Parhatsathid Nabadalung, aka Ted, from Bangkok, Thailand

June 2, 2021 update

From 2003 to 2015, Ted from Bangkok, Thailand, was one of the top contributors on Earth Clinic, helping thousands of people worldwide recover from debilitating diseases. Tragically, the famous Ted had a massive stroke in 2015 and was unable to correspond with the many Earth Clinic readers seeking his help after that.

We were in constant contact with Ted's sister for a few years after his stroke. However, a couple of years ago, she simply stopped corresponding with us.

Three weeks ago, one of Ted's old clients from Australia flew into Bangkok and sent Earth Clinic an email telling us he was going to see if he could visit Ted and find out how he was doing.

We told "J." that we had not heard from Ted's lovely sister Nok since the summer of 2018, despite many attempts at contacting her. Emails, texts, and Skype phone calls all went unreturned.

 J. had the concierge in his hotel call Ted's home phone number. After a few attempts, a woman in her 50s finally picked up and proceeded to tell the concierge in Thai that Ted was remarried, had two children, and was living in Bali and working in a massage clinic.

When the concierge asked the woman for Ted's phone number in Bali, she refused to give it to him.

Anyone who knows what Ted went through with two massive brain aneurysms, will know this is impossible. When we last heard from Ted's sister in 2018, Ted was completely bedridden, living at his mother's house, and had two full-time nurses looking after him.

Ted's client then was able to get ahold of Ted's friend Lux, who was Ted's best man at his wedding in 2015, who now lives in Bali and works as a massage therapist at a local holistic client.  Lux told J. he had not received news of Ted in a few years, like the rest of us.

A number of people we know from Ted's circle have tried to contact Nok and her husband Barry in the past two weeks but have not received any reply. They have simply dropped off the map.

We have very sadly come to the conclusion that Ted may have passed away a couple of years ago and that his sister did not want to upset our community by telling us.

We are very sorry to give you this news. 

If anything changes and we hear from a family member, we will update you immediately.

We asked Ted in 2006 to tell us a little bit more about himself and his background. This was his reply.

08/05/2006: Ted writes, "Was born in Bangkok, Thailand but studied in the U.S. from 1965-1981, in more than 25 high schools, and four different colleges and universities, and also further pursued undergraduate and graduate in two more countries majoring in arts, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, computer, and business, before settling down in the field of computers.

My hobby is in the area of health and health research, where funding mostly comes from part-time teaching in computer auditing and computer maintenance. You can say I spend more time in my hobby then I do with my work!

Early interests in medicine was a bit unusual for me. When I was about 2 1/2 years old, I learned that coal tar products can be used to treat cancer. I could not possibly be born if it hadn't been for my mother's craving for oranges (yes vitamin C is a cure for miscarriage and she ate by the bushels!), as she already had two miscarriages previously.

My father first met my mother, believe it or not, from his lifetime persistent sinus condition, where radiation therapy (radium) didn't work. He was was cured from just taking one month's large dose of vitamin C, from some other patient my mother met who said it cured his sinus.

You can say that if it hadn't been for vitamin C, my mother would not have met my father, and my mother would have also suffered miscarriage and I wouldn't have been born! And my first interests in any vitamin was also vitamin C with publication of Linus Pauling on vitamin C and the common cold! Funny thing about vitamin C is that a couple of years ago, at about aged 43, I was having white hair but I was AGAIN cured by vitamin C with a little help from vitamin B complex.

It was not until sometime around 1973 where a major epidemic of the flu in Texas while going on vacation that I was afflicted with flu that I learned that zinc was a cure and that sugar caused the flu to get worse, especially drinking coke, or anything sweet. It lead me to conclude of acidity problems that I first started to use sodium bicarbonate to treat this problem based on indirect references by Edgar Cayce. That early interest caused me to pursue research as a hobby from 1971 at age about 13 years old and thereafter, I was able a year or so to read about three times the entire book, Reader's Digest Family Medicine (can't remember the exact title), and also read Prevention Magazine.


I also pursued with great interest in the early 1970s before Sandy and Pearson, on vitamin E and vitamin C as well as zinc. Most of my practice stems on this early use of baking soda, zinc, magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin E during that period. Today I am now pursuing simple chemicals as basis for antibiotics as a more safer forms, as well magnetic therapies, electromedicine, scalar technologies, sound therapies, water energy transfer, vibrational medicine, and various other modalities as a treatment for many potentially fatal diseases. Most of the time I spend is answering emails on health questions.

