About Hmasters
Joined December 2013
And now...for a bit of background. Until I left home at age fourteen, I lived in a very small community of mostly itinerant lead and zinc miners in Cardin, Oklahoma. I graduated from Picher-Cardin High School and enlisted in the military on my 17th birthday during World War II. After spending over three years in the Air Force, I used my G.I. Bill to go to Oklahoma University for pre-med study and finished Medical School there seven years later.

I enjoyed a successful solo Medical Family Practice for 36 years. After closing my private practice, I served as Medical Director for an Oklahoma City Hospital for 4 years retiring at the age of 68. I feel very fortunate to have been able to do something for a living that I dearly loved and have had, what I have always considered to be, the world's greatest patients.

Those were some of the early days when a "GP" (General Practitioner) treated most illnesses, performed surgeries, delivered babies, did pediatrics, made house calls at night and on weekends, and even made nursing home calls. At that time we did not have a lot of specialists, intensive care units did not yet exist, there were no x-ray machines in offices, and emergency rooms were only staffed with nurses.

So anytime a patient went to the E.R. for an emergency, the doctor also went to the E.R., often 3-5 times per night. We treated many people with heart attacks at home with bed rest, oxygen and medication to relieve pain because monitors and more sophisticated equipment had not yet been invented. From this you can get the picture of how very closely involved we were with our patients' lives and that made it all so rewarding.

It is sometimes fun to look back at the difference in medical costs compared to our lives now. Office calls were $3.00. If I saw you in the office at night, it was $5.00 and hospital and nursing home calls were $7.50. If someone could not afford those high prices, they might mow my yard, paint my house or bring me a fresh catfish or something from their garden.

Needless to say medicine has made a lot of progress since then and it has been a real treat to be a part of it and make my own personal contributions, large or small. Had I had any idea I would be so healthy and live so long I would not have retired so soon. I've done a lot of research into maintaining excellent health and truly believe that this is my contribution now.

My reason for starting this website is to share the knowledge that I have accumulated during my years in health care. It is my opinion that if we are going to be healthy as a population, we must become more knowledgeable and I realize that "if it is to be, it is up to me." My intent is to be able to help unravel some of the mystery of staying healthy. Like all areas there are some basic fundamentals that are necessary and there is often also a ton of misinformation from poorly informed, misinformed and/or intentional scammers who all want our hard earned dollars.

I am excited about communicating with a large base of people in assisting you to separate fact from hype. I spend most of my time now researching medical issues, primarily preventive medicine, and trying to sort the hype from the really helpful material and products. I want to pass what I glean from my research on to you and enable you to make the most educated choices possible about your health, the products to support your health, and the health of those around you who you know and love.

Best wishes to all of you. I know that, together, we can make 2014 the best year EVER!

Alex, welcome to WA and thank you for adding me to your group. With your previous successes and business savvy you will be able to make fabulous use of the training and the help from other members as you decide just how you want to monetize your efforts. Since we share the goal of not becoming some Dr.'s patient or some hospital's admission I would be really interested in knowing ways you have learned to avoid either. There is just enormous knowledge and talent in this community and I think you will find it very beneficial and also be a benefit to the community. Best wishes.

Hey so I read a lot on your site that just made the bon fire time a little longer and just out of curiosity maybe I did not read enough content but where do I get an ionizer. Cool site by the way I will be back to learn more.
Reply
hmasters Premium
When I talk ionizers I get a little nutsy and like a snake oil salesman. Mine has kept me out of assisted living and a wheel chair for 7 yrs. but many intelligent people think it is all a sham. There are better units now than the one I bought in Mar 2010 and paid $4300 for. There are better units with a life time warranty now for under $3000. It is a very long and convoluted story and if you wish I will give you tons of information and opinion. I don't think anyone can yet be sure of all the facts. I am in the process of trying to add a lot of factual information to my site to help people make an intelligent decision. I have reduced my medication bill from $900 per month to $10.00 so mine has paid for it self and I wouldn't sell it if I could not replace. Even my dog won't drink city water now! Let me know if you want me to bombard you with info to sort through, some for real and some from nuts.

HelenpDoyle Premium
You can't use hay. It's the wrong structure and it degrades. Straw is just the starchy debris, is hollow so the trapped air adds to the insulation and is very dry very quickly before baling. And as these are special building bales ie very tightly packed, they are very heavy!

