Introductory Information

       As shown above, we are in the Natural Healthcare Concepts Education Business 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 the private health-related educational report presented herein as an incredibly important health-related educational report that can improve life in remarkable ways for some natural-born American adult citizens that live within selected ZIP Code areas of upstate South Carolina.

      Those selected South Carolina citizens ("qualified visitors") are encouraged to review this very valuable "free to review" educational website

      "Qualified visitors" are  natural-born American adult citizens, who are Christian-oriented, and who are responsibly patriotic towards the USA, and routinely live in their primary permanent home or residence with an address ZIP Code of 296 - - or 293 - - (They do not live at a temporary address - hotel, motel, boarding house, or any other temporary residence address.) 

     This private introductory educational website was developed especially for those "qualified visitors."  

     Lon Willoughby will explain herein why he and his wife Janie R. Willoughby strive daily to help selected "qualified visitors" learn how to enjoy a much healthier life than most American citizens know how to achieve.

    The practical value of this remarkable introductory education can be enormous - more valuable than selected "qualified visitors" can even begin to comprehend at this point in this educational presentation. 

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

     This private introductory educational website presents very important health concepts and natural healthcare and wellness concepts to "qualified visitors" who would like to learn how to be healthier, smarter, and stronger American citizens and maybe join with other patriotic "qualified visitors" in helping build a better America in some upstate areas of South Carolina

     This vital education will help "qualified visitors" review and understand clearly some health concepts and natural healthcare and wellness concepts that can be very important and very valuable to these selected American adult citizens.   

     "Qualified visitors" should review this "free to review" health-related true report as if the quality of their life in future years depends upon them understanding this special educational knowledge - because it really does. 

     This vital special health education can help "qualified visitors" protect their precious natural health.  These special educational services are not available anywhere else in the USA in this very helpful "free to review" format.


     This is a private introductory educational website that is not open to the general public like most websites are.  This special website was developed for education of select natural-born American adult citizens who are Christian oriented and routinely live in their primary permanent home or residence that is within one of the two major ZIP Code areas identified previously.  

     In order to be qualified for very important and valuable  education at this website, visitors must also be responsibly patriotic toward the United States of America (USA), and have an allegiance to the USA that is much stronger than their allegiance to any other country on Planet Earth. 

     Lon Willoughby defines those special South Carolina citizens herein as "qualified visitors."

     This website is strictly off limits for any person who is not a natural-born American citizen and who does not live within one of the ZIP Code areas identified above, and who does not live in their primary permanent home or residence within one of those ZIP Code areas. 

     However, a natural-born American adult citizen who meets these personal characteristics, but does not live in one of the designated ZIP Code areas, can apply to ABC of Health by Email, FAX, or US Mail if they would like to be granted "qualified visitor" access to this special private educational website by Lonnie Willoughby, Jr., as president of ABC's of Health, Inc

     Lon will explain the personal information that is needed from the applicant to evaluate this request.

     This private educational website is also strictly off limits for anyone who is a graduate of any law school or works for or with any attorney or lawyer or is closely associated with them in any way (family members, close relatives, employees, close friends, contract associates, etc.). 

     This private educational website is also strictly off limits for anyone who works for, or is associated closely with, any judicial department or any law enforcement department in the United States of America.  

     A detailed explanation is presented herein for "qualified visitors" about all of these restrictionsOnce they review  the unfair, unethical, and corrupt actions that caused these restrictions, they will understand that these restrictions are reasonable and fair and appropriate.

     As "qualified visitors" complete a review of this website, they will understand why it is risky and dangerous for Lon and Janie Willoughby and ABC of Health to present the very important and very valuable education that is presented at this introductory education website. 

     If ABC of Health promoted a review of this website in additional South Carolina locations that were further away from Greenville, South Carolina, the risks and dangers would get greater as the distance away from Greenville increased. 

     Responsible and competent "qualified visitors" will understand these very important issues as they complete their review of this educational website.

     Our Terms of Use Department presents penalty guidelines for violations of these restrictions and all restricted persons are hereby granted limited permission to review only our Terms of Use Department.  This "Legal Notices" subject is the boundary limits for all visitors to this website who are not "qualified visitors" as defined previously.

