Richard Gerber, has written a ground breaking book which attempts to meld science with holistic medicine.
I can highly recommend this book. I have decided to include a link to an existing book review, but the review is
too dry for me and certainly does not emphasise enough the importance of this text. Online Book Review. Furthermore I
have included a link to Amazon.com for further details, (click on book image).
I believe that this doctor represents many doctors who are now realising that subtle energies within the body exist
and that we already have a 'natural' arsenal of tools that affect the body on my different subtle levels to facilitate
the body to heal itself.
At this point I will digress, to illustrate my point from my own experience. In 1995, I met an African woman in
England, who had trained in conventional medicine to become a qualified doctor. Soon after qualifying she was
told that she had cancer and only had a month to live. Since, she was African she thought she would go back to
Africa to die, because as far as conventional medicine was concerned, there was no hope and she had bought
into that belief system. Back home, she came across an African herbalist who gave her Aloe Vera and some other
herbs in a jar. Thinking she had nothing to lose she took the 'medicine', after a couple of months, she was still alive
so she thought that maybe she should go back to her doctors in England and find out what was happening in her
body. The tests revealed that she had been completely 'cured' of the cancer, I think the technical term is 'in
remission'. Now this lady who was obviously intelligent was incredulous that the medical system she believed in
had not been able to help her but she had been cured with a jar of Aloe Vera and herbs, given to her by someone
who probably would have had no credibility in the outside world. This lady made-up her mind to try to help others
like herself who had been diagnosed with cancer using her training and holistic medicine. I met her thirteen years
after she was supposed to have died, and she was fighting fit.
Currently, I believe that 'alternative medicine' is so well established now and that there are so many cases of
people curing themselves and going back to doctors to report and verify their healings that some doctors have
decided to incorporate alternative therapies in their convention practices. Other doctors like the African doctor,
have completely given conventional medicine up and only practise alternative medicine. You, must realise that the
climate for doctors especially in the U.S. and U.K. is extremely hostile, their suicide rate is high and life
expectancy not as high as you would think compared to other walks of life. The question is, why is this so?
Returning to the above book, it is a reference book, and I like it because it has given me details of currently
scientific thought and research that has been done, which is very enlightening. I would like to present the following
quotes that grace the front of this book by expert peers.
"Twenty-first century care will be based upon the subtle energy principles and interventions involving the
mind, body, environmental, and spiritual dimensions which are so authoritatively documented in Vibrational
Medicine. Clearly, this is a landmark book which is challenging, controversial, and brilliant tour de force of major
and clinical significance."

"Dr Richard Gerber's well-researched text is a welcome addition to the growing interest in the alternative
modalities which assist the thousands wanting non-toxic medical treatements....Dr Gerber's book with his
outstanding medical credentials adds tremendous credible information to the holistic movement."

"What a masterpiece! For the first time we have a scientific review of energy healing with a powerful
overview of the whole subject.....I predict it will bw standard reference for all researchers and teachers. My hat's
off to you Richard."

I will be detailing some of the scientific research outlined in this book on this website, because I believe it is not widely known and the significance cannot be understated.
