Dr. Burt Berkson, MD, PhD, A Truly Magnificent Healer
Last week, I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak to a group about cancer healing in Las Cruces, New Mexico. The main reason I was fortunate was that it gave me an opportunity to meet one of the great healers. Justifiably world-famous for his unique healing talent, Dr. Burt Berkson is one of those marvelous physicians who is a true healer. He has healed lots of cancer patients in his clinic in Las Cruces. But what really sets him apart is his extensive knowledge about restoring liver function.
Some months ago, Dr. Carlos Garcia, another great MD, who is also the co-author of the latest edition of my Cancer-Free book, gave me an interesting observation. He said he was convinced that the main reason we die of cancer is what he called “liver toxemia.” The liver fails because of the overwhelming challenges thrown at it by the cancer. Thus, if you have cancer, your liver is involved to some degree. Why do you think that most natural cancer treatment centers insist that you learn to do coffee enemas regularly? It’s because the coffee is uniquely effective in cleaning out the bile ducts (where the toxins collect) in your liver.
My wife, Terry, and I had lunch with Dr. Berkson and I gave him a copy of my Cancer-Free book. He then took us on a tour of his clinic. En route, we stopped to meet his wife, his daughter, who is an attorney, and his granddaughter. At the clinic, we met his son, a doctor who works with him, his staff and several enthusiastic patients. He showed us evidence of the remarkable healing of pancreatic and other cancers he has done. In his office is a map of the world with pins on the home of his patients. He has had patients from all over the world. One wealthy man from Africa brought an entourage of 20 people and stayed in Las Cruces with them for three months while Dr. Berkson healed him.
Dr. Berkson came to my talk that night. I urged all the attendees to seek him out for help with any degenerative condition, not just cancer. After he read my book, he told me “I have read your educational book and I think it is the best discussion on the natural healing of cancer that I’ve encountered.” Needless to say, he and I are “on the same page.”
Dr. Berkson began his career as a physician by healing two people of extreme mushroom poisoning. They were declared terminal and given a couple of weeks to live. Their livers had been completely destroyed. He healed them when he discovered the remarkable effects of alpha lipoic acid (ALA). Since that experience in 1977, he has literally healed thousands of patients of all kinds of degenerative conditions, including cancer. The basis of his healing has been the administration of the alpha lipoic acid. He has since come to add low dose naltrexone (LDN) to the ALA as a complementary treatment.
If you’d like to learn more about Dr. Berkson and his expertise, the best way is to read his book called “The Alpha Lipoic Acid Breakthrough.” I just read it. His Chapter 6 on “Liver Function” is the best information on this I’ve ever seen anywhere. The book is available at Amazon.com. Please read the reviews there. One of them is from the couple he healed of their mushroom poisoning (above). You’ll be convinced. And don’t be put off by the fact it was written in 1998. Since then, Dr. Berkson (and others) have completely confirmed the important healing message in this book.
If you or a loved one has cancer, the liver is almost certainly compromised by it. It’s just a matter of degree. If I were you, I would contact Dr. Berkson for help with this issue. Very few physicians have his knowledge of how useful ALA and LDN are for restoring the liver to full function. Here is his contact information:
