I first started taking ORMUS on about
made my first precipitate using water from Samo hot spring, which is four
blocks from where I live. My second precipitate came from
Since May of 1997 I have taken ORMUS products from many of the ORMUS providers though most of the ORMUS I have ingested since then has been trap water and sea water precipitate from various sources.
It might be helpful, at this point, to give a bit of my health history. I was not very healthy as a child. I ate a lot of refined sugar products and the usual "junk" foods available in the fifties and sixties. I had lots of dental cavities and, by the time I was out of grade school, I had mercury fillings in most of my teeth. Here are some school photos from my youth:
In 1964 I became depressed and ended up in a state mental hospital for a month. I got out before Thanksgiving and took anti-depressants for about six months. In the spring of 1965 I saw an endocrinologist who suggested growth hormone therapy which I did for about six months after I quit the anti-depressants.
My dad was always more into healthy eating than my mom till I got depressed in 1964. In the years after 1964 my mom gradually got more and more into "health foods" and by 1966 she started pointing out that my past depression was probably due to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) brought on by the refined sugar we commonly used. In 1968 she started a "health food store" on the back porch of the family home.
was the same year I graduated from high school. I started
In the summer of 1969, after college got out, I got a job working for the Forest Service and rented a house a block away from my parent's home. That summer I planted my first organic garden in the back yard of this rental house and ate a lot of food from it. Also, I took my first B Vitamin supplement that summer. It was the best "high" that I ever had up till that time. The second day I took it, it was not quite as good and the third day I barely noticed a thing.
I think that ORMUS works a bit like this for many people. I consider it to be essential nutrients that can have a fairly profound effect if you are not used to them but the initial experience quickly diminishes to be replaced by gradual, nearly imperceptible, changes over the long run.
“Therefore, eat not anything which fire, or frost, or water has destroyed. For burned, frozen and rotted foods will burn, freeze and rot your body also (1). Be not like the foolish husbandman who sowed in his ground cooked, and frozen, and rotten seeds. And the autumn came, and his fields bore nothing. And great was his distress. But be like that husbandman who sowed in his field living seed, and whose field bore living ears of wheat, paying a hundredfold for the seeds which he planted. For I tell you truly, live only by the fire of life, and prepare not your foods with the fire of death, which kills your foods, your bodies and your souls also.”
“Master, where is the fire of life?” asked some of them.
“In you, in your blood, and in your bodies.”
“And the fire of death?” asked others.
“It is the fire which blazes outside your body, which is hotter than your blood. With that fire of death you cook your foods in your homes and in your fields. I tell you truly, it is the same fire which destroys your foods and your bodies, even as the fire of malice, which ravages your thoughts, ravages your spirits. For your body is that which you eat, and your spirit is that which you think. Eat nothing, therefore, which a stronger fire than the fire of life has killed. Wherefore, prepare and eat all fruits of trees, and all grasses of the fields, and all milk of beasts good for eating. For all these are fed and ripened by the fire of life; all are the gift of the angels of our Earthly Mother. But eat nothing to which only the fire of death gives savor, for such is of Satan.”
“So eat always from the table of God: the fruits of the trees, the grain and grasses of the field, the milk of beasts, and the honey of bees. For everything beyond these is of Satan, and leads by the way of sins and of diseases unto death. But the foods which you eat from the abundant table of God give strength and youth to your body, and you will never see diseases For the table of God fed Methuselah of old, and I tell you truly, if you live even as he lived, then will the God of the living give you also long life upon the earth as was his.”
stayed with this raw diet for three years until a few months after my first
marriage. I also did some fasting in this time period. You can see how I looked
from behind in the picture below from my first wedding on
As you can see I was a bit thin.
Nine months later, my son was born and three or four months after that the following picture was taken:
A month or so after this picture was taken my wife left me and I went into depression for several months. This time, I knew how to “manage” my depression with diet so I did not stay depressed for as long. However, I did notice that after a few months of relative inactivity, I was exhausted after climbing three flights of stairs.
In 1982 I met the woman who was to become my second wife. You can see a picture of me from this year below:
Notice the “crow’s feet” wrinkles near my eyes in the picture above. This is the earliest picture I could find with wrinkles. Below I have a picture of me at age 60 which shows a very similar level of skin wrinkles.
I first noticed a bit of grey in my beard in 1993. Here is a picture from early 1993 where you can see a bit of grey showing near my jaw line on the side:
more grey showed up before I started taking ORMUS. Below is a picture that was
taken two months before I ingested my first ORMUS on about
Notice that my beard has quite a bit of grey but my hair has no grey. This picture was taken at a Mexican restaurant four days before my 47th birthday.
Back to how I think that ORMUS has helped me to maintain a youthful look and feel. As a sort of baseline comparison, you can see a picture of my two younger brothers from July of 2000 below:
Neither brother was taking ORMUS at the time.
Notice the hair color of my brother on the right and the wrinkles of both brothers. Here is a more recent picture of my oldest younger brother:
Compare this to my hair color and wrinkles in the following picture which was taken of all three of us in December of 2007 (after I had been taking ORMUS regularly for over ten years.)
Note that neither of my younger brothers took ORMUS regularly until 2008.
early 2002 I was giving a lecture in southern
I thought that this was a worthy experiment so I also obtained and tried some ORMUS copper with the results shown at:
I have not had a regular supply of ORMUS copper since then and the color of my beard seems to fluctuate by getting lighter when I don’t take the ORMUS copper and getting darker when I do take it. I have not consistently taken it for a long enough time to get my original dark hair color back.
For the last few years I have been having my mercury fillings removed. I suspect that the extra mercury in my system as a result has not been beneficial to the youthing process. I have often wondered if the mercury might contribute to the loss of color in my beard.
All of the mercury fillings in my upper jaw have been removed but I still have five teeth with mercury fillings in my lower jaw. Both of my younger brothers have had all their upper teeth removed and now use dentures. I have had two upper molars removed and have had four or five root canals.
decided to write all of this up a few days before my 60th birthday
Notice that my beard has a lot of grey and there is a bit of grey starting to show in my hair. Also notice that I still have about the same “crow’s feet” near my eyes that I had in the picture from 1982 when I was 37. Also, if you look closely, you might see a few faint wrinkles on my forehead. (You may have to download the picture and view it full size to see these.)
Looking in the mirror, I cannot find any other wrinkles on my face.
Here is my latest photo:
I have also linked a bunch of comparison images at:
Notice that the famous folks linked on that page are all younger but look older.
I am not sure how much of this effect should be attributed to diet and lifestyle and how much can be attributed to the ORMUS. All but the two youngest of my siblings have maintained a pretty good natural food diet since the seventies.
