The Strong Evidence for the Healing Power of Prayer
Fri, 03/12/2010 - 23:46 — BBelitsos


Most people know from personal experience that prayer is an effective therapy. This is the reason why human beings have prayed for thousands of years. This alone should be sufficient for the medical profession to support prayer as a formal medical therapy. However, there is considerable scientific evidence in mainstream medical literature validating the effectiveness of prayer in treating many diseases. Nonetheless, it is not taught in medical schools and physicians are not encouraged to pray for or with their patients.

A Fervent Call for Sustainable Health Care
Fri, 03/12/2010 - 22:23 — BBelitsos


A great disappointment has descended upon the majority of Americans. Both the left and the right feel let down by the federal government’s strangely inadequate package of health care reforms that is about to be passed. We all witnessed last year’s spectacle of a corporate-dominated Congress tinkering with an outmoded paradigm of medicine, even while leaving Wall Street values in control of health-care delivery, medical research, and health insurance. It has solved very little. And it is far from sustainable.

Success in preventing and curing Type 2 diabetes
Tue, 02/09/2010 - 16:21 — BBelitsos

America’s epidemic of Type 2 diabetes has become a national emergency. In fact, we are currently fighting a losing war against this disease, which now affects almost 25 percent of all Americans in its earliest form, known as metabolic syndrome. But now there is hope—not only for containing the disease with new drugs—but for (1) prevention, (2) amelioration of the its symptoms and manifestations, and (3) even for curing this scourge entirely.

2010: A Good Year for Radical Health-Care Reform
Fri, 01/29/2010 - 14:35 — BBelitsos



[By Dr. Len Saputo] When Barack Obama became president-elect of the United States, most of us felt a sense of hope we hadn't experienced in years. We trusted that a new era of transparency in politics was just around the corner and that America would finally tackle its social, economic, and political problems. We anticipated a turning point in American history--a social transformation of major proportions. We imagined the rebirthing of the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. And we had our first African-American president to boot!

Is It Time to Make Health Freedom a Constitutional Right?
Sat, 11/28/2009 - 16:04 — BBelitsos

[By Dr. Len Saputo, with Byron Belitsos] A core principle of what we call Health Medicine is a patient’s right to freedom of choice and their right to know. Whom are we kidding when, because of monopolistic medical practices, patients are not informed of all the treatments known from evidence to benefit their condition.....
