A Thick, Rubbery, Ropey Material On The Colon?

Take a look at this:

I got this from clinicalgate. It's a dissection of the colon. I recall skeptics a while back saying that gastroenterologists only see blood vessels and clean tissue like this:

when they peer into the colon. I feel like I am being gaslighted. Let's do some reality testing. I don't see any blood vessels or ridges in the dissection. But what I do see is a thick, rubbery material. The pathologist who commented about this dissection did not mention this abnormality as if it is normal. Instead, the pathologist said there was a moderate amount of chronic inflammation in the lamina propria, which is a layer of the mucosa just below the epithelium. Look at the bottom part of the dissection. You see a tan/pink, rubbery, ropy material. Is that mucoid rope? The overwhelming majority of the mucoid rope I observed coming out of me was a light brown color.

Mucoid Plaque is Necrotic Tissue Stupid

What mucoid plaque actually is has been hidden in plain site — and everyone has been too dumb to recognize it. In case you did not know, Benard Jensen named his book "Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management" because he claims his cleansing program will remove "old underactive tissue".[1] If you look up necrotic tissue in a book of wound healing, you will see that there are two types: slough and eschar. Slough is moist, less necrotic, mucoid, loosely adherent, and yellowish-brown or tan whereas eschar is dry, more necrotic, leathery, firmly adherent, and either gray, black, brown, or olive-green.[2] Now believe it or not, Robert Gray, in his book The Colon Health Handbook actually described the difference between slough and eschar — he just didn't realize it. He described two types of mucoid plaque: putrefactive matter and postputrefactive matter. He said that "putrefactive matter" (it's actually slough) is moist, still decaying, and easily removable whereas "postputrefactive matter" (it's actually eschar) is dry, no longer putrefying, rubbery, glued firmly onto the colon, and is usually grey, black, dark brown, or dark green in color.[3]

Generally speaking, textbooks on wound healing describe necrotic tissue as "black", "brown", "gray", "yellow", "olive-green", "hardened", "soft", "mucoid", "stringy", "leathery", "putrid" and "foul".[4] This is exactly how Richard Anderson, Robert Gray, Benard Jensen, and Victor Earl Irons clinically described mucoid plaque.[5] Fibrin often mixes in with necrotic tissue. It is "sticky" and "rubbery", and may be visible as "strands" or "thick sheets".[6] Notice that "sticky" and "rubbery" is precisely how mucoid plaque has been described.[5] Notice also that Walter Bastedo [7] described mucoid plaque as "strings" or "sheets":

"When one sees the dirty gray, brown or blackish sheets, strings and rolled up wormlike masses of tough mucus with a rotten or dead-fish odor that are obtained by colon irrigations, one does not wonder that these patients feel ill and that they obtain relief and show improvement as the result of the irrigation."

This is the same mucoid plaque stuff that Richard Anderson described: he once witnessed his friend eliminate a "blackish grey snake-like mass".[8] Richard mentioned that it can have a foul odor,[5] which I assume is the same odor that Walter Bastedo described: a rotten or dead-fish odor, which is necrotic tissue.

Richard Anderson is really foolish. He thinks this:

Endoscopic photograph of mucoid plaque. Its from the fourth edition of "Clinical Gastroenterology" by Howard M. Spiro.

is an example of mucoid plaque.[9] I agree it is, but the caption under the photo identifies it as "necrotic mucosa" that is "sloughing off extensively".[10] That would mean then that mucoid plaque is necrotic tissue. I pointed this out to him in an email, but he disagrees. He stands by his unsupported theory that mucoid plaque is coagulated mucin. Seriously, isn't that spectacularly stupid?

[5] Within pages 92 through 94 of Richard Anderson's book Cleanse & Purify Thyself Book Two he describes mucoid plaque as "soft", "gray", "yellow", "green", "light brown to black", "blackish green", "foul", "mucoid" and like "wet leather or rubber". On page 81 of Richard Anderson's book Cleanse & Purify Thyself Book One he describes mucoid plaque as like "long leather or rubber-like rope". On either page 8, 67, or 30 of Robert Gray's twelfth revised edition of The Colon Health Handbook he describes mucoid plaque as "sticky", "rubbery", "putrefactive", "black", "dark brown", "dark green", "hardened", "grey" or "mucoid". In Bernard Jensen's book Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management he describes mucoid plaque as "black", "foul", "putrid", "stringy", "sticky" and "hard as truck tire rubber". In Victor Earl Iron's booklet The Destruction of Your Own Natural Protective Mechanism he describes mucoid plaque as "foul smelling", "stringy", "grey", "brown", "black" and like "hardened rubber".

