I have tried this guy's products and thought they were decent. Today I was reading his blog, just by chance and what he was saying made sense about how people are lazy and want a pill for everything. He reports a huge success rate with patients but he says avoid any and all fat. This is stunning, in light of everything that is out there right now on this subject, I don't understand how he hasn't come to rectify this stance yet. I heard even Dr. Andrew Weil is modifying his stance on fat.
I was just wondering if anyone has met Dr. Schulze or could elaborate on his protocols more. Maybe I am missing something but it said right there on the blog, avoid any and all fat.

Red flag number one:
He types with varying degrees of font size. If you can't get your point across using normal uniform text, they you are just trying to market something.
But wait! There's more!
Red flag number two:
Pictures of his face everywhere, he's trying to set himself up as a guru
Red flag number three:
Crazy wild promises (Freedom! Ultimate Health! Fullest Potential!) that when analysed are nothing but vague bullshit.
Red flag number four:
He uses the terms 'superfood' and sells a lot of psuedo-medicines. Woo to the max.
And the final red flag?
Dude is fat.

Sister Karen: I had never heard of Dr. Schulze before today. Now I know that I look like an axe-murderer and, as they say, "it takes one to know one." So let me tell you. I visited his site and that guy scares the hell out of me. I found it creepy that his photo is EVERYWHERE on the site. I felt like I was in North Korea and he was getting his Kim Il Jong on.

Hold on Paleos...I have met the guy, worked and studied under him. Herbs are Paleo. He isn't. He is a maverick healer. Here is where he is right.
Plants have many medicinal properties. Dr. Schultze will teach you how to use them. He is also into you taking control of your health. His products are the best on the market. If you want herbs to augment your health, his stuff is the best you can buy. He even teaches you how to make it yourself and where to get the best sources of raw herbs. He doesn't have to sell you herbs. He is whole foods like we are. I make my own herbs according to his teachings. You can read for free his entire program on the web. Buy his stuff if you are too lazy to make it yourself. Just like pre packaged Paleo products on the market. He is whole foods like we are. His other teachings on hydro therapy and sunlight for an hour a day are great. He ran a health clinic called the "last chance clinic" for 20 years where he worked with "the walking dead." Those that modern medicine said "go and take care of your affairs." He was arrested 2x by the FDA. He has healed many, I met them.
Here is where he is wrong. He is a vegan. "Don't eat anything with a face or comes from a face." I eat the face first. When I studied under him I went vegan for 6 months and started having wet dreams of sushi. That broke me. His diet is 60's veganism. He was always heavy and just recently slimmed a bit. We all have read of the problems associated with veganism. It helped usher in my diabetes.
Here's how to use him. Go read his stuff, take a course from him. Learn how to use older healing modalities and medicinal plants. It will improve your final 10% of health results. It does not weigh more than the 90% of health that I follow but it is beneficial to your paleo program.

Dear Friends, WOW, a tough crowd here! Yeah, if you want perfect, I am not your man. But since my relatives were 300 pound plus Germans, and all dead long before my age, well I think I'm doing pretty good. I'm even down a lot of weight the last few years too. Like all of you, I am in process. But down't throw away my lifes work, or Natural Healing, or Herbal Medicine, Because I'm loud, use a LOT OF CAPS, or whatever you hate about me. My patients taught me a lot. I was very blessed to have them all. Mainly they taught me that you can heal yourself of anything, ANY DISEASE, if you are just willing to change, take responsibility and create a really healthy lifestyle. Remember, Fun is FUNdamental, with everything you do. Eating, Cleansing, Moving, whatever. So make it FUN. Lots of Love, Dr. Schulze

"Dr. Schulze admits that he ???stalked??? many of the greatest Natural Healers of the last century, including the famous European naturopath, Paavo Airola. He trained directly under, and then served an internship with, the great Natural Healer, Dr. Bernard Jensen, at his Hidden Valley Health Ranch."
Is that where the salad dressing comes from?

