your skin! You areas attractive as your skin! Your immune system Is as good as your skin! Your health can be determined by your skin, and you are recognized by those who know you by your skin.
Instructions for the Hygiene System
Throughout history, people living in cleaner societies have had higher albumin levels and longer lives. Dirty fingernails, which are indicative of overall cleanliness, have long been associated with lower albumin levels. Cleanliness is certainly a path to better health and longer life! Regular washing of the hands and face-at least five times a day-is an excellent start, but it's only a beginning. Careful scrubbing for a full minute, which few of us do, can remove up to 90% of the germs from most of the body, but not the fingernails. Neither will regular hand and face washing eliminate the germs hiding in the nose and eyes. And scrubbing with regular soap is not enough. In fact, washing with some soaps can actually increase the numbers of germs. Something more is needed.
Here are the instructions for using the various soaps in the Hygiene system:
1. Try to use a bath and not a shower. You could use however shower in the morning but it would be best to have a bath at night. When you take your bath but one half to one full cup of salt in the tub. This will help clean the genital tract, rectum and skin. If you do not have well water and use municipal water it is likely your water has chlorine in it. In this case it would be best to fill your tub from the shower head after you have attached a chlorine filter.
2. If you are a man NEVER insert your fingers into a woman's vagina unless your fingernails are clean with this system. If you are a female do not allow digit penetration of your vagina. If you break this rule you will greatly increase your risk for acquiring a vaginal infection.
3. Do NOT bite your nails. This habit should be stopped immediately! One can go to any pharmacy and obtain a solution that is used to help baby's from sucking their thumbs. It is non toxic and will work in days to stop you from biting your nails.
4. If you are a woman with long nails cut them to regular size. It will be virtually impossible to clean your nails well if they are very long. The other, perhaps more important issue, is that long nails prevent stimulation of the fingertips. If this happens for a prolonged time you will actually get brain atrophy. The brain requires regular stimulation from the fingertips to stay healthy.
5. Try to get to bed by 9 PM (10 PM at the latest). This will maximize your peak cortisol levels.
Hand Soap and Facial Dips
1. This system of hygiene replaces bar, liquid, and hair soaps, as well as skin creams. You must follow instructions exactly to get the results.
2. If the soap dries out, put the lid back on.
3. Hand washing. It is essential to prod the thumbs and fingernails (with dry hands) into the soap several times for approximately three seconds. Make certain to stick your fingers so that the nails is completely covered with the soap. It is also helpful to rotate the fingers to make certain the soaps is inserted on the sides of the nail. Use the excess soap clinging to the fingertips to rub all over the rest of the hands. Then wet, create lather, and rinse. Wash hands at least five times a day.
4. Skin cream: These soaps contain their own unequaled moisturizer. For best results do not use any skin cream. If necessary, we recommend sunflower oil.
5. Face washing. Massage the soap into the skin, lather, then rinse. For those with acne or other skin problems, use frequently. The facial dip is explained below.
6. Bath/shower. Use the sponge supplied. Wet both body and the sponge. Then turn off water and create a rich lather using the sponge and soap. Rinse.
7. Hair. Wet hair, use plenty of soap, massage into the scalp for 30 seconds, then rinse. Use a conditioner only if necessary.
8. Facial Dip A & C. Use Facial Dip A (hydrogen peroxide/zinc/magnesium) most of the time, preferably first thing in the morning, because it's very soothing to the nasal passageway and eyes. Use Facial Dip C (iodine/HOI) especially at the first sign of any infection (usually if Facial Dip A isn't working).
