Dear Doctor,

     Your NUTRI-SPEC system has been steadily improving over 
the years, growing ever more objective, more specific, and 
more effective.  Occasionally, however, we come up with an 
improvement which represents a quantum leap in the efficiency 
and efficacy of our clinical nutrition system.

     We are now enjoying one of those quantum leaps.

     We have totally revised your QRG protocol for analyzing 
your patients' test patterns.


- Your QRG analysis is simpler and faster.

- You will be able to make supplementation recommendations      
  with absolutely no doubt about exactly what supplements a
  patient needs, and also no doubt about exactly what quantity
  of each supplement to recommend.  With these refinements to   
  your system all ambiguities are eliminated.  Every one of     
  you will make exactly the same recommendations that we or     
  any other NUTRI-SPEC practitioner would make.

- You can now balance each patient's metabolism far more        
  quickly than ever before.

- With just these few refinements in your analysis you have     
  the clinical power to achieve phenomenal results with         
  NUTRI-SPEC while giving your patients far fewer supplements   
  than you needed before.

     The revised Test Results Form, along with the completely 
re-done QRG is now available.  One will be automatically sent 
to you with your next order.  As always, you may photo copy 
the Test Results Form in quantity for your own use.  Or, if it 
is more convenient for you, just order a pad of 50 from us.

     An important part of the improvement in your NUTRI-SPEC 
system is the addition of 2 new products, Formula EW and 
Sodium Glycerophosphate.  The protocol for the use of these 
two new supplements is built into your new QRG analysis -- so 
-- let us take the rest of this letter and perhaps the next 
several letters and give you the "why" behind all these 
exciting improvements.

1.  You will now adjust the urine pH as per the specific 
gravity just as you have adjusted the saliva pH in the past.

     Why are we adjusting the urine pH?  The rationale is 
similar to the saliva pH adjustment.  We find that many of the 
electrolytes and other substances that influence the urine pH 
are present in the urine in concentrations which parallel the 
specific gravity.

     What this means is that our evaluation of urine pH can be 
greatly influenced by (and can be distorted by) nothing more 
than the patient's state of hydration.  Another way to say 
this is that a person's urine pH (and the surface tension and 
specific gravity) can be altered dramatically by nothing more 
than either drinking or not drinking a glass of water in the 
hours immediately preceding your tests.  The change in  urine 
pH due to the patient's state of hydration has virtually 
nothing to do with what is going on in the patient's 
metabolism.  Therefore, we want to eliminate the hydration 
influence on the urine pH so that we have an adjusted urine pH 
which is specifically indicative of the metabolic end products 
which influence urine pH.

2.  You will be calculating and entering on your patient's 
Test Results Form a new test parameter which we call the 
oxidation index.

     What is the oxidation index all about?   We are following 
here the lead of Emmanuel Rivici (on whose anabolic/catabolic 
paradigm our anaerobic/dysaerobic imbalance is based).  Rivici 
adjusted all his urine chemistries for the specific gravity.  
This was done for the same reasons we just explained with 
regard to the adjusting of the urine pH.  Only by eliminating 
the transient influences of the patient's state of hydration 
can we get a true picture of what metabolic end products are 
being dumped into the urine.

     This applies to all the substances resulting from protein 
hydrolysis as well as from carbohydrate hydrolysis and the 
products of fatty acid oxidation.

     When the oxidation index of the urine is combined with 
the surface tension we get a very clear picture of what is
                            - 3 -

going on in the patient's oxidative metabolism.

3.  The final calculated test result to be entered on your 
Test Results Form is the respiratory rate minus the breath 
hold divided by 5.  This is a test that you have been using as 
part of your glucogenic/ketogenic analysis.  We find that 
since this is such an excellent indicator of acid/alkaline 
shifts at the systemic level, this test has application to 
many of the imbalances.

4.  We have deleted the cough reflex from our routine test 
procedure.  This test has been shown to only occasionally give 
useful information.  So -- let us streamline our procedures.

     With these few changes you now have a Test Results Form 
which gives you all the information you need to thoroughly 
analyze each patient as regards the 5 metabolic imbalances.

     Let's look at a quick run-down of the changes in your QRG 
analysis.  The first thing you will notice is that you will no 
longer find an imbalance and immediately try to determine what 
supplements the patient needs.  Instead, you will now evaluate 
all 5 metabolic balance systems first, before you give any 
consideration to what supplements and diet the patient needs.  
This is a further way to streamline your analysis.  We have 
built into the new QRG protocol the means to prioritize 
imbalances such that the analysis goes much more quickly, and, 
so that you either recommend far fewer supplements for your 
patient, or your patient can begin to cut back on 
supplementation far sooner.

     Now you are going to have some fun.

     You are going to be able to control each patient's body 
chemistry with specificity you never dreamed possible.  You 
are going to be able to move their metabolism in whatever 
direction is needed with amazing power and ease.  You see, up 
until now we have been holding back on you.  We have taught 
you how to find and correct metabolic imbalances, and then 
have tied one arm behind your back.

     We have limited you to recommending piddly doses of the 
most biologically active NUTRI-SPEC supplements.    We have
had you fooling around with 10 drops of this and a 1/4 
teaspoon of that for years, when in actuality most of your 
patients have needed many times that dosage.  Now, with the 
new QRG, we are setting you free to give your patients the 
supplements they need and in whatever dosage is required.

