Exposing Health Fads


Health is defined as a “state of being bodily and mentally vigorous and free from disease, illness or injury.”

Fad, on the other hand, is defined as “an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, esp. one that is short-lived and without basis in the object’s quality.”

Thus, the term “health fad” can be defined as any practice that one enthusiastically employs, which one believes will improve and promote their health and longevity, without any individualized analysis to reasonably verify the purpose of use. In other words, health fads come into existence due to beliefs founded on a common approved virtue rather than truth.

Stop and think about it. Are there health practices you are carrying on and/or promoting based on the power of a group-approved virtue, when you actually in truth don’t have a clue as to its benefit to your health or longevity. If so, you can be wasting time, money and especially your health in the process. Everyone may need to be de-faded sometime. One way to start is to acquaint yourself with a reliable reference point.  There is a reliable reference point found in Reams’ Biological Theory of Ionization (RBTI).

Yes, RBTI first exposes the unique biochemical individuality of anyone, and then reveals the specific changes and alterations in diet and lifestyle practices necessary to bring on real health, wellness and longevity.

Beginning back in the 1930s, Dr. Reams was led to discover that true health could be defined through a mathematical model that has come to be referred to as the RBTI “numbers.” This model resulted from a keen understanding of the way Einstein’s energy equation (E=mc2) revealed how biological life develops and functions on the same type of energy that brought us into the atomic age. Having stood the empirical testing of time, Reams’ model is a reference point for true “perfect health” — not just “normal” health. Through the vast amount of health and diet information that this math model is able to reveal, from simple tests performed on fresh samples of an individual’s urine and saliva — health fads, facts and truths are readily exposed, along with how to properly feed and care for the biochemical uniqueness of any person.

For example, RBTI demonstrates that humans do not live off the food they eat, rather they live off the energy from that food in the form of ionic mineral, heat and electricity that results from the food encountering the right electro-chemical pressure or resistance from proper digestive enzymes. RBTI mathematically defines “perfect health” as the optimum building and maintenance of mineral energy reserves throughout life (see RBTI “Numbers” above), while aging and disease are nothing more than a premature loss of mineral energy reserves as demonstrated via the RBTI analysis. One of the conclusions of RBTI’s mathematical energy model reveals that anything in the diet and lifestyle that does not add to an individual’s mineral energy reserves, based on the RBTI urine and saliva analysis, would be classed as a useless fad.

Dr. Reams always brought in the subject of fads when addressing new RBTI students by saying:

  • “The Biological Theory of Ionization is not difficult, it’s just different. And the unlearning processes in this course are one of the things you’re going to find most difficult, especially to unload your fads. When you unload your fads, you’re going to feel awful light. You’re going to feel insecure. You’re going to feel like you’re lost for a while. Then you’ll have the meanings at your fingertips to know the truth through the numbers.”

Reams often used this story in speaking about fads:

  • “A man came into my office and said, “Doctor, what do you think about anybody living on an all raw food diet?” I responded in a joking way by saying, “It’s good enough for an old goat.” He said, “I raise goats and I live on all raw foods.” When I tested him, he was as sick as any person I’ve seen. What I’m saying is, don’t get hooked on a fad, go by the numbers. If the body is too acid, make it a bit more alkaline. If it has too much salt, take the salt out of the diet and be sure to use distilled water. If too much sugar, drop the sugar down. If the body doesn’t have enough of something, try to get it into the body, and don’t forget the importance of potassium. If it has too much, try to reduce it.”

A classic fad example that Reams commonly used, was the old “vinegar and honey” cure, which he usually told like this.

  • “If you have read the vinegar and honey cure book, you’d think that the only thing in the world you needed to be healthy and live to be 150 years old was to take vinegar and honey regularly. Suppose that you had a body that was extremely acid and you also were a diabetic, and into this acid high sugar system you put more acid and more sugar, that’s a perfect example of the foolishness of fads. So what we’re doing is taking the fads out by revealing the truth of diet and health in mathematical numbers and we’re going to go by the numbers to understand how to feed the body.”

A beginning key rule that one learns from RBTI is that what is food for one person may be poison to the next, because each person is biochemically unique. In order to properly feed and care for a person’s health, it is vital to understand the biochemical uniqueness determined through the no fad science of RBTI.

