An AIDS debriefing
by Michael Ellner
By 1985, I was certain that the only explanation for how an HIV diagnosis could lead so often and so quickly to AIDS and death
must be the intensely negative emotional states that HIV positive people automatically regressed into when they received their
diagnosis. I could see that on top of various and considerable previous health risks, the feelings of helplessness, hopelessness,
isolation, terror, anger, guilt and shame were destroying any hope of recovery and limiting their ability to make truly informed
I could see that when some one got an AIDS diagnosis, they automatically joined the walking dead.
Because of my training in the power of suggestion, I understood that every communication about “HIV/AIDS” contained
embedded programming: “Gay” - get sick and die; “doctor/researcher” - accept scanty evidence and prescribe
toxic, immuno-suppressive drugs; “gay AIDS activist” - insure that the public believes that everyone is at risk;
“AIDS organization”- silence anyone who questions the insanity. And if you’re not in any of these groups
your embedded message was to fear sex and act like you cared.
I developed idea of the “The AIDS Zone” in 1983 to expose the unrecognized mass self-hypnosis and hysteria that
surrounded “AIDS”. I wanted to warn people who received an “AIDS” diagnosis about the deleterious
effects of the social self-hypnosis and hysteria that came with being viewed as an “AIDS case.”
Through 1985, I watched with horror as the press sensationalized the HIV/AIDS myth and gave credibility to much lackluster
science on which it was based. It was like an Orwellian nightmare, everyone simply ignored the obvious contradictions in the
official explanation of what was going down.
I invented HIV Debriefing in 1985, in response to the introduction of wide spread “HIV” testing. My goal was to
help people who had been diagnosed as “infected” to recognize and escape from the unhealthy emotional states and
the embedded programming to get-sick-and-die that came as a corollary to testing positive and/or being diagnosed as having
Clearly, reason and science had been replaced by hysteria and emotions. Keep in mind that testing positive on an antibody
test was not and is not proof of infection, and testing positive for exposure is far different than having an active viral
infection. I tried to bring this to the attention of every one I talked to about HIV and AIDS. Imagine my shock, when no
one wanted to even talk about it, let alone think about it. It was then I realized that as a society we had become socially
hypnotized to believe what we were told about “HIV/AIDS”. We were all STUCK in the “AIDS Zone”!
Sixteen years have passed and the intense social marketing that breathed life into the “HIV/AIDS” myth in the
1980’s is still going strong. I am still convinced that getting stuck in the AIDS Zone remains the most dangerous and
under-rated risk for developing AIDS indicator diseases that people in the social health risk groups face. I also believe
that it is impossible to reach and educate the public as long as we fail to grasp that they are also stuck in the AIDS Zone.
The HIV Debriefing script at the end of this paper is designed to help you liberate yourself from the AIDS Zone. It is important
to realize that you might have to debrief yourself on a regular basis as the AIDS establishment is always working to re-hypnotize
you and send you back into the Zone.
So before considering what kinds of help you need, it is important to calmly evaluate your health outside of the Zone. Because,
the tests for both “HIV antibodies” and the “HI-Virus” are simply not scientifically valid and testing
antibody positive is far different than actually having a viral infection. It is important not to get sucked into believing
that you have been infected and given a death sentence by a virus -- you have been infected by a social hex.
I want to remind you that all positive results for “HIV” are false positives in lieu of viral isolation. At most,
a positive test result is, outside the Zone, a marker for possible serious health risks and not the death sentence one gets
within the Zone. As there is no scientific evidence which demonstrates HIV has been purified and properly isolated one should
not think of themselves as HIV positive. You must strive to get out of the habit of thinking of HIV as the cause of any illness.
If you have tested so called “HIV positive” it is best to consider all of the risks associated with getting a
positive result and address the risks themselves.
Could you be in the AIDS Zone? Take this simple test:
Do you believe that you are infected with HIV?
Are you always afraid of getting sick and dying?
Are you having your t-cells counted?
Are you taking any conventional anti-HIV treatments?
