The Fungus Link

In 1996, Dr. David Holland and I were busy gathering data to confirm our suspicions that what we had been observing clinically had scientific validity. For the previous 25 years, I had been able to assist people with many diseases and symptoms by addressing a germ that physicians had completely missed in their diagnoses. There are today approximately 80 documented autoimmune diseases, each one without an etiological basis (known cause). Scientists have no idea what causes the heart attacks and cancers that kill one million people annually. In medicine, the word “germ” is often used synonymously with the word “bacteria.” This, in a small way, illustrates the confusion regarding the causes of disease among even the brightest medical practitioners and scientists.

So it is that the first book we know of to implicate fungus as the cause of debilitation and death has been completed. As you peruse these pages, know that this work includes scientific notation and confirmation of the hypothesis that disease does have a known pathogen and is not bacterial in every instance!

I suppose the invention of antibiotics was viewed as revolutionary by those in 1950s science. Our brightest, best scientists concluded that we had finally defeated the germs responsible for causing sickness and disease. If this were true, 1955 should have been a banner year in science. Certainly those millions who took antibiotics in that five year time span were now less vulnerable to common maladies. If not, they reasoned, then perhaps more antibiotics would permanently fix them. I have often used the analogy of calcium intake and osteoporosis in America to prove my point before surrendering to the notion that antibiotics were not the magic bullet hoped for. If osteoporosis were due to calcium deficiency,Americans would never have osteoporosis. Today, celebrity white moustaches abound, beckoning us to drink more milk! Between the calcium supplements we throw down our throats and the amount of milk that we drink, our bones should never become fragile!

Yet the opposite is true in each of these situations. Osteoporosis is striking more Americans than ever before in history, despite dairy intake and calcium supplementation. Bacteria continue to elude even the best antibiotics, despite the billions of dollars of pharmaceutical research. Unless the etiology (cause) of a disease is identified, all the supplements and drugs in the world may be for naught.
Early in the year 2000, researchers discovered that the density of the bones of laboratory mice improved up to 50 percent when they were given cholesterol-lowering drugs. It is even more important to note that cholesterol-lowering drugs are antifungal medications. That brings us full circle.

This book is a compilation of data originally published from 1997 to 1999 in our newsletter,The Fungazette. TheFungus Link is designed to help our readers locate the possible cause of their health maladies. It seems an especially lonely existence when you are sick and no one knows why. This book does not replace the diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment that your health care practitioner can provide. But it is my hope that, in time, the competency at diagnosing fungal disease will improve. I can assure you that will happen if medical protocol will call for proper diet and antifungal herbs or medicines for their difficult patients. There is nothing more convincing than observing life threatening diseases frequently respond favorably to simple antifungal therapy. Continue Reading >>
