Will the real Cass Igram (Ingram) step forward?

Cass Ingram also goes by the name of Cass Igram, and that made it very confusing to track down his true identity, and whether or not he holds a degree as a D.O. (doctor of osteopathy), or a M.D. (medical doctor). It has been literally impossible to track down his true identity on the internet. We've sent out dozens of e-mails to sites that sell his books, and hawk oil of oregano products and so far have batted zero.

Cass's own web site in Florida has no e-mail address, it's just an order taking site. Cass has published under both names.

There was a Cassim Igram who graduated in 1984 from the
College of Osteopathic Medicine & Surgery in Des Moines, Iowa.

Cass Igram's 1984 Yearbook pictureIn fact the picture that is on his own website happens to be the yearbook picture from that school.

At one time he has a valid license to practice as an osteopathic doctor in Illinois. His license number was 36070858.

His Illinois license was surrendered for cause on Feb 11, 1999.

Cassim Igram, Buffalo Grove -- physician and surgeon license reprimanded and fined $4,000 for allegedly failing to provide requested information to the Department in a timely manner. Dr. Igram voluntarily elected to have his medical license permanently placed on inactive status.

In 1999 his address at was Buffalo Grove, Illinois. According to the State of Illinois web site he has been disciplined, stemming from a case filed against him in 1996. He voluntarily relinquished his license after a consent order #96-2347 on Feb. 11, 1999.

Anyone wishing a copy of the complete disciplinary order in Illinois, can call Mr. Jeff Read at 217-785-0813. There will be a small charge for the copies.

Cassim Igram still holds an active license in general practice in Iowa #02144. The Iowa Osteopathic Association says that he is not a member of their organization, so they don't have an address for him, except the one in Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

If you feel that he was practicing medicine in Ontario, he was doing so without a valid medical license, i.e. he advised people to choose a treatment plan for a particular illness (E. coli:0157), you have every right to complain.

The Iowa Board of Medical Examiners, has a statement about why he really gave up his license in Illinois in a Adobe .pdf file. It states that he basically, while he was in Illinois, was charged with engaging in unprofessional, unethical and dishonorable conduct in his care of and treatment of several individuals who sought nutritional consultation. Dr. Igram was fined $4,000 and his Illinois medical license was placed on permanent and irrevocable inactive status. Under the terms of the Iowa Settlement Agreement, Dr. Igram must provide the Board 90 days writen notice and fully comply with any and all requirements established by the Iowa Board prior to beginning the practice of medicine under his Iowa medical license. I don't believe that he lives or practices medicine or osteopathic medicine in the U.S. His address at the time of the Iowa Board's posting was in Batavia, Illinois.

  • The problem with Cass Igram is not that he doesn't practice in the U.S. anymore, or that he was previously charged in Illinois. The problem is that he comes up here to Canada many times a year to present his seriously dubious views on our public. Does he see his family that lives in Windsor, Ontario when he comes to Canada? I don't think so. He comes here to sell books, and to sell products. Does he pay Canadian income tax or sales tax at these shows? I don't know.

    In fact, he will be coming up here to Toronto on November 23, 2003 to talk to a meeting sponsored by the Consumer Health Organization. This is a "fund raiser" so that their organizations and friends and politicians can help advance changes to the Canadian Food and Drug Act. Their goal is to have all supplements that are now regulated by Health Canada be regulated as a food.

    The Consumer Health Organization is better known for its 2001 Total Health Expo where they tried to bring in a fellow from the wilds of Virginia named Eustace Mullins, who is an avowed anti-Semite. They've also invited Len Horowitz who comes year after year. The most interesting talk I ever heard at one of their Expos was from cancer quack Hulda Clark, who needs no introduction.

    When Cass Ingram isn't up here hawking his orgegano cures, he may be hawking Royal Jelly.

    So where does that leave you in your quest to keep people like Cass Igram from coming back to Walkerton or to any other city in Ontario or Canada where he can ply his quackery on the poor people who are dying?

    You can always keep us informed, and by all means call your MPP, and MP to tell them that none of the regulators really cares, or are unable to help.

