IS IT POSSIBLE TO THINK MORE CLEARLY
By Dr. Megan Shields, B.S. M.D.
Drugs, toxic chemicals, pesticides and other life-hostile elements currently pervade the society in which we live. Other than choosing to live in a sealed environment, cut off from the remainder of the race, there is no way a person can avoid these toxic influences.
The magnitude of the problem cannot be overstated. Chemical elements harmful to living tissue have been found to accumulate in the human body. This has far reaching consequences: a person who was involved in taking drugs and who stopped can yet be influenced by a drug, even years later. Pesticide residues found in food accumulate in the fatty tissues of the body; factory workers inhale toxic fumes from manufacturing processes; fire fighters are exposed to the smoke of fires that can sometimes contain deadly poisons.
Customary medical procedures held no solution to this problem. Various treatments have been proffered which range from the psychiatric viewpoint of getting the person to believe that the problems he was experiencing from toxins were all in his mind, to the administration of drugs to suppress the symptoms exhibited. These treatments only serve to compound the situation.
No breakthrough was made until L. Ron Hubbard attacked this problem head on.
He found that people with histories of taking drugs had less than optimum reactions to situations in life and less success in handling their jobs and relationships. When the effects of these drugs were reduced, peoples ability to survive well was enhanced. Over the years Mr. Hubbard developed various methods of achieving a reduction of the effects of drugs.
In 1979 his researches, as described in the book, Clear Body Clear Mind (Bridge Publications), culminated in the Purification Program. This is the first and only regimen in existence that has been shown with scientific studies to reduce that level of toxic material stored in the body, and to do so safely and without the administration of other drugs.
L. Ron Hubbard claimed no medical results of his work; his intentions were to make it possible for people to achieve future mental and spiritual improvement. However, the Purification Program has been extremely broad applications, as all truly basic discoveries do.
In the course of my work, I have had the opportunity to observe firsthand the results of the Purification program, and have found them to be nothing less than miraculous. The people I have put through the program include patients with minor effects of residual toxins, people who were exposed to toxic chemicals on the job, casual drug users and long-term heavy drug users with bodies ravaged from the effects of those drugs. The depression, hopelessness and fear which often accompany such problems were also evident in many of these patients. Upon completion of the Purification program, these people were changed, both physically and mentally.
The common theme expressed by people who have completed the program is that they are no longer encumbered by chemicals which were shutting off their lives. The express increased mental clarity and new hope for the future. Their lives upon completion of the program are happier, healthier and more productive.
Since the release of this program in 1979, tens of thousands of people have completed it. I have had the privilege of being able to use the program in my own practice, helping people who otherwise would have no hope of being able to recover from the effects of drug and toxic residuals. In review of the increasing presence of toxic chemicals in industry, the proliferation of toxic waste and pollution and the epidemic use of destructive drugs at all levels of society, the importance of the Purification program, not only to the medical profession but to the society as a whole, becomes immediately apparent.
The purification program developed by L. Ron Hubbard is the only procedure of its kind and it is the only detoxification program that actually works. The program is one of the major discoveries of our time. It is also one of the most vital actions that must be done to salvage the civilizations that is dying from the devastating effects of drugs and toxins.
Megan Shields is a Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine who practices as a medical doctor in Los Angeles, California. She has administered the delivery of L. Ron Hubbards Purification Program to over three thousand people in the course of her practice. She has also participated in independent scientific studies of the efficacy of the program.
