Why MOST Herbal Formulas Won't Work!
Dr. Richard Schulze, Master Herbalist & Naturopathic Physician

When I first started my own healing journey in the 1960's, one of my first great SHOCKS was that MOST Health Products did NOT work! This included ALL of the Herbal Formulas, that I tried. I was constantly AMAZED at the WEAKNESS of these "so-called" INTENSE Herbal Formulas, that were supposed to change my life. They didn't! I would take them diligently and NOTHING would happen! Out of frustration, and my own illness, I remember taking 20 to 100 times the dosages, the WHOLE bottle, and there was still little or NO effect! In order to get myself WELL from a Terminal Heart Disease, I had to break ALL of the rules and make it up as I went. Because I BROKE the rules, I got WELL!

In the 1970's, I started helping others get WELL and opened up my own Clinic. From the early days of my Clinical Practice, I was especially interested in helping people with SERIOUS ILLNESS and Degenerative Diseases! Almost ALL of the other Graduates from the various institutes, that I had attended worked MAINLY on young, healthy People, who wanted to get a little bit healthier, but I was OBSESSED with Emergency Treatment and the Sick and Dying! The same USELESS Herbal Formulas, that had FAILED me years before were now FAILING to HELP any of my Patients. They thought they were doing something WRONG and this is why they were coming to see me. I was forced to IMPROVE upon the CRUDE Formulas, that I had developed to heal myself and also create NEW Formulas that worked! Why were ALL of the Herbal Formulas USELESS? Why didn't they WORK? As far as I could see, there were 3 MAIN reasons for this.

Reason #1: Antique Formulas

MANY of the Herbal Formulas available were designed in the middle-to-late 1800's, and some even earlier. The 1800's were very DIFFERENT times. Today, we have Junk Food Restaurants on EVERY corner, get LESS Exercise and have MORE STRESS, than probably ever before in History! What it took to STIMULATE and CLEANSE Wyatt Earp and Buffalo Bill 150 years ago doesn't work today! Even some of the MORE modern Herbal Formulas available were still designed in the 1940's or l950's. This is still over 60 years ago, when Herbs were looked at as a cute little hobby to ALLEVIATE Headaches and TIRED Feet, NOT CURE LIFE-THREATENING disease! Many other Modern Formulas are just remakes of these Ancient Formulas; the Herbs are just shuffled and a so-called NEW Formula is dealt. These Formulas just don't work!

Reason #2: Weak Formulas, Wimpy Dosages, Poor Manufacturing and Poor Quality Herbs

MOST modern American Natural Healers and Herbalists have been educated and grew up in a HOSTILE Legal and Political Environment! Recent History reveals that the AMA and other Organizations have been on a Witch-Hunt for practicing Herbalists and have jailed MANY! Out of fear, most Herbalists and Manufacturers want to make sure that NO ONE ever gets a STRONG Action or has ANY REACTIONS with their Products, NOT even a Cleansing Reaction! They feel it's far SAFER to make Products that have little or NO Effect! Like Medical Doctors today, Treatment and Therapy parameters are designed by the Hospital Legal Departments to MINIMIZE Financial Repercussions and Malpractice Law-Suits, and NOT always what is BEST for the Patient!

One way these Herbal Manufacturers assure their SAFETY, and NOT your Health, is to design Formulas with very SMALL Amounts of the POTENT Herbs, or NONE at ALL! Then, to be really SAFE, they suggest a dosage that is so LOW, that it's USELESS! They don't want to take ANY risks! To further WEAKEN any potency, MANY Manufacturers have ABANDONED the TRIED-and-TRUE Methods of old Herbalists, and are NOW using QUICK Extraction Processes, High-Tech (high heat) Machinery, Freeze-Dried Herbs, while ignoring the Moons and Seasons, mostly to make a QUICK Buck! The result, most Herbal Products, that I see today are WORTHLESS junk! Many manufacturers are MORE concerned that their Product tastes GOOD or has a great-looking label than with whether you will get WELL using it! I also see labels loaded with sophisticated Laboratory-Testing Results for Potency, trying to convince you that the COLORLESS, TASTELESS and ODORLESS Water inside will actually benefit you! How STUPID do they think we are?

One of the WORST aspects of MANY Herbal Formulas today is the POOR quality of Herbs used. The vast majority of Herbal Products are made from Herbs grown OUTSIDE of the US. There is only ONE reason for this; they are CHEAP! Herbs brought in from India, China, Egypt, Mexico or Eastern Europe cost literally pennies a pound. I NEVER used these POOR Quality Herbs in my Clinic! I ALWAYS used American Organically-Grown and Wild-Crafted Herbs, that can cost OVER 20 times as much! I have visited these countries and found FILTHY, disgusting growing conditions, TOXIC pollution and OUT-OF-CONTROL use of Pesticides and Insecticides! When we travel to these Countries, we don't drink the Water and don't even eat the Food, so then why would we want to use Herbs grown there?

In the last ten years, there have been numerous People getting SICK, after using FAMOUS Herbal Formulas, because the Herbs were contaminated with Human Fecal Waste! If this isn't BAD enough, MOST of these CONTAMINATED Herbs, when brought into the United States, are gassed with Ethylene Oxide, an Antibacterial Gas that is known to cause CANCER and also cause Mutations in Unborn Children! In fact, the VAST Majority of Organic Herbs are even sterilized with this Gas, because the Manufacturers are SCARED to use UNSTERILIZED Herbs. In the last few years, I have done much to EXPOSE this CORRUPTION and I have been attacked by ALMOST EVERYONE in the Herb Industry, even by my so-called Friends! Even though they are WELL-AWARE of the PROBLEMS, I have affected their Income and they are plenty MAD! Even the ones, who haven't attacked me won't go on record to EXPOSE the Industry or speak the TRUTH! Most of my Colleagues, out of FEAR of PROSECUTION, write Books and Magazine Articles, gather at Meetings of their Guilds, run Schools and teach, but RARELY have ever worked with a Patient. It is ILLEGAL for an American Herbalist to run a Clinic and to CURE patients from ILLNESS and DISEASE, using American Herbs. This leads to the 3rd reason why MOST Herbal Formulas don't work.

Reason #3: Theory, NOT Practical, Clinical Experience

Why is it that MOST Modern Herbal Formulas, designed by MANY of my Colleagues, don't work? As I walk down the isles of modern day Health Food Stores, I see hundreds of Herbal Products and recognize MANY of the Names on the Bottles. MANY are my Students and MANY are Friends, but FEW of these Armchair Herbalists ever ran a Clinic or would know the difference between a Heart Attack and Indigestion! What they don't tell you on the Bottle is that they developed these Formulas after COUNTLESS Hours of Research reading Books and searching Computer Databases, but they have had NO Clinical Results or CURES! You may be the FIRST Human to ever put these Formulas in your Mouth. A few of their Herbal Hypothesis are GOOD, and in years, probably decades, some might prove to be IMPORTANT Discoveries! But I also know that MOST of these Formulas will be tossed in the Garbage, where they BELONG!

Running my clinic, I learned very quickly what it takes to get people WELL. Theories do NOT, hypothesis do NOT, but QUALITY Herbs, POTENT Formulas and LARGE Dosages DO get people WELL!! My Formulas, Dosages and Programs are the result of 10+ years of HEALING myself and an additional 20+ years of Clinical Experience. THEY DO WORK!!
