Many people today are looking for anti-aging methods and therapies.  Nutritional balancing is one such method.  It works in many ways.  Many of our clients tell us that their friends and acquaintances often remark how young they look.  Also, they feel younger inside, with more energy, more flexibility, and fewer symptoms of aging.

Nutritional balancing restores youth because it removes toxins from the body, renourishes the body, and balances the body as well.  Hormone levels tend to rise to levels seen in younger people.  All of this also impacts or influences another aspect of anti-aging, which is the subject of this article.  I will call it the etheric hypothesis of aging. 




This theory states that, in fact, human beings are etherically-powered.  This means that although we absolutely require many nutrients, food calories, air to breathe and water to drink, there is another level of our being that does not depend directly upon these chemical substances.  Instead, we depend on a flow of a subtle form of energy that may be called life energy, vital energy or etheric energy.  It has also been called vital force, adaptive energy, chi, qi and other names throughout history.

This hypothesis is not new at all.  In fact, it is discussed often in some healing sciences including such as chiropractic and traditional naturopathy, and others.  Nutritional balancing is just the latest in a long line of natural therapies to make use of the same hypothesis.

According to this hypothesis, babies are born with a large supply of this etheric energy.  It slowly runs down as we age.  If we live well and remain well-nourished and well-rested, the etheric reserves last a long time.  However, many factors can deplete our etheric reserves such as stress, traumas, malnutrition and having our bodies out of balance in various ways.  These tend to shorten our lives significantly. 

When the amount of etheric flow decreases to a certain level, the body simply cannot rebuild its tissues and organs fast enough to overcome the normal wear and tear of daily living.  The result is called aging, disease and ultimately death.  This is the essence of the etheric or vital force hypothesis of aging.




This is the idea that as certain conditions within our bodies are fulfilled or achieved, more etheric energy, life force, vital force or chi can flow into and through the body.  This energy will restore protein synthesis by our DNA.  As this occurs, the more rapid and more accurate protein synthesis can actually reverse some or even all of the aging process.




The key to enhancing etheric energy in the body is that there are several sources of etheric energy that we can utilize.  The main three are:

1. Intrinsic etheric.  This is the etheric we are born with.

2. Environmental etheric.  This is etheric energy found in our food, water, air and certain locations.  We can absorb some of this through our diet, breathing, and where we live.  We will absorb much more of it if the body is kept in balance and healthy.

3. New etheric.  This is etheric energy in the environment that we can draw into the body through the Pushing Down Exercise described on this website.




            Many factors can be used to enhance etheric energy in the body.  Since ancient times, these methods have included special diets, along with herbs, prayers, chanting, and other methods.

Nutritional balancing science is more modern, developed only in the past 50 years.  Dr. Eck, the founder of this science, discovered that to enhance health people’s needs are different than they were even a generation ago.  He did not know about etheric energy, and I have continued his research.

So far (September 2015), the factors that work best to 1) conserve our intrinsic etheric, 2) enhance absorption of environmental etheric, and 3) enhance absorption of new etheric energy include:


1. Much more rest and sleep.

2. Stress reduction.

3. Removing about two dozen toxic metals and removing hundreds of toxic chemicals from our bodies.

4. Avoidance of toxins of all types.  This generally includes avoiding:

A. Most all pharmaceutical drugs unless absolutely needed.

B. All recreational drugs, alcohol, and most over-the-counter drugs.

C. Exposure to other toxic substances such as insecticides, pesticides, solvents, thousands of food chemicals, and others.

5. Restoring dozens of vital nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and perhaps many other chemicals needed by the body.

6. Deep breathing to obtain more oxygen.

7. Hydrating the body properly with the correct type and amount of water.  We find that only spring water is best for long-term use.  Carbon-filtered tap water will usually work, although sometimes this is not of good enough quality.

8. Balancing the body chemistry in a precise way. The proper method to assess and monitor this delicate process is a properly performed hair mineral analysis and a properly designed nutrition program based upon it.  The program involves the use of about eight to ten nutritional supplements that must be recommended properly.  The details of these programs are the subject of many other articles on this website.

9. Making the body much more yang in macrobiotic terms.  This means strictly avoiding raw food diets, smoothies, vegetarian diets, eating sugar and other yin foods, activities and attitudes.  Note that raw foods and even a vegetarian diet may help one’s health temporarily, but over time it will make the body more yin, and this is deadly.  I have found this repeatedly to be true.

            10. Retaining one’s sexual fluids as much as possible.

11. Eliminating chronic infections of all types using nutritional balancing, and not other methods such as herbs, drugs, or even colloidal silver and natural products.

12. Structural correction with chiropractic and soft tissue correction may also be needed.

13. I have found that other procedures such as colon cleansing with coffee enemas, and near infrared lamp sauna therapy are also extremely helpful today for most people.

14. The pushing exercise is absolutely needed to bring in new etheric energy.(see the Pushing Exercise article.)


Restoring etheric energy, or etheric reset, is the secret to the entire nutritional balancing program, and is why it works as well as it does.

This seems fantastic and impossible to most medical doctors, and to most holistic doctors as well, but it is true.


What is wrong with just eating a good diet and taking basic supplements?  The diet needs to be correct for today, not just “good”.  The diet also needs to be adjusted depending upon one’s oxidation type.

In addition, much more etheric energy is found in and can be obtained from eating certain foods such as eggs, meats, cooked vegetables and whole grains, though not wheat as much today.  Eating fruit, beans, sugars of all kinds, nuts and seeds does not bring in nearly as much etheric energy, so these foods are not nearly as good for this reason alone.  It does not matter how nutritious they are.

