Are you one of the growing number of “HIV positives” who reject the “antiretroviral” drugs, T-cells and “viral load” counting, and the general fear around “AIDS” – but still perceive that you have a weak immune system? It may not be “all in your head.” Digestive problems, constipation, hormone imbalances, headaches, “brain fog,” allergies, hypoglycemia, fatigue, skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema — links to cancers, Parkinson’s, diabetes and obesity – and even, possibly, heart disease –may be signs of inflammation caused by a dangerous fungal growth. Dr. Jeffrey McCombs reveals Candida albicans as the common factor in more than 100 diseases. Mainstream sources describe Candida as caused by HIV, but they could be raising the question of what AIDS is in the first place. It looks a lot like Candida to us! Southern California chiropractor Dr. McCombs is the author of Life Force: A Dynamic Plan for Health, Vitality and Weight Loss and, just released this summer of 2014, The Everything Candida Diet Book. He has maintained The Candida Library, an online resource for practitioners and patients, since 2011. In his conversation with “How Positive Are You” co-hosts David Crowe and Elizabeth Ely, several surprising facts emerged:
- Government-sponsored online medical database PubMed reveals almost no studies on the effects of Candida albicans on the human body before 1945 (see “Results by Year” graph on this PubMed search page) – not so coincidentally, about the time that antibiotics were first introduced.
- These days, up to five research studies on Candida are initiated every day (again, as shown on the “Results by Year” downloadable CSV on this PubMed search page), yet this condition is not taught in medical schools, and your doctor may not even know how to look for it.
- Most tests for Candida fail to distinguish between the yeast and fungal forms of this organism, and taking probiotics without addressing this difference can make the fungal form even more damaging.
- The dangers of antibiotics go far beyond killing beneficial bacteria in the gut and include damaging the mitochondria inside cells, growing bacterial resistance, establishing a Th1/Th2 imbalance within the immune system and causing permanent brain damage. (HPAY plans to talk more about the Th1/Th2 subsets of T-cells in the future, so stay tuned. . . .)
- Astronauts get Candida-related symptoms while working in space.
As we discussed in a previous episode of HPAY, antibiotics and their devastating cousins the “HIV antiretrovirals” take us into bacterial resistance and dependence on ever more powerful drugs. Our warlike, carpet-bombing medical system tries to eradicate all threats – with plenty of collateral damage. As an alternative, the key to restoring balance, Dr. McCombs says, is converting inflammatory, “tumbleweed”-shaped fungal forms back to beneficial yeast forms. Dr. McCombs takes a limited number of patients and can be reached by phone or Web through information on his “Contact Us” page.
Do you have “HIV/AIDS” or any defined “disease”? Or are you a system out of balance? What would it look like to support your body and immune system rather than shooting at imaginary measurements such as T-cells and “viral load”? What is a disease, anyway, and do we really need to define, isolate and attack such things? If we can listen to our bodies in such exquisite detail that we support them back to their natural states of life and health, why don’t more of us know about this highly rational therapy? Join New York City chiropractor Dr. David Simpson as he leads our co-hosts, David Crowe and Elizabeth Ely, on a fascinating inquiry into the nature of the human body and how we might support it. The technology has arrived, and it affirms ancient ideas of healing.
Western medicine emphasizes what is wrong with us, what pathogens we need to fight against — not what we could support with nourishment and life-giving therapies. In short, HIV/AIDS is a death paradigm, not a life one. Why else would its propaganda have to constantly assure us how life-giving it is, if that’s not obvious?
Your patterns go deeper than just your backache, your digestive issues, or your “HIV” status! The good news is, you can now treat yourself holistically, “as a whole” – on the level of these patterns. Dr. Simpson describes the process of Nutrition Response Testing (NRT), a branch of applied kinesiology as developed by Dr. Freddie Ulan, to find weak organs in the body and literally ask the body what it needs in order to optimize its functions. Applied kinesiology is a decades-old therapy that detects muscular reactions to stresses on the nervous system. (Dr. Ulan himself demonstrates the use of NRT in this video.)
