Ultimate Health Recovery Program
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
Congratulations! For taking this time to invest in yourself and your healthy future. This program
covers many extremely important points on how to achieve the most valuable possession in life,
ultimate health. If you take the time to master the principles covered in this program, you
will have the most valuable knowledge in the world, how to become and remain ultimately healthy.
In this "Ultimate Health Recovery Program" I will identify the important
components of optimum health, explain how health begins to degenerate, what symptoms or
signs indicate an unhealthy life path or behavior patterns, how to return the body to a healthier path
and how to keep it there.
The subjects are separated into important topics below. You may click on any of
the topics links below to go directly to that topic. You may return to the top of
this page, if you wish, by clicking the "Top" button at the bottom right
of each topic.
Internal Biochemical Balance, Homeostasis and Healthy Synergy:
A healthy human body innately promotes biochemical balance (homeostasis) which produces, vibrant health sustaining synergy. Everything
works synergistically together to create robust health when proper amounts of essential needs are supplied
toxic accumulation resulting in loss of health illness, disease and premature
death. Proper diet, exercise and emotional stability are the essential components
required to gain
and maintain ultimate health.
While biological synergy or homeostasis (ultimate health) is rare today it is attainable by
nearly everyone no mater what our background. To acquire optimal health, we must
first gain specific knowledge, develop the discipline and adopt a lifestyle
habits consistent with the requirements of optimum health. Itís not hard but it is required. Health is like a bank account, when
the bank is full of healthy components, we remain healthy, when it becomes full of
toxic waste (trash) we begin degrading rapidly (aging) and succumb to illness.
If the trash (toxic accumulation - toxemia) remains long enough, chronic symptoms transform into disease
Biological Makeup of an Adult Human Body:
The adult body is made up of approximately:
| 100 trillion cells
|| 600 muscles
| 22 internal organs
|| 206 bones
| 10 systems
There are 10 main systems in the human body, listed below;
1. Digestive/Gastrointestinal (mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, intestines, pancreas,
2. Excretory/Urinary (bladder, kidneys, urethra, lungs, large intestine)
3. Circulatory/Cardiovascular (heart, blood, vessels)
4. Immune/Lymph (lymphocytes, lymph nodes, tonsils, thymus, liver,
5. Respiratory (nose, trachea, lungs)
6. Muscular (muscles)
7. Nervous/Sensory (brain, spinal cord, nerves, eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin)
8. Endocrine/Glandular (hormones/glands)
9. Skeletal (bones)
10. Reproductive (male and female reproductive organs)
As the lists above indicate there are
22 internal organs organized into 10 system communities. These 10 systems are the foundation of all the bodyís
functions and serve synergistically to keep us healthy. All together there are
roughly 100 trillion cells that make up the entire human body.
Learning how to work in harmony with
nature and your biological needs by supplying the essential requirements and keeping
toxic accumulation to a minimum is the pathway to optimal health and vitality.
Degeneration of Human Health:
Human health begins to break down when the internal biological balance is disrupted resulting in cellular
malfunction. Cellular malfunction results in organ malfunction which leads to system failure,
illness and disease.
The foundational reason for most, if not all illness and disease is toxic buildup at the cellular level
malnutrition. In most cases failing health is a combination of both. Health experts tend to agree that most illness and disease
begins with malnutrition which then leads to toxic buildup. However toxic buildup can be first depending on
Degeneration is almost always a byproduct of unhealthy daily behavior patterns
or habits. For example the Standard American
Diet (SAD) is a personal choice and is responsible for most health degenerative
conditions in the USA today. Not only does this
mean that ill health is self inflicted by choosing an unhealthy lifestyle but the ill effects of this lifestyle
can be reversed in large part by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Yes! Thatís right; anyone can heal themselves by
changing daily behavior to a healthier lifestyle and staying the course. The
biggest battle in recovering ultimate health is to avoid turning the body into a
toxic waste site in the first place.
