Introductory Information

       As shown above, we are in the Natural Healthcare Concepts Education Business.  This website presents an incredibly important health-related educational report that can probably improve life in remarkable ways for many people living in selected upstate areas of South Carolina.  

     South Carolina citizens are encouraged to review this very valuable "free to review" educational website if they are a natural-born American citizen and have a home or residence address ZIP Code of 296 - - or 293 - - .  This introductory educational website was developed especially for those American citizens.

    The practical value of this remarkable education can be enormous - more valuable than they can even begin to comprehend at this point. 

     This website will introduce a goldmine of  vital healthcare concepts that can enable visitors to see and understand the conventional medical healthcare systems in America much more clearly and much more responsibly than visitors have ever seen them before. 

     One of the purposes of this website is to present some very important basic and fundamental level health concepts to natural-born American adult citizens who are Christian-oriented. 

     This vital education can help these visitors review and understand clearly some healthcare concepts that can be incredibly important and very valuable to these Americans.

     The founder and president of our company, ABC's of Health, Inc., is Lonnie Willoughby, Jr. (Lon Will o bee).  He is the author of this health-related educational report that explains how and why we strive daily to help selected American adult citizens learn how to enjoy a much healthier life than most American adult citizens know how to achieve.

     Read this extensive "free to review" health-related true report as if the quality of your life in future years depends upon this special knowledge - because it really does. 

     This vital special health education can help you protect your precious natural health - and this education is not available anywhere else in this very helpful format

     Lon will not attempt to teach visitors everything they need to know about responsible and sensible healthy lifestyle actions; that is the education business that we are in and we charge an annual club membership fee for those very important and very valuable educational services.  However, Lon will try to encourage and motivate visitors to take a more responsible interest in taking good care of their precious natural health

     He understands clearly that thousands of good American citizens die prematurely each week that passes because they did not have a good opportunity to get educated about the very important health concepts that Lon introduces in this introductory educational website.

     Lon will encourage visitors to understand and accept the challenging and exciting opportunities that are available to help make life in America a healthier life - a life that can be more productive and more rewarding and more enjoyable on a daily basis.

     He carefully developed this revealing healthcare-related report in an autobiographical "storybook fashion" for two main reasons

     The first reason was to present this vital health education in an interesting, informative, and entertaining manner that introduces vital health concepts in an easy to understand manner that will also be easy to remember.  

     The second reason was to inform American citizen adult visitors about Lonnie Willoughby's life in sufficient detail that visitors can get to know him well and develop confidence in his educational abilities. 

     As the author of this true autobiographical health-related report, Lon reveals some of his important formative life experiences to help visitors understand the person that he matured into as he aged over 85 years. 

     You will learn about some of his challenging life experiences that gradually helped him become a very competent natural healthcare consultant, nutrition consultant, and natural healthcare and wellness concepts classroom educator

     Over a period of 40+ years, Lon has learned how to help millions of American adult citizens take much better care of their precious natural health and their vital natural healthcare assets (natural functions in the human body that routinely strive to maintain good health)

     He understands that millions of Americans seriously impede these natural health protecting functions by frequently doing things that interfere with these vital natural healthcare protecting functions.

     These very important natural functions can work more effectively if one learns how to avoid doing harmful things that interfere with them. 

     Lon teaches our healthcare education clients how to avoid interfering with these natural functions, and he also teaches education clients about actions that they can take to enhance these very important natural healthcare functions

     These are copyrighted advanced level natural healthcare concepts trade secrets that are available only to our natural healthcare concepts education clients (our Americans4Justice club members - our A4J club membership opportunity will be explained later).

Confidence in Lon Willoughby

     Throughout this true health-related report, each American adult visitor will need to be considering whether or not the author has believe-ability, credibility, and dependability about the very important health concepts and natural healthcare and wellness concepts that he introduces to American visitors in this health-related report

     If you learn enough about the author that you develop confidence in his honesty and his integrity, and his sense of dedication to his sincere purpose of educating many American adult citizens about vital basic and fundamental level healthcare concepts at no cost ("free to review"), and if you also develop a sense of confidence about his intellect and his extensive knowledge of vital advanced level natural healthcare and wellness concepts, then the health concepts introduced in this "free to review" report can have super beneficial affects on your life - probably throughout the rest of your life

     However, if this true autobiographical report does not enable you to confidently believe that these health concepts and healthcare education concepts are very important valid concepts that you need to know about, this may be an interesting and informative and entertaining health-related report, but you may not get a lot of long-term healthcare benefits from the vital health and healthcare concepts that are introduced herein.

     Understanding those relevant factors, Lon Willoughby has tried to share enough personal information about his life experiences to enable American adult visitors to make those important decisions and judgments about him in a fair-minded, reasonable, and responsible manner. 

     Be patient with the author here; relax, and enjoy this true healthcare-related report because it will introduce some incredibly important and valuable health and healthcare concepts that can be vital life-improving concepts for most American adult citizens - and maybe for you also.

    Some of this health education may be life-saving information for many American visitors, and this education may be life-saving for you

    This health-related educational report will introduce you to vital healthcare concepts that can help you learn about some responsible and sensible actions that you can take to improve your life and better protect your natural health - probably for the rest of your life. 

     This may be the most important health-oriented report that you have ever reviewed.  You can evaluate this very special educational report after you complete the two-part report presented by Lon Willoughby. 

     Part One of this true autobiographical report is presented at this website; Part Two of this vital healthcare-related report is presented at our main Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts education website.  (www dot ABCofHealth dot com)

     American visitors will be detoured to our main Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts education website at the appropriate time with a convenient detour link. 

     The two-parts of this lengthy autobiographical report will introduce life-improving natural healthcare and wellness concepts that can be exceptionally important and very valuable to American adult visitors

    Please understand that Lon Willoughby will not attempt to educate American visitors about which nutrition supplements they should personally take daily (herbs, minerals, proteins, vitamins, etc.) or how much of each nutrition supplement visitors should take in their lifestyle. 

    You understand that Lon does not have personalized health data (laboratory reports and other vital health information) for each American adult citizen that visits this educational website.

    You also understand that Lon has not been informed about the various health problems of each American adult visitor, and he has not been informed about the pharmaceutical prescription drugs that some American adult visitors may be taking - pursuant to a medical doctor's professional advice.

     It should therefore be clear that Lon Willoughby cannot provide important and valuable nutrition supplement recommendations for American adult citizen visitors at this website in a practical and responsible manner.   He does not have the health information about each visitor that is needed for him to provide those healthcare services

     Furthermore, that is the kind of educational business that Lon is involved with and ABC of Health has to charge reasonable fees for those kinds of very valuable educational services. Otherwise, our natural healthcare educational company could not afford to stay in business.

    However, this two-part true autobiographical report will introduce vital healthcare concepts that can be incredibly important and valuable for  American adult citizens.  The education presented in this website will change your life for the better in remarkable ways (at no cost to you).

     As you review this report, you will see that Lon has included some important historical information that provides a brief review of some situations that American adult citizens need to be aware of.  These historical reviews generally relate some healthcare concepts that are important to American adults.   

     You may not understand initially why some of Lon's personal information was included in this report, but be patient with this educational report because all of this information can be helpful in acquiring a better understanding of the family relationship concepts and various healthcare and wellness concepts that are introduced herein.




Colored Text information    


     Before Lon presents more information about this true autobiographical educational report, and introduces some very important healthcare and wellness concepts that can help visitors daily for the rest of their life, he will take a few minutes to explain important helpful information about the colored text that Lon used frequently throughout this website.

     He used a lot of colored text to emphasize certain words or phrases and to help improve clarity of meaning in some sentences.  

     Lon recommends that you review this website using a computer if available - to get the most convenient review of this website.  Using a computer color display will provide a larger and better viewing screen, and it will also be easier to control and manage than conducting a review of this lengthy website on a handheld Smart Phone or Tablet.