Are you taking any alternative anti-HIV treatments?
Are you concerned about your viral load?
Are you feeling alienated and isolated?
Do you think every symptom and minor health problem is the beginning of
If you answered yes to any of the above questions you have been unknowingly operating within the ZONE. This is dangerous because
as I pointed out, it is only in the AIDS Zone that HIV=AIDS=Death!
When choosing a healthcare provider (if one is necessary) it is critical to insure that the practitioner you are considering
working with is not stuck in the Zone. I recommend that your avoid any and all practitioners who treat “HIV infection.” Your biggest challenge is to step outside of the Zone and address your genuine health risks and any problems you are actually
experiencing. In order to help you better evaluate your prospective practitioners I offer you the Ellner Tests.
A) If you are otherwise healthy and have simply tested positive you must look the prospective practitioner in the eye and
say: I have tested “HIV positive” and I am told that I'm at risk for AIDS. Do you think it is possible for me
to live a long and healthy life? If the practitioner
says anything but yes, find another practitioner!
B) If you have one or more AIDS indicator diseases or conditions, the test
is a little different. In addition to eye contact, you must physically make contact with the doctor and say: I have been diagnosed
as having “AIDS.” Do you think it is possible for me to regain my health and live a long healthy life? If the
practitioner says anything but yes run for your life! Then calmly find another practitioner.
Before moving on to HIV Debriefing, I want to point out that in certain situations conventional medical care can be and is
lifesaving. But only in the context of treating the actual indicator diseases, i.e., the opportunistic diseases themselves.
In all other cases I believe AIDS specialists (both conventional and alternative) who are helping you wage a war against HIV
can only hurt you and ultimately shorten you life.
If you are to stay out of the Zone you must educate yourself and recognize that most of your loved ones, friends and family
are viewing you inside the AIDS Zone.
I hereby give permission for recording my “HIV” Debriefing script for your personal use. Please understand that
no one has permission to use my script for commercial purposes. I recommend that you record the following script and play
it whenever necessary.
HIV Debriefing Script © Michael Ellner 2001
Get comfortable with your environment and surroundings so that every sound, thought, beat of your heart and breath you take
will all work synergistically to help you feel more and more peaceful and calm.
Feel free to shift your position, any time you feel that you want to.
(Short pause) Good. Close your eyes and inhale and exhale deeply and let release all of the unnecessary tensions in your body.
Starting with the left side of your body -- mentally scan the toes on your left foot...now scan your foot, your ankle, calf
and shin - that's it, now scan your knee, thigh, hip, the left side of your solar plexus and you left lung, scan the left
side of your neck and face. Now scan the right side of your body. Soon there will be no unnecessary tensions left in your
body and that will feel so right. Good, we are almost ready to start.
HIV debriefing is designed to regenerate all of the energy for healing and life that you lost on the day you got your diagnosis.
Keeping that in mind...
(Short pause) I want you to allow yourself to connect with what ever comes up when you take yourself back to the time and
place yoreceived your positive result.
(Short pause) Now for the purpose of off-loading these toxic emotions, beliefs and feelings, let yourself feel them -
be with all of your fears, doubts, anger and confusion so you can detox them. Make a fist with your right hand, release the
fist and inhale and exhale deeply. Now vigorously shake those feelings right out of your system -- that’s it, shake
Now gently open and close your eyes.
Good. Now, I want you to remember how good you felt during the best moments of your life - I want you to remember the times
you felt enthusiastic and optimistic about your future. I want you to remember the times you felt confident, secure, loved,
and just happy to be alive
(Short pause). I want you to picture yourself in your mind as follows: You are having a great hair day; you’re at your
ideal weight; your skin is glowing with health, your eyes are sparkling with confidence and there is a big smile on your face
-because you have made peace with testing positive and feel centered and balanced.