     Please be advised accordingly, and all visitors are encouraged to be responsible about reviewing this very special private educational website.

What education is introduced herein?

     Lon Willoughby will not attempt to teach herein some of the health concepts that "qualified visitors" need to know about responsible and sensible healthy lifestyle actions. 

     That is the natural healthcare education business that Lon and Janie developed for ABC of Health, and we charge a "first-year" private education club membership dues fee for new club members to have access to those very important and very valuable educational services during their "first year" of membership in our A4J private education club

     However, this private report will encourage and try to help motivate "qualified visitors" to take a more responsible interest in taking good care of their precious natural health

     Some of the very important natural healthcare concepts presented herein can help "qualified visitors" begin to learn how to do this.

     Lon and Janie Willoughby both understand that tens of thousands of American residents die prematurely each week that passes because they did not have a good opportunity to get educated about the very important health concepts that are introduced in this very special educational website.

     Lon encourages "qualified visitors" to understand and accept the truly exciting challenging opportunities that are offered by ABC of Health to help make life in America a healthier life and a more successful life - one that can be more productive and more rewarding and more enjoyable than most American adult citizens know how to achieve.

     Lon Willoughby carefully developed this revealing healthcare-related private report in an autobiographical "storybook fashion" about his life for two main reasons

     The first reason was to present this vital health-related education in an interesting, informative, and entertaining manner, and Lon used multiple short stories that will make it much easier to remember the very important educational subjects presented herein.

     The second reason was to inform "qualified visitors" about Lon's life experiences in sufficient detail that they can get to know him well and develop confidence in his natural healthcare and wellness concepts educational abilities and his abilities to educate about unfair and unethical litigation and judicial issues that are self-serving for members of the legal profession

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

     You will learn about some of the challenging life experiences that gradually helped Lon become a very competent natural healthcare consultant, nutrition consultant, and natural healthcare and wellness concepts classroom educator (and now an Internet educator). 

     Over a period of 40+ years, Lon 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)

     Lon understands that millions of those American citizens 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 citizens learn how to avoid doing harmful things that interfere with those vital natural functions

     Lon Willoughby knows how to teach "qualified visitors" how to avoid interfering with these natural functions, and he also knows how to teach our carefully selected education clients about actions that they can take to enhance those very important natural healthcare protective functions

     These are copyrighted advanced level natural healthcare concepts trade secrets that are available only to our natural healthcare concepts education clients (our Americans 4 Justice-SC private education club members).  

     Our A4J-SC private education club membership opportunities will be explained later in this report.

Confidence in Lon Willoughby

     Throughout this true health-related report, "qualified visitors" will need to be considering whether or not the author herein (Lon Willoughby) has believe-ability, credibility, and dependability about the very important health concepts and the natural healthcare and wellness concepts that he introduces in this private health-related report

     This introductory education report can enable "qualified visitors" to develop confidence in Lon's honesty and integrity, and his sense of dedication to his sincere teamwork purpose with wife Janie of educating members of our A4J private education club about very important health concepts and natural healthcare and wellness concepts, and five other very important education subjects

     Qualified visitors can get educated herein about those special opportunities with no upfront cost because this unique website uses the "free to review" education services that Lon and Janie developed for ABC of Health

     This report can also enable "qualified visitors" to develop a sense of confidence about Lon's extensive knowledge about vital advanced level natural healthcare and wellness concepts that can help A4J club members learn how to make remarkable improvements in their lifestyle and their routine natural healthcare actions

     If "qualified visitors" develop confidence about Lon Willoughby in both of those areas, then the health concepts and the natural healthcare concepts introduced in this true  autobiographical report can have super beneficial affects on their life - probably throughout the rest of their competent life

     However, if this autobiographical report does not enable some "qualified visitors" to confidently believe that these health concepts and natural healthcare education concepts are very important valid concepts that they need to know about, this may be an interesting and informative and entertaining health-related report, but some of those "qualified visitors" may not get a lot of long-term healthcare benefits from the vital health concepts and natural healthcare concepts that Lon carefully introduces herein.