    All of you can help us stop medical quackery. Let us know where Cass Igram's flyers and posters are, and ask two health food store owners in Walkerton how much money they made selling snake oil from Cass's kitchen sink laboratory. And by the way, if you hear about him coming to town, give us a call, or e-mail us at: Cass Alert

    Cass Ingram on Christine McPhee's 
    Touch of Health - June 3, 2000

    CM: Today's show, we're gonna be talking about how to prepare for those super bugs, those super germs. We're gonna be talking about the issues that happened in Walkerton. We've got a doctor that was right there in----. So don't miss out. Dr. Cass Ingram will be joining us. I'm Christine McPhee with the Touch of Health saying hello to all who are listening as well as the new affiliate in St. Catherines. 

    CM: AIDS is a global epidemic. So is hepatitis. And drug resistant microbes like staphylococci, salmonella and others as well as E coli have been just escalating not only in the news but right here locally in Walkerton, Ontario. The latest result with Walkerton, we've got outbreaks that over a thousand people are sick, maybe more, and over 11 lives. Shelburne, Ontario where they're not sure how to handle the situation, but many of the people have been boiling their water and six wells are contaminated. Dr. Cass Ingram who is a nutritionist and medical doctor has been flown in from Chicago to be able to give us the insight of what's happening in Walkerton. Tell me about that Cass. 

    Cass: I'm sitting here. Well, I was actually spontaneously on the radio in the Walkerton area to help folks out and that led to this mass movement. And I was flown in and gave a lecture in Walkerton to 250 people, sort of a charity lecture. And it was very interesting to see what folks were dealing with so there's a first hand view here of what's going on and I've been here ever since. 

    CM: What is E coli? What is that all about and how did it come about? 

    Cass: Well it came about, one reason. What is water? We kinda take it for granted don't we? You don't think that you're gonna brush your teeth and end up dead five days later or take a shower and somehow get sick. When you wash your hands you don't think about it. When you wash your fruit, there's no thinking. It's automatic. When you drink the water, it's automatic. And E coli is not supposed to normally be in the water. But it is a germ and the word "coli" comes from the word colon meaning it's a cooling germ. E. coli is Escherichia coli which is a specific germ that's found in the intestines but not just in the intestines of humans, in the intestines of animals as well. And so you can start to think about what's happening and what people are drinking. There are many kinds of E. coli and I think that's important to make clear as well. 

    CM: What types are there? 

    Cass: Well, E. coli belongs to the E. coliforms. You'll see these words in the newsprint, coliform bacteria, which means actually hundreds of species. One of those is E. coli and the normal E. coli didn't cause a lot of disease, Christine. It was, you know, a cause of kidney disease, a cause of bladder problems, a cause of intestinal problems but it wasn't, and in some epidemics in terms of sewage contamination, but it wasn't this monstrous thing that would flat out kill somebody aggressively. But now there's a different kind of E. coli and that's a mutant E. coli. Its a man made trouble maker. It's a genetically altered, antibiotic induced monster. 

    CM: A super bug. 

    Cass: It is a super bug. And it's an aggressive unknown entity. It's a tough germ. And the big key is to understand what antibiotics do, how these germs are created and why can't we kill it. Well it's a matter of our immune system. A regular coliform, generally the immune system can recognize. E. coli 0157:B7, the super bug is not recognized enough. The immune system doesn't recognize it. It invades the gut wall and it's a super germ. By being a super germ, it not only is invasive, not only is it not recognized, but it produces a very aggressive toxin and that's what kills people. 

    CM: Could this be an epidemic? 

    Cass: It is an epidemic. There's not a could be. You can't have just...it's an epidemic because it struck an entire town and it's not just one town. There are other towns and of course that's for the epidemiologists to put together. My expertise is certainly there but what I really want to do is help people get ideas and uh, you know, knowledge so that they can use knowledge as power and use the ideas in case this gets further and it is a big situation. 

    CM: Were you at all in any of the hospitals at all? 

    Cass: I have been to the hospitals to disseminate information. I've been asked by the families to go and, you know, disseminate valuable information. So I have faxed and emailed material to the heads of departments and so forth, just to educate them and give them some idea of what's up in the scientific literature. They're busy doing what they're doing and I'm busy doing what I'm doing. We're trying to co-ordinate that. Also, I'm direly interested in getting to the ministry. Direly interested because I have invaluable information, life saving information and you'll hear how it's life saving. In fact, it already is life-saving, so, yes, that's part of it. 

    CM: What could be done, or what is being done right now. So we're treating it with antibiotics, is that... 

