"(Chaparral) makes tumors leap out of the body. It's incredible. Tumors leap out of the body. Indians used it for that. They knew. And they didn't have their positive-thinking tapes; they knew that when you took chaparral it made tumors go away." ~ [1996] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos transcripts

"They are killing them left and right. Otherwise, why would parents bring their kids to me with childhood leukemia? Sometimes it's because the prognosis is so horrible. Other times, all they have to do is walk into the Ronald McDonald wing of Children's Hospital to these cancer centers, and see the nightmares that are going on in there. That makes them want to do something different."  ~ [1996] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos transcripts

“I like the Champion juicer because it's versatile. It's a couple hundred bucks and you can make nut butters, frozen fruit deserts, and juices in it. Now supposedly the best one made is the Norwalk, but it's $2000. Who needs that? The Champion works great. Now the Juiceman, which is about $300, some people say it's a little easier to clean. I got my Champion 20 years ago, I've still got the same one — and no one is as hard on a juicer as I am.”  [1996] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos transcripts

"The real key is, if you want to kill your baby, take him to the hospital, because they'll suppress the fever with one thing or another. The bacteria or virus will overgrow, and then, you'll have a dead baby on your hands and they'll claim it was the disease."  ~  [1996] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos transcripts

My clinical experience is that in America, when people die from cancer, they are NOT actually dying from cancer, but instead, they are dying from the medical TREATMENT itself. They are dying from the chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. AGAIN: They are NOT dying from the cancer—they are being killed by the medical doctors and their medical treatment!  [1996] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos transcripts

I had one patient with medically documented, very aggressive last-stage colon cancer. She was in her late 70’s and she did absolutely nothing at all. Actually, she told me that she had a lot of peppermint growing in her backyard, and she believed this would help her, so every day she picked some of it and made fresh peppermint tea and drank many cups a day. Within three months her cancer was completely healed. Gone. So she almost fits in this category of “Do nothing and live longer”.   Pancreatic Cancer, Chemo & Carrot Juice

Well over 50% of American bankruptcies are caused by hospital and medical bills! Yes, the hospital will take your home away from you if necessary to get their money, and even if you die, you still need to pay, and they will take EVERYTHING from your spouse and children.  I had numerous patients whose spouse underwent major medical treatment for cancer, and many experimental treatments, like bone marrow transplants, that were not covered by their insurance. Regular treatment or experimental, these patients racked up huge medical bills, beyond what their insurance would cover, and once their nest egg and life savings was gone, the bills kept piling up. Eventually the patient could not take the torture anymore and died. But when the patient died, the hospital and medical bills remained. You would think that if you die, that you would get a refund, or at least a pardon from the remainder of the bill, but this is not how the medical system works. I had many patients, who not only lost their husband, but also ended up having the house taken away from them by the bill collectors and courts from their unpaid medical bills.

"80% of my patients were well just after doing my thorough bowel cleansing program."--Richard Shulze, ND., MH

"In 80% of the women who come in with painful periods, after we clean their bowels, their periods are fine."--Dr Shulze (The Sam Biser Herbal Video Collection p199)

"The machinery looks good, the technology seems nice, the stainless steel is shiny, everything smells like isopropyl alchohol; I mean they are the greatest salesmen in the world.  We're going to go look back at this century and we're going to laugh eventually, but we'll cry first.  This is one of the most barbaric periods.  It's going to be called the Dark Ages of Medicine."----Dr Shulze (The Sam Biser Herbal Video Collection p198)

"Pap smears were designed to get women back into a doctor's office.....They con women into either biopsies or surgery for their cervix before they really have a problem.....I suggest that women never get a pap smear.  It's just a way that a gynaecologist makes his boat payments."----Dr Shulze (The Sam Biser Herbal Video Collection p194)

"I think if I picked one therapy above all others, it would be hydrotherapy."---Dick Shulze, N.D., M.H.

"Cayenne should be an herb which everyone has in the kitchen, the bathroom and in the trunk of your car...Because there is no other herb that moves the blood faster to the brain than cayenne.  ...It relieves the pain of angina pectoris by helping to get more blood to the heart muscle itself. And if a person has a heart attack, Cayenne is the surest first-aid remedy...I have had almost a hundred patients actually save their lives by using a tablespoon of Cayenne pepper in a glass of warm water and drinking it down fast." 

