Seven Reasons Why Today's
Conventional Medicine Is Obsolete
by Gerald H. Smith, DDS, DNM
Proponents of conventional medicine continue to espouse their mantra that today's medical concepts represent the "gold standard" in the health industry. The German Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels was reported to have told Hitler, that if you tell a big enough lie long enough people will believe it and if you continue to tell the same lie you will believe it. When one takes a closer look at what medicine is doing today, one quickly realizes that the American people have been sold an illusion of a "gold standard" which in reality is not only obsolete but dangerous.
Understanding the points presented below supports the premise that it makes no difference which governmental health care coverage is offered because the underlying medical principles of the health care delivery system are based on faulty science, disinformation, invasive procedures, and toxic drug remedies. As Albert Einstein said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result."
Number 1: Blood Tests
Blood tests used for diagnoses are based on ranges derived from a sick population. True health should be measured against a healthy population. A more logical approach and truer assessment would be to establish ranges based on 1000 healthy people who live a healthy lifestyle (eat organic food, drink clean water, exercise regularly, etc.) Unfortunately the values would place the majority of our population in the sick range.
A perfect example of the inaccuracy and absurdity of placing diagnostic value in blood testing is a patient, who in 2011, presented himself for a second opinion. His conventional medical doctors wanted him to have a liver transplant. His alkaline phosphatase (an enzyme measured in the blood signifying liver or bone damage) was elevated for many years and his liver had been swollen for the past 27 years. Not wanting to take anti-organ rejection medication for the rest of his life was the motivating factor for seeking a second opinion. An energetic medicine diagnostic approach revealed the presence of benzene and hepatitis B virus in his liver. Seven months later after adhering to a nutritional regime to remove the two offending stressors in his liver, his 27 year swollen liver went back to normal and his alkaline phosphatase also normalized. Blood tests do not reveal the underlying reason for the illness. It reality it only reveals the body's reaction to the underlying cause(s).
Number 2: Cancer Treatment
Cancer represents the ultimate breakdown of the immune system. Years of exposure to toxins provide the initiating factors for cancer. Example of toxins include heavy metals, chemicals, poisons released from root canal teeth, vaccines and their toxic fillers, genetically modified foods, radiation from Chernobyl and Fukushima, constant exposure to EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies: cell phone and Wi-Fi), processed foods, and psychological distress. These initiators coalesce to establish a polluted acidic body terrain and depress the immune system. All of the above allow opportunistic organisms to flourish and cause cell mutations.
A study published in August 2003 revealed that of adult cancer in the USA and Australia, the use of chemotherapy, when looking at adjuvant and curative use, provided a cure rate of only 2.1% of the time in the USA and 2.3% of the time in Australia. In essence chemotherapy, is ineffective 97% of the time and is touted as the "gold standard" of modern medicine.
Another example of medicine's Neanderthal approach to cancer was a recent patient that was referred to my office because of failed conventional cancer treatment. The patient had cancer in the tip of her right lung. Following the "gold standard" of cancer treatment, doctors cut out the cancerous portion of her right lung and provided chemo therapy. In six months the cancer came back in the upper portion of her right lung. Not wanting to endure the horrors of chemo therapy again, the patient opted for an alternative approach. Energy medicine was used to diagnose the primary stressors present in the patient's biopsy slides. Testing revealed a pesticide, cytomegalovirus, and mercury in the cancerous lung tissue as presented in the histologic slide. The concept of testing the histologic slide for the initiators of the patient's cancer was recently developed by this author and has been successful in resolving several other cancer cases. Because the patient could not afford an extensive vitamin program, she was placed on just the essential supplements to resolve the three primary stressors. Within six months the cancer in the upper portion of her lung disappeared. The body's cells want to go back to normal. If the offending stressors are removed then the body can go back to factory default. The closer one gets to the truth the more simplistic the solution. Unfortunately when it comes to cancer treatment in America, my clinical experience of over 48 years has shown me that most people diagnosed with the Big C function in fear mode and would rather be killed by a notorious doctor using unsuccessful therapies than be healed by a "quack" using natural remedies.
