      I’m now over 78 years old. It seems to me that our life-stile has a lot to do with the condition of our body as we get older. During my very young years I had continuously chances to exercise, which included running, swimming, and walking. For a long time our family didn’t have a car and I was quite active in sports clubs. After I was over 50 years old, I started to notice that the blood circulation in the lower parts of my legs was restricted. I had an office job and much of my day included standing up without much movement. Naturally, some of the impurities in the blood started to settle out in the lower parts of the legs. When I read in Jon Barron’s reports how his pHi-Zymes (a proteolytic enzyme) functioned to clean out the blood, I knew right away: this will be the best way to clean out my blood vessels for the entire body. For several years I’m using now 2 pHi-Zymes every day between meals, plus one just before bedtime, and I developed into a very happy customer. Thank you very much, Jon Barron, all your Baseline Nutritionals products work so well for me – I couldn’t do without them.

  5. People have to stop behaving
    People have to stop behaving like sheep, I have just ordered Chaparral based on this info, I gave my own mind and take responsibility for my own health. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, a month before this I watched a program called ‘forbidden cures for cancer’ and i transcribed it for my blog as the cures were fascinated and of course banned by the medical profession and the cancer research groups!! then a month later BAM a check up of some lumps that I had turned out to be just hormonal but they found another lump elsewhere and it was cancerous. I had surgery and I refused radiotherapy and hormone treatment because the effects of both and they tried to talk me into removing all lymph nodes which I refused the surgeon permission. All of this to the Surgeons and the consultants utter amazement. I took all natural products after surgery including essiac tea. After 3 months they were amazed that I was doing fine and they told me to come back in 6 months for a check up, had a blood test everything was fine, had a little scare on the mammogram in that they thought I had a lump on my other breast but was a false alarm, and told me to come back in a year. I still take essiac. But I have psoriasis and there are good people who have linked psoriasis with cancer – a fungus type disease. I aslo found that candida was found in all patients who had passed from cancer this was a study which was carried out and still ignored by the medical profession.
    No one ever asked me about my life style or diet in any consultation that I attended and I think this would reveal some amazing results. I try to stay away from fungus foods and commercial bread as it is high in yeast and I stay away from things that have yeast in it. Knowledge is most definitely power and we as a human race should stop being brainwashed into believing mainstream hype and do our own research. lets prove Einstein wrong and use all of our brain.

  7. Mr. Barron, I am an
    Mr. Barron, I am an allopathic med student in the States. I'd like to take this article more seriously, however (regarding the section on chaparral, which is the only one I read)…. 1) Where is this article by Dr. Clark Watt et al? Can't find it anywhere. Why do you not cite it directly? 2) You cite ONE JAMA article, that is inaccessible to the public in its entirety, so I cannot verify that the 60yo patient in question was also taking the other potentially hepatotoxic medications (until I go to school and look it up). Why don't you quote the relevant parts in your article? 3) Where are the publications from the 70's and 80's studies that found no association between chaparral use and hepatotoxicity? I did find these articles from the 2000's; I can't access them in their entirety either, but the abstracts alone make a pretty strong case: http://archsurg.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=395286 http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00365520410007926 Of course they cite the articles from the 90's; all publications cite relevant past articles as references. The second article seems quite specific about how it was chaparral in particular that seemed to cause the problem (in that it apparently resolved after ceasing to ingest specifically chaparral…). I'm not a big fan of the FDA or Big Pharma, but I'm also not a fan of shoddy science and manipulating facts to sell products to people with no scientific background (who are thus less able to objectively analyze various claims). The ability to adeptly interpret scientific data is a learned skill that requires a sufficient base of knowledge. It sucks, but that's the way it is. Too much of anything is bad; even oxygen. At the right dose, it can be beneficial. Thus I don't totally write off your claims; but it seems to me you may be doing a bit of twisting facts to suit your own agenda. I hope you will prove me incorrect. I challenge you to step up your game, sir.

    • We forwarded your question to
      We forwarded your question to Jon Barron, and were able to catch him while participating in a series of meetings on the other side of the country. He responded as follows:

      Dear S. Williams:

      I understand the intent of your question, but the specifics are confusing. You claim that the cited studies are inaccessible to the public, but as a medical student, you would have free access to all such studies in your school library. But that said, any of these studies are available to anyone from the public willing to pay on average about $30 per article – which is what I do to read them. And of course, as you would be well aware, I cannot then publish articles in their entirety to support my quotations from them, as that would be a violation of copyright. Like everyone else, I am obligated to restrict my references to citations, pointing in most cases to abstracts. And if nothing else, you are holding my article to a far higher standard than any article published in any medical journal, as they all rely on citations that point to abstracts…if they point to anything at all.

