 "Most over-the-counter and almost all prescribed drug treatments merely mask symptoms or control health problems or in some way alter the way organs or systems such as the circulatory system work. Drugs almost never deal with the reasons why these problems exist, while they frequently create new health problems as side effects of their activities."
-John R. Lee, M.D.  



 "The treatments themselves do not 'cure' the condition, they simply restore the body's self-healing ability."

-Leon Chaitow, N.D., D.O.