Number 3: Drug Therapy
The body is not deficient in drugs. Faulty logic focuses on changing the body's chemistry to restore blood values back to "normal." The captains of medical industry have artificially lowered the level of cholesterol so that more statin prescriptions could be written. The Weston Price Foundation established a normal cholesterol range of 200 to 250. The pharmaceutical companies have established normal to be 200 or below. What a great marketing strategy.
Prescription drug spending in the US shot up to about $374 billion in 2014. Statins undoubtedly made up a significant portion of this spending, and now consumers who take such drugs have much more to worry about than the dent it's making in their wallets.
"High" cholesterol is not a disease but just a reaction. A low functioning thyroid will cause elevated cholesterol. No amount of lowering the cholesterol level will fix an existing hypothyroid problem. This approach is pure insanity. The liver produces 80% of the body's cholesterol. Cholesterol is essential for cleansing the liver cells of toxins. Also cholesterol is the primary organic molecule in your brain, and a major constituent in the mylin sheath around your nerves. In addition, the adrenal cortex produces over 60 different hormones and every one of these 60+ hormones require a cholesterol base for its production. If the body is in distress, it needs additional adrenal hormones to meet the needs of the body and your cholesterol levels will rise.
Please read the documented side effects of the statin drugs:
- Causes dementia: Statins make cells unable to repair properly, create nerve problems, and destroy memory, cause forgetfulness and confusion
- Reduce your sex drive
- Increase your risk for developing type 2 diabetes and cancer
- Statins deplete Coenzyme Q10, which can lead to congestive heart failure
- Causes breakdown of muscle tissue (rhabdomyolysis) and pain through out the body
- Causes cataracts
- Causes fatigue
- Cause liver and kidney problems
- May speed up the aging process: statin drugs act as cellular poisons that accelerate aging and deactivating DNA repair
- Other adverse effects include: nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, headaches, rashes, myopathy, muscle aches or weakness, tendon problems, depression, chronic fatigue, heart disease, hypertension, stroke, peripheral neuropathies and can even cause death.
The criminality of the health industry was reinforced by a conversation I had with a medical doctor who worked for a VA hospital. He told me that he had to write a certain number of prescriptions for statin drugs each day. I asked him how he was able to sleep at nights. He never answered me.
Number 4: Contaminated Vaccines
Unknown to our citzens, who believe that the FDA, CDC, and physicians are protecting their health, was a major contamination issue that was suppressed by the CDC and FDA. On July 22, 2009, a special meeting was held with twenty-four leading scientists at the National Institutes of Health to discuss early findings that a newly discovered retrovirus was linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), prostate cancer, lymphoma, and eventually neurodevelopmental disorders in children. All the vaccines that were being produced on chicken embryos were contaminated with chicken retroviruses. The CDC and FDA knew about this discovery in 1990 and said nothing to alert the public. Why. The reason is simple. First the CDC would have lost millions of dollars if they would have had to dispose of the contaminated vaccines. Second, the public would have lost faith in the concept that vaccines were safe and would have resisted future inoculations. Doctor Judy Mikovit's reward for making this incredible discover was that she was put in jail and bankrupted by the powers that be. It is despicable that our own governmental agency, the FDA, and an independent corporation, the CDC, both lack academic and moral integrity. For those who are unaware, the CDC is an independent corporation who owns 57 patents on vaccines. This is the major reason why the required vaccine schedule for children keeps increasing.
Number 5: Faulty Concept of Autoimmune Disease
Did you ever ask yourself why the body in its infinite wisdom would attack itself? The reason is hidden in plain view. The organ being attacked is contaminated. Conventional medicine does not have the understanding nor the diagnostic tools to uncover the stressor(s). No blood test can uncover what's hidden within the tissues or organs. In fact they do not even know what to look for. It's easier to cover their ignorance by telling an unsuspecting public they have an autoimmune disease.
