New Directions for the Modern Practitioner


As a new generation of disillusioned patients flock to medical offices across the country with more complex diseases and conditions, a new type of practitioner must be born to address these problems. This modern healer must adapt to a failed medical industry that has abandoned the notion of prevention and complete health of body, mind and spirit.

In my experience as a medical doctor in both conventional and alternative medicine, I have witnessed first hand the epidemic of toxic patients that are struggling with their health and the diseases and conditions that come as a result of their toxicity. When I speak of a patient’s toxicity, I not only refer to the exogenous (chemicals, solvents, additives, heavy metals, etc.) and endogenous toxins (uric acid, homocystein, polyglutamine, dopamine-derived neurotoxins, etc.), but electromagnetic pollution and toxic “thoughts”, or toxic energies. This combination of multiple types of toxicity, both seen and unseen, is the leading determinant of disease. As practitioners, we must be aware of the various great accomplishments in the understanding of toxicity and the body – Dr. Reckeweg’s Homotoxicology, Dr. Rau’s “Barrell Method”, Dr. Menetrier’s Diathesis, Dr. Shimmel’s “Biological Score”, as well as the great minds that taught of the importance of energy in the body and how toxic emotions and thoughts can greatly impact our health.

Whenever explaining the importance of detoxification in a patient’s treatment plan, I like to simplify the task by making a simple analogy. You body is like your home – if you allow garbage and dirt to accumulate without ever cleaning, you are inviting infestations of pests to come to your home and run havoc within it. These opportunistic pests can devastate a home. In the same way we need a clean home to avoid infestations, we cannot ignore our body’s terrain and how important it is to eliminate toxins from our body in order to achieve health.

Over 150 years ago, it was Louis Pasteur who originally claimed that germs caused all diseases. Yet shortly before his death, he understood the error in his thinking and proclaimed – “the microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything”. This statement seems to have become completely forgotten today. We utilize medications without looking at the most essential part of our body: the terrain. Like coming to a home full of garbage (toxins) – instead of eliminating the garbage, we use mousetraps to catch infestations (diseases). As long as garbage (toxins) remains, pests (diseases) will take advantage of the situation. This is the reason I always emphasize to my patients the importance of detoxification.

Whenever we have high toxicity, there will always be:

  • A compromised immune system
  • Poorer function of the organs
  • Opportunistic organisms that will take advantage of the situation

This is the reason I always emphasize to my patients the importance of detoxification, and personalize each patient’s treatment to maximize the removal of toxins from the body.
