The Original Incurable: The Gifted Village Idiot in the Holistic Medical Community

By Simon Yu, MD


Curing the Incurable by Measuring the Immeasurable”, an article I wrote, sounds like hot air with false claims until you understand acupuncture meridians. Certainly, not everybody responds to my recommendations or therapies. However, acupuncture meridian assessment can map out and evaluate your invisible energy fields to make “curing the incurable” possible when other therapies have failed.

I have also written an article for the “incurables” called, “Incurable Disease and Spontaneous Healing.” In that article, I wrote there are plenty of incurable patients but there are no incurable diseases.

When I give a lecture on cancer, I always point out that the number one reason the patient is losing the battle to their cancer is not from the lack of chemo or radiation therapy but due to the lack of knowledge and their ignorance.

Most of my patients come to see me after all the traditional medical therapies failed. They are highly motivated and looking for a second opinion for an alternative medical care. They appreciate my evaluation, advice and recommendations even if they are not willing to follow all my recommendations especially for dental work. Once in a great while, I encounter some difficult patients who come to see me and challenge me every which way. I always wonder why they came to see me.

Two months ago, I encountered a very challenging patient who inspired me to write a story for the title, “The Original Incurable: The Gifted Village Idiot in the Holistic Medical Community”. His name is Dandy Poupou (pseudo name).

Dandy is a middle aged man complaining of gaining over 100 pounds of weight over the last 15 years and of low back pain and hemorrhoids. He also has problems with managing anger and irritability. He said he used to be in perfect physical condition and that he has a superior mind with a gifted intelligence, a gifted child prodigy.

He stated that he’s been a big believer in Holistic Medicine. He hasn’t seen any medical doctors for many years. He’s been very involved in holistic medicine in the Saint Louis area.

After I checked 40 acupuncture points, I told him his main problem was coming from gallbladder meridians and he needs to start with parasite medications and gallbladder cleansing. I explained to him the disturbance of the gallbladder meridian might be the cause of his low back pain. (Gallbladder meridians have also been associated with non-specific eye problems, migraine headache, neck pain, heavy sensations in the chest, indigestion, bloating, gas, sciatic, knee pain and emotionally with anger and resentments).

An additional test, called EIS Scan, was performed. It indicated there were additional medical problems including decreased ionic movement in the frontal and temporal parts of the brain which can affect his concentration and mood.

That was the end of my first encounter with Dandy. Dandy was furious with my evaluation. He had to remind me he is a successful businessman with a gifted intelligence and my evaluation is all wrong and fraudulent. Dandy refused all my recommendations and demanded to have all his money back.

I reminded him I have spent one hour of my time to evaluate him which is not refundable. The EIS test was performed for fifty-five dollars and I spent time explaining the results to him so it is also not refundable.

In my last conversation, he gave me a 24 hour ultimatum to get his money back. Otherwise, he will sue me, write to the editor at the Healthy Planet that I am a terrible doctor, and blog on the Internet. He stated this was all for the purpose of making my life miserable. He said he will also spread this information to all his friends to make sure they cancel their appointments to see me.

I hope you, the reader, understand why I am telling you this. Dandy is truly a sick man however he doesn’t recognize that he is sick. He is sick on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. His body is toxic which creates toxic emotions which poison his judgment at the spiritual level. After all, gallbladder meridians deal with anger and resentment.

I refused his demands and refused to give in to his blackmail. I always thought that the incurables were due to lack of knowledge and their ignorance. Now, I can say the original incurables were due to lack of knowledge and their ignorance because of their distorted sense of superior intelligence and arrogance.

There are many incurable people. Dandy was more challenging than most other incurables I have encountered in many years. Every village seems to have their village idiot. Dandy Poupou is one of the original incurables, the gifted village idiot in the holistic medical community. I wish him well, however it is up to him to choose to be truly gifted or simply the gifted village idiot.