Right now (2006) I am doing hands on experiments such as creating stem cells inside your body using low level electricity, mineral, and nutrients instead of the more expensive highly political stem cells currently in used as a method to treat brain damage and other conditions of old age (senescence). This method of creating stem cells is also infinitely cheaper then the current form of treatment in used."

Over the years, I have read accounts of doctors, nurses, and healers successfully using "natural forms" of treating disease and illness being "disappeared" or dying mysteriously. Is it possible that something more sinister would explain the lack of information about Ted and his family?

I was sorry to read the story about Ted, but it was nice to know. It's sometimes very peculiar to some, how people respond to life. I can't imagine his family being as malicious it would have been if they purposely held his surmised death to hurt us. They would then be doing what they thought was best. We all want that. We then must accept it from all. We all don't see the world the same way. Peace to you, Ted, as you live on in your legacy.

I am so thankful for Ted, Earth Clinic archiving his email responses and for continuing to look into what has happened with Ted, (Parhatsathid Nabadalung).

He remains in our minds, in our thoughts, and in our hearts. I do miss him and believe if there's no response from his sister or family it's probably due to intervention. I know eventually we will find out.

Maybe the sister is still getting some monetary support from Ted's old clients for his medical costs and she does not want the money to dry out.. and hence keeps the details under wraps?

My comments are that I feel gratitude for and admire with much appreciation, the contribution this site has given to people on this earth; the information about alternatives that we can choose for our own health. In addition, we must all accept responsibility for our own due diligence in researching our own conditions.

I also am very interested to know about Ted and his condition, if he is well, and hope that he is being looked after.

Thank you, and kindest regards.


EC: Hi,

We tried calling Ted's home a couple of weeks ago. No one picked up. Then sent a text message to his sister Nok's cell phone. No reply. The last time Nok posted on her Facebook account was in the fall of 2019. We'll keep trying. Concerned to say the least.

Hi there, was just wondering how Ted is doing lately.

EC: Hi Nicole,

Unfortunately, we have not had an update from Ted's sister Nok in 1.5 years, which is very unusual. We wrote, texted and Skype called her, but received no response. We hope he is okay. We will post as soon as we get an update from someone who knows him.

Replied by Hope Ted is Well

Is Nok ok? Why was he "taken away" to a "nursing home"? Against his will? They don't do natural remedies in homes. What happened to him? I remember reading that he wasn't well but there were no details. Why is remedies did not work this time? His sister does not reply... is she ok or part of this coup? I now see right column he was ARRESTED? WTH?? I mean that's Thailand, NOT Burma! :-/

How very sad to hear Ted is being taken away. His protocol of sodium bicarbonate and lemon etc along with his mix of turmeric, ginger etc to sort out acid reflux etc has made such a huge difference to my life, I couldn't even start to thank him enough. He is clearly a very generous and wise soul and will be greatly missed on this site. I hope he finds good medicines and peace in the countryside and I will bless his name with every meal I eat! What a wonderful person he must be. May he receive all the earth blessings possible to help him recover.

I feel sorry for Ted, that he is being shifted from Bangkok to up north. All said and done, Bangkok will have better medical facilities than any place in the up north, and God forbid if any emergency comes up, he will again have to be brought to Bangkok.

Can't there be a way that Ted's care can be given to his mother and sister. I am shocked, that the person who gave his life in treating unknown people, has to go through this kind of harassment in the hands of one person. There should be some way out. I am sorry I have used strong words, but I feel hurt the way things are coming up. Surely he deserves better love and care from every body around him. I pray for him and wish him all the Luck to get out of this problem and start writing on the Earth Clinic.

With lots and lots of Love

Hi everyone,

Here's the email I sent out yesterday to all our e-newsletter subscribers in case you didn't see it. I tried to call Nok last night and again this morning at about 7pm Bangkok time, but wasn't able to talk to her. It's now 10:30pm in Bangkok and Ted will be leaving in the morning.

EC's IN box has at least 400 emails in it for Ted at the moment that I have been sending to Nok, one at a time.


*Last Chance to Send a Message to Ted*

​Dear Earth Clinic Members,

Thank you so much for all your loving prayers for Ted the past few weeks. I believe they made a world of difference. I am sorry I was unable to update everyone with specific details about what was happening -- I did not have permission to do so. Describing the horrible situation in a public email might have endangered him further. Ted will be leaving for a new state nursing home on February 11th and after 2 months, he will be going to live with his wife's parents in another province. This may be one of the last chances you have to send Ted a message, so please quickly respond to this email with any messages to him. We will forward it to his sister Nok so she can read it to him before he leaves. She told me he cries when she reads to him your emails of gratitude and love.