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

     Be patient with the author herein; relax, and enjoy this true healthcare-related report because it will introduce some incredibly important and valuable health concepts and also natural healthcare and wellness concepts that can be vital life-improving concepts for most "qualified visitors"  and maybe for you also.

    Some of this health concepts education may be life-saving information for some "qualified visitors" and this special education may be life-saving information for you

    This introductory Advanced Natural Health Concepts website will introduce you to vital natural health concepts that can help you learn about some responsible and sensible lifestyle actions that you can take to improve your life and better protect your natural health - probably on a daily basis for the rest of your life. 

     This may be the most important health-oriented educational 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 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 educational website.  (www dot ABCofHealth dot com)

    Why does Lon use the dot above instead of a period in the website address?  Because Internet Search Engines penalize a website if it presents a website address using the period when the website address is not enabled to be an active hyperlink (link) - a link that will actually detour a viewer to that website. 

     You will see this dot technique used many times at our websites - in situations where Lon wants to illustrate the website address, but he does not want the viewer to actually detour to that website address. 

     The Internet Search Engines do not penalize the website when the dot is used in a website address instead of a period, because it is not actually a website address unless the period is used.

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

     The Two Parts of this lengthy report will introduce life-improving natural healthcare and wellness concepts that can be exceptionally important and very valuable to "qualified visitors." 

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

    You understand that Lon does not have personalized health data (laboratory reports and other personal health information) for each "qualified visitor" that reviews this introductory educational website.

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

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

     Furthermore, that is the kind of natural healthcare and wellness concepts educational business that Lon and Janie developed for ABC of Health - so we charge reasonable fees for those kinds of very valuable healthcare educational services.  Otherwise, our natural healthcare concepts education company could not stay in business.

    However, this Two Parts true autobiographical report will introduce vital healthcare concepts that can be incredibly important and valuable for qualified visitors

     The health education presented in this website can change lives for the better in remarkable ways with no upfront cost to them (due to our innovative "free to review" educational services).

     As you review this report, you will see that Lon has included some historical information that presents a review of important health concepts that can be interesting and may also be helpful to qualified visitors

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

     This special education can potentially help a lot of "qualified visitor families" who have young children at home.

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 qualified visitors daily for the rest of their life, Lon will take a few minutes to explain important helpful information about the colored text that is used frequently throughout this website.

     A lot of colored text is used herein 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, you are already in colored text viewing mode (you do not need to take the actions suggested in this subject).

     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 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 three word link command below the last line of type.

    This easy scrolling action can be done very quickly (20 to 30 seconds), and it will enable you to find and select this three word ilink 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 using a Smart Phone or Tablet, and 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.

     Whichever viewing device you are using, you will need to search for these words: View full site  That easy action will quickly get you to the bottom of this lengthy department - where you can see and then select this link command

     NOTE:  It will be helpful if you make a written note about this three word link command

     The find function will find the three word link command in this subject as the first find action.  Select the second find to get to the bottom of this lengthy department where you will see and then select the three word link command.

     NOTE:  This find function feature should also work for websites that are presented by other companies so you may want to make a note about this helpful color text procedure.

     Select the three word link command to instantly get colored text viewing (for many viewing devices).

     This special link command will not be available if you are already in colored text viewing mode.

     Activating this three word link command will also instantly take you back to the top of this Home Department so you can resume your review actions with colored text.

     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. 

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


     Some SC upstate citizens 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 help them as explained below.

     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 (ABC of Health) do not charge a fee for these very valuable introductory education services. 

     Individuals 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.   


     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 (ease of use).  He found the Google Email account may be too complex for some users, and Google made frequent changes to their Email account services.

    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

     As you have already seen, the first portion of this Home Department presents important introductory information. 

     Qualified visitors 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 natural healthcare education clients improve their life a lot.

     Lon will then present 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 American residents die prematurely each week - primarily because they had not been educated about the health-related concepts and natural healthcare concepts that are introduced in this "free to review" educational website. 

     This death rate data can help qualified visitors understand how critically important our natural healthcare and wellness concepts education services can be for many qualified visitors.

