Taking together my background as a scientist and physician, and adding to that some common sense, I cannot accept the concept that we can fix our ailing cells with a single foreign chemical.
This notion becomes even more a leap of faith when we consider the highly complex but extremely ordered and controlled chemical processes that we know occur in our cells. How can a single invading foreign chemical be anything more than a “spanner” in a highly organised network? A temporary relief perhaps; but not a solution! In my experience, restoring chemicals naturally-produced by the body and/or adding natural chemicals that the body seems pre-programmed to see (nutrients and hormones), especially if these are deficient, achieves better, more corrective and long lasting benefits without the “spanner in the works”.
I have co-developed a new Medical Infrared Thermal Imaging for very early non-invasive detection of breast cancer. Earlier detection in younger women by Thermography gives us an unprecedented opportunity to stem the tide of increasing breast cancer occurrence.
Thermal abnormalities indicative of increased risk can then be reversed by the correct attention to lifestyle, nutrition and detoxification.
In my practice, I have seen many abnormal breast thermal images become normal within 6 months by correct attention to lifestyle and making some key nutritional modifications. Women making the decision to have radical mastectomy because they carry the BRCA gene mutations pre-supposes that having a genetic mutation makes us a victim of our genes and completely ignores the following scientifically proven facts.
Genes cannot turn themselves on and off
Genes are turned on and off and therefore their expression altered by signals from the environment
Certain key nutrients can change gene expression (or turn them on or off)
Science has already identified many of these key nutrients that alter genetic risk.
The good news is that many of these important gene-regulating nutrients are found in a healthy diet and particularly in plant foods, fruit and vegetable nutrients. Omega 3’s and Vitamin D also play a crucial role. We are not sitting ducks to our genetic risks! If the right nutrients go in then we can keep our cells behaving in a healthy and regulated disease-free way. Recent science has uncovered some of the mechanisms by which these natural nutrients have their beneficial effect on our cells. It makes for “jaw-dropping” reading.
As a Doctor, I was not taught all this at Medical school, and I realise that the way medicine is taught is with the notion that there is a chemical-fix for all diseases. The ever-increasing tide of cancer, heart disease and autoimmune disease clearly shows that modern medicine is not winning the battle. The rate of incidence of solid cancers has essentially doubled in men and women over the last 40 years; breast cancer has increased by 80% and prostate cancer by 100%. It is high time that Medicine changed its philosophy to embrace that of the father of Medicine, Hippocrates, who said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. He also said “He who does not know food, how can he know the diseases of man”.
Then God said “ I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” (Genesis 1: 29 NIV). When we rolled off the production line, this must have been part of the specification to keep us in good working order.
About Dr. Eccles:
Dr Eccles has many years of experience in Natural and Nutritional Medicine and is the Medical Director of The Natural Doctor where he is pioneering new innovations in breast health and risk reduction of breast cancer. He was the first physician to bring Medical Infrared Thermal Imaging technology into the UK with its application in the early breast cancer detection (6-10 years earlier than mammography). He is also offers services as an Anti-Ageing expert, nutritional medicine and natural hormone specialist. His successful treatments have led to his latest project; developing and implementing Medical Spa programs for a chain of high end 5-star hotels. He has further expertise in Magnetic Medicine and has pioneered research in this area in the UK over the last 10 years. His research led to the first ever magnetic product being given Drug Tariff approval in March 2006. His more recent work with one of these magnetic products, LadyCare, that significantly relieves menopause symptoms, has led to discovery of a novel mechanism of action; a world patent on this discovery is pending (his second patent).
In an attempt to help people to alter their disease risks, he lectures regularly on topics such as “Natural Cancer support”, “Food as Medicine”, “Breast Health and Nutrition”, “Prostate Health and Nutrition”. He is in great demand as a public speaker, increasingly being asked to appear on radio and TV for his expert opinion on Natural Medicine.