     NOTE:  If this subject is being presented in all black text, you do need to activate colored text viewing as suggested herein.  However, if you see some colored text in this subject information, you are already in colored text viewing mode (you do not need to take the actions suggested in this subject area).

     This website is also programmed to work well with Android type or iPhone type Smart Phones or Tablets but those displays will likely not present our colored text until they are activated to present colored text viewing. 

     A visitor can do that easily by scrolling down to the bottom of this Home Department's lengthy presentation and find and select a link command below the last line of type titled View full site.

    This easy scrolling action can be done very quickly (20 to 30 seconds), and it will enable you to find and select this View full site link command Doing this should activate colored text viewing for most mobile viewing devices.

    This same easy action may also be used to activate colored text viewing on many mobile devices for other websites, but see the NOTE below before you begin this lengthy scrolling action for this website. 

    NOTE:  An easier and quicker way to get to the bottom of this Home Department, for a computer display is to use the keyboard Ctrl F find functionFor Smart Phones or Tablets, use the Find Function or Find on page function. 

     If you are not familiar with this Find function, or Find on page function, select the three vertical dot icon or the three horizontal line icon (whichever your device uses at the top right side of the viewing screen) to begin using this special function.

     You will need to search for these words: bottom find function  That easy action will instantly get you to the bottom of this lengthy department - where you can see the link command: View full site

NOTE:  This special bottom find function feature was developed by Lon Willoughby for this website - it will not work for websites by other companies.

     Select the View full site link command to instantly get colored text viewing (for many viewing devices).  (This special View full site link command will not be available if you are already in color viewing mode.)

     Activating the View full site link will also instantly take you back to the top portion of this department to resume your review actions.

     If these Find Function actions do not activate colored text viewing for your Smart Phone or your Tablet, Lon again recommends that you review this website on a computer because the colored text will always be available on a color type computer display. 

     Our use of a lot of colored text can be very helpful in this introductory Advanced Natural Health Concepts educational website.   

Some Americans do not have a computer

or do not have access to the Internet

     If someone that you know does not have a computer or does not have convenient access to the Internet, please let them know that they can probably obtain both services at the nearest public library - at no cost.  

     Many public libraries in South Carolina have some computers for use by library members and also visitors.  Library personnel know how to quickly show people how to use one of those computers to get to the Internet and review this website (or other websites).      

     It takes only a few minutes to learn how to get to the Internet; anyone who has learned how to change stations on a radio or change channels on a T.V., can easily learn how to get on the Internet. 

     If you know some adults who do not have computer access to the Internet, please help them understand that they can call or go to the local public library to inquire about using one of their public use computers to obtain easy access to this very important website on the Internet at no cost. 

     This introductory level educational website may help improve their life in very important ways, and we do not charge a fee for this very valuable introductory level education service. 

     They just need to give the website address shown below to the library employee, and they will quickly find this website on the Internet for the visitor and also show them how easy it is to find this website.   

www.AdvancedNaturalHealthConcepts.com


     NOTES:  The upper and lower case letters shown in the website address above are used to make the separate words more noticeable.  The Internet automatically converts all words to lower case letters so it is not necessary to use the upper case letters shown above.  It just makes it easier to see each individual word than if all letters were in lower case. 

     If a person does not have an Email account, they can easily set up a free Email account at the library computer, and then go back to the library and use a library computer to begin using their new Email account to send easy and free Email communications or to simply check their Email account activity.

    Several browser companies offer free Email accounts and they are all good choices.  Lon chose to use the Microsoft type Email account (Email name@outlook.com) for its simplicity.  He found the Google account to be too complex, and they were frequently making changes to their accounts.

    Lon suggests choosing an Email name that will be meaningful to other people.  Do not choose a name that is meaningful only to the owner or a name that is difficult for people to use - like a lot of numbers or several letters that are not obviously logical.  Those Email names will not be meaningful to other people, and they will be difficult for other people to remember or use conveniently.     




Overview of this Department

     The first portion of this department presents important introductory information. 

     You will then get a brief review of some of Lon's natural healthcare concepts educational capabilities.  He wants visitors to get a quick  overview of vital natural healthcare concepts that Lon knows how to use to help our healthcare education clients improve their life a lot.

     Lon will then presents very important death rate data for people that lived in the United States of America (the USA).  You will learn that tens of thousands of Americans die prematurely each week - primarily because they were not educated about the health-related concepts that are presented in this "free to review" educational website. 

     This death rate data can help American adult citizens understand how critically important our natural healthcare concepts education services can be to many Americans.

     Lon Willoughby's autobiographical report will then present information about his early life while growing up on a farm in North Carolina.

     He will then present information about his early adult life after he completed high school in Tabor City, North Carolina and went off to college and then spent four years in the U.S. Air Force. 

     All of that personal information about Lon's life will help establish important credibility about how he acquired very important public speaking skills as an instructor in the U.S. Air Force, and also acquired very important critical thinking skills by working with complex electronic RADAR systems in the U.S. Air Force and additional complex electronic systems in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

     Lon acquired 17 years of work experience with the FAA on complex electronic systems that were used for air traffic control in the southern portion of the USA (commercial air traffic, military air traffic, and private civilian air traffic). 

     He then acquired a lot of special natural healthcare concepts education and also acquired 15+ years of work experience managing and operating the ABC of Health corporately owned health products store in Greenville, South Carolina.  That work enabled him to greatly increase his knowledge about hundreds of important natural healthcare nutrition supplement products.

     Lon's special natural healthcare concepts education and his related work experience eventually helped him become capable of educating millions of American adult citizens about vital natural healthcare concepts and related nutrition supplement products.         

    This very special educational website presents very important and very valuable life improving education for American adult visitors.  This  very special health-related education can also be life saving information for many American adult citizens.

Website Development Work

     Lon Willoughby began learning how to develop websites more than 25 years ago.  As he began using some Internet services, he realized that websites could be used to present important educational services for many people about vital natural healthcare and wellness concepts. 

     He could see that the remarkable advantage of this form of public education was that it could be presented on a computer screen in the convenience and comfort of a person's home or residence - for people who have access to Internet services

     Lon learned how to use the amazing Internet to educate American adult citizens about some exceptionally important life issues, including special natural healthcare and wellness concepts.

    His website building skills and his Internet knowledge enabled ABC of Health to offer our vital natural healthcare and wellness concepts education services to thousands of natural-born American adult citizens who are Christian-oriented and who live in selected ZIP Code areas of upstate South Carolina (have a home or residence ZIP Codes of 296 - - or 293 - - ). 

     Lon will explain later why we limit and restrict our Internet educational territory to those ZIP Code areas.

     Our Internet-based educational services enable our natural healthcare and wellness concepts education company to help improve a lot of lives for American citizens who live in selected areas of upstate SC. 

     Visitors to this introductory education website have a remarkable opportunity to learn about our natural healthcare concepts education services - that can help our education clients learn how to protect, defend, and extend their natural healthy life span

Two Important Questions

     Why should American adult visitors take time to responsibly consider what Lon says that might help them improve their health status?  

     How did Lon acquire very important education and life experiences that enabled him to become a very important educator for many Americans about vital healthcare issues and also litigation issues and judicial issues in American courts?

Answers To Those Two Questions

     The very important education presented in Lon's autobiographical report can help American adult visitors answer those two important questions

     It is important for visitors to learn that Lon Willoughby has not had a cold viral infection, or a flu viral infection, or a bacterial microbial infection since March 1986.  

     He got a serious flu viral infection at that time (about 35 years ago) from a business associate who came to Lon's home and talked with him outside for a while in a standing position. 

     Lon did not realize that this individual had recently had the flu - there was no noticeable indication that he had been sick.  However, Lon caught the worst case of the flu virus that he has ever had from that casual meeting situation.  Lon's sickness lasted several weeks and it was really serious - his throat was very painful for several weeks.