Greetings Doc from Cyprus although I'm from UK, better known as an ex pat. I have always looked upon the medical profession as more of a devotion than a job. nice article Doc,when you started in medicine it's still the same here in Cyprus, not much has changed over the years, still pushing paper. Where in the UK, and I suspect in the USofA doctors no longer walk round with xray's, they carry tablets, how thing have changed in some developed countries. Any way thanks for the follow young man, may your efforts here fall on good soil.

Hello Harold. I have left you a comment on your site. I love your website and your articles are great! I love the one about blending. I've always been interested in alternative ways to keep healthy as I believe they are the natural healers. I'm a vegetarian too. I make most things from scratch and I have a love affair with my blender so I find your site very useful. Thank you for sharing such great information.
Reply
hmasters Premium
Thanks Melanie. From your picture I would have guessed you are not on the beaten path regarding your health or goals. The only blenders I have experience with are the Nutri-Bullet, the Vitamix and the Ninja. Have you had any great experience with others that people should know about? Hope you had a great week end.

Hi Hmasters. Thanks for your compliment. I'm a spiritual coach so have to walk the walk and talk the talk so to speak. I've been vegetarian for many years, exercise, meditate and do yoga so do look after myself.

I also cook everything from scratch which I really enjoy. Lots of my friends are raw vegans and they look and feel amazing and have the energy of five year olds lol. Have even thought about going raw vegan myself but something that require a lot of thought.

No I've never had any experience with those blenders. I'll ask my friends and see what ones they are using and I'll get back to you.

Lovely to connect with you

I do have some friends I'm going to stay with at for Christmas who always use there's but I'm not sure what type. I'll find out what one they use and let you know after Christmas Thank you Harold. Hope you have a great weekend and nice Christmas. Do you have any plans for Christmas?

I am staying home for Christmas. I have lived alone since 1998 except for two little Bischons who have been my buddies 24/7/365. One had a severe convulsion 3 weeks ago which forced us to put him to sleep so his brother and I are still adjusting to get beyond our sadness and missing him.
Question in regards to your work. Do you have any thoughts of providing info regarding diet, nutrition, seasoning, etc?? People are so confused and searching for info all over the place. Have a great Christmas Melanie. I left you a note on your site.

Hello Harold.

I'm so sorry to hear about your little dog. I empathise with you as I love animals and have had a similar experience with one of my cats. Thankfully the cat I have now is a bundle of energy and despite being 11 he's very well and thinks he's two. People think he's a really young cat because of his great mindset lol

It is nice that you still have the other little dog and are there to comfort each other. Animals are so intelligent and I can imagine that this has effected him as much as you especially with it being his brother I send you both my love

Thanks for asking. Yes there is such a lot of info out there it is no wonder why people are confused. I never diet. I follow the Deepak Chopra healthy eating plan. According to Chopra each vegetable and fruit has its own energy vibration just like we have. As long as you are eating one of every colour every day then you get all of the nutrition that your body needs. I also eat lots of seeds too which I sprinkle on veggy stews, soups, salads, practically on everything. I eat a little bit bit of quorn and marinate it in spices. My friends are Asian so they always make me home made curries and dahl. I believe the spices also contribute to my well-being. I never buy tins or convenience foods and always make most things from scratch. I make sure that I eat medium portions but eat often. I have about five balanced meals a day. I combine this with exercise too.

Thank you. Have a lovely Christmas and send my love to your little dog. You have each other and you will both get through this x

Ps thank you for leaving me a note on my site. That's very much appreciated

Hi Doc, I just noticed something in one of your websites that someone commented "It’s nice to know I have a doctor in my back pocket!"

Wow, talk about branding... "Your friendly back pocket Doctor"...

Can you feel it? By the way, did you by any chance mention in Hydration that we should drink half of your body weight in water?
Reply
hmasters Premium
Hey, my mind is not as young and quick as yours so I had not thought of the "friendly back pocket doctor" bit. Regarding the amount of water. I have to be careful about blanket statements because people with renal insufficiency or congestive heart failure can kill their self with that amount. I also have some concern when people are drinking unfiltered water loaded with chlorine, fluoride, birth control pills, antibiotics, pesticides, insecticides and a few hundred other foreign substances about encouraging them to drink more?? We cannot have optimum health unless well nourished and well hydrated so we all have some serious work to do in helping people become aware of the seriousness of these problems and the need for 1/2 oz./lb of body weight daily.(of good quality water)
Thanks for your note. Have a great week end.

