"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."
Oliver Wendell Holmes, M.D.
I have seen hospital patients allowed to go two weeks without a bowel movement. I have seen patients told that they have six months to live when they might live sixty months. I have seen people recover from serious illness, only to have their physician berate them for having used natural healing methods to do so. I have seen infants spit up formula while their mothers were advised not to breast feed. I've seen better ingredients in dog food than in the average school or hospital lunch.
And I have seen enough.
Don't bother looking in the history books for what has slaughtered the most Americans. Look instead at your dinner table. There's an old saying: "One fourth of what you eat keeps you alive. The other three-fourths keep your doctor alive." We eat too much of the wrong things and not enough of the right things. Scientific research continually indicates nationwide vitamin and mineral deficiencies in our country. We spend over two million million dollars (two trillion) each year on disease care in America. Is it any surprise that doctors consistently place among the very highest incomes?
"And we have made of ourselves living cesspools, and driven doctors to invent names for our diseases." Plato
Nearly two-thirds of a million men died in the Civil War. All other U.S. wars put together add about another two-thirds of a million soldiers killed. That means that about 1,300,000 Americans have died, totally, in all the wars in U.S. history. That is a lot of deaths.
Today, right now, we lose more than that number of Americans each year because of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
So always remember that disease is the real enemy.
About 10 million soldiers were killed in World War I, charging machine guns and getting mowed down month after month. There were nearly a third of a million killed at the battle of Verdun alone. A terrible slaughter went on for four years. Yet, in just the two years following the war, over 20 million people died from influenza. That is twice as many deaths from the flu in one-half the time it took the machine guns.
During the American Civil War, three times as many soldiers died from disease as from battle. Today, alcohol and tobacco kill nearly as many Americans in one year as the entire Civil War did in four.
Results are all that matter to me. Alternative medicine works. The natural treatment of illness can be accomplished safely, inexpensively, and effectively. We've all been taught that anything that is safe and inexpensive cannot possibly be really effective against "real diseases." It is time to rethink that, and especially to see for yourself what works.
I am an educator, not a physician. My work is not prescription, but rather description. I'd like for us to be free to utilize any reasonable health care approach. To decide, we need education far more than medication.
Each treatment regimen included here is not mine. I do not stay up late at night making all this up. These ideas are not original. They are generally not new, either. I have collected the safest and most effective healing approaches that I can find from physicians worldwide. I hope you find them to be as helpful as they have been for my family.
Natural healing is not about avoiding doctors. It is about not needing to go to doctors. A dentist is not upset if you are cavity-free. A doctor should not be upset if you are healthy.
The idea is to be well. The first step is wanting to be. The old Chinese saying is "When you are sick of sickness, you are no longer sick."
The second step is to do something to improve your health. Each of us is ultimately responsible for our own wellness. I think we should leave no stone unturned in our search for better health. I also believe that you get out of your body what you put into it. Your body will respond to your efforts to improve your health.
The time to start is right now. Another old saying: "If not now, when? If not here, where? If not you, then who?"
"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.
Reviews of DOCTOR YOURSELF.COM:
"DoctorYourself.com is fabulous and brilliant. Andrew Saul is educating us to
educate ourselves. He is taking this battle to Parliament
or wherever it has to go to change things within the medical establishment.
Andrew Saul is making a huge difference: he is out there in the vanguard of
the orthomolecular movement that is breaking down barriers and breaking down doors."
"I had been a practicing pediatric gastroenterologist for 25 years.
During that time I watched some really beautiful children and young men and
women die under my care because I had nothing more to offer, and
unfortunately what I had offered many times only made their lives
more miserable. Recent health problems led me to read about
Linus Pauling and orthomolecular medicine and it has been like
discovering an advanced ancient civilization that I had no idea
had ever existed. After reading Doctor Yourself by Dr. Andrew Saul,
I have become a very angry man. I've just realized that for 25 years
I had been making my patients sick and big pharma rich. I've just realized
that those chronic hepatitis patients that died waiting for a liver transplant
could have been easily cured with vitamin C. I realize now that my
toximolecular medical education only led me to do more harm than good.
That is not a good feeling to have. I only wish that all my
critically ill patients had read Dr. Saul's book and fired their doctor.
in fact has inspired me to now open an exclusive
orthomolecular medicine practice for children and adults of all ages,
and copies of the book will be in the waiting room for all to read.
In the names of all those I didn't help before, I hope this time to
make a difference."
