"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.
The Power of Qigong Acupuncture
Andrew Adams had broken his right wrist and torn the ligaments. Conventional medicine is exceptional when it comes to resetting bones and surgical technology. Unfortunately the follow-up care lacks a physiologic approach to healing. In Europe and Asia all post surgical cases receive a systemic enzyme to prevent post-surgical scarring, adhesions, and reduce swelling. Conventional physical therapy was prescribed but was unable to effect a full range of wrist motion.
Andrew was in my office on a business meeting and was complaining of his wrist pain and severe restriction of his range of motion. I offered to do Qigong acupuncture to relieve his pain and possibly increase his range of motion. Andrew agreed. With my electronic acupuncture point finder, I located the points on his head that related to his wrist. Several points that were active were then stimulated by means of a special point probe.
Immediately upon completion of treatment, Andrew was shocked that his chronic wrist pain disappeared and he also regained full range of motion. In addition I told him to increase his Zymessence to six capsules a day to more effectively reduce the residual post-surgical swelling. The power of Qigong acupuncture dates back to the ancient Chinese dynasties. Fortunately for me and my patients my Qigong master is a twenty-third generation descendant who was taught the true technology of healing.
