Magic Mushrooms and Wild Garlic

Carved into the old, giant teak doors that welcome you to the Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Shanghai, China are some magical words that sum up all that is so right about this form of medicine and also, what is so wrong with Western medicine and drugs.

These words are pure genius in their simplicity:

“Don’t wait to get thirsty to dig a well.”

What the Chinese never do, in particular, is to ever let their immune system lose its protective power. In over seven years of living and traveling throughout China, not once did I ever meet someone who had a cold or the flu, or even a tiny sniffle or sneeze!

Today’s article shares with you how I discovered this power, and now how you can too.

To the Top of Drum Mountain

At the end of a three day journey, on foot, up the fabled Drum Mountain to the Monastery of the Golden Buddha, I learned a gigantic truth about the power of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Buddhist Temple on  Trail up MountainDragging my dear friend and confidant Mark Soderquist, along to witness and record it all, it seemed like we crawled up Drum Mountain on our hands and knees, through the fog that envelopes Drum Mountain continuously.

The Head Professor at the fabled Institute in Shanghai had said “the monks up there live forever, no one ever dies, they CAN’T die.”

This could very well be the famed Holy Grail of all Chinese Medicine and the answer to my prayers in fighting cancer (and something to bring home and share with all of America.)

This magical Kingdom of Longevity is like something from a dream, all set in a Lord of the Rings setting, containing what seemed like the greatest collection of gold Buddhas in all of China. Some of the golden Buddhas were so immense they were laying down on their side. Work, prayers and meditation went on all around them. Simply amazing, but let’s move on.

Through our faithful translator and mediator, Shen Yuun who worked at the Instititute and spoke impeccable Hollywood DVD-English, we were introduced to the Head Abbot of the Monastery and his Number One Assistant, the Monk of all Healing.

“We watch nature in action; Then we eat it.”

The Story Behind "God's Vitamin"

“The split second you were born, God prepared for you a special meal, His “Soup of Life.” This soup held all things needed from the universe to create, sustain and protect life.”

– Wayne Garland

In the late ’90’s I used to visit an old copper mining town called Bisbee in southern Arizona, near the Mexico border. Something called out to me and drew me to the town and a lot of what I learned there goes into all our formulas. It is a special place, a time-warp type of town, full of wonderful artists and thinkers and dreamers, and I recommend making a point to visit the little town.

One day I was running late, and driving hurriedly to Tucson to catch a flight, when I looked up and saw a giant billboard that hit me square between the eyes and into my entire psyche.

It said, We need to talk. And was “signed” by God.

The story goes that an anonymous donor was behind the billboards. The donor wanted to people to smile and think about God in a new way. (Visit the website,, to learn more about it.)

The billboard and it’s message have stuck to me like glue all these years now and whenever I need some kind of “breakthrough” this poster’s message always comes through.

Disease Should Not Exist
Some of you have probably read or heard about the extraordinary books by Neale Donald Walsh called Conversations with God. The books will change your life and your relationship with God, that’s for sure. I’ve used them often.

In one conversation that I had, I asked God why was it that with so much brilliance in the worlds of medicine, pharmaceuticals and nutrition, that disease still proliferated – and some diseases long thought to be cured were now returning in epidemic proportions. Diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, dementia, Alzheimer’s.

And while these were once the diseases of the elderly, they were now affecting the very young, even babies.

The situation is dire and getting worse by the day. Hospitals are overflowing. Doctors can’t cope and don’t know what to do anyway. Drugs are ineffective and repeated use cause dangerous, long-term side effects. The cost of medicine is bankrupting the country and there’s no end in sight.

None of this should be happening! There is an answer and it costs next to nothing per day.

"God calls me friend"

Nearly thirty years ago now (but a heartbeat away in real time), I asked God in a prayer that if he would give me a second chance at life and help me beat cancer, I would do anything for Him whenever he ever asked.

I got “the call” when I met one of his tireless, inexhaustible angels in Ellason Castiglione. She came into my life through her non-denominational ministry called “Clean Heart Ministries” where she helps anyone who crosses her path.

As a minister and motivational speaker, Ellason spends a lot of time on her feet, but as far back as she can remember, she has suffered from chronic pain and a lack of energy. When we first met, she was having injections into her knees to relieve the pain due to lost cartilage.

Now, not quite a year later, Ellason is pain-free and with more energy than she can ever remember having. Click play on the video below and allow Ellason tell you how it happened.

My name is Ellason Castiglione

For many years, I suffered with joint pain, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia. In my younger years, I was never as energetic as the other kids on my block. I have fought fatigue since I can remember. In addition, I have no cartilage in my knees and had to have injections to enable me to walk without severe pain. Three years ago, I had my foot operated on and the bones never healed. I could hardly walk at times and I was frantic because I am a motivational speaker and must stand for hours to deliver my message.
