Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence,
foretold a grim scenario that has now taken shape right before
our eyes. He said:
we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come
when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship.
To restrict the art of healing to doctors and deny equal privileges
to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All
such laws are un-American and despotic."
Now, in 2012,
we are very much facing this reality, as we live in an era where
our medical freedom is increasingly under attack, and "healing"
has been replaced with "treating" disease, most often with toxic
chemicals and surgery. This drug-driven medical paradigm not only
depends on the sacrifice and, some might say, torture, of animals
in medical research, but also in many ways uses humans as sacrificial
Care is a Leading Cause of Death
nearly 4.6 million drug-related visits to emergency roomsi
in the United States in 2009, with more than half due to adverse
reactions to prescription medications – most of which were being
taken exactly as prescribedii.
The fact of the matter is, as echoed by a study released by the
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA)iii,
it is a mistake to assume there's no risk in prescribed medicines!
As Sayer Ji writes on GreenMedInfo.comiv:
"medicines" themselves are often devoid of intrinsic value, being
nothing more than rebranded and re-purposed chemicals, intended
(though all too often failing) to be administered in sub-lethal
concentrations. Indeed, many of these chemicals are too toxic
to be legally released into the environment, and should never
be administered intentionally to a human who is already sick.
You need look no farther than a typical drug package insert to
find proof that the side effects of most drugs far outnumber their
purported beneficial effects.
chemicals, in fact, are so highly leveraged against their true
value (or lack thereof), that they can sell for as much as 500,000%
percent from cost! Only medical/pharmaceutical and financial institutions
(e.g. Federal Reserve) are legally empowered to generate the illusion
that they are creating something of value out of nothing of value,
on this scale."
care is actually one of the leading causes of death in the
U.S., with medical errors, adverse drug reactions, and hospital-acquired
killing an unacceptable number of Americans each and every day!
Drug-related ER visits jumped by more than half between 2004 and
stirring health officials to look for ways to stop what has become
a near-epidemic that often ends in deathvii.
you consider that 2.7 million of those visitsviii
involved prescriptions for largely preventable health issues,
you can't help but wonder why we have strayed so far from true
health care in lieu of health treatments.
You may be
tempted to point your finger at your physician. After all, he
or she is on the "front lines" doing most of the prescribing and
advising. But whether or not doctors succeed in upholding the
Hippocratic Oath – the promise to Do No Harm – is not always entirely
in their own hands.
medical system is simply not designed to give them that freedom.
It's VITAL that you understand that regardless of their personal
opinions, many times they're simply not allowed to offer you any
other alternatives than what the "standard protocol" demands.
As written on GreenMedInfo.comix:
our present dominant medical system, healing has not simply been
forgotten but intentionally exorcized as it represents
the antithesis of perpetual profitability which requires the incurability
of the human body. Were the truth be told, and the body's self-regenerative
capabilities acknowledged, the entire superstructure of drug-based
medicine and hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue it generates
annually, would crumble overnight."

runs much deeper than your physician's office. The entire medical
system as it currently stands has been quite carefully orchestrated
to make you believe that drugs, vaccinations, screening tests,
and surgery are what is required to be well, while an assault
has been launched against natural strategies and supplements that
have proven vital to well-being for centuries.
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has launched a full-fledged
war against the sale of raw
milk, a substance that provides many natural beneficial and
healing properties, even though between 1999 and 2010
there was an average of only 42 cases of illness per year attributed
to raw milk, and that includes both "confirmed" and "presumed"
cases. Meanwhile, they have allowed livestock producers to continue
to add low doses of antibiotics to animal feed for growth promotion,
even though this practice is undeniably linked to the spread of