About 21 years ago I took my daughter to a wellness center to seek treatment for her asthma, which was out of control. Even with three breathing treatments a day and steroids, we ended up in the emergency room once or twice a month, sometimes more. At the wellness center, they prescribed some herbs for her that after 2 weeks, eliminated her asthma. I mean gone, she didn't ever need a breathing treatment again. Since the, she has used an inhaler once in while if she is around lots of animals. I started using Dr. Schultzes products about 15 years ago for my own health and have seen great results...what does this have to do with my daughter? When we were moving, about 8 years after she stopped needing breathing treatments, I found one of the bottles of herbs she had taken. I was quite surprised by the label. It said American Botanical Pharmacy (which is Dr. Schultzes herb company), and it had "Asthma," written in by hand no less. I hadn't realized that the same product line I had been using with so much success had been responsible for changing my daughters life. I can't say enough good about Dr. Schultze and his products. I do agree that it doesn't help his credibility to be overweight and to be somewhat unprofessional with his language though. I think the language is just because he is so intensely passionate about helping people learn to heal themselves.

I have a vegetarian friend who swears by this guy - I hate his website, it looks really low rent and I have used some of his products but never noticed any difference in my health because of it. I feel like he's kind of quacky but that's just my opinion.
Edit to add - I hadn't been to his website in a couple of years until today, he's cleaned that up and made it look more professional at least.

I love Dr. Richard Schulze and have learned a lot from him. It's too bad when people comment who don't know him or his work. I have a huge binder and DVD Disks that outline tennents of his Incurable Program. Sadly I can only use a handful of his products due to my nightshade sensitivity but I still love the products I do use and I beleive they are great for healing. He is the rare person who believes there are no incurable diseases and that caught my soul on fire and helped me to choose life when I was at death's door. I will always love and respect him and I pray for him and his work. I recommend you read his booklets on his blog I especially recommend his Dr. Schulze's 20 POWERFUL STEPS to a Healthier LIFE to newbies. If God forbid you have been told you have an Incurable Disease read his book, There are NO incurable diseases.

Hey guys, Dr. Schulze actually has some pretty great products. I use his Super Food Plus, and it's one of the better herbal supplements i've ever used. My skin gets really soft, and my acne clears up completely. I have to take It in the morning because it gives me so much energy I cant sleep if I take it later. I don't really care about his claims or his diet or his font size. I don't care if he is fat or whatever. I only care about what he made. And I think he did a pretty good job with the Super Food Plus. In fact a superb job!

If you cross reference his info with other natural healer/preacher's you'll see that what he says is nothing new, but very valid. I've used some of his herbs and they worked. With his health history, I would say his success has been superb, regardless of his weight. His weight issue just means he is one of us, no more, no less. The quest for perfect health means constant vigilance, and he is no exception. As far as his language, no biggie, that's his personality, and he doesn't have to be anybody's role model - it's his health regimen that's significant. My only problem is, his stuff is expensive. If I had the money, I would buy more of it, but I don't. He is used to high end clientele and that leaves me to try only some, not all of his products.

From DR. SCHULZE (notice the bold and CAPS)
Friends, WOW, tough crowd here
Anyway, the reason I use a lot of CAPS and BOLD CAPS and sometimes even underlines, bright colors and lots of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!! is . . .
Well, I stand guilty as accused, It is simply a sales technique!
See, your Average Americans is a bit sick, dull and numb, from consuming large amounts of junk food, sugar, alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceutical drugs, street drugs, and on and on and on.
On top of this, the vast majority of my patients were ill, that's why they came to see me. They were sick and in pain.
So whether people are just the typical average numb American hyped up or doped down on the typical American lifestyle, or sick and in pain like my patients, they were distracted. I also found that most people, myself included, do not get things the first time around.
I had many handouts I used in my clinic, and I found that bold, CAPS and even the occasional BOLD AND CAPS let my patients know what I wanted to emphasize. When talking to people, we can raise and lower our voices, use our hands, and use many tools to emphasize importance. In writing, I don't have any of those options.
The bottom line, I did this in my clinic, and do it now in my books, and on my blog, simply to help people heal themselves and get well.
To sell them on an idea, that is so simple That you can heal yourself of ANY ILLNESS, ANY DISEASE Just STOP doing what has made you sick and START doing what will Create Powerful Health
That's what I am selling my friends

I've been using superfoods plus for the past 3 months as part of my personal get healthier plan. I've been aware of his products for probably 13 years and used them briefly in the past. I think the quality of this particular product is superior to anything in the local health food stores (ie raw/organic "alive"...not heated). I feel good; have lost 45 lbs (which has included exercise 6days/wk , watching what I eat, no fast food or pop). Not crazy about his style/approach. I have heard audio clips where I get where people say he's "yelling"; but I ignore all that because I think the product is great. I plan to continue to use this indefinitely. definitely better for you than any vitamin in a bottle

I have not even started on his products yet( they r on the way), but I have decided that I have found my "religion"after reading his blogs. No one dragged me there, I stumbled upon it while I am searching. It s one of few things that makes absolute sense to me. Only thing I am a bit hesitant about is as someone mentioned above , about going vegan 100%. Especially when it comes to myself. But we ll see, it does definitely wanna make me eat less meat at least. Lol. To all those negative Nancys out there : YOU ALL MUST BE CONSTIPATED! To be that negative, stubborn, angry and hateful. Two words: colon cleansing! Lol. Good luck to everyone of you. It s good always to keep an open mind.