"Andrew Saul is a brilliant speaker and writer. His DoctorYourself.com website has
an enormous amount of very important information dealing with the use of nutrition
in the treatment of mental and physical disease. It is one of the very best I have seen.
Thank you, Dr. Saul, for making this information more available and thus promoting
the development of the medicine of the 21st century, Orthomolecular Medicine."
"I am always impressed how very well you do in films, your excellent
choice of words to put your thoughts across. You are a masterful speaker!
This was again confirmed when I watched the new movie from
"Andrew Saul believes that education beats medication, and educate he does."
"You were absolutely magnificent in the Food Matters movie.
I just loved your presence."
"My nutrition professor, Andrew Saul, was someone my classmates and I
thought to be quite the 'radical thinker' at the time. Week after week,
month after month, he espoused the value of living foods in helping
the body to heal itself from physical illness, mental disease and
even addiction. Dr. Saul taught us to treat the whole body -
not just the symptoms - to prevent and reverse disease, and to do this
by eating fresh organic fruits and vegetables, as well as
their juices, whole, sprouted grains, and raw nuts and seeds -
living foods that exist in nature and have a profund healing effect
on every cell in the body. He presented double-blind placebo-controlled studies
on various nutrients as well as his own case studies, proving that
eating foods in their natural state - unaltered by cooking, processing,
preservatives, chemical fertilizers, fungicides, pesticides,
or genetic modification - does indeed provide the body with all the
essential vitamins, minerals, live enzymes, and phytochemicals
- everything it needs to prevent and fight off disease and create vitality."
"Andrew Saul has a sharp clear mind, a dry sense of humor, and low-key
brilliance shining through. This is combined with a heart and intent that is
always in the right place."
"Modern medicine's narrow approach, to treat every disease as if it were a
drug deficiency, has resulted in a steep price for humanity. It is obvious
millions have died prematurely since vitamin C was first discovered
over 80 years ago. Brave and resolute men and women, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi,
Irwin Stone, Linus Pauling, Ewan Cameron, Emil Ginter, Matthias Rath,
Andrew Saul, Tom Levy, Steve Hickey, Raxit Jariwalla, John T. Ely,
Hilary Roberts, and others promoted the idea of vitamin C therapy but
were readily dismissed, even belittled."
Producer/directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, when asked,
"Who are your heroes? Are there people you look up to and learn from?" answered:
"I send my patients to your website. Your work is excellent."
"DoctorYourself.com is an excellent self-health website."
"Andrew Saul is a terrific speaker. I have heard him lecture, and
always walk away feeling inspired."
"Good on you! That is how you would be complimented here in
New Zealand for your website. I strongly agree with what you are doing.
And the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine is definitely a
good read, in my opinion."
"Your work in the health care field is magnificent and courageous. I offer you my
"If you would enjoy access to a huge library of health-related
articles with an orthomolecular approach, on a website made by
a man with an outrageous sense of humor, try DoctorYourself.com."
"Practical tips from an excellent advocate of nutritional therapy.
Visit DoctorYourself.com for access to a vast amount of information
on vitamins and other self-healing resources. The site has abundant
evidence, especially, of the high value and healing power of vitamin
C and helpful hints about how to get what you need."
"I love Andrew Saul's book Doctor Yourself!
The man is pretty freakin' groovy too. He and his book are wonderful and
super clever, as well as funny and witty. This is a great book for
laypersons and doctors alike. I would recommend him to patients:
a fantastic website and tool to find out much info about
your health: www.doctoryourself.com." (Canadian College of
Naturopathic Medicine student, and now Dr. Amandha Vollmer)
"We are very pleased to learn of the Doctor Yourself website,
Newsletter, and the consumer information they provide.
Dr. Andrew Saul provides holistic information on a variety of health topics
and conditions. You'll find everything from healthy eating to exercising."
"We very much appreciate what you are doing at your website, and especially like your autobiography."
"Dr. Andrew Saul has a web site that is must-reading for anyone seriously interested in health and doubtful about the efficacy of conventional medicine. If you are as impressed as I am with the wealth of health information presented, you can subscribe to Dr. Saul's free newsletter."
"If I were president, my Surgeon General would not be a surgeon.
I'd want someone like Doc Saul to be the man. I'll bet if Doc Saul
was the Surgeon General, we would soon see Medline stop
ignoring research from orthomolecular medicine."
"The National Library of Medicine refuses to index the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, though it is peer-reviewed and seems to meet their criteria." (Psychology Today, Nov-Dec 2006)