Hi Hmaster Love your profile. Almost a home town boy. I grew up on a dairy farm south of Big Cabin. Small school so not much to do, but we played basketball. Not big enough for football. It was big when we got to go to Miami to play. It's funny about what the doctors had to charge. Our son was delivered at Joplin by Dr. Smith. At $5 a week it took a while to pay the bill. LOL When I read your profile I thought of Doc on Gunsmoke TV.You could have been that doctor. You sure are a young looking 90. I just turned 77 and I believe that when you stop getting in the floor to play with the KIDS is when you start getting old. Keep up the good work and stay young. Thank You

Wow! What a small world. I have always thought that N.E. OK must be God's part of the state with some lakes, trees and a little roll to the land. That is a good looking truck. Do you still drive some? I wanted to go into practice in Miami but the Drs. that were there were not at all inviting and would not alternate emergency call with me. That was the big city to us and when we played them in basketball or football they just cleaned our plow. I hope you enjoy WA. I have been real slow with the computer stuff but have enjoyed learning something new. I am sure glad you left me a note.

Hi Doctor< Thank you for your service to our country. I was to young for the Korean war and also had a child hood health challenge. Did you know DR. Darrough at Vinita. He was a ww2 battle field doctor. Our family gives him credit for saving my brothers life in about 1946 as he was cut up in a saw mill accident. He was also my doctor in1949. Carol was one grade ahead of his daughter in high school. I can not say thank you enough. God Bless You

Hi Harold
What a great profile, I absolutely love it! Especially the part where you say about some of your patients. (quote) 'If someone could not afford those high prices, they might mow my yard, paint my house or bring me a fresh catfish or something from their garden.' That really made me laugh out loud!
You sound like a very 'human' human being Doc; and, I take my hat off to you. I notice that you have been here at W A for almost a year now, which makes you a 'veteran'. I've been here just over two months now; which, I guess, makes me a 'seasoned novice' :-), but I'm working on it. Live long and Prosper!

Ian, thanks for your note. I was very fortunate to have 40 yrs. of work without a day I didn't enjoy. Fabulous patients and at a great time in the history of the U.S. Lot of good technology and minimal government intervention at that time. I guess that, in terms of time. I may be a veteran here but very much a novice in terms of what I am attempting here at WA. It's a great place to be able to learn from the more knowledgeable who are always so willing to help. I am looking forward to following you.

Harold, I am glad I met you glad to hear that you will provide valuable information concerning health. I have always been interested in our unorthodox eating habits, I call it unorthodox cause as we learn about what foods can harm and foods are good for us, I find that we have been eating the wrong foods. I have been reading Enter The Zone by Dr Barry Sears, PH.D, and find it very interesting that foods and how you eat (meaning time frame) they have an impact on your health. Anyhow, thank you to the following and all the best to you.

Thanks for you note. Isn't it strange that eating what our body really needs is not "out of the mainstream"? I am glad you are interested and wish you the best.

Wow, Harold! I feel honored to have read your profile here on WA!
I myself was a medical transcriptionist for many years, until those computer geeks invented "voice recognition software" - something I thought would never be able to be done.

I admire your expertise. The kind of medicine you've practiced in the past will sadly be practically non-existent in the future, and I daresay many young medical students today could greatly benefit from any advice you give!

I wish you much success, and will be looking forward to perusing your websites!

I did love the job of transcriptionist. It was like having the doctor tell you what and who he saw, their diagnoses, what he was going to do, all about the patient's progress, procedures and results right in your ear every day. Like free medical school!

Plus, I learned to type at about 110 wpm - which really comes in handy now.

I would love to stay in touch with you, also!

Much success to all of us. I firmly believe that WA is the right place to learn how to achieve it. No question goes unanswered, from folks who have blazed this trail before us, which is invaluable. Especially to people who remember times BEFORE the internet....or cell phones....or cable tv......or......

A warm "hello" to you, Dr. Harold Masters, and what a delight it was to read your short bio here just now! I stumbled on a comment you made and came over to read about you; what a life of service you've led, reminding me so much of my grandfather, born in 1898 and making house calls as a GP for many, many years in Santa Paula, California. I'm quite excited to bookmark and read everything you've written here in WA and on your websites, as my own life/health journey has been deeply immersed in the medical field. My beautiful daughter is now an outstanding nurse as well, keeping me informed about her patients and the daily ins and outs of hospital life. Thank you for all you've given of your time, talents, skills, and big heart to the world in general and now to the WA community in particular =] Looking forward to getting to know you!
Blessings always, Gwynn

Gwynn, I have no idea how I missed your nice note. You write like a professional and it is easy to get lost in what you are writing. That is a skill I am finding hard to develop. Your note brings back a lot of memories of leaving an office at 7:00 or so in the eve. and making 3 or 4 house calls on the way home. I hope you are doing better with your health issues. You sound very happy and at peace. I am looking forward to staying in touch.

