Hi Dr. Vickery,

I have been taking the Sea Plant Minerals for several years and am very happy with that product (it has helped with my fibrocytic breasts). Now I am looking into Platinum Plus for my 15 year old daughter who has digestive problems and has lots of allergies. I am a Registered Dietitian and am trying to understand how Platinum Plus works - I read how the unique combination of essential amino acids plus other nutrients help the body make digestive enzymes necessary for protein digestion/absorption/utilization but I don’t really get how that happens. Also, how does that process compare with simply taking digestive enzymes with meals? I also wondered what your take is on monitoring the body's urine pH as we tend to be overly acidic.

I love how you are a Christian Tithing organization. Have you ever read Randy Alcorn’s book called Money, Possessions and Eternity?

Many thanks for your help!

Dear Ms. S.:

Thanks, VSPM is great for the female (and male) machinery! Platinum Plus is the number one thing for digestion—that is how it works. Since 90+% of people today are amino acids deficient, our poor Ole pancreas, the number one stressed organ in the body, DOES NOT HAVE THE AMINO ACIDS TO MAKE THE DIGESTIVE ENZYMES. Digestive enzymes are NEVER as good as what the person can synthesize for themselves. In thousands of cases, digestive enzymes usually end up failing because of pH etc. The final analysis of pH is when the body is functioning properly and usually ends up normal without un–natural manipulations.

Hi Dr. Vickery,

I don’t know if you will find this until Monday but just in case…

I’m wondering if there is something you can recommend for the pain while I wait for the program to arrive. The pain is extremely intense at night. It there almost all the time during the day, sometimes just feels like a dull ache other times sharp. But at night it really gets bad. I haven’t had an uninterrupted night’s sleep in several months. It starts in the front shoulder…feels like a drill…goes all around the deltoid…travels into the clavicle and back down my arm until just above my wrist.

Feels like some little demon in there…and after speaking to you yesterday…I now know that it is !! It seems to intensify when I recline and my arm is at my side...once the pain starts I can barely life my arm to change positions…I have to use my left arm to help raise my right and place it on a pillow.

I just wonder if there is anything you could recommend…short of a frying pan to knock me out !!!!!!! (she writes with a smile !! )

Thanks so much.

Having been completely healthy and active allll my life this is getting depressing…but no worries…I’m not one to lay down and give up !!

Look forward to any suggestions.

I have used some natural pain spray that warms up my skin and has a sort of menthol…but I think the heat just takes my mind off the pain and then when it wears off…it still hurts…

Warm regards



Lucky I had time this weekend to take a look! Simple aspirin every four hours would be a fairly safe start. You have a focal bursitis with a brachial neuritis. We do not deal with pain relievers because the amino acids themselves have pain-relieving action, but you have not received them as yet. Generally we recommend that people stay with the pain killer that works for them and will certainly discontinue as the pain retreats. Unless, it is one of the recent harmful drugs in the news.

Hello Dr Vickery,

I am so very sorry for my negligence in thanking you for the bottle of Sea Aloe Gold. I do thank you for this. I was at the Max Conference and it took me a couple of weeks to be able to sit down and look at the information you sent along with it. After reading the material, I had lots of questions. You mention the ICV a lot and you tested me and said that I may have a virus in the ICV, spine, head and I believe gallbladder. You also mentioned my protein deficiency. My question is, is the Sea Aloe able to address this or in combination with the Platinum Plus? Also, what is the protocol and for how long?

I was puzzled and wanted to see if I could get my head around what you were saying before I wrote to you but realize that maybe I should just write and ask my questions.

I enjoyed the Max conference. This company is one of the outstanding ones. I did not get the opportunity to meet with anyone at the corporate level to question if they would consider that some people are unable to fully benefit from the Max because of the inability to utilize proteins. I believe that you felt that I might not be getting the full benefit of Max because of this.

I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks and ask my questions and re-start some dialog between us.

I hope you have a blessed and joyful weekend.

Dear Ms. S:

The first unique nutrition and our reason for being is the universal protein problem. It is a discovery that I made and almost stand alone with even after 25 years. It is like the conductor of a symphony who oversees many musicians each having a particular part to play so that the end result is beautiful music ( health). Since this is the key we have been besieged with more and increasingly severe conditions such as celiac disease which is addressed by combinations which always include Platinum Plus and Sea-Aloe Gold. Since These people have damaged intake systems. they are deficient in - EVERYTHING. We are now way past the protein problem and measuring ALL of the various nutrients in the cases presented. This is a new dimension in healing and health.

I read your article about backpain and I am curious about the last part when you say: “They were treated manually – by hand with a method developed by Dr. Vickery. No Chiropractic or Osteopathic manipulations (which can precipitate surgery). No drugs were ever used.”

My question is…Can you explain what this hand method is? I have an SI joint problem, no previous trauma or accident; just a hypermobile joint. Is this hand method something holistic that can be learned by a family member helping a patient with SI joint problem?

Lisa H.

Dear Ms. H:

I was speaking of a CCT ( Confirmatory Challenge Test) which sets up the immediate correction of a single or multiple disk lesions. It is a manipulation of the disk without any gross body movement and requires experience in kinesiological testing. It is very simple but I do not think a one time-one person experience is adequate because there is the mechanics and there is the “feel” which takes even professionals some time to master.

A hypermobie joint is usually associated with a muscle-postural imbalance which if not caused by a hidden disk is best addressed by a Chiropractic Applied Kinesiologist. Check your nutrition also as it is the first cause.

Hello Dr. Vickery,

Thank you for replying so fast. But there is one thing I don’t understand, and that is I am from Europe and you write in your privacy notice that you advise people from Europe not to sent personal information to SNC?

I can see why you are confused because of what we call “legal boilerplate.” This is the most applicable part:

I am a bit confused about which fibromyalgia package to order. I have recently had my amalgam fillings removed and am trying to get rid of heavy metals/mercury. I have a huge yeast problem, which is obviously no coincidence. The person recently giving me colonics because of chronic constipation told me that my ileocecal valve is not closing. I have been struggling with food sensitivies/allergies for two years. I have a huge problem with chemical sensitivity, and I basically stay home most of the time because of this. I have been taking your Platinum Plus product for a couple of months now at the recommendation of a nutritionist, and it has helped. I have been on a “yeast diet” and using digestive enzymes, flora, garlic, grapefruit seed extract, etc. This has helped a lot, but I still struggle. My question is this: Would the Sea Plant Minerals or the Sea Aloe Gold be beneficial when I've already tried these other things, and, if so, which one is the “preferred treatment?” To complicate matters, I have reacted to aloe in about seven different supplements. I do not understand if the Sea Plant Minerals can help with ICV and metals quite like the Sea Aloe Gold can. Thanks much for your time and help! Monica

Dear Monica,
This is a multifaceted problem and needs a multifaceted approach. That is what the FM WITH the Sea-Aloe gold is designed for. It covers all the deficienies and gets the diet right FOR BOTH CELIAC AND CANDIDA. This can be fine tuned after the first months. Most people (doctors too) not understanding the problems and not knowing that many nutritional products are not biologically available and cannot get through this MINEFIELD! It also has to enable you to defeat the current drug-resistant SUPERBUGS that farmers and doctors have been constantly creating and which is THE CURRENT BATTLE.