    Cass: No No No, they're really not because, I mean, look. If you look at the National Post and you pull out the Germ Warfare editorial. let's look at what our editorial writers are saying, that bacteria are resistant to modern medicine. It was Howard S. Gold in 1997 who said in the New England Journal of Medicine that there is no way that synthetic pharmaceuticals will kill the plagues of the future. There's no way to keep up with the mutants. We can't do it. The pharmaceutical companies say we can't do it. And so antibiotics make it worse because it allows this germ to produce more toxin and it's resistant to antibiotics. It was created by antibiotics largely. 

    CM: Cass, we're going to go to Shirley Ann Wald (sp?) who is a registered nurse in Walkerton. Maybe you could tell me, Shirley Ann, what's the latest update? 

    SAW: Well um, there's still people that um...we ourselves did not get sick but there's still people that, who had had the bloody diarrhea, had a few days of feeling well and then it came back. The bloody diarrhea had come back on them and I know a few particular cases and both of these people had started on the oil of oregano and they are feeling better. 

    CM: Now , now we're going to be talking about that, but tell me what is there more people in the hospital. Can they stand all this? 

    SAW: There were two airlifted out last evening, new cases. Um I do not work in the hospital anymore. I've worked at the Walkerton hospital for thirteen years and I certainly commend. I've worked in that hospital and I don't know how they can handle this for as long as they have handled it, because it's, it's a small hospital and they're doing a wonderful job and it is an epidemic and the London hospital is doing a wonderful job. 

    CM: I heard, I heard two children were actually airlifted last night from London. 

    SAW: To London from Walkerton, yes. 

    CM: Any other updates there? 

    SAW: I do not know. 

    CM: Well thanks very much for your call. Appreciate that, Shirley Ann. 

    SAW: Thank you. 

    CM: Gonna find more out from a resident, Pam Webber, who is gonna give me some of her feedback. Her grandmother died. Is that right? 

    Cass: That's what I understand, yes. 

    CM: Pam? 

    Pam: Yes? 

    CM: Pam, hello. Can you tell me what your family is feeling right now and how everything's going? 

    Pam: Um, well, at this point in time we're just trying to deal with the loss. Um, my street is, is not the most wonderful street. We've also lost a neighbour and we also have another neighbour whose little guy is in hospital in London. Um, and I'm not sure what his condition is at this point in time. Last I heard um they were hopeful for his recovery. 

    CM: The whole feeling that I'm getting is run. You know, with all these problems on your street and everything I feel horrible for you. Anything else that you might want to tell me about? 

    Pam: Just that we do find a lot of comfort in the support that we're getting from the surrounding communities. It's just phenomenal and this, and this knowledge, and this oil of oregano that, that Dr. Ingram has brought to us, it's, it's...I feel that it's awesome. Um, I know of um a family um, that, that took it and, and gave it to their son and uh, he's well now. He wanted to go to school but the schools are closed. Um, but it's, it's just people have to um, open up their hearts and minds and listen to what Dr. Ingram has to say to them while he's here. Um, he's he's out of Chicago and he came here to help us, um, and bring us this oil of oregano. People have to understand it. It's purely a natural thing. There's nothing to be afraid of. It's, it's safer than baby oil to just be applied to the foot of a small child. 

    CM: Really. Well you know what? We're gonna be talking about oil of oregano as well as someone who had their son get better who was actually really sick in hospital. So stay tuned okay. We've got lots of information not only what's going on in Walkerton. Dr. Cass flew in to be able to help the situation. We'll be right back. 

    CM: The Touch of Health takes health care back to basics providing information on the most effective alternative treatments. 

    Announcer: Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Call anytime, at 416-512-4872 or e-mail at info@thetouchofhealth.com

    CM: The posters in Walkerton read - "THIS MEETING COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE". Wednesday night was an event - E. coli without causing any side effects. Dr. Cass Ingram was there and 250 of the towns 4,800 residents showed up. What was that all about Dr. Cass?

     Cass: Yeah, that was an event that the local people arranged and asked for my presence. They knew that I published heavily on E. coli. They knew that I had extensive information to provide and they chose to do that. Of course it was completely non-commercial. And, uh, wonderful thing. Folks got highly educated about E. coli, the symptoms, the physiology, the mechanism of the illness, perhaps the causes of why this came out. And some answers, serious answers that are proven by scientific literature. 

    CM: What is the scientific literature out there? 

