The important concept of “epi-genetics” was emphasized in that lecture. How many times have we heard health experts blame “genetics” (our inherited DNA structure) as the cause for many chronic disorders from acne to obesity and from autoimmune disorders to cancer?
Well, it’s true that genetic tendencies play a role in the evolution of dysfunction. But recent scientific advances have shown conclusively that epi-genetic elements (emotional stress, pollution, food choices, immune imbalance, microbial overgrowth, nutritional supplementation, exercise, hygiene, sleep, etc.) play a much greater role in dis-ease formation then the DNA sequence we were born with! In fact, epi-genetic factors strongly determine whether or not your genetic predispositions will manifest as actual disease!
"How many times have we heard health experts blame "genetics" (our inherited DNA structure) as the cause for many chronic disorders from acne to obesity and from autoimmune disorders to cancer?"
Nevertheless, in today’s environment it is increasingly important to know our structural (inherited) genetic tendencies, because increasing levels of toxic pollutants, infectious agents, drugs, and sources of stress push us to the brinks of manifesting our genetic propensities. In other words, our epi-genetic influences are overwhelming our capacity to resist illness, causing our inherited weaknesses to become reality all too often, and leading to the current epidemic of chronic disease.
During the first few days of my trip I have been contemplating these issues further and concluded that the greatest influence I can have on people’s epigenetic factors would be through the 90-day detoxification program that I originated early this winter. At that time, I realized that the program was partially incomplete as it was presented and I felt rushed to offer it before it had the opportunity to mature into a truly meaningful detoxification program, replete with ALL the important epigenetic elements I had envisioned, which necessitated the full length of 90 days (you cannot cram so many detoxification-related components in less than 3 months while respecting your body’s true abilities to detoxify).
"I am now happy to announce that within a week, my newly enhanced 90-Day Deep Tissue Medical Detoxification Program will be unveiled. It will be the best ….. period!"
The first 6 weeks of my original “90-Day Detox” appeared “lacking in action” - although it was a step in the right direction, as any birthing process is. I am now happy to announce that within 10 days, my newly enhanced 90-Day Deep Tissue Medical Detoxification Program will be unveiled. It will be the best, period! It is the first time I actually feel comfortable with an online detoxification program that actually works! In order to receive Ecopolitan’s “stamp of approval,” a program has to be extremely effective clinically, removing the MAXIMAL amount of poisons from your brain, subcutaneous fat, connective tissues, joints, and internal organs. Only a SERIOUS Medical Detoxification Program can be significant in alleviating your organs and tissues from disease-causing environmental and internally produced toxins. For real results, you must engage in the extremely-important initial 6-weeks of this program. These preparatory 6 weeks (with all their added elements) will prevent you from wasting most of the attempted proactive toxin elimination process that occurs in the last 6 weeks:
How can you expect your tissues to release their built in poisons when additional poisons are still coming in, flooding your circulation and taxing your liver?
How can you eliminate your deep toxins without first addressing the health of adjunctive detoxification organs and “unclogging” them, to allow efficient handling of toxins released by the tissues?
How can you accomplish your goals doing the last 6 weeks of the program without first addressing any inflammatory tendencies during the first 6 weeks?
This is not about convenience and comfort, or about ease of marketing (it’s obviously simpler to promote shorter “detox plans” that don’t accomplish what they claim to accomplish). It’s about providing medically tangible results! And these results, aside from improving your health gently yet effectively, will prepare your body fully for any of our other health programs that are being planned meticulously and thoroughly, with YOUR HEALTH INTEGRITY in mind. All these programs are the culmination of my 20-year experience with general medicine, nutritional and functional medicine, chiropractic, and environmental medicine, as well as my work with ecological and humanitarian projects worldwide. There will be some pleasant surprises and opportunities for self-discovery in these programs…
Patience is a virtue and I assure you that the full 90 day-program, as long as it may sound, will not be so boring as to require a whole lot of virtue…
"To give it the Ecopolitan’s "stamp of approval", a program has to be extremely effective clinically, removing the MAXIMAL amount of poisons from your brain, subcutaneous fat, connective tissues, joints, and internal organs."
Just as my original 90-Day Detox Program stated, lab tests are NOT required. Such tests are adjunctive optional tools for those who suffer from more significant inflammation and/or those who can afford to engage in meaningful tests. For example, the recommended blood test for food and environmental sensitivities has been proven reliable, reproducible and highly effective (in one study, 98.5% of people who resisted weight loss succeeded in attaining their weight goal simply by following the results of this blood test). This test, which is unfortunately not familiar to most holistic practitioners, is very different from (and superior to) other common blood tests for food allergies. You will hear a lot more about the weaknesses and strengths of various allergy tests during an entire lecture that will be available to those joining this Program.
The Ecopolitan Original 90-Day Deep Tissue Medical Detoxification program is not only the best in quality and clinical results, it also promises to give you the best value comparing with other online “detox programs.” You will be able to join (atwww.ecopolitan.com) and enjoy the benefits within just one week…

The day after my epigenetic and detoxification genomics lecture I returned to Tel Aviv to give another lecture about issues related to brain disorders (attention, memory, learning, and developmental issues affecting children and adults). But this is a topic for another newsletter. These two lectures (delivered by me in Hebrew) will be available through our Hebrew Web site very soon (in case you wish to learn another language quickly…).
Anyway, it’s good to be back! Exciting times are ahead of us and work is plentiful. Please spread the news to all your health-seeking friends and families - they will enjoy the free 7-day menu planner when they sign up for the Newsletter! I will send another newsletter shortly to describe some other aspects of my travels in Italy and Israel, which are of importance to our physical and environmental health, but will try to avoid overwhelming your inbox. Please let me know if you feel that I am…
And DON’T FORGET to check out our our Health Study Online Course, jam packed with lectures about nutrition, supplements, environmental health concerns, children’s health, women’s health and much, much more. Your classmates and forums are there to support you in your study and help you progress along. You’ll get to download transcripts, take away sheets and quiz yourself with fun tests. Students get prepared for multiple certifications and may continue onward to university degrees (all the way to a PhD) if they wish at very affordable rates.
Yours in health,

Ofek's Amazing AND SIMPLE Carob Cake… (Visit Ofek's site here...)
…with the REAL cake texture and feel…more delicious than you would ever imagine carob could taste! Try it once and you will make it again…and again…and again!
Part I - Ingredients (go organic!)
- 2 to 3 cups soaked or sprouted buckwheat (*Extra if desired…see below.)
- 1 cup carob powder
- 1 cup dates
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (or desired amount)
Soak buckwheat for up to 1 hour. Sprout at least 1 day (optional), with no rinsing (to keep it dry). Mix occasionally to dry it.
Process the buckwheat and carob powder in a food processor, NOT a blender. Add the dates, one at a time until doughy.
Spread the coconut flakes on the bottom of a Pyrex or glass baking dish and then spread the above mixture on top of the coconut flakes.
Part II - Ingredients
- 1 cup dates
- 1-2 T coconut oil
- ½ cup carob powder
- warm water
- coconut flakes for garnish
In a blender mix dates, coconut oil, carob powder and hot water. *(Extra soaked buckwheat can be added to increase volume). Blend until smooth, adding warm water as needed. Spread on top of mixture in baking dish. Decorate with additional coconut flakes.
In a time crunch, this entire cake can be made in just over an hour (including 30 minutes soaking of the buckwheat but without sprouting … then eliminating the excess water by spreading the soaked buckwheat on a towel).