After meeting him in September for the first time, I can tell you that he is one of the kindest, gentlest and most self-sacrificing of men. He cares only for the well being of others.


Last email from Nok:

Dear Deirdre,

Ted has already had about 7 Physical Therapy sessions and several acupuncture sessions. He will be in the state operated nursing home in a few days ( February 11th onwards ) and he will be there for about 2 months. Sadly, after his 2 months of being in the state operated nursing home, Tina is planning to take Ted to her parents' home in her home village province where she says Ted will stay there permanently with her parents and relatives. She feels that the the upcountry weather and Ted being surrounded by her parents and many relatives will help Ted to be better. She says that the medical services in upcountry provinces is cheap, unlike the medical services in Bangkok, which is very expensive. Mother prefers Ted to be at home with her, but Tina is insistent that Ted has to be with her parents in her upcountry home village province. Mother explained to Tina that even though it is true that upcountry medical services are cheap, it is not as professional and the medical equipment in the upcountry hospitals are not as complete as the hospitals in Bangkok. Tina told Mother that the fresh upcountry weather will be good for Ted, and she doesn't want to spend a lot of money for medical care/ treatments for Ted.

Warm Regards,

Ted is a beautiful shining soul who has single handedly helped hundreds, likely even thousands, of people. Karma should dictate that this wonderful man receive only blessings and the good will that he has given to all of us. Ted has given of himself and of his knowledge and shared them with people he would never hope to meet and did so freely and willingly, and improved the quality of the lives of so many others. God Bless you, Ted. Your soul is bright and shiny because you have helped so many. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have given. I know that you will receive your rewards in Heaven, but I also dearly hope you can find physical comfort and healing while you're still down here with us.

Dear Ted.

I don't know if you will get this message, but I wanted to post something here for you.

I used to look at your website years ago, and recently found it again. You have a wonderful talent for helping people, and I even read of a man who was at the point of suicide who found your remedy for skin mites. He used it successfully and I'm sure he was so grateful. In fact I'm sure there are hundreds and hundreds who are!

I'm also a health professional and I know how difficult it can be to have a serious condition yourself, when we are used to giving the healing advice. There are many of us praying for you, so please remember that from all over the world we believe you will overcome.

Don't give up, and keep positive that you will get well.


Dear Ted, I want to thank you for all your advice on EC. This site has saved me from unnecessary visits to "medical professionals" who are trained NOT to think outside the box. I just wanted to reiterate how much you are loved and appreciated here. Love, KT

Dear Wonderful People of Earth Clinic,

Today I visited Ted at his nursing home, which is 1.5 hours outside of Bangkok. Many of you might not know this, but even though Ted has long written remedies on Earth Clinic, we have never met! My showing up in his room today was a total surprise and it was a very happy meeting. He had absolutely no idea who I was when I walked in, but beamed when I told him. He couldn't believe I had come all the way from Atlanta to see him. He immediately wanted to know how old I was and so we shared our ages. It was very very sweet.

I am extremely relieved and thankful to finally be able to share first-hand with you how Ted is doing.

Ted is totally paralyzed on his left side. However, his mind is quite intact and improving day by day. His memory is incredible; he remembered things about me and about Earth Clinic that even I had forgotten! I thought he started posting on EC in 2003, but he told me today it was actually 2001 when he first posted. He told me he found the early Earth Clinic site to be "way out there" but he was still inspired to post his remedies on it. He remembered that Earth Clinic was called Healers-Network for a few years and that I changed it back to Earth Clinic (its original name) in 2003.

One of the first things he said after meeting me was that dogs really like him because of his mange cure, which he thinks is the most popular cure on Earth Clinic. I told him that was true, he had saved the livesof tens of thousands of dogs around the world with his H202 and Borax Remedy.

Ted did most of the talking today and it was nonstop! He wants to update all of his remedies on Earth Clinic, but tells me that will take a few years. He did repeatedly mention the importance of L-Lysine and Methylene Blue. He also went on about the pancreas.

Ted is very soft spoken and still absolutely focused on curing people. He spoke very fast and I couldn't understand a lot of what he said. However, it is remarkable how good his English is after the stroke. Occasionally, he would repeat the same sentence over and over again.

