Dr. Lonsdale, Healing for the 21st Century,” contd.
since the patient is convinced that the physician considers him to be a fake. Unfortunately, this is often exactly the opinion of the physician who believes that the physical symptoms are some kind of psychological protection for the patient, who is unwilling to face the world. If this is the model that we have set up and it is wrong, then we have to replace it with a better model. This book is to introduce the reader to such a model. It demonstrates why preventive medicine, which uses nutrition as its core therapy, has to be the medicine of the 21st century. Although a relatively simple model, it is built upon basic science which is well-known and understood. It is only a matter of moving this knowledge out of the laboratory into the clinic, a procedure which can take many years unless the physician is willing and able to be conversant with the patient's problem in both clinical and biochemical terms. It will show the reader that health can be maintained remarkably easily if the human machine is properly serviced and that the fuel that it receives is the most important of all health measures. I have tried to trace my own development as a physician. I was educated in the most orthodox and austere atmosphere, in a famous London teaching hospital. My early training is remembered with gratitude because it taught me how people tick. Progressing through family practice to the heady atmosphere of a major American subspecialty clinic, I became deeply involved with the fascinating complexities of biochemistry. It was there, in the
mill race of hard-won experience, that I began to see the body as a biochemical machine which can repair itself when provided with its nutritional needs. I found that this principle applied to all illness, not just rare and exotic conditions. To make such a change in personal perspective is just as difficult as changing from one religion to another and demands repeated self-examination and confirmation. In a thousand different ways, I have put my model to the test in my own mind. It has yet to become unglued. I hope that, by tracing a personal event of such magnitude, as I see it, that I have provided the reader with a blueprint that enables that perspective to become visible to others. – Derrick Lonsdale, M.D., Strongsville OH “Everything is connected to everything else.” Dr. Lonsdale retired in 2012 at the age of 88 years; he is a retired Fellow of the American College of Nutrition and a Certified Nutrition Specialist.

"Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship.

"It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I www.dialogue.ca

Of all the Existential Issues that we face today, individually and humanity collectively, none is more critical than the Medical Mafia Dictatorship that is being legalistically entrenched, nationally and internationally, whereby the Agenda of the Siamese-Twins of Multinational Corporate vested interests and hijacked Government complicity and agendas demand legalistic “Ownership and the Rightof-Control” over the individual’s body, Public Health Policies and Medical Practice - under the false pretenses of fabricated pseudoscience and relentless propaganda and fear mongering. Mandatory Vaccines are the holy cow in the forefront. They are the “vehicle” for implementing a much bigger agenda.
