Volumke 1:
This book is dedicated to the memory of all those medical doctors who, since history has been recorded, have contributed to the progress of the science and art of medicine. Medical Mavericks are practitioners who did not follow conventional paths. Instead they chose to go where there is no path and leave a trail. This is not an easy journey. Schopenhauers made the observation that new thought and new truth most often go through three stages. First they are ridiculed. Next they are violently opposed. Then, finally they are accepted as being self-evident. Medical Mavericks Volume One chronicles the tales of 18 different practitioners who were mavericks in their thinking.

Volume 2:
This book could just as accurately have been titled „One person can make a difference“ or „Burn him at the stake and use damp straw.“ Often reviled by their contemporaries but revered by subsequent generations, these medical mavericks blazed the trail of scientific progress. These tales of discovery, personal hardship, court intrigues and hardball professional rivalry make for fascinating reading. This is the perfect book for medical professionals, history buffs, and anyone who just wants to be entertained with incredible anecdotes about pioneers in the fields of medicine. Medical Mavericks will raise the eyebrows of most, make others chuckle and bring a sense of relief to contemporary mavericks, who can take comfort in the thought that at least they aren’t being burned at the stake.

Amazon Zitat:

„Book one in this series is a fascinating read. It reminds us how slow the medical profession is to accept new ideas, even when the evidence for them is overwhelming. There is so much more going on than unbiased and logical analysis of the evidence.The idea that the medical profession has no vested interests but the best patient care is not just called into question but proved to be not the case again and again over many hundreds of years by the information in this book.Many case studies and examples given are quite shocking – for example how long it took doctors to agree to wash their hands before delivering babies, and how the doctor that first identified this problem and pushed for handwashing was ridiculed and suffered a huge blow to his standing and career. New information in the medical field is rarely received well, as this book explains.Doctors unwillingness to admit they were wrong is a huge problem and this affects individual doctors as well as the profession as a whole. There is also the issue of financial liability for doctors and medical organisations as well. When does the medical profession ever admit it is wrong? They almost never do. Yet the medical profession has a high degree of public trust.We need to be aware that much of what is promoted as `absolute medical fact‘ today has already been utterly disproven. Yet it persists and will do for many years to come due to vested financial interests involved in medicine as well as how slow medicine is to accept new ideas. We should not assume that the mainsteam medical information we are given is based on logic. Often this is not the case.We should also not assume that following what is accepted as best practice in mainstream medicine will give us the best health outcomes. At best the information may be decades behind the latest research and especially when it comes to anything not closely aligned with drug company profits.

This book is about independent individuals who have followed the advice found in this anonymous quotation:

„Do not follow where,
The path may lead.
Go instead where
There is no path,
And leave a trail.“

It’s a madddening but enlightening read.

Dr Riordan was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin Medical School, and had practiced clinical medicine for nearly 50 years. He is also quite a medical trailblazer himself as the book `Pyramid on the Praerie‘ explains. He has done a great job with this book and I recommend it, along with the other two books in the series. The myth of the lack of bias in the medical profession has to die! There is bias, and it is large.Thank goodness for all those real medical pioneers out there.“

Amazon:

„This book tells the fascinating story of the life of Dr. Max Gerson who developed a successful dietary-based therapy for the cure of degenerative diseases, particularly cancer. Written by Gerson’s grandson, it presents a personal yet objective portrait of a unique personality who has been called „one of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine“ by none other than Nobel Laureate Albert Schweitzer. And yet, due to the accidents of history and deliberate suppression of his work by the medical establishment, Gerson is today not well known outside the small but growing community of alternative medicine.
The book is very well written and tells an engaging story about a subject that could easily be deathly dull or sugared with personal family recollections. To the contrary, it is a crisp, fast-moving, narrative that slows down in only a few places where lengthy sources, including some of Gerson’s writings, are quoted.
The book covers two parallel stories: First, the life of Gerson, and second, the step-by step discovery of the pieces of the therapy that bear his name.
Gerson was born in Germany (now Poland) in 1881, the son of well-to-do Jewish parents. He was the product of the world-renowned German medical universities who began his practice as a neurologist. The book portrays a reserved, sometimes shy, proud man whose intolerance for foolish and petty behavior in others often earned him a reputation for arrogance and the enmity of many colleagues. Gerson is also portrayed as an absent-minded professor of medicine who leaves the details of finances and the care of the home to his wife. His complete energy and the focus of his life was directed toward the curing of his patients.
The most interesting part of the book is reading how Gerson discovered each aspect of his therapy over a period of thirty to forty years. The story begins with the curing of his own severe migraine headaches through diet modification. Over his working career Gerson modified and perfected his therapy to embrace a widening collection of chronic degenerative diseases. He seems to have been a master of observation, a keen analyst of the works of others, and a medical pragmatist and improviser. The bottom line was that he cured diseases in patients who had been given up by conventional medicine.
Gerson’s life was not easy, and his amazing accomplishments must be measured against the barriers erected in his path. First, his life and medical practice was totally disrupted by the anti-Semitic policies of the Nazi party. He and his family fled in turn Germany, Austria, and France before settling in New York in 1936. There, in spite of his remarkable successes, the US medical establishment closed nearly all doors for Gerson to promote his ideas, to practice, and to publish his findings. One gets the feeling that the story is much worse than presented in the book, and that there existed a well-organized conspiracy within the medical industry to suppress Gerson’s work. It seems that the author is holding back from making overt accusations that seem plain to the reader based on the facts presented.
By way of qualification, the reviewer is a cured cancer patient thanks to the Gerson therapy. So the book was especially relevant and exciting for me. But I believe that anyone interested in alternative medicine and healthy living will thoroughly enjoy this book. It adds to the growing body of literature describing Gerson’s therapy, most notably Gerson „50 Cases“ and Charlotte Gerson’s „The Gerson Therapy“. In summary, this book is good reading and the engaging history of a great man.“

Rüdiger Dahlke: Das Geheimnis der Lebensenergie

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFsH5cYHbEE

Dr. Ruediger Dahlke im Gespräch mit Michael Friedrich Vogt beim 2. Quer-Denken.TV-Kongreß. Laut Schöpfungsgeschichte gelten wir Menschen von Anfang an als Unheil und als nicht gesund im klassischen Sinne, nach dem wir aus dem Paradies verschwunden sind. Erstaunlicherweise sieht das die Gesundheitsdefinition der WHO fast genauso, denn sie definiert einen gesunden Menschen als die Abwesenheit von allem körperlichen, seelischen und materiellen Leid. Es ist etwas, was auf dieser Welt ein Idealzustand ist. Gesundheit scheint es nach dieser Definition nur im Anatomiebuch, aber nicht im wirklichen Leben zu geben.

Ruediger Dahlke weist darauf hin, daß im alten Sprachgebrauch das Thema Krankheit in der Begrifflichkeit mit dem Begriff Sucht verbunden wurde. Ein ganzes Bündel von Krankheiten wurde als Sucht bezeichnet. Dies erscheint ihm wichtig um aufzuzeigen, auf welchen Weg wir sind. Sucht war etwas Lautmalendes. Die sich erklärende Medizin verfällt heutzutage jedoch immer mehr. In der modernen Gesellschaft existiert eine zunehmende akademisierte Medizin, sprich, die Tendenz gleitet immer mehr in fachsprachliche Begrifflichkeiten über. Krankheiten werden mit Tabletten behandelt. Die Tendenz in der Medizin ist in eine Richtung gegangen, die sich weg von der Suche bewegt. Wenn der Mensch auf der Suche nach seinem Sinn ist, hat er die Chance, glücklich und gesund zu sein. Dies entspricht jedoch nicht mehr dem Interesse der modernen Medizin. Ihr geht es nur noch darum, aus allem Geld zu machen.

Medizin war früher dafür da, Menschen zurück in die Mitte zu bringen. Meditation und Medizin sind demnach eng verbunden. Heute bewirkt Medizin genau das Gegenteil. Medizin bringt den Menschen raus aus seiner Mitte. Ruediger Dahlke plädiert dafür, sich von diesem System der heutigen Medizin zu verabschieden und wieder zurück zur Mitte zu finden.

