"Splinters" Book Review
This is a book written in layman's terms. It's straight-forward, deconstructs the overly complex medical jargon and appeals to common sense...which is probably why it goes over the medical industry's head. And that's kind of the whole point.
Dr. Gerald Smith has been practicing medicine all over the world for over 50 years, and in his book he has outlined numerous case studies of seemingly "miraculous" cures, only he claims that they are anything but. In fact, his cures are almost too simple. His approach is to look for the root cause of each ailment in each individual patient. In contrast to the standard method of care, which treats broad symptoms over root causes, Dr. Smith shows over and over again how acknowledging that every ailment has a root cause (and the body doesn't just randomly attack itself or randomly succumb to germs) is the biggest hurdle that medical practitioners are facing when it comes to helping their patients. At times he goes even further and shows real life examples of doctors having unintentionally done more harm than good, while the true cure was under their noses all along.
This is an eye‑opening book. It challenges the status quo of medical care and backs it up with case after case of simple treatment methods that worked to quickly and "miraculously" cure heart disease, migraines, cancer, infections, chronic pain and so on. Armed with the knowledge that there are other (more) effective treatment methods, patients will be able to have some control over their own health.
Here's hoping the medical industry as a whole will come to understand the role they have played in creating this world of chronic illness, and will then realize the power of simplicity in correcting their errors. Taking a look at Dr. Smith's book would certainly be a start.
Hepatocellular Carcinoma Pain Reversed with Unconventional Therapy
According to the Mayo Clinic, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common type of primary liver cancer. Hepatocellular carcinoma occurs most often in people with chronic liver diseases, such as cirrhosis caused by hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection.
R.S. was a 72 year-old female patient diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma. The physician’s report stated that the patient’s lesion represented a metastatic disease that could be related to the carcinoma of the colon that was previously resected. The pathology report documented the presence of the cancer from the biopsy.
The patient refused conventional treatment of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. The patient was placed on a nutritional regime that included a special herbal detox formula, glutathione, bromelain, and Livaplex. The patient’s diet was modified to remove all fats, dairy products and red meats. She was instructed to consume raw foods whenever possible (vegetables and seasonable fruits).
Three weeks after the nutritional therapy was initiated, the patient’s constant pain in the liver area completely resolved.
Remember that Cancer is Not a Disease> (See Case Report #129). Cancer is a survival mechanism that the body employs to stay alive. When the body is deprived of oxygen, the innate intelligence of the cell modifies its software allowing it to convert glucose into energy via a fermentation process (like in the production of wine or beer). Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for this discovery. Why has his research been ignored for so many years?
