The purpose of this website is to expand on topics covered in the book above.
The name of this website, and also the title of my book above, may appear a bit radical at first, but its reality will slowly become evident once you start reading it. If you take a brief look at the average health of people across the world today, you will notice something quite alarming!
Till about a century ago, chronic illness (an indicator of the diseased state of the human gene set) was not a common occurrence till the age of 50 years. But if you look at averages in the world today (2015), you will see that chronic illness has started manifesting even at the age of 35 years. In some cultures that follow unhealthy lifestyles, chronic illnesses like obesity, hormonal imbalance, indigestion, gastric problems, blood impurities, allergies, asthma, sinusitis, skin problems, migraines, eye problems, thyroid problems, lung problems, diabetes, vitamin deficiency and autoimmune disorders have started manifesting at the age of 25 years itself. So from a state of good health up till 50 years of age, a century back, we can barely manage vibrant and good health till the age of 25 years nowadays.
If it took 100 years to manifest chronic illness 25 years earlier in life, could we in another 100 years have chronic illness at birth itself? If this is not alarming enough, you need to take a more realistic view of the situation, which is, the linear rate of this degradation of the human body has in fact now become exponential in the last 15 years.
If you are truly aware of the present rate at which all of our sources of food, water and environment are getting contaminated, and the way chronic illness is getting a hold of our younger populations, you will begin to see that chronic illness at birth itself will be the norm for every child within the next 20 years!
Can you figure out what are the survival rates of a baby born with the illnesses that are listed above? Can you subject a new born to the harsh medicines that we use nowadays for adults? Will a new born be able to handle the side effects of these medicines?
There are many parents today who have found bringing up a child with incurable or chronic illness to be a very trying, extended and exhausting experience. They wish the ordeal for no one else.
Would this situation not mean that in another 20 years every parent would be faced with a grim choice of whether they can really afford to have a child or not?
This scenario marks the beginning of the extinction phase of the human race, because an increasing number of parents will choose not to have any children at the time. “Human life would not be worth it” so to say. If you feel like passing this off as just a theory right now, know that your inaction, and every passing year, will only make it more real.
Responses to The Book – Become Healthy or… Extinct!
Sequoia Paul said (May 10, 2012 at 10.32 am) :
Dear Darryl, I found you through the Sun.
Thank you for your book. I read it and hope it will reach as many people as possible. It is rare to find a contemporary person promoting immortalism in such straightforward and genuine way. The chapter “Metaphysics of the Human Body” contains much knowledge that is new to me but immediately felt to be true. As a vegan of over 10 years and natural medicine student, I found your book to resonate with me 100%, all that you wrote is true. I will gladly share it with others. Your friend in Light, Sequoia
Darryl D’Souza replied (May 12, 2012 at 6:53 pm) :
Dear Sequoia, You are most welcome. Glad to meet you too. I am very happy that you resonate with what is written in my book. This is knowledge that the world needs now. Thank you for sharing the book with others too. Your friend in Light, Darryl

Thank you Darryl. Your book is a great piece of work I must say. You won’t believe, just by cutting down harmful things in my diet as given in your book, I am feeling more energetic within a week! I am filled with gratitude towards you, that you took the pain to write this treasure of your life and gave it to all of us. Regards, Richa Raghuwanshi
Darryl D’Souza replied (May 28, 2012 at 11:11 am) :
You’re most welcome Richa. It was a great task putting down my experience of the last 21 years into this book, hard work no doubt, especially when I started writing this book with my left hand in a hospital bed, 3 days after a major reconstructive surgery on my right hand that got severed at the wrist. Thank you for your feedback. God Bless, Darryl

Dear Darryl, Thanks for the awesome book you’ve written!! It has changed my outlook completely. But I had a doubt regarding black pepper treatment.. as to how many times the treatment is to be repeated in a year. Once again thanks a lot. Priyanka
Darryl D’Souza replied (January 18, 2013 at 10:53 pm) :
Hi Priyanka, Thank You After the black pepper treatment, take a break of one month. If you see it benefitting you every time you do it, you can do it upto 5 times a year. Wishing you all the best! Darryl

