International Society of Naturopathic Physicians (ISNP)
I was invited, sometime ago now, to represent the field of Iridology and serve on the U.S. Advisory Board for the ISNP by Dr. C.P. Negri, OMD, NMD., It was a great honor and I hold such respect for the other members of the Board.
After initially accepting the position, however, I decided to decline based on specific principles I hold and have stated before several Official Bodies. In a letter dated 21 July, 2008, I wrote, "At last, however, I cannot reconcile my opinion that the use of the title "physician" in conjunction with the practice of Naturopathy is appropriate..."
I have held that anyone using the title "physician" must obtain a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree and appropriate licensure to practice medicine- Naturopathic or otherwise.
"Doctors of Naturopathy", "Naturopathic Doctors" and/ or "Naturopaths" have long been recognized by Act of Congress (1929) and Registry in Washington, D.C., Part of the requirement is to distinctly distance ourselves from the medical field in deed and title.
The "DE-TOX" BLAH, BLAH, BLAH
So many people over the years have asked me if I have "De-Tox" products. You know- something I can do in a weekend!
Don't be a fool!
"10-Day", "Weekend", "Hollywood" C'mon! Do I really have to tell you folks?
Holistic and replenishment nutrition combined with Iridology as Jensen pioneered it puts this non-sense to the side. It is just another scheme by peddlers who are playing on your laziness and conceit.
After professional assessment, it can take 90 days to a year to "de-tox" safely and efficiently. We as practitioners help identify probable nutritional deficiencies which can affect bio activity in the body. Once addressed by the implementation of dietary and lifestyle changes based on data from careful assessment, analysis and case taking the body activity begins to pick up and eliminations increase.
The body naturally holds and releases toxins through normal "life". Many factors, most importantly- hydration, can affect these cycles. Naturopaths, and specifically Iridologists, are well versed in assessing these genetic pre-dispositions and life style factors. Educating people about their particular "clocks" and helping the owners learn the manual.
Long standing toxic settlement whether organic or spiritual isn't going to flush out of you over a weekend by popping expensive "natural treatments".

Goat Milk Magic!
I have used a Goat Whey product with my clients for many years now with excellent results. The superior dairy nutritional value of Goat's milk over cow's milk is undeniable. Any credentialed and experienced practitioner will tell you so!
Dr Jensen was a renowned advocate of goat's milk- raising his own herds. Countless stories of the benefits he experienced using goat's milk in his practice were included often in his lectures. Most of the world's population use goat's milk. It provides, in general, 13% more calcium, 134% more potassium and 350% more niacin than cow's milk and doesn't contain the controversial bovine growth hormone (BGH) according to the Little Mill Creek dairy's brochure.
I have come across a local goat dairy in Ridgeway, PA. and recommend that you contact Cliff & Jeanette Stump at 814.772.5461 for more information about their products. www.littlemillcreek.net
