History of Health & Medicine

Throughout history we have known that the best medicine, is no "medicine," but rather what we find in nature. Below are quote dating back thousands of years. Why haven't most doctors been listening?

[]      "One-quarter of what you eat keeps you alive. The other three-quarters keeps your doctor
     Alive." (Hieroglyph found in an ancient Egyptian tomb.)

[]      "At the end of times the merchants of the word will deceive the nations of the world through
     Their Pharmacia." (sorcery) - Rev 18:23

[]      "Doctors give drugs of which they know little, into bodies, of which they know less, for
     Diseases of which they know nothing at all." Voltaire

[]      "The physician should not treat the disease but the patient who is suffering from it."

[]      "Of several remedies, the physician should choose the least sensational." Hippocrates

[]      "Let food be thy medicine, and let thy medicine be food." Hippocrates

[]      "And we have made of ourselves living cesspools, and driven doctors to invent names for
     Our diseases." Plato

[]      "When you are sick of sickness, you are no longer sick." Old Chinese Proverb

[]      "The carpenter desires timber, the physician disease." Rig Veda IX. 7.9

[]      "What ails the physician that he dies of the disease. That he would have cured in time gone
     by? There died alike he who administered the drug and he who took it, and he who
     Imported and sold the drug, and he who bought it." (Verses upon the death in Baghdad of
     The physician Yuhanna ibn Masawayh in the year 857)

[]      "The work of the doctor will, in the future, be ever more that of an educator, and ever less
     That of a man who treats ailments." Lord Horder
[]      "All drugs are poisons the benefit depends on the dosage." Philippus Theophrastrus Bombast
     That of Aureolus Paracelsus (1493-1541)

[]      "All that man needs for health and healing has been provided by God in nature, the
     Challenge of science is to find it." Philippus Theophrastrus Bombast that of Aureolus
     Paracelsus (1493-1541)

[]      "I find medicine is the best of all trades because whether you do any good or not you still
     Get your money." (Moliere: "A Physician in Spite of Himself," 1664)

[]      "Never, no never does Nature say one thing and wisdom another." Johann Christolph
     Frederick von Schuller

[]      "Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine
     Will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of
     Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a
     Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom." Benjamin Rush, MD.,
     a signer of the Declaration of Independence and personal physician to George Washington

[]      "The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will
     Cure and prevent disease with nutrition." Thomas Edison

[]      "If we doctors threw all our medicines into the sea, it would be that much better for our
     Patients and that much worse for the fishes." Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendel
     Holmes, MD

[]      "It is not... That some people do not know what to do with truth when it is offered to them,
     But the tragic fate is to reach, after patient search, a condition of mind-blindness, in which
     The truth is not recognized, though it stares you in the face." Sir William Osler, physician,

[]      "We must admit that we have never fought the homeopath on matters of principle. We
     Fought them because they came into our community and got the business."
     Dr. J.N. McCormack, AMA, 1903

[]      "It's supposed to be a secret, but I'll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing. We only help
     And encourage the doctor within." Albert Schweitzer, M.D.

[]      "One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedents of chemical therapy
     Over nutrition. It's a substitution of artificial therapy over nature, of poisons over food, in
     Which we are feeding people poisons trying to correct the reactions of starvation."
     Dr. Royal Lee, January 12, 1951

[]      "The human body heals itself and nutrition provides the resources to accomplish the task."
     Roger Williams Ph.D. (1971)

[]      "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Your mother...

From Lesser Known Sources

[]      "What makes me so certain that the natural human lifespan is far in excess of the actual one
     is this. Among all my autopsies (and I have performed over 1000), I have never seen a
     person who died of old age. In fact, I do not think that anyone has ever died of old age yet.
     We invariably die because one vital part has worn out too early in proportion to the rest of
     the body." Dr. Hans Selye
[]      "Disease is a lack of health. Health is not a lack of disease." Unknown

[]      "God, in His infinite wisdom, neglected nothing and if we would eat our food without trying
     to improve, change or refine it, thereby destroying its life-giving elements, it would meet
     all requirements of the body." Jethro Kloss

[]      "You cannot poison your body into health with drugs, chemo or radiation. "Health" can
     only be achieved with healthful living." T.C. Fry

[]      "Health requires healthy food." Roger Williams

[]      "Nutrition can be compared with a chain in which all essential items are separate links. We
     know what happens if one link of a chain is weak or is missing. The whole chain falls
     apart." Patrick Wright, Ph.D.

[]      "What is impossible to see from the viewpoint of those who believe in cures is that the very
     symptoms the good doctors have suppressed and turned into chronic disease were the
     body's only means of correcting the problem! The so-called "disease" was the only "cure"
     possible!" Dr. Philip Chapman - 1981

[]      "It is time to lay to rest the notion that germs jump into people and cause diseases."
     Emanuel Cheraskin, M.D., D.M.D.

[]      "It seems that some consideration should be given to the cause of our mounting physical
     disabilities, but instead of going to the root of our troubles -- wrong habits of eating and
     drinking -- we rush to the medicine shelf and smother our uncomfortable and distressing
     symptoms under an avalanche of pills, potions and palliatives." Brother Roloff

[]      "The word incurable is modern. I suspect coined by allopaths. The word incurable is not
     found in any indigenous language. Translated it means: I do not know how to cure you.
     But instead of taking the responsibility to tell you that, or refer you to someone who might
     be able to help with your cure, I will instead guilt trip you and blame YOU for being
     incurable and ruining my day." D.