"If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other."    - Dr. Richard SCHULZE, Medical Herbalist

"They couldn't move their hands, they couldn't hold a pen, they couldn't hold their pen and write their name, and their hands were actually fixated claws.  And we cured them using everything I've talked about, plus the deep tissue repair herbs....The first thing is you've got to get them off all foods that are acid-forming.  Which means the muculous diet....Raw foods, raw food until the arthritis is better and juice fasting....You can't have any animals, any dairy, any fish, any beef, anything that contains uric acid....we used to prescribe a lot of hot and cold showers.  Hydrotherapy.....I have found arthritis is a crystallized disease for crystallized people...a lot of healers feel there's a certain mind set that goes along with arthritis----which is not being open...Most of my arthritis patients have been pretty constipated up there in their head...if you don't follow the food program and stop putting inorganic minerals and acids in your body, your joints won't unflame.  You also have to work with healing the mind...(they) aren't flexible physically and/or emotionally.  This is their challenge, physically and emotionally.--Dr Shulze (The Sam Biser Herbal Video Collection p184)

"In Utah the naturopathic physicians took Dr Christopher (one of Dr Shulze's teachers, along with Bernard Jensen) to court. They told him privately that he was curing people too fast and that he cost them business. He spent his life in and out of court and in and out of jail. He was handcuffed and taken away after one of his lectures for giving herbs to ease the suffering of a woman with terminal cancer. Usually the jury acquitted him against the judge’s instructions. Finally in 1969, he was not so lucky and was convicted and given a suspended sentence, because prescribing (suggesting herbs) without a license was a felony. He was stripped of his citizenship and forbidden to vote.....Dr Shulze wanted to cure the "incurables" but had to live as an "underground" man as he could be arrested. He ran a secret clinic for 20 years, but then made the mistake of giving a public talk. Within weeks he was in jail, but escaped on a technicality. He then quit his secret practice to teach his methods of curing the incurable diseases."--- Sam Biser

"I had a number of patients get very depressed because of what the doctor told them, or because of their medical procedures or whatever. One of the things I had to do in my clinic was to combat depression all the time. The ginkgo on its own was effective with maybe 20 percent of the patients, but the majority of them didn't notice a difference in their depression.
          Putting the cayenne in with it, I would say I got up to about 95 percent immediately. It was quite astounding what the difference was.
          Of course, it is a well known scientific fact today, and this is something that has only come out in the last couple years, that there is a small area in the center of the brain. When it atrophies; when it dries up and shrinks and has a lack of blood and oxygen to it, you becomemore depressed. Keeping the circulation going to that area inhibits depression. And increasing circulation is what cayenne is doing.
    So ginkgo is a great herb for getting more blood and oxygen up there, but cayenne is the herb that takes it up."

"Natural healing has the power to cure pancreatic cancer. But usually, before I see the patient, medical treatments--- not the disease - have destroyed the patient's body."---Shulze

"He was one of my most dramatic recoveries with AIDS, and the reason I say that is that he was the most far gone. He was in the absolute, end stage -- they have that wing in the hospital where they have given up on you. You can smoke pot and do anything you want. They had given up on him."—Dr Shulze, who cured 16 from last stage full-blown AIDS.  

"I have had hundreds and hundreds of stroke cases. My methods cured them---when they were so stiff they were almost dead."---Dick Shulze, N.D.

The way I got the kids started was making apple juice in the juicer — and just throwing one carrot through.  You start out with about 90 percent apple and 10 percent carrots and the kids will eventually start drinking that like it's perfect. When they really get used to it, then go up to 20 percent of carrot and 80 percent apple and just work that ratio till you get it about 50-50.  A lot of people might say that is a vegetable and a fruit combination, but every juice specialist seems to agree that the one food combining exception with fruits and vegetables is carrot with apple.  Juices help thin people gain weight.

“Just a side note here: if you want to really make your animals sick, send them to a kennel.”