The nursing home he had been in since August is basically a newer private home that was turned into a nursing home with a few beds. Ted is in a private room on the ground floor with A/C. I think it's the only private room in the home. There are another 3 beds in the living room area. He is receiving P/T 3 times a week. He is constantly shifting his weight around on the side that is not paralyzed. His sister Nok told me that Ted took a few steps during P/T last week, according to the owner of the nursing home. Frankly, I don't know how that's possible given that he can't move his left leg or arm. He told me that the shoulder on his paralyzed side was dislocated in P/T a few weeks ago. Ted is eager to try stem cell therapy. He also talked a lot about the book The Body Electric.

Ted's family is trying to move Ted back to Bangkok ASAP, where he will be less isolated. At his current location, he doesn't have many visitors. He is very social and I think having more social interaction will be key to his recovery.

Questions seem to be difficult for Ted right now. When I asked a question such as "Would you like me to move the pillow", he would stare at me for a few seconds and then talk about something else. He did answer a few questions when we were in a conversational flow and understood my answers to his questions like, "How long did it take you to fly from Atlanta to Bangkok". (Answer - 24 hours).

I will visit Ted a few more times while I am in Bangkok and update everyone again! Normally I'd tell you to send in your good wishes so I could relay them to Ted, but now that I have seen him, I know Ted really only wants to talk about remedies. LOL! If you have a question about a remedy, send it and I'll try to ask him about it.

Signing off from Bangkok, where it is now Friday at 12:40 am.

T Y Deirdre for visiting Ted. I am sure your time with him will be uplifting. The picture in my mind as I was reading your report was concluded with your positive energy hands holding his and maybe alternating to the wounded areas.

Also in the area of healing, if it is possible, try and get Ted a portable I-Pad or less expensive MP3 player loaded with a variety of Love 528 Music/Harmonics. 1-2 hrs per day listening to these healing tones (w/ headphones) will be one more item on the healing recipe list. If this seems like a good idea, I can send you some MP3's (that I often listen too) Love 528 tracts by e-mail at your request.

Double or triple strength Fish Oil softgels comes to mind as a great adjunct w/ the music to promote healing, along with Chlorella Extracts.

Hi Deidre,

Thank you for the latest update on Ted's health. You must have shocked him so pleasantly, casually walking into his room and introducing yourself! I am sure your visit boosted him up tremendously. Thank you for taking that long trip for all of us. I also want to add that if Ted does not have an IPad he can listen to healing binaural music via his phone, using headphones.

Replied by Deirdre

Thank you everyone for your kindness and support. It is appreciated!

TimH, your healing vision was quite correct. Ted let me treat him yesterday. He knows a bit about energy healing apparently and grabbed my hand at one point to show me that he can run energy too. He of many talents -- we only know but a few.

Dave, I think I can answer your question. I don't want to ask Ted this as I think it will distress him.

Everyone, please be forewarned - the below details may upset you.

As you will read somewhere in the EC archives, Ted had an "accident" about 5 years ago. He didn't want me to write the details of it on EC, so we referred to it as an accident. But really it was no accident. He was deliberately thrown head first into a thick glass hotel window and suffered a massive concussion on the right side of his head.

I paid my respects to his mother and sister yesterday and privately asked his sister about the window incident. She confirmed what he had told me and added a few additional details. Ted refused to tell anyone who did it to him, but did warn his family before it happened that there were some locals in Bangkok who didn't like that he was curing people with his remedies. Ted went to the ER after managing to get himself home in a taxi with his head bleeding, face swollen and right eye almost popped out (sorry for the graphic imagery, but now you can get an idea of how bad the concussion was). His mother, a retired nurse, insisted he get a brain scan right away. Apparently he had bleeding in the brain but the doctor at the time said it wasn't "bad enough" to operate on. However, the brain trauma was quite apparent after that according to his family. He walked more slowly and no longer wrote long emails/posts.

Prior to his brain surgery this past June, which occured only a couple hours after he collapsed, they took a brain scan. The neurosurgeon, who was retired but brought in to operate on Ted because he's one of the best in Bangkok, rushed in to where the family was waiting and asked them if Ted had a prior stroke because the scan indicated a past bleeding in the brain. They said no and he replied, "Are you absolutely sure?" They then told him about the concussion. The sister said after that, the neurosurgeon and his team literally ran down the hall with Ted on the gurney to get him into surgery.