     That individual had a bad habit of getting too close to people when he talked with them.  He routinely would stand about two feet away when talking face to face.  If he had stayed four feet away from Lon as they talked, Lon may not have caught the very bad flu virus from him. 

     Lon has learned how to protect himself from microbial infections much better than he knew how to do back in March 1986.  He tries to maintain a distance of four feet or more when talking with individuals.

Coronavirus Information

     Reasonable social distancing is very important when talking with anyone face to face, and most American adults have been educated recently (since January 2020) that reasonable social distancing is six feet or more. 

     Wearing a face mask and social distancing are both very important actions to take when trying to avoid getting infected with the coronavirus that is currently active in many people and in many places in the United States of America (USA)

     People have died by the tens of thousands because they foolishly and stubbornly refused to follow the advice of reputable healthcare experts about the two easy actions stated above that can dramatically improve one's potential for avoiding getting sick with the coronavirus - especially with the delta variant of the virus

     Lon Willoughby is convinced that the vaccine shot (Johnson & Johnson) or shots (other company brands) is a very smart thing to do.  Lon and Janie have had both of their two-shot doses - as soon as they had access to those vaccine doses.

Personal Life Information

     Lon's personal life information in this website can help a lot of adults, and the relevance of this information will be understood better by the time you complete your review of this very important educational report.

     As the founder and president of ABC's of Health, Inc., Lonnie Willoughby, Jr. (Lon Will-o-bee) worked responsibly and diligently for many years to enable and ensure that he can capably educate our natural healthcare education clients about how they can improve and protect their precious natural health in practical, responsible, and sensible ways that are cost-effective actions.  

     Lon Willoughby has learned a lot of very important natural healthcare and wellness concepts since year 1970, when he began to focus some attention on learning natural healthcare conceptsHe learned additional  healthcare education concepts as each year passed since year 1970

     Fortunately, during year 2010, Lon began having more opportunities to increase his very important natural healthcare concepts self-education actions.  He was able to learn some very important natural healthcare and wellness concepts during the past 11 years.

     One of Lon's primary ABC of Health objectives for many years has been to enable our education clients to substantially improve their potential for healthy longevity (live longer in good health). 




   Quick Overview of Vital Healthcare Issues

     Let's take a quick look at some very important healthcare educational subject issues.  What can Lon Willoughby help our education clients (living in the upstate area of South Carolina) strive to accomplish for improving their own lifestyle and also accomplish for their spouse and for dependent children who live at home with their parents?

     Over the past 40+ years, Lon focused his natural healthcare educational objectives on some major health problems in America - health problems like  cardiovascular diseases (heart attacks and strokes), cancer conditions, dementia conditions (including Alzheimer's conditions), and also blood sugar control and management (diabetes and hypoglycemia). 

     Lon also focused some of his natural healthcare educational objectives on basic and fundamental level health improvements such as: using positive thoughts to improve mental attitudes, and improve nutrition in the diet by using helpful enzymes, herbs, quality minerals, probiotics, quality protein supplements, and quality vitamin supplements. 

     Lon's natural healthcare concepts education studies and his extensive natural healthcare work experiences enabled him to learn how to: 

     1.  take nutrition supplements - enzymes, herbs, quality minerals and protein products,  probiotics, and various vitamins.  He learned what to take, how much to take, and when to take supplements for best results.

     2.  He also learned how to improve vital functions in the body's blood circulation system and also


     3.  improve operational conditions in the complex lymphatic system by studying Lymphology.
 
     4.  Lon learned how to improve vital functions in the complex immune system.  He learned how to improve the activity of the immune system in protecting one from sickness conditions that are fairly common in the United States of America (USA).
 
     5.  He learned how to improve vital hormones production and distribution in the body, and 

     6.  he learned how to improve brain functions and emotional control on a daily basis - reducing anxiety, nervousness, irritation, frustration, and depression conditions (all without using any alcoholic beverages or any pharmaceutical drugs).

     7.  Lon also learned how to improve the quality of drinking water, cooking water, and bathing water in homes and residences.

     8.  He also learned practical ways to improve the air quality inside homes and residences, and  

     9.  improve hydration (water) and oxygen distribution to trillions of body cells daily.

   10.  He also learned some very important health concepts about improving the digestion of food and beverage nutrients for the body.  Lon studied digestion processes and multiple enzymes that are critically important in the digestion of various types of food. 
 
   11.  Lon also learned how to improve complex functions of the intestinal system and improve bowel movement functions.  This included learning about using probiotic supplements (beneficial strains of  bacteria) to greatly improve the bowel health and improve important bowel functions.

   12.  He also learned how to help our education clients lose excess fat and weight sensibly while improving their overall health. 

   13.  He learned how to perform important exercise activities easily at home that are more beneficial than walking, running, or having a swimming pool at home.

   14.  He also learned how to help our natural healthcare concepts educational clients relax better, emotionally and physically, and sleep better, and also slow down the usual human ageing process.

     As you can see from this healthcare actions listing, Lon focused a lot of attention (thousands of hours over 40+ years) on learning how to help the human body maintain good health throughout the complex body. 

     He gradually learned how to help the blood circulation system, the very complex immune system, the complex lymphatic system, the kidneys, liver and lungs, and some other organs minimize sickness conditions by natural means - wherever feasible.

     During the past 20+ years, Lon Willoughby developed and copyrighted more than 50 healthcare concepts and protocols to help accomplish some of the objectives listed above. 

     Lon didn't try to "invent the wheel" or "re-invent the wheel" except in some situations where that was clearly needed and could be helpful. 

     He diligently searched for medical doctors and nurses, and dietitians, and homeopathic practitioners, natural healthcare consultants, naturopathic physicians, nutritionist, and also healthcare researchers, who had made important contributions to improving human healthcare using natural actions, practices, protocols, and nutritional substances. 

Referring our Healthcare Education Clients

     Lon also understands how and when to refer our healthcare education clients to some of those important sources of healthcare information when that specific information can be helpful to one of our healthcare education clients.

     He refers our healthcare education clients to other healthcare experts when their healthcare expertise could be helpful - usually by referring our education clients to selected books or selected website education that can be helpful. 

     Lon understands that he does not know everything that one of our healthcare education clients may need to consider, and he is responsible about observing copyright protection standards of special natural healthcare concepts

     Lon will willingly refer one of our natural healthcare education clients to other sources of important natural healthcare concepts, and also refer them to medical profession doctors, when those special services may be helpful to one of our natural healthcare concepts education clients.

     Lon Willoughby has learned about many sources of vital natural healthcare concepts information, mostly in book format, because he has spent thousands of hours conducting research and reviews about vital natural healthcare concepts during the past 40+ years. 

     You will also learn herein that Lon purchased more than a thousand natural healthcare type books during the past 40+ years.  He has acquired an exceptional important and valuable library of natural healthcare type books for ABC of Health.


FDA STATEMENT 


     The very important and valuable natural healthcare and wellness concepts introduced at this website are natural healthcare concepts education, and these concepts have not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

     It is very important for American adult visitors to understand that the natural healthcare concepts published in this website are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.   

     That is a very important statement because the FDA decided long ago that only licensed medical doctors can diagnose or treat disease conditions. 

     Lon Willoughby does not like that FDA decision, but he understands that this is the prevailing controlling FDA healthcare standard for the  United States of America at this time. 

     He believes that the FDA standard is too restrictive because Lon understands that some non-medical doctor healthcare practitioners are capable of providing very important and very valuable healthcare services for many USA citizens - vital services that American medical doctors are usually not able to provide competently for people

     Lon realizes that most medical doctors and nurses have not been educated and trained adequately about many healthcare issues that are related to natural nutrition issues and nutrition products.  For many years, the FDA apparently has routinely ignored this critically important healthcare deficiency situation in the American medical profession.

