|This page will inform one
of the original goal of medicine and healing with reference to the great
physicians of all-time
Hippocrates was the Father of
Medicine. The Hippocratic Oath is an oath taken by all present day doctors
that get licensed:
Hippocrates: Let thy food be thy medicine and thy
medicine be thy food.
This statement by the Father of Medicine,
Hippocrates, was intended to be an eternal guide for doctors and healers in
their quests for answers to plaguing diseases. The protocol for present day
doctors is either chemo or radiation and variations thereof.
Scripture says: "The fruit thereof is for meat and the leaves for the
healing of the nations"
God cannot lie and it is here in the Bible
where he directs us on how to get well.
We can only reason that
primordial man, living close to nature in a wild state, must have observed
the habits and instincts of animals, and if so, he must have learned much
about the curative virtues of herbs because of the remarkable instinct of
present day animals who unquestionably know the herbs that heal them. From
the highest to the lowest crawling animal, they all seem to know their
remedies. Even the snake, the lowest and perhaps least intelligent of them,
knows his remedy. When he casts his skin, he goes blind, and in that
helpless condition he has often been seen to crawl to an old fallen tree of
a mossy bank. He rubs his sightless orbs in the moss, eats the rich juice,
and with that one herb he restores both his skin and his sight.
the little mongoose is stung while fighting venomous snakes in India, he
immediately leaves the fight, dashes into the jungle, and finds and herb,l
eats it, and rubs the poisoned part in its juices. Then he returns to kill
the snake and, according to the testimony of thousands of witnesses, no
mongoose has ever died of snake bite.
When hawks and carrion birds
peck at the eyes of young birds of another nest, and when the eyes have not
been totally destroyed, the mother of that nest has been seen to anoint her
babies' eyes with the juice of the leaves of the greater celandine herb,
Chelidonium majus. It has been recorded that the films and opacities have
been removed and the bird's eyes completely restored to sight.
are just three of thousands of incidences in nature denoting the marvelous
instinctual knowledge of animals in the selection of their remedies.
When a monkey is sick of a possible cancer, he is seen peeling off the fruit
of the peach down to the pit and cracking the pit open and devouring the
bitter seed inside, which is full of the nitriloside we call vitamin B17.
Similarly when a dog is sick he is seen eating the grasses that have high
contents of B17. The bears eat the vissula, high in B17, as well as hundreds
of other similar cases.

Indeed, it is positively certain that none of the
eminent new schools of the present day have been nearly as successful in
curing disease than were Hippocrates, Galen and Sydenham. Meantime, however,
there have arisen a bright galaxy of names - scholars, doctors etc. - as
ever adorned any age of the world, devoting themselves to the practice of
medicine, but who, fail to get the grand results anticipated. (present day
doctors) All their learning and their multitudinous writing have only served
to make confusion more confounded, and all because they have neglected to
follow the dictates of nature and plain common sense in maintaining the
herbal practice as the only true and philosophical foundation of the healing
