| Misdirected life force is the activity in disease process. Disease
has no energy save what it borrows from the life of the organism.
It is by adjusting the life force that healing must be brought about,
and it is the sun as transformer and distributor of primal spiritual
energy that must be utilized in this process, for life and the sun
are so intimately connected.
Kabbalah (B.C. 1200?-700? A.D.)
Men worry over the great number of diseases, while doctors worry
over the scarcity of effective remedies.
Pien Ch'iao (fl. B.C. 255)
Some remedies are worse than the disease.
Publilius Syrus (fl. B.C. 42)
Prevention is better than cure.
Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not
consist of compounding pills and plasters; it deals with the very
processes of life, which must be understood before they may be guided.
Once a disease has entered the body, all parts which are healthy
must fight it: not one alone, but all. Because a disease might mean
their common death. Nature knows this; and Nature attacks the disease
with whatever help she can muster.
The poets did well to conjoin music and medicine, because the
office of medicine is but to tune the curious harp of man's body.
By medicine life may be prolonged, yet death will seize the doctor
He who cures a disease may be the skillfullest, but he that prevents
it is the safest physician.
Thomas Fuller (1608-1661)
As long as men are liable to die and are desirous to live, a physician
will be made fun of, but he will be well paid.
La Bruyere (1645-1696)
Doctors prescribe medicine of which they know little, to cure
diseases of which they know less, in human beings of which they
I know of nothing more laughable than a doctor who does not die
of old age.
The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature
cures the disease.
He's the best physician that knows the worthlessness of the most
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
Disease is the retribution of outraged Nature.
Hosea Ballou (1771-1852)
It is with disease of the mind, as with those of the body; we
are half dead before we understand our disorder, and half cured
when we do.
A bodily disease which we look upon as whole and entire within
itself, may, after all, be but a symptom of some ailment in the
Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)
To array a man's will against his sickness is the supreme art
Physician - One upon whom we set our hopes when ill and our dogs
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914?)
Medicine is a science of uncertainty and an art of probability.
William Osler (1849-1919)
Variability is the law of life, and as no two faces are the same,
so no two bodies are alike, and no two individuals react alike and
behave alike under the abnormal conditions which we know as disease.
William Osler (1849-1919)
The modern sympathy with invalids is morbid. Illness of any kind
is hardly a thing to be encouraged in others.
Oscar Wilde (1856-1900)
The majority of the diseases which the human family have been
and still are suffering under, they have created by ignorance of
their own organic health, and work perseveringly to tear themselves
to pieces, and when broken down and debilitated in body and mind,
send for the doctor and drug themselves to death.
Ellen White, co-founder
Seventh Day Adventists, 1866
Happiness? That's nothing more than good health and a poor memory.
Nine-tenths of our sickness can be prevented by right thinking
plus right hygiene - nine-tenths of it!
Henry Miller (1891-1980)
Barn-yard medicine has not given us any vaccination procedure
that really protects against illness, but many that endanger the
body, that even bring death.
Dr. med. Guttman, extract from Biologische Heilkunst, 1932/10
The prerequisite for today's medical policy is naturally the currently
predominant system of medicine. The sick are the source of income,
therefore it is necessary for sick people to be there, yes, it proves
advantageous if one makes the people artificially sick.
Dr. med. Steintl: 'International Medical Policy', 1938, Berlin
Since the regimentation of Medicine by quacks and medical gangsters
in control of the American Medical Association, this organization
has become one of the most vicious rackets in the country.
Dr. Charles Lyman Loffler, as cited by Morris Bealle in The Drug
When oestrogen first became available for clinical use, there
was an understandable over-enthusiasm for its application... If
one depends on the beautifully embossed brochures which exhort the
practitioner with every mail one falls, unhappily, into the security
of the illusion that there are neither contra-indications nor side-effects
in the use of estrogen.
Drs. Robert A. Kimbrough and S. Lion Israel, Journal of the American
Medical Association, Vol. 138, December 25, 1949, p.1216
Vaccination also causes leukemia to break out.
Dr. B. Duperrat, of the Saint-Louis Hospital in Paris, French
medical journal Presse Medicale, March 12, 1955
Research is subordinated (not to a long-term social benefit) but
to an immediate commercial profit. Currently, disease (not health)
is one of the major sources of profit for the pharmaceutical industry,
and the doctors are willing agents of those profits.
Dr. Pierre Bosquet , Nouvelle Critique, France, May 1961
When will they realize that there are too many drugs? No fewer
than 150,000 preparations are now in use. About 15,000 new mixtures
and dosages hit the market each year, while about 12,000 die off...We
simply don't have enough diseases to go around. At the moment the
most helpful contribution is the new drug to counteract the untoward
effect of other new drugs.
Dr. Walter Modell of Cornell University Medical College, Time,
May 26, 1961
Today's medicine is at the end of its road. It can no longer be
transformed, modified, readjusted. That's been tried too often.
Today's medicine must DIE in order to be reborn. We must prepare
its complete renovation.
French physician, Prof. Maurice Delort, inaugural session of
the Academy de Bourges, December 16, 1962
After a 20-year study, Dr. Kempe [Dr. Charles Henry Kempe, University
of Colorado] recommends abolishing smallpox vaccination. Since 1948
there have been no deaths from smallpox in the United States. In
the same period more than 300 persons have died from smallpox vaccinations,
including vaccine-induced encephalitis.
