Dr. Richard Schulze: The Original Natural Health Revolutionary

Wisdom from one of the early pioneers of modern Natural Healing.

Don't Be A Wimp


Dear Dr. Schulze, You make it all sound so easy. Be a vegetarian, exercise half the day, be positive all the time and laugh at everything no matter what, and then to top it all off I need to spend half my life in the bathroom. Get Real! How about a program for the rest of us who live in the real world and have to work for a living? I think I am fairly healthy, but my wife is always quoting you like you are some god, and I have a family to support, a business to manage, and like I said, I live in the real world, not some healthy fairy land. By the way, I am also not perfect like you so I have desires to eat junk food on occasion and even drink and go to parties, so according to you this means I am conflicted and I can’t be healthy.

Dear Daniel,

The only reason I make it sound easy is that I have been following this program for 44 years, so it does come like second nature to me. But it's just a matter of getting used to it, and the more you follow the program, the easier it gets. For me, carrot and wheatgrass juice go down easier than Jack Daniels. I love walking, running, moving and beating up my heavy bag and rubber martial arts dummy. And, because I eat lots of fiber and take my HerbalMucilPlus every day in my morning SuperFood blender drink, well, my two bowel movements a day slide right out and only take about one minute each, if that.

So what I am saying is that the healthy life, is not harder, doesn't take longer, and is completely do-able for anyone—even if you work 16 hour days. It's just a matter of making it your routine and getting used to it.

By the way, ALL of my patients had important jobs, worked long hours, had careers and also had families to take care of, and they had no problem finding the time to eat right, get in some exercise and do a 5-Day Detox Program three or four times a year.

Daniel, I am sorry that your wife picks on you using me, that must be a little annoying, but I know it's just because she loves you and wants you around for many more years to come. I think your biggest problem is that you have developed a sour attitude about upgrading to a healthier lifestyle. I understand. No one wants to be nagged and pushed into anything, especially health. So that's probably why you sound a little pissed off.

BUT… Don't start looking for excuses to wimp out by making it sound like my programs are too difficult and time consuming for the average person to do. You are really starting to sound like a BIG WHINING PUSSY!

Heck, my BLOG a few weeks ago was about a 9-YEAR-OLD GIRL who dissolved her bladder tumor doing my 5-Day KIDNEY Detox when she was only 8 years old. (see Bladder Tumor Gone.) She would knock back her Detox Tonic and ask, “What's the big deal?”

And let me tell you about this “real world” that you keep referring to… In this real world that both you and I live in, right past the Dunkin Donuts and the Starbucks, right before the Wendy's Burgers and Dairy Queen, is a juice bar, a health food store, and a few restaurants that have many tasty vegan entrées, but YOU can't see them because you are filled with so much of your own bullshit about what you can't do, that it's blinding you.

As far as you being conflicted, I have news for you brother—we are all conflicted! You just have to decide what you want out of life, what reality you want to create and what level of participation and health you are up for, and then follow the program that will make that happen.

I have a very loud inner voice, a very sharp focus and a powerful drive. So most of the time I stay on a strict path—physically, emotionally and spiritually—to be the healthiest person I can. Sure, I party like a rock star, usually it is with healthy things, and rarely… it's not! But my focus and drive always bring me back to my prime directive—to live long and prosper! But yes, even the great Dr. Schulze has a few little voices inside that want to steer me onto a different path.

The INNER CHILD inside me wants SUGAR! It wants me to follow the Zone Diet. I want SUGAR, who doesn't? I want to eat Boston cream pie, Snickers bars and Häagen-Dazs ice cream for lunch. Why not? It tastes great! After all, all of this is in the Zone Diet book. (No wonder it sold millions of copies). Sometimes my inner child throws a tantrum and wins.

The YOUNG HIPPIE inside me wants to save the world, never harm an animal and be a total vegan. Heck, I don't even want to kill bugs, or even herbs, plants or microscopic life. I'm a Jain, a Breathairian, but if I follow this Breathairian program, I'm dead too. But sometimes the young hippie protests and wins.

