Why Herbs and Supplements Work as "Natural" Medicines

Profile in Valor with Dr. Michael Gaeta

By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH

As a practicing doctor of medicine specializing in internal medicine and cardiovascular diseases, I am largely in the professional business of prescribing medications that patients pick up at pharmacies. I have always known alternatives exists, but I have never spent time or study in the world of homeopathic, naturopathic, holistic, functional, or integrative medicine. To be honest, I don’t even know what the best term to describe this specialty. I can tell you since the onset of the pandemic and the wholesale loss of confidence in traditional allopathic medicine, patients are leaving their doctors in droves seeking naturopathic physicians and other caregivers.

I sat down with Dr Michael Gaeta who is a dietician-nutritionist, herbalist and acupuncturist with 33 years clinical experience in Chinese and functional medicine. He has trained 20,000 practitioners over the last 29 years, including a certification program and several online  courses in wholistic health, and clinical and practice success. I had met him several times at meetings and listen to him lecture. I can tell you from the very first lecture I was impressed. He is on point, evidence based, and makes this big and complicated field more manageable to understand.

Please listen to the entire didactic about natural medicine as I had him focus in on one herb at the end, Artemisinin Forte contains which contains Sweet Wormwood extract. He ranked its antimicrobial properties highest for parasites, virus, fungus, and bacteria in that order. I learned from Dr. Gaeta that Artemisinin is a phytomedicine with broad-spectrum antiviral activity. Artemisinin and its antimalarial properties were discovered by the Chinese scientist Tu Youyu, who became one of the laureates of the 2015 Nobel Prize the same year ivermectin was recognized in Stockholm.

So please enjoy this program and be sure to visit the Gaeta Institute online. There is much to learn so we can expand our home therapeutic armamentarium in readiness for future infectious disease threats.
