The photographs of this young man from India were taken 8 weeks apart. He was a liver cancer patient taking chemo-therapy at the time he learned about the health protocol. Living in India, he did not have access to any of the Joy To Live products, so he stopped taking chemo and went on a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables. He began taking a tsp. of baking soda in a glass of water twice daily and drinking the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon in a glass of water 4 times a day. After about ten days he doubled his intake of lemons by squeezing 2 fresh lemons into a glass of water 4 times a day. In 8 short weeks he is now a picture of health.

Note: The following Health Protocol was later added as an addendum to this book to help people with serious health issues get on a faster track to recovery. 


“It has been reported to me that I’ve been quoted as saying I cured people of cancer. Let me be very clear; I have never said that I cured cancer. What I said is that I have been a Health Researcher since 1970. In that research I discovered the primary causes of disease and I authored some reports which I posted on the internet. Numerous people later contacted me and reported that they had eliminated all of their health conditions, including cancer, using the natural methods that I had posted, without resorting to drugs, radiation or surgery.

“The protocol that I recommend includes detoxification, change of diet and lifestyle, and correcting nutritional deficiencies. With that said let me say that the Joy To Live products do not treat or cure any disease. They simply provide nutrients that sick people are generally lacking. In fact there are other products that provide these missing nutrients. The reason I recommend the Joy To Live products is because of their exceptional high quality, and because they are very reasonably priced.”

1. SALT – Natural Salt

Standard table salt is heated to high temperatures in processing, the trace minerals are stripped off and Aluminum is added to keep it from clumping, all of which make this overused substance unfit for human consumption. Processed foods containing this type of salt should be avoided and natural salt should be substituted in its place.

There are three salts that I recommend: Celtic sea salt, Himalayan salt and Real Salt that comes from Redmond Utah. These salts are readily available in most health food stores, or you can go to

There are cultures that drink 1-2 tsp. of salt in a warm glass of water every morning. They are healthier than those who do not. Salt is Sodium Chloride and Sodium is the water regulating mineral of the body. Anyone who has too much or too little water in the body is most likely deficient in salt.

In fact when people go to the emergency room, often times they are given an IV, which is nothing more than purified water and salt. More often than not, people recover rather quickly after being rehydrated in this manner.

I once read a story of a man who after having had numerous health challenges and several operations, checked himself into a hospital and paid to be put on an IV until he died. After his death, they performed an autopsy and found that all of his organs had healed completely. The indication was that he could have lived a normal life if he had eaten food as well. 

My observation is that the IV is the only cure that modern doctors have in their bag of tricks and if you were to get sick you would likely be better off getting an IV than taking drugs, radiation, chemotherapy, etc.

The problem is, that after giving you an IV most doctors then send you home and recommend a no-salt or low-salt diet, so that you will end up getting dehydrated again and need to come in for another fix of salt water.

Constipation is a result of a dehydrated bowel. When drinking salt water in the above manner, it has the same specific gravity as blood and therefore is shunted to the bowel instead of the kidneys. This cleanses and hydrates the bowel and is a marvelous addition to a good health protocol. Anyone experiencing difficult stools or any kind of bowel inflammation can benefit from drinking salt water in this manner. If you do not experience an immediate improvement in bowel activity, increase the amount of salt you are taking for a few days until you do.

Note: Many people are severely dehydrated and therefore there bodies are hanging onto water. After starting to ingest salt in this manner, some people will balloon up with water as a result and therefore they should take only 1/4 tsp. or less daily in the beginning until their bodies begin to adjust to having salt and extra water in the diet. 

2. BAKING SODA – Used to Alkalinize

The term “pH” stands for the potential of hydrogen, which is simply the measurement of acidity and alkalinity. (7.0 is neutral neither being acid nor alkaline. Normal blood pH is 7.365.)

Use pH test strips to check your first morning urine as a scientific method for monitoring the pH of your body fluids. Do not hold the strip under a stream of urine. This will wash off the chemicals and give a false reading. Either urinate in a jar and dip one end in the urine or simply touch the strip to your private parts after urinating to get one drop of urine on the strip. The strip will then change color, which you will then match up to a color chart that comes with the strips.

