"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.
How Safe are Vaccines?
In October, 2019, a thirty-one year-old female patient was forced to get the flu vaccine at the ophthalmology office where she worked. Interestingly the CDC admits that the flu vaccine at best is only 10% effective in preventing the flu. In addition to the tiny amounts of the attenuated viruses, the vaccine has a lot of toxic adjuvants (chemicals reported to increase the body’s immune response) which are potentially harmful. Such items as: formaldehyde (a known cancer causing substance), aluminum salts (neurotoxic to brain tissue), thimerosal, (ethyl mercury also a known neurotoxin), chicken egg protein (vaccines grown on chicken embryos have been known to absorb retro viruses (causing many symptoms), antibiotics (pathogens become resistant after a number of exposures), and pork-based gelatin as a stabilizer.
One major issue that often is not factored into the vaccine equation is the patient’s constitution. Lori had a past history of a weak thyroid. In fact, that patient had an adverse reaction at three years of age from a routine childhood vaccination. The patient had itchy skin for seventeen years. The vaccine toxins adversely affected her thyroid causing constant skin itching and roughness. After 17 years, the patient’s itching was resolved with homeopathic nosodes to neutralize the chemicals and vaccine. The patient hadn’t had a vaccine in over 10 years. Getting the flu vaccine pushed her immune system over the edge. She immediately broke out in a rash over her face (see photos). The patient had to be put on antioxidants to counteract the toxins.
The irony of the whole situation is that if your immune system is healthy you do not need a vaccine to protect you against the flu. In addition, it is my professional opinion, that people have the right to make an informed decision. It is amazing that you cannot buy a car that has no crash tests proving its safety. You cannot bring your newborn baby home without an approved car seat that has been proven safe yet you can subject your baby’s body as well as yourself to a chemical that does not have any safety studies that have been submitted in the past 30 years. Do you think there is a disconnect here?
