Introduction to Natural Allopathic Medicine eBook Cover

Dear IMVA, January 2012

Published on January 17, 2012

For those interested in my plans for the future of Sanctuary in Brazil below you will find my design for what will go on there. I am very excited about the possibilities and have made contact with a group of doctors who are looking on my work favorably and are welcoming my Natural Allopathic Medicine to Brazil. I have been publishing only in English but that will change.

I have launched my Facebook IMVA campaign and love the Facebook interface. Amazing how long I resisted entering into social media. Next will start the IMVA Brazil Facebook page and IMVA Spanish one as well so I will soon be broadcasting and interacting with many more people.

I am asking my readers to follow me on Facebook and to help in any way they can.

Many years ago I wrote an essay about using the Internet as a tool for the amplification of human consciousness and it has been my experience that it has increased my emotional, mental and spiritual strength. I think the difference between Internet addiction and positive hard use is the meaning and purpose we bring to our digital lives.

Since we are still in the early years of the digital age we do not know its full potential to affect positive change so I would like to push the pedal to the floor and see what comes. I am willing to spread our work into other languages if anyone wants to work with me with this.

When you read the below please keep in mind that we are not finished with the construction but will soon be able to accommodate a few visitors. I am just beginning to put together a team of healers who will work with me.

Sanctuary Healing Retreats

Learn to diagnose yourself so you can treat yourself and your loved ones! Learn More

At Sanctuary you will be touched by healing hands. You will be touched often—physically as well as spiritually, emotionally and mentally. Sanctuary is a new place in the world offering an encounter with love unlike any you have experienced before. It is a place for noble souls who want to experience the most intense feelings of love that reside in the deepest halls of their innermost hearts.

You will be pampered at Sanctuary. You will receive two massages a day! We are serious about touching you deeply and about helping you recover your health and vitality. Your skin will be covered with the purest form of magnesium chloride imported from Europe before each massage, your pH will be monitored and you will be treated to superfood formulas to jet-propel your return to the best you can be.

You will take natural colonics, run down to the sauna, swim in one of our three natural swimming holes and sit by the river in our Healing Gardens. You will do yoga, emotional release work, meditation, deep breathing and, when wanting to just relax and take in the local beauty, walk through the woods to some of our local waterfalls. At night we do circular dances and take part in other group activities like learning how to listen from a space beyond the mind.

Every two hours you will be offered fruit and vegetable juices and the most delicious natural foods will be available. Açaí with a superfood formula called Rejuvenate is our founder’s favorite.

Everyone enjoys the healing power of mother earth coming to us through the oral and topical use of clay, the pure air and water untouched by human hands—no chlorine or fluoride!

Sanctuary is a place where you will learn a new practice of health that follows the principles of Dr. Sircus’s Natural Allopathic Medicine that you will be able to continue in your own home after your time with us is finished.

You will learn about the most powerful and necessary minerals like iodine and sodium bicarbonate (simple baking soda) in addition to magnesium and other natural medicinals. Our retreats are for learning as well as for relaxing and unwinding and you will meet some interesting people here who are dedicated to helping you be well.

You may contract separately for deeper health practices like acupuncture or therapies of the most profound type, but everyone will be touched deeply by our regular services. Our approach to health touches upon the essential physiological and psychological processes that will maximize the probability that one will recover from their disease.

Therapeutic Healing Touch

The most important way we give love to a baby is through touch. For babies, and the rest of us, love is equated deeply with touch. The most beautiful forms of touch possible are actually healing techniques.

Touch is an activity in itself and is wholly satisfying, healing, and a necessary life experience. Touch in the form of massage, affection, hugs, cuddles and plain pure tenderness diffuses emotional tension. It grounds the entire system and touches our souls. When a person has not been touched in a long while, a simple and tender touch can send him into a flood of tears, for the heart feels the release of tension abruptly.

Love is healing and loving touch is super-healing. Beings of love touch each other, need each other, heal each other.Touch is a powerful way to communicate empathy, friendship, approval, affirmation and love to one another.

Detoxification & Purification

The rules and conditions of life are changing and mere survival is going to be a struggle. Our already toxic world is getting more contaminated and radioactive with modern dentistry and medicine adding significantly to this problem with their use of heavy metals, lethal drugs and radiation. We live in a seriously poisoned world and now with Fukushima bellowing radioactive clouds into the northern hemisphere we have even more to worry about. Sanctuary is the perfect place to learn how to purify one’s body and how to survive on a toxic planet.

Sexual Healing

At Sanctuary we offer healing from sexual wounds, those hurts that are hard to get out of our souls. Twenty five years ago I developed a process which I called HypnoTrance Therapy. During sessions with severely traumatized women I would put them into a trance and follow them by going into trance myself. We would journey together directly back to the time and events of sexual injury with remarkable results. This is offered as a separate healing theme through intense therapy.

Return Visits

Sanctuary is a club that you may join so that whenever you want to come back it is easier and more affordable. Anyone who experiences this taste of heaven will surely want to come back! We have created an island of light and an oasis of love so those who are engaged in the battle of life will want a safe place to retreat to.

