From the Point of View of Health Professionals
“If there is a dirty little secret in our profession, it is this: there is a paucity of scientific evidence for most things we doctors do, orthodox and alternative.”

“A Peace of My Mind”
February 1991, JAMA
“I have been in practice for 15 years now and have assembled quite a lot of technology. I started as a classical homeopath but realized its limitations. Along the way I have been through VEGA, Kirlian, EAV, IV’s including chelation, DMPS, Hydrogen peroxide, Hydrochloric acid and the usual vitamin and mineral protocols. Also neural therapy, darkfield microscopy, biological terrain assessment and complex homeopathy both orally and injectable.
“I can see on the horizon CRT (computerized thermography) and an upgrade of the EAV (Electroacupuncture according to Voll) machine. And I am tired of running after all these things. The tools for diagnostics have certainly helped, but I am now on overload as far as information on patients (from the diagnostic devices) is concerned and the links to all this information coming from all this equipment is what’s missing the most. I feel that my concept of ‘underlying’ causes needs to make a shift into a different level of understanding.”

From the Point of View of Patients
“Dear Dr. Yurkovsky:
“I have recently read both of your articles from the January and April editions of The Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients. After spending considerable time and energy over the past 15 years, I have come to recognize that medicine today is at best a hit or miss operation. Your Field Control Therapy ideas intrigue me and offer me a ray of hope for my own health and that of my family.
“During the past three years I, a 52 yr. old woman, have developed Hashimodto’s thyroid disease, my 9 yr. old daughter has had strep throat 8 times and is now scheduled for a tonsillectomy in July, and my 59 yr. old husband is currently undergoing simultaneous radiation and chemotherapy for adenocarcinoma of the neck with unknown primary site. Last year he underwent an abdominal aortic aneurysm operation.
“It seems to me that there must be some kind of link that all three of us would develop throat and serious immune ailments during the past three years. I personally have spent much time and expense in trying to improve my own health. (Kidney removed in 1972, chronic herpetic infections since 1982, chronic respiratory allergies since ’71, lichen sclerosis/vaginitis/ vulvodynia since ’85, hypothyroidism since ’98, candida forever).
“In the past 15 yrs I have consulted with 3 gynecologists, 2 internists, 3 family doctors, 5 endrocrinologists, 1 naturopath, 8 homeopaths, 3 acupuncturists, 3 integrative/holistic MDs, and more. Anyway you get the picture. I have tried all their therapies, diets, pills, vitamins and practices. With some symptoms I would experience temporary relief but then something else would get worse.
“I am very interested in learning more about your treatment. I have spent the last 13 years operating my own herb and holistic health store. However, I had to close the business this year in order to be able to take care of my husband and daughter. Is it possible to find some solutions to our health problems using your methods? We live a distance away – outside of Philadelphia but are willing to travel if treatment might offer some hope.
“I know that I must sound rather desperate to you but then perhaps my family and I are similar to many of your patients. I know that you went through a similar period in trying to find help for your son. I am determined to help my family and to keep myself as healthy as possible so that I can continue to be there for them 100% of the time.
“I look forward to your response and may God bless you and your work.”
Sincerely, Mrs. L.M.
“I have spent the last 28 years trying every conventional and alternative medical approach under the sun. Today I am an invalid on welfare. FCT® is my last hope.”
“Hello Dr Yurkovsky.
“Let me start by saying thank you for helping my dear wife H. She is a dear lady with the greatest spirit and full of love and kindness. She has persevered for over 30 years in various declining states of health. She is very compliant to the letter. As am I in helping her.
“Her title although not adequate is CFIDS, Auto immune.
“This information will contain her presentation in two ways. By chronological age and by current health status. She was born in New Jersey and lived there until approx three years old. She moved with family to California, where she lived till age 20. In California the pesticide is heavy. She actually played in the pesticide truck fog each year for a few years as a young kid.
“Even as a kid she was tired compared to others although she got straight A’s and was a cheer leader in school. They ate not well although from an affluent family. Mother did not cook much. Lots of candy available not much veggies, fruits, just packaged foods etc. At about the age of 18 her fatigue began to be noticeable. She was an airline stewardess international for a time. Air turbulence accident head trauma, sacral trauma. Immunizations standard. By age 25 was getting severe hypoglycemia, diagnosed and put on std diet at that time.
“Later found out that the Atkins diet concept seemed to stop symptoms and allowed life to be controlled again. Did an unknown at that time anti-candida diet on her own. This helped her to be able to function. She ended up long term high fat high protein, almost no veggies – just a couple – and no fruits, sugars, etc. This went on for approx 14 years.
“This takes us to Florida where she was to get her sickest. First label of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome came about then. She got swollen lymph, and hair loss, and standard flu-like symptoms that never went away. Her early years she really did not get antibiotics prescribed. But at this time, she got them then. This was at age 32 approx when all of the worst of her health breakdown really went higher.
“We met at age 34 and in two weeks got married. Two weeks approx later she got even worse. I am sure it was due to picking up my microbes.etc. Since I had finished acupuncture college and had already been involved in alternative healing for nearly ten years already we began a search of what to do to heal her. I thought it would be simple. But here we are 20 years later and it is anything but.
