Three short, hard-hitting video reports from Dr. Rima at Codex meeting:
Report Number 1: Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) Another Codex trick: set nutritional levels so low that everyone will be in chronic nutritional deficit – and think that it is normal. How? By food labels which teaches consumers that the daily levels are “normal intake levels” when, in fact, they are designed to have no impact on anyone, no matter how sensitive. This connects directly to S. 510, the Food Fascism Bill, and S. 3218, the Wall Street Reform Bill that contains language which can kill dietary supplements through hostile regulation. 5 minutes, 7 seconds.
Report Number 2: US wants to prevent labeling of GMOs anywhere in the world! More on health claims and NRVs. 9 minutes, 57 seconds
Report Number 3: Degrading Organic standards. What can you do about it? Plenty. Watch the video and take the Action Steps. 9 minutes, 45 seconds http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=5276
Cognitive Enhancement Nutrients
Cognitive Enhancement Nutrition: Empower Your Mind!
Dr. Rima and Gen. Bert love these leading-edge products…
Control your own mind! Feed your brain what it needs for discernment and acuity…
“These are the times that try men’s souls…” Are you ready?
Nano Silver and Mold
Is Killer Mold the Next Big Thing? The next pandemic panic? And is Nano Silver the Antidote? We are keeping a close eye on the potential for a pandemic mold, Cryptococcus gattii, possibly spotted in the north west. Some researchers are concerned that this infectious mold, with a fifty percent fatality rate, is another example of a weaponized pathogen that has been released, intentionally or not, into the public. If this mold responds to biological terrain including nano silver, silver may be a very useful nutrient to have on hand!

1. WE ARE AT CODEX – GMO SHOWDOWN!
[Dr. Rima and Gen. Bert are at the Codex meeting in Canada, this week, starting with workshops and discussion groups. Please support this important trip HERE. Dr. Rima is posting daily video reports over the next few days, so remember to check our homepage, www.healthfreedomusa.org often!]
There is a GMO showdown occuring at the Codex Committee on Food Labeling. But from the actions of the US delegation, you wouldn’t know it, since they do not want the phrase “Genetically Modified” in the title of the Codex guideline document that is supposed to address labeling GMO products, and GMO-Free products. Dr. Rima reviews the curious goings-on at the meeting, in her “blow by blow” video reports at http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=5276
The United States is vigorously pursuing its policy to prevent the labeling or identification of GMOs (or GMO-Free) anywhere in the world. That means that no one on this planet will be able to protect self or family from the dangers of GMO plants or animals. No one will ever be able to determine that the fact that they cannot have children is due to the GMO food they have been eating, unknowingly. Or their Cancer, or their Lupus, or the death of their babies. Without detailed traceability, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Jains and others whose religion teaches that the must not eat certain foods will ever again be able to determine that they have avoided the foods that will make them religiously impure.
Organic will cease to have any meaning whatsoever and all food will be contaminated, given sufficient time.
This is what is at stake at the Codex committee meeting beginning this weekend. Codex is the battleground for the future of food — will the pro-GMO Globalist Agenda prevail, or will enough nations stand up for their traditional agriculture and customs and refuse to engage in a false “consensus” that benefits only the Bigs — Big AgBiz, Big Pharma, Big Finance and Big Govt?
The United States FDA approves GMO foods and feeds without any safety testing of significance. Early on in the process of releasing GMOs, the company which owns the patented gene provides the FDA with whatever edited data it chooses to show that the organism is “safe”, no matter how weak, contrived or meaningless that data may be.
No further safety testing is carried out by the FDA, nor are further safety data reviewed, if they exist.
But, in the largest involuntary human experiment ever conducted, with zero informed consent possible, the world’s food, as it comes through the US food system, its seed system and its feed system, is contaminated with unlabeled, un-traceable GMOs. Any long term (or, for that matter, short term) effects will never be known because who is eating what GMO gene, promoter virus or bacterial marker sequence is totally unknowable. This is the effect of FDA refusing to require “truthful and not misleading” GMO labeling. In deed, the agency, in a true display of the arrogance of power, believes it has authority to censor even “GMO Free” labels!

