Dr. Schulze's Blog Post Causes a Thumbs Up and a Thumbs Down!

We like Dr. Schulze's products, particularly his SuperFood Plus and we love what he stands for; telling people that nutrition is the key to good health and correcting poor health can be done through nutrition as well. However, recently he made a big "no no." A few days ago we got an e-mail notification on his latest blog post called "Orange Juice Causes Cancer?" and I thought well this has to be something to do with store bought Orange Juice and how it is processed or what they put in it, but it turned out it had nothing to do with Orange Juice at all. He posted a question that a customer sent him along with is response. Here is what it had to say (I respond in gray to his response):

Dear Dr. Schulze,

I am taking Intestinal Formula #1. However when I look up two of the things that are in the product - Senna & Cascara Sagrada, some very disturbing things are said. Senna is toxic to tissue and organs. Cascara Sagrada an herbal stimulant laxative is considered quite dangerous. Causes constipation, the very thing it supposed to relieve, along with digestive problems, liver damage, lesions in colon, rectal bleeding, Hepatitis. You are saying it helps... seems contrary to what I am hoping to accomplish. I hope you will respond to this please.                         — Pat S. in Independence, MO, USA
For me this is a perfectly logical question. I beleive everyone should do there homework. Never take someing without knowing what it is and what it will do and the most powerful tool that anyone can have for that is the internet, but be aware that there is false information out there!

WHOA! What garbage are you reading and where the heck are you looking?

The Libertarians have a great statement: QUESTION AUTHORITY, which simply means to Question the AUTHOR. Personally, I question almost everything, and then I go into my heart and I make my best-informed decision.
A small amount of the information regarding herbs on the Internet is written by people who have no education or training in herbal medicine or for whatever reason hate plants! Then, you have the articles about herbs (usually they are more like negative warnings) written by Medical Doctors, Medical Groups and Associations, the Pharmaceutical Industry and Drug Manufacturers. Again, usually these articles are more like warnings, that seem to always start out by promoting the herb, but by the end of the article they always end up saying things like, “this herb is not proven effective”, or “it may not be safe to use” and then they always end with telling you to not use the herbs unless you consult your medical doctor (a person who knows absolutely nothing about herbs and usually will suggest chemical drugs instead). Generally, the medical industry DOES NOT want you to use herbs to treat yourself. It takes money right out of the pocket of that $2 trillion dollar industry! So let’s take a big breath here and look at the stupidity of the ridiculous statements you are making, or that they are making and you are repeating.
Everything but the red gets a thumbs up. In red is a BIG NO NO for me! She did not make a statement she found information on a product that he is selling and then had a concern/question for him. To me it was rude and a bit arrogant, but unfortunately there is more.
He continues on to explain how Senna and Cascara Sagrada have been around for a very long time and have been used by the Indians or ancient civilizations and even prescribed by doctors. Then he says:

FIRST, repeat after me… “In Dr. Schulze I Trust!”
You can buy a lot of herbs and herbal products. There are many sold in stores and even in pharmacies. You can buy them online, you can even buy bags of herbs and even make your own formulas, but when you buy herbal medicines from me… you are not just buying herbal medicines… you are buying DR. SCHULZE. And there is a BIG DIFFERENCE!

Look, I am not asking you to blindly trust me, but I am asking for some level of trust here, otherwise you should just go to the store and buy any old herbal products, or go to a medical doctor and take drugs.

Why should you trust me? Mainly because I have been an Herbal Doctor all of my life. My two teachers alone practiced herbal medicine in their clinics for a combined 100 years, and when you add in my over 40 years of experience so far, well, you have got 140 years of experience and well over 200,000 patients. I don’t know everything, but I KNOW Natural Healing and I KNOW Herbal Medicine, and I know how to help people to heal themselves using herbal medicine. This I know!