Suggestions for increasing pH rapidly: 

First thing in the morning .. stir One (1) rounded teaspoon baking soda in 20 ounces of water. (Use plastic spoon so as not to create a dielectric reaction and also stir counter-clockwise with a plastic spoon.)

May be repeated at bedtime at least two hours after eating, until your pH is at desirable level.

Note: If you start to retain water and swell up, that is an indication that you are severely dehydrated and it may take some time for your body to adjust to having more water. In that case, take smaller doses of baking soda until the swelling goes down and then gradually increase the amount of baking soda that you are taking daily until your pH reaches the desired level. If you are trying to combat some serious condition, you may need to elevate your pH as high as 8.5 - 9.0 until the symptoms subside.

If your morning pH is less than 8.5, you can increase your intake of baking soda. If your pH is more than 9.0 you can back off a little bit. Continue to take baking soda, and check your pH until your symptoms disappear.

Once your symptoms disappear, you can then reduce the amount of baking soda that you take daily. Because normal blood pH is 7.365, I personally try to keep my pH close to 7.4 in order that my body systems do not have to work too hard to maintain an optimum blood pH.

How long do you need to keep taking Baking Soda? Just like the oil dipstick in your car tells you when you need to add oil to the engine, using the pH tests strips frequently will tell you when you need to take some extra baking soda in order to maintain a healthy body pH.

Baking soda should not be taken on a full stomach because it will neutralize the digestive acids, quickly releasing a large amount of gas, which could then cause bloating and extreme discomfort. The exception to this rule may be if you are experiencing a lot of heartburn, then sip some baking soda and water SLOWLY, which will in turn release the gases more slowly, allowing time to belch up the gas that are being created.

When taking extra Sodium, it is sometimes necessary to take some Potassium supplement at the same time to keep these two minerals in balance. Wine makers use Potassium Bicarbonate, which can be purchased from a winemaker or purchased online. It resembles baking soda in appearance and is also an alkaline mineral. If you like, you can mix the two together. I would use at least 3 parts Sodium to 1 part Potassium. Or you can purchase some Potassium Citrate from your local health food store. Just take enough Potassium to avoid leg cramps.

NOTE: Some people have reported increased bowel activity with baking soda. If diarrhea is experienced, first understand that the body is cleansing, which is a good thing. This condition will subside when toxins are removed, however if this conflicts with work or other activities, simply cut back on baking soda temporarily until detoxification subsides.

If you can’t find pH testing strips locally you can order them online at: VitaCost

3. IONIC SILVER (product of JoyToLive)

Joy To Live Silver is safe to use and kills every known yeast, mold, fungus, virus and bacteria, including candida. 

Every disease is accompanied by an overgrowth of disease causing microorganisms. The problem with antibiotics is they no longer kill all of the bad bugs and there are some potential serious side effects from using these drugs.

Yeast colonies neutralize your immune system, allowing damage inside of the cell at the DNA level. Joy To Live Ionic Silver is a broad-spectrum preventative agent. It destroys yeast and bacteria in as little as 15 seconds, and the latest research on cancer indicates that cancer is nothing more than an overgrowth of yeast colonies.

Note: Most brands of ionic Silver are positively charged. The opening or mouth of the human cell is positively charged to repel positively charged (poison) minerals and toxins from entering the cell. Joy To Live Ionic Silver is broken down to its electrical component and bonded with Hydrogen ions, giving it a negative charge so that it can get inside of the cell and destroy disease causing microbes at the cellular level.

“Can Cancer Cause Candida?” See: *** ***

If I personally had any life threatening health condition, I would want to kill off the microorganisms that were making me sick as quickly as possible by drinking approximately:

     Four (4) ounces of Ionic Silver on Day (1) One, sipping it every hour.
     Four (4) ounces on Day (2) Two, sipping it every hour.
     Two (2) ounces daily for the Next (5) Five Days;
     Two (2) tablespoons (= 1 ounce) Twice (x 2) Daily thereafter as a maintenance dose until symptoms improve.

