The Hidden Polarities of Nature

by Margaret K. Chaney


CHAPTER 8:  Medical Polarities

The division of people into two metabolic sets has major medical implications.  I tread lightly here and include the standard disclaimers.  I give no medical advice nor should it be taken as such.  These observations may sensitize you to symptoms and coincidences you might not have noticed before but they can be professionally evaluated only by a licensed medical practitioner for diagnosis and prescription.

However, the quality of medical care you receive is based on the data you provide, and the concepts introduced in this book could be most helpful in that area, allowing you to work cooperatively with a sympathetic doctor.  Beyond that, what you can do in the way of self-treatment and therapy is limited only by your desire and determination.

Conventionally, we are expected to submit to blood tests, urine analysis, x-rays, and electrocardiograms.  These tests are inconvenient at best -- expensive, embarrassing and slow.  At worst, they involve pain, bruises, collapsed veins, barium distress, excessive radiation and other risks.  Quite often the system most quickly and easily available to monitor symptoms of malaise could be muscle-function testing.  Muscles are as much involved in the full functioning of our bodies as blood, urine, or electrical impulses.  Muscles can be trusted to carry valuable information about our present state and do so without discomfort or delay.

Since medicines and combinations of medicines fall into REDLIST and GREENLIST categories, the answer to the riddle of how one person can benefit from medicine that is devastating to another becomes obvious.  Those who should most appreciate this are doctors themselves, whose first pledge is "Do no harm."  No doctor would dream of developing pregnancy or prostate statistics from the general population.  They would focus the pregnancy treatments on women only, and the prostate treatments on men only.  If a doctor took into account a person's REDLIST or GREENLIST makeup, he or she could adjust prescriptions far more efficiently.

One of the major pharmaceutical companies has gone public with the knowledge the wonderful new drugs are effective for only about half of the people with the specific symptoms being treated.  Their solution is to do major research into the receptors of the cells and, in the meantime, remove the drugs from the market.  Their research is valuable and will probably be definitive, but it is sure to result in tests that are both slow and expensive.  My original suspicions about the drug polarities arose from seeing friends rummage through their purses on social occasions and come up with bottles of medicine.  As they tested each other (since I refused to get between them and any medical advice).   I found it striking that if a drug tested negatively, the patient almost invariably confessed, "I've already stopped taking that one."  The human body's acuity is far greater than we commonly recognize.

My testing has included patent medicines, prescription drugs, narcotics, and the synthetic narcotics used for pain control in terminal cancer.  Medicines derived from animal, vegetable, or mineral sources can be tested in their original state. If the medicine is in manufactured form, smell it, touch it, or taste it and then perform the test.  If contact is not advisable, test while holding the bottle or box.  You will find that sometimes brand name products and generic equivalents test alike -- and sometimes they do not.  If you have developed your skills in self-testing, you can get an instant reading by yourself.  If the doctor's office does not maintain samples to test, the pharmacist should be willing to sell you one pill before filling the whole prescription.  This will give you preliminary information; you can return to your doctor for advice from there on.

Casual conversations with friends have led me to unexpected avenues of investigation.  A member of the medical staff of a terminal-care unit was frustrated and depressed because so many of the drugs available to ease the pain of the dying patients produced toxic side effects.  Instead of bringing peace and comfort, the drugs increased the agony of many patients.  This immediately sounded to me like a REDLIST/GREENLIST dilemma.

I went to our local police station and asked if I could examine some of their confiscated narcotics.  They brought out a large case of labeled samples used for teaching and identification.  The officer helping me was GREENLIST and I, as you know, am REDLIST.  We tested the narcotics and they showed a definite polarity.

Then I went to the terminal-care unit.  The staff was just finishing lunch, so I drew up a little chart and tested the food on their trays.  When they brought out the drugs, we tested those and compared them with the food chart.  The results were a perfect illustration of Earth's polarity.

