[From HALC member Laura B]
Alternative medicine clearly has won the battle of truth about healing on the Internet during the past ten years.
So much has changed regarding alternative medicine on the Internet in the past decade. Its presence has exploded exponentially. And so has its depth of healing knowledge. (It has found many cures, when none existed before.)
Alternative medicine has “trumped” conventional drug-oriented medicine in the past decade, as far as the truth is concerned. If you perform a “simple linking search” on the Internet typing in whatever illness you may have, and precede it with the words “alternative medicine” or “integrative medicine” (without the quote marks), and then compare what you find to what conventional medicine has to offer for the very same illness, the aforementioned fact will often be clear.
Does this mean that alternative medicine is going to replace conventional drug-oriented medicine in a very big way, as it justifiably should?
It is up to the law.
Alternative vs. Governmental Medicine
Federal law in America favors ONLY conventional drug-oriented medicine at this point. (“Governmental medicine” is the appropriate term for the latter. Governmental medicine and conventional drug-oriented are synonymous, for the former mandates the latter.)
Federal law does so with its ridiculous FDA mandate that states “ONLY A DRUG can prevent, diagnose, treat, or cure ALL disease”. (Based on reality, this is nuts!)
In taking the above position, federal law is also mandating the reverse; NO NUTRIENT, NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT, ***OR*** NATURAL MEASURE is allowed to prevent, diagnose, treat, or cure ANY disease”. (Based on reality, this is nuts!)
Why does our government mandate drugs to heal, and bar nutrients, nutritional supplements, and other natural measures from healing?
In mandating drugs, federal law provides for greater drug company sales and profits, at the expense of the public’s health. (This is nuts!)
Federal law also provides close to 100,000 substantial, and fraudulently achieved, incomes. These are the incomes that drug-prescribing medical doctors make. (How many M.Ds are there? It has to be 80,000 plus, and growing, I think.)
This “opposite the truth” state of medicine is the result of corporate bribery of medical schools, corporate bribery of doctors, and corporate bribery of the law.
Many hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake here on an annual basis. And trillions of dollars over time.
There is a reason that there are 17,000 lobbyists pushing a myriad of corporate agendas in Washington, D.C. This reason is that when money buys the law, it makes corporations (and the people that own and run them) wealthier.
Of these 17,000 lobbyists, Big Pharma (the drug companies), Big Healthcare (the hospitals), Big Medicine (the doctors), and Big Health Insurance (the health insurance industry) are very well represented. Thousands of lobbyists work for these industries to bribe lawmakers, and to otherwise influence the law. (Each year these industries are spending more than they did on lobbying the year before.)
America spent 2.9 trillion dollars on healthcare as a whole in 2009, almost a fifth of our GDP (gross domestic product). No other country spends nearly as much. (It is as if “we are the sickest nation on earth”. Indeed, we are.)
This overall cost, and this ratio to GDP, would both be getting worse even if Obama’s folly in the spring of 2010 did NOT pass (health care costs have been rising more than the GDP percentage-wise for decades). Obama mandating another thirty million or so conventional health care customers via “health care reform” will push medical costs to the point that they are going to bankrupt the United States. (Many economists feel this way. I suggest the reader join the 743,000 or so persons that have watched the YouTube movie “Meltup” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb1n1X0Oqdw, and watch other videos on YouTube regarding America’s impending fiscal collapse as well.)
For this 2.9 trillion on healthcare that we spent in 2009, one in six children is now considered to be “learning disabled.” Obesity rates, cancer rates, mental illness rates, addiction rates, and physically disabled rates have all continued to increase dramatically for decades with no end in sight. New illnesses are being born that did not exist in the first half of the last century such as fibromyalgia, acid reflux disease, P.A.D. (peripheral artery disease), social anxiety disease, rampant obesity, rampant diabetes, and rampant high cholesterol. The rate of autism “has gone through the roof”. And NO cures are being found. (Only newer and more expensive drugs are being found, many of which perform no better that the out-of-patent ones that they replace.)
We, as the public, have gotten nothing for our money when it is spent on drug-mandated medicine. Drugs only “mask” (hide) one’s symptoms, while always increasing the toxic load on the body. Nutrients, nutritional supplements, and other natural measures, which can actually CURE many illnesses (physical, degenerative, and mental), are not legally allowed to do so. (This latter situation is absolutely nuts!)
What about choice? Freedom means choice. If I had to choose, I would choose that all my health care dollars be spent on alternative medical truth, and none of them would be spent on fraudulent doctors and toxic drugs. Unfortunately, Obama’s mandate of conventional medicine substantially took away our (the public’s) freedom of choice healthcare-wise, by burdening all of us individually with conventional medical costs.
Four separate times in 2010 bills were introduced at the Federal level that attempted to restrict the public’s access to nutritional supplements, affected their available potency, or unnecessarily burden the supplement industry in some way. (This is corporate bribery at work, for nutritional supplements solidly threaten entire classes of drugs.)
Currently there is a law (S. 510) working its way through the U.S. Senate that is, or can easily become, unduly restrictive of the production, growing, and/or sale of food. See http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2010/04/24/s-510-is-hissing-in-the-grass/#more-1828 for more on this. (Some portions of this proposed law are nuts!)
What The Heck Is Going On?
We are being pushed, if not often forced, to take a myriad of toxic vaccine shots from cradle to grave. (This is nuts!)
We are being over-prescribed antibiotics, which mess up gut floral health. (Gut floral health is critical to optimal human health… period.)
