“This small book is a gem, containing much more than a critique of the current American medical system. The cure of inflammation and disease resides in simple, non-toxic approaches that release tension, reduce inflammation, and allow self-regulation to cure. For those who have ears to hear and eyes to see, Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs provides a great philosophical foundation: keep it simple and safe!”
—C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD; President, Holos Institutes of Health
“Dr. Harvey Bigelsen has a profound insight into the synergy of the body and its interconnectedness. This is a landmark book that illustrates in simple language the progression of chronic, degenerative disease and what you and your doctor should be looking for in order to be healed.”
—Dr. George J. Georgiou, PhD, ND, DSc (AM), author of Curing the Incurable with Holistic Medicine and academic director of DaVinci College of Holistic Medicine
“Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs: How Surgery Can Be Hazardous to Your Health—And What to Do About It is Bigelsen's wake-up call to the profession, and to patients, that the body does indeed want to heal itself, and invasive medical procedures lead to long-lasting health problems.”
—Spirit of Change
“Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs is provocatively written and is fairly radical in its approach, but it challenges the reader to rethink everything they believe about illness, and how to treat it.”
“Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs is an alternative medicine book proposing that modern evidence-based medicine, and surgery in particular, is counterproductive to the body’s own powers of natural healing.”
—New York Journal of Books
“Reading through the pages of Bigelsen's book reveals a powerful message for the ‘sheeple’ of today's society. Bringing common sense into the light once more, this book is truly an asset to the medical community, as well as any person looking to improve their health.”
“Doctors are More Harmful Than Germs shows that common medical problems are the cause of many chronic, long-term health problems, and argues that better medical approaches allow the body go through the process of healing rather than suppressing symptoms. [Bigelsen] offers a radically different perspective on illness and its treatment. … A pick for general-interest and medical collections alike.”
—Midwest Book Review

Harvey Bigelsen, M.D. studies living blood--something Western Medicine ignores--to diagnose, treat, and cure chronic disease. His therapies are based on "biological medicine" which aims at assisting the body's natural systems, rather than suppressing symptoms. His achievements are impressive--in 1979 he cofounded the American Holistic Medical Association and in 1988 he received a Person of the Year award from The Hans Nieper Foundation--for contributing the most influential work to U.S. natural medicine. He has written and published four books, including: Medical Conspiracy in America, The Holographic Blood, Your Cure for Cancer and the subject for this review--Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs.
Dr. Bigelsen delivers an electric shock to America's "sheeple" who have all been blindly following mainstream medicine for decades. Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs is a wakeup call that shatters our country's long-held beliefs about treating disease! Modern medicine is still based on the famous French biologist Louis Pasteur's "germ theory" which blames germs as the cause for disease. Dr. Bigelsen maintains that Pasteur's theory has survived because it supports modern medicine's "magic bullet" philosophy (12). Biological medicine evolved from Pasteur's "intellectual rival," Antoine Bechamp--who claimed disease can only exist in a weakened body (12).
Dr. Bigelsen comments that while attending medical school, blood was always "stained" (dehydrated) and "fixed for immortality" before peering through the microscope (19). He wasn't introduced to living blood until the mid 1980's.Read more ›
Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs....How Surgery Can Be Hazardous to Your Health---And What to Do About It By Harvey Bigelsen, M.D. softcover
I applaud his courage to step out ahead of the herd and be the change we all would like to see in modern medicine. It is happening now and I for one have had enough of the current status quo.
This book gives you good reason to take infections, inflammation and other symptoms more seriously, and to deal with them wisely.
Wish I had read such stuff years ago, but better late than never.
1. The US medical system is money motivated and NOT for the interest of the patients. You will read about unethical practices by MD.
2. The US medical system is about treating symptoms and not about finding a cure. The FDA, AMA, and other government agencies serve only the interest of protecting their biggest lobbiers – PHARMACEUTICAL companies.
3. Our medical advancement is deliberately suppressed for the interest of power in control. Medical students are wrongly educated.
4. Inflammation process is a healing process and not a “bad” function of the body. Pain is part of the inflammation and that pain is a signal that your body IS healing. By letting the inflammation process go through the full cycle is to help repair the body and improves immune system of the body. The inflammation process helps eliminate toxins building up in the body.
5. Surgery is never good, NO matter how small the surgery is. Most surgeries do not improve health.
6. Structural Function and Integrity is very important and is overlooked in our medical system. Every organ and body part is important in the body, including the alignment and positioning of bones, organs, muscles etc..... Our US medical system focuses on chemicals and do NOT consider Structural Function.
7. Pharmaceutical meds are over prescribed in the US.
8. Genes are NOT a precursor to diseases. Hereditary diseases do not exist but a reason to medicate a person.Read more ›
