"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.

Twenty Year Migraines and Low Back Pain
Totally Resolved

J.G. was a 68 year-old female who suffered severe migraine headaches and low back pain for 20 years. The patient received a multitude of therapies over the twenty year period that included various medications, chiropractic manipulations and physical therapy. Unfortunately, these approaches only provided temporary relief at best. The patient’s underlying problem was an old set of dentures that were severely worn down in a distorted horizontal plane. The structural imbalances set up by the misaligned denture was the direct cause for the upper cervical muscle spasms that entrapped the nerves and blood vessels to her head. Within several weeks after her new upper and lower dentures were inserted, the patient’s twenty years of migraine headaches and low back pain totally disappeared.

The spine has thirty 33 vertebrae with each having a three point contact with the exception of the atlas (first cervical vertebra). The third point of contact that stabilizes the atlas is the occlusion (upper and lower teeth). Faulty dentures, missing posterior molar and bicuspid teeth, worn down teeth or improperly restored posterior teeth all will directly affect the spine.