     Lon Willoughby realizes that many millions of Americans, adults, teenagers, and younger children will likely suffer unnecessarily in many ways throughout their lifetimes by this very serious FDA deficiency.


Drugs

     Any device or substance that claims to be able to cure or prevent any disease condition is considered to be a drug by the FDA, and all drugs used within the USA must be FDA approved drugs. 

     Consequently, it is generally illegal for American citizens to use any device or substance to cure or prevent any disease condition that has not been approved by the FDA as a drug for that purpose.

     Note:  It can cost millions of USA dollars, and hundreds of millions of USA dollars, to get a new drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

     Consequently, any educational concepts introduced in this website that are related in any way to the cure or prevention of any disease condition must be considered as educational information only.  

     Natural healthcare concepts introduced in this website can help American adult citizen visitors realize what may be possible for vital healthcare improvements with the right circumstances.

     Due to Lon's many years of natural healthcare concepts education, and his many years of work experiences related to natural healthcare actions and improvements, he realizes that there are many helpful natural healthcare actions that American residents can take that can help reduce and minimize the potential for suffering with some serious health conditions and diseases. 

     Is it fair, reasonable, and sensible for the FDA to automatically classify those potentially preventive actions as illegal unauthorized drugs because the FDA and the American medical profession are not necessarily involved if American residents take some of those very  sensible preventive actions in a knowledgeable and responsible way? 

     Lon Willoughby understands that this is a very important subject for American adult citizens to consider in their personal healthcare actions.


Relevant Notes

     Some States in the USA have developed statutory laws that allow other types of healthcare practitioners (non-medical doctors) to provide valuable healthcare services to residents within that State's geographic boundaries. 

     Oklahoma has developed statutory law standards that provide very good healthcare freedom for people within that State.  

     Oklahoma may have the best healthcare freedom statutory laws of any State in the USA.

     Some other States in the USA have also developed reasonable healthcare freedom statutory laws.

     South Carolina is one of the most restricted healthcare freedom States in the USA, and Lon Willoughby is currently working on trying to get improvements made for those very unreasonable restrictions. 

     North Carolina, a neighboring state, has more healthcare freedom for its citizens than South Carolina has for its citizens.




Premature Deaths in America

     This very important health-related education report presents Lon's research finding of data at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website (cdc.gov) about the death rates in the entire USA.     

      Reviewing this death rate data can help visitors understand what medical profession healthcare actions in the USA have accomplished for healthy longevity for people in the USA during the past 100 years.

     Lon has reviewed and evaluated CDC's death rate statistics for some relevant past years.  Competent American adults can likely benefit a lot by reviewing the vital educational information presented in this report.

      Lon found that very important CDC death rate data show that many people die prematurely on an annual basis in the USAHe reports that annual data by months and also by weeks to make that data more helpful for this very important and very valuable health-oriented educational report.

      Lon's work in the natural healthcare education field for more than 30 years found that many people feel that they already know enough about helpful natural healthcare actions to develop a healthy lifestyle.  However, Lon's many years of healthcare experience found that this was foolish wishful thinking for almost everyone.  He found that most people know very little about developing a truly healthy sensible lifestyle. 

      Lon's research at the CDC data base found that on average, more than 40,000 premature deaths occur weekly in the USA (deaths before age 90) That amounts to more than 160,000 premature deaths monthly and more than 1,920,000 premature deaths per year.

      Lon's research also found that the total deaths per year average in the USA is about 2,600,000 - for all causes of death. 

      From the death rate statistics presented above, Lon learned that most deaths in the USA occur before people get to age 90.   You will learn herein later that the average male in the USA will die before reaching age 79

      That means that about half of all American males will die before getting to age 79, and half of American males will live longer than age 78.  Very few males will live to age 90American females typically live two to three years longer than American males.

      Unfortunately, not many Americans are healthy enough to celebrate their 90th birthday.  Of the few American citizens who get to that birthday, how many of them are in good enough health at that age to actually enjoy celebrating their 90th birthday? 

      Lon has good reasons for believing that very few American citizens (females or males) are in good enough health to actually enjoy that birthday.

      You will probably agree with Lon that the CDC data presented above enables him to report that a very high number of estimated premature deaths occur in the USA on an annual basis. 

      From Lon's healthcare research and his natural healthcare concepts work during the past 30+ years, he understands why most Americans will likely die prematurely (before they get to age 90)

Do American Adults Know Enough

about Vital Healthcare Concepts?

     If American adults were as knowledgeable about important natural healthcare and wellness concepts as they typically want to believe they are, we would not have so much sickness and disease conditions, with a lot of pain and suffering, and with a lot of medical expenses, as we have in many cities in America. 

     Visit any large hospital and the parking lot area will usually contain a lot of cars.  Even though the parking lot complex is very large, with hundreds of parking spaces, it may be difficult to find a vacant parking space. 

     Some hospitals are so busy that they may not have a private room available for a new heart attack or stroke patient.  The patient may be put on a bed that is parked in a hallway near a nursing station where nursing staff members are usually working at a desk area (they can then monitor the new patient - who is waiting for a patient room).  

     The new patient may have to stay in this hallway area for several hours until a vacant patient room becomes available.  In other words, the hospital is very busy with hundreds of sick patients and vacant rooms are not always quickly available.

     These many busy hospital situations, across the USA, confirm that the USA has a lot of people who get sick and need hospital medical care. 

     Lon Willoughby realizes that many of those people did not know how to take good care of their natural health and natural healthcare assets and now they have serious health problems

     Lon also realizes that almost all people living in the USA have not had a good opportunity to get educated to learn how to take good care of their natural health.  That serious deficient situation is what motivated Lon Willoughby to establish our healthcare educational corporation in year 1986.

     You will learn herein that there are 24 modern industrialized countries that have healthier people than people in the USA.  Consequently, most of the adults in the USA clearly need some vital natural healthcare and wellness concepts education.  

     The BIG QUESTION IS:  how are they going to obtain access to this badly needed natural healthcare concepts education?     

     American adult citizens need to learn that they should not continue thinking that American medical doctors and nurses will provide the healthcare education that they need. 

     As reported herein, medical doctors and nurses are not educated and trained to provide natural healthcare and wellness concepts education services. 

     It is very important for adults in the USA to understand that natural healthcare education is not what medical doctors and nurses are supposed to do for their healthcare patients.  In general, natural healthcare education services are outside their area of professional expertise. 

     As reported herein, American adults need to quickly learn that they should consult with local dietitians and/or nutrition consultants to obtain some of those badly needed natural healthcare education services

     Some of the healthcare education that is needed can be acquired from natural healthcare concepts  type books, but there are thousands of those type books in the marketplace. 

     They are going to need some good advice from a dietitian, or a nutrition consultant, or a natural healthcare consultant (like Lon Willoughby) to narrow that education problem down to just a few books - maybe four or five really important helpful books. 

     Lon Willoughby, at ABC of Health, can provide those kinds of very important natural healthcare concepts education services for thousands of American adult citizens living in the upstate area of South Carolina - for citizens who get qualified to join our Americans4Justice-SC club and get full access to our remarkable membership education services.

     The unique outstanding natural healthcare and wellness concepts education services that can be provided by Lon and Janie Willoughby at ABC of Health are available only to natural-born American adult citizens who are Christian-oriented and live in selected ZIP Code areas of upstate South Carolina.

Detour To Another Website

     At the end of this website's introductory Advanced Natural Health Concepts report, American citizen adult visitors will be detoured to our main Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts education website to continue this education with Part Two of Lon Willoughby's very important and very valuable healthcare-related educational report.  

    The healthcare education services presented at our main Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts education website will also present additional education information about the five major causes of premature deaths in the USA.  This special education is also presented in our "free to review" format. 