I have read and re-read your book “BECOME HEALTHY OR EXTINCT” and would like to let you know that it is MAGNIFICENT AND BRILLIANT to the nth level. Your insight and research into the whole array of subjects that you have covered is simply outstanding. Reading the book has completely changed my outlook towards health and the human body, making me more caring and aware towards its maintenance and upkeep.
I was deeply enlightened by many aspects of the book but these 2 had a very special impact on me, namely 1) THE 7 ENERGY BODIES and 2) THE POWER OF SUGGESTION & THE LAW OF ATTRACTION.
On the whole spending time with your book was a delightful experience, one that I will cherish throughout my life. Please do come down to Dubai and conduct a workshop here also. A lot many people will benefit from your erudition and experience. Lastly, do you have any plans for a workshop in Bombay? Please do let me know and keep me updated in your mailing list for all your future workshops.
MY PRANAM TO YOU
With Warm Regards,
Yours for HUGE success & contentment
Darryl D’Souza replied (January 29, 2013 at 11:11 pm) :
Dear Malik, Thank you so much for your wholehearted appreciation. I am so glad that my book gave you a lot of value and I’m looking forward to it bringing in a lot of positive change in your health and life as well.
I am planning a workshop in Mumbai by the 1st week of March. Will also consider doing my workshop in Dubai as and when I’m led to. I had done one in Dubai in Feb’11 I think. Yes, I will surely send you all my future workshop invites. Wishing you all the best! God Bless.
Arumuga Selvan said (February 1, 2013 at 11:59 pm) :
Dear Sir, Thank you for sending me your book. I just want to show this book to whoever is not healthy and wants to become healthy. I just want them to follow your great system. Even small machinery comes with 1 operation catalogue and I can say your book is a HUMAN BEING CATALOGUE! Thanks, Regards, Selvan
Darryl D’Souza replied (February 2, 2013 at 12:11 am) :
Dear Selvan, I appreciate your comment very much, that this book is a Human Being Catalogue.

You will be doing a good service. God Bless, Darryl

Darryl’s book is a great testament to his commitment. He does not mince words and tells it like like it is. Nice interviews on his website too. His turnaround with acupressure is something I can endorse, having seen it work first hand. Proud to call him my friend.

Thank you for your endorsement Veenu! Coming from a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, it does hold a lot of weight. Wonderful to join you too in the global wellness revolution!

I am from Bangalore. Please also include my email id when you send notification of your workshop in Bangalore.
Darryl D’Souza replied (April 2, 2013 at 1:50 pm) :

Dear Darryl, though I am a well established lawyer by profession, I’m also a teacher of Yoga and Natural Therapies for Health & Well-Being for the last 15 years. I congratulate you for writing this fantastic book on Health, Nutrition and Curing Chronic Illness. I find it to be a very comprehensive book that covers all aspects of health and that is why I ordered 2 dozen copies for my family & friends.
Thank you also, for doing your health workshop ‘Curing Chronic Illness without Medicines’ at my residence in Mumbai where all of us had a very wonderful, informative and enlightened experience. I am very keen to spread the word of your book and your work to all my circles. My best wishes to you and your work. God Bless.

Hi Darryl, I have read your e-book and re-read it a few more times! Its amazing. I am so impressed by the philosophy and its possibilities that I want to devout my life to spreading its message far and wide. The way you have explained the important things in your book is very reader friendly, and even a lay person can grasp it. I would like you to share your views on a larger platform in North India, so please schedule some workshops in Delhi, Chandigarh, Lucknow etc. I could help you with setting up a workshop in Delhi, because I want my family and friends to also adopt a healthier way of life.
Darryl D’Souza replied (April 11, 2013 at 1:57 pm) :
Dear Gayatri, I’m very glad that you understand the importance of my book and the work that needs to happen in the world through it.

Thanks Darryl, for making the effort to revive all the lost knowledge and passing it on to the world through your book!!!!! I have no words to express my feelings of gratitude with every chapter I finish reading. Seems I am interacting with some one who has understood the mysteries of the universe. As I read through, I have some doubts, so I hope I can ask you to clarify them through email.
Darryl D’Souza replied (April 12, 2013 at 9:25 pm) :

Vivek Chauhan said (May 16, 2013 at 10:17am) :
Dear Darryl, I read your article in the Life Positive magazine, and from there landed on your website, and eventually got to probably the most radical health book I’ve ever read. It’s been about 2 weeks that I downloaded the book, and it has since spread like wildfire to my contacts and their further contacts. What absolutely marvellous stuff you’ve written, with very logical and legible reasons behind whatever you claim in your book. Many, many congratulations on this gem of a book. I seek your help and guidance in treating a dear friend of mine, who is suffering from a serious ailment so I will email you about it. Hoping you will oblige. Thank You, Vivek Chauhan
Darryl D’Souza replied (May 17, 2013 at 10:28 am)
Dear Vivek, Thank you for your appreciation and wishes. Happy to know that you find a lot of value in my book. Thanks also for sharing it with everyone, since this is the way proper knowledge will spread among the people. I will take up your friend’s case when I visit Delhi in June for my workshops. Best Wishes, Darryl
Mayank Joshi said (August 16, 2013 at 02:05am) :
Dear Darryl, Your book has solved many physiological and many metaphysical mysteries for me, and the only thing left now is to walk on the road to wellness.