The Essene Gospel of Peace is a Fake

Richard Anderson was a fan of The Essene Gospal of Peace. It talks about how Jesus cured the sick by teaching them to fast, to eat a raw vegan diet (except for goat's milk) and how to give themselves enemas to remove "hard and soft abominations" and intestinal worms. A guy named Edmond Bordeaux Szekely claims he translated it from an ancient text he discovered in the Vatican.

Edmond Szekely is lying to you. It's not an ancient text. He made it all up, and I can prove it to you. If you compare Arnold Ehret's book Mucusless Diet Healing System with The Essene Gospel of Peace, you will see that they mirror each other exceptionally well. See the comparisons for yourself:

✟ Arnold Ehret used the "Flame of Life" metaphor. The Essene Gospel of Peace used the "fire of life" metaphor.

✟ They both say that you will not be able to get into heaven unless you physically cleanse the inside of your body. For example, Arnold Ehret said: "But you cannot pass the gate, watched over by the angel with the flaming sword, until you have gone through the purgatory (cleansing fire) of fasting and diet of healing - cleansing, a physiological purifying, by the 'Flame of Life' in your own body!". Compare this to The Essene Gospel of Peace which says: "No man may come before the face of God whom the angel of water lets not pass." If you look at the context, you will see that the angel of water is an enema.

✟ They both teach eating foods only in season and not eating more than three kinds of foods at one time. For example, Arnold Ehret said: "No animal when eating combines different foods at the same time . . . The ideal and at the same time most natural method of eating for man is one kind of fresh fruit, in season . . . In general, it is best never to use more than three kinds with the same combination." Compare this to The Essene Gospel of Peace which says: "Be content with two or three sorts of food, which you will find always upon the table of our Earthly Mother."

✟ They both preach obeying nature's law. For example, Arnold Ehret talks about returning to the "laws of Nature". Compare this to The Essene Gospel of Peace which says "Keep, therefore, her laws". If you look at the context, "her" is referring to the Earthly Mother, which is Mother Nature.

✟ Arnold Ehret talks about making "reparation" or "compensation" for years of wrong eating. The Essene Gospel of Peace talks about paying your "debts" for years of wrong eating.

✟ They both say one should eat the same diet spoken of in the Garden of Eden story.

✟ Arnold Ehret suggests that Jesus Christ's "so-called miracles of healing" were actually done by fasting and raw vegan foods. This is precisely what The Essene Gospel of Peace is saying.

What do you think? It looks pretty damning to me. Arnold Ehret's book says Mucusless Diet Healing System was completed in 1922, the same year of his death. This is before Edmond Szekely claims he discovered, translated, and first published The Essene Gospel of Peace. It looks like Edmond Szekely fraudulently tried to make Arnold Ehret's novel ideas about "Christ's life and teachings" become a reality.

A Healthy Gut Microbiota Makes Your Lungs Immune To Viruses

Are you worried about the coronavirus? Then you should make sure that you have a healthy gut microbiota. An international team of scientists has recently discovered that the healthy type of bacteria in the gut keep the lungs immune from viruses.[1] It does this at a distance. They call it 'spooky action at a distance'. No, I'm just joking; they don't. But the gut bacteria do somehow send a signal, which in turn increases interferon signaling in lung stromal cells. The exact nature of the signal from the gut to the lung is currently unknown, but there are several hypotheses. In any event, this interferon signaling is fine-tuned to elicit antiviral protection early on while avoiding tissue damage due to inflammation.

“This and previous studies demonstrate that microbiota-driven signals can act at multiple levels, inducing an antiviral state in non-immune cells to control infection early on, and enhancing the functionality of immune cells later in infection,” Dr. Wack said.

Now as I figure it, you will never have a healthy microbiota if you have alot of mucoid cap in your gastrointestinal tract. As I proved to you in my previous post, mucoid cap is essentially eschar or slough mixed in with the adherent mucus layer. When the adherent mucus layer becomes contaminated with eschar or slough, good bacteria cannot live inside of it; only bad bacteria.[2]

So the best personal protection against the coronavirus pandemic is not to inject yourself with disinfectant as president Trump wants you to do. That's spectacularly stupid. The best personal protection is to eat a mucusless diet, remove all the mucoid cap out of your gastrointestinal system, and take probiotics and prebiotics. This should be done well before you become infected, by the way.

You can read it for free at google books. On page 119 it says that eschar or slough "serves as a proinflammatory stimulus and a culture medium for bacterial growth".


A Close Look At Richard Anderson's Cleanse Program

In case you did not know, you can buy Richard Anderson's cleanse program at www.ariseandshine.com. It has become somewhat of a defacto standard. And it does work. I've seen it remove substantial chunks of mucoid plaque.