Sein Standpunkt: Es gibt in der Medizin kaum Interesse an Gesundheit, weil Gesundheit nichts bringt, damit läßt sich kein Geld verdienen. Es gilt sicherlich nicht für jeden Arzt, aber in diesem System ist nur von Wert, was materiell ist, was man mit einer Ziffer beschreiben kann. Eine „sprechende“ erklärende Medizin ist nicht gefragt, da es Zeit kostet und nicht registrierbar bzw. abrechenbar ist.

In seinem Buch „Krankheit als Symbol“ beschreibt Ruediger Dahlke, wie die körperliche und seelische Ebene zusammenhängen. Er verdeutlicht, daß sich in vielen Krankheiten die Probleme der Gesellschaft widerspiegeln. So gibt es Brückenschlag von der Medizin zu gesellschaftlichen Themen. Das kann man sich sehr genau anschauen: So haben wir das Wachstum der Bevölkerung auf der Ebene der Gesellschaft. Dem entgegen steht das Wachstum auf der körperlichen, materiellen Ebene: Krebs ist die zweithäufigste Todesursache. Krebs ist demnach ein Symbol für die gesellschaftliche Tendenz. Es gibt dafür keine medizinische Indikation. Vielmehr will uns die Krankheit – jede Krankheit – etwas zeigen.

Ist man in der Lage, diesen Hinweis zu interpretieren, gelangt man zur Heilung. Sein Anliegen ist demnach, eine uralte Tendenz der Medizin wiederzubeleben: Die Interpretation der Symptome & Ursachenforschung um dadurch bis zu wirklicher Heilung vorzustoßen. Heutzutage, so Ruediger Dahlke, wird nicht mehr mutig gelebt; alles wird mit Tabletten unterdrückt, eine richtige Auseinandersetzung und Streitkultur existiert nicht mehr. Doch so entstehen Krankheiten. Auch entstehen durch falsche Ernährung (z.B. Tiernahrung) Krankheiten.

Why some Physicians hate alternative Medicine

Why some Physicians hate alternative Medicine

http://www.bod.de/buch/volker-h–schendel/why-some-physicians-hate-alternative-medicine/9783741298912.html

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/12/30/rethinking-medical-associations-best-interests.aspx

„The medical profession has a long history of opposing alternative healing professions.While always claiming public safety as its reason for the attacks, the true reasons often involve protecting their monopoly of the healthcare market.Medicine’s opposition to chiropractic was its strongest under the leadership of Morris Fishbein, Secretary of the American Medical Association from 1924 to 1949, who led a 50-year anti-chiropractic campaign in both professional publications and the public media.“

http://www.insidershealth.com/people-hate-alternative-medicine/

If you’ve paid attention to “national trends” lately, you may have noticed an increasing public interest in natural or alternative medicine, and chiropractic. At the same time, you may have noticed doctors scoffing at you when you try to bring up any alternative medicine you want to try. The medical industry has always opposed these natural health alternatives, but why? Seeing a naturopath or chiropractor might be less costly than visiting a hospital, and might take care of your health problems while using a minimal amount of drugs . . . so why would the medical professionals who claim to care about your personal well being oppose these alternate routes? If you were to ask a doctor why they are against medical alternatives and natural medicine, they may reply with one of three answers: concern over the patient’s quality of care, the patient’s overall safety, and the quality of the medical practitioner’s education.
The REAL Reasons
The unfortunate truth is that these doctors, and the professional medical industry as a whole, have an entirely different reason and a hidden agenda with ulterior motives. Surprisingly, the organizations opposing natural medicine have been rather bold from the beginning, publically stating their opposition to alternate medicine. Since the early 1920’s, the American Medical Association has tried with all its might to completely shut down and extinguish naturopathic and osteopathic physicians, as well as chiropractors.
The real reason behind this passionate opposition is a common source of conflict: money. The American Medical Association, or AMA, has tons of it. But by allowing these natural medicine practitioners to gain more patients, they realize that their bottom line profit will ultimately begin to dwindle as more and more people choose to go the natural route. It’s not just the AMA who is trying to monopolize medicine either. Other well-known organizations and trusted organizations who are also against natural medicine and are actually working together with the AMA include the American Dental Association, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Psychiatric Association.
Luckily, federal courts have repeatedly found the AMA, as well as the other organizations, guilty of seeking to create a healthcare monopoly. More specifically, these are the actions the organizations were guilty of:

Systematic defamation of naturopathic, chiropractic and osteopathic physicians.
Forcing doctors to refuse collaboration with these alternative physicians.
Publishing and distribution of propaganda specifically intended to ruin alternate healthcare professionals’ reputations.
Denying hospital access to alternative physicians.