Just taking random supplements will not balance the body chemistry.  In fact, random nutritional supplementation can make things worse.  It always makes the body more yin, for example.  As a result, using supplements as remedies does not bring in nearly as much etheric energy as does delicately balancing the oxidation rate and the major mineral ratios as revealed on a properly performed hair mineral analysis.


Why not just do yoga and follow their recommendations for a long life?  Dr. Eck found that today the needs and the condition of our bodies are very different than they were several thousand years ago when yoga, acupuncture, Ayurveda and other Oriental sciences were developed.  As a result, following these sciences today does not work nearly as well as it once did.  In fact, many people become injured with yoga because the bodies are so tense and not as strong today.  For more on why I do not recommend yoga, read Yoga – Its Benefits and Problems.

Also, herbs used in these sciences are somewhat toxic today.  I am not sure of all the reason why, but that is my experience with most herbs, especially the Chinese and Ayurvedic ones.  For more on this, read Herbs.

Vegetarian diets that some gurus recommend just do not work as well, either.  In fact, they are harmful today.  For more on this, read Vegetarian Diets and The China Study – A Book Review.

Now let us examine etheric resetting of the DNA in more detail.




            Essentially, etheric resetting activates protein synthesis within all cells of the body. This goes far beyond activating the thousands of enzyme systems or nourishing the body.  It is directly working at the level of the DNA and protein synthesis throughout the body. 

As the proteins are synthesized faster and in larger quantities, they replace damaged proteins, enzymes and cells much faster.  This process then causes and/or enhances the removal of toxic metals, toxic chemicals and biological toxins such as infectious organisms or all types. 

By a feedback process, this further enhances the absorption of etheric energy, speeding the process along.  So, in essence, etheric resetting causes a speeding up of all metabolic regenerative processes.


Is increasing etheric the same as increasing the oxidation rate? The two are related, but they are not the same at all.  Increasing etheric activity is anabolic or builds up the body, and it tends to increase the oxidation rate.  If one has enough etheric energy flowing through the body, as babies usually do, the oxidation rate will be a little fast.  However, the oxidation rate is also influenced by many other factors, at times, so the two do not always correlate.

For example, many young children today have a slow oxidation rate even though their etheric energy level is quite high.  Everyone is born with high levels of etheric reserves.  The slow oxidation state may occur because these children also have high levels of toxic metals and toxic chemicals in their tissues, and because they are very stressed and usually quite nutritionally deficient.  As these blockages or negative health factors are removed, their oxidation rate speeds up, often rather easily, because they have plenty of etheric regenerative ability.

Conversely, some people have a fast oxidation rate at age 60 or older, an age when the etheric energy is definitely beginning to become depleted.  This unusual phenomenon is also due to the presence of toxic metals and toxic chemicals, and nutritional imbalances.  However, in this case, the stress that results from these biochemical imbalances causes an alarm reaction that temporarily increases the oxidation rate due to excessive sympathetic nervous system activity.  As older people remove their toxic metals and toxic chemicals using a nutritional balancing program, their oxidation rate generally settles down to a slower rate since there is less etheric energy available for protein synthesis and regeneration of the body tissues.

If, however, an older person stays on a nutritional balancing program for 5 or more years, he or she may remove enough toxic metals and chemicals, and restore nutrition enough that the oxidation rate begins to speed up slightly, once again, due to a higher level of vitality, adaptive energy or etheric energy that may become available to the body.  This, usually, is minor compared to the etheric reserves of a young baby, so the oxidation rate will not become too fast ever in an older person due to a healing program.  If it does, it is due to stimulation or irritation, not just to healing.




            The process begins at once, as soon as a person begins a nutritional balancing program.  It goes much faster if one does all of the program.  The process begins slowly, in almost all cases, and little by little picks up speed as more toxins are cleared from the body and the nutritional state is improved.

            In fact, one would not want it to go too quickly as this will cause healing reactions that can be unpleasant.  These include flare-ups of old infections as they are resolved, and reactions due to the elimination of stored toxins of all sorts.  These must be moved out of storage in body tissues and placed in the blood, where they move to the liver, kidneys and bowel for final removal from the body.  During this process, the poisons circulate in the blood, and this is generally the cause of most healing reactions.  Most are short-lived and minor.  Also, we notice that standard blood tests are altered during this process.  This scares the medical doctors and some clients, but is no cause for concern.  These include liver enzymes, thyroid hormones, hemoglobin levels, and more.




            The goal is the complete restoration of the body.  That is, if the DNA synthesis of proteins in the body is accelerated enough, this can overcome the pace of normal wear and tear on the body.  As this occurs, a person actually begins to become younger inside.

The process begins in the internal organs, and only shows on the outside much later.  This is the design of the human system, for whatever reason.  So the ultimate goal of etheric resetting is the complete rejuvenation of a human being.

This may sound fantastic, but there are cases of people who have lived to very old ages on earth, such as Enoch and Noah in the bible, as well as many others.  They and others lived to near 1000 years of age.




Nutritional balancing science is an anti-aging science designed for the twenty-first century human being living in a highly polluted world with a depleted food supply, foul air and significant electromagnetic stress, as well.  It is a science that is changing and adapting as new hazards are revealed.

However, most importantly, it is an etheric resetting science.  This means that it has as its ultimate goal the resetting of the protein synthesis mechanisms of the body that can actually de-age the body.  This is entirely different from just giving anti-oxidants, or restoring the mitochondria, or many other anti-aging approaches.
