The Government’s Real War On Natural Health

In 1994, after a lifelong aversion to politics, I ran for a seat in the US Congress out of the 29th District in Los Angeles. My platform was Health Freedom.

At the time, the FDA was raiding offices of natural practitioners, and threatening to cut off citizens’ access to a full range of nutritional supplements.

I watched a trial, if you can call it that, in downtown Los Angeles, in which the federal government was prosecuting a young man for selling, and making health claims about, a substance that occurs naturally in the body.

The defendant told the Judge he was prepared to present extensive evidence that the substance was safe and effective. The Judge refused, saying the only issue was: did the defendant violate an FDA rule? If so, he was guilty. At that point, the trial was over, and indeed, the Judge soon pronounced a verdict and the young man was led away to serve a prison sentence in a federal lockup.

At that moment, I began to construct my case against the State, and consider what Health Freedom was all about.

Let’s start here. The FDA, the CDC, and several other federal agencies have blood on their hands. This blood doesn’t wash away. On July 26, 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield, a revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, published a review in the Journal of the American Medical Association: “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”

Starfield concluded that that US medical system kills 225,000 Americans a year. That would extrapolate to 2.25 MILLION deaths per decade. I subsequently interviewed Starfield (2009), and she told me the US government has never made a significant effort to end this ongoing holocaust.

So, when the government talks about FDA rules governing safety and efficacy of treatments, they should be referring to their own crimes, since, for example, FDA-approved medicines are responsible for roughly half the 2.25 million deaths per decade.

On the other hand, natural health treatments kill virtually no one.

And here is where the situation becomes basic. The decision by a responsible adult, to manage his own health, by his own measure, and to seek out any other person to help him in that regard, is not the business of the State.

The State can license anyone it chooses to, as a health practitioner. Who cares? But there is no exclusive monopoly on healing. There is no monopoly on recovery from illness. There is no monopoly on the quality of a life.

The legal aspect of this is clear: contracts vs. licenses. The State has no Constitutional right to turn its licensing procedures into monopolies. On the other hand, two consenting adults can designate each other “patient” and “healer,” accepting full responsibility, with no future liability attached, for the outcome of their treatment-arrangement (contract).

The State has no Constitutional right to stick its nose into this business.

The State needs to clean up its own act, which is a euphemistic way of saying the State needs to stop killing 2.25 million Americans per decade. Obviously, the government front of “we can’t let people try to heal themselves apart from licensed practitioners, we must protect the people” is a piece of phony propaganda.

It’s a piece of Nanny-Mommy-Daddy State bullshit. This country wasn’t founded on the premise of the government protecting everyone everywhere all the time.

The State has no right to presume it knows, in advance, what will happen when two responsible citizens decide to engage in their own healing contract.

There’s more. If one state in the Union decided to allow this form of responsible contract in the field of healing, people from all over the country would move there—seeking freedom. As a result, the economy of that State would bloom. Other States, seeing this, would follow suit. There would be a genuine Health Freedom revolution…

And the government of the country could focus on…

Detroit Mother Challenges Totalitarian Police State By Refusing To Give Her Daughter Deadly Antipsychotic Medication
This mother should be applauded for wanting to take an alternative route given the fact that antipsychotic/psychiatric medications are so dangerous.  Not only has this been seen with Vioxx, where over 60,000 people died after the drug was cleared by the FDA, but it can also see in dozens of examples of data supplied by Dr. Breggin in his book Toxic Psychiatry, and by Dr. Brogan in her landmark book A Mind Of Your Own – The Truth About Depression.  Also, that doesn’t even begin to cover the health tyranny and police state issues also with this story, which are highly disturbing.

84-Page Report Outlines 9 Ways To Beat Antibiotic Resistance
Excerpt: Obviously, if our current antibiotics are failing, we need to come up with new ones. That’s where “better incentives” come in. Pharmaceutical companies aren’t terribly interested in developing new antibiotics because they’re not lucrative. They don’t want to make drugs that will sit in a pharmacy until a major crisis comes along. Depression, obesity, hypertension, those are the money makers.