Pat, you have to trust in somebody, some of the time, so I suggest you STOP looking for the few negative reports written by ignorant people about wonderful healing herbs, and START focusing on Creating Powerful Health, and START trusting in me. Or, STOP using herbs altogether and go to medical doctors. Just pick one and stop panicking and STOP working yourself up into a frenzy—this is what’s going to make you sick!

The only person you need to trust is God and yourself and everone else needs to be questioned! His response is ego talking! She was not questioning his knowledge; in fact she was asking him to use his knowledge to answer her question. I also know that when people are sick and looking for answers they are scared and they should be. Anything you take can either help make you better or make you worse! Dr. Schulze is letting his ego get in the way, all he really needs to do is give he the simple facts to rest her mind that what she found on the net was simply not true and help reaffirm her that she is on the right path and let the results speak for his years of experience.

Orange Juice Causes Cancer?
If you look hard enough, you can find articles written promoting or condemning anything and everything. God exists. God doesn’t exist. Apples heal. Apples cause cancer.
Two glasses of orange juice fed to a male rat supposedly gave it cancer—yep, that’s on the Internet too! Look it up. Oh yeah, and there are lots of stories about computers causing cancer, too. Inoculations save lives? Inoculations KILL? It’s all out there.

Just look up Chemotherapy on Wikipedia and you will see a woman smiling in the picture, like she is having a ball, getting her chemotherapy. Then why did most of my patients say it was like getting HIT IN THE HEAD WITH A BASEBALL BAT, or like getting RUN OVER BY A TRUCK? Also, Wikipedia says it’s an effective cancer treatment, but to the contrary, the Federal Government’s own General Accounting Office report stated that: “There was no observable improvement” with using chemotherapy! It’s a confusing world out there.

Seek Your Own Truth!
Look Pat, you have to believe in something. So go inward into your heart, you will find what is right for you. Trust yourself. Seek your own truths!

That should have been his response along with the facts! Thumbs Up! But then he lets me down again.

The Bottom Line
It seems to me that
you are looking for evidence to NOT get your bowel working, to NOT get healthy and to NOT use Natural Healing and Herbal Medicine. Because this is exactly what you found!

Most people when researching herbs they want to use, just read the articles about how using the herb will improve their life, and maybe even save it. So the Big Question I have here is why are you doing this? Whom are you trying to convince—what is your point?

My patients that were always looking for reasons to not use herbs and not get healthy, well, they usually found their reasons and achieved these goals. I strongly suggest that you get your head screwed on straight, focus on what you WANT, and want to achieve, and Just Do It! What you are doing now will cause illness and disease, and it’s NOT FUN!

Wow, a simple question becomes a badgering of "I am right and you don't want to be healthy". If she was "looking for evidence to NOT get her bowel working, to NOT get healthy and to NOT use Natural Healing and Herbal Medicine" she would have never taken your product in the first place JACKASS!!! Sorry, but this response of his has made me mad, it is too much like a typical doctor's egotistical response after he feels he has been challenged. We have enough problems with gaining credibility in the "natural alternative world" without having these kinds of "anchors" to slow us down even more! Be proud of using methods that are not part of the standard modern day medicine, but don't be a jerk or have an ego when someone challenges your methods. Just give them the facts!
To top it off, "get your head screwed on straight"? What? I have spoken to rude, egotistical doctors that haven't spoken to me in this manor before. Where is the compassion? Where is the empathy? In the 40 year of experience have you not learned those things? What about the 2 doctors with 100 years of experience, did they skip that lesson? Would your mentors be proud of this response or disappointed?
Pat, I think it is obvious as to who's head is screwed on crooked and Dr. Schulze just to clarify for you and I am no doctor but, it is clear that it is not her head that is the issue but, her digestive system.
This post/response from Dr. Schulze was so disappointing that I did not just respond here but I also e-mail him this same response. I hope that he reads it and makes some sort of an apology to Pat and his readers for the lack of empathy and compassion he had. Furthermore, the fact that he all but called her crazy in front of his Blog readers!!
