Hypoglycemia

My compliments for being “right on” about so many health maxims, e.g., hard flour, fruit, juices and other no-nos. I now have no symptoms of hypoglycemia and I make out nicely on two meals a day. I had never given this much thought until I reread your handout sheet.

I’d like to ask your advice on my liver problem again. I’m enclosing a copy of a questionnaire completed recently by a naturopath in D.C. (the original questionnaire was mailed to an Ayurvedic hospital in Kerala, but they have yet to respond).

If you recall, you once gave me an aggressive liver stimulant formula of: boldo leaves, fringe tree bark, wild yam root, coriander seeds and marshmallow root. It used to make me ill but now causes little discomfort or further yellowing to the skin. Later, you advised me as to the following herbs which do not stimulate bile production: chamomile, gentian root, rosemary, dandelion root and one or two I can’t recall.

I can’t say the above herbs or formula have been successful in specifically liquefying gallstones, even when I’ve taken the formula ten days prior to a flush.* I must admit my use of the milder herbs individually, was not as measured.

Therefore I’ve enclosed a blank questionnaire, self-addressed stamped envelope and ten-dollar note for you. I would be grateful if you would complete and return the questionnaire as soon as you can.

With all best wishes in all of your studies, your practice and your battle with the AMA.

* Paul, I’ve slowed down on these liver/g.b. flushes because I never seemed to get down to the bottom of the supply. I believe that the stones must be in endless supply. Or perhaps the situation is similar to doing an intestinal cleanser and then eating this or that unknowingly which clogs the walls of the intestines almost overnight. ??


A year and six months ago I had some symptoms which were so severe that I had to go to the ER. I was sent to the chest pain center, they thought I was having a heart attack. I had heart palpitations, some dizziness, light-headedness, shortness of breath, and pressure in my chest. I was checked out, my heart was OK, and I was sent home. The symptoms continued. My doctor was mystified. He prescribed tranquilizers. I didn’t like the way they made me feel and they didn’t address the symptoms, but at least I could sleep.

Then I asked a friend if she knew a good herbalist. I thought that I could get something natural to calm my symptoms. She referred me to Paul Olko. He asked me some questions; he listened to me. He said he thought I had hypoglycemia and recommended a special diet. I followed the diet and immediately felt better. It took a couple of months, but I got off the tranquilizers and now I have more energy than ever. I feel great, and I’ve learned how to manage my blood sugar. I lost 30 pounds, and friends say I look great. I had tried to lose weight for many years. I am ever so grateful to Paul. I continue to see him periodically for those wonderful Chinese massages and to check-in about my health. Lisa is also very supportive, and runs the herb shop where I get supplements. It’s a great service. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is serious about getting healthy without drugs.