NOTE: If you choose to take Baking Soda and/or Vitamin C while taking Silver, it is suggested
that you separate the Silver by at least one hour from either of the other two.


4. FULVIA (product of JoyToLive)

Provides 85+ essential minerals.

Fulvia may help detoxify the liver and the blood. It neutralizes free radicals, and helps eliminate toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of tumors and disease in general, and it strengthens the immune system.

To avoid possible symptoms that may result from the cleansing effects of Fulvia, I generally recommend that people start with one (1) capsule daily for the first week, and then increase by one (1) capsule daily at the end of each week until symptoms start to improve noticeably. (For example: the first week one capsule per day, the second week two (2) capsules per day, the third week three (3) capsules per day, etc.) Continue taking that amount daily until you are satisfied with your results or until your symptoms are gone, at which time you can reduce to a maintenance dose of 1-2 capsules per day.

Note: In rare cases, some people may experience detox symptoms (diarrhea, tiredness or pain) with just one capsule. If you experience these symptoms, you may try taking one half capsule daily or try taking one capsule every second or third day. Detox is actually a good thing and if you can live with the symptoms, it is best to get these toxins out of your body. Drinking extra water (half your body weight in ounces of water) will allow the Fulvia to cleanse you more quickly and will help to flush these toxins out of your body more effectively. Health experts recommend that you drink one half ounce of water for each pound of body weight, or 1 ounce of water per kilogram of body weight, daily.

Some people with very serious health challenges may choose to take one (1) capsule of Fulvia hourly with 16-20 ounces of pure water … with the understanding that you may experience symptoms of detoxification, such as headaches, joint pain, muscle pain, extreme tiredness, diarrhea, etc. These temporary symptoms in many cases may be preferable to what the outcome could be by leaving these toxins in the body.

If your work conditions prohibit you from drinking a lot of water and taking bathroom breaks, you can take
Fulvia morning and evening, starting with two (2) capsules the 1st day, and increase by 1-2 capsules every day, until you experience detox symptoms, or until you see a rapid improvement in your situation, at which time you may choose to maintain that number of capsules taken daily until symptoms are gone, and then eventually decrease to a maintenance dose of 1-2 capsules daily.

Fulvia becomes an ionic solution as soon as it mixes with water and you will not experience the full benefits from taking Fulvia if you are skimping on water. Bear in mind that juices and other beverages do not count toward your requirements for drinking water. Half you body weight in ounces of water in addition to all other liquids is what you need for best results. Furthermore, Fulvia will cause the body to release toxins and they require an abundance of water to be flushed out of the body.

6. NEUTRA-CLEANSE (product of JoyToLive)

Cleansing the Colon.

It is generally believed that all diseases begin in the colon and thus the need for taking Neutra-Cleanse when trying to turn around any health condition.

The recommended dose is 1-2 capsules with glass of water on empty stomach, morning or night.

Also, many people have taken antibiotics during an illness, which kills the intestinal flora. Neutra-Cleanse provides friendly bacteria which so many people are lacking and which are essential to proper digestion and absorption of nutrients.



Studies show that many foods today are lacking in magnesium and therefore many people are deficient in this important mineral.

Magnesium deficiency can include muscle cramps, muscle twitching, facial tics, poor sleep, and chronic pain. Tests showing calcium deficiency may actually be Magnesium deficiency and one of the first recommendations upon receiving low Calcium test results is Magnesium supplementation.

“My research indicates that the best way to absorb Magnesium is transdermally and that many serious health symptoms respond favorably to applying liquid Magnesium to the skin. Put in the clearest terms possible, my suggestion for any serious health condition is to almost drown oneself in Magnesium Chloride applied transdermally.”

NOTE: Spray or rub one (1) ounce into soft skin area daily.

Everything in the universe has its own unique vibration. The word poison comes from the same root as positive and poisons destroy the electrical balance of the neutrons that revolve around the nucleus of the atoms that make up your cells, making you sick.