Get ready for a paradigm shift! Get ready to live for something, rather than fighting against a disease.
Just in time for the 30th anniversary of that famous, high-profile press conference announcing “HIV” as the “probable cause of AIDS,” the CDC has recently more quietly redefined what constitutes a diagnosis of “HIV infection,” both as an individual diagnosis and the “surveillance case definition” applied to populations. As you might have guessed, it is whatever-the-heck they say it is. “HIV testing” expert Dr. Rodney Richards answers our questions about this historic redefinition, the demise of the Western blot “confirmatory” test and the rise of the misleadingly named “viral load” testing as a partial diagnostic. Listen in on the conversation, and perhaps you can protect yourself from this egregious abuse of power to label more and more people as infectious Typhoid Marys. Could this also be a defensive move against recent challenges to “HIV-positive” diagnoses in criminal and civil court cases?
In this joint Episode 9 of “The Infectious Myth” and Episode 82 of “How Positive Are You,” taped live on Gary Null’s Progressive Radio Network, David and Beth take on the logical inconsistencies of HIV testing and diagnosis with some help from Dr. Richards. As an organic chemist and co-founder of biotech company Amgen, Dr. Richards worked on the original HIV testing technology in the early 1980s. His work laid the foundation for the ELISA test eventually marketed by Abbott Laboratories. “How Positive Are You” Episode 6, posted in October 2008, features Dr. Richards’ comments on how the so-called “HIV tests” really work; we recommend you give it a listen.
More recently, Dr. Richards has testified as an expert witness on behalf of several defendants charged with crimes of “HIV transmission.” His court appearances have came at the invitation of The Office of Medical and Scientific Justice (OMSJ), which has successfully aided in the defense of more than 50 such cases. The definition of an “HIV” diagnosis is changing just as OMSJ is exposing it as mere hearsay in U.S. military and civilian courtrooms — intentional, or merely coincidental?

In Episode 7 of “The Infectious Myth,” David Crowe talks with Suzanne Humphries, M.D., and Roman Bystrianyk, authors of the 2012 book “Dissolving Illusions,” a critical history of vaccination.
Suzanne is a mainstream kidney specialist who started to notice that many people coming into emergency rooms with kidney failure were recently vaccinated, which prompted her to start her own research. Roman overcame his own health problems due to bad diet and lifestyle in a natural way, and applied this knowledge to learning more about the vaccination of his own children. Together they put their information together into a very well-referenced book.
Together they discuss the history of vaccination, focusing particularly on smallpox, polio and the combined vaccine for diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DTP or DPT). Their information identifies non-infectious causes for some of the symptoms, such as bad living conditions and pesticides, how treatments by doctors sometimes worsened these diseases, and most particularly, how most epidemics had declined, sometimes by as much as 99%, before the vaccines for them came into use.

Mark Skanda describes himself as a professional masseur, change agent, pleasure activist, life coach, selective and sacred sex educator, and even sometimes a sex worker, currently working and playing in New York City. He talks here with “How Positive Are You” co-hosts David Crowe and Elizabeth Ely about what it means to explore the “Tantric Tiger” in all of us. We invite you to listen in on this fascinating, challenging and playful discussion that shifts the conversation from “safe sex” to the health benefits of feeling safe in the arms of a lover. . . . Let’s get it on.
Skanda is that guy featured as author Pamela Madsen‘s guide through the Sacred Intimacy movement in her book Shameless: How I Ditched the Diet, Got Naked, Found True Pleasure . . . and Still Got Home in Time to Cook Dinner. He describes the book as “Eat Pray Love meets Sex and the City meets Funny Girl.”
Skanda became certified as a Certified Sexological Bodyworker in 2008 after studying with Dr. Joseph Kramer at the Institute for Advanced Studies of Human Sexuality in San Francisco. He also trained in various workshops and certification programs, including Landmark Education as the successor to Werner Erhard’s groundbreaking “est” movement, rebirthing, tantric bodywork and shiatsu massage, the Coaches Training Institute and Coachville, The Mankind Project, and yoga.
