This is the book of the century. I hope this Medical Medium book review can inspire you to walk the path of natural healing. You will thank yourself for it. This is such an enlightening book, it would be a disservice to mankind not to spread the word and let more people know about it.
Who is this guy, and what’s this all about?
The author of the book, Anthony William, is the medical medium himself. He hasn’t gone through any medical training, but gets all his knowledge and wisdom about health and diseases through a voice that he calls the Spirit, a Higher Order. A voice that he actually hears in his ears. Yeah, I know, it’s time for some skepticism. I myself was in doubt, as I’m the kind of person who needs evidence and research to back up claims, otherwise it will be difficult to convince me.
But somehow, I gave it a chance, as there was something in there that resonated with me. I read on with an open mind, and I sure am glad that I did. I pored through the book over the next few days and nights, whenever I could find some free time. At the end of it, I learnt so much about many chronic illnesses, their causes, how most diseases can be healed naturally, and now I totally embrace this way of life – healthy living, clean eating, and the body will heal itself.
Medical Medium book review – the philosophies I now embrace
In this Medical Medium book review, I will talk about the fundamental ideas presented by Anthony William, and the main sections in the book.
The body does not attack itself
This is one main recurring theme throughout the book. Anthony shares the wrong concept adopted by modern medicine which perceives autoimmune diseases as the body attacking itself. He clarifies that the body will always work for us, not against us. For the body to launch an attack, it is actually fighting against some virus, pathogen or other undesirable substances that conventional medicine has not discovered, or made the link with yet.
The Epstein-Barr virus
This is the other strong message in the book, that this Epstein-Barr virus is responsible for many illnesses, chronic and acute. Unfortunately, there are many strains of the virus that the medical community has not yet discovered, so there are no tests for them.
The virus can lay dormant deep in our organs for years without us ever realising it, and at the right time when our immune system is weakened, due to bacterial infection, some other viral infection, fatigue, or depression, etc., it wrecks havoc. It can manifest as a multitude of different symptoms in different people, depending on which organ or which part of the body it affects.
And because conventional medicine diagnoses illnesses according to their symptoms, no one has made the link between multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, thyroid disorders, lupus, adrenal fatigue, etc. as all stemming from the same root cause of a virus. These illnesses are merely given a name based on their symptoms, no one really understands WHY people develop them.
Specific chronic illnesses covered in the book
Anthony addresses the following chronic illnesses in his book, and their links to the Epstein-Barr virus:
- multiple sclerosis
- rheumatoid arthritis
- hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- type 2 diabetes and hypoglycemia
- adrenal fatigue
- ADD/ADHD and autism
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- premenstrual syndrome and menopause
- Lyme disease
Anthony discusses the foods to avoid, and foods that can heal us, with particular emphasis on gut health and how to restore it. He also addresses ‘fruit fear’, which is the perceived negative effects of fruits due to their high sugar level. He explains why fruits are the most healing foods, and we should not have to avoid the natural and beneficial sugars in them.
He recommends supplements that will benefit everyone, and lastly, he ends off with a 4-week cleansing meal plan which focuses on reducing inflammation by consuming raw fruits and vegetables.
In the book, Anthony also deliberates the role of angels in our lives, and how having faith and praying to our angels will heal us in various aspects: our soul, heart, spirit, and physical health. He encourages meditation, being in nature, and other techniques to feed the soul.
If there is one negative thing that I must say about this book
It will be that there is no scientific basis for Anthony’s claims that so many of the chronic illnesses are actually caused by a virus. But he made it clear right from the start, that all this knowledge comes from some higher order, as medicine has not uncovered so much of these insights and wisdom yet. So the reader can choose to believe it or not.
But if you think about it, a lot of it makes sense. Doctors know to identify symptoms, diagnose the illness, and prescribe drugs to manage the symptoms. So many times, when we try to probe deeper into the root cause of an illness, they actually do not have an answer.
No matter which you choose to believe, I hope this Medical Medium book review has convinced you that the book is a great read, because it provides a very refreshing insight to many of the common chronic ailments, and the steps to healing are all natural, suitable for even a totally healthy person to further enhance his lifestyle and habits. And for the sick person, Anthony reminds us that if we provide the body with what it needs, it will heal and thrive, because our bodies are made to heal themselves, if only we let them.
I now live my life based on the philosophies that inspired me in this book, with a much stronger conviction about what miracles our bodies are, and with more optimism than ever before, that my two eczema warriors can be healed of their condition that once consumed and crippled their lives.