The work horse of his cleanse program are his two herbal formulas "chomper" and "herbal nutrition", which you are supposed to take together. He refuses to divulge detailed information about how to make it or how his formulas work. However, we know from the labels that Chomper contains:
  • cascara sagrada (bark)
  • plantain (leaf)
  • barberry (root bark)
  • sheep sorrel (leaf)
  • fennel (seed)
  • ginger (root)
  • turkey rhubarb (root)
  • red raspberry (leaf)
  • baikal skullcap (root)
  • myrrh gum (resin)
  • lobelia (leaf)
  • cayenne pepper (fruit)
and that Herbal Nutrition contains:
  • milk thistle (seed)
  • turmeric (root)
  • burdock (root)
  • red clover (aerial parts)
  • dandelion (root)
  • chickweed (leaf)
  • cleavers (herb)
  • yarrow (aerial parts)
  • uva ursi (leaf)
  • alfalfa (leaf)
  • marshmallow (root)
  • irish moss (whole)
  • kelp (leaf)
And there is literature explaining what some of these herbs are purported to do. According to Robert Gray, plantain leaf has significant gastrointestinal mucolytic activity when used by itself and will also augment or induce the gastrointestinal mucolytic activity of certain other herbs such as barberry bark, red clover flowers, chickweed, and irish moss.[1] According to John Christopher, lobelia will form synergistic combinations with many different herbs (thus increasing their effectiveness).[1] And Richard Anderson mentioned that cayenne pepper increases the effectiveness of other herbs that are used with them. So I'm guessing that these are the most important active ingredients of his herbal formulas. The rest of the herbs appear to provide a supportive role to deal with such issues as gas, bloating, peristalsis, diarrhea, constipation, swelling, parasites, the liver etc.

You can read the details on how to take his program here. It basically involves taking a psyllium and bentonite drink on an empty stomach in the morning then one and a half hours later taking the herbs (both Chomper and Herbal Nutrition together) on an empty stomach then one and a half hours later taking the psyllium and bentonite drink on an empty stomach then one and a half hours later taking the herbs again on an empty stomach, etc. You can eat a mucusless diet for lunch and supper if you need to; just make sure it is one and a half hours before and after anything else.

There is a major problem with his herbal formulas that you should be mindful of. If you use it too often it will totally lose its effectiveness. I observed this myself. Robert Gray says that most herbs lose all effectiveness when taken over a period of eight to nine months. It will then take five to seven years of abstinence before maximum sensitivity is regained. He thinks this is because the body develops enzymes or antibodies that deactivate the active principles present in the herb. So make sure to not take the herbal formulas more than one third of the time; specifically, do not exceed two months of herbal ingestion followed by four months of abstinence. [2]

Why Mucoid Plaque is Harmful

As I proved to you in my previous post, mucoid plaque is essentially eschar or slough mixed in with mucus. The rationale as to why one should remove this stuff from one's gastrointestinal tract has already been written. It's called debridement. A textbook [1] on wound healing explains: "The primary purpose of debridement is to reduce or remove dead and necrotic tissue that serves as a proinflammatory stimulus and a culture medium for bacterial growth".

In case you haven't heard yet, chronic inflammation [2] [3] and intestinal bacteria are the two leading suspects as to what ultimately causes a whole list of seemingly unrelated diseases. The Harvard Health Letter writes: "The four horsemen of the medical apocalypse — coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's — may be riding the same steed: inflammation". Do a search using the name of your favorite disease and the word "microbiome" or "microbiota". You will see that medical science seriously thinks that unhealthy bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract may be the ultimate cause of it. By the way, skeptics are still telling you that autointoxication is pseudoscience. This is not true. Medical science no longer thinks it's pseudoscience.[4] All of this research on the microbiome or microbiota is a revival of the autointoxication theory.

Natural healers have had success curing these types of diseases. Victor Earl Irons, the father of mucoid plaque removal, cured his own ankylosing spondylitis. He apparently did this by removing mucoid plaque from his gastrointestinal tract. [5] Benard Jensen, a student of his, published photographic evidence of his success at curing psoriasis by removing mucoid plaque from the gastrointestinal tract.[6]

Benard Jensen writes:
In addition, the accumulations on the bowel wall become a breeding ground for unhealthy bacterial life forms. They begin to multiply on this putrid, decaying material and the stage is set for serious consequences.
Now, Benard Jensen thought the accumulations was primarily feces mixed in with sticky mucus. But compare what he said to what the textbook Comprehensive Wound Management says about necrotic tissue. [7] On page 150 it says:
Putrid is reserved for a very strong, foul odor associated with decaying meat.
It is not partially digested meat eaten years ago that accumulates on the gastrointestinal wall. It is our own meat. It is our own necrotic epithelial cells mixed in with sticky mucus that accumulates on the mucosa. In a curious moment of insight, Benard Jensen did in fact say that it was loaded with "tissue" [8]

After 70 plus years of denial, medical science has finally acknowledged that autointoxication is a real health threat. [4] But I fear that they will once again give up on this theory once they find out that simply ingesting probiotics will not do anything. I think it is obvious that you have to remove the mucoid cap layer in order to have a healthy microbiota. The only way to truly clean an infected wound is to remove the necrotic tissue.