The PRIMAL MAN inside me wants to kill everything that moves around me. Kill it, grill it and eat it! Heck, I'll even eat it raw! I'll eat YOU. Better watch your back if I get hungry! And then after I'd kill and eat my food, I'd want to have sex, lots of intense sex. Sometimes the primal man kicks my ass and wins (at least the sex part).

The COUCH POTATO in me will agree to anything, as long as I don't have to move, EVER. I just want to sit, lie, nap, doze off and sleep. Watching great movies is wonderful, so are La-Z-Boy reclining chairs and sofas. I hate moving any part of my body. Sometimes the couch potato sedates and hypnotizes me, and wins.

But 99% of the time, I WIN! Because the DOCTOR in me KNOWS THIS… I know that life is a limited time offer, and when it's up you can't BUY, BEG or STEAL another minute.

Maybe where we go next, after this life, is better, maybe it's not. Maybe it's nothing, forever. I have my own beliefs. But I do know that whether you are religious, spiritual or atheist, the best program is to recognize that this life is an awesome and magical gift, and it is our job to respect that, to live it well, and live it as best as we can for as long as we can. What could possibly be more reverent and spiritual than taking the best care we can of our body, mind and spirit.

This is the biggest “high five” to God!

I have been at death's door, and then held my patients' hands while they were at death's door, too. I watched many of them stare death right in the face and spit in it, and grab a hold of another 20 or 30 years. I watched as others crossed over. If I saw one thing, it is that in your final hours, you would do anything for a few more hours, days, months or years. I also saw lots of regrets about not taking better care of this vehicle we call a body, and taking our health for granted.

Life is a game and the rules are simple. You can end it, cut it short, ignore it, and even extend it. If you want to win this game we call life, it's a balance between getting the most Quantity (or longevity) along with getting the most Quality that you possibly can.

And most important, ALL of us usually end up in the same place. A disease ends up slapping us right in the face, knocks us right on our ass and life as we knew it, IS OVER!

It is usually at this time that EVERYONE is willing to do ANYTHING, to buy a little more time, and this is where I come in.

What I Have Found Is THIS… If you follow my path, my suggested lifestyle and my Natural and Herbal programs, you will increase the Quality of your life. You will feel better most of the time, have more energy and have more fun! You will also increase the Quantity of your life and live longer.

But maybe the best benefit is that you will know how to do everything, you will be used to the food program, the movement program, the Detoxification programs, the Emotional and Spiritual programs. So when disease and breakdown does eventually come a knockin' at your door and kicks your ass, well, it's easy to turn it around and get healthy because you already know all the programs; you know the lifestyle. All you have to do is turn up the intensity and you will be able to buy more time.

There is nothing more difficult than a 50, 60 or 70 year old person, who has let their inferior, health-destroying inner voice rule their life, and then, in their senior years, try to change everything in their life to a new strange lifestyle. People like this who attempt to make last ditch “Hail Mary” passes in the final hours, well, this desperate attempt is usually torturous and rarely successful.

The Bottom Line You are not anything special, my friend. We all have inner voices that will lead us to sugar, laziness, junk food, alcohol, whatever. What is important is that at least Monday through Friday you stay on a super-healthy lifestyle. Unless you are diseased, that's good enough for me, and what you do on Saturday night, well, what happens on Saturday night stays on Saturday night. I don't want to know about it. Recover on Sunday and get back on to your healthy lifestyle by Monday morning. My patients that did this, and did a 5-Day Detox Program three or four times a year, rarely got sick. There are no hard, fast rules, except one: What you get will be a direct reflection of what you are willing to do.

So quit your bullshit, your excuses, your whining and go find the health food store and the juice bar. Heck, even Wal-Mart sells fresh juice—it's just down the next isle past the Pepsi.
