Here's why this is important (and it's also why I am now such a strong advocate of the Amazon Herb Company, even though I'm in no way affiliated with it). When we consume nutritional supplements, we're actually consuming more than the chemical constituents found in those supplements. Foods are more than just the sum of their parts. Foods actually carry a homeopathic element. This element is present in all foods, herbs, supplements or anything you ingest into your body.
It is imprinted onto those foods and supplements by the people who come into contact with them during harvesting, production and marketing. And so it is the intention, mindset and character of these individuals that become imprinted in these products that we ultimately absorb into the cells of our body. Therefore, if we consume nutritional supplements that are manufactured by companies with nothing more than a profit motive, then we absorb the energy of greed (along with the chemical constituents of those nutritional supplements).
In contrast, if you take an herb that has grown in its native natural environment, that has been harvested with care and with sacred intention by those who consider that land to be their home and by people who impart positive intentions onto that plant, and then if that plant is prayed over and imprinted with even more positive intention, and then finally packaged and marketed by a company that also has positive intentions because of the character of its founder, then you have a very different nutritional supplement than the supplement from the greedy company, even if these two supplements contain the exact same chemical constituents. There's a lot more to supplements than just what's listed on the label.
(Another great book on the subject of homeopathy, by the way, is, "The Memory of Water: Homeopathy and the Battle of Ideas in the New Science" by Michel Schiff. It describes how conventional medicine has pulled out all the stops to discredit homeopathy through deceit and distortion rather than facing up to the hard science that quite solidly proves homeopathy to be a real phenomenon.)
That's the wrong mindset to be ingesting into your body. Greed is a derivative of fear, and fear creates contraction and restriction. Fear causes your body to tense up and restrict its natural flow, and that's part of the cause of a lot of disease we see today. Many diseases are actually the result of stagnation from an energetic point of view. When things aren't moving correctly, whether it's lymph fluid, or your blood, or energy through your nervous system, then you are experiencing disease. But when things are moving well, you're experiencing a state of health. And what causes things to move? Openness, sharing, love, compassion. These kinds of intentions. And these are the emotions that are imprinted in the Amazon Herb products.
So, yes, I'm an advocate of the Amazon Herb Company. But not for the reasons you might have supposed. It's not that they have a great product line, even though they do. It's not that the company is doing a lot of good things for the rainforest, even though that's also true and that's a very important part of their success equation. But I think the primary reason is because it creates a product that has energetic qualities that far surpass any other commercially available nutritional supplement I've ever encountered. What that means is that these products have the ability to alter the way your body metabolizes energy.
We also know that homeopathy is very real; this has been scientifically proven through randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled studies, and it has been repeated again and again in various trials conducted on populations around the world. (Recent anti-homeopathy headlines you may have seen in the news were based on a meta-study that cherry-picked unsuccessful homeopathic clinical trials while ignoring successful ones.)
I'm a fairly good judge of character. As an owner of a software company, I've dealt with a lot of people over the years. I've also done a fair amount of work in vibrational medicine, healing through intention, Reiki and so on. I've also learned to listen to my intuition. So I have a fairly good sense of what dominant intentions people are carrying around when I have the chance to observe them and interact with them. One of the most obvious negative energetic postures I notice in people from the conventional medical community is their lack of humility. All too often, their egos get in the way and they carry a belief that they are the most intelligent people in the world, therefore they're the only people qualified to talk about anything related to health.
Sadly, this is a dominant mindset in the conventional medical community, and it's one of the first things I watch out for in assessing whether an individual is coming from a place of personal credibility. With this in mind, I was quite intrigued to watch Amazon John and to recognize that he's a person who is not at all driven by ego. In fact, he's quite humble and he understands full well, just as I do, that we are mere messengers and all we can do in our lives is serve as conduits for the healing gifts of nature. John understands that we are not the originators of these healing gifts, and we deserve no credit for creating them, because it is nature that created them. John sees himself as a facilitator, a bridge between the rainforest and Western civilization, and he explained that role with a great degree of honesty and forthrightness about his own journey.
That's a bit nebulous, so let me explain it a little further: to confront your own illusions means to question your current beliefs about the world around you. Each of us has our own constructs, our own version of reality in which we live and operate, and none of those versions of reality are actually real. They are stories that we tell ourselves, they are patterns in which we function and get along with our lives. But people who are true healers and wise, mature adults are people who are able to face those distortions, question them and arrive at a new, expanded understanding. It doesn't necessarily mean they arrive at the "truth," it just means they expand their awareness and are able to continue on their life journey with this new awareness in an ever-expanding spiral pattern, much like the shell of a marine creature.