     This autobiographical report will then present information about Lon's early life while growing up on a farm in the south-eastern part of 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 for one year 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 and teaching skills as an instructor in the U.S. Air Force. He will also explain how he acquired very important critical thinking skills by working with very complex electronic systems

     Visitors will learn that Airman First Class Willoughby completed 33 weeks of complex electronic RADAR systems education in the U.S. Air Force, and he then worked as an electronics technician at a complex RADAR and air traffic control facility in Georgia for many months.

     He got out of the U.S. Air Force when his four years enlistment ended in September 1959.  Lon went back to college for one year at Gaston Technical Institute, and he was then employed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in June 1960 as a GS-7 electronics technician

     His FAA employment enabled him to acquire a lot of additional education and training about complex electronic systems.  His critical thinking skills were enhanced a lot as he acquired 17 years of work experience with the FAA on complex electronic systems that were used for air traffic control in the Southern Region of the USA (commercial air traffic, military air traffic, and private civilian air traffic).

      In September 1977, Lon was selected for a desired and requested administrative supervisory Performance Development and Evaluation Officer (PDEO) position in the Greenville/Greer area of South Carolina.

     After working in that PDEO position for two full years, he resigned from the FAA in October 1979 because he did not want to continue working for his supervisor (the Sector Manager), and he did not want to transfer with the FAA to a different location - for the very important reasons that will be explained later about those career issues

     That resignation occurred after Lon Willoughby had worked with the Federal Aviation Administration very successfully for a total of 19 years.

Lon acquires vital education

in Natural Healthcare Concepts

     Lon Willoughby then acquired a lot of special natural healthcare concepts education, and he also acquired many years of work experience managing and operating the ABC of Health corporately owned health products store in Greenville, South Carolina.  That work enabled Lon to 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 many "qualified visitors" about vital natural healthcare and wellness concepts and related nutrition supplement products.         

    This very special introductory Advanced Natural Health Concepts educational website presents very important and very valuable life improving education for "qualified visitors." 

     This very special health-related education can also be life saving information for some "qualified visitors." 

     All of the educational information presented in Part One and Part Two of this autobiographical report is in our "free to review" educational services format. 

Website Development Work

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

     WOW!!!  Lon could see clearly, more than 25 years ago, that he needed to begin learning how to use the amazing Internet to help ABC of Health be able to educate many American adult citizens about some exceptionally important natural healthcare and wellness concepts that he had already learned.

    Lon's began gradually developing website building skills and also learning about additional Internet features and services. 

     The first website that Lon developed for ABC of Health presented information about our natural health products retail store, and also presented very helpful natural healthcare and wellness concepts education for all website visitors. 

     In February 2000, Lon moved our health store on Laurens Road in Greenville to a location on Wade Hampton Blvd. that was about three blocks south of Bob Jones University (in Greenville).  The revised website then explained the availability of our free natural healthcare concepts education classes conducted weekly in our classroom at the new health store.  

     Lon moved our health store again in late December 2009 to a better store location in Mauldin (eight miles distance from our Wade Hampton location), and we began doing business in Mauldin during the first week in January 2010.   We continued business at that location until the health store was closed permanently on April 24, 2014

     Lon had gradually learned that the remarkable advantage of conducting natural healthcare concepts education classes on the Internet was that the education could be presented on a computer screen in the convenience and comfort of a person's home or residence.  He had also learned that many adult citizens in the Greenville area were getting convenient access to Internet services

     Lon could see that this Internet-based education service could eliminate the need for scheduling classroom attendance, and it could eliminate the travel time and travel expenses of classroom attendance.

     He could also see that Internet-based education services had the very important advantage of being scheduled by each individual, to accommodate their personal lifestyle schedule, and it also enabled some other members of a family to conveniently participate in this Internet-based education - at no additional cost for those family members.      

     Lon's additional Internet education eventually enabled him, as president of ABC of Health, to be able 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 South Carolina (have a primary permanent home or residence ZIP Codes of 296 - - or 293 - - ). 

     As explained previously, Lon calls those citizens "qualified visitors" when they visit this private introductory education website.

     Lon will explain later why he restricted our initial Internet educational marketing territory to only those ZIP Code areas.