Health Support

Support begins before you even get here and continues through our Sanctuary online support group after you leave. Before you arrive we will already know you and be familiar with your particular needs and the health challenges you face.


We offer accommodations for many levels of taste and affordability including the presidential suite with its accompanying office. For the more humble we have a dormitory with bathroom, rooms with the bathroom in the hall, and magnificent suites for all those who fit in-between. For those with private planes we have an airport with a runway big enough to land a jumbo jet only 30 minutes away.

Sanctuary for Souls

Sanctuary is the kingdom of heaven brought to earth—it is just that nice in this nestled valley where two rivers meet just three hours north of Brasilia, the federal capital of Brazil. It is here where we worship human vulnerability because to treasure vulnerable love is the first law of a pure heart. The most important key to finding real love is found in our willingness and ability to recognize and accept our vulnerability.

We are dedicated to the feminine principle and to God and you will find our shrine to Mary the Queen of Heaven when you arrive.

  • Mona

    Dr. Sircus, thank you for all that you do and may Mary the mother of Jesus and the Queen of Heaven continue to bless you and your work. I pray that someday I can go to sanctuary, but more than myself; my sister, who just had a miraculous surgery removing the tumor from Ana Plastic Thyroid cancer. The tumor had put a hole in her esophagus and the surgeon repaired it before closing up. That was two weeks ago. She had a swallow test today. The say she still has a hole. I believe if she would had implemented your bicarb protocol this would have healed. She would have had an alkaline state in which to continue healing the repair. Needless to say our families are not conducive to hearing our directives. Even at 62 my being the last born of a family of 8 still makes me the baby. I am very open to any suggestions on protocols that could help her and stimulate healing. I’m suggesting to her again to at least soak her feet in baking soda. She can not handle bicarb in her stomach tube. In November she was faithful in taking it until the tumor was so big it had started irritating her esophagus. She was afraid of regurgitating and causing burning.
    I have another quick question. I have been doing the iodine, baking soda and magnesium protocol for two months. I have developed a burning, tingling,and numbness in my left thigh. It is almost constant all day and wakes me up in the night. The numbness is odd because although it is numb it itches constantly. My scratching a numb surface has caused havoc with the skin. It now also encompasses the upper area of my thigh to the lower part of my torso. I do not want to ever stop my protocol which consists of 3 tbs.of bicarb 1 tsp each, 3 times a day…1 dropper full of iodine,(separated 3 times a day of 2% nascent), as well as vitamin C, 1 large tsp twice a day…sometimes only once a day. I’m suppose I should ween myself one at a time but I’m not sure. Thank you again for all that you do. God Bless and guide you. Mona

      Dear Mona,
      So sorry to hear about your sister and yes, Dr. Sircus would recommend that she get onto his protocol. Its so hard to convince reluctant family members but I hope you can do it. She likely needs magnesium and also iodine, but complete instructiions would have to come from Dr. Sircus directly.

      For you, three tbsp. of sodium bicarbonate per day is over the maximum limit for your age. Overage 60 the recommended maximum dosage is 3 half teaspoons per day. This is because as we age our bodies don’t metabolize as rapidly as when we are younger and smaller dosages are needed of most supplements and meds……unless you are treating a cancer and that should be done under supervision of a qualified health care provider. Do you check your pH daily to be sure it is not going over 7.4? I would suggest cutting back on the sodium bicarbonate to see if things improve.

    Dr Sircus, if a person is growing fibroid tumors in their thigh, what would you recommend? Oh and please keep us updated on Sanctuary. Also I also wanted to mention that I am thrilled that you have embraced social media so we can see what you are doing and saying to teach us in real time. Lastly a couple of things, one is did you join There is a section there where you can create your own airline of sorts. That way maybe a whole lot of your followers me included can come and visit sanctualy on a healing vacation with out being probed, molested or radiated!!
    ( in fact everyone on earth should join) Also are you in touch with Dr Lima in Panama? She put out a notice that she has created a new social media site, maybe you should be a presence there also, so you can continue to get the word out to everyone everywhere. Thanxs again !! Never stop teaching us all!!!

    • Claudia – IMVA Staff


      Thanks for your comments!

      I am guessing that the tumors you are describing on your thigh are soft tissue sarcomas or lipomas? Dr. Sircus’ full protocol for ancer and alkalinazion should be looked into. Most conventional treatment would use surgery to remove the tumors then radiation.

  • The Natural Therapists should guide modern man to immediately find an available time for a natural treatment. The busy life on medium and large centers, industrialized food, unnatural foods, foods with few minerals and vitamins, preservatives, pesticides and chemicals in food, lack of spiritual connection or
    a reunion with the Supreme Creator , and disconnection of man with nature. All these are factors that are making modern humanity to have a great imbalance in your life and in your health.. ..

    Sounds incredible to me and I surely wish that I was able to be able to come and see it for myself. I could use some healing for sure. I wish you the best and keep up the writing. I enjoy and learn from your letters. Tony
