A typical story. (Archive in monopoly.)

Subject: A personal life changing experience: Carl Pfeiffer, MD

"... The only time I've ever seen an MD change his or her paradigm is when
they've had a personal life changing experience the way Carl Pfeiffer, MD,
PhD (my doctor) did.

Pfeiffer was as mainstream as they come before he became an orthomolecular
physician. He was a professor of Pharmacology at University of Wisconsin,
and Chief Pharmacologist at the Parke Davis Pharmaceutical Company. He was
not leading a healthy life. He was obese and had a whopping heart attack
when he was in his mid 50s from overwork and from not living healthily.

He landed in the emergency room of a hospital in Wisconsin in an oxygen
tent.

His doctor was going to put him on a drug that he had helped develop at
Parke Davis, and when faced with the prospect of actually taking it himself,
he balked, and surprised his stunned doctor by putting his foot down and
saying "No way! I'm not taking that!! I KNOW how dangerous that stuff is, I
helped develop it at Parke Davis!!" So his stunned doctor said "Well,
doctor, what do you propose then given that you're on your death bed?"
Pfeiffer said "Let me sleep on it, but I'm not taking THAT stuff, there has
GOT to be a BETTER WAY!!!"

So he slept on it. In the morning he remembered having read an article about
niacin, vitamin B-3 being a really good vasodilator that helped circulation
and was non toxic being a water soluble vitamin. He recalled that a guy in
Canada named Hoffer was an expert in using it. So he contacted Hoffer and
found out how much to take. Hoffer also recommended other nutrients
including vitamin C and the amino acid lysine. (see Rath's/Linus Pauling's
protocol for heart disease http://www.drrath.com )

Pfeiffer went on the protocol that Hoffer recommended and stunned his
doctor, and all of his medical colleagues by walking out of that hospital
under his own steam just a short time later, like a week or two later.

Feeling much better than he had in years, Pfeiffer was so deeply impressed
by what Hoffer had shown him, that he very humbly called the Canadian and
asked how he could learn what Hoffer knew about nutrition, which isn't
taught in medical school.

Hoffer referred him to his colleague Osmond who ran the New Jersey
Neuropsychiatric Institute, and Pfeiffer totally dumped his previous career,
he quit his job at Parke Davis and his job with the University, and
apprenticed himself to Osmond, making far LESS money in the process, but
Pfeiffer was one of those rare people to whom money did not matter, he
wanted to know the TRUTH, he wanted to HELP people.

After a couple of years, he had learned all he could from Osmond, and being
a genius, started his own clinic, the Princeton Brain Bio Center.

The man saved the lives of countless other people. One night, long after his
staff had gone home for the day, Pfeiffer was hunched over a patients chart.
He was in his early 80's and still working, he never even considered
retiring, people NEEDED him. He passed away while holding a pen in his hand,
trying to help someone."