Skanda is currently hosting twice monthly lecture/discussions on “Tantric Basics” for men who love men, and on alternate weeks he co-hosts erotic exploration and play parties, donating part of the proceeds to organizations that encourage AIDS rethinking – including, soon, “How Positive Are You.” He can be contacted through his “Tantric Tiger” Web site.
Along the way in this conversation, we bring up Ian Young’s description of the St. Sebastian myth as it applies to gay sexuality and identity from The Stonewall Experiment. Naomi Wolf’s The Beauty Myth gets a brief mention for its insight into body image among women.
A previous episode with Liam Scheff discusses, among other things, women’s socializing effect on men, and we thank Liam for his insight into the recent criminal verdict against Atlanta man Craig Lamar Davis for allegedly using his “HIV” as a sexual “deadly weapon.” This trial was the subject of Episode 78 with the private investigator for the defense, Clark Baker. A separate story about another man allegedly having infected 30 people, is published here. (Special thanks to the listener who sent this in; please give us your feedback at mailto:email@example.com.) Need we even mention how alarming it is that “HIV positives” are being charged with crimes merely for having sex?
David Crowe interviews Eric Merola, director of three documentaries on people going outside the mainstream to treat their cancers.
The first two documentaries are Burzynski, the Movie (Part I) (2010) and Burzynski: Cancer is Serious Business, Part II (2013), both on Dr. Stanislaw Buzynski of Houston, who has battled for decades with the U.S. FDA to get his non-toxic antineoplastons accepted as a legal cancer therapy. Eric’s most recent film, Second Opinion: Laetrile at Sloan-Kettering (2014), is about the discovery by Ralph Moss, then a public relations officer at Sloan-Kettering Memorial Cancer Center in New York, that Laetrile was effective in cancer treatment, while he was supposed to be putting out press releases containing lies.
David and Eric expose how the highly profitable nature of mainstream cancer therapy distorts the purpose of cancer treatment from helping victims of cancer to maintaining the profitable status quo. Eric implies that the cancer establishment will have to crumble before what is allowed for cancer treatment will change in any substantial way in the U.S. That would occur only with a grassroots revolt against the continuing War on Cancer, the decades-long titanic struggle that pits toxic treatments against tumors, using the cancer patient’s body as the battlefield. Even if the patient doesn’t die in the process of all-out war, they may wonder if it was worth it in the end.
Dr. Burzynski’s antineoplastons are natural proteins that he found were present in lower quantities in many cancer patients. He does not claim a perfect remission rate, but his successes in previously intractable cases, such as many brain tumors, are vastly greater than the mainstream’s. Similarly, Laetrile is no “magic bullet,” but it has been scientifically shown to have some benefits. As Eric points out, that cannot be said for mainstream cancer treatments, which are lightly studied for one type of cancer before approval and then widely used “off-label” afterwards.
David describes the current cancer treatment system as a tumor with only one aim – to maintain its own viability. Like all tumors, it is vulnerable to a change in the environment. And this is where all individuals who educate themselves become antineoplastons — anti-cancer-agents!

In Episode 5 of “The Infectious Myth” David’s guest is another David, Dr. David Rasnick, who has worked for almost 20 years with Peter Duesberg on the theory that aneuploidy, not gene mutations, causes cancer.
Aneuploidy refers to a cell that has the wrong number and type of chromosomes. Human cells are normally diploid, meaning that they have exactly two copies of every chromosome (except for the X and Y chromosomes that form an asymmetrical pair). According to Rasnick, every cancer tumor cell is aneuploid, often to a massive degree. On average, cancer cells have 70% more chromosomes than the cell should have.
By contrast, the mutation theory has struggled to explain cancer, having to drag in many mutations, that must occur in the same cell, in order for cancer to occur. The mutation theory does not explain why people generally get cancer later in life, if they are born with their mutations. If mutations occur later, how do they all occur in the same cell?