2. Waxman’s Bill Threatens to Kill Dietary Supplements Through Hostile Regulation. Thousands Have eMailed Their Senators! We Need Millions!
The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 (H.R. 4173), just adopted by the House of Representatives (and sent to the Senate as S.3217) includes language giving more power to the Federal Trade Commission to make general rules for interstate commerce that could be used to restrict truthful information about dietary supplements, by requiring expensive, “drug company” level clinical trials before vitamin companies could make claims about their products. This “reform” could hand-over the natural products industry to Big Pharma, which, over the past few years, has bought up most of the larger vitamin companies. The new rules could become a “barrier against entry” driving many smaller companies out of business.
We address this issue in a new Action Item telling the Senate to provide protective language for natural products which do not need the same level of substantiation (called “significant scientific agreement”) that drugs should require for public safety. The existing commercial standard of “competent and reliable scientific evidence” allows natural product marketers to rely on published literature and small-scale clinical studies appropriate for food products. As we have been warning, the attacks on Natural Solutions will continue and will escalate. BUT, YOUR CONTINUED PUSH BACK WILL PROTECT YOUR RIGHT TO ACCESS NATURAL SOLUTIONS!
THREE Weeks and Holding: Food Fascism on the Ropes?
S.510 STILL has not made it to the floor of the Senate this week! Your continued PUSH BACK is still holding it off. Please read below and TAKE THE ACTION ITEM AGAIN! We must continue to inundate the Senate with emails to stop this travesty!
Rumor in DC is that the forced-industrialization of food production bill, S.510, will come to a vote in the Senate this week or next week. If you value local, natural food production, NOW is the time to act! Please use this Action Item and send the message to the Senate: “NO FAKE FOOD SAFETY BILL”. Demand strong, unequivocal protection for local, natural food production! Please forward this message to everyone you know and ask them to act too!
Two critically important action steps to take:
 CALL your US Senators’ offices; Just dial 800-828-0498 and make a call registering your strongly negative opinion of S. 510! If not now, when? For 9 “talking points” about why the bill is as bad as we’ve described it, see – http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=5205

 Cognitive Enhancement Nutrition: Empower Your Mind!
Dr. Rima and Gen. Bert love these leading-edge products…
Control your own mind! Feed your brain what it needs for discernment and acuity…
“These are the times that try men’s souls…” Are you ready?
You know there is a battle going on for your mind (or maybe against it!). Part of the Globalist Agenda to reduce human population and restrict our freedoms goes on in our own heads, as we are subjected to a level of propaganda that can only be termed “mind controlling.” Its success depends on making sure that we are dumb, dull, deluded and distracted….
Let me quote General Bert, “‘Focus and clarity’ were the words Ralph used to describe the Cognitive Enhancement nutrients, and that is exactly what I experienced. Both my long and short term memory are enhanced by these products and my thinking processes are noticeably sharper. I am very impressed and intend to continue using them.”
There are numerous smart nutrients, but few of them, working synergistic ally, have the capability of doing what these products actually do. In this battle to take back our food, our health and our freedoms, we must all be as mentally sharp as possible. That is why the genocidal elitists want us under-nourished and unable to think. I was so impressed with these products that I immediately began to study them and their impact. I researched the ingredients and am satisfied that there is no indicia of a lack safety when used as directed. That’s when I decided to create combination packs that would support mental function without agitating; would enhance cognition without later let-down.
Is Killer Mold the Next Big Thing? Then next pandemic panic? And is Nano Silver the Antidote? We are keeping a close eye on the potential for a pandemic mold, cryptococcus gattii, possibly spotted in the north west. Some researchers are concerned that this infectious mold, with a fifty percent fatality rate, is another example of a weaponized pathogen that has been released, intentionally or not, into the public. If this mold responds to biological terain including nano silver, silver may be a very useful nutrient to have on hand!