Sorry for the grim details but hopefully this answers your question about why he had a stroke. Very sad.

Hi everyone,

I got back last night from Bangkok. Sorry I didn't post another update while I was there. It was an extremely sad and distressing week, which I will tell you about in detail soon. Just need a little time to recuperate before I write an update.

Replied by Deirdre
(Earth Clinic)

I would like to ask everyone to please direct their kind & loving energy to Ted. He could really use it right now, as could his dear 85 year old mother and sister, who are dealing with enormous amounts of unnecessary stress.

As you know, Ted was moved by his wife to a nursing home 60 km outside of Bangkok away from his friends and family into a nursing home where a p/t dislocated Ted's shoulder the first week he was there. Ted is very aware of everything going on. He is enormously depressed about his situation and told me repeatedly that he is being held against his will in the nursing home.

I don't want to enrage everyone with all the horrible and stressful details, but I will tell you that when I went to visit Ted on the last day, I found a woman hiding on the floor by his bed who had been hired by his wife at midnight the night before to record every visitor that comes into Ted's room and to report it immediately to his wife. Yes, sadly, when Ted's wife found out I was visiting Ted, she hired someone to spy on poor Ted. Moreover, she also enlisted the nursing home staff to secretly videotape everyone (i.e. me) coming into the nursing home to visit Ted. As if he doesn't already have enough on his plate, Ted now has someone sitting on an air mattress on the floor of his room monitoring him every second of the day. And to further his agony, Ted told me that she lies on the mattress right next to his bed and texts all day.

I have now been told by Ted's sister that Ted's wife called them last night to insist that we immediately send her all the funds raised by Earth Clinic and the GoFundMe campaign into her own bank account. If we do not do so, she is threatening to send in "negative posts" to discredit EC and me.

I hope to post some positive news about this situation one day, but in the meantime, please send comforting and loving prayers to Ted. He feels utterly powerless and abandoned and really needs our personal and collective help.

Thank you so much.

HI U DEIRDRE, , , , , , , , , , , , , , here is what I get from your post. First, Ted's wife is in charge and wants a monetary gain from his exercise on EC. It appears that she is not dumb.

EC is dealing with a foreign country and we are helpless to help under the current circumstances. It appears that the EC members can only help if a lawyer is on this situation.

I have good vibes for Ted, but I think his time on EC is over. You are dealing with a different culture.

That is my take and as all know, I speak plain. This is truly sad, but so is life, least EC would not exist.

Myself, I 'd tell Ms Ted to stick it where the sun does not shine. If EC cows, then I'll be disappointed.

Hi Diedre, how sad to read your recent report regarding Ted. I'm so glad you managed to visit him though and I'm sure he is happy to have met you too. This type of blackmail ( regarding wife wanting cash) and threatening to discredit e.c. and yourself is fairly common over here especially where cash is involved and I wonder if she (wife) would actually be educated enough to post on e.c. Myself and family are so sad to hear about this and I really hope Ted's mother and sister can sort out this mess for him? ORH suggests a lawyer but I would recommend an American or EU lawyer who understands Thai law and hope the situation wouldnt come to this as the funds would diminish quickly with a Thai lawyer on the case. Let's all hope for a positive outcome for Ted.

Hi Deirdre,

Maybe we should use some of the money from Ted's Earth Clinic friends to hire a good lawyer to help him get a divorce. His medical POA should go to his Mother or sister.

I just wanted to say, I stumbled upon this website from trying to find cures on Dermodectic Mange for my SO's 11 year old dog, who suffered from it since a puppy. I found a site charging $160 for the solutions, then I stumbled upon "Ted from Bangkoks Remedy"... Which was basically a few dollars! I then did more research on him and Earth Clinic, and found out the saddest news on the state of his health right now and his condition! My heart aches deeply for him, since I see he is a very good man, who just wants to help others, and is not a greedy person.

I am sending out Prayers from God to heal him, and to be with him by his side. I am SO grateful to have found this site and will be reading all of his blogs. I pray that he gets taken care of, and is in good hands, and is protected by light from any darkness!

This site, and "Ted from Bangkok" should be put in the spotlight, and not hard to find, as I have been into natural cures for a few years now, and never seen this site :(. The media and Western Medicine, and "Big pharma" do not want the public to know the massive benefits of Natural cures, and it is not right. I pray that these type of remedies spread out to everyone, and that Ted recovers quickly and painlessly and he is protected from any bad people in his life!

