       Recent advances in quantum physics confirm what I have observed clinically for many years: that the optimal diet for a particular individual depends in large part on his or her Social Security number. I have now successfully developed 4 different diets for the 4 major numerological groups. To determine which group you are in, divide your Social Security number by four. If it divides evenly, then you are in Group 1. If the remainder is 1, 2, or 3, then you are in Group 2, 3, or 4, respectively.

      Skeptics might find it difficult to believe that a 9-digit number issued by the government after a person is born could in any way influence their body chemistry. However, the immune system, gastrointestinal tract, and other organs do not mature until around 3 years of age, long after the Social Security number has been issued and had a chance to influence patterns of growth and development. Numerological factors are intimately involved in the expression of cell-surface-recognition markers, neuroendocrine wiring, excitosecretory consonance, intracellular and cell-to-cell communications systems, psychoimmunologic counterpulse pathways, and powerful subtle energies.

      What I have discovered is as follows: Groups 2 and 3 are biochemically designed to eat meat, because 2 and 3 are prime numbers. Groups 1 and 4, on the other hand, do better if they are vegetarians. Groups 1 and 2 should avoid all refined sugar. Groups 3 and 4 should not only avoid all refined sugar, they should also eat small, frequent meals (because 3 and 4 are larger than 1 and 2). Groups 1 and 3 should avoid wheat and dairy products for 3 weeks and then reintroduce each food individually. Groups 2 and 4 should eliminate wheat, dairy products, corn, and citrus for 3 weeks and then reintroduce each food individually. Group 1 should eat legumes on Mon, Wed, Fri; Group 2 on Tue, Thu, Sat; Group 3 on Wed, Fri, Sun; and Group 4 on Thu, Sat, Mon. The rest of the dietary recommendations have been published elsewhere.

      Case 1: This 37-year-old woman had a history of fatigue and premenstrual syndrome. Being in Group 1, she was advised to avoid refined sugar, wheat, and dairy products. After she improved, reintroduction of dairy products reproduced her symptoms, so they were permanently discontinued. She was also placed on an exercise program and was supplemented with chromium, magnesium, vitamin B6, and vitamin E. She has been feeling better since she began the Social Security Diet.

      Case 2: This 26-year-old female vegetarian presented with iron-deficiency anemia. Because she was in Group 2, she was advised to begin eating liberal amounts of meat. Her anemia has improved since she began eating the right diet for her Social Security number.

      Case 3: This 89-year-old meat-eating male came to the office for a well-person evaluation. He was in Group 3, which indicated he should become a vegetarian. He was urged to discontinue meat, but he refused and did not return for his follow-up visit. It is presumed that he passed away, as a result of noncompliance with the Social Security Diet.

      Case 4: This 34-year-old female in Group 4 had a long history of migraines and irritable bowel syndrome, which turned out to be due to wheat. Her successful outcome is attributed to the fact that the Group 4 diet requires patients to eliminate and rechallenge wheat.

      I am now developing a line of nutritional supplements that emphasizes the unique biochemical differences of the 4 Social Security groups. Lines of cosmetics, shoes, and furniture are in the planning stages. Long live the Social Security system!