    Cass: Well, the scientific literature is two-fold. Number one, the fact is that there are numerous germs that are impossible to kill with antibiotics now, and they are all induced by our sort of germ warfare, antibiotics, genetically engineered material. Uh, and uh, I conducted along with four other investigators at Georgetown University in 1999, and continuing in the year 2000, a monumental scientific study based on the work done by the Greeks in 1996, and by Cavell, a Frenchman from 1918. When Cavell in 1918 took septic water, sewage water, he inoculated the sewage water with beef broth, as if sewage water isn't already bad enough. He puts beef broth in it, feeds the stuff. And that's kinda what's happened in Walkerton, actually, and all these other communities because.... 

    CM: (....interrupted) They're saying that it's from the beef anyway. Hee hee hee. 

    Cass: Oh, I didn't mean it that way. 

    CM: Huh Huh from the cows anyway, that's what you're trying.....(chortle chortle) 

    Cass: Well, I didn't mean it that way. 

    CM: Huh Huh 

    Cass: I didn't mean it as a "sacrificial calf". 

    CM: Heh heh 

    Cass: But, what happened is you've got organic material, you've got global warming, you've got two warm winters, you've got a lack of a good permafrost, and you've got an epidemic. O.K.? Forget all the other comments, it's an epidemic. And, well in any case he inoculated it, he then put in one drop of a number of essential oils, one of which was a most interesting one, oil of oregano. He inoculated it, put a drop in what would be a small glass of water. That's a glass of sewage water, one drop of oil of oregano, he sterilized the water. He could not get anything to grow out of that water. He could not find any bacteria. 

    In 1996, at the Univ...at the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry at Thessaloniki, researchers took sewage water -- septic water, inoculated the septic water, and used a wild high-mountain oregano vs. the farm raised, used the high mountain wild in a 1:4000 dilution, sterilized the water. Uh, it was Siddiqui (sp?) and his group who killed all viruses. It was Wayne State University in 1999 who destroyed strep, drug-resistant strep. And it took us to do it a stop further. I don't know if you know about the atomic research in the 1950s, where they dropped the bomb and they put out petri dishes. 

    CM: Uh hum

     Cass: There were two things that survived the atom bomb. 

    CM: Gingko

     Cass: (....Chuckle Chuckle Chuckle...) Cockroaches were one, and I think probable people knew that. The one thing they don't know is that candida albicans survived, a very difficult to kill fungus. So, we took the most difficult to kill organisms that we had at the time in 1999. We plated it, we hit it with three drugs, including oil of oregano. Uh, oil of oregano completely killed candida albicans, and one of the drugs couldn't even kill it. We took mice and infected them.....you don't even really... 

    CM: Let me just ask you, everybody is going to think of this as the stuff you put in spaghetti sauce. We're not talking about this. 

    Cass: Well of course it wouldn't be the same, we'd all be immune to everything as much as we eat. But, for 50,000 years certain villagers and primitives have selected out of 80 different types of spices and oreganos one or two plants because of the high level of a substance called "carvitrol" (sp.?), very high levels 60%, 70% and this actually is even mentioned in the ancient bible as the word "ezov", which means the purifying herb, which means the anointing herb, and it's the same herb that happens, in my opinion, to be the "burning bush" that Moses was supposed to search for because if you were to go to the Sinai, grab a bunch of oregano in a sweaty hand it would burn like the dickens. And, there is no "hyssop" there. 

    So in any case ancient use but modern history we then injected....and you say....for 50,000 years of human use why do you have to spend a lot of money? It's just kinda nice to see both ways, the ancient use, the human use, and some of the research. The mice were injected with candida and they all croaked, everybody died in seven days. Except the everybody that got the oil of oregano, a small amount, and all the mice lived. 

    Georgetown university said, and I had told Georgetown, I said "It's gonna work". They said "How can you say that?" They are great people, I said "It's just gonna work". 

    50,000 years of human use, ancient texts, ancient biblical texts. So, so all the mice survived. Now, guess what? The most difficult to kill germ, you have to have "space suits" to deal with it.

     CM: Huh huh huh

     Cass: Yeah, the "bubble men are in" and we're doing it and it's working, drug resistant staph. E. coli is minor stuff. Even E. coli:0157 is MINOR STUFF compared to drug resistant, vancomycin resistant staph. It won't stand a chance. 

    CM: Unbelievable. We're gonna go to a caller. Is it Linda Kueneman (sp?)

