A hot summer day in 1980. I’d spent much of it outdoors on our forty wild acres near Kingston, Arkansas. Now I stood meditatively inside our little hexagonal cabin, when suddenly, a group of figures composed of white light appeared within the field of white light which vibrated in and around me. I heard this unexpected message coming from them: “You could work on a book about natural means of protecting people from radiation if you want to.“
The wording of the message was completely respectful of my free will. The sacredness and clarity of the moment was so memorable that I recalled it several weeks later when Steven Schechter, N.D., a naturopathic physician, showed up on our land unannounced. He told me that he iwa just beginning research on a pamphlet about natural means of protecting the body from ionizing radiation. We ended up working together for over seven years on what was finally published in 1988 as a full-length book titled Fighting Radiation with Foods, Herbs, and Vitamins. It appeared in two more editions over the next several years, further expanded by Steven, the primary author, to include some information about counteracting the effects of chemical pollutants.