I'm finally a new member today but have been a regular lurker on EarthClinic for many years- this entire site is a treasure trove for me of knowlege and shared experience.

Most especially Ted's wisdom & life experience has been so very helpful in teaching me how to help my chemically sensitive family to successfully manage our assorted health difficulties without resorting to chempharma.

I've just been reading the new member guidelines and saw the notice of Ted's sudden illness back in June, I am shocked and very sad to hear the bad news and hope you will pass forward these condolences from a long-time student who always sat in the back of the class, as it were.

The Creator does truly work in mysterious ways... I don't understand *why* this happened, but wish to offer my encouragement and prayers for Ted's recovery. one thing I do know from all my own years of struggling for good health, is that The Great Creator is very near to those who struggle and are in pain... and HE cares for every bird that falls.

EC: Thank you, Yellowbird. We will send your post to Ted's sister so she can read it to Ted. He's very happy to hear messages like this.

(Earth Clinic)

After finishing a 30 day stint at Dr. Torsak's famous Bangkok clinic, funded by amazing and generous Earth Clinic contributors, Ted arrived back home this morning at his mother's house. I spoke to his sister about an hour ago. Ted has improvement on his left side, but needs months more of strenuous rehabilitation.

I am sorry to report that unless Ted takes legal action of his own accord, his wife has found him a bed in a free state nursing home 3 hours from Bangkok. He will be placed in a crowded dorm room and have very little access to care, rehabilitation, his wife and his family and friends. Ted will be departing for this nursing home within the next week or two unless he chooses a different course. Ted is fully aware of what is about to happen to him; unless he chooses to divorce his wife, Ted will spend the rest of his life there.

Sadly, we are forced to pause our medical fundraising campaign for him unless circumstances change and Ted decides to stay in Bangkok with his mother and sister, who have found a wonderful new rehabilitation facility for him.

Ted's sister and mother want everyone to know how grateful they are for your incredible generosity and ongoing prayers of healing and support. They are still hopeful that Ted will change his mind.

To Ted and family members, I unfortunately just learned about Ted's health situation. It's also the first time I got to put Ted's face to the person I've been reading about for so long on earth clinic. I myself have had an aneurysm several years ago and am doing well recovering. People wouldn't even know if I don't tell them. I share that with you to let you know that amazing and miraculous recoveries can and does happen, so keep the faith.

Know that I am hugging you from the other side of the world and I am praying for all of you. May the healing light of the Medicine Buddha and healing energies from all that are praying for you shine upon you all and help you all pass through this crisis. Thank you to all those who have been there by his side to help him as well as contributing from afar to his medical bills. Should there be another fundraising event, staff from earth clinic please notify me via e-mail, I would like to contribute. Get well soon Ted!

Latest email from Ted's sister Nok..


Hello Deirdre,

Thank you for your email and thank you for sending me the nice messages from your readers for Ted. I read them to him before he left for the state owned nursing home yesterday morning around 6:30 a.m. He smiled when I told him people from all over the world were praying for him and were sending him good wishes and love. He said to say hello to you and that he wants to fully recover so that he can continue helping people with his remedies.

When he arrived at the state owned nursing home, he didn't like it. He kept asking to go back to Mother's home. Considering the circumstances, he is much safer at the state owned nursing home. They have a daily physical therapy session over there. We will also send Ted's physical therapist and acupuncturist over there on a weekly basis.

Since Ted's stem cell injection, he is speaking louder and clearer. He smiles and laughs more often. His left leg is still jerking sometimes.

A day before he left for the state owned nursing home, we got a Buddhist Nun to perform a protection ceremony for him, that included chants for his full recovery and healing. She said he will be allright.

We have arranged for relatives to visit Ted often at the state owned nursing home.

Uncle is negotiating with Tina for her to allow Ted to come back to Mother's home after his two months at Sirinthorn Nursing Home is finished. We hope he will be successful in his negotiations with her.

Uncle had a dream that Ted was walking again and Buddhist spirits were surrounding Ted, and giving him blessings. I also had a dream, that he was walking around, and in good health.

Thank you for your concern, kindness and friendship for Ted.

