Natural Science Medicine signs up to The Lancet Manifesto to transform public health.

At the invitation of The Lancet, Natural Science Medicine has become a signatory to its visionary manifesto “to transform public health” and “call for a social movement to support collective public health action at all levels of society”. This manifesto comes at a time when it is widely accepted that both conventional and alternative health systems are failing to answer the problem of increasing levels of acute and chronic illnesses. It has been reported that antibiotics, within a few years, will be generally ineffective against some organisms, thereby jeopardising the recovery of patients undergoing major surgical procedures, particularly those patients who are immune-compromised.

There is also scepticism among medical professionals that the research/peer-review process of new drugs can be questionable; an advocate of peer-review commented recently on a science broadcast, that “at least a broken clock is right twice a day”. PubMed has recently launched an open forum website, PubPeer, inviting scientists to post comments on published articles “to improve research quality” and “to create improved transparency”. The rather-too-hastily introduced swine ‘flu vaccine has resulted in the requirement of the NHS to pay compensation of around £60M to the resulting victims and the latest announcement that the NHS is to ‘fast-track’ the introduction of new drugs to patients who already have life-threatening or debilitating conditions, underpins the need for us to embrace a new paradigm. Otherwise, indiscriminate use of drugs could herald the same unforeseen tragic outcomes for many patients, as there is a push from the pharmaceutical giants to market their wares.

So, what is the answer? For the last two and a half years Natural Science Medicine has been lobbying UK Health Ministers; leading universities, charities and medical professionals; NICE,  and the office of NHS Research for their help in the funding of observed clinical trials of a novel, non-invasive, drug-free, science-based medical system. This medical system has evolved over 20 years and has proven its effectiveness in clinical practices for the last two decades. It is the brainchild of Savely Yurkovsky MD, a New York based cardiologist, who has utilised the pertinent science from conventional and alternative medicine to produce a new medical paradigm, based wholly on the laws of the natural sciences. Dr Yurkovsky maintains that medicine should be founded on the pure sciences; if we were to apply the same ‘safety regulations’ that we observe in conventional medicine, to other technological industries, it puts the risk in a different context – if we were to compare the rigours applied to the advancement of the aerospace industry with those of the current medical science, we wouldn’t risk travelling by air.

Natural Science Medicine has focussed on only one aspect of Dr Yurkovsky’s work – that of the successful treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders. His paradigm is based on identifying the root causes of the condition and removing the toxicity and pathogens which provide a fertile environment for the development of this devastating condition. Aside from the emotional cost to any sufferers and their families, the socio-economic cost of autism in the UK is recognised to be in the order of £38 billion per year with education costs for an autistic child of £45,000+, per year, for primary placement and £250,000+ for placement at senior level. Almost unknown 40 years ago, rates of autism are snowballing as the toxicity of the planet increases.


With peer-reviewed evidence from observed clinical trials, this remarkable medical model can begin to address a global mounting problem. Natural Science Medicine welcomes collaboration with any organisation wishing to sponsor and participate in such a unique opportunity – that of playing an essential role in gaining broader acceptance of this model, allowing this science-based medical paradigm to become the standard approach to the medicine of the future. Now more than ever, there is an urgent need for a radical rethink on medical science.