[]      "The consideration of man's body has not changed to meet the new conditions of this
     artificial environment that has replaced his natural one. The result is that of perceptual
     discord between man and his environment. The effect of this discord is a general
     deterioration of man's body, the symptoms of which are termed disease." Professor Hilton

[]      "Vitality and beauty are gifts of Nature for those who live according to its laws." Leonard
     Da Vinci

[]      "When you're green inside, you're clean inside." Dr. Bernard Jensen

[]      "If people only knew the healing power of laughter and joy, many of our fine doctors would
     be out of business. Joy is one of Nature's greatest medicines. Joy is always healthy. A
     pleasant state of mind tends to bring abnormal conditions back to normal." Catherine

[]      "DO GERMS CAUSE DISEASE? Or could it be the other way around...first the disease, then
     the germs. Natural Hygiene contends that germs do not cause disease. They are not the
     originators. Most diseases occur when people allow themselves to become enervated, that
     is, low in nerve energy. As a consequence, the organs of excretion fail to function
     normally and waste material accumulates in the body. When this waste continues to build
     up, exceeding the body's toleration point, a crisis arises. The body, to offset this
     overabundance of poisonous matter, begins to react. The result of this reaction is
     sometimes a cold, the flu, pneumonia, or some such, depending on the individual. At this
     crisis point of elimination, germs may or may not be present. They are sure to come later,
     not to attack, but to assist in the cleanup or cleansing process." Dr. Alec Burton

[]      "Disease is the warning, and therefore the friend - not the enemy - of mankind." Dr. George
     S. Weger

[]      "Actually bacteria are our symbiotic partners in both health and disease. They serve a useful
     role. As scavengers, they make harmless or remove undesirable substances within our
     bodies. They also elaborate certain of our body needs. That is, they help build complex
     organic compounds from simple ingredients. A notable example of this is the production
     of vitamin B-12 in our intestines." T. C. Fry

[]      "Infection is no war in which the body is fighting invaders. The bacteria that come to these
     sites are symbiotic and help the body in elaborating dead cells and tissues for expulsion -
     they are partners in the cleanup process. When this has been accumulated, the bacteria
     disappear and the wound heals. Infection...is a body cleaning process for a body burdened
     with toxic materials." T. C. Fry

[]      "Germs do not cause disease! Nature never surrounded her children with enemies. It is the
     individual himself who makes disease possible in his own body because of poor living
     habits... Do mosquitoes make the water stagnant; or does stagnant water attract the
     mosquitoes? We should all be taught that germs are friends and scavengers attracted by
     disease, rather than enemies causing disease... As their internal environment is, so will be
     the attraction for any specific micro-organism... The germ theory and vaccination are kept
     going by commercialism." Dr. Robert R. Gross

[]      "The cell is immortal. It is merely the fluid in which it floats that degenerates. Renew this
     fluid at regular intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition, and as far as we
     know, the pulsation of life can go on forever." Dr. Alexis Carrell - Nobel prize winner

[]      "We need to re-direct our perspectives of microbes and see them in a new light. In terms of
     bacteria, for example, we need to appreciate them as: Bodily inhabitants who assist us in
     such ways as protecting us from other organisms (e.g. fungi), assisting in digestion and
     metabolism of food, synthesizing vitamins, and helping to eliminate waste materials."
     Dr. Paul Goldberg

[]      "The absorption and organization of sunlight, the essence of life, is derived almost
     exclusively through plants. Since light is the driving force of every cell in our bodies, that
     is why we need green plants." Dr. Bircher-Benner

[]      "Warmth, moisture, food -- these are the causes that activate latent germs and arouse them
     to activity. They exist, all except the food, in the mouth, nose and throat at all times. The
     food is thrown out into these, as excretions, in disease. The germs feed on the excretions.
     They are scavengers. They were never anything else and will never be anything else. They
     break up and consume the discharge from the tissues. This is the function ascribed
     to germs everywhere in nature outside the body and is their real and only function in
     disease. They are purifying and beneficial agents.
     The medical profession has worked itself into hysteria over the germ theory and is using it
     to exploit an all too credulous public. Germs are ubiquitous. They are in the air we
     breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink. We cannot escape them. We can destroy
     them only to a limited extent. It is folly to attempt to escape disease by attempting to
     destroy or escape germs. Once they are in the body, the physician has no means of
     destroying them that will not, at the same time, destroy the patient. We cannot avoid
     germs. We must be proof against them. We have to accept them as one of the joys of life."
     Dr. Herbert Shelton

[]      "(Natural) Hygienists object to the germ theory of disease because germs do not cause
     disease. They may be present in disease processes, and they may complicate a disease
     with their waste products which can be very toxic at times, but the germ or virus alone is
     never the sole cause of disease." Dr. Virginia V. Vetrano

[]      "Forgiveness, love and our connection with the Divine is the medicine that is healing the
     sickness of our time." J. Artos Roske

[]      "When you see the Golden Arches you are probably on the road to the Pearly Gates."
     William Castelli, MD - Director, Framingham Heart Study

[]      "I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive
     poison that will produce serious effects on a long range basis. Any attempt to use water
     this way is deplorable." Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd - Past President of the American Medical

[]   According to the World Health Organization (WHO), America is the 37th healthiest nation
      in the world. Basically the American Medical Association's team is in 37th place. When was the
      last time you took the word of a 37th place team as Gospel? Steve Plog - Founder, Results Project.