     Our main Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts educational website will also identify some natural healthcare actions that American adult citizens can take to help them improve their lifestyle actions - practically, responsibly, and sensibly

     Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people die prematurely each week in the USA because they had not been educated about our copyrighted vital natural healthcare and wellness concepts.


Improving Death Rate Statistics

     Lon Willoughby has learned how to greatly improve those annual CDC death rate statistics (over a period of years), but trying to educate millions of American adults about practical and sensible ways to improve their personal lifestyle is a gigantic education task. 

     This website's very revealing healthcare-related report will also help American adult citizen visitors understand why this would be a very difficult task and would likely be a very risky and dangerous educational task for our education company

     You will likely be surprised and shocked when you learn herein about the very serious healthcare education problem conditions in the USA.  You will learn herein that trying to provide very important natural healthcare and wellness concepts education anywhere in the USA is very dangerous work that can have tragic consequences for the educators. 

     You will learn herein that there are powerful forces (financially and politically) operating in the USA that make billions of dollars each year by providing medical services to inadequately educated medical patients. 

     It is financially advantageous for them to try to prevent American adults from getting educated about very important alternative health type natural healthcare and wellness concepts.

     Lon's healthcare-related report will help American adult visitors understand what plan of progressive actions Lon has developed to help make some very important progress in this very difficult and risky and potentially dangerous healthcare improvement challenge for some natural-born American citizens who are Christian-oriented and live in selected ZIP Code areas of upstate South Carolina.

     You will learn herein that Lon has developed natural healthcare and wellness concepts that can enable many American adult citizens to likely live a healthier and longer life with more achievements and more enjoyment and more satisfaction in their life. 

     Lon Willoughby believes that millions of American adult citizens can be taught how to live to age 90 and beyond with a lot less sickness and disease, and a lot less pain and suffering, and a lot less medical expense than is common for many citizens in America today. 

     Lon has good reasons to believe that millions of American adult citizens can be taught how to improve their lifestyle and their natural healthcare actions so they can still be reasonably healthy at age 90 and may live to celebrate their 100th birthday, or even years older

     Very important legal issues are relevant here, and Lon has studied those legal issues.  He is confident that all American adult citizens have a constitutionally protected right to access vital natural healthcare and wellness concepts education wherever it is available to citizens. 

     The financially and politically powerful forces that unfairly and unethically try to prevent American citizens from having good access to those natural healthcare education services are trying to deprive American citizens of a constitutionally protected education service.

     Lon is doing what he can to make those vital natural healthcare and wellness concepts educational services available to hundreds of thousands of natural-born American citizens who are Christian-oriented and live in selected ZIP Code areas of upstate South Carolina - because ABC of Health is located in Greenville County South Carolina.

     Lon enjoys very good health at age 85 because he learned how to overcome three serious healthcare challenges as explained briefly below. Two of those health problems caused very difficult health conditions in his life for 25+ years.

Lon's Personal Experiences With Medical Doctors

     Lon will explain herein three different health conditions that caused him to consult with medical doctors.  In all of those situations, the medical doctors were unable to provide any significant help to Lon. 

     These three health problems will be explained in some detail later in this website's autobiographical health-related report. 


Lon Learns How to Correct His Health Problems

     Fortunately, over a period of many years, Lon's determined and diligent self-education natural healthcare actions enabled him to learn how to cope successfully with his chronic health problems.

    He eventually recovered from his serious health problems - without getting any significant help from the several medical doctors that he had consulted over a period of many years.  Lon had been very disappointed in the series of medical doctors that he had consulted.  It seemed like they knew nothing about nutrition-related health problems.

     Lon had struggled for many years to get better control of his serious health problems, and he had learned a lot of important natural healthcare concepts that could be helpful to millions of American adult citizens.

     He realized that he did not have a good way of communicating with those adult citizens.  Lon was learning about some Internet services, and he saw the potential for communicating with many American adult citizens by using some of the Internet's amazing service features

     Lon began working responsibly to develop the special knowledge and skills that were needed for him to build the first website for ABC of Health using complex HTML coding

     Over a period of many years, Lon learned how to use other website building programs to build our remarkable natural healthcare and wellness concepts education websites for ABC of Health.  Those educational websites eventually enabled our company to offer some of our natural healthcare concepts education services to selected American adult citizens in upstate areas of South Carolina.  

     Over a period of 19 years (1980 to 1999), while diligently learning about natural healthcare actions, concepts, and protocols, Lon gradually learned how to be a knowledgeable natural healthcare concepts consultant and nutrition consultant and classroom natural healthcare instructor

     This very important introductory educational website introduces visitors to some of the very valuable natural healthcare and wellness concepts that Lon learned during those years of ongoing natural healthcare education.      

     He continued that natural healthcare concepts education up to the current time in year 2021 At age 85, Lon Willoughby is living and walking proof that his extensive natural healthcare and wellness concepts education and experiences were very important and valuable

     His special education about natural healthcare and wellness concepts and his many years of natural healthcare work experiences can now be used to help millions of American citizens learn how to live a better life.



Lon's Early Life Experiences

     Lonnie Jr. was generally a healthy person while growing up on a farm in North Carolina.  He feels really fortunate to have grown up in that rural farming environment because he learned many important things about living a natural life - similar in many respects to the farmers who were busy growing food for Americans in the 1800's. 

    Lon's father and mother were both intelligent responsible farming people who had grown up on their own family's farm. They both grew up in large families with multiple brothers and sisters.

     Lon's parents were hard working farmers with a strong desire to be productive, progress, and to succeed in life.  They helped first-born son Lonnie Jr. learn how to plant, nourish, grow and harvest many food products for sale and as food. 

     Those important experiences enabled Lonnie Jr. (Lon) to understand how several food products are planted, and how they are nourished with fertilizer nutrients, cared for carefully during their growing season, and then harvested properly for marketing. 

     A ton of fertilizer is equal to 2,000 pounds of nutrients for plants, supplied at that time in 200 pound bags.  As a high school student, Lon weighed only 133 pounds (5 feet, 8 1/2 inches tall), but he learned how to manhandle those large 200 pound bags of fertilizer pretty well. 

     For several years, while he was growing up on the farm, Lon distributed a lot of plant fertilizer to various types of plants (in large fields - many acres in each field). 

     He also drove a Farmall Cub four-wheel tractor in plowing fields and also cultivating fields of different types of plants. 

     Lon Jr. helped his parents a lot, for several years, with very important essential farming tasks.

    His parents also helped Lon Jr. learn how to raise animals such as chickens, a milk cow, and about 20 White Faced Hereford beef cows, and several hogs.  Those animals could be sold to local people and some animals would provide food for the family.

     Over the years, Lon milked a series of milk cows, milking one milk cow each morning, seven days per week.  That continued until he was graduated from high school and went off to college, leaving that daily chore for his younger brother (his only sibling - who was about 20 months younger). 

    The Willoughby family had fresh cow's milk to drink daily.  They made their own natural butter from some of that milk.  They also had a lot of chicken eggs, and plenty of chicken, beef, and pork to eat and to also sell to other local people.

    Each year, they had a large garden where they grew an assortment of special vegetables for additional food.  Lon's mother also canned some of those vegetables for food during later months (canned food for the fall and winter seasons and early spring season).

     His mother also baked white refined "enriched" flour as loaf bread and as biscuits for the family to eat with meals.  She was a very good cook who knew how to prepare very good meals.

    Lon always had a friendly happy dog as a pet. 

    It was a very good life for a young farm boy with lots of interesting and challenging things to do and to learn as he was growing up.   

    Lon remembers that he was twelve years old when the local electric company made electric service available to the farms located beside the narrow two lane dirt road where he lived (about two miles from the nearest town - Tabor City, NC).  The small town was near the South Carolina state border - about forty-five road miles from Myrtle Beach, SC. 

