3-4 organic pears, cored and sliced

1 cup organic cranberries, fresh or frozen

1/4 cup + 1/2 cup raw unfiltered honey, divided

3/4 cup organic whole barley flour (or buckwheat or brown rice flour for gluten-free)

1/2 cup sliced or chopped almonds

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/3 cup butter
In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup honey, 2 tbsp. flour, and cinnamon. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a buttered 9×13 glass baking pan, place apple slices evenly. Spread honey mix over apples. Place pear slices evenly over top. Scatter cranberries over all.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine remaining flour, salt, 1/2 cup honey, and almonds. Cut butter into small pieces and blend well into this mixture. Spread evenly over fruit in baking pan. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes, or until topping is lightly browned and fruit is bubbly.

Have You Been To Multiple Doctors, With The Same Response…”There Is NO Cure”? Visit Dr. Thropay & Experience REAL Answers!

About five years ago a rash developed on my right hand, and began to grow. I went to see my medical doctor, who gave me a medication for fungus. This did not help, so a year later when cracks had developed in my hand, I went to a second doctor. He said it was psoriasis, and gave me a prescription ointment for my hand. That also did not help. About another year later, since my hand was much worse, I tried a third doctor. He diagnosed it as psoriasis, and told me there was no cure. At that point I gave up, thinking for sure there must be no cure. By this time my hand was constantly painful, cracking, peeling, and blistering. The skin was dry and rough. Even the hair follicles were irritated. Because my job involves working mostly with my hands, this was a major problem to deal with.

A few months ago I went to Dr. Thropay for another problem, and after several treatments I decided to mention my hand to him.  He checked me with his nutritional testing and found that there were parasites in my hand.  After we got those cleared out, he found next that I also was reacting to chlorine.  I stopped swimming and drinking chlorinated water, and took the recommended supplements.

Just 2 months after the first testing, my hand has healed to where it looks almost entirely like my other hand.  There is no more peeling or blistering.  I have no pain when I am using it at work, and that is a big plus.  I look forward to being able to swim again in the future….

Don’t Let Migraines Keep You Down Any Longer

Most of my life I have battled with migraines, panic attacks, and nervousness, like many other family members before me. From 1994 2005 I was taking a low dose of Xanax for panic attacks and sleeping. I was also taking Zantac for heartburn and Imatrix for migraines. The migraines were unbearable. I would stay in a dark room for days… …My mother and sister insisted that I give you a try. When I came to you in January 2009, I hadn’t been sleeping more than 1-2 hours per night, for 6 weeks. I was afraid to go to sleep because when I closed my eyes I could see strange things. I had lost a lot of weight, being afraid to eat because I thought something I was eating must be causing my problems. Having so many anxiety phobias, as well as sinus infections, rashes, and headaches, I felt like I was being poisoned. I was so weak I could hardly move from room to room. I didn’t want to listen to anything negative or even to visit with people. I couldn’t go grocery shopping, because the lights really bothered me. I just wanted to sit and cry. I was unable to work at the job I loved. At the point of first visiting your clinic, I really did not think that what you were doing could help me. I was wrong! Within 3 weeks I was sleeping through the night (and have been getting 6-10 hours per night for over a year now.) My many phobias of driving, flying, eating, shopping, etc. are TOTALLY gone!!! I am calm inside and out. I’ve been back at my job for nearly a year. My friend said she can hear the song in my voice again! I’ll admit that the first 3-5 months on your program were like a roller-coaster for me. One day I felt great, the next I thought I would never be well. But here I am over a year later, having faithfully followed your customized plan for me, and I feel better than I have in many years – maybe most of my life!