Our doctors are making us sicker. (This is nuts!) Big Pharma intent underlies this. (They are using their control over our government, control over medical schools, control over doctors, and fraudulent medical science to increase their customer base.)
Big Pharma and medical researchers are caught in lie after lie, and fraud after fraud. The fines they get for doing so are either non-existent or “peanuts” (in relation to their profits).
Over the years millions have died unnecessarily. (Perhaps as many as 200,000 people die each year as a result of taking doctor-prescribed or over-the-counter drugs.)
Despite all of the above, our government is STILL mandating drugs that do not cure, and disallowing nutrients that do. (Our government is clearly mandating lack of choice here.)
Our government is STILL promoting processed, irradiated, sterilized, GMO, and/or “dead” food. If S. 510 passes things will get much worse. (S. 510 is another bill that is taking away public choice.)
Our government allows us to be brainwashed by a deluge of drug company and food company ads on TV. (Incidentally, almost no other country allows direct drug ads to the consumer like we do. I for one see a great need to legally ban ALL direct-to-the-consumer drug ads.)
We are also being forced by law to be poisoned with chloride and fluoride in our water supply, with no warning of their intake dangers by any branch of our government via TV (the most efficient medium to reach the general public).
Even our drinking water reflects lack of choice, especially where fluoride is concerned.
Isn’t our government supposed to act in the best interests of the people?
I think the American public would choose to be healthy, happy, productive, and economically competitive in the world marketplace vs. unhealthy, unhappy, disabled, and bankrupt as a country.
If the American public is unable to make the above choice now, perhaps when things get worse economically the right choice will become clearer.
It should be clear to all that economic health, public health, academic achievement, and our national security are all intertwined.
One cannot have a secure nation without economic and public health, no matter how much is spent on wars overseas or on national defense.
One cannot have a high rate of academic achievement without a high rate of public health. (Spending over a half a billion dollars on a high school in LA will not help academic achievement if its pupils are eating candy bars and pizza for lunch along with a soda pop, and then taking an antidepressant, ADHD, or other psychotropic drug.)
Basic common sense applies here. One cannot have a high rate of public or economic health if much of our nation is regularly taking toxic, symptom masking drugs, while eating a diet of processed and/or junk foods at the same time. And spending a trillion or two on never ending wars is not going to help our national security if a large (and growing) portion of American youth are obese, mineral (or other essential nutrient) deficient, overly toxic, health compromised, disabled, addicted, or mentally ill.
It Is Time For Change
Governmental medicine needs to go the way of the dinosaur. It is both fraudulent and obsolete. It is bankrupting this country economically, as well as bankrupting the public health.
Governmental medicine is only benefiting one group of people; those that are becoming richer due to it.
President Obama… you were right about one thing. It is time for change.
It is time for you to change.
It is time for you, ALL career politicians on “the corporate take”, and ALL career politicians unaware of the enormous fraud of drug-mandated medicine, to be changed “out of office” via the vote when up for election.
It is time for our government policies to change, such that they do not favor the corporations over the people, and such that they cannot ever do so in the future.
And it is time for our highly touted democratic system to change. Any system of government that allows corporate lobbyists, and corporate influence, to dictate the course of law is inherently flawed. Such a system of government fosters rampant political corruption. Rampant political corruption sounds an inevitable death knell for the country being governed.
We need to amend our Constitution such that it locks out corporate influence of government, rather than allows and promotes it, as it clearly does now.
On another front… when our government can collude with corporate interests to suppress the truth that a car can run USING WATER in its fuel tank for its ONLY FUEL, AND can run with almost twice the mileage using some water split into hydrogen and oxygen as an additional fuel (to gas or diesel fuel), while starting a war over the control of oil (Iraq), something is seriously wrong with it. (See the “The Water Powered Car” at http://nutrientscure.wordpress.com/2010/08/25/the-water-powered-car/ or http://www.waterfuelcell.org/ for more on this.)
Things sure do need to change.
November is coming. Other than Ron and Rand Paul, and a few other possible exceptions such as Senator Grassley, we need to vote all the bums out. (Any legislator that did not scream “bloody murder” when the Supreme Court ruled this winter that corporations can donate any amount to any candidate they desire to during the elective process ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO GO.)
The sad truth here is that drug-oriented medicine is the biggest hoax in history bar none. No other hoax is even close in magnitude. (What Bernie Madoff did on Wall Street is “very small potatoes” compared to the fraud of modern medicine.) And due to government mandate this hoax continues to thrive; while stripping America of both its economic and public health.
America needs to decide, and decide very soon, whether it is going to let itself be enslaved by the corporations, or whether we will rise up and take our freedom back.
We need to do this before anti-supplement, anti-healthy food, and anti-freedom of speech laws are passed. If such laws are passed the job of reversing the corporate takeover of our government and our healthcare system will be considerably harder.
We also need to do this before national bankruptcy, hyperinflation, public panic, and corporate controlled martial law take over. When these things happen, change may simply be “too late”. (I strongly suggest that the reader take a long look at the website http://www.thefallofamerica.net/ and watch the free movie trailer there.)
Incidentally, now that we know that alternative medicine is better than drug-mandated governmental medicine, which is better in regard to the next choice before us? Which is better… “alternative medicine as practiced by an alternative doctor”… or “alternative medicine primarily self-applied”? The answer to this question is interesting. It may surprise you. This is going to be a blog for another day.