My Take On The Mucusless Diet

In my previous blog post I showed you the science of how certain foods cause superficial damage to the mucosa, which then causes a mucoid cap to form over it. This, I submit to you, is the scientific justification for the so-called mucusless diet. The mucusless diet is a misnomer; it does not prevent mucus formation. It prevents mucoid cap formation. As I pointed out to you in my previous post, some modern pathologists wrongly designate mucoid cap as "mucus". The mucusless diet was first proposed by Arnold Ehret.[1] It was later championed by John Christopher,[2] Robert Gray,[3] Richard Anderson,[4] Dr. Sebi (Alfredo Bowman),[5] and Norman Wardhaugh Walker,[6] who each had their own take on it. I have my own take on it, which I think is better though. My take on the mucusless diet is composed of the following 12 pillars:

1. It is best to eat no dairy products of any kind. This includes milk, cheese, cottage cheese, cream, butter, skim milk, yogurt, kefir, ghee, and whey. However, if you think this is too restrictive, choose goats' milk dairy products rather than cows' milk dairy products. Goats' milk is substantially less damaging than cows' milk. Cow's milk dairy products are absolutely not allowed.

2. It is best to eat no meat products of any kind. This includes red meat, eggs, fowl, and fish.

3. Vegetables and fruits are perfectly allowed. They are the base of the diet. This category includes low-acidic fruits, leaves, flowerbuds, flowers, stems, trunks, stalks, immature legumes,[7] immature grains,[7] and tubers. This category also includes seaweed, mushrooms, and single-celled organisms such as algae and yeast. The reason fruits should be low-acidic is because too much is not good for your tooth enamel. A little bit of lemon juice for flavoring is perfectly fine though. Cooking is very individualized. For example, I'm guessing that figs, avocadoes, bananas, lettuce, dulse, dates, sweet fruit, etc should be eaten raw while sweet potatoes, mushrooms, immature legumes, immature grains (sweet corn) etc should be eaten cooked. I also think that some vegetables and fruits can be eaten either raw or cooked depending on what mood you are in.

4. Nuts and seeds are perfectly allowed. I think they should be the base of the diet, as well, replacing the meat and milk products that you normally eat. They must always be eaten raw. Never cook nuts or seeds. You don't need to soak and sprout them to eat them. However, some nuts and seeds will benefit a little by soaking and/or sprouting them. The site sproutpeople.org is a superb resource to learn about sprouting nuts and seeds. Note that peanuts are not actually nuts. They are large legumes. So peanuts are not allowed. Do not masticate nuts or seeds with your teeth; instead, process them into a flour, butter, pâté, milk, or dressing before eating. I believe that crushing nuts or seeds with your teeth is not good for your tooth enamel.

5. Unsprouted mature grain and unsprouted mature legumes are not allowed. This is especially so for soy.

6. However, sprouted small legumes and sprouted grains are allowed. They must always be cooked. Never eat raw legume sprouts or raw grain sprouts. The site sproutpeople.org is a superb resource to learn about sprouting legumes and grains. Quinoa and french lentils sprout very well. You can eat sprout bread as well. Note that the huge majority of the bread that is marketed as sprout bread is not allowed. That's because they simply add some sprouts to normal bread. True sprout bread has only one ingredient: sprouted grain. That's it. I found only one company that sells true sprout bread. It's Manna Organics. You can find their products at Whole Foods as well.

7. It is best to limit sweeteners to raw honey (except eucalyptus honey), dates, sweet fruit, and stevia. They must always be raw. If you think this is too restrictive, then at least make sure your sweetener of choice is as unprocessed as possible. Processed sugars like white sugar cane are absolutely not allowed.

8. The only oils allowed are cold-pressed and unrefined oils. Examples are extra virgin olive oil and flax oil. It must always be raw. Make sure it says cold-pressed or unrefined on the bottle. Never cook or fry oil.

9. Choose certified organic produce whenever you can.

10. Supplement your diet appropriately. Make sure you are getting enough B12, vitamin D, iodine, etc.

11. And of course, ultra-processed foods and toxic chemicals are absolutely not allowed. Some examples are white refined flour, semolina pasta, white refined sugar cane, sulphured fruit, refined salt, alcohol, processed meats, aged cheeses, pesticides, deep fried whatever, high-fructose corn syrup, refined oils, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, carrageenan, xanthan gum, maltodextrin, carboxymethyl cellulose, etc.

12. The mucusless diet should be customized for your needs.
