Dr. Bergman’s best selling books
This book of recipes is for optimal healing. Your body is self-healing and self-regenerating and self-regulating. Nutrition is not taught in detail in Medical schools even though throughout time even the “father of medicine” Hippocrates said “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food” and even older than that there is an Ayurvedic saying “when diet is good medicine is of no need and when diet is poor medicine is of no good” This book is to guide you on how your body metabolizes nutrients and prevent and even reverse disease in most cases. I will present information to get the most out of the food you have available to where ever you live on our planet. Some places at some times of the year won’t have fresh vegetables available so I will ask you to substitute fermented vegetables and show you how to prepare them. You may not have access to fresh coconuts or fresh spices I will always give you alternatives so no matter where you are or what you can afford you will always have cost effective healthy food choices for you and your family. I will also show you how to have healthy meals that even the pickiest child or adult will like. You will need some equipment to predigest your food because most diseases start in the gut. Most people today have poor digestion from the types of food available and poor medical care like over use of medications and poor quality of foods. So we have to heal the gut first.
I have had patients as young as 12 years old and up to 73 years old come to me diagnosed with FMS, with the average age being between 25 and 45. Every aspect of their lives has been affected with this disease, limiting even the most basic of daily activities and family interactions. I have seen relationships torn apart and the black cloud of FMS descend on whole families even though just one person has FMS. FMS affects spouses, siblings, children, and friends of the person suffering with FMS.
Now, the tough part of this is that Fibromyalgia is a disease that, according to medical authorities, is incurable. The Mayo Clinic definition of Fibromyalgia is:
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event. Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression. While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms.
I need to thank my patients for having the courage to stand up to a medical system that is not just broken but dangerous. It takes an incredible amount of courage to take responsibility for your own health. Too many people today abdicate authority over their health to a medical professional, submitting to medical procedures blindly, and many times with disastrous results.
I have always approached health issues with the idea that the human body is intelligent and there are reasons for its responses to environmental stimuli (that is what doctors and people call symptoms). If you look at all symptoms, whether you are dealing with High Blood Pressure, Depression, Reflux, or even Cancer, know that the body has intelligent responses to deficiencies or toxicities – and then the solution for those symptoms or conditions will be clear. This driving thought has been inspiring me to research the true source of disease and the solutions for those diseases.
In this book, I include real patients with real problems that have been mistreated by an obsolete medical system. I have changed the names of the patients, but their ages and the symptoms, and therapies they endured are real. I want you to appreciate the true courage one must have to take charge and responsibility for one’s health, and to go against the health authorities of today. Throughout history, changing a broken system has taken vision, courage, and the ability to focus on a different idea. When Galileo first had the idea that the earth wasn’t the center of the universe, he was threatened with excommunication from the church and ridiculed by those in power. But his ideas were proven to be true and today he is hailed as a hero.
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
The quote above is vital to ponder when we are confronting a belief system that arthritis is reversible.
Arthritis reversal is more about human potential. On doing research for this book I studied several body-building groups. I found one in Japan where the minimum age is 75 years. That’s right; you have to be 75 years old to join. A lot of people think that as we age we’re supposed to break down, and that’s not true. If you don’t drive a car, the car is going to last a long time; but if you don’t drive a body, it’s going to break down early. With human beings, the more we use our body, the longer it works.