Hello Harold
You remind me of our revered family doctor who lived to a very ripe old age; met him when I was around 12 years of age and he always looked the same. No one suspected he had bowl cancer which he fought back from over a 20 year period, riding bikes, mountain hiking etc. We lived in a town which lost its livelihood (mining) but he led the way forward into tourism with his love of the environment and photographing it. His was a no-nonsense approach to health, and all the women swore they had the best pregnancies ever (me too) under his guidance. He kept working way past retiring age just to help the locals, as we would otherwise have had to travel for treatment. Sometimes he meted out some unpopular advice, but sooner or later, it was realized it was the advice that was needed. He was truly OUR doctor (the community's). Yes, we all came to love him.
I must get into my lessons or I will be no good to anyone, and I look forward to learning from all your experience on your website.
I don't really have anything to offer as yet, but am inspired by everyone here to give it my best shot.

The WA group continues to amaze me - I am so glad I am here - the money making aspect is a bonus, but the community feel and learning opportunities are priceless. This is the new way forward, for the whole world (at least my feeling....) I'm just loving being here, and I can't wait for more of my family to get involved. We have our genetic and asbestos related health battles too so will be following your preventative teachings with keen interest. I know some people who have won out over asbestos exposure due to revamping their diet, and it was thought to be impossible, so there is hope after all.

Thank you Harold - that's good to know. I grew up in a small asbestos mining town - our much loved local doctor was also unaware of the risks the families faced in the town which was in a different location to the mine. However, that is another long story, so to cut it short, as there are many many people who would benefit if it could be shown that what you eat DOES matter to warding off the effects of exposure to harmful substances in our increasingly toxic environment, I am very interested in preventative medicine and nutrition for natural healing. One family member who was diagnosed with Mesothelioma and advised she had better get her affairs in order, has beaten it and is totally cancer free, 8 years later, by refusing to give in and turning to nutrition after she couldn't have any more chemo, still had 3 half size tumours left. After a few months of juicing and diet/lifestyle repair, they are all gone.

Thanks for your note Debbie.

Hello Harold, Thank you for the follow and its my pleasure to meet you. You know its funny that my parents were just telling myself and my sisters how different things are today as far as Doctors go. They new their patients name without looking at a chart. They would make house calls. And if they didn't have the money they would let them pay when they could. I think we are advanced as far as medicine goes but when it comes to the Dr. and patient relationship goes i think we went backwards. Just my opinion Dr. Best wishes too you:)

Great bio. Am big believer in mind/body connection and the link between how we think and believe and how that interacts with our health . Also, what goes into the mouth is going to have so much of an impact on our health. Raw food is so much better for us, but not as well distributed in the stores. Anymore, I pretty much shop at the perimeter of the grocery store where the fruits and veggies are and get a few more things elsewhere. If it is in a box or a bag, it probably tastes great, but will be of dubious value nutritionally...great to have you here and I look forward to your website so I can learn from your experience. Cheers!

I couldn't agree with you more. I believe in the use of supplements where really needed but I don't think they are nearly as effective as when presented to the body in foods. That is where our bodies for generations has learned to break down and extract what it wants and needs. I really enjoyed your note above. I think you have it all figured out very accurately.

I am technically challenged too! I started reading your website (Achieving Optimum Health) today and found it absolutely fascinating and immensely motivating. It is rare to find someone as knowledgeable as you give explanations just to help people without trying to promote things simply for financial gain. You are absolutely right. I tend to be quite cynical about lots of medical research because I know that it was sponsored by a pharmaceutical company with vested interests.

I'll read some more tomorrow and look forward to the further posts you have promised.

Interesting note Glenda. When I started in medicine 58 yrs. ago I charged $3 for office calls, there were no ICUs, no cat scans or MRIs, no laboratory work except expensive special testing , x ray machines were only in hospitals and the only way we had of making a diagnosis was with a careful history of the illness and a careful physical examination. It's actually very surprising how much you can still learn about an illness that way. I am so thankful to have had so many yrs. in practice where we actually got to sit down and spend time with our patients. Have a great week end and thanks for your note.

There has been tremendous progress in technology and at the same time a loss of a lot on the personal level. As a patient I have had 3 "complete physicals" without ever taking my clothes off. It is so important now that we all learn what we need to know about getting and staying healthy and use our physicians to treat our illnesses and injuries and need for repairs.

