Q & A with Dr. Hull

Mandatory Swine Flu Shot

Q: Dr. Hull - you did a hair analysis for me a few years back, and now I would be most interested in knowing your opinion about the swine flu vaccine. It has now become mandatory for healthcare workers in New York to have the vaccine -- even those (like me) who do not have regular access to patients. I am against having it, as I am against all flu vaccines.
Thank you.

A: I am against it, too, for many reasons. Primarily, it should remain one's individual RIGHT to decide for him or herself if they choose to be vaccinated. To blame an "epidemic" on healthy Americans who choose to use alternative methodologies to "prevent" disease, is a bunch of tosh. This is a scare tactic, and the spread of many diseases, such as the flu, can be prevented by implementing a variety of simple practices. I would love to see massive public programs teaching how to prevent disease by adopting better health habits; by supplementing with extra antioxidants, such as vitamin C, and a multivitamin; by allowing school children to wash their hands more often; and by having wet-wipes available at public stores and public restrooms.

If you have had a reaction to any of the vaccines in the past, and have had a heavy metal toxic load in the past (hence, your hair analysis results) in which this vaccine can react, or any cysts of any form, or ANY health issue that has caused you concern in the past, I would use these as an excuse to opt out based on your "past history of reactions."

I suggest saline washes in the nose and eyes (1 tsp sea salt dissolved in 1-cup warm water sniffed up one nostril at a time), hydrogen peroxide flushes for your ears, and taking an antioxidant and extra vitamin C, and maybe an adrenal support (one bottle or two), to PREVENT your body from catching any form of the flu. This works for me every season.

If they demand that you take this shot to keep your job, then YOU DEMAND to take it in 2 - 1/2 dose shots, 2-weeks apart to help your body process it safely. If they deny this, then we are all in trouble!!

I hope this helps and that you are doing well. Good luck with this.

Phenylalanine Concerns With Severe Diarrhea

Q: I have been given Provelite powder to take for diarrhea and it works, but my concern is it contains 14.1 mg phenylalanine per 5.5 gram dose. The packet states: "cholestyramine - 4 grams of anhydrous choles. resin in 5.5 grams of powder."

I am a little scared now, but at the same time I am not "running" or missing the toilet in time so to not mess up my clothes as I have done for 20 years. I hate aspartame, and it appears to be in this. I have read all about this med, and am so upset.

What can I do otherwise? I am so happy to be able to go out and shop, have lunch with friends, go to a movie, and not have the diarrhea problem. What can I take that would do the same thing without all the "garbage" in it? I have had a colonoscopy and all is well. No IBS in the findings nor what is causing this. I think it is all because of having my gallbladder taken out in 1976, and there is too much bile in the intestine. Thank you for listening ... hope to hear from you.

A: Oh my. Well, I don't normally give nutrition advice over the Internet for people who are not my clients because everyone has different issues and causes for their health symptoms. I like to KNOW what underpinnings are going on, but this is very a straightforward problem and a common recommendation.

The place everyone must begin with bile issues is follows: (try this for 1-week and see if it improves your situation.)

  1. Cancel all outings for the week and give your body 100% attention.

  2. Try a liver cleanse of choice to remove the bile that has backed up. Unless your eating habits change, or nutritional programs are started immediately after the gall bladder is removed (to keep the bile flushing), the bile simply builds up within the scar tissue remaining, and problems such as this result.

  3. Do a very gentle colon cleanse. Even though diarrhea is chronic for you, your colon needs to cleanse the bile. Again, give this one week.

  4. Take acidophilus 5-7 times a week in the morning AND at night FOREVER, both times on an empty tummy. You can buy liquid flavored acidophilus with strawberry, and it tastes great right out of the bottle.

This should make a difference within the week. And remember, NO aspartame or other food chemicals, no processed FATS, and eat mostly raw and natural foods.

You might want to order my book The Richardson Cancer Prevention Diet - it teaches you how to use the right foods to prevent various health issues like this. The book is for all health issues, not just preventing cancer. It's a great book and one of my favorites!

Let us know your progress, but give this one-week to begin. After that week, you'll know if you have hit the bull's eye.

The best in health,
Janet Hull
