Unconventional Diagnoses

By Burton Goldberg

Alternative medicine is best known for preventing health problems, but it can also enable us to detect degenerative disease well before it becomes a serious threat. Part of its advantage stems from the tendency of alternative practitioners to evaluate the whole body to look for causes of disease. I don’t think my heart doctor would have died of cancer or my cancer doctor died of heart disease if they had been able to see systemic imbalances rather than focusing on one particular body part that was diseased. Finding out about such an imbalance early on might well have given each a fighting chance of reversing his illness.

Alternative diagnostic methods also offer a degree of sensitivity you won’t often find in conventional medicine, which relies heavily on standard blood workups that don’t always pick up on subtle problems. An example of this sensitivity appears in the work of physician Wolf-Dieter Kessler, who uses electromagnetic frequency to detect problems like hormonal imbalances well ahead of conventional methods.

In our industrialized world we all “dance close to the fire,” as a friend of mine, physician Garry Gordon, likes to say. The fire is a devastating health condition and the dance is the combination of our sedentary lifestyle, toxic environment, and poor diets. With knowledge from new diagnostic mechanisms, however, we can learn when and how to move away from the fire.

I believe that if we make use of these new tools, we can drastically reduce our chances of facing a diagnosis of any number of advanced degenerative diseases.

With that in mind, I’ve asked four alternative physicians to tell me what they think are among the most promising new diagnostic methods available today. While more research is warranted on all of them, I believe they represent exciting new ways to apprehend serious illnesses early enough to head them off with natural and non-invasive methods.

Blood Viscosity Test
Garry Gordon, who practices in Payson, Arizona, reports that he has made exceptional progress in preventing stroke and heart attack by focusing on the viscosity of blood rather than on the arteries that contain it. Measuring viscosity accurately, however, is surprisingly tricky, and Gordon is one of the few who has an effective protocol that employs natural techniques.

Unlike most fluids, blood is thin while moving but thick when it slows—and blood should flow like wine, not ketchup! Why are we so prone to ketchup-like blood? Some have speculated that thousand of years of violent human activity have selectively bred our species to be geared toward surviving bodily injury (by rapid control of bleeding) rather than toward just surviving into a peaceful and healthy old age. The fight-or-flight stress response triggers the flow of the insoluble protein called fibrin, and fibrin responds to injury by causing blood coagulation or clotting. So in modern humans under stress, whether physical or emotional, the mec...