     Our current Internet-based educational services enable our natural healthcare and wellness concepts education company to have the potential to improve a lot of lives for "qualified visitors" (selected natural-born American citizens living in upstate South Carolina).

     Those "qualified visitors" have a special opportunity to learn about our A4J natural healthcare concepts education services - that can help our A4J private education club members learn how to protect, defend, and extend their natural healthy life span

Two Important Questions

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

     How did Lon acquire very important education and life experiences that enabled him to become a very important educator for many qualified visitors 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 this autobiographical report can help qualified visitors answer those two important questions

     It is important for qualified visitors to learn that Lon Willoughby has not had a cold viral infection, or a flu viral infection, or a bacterial microbial infection since April 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 had just arrived from Florida driving a loaded large U-Haul 26 feet long size moving van (the largest size rental van), and he was busy unloading household furniture from that van at his vacant home in Mauldin, South Carolina.

     Lon did not realize that this individual had recently had the flu - Lon did not notice any indication that the man had been sick.  However, Lon caught a very bad case of the flu virus from that individual during that casual outdoor meeting.  Lon's flu sickness lasted several weeks and  his throat was very painful during most of that time.

     That individual routinely had a bad habit of getting too close to people when he talked with them.  He 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 that 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 April 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 good quality face mask and social distancing are both very important actions to take when trying to avoid getting infected, or causing an infection for other people with the coronavirus. 

     That dangerous virus is currently active in many people who do not know yet that they have the virus.  The virus is also active in many places where infected people (known and unknown infections) have been breathing and exhaling contaminated air.

     It is important to understand that one can get the coronavirus when another person is not present at the moment by simply breathing some air that an infected person recently exhaled.  The virus can float around in the air at that location for a while and still be dangerous.

     People in the USA have died by the tens of thousands because they foolishly and stubbornly refused to follow the well-published advice of reputable healthcare experts about the two easy protective actions stated above (good quality face mask and a minimum of six feet social distancing from each other). 

     Those easy actions can greatly improve one's potential for avoiding contact with the coronavirus - or spreading the virus - and the more dangerous delta variant of that virus

     Lon and Janie are responsibly convinced that the single vaccine shot (Johnson & Johnson) or the two shots dosage (other company brands) is a sensible thing to do.  They have both had their two-shot dosages - as soon as they could get each of those timed free vaccine doses. 

     They both got their free booster vaccine shot on November 3, 2021.

Personal Life Information

     Lon and Janie's personal life information herein can help a lot of adults, and the relevance of this information will be understood better by a qualified visitor when they complete their review of the very important healthcare educational report at this introductory website (Part One of Lon's autobiographical healthcare related 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 could capably educate our natural healthcare education clients about how they could improve and protect their precious natural health in practical, responsible, and sensible ways that were cost-effective healthcare actions.  

     Lon has learned a lot of very important natural healthcare and wellness concepts since year 1970, when he began to focus some attention on learning about natural healthcare conceptsHe diligently and responsibly learned additional healthcare education concepts as each year passed since he started that education process in 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 since year 2010.

     One of Lon's primary ABC of Health objectives for many years has been to enable our healthcare 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 A4J private education club members (our education clients living in selected upstate areas of South Carolina) strive to accomplish for improving their own health and lifestyle and also accomplish for their spouse and for dependent children who live full-time at home with their parents?

     Over the past 40+ years, Lon focused his natural healthcare educational objectives on some major health problems in America -

like cardiovascular problems (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 healthcare improvements such as:

using positive thoughts to improve mental attitudes, and improving nutrition in the diet by using helpful enzymes, herbs, quality minerals, probiotics, quality protein supplements, and quality vitamin supplements. 

     Lon's natural healthcare concepts research and studies and his  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  improve bowel health and improve important bowel functions.

   12.  He also learned how to help our A4J club members 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 A4J private education club members 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 natural healthcare and wellness 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 A4J club member healthcare education clients to some of those important sources of healthcare education information when that specific information can be helpful to one of our A4J private education club members.

