HerbsofLight — August 11, 2009 — Dean Martens, CH discusses the "normal" lifestyle that can help prepare the way for dis-ease in the body. This video is part 1 of a series, Taking Responsibility for Our Health. This information is brought to you by Herbs of Light. Herbs of Light is committed to health education. Clinical Herbalist Dean Martens, founder and president of Herbs of Light, has spent more than 20 years studying health and the prevention of dis-ease. He cured himself of several "incurable" diseases using natural methods, and his passion is to spread the knowledge he has attained as widely as possible.

Herbs of Light manufactures living, wildcrafted/organic herbal medicine in our dedicated laboratory on 30 acres of biodynamic, organic land, where Mother Earth is assisted in her magical enterprise - creating the foods that are best for our bodies. We strive to manufacture products that are "as good as humans can possibly accomplish" - in terms of energy, quality, potency and purity. Our video seminars and informative clips are meant to educate, enlighten, inspire and motivate. For more information about Dean and Herbs of Light, please visit our website!


1. In the first video Dean talks about the enjoyable lifestyle that got him so sick: colitis, ulcers, Candida, rheumatoid arthritis (deformation of limbs), osteoarthritis (discs getting filled up with bone spurs), arrhythmia, arthritis in hips, back started fusing, and hard time walking. He asked both mainstream medical doctors and alternative health care practitioners if they could cure him. They all told him that he had incurable conditions. He decided that he was not going to study what they studied. Why study something that would not work to cure himself? He studied Hippocrates writings, Kellogg, Wigmore, Graham, and others.

He changed his lifestyle and got all of his health back. The ulcers, colitis, and arrhythmia all left within 3 months. The Candida took more than a year. Most Candida that is systemic is almost as hard to get rid of as the average cancer. The nodules on the fingers started going away in about 6 months. The pain started going away within about 3 months. It took about 1-1/2 years to get the bone spurs off the disc of the spine.

2. I want to be sure that people know that they have a choice. There is another choice other than steroids, chemotherapy, radiation.

Mainstream medicine has a place. For trauma there is nothing better than emergency room treatment.


3. What is health? The beautiful flow of energy and the balance of the energy in our body. Disease is nothing more than the blockage of the flow. We go out of balance. What created the blockage? Toxins. Something that goes into our systems but does not become a part of us and does not get excreted. It mainly comes from what we think and what we put into our mouths.


4. If we have a 100% belief in our healing, we can heal miraculously. We can also instantaneously kill ourselves with our minds. Anything less than a loving thought is toxic.

We've been trained to think less than loving thoughts. We give responsibility away to anyone who will take it. We have to take responsibility back. Please stop killing yourself. Please stop thinking critical thoughts.


5. Foods for Dis-ease: Dean Martens, CH discusses foods than can help prepare the way for dis-ease in the body.

You already know about cigarettes and things like that. I'm going to point out the foods that you think are good but are not. For a start:

1. All animal products, (chicken is the worst food on the market, milk the deadly poison) 
2. Stop all caffeine: coffee, tea, chocolate, and soda
3. Stop all refined sugar
4. Stop all artificial sweeteners
5. Stop ingesting cooked grains with gluten (no breads or wheat products, etc.) The gluten turns to glue. Rice and millet are OK.


6. Raw Food: The finest food for a human is a sprout.


7. Losing our health

We put more junk into the body than the body can throw out. So we start to fill up our body with dirt. Our tissues become hot: inflamed. A doctor is a teacher and the finest doctor in the Universe is our body. The problem is nobody has told us how to listen to it. The body creates pain to tell us to stop polluting it.

If we suppress or stop the pain without listening to the body and taking care of the problem, later on the body will talk louder. We've been trained to believe that the pain is us getting sick. We take a pill, get rid of the pain, and we think we've got our health back. When in actuality the pain is the body communicating with us, telling us we've got some huge problems, stop what you're doing. I get rid of the pain, keep the same lifestyle... in other words, I didn't learn a thing.

The first layer is soil. The second layer is bugs that live in the soil.  Toxins create the dirt that invites bacteria and microbes. We get a pain, we take a pill. The pill shuts down the body's communication and adds to the toxic soil. The only thing that heals the body is the body.

Cancer and AIDS is really easy to fix but the discipline is really, really tough.


8. Hundreds of names of diseases is actually it is nothing but our body cleaning house. Asthma, boils, diarrhea, etc. are all ways for the body to get rid of the toxins. We feel horrible. We go to the doctor. He names our illness and gives us an antibiotic. "Antibiotic" means "anti-life". Doctors have only learned to take care of the symptoms. We take the antibiotic and we feel better. But even though we feel better, we have never ever been sicker. The antibiotic we took is a bigger poison than the ones the body has been trying to get rid of.