While these charges temporarily stopped any progress in the AMA’s plans to eliminate the competition, it didn’t last long. As recently as 2010, the American Medical Association changed the definition of a physician to “The AMA affirms that a physician is an individual who has received a ‘Doctor of Medicine’ or a ‘Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine’ degree,” which immediately compromised the legitimacy of any physician who did not receive an MD or a DO, such as a naturopath or a chiropractor.

„…. It reminds us how slow the medical profession is to accept new ideas, even when the evidence for them is overwhelming. There is so much more going on than unbiased and logical analysis of the evidence.The idea that the medical profession has no vested interests but the best patient care is not just called into question but proved to be not the case again and again over many hundreds of years by the information in this book.Many case studies and examples given are quite shocking – for example how long it took doctors to agree to wash their hands before delivering babies, and how the doctor that first identified this problem and pushed for handwashing was ridiculed and suffered a huge blow to his standing and career.

The Top 15 Lies You’re Being Told About Health and Mainstream Medicine

http://preventdisease.com/news/14/073014_Top-15-Lies-Youre-Being-Told-About-Health-Nutrition-Medicine.shtml

„Do you ever question what doctors, nutritionists, institutions and even science tells you about your health, food, environment and lifestyle? You should, because we live in an era of deception and duplicity where the most trusted and valued sources of information are hijacked by much bigger interests than you can imagine. The internet is one of the last frontiers for truth, informing and educating billions on why our systems of health, agriculture, medicine and many other areas we depend on are failing us. The reason they’re failing us is because corrupt governments, corporations and the media are constantly feeding us lies on a daily basis, which through repetition, the public eventually accepts as truth. “

The 10 biggest health care lies in America

„Mainstream health care isn’t based on „health“ or „caring.“ It’s actually based on an ingrained system of medical mythology that’s practiced — and defended — by those who profit from the continuation of sickness and disease. This system of medical mythology might also simply be called „lies“, and today I’m sharing with NaturalNews readers the top ten lies that are still followed and promoted under mainstream health care in America today….When it comes to western health care, there are more than 10 lies, of course, but these big 10 lies are perhaps the most relevant to your own health decisions. By avoiding being suckered in by these lies, you can take charge of your own health and avoid the health care scam by staying healthy!Staying healthy isn’t as difficult as you think, and it doesn’t require health insurance or disease screening. It only requires making informed, intelligent decisions about what to eat, what to put on your skin and how to get more sunshine and physical exercise. Once you do these basic things, you’ll find that you are no longer held victim by a western medicine health care system based on lies and outdated medical mythology.
It’s time for a revolution in medicine… A revolution that finally advances past the mental roadblock of a system of medical mythology stuck in the 1940’s. Don’t get me wrong, 1940’s medicine was great in the 1940’s. But this is no longer the 1940’s, and the germ theory of disease is hopelessly outdated when it comes to the primary diseases that are striking the population today. Yet the profiteers of our dishonest, outmoded health care system are doing everything in their power to keep us all stranded in the past, a past based on treating the body like a chemical battleground and attacking every disease with a patented pharmaceutical.That whole approach to health care is so far outdated that it’s hilarious it can still be pushed with a straight face. No wonder doctors only spend an average of two minutes with patients these days. That’s the limit of how long they can hold their faces without breaking out in laughter at how stupid this whole „treat the symptoms and forget the causes“ approach to health care really is. Even they know it! That’s why most doctors actually eat superfoods and take vitamins themselves, even if they never dare suggest it to patients.True fact: It is illegal in every U.S. state for a doctor to recommend any vitamin, nutrient or food for the prevention or treatment of any disease. Doing so can cause a doctor to have his medical license permanently revoked. How crazy and outdated is that?……………“