     Linda: I'm good.

     CM: You're a resident of Walkerton? 

    Linda: Actually, no I'm a resident of Mildmay. 

    CM: Where's that? 

    Linda: It is very close to Walkerton, 8 km. 

    CM: What's happening? 

    Linda: We have an epidemic, and we have to clean that up very, very quickly. And I went to Dr. Ingram's seminar on Wednesday. I went a skeptic and came out a believer. 

    CM: But...did you have the situation, what made you all of a sudden to make the changes to go, you know "I need help". Did you go in for help? 

    Linda: Umm, yes my son had it. 

    CM: How old's your son? 

    Linda: My son was, is 12. 

    CM: He's 12 years old. 

    Linda: And he developed the symptoms on the 13th. I called the hospital on the 14th they told me it was the flu going around. Or actually I called that day, sorry. It called the 13th, on the 14th I called them back and said this is not the flu, my husband is on his way up, and he was diagnosed with E. coli. Everybody in that emergency room was doubled over. The phone was ringing off the hook. I mean...you know... 

    CM: And getting, where to you go? Wait in line. 

    Linda: So, I got angry and I called my MPP, Bill Murdoch, I called the Health Unit, the Bruce-Grey Health Unit and I asked them why they were not issuing warnings. They said they had samples that had not come back yet. And I said why are you waiting, you know you have an epidemic happening here. But, anyway, that's not either here nor there. Um, I watched my son reduced to somebody that he never was. Um, Billy was a healthy young boy. He sat on the toilet in the bathroom for four days and four nights.

     CM: Oh my goodness

     Linda: He never left, doubled over, bent over in pain, with blood pouring out. 

    CM: Oh my gosh

     Linda: So, I then again was angry and got on the internet and started looking up stuff and then I started e-mailing and faxing papers, media, anybody I could think of and saying there's something happening up here, we're not getting answers, would you please send reporters up and help us out?

     CM: O.K. 

    Linda: O.K. Now Billy started to recover when the diarrhea was abating. There's nothing you can do for it, so they say. 

    CM: Is that what they were telling you? 

    Linda: Absolutely. Tylenol with codeine for the pain

     CM: Oh my God

     Linda: But, they can not give antibiotics because that will you know increase the risk for further toxins. So I.... 

    CM: Oh as a mother what do you do? My goodness, when you've got no other solutions, well hospital this is an emergency situation they can't help you?

     Linda: NO. They told me what to watch for, you know, I mean the hospital was great, I can't criticize the hospital or the staff. They were really really great. And they told me the signs and symptoms to watch for, you know for dehydration or for kidney failure or anything like that. Which I did. And um, when I heard that Dr. Ingram on the radio when he was in Wingham, I went to his seminar, and I, I was very very skeptical cause I, you know, about different things like that. But, he was so convincing and had so much information, and they handed it out free. And they handed out oil of oregano free to anybody that was there.

     CM: WOW

     Linda: So, I came home and I gave it Billy, I also talked to Dr. Ingram that night to make sure that I treated Billy correctly.

     CM: Right

     Linda: I came home that night and gave it to him, and I gave it to him the following day, and he was a different boy.


     Linda: He had no energy before that, he laid on the couch, and couldn't even get up to eat. Um, he just was nothing, I mean he had nothing there. He'd lost over 10 pounds. And um, he was by the second day that I had given him this oil of oregano back to normal.

     CM: That's good news. I'm really glad that your son's in recovery, and that other people are taking the same medicine as well.

     Linda: Well the thing is, it's not going to hurt them. You know, it can't do any harm, and why wouldn't you try it? You know, I think it's so ridiculous that medical professionals up here won't use it, I really do. And we still have people dying and we still have people sent down to London. We still have new cases happening. Private wells now are being tested, and finding E. coli. You know it's not over.

     CM: Thanks for your call, appreciate that Linda.

     Linda: Thank you very much. thanks

     CM: Thanks, bye-bye. We've made several people very happy Cass, and hopefully it's working for them as well, too. You know let's talk about this killer this E. coli which it is. It effects all the bladder, the kidney, it just overgrows it overtakes you, there's no answers. Antibiotics are not the answer as well. Um.