If you are interested in learning the science of RBTI it is now available to you in the new online video training through Advanced Ideals Institute. RBTI Level 1 video training is now live and ready for your registration and participation.

The Real Cause Of IBS & IBD Is Being Missed


Inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common gastrointestinal disorder in the U.S., affecting an estimated 30 million people. Patients with this condition suffer symptoms that can include painful bloating, constipation, diarrhea or an alternating pattern of both. Many patients try to avoid social interactions because they are embarrassed by their symptoms.

Similarly, an estimated 1.4 million Americans have Inflammatory Bowel Disease, or IBD, a chronic digestive disorder. About 30,000 new cases are diagnosed annually. Ulcerative colitis, one of the most common types of IBD, causes inflammation and ulcers in the top layers of the lining of the large intestine. Common symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, bleeding, fatigue, weight loss and loss of appetite. According to statistics, ulcerative colitis patients can be at increased risk of developing colorectal cancer.

From the RBTI Perspective IBS and IBD are really two variations on a theme. And many researchers are agreeing that IBS and IBD are interrelated diseases, noting that patients with IBD experience IBS-like symptoms when their IBD is in remission. A 3-year study found that patients diagnosed with IBS were 16.3 times more likely to be diagnosed with IBD during the study period. Serum markers associated with inflammation have also been found in patients with IBS. Some researchers have suggested that IBS is a type of low-grade inflammatory bowel disease.

What is amazing is that researchers are not even close to addressing the CAUSE of IBS/IBD, as far as RBTI is concerned. Newer research blames the overgrowth of micro organisms. For example, a Cedars-Sinai study[1] concludes that bacterial overgrowth is definitively linked to IBS. While another very recent study, from the same institution identified and characterized a large community of fungi inhabiting the large intestine as a key in IBD. Researchers admit that fungi have existed in the gut, but until now have never been studied as to what types, how many and whether they’re important in disease. Now, they claim to be seeing linkages to digestive disorders.

Which begs the critical question these researchers are obviously not asking. What is providing the free room and board for all these micro organisms to even exist in the quantities research has shown?

This is a most critical question. It is exactly like the question that horticultural researchers never ask regarding the cause of a disease that affects stone fruit trees known as bacterial gumosis or bacterial canker — also two variations on a theme just like IBS & IBD. According to horticultural scientists, bacterial gumosis and canker is caused by micro organisms getting into and affecting the cambium or growth layer where the sap flows under the outer bark of a stone fruit tree (e.g., peaches, cherries, apricots, plums). They thoroughly believe that bacteria (known as Pseudomonas) are the real cause because when they test the gumosis and canker contents they find an over growth of those micro organisms, when, in fact, the micro organisms are only the symptom. By believing that the cause is micro organisms, the so-called “cure” is to use anything that will get rid of the bacteria. In ISB & IBD that means the use of antibiotics will be becoming the treatment of choice to “cure” IBS and IBD based on the newest research. “This new study confirms what our findings with the antibiotic and our previous studies always led us to believe: Bacteria are key contributors to the cause of IBS. This clear evidence of the role bacteria play in the disease underscores our clinical trial findings, which show that antibiotics are a successful treatment for IBS.”

It is unbelievable and a gross shame that researchers remain so narrow in their interpretation of information, while at the same time totally believing they have found the cause—when, in fact, they are only looking at a symptom.

Yes, the digestive tract is certainly home to a very large number of micro-organisms. There is an estimated 100 trillion bacteria that call the gut home. In fact, microbes in the gut outnumber human cells in the body. Under healthy conditions most are necessary to aid in digesting food, producing necessary vitamins and suppressing the growth of harmful microorganisms. Others, under the wrong electrochemical conditions, are harmful to the body, contributing to illnesses such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and other IBS and IBD related conditions. Until orthodox researchers begin to understand what the real cause is behind all disease, even IBS & IBD, symptom treatments will continue to rule the day.