Take two quarts of apple and a quart of prune as your juice for the day on a juice fast and you will notice a dramatic bowel cleanse.

I think that if I look at the amount of cats and dogs that have come to my clinic because they were sick I would say that for over half of them, it was after a stay in the kennel. This breaks down into a couple of things.

Herbal Renaissance: Growing, Using and Understanding Herbs in the Modern World by Stephen Foster

I think first of all, animals don't have the same sense of reason that we do. You drop them off at a kennel, they think they are going to become pet food. I think it is the most depressing thing that you can do to an animal.

“Cayenne pepper is the greatest thing for high blood pressure, but the #1 herb, of course, is garlic. Cayenne is great. It's in Dr. Christopher's blood pressure formula. It's in my blood pressure formula. You eat enough cayenne pepper, and you won't have to go to your doctor, because you won't: have a blood pressure problem.  Cayenne is not the cure for high blood pressure. There are a couple of reasons for high blood pressure. One is because your blood is too thick. The answer is thinning your blood.  You can use red clover to do that and garlic to do that, but still that's not going to help if you are filling your face with Big Macs.  You have to cut your animal and dairy products intake in half. That will immediately start thinning your blood. You have to flush. Do the liver flushes and clean out the liver. Then, use your herbs on top of it. You will see dramatic change.”

“Here is a formula for superfood. You take 4 tablespoons a day, two tablespoons in the morning, and two in the evening. The ingredients are: spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa grass, barley grass, wheat grass, purple pulse seaweed, beet root, spinach leaf, rose hips, orange and lemon peels and non-active nutritional yeast. If you are missing any of the ingredients, just do the best you can. Use whatever is available to you.  What I did this morning for an energy drink, I just chopped up a whole 5-8 cloves of garlic, a handful of ginger, and mashed it up on a plate. Dumped it in some apple juice, stirred it and let the juice soak in for 10 minutes, and then drank it down. For me, the apple juice reduces the sting of garlic. I have this once or twice a day.


Richard took one pod, one single seed pod, of a fresh lobelia plant, and in twenty minutes, he was dripping sweat, peeing, pooping and puking at the same time. He gave one pod of this to students and it made their heads spin.  Yet, at other times, he took 3 bottles of commercial lobelia tincture and one student drank all three and didn't throw up. Nothing happened. These people are selling you junk that, at best, is okay, but it is never great — and it is never the quality you should be giving to your spouse or to your children if they were dying.  I asked Richard Schulze to rate the herb tinctures on the market today and he said on a scale of zero to one hundred, most are between a 0 and a 20.


One of the best ways to kick-up your energy levels is to make a formula of equal parts fresh ginger, fresh garlic, and cayenne pepper. Mix with juice or food, or put into capsules.

) Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba): This is not a plant, it's a tree. It grows everywhere and is common in parks. There is no reason to go to healthfood stores and buy ginkgo products. Make them yourself. Ginkgo is so great for the brain that you should buy a ginkgo tree for your yard.

#31) Hawthorn Berries (Crataegus pinnatifida): Anyone who has a heart condition and doesn't take hawthorn has a class 1 death wish. Hawthorn binds to heart cells and makes you require less oxygen. It lets your heart survive on less blood. Heart cells repair themselves quicker when hawthorn is present. Leaves and flowers are also potent for the heart, although hawthorn is known more for its berries. Combine hawthorn tincture with motherwort, garlic and ginger for the most heart healing.

#40) Mullein Flower (Verbascum thapsus): Mullein is easy find and grow, as compared to the herb lobelia. Mullein is one of our best herbs for the lungs, and for glands. Mullein flower oil is famous for use in curing ringing in the ears and infections, especially when combined with St. John's wort and garlic oil.

#46) Plantain (Plantago major): If you are going to stock half frozen herbs, this has to be one of them. It grows everywhere except the deserts. This was Dr. Christopher's favorite herb food-poisoning. Any time there was a puncture or a wound, he would recommend a plantain poultice. Bruise the leaves, or make in in a blender, and put them on. This herb can save you from stings, spider bites — even snake bites. You can also use it for mouth infections, gum abscesses, and rotten teeth. You can put in juicer and drink it to purify your blood.

