In the beginning of 2008 I did a 21 day fast and silent meditation retreat...
It was the most challenging and most rewarding experience I have ever done. I went into deeply transformative spaces in body and psyche. The profound spiritual transformation is still fully present, reverberating through me as a continuous ecstatic undercurrent. In general, I feel reborn, renewed, fresh and bubbling, vibrantly alive and full of gratitude.
ARTHRITIS & SWOLLEN KNEES:|
In 2006, I had arthritis. My knees kept swelling and I was in such pain that I could not walk.
... Not only did I get well, I also lost 40 lbs. I now feel fantastic.
Without Dr. Baylac's knowledge I would have gotten worse. Today I am very happy and satisfied with my health..

Coconuts can add flavor, variety and -- best of all -- healthy nutrients to your diet. Coconuts are rich in lauric acid, which is known for being antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal, and boosts the immune system.
Fresh coconut juice is one of the highest sources of electrolytes known to man, and can be used to prevent dehydration, for instance in cases of diarrhea or strenuous exercise, instead of a sports drink. Some remote areas of the world even use coconut juice intravenously, short-term, to help hydrate critically ill patients and in emergency situations.