And this from the Sorcha Faal [who may be a Russian disinformation agent, US disinformation agent or the 79th Mother Superior of a mysterious Sisterhood… take your pick!]: “…Most important to note about [“ex”-Nazi scientist] Schaefer’s adoptive daughter Rebeca, these reports continue, is that she is one of the World’s leading researchers into the tropical fungus ‘cryptococcus gattii’, specifically its bio-engineering into a ‘weapons format’, and which makes her the ‘main suspect’ in the unleashing of this most dangerous Nazi ‘germ weapon’ upon North America during the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, and which to date has killed over 23 people, thousands of animals, and has spread from its ‘release point’ in Canada’s British Colombia and is now reported invading the United States largest State of California…”
To beat back the phony “Food Safety”[sic] bill, S. 510, designed to end access to clean, healthy food and “HARMonize” us with Codex by industrializing all food production in the US. This week’s “amendments” are not enough! Now is the time to push even harder!
 GMOs are Not Tested for Safety. Science Shows They Are Dangerous.
To take the Health Keeper’s Oath and make it very clear that you will not be swept up into the misuse of medical and allied personnel in the coming health tyranny, either as uniformed Ready Reserve or as non uniformed health personnel.
 HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Asked the Press to Violate the First Amendment, Violating Her Oath of Office to Defend the Constitution of the United States. She Should Be Removed Immediately.
To demand the removal, through either resignation or impeachment, of HHS Secretary Sebelius, who not only presides over one of the most corrupt federal agencies in history, but asked the press to suppress our constitutionally guaranteed right to free speech concerning vaccines, autism, mercury and damage to ourselves and our children.

This IS what being a Mouse Warrior is about: Using the power of the internet to make our voices ring with the resonance of freedom.
Health Freedom is the most basic freedom of all. It is the necessary condition upon which our ability to pursue Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness rests and is the precondition upon which all other rights rest. Yet Industry has forged a cozy relationship with US Policy and Regulatory Makers so that their rights, not ours, are being cared for while natural options are attacked.
Effective, inexpensive and safe natural cures exist in other countries for diseases that we suffer and die from needlessly because our Health Freedom is compromised. Emphasizing and supporting those natural strategies will reduce our health care costs significantly while increasing our health and wellness. Clean, unadulterated, clearly labeled food is attacked while dangerous, degraded food is permitted by food standards which make us the least healthy country in the developed world. Dangerous drugs and vaccines, sometimes on a mandatory basis, are supported while natural supplements, herbs and treatments are attacked.
Free men and women have control over what happens to their bodies and those of their children. Without that autonomy and control, our very bodies do not belong to us. Our Medical Records are no longer ours and if they are invaded, our doctors may not tell us that they have been searched or the information in them mined and sold unless they commit a felony offense.
Federal and State agencies knowingly allow our food, injections and drugs to be contaminated with dangerous or deadly substances/processed by techniques known to create disease, yet they permit that contamination at the request of the industries to which they are beholden. Personal and professional conflicts of interest are condoned and acknowledged inside government and academia. The consequences are unsafe food and drugs. Agency thugs, regulatory assault and cover-ups routinely attack safe and natural sources including health food stores, clinics and advanced practitioners.
Dangerous drugs and vaccines are routinely approved while manufacturers are protected from any type of liability no matter how many people they harm or kill, protected by both the Courts and Congress.
Because of commercial interests, FDA and other agencies intervene to curtail true and accurate information about natural health choices, increasingly forbid access to natural health options and brutally attack those who make such information, products and care available.
Clean, unadulterated food is the single most effective economic competitor to pharmaceutical medicine. US Policy permits adulteration and unhealthy food in every sector while it consistently degrades Organic standards to suit industry tastes.
Although more than 80% of us in the US distrust and want to avoid genetically modified foods (“GM”, “GMO” or “Franken Food”), US policy literally forbids labeling food for its GMO content. Silently, these unwholesome, bioengineered foods have entered more than 85% of the US food supply and are being permitted to genetically contaminate all other crops, including organic ones regardless of the dangers which are increasingly well documented.
