7. Questions & Answers
I have a breaking out on my scalp and behind my ears. At times it is so itchy that I have to wear gloves to restrain myself from scratching my scalp and making the condition worse. My doctor has prescribed one medication after another but nothing seems to do any good. He said he’s going to refer me to a specialist if it doesn’t respond to treatment soon. What would you advise me to do?
By this time you should know that externally applied medications will not help your condition. Your system is so saturated with toxins that it has taken this extraordinary route to relieve itself of its burden. You need to fast. Your body will then take over and cleanse itself. You should be rid of your trouble in a very short time, perhaps even in a week.
I’m only 19 and already I’m getting bald. What can I do?
The medical community correlates balding with aging. At only 19 years of age you have obviously just begun your life. Another theory associates balding with inheritance, that one’s genes foretell that a person will become bald. Personally, we don’t buy this. One thing that makes us hold that balding is related to the overall wellness of a person is that balding has increased in about the same way as man’s dietary habits have deteriorated. It will probably take several generations to restore to human males their birthright—a heavy head of beautiful hair—but I am confident it can be done by improving the health of each new generation. As for you, fast, get the accumulated metabolic wastes out of your system, turn over a new leaf, as they say, and live hygienically. If the hair cells are dead, you probably can’t revive them, but surely you can prevent further loss.
My hair is thick enough but it is dull and lifeless-looking. It just hangs. Do you have any suggestions?
Again we come back to the unity of the body. How is your energy flow? I’m willing to hazard a guess that you probably drink “Cokes” or coffee or tea several times a day to keep going. I see you nodding your head. You, too, need to fast and then to begin eating a human diet, not swallowing messes of chemicals. There is a beautiful black mare in the pasture below us. Her coat glistens in the sun and she runs with great speed around the pasture, her nostrils flaring and every muscle showing its strength. This is a race horse and I can bet my bottom dollar that Bob, the owner, doesn’t feed that horse on lollipops and swill. It gets the finest kind of horse food. You need to feed yourself people food, to get out of doors and walk, to make friends and begin to learn about life and what it takes to live in health. If you’ll do this, your body will take care of your hair and it will truly become your crowning glory.
I’m 67 years of age. As you can see, my hair is thin and it’s almost white. I guess, at my age, about all I can do is to buy a wig and wear it, do you agree?
No way! Dr. Vetrano once noted that many women with wigs can see improvement in their hair’s condition, since they are no longer always fussing with it, putting on creams and lotions, teasing, curling and perming it, etc. I would advise you to fast perhaps initially for 24 hours every week, to learn how to combine your food properly, to adopt the hygienic way of eating, to rinse your hair frequently and just let it alone. We ourselves have observed how our hair has darkened. Twenty years ago my hair was a dirty yellow white. As you can see it is now a rather darkish gray and no one can say that I don’t have a thick head of hair, can they?
My hair smells sour. In fact, sometimes it smells so bad that my husband complains about it. What would cause this?
One of the first things we do when clients come to us with scalp or hair problems is to smell the hair. A foul, sour odor is indicative of a foul, sour body. Your fluids are filled with acid wastes. You need to fast for an extended time; if possible, until the return of hunger. I would advise you to consider going to a spa as soon as possible to undertake a fast. That should end your sour hair problem for good if, thereafter, you adopt a more Hygienic way of living and eating.
