Is Drug Free Medicine Good Medicine or Never Say “Know”
Rima E. Laibow, MD
World Council for Health Presentation May 2, 2022
Thank you for the opportunity to share my personal experience in forging one pathway toward a better way forward for health and healthcare.
The World Council correctly says, “We believe in a better way forward for world health.”
So do I and, except for the ER and the surgical suite, I am convinced the better way is virtually always drug free medicine.
Of course, drug free medicine means you have to find meaningful, safe and available options. They are available from both ancient traditions and leading-edge ones
In one form or another, that means frequency medicine working with the body, not against it. Supportive medicine strengthens enzyme systems but does not poison them. Good medicine respects symptoms as information about how the body is attempting to solve a problem while seeking the root of the problem. It is important to relieve the distress caused by the symptoms and simultaneously find and treat their root cause. Lastly, stabilizing the gains you and the patient have made is essential.
Preventive medicine uses the same concepts to strengthen the system, so it does not need to produce symptoms.
The following three concepts are central to the way I understand medicine: Consider the possibility that:
- Molecules, when not needed for structural purposes, serve as delivery systems for their biologically active cargo: their characteristic frequencies. Molecules themselves are generally responsible for adverse effects while frequencies are generally responsible for therapeutic benefits. Delivering the correct frequency in the absence of the actual molecular structure may offer significant therapeutic benefits while avoiding adverse ones.
- Our own innate frequency generation systems transmit massive amounts of information, both positive and problematic. We routinely access this data content in the EEG (brain), ECG (heart) and EMG (muscles) and can also tap into it via the voice. The information thus gained can be used for accurate diagnostic purposes and treatment guidance.
- The medical model makes meaningful healing very difficult. Although our conventional partistic diagnostic schema correlates well to its origins, it correlates poorly to actual living beings who are not, in fact, composed of isolated specialty-based systems. Quantum physics tells us we are complex, multiply integrated, dynamic, reverberating systems continually accepting and broadcasting energetic, emotional, physical, physiological and spiritual information back and forth with all of creation.
We are equally complexly reverberating internally, wave to mote to photon to cell to tissue to organ to past to present to probabilistic future. This system is suffused and modified by emotions and mediated by a biologically based brain transducer receiving information and modulating from all of this localized reverberation, of course, but also from non-local Consciousness. Information is mediated through the brain, then transduced and diversely distributed, constituting both our master control system and wider access point. Give it the information and tools to heal itself and it will. Completely.
How do urology or psychiatry or endocrinology or gynecology or gerontology help us with these complexities? If they do, I have missed it.
Why no drugs? My medical career of drug free medicine was determined by my first day in my first class in my first year of Medical School. At that time (1966) women were still very unwelcome in medicine since they were widely believed to be “taking a man’s place” and “wasting their education”. Everyone knew they were “just going to go off and have babies.”None the less, although the wall was more difficult to scale, a few of us did make it into the ranks of first year medical studies.
The first lecture after orientation was, fittingly enough, Pharmacology. Paper notebooks and pens and pencils in hand, we prepared to be enlightened as our professor glared at us and said, “Men, “ … I immediately checked and saw that he had made at least one error already….”I want you to remember that there are only side effects to drugs. All drugs work by the same mechanism: they poison enzyme systems. If you like the result, you call it a therapeutic benefit. If you don’t, you call it a side effect. But there are only side effects.”
That made absolutely no sense to me so I raised my hand and asked why, given that enzymes are the stuff of life and that there are about 35,000 enzymatic reactions in each of the 10 trillion cells of the body it helped anyone to poison them.
His answer, delivered in a lot of long words, was, in essence, “Sit down and shut up. NOW!”.
I realized “how” questions were allowed, but “why” questions were not welcome and that asking them was going to get me into a lot of trouble.
I made a vow to myself: I would find a better way. I would never knowingly harm a patient and if there were any way to protect the integrity of those precious enzyme systems, I would find it. And in the 51 years of my private practice, I have kept that vow.
A year after graduation, I got my NY State Medical License and began my private practice as a psychiatrist.
Although I was getting decent results, I knew that for most of my patients, we were just scratching the surface and never, ever, reaching a profound, pervasive, system-wide level of healing. And I wanted to know why.