I want to be perfectly clear, real cause of IBS/IBD in the human and bacterial gumosis/canker in a fruit tree, however, has been truly revealed by the science and technology of Reams’ Biological Theory of Ionization (RBTI). You see, RBTI has domonstrated a deeper issue as the cause of the micro organism proliferation discovered in both IBS and IBD. The deeper issue is the foundational reserve mineral energy has been depleted to such an extent that free room and board are being supplied for the IBS & IBD organisms to proliferate unabated.

I hope this opened some eyes.

Thanks for stopping,

RBTI Insights — The Cause of All Dis-ease

According to horticultural scientists, bacterial gummosis and canker is caused by a microorganism getting into and affecting the cambium or growth layer where the sap flows under the outer bark of a stone fruit tree (e.g., peaches, cherries, apricots, plums).

You see, RBTI has demonstrated a deeper issue as the cause of the microorganism proliferation discovered in both IBS and IBD. The deeper issue is the real cause. The fundamental reserve mineral savings account has been depleted to such an extent that free room and board is being supplied for the IBS & IBD symptoms aggravating organisms to proliferate unabated. IBS & IBD, like all disease, is caused by a mineral deficiency and the overgrowth of problematic microorganisms is nothing more than the result of conditions being created that invite and favor the proliferation of the microorganisms researcher’s have found associated with IBS & IBD. In other words, the microorganisms are the symptom of an underlying mineral deficiency cause.

The cause of IBS & IBD, as defined by RBTI, is really the fundamental cause of all disease no matter how medical science labels it. Yes, Dr. Reams was probably one of the earliest researchers to reveal that all disease is caused by a lack of adequate and proper mineral in the diet. He found that the foods being commercially grown and processed for consumption by the public have less than 20 to 30 percent of the mineral necessary to sustain a long healthy life. Moreover, food mineral deficiencies begin with the soil upon which the food is grown. If the farmer or gardener is not attentive to supplying the full complement of minerals needed to grow their crops to the highest possible brix levels (i.e., nutrient density, as measured by a refractometer in brix units), those crops will only be contributing to the rampant sickness that we continue to experience around us daily.

The only way to be sure that you are getting the minerals that your body totally requires, from your diet, is to use mineral supplements. The only way to accurately know what minerals and vitamins are needed to help your body utilize these vital minerals is to “go by the numbers.” In this case the “numbers” refer to the RBTI urine and saliva test results. These test results provide the only reference point by which a diet and supplement program can be accurately and individually engineered and monitored for maximum health and wellbeing. In this new age of socialized medicine, RBTI is real health care at its best.

Real Liver Health and Cancer

New research shows us why liver health is so vital to preventing cancer.

Lithocholic acid (LCA), naturally produced in the liver during digestion, has been seriously underestimated. A study published in the journal Oncotarget shows that LCA can kill several types of cancer cells, such as those found in some brain tumors and breast cancer.

The research team, led by Concordia University, included scientists from McGill University and the Jewish General Hospital’s Lady Davis Institute in Montreal as well as the University of Saskatchewan. Previous research from this same team showed LCA extends the lifespan of aging yeast. This time, the team found LCA to be very selective in killing cancer cells while leaving normal cells unscathed.

“LCA doesn’t just kill individual cancer cells. It could also prevent the entire tumor from growing,” says senior author Vladimir Titorenko, a professor in the Department of Biology and Concordia University Research Chair in Genomics, Cell Biology and Aging.

What’s more, LCA prevents tumors from releasing substances that cause neighboring cancer cells to grow and proliferate. Titorenko says LCA is the only compound that targets cancer cells, which could translate into tumor-halting power.

“This is important for preventing cancer cells from spreading to other parts of the body,” he says, noting that unlike other anti-aging compounds, LCA stops cancer cell growth yet lets normal cells continue to grow.

Liver health is key according to Reams’ Biological Theory of Ionization (RBTI)

Aside from the brain, no organ in the human body has more responsibility for overall health than the liver. Liver health is vital to total body health because every other organ or tissue in the body depends on the liver to produce the vital basic building blocks needed by those organs and tissues to maintain optimum levels of health and function. In order for the liver to provide for the rest of the body’s systems, it has to be at its optimum function itself. Therefore, in order for LCA to be produced at the proper amounts during digestion, the liver must be functioning at its best.