Toxic Accumulation at the Cellular Level and/or Malnutrition are the Root Causes of
nearly all Illness and Disease:
Toxins can be defined as any substances which produce negative physical and emotional imbalances in an
individual. Currently we are consistently bombarded by toxins on a daily basis. There are essentially two kinds
of toxins, endogenous and exogenous. Endogenous toxins are produced internally as a result of internal
biochemical (life) activity. Exogenous toxins are from external sources.
Internal toxins are expelled from the body via the lymph system, liver, kidneys, colon, lungs and skin. As more toxins
accumulate in our systems, enormous biological stress is exerted on elimination organs and systems. Over time continued
toxic accumulation results in a seriously compromised immune system leading to organ and system failure. This
scenario represents the classic domino effect of biological degradation (aging), illness, disease and death.
Rapid or premature biological degeneration is nearly always the byproduct of unhealthy daily behavior patterns (lifestyle).
For example, the Standard American Diet (SAD) is a choice and is responsible for most rapid biological degeneration in the
USA today. Not only does this mean that ill health is self inflicted by choosing an unhealthy lifestyle but the ill effects
of this lifestyle can be prevented and reversed to some degree by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Yes! Thatís right; anyone
can heal themselves by changing predominant unhealthy behavior to healthy behavior.
Gradual accumulation of low levels internal biochemical toxins canít yet be measured by typical analytical methods. As a result
most doctors deny the existence of these toxins. As measuring methods become more advanced, such toxic states will be recognized
as much more dangerous to our health. Targeted nutritional analysis (TNA) is a highly sensitive procedure that measures nutrition
and toxicity levels. Unfortunately, this testing is very expensive and out of the cost range of most, including insurance companies.
This diagnostic tool however can accurately detect toxins and their location in the body. Fortunately these is a much more
method to determine general health and internal toxicity levels, pH testing. Learning to master pH testing, accurate diagnosis and
effective biochemical management could be the difference between a long healthy life and early illness, disease and death.
Warning Signs of Internal Toxic Accumulation (Toxemia):
Two types of illnesses caused by toxicity;
1) Nonspecific illness
Includes poorly defined signs or symptoms like headaches, fatigue, depression, allergies, bad breath, insomnia,
muscle stiffness etc. These symptoms are very difficult to categorize, with infinite symptom combination
possibilities. Many of these symptomatic warning signs are acid reflux, hypoglycemia,
2) Specific illness
These include better defined symptoms or characteristic set of familiar warning signs, like migraine headaches,
colds, influenza, arthritis, psoriasis, immune deficiencies, tumors etc.
Specific illness is usually not only much more defined but more advanced and
Today we live in an ever increasing toxic environment with no end in site. Never before has the human body been
bombarded with such a heavy toxic burden of foreign substances to metabolize and eliminate. Moreover excessive
consumption of fast food, caffeine, tobacco and alcohol continue to be widespread. Over-the-counter, prescriptions, and
recreational drugs compound this tragic picture, taxing the human body far beyond its natural ability to detoxify or rid
itself of these dangerous, even deadly toxic compounds. The body has only so much capacity to detoxify itself which becomes
more challenging with age, but when this capacity is exceeded, toxins will be deposited within and around healthy cells,
causing a wide variety of cellular, organ and system malfunctions and failure which we refer to as health problems
illness and disease.
Low-level toxicity from many sources can be near impossible to detect. Yet combined action of these toxins not only creates
internal biochemical imbalance but can severely weaken the immune system, making the body exponentially more exposed to rapid
biological degradation (aging), illness and disease. The warning signs of such internal biochemical imbalances are not generally
associated with the presence of toxins. In fact, conventional allopathic medical wisdom is often without an explanation for the warning signs
(symptoms), hence the standard diagnosis of "psychosomatic" ill health problems (hypochondria). These symptoms of biochemical imbalance or toxicity
usually take years, even decades to manifest into serous health problems. With all the above it should becoming obvious that early
attention to any ill health symptoms is extremely important to not only avoiding illness and disease but attaining and maintaining
long term optimal health and wellness.
