Effective naturopathic protocols to treat specific diseases and conditions are coming soon!

Big News and an Important Update!

I’ve re-evaluated my project on publishing a 2nd edition to my book.  For years, the only negative feedback I’ve gotten on my book is that it’s just too big, too much information, and too hard to figure out what to take and how much to take if you were looking for a herbal remedy to treat a specific disease or condition.  So, I have a good plan now to fix that.

I spent 20 years working with these rainforest plants as a practitioner and developing formulas that were specific remedies for specific diseases and conditions.  My company couldn’t disseminate that information because of FDA regulations. But, what we could say to a trained health professional was different than what we could say to someone looking for help with a specific disease or condition or put on a website. So, for many years we sold most of the remedy specific formulas only to health practitioners and direct to consumers from our website who were referred to a particular remedy by their practitioner (because many of our practitioners wanted to spend their time treating their patients and not selling herbal supplements).  I spent over 15 years running around the country giving lectures and seminars to 1,000's of practitioners teaching them how to use the rainforest plants and formulas with the naturopathic protocols I developed to treat and cure specific diseases and conditions.  Raintree had 1,000's of practitioner accounts and they used these protocols to treat their patients with them, They often gave feedback, and I personally consulted with quite a few of them on their harder patients, and based on that feedback and results, sometimes protocols changed, formulas changed, and even new formulas were created.  Most all of these protocols focused on treating the underlying cause of the disease (which most mainstream medical doctors miss) and not just treating symptoms, which is why they were so effective.

Now that I no longer sell any herbal supplements and am in no way affiliated or compensated by any herbal supplement manufacturer, I can now share these effective protocols on how to treat diseases and conditions with herbal remedies with one and all.  These protocols will also include non-rainforest supplements as well as dietary recommendations, because they were always developed to achieve the best results and not just to promote specific products.

So before (and maybe instead of) writing the 2nd edition of my book I’m going to start writing a series of quick and easy to read e-books than can be downloaded from amazon.com that will tell folks exactly what to take and why, as well as how much to take and for how long to address a specific disease or condition.  I still need to take the time to download, read, and assimilate all the new research on these rainforest plants and other newer non-rainforest supplement products because I can already tell, based on research I’ve seen so far, some of my previous protocols will change. I want these new naturopathic protocols to be as effective as possible with the latest research available.

Cancer, IBS & Crohn’s, lots of different autoimmune diseases (including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and lupus), diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, Lyme’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, psoriasis, herpes, hepatitis, kidney stones, UTIs (especially the re-occurring ones), multi-drug resistant infections. . .  I have lots of effective protocols and lots of ebooks to write since each one will deal with just the one disease/condition. This will make it easier to find specifically what you’re looking for (and quicker for me to write and get out there). I am excited to finally be able to share these protocols with the world!  Maybe after I get these ebooks written and out there helping folks, I’ll take the time to continue the 2nd edition of my book, or I maybe I’ll just rewrite and update the Tropical Plant Database pages on the plants instead. We’ll see.

My book publisher (Square One) will publish these ebooks. They are great at editing my run-on sentences, too-long paragraphs, and typos. They’re also great at typesetting and designing cutting edge ebooks with all that new technology I don’t want to take the time to learn and getting the word out there about them. So I can’t just offer them for free (they said NO WAY!). But I promise they’ll be inexpensive (around $5-6) and well worth the price if you are one of many people reading my book and/or my website just trying to figure out what to take to treat your specific problem or if you’re a practitioner wanting to help your patients with effective treatments. Certainly a lot cheaper than buying my whole book!

I will still be uploading the new research into the Tropical Plant Database Pages under the “Published Research” section at the bottom of the database page.  But you won’t be seeing any new book text since I’m spending all my time now to get all the new research downloaded and into my protocols as quickly as possible so I can start on the disease-specific booklets.  You may see me blogging on the plants as I complete the research on some of them when there is just too much good information to share and I can’t wait.  In fact, I’ll be posting a blog page later today on why every diabetic patient should be taking antioxidants immediately and why I am adding them to my diabetes protocols.   It’s those darned antioxidants again!  This will be my third blog on antioxidants and expect to see more!  A staggering amount of clinical research has been published on antioxidants in just the last three years and it’s exciting!

In fact, I am going to take the time to rewrite the book text and upload it in the online plant database this week on camu-camu (an excellent antioxidant). When I published my book in 2005 not a single study had been published on it and none of it’s antioxidant chemicals had been identified yet. I just got finished downloading and reading over 50 studies on camu-camu and most of them were on what it’s now quantified and qualified antioxidant chemicals are doing (confirming and replicating many of the 100's of other research articles I’ve read on antioxidants in other plants recently). The information in my book and database on this plant is just flat out wrong now, so I need to fix that now.

And if you want an idea on what the ebooks might be like, here is a good example. This is what my ebook will basically tell you about treating your high cholesterol:

