If you are like the average American, you have led a life filled
with Western medical policies, procedures, drugs and quick-fixes. As
one of the biggest businesses in the United States, modern medicine
may be costing you more than just a high insurance premium each
According to Harvey Bigelsen, M.D., author of
Doctors Are More
Harmful Than Germs: How Surgery Can Be Hazardous to Your Health And
What to Do About It, these practices could be costing you your
natural right to a high quality of life.
Starting by comparing common surgical incisions to being assaulted
and stabbed during a robbery, this book brings common sense to light
in an easy-to-understand way.
Being stabbed and being surgically opened both cause your body
physical harm, inflammation, and have lasting effects on the body.
While your mind may realize the benefits of a
the book explains in detail how the body recognizes only injury.
When money comes before your health
Within the pages, Bigelsen tackles the challenging question of why
modern medicine is accepting of so many detrimental procedures, and
how it has started to focus on symptoms instead of the big picture
With less respect for the body in each passing year, Bigelsen
approaches the topic of how the medical community is becoming
corrupt, pairing up with big businesses, and has led to the creation
of a multi-million dollar pharmaceutical industry.
Within the first few chapters, you will find a detailed look on how
this practice leads to doctors making biased choices, placing money
and capitalism before a patient's health.
According to Bigelsen,
"Doctors had become paid spokes-people for
the drug companies, the medical device manufacturers, and the
disease organizations. The lines between academics and industry
blurred when it came to funding research and development.
are no longer certain who holds the purse strings; we only know that
when an opinion is offered, it is almost certainly biased."
Biological medicine, and how it can help you
Explaining how he views the human body as an intelligent being,
Bigelsen focuses his practice and teachings on what is known as
This version of medicine looks at the
emotional and physical experiences of the body in relation to
health, and takes the appropriate steps to heal the problem rather
than treat symptoms as they come.
During his research, Bigelsen has noticed that most illnesses can be
traced back to chronic inflammation in the body, preventing
circulation and the natural healing process.
Today's medical practices, such as surgeries and exposure to
radiation, combined with overuse of prescription drugs, have left
the average person working at only 50 percent of their natural
From routine surgeries to dental procedures, this book brings
awareness to how widely accepted mutilation of the body is, and how
the modern medical community refuses to acknowledge it as
detrimental to human existence.
Furthering the topic of common dentistry, Bigelsen remarks on how
many dental tools, plastic fillings and dental sealants can contain
bisphenol A, more commonly known as BPA. Commonly found in
water bottles, this dangerous chemical has gained more media
attention recently for being a toxic substance.
Throughout the book, Dr. Bigelsen stresses how the body is connected
in all ways, from the physical aspects to the emotional.

Dr. Bigelsen is able to treat patients with otherwise untreatable
conditions, recognizing that disease comes from inflammation in the
body that is chronic or trapped by things such as injuries,
infections and surgical procedures.
Treating the symptoms and not the problems
In the pages of his book, Bigelsen takes you through case after case
of modern medical misdiagnosis resulting from other injuries within
By releasing this inflammation and allowing the body to
heal, Bigelsen has successfully healed conditions such as,
...and much more.
Looking past the diagnosis of symptoms, this book teaches the
concept of health as not being defined by illness, but instead by
actual health. Viewing every person as an individual with a body
made up of intelligent cells, the healing process can be created
uniquely for each person.
Reading through the pages of Bigelsen's book reveals a powerful
message for the "sheeple" of today's society.
Bringing common sense
into the light once more, this book is truly an asset to the medical
community, as well as any person looking to improve their health.