A nationally prominent specialist in diabetes invited me into his examining rooms to test his patients.  Of the first eighteen, sixteen were GREENLIST and only two were REDLIST.  When I pointed this out, he contemplated the fact that his medication and diet advice were all designed for GREENLIST patients.  His success with so many GREENLIST patients masked the inappropriate treatment of his rarer REDLIST clientle.

I sometimes work backwards to confirm the validity of my testing.  I notice people who are wearing medic-alert tags and find out which drugs give them trouble.  Then I check whether they are REDLIST or GREENLIST.  The results have invariably corroborated the theory proposed here.

Orthopedic surgery has accomplished miracles in repairing body mechanics.  When replacement is successful, new limbs and joints permit new lives.  An ever-present problem, however, is rejection of foreign substances by the body.

A patient was scheduled for hip replacement.  Her surgeon taped slivers of the four replacement materials to her forearm.  Three samples were inert but the fourth created a red spot.  He decided to defer the surgery until he could find an alternative for that substance  My muscle testing paralleled his observations, so I arranged for another orthopedic surgeon to allow me to test the materials he uses in prostheses.  Of six plastics and metals, two were suitable for either REDLIST or GREENLIST; two were for REDLIST only and two for GREENLIST only.  These simple tests provide a quick preliminary way to evaluate new materials coming on the market as technology "advances."

A GREENLIST acquaintance had been having repeated knee surgery.  The quadriceps muscles on the front of her thigh would not stay attached to the patella.  The doctor had high hopes for a suture using umbilical cord but that was also unsuccessful.  If the cord was from a REDLIST fetus, I wonder whether a GREENLIST cord might have held?.

One brand of heavy-gauge plastic pouch filled with liquid solution for breast implants is "no" for both REDLISTS and GREENLISTs.  I discovered this when a specialist referred a patient to me for testing because the woman's whole life had deteriorated in the two years since she had had surgery to enlarge her breasts.

The attempt to manufacture new drugs to suit everybody is bound to miss the mark.  There are already excellent REDLIST and GREENLIST medications; what we need is a specific determination as to which is effective for which biotype.  Recently I was able to test 100 of the new prescription drugs.  One-third of them were suitable for a patient with the appropriate symptoms.  Two-thirds of them were polarized and constituted real mischief if they were cross-matched.

My husband and I both came down with the flu and sought medical attention from different doctors; we each came home with an antibiotic and a cough syrup.  It was a fortunate coincidence that his medications were GREENLIST and mine were REDLIST.  We followed our instructions and recovered quickly.  However, had we both gone to the same physician, we both would have received the doctor's same drugs of choice.  Had that been the case, one of us might not have had so swift and successful a recovery.  

When my husband reacted badly to medication after open-heart surgery, we tested his four prescriptions and identified one as suspicious.  His doctor prescribed a substitute and the problem was solved immediately and conclusively.

Marvelous advances have been made in medicine by using careful scientific protocol.  I have three suggestions as to how the REDLIST/GREENLIST concept could aid basic research:

1.  Divide patients into REDLIST and GREENLIST before dispensing placebos and experimental drugs. There were two major research projects for heart-attack victims.  One study used some traditional REDLIST therapy, the other a new GREENLIST wonder drug.  Both studies claimed impressive success.  Unfortunately, the statistics, which showed positive results for around 25% of the subjects of each test, obscured the fact that the 75% failure rate included 50% from the opposite body type who could actually have been harmed by the test.  The results would have been truly spectacular if those patients could have been withdrawn from the study in advance before being exposed to risk.

2.  Animals and cultures being used in experiments should be tested for their REDLIST/GREENLIST constitution because they too necessarily fall into one of these two groupings.  Results cannot be universally valid if innate bias exists in the research.

3.  Be aware certain diseases are predominately REDLIST or GREENLIST.  Each group demands its own treatment no matter how successful another treatment has been for the opposite group.

It is interesting for me to watch the medical field deal with new concepts.  Laws originally designed to protect the public from a quack with a new chemistry set or a do-it-yourself home brain surgery kit now make it difficult for laypersons to interact with licensed professionals.  The only role for which I am authorized at present is the compilation of careful notes whose value will be evident when I can share them with impunity.
