John Bardaro in 2003 — Years before Our Grand Opening —Visits Our Hygiene Homestead: “Don’t Be Wary! Be Aware!”
I am writing this letter of gratitude on July 1st, 2003, from the little veranda of the home whereI have lived for the last 8 days at God's Guest House (in 2006, renamed “Our Hygiene Homestead in TheWoods”), directed by Victoria BidWell. From this vantage, one sees GREEN LIFE EVERYWHERE! Bushes,plants, small evergreens, and large evergreens that absolutely touch the sky! The front grounds are secludedand privatized by natural wood and barrel fences 6 feet high at both sides of the property and in front by 10foot tall, young “arbor vitae” trees, as I am told. In the foreground, beyond this “God’s Little Half Acre,” oneviews all sorts of stately, green trees, and off into the distance, the majestic green Cascade Mountains. Insidethe sanctuary, one dwells amongst an art collection, with a Nature Lover’s theme and reminders everywherethat The Lord has His Hand in this property and its purposes. The colorful setting for rest and relaxation istruly a museum of art. The setting is quiet. The inside of the house is conducive to Rest and Sleep. All is poisedfor the enjoyment of peace of mind and body. Only a truly neurotic person determined not to make anyimprovements whatsoever could make oneself unhappy here!But if one has rest and healing in mind, the care and attention one receives here is beyondreproach. Personal counseling from one of the best in The Natural Hygiene Movement is extreme. Victoria isknowledgeable about all facets of health care and nutrition. And she is a personal teacher par excellence! Formy diet here, I have enjoyed all sorts of proper combinations of fruit and vegetable juices and beverages.Victoria and I even had a Juice Tasting Party one afternoon, during which we imbibed in 5 different vegetable juices, served on the back deck in elegant, little, golden and crystal glasses with cloth napkins, no less! I re-quested The Fresh Juice Diet before arriving. And Victoria was prepared! She served me gourmet delicaciesall the way: smoothies, straight juices, juice combinations, and nut-based beverages.I have learned a great deal here that I can bring home with me: how to undergo an attitudeadjustment and how to restructure my life for the rest and peace to revitalize my nervous system after a careerof teaching college students, and basically, how to conserve my Nerve Energy so that I may lead “A TrueNatural Hygiene Life!” More Rest & Sleep are crucial! Obviously, I recommend Victoria BidWell’s GetWell
StayWell Sanctuary —without reservation. If health, peace, and rest are your goals, there is no finer place onGod’s Earth to find those priceless commodities than at God’s Guest House! And the price you pay, “bydonation for GetWell Friends” is truly a bargain!Victoria recently sent me nearly 20 years of Dr. Shelton’sHYGIENIC REVIEWS. I have beenstudying them, learning so much and receiving so much inspiration! When she asked if I would find a fittingand representative article by Dr. Shelton with which to end this 2 BOOKS IN 1 for all of you, I was honored.Today, I wish to close this “BEST BOOK” with a “THANK YOU!” to Dr. Shelton, to T.C. Fry, to Victoria, fortheir efforts, to ALL of You for supporting the creation of this book.VICTORIA’S NOTES: DON’T BE WARY! BE AWARE!
The Teacher always learns more than the student!John Bardaro knows this, himself! After a career with the military in his youth, he received a Ph.D. in Econom-ics and has been teaching college students in San Francisco. And you can be sure that every student left hisclass with a basic understanding of Natural Hygiene as “The Superlative, Alternative Health Care System!”Since GetWell
StayWell, America! opened shop in 1986, at least twice a year, John has ordered a big box of Hygiene literature in quantity: mostly smaller T.C. Fry booklets, to hand out to his students. You can be surethat he weaved Natural Hygiene into his economic teachings. In performing these acts of dedication, John hasstrengthened his Hygienic lifestyle. Just talking with him last week, he boomed out over the phone: “NATU-RAL HYGIENE IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO!” John’s students may have been introduced to Hygiene; but inJohn’s efforts, he was strengthening his resolve to live Hygienically and became passionate, wanting to help asmany as possible.As gratifying as teaching is, it is also extremely demanding. I recently encouraged Dr. John Bardaro to