Excellent - now enjoy those feelings as you make a fist with your left hand and release it. Now inhale and exhale deeply and
gently open and close your eyes. (Short pause) ...Okay, now I want you to count to ten and at the count of ten I want you
to make a fist with both hands at the same time. (Long pause) You can actually start to feel yourself feel better, as you
let yourself drift into the following imagery
(Short pause) Imagine that it is 20 years from today and you can see yourself clearly: You look and feel great...It is
obvious that you have a happy heart, a peaceful mind and a playful spirit - It is plain to see that Life is on your side!
Enjoy the feelings and at the count of 3, in the privacy of your mind -I want you to quietly shout: “I am at peace with
testing positive,” so that it is vibrating in every cell in your brain.
Wonderful! Now before, you bring yourself back to every day time and space -- take another few moments to process today’s
I want you to notice that a shift has occurred deep inside you. That’s right. Also, before bringing yourself back to
every day time and space,
I want to remind you that while you were in the ZONE the word “positive” took on a whole different meaning to
you. I also want you to know that by the time you open your eyes at the end of today’s debriefing, your subconscious
mind will have happily reestablished all of the affirmative, optimistic, enthusiastic, constructive and favorable associations
you used to have with the word Positive and once again the word Positive will produce uplifting, nourishing and yes, Positive
associations and identifications for you.
This debriefing took all the negatives out of testing positive and you can feel the difference.
Now, count to ten and bring yourself back to everyday time and space -1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 9 and a half, before opening
your eyes be sure to remind yourself that you deserve to live and be healthy - be sure that you are feeling hopeful and peaceful.
(Long pause) That’s right, 10 - open your eyes and notice how much better you are feeling................ Now, that
you are out of the AIDS Zone.
Congratulations - you have successfully Debriefed yourself!
Take care of yourself - you deserve to live!
How to choose a doctor
by Michael Ellner
Since 1982 tens of thousands of people have come to HEAL meetings in New York City to get an alternative view and approach
to health and healing. HEAL provided the necessary resources to help them evaluate their actual health risks, and access alternative
healthcare providers if they decided to use an alternative approach.
The ‘AIDS Zone’ is a mass trance that creates an imaginary hyper-desperation and helplessness in all who unknowingly
slip into it. When participating and making choices within the Zone it is itself, in my opinion, the most dangerous and under-rated
risk for developing AIDS-indicator diseases. For most people, primarily people who have tested ‘positive’, whenever
discussing or even thinking about HIV or AIDS they do so unaware of their trance logic. The most important thing HEAL offers
people is a way out of the trance; a way out of the Zone.
Could you be in the AIDS Zone? Take this simple test:
• Are you always afraid of getting sick and dying?
• Are you taking T-cell counts?
• Are you taking any conventional anti-HIV treatments?
• Are you taking any alternative anti-HIV treatments?
• Are you concerned about your viral load?
• Do you think every symptom and minor health problem is the beginning of the end?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions you are unknowingly operating with the Zone. This is dangerous because desperate
people always make desperate choices.
Unfortunately, escaping from the AIDS Zone is not enough. When choosing a healthcare provider one is wise to ensure that the
practitioner you are considering is not him/herself stuck in the AIDS Zone. In the late eighties, a new breed of alternative
and holistic practitioners began offering their services within the western allopathic context of treating ‘HIV disease’.
When HEAL talks about taking an alternative or holistic approach to maintaining or rebuilding health we are talking about
practitioners who design a personalized protocol based on their patients’ or clients’ individual needs. This approach
has been disregarded by these ‘new’ practitioners who instead treat ‘HIV infection’. We recommend
that people replace these practitioners with someone who practices classical alternative (or holistic) medicine, someone who
views them as people with health problems and imbalances, rather than people with HIV or AIDS. Although many of these new
‘alternative HIV’ practitioners are well intentioned, they are best avoided and HEAL advises people to avoid any
and all practitioners who treat "HIV infection." The task is to address genuine health risks and any problems people are actually
We also recommend that people with or at risk for AIDS indicator diseases be aware of the special health risks that come with
being viewed as being infected with HIV, which include: intense chronic fear and social isolation, relentless programming
to get sick and die, and the fact that in far too many cases every problem they have will be blamed on HIV.
