Getting people to let go of their precious prison of thinking, and return to their infinite True Nature, is a seeming impossibility — only seeming! — which is truly great, on every level, both for the individual and for this whole suffering world. It’s what gets me out of bed every day, against the flow of gloomy news.

The Supps You Need


People often ask me for advice about health and supplements. I’m not qualified to give any sort of exert or authoritative advice. But there are a few things that are absolute “musts” for a sound mind and body, which I do ingest every day. Perhaps one day I will gather all of what I have learned in one video or essay, if just to share what works for me, even if it is not definitive.

Basically, in a nutshell, in addition to my own foundational regimen, for the last year and a half I rely on the regimen established by Dr. Alberto Villoldo, of the Four Winds Society.

These are among the main supplements that I take, every day, in order to combat toxins in the brain and body. And you should take these, too.
