Philosophy

Dr. Richard Schulze is a world renowned Natural Doctor who opened his first clinic 35 years ago to help patients with incurable diseases beat all odds and here is why:

Schulze grew up in a small farming town in rural upstate New York. On one snowed-in winter's night, he was awakened by his mother frantically trying to summon a medical doctor to their home, but all the roads were closed. That night his father slowly and painfully died from a heart attack. It took him more than an hour to die and he eventually stopped breathing right in his young son's arms. Dr. Schulze was only 11-years-old. Three years later, at age 14, his mother also died of a massive heart attack. Both his parents were only 55-years-old when their lives were cut short. At the age of 16, after a year of ill health, medical doctors diagnosed Dr. Schulze with a genetic heart deformity and heart disease. The doctors told him that unless he underwent open-heart surgery, his weak and deformed heart would not be able to pump sufficient blood to an adult body and he would be dead by the age of 20. He declined to have the surgery, walked out of the hospital and instead, made it his quest to discover alternative ways to heal his heart. Over the next three years he made radical changes to his teenage lifestyle. He became a vegan, began an intensive exercise program and changed everything that went in and out of his body, mind and spirit. Schulze immersed himself in hundreds of intensive, alternative-lifestyle and natural healing programs, herbal-formulae and detoxification routines, as well as cleansing, fasting, flushing and health-building programs. After three years he returned to the same medical doctors who had told him he would die without surgery. This time they told him his heart had miraculously healed itself.

Excerpts from Dr. Richard Schulze’s 2013 book KEEP CALM and GET HEALTHY – The Philosophy and Fundamentals of Healing Disease, Naturally (pages 76 to 81):

“I did NOT have surgery and I am not just walking, I am dancing! There are plenty of people out there in the world to tell you what WON’T happen, what you CANNOT do and what is IMPOSSIBLE. I am here to tell you what CAN HAPPEN! I am here to tell you what you CAN DO! I am here to tell you what IS POSSIBLE! ...And it is far MORE than anyone can IMAGINE.”

“I have stated this many times before, in many places. I am just smart enough to know, and my ego is in check enough to admit, that I have no idea what is wrong with most people when they are dis-eased. And furthermore, I have no possible ideas how to tell, instruct, command or medically force their body to heal. On the other hand, what I do know is how to create such an amazingly healthy lifestyle and environment that surrounds the body, so that the body will get stronger and HEAL ITSELF! This is the only real and lasting healing and health. So instead of bullshitting my patients that I was some see-all, know-all, medical genius god, I instead FOCUSED on the GOOD, creating this amazingly healthy lifestyle for the body, mind and spirit and ignored their disease. That is when the healing miracles happened!
