The goal of these newsletters is to provide you with far
more than updates on my books and movies, I want to
offer information that can make a positive difference in
your life and the lives of your family and friends. I offer
contests to be characters in my novels because I want
you to feel a part of my work. I answer every e-mail I
receive and reply personally because you deserve a
personal reply. Yes, it is very time consuming, but it's
worth it to me, plus I meet so many individuals with
important information to share. If you find these
newsletters of value, then I encourage you to have
friends and family sign up (under NEWSLETTER) at
Enjoy the newsletter, there are some important items

Parkinsons Update: Steve Alten to undergo experimental treatment
As most of you know by now, I was diagnosed with
stage one Parkinsons 3 years ago. Through an
answered prayer and a gift from a bone marrow
specialist, I have been given an opportunity to undergo
a new stem cell process that can potentially remove
the symptoms of this degenerative disease and
possible be a cure. The process uses an approved
drug to release adult stem cells from my bone
marrow, which then seek out where they are needed
(laymen speak for a lot of tested medical science).
The physician has used the treatment on seven other
patients with advanced symptoms who are in their
seventies and eighties and the results registered a
60% overall improvement in motor skills and reduced
tremors. I am the first young stage one patient and we
are hoping for some amazing results. The treatments
begin June 14th and will be delivered every other
week for six weeks. I wanted you to know about them
for two reasons. First, you are part of my extended
family. Second, if this works, then it represents a real
breakthrough that can help your loved ones as well.

Living Tips: Cancer update from Johns Hopkins:
Every person has cancer cells in the body. These
cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until
they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell
cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in
their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are
unable to detect the
cancer cells because they have not reached the
detectable size. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more
than 10 times in a person's lifetime. When the
person's immune system is strong the cancer cells
will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and
forming tumors. When a person has cancer it
indicates the person has nutritional deficiencies .
These could be due to genetic, but also to
environmental, food and lifestyle factors To overcome
the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet to
eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day and
by including supplements will strengthen the immune
system. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and
radiation will often reduce tumor size. However
prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not
result in more tumor destruction. An effective way to
battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not
feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
CANCER CELLS FEED ON sugar substitutes like
NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, all made with Aspertine.
Table salt has a chemical added to make it white.
Use Bragg's aminos or sea salt. Milk causes the body
to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal
tract. Cancer feeds on mucus . By cutting off milk and
substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells
are being starved. Cancer cells thrive in an acid
environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best
to eat fish, and a little other meat, like chicken. Meat
also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones
and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to
people with cancer. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an
oxygenated environment. Exercising daily and deep
breathing help to get more oxygen down to the
cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means
employed to destroy cancer cells.
1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave. We should not be
heating our food in the microwave using plastic
containers. This especially applies to foods that
contain fat. The combination of fat, high heat, and
plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately
into the cells of the body. Instead use glass, such as
Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating

NEW SEGMENT : Edible Organic Yard
Since being diagnosed with Parkinsons, I decided to
grow organic fruit trees in my backyard. It's frightening
how much pesticides are absorbed in our fruit we buy
in stores, and these are cancer-causing agents. The
trees have really been a blessing, it's a great feeling
being able to go into your back yard and pick a fresh
banana, mango, strawberry, peach, or orange. What's
surprising is that you don't need a lot of room! I
recently met BILL MEE, perhaps the most
knowledgeable organic fruit tree grower in Florida. Bill
has generously agreed to contribute a monthly article
to these newsletters. Click on the below link to read
installment. I urge you to contact Bill. With very little
investment, you can soon have fresh fruit trees without
the cancer-causing pesticides. And NOTHING in
grocery stores tastes as good!
Joke of the Month
A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their
local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto
the green when he sees a long funeral procession on
the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing,
takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows
down in prayer. His friend says: "Wow, that is the most
thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You
truly are a kind man." The man replies: "Yeah, well we
were married 35 years."