My own daughter was diagnosed with an "autoimmune disease," Hashimoto's Disease, and her endocrinologist wanted to prescribe Tapazole to suppress her overactive thyroid. I told my daughter not to take the drug and tell her endocrinologist I would treat her autoimmune with problem with alternative therapies. The doctor politely told my daughter that alternative treatments do not work. Using energetic medicine technology, I diagnosed Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) in her thyroid. When tested energetically both Noni (natural antiviral remedy) and ionic silver tested strong against the EBV. I also loaned her my Rife machine to treat the virus. In three months my daughter's thyroid was normal, which was verified by blood tests and disappearance of clinical symptoms. Her endocrinologist was not interested in how I successfully diagnosed and treated her autoimmune disease. Most physicians do not want to be confused with the facts.
Number 6: Misconceptions of Congestive Heart Failure
Conventional medicine views congestive heart failure as an ongoing disease that gets worse over time. This is a false narrative. In reality congestive heart failure is caused by nutritional deficiencies as well as mercury and other toxins from dental and environmental sources. The heart is the biggest endocrine organ in the body. At the myoneural junctions (where the sympathetic nerves innervate the heart muscle), norepinephrine is produced, which causes the heart to forcibly contract and pump the blood around the entire body. The precursor to norepinephrine is the amino acid tyrosine. It's a no brainer.
In the 1980s, my father was in acute congestive heart failure. I gave him 1500 mg of tyrosine along with magnesium, calcium, and potassium orotate and in conjunction with coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine, natural B-complex vitamins plus a protomorphagen, Cardio Plus. In one week his congestive heart failure completely resolved. My father was in an experimental program for cardiac arrhythmias with other CHF patients and placed on experimental drugs. I called the pharmaceutical company about the life expectancy on these experimental medications. They told me on average patient's live approximately two years. All the participants in the study died in two years except my father. Four years later I asked my father's cardiologist if he wanted to know what vitamins I had my father on. He had no interest in the fact that I was able to reduce his medications by seventy-five percent with food based nutrients. It's clear to me why medicine still operates in the dark ages. When you present physicians with clinically proven results, they reject it. The medical schools are no different.
Number 7: Dissemination of False Information
The history of the medical establishment is replete with instances where disinformation has been purposely put out to confuse the public. A primary example is the statement that homeopathy is a pseudoscience and its remedies have been found to be no more effective than placebo. It is interesting to note that The Royal Family has supported homeopathy for generations and there is still a court homeopath, Dr. Peter Fisher. He is also Clinical Director and Director of Research at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine. Doctor Fisher has stated that homeopathy was 'safe,' 'popular with patients' and reduced the need for antibiotics.
Writing in the British Medical Journal, Dr. Fisher further stated that alternative therapies were often 'misunderstood' and questioned research which suggested they only work through a placebo effect. He also pointed to several studies that showed integrating homeopathy with conventional medicines led to better patient outcomes and the reduced use of potentially hazardous drugs.
Governments of today are using homeopathy to prevent, treat, or break epidemics within their countries. Some examples are:
- The Indian government controls epidemics of malaria, Japanese encephalitis, dengue fever, and epidemic fever with homeopathy
- The Cuban government now depends on homeopathy to manage its leptospirosis epidemics and dengue fever outbreaks
- The Brazilian government funded two large trials that successfully reduced the incidence of meningococcal disease in those given the homeopathy prophylactic
- The governments of Thailand, Columbia and Brazil use homeopathy to manage dengue fever outbreaks and epidemics
(References and sources for these and other instances are found at: Homeoprophylaxis-Human-Records-Studies-Trials [PDF])
Medical students receive at best three hours of nutritional education in their four years of training. They are taught, incorrectly, that synthetic vitamins are no different from food based supplements. With little to no real background in understanding the principles of natural remedies, medical students are easy prey for this disinformation. The false narrative is then continuously reinforced by the pharmaceutical industry once they become medical practitioners.