You should generally eliminate all acid forming foods, including sodas, sugars, artificial sweeteners, wheat, corn, grains, canned fruits and fruit juices, and most dairy products. Especially eliminate ALL GMO food sources. GMO foods are genetically altered and the human body CANNOT utilize such foods. Furthermore, ALL GMO foods are laden with toxic chemicals that are used in the process of growing them. 

I find that when people cannot get rid of pain and are not responding favorably to the rest of this protocol, there is something they are eating or drinking that they need to let go of.

Fruits and vegetables should ALWAYS be fresh and vine ripened. Raw fruits and vegetables can be eaten together, but NEVER eat fruits with meat, cooked vegetables or flour products. Fruits are designed to leave the stomach within half an hour and when eaten with other foods, they will remain in the stomach for longer than half an hour and they will produce a lot of acids and gases. Canned foods are not fit for human consumption and will not give you what you need to create healthy cells.

Taking a little apple cider vinegar or some digestive enzymes with heavy foods can help improve digestion and reduce acid reflux from indigestion.

Plenty of pure water is essential to health. In addition to all other drinks that you may consume, you need to drink half your body weight in ounces of water. For example, if you weigh 100 lbs. drink 50 ounces of water daily.

10. LEMON JUICE  (addendum: used personally and submitted by John Austin)

Fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice is one of the best cancer killers and since all diseases have essentially the same root, adding some lemon or lime to the diet could be helpful.

This is an effective and proven method of cleansing which can facilitate healing throughout the entire body.

While personally doing this cleanse, I take the following Joy To Live products with either baking soda or with lemon water (as described below):

I then later have a cup of Lejoyva coffee. More supplements can be taken later in the day if you feel the need to do so.

First thing in the morning I take a rounded plastic tsp. of baking soda in 20 oz. of water. Stir counterclockwise with a plastic spoon.

Several times throughout the day I drink 20 oz. of water with the juice of 2 freshly squeezed small limes or 1/2 to 1 lemon and 1/4 tsp. of Real Salt. I do this as often as I feel hungry or I need more energy.

Note: DO NOT use regular table salt and if you are severely dehydrated (which many people are) you may need to use smaller amounts of salt in the beginning as your body is in the mode of retaining water and will take some time to regulate itself to having the right kind of salt and plenty of water.

Thousands of people regularly use lemon water as a way to cleanse the body and it can safely be done for 7 days without eating any other food. This cleanse can also be done for shorter durations of time to fit your personal schedule. You should also get extra rest when doing this cleanse.

Some people have recommended using organic - B Grade Maple Syrup to sweeten this beverage, but in my opinion, the sugars feed candida, and cancer is nothing more than overgrown yeast colonies. I personally prefer taking Fulvia and other JTL products for the minerals that may be found in the Mape Syrup. 

Another thing that I use, and which I find to be very effective is to meditate or sit quietly and imagine that my body has all of the nutrition it needs for healing and rejuvenation. I then surround myself with the feeling of having this nutrition by asking myself, "How does it feel to have all of the nutrients I need for healing and rejuvenating my body?" You can end this meditation with an affirmation by saying something like "So let it be done" or "I am so happy and thankful that I now have all of the nutrition I need to heal and rejuvenate my body."

“What if the worst thing that could happen is Nothing?”

Christine Waterbury had 4th Stage Thyroid and Lymph Node Cancers when she started on the Health Protocol. After checking into the hospital, she was infected with MRSA Virus, which by itself is often fatal. With a weakened immune system and due to the late stage of her cancers and the fact that doctors have nothing that will kill MRSA, they gave her up to die. 

Her husband Richard heard about my health protocol and he purchased several of the Joy To Live products, which he began giving to her while she was still in the hospital. He frequently rubbed JTL Silver on the bottoms of her feet. We believe that the Silver was absorbed into her bloodstream, killing the MSRA. 

Christine also was taking therapeutic doses of Fulvia along with other of the JTL products. The last photo was taken 8 months later after being pronounced cancer free by her doctors. Click HERE to to hear her story and to learn more about the Joy To Live flagship product Fulvia.
