Why Don't Doctors Know This?

Dr. A. V. Constantini of the World Health Organization stated that, "Fungal infections are the most overlooked medical problem in the world." Yet, if you ask your doctor if he or she took a class on Mycology (the study of fungi) in medical school they would probably say, NO! Most American medical schools removed these classes from the curriculum in the 1970s, probably at the suggestion, or insistence, of the high and mighty pharmaceutical companies.

According to Dr. Constantini and others, fungal infections are the underlying cause of many, even most, debilitating diseases. In the 40s, 50s, and 60s, Mycology textbooks were even written by MDs. They made similar broad statements in these textbooks.

More recently, Mayo Clinic found in a study they did on sinusitis (specifically the inflammation of the sinuses but commonly referred to as nasal congestion) that 96% of all sinusitis is fungal related. However, if you were suffering from sinusitis today, chances are your family physician would prescribe an antibiotic.

For those of you who do not know, antibiotics are mycotoxins (toxins produced and released by fungi). Remember penicillin? In 1928 penicillin, the first true antibiotic, was discovered by Alexander Fleming, Professor of Bacteriology at St. Mary's Hospital in London. He extracted it from mold (a fungi) that was growing on bread.

One major problem with antibiotics is that they kill probiotics. Probiotics are the "good bacteria" that populate your small intestine. They carry out a multitude of functions not the least of which is the production of Vitamin B12 and keeping Candida albicans (a one-celled fungi) from proliferating. Once in the bloodstream, Candida albicans becomes systemic and begins to invade other organs and organ systems. Many experts say that this unchecked proliferation is the underlying cause of many otherwise, seemingly unrelated, diseases.

In a televised interview, Lynn Jennings, M.D., from Wichita Falls, Texas was asked how many of her new patients she thought had fungal infections. Her answer, 

"All of them!"

It surprised me when I realized fungal infections played such a large part in the disease process. It surprised me even more when I realized that doctors were not even given a Mycology class in medical school. Dr. Jennings stated that her instruction on mycology was limited to a few lectures in Microbiology class.

An article in the October 2002 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association written by Ruth Edsell stated that corn is universally contaminated with Candida albicans. Candida albicans produces the mycotoxin, aflatoxin B1, a known carcinogen. It is known to cause, or at least be associated with, colon cancer.

Now you know why your doctor doesn't know this.

Emphysema/COPD and Conventional Medicine

I have been taking care of my mother who was diagnosed with emphysema almost 5 years ago. Her general practice physician and her pulmonary specialist started her on the usual emphysema medications and treatments and she began to deteriorate almost immediately. Her weight dropped from 103 lbs to 77 lbs and she went from not needing any supplemental oxygen at the time of her diagnosis to requiring 4 liters of continuous oxygen not to mention ending up nearly bedridden, only leaving her room for 15 to 20 minutes each day.

I researched for almost 4 years all night, every night so I could check on her regularly throughout the night and make sure she didn't stop breathing. After over 6500 hours of research, I realized what the etiology of the disease emphysema actually was and why it continues to get worse long after the patient stops smoking. I then realized why the drugs they currently prescribe for emphysema not only fail to cure the disease or reverse any of the symptoms, they actually make the patient worse.

Once I realized why the medications the doctors were prescribing made her worse I began to understand what had to be done to reverse this debilitating disease and immediately applied these principles to my mother’s daily regimen. She began to improve almost immediately. Within 3.5 to 4 months she gained 22 lbs of the 26 pounds she had lost over the previous 4+ years and was able to reduce her oxygen from 4 liters of continuous oxygen to only 2 liters. At present, she only requires supplemental oxygen some of the time. She is now able to go 18 hours at a time without any supplemental oxygen and even sleeps without any oxygen some of the time, something she has not been able to do for over 4 years.

I wrote a book outlining her struggles and ongoing recovery from this debilitating disease after being told by everyone I asked in the medical field that it was terminal. At this point you probably know what I think, NO IT ISN'T!