Detroit Mother Challenges Totalitarian Police State By Refusing To Give Her Daughter Deadly Antipsychotic Medication

Maryanne Godboldo

May 29, 2016

Maryanne Godboldo, a mother from Detroit, never imagined that her decision to wean her young daughter off psychotropic drugs would result in a 10-hour long standoff with police, five days in jail and a six year legal battle with the City and Child Protective Services.

Godboldo’s horrific and painful ordeal began in 2009, after her 11-year-old daughter Ariana suffered an adverse reaction to a vaccine, according to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights.

The girl was born with a defective leg, which required amputation below the knee. Due to her disability, Godboldo homeschooled Ariana, during which time she watched her flourish in a variety of extracurricular activities, including horseback riding, swimming, dancing and piano lessons.

As she grew older, Ariana began to express interest in attending public school. Eventually her mother agreed, but Ariana suffered an adverse reaction after receiving the immunizations required by her school. Several behavioral changes ensued, “radically” changing Ariana’s personality.

Vaccine injury leads to child being drugged with psychotropic drugs

In 2010, Godboldo sought help from Detroit’s New Oakland Center, which provides mental health services to children, teens, adults and families.

imageThey quickly asserted that vaccines were not to blame, and instead prescribed the girl Risperdal, a dangerous anti-psychotic that’s heavily linked to an increased risk of death, heart problems, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, blood disorders, cognitive decline and a host of other side-effects.

Nearly 40 studies around the globe have identified dangerous health effects associated with Risperdal, an antipsychotic drug used to treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and children with autism.

Godboldo obtained a parental consent form allowing her to discontinue Ariana’s use of the drug at any time. After observing that her daughter’s condition had worsened while on the drug, she consulted with another physician who carefully helped wean Ariana off the Risperdal.

Nearly 10 months after she first saw a psychiatrist, Ariana was diagnosed with encephalitis, a vaccine-induced condition causing swelling on the brain.

When the New Oakland Center learned that Godboldo had taken her daughter off Risperdal, several therapists and child psychologists reported her to social services, which demanded that the child remain on the drug.

CPS and Detroit police illegally break into mom’s home

When Godboldo refused, social services, accompanied by the Detroit Police, issued an illegal order on March 24, 2011 to enter the family’s home and remove Ariana; a 10 hour standoff with a SWAT team ensued. Godboldo says the police refused to present the “order” they claimed to have, and, as a result, she shut the door and told them to leave.

But they didn’t. Instead, they used a crowbar to break into the home, never presenting a search warrant. Barricaded in the back of her home, Godboldo placed frantic calls to community leaders begging for help.

On March 25, she surrendered her daughter, after police and CPS workers agreed to place Ariana temporarily with a family member, promising she would not be drugged – but that turned out to be a bald-faced lie.

Health Tyranny – Chemo Child Abuse: Connecticut FORCED 17-Year Old Girl To Have Chemotherapy WITHOUT Her Consent…Now Her Cancer Is Back

Cassandra Callender
Amy Goodrich
April 27, 2016

Cassandra Callender, of Windsor Locks, Conn., was diagnosed with stage 3 or 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma when she was 17 years old. Shortly after the diagnosis in September 2014, she refused chemotherapy, and decided to look into alternative treatments to protect her body from long-term effects such as organ damage and infertility.

However, the state of Connecticut forced her into getting treatment against her own and her mother’s will. Her doctors said she would likely die without chemotherapy, and reported her case as child abuse to the Connecticut’s Department of Children and Families (DCF), who took her case to the state Superior Court.

After doctors stated that Cassandra needed the treatment, which has an 80 to 95 percent success rate, the court ruled that she was too young to decide about her own health, and forced her into getting chemotherapy. At first, Cassandra and her mother complied with the decision and went through with the treatment. After receiving two rounds of chemotherapy, however, Cassandra ran away from home, refusing any further treatment.