Learn how to avoid and treat blocked and/or hardened arteries (atherosclerosis/arteriosclerosis)  from the three real causes of this disease which has nothing to do with cholesterol (with just one supplement that I never sold but always used in my protocols that really works really well on all three causes). Here’s all the research and links to show you why cholesterol isn’t the problem and why statin drugs aren’t worth the nasty side effects. Learn what real cholesterol levels should be based on your age (and real unbiased research) instead of the cholesterol levels that your doctor tells you which is based solely on what the drug companies who sell statin drugs train your doctor on using biased and flawed research designed to sell more of their drugs.  Here’s links to unbiased research that will show you if follow their protocols and lower your cholesterol to their recommended levels you are more likely to develop heart failure and dementia and your lifespan will be shorter not longer. If you’re still not convinced (or you’re one of the 10% of people who have heredity/gene issues which cause much more cholesterol than needed), here’s how to lower your cholesterol by interfering with digestive enzymes that will block fat absorption without all the nasty side effects of statin drugs (choose one of these three supplements for that purpose).  If you’re still not convinced and you just can’t give up your statin drugs (hey, it’s your body and your choice), here are two supplements to take that will prevent most of the side effects of statin drugs and help you avoid heart failure and dementia (one of which your cardiologist absolutely knows about and should have told you about). And by the way, look at this interesting research that says the plaque in your mouth can often (not always) directly relate to the plague in your arteries.  Increased stubborn dental plaque should be the first clue that you may have a problem now with arterial blockages (or may in the future). Dentists might be able to identify unknown and un-diagnosed arterial blockages that could help prevent heart attacks and strokes. (There was a whole group of integrative dentists I taught this to and they LOVED it and confirmed it.)

I’m thinking I might rock a few boats when these kinds of protocols get out there to the folks who need them, don’t you? Especially when folks start using them and they work.

Now, I’m back to finish writing my new antioxidant/diabetes blog and camu-camu book text.

Stay tuned, seems like there will always be more to come for quite a while!

  1. At the risk of sounding undignified, Dr. Taylor, rock 'n' roll! I can't wait.

    1. Well Dario, it was sorta all your fault. It was you asking me for Lyme's protocols that made me start thinking about this. I have protocols, they worked, and they need to be updated. But I was too busy with the book writing... And like I suggested for Lyme's, I'll probably put up a blog page for each booklet/protocol/disease where people can ask questions, and share their results (good or bad), and other things they are taking which seems to be helping. I'm excited about the possibilities!

  2. I will gladly take the blame. Make some fun this weekend!

    1. Greetings Dr. Taylor - a question for you to consider in an e-book or on your blog ... I know how busy you are! It's been my understanding over the years that Cat's Claw is a neuroprotective and quite possibly passes the blood-brain barrier. I am further of the understanding that it is the tetracyclic oxidole alkaloids that are neuroprotective, not the pentacyclic. I've noted over the last 10 years or so that people with neurological issues stemming from Lyme disease, people using TOA-Free varieties of Cat's Claw, were adding Gou Teng - "Chinese Cat's Claw" - to the TOA-Free varieties when they were suffering with neurological issues. It's also my understanding that Gou Teng is to a large extent loaded with tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids. I believe ethnobotanist Stephen Buhner has recommended the addition of Gou Teng to Lyme protocols for people with Lyme-related neurological issues. What do you think? Finally, I am, of course, talking about Cat's Claw as Uncaria tomentosa and Gou Teng as Uncaria rhynchophylla. Which brings me to so-called "European Cat's Claw", Uncaria guianensis, which I understand to be rich in tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids, primarily used for osteoarthritis. Is there, in your view, another and perhaps under-reported use for neurological protections or active issues? Please weigh in when you can. This, potentially, in my view is of great importance to Lyme and other patients and the doctors who treat them. As always, thank you.

    2. I still think the whole POA/TOA thing is more about marketing and not as much about the overall actions and benefits of cat's claw. Why are they even bothering with TOA free cat's claw and then adding another product? Regular Peruvian harvested cat's claw has both TOAs and POAs. Uncaria rhynchophylla does have more TOAs but the total amount of alkaloids is still small. The main problem I have with the rhynchophylline studies is the dosages used. One 2018 study was using the actual isolated rhynchophylline alkaloid in dosages of 30-60 mg/kg in body weight. Do the math... how many POUNDs of cat's claw would you have to take of any of the three Uncaria species to get this same amount of Rhynchophylline alkaloids??? Most of the real benefits in these studies were shown in their in vitro work, not in the lab animals (like it didn't block the proteins to block amyloid plaque formation in the animals but it did in the test tube). A better option for neuroprotection at more reasonable dosages might be samambaia and kallawalla/calaguala. These Polypodium ferns have neuroprotective, anti-amyloid and neuro-regenerative actions and are the subject of double blind human studies on Alzheimer's and dementia patients with achievable dosages. In Europe a herbal Polypodium drug is sold called anapsos for these two conditions. These plants also have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory actions, much like cat's claw. If you want to buy two products, buy a regular cat's claw and a polypodium product. The other plant that may be even better than cat's claw or samambaia for the brain is amor seco. It has a significant amount of a chemical called vitexin which is an excellent neuroprotective, neuro-regenerative, cellular protective antioxidant and would reduce/prevent the oxidative stress causing many of the problems as well. You can see some of the studies here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=vitexin+neuroprotective Based on some of the new links between infectious diseases and neurodegenerative diseases, (for example https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28049398) vitexin might be better. Not sure yet. I'm sure I'll review all this info more in-depth when I do my new Naturopathic protocol for Lyme's.

  3. Dr Taylor, you do 'ROCK'! I wanted to bring to your attention that the bellaco caspi which I think is awesome is not listed in your 'properties & actions, ethnic uses or diseases & conditions' of your website. I mentioned this back a while back and it was indicated that it was an oversight but nothing has ever been updated. Thanks for everything and keep up the excellent work!!!

    1. Thanks! I knew that. (about Bellaco caspi... lol) That disease and condition file and others on the website are from my book. Raintree launched about about a dozen new plants about a year after my book was published and one of those was Bellaco caspi so it never made it in the book or in those resulting web files. I am updating those web files now as I download research and update protocols and hope to have an updated version soon. Stay tuned! And, you're welcome!

    1. Hi Harry,
      I'd give the folks at Rainforest Pharmacy a call and explain your situation. They are nice folks and might offer you a discount.
      Hope that works!
      Best,
      Leslie
