My book, The End Of Medicine, is written to describe
in detail how and why the Large Intestine is the "root organ"
of all disease, and all the many, many symptoms of Metal Disease
(LargeIntestine/Lungs) are chronicled in the chapter on Diagnosis
in The End of Medicine. In order to be fair to all concerned
- purchasers of the book who do not haveweb access, and visitors
to The Alchemycal Pages, I am not putting all the details in the
book on the website . (If you think I am being unfair in not putting
all the details here,consider that I am providing the information
on The Alchemycal Pages for free (since June1996), which costs
me 480 dollars a year plus the many, many hours of time put into
adding to and maintaining the website, plus answering and giving
advice to people who e-mail me, also free). In the book, Chapters
2, 6, 8-11 are taken from pages on the site and have been modified
and some minor changes made. Chapters 1, 3-5, 7 and 12 and the
Bibliography are not on the website). So, if you are a frequent
visitor to The Alchemycal Pages, I urge you to consider buying
the book in order to get a fuller picture.
To emphasize why I think you will be doing yourself a service
buying The End of Medicine, consider the following:
I have been involved in the quest to discover the origin, source,
reasons, meaning etc., of disease since I was 16 years old. In
the course of my quest I attended the School of Veterinary Medicine
and Science of The University of Liverpool, from where I graduated
in 1971, with the Degree of Bachelor of Veterinary Science. I
then entered into the employment of Assistant Veterinary Surgeon
and Clinician in Large Animal Practice in various veterinary clinics
and practices throughout the United Kingdom for 7 years. It was
during this period that I discovered macrobiotics.
At that time, 1975, I was 28 years old and suffering various
chronic physical and psychological ailments - chronic painful
lower back, sciatica such that some mornings I couldn't even get
out of bed I was in so much pain, insomnia, depression, worry,
fatigue, and was grossly overweight(200 lbs). And it was within
three weeks of starting my macrobiotic life that all these symptoms
began to disappear. Now, 25 years later, at the age of 53, I have
been pain free the entire time, I have boundless vitality, enthusiasm,
sleep like a baby, I weigh 130 lbs.
It was while I was practicing veterinary medicine and surgery
while at the same time starting my macrobiotic life that I discovered
that modern scientific medicine doesn't have a clue about either
disease or health. Now, since I started living macrobiotically
I have never seen a doctor, I do not have a doctor because I am
my own physician, I do not have health insurance and I do not
belong to any so-called Health (Disease) Maintenance Organisation.
In other words, I am independent and free of all the bogus
scientific gobbledygook and modern medical propaganda masquerading
as medicine today, as a result of living macrobiotically.
I went to the Kushi Institute in Brookline, Mass, in 1979.
Then I came to the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife in 1981.
Since 1982 I have been doing macrobiotic educational counseling
and in that time I have personally counseled thousands of people
and seen them heal of every known symptomology of the one disease
we are all subject to. These symptomologies include, to name a
few, AIDS, arthritis, asthma, allergies, endometriosis, chronic
nephritis, breast cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, prostate
cancer, colon cancer, brain cancer, candididiasis, hepatitis B
and C, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, multiple sclerosis, leukemia,
tinnitis, diabetes and lupus.
Now, I have also seen people with these conditions NOT heal
themselves, so there can be no question of macrobiotic living
(or any other approach) being a cure for any disease symptomology.
Therefore, if you choose to start living macrobiotically then
you can expect it to be a difficult and exhilarating path on the
way to health.
The End of Medicine gives you a map, a compass and shows
you how to start walking on this path. However, the map is not
the territory, you have to learn how to use the compass (yin and
yang) and you have to do the walking. This is to say, there are
no guarantees offered

COOKING CLASS VIDEOS.
I have around thirty eight 2 hour cooking class videos.
These are taped live, so there is no editing,
proofreading, etc., what I did and discussed is what
you see and hear. The subject matter discussed, in
addition to the practical matter of cooking the meal
in the classes is totally spontaneous. All subjects, issues,
and matters discussed are from an anthroposophical
and/or macrobiotic perspective and often start with a
question by a student in the class. The classes are
for beginners to macrobiotic cooking and include showing
how and why the meals were prepared and the discussions
range from spiritual to philosophical to technical.
Each class is done according to the season, so throughout
the course of the year there are classes on Spring,
Summer, Late Summer, Fall and Winter Cooking.