Medicine holds itself out to be well organized, fundamentally scientific and therefore dispassionate, rational and evidence based. Close examination (as well as study after study) shows it to be none of those most of the time. As members of society and of the healing arts, we are systematically taught to hold a bias in favor of positive outcomes of standardized treatments. That bias, generally not well founded in data, is harmful much of the time and lethal far too often.
“Unfounded optimism tends to be the rule in medicine. A 2015 review of several dozen studies of people’s expectations from treatment, comprising data from more than 27,000 subjects, found systematic evidence of a Pollyanna Patient problem: We overestimate the value of the care that we receive and underestimate its harm.”
This same illusion is persistent and widespread among physicians, too. In ”…the most comprehensive summary to date of physician expectations [it was found that] … clinicians rarely estimated benefits and harms accurately, and tended to underestimate harms and overestimate benefits. Over-optimism has the potential to push physicians to offer, and patients to accept, more interventions than might be necessary or desirable.”
And why not? During our grueling and personality-forming training, isn’t that precisely what we are inculcated into believing and therefore, like well-programmed soldiers in the pharma-financed army in the “Fight Against Disease”, which is also the “War Against Cancer” and the “War Against Drug Abuse” and the “War Against Diabetes” and all the other “War Against”s, , , etc. we hold onto the beliefs we have been trained to hold and punished for questioning, believing in outcomes that our eyes do not see.
Medical training is, I believe a cult designed to indoctrinate the sufficiently faithful to propagate the goals and agendas of that faith.
It did not work on me and, I dare say, it did not work on many of you.
I came to Medical School virtually unprepared since I was an English Literature major and had only the barest minimum of pre-med courses. It is said that inspiration favors the prepared mind. In my case, since I was so ill-prepared, inspiration favored the naïve and unprepared mind asking “why” questions. They were, to me, far more interesting than mechanistic “how” questions.
Desperately ill patients with diagnoses of every type from around the world began to find my practice. By the time they got to me, all the easy answers, both conventional and so-called alternative, had failed. That meant I had to ask the “Why” questions in order to help them heal.
And I remembered biochemistry. Brain nutrition was obviously not an important factor, nor was toxicity. We knew that because…. Well, because we were told that we knew it.
Yet, when I went back and looked at the charts of biochemical pathways that could cover a large wall, a huge number of them involved the brain directly and inflammation secondarily.
Wait! What? Biochemistry is applied nutrition! Nutrition is applied biochemistry!
That means you might be able to impact what happens in the body via nutrition and – could it be? The brain?
If that were true, then toxicity would be important, too.
I began studying, first on my own, then through various courses, nutrition, toxic states and detoxification, functional medicine, homeopathy, magnetic devices, kinesiology, herbology, environmental medicine, ayurvedic medicine, intravenous nutrition, chelation therapy, electrical stimulation, voice analysis, hands on and hands off healing. Eventually we integrated a wide variety of frequency technologies from around the world, some through emission (Qi), some through technology (SCENAR®, TheraStim®, LBG®, NeuroBioFeedback, Voice Analysis, etc.) and some through sound, light or touch.
Each time I brought a new technology into the practice, I banged it against what I could measure and document to find out how reliable it was and what it was strongest in.
For example, when I began working with Human BioAcoustics, I was told that the voice provided diagnostic information on nutrients, toxins, and more. But could it be relied upon?
I did a voice analysis on each of 10 patients who had suspected heavy metal contamination before and after chelation treatment. I also did an evoked urinalysis before and after chelation treatment. I was looking for heavy metals in the voice analysis to correlate with the laboratory results.
The correspondence was perfect, increasing my confidence level in the technology.
And, as I applied what I was learning, my patients got better. Much better.
Still, while most patients showed remarkable results, some did not. I had to keep asking more “Why” questions.
My son began having apparent Holocaust memories at about 18 months. He was fully verbal so we knew what he was experiencing but had no explanation for his intermittent overwhelming terror.
This took me directly into the area of pre and perinatal psychology and I got training in, and began using, maternal/fetal heartbeat therapy, rebirthing and regressive techniques in my practice. Since I was trained as a medical hypnotist this was easy enough.
