Kelder is an intensely private man who does not wish to reveal
more to the public than these brief details. He feels that his

a friend of mine began to look much younger, and his full gray beard began
to turn a lovely shade of brown. Upon questioning, he told me about the
fountain of youth book. Since I started doing the Five Rites, here's what's
happened to me: My insomnia and eczema have disappeared completely. My
hot flashes said good-bye (I'm fifty-three). After twenty-five years of
bifocals, I no longer need glasses. And my eyes have turned a lovely shade
of blue, like twenty-five years ago. I feel like I'm sixteen again, but
I'm going to miss my lovely silver hair. It's the only thing I liked about

Five Rites seemed like a good exercise program, but frankly, I didn't
believe all the wild claims. I am now midway into my fourth week, and
for the past eight or so days have noticed my 'pretty' silver-gray hair
turning black! I know this sounds crazy, but it's happening right before
my eyes. This is weird, but I'm sold on your program."

age eighty-three I had lost all interest in life. I was thinking of putting
myself in a home, and I didn't think I would live much longer. Then I
discovered your book about the Five Rites. I have been doing them only
a short time, but already my memory has improved 50 percent, and I feel
so much more alive. Everyone tells me I am looking younger all the time.
Thanks to the Five Rites, I am a completely different person now, and
am continuing to improve. Everyone should read this book."

as my feet and knees had been affected. I also had lots of back pain.
I was in such bad shape. Now I can walk several miles & no longer
have pain. I believe I would have been in a wheelchair today, if it were
not for your book."

I regard as remarkable. Another amazing thingmy hands, which looked

used to drag myself half asleep to class in the morning. After I do the
rites, though, I feel refreshed and alert, even looking forward to my
studies. Also, I'd been working out for quite some time with only mediocre
results. Since starting the rites, I've noticed a dramatic improvement
in my performance and an increase in how much I can lift. I'm not sure
I buy the metaphysical explanation, but I am sure that the Five Rites
work Thank you."

this book claims is true. I haven't been sick for one and a half yearsnot
even a cold. Without even trying I went from 179 lbs. to 149. My energy
level has risen 100 percent. I don't come home from work dead tired anymore.
Although I'm fifty-eight years old, I could pass for early forties. Yours
is the best book I have ever purchased."

I had so many aches and pains: knee pain, shoulder pain, migraines. Now
I very seldom have headaches, my knee pain is gone, I never have colds,
my sexual ability has been rekindled, and I receive many compliments from
people who tell me I look much younger than my age."
