What was the original goal of medicine and healing with reference to the great physicians of all-time?
The Hippocratic Oath is an oath taken by all present- day doctors who get licensed.
Do you think all of our medical doctors are true to this oath today?
Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.
Dr. Hans Neiper, Germany:
“After more than twenty years of such specialized work, I have found the nontoxic nitrilosides – that is, Laetrile – far superior to any other known cancer treatment or preventative…”
The Holy Scripture says:
“The fruit thereof is for meat and the leaves for the healing of the nations”
We can only reason that primordial man, living close to nature in a wild state, must have observed the habits and instincts of animals. If so, he must have learned much about the curative virtues of herbs because of the remarkable instinct of present day animals who unquestionably know the herbs that heal them.
Learning from animals
From the highest to the lowest crawling animal, they all seem to know their remedies. Even the snake, the least intelligent of them, knows his remedy. When he casts his skin, he goes blind, and in that helpless condition he has often been seen to crawl to an old fallen tree of a mossy bank. He rubs his sightless orbs in the moss, eats the rich juice, and with that one herb he restores both his skin and his sight.
When the little mongoose is stung while fighting venomous snakes in India, he immediately leaves the fight, dashes into the jungle, and finding an herb, eats it. He rubs the poisoned part in its juices. Then he returns to kill the snake, and according to the testimony of thousands of witnesses, no mongoose has ever died of snake bite.
When hawks and carrion birds peck at the eyes of young birds of another nest, and when the eyes have not been totally destroyed, the mother of that nest has been seen to anoint her babies’ eyes with the juice of the leaves of the greater celandine herb, chelidonium majus. It has been recorded that the films and opacities have been removed and the bird’s eyes completely restored to sight.
When a monkey is sick of a possible cancer, he is seen peeling off the fruit of the peach down to the pit and cracking the pit open and devouring the bitter seed inside. It’s full of the nitriloside we call vitamin B17. Similarly, when a dog is sick he is seen eating the grasses that have high contents of B17. The bears eat the vissula, high in B17, as well as hundreds of other similar cases.
These are just a handful of thousands of incidences in nature denoting the marvelous instinctual knowledge of animals in the selection of their remedies.
Taken from: “Advanced Treatments in Herbology”

Indeed, it is a positive certainty that none of the eminent new schools of present day have been nearly as successful in curing disease than were Hippocrates, Galen and Sydenham. Meantime, however, there have arisen a bright galaxy of names – scholars, doctors etc. – as ever adorned any age of the world, devoting themselves to the practice of medicine, but who fail to get the grand results anticipated.
All their learning and their multitudinous writings have only served to make confusion more confounded, and all because they have neglected to follow the dictates of nature and plain common sense in maintaining the herbal practice as the only true and philosophical foundation of the healing art.
