peter - About the Author

The medical credo of the author: “The treatment of disease must be less dangerous than the disease by itself!” The author considers that there is only one goal of medicine to help people prevent and treat diseases, but that implementation can be different. Mother Nature has not created unnecessary organs. Successful treatment of biliary diseases requires a teamwork approach and practitioners of complementary or alternative medicine can be very good players in this process, especially in the early stages.
