When we go to the physician today — when we go to the doctor's office and we walk in, there are words that we just don't want to hear. There are words that we're truly afraid of. Diabetes, cancer, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, heart failure, lung failure — things that we know are debilitating diseases, for which there's relatively little that can be done. And what I want to lay out for you today is a different way of thinking about how to treat debilitating disease, why it's important, why without it perhaps our health care system will melt down if you think it already hasn't, and where we are clinically today, and where we might go tomorrow, and what some of the hurdles are.
He offers reams of health advice based on nothing but fantasy. He even tells readers to call on 12 angels out loud by their name. He claims to have helped tens of thousands of patients heal from ailments that have been misdiagnosed or ineffectively treated. William disregards science, because science sometimes contradicts itself and is confusing.
The information he gets from Spirit is not confusing; it is the truth and the voice of compassion. He has written several best-selling books to share the information that Spirit has given him. And he asks us to believe all this simply because he says so. He has never been tested.
This is all clearly outside the universe of discourse of science-based medicine. We have no reason to take him seriously. I skimmed and dismissed an earlier book of his as not worth my time, but I decided to take a closer look at his book Life-Changing Foods: I thought it would Antithesis medicine specific claims that would be easy to fact-check.

These are the answers for humanity. These are what will save us.
Fruits and vegetables are mainstream advice. He makes unsubstantiated health claims for spices. Because they grow from the earth and are showered by the sun and sky, enduring out in the elements day after day as they form, they are intimately connected to the holy forces of nature.
They contain intelligence from the Earthly Mother and the heavens that we desperately need about how to adapt. He provides extensive lists of foods from these four groups. For each, he provides An introduction with unsubstantiated health claims supposedly based on current scientific knowledge i.
A list of symptoms that are reasons to bring the food into your life. Emotional support provided by the food. When eating a fig, imagine the fig tree it came from standing in front of you, to amplify its healing, grounding power.
And to top it all off, he offers a recipe featuring each food. Some of his claims are demonstrably false; some are just bizarre. He says infertility can be treated by creative visualizations, walking meditations, and breathing exercises to draw white light into the reproductive organs.
He says there are two kinds of living water. Hydrobioactive water is inside all the Holy Four foods. It holds life-giving nutrients and hydrates better than any drink of plain water can. Twelve of them, and he lists their names, like the Angel of Abundance and the Angel of Addiction.
He instructs his readers to call on the appropriate angel out loud, by name. While there is most definitely an element of otherworldly mystery to the work he does, much of what Anthony William shines a spotlight on—particularly around autoimmune disease—feels inherently right and true.
His extensive and well-reasoned critique concludes:Precision Medicine and the SEP-1 Mandate.
Paul E Marik and Joseph Varon. In his State of the Union address before both chambers of the US Congress on 20 January , President Barack Obama announced the launch of a new initiative called Precision Medicine, “I want the country that eliminated polio and mapped the human genome to lead a new era of medicine—one that delivers the right.

The Antithesis of Science-Based Medicine: The Medical Medium’s Fantasy-Based Health Advice.
Anthony William, the Medical Medium, hears voices that give him advanced scientific information from the spirit world. He offers reams of health advice based on nothing but fantasy. He even tells readers to call on 12 angels out loud by their name. Antithesis means opposite and is used as a literary device to put two contrasting ideas together.
This emphasizes the difference between the two ideas and adds interest to writing. This emphasizes the difference between the two ideas and adds interest to writing. Look—for several years, I've practiced palliative medicine in the context of hospice, primarily in the South Side of Chicago and in Durham, North Carolina.