So before considering what kind of help you need it is important to calmly evaluate your health outside of the Zone. Because
the tests for both HIV antibodies and the HI-Virus are simply not scientifically valid 1 , if you haven’t taken an HIV
test – don't!
If you have already tested so-called ‘HIV positive’ it is best to consider all the risks associated with getting
a false positive result and address the risks themselves. HEAL considers all positive results to be false positives in lieu
of viral isolation. At most a positive result is, outside the Zone, a marker for possible serious health risks, and not the
death sentence one gets within the Zone. As there is no specific evidence which demonstrates HIV has been properly isolated
one may not think of oneself as HIV positive.
In order to help people better evaluate their prospective practitioner I offer you the Ellner test:
A. If you are otherwise healthy and have simply tested positive you must look the prospective practitioner in the eye and
say: I am ‘HIV positive’ and am told that I’m at risk for AIDS. Do you think it is possible for me to live
a long and healthy life? If the practitioner says anything but yes, find another practitioner!
B. If you have one or more AIDS indicator diseases or conditions, the test is a little different. In addition to eye contact,
you must physically make contact with the doctor and say: I have ‘AIDS’. Do you think it is possible for me to
regain my health and live a long healthy life? If the practitioner says anything but yes run for your life! Then calmly find
In certain situations conventional medical care can be and is lifesaving. But, to do with ‘AIDS’, only in the
context of actual diseases, i.e. the ‘opportunistic’ diseases themselves. In all other cases I believe AIDS specialists
(both conventional and alternative) who are helping you wage a war against HIV can only hurt you and ultimately shorten your
Remember, educate yourself and then question, challenge and fire any and all healthcare providers who want to treat you inside
the AIDS Zone.
The nature of disease
This treatment page doesn't have any treatments for HIV+ because there is no evidence that it is a disease. The HIV test seems
to be a genetic screening device to identify the blood of gays, dirty needle users, and Africans.
Whether gays need treatment is a question with a long history. So far, there doesn't seem to be a drug that controls how
the iris opens when the eye spots an attractive person.
Yes, IV drug users should use clean needles. Would they be more law abiding citizens as alcoholics? So far, the need for recreational
drugs seems to be built into all of us.
Is Africa a mess? Wars of liberation to break up the artificial nations created by Africa's conquerers rage on creating hunger
and disease. So far, there is no uprising of the world's political and religious leaders to stop harmful meddling.
People who are HIV+ convert to AIDS at a annual rate of about 2%. That is, they get sick and have low T cells. Whether raising
T cells is of benefit is unclear. AZT raises them for a short time, but no one claims this cures AIDS. Perhaps in the future, genetic engineering
coild help the body manufacture T cells. Perhaps working to rebuild the immune system can enable the body to work around the
lack of T cells. If only we knew what the immune system really is.
It does seem clear that feeding the starving usually works.
It's also clear that there is a certain human empathy lacking in relations towards the three groups in question.
How did we get in this strange situation where cell killing drugs are the treatment of choice for people in weakened health?
It's kind of like the one hundred years period when bleeding sick people to death was the bomb. Benjamin Rush, signer of the
Declaration of Independence and "Father of American Medicine" gained praise for devising more scientific ways than the leeches
Funny, this obsession with blood. Isn't there more to us than that?
At the rise of radio and illustrated magazines, the advertising industry came up with a story device to sell products. Someone
would state a need and the sponsor would claim his product would satisfy that need. It worked especially well for patent medicines.
Mouth smell was defined as Halitosis and mouth wash was the cure. Drug companies creating and defining a disease is not new.
Today most diseases are defined by the drugs available to treat them.
Ulcers had been defined as over production of stomach acid and antacids were prescribed as treatment. When a Canadian scientist
pointed out that ulcers were caused by a virus and that a short treatment of antibiotics would kill the virus, the drug manufacturers
defined heartburn as a horrible disease caused by overproduction of stomach acid to sell the same old medicines Over The Counter.