“In fact, it can be detrimental. So that's why, for years, I've been using nutritional yeast, and I have seen unbelievable changes in people with multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy on this food.  It actually makes their speech better and makes their twitches- go away. I can't underplay the nutritional aspect of this, too. A lot of these people, because of the stress they're under, when you put B vitamins into their system from a natural source, I've seen where it's almost gone away.

“Oh, I've had patients who have had numerous diseases for ten or twelve years take three or four doses of that superfood mixture I gave you the recipe for, and they're 80% better in a couple of days, just by getting the food they need.”

Nutritional yeast is a single-cell plant, which means that it goes into your blood stream predigested. Spirulina is the highest source of natural vitamin B12 on the market. There's no higher source of B-12, and the second highest is nutritional yeast; that's why I use them both.  They both go into your body before they even hit your stomach, because they're single-cell plants, which means you don't have to digest them. It's just like whales sucking plankton; they don't have to digest it. It just goes right into their blood stream. So this is a key factor.

A person with their gallbladder removed can do all of the cleansing and building programs as normal. Their gall bladder was removed usually because it was packed full (constipated) with fat, cholesterol and stones and the doctors, instead of showing the patient how to clean it out (liver-gallbladder flushes), cut it out.
    This person should do all the bowel cleansing first, ICF#1 and #2 and then do the 5 day cleanse with the liver/gall bladder flushing, the liver gall bladder tonic, and the detox tea. They should just cut all the liver and gall bladder dosages in half to start and then work their way up to normal.
    The gall bladder is like the rectum of the liver. Fats and other wastes that are processed by the liver are deposited in the gall bladder. Then, when it is full, the gall bladder contracts and empties the contents, via the bile duct, into the stomach/small intestine (duodenum).
    When the gall bladder has been removed, it is a sure sign than it has been congested and possible liver disease is around the corner: It is still possible to flush the liver via the bile ducts, although it should be done with a lesser intensity (start with 1/2 dosages and work up to full) and over a longer period of time (two weeks instead of one week) and more frequently (4 to 6 times a year instead of 2 to 3 times a year).

Get a midwife, have your baby at home, and avoid ob's and pediatricians like the plague.

To stimulate blood to the gums for new growth, cayenne is the best. For teeth and gum infections, Tea Tree oil and garlic are the dynamic duo. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

I've had hundreds of patients with cataracts get better eyesight and get rid of their cataracts....I've had many patients lessen their prescription on their glasses and eventually throw their glasses away. I've had many patients with glaucoma recover. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

They call it 'complimentary medicine', like we're complimenting medical doctors? Give me a break! What I am teaching your readers cures what doctors cannot. That's not complementary: That's a replacement.

“When a doctor prescribes morphine for you, and you have cancer, if he hasn't said so, that means he knows you are dead.....They do not prescribe morphine to people they are going to do surgery, chemotherapy, radiation on. They give it after all hope is gone and they have failed. When the doctor gives you the big bottle of morphine liquid and says, "You can get all the refills you want," he knows you are not going to be around too long. He is not worried about you becoming a junkie.[1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

Ever since lobelia was introduced to healing by the herbalist Samuel Thompson, medical doctors have tried to attack lobelia on its supposed toxicity. Good herbalists know these attacks to be false.  The lethal dose of lobelia with rats was one alkaloid extracted from a whole bale of lobelia and injected into one single rat. According to Richard, “The medical boys had to go far into left field to cook up that one.”  I'm so sick and tired of people pussyfooting around, being afraid of lobelia. Of course, in our country, it's against the law to use it for internal consumption.[1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

 Even over here in Europe now, the standard dose that therapists are not allowed to go beyond is not enough to be therapeutic. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

The thing that I remember the most was that she was in so much pain when she came — the morphine. She was on a maximum dose of morphine, but, of course, the problem with that is it's a dead-end street, because the morphine stops your liver and stops your bowel. It stops so many of your functions. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

 With pancreas and liver problems, we use tons of chaparral. Of course, herbalists say that chaparral causes liver cancer. And here we are with liver cancer giving people tons of chaparral — and they get cured. Chaparral dissolves and destroys cancerous tumors. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

