Sue Visser is a health researcher, product developer and passionately devoted to encouraging people to help themselves to a healthy life.
Her book, “Illustrated Guide to Healthy Happy Eating – For All Blood Types,” is still available from her for less than one-quarter of the current Internet price (including postage).
Sue’s enthusiasm for blood type eating has resulted in a wealth of practical information. She shares this freely with everyone by means of magazines, newspapers, radio broadcasts and workshops. Sue also shows us how to find our own cures in the kitchen for common ailments like coughs and colds, hormonal upsets, digestive disorders, arthritis or aches and pains.
Q. When did you become interested in improving your and others health, and what was the impetus that drove that interest to a passion you have devoted your life to?
A. When your baby son nearly dies from a series of respiratory collapses and antibiotics make it worse, you wake up. Homeopathy saved the day, with a few white pills that matched the symptoms. Anton is now a towering slab of muscle in his 30s. He eats for blood type A and so does his father. When they don’t, they complain of fatigue and have learned that they are different from O type Mom and daughter Vivienne. (Thank you Peter D’Adamo for that!)
The black Zulu people called me “Sangoma” as a child. They saw something in me that they recognized as an innate healer. After my husband, Jim, became ill from a bacterial infection and the stress of feeding the family from hand to mouth took its toll, he started to get paralysis attacks and painful joints. He recovered with a concoction of calcium lactate and cider vinegar. In no time I had formulated an ideal supplement and a few years later it showed up in a survey as being the best formulation at the lowest price per dose. It paid off, with a healthy family and now we all walk our talk. I have been accused of being too enthusiastic, too passionate by those who cannot keep up with me.
Q. With private sellers receiving $195 for your book, how do you feel about that, since you receive no part of that money that could be used to aid your research?
A. Good luck to them! That is nothing compared to doctors who are paid to “practice” on people and then I am asked to sort out the mess. I have devoted my life to research and have a good working knowledge of medical matters. I test out theories, trial formulations, claims and cures constantly even at my own expense to get to grips with how a human being ticks. To me it’s not about making money from sick people and causing them to get sicker. It’s not about claiming your line of products to be the cure-all. Sooner or later the vendors of “snake oil” trip over their own shoelaces. People feel so bad because they eat so bad. I tried to change that. The book’s a piece of me.
Q. In today’s world seemingly filled with the philosophy of “get what you can,” you don’t. On your website you freely share articles on how to improve our lives. The topics range from a deworming recipe to how food can make us feel sexy. Why do you offer so much of your research for free?
A. I take no anxious thought for my life: what I should eat or what I wear. We are provided for – however, whereever. I take more anxious thought about gluten, transfatty acids and too much sugar! Being a community worker, I have never received direct payment. My life is about love and service.
Q. What’s it like working with small African villages, knowing when you leave, you leave the residents with the ability to increase their chances for survival.
A. You don’t. Most people are stubborn, lazy, unappreciative and more interested in free hospital medicines. They spend their pennies on white bread and bottles of Coke because they try to copy us. Every 30 seconds somebody dies of malaria somewhere in the world. But many die every second in ignorance of their Godliness. They kill each other too, just because of a difference of opinion. Can medicinal plants change that? Bill Gates set the stage by trying to provide artemenisin, a synthetic version of the plant extract to help the situation. The mosquitoes became resistant to it. But not to the plant itself. We also use olive leaves. Both these herbs deal with microbes and parasites. I put together a remedy and included them with other anti-microbials. Over the years I have given black people the parasite remedy if they don’t feel well. When they come back and demand more, I get curious. I was told that they had been HIV positive, but are now HIV negative. Yes, there is a big parasite problem!