Unfortunately, the court intervened again, and Cassandra was removed from her mother’s home, allowing the DCF to take temporary custody and make all decisions regarding Cassandra’s medical treatments. She was forcibly hospitalized, and underwent a grueling five months of chemotherapy. [Bold Emphasis Added]

How can a state force a 17-year-old to have chemotherapy?

Cassandra fully understood what she was facing, and what the consequences of her decision could have had on her life.

“Words cannot describe what my life has become over the last few months,” she wrote in a column for The Courant. “Horrifying seems like an understatement. What I have been going through is traumatizing. Never did it cross my mind that one day I would be diagnosed with cancer.

“Whether I live 17 years or 100 years should not be anyone’s choice but mine. How long is a person actually supposed to live, and why? Who determines that? I care about the quality of my life, not just the quantity.”

However, the court ruled that she was a minor, and the DCF stated that it was their duty to act, since there was a chance she could die if the decision were left up to her and her mother.

“When experts — such as the several physicians involved in this case — tell us with certainty that a child will die as a result of leaving a decision up to a parent, then the Department has a responsibility to take action,” DCF said in a statement.

Cancer has come back

After five months of forced chemotherapy, Cassandra went into remission. However, though the state forbade her to look into alternative treatments because the chemotherapy would give her an 85 percent chance of survival, her cancer has now come back.

“Here is my ‘85% chance’ of life after chemo,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “Unfortunately I didn’t make the 85%, I fell into the 15%.”

Cassandra, now 18, is legally old enough to take matters into her own hands, and told The Associated Press that she is “moving forward with alternative treatments.”

The FDA Is A Criminal Cartel – Protecting The Drug Industry’s Monopoly While Denying Americans The Human Right Access To Natural Medicines

J.D. Heyes
April 6, 2016

The Food and Drug Administration, as we have reported in the past, is completely in the tank for Big Pharma, an industry that lavishes tens of millions of dollars on our fat-cat “leaders” in Washington, D.C., to maintain healthy profits and shut out all competition.

That includes natural remedies especially, because they’re much cheaper, work better and don’t pollute our bodies with harmful, damaging chemicals.

In recent days, Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, director of the Forensic Food Lab and author of the upcoming book Food Forensics, reported that the FDA now appears to have set its sights on the CBD industry – which produces health-promoting cannabidiol products.

“The FDA is trying to destroy the CBD industry with regulatory assaults, but the industry is pushing back (and the weight of the evidence and the science is on the side of the hemp industry). Nevertheless, the FDA is a formidable opponent and they can wage all sorts of regulatory assaults against natural substances they wish to regulate out of existence,” Adams reported, noting that no new regulations have been issued just yet, but that if the agency gets its way, they are likely to do so, which would severely hamper the CBD industry and natural medicine.

Tyrannical overreach

Like every other agency Congress refuses to rein in, the FDA is part of the massive federal bureaucracy – a sort of fourth branch of government, if you will – that writes its own rules and regulations, each of which carries a penalty for violations and each of which has the very same force of law that a legitimate act passed by Congress and signed by the president would have. And in this case, CBD is in the crosshairs of the FDA, which, says Adams, has posted “a clear statement on its own website” stating that CBDs cannot be sold as dietary supplements.

“This is a regulatory attack on hemp extracts,” he wrote. “Make no mistake: Cannabidiol is on the target radar of the FDA, and they are waging a campaign of regulatory intimidation to try to destroy the marketplace. If they get their way, they will EFFECTIVELY outlaw CBDs via regulatory assaults. Their goal is the same: destroy the CBD marketplace.”

Adams pointed out that the FDA, on its website, has already addressed the question of whether CBD can be utilized as a dietary supplement: “No. Based on available evidence, FDA has concluded that cannabidiol products are excluded from the dietary supplement definition…”

In addition, the agency has already begun sending aggressive warning letters to CBD product makers, forcing the industry to push back dramatically against the FDA’s tyrannical overreach.