    Prior to that time (in year 1948), the Willoughby's did not have hot and cold running water at their kitchen sink - there was no electricity to operate an electric pump to get well water into their home. 

    Without electric service, they could not have electric lights, or an electric refrigerator, or an electric water heater.  Consequently, they could not have a conventional bathroom because they did not have cold and hot running water in their home. 

     Bathing (washing) was done from a "foot-tub" - a larger than normal bucket (galvanized steel) that contained water from the well - warm water was produced by mixing regular well water with water that had been heated on the kitchen stove. 

     Until the Willoughby's got electricity in 1948, they had a typical outdoor toilet (outhouse) instead of a commode.  They did not have toilet paper - just pages torn from last year's Sears and Roebuck Catalog or last year's Almanac.  When those pages were all gone, they used corn cobs from ears of corn that had been run through the manually operated hand-turned corn shelling machine.      

     There was no convenient and practical way to wash one's hands after using the outdoor outhouse as a urinal or for a bowel movement.    

     From this important explanation, visitors can realize that many rural Americans (men, women, and children) probably got sick from microbial infections because they knew very little (if anything) about dangerous tiny microbes that were too small to be seen with human eyes.  They did not have convenient and practical ways to wash their hands carefully several times daily with soap and water.  

    Visitors should realize that this is the way that most people in America had lived for more than 300 years - prior to the time that electric services became available to many people living in America

     Was it much different for American city dwellers during those same years?  Lon doesn't know, but he believes that many people living in Tabor City, NC did have electricity and did have indoor bathrooms with cold and hot water before the late 1940's to early 1950's when rural Americans began getting electrical power service to their farm homes.

Serious Sanitation Problems

     Small towns and larger towns and cities throughout America had previously had major sanitation problems for hundreds of years. 

     Our founding fathers and mothers and their adult sons and daughters had serious problems with disposing of human bowel movement waste and urination waste.  That common situation continued for many generations of Americans - until electrical power service was available to various towns and cities in America.

     Without electricity and electric pumps, effective practical sewage systems were not normally available for small size, medium size, and larger towns and cities in America.  Those serious sanitation problems were also common problems for rural area Americans.

     That was also a common major sanitation problem throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and other continents, as it had been for thousands of years.  Those sanitation problems probably enabled a lot of microbial infections, and a lot of serious sickness, and a lot of premature deaths.

Tiny Microbes Are Discovered  

    Tiny microbes (bacteria) were first discovered by a Dutch scientist named Antonie van Leeuwenhoek.  He was born October 24, 1632 in Delft, Netherlands and he lived to be age 90 at a time when very few people lived that long. 

     He made his living as a cloth merchant, and he was familiar with using a magnifying glass to carefully inspect the weave and threads per inch of various fine cloths.  Using that magnifying glass probably gave him the idea for wanting a magnifying device that was much more powerful than a magnifying glass for inspecting cloth weaves (may have had a magnification factor of 5). 

     He laboriously taught himself how to become a very competent microscopist by learning how to built his own microscopes for various scientific evaluation projects.  He even learned how to grind the lenses for his innovative microscopes. 

     His unique microscopes did not look like a modern day microscope (with a tubular body and lens at the top and bottom of the tube).  His microscopes were flat devices similar to a special magnifying glass. 

     Antonie van Leeuwenhoek was the first known person to observe bacteria and protozoa, and he did that in year 1676.  He first discovered tiny microbes by observing water closely with his microscope and finding tiny active organisms (bacteria) within the water. 

     He reported some of his microscopic discoveries to the Royal Society in London by letter, and he was elected a member of the society in 1680. He maintained that important scientific association by correspondence for the rest of his life.     

     He made his own microscopes using a secret process which he developed and would not disclose to other people.  His microscopes had magnifications of about 50 up to about 150 with a maximum of 300.  A review of his work as a microscopist found that he had made about 500 microscopes during his extensive scientific evaluation projects.     

     Unfortunately, his very important scientific discoveries were not widely known by the European scientific community of his day. 

     First of all, we need to understand that there were not many scientist at that time, and it was very difficult for them to make a living as a scientist.  They usually had to have some other regular occupation to sustain them financially while pursuing their scientific investigations and evaluations

     Antonie van Leeuwenhoek was a technically minded person who was a successful cloth merchant while he pursued his many self-educated and self-taught scientific evaluations in a dedicated manner.   

     During the 1680's, scientist who were not local with each other did not have good means of communicating with each other.  It was not practical to learn about each other's scientific experiments and achievements during those times when the scientist were located many miles from each other.  Most scientist of Leeuwenhoek's day probably knew nothing about his very important scientific discoveries.

     Some other members of the Royal Society did learn about some of his unique microscopic discoveries because some controversy occurred about some of his reported discoveries. 

     However, those scientist did not know how to use Leeuwenhoek's very important microscope discoveries to make badly needed healthcare improvements in medical science that might have helped many people.  

     The scientific community did not develop practical advancements in medical science using his critically important microscopic discoveries. No one understood that the tiny microbes that he had discovered could cause serious infections that could cause sickness and death for many people.

     People throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and other continents had been dying at young ages in large numbers for a long time, and those high deaths rates continued for many more years, as reported below.   

     No one knew what was causing so much sickness, suffering, and early death.  People had no effective defenses for those very serious sickness conditions (likely caused by dangerous bacterial infections by microbe contaminated food and/or contaminated drinking water). 

     Many children died before they were five years old.  Children were the most likely group of humans to die from microbe infections because they usually had not developed immune system "resistance" to some microbial infections - like some adults had fortunately developed. 


Bacteria were "Rediscovered"    

     As shown below, the scientific community on this planet had to wait about 186 years for chemist and scientist Louis Pasteur to make major advancements in human healthcare actions regarding the tiny microbes that had been discovered in year 1676 by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek.

     Bacteria were "rediscovered" during year 1862 by French chemist  Louis Pasteur (working in France).  Some wine makers had commissioned him to try to discover what was causing a lot of their good wine to turn into bad wine at their winery's.  

     Using his scientific knowledge and skills and his microscope, Louis Pasteur discovered that some of the wine was apparently being contaminated and ruined by tiny microbes (bacteria) in the wine - microbes too small to be seen by human eyes without a microscope. 

     It is very important to understand that the tiny microbes are able to duplicate themselves and multiply in numbers very quickly, causing much more contamination to the wine over a few days time.

     After evaluating those contaminated wine conditions, Louis Pasteur found that he could deactivate (kill) the microbes by heating the wine to a high temperature (close to boiling temperature) for a very short period of time.

     He then developed a practical process for heating new wine to deactivate (kill) any tiny microbes that may be in the wine before the microbes had time to greatly multiply and contaminate (damage) the wine severely. 

     That very important easy heating process became known as pasteurization, and it was then used widely to protect beer, milk, wine and other liquids from serious microbial contamination (bacteria).

     Now you know how, why, and when tiny microbes were "rediscovered" by Louis Pasteur in France (during year 1862).

Microbial Infections

     Ordinary people (anywhere on Planet Earth) did not begin to learn about dangerous microbial type infections until year 1862 and in later years.  Year 1862 is when very important healthcare education actions  were started by the remarkable chemist and scientist Louis Pasteur. 

     Prior to that very important year, millions upon millions of people had gotten sick and millions of them had suffered with and died from dangerous microbial infections (throughout mankind's history). 

     No one understood what was causing so much sickness, pain and suffering, and so much death until French chemist and scientist Louis Pasteur began investigating and evaluating some of those situations.      

     Fortunately, Louis Pasteur had sufficient scientific knowledge and the special scientific abilities needed to evaluate and understand the great importance and significance of tiny microorganisms (in year 1862).  