Symptoms of Failing Health:
According to researchers, over 80% of cancers are the result of unhealthy
behavior and consumptive habits. Other words, most ill health problems
are for the most part self inflicted. Below are but a few of the many symptoms that indicate ill health issues are likely
|| Chest pain
|| Frequent heartburn |
|| Sore throat
|| High blood pressure
|| Shortness of breath |
|| Low sex drive
|| Rapid weight gain or loss |
|| Skin problems
|| Frequent aches and pains |
|| Bleeding gums
|| Scalp or hair problems |
|| Abdominal pain
|| Frequently cold or flu |
|| Vision problems
|| Frequent cough and/or sneezing |
|| Foul breath or elimination odor |
|| Sleep disorders
|| Swollen or inflamed lymph nodes |
|| Rapid breathing
|| White, gray or yellow tongue coating |
|| Heart arrhythmia
|| Low (acid) internal pH) |
| Back pain
|| Hearing problems
|| Heartburn or indigestion problems |
|| Frequent headache
|| Rapid heart beat (over 80 BPM) |
The above symptoms in and of themselves arenít a guarantee of ill health but an excellent indicator that internal
biochemical imbalance is present, absent an effective strategy to resolve the foundational cause of these symptoms illness and
even life threatening disease will follow. Some folks have many of the above symptoms with no diagnosed illness or disease.
However one symptom is a sign of biochemical imbalance, so many symptoms are a very good indicator that the biochemical
imbalances are more serious. A good rule of thumb is the more symptoms that are present the worse the biochemical
imbalances are likely to be and the more the danger of developing serious illness

The Current Allopathic Medical Model is Failing:
I donít like to impugn another profession, however it is very well documented that while the medical community is
extremely efficient with acute injuries and doing difficult surgeries, it is failing miserably
with chronic illnesses
and diseases. Whatís worse is they know they are failing to effectively treat
chromic illness and diseases while continuing to
promote the very behavior habits that form the foundation of our most prevalent
Doctors are prescribing long term use of dangerous drugs which are responsible for upwards
deaths each year and there isnít a peep in the news about this carnage. Itís true that these doctors arenít
nutritionists but most know that these long term drug regimens are not in the best interests of there patients.
Unfortunately, mainstream allopathic medicine is the puppet at the end of the pharmaceutical industry which
effectively dictates terms and controls the medical industry.
The biggest problem with this allopathic drug practice is that the drugs are toxins that add to the problem of
systemic toxic accumulation which is the foundational cause of the patient's ills. Drugs donít heal; the body heals when supplied
with natural healthy essential nutrients resulting in biochemical balance
(homeostasis). Doctors donít heal; the body spontaneously heals when biochemical
balance is achieved through predominant healthy living behavior.
Can Modern Allopathic Medicine Cure Any Illness or Disease?
I must restate that a cure or healing process of an illness or disease is strictly the province of the
body and not a prescription drug. Modern medicine continues to use allopathic drugs as a primary method
of treating symptoms of illnesses and disease. When drugs fail to produce a cure, radiation, chemotherapy
and frequently surgery follows to remove the diseased tissues that are now
threatening life. If drugs
were able to cure illness and disease, the radical, invasive procedures such radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery
would not be necessary. Drugs are poisons that ad more toxins to the toxemia
(toxic accumulation) problem which disrupts internal biochemical imbalance,
causing the illness and disease problem, not eliminating it.
While the modern medical industry continues to develop at a rapid rate with new technology and becoming more
specialized these specialists are focused on better ways to generate larger incomes and relieve symptoms which
does little to reduce illness and disease. In fact, in most cases, allopathic
drugs make things worse not better. I believer it would be better (perhaps not
as profitable) to focus on better ways to promote healthier living habits
(lifestyle), not making billions in profits promoting health threatening drugs
to mask symptoms.
In western allopathic medicine, early warning signs or symptoms are believed to be various organs failings; however what if these symptoms are indicator of a larger systemic problem like internal
biochemical imbalance? Is it possible that symptoms like
headache, body odor, vision problems, skin rash, halitosis, dandruff, flatulence, diarrhea, obesity,
constipation, acid reflux, insomnia, muscle spasms etc. are all signs of the same underlying health problem,
What if the prescription drugs and medicines that suppress a pain or symptom also impair immune system
response adds to internal toxic buildup and possibly even compromises your overall health
by promoting rapid biological degradation, illness and disease in the long term?
Advanced physicians like Naturopaths, Homeopaths and other holistic
practitioners suggest that early warning signs (symptoms) are a natural body responds
(healing crisis) to rid itself of toxins and regain health (homeostasis - internal
biochemical balance). In short, advanced natural therapies benefit not by suppressing the body's defense mechanisms or
symptoms, but by cooperating with all these systems to achieve biochemical
balance. So, the answer to the question, "can allopathic medicine cure any
illness or disease" NO! Only the body can cure an illness or disease by
achieving biological balance.
Lack of Proper Health Education is A Serious Problem:
Unfortunately, the 12 years of primary education most receive while growing up
along with medical school, is void of the truth about behavior habits,
and wellness. With little to no prudent health education, we do get a largely inaccurate
even fallacious representation of the facts and
accept it as true. I makes one wonder if this largely erroneous health education is intentional. What isnít
taught in the
classroom is inculcated in the media as most think that pasteurized animal milk, highly processed dairy (hormone
and drug treated) animal meat products are good for us as tens of thousands of advertising commercials
each day forming inaccurate beliefs about health and wellness.

The misleading and fallacious nature of prescription drug and medical advertising is even more disturbing but few
have the knowledge to identify the difference between truth and propaganda
designed to promote specific behavior. When the competition for
market share dollars leads to unethical business practices people get hurt and die.
Currently there is an organized campaign to mislead consumers away from dietary or food supplements (vitamins,
minerals etc.) in the direction of medical prescription drugs. It is a
concerted effort to frighten consumers into profitable behavior. For
example, the New England Journal of Medicine recently published a report falsely touting the potential positive
heart-health benefits of the extremely liver toxic statin drug. At the same time the American Medical
Association claimed antioxidants like vitamin C & E are worthless in an effort to fight heart disease omitting
the fact that they both have proven powerful, C - reactive protein (CRP) inhibitors.
To get health active therapeutic effects from supplements high doses are necessary. One of the ways researchers
are able to get misleading scientific results is to use doses that fall way short of required
therapeutic dosages. Another way
is to simply manipulate the studies to get the desired result; either way the desired result is
attained because the intent is not to health or cure but to perpetuate profits.
Remember, medicine is a business and must generate a profit to stay in business. If false claims are not
enough, the political arms of government controls are properly
greased to not prosecute abusers.
This well documented evidence strongly suggests there is an enormous highly organized effort to mislead the public in the direction of
medically prescribed drugs and away from dietary supplements and natural
protocols that have been proven to be much less expensive, safer and in many
cases vastly more effective in treating illness and disease.
