Thank you for fascinating and useful content. Thank you also for demonstrating what I admire and wish for in a trusted doctor. I believe many of us want a physician with broad perspective, deep humane concern, intellectual autonomy, scientific curiosity and rigor, and courageous commitment to supporting the health and autonomous self-care of every patient above conflicting interests.

Society is also sick, and we live in a messy real world. It is because of this, not in spite of it, that professional ideals exemplified and propounded by leaders are so important.

Signed, a Midwestern patient.

I just LOVE these history lessons. So many people could benefit from knowing this--the public has been so propagandized into thinking everything about vaccines is simple and straightforward.

"Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it" - no reason the practice of medicine should be immune from this, especially allopathic medicine, enamored as it is of the latest shiny molecule. Appreciate the lesson.

Pardon me if you've already referenced this document, but old as it is, given the author's stature, I find this document very interesting and thought you'd like to see it. It is by Alfred Russel Wallace about smallpox vaccinations being useless. One of the great scientific minds of his time, he speak out against vaccinations: https://archive.org/details/b2136140x_201805

I truly appreciate your writing. Bring on as much of it as you can. I'm not a doctor (ok, I'm an internet doctor lol), but covid has grabbed my attention like nothing else. As an engineer and IT data wrangler, it has been pretty obvious from the start something was wrong. And the explosion of cases and deaths (despite the 2 week free pass after each vax) whenever a country rolled a bigtime vax push, was clear as a bell. Thanks again.

Marvellous work, congratulations. I came across the concept of stagnant qi while conversing with a patient with fatty liver disease, who was otherwise healthy, no alcohol, no stress, no obesity. While I was please with the diagnosis, short of "drink more water," what does one do for blood stagnation?

You should reach out to Dr. Zelenko in New York of HCQ and Ivermectin infamy. In a recent interview, he spoke of researching pre-Rockefeller medicine to see what our current "medicine" has hidden from us and physicians. Of particular note related to this great post, he said he was saved from a terminal illness from a treatment that emphasized assisting the body's temperature to rise for an extended period to expel is disease. He was supposed to have been dead several years ago.

Dr. Zelenko has a powerful platform and a similar interest. We would all benefit from doctors such as you and Zelenko and Mercola and Tenpenny shedding light on true health and healing.

Thank you for taking the time to research and write (and edit) this. Respect!

Thank-you so much for this very valuable research. It is so easy for those with a vested interest to keep the false narrative going while society keeps getting sicker and the "powers that be" keep profiting off their misery. Thankfully there are some noble health care practitioners out there like yourself, who are trying to expose the deceptions and save lives ..... often at great cost to their careers and their own lives because the truth is very "inconvenient" to the official agenda. Godspeed in your work.

If homeopathy works, how come a glass of tap water doesn't cure every disease? Surely it has once been contaminated by some effective medicine in an inordinately small concentration?

What kind of water is used for dilution and how does the process work?

Up to now I've never taken the concept seriously, but I'm trying to understand.

Also a specific question: if one has psoriasis (skin flakes) and finds that topical vitamin D helps against itching and may even temporarily clear up rashes locally, is it a good idea to use it? From this article I understand maybe the skin MUST flake and show all the symptoms to get rid of toxin? Why then does it persist for years?

I think you need to re-visit your robber-Barron take. https://fee.org/articles/how-the-myth-of-the-robber-barons-began-and-why-it-persists/

This is so appreciated! Thank God there are a few people who can still think and review history.
