What can we do?
In order to bring this matter forward, by filing the Motion to Reconsider and then, if that is rejected, a full appeal, we need to raise needed legal expense funds. None of the companies that make the NonMedical Devices Formerly Known as Holistic Ear Candles (FDA says they cannot be called anything that uses the words “ear” or “candle” or “holistic”) is a big company; all are small family businesses. While they cannot afford the costs of fighting the Federal Government in its own courts, they can offer you a gift of 6 Ear Candles (our use of the term “Ear Candles” herein should be considered short-hand for said NonMedical Devices Formerly Known as Holistic Ear Candles). So PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY!

JUDGE THROWS EAR CANDLE CASE OUT OF COURT:
“TARGET EAR CANDLE COMPANIES HAVE NO STANDING TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST BEING PUT OUT OF BUSINESS”
Our employee, the FDA is, once again, wreaking havoc and terror on you and me – on We the People!
Having declared Ear Candles a Medical Device, the Fraud and Death Administration then stated that under no circumstances could Ear Candles ever be APPROVED as a Medical Device and issued “Cease and Desist” orders against the manufacture or sale of Ear Candles.
Whether or not you use Ear Candles, it is clear that this assault on a safe, time-honored and danger-free modality is the first in a new campaign of terror –yes, terror – against the manufacturers, marketers and consumers of anything but dangerous, expensive and easily replaced pharmaceuticals.
FDA is vigorously attacking Ear Candle Manufacturers while, for example, supporting Pfizer and reversing the FDA position on antibiotics: Pfizer new vaccine “for” ear infections killed 4 more children in Japan shortly before the Tsunami. AMA has reversed their long held, science based position against antibiotics in ear infections and now are claiming that antibiotics “cure” ear infections despite the lack of clinical evidence to suggest that it is true. The press, however, is not touting this “breakthrough”.
Although claims are sharply prohibited by FDA in this war of terror, the truth as Dr. Laibow and other holistic practitioners know from their clinical experience is that Ear Candles have a significant efficacy rate in ear infections. None of the companies adopt this position, of course.
And the Supreme Court tells us, in the leading case of Thompson vs Western States (535 U.S. 357, 2002) that –
“If the First Amendment means anything, it means that regulating speech must be a last – not first – resort … We have previously rejected the notion that the Government has an interest in preventing the dissemination of truthful commercial information in order to prevent members of the public from making bad decisions with the information… Even if the Government did argue that it had an interest in preventing misleading advertisements, this interest could be satisfied by the far less restrictive alternative of requiring … a warning that the [device] had not undergone FDA testing and that its risks were unknown.”
This nonmedical device example is just one in a long, long line of shameful distortions and persecutions of natural products health and wellness manufacturers and those who disseminate and purvey the information about what they are and how to work with them. Because Ear Candles are less known than other modalities like, for example, Chelation therapy or Vitamin C drips for treatment of cancer, we believe that the FDA sees them as a good place to start this new assault. The strategy is to declare them untested medical devices and then prevent them from being made or sold through Cease and Desist orders without taking a final action. It is this lack of final action which the Judge says prevents the companies from having standing to defend themselves.
We believe that if we do not file a successful appeal, we, the health freedom community, will see a blizzard of these Cease and Desist orders, none of them final action, but all of them definitive: “Keep making the product, or selling it, and go to jail.”
We have no choice but to fight as long as it takes to stop the FDA. Ear Candles are the tip of the iceberg: fighting and winning the Ear Candle issue is identical to fighting and winning a major portion of the health freedom battle: the right to decide what methods you use to gain and maintain health.

We know it’s really hard out in America right now. We know you are working hard just to make ends meet. We know how all your expenses have been going up; we buy groceries too. Frankly, there is no one else to whom we can turn for the resources to make a difference. So it is up to you.
How important is the fight? What do you care about some holistic device?
What we can tell you is, this FDA “cease and desist” order to these companies sets a precedent, a dangerous one… But, we can Push Back through the courts and seek redress of grievances that can protect all of our access to natural means to achieve and maintain health.
