Suppressing, ignoring and downright attacking research evidence of non-pharmaceutically derived, safe, usually natural and non-patentable herbs, nutrients, homeopathic and Ayurvedic remedies across a wide spectrum of health conditions including cancer, dentistry, cfs/me, depression, bodywork, immune resilience is no secret to readers of Positive Health PH Online as evidenced by countless articles and research updates published over the past almost quarter of a century.

Dana Ullman MPH CCH  in his article Extreme Bias in FTC’s Ruling on Homeopathic Medicine reproduced from GreenMedInfo LLC documents how:

“In an ongoing effort to undermine homeopathy, the FTC disregards hundreds of peer-reviewed studies and suggests that there is no scientific evidence for these safe, effective therapies...

“Despite the fact that there are over 300 clinical trials published in peer review medical journals, the US government’s Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has deemed homeopathic medicine to be unproven scientifically.  This governmental agency will now require manufacturers of homeopathic medicines to provide the following two statements in their marketing of over-the-counter homeopathic medicines: (1) there is no scientific evidence that the product works and (2) the product’s claims are based only on theories of homeopathy from the 1700s that are not accepted by most modern medical experts.

“…work of the FTC is vital for consumer protection, but it is clear that this governmental agency is ignoring important scientific evidence, and one must wonder if they are protecting Big Pharma from competition more than protecting the consumer…

“At the turn into the 20th century, George Simmons became the new President of the American Medical Association, and he devised a brilliant plan to make the AMA rich and powerful.  Simmons created the AMA’s “Seal of Approval on Drugs.”  To get this award, drug manufacturers did not require ANY evidence on safety or efficacy of drugs.  Instead, the drug-maker simply needed to divulge the ingredients of their drug (an important consumer protection) AND, more importantly, they were required to pay for advertisements in EVERY local, regional, and national AMA publications (a legal form of bribery).  This “collaboration” between the AMA and Big Pharma led to a significant increase in membership in the increasingly rich AMA, growing from 8,000 members in 1900 to over 70,000 members in 1910.”

In the article How Children on the Autistic Spectrum are Helped with Homeopathy  in PH Online Issue 239, June Sayer DHom (Med) MARH MRHom DNTh DIridol FNTP reveals:

“a lady contacted me convinced that the irritating skin condition she was suffering with was the result of a tetanus vaccine she had received and that no conventional medication had been able to offer her relief. This was a relatively easy case for me at the time since she outlined such a clear link to the administering of a vaccine and when her presenting symptoms had begun. After taking a detailed case history I prescribed the homeopathic remedy Thuja Occidentalis [3,4] with the result that her skin symptoms were completely resolved and her general health improved.”

In Ketogenic Diet, Calorie Restriction and Hyperbaric Treatment - Non-Toxic Cancer Treatment - Interview of Dr Dominic D’Agostino PhD by Dr Joseph Mercola DO

“Dr D'Agostino recently published a paper in the journal PLoS One, titled The Ketogenic Diet and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Prolong Survival in Mice with Systemic Metastatic Cancer." [1] Most people who die of cancer die from the metastatic process, rather than from the tumour itself. There's really no treatment or cure for metastatic cancer. Dr D'Agostino's team has demonstrated that the ketogenic diet by itself can extend survival in animal models of metastatic cancer, but when it's combined with hyperbaric oxygen therapy three times per week, there is an additive effect.[2]”

Numerous sad, deplorable and at time life and death situations resulting from the illegal status of cannabis and dearth of human clinical research and lack of availability of life-saving anti-tumorigenic and anti-inflammatory endocannabinoids  have been documented in the recently aired dramatic, professional, infuriating yet heart-warming docuseries The Sacred Plant hosted by John Malanca, including many of the team included in The Truth About Cancer and The Truth About Vaccines.

The Sacred Plant docuseries includes real-life stories documenting the experiences with endocannabinoids of parents with children with epilepsy, MS patients and terminally ill cancer patients having gone through surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment to experience pain relief, tumour shrinkage, even full cancer remission following use of these products. The film airs the most senior researchers internationally in countries mostly outside the USA due to the evidently erroneous and apparently politically motivated classification of harmless yet apparently clinically ‘miraculous’ cannabis as a Class I drug, even while pharmaceutical drugs and regimes with serious, even lethal side effects are routinely and legally prescribed for cancer and epileptic patients.

For more information regarding the Endocannabinoid (ECS) system, PH Online Readers are referred to the following authoritative published and referenced articles in Positive Health Issue 237: The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and Its Deficiencies: the New Science of Homeostasis by Stephen Mccamman MA  and Health Benefits of Legal Hemp Extracts: Sorting Fact from Fiction by Thomas Rowland and Tony Calamita.

The vital importance regarding the role of the physical body in attaining and maintaining optimum health is described in Cover Story How my Life has been Transformed by the FlexxiCore Challenger by Ali Lapper MBE and Fitter for Life - Stop Sitting Down so Much by Carrie Schmitz.

For the complete spectrum of health-enhancing articles, I commend Issue 239 for your further education and information.