Doctor Royal Lee, founder of a food based vitamin company, Standard Process Laboratory, stated "In fact, the Food & Drug laws seem to be suspended where synthetic imitations of good foods are concerned, and actually perverted to prosecute makers and sellers of real products. The synthetic product is always a simple chemical substance, while the natural is a complex mixture of related and similar materials. Pure natural Vitamin E was found three times as potent as pure synthetic Vitamin E. Of course the poisonous nature of the synthetic Vitamin D is well established. WHY DO NOT THE PEOPLE AND MEDICAL MEN KNOW THESE FACTS? Is it because the commercial promoters of cheap imitation food and drug products spend enough money to stop the leaking out of information?" [Lee R. How and Why Synthetic Poisons Sold as Imitations of Natural Foods and Drugs? 1948].
The above seven topics represent only the tip of the iceberg. My brief overview of these issues was designed to whet your appetite to dig deeper into the medical cesspool. Because of the Internet, people around the world are slowly waking up to the benefits of natural healing as opposed to conventional medicine's distorted view of how the body works. As the population becomes more aware of medicine's obsolete therapies and failures, the establishment has had to mandate therapies like vaccines in order to get compliance.
My prediction is that the time is quickly approaching when conventional medicine will implode on its own ignorance and resistance to change.

conducted by Dr. Smith.
Doctor Smith graduated Temple University School of Dentistry in 1969 and completed a two-year tour of active duty as a captain in the U.S. Army Dental Corp. After practicing conventional dentistry for four years, Dr. Smith completed a two-year post-graduate orthodontic program in 1976. Sir, Doctor Smith is a Knight Hospitaller a dedicated professional organization dating back to the year 1050. The Knights Hospitallers have official recognition from the United Nations and the Pope for there tremendous humanitarian work with the poor. Doctor Smith is certified by the World Organization For Natural Medicine to practice natural medicine.
Dr. Smith's broad base of post-graduate training has enabled him to intregrate many health care specialties. He has accumulated an impressive list of credentials, which includes lecturing at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, National Academy of General Dentistry, Academy of Head, Neck and Facial Pain, Yonsei Memorial Hospital in Seoul Korea and dozens of guest lecture appearances at national and international symposia. He holds memberships and affiliations with a number of professional associations including the International Associations for Orthodontists and Academy of Head, Neck and Facial Pain. He has been an active member of the Holistic Dental Association since 1993, past-president of the Holistic Dental Association and editor of their professional journal from 2003 to 2006. He also served as past-president of the Pennsylvania Craniomandibular Society.
Dr. Smith is a recognized international authority and pioneer in craniomandibular somatic disorders with a focus on resolving chronic pain. Dr. Smith was the first researcher in the world to document cranial bone motion by means of his ground breaking research and development of the Dental Orthogonal Radiographic Analysis System. He was also the first researcher in the world to discover how to resolve chronic pain by removing tension patterns within the human skull by means of the Occlusal Cranial Balancing Technique. He is author of two landmark textbooks for professionals, Cranial-Dental-Sacral Complex and Dental Orthogonal Radiographic Analysis. He has also written an important book for the lay person, Headaches Aren't Forever, a downloadable E-book, Alternative Treatments For Conquering Chronic Pain, and Reversing Cancer: A Journey From Cancer to Cure — a survivors guide for understanding the nature of cancer, restoring the immune system, psychological healing, destroying cancer, and regeneration. Doctor Smith's thirty-nine years of clinical research has identified several of the major missing links for successfully treating dentally related medical issues and chronic pain.
In addition, Dr. Smith has published over thirty articles and contributed chapters to several professional books, developer of the Physiologic Adaptive Range Concept, Occlusal Cranial Balancing Technique, Quantum Testing Technique and a special dental x-ray analysis system for measuring cranial bone motion. He holds two US Patents: a unique precision attachment for dental fixed bridgework and second patent for a flash adaptor to facilitate taking intraoral photographs. Doctor Smith is also president of the International Center For Nutritional Research, Inc. and he still maintains a private practice in Bucks County Pennsylvania, where he focuses his integrative healing concepts on chronic pain patients.
