The big problem with Hubbard's Purif oil theory is this - the body digests the oil.There is NO mechanism in the human body that takes clean oil to the fat cells where it is substituted for the tainted fat, which is then transported back to the liver, colon, sweat glands, kidneys, etc. for disposal. No such mechanism exists. So, it doesn't really matter what oil you use, as long as it is not petroleum based (motor oil) your body will digest it.
Sorry, but Hubbard's theory is just that - a theory.
Now for the next big plot hole: Most drugs are water soluble. Meaning they do not end up stored in the fat cells. They are rapidly disposed of by the liver, kidneys etc. But! You say: What about non-water soluble chemicals?
I would wager they are poisonous to the body - case in point. It is well known that birds ate seeds etc that contained DDT. They didn't die. Well, not right away. The birds stored the tainted fats until winter when food was scarce, at which time they began to metabolize the stored fat - and then the DDT killed them.
So you better hope you didn't eat any wild birds exposed to DDT (Joke - it was banned ages ago) But seriously if you are so damn worried about tainted fat in your body, why not consider liposuction? They suck the fat out of you - no sweat. ;p
I can easily tell you where the gains come from in the purif - the exercising before going in the sauna. The mega doses of vites - can be harmful as the body tries to rid itself of them. But they ( in the early low doses ) could also be beneficial if one has never taken any.
The niacin running out radiation, sun burns etc. has never been proven. It may have resembled a sunburn, say the straps of a bathing suit, but was that the sun damaged skin responding more to the niacin than the not as damaged skin? Or was it running something out? Who knows what, if anything, niacin does other than temporarily open the tiny blood vessels in the skin?
and the purif. She had an unusual experience on the purif.
She had several places on her body come out in red
blotches. She then remembered that as a child she was
treated for rabies, and every blotch was where she had the
treatment injected, a painful treatment which I hope has
It is well known, especially here, that Hubbard could
make up and create bullshit at the toss of a coin. However
he did create some workable ideas, even if his theories
of what was working were not always accurate.
Rabies shots have nothing to do with the sun, yet the
purif detected them and they can cause severe reactions.
