The Ministry of the Twelve   Matthew 10:7-9
"And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.''

 

 

Types of Healing

1. Allopathic Medicine: drugs, surgery, radiation.

 

2. Homeopathic Medicine: homeopathic (highly diluted) formulas of inorganic chemicals or plant substances.

 

3. Herbal Medicine: herbs are used to act on the body like drugs, the only difference being that they are plant substances and not chemicals.

 

4. Hygiene, Hygieotherapy, Natural Healing, Nature Cure, Naturopathy: diet, lifestyle adjustment, stress management, fasting, vitamins, minerals, hormones and herbs are used to detoxify and nourish you back to health. Jesus, as witnessed by John, healed using natural means i.e. fasting and prayer or diet modification and the relieving of stress through faith in God.

 

The first hygienist teacher in America was Sylvester Graham, who fortunately was not inculcated as a Medical Doctor as to the cause of disease, and seeing their failure, sought a better way.

 

In 1840 he concluded, "When with an honest and earnest heart, I looked steadily to Nature for illumination, and with the guilelessness of a little child, give men the truth, she poured out clear and discriminating light into my soul."

 

He was joined by Mary Gove, another empirical healer as a teacher of hygiene, who helped to let patients heal themselves by the body’s self healing nature.

 

As to Dr. Jennings, he might have gotten his clues to letting the body heal itself, from Stahl in the 17th century, who argued with considerable ability that the body had its own remedial powers, in a tradition claimed original with Hippocrates, labelled, "vix medicatrix naturae."

 

Thus, by the added labors of Dr. Jennings, beside Dr. Trall, who joined Graham, the movement flourished.

 

Beginning with Graham’s "Journal of Health and Longevity" and Dr. R.T. Trall’s "Water Cure Journal", in name only since what it taught was Hygiene, with a circulation of 18,000 in 1850,

 

Shelton says: "So vigorous was Hygiene promulgated and so great the enthusiasm with which the people accepted it, it was estimated in January 1852 that the practitioners of the two and somewhat co-mingled schools,- Hydropathy and Hygeiotherapy,- outnumbered the practitioners of any of the medical schools, allopathic, homeopathic, eclectic and physio-medical, in this country.

 

Whereever the Journal circulated there was invariably an improvement in Hygienic habits of the people and a corresponding decrease in fatal cases of disease and an immense saving to the people."

 

This excerpt is from the book Vitalogical Hygiene (kindle) and Paperback

 

''The American Medical Association, organized in New York in 1848, advanced two seemingly innocent propositions in its early days: that all doctors should have a “suitable education” and that a “uniform elevated standard of requirements for the degree of M.D. should be adopted by all medical schools in the U.S.”

 

These were part of the AMA’s real program, which was openly discussed at its conventions and in the medical journals: to secure a government-enforced medical monopoly and high incomes for mainstream doctors.

 

Membership in the new organization was open only to “regular” physicians, whose therapies were based on the “best system of physiology and pathology, as taught in the best schools in Europe and America.”

 

The public had a different view, however. Official treatments of the time, such as bloodletting and mercury poisoning, harmed and sometimes murdered patients, causing mass outrage.''

 

''Regular'' meant orthodox or allopathic medicine based on drugs and surgery.

 

Thus, just like the ''Orthodox'' (meaning right or correct) Roman christian religion was organized in the 4th century A.D. by the emperor Constantine resulting in the elimination of all competing faiths like the Essenes, Therapeuts and Gnostics, so was medicine organized into an ''Orthodox'' institution excluding all competitors in 1848.

 

The competitors at the time were much more popular than regular allopathic medicine and the most popular at the time was hygiene which used natural dietetics, fasting, water baths, mud baths and sun baths.

 

 

 

Cancer Cures: More Deadly Than Disease

By Dr. Hardin Jones                                                Physiologist with the University of California                       Dept. of Medical Physics

 

"My studies have proved conclusively that untreated cancer victims actually live up to four times longer than treated individuals."

 

''Furthermore, untreated breast cancer, cases show a life expectancy four times longer than treated ones.''

 

''Chemotherapy, radiation or surgery to treat cancer  causes much more harm than good, instead use nutrition and detoxification to strenghthen your natural immune system.'' Dr. Hardin Jones

 

Treatment for cancer will kill you a lot sooner than if, nothing were done at all, claims a prominent cancer researcher.

