PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY
Now It’s Your Turn!
For those of you who are busy and want the bottom line first, here are two important steps you can take right now to protect your health freedom:
1. Support Ron Paul’s Health Freedom Protection Act, HR 2117. Right now truthful claims are not permitted for supplements. This important legislation would change that so consumers could be informed of the benefits they can expect from supplements. Click here * to send a letter to your Congressman or woman urging them to become co-sponsors of this pro-health freedom legislation
2. Oppose/amend HR 1561, the sister legislation to the dangerous and invasive FDA Revitalization Bill, S 1082 passed by the Senate on May 9, 2007. This dangerous bill gives the FDA even more incentive and power to continue their dangerous anti-health freedom policies and approve dangerous drugs even more rapidly.

3. Click here*** to join the Citizens Petition, a legal challenge to the US policy on harmonizing with Codex standards and guidelines in preference to US regulations.
Let Me Tell You About Sally
I would like you to meet my friend, Sally. She is a fearless and tireless correspondent. When something is not right, or incorrect information comes her way, she does something about it: she uses the power of the pen (well, the computer) to tell people the health freedom side of the story. She takes the time to let people know, in her own words, what she believes in and why.
Sometimes the people she writes to dismiss what she has to say. But often they sit up, take notice of what someone they know and respect believes and begin to think about what she has socked them between the eyes with (that is her style). Here is a good example:
Sally’s friend Marie wrote to her asking her to send a letter to Congress to stop Medicaid cuts in health coverage for children, seniors, low-wage workers and people living with disabilities and HIV/AIDS. While it is true that everyone should have access to good health care, and Sally realizes that this is an important issue. Nevertheless, first and foremost, Sally is a believer in health freedom and natural health options. She knows that natural health heals while pharmaceutical health frequently kills. She also knows that the way to cut costs is to use natural health options, not leave more and more people cut off from dangerous, expensive and invasive illness care.
Here is what she took the time and care to write to her friend, Marie:
"Let me tell you, Marie, that this is not the answer to America’s health crisis! Instead of making conventional "cut, burn and poison" (surgery, chemo and Rx or over-the-counter drugs) more affordable, we should be spending the same amount of time, money and energy trying to educate Americans on HOW TO STAY HEALTHY! Educate them on how to eat just what nature produces—-NOT what man makes. To stay away from all sugar, wheat, cow’s milk, canned foods, packaged products, junk food, etc. and instead to eat organically grown produce (or to grow their own); to get sufficient exercise and sleep; to stay away from tobacco and alcohol, etc. etc. etc. We MUST stop putting fluoride and chlorine into our drinking water. They are carcinogenic and fluoride makes bones ‘harder’ but more friable, brittle, easier to break.
Oh, I know you are going to say, "that’s an elitist attitude; we can’t all afford organically grown foods!" Listen: if people stopped buying alcohol, cigarettes, canned and packaged foods and junk food or fast food,—-and instead bought deep-water fish and only organically raised meat, fowl, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, they would actually SAVE money!
Furthermore, insurance costs would go down as well as medical costs and we’d have a society of people who were happier, healthier and more affluent!
This HAS to be the future of medicine, or we are all doomed. Look at today’s incidence of cancer, heart disease, arthritis, auto-immune diseases, diabetes, obesity, etc. etc. Most of those diseases did not even EXIST 250 years ago! We ate the ANCIENT grains, for instance, not the hybridized modern ones that contain gluten! We ate corn, millet, amaranth, buckwheat, brown rice, teff and quinoa—–NOT wheat, spelt, kamut, rye, oats and barley, all of which contain GLUTEN which compromises the health of nearly everyone! We ate what we could grow or catch or hunt, without the help of pesticides, antibiotics and hormones.
Cow’s milk is meant for calves, not for humans. We are the only species on earth that drinks the milk of another species. Can you envision a giraffe nursing off of a baboon? The calcium molecules in cow’s milk are too big to be absorbed into our bones. The best sources of calcium for humans are: sea vegetables, and leafy dark green garden vegetables. Cow’s milk causes ear infections in children, juvenile diabetes, mucus conditions, intestinal problems, etc. etc. We are NOT meant to drink it! (Organic goat’s milk is chemically much closer to human milk, if human milk is not available for an infant, but we should ALL be weaned from milk by age 3!)
I haven’t taken a single drug for 42 years! Not because I haven’t been sick. I have. I have had pneumonia twice, plus the occasional cold or flu. But I used natural remedies and got well quicker and without the side-effects of drugs! I had a bad fall 3 years ago and ripped my gluteus maximus muscle and crushed the sciatic nerve. You cannot imagine the pain! I was in shock for several days. But instead of drugs, I used natural pain relief and was fine in 3 and a half weeks, instead of three doctors’ predictions of: "6 to 8 weeks flat on your back and then months of physical therapy!"
Natural therapies and remedies are generally not covered by insurance. WHY, when they are much cheaper than drugs, etc.? Could it be because the pharmaceutical companies are one of the strongest and most powerful groups in America today? Yes.
A natural lifestyle works—but more important, it is the ONLY thing that works! We should be working to educate Americans and to force the insurance companies to reward that lifestyle by paying for NATURAL remedies and preventive measures— not poisons!
Natural remedies have much better results in AIDS, Hepatitis C, Cancer, Heart disease, Arthritis, Diabetes, Obesity, Auto-Immune diseases, etc. etc. than conventional medicine does.