     He had the remarkable technical ability to understand that tiny microorganisms (bacteria) had apparently been causing a lot of serious infections that produced a lot of pain and suffering and caused a lot of early deaths for many people, but especially for children. 

     Dr. Pasteur learned that some tiny microbes could cause serious damage to foods and liquids (beer, milk, wine, etc.), and he gradually learned that some of those tiny microbes could also be very dangerous for humans (and many animal species)

    Louis Pasteur's advanced level of scientific knowledge enabled him to understand the great importance of some tiny pathogenic (harmful) microorganisms (bacteria). 

    Fortunately, Dr. Pasteur had completed a lot of college level education, and he knew how to explain complex issues clearly to other people. 

    His scientific education and experiences enabled him to know how to  educate other scientist and medical doctors about tiny microbes (bacteria) that could cause very serious infections for humans. 

    Dr. Louis Pasteur had the special scientific knowledge and abilities that were needed to appreciate the great importance of the tiny microorganism discoveries of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek.  However, Lon Willoughby did not find any record evidence that Louis Pasteur ever learned about the early scientific discoveries of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek

    Leeuwenhoek was a remarkable self-taught scientist who made many very important scientific discoveries with his special hand crafted microscopes.  His many scientific microscopic discoveries helped start the sciences of bacteriology and protozoology. 

    Unfortunately, for about 186 years thereafter, the European scientist community did not understand that some tiny microorganisms (bacteria) could cause very serious infections that could kill many humans.     

Education Actions by Dr. Louis Pasteur

      As a result of very important education started by Dr. Louis Pasteur in year 1862, public newspaper articles were published that began to educate people about tiny microbes that could be harmful to people. 

     Medical doctors and nurses in France began to learn about dangerous microbial infections during the 1862 - 1863 time period

     Louis Pasteur's very important work with developing vaccines for some major diseases also helped save the lives of many people.  He developed vaccines for anthrax, cholera, small pox, and tuberculosis.   

     His scientific work made major advances in natural healthcare actions for people.  His amazing scientific work helped save the lives of  millions of people in the 1800's and in the 1900's, and the very important natural healthcare work that he developed in the 1800's is still helping save the lives of millions of people world-wide each year.

     Prior to Louis Pasteur's microbial education actions in 1862, medical doctors and nurses (everywhere) did not know about the great importance of carefully washing their hands between patients - even when they were delivering babies in hospitals several times per day. 

     It is very important to remember that electric services had not been developed at that time; there were no electric lights and there was no  hot and cold running water at convenient sinks.  Washing one's hands was not so easy in those days as it is today for most people. 

     Lon Willoughby realizes that hundreds of millions of humans had likely died early life premature deaths, especially young children, from pathogenic bacterial infections in years prior to year 1862

     As explained above, that's when chemist and scientist Louis Pasteur began to make major advances in helping people in France understand how to protect themselves much more effectively from microorganisms that could be very harmful to humans, especially young children.

Maternity Ward Infection Rates Were High

     In some major European hospitals, it was common for women to die from infections that occurred during their childbirth actions - at the rate of about 10% to 20% of childbirth cases in some major hospitals. 

     The women who were choosing to give birth in a major hospital (rather than using a midwife to assist with birth in a private home) did not know that they might have a 10% to 20% chance of dying with that hospital birth choice. 

     Whereas, using a midwife assisted birth situation in a private home had a typical death potential that was close to 0%.  But birthing women did not have ready access to that very important information so they did not know about the greater danger of giving birth in a local hospital.

     Many years went by before the cause of those very high hospital infection rates were understood.  After Pasteur's very important education actions began in 1862 about pathogenic microbes (bacteria), evaluations were made regarding the high rate of infections and deaths in hospital maternity wards in various European hospital locations because it was understood that midwife assisted births were much safer. 

     Those evaluations found that hospital medical doctors assigned to provide maternity ward birth assistance services had frequently worked in the hospital morgue between the birth assistance cases occurring in the maternity ward on a given day.  (The medical doctors worked with deceased hospital patient bodies in the hospital morgue, trying to learn something about the cause of a hospital patient's death.)

     When a runner came to the morgue and informed the on-duty medical doctor (working in the morgue) that the next birth assistance case in the maternity ward appeared to be getting close to delivering a baby, the medical doctor would stop his work with a corpse in the morgue and quickly walk to the maternity ward to provide his assistance with that birthing situation - without taking time to carefully wash his hands. 

     Medical doctors had not been educated about the discovery of tiny microbes that had been observed in 1673 by Dutch scientist Antone Van Leeuwenhoek using a microscope

     Consequently, well educated medical doctors did not realize that there were very small microbes that could not be seen by human eyes. Those tiny microbes were simply ignored from 1673 to 1862 because no one knew that the microbes could cause dangerous infections. 

     Medical doctors therefore had no practical known reason to bother with washing their hands carefully before assisting with a childbirth in the hospital's maternity ward.

     Those doctors apparently transferred dangerous pathogenic microbes from a corpse in their morgue work to patients who were giving birth. 

     Some patients got infected, and got very sick, and many of them died from those microbial infections (a 10% to 20% death rate was common for maternity cases in some major hospitals in Europe). 

     Think for a moment about the babies that were also infected, got very sick, and then died.  Now consider the babies that survived those situations but their mother had died.  They had no natural mother to breast feed them and take care of them through their childhood years. 

     Hundreds of those situations happened in hospitals throughout Europe and may have happened in hospitals in Africa, Asia, and other continents.

     Hundreds of hospital maternity ward infections were tragic events that caused a lot of pain and suffering and deaths - because medical doctors had not yet learned about microbial infection dangers. 

     There were many children in large cities who had no adults to take care of them, house them and educate them, and help them mature into young adulthood. 

     Many orphaned children lived in the streets as beggars.  Those children knew nothing about the importance of washing their hands and fingers before eating food with their fingers.  Many of those children likely got sick from dangerous microbial infections and many of those orphaned children likely died painful early childhood deaths. 

     Those tragic infection situations occurred frequently in hospital maternity wards in large cities throughout Europe for many years before year 1862 - because medical doctors had not been educated about tiny microbes that were too small to see with human eyes. 

     Prior to year 1862, no one understood that some of those tiny microbes could cause very dangerous infections.  Consequently, medical doctors did not understand the great importance of washing their hands carefully before assisting with birthing situations in hospital maternity wards.

     Fortunately, throughout those many years, dangerous microbial infection rates were a lot lower for childbirth situations at people's private homes with midwife assisted births.

     Those very dangerous infection situations did not happen nearly as often with midwife assisted birthing situations because the midwives did not routinely work with dead bodies in a hospital morgue just before assisting in childbirth cases in private homes, as hospital medical doctors routinely did in some European hospitals.

Before Bacteria Were "Rediscovered"

     Prior to year 1862, medical doctors in all locations did not know about very dangerous tiny microbes that could not be seen with human eyes.  They also did not understand that medical tools and utensils needed to be carefully washed and "sanitized" after every use. 

     If those medical tools and utensils were casually wiped off and appeared to be reasonably "clean" - that was good enough - they routinely thought.  Doctors and nurses did not realize that very dangerous microbes were much too small to see with human eyes. 

     Very serious microbial infections had been passed from medical doctor hands to patients in major hospitals throughout mankind's history without doctors realizing those critically important microbial transmission problems could occur with unwashed hands.

     Due to education actions initiated in 1862 by scientist Louis Pasteur, medical doctors and nurses in France began to learn to wash their hands and wash medical tools and utensils carefully between patients some time in 1862 or afterwards.  Education efforts about dangerous microbes gradually spread to medical doctors and nurses in other locations throughout most of Europe.

     It was many years after year 1862 before a lot of adults in Europe, Asia, Africa, America and other continents had been educated to understand that human hands needed to be carefully washed, even when they looked like they were reasonably clean - before eating food with their fingers, as many people routinely ate some of their food daily. 