     Cass: Well Christine, here's what happens, the E coli:0157H7 is a mutant germ. It has mutated to the degree that it is able to evade immune defenses. It is able to evade the immune defenses that normally inhabit the gut wall. It then, also because it is a supergerm it's a supergenetic germ it pumps out fast amounts of an endotoxin. And that endotoxin is produced by, while it's in the gut. That toxin rips to shreds the gut wall, induces voluminous diarrhea, very similar to cholera. It's a cholera-like illness that I'm seeing and hearing about, they die of dehydration. They die of bleeding, you know. And they die of kidney failure because the toxin then from this particular germ, it's a man-made thing. It gets into the blood. 

    CM: What is this oil of oregano? Is it a natural anti-septic? Is it an antiviral, antibacterial, what is it?

     Cass: That's the difference, isn't it? Antiseptic, it is not an antibiotic. It does not induce genetic mutants. It kills germs by exothermic reaction, by a fever reaction, by heat. I don't know how many people out there have ever tried a good grade of oil of oregano, and that is the one warning. As our dear lady said, the only side effect of a good oil of oregano is you might get shocked and get well, despite our skepticisms that are natural. And, I encourage a little bit of research and skepticism, but not to the point of killing ourselves. In any case, the big side effect is that you might get well, you will get well. And, it does this by exothermic reaction. 

    And the only precaution is to make sure that you get an edible oil of oregano, in olive oil, the one I use, and the only one that's researched, the only one's that the subject of modern research is oil of oregano when it comes in the blue label and it has a white cap. Blue label -- white cap. And, that's the one that's you need to use. Now there's a type you need to know, there's a super-strength oil of oregano, and there's an oil of oregano, they're both useful. 

    CM: We're now gonna be opening up the phone lines, it's 870-6400 on any call for Dr. Cass Ingram for anything about superbugs, superimmunity, give us a call 870-6400 or 1-888-225-8255 if you're out of town. I'm Christine McPhee with The Touch of Health, we'll be right back. 

    CM: (She then did some promotions and asked people to call her after the show to answer the usual questions at 416-512-4872)...I've got a great guest on, Dr. Cass Ingram who has written a book "Life Saving Cures: How to Use the Most Powerful and Natural Cures of the 21th Century". 

    We've been talking about Waterton...Walkerton, and I'm going to open the phone lines up, we've got some available 870-6400, 1-888-225-8255 if you're out of town. Be persistent, get on and we can talk about many things Dr. Cass. So, let's go to George, you've got a question for Cass?

     George: Yes, I do have, and will oil of oregano help for colitis, ulcerative colitis?

     Cass: Well, yes, again if there's bacteria in the gut, or yeasts, or fungi or invasive parasites that, you know, that are causing damage in there and you take something like oil of oregano, particularly, I love Oregamax. I had a bad case of irritable bowel from food poisoning and it just cleared it right up for me. So, I do write about that in the book, of course we're not here to diagnose or anything like that, but you will find the information in the book on it. O.K.?

     George: What is the book called?

     Cass: "The Cure is in the Cupboard" would be the first one for you, or the "Lifesaving's Cures" book, or both. You know, look for both of them.

     George: Are they available in Chapters?

     Cass: Chapter can order them, or get to your health food store.

     George: Oh, in the health food store.

     CM: Thanks George for now.

     George: Thanks

     Cass: Let's go to Fred. You have a bout of chronic fatigue?

     Fred: Hello, is this Christine? 

    CM: Yes, hello.

     Fred: Yes, hello, I had a question about candida albicans. My question is about candida albicans and chronic fatigue and if oil of oregano will help that? 

    Cass: Well, the fact is that oil of oregano is extremely good for killing candida yeast. Now, there isn't anything out there yet for chronic fatigue syndrome in terms of a clinical trial that I can tell you the case histories in the book are pretty profound. I've received a number of letters from people with chronic fatigue who improved dramatically. And in the back of the book "The Cure is in the Cupboard" there's a case history a child of a 31 year old whose live was completely changed, who had "yeast syndrome". O.K.?

     CM: Thanks Fred. Pick up the book. Let's go to Windsor, Jenna. Hello..... 

    Jenna: Hello?

     Cass: Hello Jenna.

     Jenna: I'm sorry I'm on my cell phone, can you hear me o.k.? I've got, I've been diagnosed with generalized anxiety, and I'm just wondering, I don't know if you have some suggestions for somebody that is living with it? 

    Cass: Well, again, this particular thing has so many causes. Do you eat wheat? Do you eat porridge and wheat and toast? 