Rasnick discusses the history of the aneuploidy theory, going back to the 1800s. He talks about what can cause aneuploidy, and how evidence of aneuploidy is used outside the United States to define a substance as carcinogenic. He addresses claims of the discovery of diploid tumors and why he claims that these are due to either bad techniques (not looking at the cells in place in the tumor, for example) or to not realizing that even cells that are close to diploid can be aneuploid.

David Crowe interviews Liam Scheff about what this journalist and author calls “Official Stories.”
Liam’s 2012 book, Official Stories: Counter-Arguments for a Culture in Need, states: “Official stories exist to protect officials.” Liam is a critic of many myths of modern society, seeing science as a force that promotes myths with the fervor of a religion. Liam also talks about the Incarnation Children’s Center orphanage scandal in New York City, a story that Liam broke 10 years ago, in which the city used poor foster children as “guinea pigs” in highly profitable pharmaceutical AIDS drug trials.
The conversation ranges from the incomprehensibly enormous time and space of the universe to questions of the incomprehensible smallness of viruses.

Every conversation about “AIDS” eventually gets around to the dangers of getting it on. Is sex really unsafe at any speed? Unsafe for whom? What does love have to do with it? Amazingly, the answers to these questions have been around for more than 60 years, in the work of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich. Dr. James DeMeo is furthering this important research at his Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory (OBRL) — and no, it’s not pornographic and you can’t watch. You can, however, listen in as Dr. DeMeo and “How Positive Are You” co-host Elizabeth Ely talk about electrical discharges, love, the healing powers of a sexual energy called “orgone,” orgone accumulator boxes, and the energy of life itself.
According to the “sex-economic” hypothesis and other theories advanced by Dr. Reich in The Mass Psychology of Fascism, traumatic and sex-repressive social institutions create fearful people and fascist societies. Dr. DeMeo validated this theory by undertaking the most ambitious global, cross-cultural research study of human behavior, family systems, and sexual life to-date. This study led to his discovery of an ancient epoch of drought, desertification, famine and mass migration in the Old World after about 4000 B.C. — which he named Saharasia. His book, also called Saharasia, locates the origins of human violence in traumatic and sex-repressive social institutions in that place and time.
While working toward his 1986 doctorate at the University of Kansas, Dr. DeMeo had already rigorously tested the controversial discoveries of Dr. Reich and had found them to be sound. He even used orgone technology in the arid American Southwest, Egypt, Israel, and sub-Saharan Africa, literally causing it to rain in the desert.
Other published books by Dr. DeMeo include The Orgone Accumulator Handbook and In Defense of Wilhelm Reich (reviewed here and here). He has also edited several academic books, has served on the geography faculty of several universities, and is a member of many prestigious scientific associations.
In the course of our discussion, we also mention HPAY Episode 74, featuring Dawn Lester and David Parker talking about Why Germs Don’t Make You Ill and Drugs Can’t Cure You. The Culture of Narcissism by Christopher Lasch explains what we mean by “narcissism.” For information about the Gerson therapy for cancer, see the documentary film Dying to Have Known. (For another view on sex, we hope you stayed tuned for our talk about the “Tantric Tiger” philosophy in our upcoming Episode 81 with Mark Skanda; if you haven’t heard it yet, you can still tune in now.)
Resources on Wilhelm Reich, sexual freedom, and orgone energy include several books and articles accessible to lay readers. An excellent place to start is The Function of the Orgasm, as much a memoir/history as an explanation of the research from the Freudian to the discovery of orgone energy. Selected Writings: An Introduction to Orgonomy details the experiments themselves. “The Sexual Rights of Youth” appears as an essay in Children of the Future: On the Prevention of Sexual Pathology. The Orgone Accumulator Handbook: Construction Plans, Experimental Use, and Protection Against Toxic Energy explains how to collect the energy that the U.S. government concluded didn’t actually exist (and had, therefore, to destroy the machines that made it). More complex but still readable is The Cancer Biopathy, concerning Dr. Reich’s findings on cancer.
Listeners can check the “Resources” page at the “OrgoneLab” Web site for further writings, scholarly journals, and independent practitioners of orgone therapy. The American College of Orgonomy and the Institute for Orgonomic Science are the two main professional organizations in the field.