Antibiotics kill all the bacteria, the good AND the bad. Ever hear of Candida? Created by antibiotics. Antibiotics is the total creator of Candidiasis which is the largest epidemic in the Western World.

We are sicker than ever because we still have all the dirt that the body was trying to eliminate and now we have added a poison.


9. Normal people are sick because they live normally. 


10. Getting our health back. It is actually simple. All we have to do is reverse the process. Remember how we started? We were putting more junk into the body than the body could ever throw out. And we filled up with dirt. To reverse the process, we are going to stop putting the junk into the body. Now that's tough, folks.

When we stop the junk from going in, the body cleans itself up. The body will have healing crises - you will feel sick but you need to know that this is the body healing itself and you do not want to stop the process.


11. Are we getting sick or having a healing crisis? Dean Martens, CH discusses the discomfort involved in truly getting health back from dis-ease. If you need one day/week to screw up and eat junk, take one.


12. The Lifestyle that Gets Our Health Back. Dean Martens, CH discusses the "weird" lifestyle that can help us regain true and complete health.

1. Exercise - stop when you become uncomfortable.
2. Use a mini-trampoline to move the lymph up to 10 minutes after you exercise.
3. Do deep breathing
4. Love another person enough to give them a massage so they give you one
5. Do the 5 Tibetian exercises, Tai Chi


13. Lifestyles Creating Health

1. Drink one gallon of distilled water per day. Pee like crazy. Distilled water will allowed the toxicity to move into the system.
2. Live organic food.
3. Eat at least 50% of the food raw
. If we gave the body 100% raw right away, it would cause the body to throw off too much toxins too fast. Vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, sprouts, juices. Become a sprout farmer in your own home.

14. Lifestyles Creating Health. A Champion Juicer is an excellent piece of equipment.
Live Vegetable Juicing
I don't want you to juice because of the nutrition. I want you to do it before every meal. This juice will pour enzymes into the system. It is absolutely amazing. It is like pouring electricity into the body.

Food Combining - I didn't get the nodules off my body until I went Natural Hygiene.


15. Same as #14


16. Fasting  - fast one day per week. No activity, no TV, no eating. Do it the day after your screw-up day.


17. Vitamins and Mineral Supplementation - Dean Martens, CH discusses how supplements can help us to regain and maintain health, even though they should not be necessary if one is eating the proper diet.

Even the organic food doesn't have all the vitamins and minerals. Buy Sea Vegetables for these.


18. Resting the Body and Mind - Rest and meditation. 7-8 hours of sleep per night.  Prayer is talking to God. Meditation is listening to God.


19. Prayer and Meditation - Rest your mind for 2x day for 3-4 weeks.


20. Sunbathing - Dean Martens, CH discusses the benefits of sunlight for health.


21. Colonic Irrigation - Dean Martens, CH discusses the importance of colonic irrigation as part of a larger detoxification/cleansing regimen.


22. Toxic Metal in the Body - Get the toxic mercury out of your skull. Mercury makes all viruses much worse than they are.


23. Herbs to assist the body in healing itself - Most people use herbs pharmaceutically. Use the herbs to get your health back and not getting rid of a symptoms. Make sure there is no constipation.

1. Blood and lymph cleansing
2. Rebuilding our energies - products: Endless energy and Female or Male balance. When the reproductive system is not doing well, all the other systems of the body are compromised.


24. We are going to rebuild our immune system.  Product: Immune booster Use herbs wholistically to assist the body to heal itself.


25. Why is Health So Important? Dean Martens, CH discusses the spiritual importance of true health. The importance of health and love.


26. Importance of health and love -

BE AWARE: The electrodermal testing devices have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for assessment of nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, the presence of toxins, Candida, Epstein Barr virus, or the weakness of organs and glands. Use of the device for these purposes is inconsistent with FDA approval. The galvanic skin response device  is a Class II device that may be used for lie detection and for biofeedback.

There are no generally accepted completed clinical studies which demonstrate that the electrodermal testing devices are effective when used to assess for nutritional deficiencies, the presence of toxins, food allergies, Candida, Epstein Barr virus, and the strength or weakness of organs and glands.

Your child's exposure to lead or heavy metals cannot be determined solely through electrodermal testing.

You should not make decisions about your or your child's health and nutritional needs from information obtained solely through electrodermal testing.

You are to discuss all CEDS recommendations with your health care provider before implementing any of them. Further, that any recommended dietary changes or dietary supplements based partly on the results of electrodermal testing should all be discussed with your family physician before implementing any of them.

There are medical tests for many, if not all of the issues that  respondents use electrodermal testing to assess, and  you are strongly encouraged to confirm the exposures identified through standard medical testing if you or your family physician feel that it is necessary. I make no claims that the screenings find anything other than energy imbalances or that the energized water or other products actually do anything other than help balance energy.

You and God are the only ones who can heal you.