Thus, any Spring Class video emphasizes cooking for
Liver/Gall Bladder; any Summer Class video for
Heart/Small Intestine; any Late Summer Class video
for Stomach/Spleen-Pancreas; any Fall Class video for
Lungs/Large Intestine and Winter Class video for Kidneys/Bladder.
Each cooking class shows a demonstration of a soup,
grain dish, vegetable dish, leafy green and dessert.
They are $25.00 each incl. p&p.
A set of 5 seasonal classes is $100.00 incl. p&p.
A set of 12 classes of the whole year is $200.00 incl.
LECTURE AUDIO TAPES.
I have a set of 12 Audio Tapes of lectures. The set
of tapes is sold with an accompanying booklet of
illustrations. The tapes are $12.00 each or $100.00
for the set of 12 (including p&p). These lectures were taped
in 1993 and they hold up well.
ARE YOU READY FOR THE 21st CENTURY?
Twelve Lectures by Kaare Bursell
Lecture 1. The Unifying Principle and Yin and Yang.
One of the most important conceptual tools for the
practice of macrobiotics. Since everything changes,
including one's condition, it is important to understand
yin and yang so that one can maintain one's health and
vitality at all ages and in all climates and seasons.
Lecture 2. The Five Transformations.
Another important conceptual tool that is also eminently
practical and also necessary to understand if one is
going to practice macrobiotics.
Lecture 3. The Spiral of Change.
How to see the various stages and dynamics of growth
and development of any process, be it human
development, the growth of a plant, our practice of
macrobiotics, of civilizations etc.
Lecture 4. The Human Being is a Spiritual Being.
Exploring the interconnectedness of the physical, etheric,
and soul "bodies" of the human being and their
relevance to a healthy individual and social organism.
Lecture 5. Blood Alchemy and Digestion.
Explains the radical macrobiotic theory of digestion
as the transformation of food into blood and how it relates
to disease, health and healing.
Lecture 6. A Macrobiotic approach to Health and Disease.
The large overview of the relationship of disease to
an imbalanced way of life and how to consciously recover a
balanced way of life and how and why that can lead
to revitalization, regeneration and recovery on all levels.
Lecture 7. Sex, Procreation, Birth Control and Overpopulation
in relation to the practice of
A talk on the process of procreation as it relates
to the physical, ethical and spiritual condition of the individual
in our society in relation to the state of the soil
in the practice of agriculture. The resulting condition of the
thus produced and its effects on the sexual activity
of the population.
Lecture 8. Constitutional Diagnosis.
How to interpret your constitution as an aid to fulfilling
Lecture 9. Conditional Diagnosis.
How to interpret your facial features as an aid to
knowing the condition of your internal organs.
Lecture 10. Spiral of History.
A look at the history of humanity from 10,000 B.C.
to the present to understand the forces that have permeated
the historical process and what it suggests as possibilities
for the next 1000-2000 years.
Lecture 11. The Spiritual Development of Humanity.
An account of the spiritual development of humanity
based on Rudolf Steiner's An Outline of Occult Science.
Lecture 12. Lucifer and Ahriman.
A description and account of the active spiritual counter
forces to the fulfillment of the true destiny of humanity
and the earth.
The lecture series is most useful as a series but each
lecture is designed to be complete unto itself.
The series may be viewed as a twelve-faceted whole
giving a relatively clear indication of the nature and spirit
of a 21st Century approach to healing yourself and
MACROBIOTIC EDUCATIONAL COUNSELING.
Now, I am hesitant to offer this service and I will
only do counseling if you cannot find anyone in your local
area (500 mile radius from where you live) who does
macrobiotic counseling and/or cooking classes. If you are
interested in finding someone you can either get a
hold of the International Macrobiotic Directory (See
Resources on obtaining a copy) or you can e-mail me
with information on where you live and I will look it up
and let you know who (along with tel. #) is in your
area doing counseling and/or cooking classes.
If there is no-one in your area and you wish to have
a macrobiotic educational counseling with me, the fee is
$125.00. I will need you to mail or e-mail a recent
photograph of your face (ladies, no make-up on, please) , like
passport-type photo, b&w or color , along with
date of birth, and a chronological medical history, along with
the check. In return I will mail or e-mail you detailed
dietary recommendations along with suggestions for
home remedies (ginger compress, daikon bath, etc.)
based on the information you give me and reading your
face. The fee also includes you can call or e-mail
me with any questions, concerns, for further advice, etc., for
a period of four months. After four months you can
have another three months of e-mail service for $60.00.
