"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.
Resolving Chronic Post-Whiplash Headaches and Plantar Fasciitis
There is nothing worse than suffering from chronic headaches and then have to endure chronic plantar fasciitis as an added bonus. This was the case for Patricia Hartman. In 2015 Patricia was in a motor vehicle accident and left with chronic migraine headaches, which no healthcare professional was able to resolve. All the high tech MRIs, blood tests, and examinations could not uncover Patricia’s underlying cause for her chronic pain. In addition, in 2019 she developed plantar fasciitis in her left foot. Again no resolution was forthcoming from medicine’s gold standard of science based technology.
Patricia’s recent appointment in June 2020 focused on evaluation of her chronic whiplash related headaches. From my 50 plus years of clinical practice, I have observed that such MVA trauma results in a reversal of cranial motion. There are a handful of practitioners worldwide who have any clue regarding this issue. Patricia was examined and her findings revealed a reversed skull motion. A comprehensive cranial adjustment was performed, which resulted in her five years of migraines immediately disappearing. In a follow-up visit she presented additional chief complaints of right shoulder pain plus a history of suffering a year long bout of plantar fasciitis. I suggested that I do Qigong Matrix, which is based on an ancient Chinese form of acupuncture (without needles) to resolve her chronic pain. Patricia agreed and she was tested to determine the “matrix” points on her head which related to the pain patterns she was experiencing. A special infrared laser was used to stimulate the points relating to her pain. Immediately following treatment, Patricia keep walking around and stretching her foot in an attempt to elicit her pain. To her surprise her pain was totally gone. Modern medicine offers incredible surgical technology but lacks the sophistication of embracing ancient wisdom, which has proven itself for over 5,000 years.
The previous case studies have been presented to open people’s minds to the many clinically proven non-invasive technologies that are available but are unknown to most medical practitioners. It behooves patients to investigate alternatives before embarking on the use of toxic drugs and/or surgical steel solutions.