      Incidentally, the Gordon study that you want to see and that refers to the hepatoxic drugs used by the patient is actually available in its entirety from JAMA (I have provided a link below.) It’s easily found on the JAMA website.

      As to the JAMA article you cite below as pretty convincing, you stopped reading too soon. The link you provided opens the entire article, not just an abstract.  If you check the citations at the bottom used to support the claims against chaparral, you will find they are all the old studies I mentioned in my original article, including the Gordon article—ah yes, always the Gordon study. Nothing new here. Just a repetition of the same previously discredited studies.

      Incidentally, instead of citing the studies from the 70’s and 80’s, I referenced below a more recent study, one subsequent to cited studies in the JAMA article you referenced and that points out their flaws.

      With that said, let me elaborate on the history behind chaparral.

      Dietary supplements containing Larrea tridentata, as a raw herbal ingredient, were the subject of scrutiny for a brief period in the mid-1990s. The cause of this concern was thoroughly investigated, and no official regulatory action was initiated. This scrutiny was initiated by the published anecdotal case mentioned above (Gordon 1995), whereby severe liver toxicity in an elderly patient was supposedly related to the consumption of raw chaparral herb. Although this case was published, it has been widely scrutinized as an attack against the herbal industry since major facts of the case, especially the fact that the patient had been taking many prescription drugs, including several prescription drugs that were well known to cause severe liver damage, were buried without note within the report, and the findings as a whole did not support the cause and effect conclusion that chaparral was responsible. When the report was subsequently published by Gordon, the hepatoxic drugs diltiazem hydrochloride, atenolol, and acetaminophen were in fact listed in the first paragraph – although they were subsequently dismissed as a possible cause of the liver damage because they didn’t fit the “clinical and histological features” to support such a diagnosis. But neither did chaparral, and yet it was afforded the singular honor of being blamed in the report.

      During this period of investigation by the FDA, the major herbal products associations, the National Nutritional Foods Association and the American Herbal Products Association asked their members to institute a voluntary moratorium on the sale of chaparral-containing products. The American Herbal Products Association also cooperated with the FDA in their investigation and commissioned a panel to perform a medical review of the four initial cases of hepatotoxicity reported by FDA, allegedly associated with chaparral ingestion – including the case mentioned above. This investigative panel was headed by Dr. Clark Watts M.D., J.D., of the law firm, Ford and Ferraro (Austin, TX), and included, Stephen Schenker, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology and Chief, Department of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, The University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio; Atilla Ertan, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Associate Chief, Gastroenterology Division, Department of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston; and Boris Yoffe, M.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine and Molecular Virology, Hepatitis Research Laboratory, Baylor College of Medicine.

      After reviewing the case reports, three physicians concluded that the reported toxicity was due to idiosyncratic reactions in persons with pre-existing liver conditions. To quote from the report published in September of 1994, "In summary, this review did not reveal evidence that Chaparral is inherently hepatotoxic.”  Shortly afterwards, AHPA, which had voluntarily withdrawn chaparral from the U.S. market pending the results of the medical review, released chaparral for sale, with the provision that chaparral products intended for internal use carry an informational label statement.

      Note: There is still a prevalent misconception that the FDA banned chaparral. In fact, the FDA has never banned any products containing this herb. Let me repeat: the FDA has never banned any products containing this herb.



      The citation for the Watts Report is: <Watts, C. “Final Report to the American Herbal Products Association.” Special Counsel, Ford and Ferraro, LLP, Austin, TX. 6 Sept 1994.>. Unfortunately, there do not appear to be any internet accessible copies available at this time.

      The Gordon study can be found in its entirety in the Journal of the American Medical Association. <Dafna W. Gordon, MD; Gayle Rosenthal, MD; John Hart, MD; et al. "Chaparral Ingestion The Broadening Spectrum of Liver Injury Caused by Herbal Medications." JAMA. 1995;273:489-490. http://jama.jamanetwork.com/data/Journals/JAMA/9346/jama_273_6_038.pdf&gt;

      And In 2001, a retrospective clinical study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found no evidence of liver toxicity from the use of low dose chaparral. It is available in its entirety at: <SILENA HERON, N.D., and ERIC YARNELL, N.D.

      Although it is wise to be skeptical, to a point, it is even wiser to recognize when your beliefs fall in-line with a programmed way of thinking. I was raised in a western medical family and was heading down that path myself, until I figured out what I truly wanted to do in regards to healing and chose a path that would really allow me the freedom to do just that.

      I still believe in “right tool for the right job,” but after reading your attack on Jon, not to say he’s infallible and unbiased, I found your inability to recognize that the biggest pile of junk science comes from your very own allopathic medicine! Wake up and stop drinking the kool-aid, you will be a far bigger service to your Patients if you stop believing you have all the answers.