     He will refer an A4J club member to other healthcare experts when their healthcare expertise could be helpful - usually by referring an A4J club member to one of their books or their website education that can be helpful to that A4J club member

     Lon understands that he does not know everything that one of our A4J club members may need to consider for improving their health.  Lon is responsible about observing copyright protection standards of special natural healthcare concepts that were copyrighted by other people

     Lon will also refer an A4J club member to medical profession doctors, when those medical services may be helpful to an A4J club member

     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

     Visitors will also learn herein that Lon Willoughby 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.


     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.


     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 more than a thousand of those type books in the marketplace.

     Qualified visitors will need some good advice from a dietitian, or a nutrition consultant, or a natural healthcare consultant (like Lon Willoughby) to narrow that BIG EDUCATION PROBLEM down to just a few books - maybe 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 "qualified visitors" living in the upstate area of South Carolina.  Lon can help those special visitors after they get security qualified to join our Americans4Justice-SC club and get full access to our remarkable membership educational 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 their primary permanent home or residence 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, "qualified visitors" will be detoured to our main Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts education website to continue this education with Part Two of Lon'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 present additional education about the five major causes of premature deaths in the USA.  This special education is also presented in our "free to review" format for "qualified visitors." 

     Our main Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts educational website will also identify some natural healthcare actions that "qualified visitors" 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 - primarily 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 "qualified visitors" understand why this would be a very difficult task and would likely be a very risky and dangerous educational task for our natural healthcare and wellness concepts education company

     You will likely be surprised and literally 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 can be very dangerous work that can have tragic consequences for the natural healthcare and wellness concepts educators

     You will learn herein that there are powerful forces (financially and politically) operating within the USA that take in billions of dollars each year by providing conventional medical services and pharmaceutical drugs for inadequately educated medical patients. 

     It is financially advantageous for those powerful forces to try to prevent adult residents in the United States from getting educated about very important alternative health type natural healthcare and wellness concepts - like some of the education at this special website.

     Lon's healthcare-related report will help "qualified visitors" learn about the plan of progressive actions that Lon developed to help make some very important progress in this very difficult and risky and potentially dangerous natural healthcare concepts education challenge for "qualified visitors" (natural-born American adult citizens who are Christian-oriented and live in selected ZIP Code areas of upstate South Carolina - as explained previously herein).

     You will learn herein that Lon has developed natural healthcare and wellness concepts that can enable many "qualified visitors" 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 prevent American citizens from having good access to those natural healthcare concepts education services have been depriving  American citizens of a constitutionally protected right to access those kinds of educational services.

     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 ("qualified visitors"). 

     ABC of Health selected ZIP Code areas of 296 - - and 293 - - as our initial limited selected education territory because our Natural Healthcare and Wellness Concepts Education Company is located in Greenville County South Carolina (ZIP Codes 296 - - ) and ZIP Codes 293 - - are in a fairly close adjoining area.     

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 was very disappointed in the series of medical doctors that he had consulted.  It seemed like they knew very little 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 four 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 our natural healthcare concepts education services to selected American adult citizens in upstate areas of South Carolina (qualified visitors).  

     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 "qualified visitors" to some of the very valuable natural healthcare and wellness concepts that Lon discovered and copyrighted during many years of ongoing natural healthcare concepts education.      

     He continued that natural healthcare and wellness 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 also very valuable

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

     His special education about natural healthcare and wellness concepts since year 1970, and his many years of natural healthcare work experiences can now be used to help thousands of "qualified visitors" (in upstate SC) learn how to live a much better healthy life.

Lon's Early Life On The Farm

     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. was able to help 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, the way that most modern day American residents can do easily. 

    Qualified 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 during the 1900's

     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.  Amazingly, 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. 

     Scientist also had to be very careful when they reported their scientific work because other scientist might try to claim ownership of some of their scientific discoveries. 

     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 with some Royal Society members about his reported discoveries. 

     However, scientist at that time 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 save the lives of millions of people who were getting sick (microbe infections) and dying at young ages.  

     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 very serious infections that could cause tragic sickness and death for many people (but especially for children).

     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 liquids - milk, beer, wine, and 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. 

     Louis 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, Louis Pasteur had completed a lot of college level education, was a college professor, 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. 

    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 microscopic scientific discoveries of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek

    Leeuwenhoek was truly 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 Louis Pasteur

      As a result of very important education started by 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).
