Our fasting guests tell us
The Garden is one of their favorite locations within the sanitarium.
Little wonder when you consider all of the lovely, colorful flowers,
visually pleasing landscape,
abundant sage, pine, juniper and sweet, airborne aromas. What our
guests most appreciate about The
Garden is the
soothing, peaceful quietude.
Let’s take a seat over there
at that bench on the lawn, near the bird feeding area. We encourage each
guest to spend some time each day - weather permitting - to sit
quietly out here in The Garden and just BE with nature.
Guests are urged to get a
little sunshine and lots of fresh, mountain air every day possible.
Sunshine and clean air are both abundant here in The Garden. They can
make such a difference in the guest’s outlook and the actual physical
Exposing oneself to nature’s
healing forces, breathing clean air, soaking in life giving sunshine, in
a relaxed environment as guests usually find in
is a planned part of our treatment program.
A daily visit here is
essential for helping to restore one’s health and well being. The
establish the appropriate mental and emotional environment
necessary to bring about the right conditions for arthritis-free
An important part of our
arthritis nature cure program here is our attention to the emotional and
psychological health of each guest. During the years I spent with
Jensen - and since that time - I’ve noticed that guests respond more
favorably to our biological treatments when they’re in a good and
healthy frame of mind.
Toward that desired end, as
part of our program at the Center, each guest partakes in a daily
Self Healing Visualization
These highly recommended and
actually quite enjoyable sessions set the stage for the psychological
attitude necessary to ensure our
nature cure techniques can be
Admittedly, when my schedule
gets a bit too overwhelming I often come out here and sit for a few
minutes or so to relax. This seems to be one of the truly quiet areas of
the sanitarium grounds where you can get away from it all in mind
If you’ve been with us since
the online tour of our facility began, you know that our primary goal is
to first determine and correct the conditions that led to the
development of arthritis and then to methodically restore good health
and create a systemic environment that can effectively promote
In addition to our arthritis nature cure program we offer the same
course of natural therapeutics to those who suffer with such serious
disorders as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, anemia, being overweight or
underweight, insomnia, drug/tobacco or alcohol addiction, nephritis,
asthma, nervous disorders, cancer and many other illnesses.
The arthritis nature cure
program we’ve developed draws from the brilliant works of such
biologically oriented practitioners as Father Sebastian Kneipp of
Bavaria, Dr. Russel Tral, who started our nation’s first school for
biological therapeutics, Dr. John Kellog of Battle Creek Michigan, Henry
Lindlahr MD who was considered the authority on Healing Crises
manifestations, Hippocrates, Dr. Victor G. Rocine of Norway, the
Swedish, Swiss and German nature cure health centers and many third
nature cure advocates and practitioners. However, it is
the singular pioneering work of
Jorgen Bernard Jensen DC, ND, PhD
that carries the greatest influence in our work.
My decision to adhere to Jensen’s basic philosophy, fasting schedule, organic meals
regimen and support activities in treating and bringing arthritis guests
back to restored health, was greatly influenced by the eleven years
I spent with him at his Hidden Valley Health Ranch in Escondido,
During those years I
personally witnessed the miraculous recoveries of many guests
stricken by arthritis, rheumatism and other horrendous wasting
disorders. The primary methods employed were those that we recommend
presently. Jensen stressed the need
for each guest to psychologically leave behind their old way of life
- to walk away from their troubles and begin anew on life’s journey and
get back on the right path.
I recall a class session
where a student asked Jensen why there are so many people still
suffering from arthritis when almost every long term sufferer of
rheumatic disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, were under
some traditional doctor’s direct care. Jensen immediately
replied that modern medicine seeks to address symptoms of disease.
The underlying causes of the disorders were not being addressed.
Consequently the problems are rarely if ever solved using
traditional health care therapies.
To illustrate his point
Jensen took the class back to a time in his life when he made an
extended trip around the globe to the lands and villages of the
world’s oldest and healthiest people.
His carefully chronicled trip - which was
made into a book entitled “World Keys To Health And Long Life” and later
into a film entitled “Doctor Bernard Jensen: His Quest For Health And
Happiness”, narrated by Actor Dennis Weaver
- was intended to bring the long life secrets of the strongest,
healthiest old people in the world back to ‘civilized’ society.
Jensen’s findings were
extraordinary and not at all what one might expect. Before you
leave our website I urge you take a look at what the world’s oldest
people taught Jensen about what it takes to live a long, healthy
and happy life.
Healthy Old People
The REAL cause of arthritis!
I want to take a few minutes
now to share with you my findings - and those of Jensen - about
Cause of Arthritis
My, how time flies. If we
hurry along to the next room I think we can sit in on an inspiring and
quite incredible lecture given by one of our guest speakers, Javier,
who’s visiting us from Southern California. Javier was once a patient of
mine and - at my urging - became a student of Dr. Jensen’s
during the mid 80’s to late 90’s. Javier has an amazing story to
tell about how one of Jensen’s ‘nature drinks’ saved him
from being an arthritic cripple for life. You’ll need to hear his
story for yourself to believe it.
Walk with me back inside the
building and we’ll go listen to
Javier’s incredible story