 

"My studies have proved conclusively that untreated cancer victims actually live up to four times longer than treated individuals," Dr. Hardin B. Jones told MIDNIGHT.

 

"For a typical type of cancer, people who refused treatment lived for an average of 12 1/2 years. Those who, accepted surgery and other kinds of treatment lived an average of only three years!

 

"Beyond a shadow of a doubt, radical surgery on cancer patients does more harm than good." (note: This means radical mastectomies do more harm than good. Good nutrition and lifestyle can overcome genetic predispositions to cancer.)

 

As for radiation treatment "Most of the time it makes not the slightest difference whether the machine is turned on or not."

 

Dr. Jones, a physiologist with the University of California Dept. of Medical Physics, has been studying cancer for more than 23 years.

 

He has traveled the world collecting data on the dreaded disease, and presented his findings to the American Cancer Society and medical schools.

 

Asked why 'the medical world has ignored his findings, he replied: "Frankly, I don't know the reasons. But they have probably become caught up in the tidal wave of individuals demanding treatment."

 

This has been shown especially in the type of bone cancer - osteogenic sarcoma - that affects the large knee joints, Dr. Jones said.

 

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's son, Ted Jr., suffered from that disease and his affected leg was amputated.

 

A surgeon is tempted to amputate, just for the relief of pain, Dr. Jones noted. "But, unfortunately, it seems to be only a question of time, usually, before the disease pops up again all over the body.

 

"I attribute this to the traumatic effect of surgery on the body's natural defense mechanisms," he said.

 

The body has a natural defense against every type of cancer, Dr. Jones maintained.

 

"Medical treatment seems to interfere with and mess up this natural resistance," he said.

 

"You see, it is not the cancer that kills the victim. It's the breakdown of the defense mechanism that eventually brings death."

 

Dr. Jones said he advocates less surgery and chemotherapy.

 

And he pooh-poohs what he said were claims by the medical profession of certain "cancer cures."

 

The fact remains, said Dr. Jones, that just as many people die today from cancer as they did in the year 1900. The mortality rate hasn't changed much.

 

"With every cancer patient who keeps in excellent physical shape and boosts his health to build up his natural resistance, there's a high chance the body will find its own defense against the cancer," he said.

 

"He may have many good years left in good health. He shouldn't squander them by being made into a hopeless invalid through radical medical intervention, which has zero chance of extending his life."

 

Dr. Jones agreed that lumps in the breasts should be checked out.

 

"But it's utter nonsense to claim that catching cancer symptoms early enough will increase the patient's chances of survival," he said.

 

"Not one medical scientist or study has proven that so in any way."

 

Furthermore, untreated breast cancer, cases show a life expectancy four times longer than treated ones, he averred.

 

"My wife and I have discussed what she would do if breast cancer was diagnosed in her," Dr. Jones continued.

 

"And we both agree she would do nothing as regards treatment, except to keep as healthy as possible.

 

"I guarantee she would live longer!

 

"For not only does radical surgery or chemotherapy do nothing to prolong a cancer victim's life, but that same victim will, in most cases, live a lot longer if he or she refuses, treatment."

THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES

IS BY FAR AND AWAY MEDICAL TREATMENT

ACCORDING TO THE FOLLOWING STUDY:

 

ABSTRACT:

A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good.

 

The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million.

 

Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics.

 

The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million.

 

The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million.

 

The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936.

Condition Deaths Cost Author
Adverse Drug Reactions 106,000 $12 billion Lazarou1 Suh49
Medical error 98,000 $2 billion IOM6
Bedsores 115,000 $55 billion Xakellis7 Barczak8
Infection 88,000 $5 billion Weinstein9 MMWR10
Malnutrition 108,800 Nurses Coalition11
Outpatients 199,000 $77 billion Starfield12 Weingart112
Unnecessary Procedures 37,136 $122 billion HCUP3,13
Surgery-Related 32,000 $9 billion AHRQ85
TOTAL 783,936 $282 billion  

We could have an even higher death rate by using Dr. Lucien Leape's 1997 medical and drug error rate of 3 million. Multiplied by the fatality rate of 14% (that Leape used in 1994 we arrive at an annual death rate of 420,000 for drug errors and medical errors combined. If we put this number in place of Lazorou's 106,000 drug errors and the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) 98,000 medical errors, we could add another 216,000 deaths making a total of 999,936 deaths annually.

This study was done in 2004 and later studies show not much improvement has been made in 10 years.