Warm Regards,

From Nok, sent on 2/15/16

Hello Deirdre,

I and my relatives went to visit Ted at Sirinthorn Nursing Home a few days ago. He is in Bed Number One ( Men's Ward ). As you enter the door, he is on the far left side. When he saw us, he cried. He kept saying he wanted to go back to Mother's home. He has his own Private Doctor and Private Nurse. He has a daily Physical Therapy session at the Nursing Home for an hour a day. The Nursing Home has activities for him to do, such as throwing and catching balls, Memory Games and they have a Speech Therapist who helps him to speak clearly and encourages him to speak ( even without this Speech Therapist, Ted speaks clearly and quite a bit anyway. We brought him a lot of snacks and drinks ( low fat milk, fruit juice drinks, chocolate milk, etc. ) I think he was very hungry because he was happily chomping nonstop on the big fish sticks we bought him. He looked very cute chomping on the big fish sticks.

We were with him for about two hours, and his caregiver told us that Ted fully cooperates during the Physical Therapy sessions and daily activities there. His new friends there told us that Ted is very smart and has excellent memory during the Activities time ( we already knew about his intelligence and excellent memory. The staff are already fond of Ted ( we aren't surprised about this ). He gets three meals a day. Yesterday, they made him pineapple soup, and rice congee. He loves pineapples, and his caregiver makes sure he gets pineapples often. Usually, we buy pineapples and his caregiver cuts up the pineapples into small pieces. Sometimes, he eats them fresh but he loves pineapple soup.

Ted's friends at his former work places and at the University he used to teach at have visited him. They told us that he loves talking and he sometimes tells them jokes.

There are no shopping centers or mini marts near this Nursing Home, so we have to buy stuff for Ted and his caregiver from outside. There is only the Food Court Building, which is opposite of the Men's Ward building where Ted is at. There are lots of trees and plants surrounding this Nursing Home.

Mother calls up Ted and talks to him on the phone on a daily basis. Ted told his Mother that he misses her, and wants to come home. Mother asked Ted what he wanted, so she can buy it for him. Ted told her that he doesn't want anything from her - he just wants to see her and be at home with her. Ted asked Mother if she was okay, and how is her health now. Ted kept telling Mother over and over again that he wanted to come back to Mother's Home, that he missed her and wanted to be with her.

I will let you know of any further updates concerning Ted.

Warm Regards,

Below is an email we received from Charlotte (UK) this morning with the latest update regarding Ted:

Dear wonderful Earth Clinic,

Today I have helped Ted's dear friend Lux Cochrane to set up a JustGiving page to help raise the much needed funds for Ted's operation to relieve his brain haemorrhage.


I have been blessed in recent years to be introduced to Ted and of course to my #1 resource EarthClinic. I have met him many times in Bangkok as I work with Asia and have come to know many affiliates of his - all incredible people. Today I received the below concerning update and felt the need with Lux to step in and help create a platform that we hope you will also share. Ted's friend confirms:

"Today I spoke with Tan. Tan has been watching over Ted at the hospital. According to Tan, Ted collapsed on Thursday and was taken to Bumrungaard hospital. The Diagnosis was a blood clot in the brain and required immediate surgery. The surgery was performed by Dr. Yot. As I understand it, Dr. Yot is a well respected Brain surgeon who was retired. K. Tan was confident Dr. Yot is a good man and well respected surgeon. The surgery was apparently successful and Dr. Yot was confident Ted could re-cover with therapy and that Ted was showing signs of responding positively to the surgery.

There was no money to pay the bill at Bumrungard, so Ted was taken from the comfort of a private hospital to a government hospital. I will attempt to reach Dr. Yot directly myself and report back after I visit the hospital tomorrow. According to Tan we cannot expect much assistence from Ted's family at this moment. Everyone who possibly can are going to have to help on Ted's surgery and convalescent and recovery costs. I hope one of us can set up a page where Ted's friends and former patients can contribute to help Ted out with these costs...apparently surgery and hospital costs are over 700,000 baht. K. Tan so far has been the only person dealing with this and she has minimal resources. I will try and get a full accounting on this tomorrow.

From Tan's report, Ted's status as of 3pm this afternoon (Sunday) was that he was conscious was possibly understanding what was being said to him but could not respond which for Ted and his infinite medical knowledge will be understandably frustrating. He is paralyzed on one side of his body. Has been physically restrained as he has kicked and struck at the bed frame with his one moveable arm and leg. Please stand by to help where you can and solicit assistance from all friends and former patience of Ted that you might know of who would be willing to help. Lord knows there are thousands of us out there that Ted helped and tried to help without asking much from any of us......Now it is our turn?.."

I hope EarthClinic will also do all you can to support Ted in helping collectively relieve this financial burden.

