About the Authors

author Martha M. Grout MD, MD(H)

Martha M. Grout, MD, MD(H)

Dr. Martha Grout obtained her A.B. degree from Radcliffe college (now merged with Harvard University) in 1966 and her M.D. degree from Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1971. For the next 25 years she served as an Emergency Physician in New York, Florida, and Arizona. She traveled the world to study with masters of medicine. She is Board Certified in Medical Acupuncture. In 1997, she moved to Arizona and obtained the Homeopathic Physician's license.

Her professional memberships include:
American Academy of Environmental Medicine
American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, Arizona Chapter, President
American Holistic Medical Association
American Medical Association
Arizona Board of Homeopathic and Integrated Medicine Examiners
Arizona Medical Association
Arizona State Board of Acupuncture, 2003-2006
International Society for Neurofeedback and Research
Institute for Functional Medicine
American Society of Clinical Oncology

She serves on the Arizona Board of Homeopathic and Integrated Medicine Examiners. She also contributes articles to medical journals.

In 2007, Dr. Grout built a "green" medical building in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she established the Southwest's most diversified integrative medical center. The Center draws upon diverse disciplines ranging from genetic testing and Chinese Medicine, to colonics and cancer treatment. The Center incorporates a wide breadth of diagnostic abilities and treatments.

Dr. Grout and her team are dedicated to the natural treatment and reversal of chronic disease.
"The Arizona legislature answered patients' demands for broader boundaries and established the Board of Homeopathic Medical Examiners in 1981. The license granted by that board allows Medical Doctors and Doctors of Osteopathy to take advanced studies and qualify (by taking an examination) to utilize approaches to medicine that often are not taught in conventional medical schools. We homeopathic physicians have the ability to practice medicine within a broader standard of care. For example, patients come to me after surgery for intravenous vitamin C and glutathione to flush out the anesthesia and speed the healing process - anesthesia is necessary but toxic and very much worth flushing out. Medical schools don't teach this, but why not? It helps patients recover much faster.

"And it's not just about the neck down. The brain and the body have enormous influence each over the other. In many cases treating both the brain and body helps the systems recover more rapidly than treating either system separately. Children with any sort of developmental delays are especially helped by neurodevelopment techniques. So, too, are head trauma patients.

"Holistic approaches to reversing chronic disease have a solid, scientific basis, although it may not be science that every allopathic physician recognizes as yet. It may be metabolic biochemistry, may be physics, quantum entanglements, the configuration of water, or it may be looking at the way our minds and thoughts affect our body's water structure, and hence everything we do. I like to look out to the horizon for new and more effective ways to solve health issues."

Mary Budinger

Mary Budinger graduated from the University of Arizona in 1976 with a BA in Mass Communications. She worked on the Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder at NBC in Los Angeles and then spent a decade as a reporter in broadcast news in northern California and Denver, Colorado. She received a Rocky Mountain Emmy award for live reporting.

She moved to Phoenix, Arizona, in 1989. She directed successful media turnaround efforts for the Arizona judicial system and Sumco (formally Sumitomo Sitix). She was part of the AT&T Wireless Services management team that launched the first digital wireless service in Arizona following deregulation, and she consulted on the preparation of an environmental application to the Arizona Corporation Commission for a merchant power plant. She served on the Board of Directors of Valley Forward and was appointed to the City of Phoenix 2001 Bond Committee.

Mary Budinger now focuses her efforts on complementary and alternative medicine. Her articles have been published in Townsend Letter and Explore! For the Professional and Health Conscious and Public Health Alert.
"I was amazed to read in 2001 that investigative reporters Jane Akre and Steve Wilson were fired from a Fox News station in Florida because they had investigated a genetically engineered growth hormone called rBGH that is given to cows to increase milk production. The reporters took their case to court, saying the station was pressured by Monsanto and the dairy industry to kill their negative report and fire them. I had heard inside stories from former news colleagues of corporate influence calling the shots in newsrooms, but this transgression was so big it made headlines itself.

"We are in the midst of a high-stakes information war to influence how we spend our dollars. For example, Wikipedia articles that are pro-health freedom or present integrative medicine perspectives are consistently gutted, removed, or vandalized, according to the Alliance for Natural Health, USA. Stifling free speech? You betcha. In Arizona, a regular MD may be disciplined by the medical board if he uses chelation for treating heart disease. The issue is not about good medicine, but about brass knuckled economic competition - stents and by-pass surgeries generate more revenue.

"Despite such information management, we live in a time of great awakening. People in China are protesting the measles vaccine. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is teaching about the pitfalls of soda, salt, and cigarette smoke while San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom rang the warning bell about cell phones. Haiti made a strong statement after the devastating 2010 earthquake by refusing bags of genetically modified seeds. Mainstream news organizations, often controlled now by owners with political agendas, may still go with the party line - the Haiti story was not widely reported, few GMO stories are widely reported in the United States - but the public has other avenues of information.

"Consumers can make good choices when they have good information in their hands. An Alphabet of Good Health in a Sick World is our gift to those who wish to see the door in the ceiling, and avoid becoming a health care industry statistic. To your health!