The problem of heartburn hasn't gone away and the fine print notes that reduction of stomach acid doesn't cure heartburn.
A condition doesn't gain the status of disease until a drug company has something to sell. "Weak women whining" were redefined
as victims of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, "bad boys misbehaving" became targets for ATD drugs, "shy people shaking" were promoted
to phobic status - all because there is a drug to sell.
Currently there are drugs to be sold for a condition involving blood cells.
When AIDS was created, people were dying fast. PCP pneumonia and KS were the two AIDS defining diseases. Now we know that
PCP can be treated as effectively as other pneumonias and people aren't dying. The gay community put out the word on inhaled
nitrates and most forms of KS became as rare as they had been in the past. Education about needles and drug potency doesn't
cure drug addiction, but it does save lives.
That was then. This is now.
You've heard the phrase: HIV Disease. This was created by Congress one dark and stormy night when Ryan White AIDS funding
was up for renewal. Representatives of small states complained that such big states as New York, California and Florida were
getting all the money because all the AIDS cases were there. Since there are more small states than large, a compromise was
reached in which HIV+ statistics would be counted as eligible for money. AIDS became HIV/AIDS and money meant for treatment
was put to use to promote the term: HIV Disease.
But having HIV antibodies in your blood is not a diagnosis of health. HIV+ is not a disease. Even if you have an “AIDS
indicator” condition, you can treat that condition by itself, just as you would if you had not tested positive.
Meanwhile, you're alone. They are messing with your body, mind and spirit. You may have been given a "drug vacation" for your
body. HEAL urges you to take a mind and spirit vacation. Face it: We're not about to solve the T cell dilemma. Let's give
it a rest.
Living in society involves compromises. Your family and friends require that you not discuss certain things with them. Remember
the teacher who got in trouble for admitting to some students that they might be right in their doubts about Santa Claus?
You are within your rights to withdraw from the AIDS Zone, to resume thinking about yourself as a human, to request that those
around you let you make your own decisions about Santa Claus, Benjamin Rush and Robert Gallo.
Or to decide to do nothing.
don't help people'
by Steve Connor
The Independent of London UK
For years, the drugs industry has grown fat on a myth - the false belief that all drugs will work on just about everybody.
That has essentially been the rationale for a culture that has encouraged doctors to prescribe first and ask questions
Yet it has been an open secret within the drugs industry that most drugs do not work for most patients, a secret that
has now been publicly aired for the first time by Allen Roses, the head of genetics at GlaxoSmithKline, Britain's biggest
In the past, drug companies have developed drugs aimed at the widest possible population. That was the most profitable
strategy but one that ignored a basic fact in biology - people are different.
To emphasize the point, Dr Roses likes to quote Sir William Osler, a Canadian physician who in 1892 remarked: "If
it were not for the great variability among individuals, medicine might as well be a science and not an art."
Bringing a new drug to market is an expensive business costing tens of millions of pounds. It takes place in a culture
of maximum possible sales for maximum possible profit - a culture that does not like to broadcast the fact that most drugs
don't work for most people.
Drug testing in patients involves three phases of increasingly complex clinical trials that must be successfully completed
before the drug is approved by regulatory authorities such as the mighty US Food and Drug Administration.
But even when a drug has been approved in terms of safety and "efficacy" - whether it does what the label says
it should do - few people realize just how poorly they perform in real life.
Dr Roses cited a study published three years ago by Brian Spear, a senior scientist at Abbott Laboratories, a medical
diagnostics company in Chicago, on the efficacy rates of a range of different drugs.
It found that drugs vary enormously in terms of how well they work, with efficacy rates varying from as low as 25 per
cent for cancer drugs to 80 per cent for painkillers.
For many drugs, however, the efficacy rates hover around 50 per cent or lower, meaning that, for most people, these drugs
just don't work. As Dr Roses puts it: "The vast majority of drugs - more than 90 per cent - only work in 30 or 50 per
cent of the people."
