Doctors Health Press, a division of Lombardi Publishing Corporation and publisher of various natural health newsletters, books, and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on the recent work of director Nick Polizzi on the effects of shamanism in curing and healing modern illnesses.
In an interview with Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/general-health-2/would-you-trust-your-life-to-amazonian-medicine-men), Polizzi notes, “Most people involved in this holistic health genre work with medicine men and shamans, and understand that at the core of a lot of these symptoms, there are much deeper, ancient, and more spiritual roots.”
As the article “Would You Trust Your Life to Amazonian Medicine Men?” reports, Polizzi sent out a call for anyone with a severe illness—such as diabetes, cancer, or gastrointestinal diseases—and asked them if they’d be willing to risk everything and come to the Amazon rainforest for 30 days to see if ancient holistic methods of healing could help them, when Western medicine couldn’t. Overnight, he had over 400 applicants, which he narrowed down to eight people with very serious diseases: neuroendocrine cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer; Parkinson’s disease; depression/alcoholism; irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); type 2 diabetes; and Crohn’s disease.
The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article states that each participant was given a unique protocol, including meal plans, teas, and herbal regimen, prescribed by the native medicine men living in the Amazon rainforests. The participants spent most of their days in seclusion in the jungle, other than their daily visits by the medicine man who was taking care of them.
Polizzi says, “In a typical day, you would wake up, eat breakfast—very simple food, which is also part of the protocol—the blander, the better it is when you’re trying to heal, because (the healers) feel that indulging your senses diminishes your body’s reserves. They want all that energy to be focused on healing instead.”
As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin reports, the healing process consisted of a few key components: isolation; medicine from plants, trees, and herbs; a simplified diet; and sacred ceremonies. After one month in the Amazon rainforests, five people returned home with real results, satisfied with their improvements, two returned disappointed, and one person passed away there.
Polizzi adds, “The goal is to bring these techniques back into the mainstream because they’re really effective.” And he concludes, “Modern medicine is not effective at treating things like cancer—we are in need of a serious reinvestigation of what else is out there.”