Edie, I agree with you that the information you shared with me might very well be meaningful to others of our WA family. There are thousands who are in all various stages of our own struggles and difficulties and each of us is genuinely interested in each others financial, physical and emotional welfare. Faith is much like the wind in that we have not seen it but have felt and seen the results of it. We are each marching to the beat of our own drummer and yet we share a lot in common. Thank you for sharing with me.

Sara, if we are fortunate enough to live a long time we will have done many things in a way that could have been done in better ways. We also have had the privilege of watching thousands of others and see how their actions or lack of them turned out. It would seem a shame not to try in some way to share what of this information with anyone who can benefit from it. Hopefully none of our young people have to make every mistake personally to learn from others experiences.
Thanks Sara.

Edie, I admire and respect your faith, strength, commitment and determination. I am sure you believe that God would never give you more to deal with than you could handle and that sometimes you just wish he did not have so much trust in you. I wish you and your husband the very best.

Harold,
For some odd reason the system never notified me of this reply.
I take things as they come, try to focus the good, and remember the saying "Every thing that comes, comes to pass."
I have had some experiences that were very very definite proof that "God is our refuge and strength A very present help in time of trouble." Like when my room mate and I were out of work and no jobs were available. We each got a check in the mail for over time that we had not been paid for. It was the same amount as a full 2 weeks pay. OH then jobs miraculously opened for us.
Or the Sunday near Christmas a few years back, when my husband, who was having trouble finding a job after his nerve problems, told me how bad our situation was. Then my sister called and begged me to go to Oklahoma to take care her. When I finally got to church, the service was exactly what I needed. I was annointed for my sister. One lady praying near me prayed "God ,please meet every need that is represented here." That afternoon I found out that Mom, also in Oklahoma, was in need of food.
Monday, that week, my husband got called for a job interview, my sister's dr. changed her medication and she started improving. My brother was able to help Mom. So the following Sunday I was able to tell the church people that God did "meet every need represented" just like the lady had prayed.
A few weeks later, my husband needed to change to a different department at his job. The dept. he was in was too stressful for his nerves. He was told he would have to work that position for 6 months before he could transfer. I prayed " God, I know You did not pick us up to throw us down. You are able to work this out." He did!!! A few days later my husband got a less stressful position.
Maybe I should put this in a blog.
Edie

Thank you for your follow. I have been looking at your websites because I am extremely interested in nutrition and preventative medicine. My husband is one of 28 people in the U.K who changed his life and reversed his type two diabetes. He came off the maximum amount of metformin to nothing in ten months. I am writing a program about how he did it and how he has managed it for nearly four years.
Of course as he ages he can become diabetic again but at the moment he can walk every day so we are happy he has to take no medication.

Thanks for that great info Jenna. I love to hear reports like this. I think we have not even begun to realize the ability the body has to heal and repair if we supply it with what it needs. I am 9 yrs. beyond the average life expectancy for males in this country and was scheduled to go into assisted living in Jax, Fl. in Dec. 2008 but have had these yrs. of great quality of life. Hope you and your husband will keep in touch. I will be getting more info on my web site soon now if it is interesting to you.

Hello,
Having been a "PK", then having been an ordinary lay person,later serving different positions on church boards and then being the pastor's wife, gave me a multi-faceted perspective.
Sadly, my husband had a near nervous breakdown and has been unable to attend church for several years. I was annointed on his behalf and I am still believing God will work things out to get him back in church and in the ministry. Sometimes God works things out in His own way. Sometimes He uses medical means. Sometimes we have to make changes or something. Sometimes He helps us to endure so that we can be more patient and understanding and concerned for others.
Best wishes
Edie

Hey Harold,
I saw your website and read your personal text. Nice site and good text. You will not be surprised if I tell you that the words: "...thou shalt not judge" are well known to me. :)
If more people put that into practice, there woulld be less trouble between people. Not everybody is aware of the fact, that if he points with one finger at another, he points with four fingers at himself.
Cheers,

I sure agree with you that there is no good health long range without it. Hopefully we can work together to provide some help to those who have an interest.

You will get there Harold. You are plenty young enough to get through the learning curve, my Mom's friend got her first computer when she was '90' - yes '90'. She had never used one at all, and loves it. She spends hours on it and she says it "helps to keep her mind active". She "Googles" info for my 78 year old Mum. I must remind her to get up and exercise every now and again though.