 

The 2010 CDC figures for deaths from heart disease and cancer are:

  • Heart disease: 597,689
  • Cancer: 574,743
  • Total Number of deaths: 2,468,435 due to all causes.

     

    Iatrogenic deaths or those caused by hospitals and medical treatment is now, ten years later, likely over 1,000,000 or one million deaths per year due to the increase in population, and is almost double that for heart disease.

     

    This is shocking and unacceptable. Do not accept conventional, orthodox treatment, unless it's for broken bones or accidents, because the numbers don't lie.

     

    In the 1850s mercury and blood letting were often used just like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery are used today.

     

    Hygienic and Naturopathic medicine uses methods that do no harm to the body like changing the diet, using nutritional supplements, fasting and water, air and sun baths.

     

    If you get a cancer or heart disease diagnosis, who are you going to go to for help in your time of need?

     

    You are better off getting advice from people who have cured themselves from cancer and heart disease and/or find a nutrition based doctor who does not prescribe drugs, surgery and radiation.

     

    A broken bone or lacerations from accidents is something that a trained medical doctor is very skilled at, but with chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease, he-she can only make things worse.

     

    My mother trusted the local hospital and its doctor when she had mouth cancer from smoking 50 years.

     

    They did an experimental treatment using surgery and radiation. She said, ''Look what they did to me.'', indicating the cutting away of her gums.

     

    She seemed to get better but 8 months later she was dead.

     

    How can the doctor get away with this is because she agreed to the experimental procedure, and because it was experimental there supposedly was no liability on the doctor's part.

     

    People live 4 times longer if they get no treatment for cancer as has been proven by Dr. Hardin Jones, a physiologist with the University of California Dept. of Medical Physics, but if they use natural methods like diet therapy, vitamin, mineral and herb supplementation and fasting they increase their chances of recovery exponentially.

     

    Dr. Bieler M.D. in 1965 wrote a book called Food is Your Best Medicine. It was based upon 50 years of personal experience.

     

    He reveals how properly chosen food had the most positive influence to a patient’s healing.

     

    Dr. Bieler advocates eating raw foods as much as possible as he thinks that they supply all the vitamins and salts necessary and can be digested in raw state most easily.

     

    The most easily digestible proteins are rare beef, lamb, lightly cooked or raw egg yolks and fresh unpasteurized milk.

     

    Dr. Bieler has stressed a few times that proteins are stimulants and if consumed too much can cause problems in your liver, intestinal tissue or kidneys. He thinks that butter is the best choice among fats.

     

    He claims that the primary cause of disease is not germs but rather “toxemia” from improper foods, lifestyle and stress.

     

    Bieler made it clear “that in almost all cases the use of drugs in treating patients is harmful”.

    --------------------------------------
     

     

    In 1829, Webster’s International Dictionary of the English Language defined “psychology” as “a discourse or treatise on the human soul; the doctrine of the nature and properties of the soul.”

     



    By 1961, Merriam Webster’s 3rd International Dictionary defined “psychology” as “the science of mind or mental phenomena or activities; the study of biological organism (as man) and the physical and social environment.” (Darwin considered man nothing more than a higher monkey around 1859)

     

    ---------------------------------------
     

     

    Early psychology such as that begun by St. Thomas Aquinas and extended by many later authors was, in 1879, interrupted severely by one Professor Wundt, a Marxist at Leipzig University in Germany.

     

    This man conceived that man was an animal without soul and based all of his work on the principle that there was no psyche (a Greek word meaning spirit).

     

    With the soul eliminated, psychologists set about manipulating behavior and “training” an individual much like one would train a bear, a dog or any other animal.

     

    Pavlov''s experiments on animal behavior were applied to humans in order to control them.

     

    The therapist tries to make the patient conform to his example of normal behavior using the force of his personality and social standing.

     

    Psychology, the study of the spirit (or mind) then came into the peculiar position of being “a study of the spirit which denied the spirit.” For the subsequent decades,

     

    Wundtian “psychology” was taught broadly throughout the world. It taught that man was an animal. It taught that man could not be bettered. It taught that intelligence never changed.

     

    This subject, Wundtian psychology, became standard, mainly because of the indifference or lack of knowledge of people in charge of universities.
     

     

    One of the essential problems with psychology today is its reliance upon psychiatric or biological behavioral models—a far cry from its foundations. (in religion and philosophy)

    ''''''''''''''''''''''''''

     

    Psychology once followed early philosophy and initially meant the study of the soul—psyche (soul) and ology (study of).

