“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.
Visual Disturbance Due to Parasites
When we hear the word parasites, most people think they only occur in poor and developing countries. However, parasitic infections also occur in the United States, and in some cases affect millions of people. Often they can go unnoticed, with few symptoms. But many times the infections cause serious illnesses, including seizures, blindness, pregnancy complications, heart failure, and even death. Anyone—regardless of race or economic status—can become infected.
I recently had a patient who presented with visual disturbance in which he experienced a peripheral distortion in his left eye. The patient saw what he describes as "snow" like a test pattern on an old TV set. He also present with fatigue, mental fog, lack of zest for living, poor concentration, anxiety, and a feeling of not being well.
A comprehensive examination reveled:
Treatment consisted of food based nutrients to clear out his liver, open up the drainage pathways, remove the heavy metals, then herbicides, then vaccines, and finally the infections. Before the patient left the office I gave him an oral dose of IverMectin, a safe anti-parasite medication that is used heavily in the veterinary industry.
Progress: Following the cranial adjustment and taking the food base supplements for one month, Werner stated that, "his left eye visual disturbance totally vanished." He also revealed he started experiencing more energy and regaining his zest for life. Another testament for better living through real food based supplements and structural realignment.
Note: The good news is that most parasitic infections can be prevented, and many are treatable. However, these infections are often undetected and untreated because most people do not know they are infected or at risk, or don't have access to appropriate care. Doctors are often unfamiliar with these parasitic infections, and therefore may not diagnose or treat them appropriately.