from the market, all while approving drugs, prescribed by doctors
every day, that kill over 125,000 Americans a year.
but one government agency that is so thoroughly enmeshed in the
drug-medical paradigm that they are utterly unable to protect
you. The American
Medical Association (AMA) has maintained a decades-long battle
against "alternative" healing traditions, dating back to the 1920s
and arguably even earlier. The courts eventually ruled in favor
of the chiropractors in 1987, finding the AMA guilty of a conspiracy
to take down the chiropractic profession, but their battle has
continued on anyway.
to Naturopathy Digest, the AMA and other medical groups
justify their opposition to natural medicine, a primary principle
of which is supporting your body's own innate healing potential,
on the basis of three areas of concernx:
of patient care
of education of medical practitioners
As the article
so eloquently points out, none of these arguments hold up, and
most are based on medical and pharmaceutical industry propaganda.
If they were TRULY concerned about patient care and safety, they
would not be targeting natural medicine, which has an incredibly
low incidence of adverse consequences and proven successes, but
instead going after their own allopathic medical practices that
are leaving a trail of death and destruction.
associations whose claims that they exist for the betterment of
public health are entirely questionable include the following:
Dental Association (ADA): Continues to support the
use of mercury fillings and demonizes biological dentists who
oppose the use of mercury in dentistry; continues to support
fluoridation, in spite of the evidence it does more harm than
Cancer Society (ACS): This charity has close ties to
the mammography industry, the cancer drug industry, and the
pesticide industry; has rampant conflicts of interest; consistently
promotes drugs and screening procedures while ignoring environmental
causes of cancer.
Cancer Institute (NCI): Has spent billions of taxpayer
dollars promoting treatments while ignoring strategies for preventing
cancer; abundant ties to the cancer drug industry (for more
information, read Samuel Epstein's new book, National Cancer
Institute and American Cancer Society: Criminal Indifference
to Cancer Prevention and Conflicts of Interest)xi
Academy of Pediatrics (AAP): Claiming to
be protecting your children, the AAP is largely funded by vaccine
manufacturers but refuses to disclose just how much money it
gets from them; partners with Congress to protect pediatricians
and drug companies from liability for vaccine injuries, while
preventing you from getting truthful vaccine information.
even the government is not at the top of the totem pole when it
comes to this attack on your ability to access natural therapies
and obtain optimal health. GreenMedInfo.com continuesxii:
the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) behave as if they are at the top of this pyramid of power
relations, they serve far lower on the hierarchy. While the government
of the United States and American corporate lobbying groups may
appear to be behind the FDA's shameless pandering to the interests
of the drug companies, transnational corporations and organizations

One of the
prime examples of this is vitamin D.
studies already show that vitamin
D could have cancer-prevention and/or treatment possibilities.
But the problem is that it's a natural substance that can't be
patented as a simple supplement, meaning there's no real revenue
in it, compared to a prescription brand drug. That's why many
drug studies involving vitamins of any kind hinge on how the FDA
defines drugs and supplements.
A drug is
defined as a product meant for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation,
treatment, or prevention of a diseasexiii.
A supplement is defined as a product that is meant to simply "supplement"
or "enhance" a normal diet within the daily allowances recommended
by the FDAxiv.
Retailers who sell supplements are not allowed to tell you that
vitamin D can possibly "prevent, mitigate or cure" cancer without
having the FDA accuse them of selling a drug that hasn't been
approved through the proper FDA process.

" … is
there any greater absurdity than a medical model that treats the
symptoms of disease with sub-lethal dosages of toxic chemicals
and in which there is no attempt to uncover, understand or remove
the causes of those imbalances?

reflux caused by a lack of proton-pump inhibitors?
disease caused by a lack of statin drugs?
caused by a lack of Fosamax?
caused by a lack of chemotherapy?
caused by a lack of Paxil?
not! Then why would anyone consider it sound practice to use potentially
toxic chemicals as a first-line treatment for conditions that
are not caused by a lack of a chemical? To the contrary many diseases
are caused exactly by culminative exposures to chemicals that
not unlike drugs are biologically alien to the body, i.e we are
treating poisoning with poisons! Can we dignify this approach
by calling it medicine? Or, is it more accurately described as
a form of sorcery?"