Hello Darryl, I must congratulate you and thank you like millions of other people that have blessed you for the commendable job that you are doing for the past few years. I got introduced to your work through a friend of mine just 3 days ago and I was overwhelmed with your work. I downloaded your book and finished reading all the 281 pages in 1 1/2 day. And have started implementing some of the approaches you have suggested in my routine since past two days.. and not really to my surprise I am seeing improvement in my stomach issues. I have already started recommending your work to almost all of my friends and acquaintances. Once again, kudos to you for helping humankind!
Darryl D’Souza replied (Dec 28, 2013 at 12:13 pm) :

Ramaswamy Thanu said (Feb 02, 2014 at 06:32am) :
Dear Darryl: Your book ” Become Healthy or Extinct” is a treasure of crystallized medical wisdom to be transmitted to all human beings interested in remaining healthy and happy. I will certainly do my best to popularize it. I am glad that your ideas and commitment have much in common with mine which have been outlined in my books particularly the one” Managerial Approach to Happiness”. Definitely you have the blessings of Lord Dhanwantari, the God of Medicine and an avatar of Lord Vishnu.
Darryl D‘Souza replied (Feb 03, 2014 at 10:15 am) :
Dear Ramaswamy, Thanks a lot for your kind words about my work. An even bigger thanks for sharing it with others! I wrote the book for the common man who is interested in curing himself of disease and within 2 years it has been read in over 30 countries… this is surely be due to the blessings of Lord Dhanwantari. Best Regards.
Piyush Kumar said (Feb 19, 2014 at 10:13am) :

Shrinivas Baheti said (June 21, 2014 at 03:17pm) :
Many congratulations for writing such a great book!!! A non medical person scientifically explaining the health benefits in such details was a rare thing for me. It was such a wonderful book that once started reading, I could not keep the book down for 3 hours. I never came across such a nice book on heath so far. I am very eager to meet you and understand few things and also willing to attend the various workshops you conduct. Although I knew many things about raw food and diet combination of food etc and so many things i was following since long. After reading the book, I got reconfirmation on what I was doing. But still so many good things which are new to me… accupressure, sun yoga and various cleansing therapies. I am going to send the book to few of my social and few business friends and would like to invite them for your workshops. I live in Mumbai. Best Regards, Shrinivas.
Darryl D’Souza replied (June 23, 2014 at 04:15 pm) :
Dear Shrinivas, Thank you for appreciating my work so much and thanks also for offering to introduce my book and workshops to your friends. I’ll be coming down to Mumbai from 11th July to 17th July, so maybe I could do my 1-day health workshop on Sunday the 13th. Looking forward to meeting you! Thank You & Best Regards, Darryl D’Souza
James Fernandes said (October 14, 2014 at 08:35pm) :
Dear Darryl, I appreciate your immense contribution towards the humanity. The ocean of truthful knowledge in your book ‘Become Healthy or Extinct’ is awesome. Though I am waiting for your workshop, I started with all cleanses including liver cleanse with remarkable results. My family has switched over to raw veges and fruits. I was diabetic with 3 tablets per day. I gradually reduced the dose & since 28.9.2014 I am without any tablet and blood glucose is normal. I am 48 yrs.
Can my daughters aged 13 yrs & 17 yrs undergo liver cleanse and what should be the proportion of Epsom salt and Olive oil? They have done Kidney Cleanse with Tea , Parasite Cleanse, Colon Clean with Psyllium husk. God Bless You. Regards, James Fernandes, Goa
Darryl D’Souza replied (October 21, 2014 at 11:08 pm) :
Dear James, It’s wonderful to know that you’ve already followed so much advice from my book and have reversed your diabetes as well. Glad to know that your family members are also supporting your healthy choices. For your daughters, the orange juice & olive oil quantity can be the same as mentioned in my book. But reduce the Epsom Salt quantity in proportion to their body weight. So if they are 50 kgs, use 50gms Epsom Salt in 800ml water. Best Regards, Darryl D’Souza
Karin Kock said (February 11, 2015 at 05:52pm) :

“Become Healthy or Extinct” should be made compulsory in all schools and colleges… Amazing book. Highly recommended.
Darryl D’Souza replied (November 06, 2015 at 09:57 am) :
Thank You Sid! Yes, I hope that some of the fundamental knowledge from this book finds its way into school texts. One of the reasons I wrote this book and also kept is free, was because I felt very sad that most people on this planet have missed understanding some basic, but very vital knowledge. God Bless!