Warmest regards from London, Charlotte

Thank you for your caring email. Ted was just moved today to a new nursing home facility where he will receive much more extensive physical therapy. He will be there at least for the next few weeks. Then I believe he may be moving again to another nursing home. You can look it up at http://kluaynamthai2.com/index-eng.php. He's in room 405.

The docs had put him on sedatives since his surgery, but even though he told his family and friends to stop the drugs, the new care facility that Ted was moved to last week has increased the amount of sedatives. Ted is coherent for only 2 minutes at a time because of these drugs.

Please, if there is anyone who knows about sedatives and patients recovering from a stroke, can you please write in with information about how this may be harming Ted's chances of recovery? Unfortunately, we don't know the name of the drug being given to Ted.

Additionally, if one of your relatives has ever had a stroke, can you please tell us what was done during the first few months of their recovery? How many hours a day of P/T, what medications, supplements, stem cell therapy, etc. The more details you can provide, the better!

We will try to send the information to Ted's wife (whom he married only in February) to see if we can help this sad situation improve.

Thank you so much.

It disturbed me to read that the requests for more sedatives came from Ted's wife. Disturbing, because she probably has more power than anyone in the family in advocating his course of care.

The doctors will take her orders over that of other family members and that's troubling, since he made it very clear that he did NOT want such measures used, and she's not respecting his wishes.

Ted will remain in my prayers.

I am so saddened to hear of Ted's condition. I cannot offer any advice but I hope there's lots to come in but I do offer prayers for Ted to make a speedy recovery.

My roommate's father had a stroke and we were told it was a big bleed deep in the brain and could not be operated on. They induced a medical coma and after some weeks said he was no longer breathing on his own and would be a vegetable if he ever woke. His wife agreed to turn let them turn off the machines helping keep him alive. His family and friends and church were praying for him and I also used Neville Goddard's "New Thinking" techniques. I had imagined vividly he woke and was asking for his favorite "fried fish" and I also imagined on another occasion his son telling me he was going him, etc. He had a miraculous change in a few days just before they were going to pull the plug. He had a miraculous change and started to squeeze family's hands and wiggle his foot when asked and then his wife told the doctors do everything to keep him alive. After they lowered the medicines keep him sedated he was able to wake and open his eyes. Then they were able to put a stent in his head to relieve liquid but surprisingly it was mostly clear. They were slow to start any therapy and moved him out of ICU for neuro patients to some other part of the hospital for another month. Without so many strong sedatives he was slowly coming back but got tired easily. After just over two months he went to a special intensive three-week therapy - part of Vanderbilt Hospital. Around the three month mark his son told me he was going home. His memory was off on some things and he is learning to walk again. His wife started him in water therapy where they do things like walk on treadmills in the water. I heard the other day he walked upstairs on his own. I do believe in the power of prayers and visualization but I definitely felt the doctors lowered the sedative medications allowed him to wake from the coma and along with various therapy and rest helped his brain heal.

Ahhh! Just read about Ted! Soooooo sorrryyyy!

I myself went to the hospital by careflight June 30 about midnight. I had a long term duodenal ulcer that had gotten worse from working nights (stress) and working 80 miles from home (stress). I lost 5 pints of blood and went to ICU also. I learned about orgone and orgonites since being back out and was gifted a small pocket one and am feeling better than I have felt for months ( the ulcer was plaguing me for year as soon as I started working nights).

I got interested in orgonites and ordered some craft materials to make my own. As soon as I can I will send one off. I also have my hospital bill and as soon as I can get back to work (in a day job) I will help with Ted.

Dear Lili from Nashville, Tn,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to write about your experience with your roommate's father who had a stroke. It is very inspiring. I sent this to Ted's caring sister Nok today and I do think she will share it with Ted's mother, uncles and wife.

Thanks again,

I have used Ted's remedies for years and they have turned my life around. I wish him well and hope that my gratitude (and I am sure others) will give him the strength to recover.

I came to Bangkok to visit my Son, Brian. For the first 3 days, my Son kept telling me I needed to see Ted. I had been having all kinds of problems. On the 4th day, I did see him and wished I had gone on the first day I was there. I believe that Ted saved my life. It was with such simple solutions compared to our ridiculous government/pharmacy/doctor controlled health system in the USA. I sit here feeling like I owe him so much and yet I feel so helpless. I pray that Ted gets well and has a long happy life that he so deserves. I would love to contribute to his medical bills.