The Evening Bulletin, Philidelphia, May 7, 1965
... 61 percent of all deformities in new-born infants and 88 percent
of all stillbirths must be attributed to the effects of medicaments.
Dr. W. Chr. Mueller of the 1st University Hospital for Women,
Munich. In the German medical journal Muenchener Medizinische Wochenschrift,
Thalidomide is not the first nor the last drug to have brought
heartbreak where it was meant to bring help. There have been quite
a number of other tragedies since Thalidomide went wrong 13 years
An editorial in The Economist, London, January 6, 1973
Millions of people have been vaccinated with the polio vaccine,
which contains the cancer-forming SV-40 virus originally found in
monkeys. It is possible that it will take 20 years or still longer
before the possible damaging effects of this virus come to light.
Professor J. Clausen of the Institute of Preventive Medicine
at the University of Odense, March 1973
Every month, millions are in fact being damaged by treatment which
is supposed to be helping them.
Dr. Werner Lehmpfuhl, general practitioner in Hanover, in the
weekly magazine Welt am Sonntag, July 29, 1973
Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organized to
serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes
more people sick than it heals.
Ivan Illich (medical historian), on Swiss television, Lugano,
The medical establishment has become the major threat to health.
Ivan Illich, in Limits to Medicine, 1976
A new U.S. study challenges claims made for the last 35 years
that women can prevent breast cancer by regularly taking estrogen
pills.... the report seems to indicate the drug actually may cause
the disease.... Physicians have been prescribing estrogen for an
estimated 5 million to 6 million middle-aged women in the United
International Herald Tribune, August 17, 1976
The oil lobby, perhaps the most powerful lobby on earth, is almost
matched by hospital owners and doctors.
- President Carter, June 8, 1979
The public is surely entitled to convincing proof, beyond all
reasonable doubt, that artificial immunization is in fact a safe
and effective procedure, in no way injurious to health, and that
the threat of the corresponding natural diseases remain sufficiently
clear and urgent to warrant mass inoculation of everyone, even against
their will if necessary. Unfortunately, such proof has never been
Richard Moskowitz, M.D., Journal of the American Institute of
Homeopathy, March 1983 (76:7)
Between 1962 and 1982, the numbers of people who contracted or
died of cancer both increased. Cancer deaths rose 8.7%... The bottom
line is that despite all the billions of dollars, and the promises
and the claims of success, more people are dying of cancer than
Dr. John C. Bailer III, biostatistician, Harvard University School
of Public Health. Co-author of Report on Cancer in the New England
Journal of Medicine, May 1986.
Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud,
and that the major cancer research organisations are derelict in
their duties to the people who support them.
Linus Pauling, Ph.D., two time Nobel Prize winner, in Outrage,
...the simple unadulterated truth is that they are neither winning
the fight against cancer nor are they about to find a cure. They
have been claiming that a cure is just around the corner for a good
50 years or more, but the sad fact remains that in spite of the
countless millions being collected, cancer in its most serious forms
- in the lung, breast and bowel - is no nearer to being beaten today
than it was at the turn of the century. Indeed, in some cases -
breast cancer for example - the exact opposite is true; the scientists
are actually losing the fight.
Cancer Control Society, Great Britain, in Outrage (magazine),
Economics and politics simply intertwine in shaping conventional
medicine's approach to cancer. Very simply put, treating disease
is enormously profitable, preventing disease is not.
The British Cancer Control Society, Outrage, Oct/Nov 1986
Vaccines are made from: mucus of infected children (whooping cough),
excrement from typhoid victims (typhoid), fermented chick embryos,
and until recently vaccines for polio were got from the diseased
kidneys of monkeys, and cause: leukemia, encephalitis, Multiple
Sclerosis - and: "Now I believe the smallpox-vaccine theory is the
explanation to the explosion of AIDS".
World Health Organization, advisor, Times 11.5.87
Vaccination is not necessary, not useful, does not protect. There
are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS.
Dr. med. Gerhard Buchwald, West Germany, specialist of internal
diseases and participant in about 150 trials of vaccination victims.
The use of Accutane, a Hoffman-LaRoche product, has caused hundreds
of defective births. The packages containing this drug will henceforth
have to display the picture of a malformed newborn.
Swiss State News on TV on May 30, 1988
Chemotherapy and radiotherapy will make the ancient method of
drilling holes in a patient's head to permit the escape of demons
look relatively advanced.... Toxic chemotherapy is a hoax. The doctors
who use it are guilty of pre-meditated murder, and the use of cobalt
and other methods of cancer treatment popular today effectively
closes the door on cure.
Ernst T. Krebs, Jr., a prominent biochemist from San Francisco,
co-discoverer of vitamin B-17 (commonly called 'Laetril' ), and
discoverer of vitamin B-15 (pangamic acid), speaking before a seminar

Before thirty, men seek disease; after thirty, disease seeks men.
The superior doctor prevents sickness;
The mediocre doctor attends to impending sickness;
The inferior doctor treats actual sickness;