"When he presented it live to the American Heart Association. They turned him down flat.  He said, “I can't believe it. I've got a program here that's proven, that's reduced coronary plaque in the arteries, with angiograms and CAT scans to back it up.” And they said, the average American was not going to adapt to a vegetarian food program.  They felt that the average American would opt for coronary bypass surgery. I couldn't believe it when they said that.  That's what stupid morons the American Heart Association thinks that Americans are.  They think we're so stupid, so constipated, and so stuck in our ways that we'd rather have a Skill saw cut through our sternum, cutting our veins out of our legs, stripping them out, cutting arteries out of our heart and replacing them. We would rather do that and be in Intensive Care for a week and a half and have a keloid scar from our throat down to our bellybutton.  If that isn't horrible enough, there's severe pain when you come out of the operation. They've cut your rib cage in half.  And, as Americans, we would rather do that, knowing that in ten years maximum we're going to be right back in the same place and knowing that every other artery in our body is still clogged. We'd rather do that than change our diet. I don't believe that.  My experience has been that the average American would rather change their diet and their ways. The American Heart Association has to be working hand-in-hand with the surgeons and medical doctors. They love each other. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

I find that most cardiologists I talk to don't discount this anymore. Especially after Dr. Dean Ornish blew the lid off. So they can’t say it's not true anymore. Especially after the American Heart Association won't put their little heart on a menu anymore next to anything that is animal products. It's just that they don't give the patient the option. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

Hawthorn berries I look at more as, like, they are strengthening to the heart and they are protecting to the heart. The cayenne is more to deal with the circulation. The hawthorn is more of a food for the heart — but it should not be underestimated.  Today, the quality of hawthorn preparations stinks. The dosages are so small they're useless. I use five times as much as anyone else — just to start — but my patients lived.  The one thing good about hawthorn is that hawthorn is a food. Cayenne is a food. You can't overdose on hawthorn because there are chemicals in it that are like flavonoids; they are like vitamins, but they happen to protect the heart muscle from damage and cause the heart to be stronger.

I am so convinced infection comes from the inside. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

I have seen garlic heal cancer, inside and out and I have seen it destroy all bacteria, virus, fungus, worms and parasites, everything inside, and outside too.  Garlic is the most potent killer of bacteria, virus and fungus, in fact any antigen/pathogen, stronger than any other herb. In other words, echinacea may stimulate the immune system more than garlic, at least there is more clinical proof of this, but it is not nearly as potent at directly destroying pathogens.  Garlic does enhance the immunity, but is the deadliest killer of everything that can hurt you. This is why I say echinacea and garlic are the best dynamic duo.
    Pharmaceutical antibiotics are non-selective in their destruction of bacteria in your body; they just destroy it all.  This creates many problems because our body has millions of so-called friendly bacteria that we need for proper metabolic functions. This is why many people, after a course of antibiotic therapy, have digestive problems, constipation, and yeast and fungal overgrowth infections.  A worse problem is that antibiotics don't destroy 100% of a bacteria strain in your body. Usually only 99%. The remaining bacteria mutates, becomes more deadly and antibiotic-resistant. This is how very lethal, antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria are created.
    Garlic is totally selective in its bacteria destruction, only killing bacteria that's harmful to our body. What is amazing is that, at the same time, garlic actually enhances our friendly bacteria and improves our intestinal flora and digestion. 
Garlic destroys many types of bacteria including Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Typhoid, Diphtheria, cholera, bacterial dysentery (Traveller’s diarrhea), Tuberculosis, Tetanus, Rheumatic bacteria, and many others.  But, that's not all, garlic is also an extremely potent anti-viral agent. Garlic has been tested against many viruses and is known to destroy on contact the viruses that cause Measles, Mumps, Mononucleosis (Epstein-Barr), Chicken pox, Herpes simplex #1 and #2, Herpes Zoster, Viral Hepatitis, scarlet fever, Rabies and others.  But still, that's not all. Garlic's anti-fungal ability is second to none. In the laboratory, it has proven to be more potent than any known antifungal agent including Nystatin. Garlic will regulate the overgrowth of Candida albicans and positively kill ringworm.
    Garlic is a proven cancer remedy.  About l/3rd of all the medical research into garlic is cancer-related.  Garlic has been shown to help our white blood cells not only defend us against cancer, but also to increase our ability to destroy tumors. When the properties of garlic are present in the bloodstream, many aspects of our immunity are enhanced. Garlic has also been found to stimulate interferon production, enhance natural killer cells, stop tumor growth, and even reduce the associated pain of cancer.  Most of the research has been done on cancers of the digestive tract. In one medical university study, garlic was shown to reduce stomach cancer 10 times more effectively than the non garlic-eating group. [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

