Today is a BIG day for me. After 25 years of keeping my life very personal, my journey from sickness to health, which spanned three continents and involved major life changes, is published for all the world to see. Unlike the first edition which received no marketing and was only listed on Amazon, Fire Your Doctor Cure Yourself - Second Edition has been distributed to all the major booksellers.
To be clear, this book is not about me. It is about YOU. Everyone who is suffering a chronic, 'incurable' disorder, who is being badly let down by a Health System that only MANAGES disease and has no interest in CURING it. Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Arthritis, Obesity, Allergies, Asthma, auto-immune disorders, and a bewildering number of conditions I never heard of as a child, have reached frightening levels. Why, is pretty clear, although you will need to read the book to fully appreciate it.
I know what some of you are going through. How helpless and discouraged you feel when your Doctor says "There is no cure", and when you investigate alternatives, how overwhelmed you can be with information and choices. First hopeful, then disillusioned, as everything you try fails. It doesn't help that you don't really know what you are doing. It doesn't help you are addicted to comfort food (sedatives), or coffee (stimulants) and your adrenals are worn-out with stress, anxiety and illness. It doesn't help that you don't have the energy to even TRY to turn it around. Why would you even bother to correct your disorders if, as the Doctors say, "It's genetic"?
I have been there and understand. So utterly lacking in hope, I came very close to ending it all. But something stopped me. Suicide was not part of my maker's plan. Just like you see on postcards in Christian bookstores, where a supernatural 'light' shines through prison bars, onto imprisoned monks, I 'saw' that same celestial light and knew I could not end my suffering in such a way. Thus began my long and winding journey back to health. Long, because I knew little about health and even less about natural healing and made many mistakes. Winding, Because I moved around a lot. My voyage of discovery eventually led me to a quiet Indian backwater, where a short, pot-bellied Hindu, standing on one leg, muttering his mantras, cured my arthritis and opened my eyes to the wonder of natural healing. Inspired, I spent the following years studying and experimenting with 'Nature Cure', Ayurveda and a host of Alternative therapies.
It wasn't too long before people started to seek my advice, asking me to support them as they cleansed bodies and minds of toxic chemicals, parasites, thoughts and emotions. I coached them how to break addictions, alter lifestyles and turn their lives and health around. There was nothing complicated or 'scientific' about the methods. The impressive results I saw firmly convinced me the ancients knew what they were doing. That the answer to healing lies, not in suppressing symptoms, or adding toxic chemicals to an already weakened body, but in strengthening the immune system and restoring balance, by cleansing tissues, clearing away stagnation, blockages, and acid wastes; and providing the materials the body needs to repair and regenerate.
Modern Medicine can be brilliant with Acute and Emergency conditions but for chronic and degenerative disorders, unless and until Doctors address the underlying causes of disease, no amount of tinkering with genes, or chemistry, will fix it.
Today my book is published. Will it gain a following or will it end up, as most do, a vanity publication? That is up to you, my friends.