This spiral grows and expands as the person's awareness expands. And what I learned about Amazon John was that, early in his life, he was a treasure hunter -- a literal treasure hunter! He would travel to Peru and search for gems, stones and ancient artifacts, and bring them back to the United States to find buyers. At the time, his belief was that these were the treasures of the rainforest. But what we see in John today is a man who recognizes that those treasures were illusions -- that the true treasures of the rainforest were hidden in the plants all this time. These are the treasures of nature, the wealth provided by the healing potential of these plants. And he was able, through a personal transformation process requiring several years, to question his own distortions and arrive at a new understanding of what treasure really means. Today, through the Amazon Herb Company, he is able to communicate that new vision of what treasure really means to the Western world.
That kind of shift in thinking requires a tremendous amount of courage, self-honesty and humility. This is not the kind of personal transformation that you will typically find in the conventional medical community. To many in organized medicine, credibility comes from passing the right exam and graduating from the right school, taking the right tests, getting the right credentials, and so on. But to me, credibility comes from taking a journey and demonstrating that you have the character necessary to be an adult, to grow up, mature, expand your awareness and question your present beliefs. And then, if you're really good, to be able to form new beliefs that better serve the interests of yourself, your community, and the world at large. And that, as I see it, is the path along which Amazon John is traveling.
(By the way, for many people, this sort of empowering shift in beliefs only emerges following a health crisis. All too often, we aren't willing to change our beliefs unless we're facing imminent death, it seems.)
But let's talk about the products for a minute, because that's what gets most people excited about this company. And when it comes to these products, I can speak far more freely about them than Amazon John can. That's because the current regulatory environment in the U.S. does not allow any principal of a company that manufactures these products to make health claims about these products. For myself, on the other hand, since I have absolutely no financial ties with this company whatsoever, and I'm not a distributor of the company, and I'm not being paid to write any of this, I can tell you what I honestly think about these products. And here it is: based on what I've learned from spending more than 5,000 hours studying nutrition and the healing gifts of nature, I believe that these products can not only help prevent nearly every major chronic disease we are seeing in modern society today, but that they can also reverse many of those diseases, especially the early stages of those diseases.
Beyond that, I believe that these products have the potential to even alter the mindset of our population, to bring greater calm and reduce aggression in our population. You see, these products operate at many different levels: the biophysical level, the biochemical level and the bioenergetic level.
At the biochemical level, there are a great many phytochemicals and phytonutrients in the Amazon Herb product line. You'll find a variety of herbs like chanca piedra, una de gato (also known as cat's claw), graviola, jatoba and a great many other herbs that are biochemically active. They demonstrate anticancer activity, immune system enhancement, protection of the liver, the pancreas, the endocrine system, the nervous system, and so on. These phytonutrients help eliminate toxins and protect the body from parasites, bacteria and viruses, and other invaders. These biochemical effects are well-documented if you actually look at the scientific literature on these herbs. This is where most of the potency of these products gets recognized: the biochemical level.
Then there's the bioenergetic level, and that's what I spoke about earlier. And that's what sets these supplements apart from practically everything else on the market. Sure, you can buy cat's claw at any health food store, but where else can you buy cat's claw that has been harvested from its natural environment, that has been blessed by the native peoples from Peru who are harvesting this as part of a sustainable revenue model to protect their homeland, that has been packaged and marketed by a company headed by a person who imparts the intention of healing into his company and product line? Where else can you find an herb like that? Yes, you can find that from local herbalists who make their own healing remedies in small batches, but I don't think you can find it commercially available on a large scale anywhere other than the Amazon Herb Company.
They can do all of these things and many more, including providing health benefits for diabetics via blood sugar regulation, reducing insulin resistance, supporting the pancreas and so on. And yet there is a danger in looking at the miracle class properties of herbs like this and relying on them alone to solve your health problems.
These choices got you to where you are today. Along those lines, it is self-deception to suppose that one product or one line of products is going to release you from the responsibility of making good decisions from this day forward. This is where a lot of people get distracted with any herbal product. They think that they're going to be "saved" by these products. What they're thinking, perhaps, at a subconscious level is "Gee, I've spent my whole life damaging my body and now I have this cancer, but thank God this new anti-cancer product is going to come along and save me, and so I'm just going to take that and keep doing all these other bad things in my life that gave me cancer in the first place."
I strongly encourage you to avoid adopting that victim mentality. I encourage you to challenge yourself and begin the healing process (if you haven't already) by altering your lifestyle at the same time that you begin taking a line of nutritional products like these from the Amazon Herb Company. Because what you will find is that no product can replace your choice, no product can make decisions for you. In fact, that thinking is probably what got you into a health problem in the first place, because you may have thought that prescription drugs were going to be the miracle cure for you, and now you've found out that drugs don't cure you, they actually kill you (60,000+ Americans killed by Vioxx alone, according to a study published in The Lancet. And that's just one prescription drug out of thousands...).