In some refractory cases I thought there might be deep seated traumatic links that could be accessed via hypnotic regression. Once found, the repair of the underlying matter was often quick and profound. Remember, that by now I was treating patients with every type of diagnosis.
A patient presented with PTSD related to apparent memories of alien abductions. But alien abductions were not real.
I learned, to my surprise, that the answered questions were not really answered – as I had assumed they were.
TREAT, the Center for Treatment and Research of Experienced Anomalous Trauma, a not-for-profit organization, was the result of that enquiry. Pairing with leading educational institutions for our annual meetings we offered Category 1 Continuing Medical Education Credit, published scientific proceedings and papers, trained professionals and created Citizen to Citizen international teams of scientists totally outside of government scrutiny or control.
At one of the annual scientific TREAT meetings, the first speaker was a ground-breaking neuroscientist, Jim Hart, PhD, who delivered a breathtaking paper on the effects of NeuroBioFeedback on consciousness and physiology.
I needed to know more, of course.
As soon as possible, I was at the Mind Center in Palo Alto for a week of advanced NeuroBioFeedback training. So was Maj. General Albert N. Stubblebine III (US Army). General Bert had sponsored basic research in this area as part of his Peak Performance task force. [See: http://drrimatruthreports.com/?attachment_id=30163 and http://www.GeneralBertSpeaks.com
We both understood that NeuroBioFeedback had within it the potential to become the future of medicine through teaching profound system-wide self-regulation.
We began integrating NeuroBioFeedback into my medical practice, along with all the other tools that we had at our command.
Everyone who had a positive outcome with NeuroBioFeedback (and that included virtually everyone we treated) first had a profound spontaneous emotional/spiritual/psychic event. Once that happened, whatever the problem was that they had come into treatment for literally went away. And I had no idea how it worked or, more important, why.
We enlisted the services of a distinguished French professor, Michel Bounias, to help us understand what could possibly explain these technologically mediated miracles.
11 years and nearly 50 mathematical physics publications later we knew: the vast interlinking of everything (think theoretical quantum physics) was altered by intentionality mediated focused training of the brain moving the patient from one probability state to another.
Through intentional alteration of frequencies within the transduction device, the brain, profound and choiceful alterations of reality at every level becomes possible. That, it seems to me, is very good medicine, indeed.
In closing, let me share some essential requirements for finding better ways (note the plural):
A “beginner’s mind” which assumes that asking the questions that everyone tells you have already been answered is a vital and valuable tool. Ask “Why”.
The “How” questions belong to medicine. The “Why” questions belong to healing.
Consider: if medicine’s official answers were sufficient, there would be no interesting cases left since the dogma would be adequate for all circumstances and everyone would be disease free. Clearly, they aren’t.
Symptoms are viewed by conventional medicine as enemy soldiers to be eliminated rather than valuable allies providing otherwise-hidden clues to assist us in healing by finding and correcting the underlying causes of the dis-order. Symptom relief to promote comfort and remove pain are, of course, part of human compassion and, while symptoms are valuable information, they are not to be valued in themselves.
Your heart, not just your mind, is part of the Materia Medica. Your intentionality and inner life are essential participants in the healing duet (remember quantum physics). Rational thought, which is essential, must be dispassionate, but healing must be an act of love (with boundaries firmly in place, please)

Rima E. Laibow, MD, was graduated from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (New York) in 1970. She was inspired to become a psychiatrist when she saw the amazing impact of talk therapies on severely mentally ill members of her own family. Her post-graduate training in Community. Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, plus psychoanalytic training, while interesting, was profoundly unsatisfying to her due to merely treating superficial symptoms rather than root causes (the allopathic model). This led to deep diving into causal approaches, both novel and ancient, for prevention, correction and remediation. These include frequency medicine, energy healing, Human BioAcoustics, nutrition, detoxification, chelation, NeuroBioFeedback, hypnosis, pre and perinatal psychology, re-birthing, ayurveda, homeopathy, myofascial therapies, intravenous nutrition, Holding Therapy and a variety of other options for health promotion, restoration and maintenance.