“What we did to help her trained me in so many systems from over the globe over the years that I would have to write a book to explain them all. I am sure the same is true for you based on what I have seen. Of course diets of every type were explored and stayed deeply in the direction of Pathological Microbiology and Immunology concepts as cause/source probability. We did intravenous hydrogen peroxide, and Deoxychlor and Chelations and Ozone and Ultra violet blood.
“We injected live cells and DNA cells and did them orally as well. We did herbs, all kinds, vitamins, all types and therapies.She did colonics, and we did DMPS and did that twice several years apart always showing high mercury and copper. She did sauna, niacin, long-term heat treatments. We did dark field German concept remedies, Sanum and San Pharma. We have done instrument work from several sources. I own many of them. We did inhaled ionized oxygen. We did injectable 20 cc amounts of Nosodes, etc . We did nearly one and a half years of Auto urine therapy. Did it injectable, oral, fast, massage.
“She at the age of 36 approx had all her metals removed from her mouth. No correct procedures done at the time except, I think, a dam maybe. But nothing else. Later on she had 6 teeth removed and now has a special non-toxic partial in the mouth although it is metal. We have too much of a long story with her dentals it is and was a nightmare to say the least. We now still have to get a better partial. But, too sick to get it done.
“Next up is current history. We have for nearly 18 years out of 21 eaten only organic, no toxic chemicals used in any form. We drink only Essentia bottled water 9.5 pH. We have filter with UV for rinsing and cooking. And we use only food grade peroxide to clean the home and our veggies etc with. I have two special test meters for EMF’s and we are in a safe place as far as we can control it. She takes a minimal amount of supplements at this time: B complex, Vit C, Cal Mg, Vit D, Vit E – that’s pretty much it now. Although we have tried many mega-vitamin therapies. Always the best money could buy vitamins, herbs, etc.
“We have done raw foods and now are doing about 60% cooked and 40% raw. We do two fresh veggie juices daily. Only Green drinks at this time. She is now in the last two years eating apples, and a little of other blood type ok fruits. But just one time daily. For many years while we pursued the illusive microbes we did no sweets, no fruits nothing off of a Candida diet. Very strict, but it got to a point where nothing made a difference so we added some foods to get more food nutrition. Long story with diet effort.
“OK, so here are her current symptoms. Sorry didn’t think this would be so long and yet I did it maybe 50%. She has entered menopause at age 49. The following things got much worse. And we tried to do standard natural pharmaceutical but she could not do them. After menopause she got very dry skin, and static electricity and severe hot flashes all to this day. Also a kind of acid reflux. She has been diagnosed to have H. pylori, etc., we have done a lot but not sure where that stands. She now has severe, severe, inflammation in the head. Scale of one to ten 9.5!! Key thing to need help with. This has been ongoing now for over a year.
“Chronic infection in bones of right side of face and head. Long term in various degrees ever since original dental surgeries. Also, upper respiratory infections. Inflammation is also in liver, etc., and in general systemic to a degree. Irritable bowel. Nausea, flu-like symptoms, fibromyalgia, weak muscles, memory loss, hair loss excessive. Hair all over the body leaving and in some area gone. Dry non productive cough. Not until this last three years have I seen emotional activity that is like crying, irritable, depressed at times but still jovial old H. as well.
“She has gotten progressively more ill as each year has past and nothing seems to work so far. We still have hope and fight left. She is a very sensitive woman and with so many things that we do she can in some instances do them for a few days depending on what it is and then she begins to react very severely by increase in all symptoms , especially the inflammation as of late. She has always been sensitive to remedies, one drop and react type. We have never done classical homeopathy, but of course German and homochord types.
“One time way back she did a 10M Solidago and it helped her so much we could not believe how much. But it did not last and did not help again. A few other things actually helped her for a few days and then stopped. One was the DMPS push, and the others were antimicrobial. She has some autoimmune, but not like typical.
“Your video was just what I needed to see. It tied into some obvious thoughts but we had no way to do them before. She spends most days in bed except to get up and walk for exercise and her world is this home. I practice out of the home in a separate office. So I can be available to do what is needed daily.
“Looking forward to seeing what you think and what we can do with you to help her.”
These somberly letters and statements, unfortunately, are reflective of the state of medicine today and are supported by official statistics. To mention only a few of them: The Office of Technology Assessment under U.S. Senate confirmed that only a meager 10-20% of all the contemporary medical interventions can be considered as safe or effective.
In the U.S. alone, the country with allegedly the most advanced medical technology, the number of chronically ill people has reached at least the 100 million mark and the rampage of cancer epidemic has no solution in sight. As many as 80% of Americans, almost the entire population, do not enjoy good health.
The new generation of American children, in majority, resembles youthful invalids consuming stockpiles of pills and addicted to food substances not meant for human consumption, rather than being a robust and healthy youth.
Many responsible conventional and alternative physicians express their concern over their inability, on the whole, to provide effective, sensible and cost-contained medical care.
The ever-growing expenditures in research, products, technology, including hyped-up discoveries and “breakthroughs” in either medicine (conventional or alternative) have completely failed to accomplish this objective.
It is becoming more obvious that Western healthcare is ill itself and that new concepts and means are necessary in order to restore its decaying body to health.