I swear by Dr. Schulze's products. I kept my mother in law from bowel surgery with his intestinal formula #1, kept a friend from gallbladder surgery with his kidney/gallbladder cleanse, stopped my day's heart attack with his cayenne powder in hot water, and even brought my dad back from the brink when he later had a stroke and I was told he had 6 months to live and would always be in a vegetative state. I used the brain, heart and cayenne tinctures mixed with powdered cayenne twice a day, and within 40 days, my dad made almost a full recovery (barring some brain damage from the stroke), was walking and talking and lived for 6 years. I had a period that lasted for 45 days. Nothing worked except dr. Schulze female formula. Within four days of taking it, my period stopped. Also, nerve formula works amazingly well for panick attacks, and superfood is the greatest hangover cure. just take ten tablets with some coconut water, and all better. I am not paid for this. I wasn't a believer for a very long time since my mother forced these tinctures on me as a child. But after my long history with his products, I cannot deny the absolute miracle they are.

I have used his super food and I believe it has pretty high Vit B content. It gave my wife a niacin flush and she stopped taking. I continue to take it and my body has adjusted to the niacin flush.
I think his bowel detoxes are very good and they work well. I think that you have to be careful with intestinal formula 1 and take it with food as it causes some amount of acidity at night because of the high content of Harbenero Pepper.
Overall his advise is similar to Dr. Joel Furhman "Eat to live diet". I have been on that diet and it worked well for me. Just difficult to follow. While I am skeptical about the hyperbole and the conspiracy about FDA, I think overall a positive experience with his products.

Someone going by the handle "Dicky" wrote on this series of comments, "...Quack alert...he is not an MD..." (medical doctor). You hapless dolt. You are exactly the sort of True Believer the AMA (American Murder Association) craves and creates with their own very deadly form of quackery. In other words, FDA-approved, billion-dollar, Big Pharma illness-industry quackery. As someone with an MD in Europe, I can assure you with MD-level confidence that the plants and techniques Dr. Schulze is using are extremely effective, having been developed through the highly-respected, non-profit laboratory of Nature. Don't be such a fool. An MD means several things: first, somebody passed a series of exams required to receive such a doctorate degree. Second, they paid a huge sum of money to a school that sells such degrees. Third, well, that's it, there is no third. In other words, there are tens of thousands of MD-holders out there who consistently make terrifying mistakes, maim and even kill patients (by accident, but maimed or dead is still maimed or dead), make decisions based on insurance regulations and profitability, and prescribe meds per incentives from Big Pharma like vacations to Hawaii. It's sickening and it's why your American health industry; and brother, it is an industry; is such a disaster. It's why despite the alleged "advances" in modern medicine, Americans are statistically speaking more dis-eased, than ever before in the history of their great (and ill) nation. This guy might have a goofy website, he might not look or sound like a classically-trained (corporate trained) MD, but that is why you might want to pay attention to him. He uses plants and plants work. They work because of their powerful properties. They work because of the body's ability (having worked together for the entirety of human existence) to utilize said properties. Modern medicine is a holy terror for most illnesses beyond a broken bone. Plants, on the other hand, work wonders. Quack; give me a break. That moniker belongs on the lunatics and profiteers who do things like prescribe radioactive poisoning to an ill person. It's a bit like letting blood to heal a person who is already dizzy (modern medicine about 500 years ago). Dicky, your ignorance will be your demise. Learn something, then speak up.

I used his herbs and miscarried as the result of it. It says on his website all his product are save for pregnancy but it is not true. I was not save for me. IF you are pregnant or nursing stay away from DR Schulze's r products.