Drugs were designed by taking one chemical out of an herb, isolating it, concentrating it, and giving it to a person in extremely large doses. Because of that, we have the Physician's Desk Reference with 3,000 pages filled with the diseases, the cancer, the heart disease, the liver disease, and the mutated children that are caused by doing that..... It's an unsafe thing to do. Nature has put these things in a form that is usable for us. So what we do is, we blast ourselves for 20 years with beer and pepperoni and cigarettes and chocolate and ice cream, and then we want to turn it all around in a week. Part of natural healing is, you have to be patient and you will get the results.  Those who use the isolated drugs will get the results, but they will get another disease. Guaranteed. They will fix the liver and wreck the bowel. Or, they will cause new diseases that will be called “side effects.” [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)

We have been brainwashed by medicine. I don't want to get too political with this, but medicine in our country has been on a crusade over the last hundred years to wipe out every other form of medicine.  One of the things they did that was unique was they lobbied to make words legal only for them to use.  Today, in the United States, only a medical doctor can diagnose a disease, prescribe something, and cure you. Nobody else can say “diagnose”, “prescribe” and “cure”. That means that nobody can cure you but a medical doctor.  That is why you see TV advertisements for Monistat 7, the anti-fungal medication to destroy yeast in a woman's vagina. They say, “My doctor said this is the cure,” and they use that word all the time on those commercials. “This is the cure. My doctor said it's the cure.”  They know we can't say that. I can't say, “Chaparral is the cure for a tumor.” I can't say that garlic is the cure for cholesterol or high blood pressure. They have made that law. So that makes me look stupid, impotent, and it makes the herbs look weak and wimpy....I can't, as an herbalist, say that an herb will cure, even though a lot of the prescription drugs are made from those herbs.  This was a tactic by the organized medical industry to wipe out the opposition, by making them look silly and impotent.  They can walk out and say, “Yes, if you take this drug, you will cure yourself.” But they hired the lawyers and got the government behind them.  If I say that, I go to jail. It isn't because the herbs don't work and the drugs are better, it's just because they have more money, they lobbied more and got the law passed in their favor. That is why people get this idea that herbs don't cure you.
    What they have done reminds me of going into a casino in Las Vegas. These casino owners have done everything possible to get the money out of your pocket.  There are no clocks, there are no windows, and you don't know what time of day it is. And you end up walking through the lobby and spending $5,000. They are professionals at it.  In the same way, The American Medical Association and the pharmaceutical industry are professionals not only at sales, but at their image. They are also experts at making laws to protect them and make every other form of healing illegal in our country.  (BISER: The natural healers buy into that by sticking to trivial conditions, by using junk formulas and by being politicians!) SCHULZE: And by saying, “We won't use chaparral for a while, because the AMA says that it may be dangerous, and the Food and Drug Administration is suggesting we don't.”  They don't realize the Food and Drug Administration and the pharmaceutical industry and the doctors are laughing their asses off at the herbalists — knowing that they have won. (BISER: Knowing they have made one of the best antioxidants of all times illegal!)  SCHULZE: Absolutely. Pharmaceutical drugs are killing hundreds of thousands of people every year in our country. In spite of that, they claim that two people were hurt with chaparral, so they have taken it off the market. And those claims aren't even substantiated. And the herbalists are saying. “Okay,” because they are hoping that will get them recognized.  They are trying to pass laws in various countries in Europe that say to herbalists, “If anybody comes to you who is sick, you have to refer them to a medical doctor first.” Why would they do that? For money. Absolutely, for money [1994] Shulze Biser Heal Your Life videos (transcripts)