     Why have we been holding you back?  Because your 
NUTRI-SPEC supplements have such potent biological activity
                            - 4 -

that the potential has always been there for major harm if 
used inappropriately.  We have spent many years striving to 
work out the exact protocol for all your supplements.  We now 
have a system of checks and balances worked into your QRG 
analysis such that you can give the doses necessary to break 
your patients' abnormal test patterns with assurance that you 
are not going to exacerbate or cause other metabolic 

     Here is an example of what used to happen all too often.  
You test a patient and find, for example, an anaerobic 
imbalance.  You recommend Oxy B, A, A+ and the anaerobic 
dietary recommendations along with the NUTRI-SPEC Fundamental 
Diet.  Your patient complies perfectly.  You do a follow-up 
test within a week just as you are supposed to.  In three or 
four weeks nothing has changed.  The patient is still as 
anaerobic as ever and there has also been no subjective 
improvement in the patient's symptoms.  You and the patient 
are frustrated and disappointed.

     Did you do something wrong?  Absolutely not.  You did 
everything perfectly.  The only problem was that you only gave 
the patient the minimal dose of Oxy A+, 10 drops, twice daily.  
Analyzing that same patient with the new QRG you would have 
found that initially 60 drops of Oxy A+ was needed.  When 
taking the proper dose of A+ the patient's tissue pH and 
membrane permeability would have begun to change immediately 
and show significant improvement within days.  On the first 
follow-up test you would probably have been able to decrease 
the dosage somewhat already and by the end of a month the 
patient would be singing your praises for the dramatic 
improvement in symptoms, while you would be pleased to see an 
equally dramatic improvement in the objective test pattern.

     Or, how about the patients that used to have you chasing 
your tail?  You found on the first test a metabolic acidosis 
and recommended Oxy B plus the bicarbonates, citrates, and 
di-phosphates.  At some point the patient showed an anaerobic 
imbalance on a follow-up.  You then added the Oxy A and A+.
On the very next test, however, the patient now showed a 
dysaerobic test pattern, and you didn't know where to go from 

     What was the problem?  The problem was that the acidosis 
was over-treated and the anaerobic test pattern was only an 
artifact of the alkalizing supplements that were continued too 
long.  Then, the dysaerobic imbalance that showed up was 
solely the result of the Oxy A and A+ which was never needed 
at all.  The new QRG protocol has all the checks and balances 
included so that you know exactly when to decrease the 
supplements and when not to chase a new test pattern.
                            - 5 -

     With your new QRG the analysis of the 5 Fundamental 
Balance Systems takes literally less than two minutes.  Once 
the imbalance has been determined the fun really begins.  The 
rest of the QRG is like a treasure hunt to find exactly the 
supplements you need to move that patient's body chemistry.

     So, the analysis is much faster, while the supplement 
selection takes somewhat more time.  But -- then the 
correction of your patient's metabolic imbalances and the 
corresponding increase in their adaptative capacity comes very 
quickly.  The patient will be able to begin reducing 
supplementation often within the first week.  The imbalance 
patterns should be thoroughly broken in almost all cases 
within three or four weeks.  Your patient will be dancing in 
the streets and flooding your office with referrals.

     We can say this with such confidence not only because of 
the specificity built into the new QRG but because of the two 
amazing new products that you now have to offer your patients.  
Let us discuss these new supplements now.

     Consider your new Formula EW (which stands for 
electrolyte-water).  This supplement is concentrated glycerol 
mixed with a little vitamin E.  It has a powerful impact on 
the movement of electrolytes and water from one body fluid 
compartment to another.  It not only influences fluid dynamics 
but influences membrane permeability.

     You are going to learn to love this new product very 
quickly.  Glycerol does so many good things for so many people 
you will be amazed over and over again at the changes you see 
in patient's test results and in a wide diversity of symptoms.

     All the clinical benefits of glycerol are attributable to 
its two major properties:

- It quickly permeates all three body fluid compartments (the 
plasma, the interstitium, and the cytoplasm), carrying sodium, 
potassium, chloride and all the other electrolyte buffers and
other solutes along with biologically activated water in 
accord with physiological demand.

- It binds with and neutralizes the free fatty acids that are 
the primary cause of the aging process that results from free 
radical peroxidation -- particularly the abnormal fatty acids 
with conjugated double bonds which most accelerate the aging 

     Here are some of the common benefits Formula EW will give 
your patients:

                            - 6 -

1.  Increase low BP and decrease high BP.

2.  Improve circulation

3.  Eliminate any tendency to cold, clammy perspiration.  
Eliminate any tendency to chills; raise low body temp.

4.  Decrease excess protein catabolism; increase depressed 
serum albumin levels; decrease excess substances resulting 
from protein hydrolysis.

5.  Decrease serum esterase and amylase enzymes which cause 
excess catabolism.

6.  Decrease RBC Rouleaux formation and blood sludge.  Restore 
normal coagulation time to the blood.

7.  Heal GI ulceration by eliminating the excess chloride 
fixation to abnormal fatty acids in the GI mucosa.

8.  Eliminate bloating due to duodenal fluid accumulation.

9.  Elevate depressed WBC count:  decrease lysis of WBCs.

10. Eliminate interstitial fluid retention.

11. Correct an intercellular alkalosis; correct a systemic 
acidosis; decrease alkaline pain.

12. Restore moisture to the skin by moving fluid back into 
subcutaneous tissues.

13. Decrease elevated cholesterol; reduce atherosclerosis; 
prevent thrombosis.

14. Eliminate any tendency to insomnia.

     Not bad for one supplement.

     Your second new supplement is Sodium Glycerophosphate.
This supplement has most of the same properties as the Formula 
EW with the additional kicker of the glycerol being combined 
with sodium and phosphate which has an impact on increasing 
the basal metabolic rate and increasing a person's work