I've just been reading some of Dr.Schulze's stuff on the internet, I would admit he sounds dodgy, and like a salesman when it comes to his product. There are somethings about what he mentions that I think can be omitted, i.e supplements can do good to us to a a level of effective results. Its inappropriate of him to point out that other "organic" food isn't organic, example is because they use ETO and that is a bad chemical. Has everyone forgotten that even as basic as the soap that you use to clean your bodies with utilizes bad chemicals??
Moving on, Natural organic food is the way to go, but with the atmosphere that we have nowadays, how can ANYTHING be truly organic or promote organic produce? Juicers? have our ancestors used such a thing? I believe the best way to go about something is to do it yourself, but we are sometimes restricted to how far "doing it ourselves" so using commercial convenience that you trust and is reliable should be sufficient.
For those who have tried Dr/ Schulze's stuff without success, I think you're not listening to the guy. I've been searching and applying natural methods (on my own term and not from this Dr, I only recently came across him) for years and there are times when it doesn't work, I realize that is probably because I don't understand 360 degrees about it, every time I improve my understanding the efficiency gets better. I strongly say, the natural way or natural products, healing or medication is the way to go. I have experienced this myself (this should count as scientific proof)
I avoid Western medicine because I know for a fact that it doesn't promote health of the body. I used to depend on western medication only to find my body more prone to sickness and repetitive cycle of antibiotics and flu and you get the whole picture. A good experience that really pushed me more to believing in natural ways, and not western medications is my FIV diagnosed feline companion who was growing weaker by the day as I was hopeful that the DMSO(if i recall correctly) and vitamin B pills prescribed by the vet would keep his health at bay (at least), but as a result he was purging and looking as OLD as ever, as I was not content with his degeneration I searched on improving his health, and after lengthy research started him on raw food. It was a change, I'm not kidding, he was "young" again, no more croaking voices, depleting body mass, reduced grey hair, more vitality no more purging etc, even though my efforts wasn't concerted or constant, his improvement was huge.
I hope my experience counts to at least get you interested and give natural ways a chance as you have with other methods.

Wow and Wow again. I've used Dr. Shulze's products for over 20 years, have experimented for probably 25 years with all manner of healing modalities, health products...These products are some of the highest quality available; pure, strong and demands some audience participation to really be in a healthy state. Like learning a bit about their body, habits, etc. Most people don't even realize the extent of how poisoned our food chain and environment is, think that it's normal to get sick every winter, summer, spring,...as a society, it seems the norm is to accept disease and to accept our poisoned state. Complacency and reliance on the failed medical institution to provide answers to a broken body rather than be pro-active. I've never seen a 'fat' picture of him...hahaaa...I don't care for his website but find the printed booklets to be highly informative. I'm a 54 year old female in a high degree of health, without a cold for probably 10 years, no flu, no hospitals, no doctors outside of yearly check-in with a holistic doc. I don't think people like his 'in your face' mannerisms. No bullshit and yes he's trying to sell products. He's also trying to sell great products so do yourselves a favor, and be willing to look beyond the bold print.

I love the Echinacea Plus and Super Tonic! It has kept me and my family well. I'm a nurse and keep getting pressured to have the flu shot. Some of my coworkers who take it always end up getting the flu anyway and suffer with colds and bronchitis that they can't shake. Before I found Dr. Schulze I would get at least one bad cold a year and now I take either the Ech Plus and Super tonic or Cold and Flu Shot and get rid of it fast if it comes on at all. It is kind of expensive but it works which is more than I can say of many other things out there.

Step away from the wacko! He's selling a lot of crappy stuff and way overpriced at that. Ginseng? Great if you want insomnia. Psyllium husk? Tear yourself a new one. Other mumbo jumbo herbs that have not been shown to be effective. You really have to be careful when you start self medicating with herbs - you can run into some nasty side effects. He's a very slick salesman. Run! Run away! As fast as you can!

I use all 3 herbal cleanses, went vegan, and lowered cholesterol from 230 to 169 this year (and going lower). No statins. For years, my family uses the cold & flu stuff and it works great. The quality is always consistently good.
[My father-in-law had aortic valve replacement and the (western medicine) Hospital gave him beef dinners before and after!!? Their "nutritionist" put a hi-fat/hi-cholesterol menu in the hospital!]
At least Dr. Schulze (and separately Dr. Esselstyn) are raising awareness... Has lots of free booklets on his Blog- don't buy anything first, just read all his free booklets and Blogs THEN decide. I don't get the hate for this guy, he only claims to help folks help themselves...