  13. I have Hep C and stage 2
    I have Hep C and stage 2 cirrhosis and have been taking a lot of herbal supplements. The past 3 years have been really sick, all the usual symptom’s, bloating in the tummy, along with pain in the tummy, swelling in the feet, legs and hands, horrible brain fog, and depression. To the point that it took everything I had to get up and go to work. Naturally the Doctor told me I shouldn’t be sick. I have been taking all the natural herbs that is recommended for this diagnosis and this year have been feeling much better, to the point that I am actually cooking, sewing and doing things I enjoy again. I have refused their interferon medication that is not that much of a chance of a cure. It will be my last resort. But went to have my blood drawn thinking that all my numbers would be better, to my shock they were worse. My viral load has doubled in 2 years. I want to know if I need a blood cleanse. Just this year I have started taking yellow dock along with burdock, dandelion root, cumin, there are a few more in there. I am now wondering if I should look into a blood cleanse if that would help a great deal?

All I AM GETTING FROM MY DOCTOR IS INCREASED DOSAGE each time I go to see him. Oh yes I’m in my 50’s.

    Very interesting article. I have been taking the proteolytic enzymes recommended in another article for almost 6 weeks and have noticed positive results regarding inflammation and seen long term swelling in my knee go away completely. Also dark circles under the eye are much less apparent for some reason despite not always getting good sleep. Will be getting my fibrin checked soon and hope to see normal values.

    As far as this herbal formula goes: I have been avoiding any estrogenic compounds while going through peri and menopause, (plastics,chemicals and soy for the most part) due to a history of breast cancer in my family. I also have experienced some estrogen dominance, and through and estrogen metabolizing test found that my liver was not doing a good job metabolizing bad estrogens. For this I take DIM and make cruciferous veggies a part of my diet.

    That being said are these herbal estrogens or phytoestrogens a problem for the estrogen dominant? Also I plan to take 2 weeks off the Phi-zymes soon. Should the herbal supplement be taken with the proteolytic enzymes or during a break from them. I don’t like to take too many things at once just in case it’s too much. Thanks for any help with this.

      It’s interesting how smoking gets blamed for lung cancer when other countries such as Greece have a higher population of smokers yet have lower rates of cancer. Could it be the added ingredients to the tobacco? Are USA brands different than European brands? I don’t advocate smoking but one has to wonder about the campaign to get everyone to quit. Is it because the government loves it’s citizens so much?

    • It doesn’t go bad. The

      It doesn’t go bad. The alcohol preserves it. But it does lose potency over time. With a 2008 expiration date, that’s probably pushing it in terms of how effective the formula still is. It’s probably best to get a new bottle…and don’t wait so long to use it next time.

  21. I found your article
    I found your article extremely interesting. I am curious about one thing though. I apologize if this was mentioned or covered in another article; I didn’t find a reference to it.
    Would you able to provide any insight or point me to any references which have delved into the potential synergistic effects of combing the herbs you list in a single “cocktail” of herbs? By the same science you mention in order to draw attention to the fact that active ingredient isolates used in studies are possibly less safe that the whole herb compounds I would venture that there are likely to be a number of positive or negative effects linked to synergistic effects between the herbs extracts used in combination with one another. Any help/guidance would be appreciated.

    • Not all estrogens are the

      Not all estrogens are the same. Most phytoestrogens actually protect against estrogen dominance. They are low level estrogens that fill receptor sites in the human body so that they are no longer available to much more powerful estrogens such as estrone, estradiol, and petroleum based  xenoestrogens. And, as you read in the article, studies confirm that the phytoestrogens you are concerned about actually protect against breast cancer.

  22. You’re making an invalid

    You’re making an invalid comparison. In the same way, that mixing greens and vegetables in a salad is very different from mixing pharmaceutical drugs derived from those same  plants. No one would think twice about adding another vegetable to their mixed salad, whereas they would be well advised to in the case of adding another drug to the five or six pills they might already be taking.  Pharmaceutical drugs and herbs, although both capable of medicinal effect, are very different animals. Are there potential problems with mixing foods? Absolutely! But we’re talking about things like increased flatulence or indigestion vs death if you mix the wrong drugs.

          Jon Barron’s formulas are not designed for children, although some people have successfully used some of them with children. In general, the dosage recommended on the labels is for a 150 lb adult. When parents have used the formulas with children, they have adjusted accordingly. A 75 lb child gets a half dose. A 30 lb child gets a 1/5 dose. Etc. The bottom line is that before using any supplement with a child, check with your pediatrician.