     

    The general thought was that the mind and body were separate entities.
     

     

    Thus, each man and woman was regarded as a composite of soul, mind and matter.


     

    However, all this changed in the late 1800s when German psychologist Wilhelm Wundt established the first “experimental psychology” laboratory in Leipzig University, officially rejecting the existence of the soul and declaring—without a shred of evidence—that man was merely a product of his genes.

     

    In his words, “If one assumes that there is nothing there to begin with but a body, a brain and a nervous system, then one must try to educate by inducing sensations in that nervous system.”

     

    In a Wundt textbook, translated into English in 1911, Wundt declared, “The...soul can no longer exist in the face of our present-day physiological knowledge....”

    Psychiatrists, Physicians & Psychologists That Debunk Psychiatry as a Science

     

    “There are no objective tests in psychiatry-no X-ray, laboratory, or exam finding that says definitively that someone does or does not have a mental disorder.”
    — Allen Frances, Former DSM-IV Task Force Chairman


     

    From "the most powerful psychiatrist in America" (Allen Frances) (New York Times) and "the man who wrote the book on mental illness" (Wired), a deeply fascinating and urgently important critique of the widespread medicalization of normality.

     

    Anyone living a full, rich life experiences ups and downs, stresses, disappointments, sorrows, and setbacks. These challenges are a normal part of being human, and they should not be treated as psychiatric disease.

     

    However, today millions of people who are really no more than "worried well" are being diagnosed as having a mental disorder and are receiving unnecessary treatment.

     

    In Saving Normal, Allen Frances, one of the world's most influential psychiatrists, warns that mislabeling everyday problems as mental illness has shocking implications for individuals and society: stigmatizing a healthy person as mentally ill leads to unnecessary, harmful medications, the narrowing of horizons, misallocation of medical resources, and draining of the budgets of families and the nation.

     

    We also shift responsibility for our mental well-being away from our own naturally resilient and self-healing brains, which have kept us sane for hundreds of thousands of years, and into the hands of "Big Pharma," who are reaping multi-billion-dollar profits.

     

    Frances cautions that the new edition of the "bible of psychiatry," the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5 (DSM-5), will turn our current diagnostic inflation into hyperinflation by converting millions of "normal" people into "mental patients."

     

    Alarmingly, in DSM-5, normal grief will become "Major Depressive Disorder";

     

    the forgetting seen in old age is "Mild Neurocognitive Disorder";

     

    temper tantrums are "Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder";

     

    worrying about a medical illness is "Somatic Symptom Disorder";

     

    gluttony is "Binge Eating Disorder";

     

    and most of us will qualify for adult "Attention Deficit Disorder."

     

    What's more, all of these newly invented conditions will worsen the cruel paradox of the mental health industry: those who desperately need psychiatric help are left shamefully neglected, while the "worried well" are given the bulk of the treatment, often at their own detriment.

     

    Masterfully charting the history of psychiatric fads throughout history, Frances argues that whenever we arbitrarily label another aspect of the human condition a "disease," we further chip away at our human adaptability and diversity, dulling the full palette of what is normal and losing something fundamental of ourselves in the process.

     

    The book Saving Normal is a call to all of us to reclaim the full measure of our humanity.

     

    The manual, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5 (DSM-5) prepared by the American Psychiatric Assn., is psychiatry's only official way of deciding who has a "mental disorder" and who is "normal."

     

    The quotes are necessary because this distinction is very hard to make at the fuzzy boundary between the two.

    +++

    ''To be fair to psychiatrists, I am not saying that they would regard any of these notable voice hearers I’ve named as necessarily mad, although it does make me wonder what they would have made of an emaciated Jesus of Nazareth, following his forty day fast in the desert, his conversations with the devil and his subsequent attempted demolition of the Temple in Jerusalem.''                                          from the hearing voices website:


    ------------------------------



    Tana Dineen, Ph.D., points out: “The horrific suffering that some victims bear cannot be trivialized, nor can it be implied that people never carry scars.” Some people do need help in living with life’s experiences.

     

    This can be received free of charge when a friend listens to your problems or you ask in prayer for help in times of worry and trouble.

     

    But, Dr. Dineen says, the psychology industry profits from turning people into victims “to benefit” itself.

     

    While people can manifest remarkable resilience, psychology has been “largely responsible for the creation of a world in which people live in fear that they will crumble.”