Dr. Carey Reams discovered that there are three primary ingredients the liver must have available to properly perform all of its life dependent functions — water, oxygen and calcium. The liver is like a three-legged stool in its dependence on water, oxygen and calcium. If any one of these three items are deficient during the digestive process, the liver is unable then to fully maintain its vital support of the rest of the electrochemical needs of the human body, including the production of such enzymes as LCA. In other words, even if there is a sufficient supply of oxygen and calcium to the liver, a deficiency of water will interfere with the liver being able to use the available oxygen and calcium. Each item is like one leg of a three-legged stool. Even if one leg is missing, whether that item is either water, oxygen or calcium, the stool (liver) is unable to stand on its own.

Water needs are determined according to the weight. In other words, take your weight and divide by 2 and then call that amount ounces. For example, if a person weighed 160 pounds they would need 160 ÷ 2 = 80, or 80 ounces of water throughout their waking hours of the day. The best way to drink the 80 ounces is in increments of 4 ounces every half hour over about 10-12 hours of the day beginning at about 7-8 in the morning. If this example were to consume only 3 ounces every half hour, they would have to extend their water drinking for more hours of the day in order to get their needed ounces according to their weight. Though the liver functions 24 hours a day, its peak times of function are during the waking hours. This is why it is best to hydrate the liver with small amounts of water on hour and half-hour increments. By the way, the best water to be drinking is the purest and wettest water, which is steam distilled water. Since the minerals in water cannot be easily utilized by the body, steam distilled is ideal.

Oxygen needs are determined and regulated according to the carbohydrate number part of the RBTI urine and saliva test. The more the urine carbohydrate can be maintained between 1.0 and 2.0 brix on the refractometer, the better the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. The better the oxygen of the blood the better the brain and liver oxygen needs are being supplied.

As a nutrient mineral, calcium is required by the liver and the body more than any other mineral. Additionally, women, during child bearing years, need seven times greater quantity of calcium than men.

Calcium needs are revealed according to the urine pH part of the RBTI urine and saliva test. Reams classified nutritional calciums needed to feed the liver into two reaction groups. One, those that caused an acid (“cationic”) reaction in the digestion. Two, those that caused an alkaline (“anionic”) reaction in the digestion. In the acid reacting group there are: phosphate and sulfate calciums. In the alkaline reacting group there are: oxide, hydroxide and carbonate calciums, as well as tricalciums and dolomitic calciums.

The ideal urine and saliva pH is 6.40 as long as the rest of the RBTI test numbers are perfect as well. However, when the urine pH moves below 6.20 this would be an early indication that the liver was showing a true calcium deficiency needing calciums from the alkaline (“anionic”) group to help correct. On the other hand, when the urine pH begins to move above 6.60, this would then be the early sign that the body and the liver are experiencing an excess calcium issue, which is needing calciums from the acidic (“cationic”) group to help correct and lower the pH, while reducing the overall excess calcium condition.

The liver is unique because it is the only organ in the body that can fully regenerate itself even if 70-75% is lost. The liver is the largest gland in the human body. It makes up about 2.5% of body’s total weight. On average it can weigh from 3 to 3.5 pounds for a man and about 2.5 pounds for a women. In general, the liver performs more than 500 different functions, participating in the regulation of glucose (sugar) in the blood, accumulating nutrients—minerals (like calcium), vitamins, iron, glycogen, producing bile to help break down fats—and producing the anticancer substance Lithocholic acid.

Additionally, a primary function of the liver is as a cleansing filter. The liver has a vital ability to neutralize toxic byproducts of various metabolic reactions as well as destroying and removing harmful bacteria and their byproducts. In case of poisoning, drug overdoses and poor nutrition, the liver takes the main load in dealing with these issues as well. The liver rarely makes itself felt in the beginning of dis-ease. Usually the liver’s health has already been seriously compromised before symptoms are experienced.

RBTI is all about liver health being the key addressing the cause of any dis-ease. RBTI is about tailor making a diet according to the RBTI test result numbers to properly feed and care for the liver allowing the liver to feed and care for its manager—you!

Thanks for considering another RBTI Perspective.