International science shows that GMOs cause sterility and immune dysfunction: the US unscientifically prohibits any government review of testing, literally forcing Franken Foods down our throats while it declares that GMO foods are “substantially equivalent” to unmodified foods. Environmental degradation is permanent and cataclysmic.
US Policy permits up to 10% GMO contamination in so-called Organic food; international regulation permits no more than 1% GMO contamination.
Health Freedom means that all GMO food is labeled clearly and we can choose GMO-free food if we wish. It also means that scientific analysis of all GMO foods is rapidly undertaken during a 10-year period of total moratorium on all GMO crops or animals.
Health Freedom means that unhealthy and untested food processing procedures like spraying meats with viruses is forbidden or food so treated is clearly labeled.
Health Freedom means that consumers, scientists, nutritionists and environmental medicine specialists who have no conflicts of interest direct, oversee and assess food and health policy in the US.
Health Freedom means that all international health regulatory participation by the US is also under the control of consumers, scientists and physicians free of any conflicts of interest.
Health Freedom means that the corrupt and often deadly FDA is fully divested of its Food Regulatory Authority since its ability to regulate food is compromised by its financial conflicts of interest with the pharmaceutical, biotech and commercial agriculture industries.
Health Freedom means that neither you nor your children can be subjected to “Treatments”, drugs, chipping or injections to which you do not agree. Current US Federal and State laws permit forcible drugging, including injections, of both children and adults and must be changed to allow personal choice in keeping with well-established international principles such as the UN Declaration of Human Rights and the Helsinki Declaration.
Health Freedom means that your Constitutional First Amendment Rights to Free Speech are fully protected and that you are able to access science-based, true and accurate information about the health benefits of food, supplements, herbs, frequency/energy medicine and a host of other health strategies which compete with industry interests, but which might serve you very well.
Health Freedom means that you are free to seek out and receive services from health care practitioners of your own choice in the US who use treatments or strategies which you, and they, agree on in an open climate. It means that neither you nor they are subjected to government attack because the treatment they offer you is not pouring money into Big Pharmaâ€™s coffers.
Health Freedom means that you can purchase food, supplements, herbs, and health devices which are accurately labeled, free of dangers without government interference.
Health Freedom means that if drugs or devices harm you, you are free to seek appropriate redress since drug and vaccine companies are forced out from behind the protective screen which Congress, FDA/USDA/FTC/EPA, etc. and the Courts have set up to free them from all liability responsibility to you and your loved ones no matter what their products have done to you.
Health Freedom means that treatments and cures for diseases like cancer, arthritis, heart disease, and similar serious problems are easily and openly available so you do not need to travel to other countries for the treatments you want.
Health Freedom means that insurers recognize and pay for natural treatments and therapies of your choice, saving them, and you, enormous amounts of money if that is your choice.
Health Freedom means that the use of dangerous, ineffective, but profitable drugs and vaccines may be your choice, but cannot be forced upon you or your children under any circumstances.
Health Freedom means that you and your children cannot be denied access to education or other public resources if you do not agree to be medicated or vaccinated.
Health Freedom means that informed consent cannot be waived and that children in foster care and prisoners may not be used for drug and pesticide experimentation.
Health Freedom means that if you want to drink raw milk, or eat bitter almonds, use Black Salve, or other non-drug, leading edge, ancient or innovative health strategies you may do so openly and without fear of reprisal.
Health Freedom means that REAL organic farming, not fake organic farming with standards so degraded that the designation means nothing, is supported and family farms are encouraged to produce the highest quality food by states and the federal agencies which impact food production.
Health Freedom means that State and Federal Law is changed so that the makers of GMO crops which invade non-GMO farms are liable for criminal trespass and other serious crimes.
Health Freedom means that if food is irradiated or subjected to other â€œtreatmentsâ€ and contamination (including pesticides, antibiotics given to animals, herbicides, fungicides, fluoridation or other potentially or conclusively harmful treatment) that fact must be clearly indicated on the label.
