FCT® Basic Level Seminar curriculum
Letter to Prospective Students
March 20, 2007
Whether you are still a student in training, a novice, or a healthcare practitioner with decades-long experience, you, like all students of FCT®, will never regret the study of this unique system. You may doubt me, of course, and go your own way, but as the years pass, you will return to the study of FCT® after becoming fed up with professional failures while expending a great deal of valuable resources, time and energy on the study of ineffective methods and the acquisition of needless technology.
The reason for this sobering statement is that there is nothing that exists in medicine today that is capable of rendering consistent and positive outcomes in as difficult and great a variety of diseases (the real litmus test of any therapy) as FCT®.
One of the many reasons is because FCT®, unlike other medical systems, bases its concepts on pertinent exact sciences which are not taught in either conventional or alternative trainings.
Why is this so important?
Because these sciences teach us fundamental models based on which we can learn how to approach and solve problems, rather than just busying ourselves with work, or, in our case working as medical practitioners, with dispensing treatments.
Would you not agree that after all, and on the final analysis, we, the healthcare practitioners, in essence carry out the problem-solving process each time we approach a patient with a medical problem? Yet very few of the millions of practitioners around the world today are cognizant of the fact that they possess neither the knowledge nor the tools to successfully implement the problem-solving process. What are the concrete and practical components of this salient point?
Here are just a few examples out of many more to be presented at the FCT® training:
I. The problem has to be addressed at its fundamental level.
By way of example, up until very recently stomach and duodenal ulcers were treated by the following means:
In conventional medicine
Antacids, H2, receptor blockers, anti-reflux drugs, drugs that are meant to promote healing of ulcerated mucosa, tranquilizers to reduce stress; procedures such as gastroscopies, laser oblation and outright open abdominal surgeries.
All sound quite impressive except for the proverbial “no end in sight” to these interventions.
In alternative medicine
Special diets, supplements/foods that are meant to balance pH, catabolic-anabolic nutrients, herbs, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals; classical homeopathy to balance vital force, traditional Chinese medicine to balance Five Elements and the meridians via acupuncture and/or herbs, complex homeopathics based on EAV or other bioresonance testing assessments, stress management, biofeedback and other mind-body techniques, and the list goes on.
Just as impressive and still without the same “end in sight.”
But then came along the Nobel prize-winning discovery that most of the ulcers are caused by the bacteria, Campylobacter Pylori, and all that was needed was a conventional seven-day course of antibiotics or, even better, 1 drop of homeopathic Campylobacter and the entire aforementioned and impressive paraphernalia on both sides has become obsolete overnight. This is the difference and reward for addressing the fundamental level of a problem!
One of the most startling discoveries you will make in the course of FCT® training is that there are practically only a handful of fundamental culprits which, directly or indirectly, cause the overwhelming majority of all chronic and acute diseases. Knowing what they are and being able to address them are crucial.
II. Next component: Meaning of a Finding.
We all know of the myriad of offending factors which are capable of inflicting chronic or acute diseases. It is not a secret that most of the practitioners are preoccupied with these factors: heavy metals, organic chemicals, bacteria, viruses, yeasts, parasites, dental foci, food and environmental allergies, vitamin/nutrient deficiencies, the afore-mentioned disturbed vital force or Five Elements/acupuncture meridians, and so on. And these all do appear equally important and do often play a role in pathogenesis.
But let us examine a concrete example:
A patient has been found to have candidiasis, parasitosis, allergies to molds, dust mites and foods; also, Lyme disease, and presence of mercury, aluminum, cadmium and arsenic. Yet, at the present time, he is in acute septic shock due to severe staphylococcal infection. What would you treat first?
The correct answer is a no-brainer akin to kicking a football into an empty net in this case because the illness is in its acute and life-threatening stage and should we not treat the staphylococcal infection first, our patient will promptly demise. But the true reason for this obvious quiz example is to highlight the significance of the meaning of a pathogenic factor in relation to the patient’s illness. The common problem in chronic diseases is that the choice of a factor on a meaning scale in relation to sustainment of disease is far less obvious or easily understood. The end results of poor choices are common failures and even deterioration of health as a consequence of the treatments.
If after recognizing these two important and common deficiencies in modern medicine, both conventional and alternative – misplaced fundamental level and meaning – you add two other salient entities: the wrong or limited diagnostic and therapeutic means, respectively, then the importance of the study of FCT® by anyone who wishes to see their patients and practice prosper becomes obvious. This statement is just the simple truth which can be verified by asking our students.
In addition, and in conclusion, at the upcoming June seminar in London I will place a particular emphasis, as never before (neither in my prior presentations nor in the history of medicine as a whole), on the key components of the problem-solving process in medicine. And, also, on the common prevalent pitfalls in the integration of knowledge and how specialties, techniques and methods remove you, the practitioner, further away from this crucial process. Moreover, each one of you will be presented with the concrete knowledge, set of skills and tools to carry this out successfully in your daily practice and on each and every patient. I also guarantee that given your dedicated efforts, it will have a tremendous impact in augmenting both your own health and that of your loved ones.
All I can say, in the end, is that if you are hungry for true knowledge – come, learn and succeed!