I don't care if it's chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or fibromyalgia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or any of these other so-called diseases that are actually nothing but illusions -- they're just names given to a pattern of symptoms because doctors don't know what's wrong with you. I've met so many people who say "I have CFS" and they feel so comfortable that they've been labeled with this disease... they identify themselves with having that disease. What they need to do is get rid of that label and challenge it by saying, "You know, maybe I don't have these diseases. Maybe these are just a bunch of symptoms caused by eating foods containing a lot of toxic ingredients and not taking care of my health."
If you've read any of my work, you know that I study food toxicology and share a lot of information about that, and I can tell you that if you're eating the conventional foods in America, you are poisoning your body. You don't have chronic fatigue syndrome, you have a toxic biochemistry because you've been consuming toxic foods with those ingredients like sodium nitrite, artificial colors, and hydrogenated oils ... the list goes on and on. (See GroceryWarning.com for more.) If you truly want to heal yourself and you want to be successful with the Amazon Herb Company, it's time to get honest with yourself and stop consuming these poisons. Start questioning your beliefs and reformulating them into ones that serve your long term health interests, and then supplement with good nutrition, with healing herbs and with healing foods (garlic, broccoli, berries, raw nuts, etc.)
The Amazon Herb product line can be a very successful part of that transformation. But even those products, as potent as they are, and as much as they are blessed with the energy of healing, even they cannot overcome your own self-sabotage if you choose to pursue the mindset of conventional medicine and American food consumers.
The Amazon Herb product line is a great way to initiate the health transformation process, partly because of the energetic component of these herbs. You will find your energetic shifts to be far easier when you are supported by these herbs.
Did I mention that you can earn an honest living with this company? Frankly, the financial component should be the last thing you consider. That's why I haven't even brought it up until now. But this company has a word-of-mouth marketing compensation plan that's very generous and rewards people who share the good news about these products. What a great deal -- you can actually make a living, a good living, while you are sharing information that can help heal and transform the lives of people around you. At the same time, the side effect of all of that is that your actions help create a system of economic renewal for the rainforest that make it more valuable alive than dead. It's a win/win situation for everyone involved. You win, the people around you benefit, the rainforest benefits, the native populations in Peru benefit by being able to earn an honest living by harvesting native plants in their natural environment, and you also win by sharing the energy and intention of healing at many levels.
The Amazon Herb Company is making a lasting difference. I've been to Peru, I've hiked through the Andes Mountains, I've seen the dwellings in which the local people live -- houses made of mud bricks, basically. I've been approached by children in poverty on the streets of Lima and Cuzco who are desperate to sell me anything as long as they can earn a few cents for the day. The Amazon Herb Company helps give these people new choices, new freedoms and a new future.
I've walked through parts of the Amazon rainforest and I've admired the engineering of nature, up close and personal, one plant at a time. There's a miracle at work in nature. And the Amazon Herb Company helps deliver that miracle to the people in the Western world who need it most.
I've seen people suffering from chronic diseases, spending their life savings on conventional medical treatments, forfeiting their quality of life and time with loved ones. And I've seen others reverse those diseases with medicinal herbs, healing foods, and a transformation in personal beliefs and personal responsibility. The Amazon Herb Company can help people overcome chronic disease and expand their understanding of the true healing potential found inside each of us.
If I can have a small role to play in this, in multiplying the reach of this company, then I'm more than happy to take on that role. Nothing would make me happier than to have this article read by 10 million people. Nothing would make me happier than to see the smiles on the faces of Peruvians, knowing that their native lands are being protected and that they have a sustainable economic revenue model that not only brings them financial wealth, but that also allows them to share their healing wisdom with a society that desperately needs it -- and that society is ours.
In our modern society, if we want to have any hope whatsoever of overcoming chronic disease, we have to get in touch with nature. We have to embrace companies like the Amazon Herb Company, companies that are doing everything right to recognize and leverage the healing gifts of nature. And that, ultimately, is why I have decided to openly endorse this company. It is a company whose values I share, it is a company with a vision that is aligned with global healing, and it is a company that I think is already accomplishing tremendous good in the world. And yet it has only begun to grow. That's why I invite you to get involved. Be part of it. Be part of something that's bigger than any of us individually. Be part of something that can significantly change the planet at many levels: our cities, societies, our mindset, our sustainable ecosystems... even in our economic thinking and free market theories about what it takes to be financially viable. This is a company that's expanding the paradigms in all those areas, and if you miss out on this opportunity, you'll miss what might be the most exciting and transforming experience of your life.