It is important to understand, if the current powers that be (medical & big
pharma), who have developed and practice
allopathic (drugs cure disease protocols) want to continue their stranglehold on power and market
share, they must stop the public from becoming educated and turning to natural
remedies to address illness and disease rather than allopathic prescription
Dietary Supplements are Better than Prescription Drugs:
The facts that the powers that be are trying desperately to cover up and hide
are, many dietary supplements used properly in high doses
produce a similar, beneficial biological action as prescription drugs at much less cost with far fewer
if any negative
side effects. The truth is dietary supplements used correctly in the proper dosages are safer, coast much less
and produce the desired health beneficial result exponentially better than prescription drugs in almost
cases. Facts that big pharma and allopathic medicine want desperately to stay
The problem is using supplements correctly in proper combination and doses. Interestingly dietary supplements even used incorrectly
produce far less sever or health danger negative side effects than their
prescription drug counterparts. Even though there is a very small potential for
negative side effects with dietary supplements caution should be exercised by
consulting with a qualified professional before entering into any nutritional program
Consumers are Beginning to Wise Up:
Currently many potential patients are skipping the doctor and pharmacy visits and purchasing dietary supplements
directly from health food stores or on line. Evidently the consumer is getting wise to the fraud that is rampant
in the medical, pharmaceutical, advertising and related business communities.
The medical and pharmaceutical industries are beginning to feel the pain of lost income effects of this consumer
market shift. I hope it is becoming clear why the powers that be are waging this insidious campaign against the
dietary supplement industry. Whatís interesting is the political powers are doing little to nothing to mitigate
this damaging even deadly campaign against innocent consumers.
The Internet and other forms of free communication are allowing the truth to be
aired and cut through the BS. The trick is to distinguish between the true facts
and the BS. Of
course with freedom comes responsibility. It is up to each of us to protect
ourselves from scam artist and those who choose criminal behavior and pray on the
The Beginning or Cause of Illness and Disease:
Understanding the beginning or cause of each illness and disease is near impossible in some cases, extremely
difficult and complex in others. However I will attempt to make sense of this extremely complex subject in an
The beginning and sequence of illness and disease starts with a wide range of triggering mechanisms which in
almost all cases is the result of too much of something (toxins) or not enough of something (essential
nutrients). Toxins are agents (poisons) that damage the human body. Essential nutrients are those agents
that the body canít survive without like air, water, food, sunlight etc.
Malnutrition begins with the absence or shortage of something the body needs and is exasperated by the amount of
time the deficiency persists. Essential nutrient deficiencies will lead to internal biochemical imbalance as
essential nutrients are required for proper biochemical and body function. An organ or system begins not doing its job. Much
like a domino effect as the body tryís to spread the work load of a failing organ or system in effort to
keep the body in balance and healthy. When other organs or systems try to compensate for other failing organs
or systems, the entire body is compromised and an environment conducive to the development of illness and disease
The Human Body is an Incredible Rejuvenating Machine:
The human body is perhaps the most incredible biochemical processing plant on planet earth. It processes literally billions of chemical reactions per second. All of which are innately designed and programmed to build, repair and maintain
The human body replaces old cells at the pace of around 10 million per second. Yes! You heard right, I said,
ď10 million new cells per second.Ē So the next time someone tells you that there is no cure, the odds are they
are wrong. There are a few degenerative conditions that the body has difficulty recovering from or repairing so it is even more important to not allow the body to become a toxic waste site in the first place.
The bottom line is a healthy body is rarely, if ever, overcome with any illness
let alone a disease. Neither
your doctor, nor your insurance company, or anyone ells can cure your illness or disease. Only you and your
body have the power to heal, restore or recover optimal health. Yes itís up to you and you alone. Only your
ability to learn accurate information combined with personal responsibility,
predominant healthy behavior and discipline will
produce an optimally healthy, illness and disease free life.
How to Internally Detoxify and Regain Ultimate Health:
Internal detoxification is the first step on the road to restoring optimal health. There are essentially three
steps to restoring optimal health. Health really boils down to a supply versus demand formula. The body needs
certain essential nutrients in the correct proportions to sustain health and no more. Any excess consumption
exerts undo stress on the body in an effort to rid itself of the excess before it becomes toxic and harmful.

"Illness and disease are
optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen
Itís important to understand that optimal health can only
be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements
are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).
The following are the cornerstones of success with anything
in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you
will achieve excellence in anything you do.

tenacity promotes success
~ Dr. Skip Hellen
OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently Ė keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DONíT TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DONíT TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)
