    The HCMA has been advised that the church of Scientology has a system to become part of thier religion. I have looked over this information and I am extremely concerned that this could be very dangerous to the HCM community. The process begins like this:

    3 STEPS TO CLEAR THINKING

    1. On the Purification Program, a person runs for a period each day to get the blood circulating faster and the system warmed up.

    2. Running is followed by sweating out the drug residuals in a sauna. Profuse sweating helps purify the system of toxic substances.

    3. Regular nutrition and supplemental nutrition in the form of vitamins and minerals is an important part of this program.
    ********************************
    This regimen is highly troubling to the HCM population. I have contacted the headquarters and asked to speak to a medical person within the organization. I have no idea if they will call back or not. In the mean time I would have to say that no person with HCM should use this system as it could be dangerous to your health.

    If you are interested in this particular religion I would suggest you met with an HCM expert to help guide you through the aspects of the religion that have to do with your physical health.

    Be well,
    Lisa