 

The Civil War in America     
             

     The American Civil War began on April 12, 1861 and it continued for the next four years.  Injured soldiers on both sides of the conflict suffered terribly from dangerous microbial infections because American doctors and other Americans had not been educated about microbial infections. 

     Before the tragic war was over, hundreds of thousands of soldiers died after days, weeks, or months of very painful suffering from microbial infections.  The war was a terrible tragedy for the young nation and it wrecked the lives of about one million people, leaving the country in a state of financial and production and social ruin that was devastating.

     Medical doctors and nurses in America gradually began to learn about microbial infections and began learning how to treat those very serious  infections sometime after the American civil war ended on May 26, 1865

     Throughout the war period, Americans had not yet learned the great importance of washing their hands carefully before eating their food so many people probably suffered with microbial infections due to eating food that had been contaminated with their contaminated fingers

     Americans did not know that dangerous tiny microbes could be on their hands, fingers, and finger tips (and under their fingernails).  They did not realize that fingers and finger tips could likely contaminate the food that they were eating with their unwashed fingers. 

Sickness in the U.S. White House in 1862

     During the first year of the American Civil War, one of President Abraham Lincoln's sons died at a young age from a microbial infection.  President Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln had four children, all sons. 

     The third son, named William Wallace Lincoln and called "Willie" got very sick and died on February 20, 1862 at age 11.  His older brother Tad also got sick (the second son), apparently from the same cause, but he  survived his sickness. 

     Mrs. Mary Todd Lincoln was so distraught about her son Willie's sickness and death that she was in bed for three weeks and could not attend Willie's funeral or help with sick son Tad.

     Both sickness conditions were thought to be by the same cause, and it was believed to be typhoid fever (which is a bacterial disease)Typhoid fever is typically caused by eating food or drinking water that is contaminated by a type of Salmonella bacteria (a genus of rod-shaped bacteria that are parasites of animals and humans and can cause several disease conditions). 

     Some historical reports about Willie's sickness explain that he had been riding his pony during rainy weather.  Lon realizes that Willie may have gotten the sickness bacteria from his pony's body, and Willie may have contaminated his older brother Tad.  

     Those sickness conditions occurred for Willie and Tad before people in America had been educated about the tiny bacterial microbes that were discovered by Dr. Louis Pasteur during that same year in France - with his very important discovery of the cause of contaminated wine at some French winery's.  

     Consequently, at the time that Willie and Tad Lincoln were sick in February 1862, medical doctors in America had not been educated about tiny microbes (bacteria) that could cause sickness that could be fatal. There was no known defense for those mysterious infections.

Modern Day Americans

     In year 2020, many American adults and teenagers and younger children still do not have adequate education about microbial infections and sensible sanitary practices for minimizing those infections. 

     Medical doctors, nurses, and scientist have learned that there are many kinds of tiny microbes (bacteria and viruses) that can be very harmful and deadly for humans. 

     Many American adults still do not wash their hands carefully and responsibly after using a public rest room.  Very important research has been conducted about this very important hygiene issue, and that  research found that many men and women use public restrooms and do not even attempt to wash their hands after doing so. 

     That was actually a practical and sensible hygiene practice when restrooms contained faucets that had round style control knobs (required one to grasp the knobs with their finger tips to operate the faucets). 

     Unless one took time to carefully wash those faucet knobs with warm water and soap, it was practical and sensible to avoid touching those likely badly contaminated round style faucet control knobs. 

     NOTE:  Another contamination problem was the door knob used to get out of a public restroom in a restaurant or a store.  The door knob was likely contaminated badly by the people who used the restroom but did not wash their hands before leaving the restroom.

     One should use a folded paper towel to grasp the door knob as needed to get out of the restroom.  That folded paper towel should be discarded in the nearest trash can - without touching the portion of the paper towel that contacted the restroom door knob.

     Some modern store restrooms have eliminated the door to the restroom in order to eliminate the serious door knob contamination problem.  They use a privacy type walkway to get into and out of the restroom area that has no door in the privacy walkway.

Improved Faucet Design

     Fortunately, we now have better designed faucet control handles in many public restrooms, with lever style control handles rather than the earlier style round knob controls, as discussed later herein.   Lever style control handles can be operated without grasping the handle with the finger tips.  One can use the back of their fingers to push the lever controls on and off - which is a lot more sanitary. 

     Unfortunately, many American adults who do attempt to wash their hands usually do that in an inadequate manner, as explained below. 

     Do those people wash their hands more carefully and responsibly after using the bathroom commode at their residence?  We do not know about those situations, but it is likely that most people use the same hand washing tactics at home as they do in public facility restrooms. 

How should we wash our hands? 

     For hand washing to be reasonably effective, the hands should be wet with warm water (preferably) and then soap should be applied, and the hands and fingers should be massaged together briskly for a minimum of 30 seconds, creating as many soap bubbles as possible.  (Count to 30 or 40 slowly.)  The soap bubbles are important in this washing activity.

     Then carefully rinse the soap off the hands and fingers and dry the hands in a sanitary manner.

     Research shows that many people wash the soap off their hands in 10 seconds or less.  Those people have not learned how to wash their hands in a competent and responsible adult manner.

     What's the big hurry for?  Always take 30 to 40 seconds minimum to wash the hands and finger tips.  These important tactics are what parents should teach their young children about hand washing actions.

     Lon has seen employees working in fast food restaurants handle money at the cash register (contaminated - dirty money) and then turn around and make a hamburger or a sandwich with their bare hands for a customer using those badly contaminated fingers. 

     He saw a female employee working late at night at a fast food restaurant mopping the floor.  She stopped that activity, without washing her hands, and made a hamburger with her bare hands for a customer at the drive-through window area.

    Lon has seen male restaurant employees use the urinal in the restroom and then quickly go back to work in the kitchen without taking time to wash their hands (not even a casual and careless attempt). 

     Lon has also seen male adults use the urinal in restrooms in stores and then leave the restroom without making any attempt to washing their hands.  Those males did not understand that their fingers may now contaminate everything they touch in the store. 

Antiquated Social Handshake Practice

     From the information above, it is clear to Lon that shaking hands with people is an antiquated social practice that should be terminated.   Lon tries to avoid shaking hands with anyone.  He routinely uses the tactic shown below.

     A much more sensible social handshake adaptation is to extend the right hand and touch only the backs of the hands (back to back).  The finger tips are usually the most contaminated part of human hands so people should not touch each other's fingers or finger tips. 

Hand Washing Hygiene in year 2020

     Yes, some people in the USA have learned how to improve their routine hand washing tactics, but it is clear that many people still do not understand how to wash their hands properly after using a restroom.     

     Research has shown that approximately 80,000 people die in the USA annually from microbial infections that they got while in a hospital. 

     If that many people die from microbial infections that occurred in hospitals, where everyone is encouraged to use good hand washing and hygiene practices, we can only guesstimate about how many hospital patients get sick with microbial infections but survive their infection. 

     That number may be four or five or six times the number of hospital patients who died from their microbial infection.

    Lon Willoughby believes that a dangerous infection situation, similar to hospital environments but likely worse, is probably quite common for people who live in assisted living homes and nursing homes. 

     Some people working in those facilities may be more casual and more careless than patient staff workers in hospitals, and the visitors in those facilities may also be more casual and careless than hospital visitors. 

     What we do know is that there are many more microbial infections than is reasonable due to many casual and careless people who are not adequately educated about the dangers of serious microbial infections.

Many Millions in the USA Still Get Sick

     CDC data show that many millions of food-borne microbe infections occur in the USA each year.  It is therefore clear that many millions of people in the USA get sick from microbial infections each year. 

     Lon realizes that it is likely that many people die from some of those serious infections (could be food-borne bacterial infections or could be bacterial infections caused by drinking microbe contaminated liquids).
