Anthony William is known as the “medical medium,” who receives psychic guidance to help people understand their health challenges and illnesses and find solutions to restore health. The idea of a medical medium isn’t actually new. In the early 20th Century the famed “sleeping prophet” of Virginia Beach, Edgar Cayce, would go into a trance and channel accurate information that was often beyond the scope of any knowledge that the human Edgar Cayce personality had, in order to help people address their health challenges. Thousands of those readings were documented. Other people who use psychic means to assess and help treat people’s health concerns now often use the label “medical intuitive” to describe their healing art.
Anthony William, in his Medical Medium book, focuses on exploring a variety of health concerns that have spurred debate or mystery as to their cause and how to treat them. This includes ADHD, autism, autoimmune issues, candida, chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety, diabetes, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr virus, menopause, endocrine imbalances, migraines, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), PTSD, rheumatoid arthritis, vertigo and tinnitus, and more. Williams is not the only medium or intuitive who skillfully addresses health issues, though he has garnered more attention and promotion than most. We all have untapped intuitive abilities, so what Williams can do is not exclusive or unique to him. I have worked in the holistic health field for a number of years and studied many different materials on these subjects; I also practice some forms of intuitive energy healing myself and often see people with the various conditions that are discussed in this book, noting the psychospiritual, energetic, environmental, dietary, and lifestyle patterns that are parts of the puzzle. Thus, my review is influenced by my perspective on these issues as well as my evaluation of the quality of how the medical medium presents his insights in this book format.
In this book he tends to share some common themes that relate to health concerns, such as psychological stress, environmental toxin exposure, nutrition imbalances, and viral infections. This book looks mostly at the physical level of health to provide solutions even though it comes from a psychic medium. There is a lot of helpful and iconoclastic guidance in this book that I believe we can learn a lot from. However, there are a few flaws or misleading statements that I felt give reason to be cautious about relying totally on Anthony’s statements. At one point he implies that the “soul” resides in the brain. In reality the brain is analogous to an interface and the soul is a higher vibrational field that accesses the whole body but doesn’t reside physically within the body at all. He also gives his view on causes of conditions which are often incomplete and overly rigid explanations. They may be very useful and valid parts of the picture, but not the whole picture, and not precisely the same for everyone with the same diagnosis.
Anthony gives suggestion for herbs and foods that can help heal, which are generally very good suggestions. He is a big fan of things like blue-green algae and seaweeds, and fresh fruits and vegetables, which I also find are very helpful for many issues. Williams suggests that those seeking to overcome these health challenges avoid some common foods, especially animal foods (meat, eggs, and dairy) and major GMO foods like corn, soy, and wheat, as well as processed foods with refined oils and sugars. He even encourages people to avoid fish oil and use Omega-3 rich plant oils instead – there are reasons why this may be good advice for most people, although some people have problems in their body that block conversion of the oil from the plants into the biologically active form found in fish. The Medical Medium also presents the idea that natural sugar in fruits is not harmful for those with cancer, as the sugar comes with natural plant chemicals that work against cancer, unlike processed sugars that feed cancer without supplying anti-cancer compounds. This idea seems to fit with some popular underground cancer treatments like the baking soda with molasses or maple syrup formula and the honey with aloe formula; cancer’s affinity for sugar will theoretically draw to it the solution that attaches natural sugars to anti-cancer components. However, many natural cancer protocols discourage using fruit and many of those in this field report finding success with protocols that keep natural sugars to a minimum. This, like some other subjects discussed in this book, seems to be a complex issue that merits closer examination. Thus, I see this book as giving valuable and often novel input but not a complete guide to all of the conditions it discusses.
This book includes a detailed outline of a 28-day raw foods cleanse, as well as a set of healing meditations to help people. Williams also discusses the topic of “healing angels,” which he presents as though they are discrete external beings that can serve us when we call upon them, while I would look at them more as archetypal energy patterns and functions coming through our own higher selves that we access with our prayers, meditations, and intentions.
Some of the more insightful things he addresses are the immune system, endocrine system, and hormones – explaining how some types of hormones can suppress the immune system and how autoimmune illnesses are typically the immune system trying to address viral infections that have become embedded in our cells or tissues. He exposes how heavy metal toxins create major problems in our bodies, though he fails to specifically mention how vaccinations have become a leading source of disruption to our body systems by their creating hidden infections and heavy metal toxicity within the body via injecting viral and chemical cocktails directly into the bloodstream, especially with so many given to babies with immature immune systems.
I would definitely recommend reading what Anthony says about these various health topics, as well as the psychological and spiritual healing tips he offers. I would have liked to have seen him discuss issues more on a metaphysical and energetic level, while what he has presented is valuable and may open more people up to exploring the spiritual and energetic layer of their being once they discover that a spiritual medium is presenting valuable healing information that brings the solutions which conventional physicians have failed to provide for them. Aside from a few flaws this book is really a valuable source of information for helping people understand how to address common health issues. It exposes how many illnesses are related to a suppressed immune system, and how modern medicine often gives antibiotics or symptom suppressing treatments that further impair immune function and thus foster chronic, debilitating diseases. If you are ready to reverse those issues and restore your health then the Medical Medium may be able to assist you in helping yourself. This book is published in November 2015 by Hay House and available as a hard cover or e-book.
