About this title


"What in blazes am I doing here?!" ~ My first St Petersburg night was spent on a filthy train, sleeping in a cold compartment with three strangers who probably were smugglers. I was asking for it. thieves were everywhere, and tourists were a major target. They would think nothing of cutting off your finger for a gold ring, worth a year's pay... Why on earth would I want to spend a year living in the 'evil empire?" Believe me, friends and colleagues asked me that countless times.It was passion, pure and simple. A love affair with a city I first saw in 1965. Back then, she was dark, gray, ugly, and stooped under the weight of communism. But even under her slave name, Leningrad, she was still glorious.Primarily, I went to Russia for a reason you may find hard to believe. My pursuit of alternative treatments that heal was increasingly frustrated by our American medical "system." I was amazed to realize that physicians in other parts of the world -- even in Russia -- are freer to practice, research, and learn than right here in the sweet land of liberty.In particular, I knew the Russians are light-years ahead of us in their advances with light therapy -- something that always fascinated me. I wanted to learn all I could from these dedicated healers, working under such appallingly austere conditions and yet quietly accomplishing miracles of healing unmatched by the West.Actually, there were many reasons I went to St. Petersburg: The romance of Russian history; the paradox of brilliant scientists working under seemingly impossible conditions; being at ground level during tumultuous times, in a strange country that is both lovable and frustrating.In St. Petersburg Nights, I try to convey some of the mystery, majesty, hope, and beauty of this terribly abused place and tragically abused people. Please travel with me and experience the grandeur and glory of this magnificent land and its unforgettable people. - Dr. William Campbell Douglass.

About the Author:

Dr. Douglass reveals medical truths, and deceptions, often at risk of being labeled heretical. He is consumed by a passion for living a long healthy life, and wants his readers to share that passion. Their health and well-being comes first. He is anti-dogmatic, and unwavering in his dedication to improve the quality of life of his readers. He has been called "the conscience of modern medicine," a "medical maverick," and has been voted "Doctor of the Year" by the National Health Federation. His medical experiences are far reaching-from battling malaria in Central America - to fighting deadly epidemics at his own health clinic in Africa - to flying with U.S. Navy crews as a flight surgeon - to working for 10 years in emergency medicine in the United States. This dedicated physician has repeatedly gone far beyond the call of duty in his work to spread the truth about alternative therapies. For a full year, he endured economic and physical hardship to work with physicians at the Pasteur Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia, where advanced research on photoluminescence was being conducted. These learning experiences, not to mention his keen storytelling ability and wit, make Dr. Douglass' newsletters (Daily Dose and Real Health) and all of his books uniquely interesting and fun to read. He shares his no-frills, no-bull approach to health care, often amazing his readers by telling them to ignore many widely-hyped good-health practices (like staying away from red meat, avoiding coffee, and eating like a bird), and start living again by eating REAL food, taking some inexpensive supplements, and doing the pleasurable things that make life livable. Readers get all this, plus they learn how to burn fat, prevent cancer, boost libido, and so much more. And, Dr. Douglass is not afraid to challenge the latest studies that come out, and share the real story with his readers. Dr. William C. Douglass has led a colorful, rebellious, and crusading life. !

Not many physicians would dare put their professional reputations on the line as many times as this courageous healer has. A vocal opponent of "business-as-usual" medicine, Dr. Douglass has championed patients' rights and physician commitment to wellness throughout his career. Dr. Douglass comes from a distinguished family of physicians. He is the fourth generation Douglass to practice medicine, and his son is also a physician. Dr. Douglass graduated from the University of Rochester, the Miami School of Medicine, and the Naval School of Aviation and Space Medicine.