    Jenna: No, no.

     Cass: O.K., o.k. what's your favourite breakfast food? 

    Jenna: Errrrrrrr. When I eat it? I don't know, toast maybe, like white bread, or a bagel or something.

     Cass: Well, I thought that was the same as wheat? Last time I saw....

     Jenna: Giggle giggle giggle

     Cass: Young lady, if you ate right. You know, I don't want to put a guilt trip on you, but if we get you to eat a high protein breakfast, I've found wheat to be a terrible depressant in people who are sensitive. Yank the wheat. Yank the commercial grains. Eat nothing but fruits, meats, and vegetables, you're gonna feel like a million bucks. (in a tuneful manner)

     Jenna: A lot better, all right. Well, I'll try it.

     CM: Keep us posted. Thanks. Calls and lines are available......

     Let's go to Saaed from out of town

     Saaed: Yes.

     CM: What can we talk about?

     Saaed: About flax see oil, would that help high cholesterol and diabetes?

     Cass: Well, here's an interesting thing. High cholesterol can be caused by essential fatty acid deficiency. And, if you eat foods that are rich in essential fatty acids, or if you take flax seed oil, there's a strong chance that you will have a reduction in cholesterol levels. A high cholesterol level does happen to be a sign - symptom of essential fatty acid, but a double handful of sunflower seeds and a couple of avocados a day, I know it's shocking, and lots of nuts and seeds and a couple teaspoons of flax seed oil is a preferable approach I think. 

    CM: Saaed thanks for your call. Let's go to Ed. What's your question?

     Ed: Hello there, thank you for taking my call.

     Cass: Yes Ed. 

    Ed: Dr., I've had interstitial cystitis for 14 years, and the medical profession can't help me. What do you recommend?

     Cass: There's some interesting research on the germ enterococcus. It's a bacteria that's invasive and drug resistant that piles into the wall of the bladder. There is some evidence to incriminate aspergillus and candida albicans. There's a lot of evidence showing it's infection. So you heard what we talked about. Read the books, there's a lot of information in the "Lifesaving Cures" on bladder, bladder, bladder. Yaah.

     Ed: Really, where will I find those books, sir?

     Cass: "Lifesaving's Cures", Coles, any major bookstore, or healthfood stores. Go to a healthfood stores and hound them, they'll help you.

     CM: Let's go to Ancaster, Mary, you've got a question

     Mary: Hi, yeah, I'll ask quick, um. About four years ago I came down with strep. I still feel dizzy, nausea, fullness in the stomach, overall feeling unwell. I had just come back from Aruba. Could this help me, the Oregamax? Should anybody be worried about taking it if you have any kind of allergies to it? 

    Cass: Well, it's pretty tough to be allergic to wild, high mountain extract, spice, like oregano. So don't worry about it. In fact it's quite anti-allergy, so Oregamax would be a profoundly valuable daily supplement for you, to build your immune system. Polish researchers took 40 different herbs, your gingkos, your goldenseals, and all that. Only oregano popped the immune system up, popped the interferon level. It's "ezov", it's ancient "hyssop" of the bible. And it even neutralized poisoned hemlock, and in ancient times old Socrates should have done a little oil of oregano. He named it, "oreganos", the light of the mountains, it's Greek. What's amatta wid doz guys?

     CM: You know on a serious note, the townsfolk want to know what you're going to be doing when you go back. Let's pour some of this stuff into the wells and get that all sorted out in Walkerton. I'm Christine McPhee with a great guest. We'll be right back.

     Dr. Cass Ingram, Life Saving Cures, as well as the Cure is in the Cupboard that you can pick up at any health food store, or you can call any Walkerton related issues as well. Call this number, listen carefully, get a pen.

    1-800-265-2615 Cass, I want to wrap it up with you. Is this really truly a quick fix solution for Walkerton, this mini-epidemic?

     Cass: It's not so much a quick fix, it's a definite substance that can kill these kinds of terrible germs. It could be a way to actually eradicate it in the water supply if we could get to the ministry. If we could get this in the water supply there's ways to do it. But, for sure, taking it's safe as a daily spice, powerful prevention, powerful remedy.

     CM: Thanks for joining me, and as always for everyone listening, be well and be responsible, and tune into the next hour. I'm Christine McPhee, we'll be right back. 

    More to come........