Health Freedom means that we can expect that food animals to be raised and slaughtered humanely, fed wholesome diets in sanitary, suitable environments without the use of antibiotics and other dangerous drugs so that food in America is once again clean, wholesome and health-giving or clearly labeled to indicate that it does not meet these standards.
Health Freedom means that your medical records are totally private and the only people who can access them are those to whom you give specific, written permission.
Health Freedom means that the protection offered to supplements and herbs under the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA) which treats these products as foods must be enforced and extended to other health products.
Health Freedom means that the regulatory agencies of the US, and their participation in international regulatory bodies like Codex Alimentarius, must be consumer and scientist led, with industry barred from US participation in their deliberations or decisions.
In short, health freedom means that US food and healthcare policy gives Americans the right, information and opportunity to learn, select, practice and offer natural health and healing strategies supported by their government, not opposed by it.
Health Freedom IS Our First Freedom: We must have the right to determine what happens to our own bodies and those of our children.

Maj. Gen. Albert N. Stubblebine III (USA, Ret)
President, Natural Solutions Foundation
The new year starts with an important strategic development for Health Freedom. Your last minute efforts on New Years Eve pushed Health Freedom into the top three Health Care issues on Change.org, a web site which apparently may truly function as a direct channel to the President-elect. Responding to a request from Natural Solutions Foundation to make your voice heard, enough people went to the Health Freedom page from our site to vote our issue, Health Freedom, into third place and therefore into the second, and final, round of voting. Top ranked issues on Change.org will be presented to the new President on Inauguration Day. Health Freedom deserves to be Item Number 1 on the Issues List since Natural Solutions Foundation and you know that Health Freedom is Our First Freedom.
More information about this extraordinary development follows below in this Health Freedom Action eAlert. Please read it carefully and be prepared for action. We need you to be ready to act, since voting in Round Two of the Change.org’s pole is limited to January 5th through 15th. We’ll ask you to vote and ask you to share the opportunity with every single person on your list. We want Health Freedom to be the Number 1 Freedom issue presented to President Obama, and we want to be the presenters so that we know exactly what is being said… and YOU can make that happen.
One aspect of Health Freedom is controlling and reformatting the FDA. There is no Health Freedom with Industry at the helm of our Food and Health regulatory agencies. “Kathy’s Corner” focuses on how we need to organize to Divest the FDA of its food regulatory authority while Counsel Fucetola’s “Legal Eagle” section tells you about some of our preparatory work for that effort. “Dr. Rima’s Recommendations” are exactly the sort of important health options that the FDA and Big Pharma want to make illegal for each of us. Health Freedom IS the number one issue confronting us. We need to make sure that the new Administration hears that from our collective awareness of that truth. So your Change.org votes can, indeed, set the stage for a new day for Health Freedom.
Ralph Fucetola, JD
Council and Trustee, Natural Solutions Foundation Legal Eagle
I’m particularly excited about the potential for change we have in promoting health freedom with the New Administration and Congress this year. They have the opportunity to show that their rhetoric for change has substance: we will give them the format to work with.
It’s certainly going to be a year of legal changes, and we’re ready. I’m currently working on proposed legislation divesting the FDA of its food regulatory authority. This important bill, which we will present to our friends in Congress, will give them the language and information they need to bring our food out of the shadow of Big Pharma, Big Biotechna, Big Chema, Big Biotechna and Big Govt and into the light of healthy food production and regulation. Our goal is to have a bill introduced in the New Congress which will move us forward with the Natural Solutions Foundation’s 2009 Legislative Goal of Divesting the FDA of its Food Regulatory Authority.
Check the Health Freedom Blog at www.HealthFreedomUSA.org – I’ll be posting the draft legislation there shortly.
Health Freedom Action eAlert Here Comes Health Freedom: Change.org – Round 2
What a great way to start the New Year! Thanks to all you Mouse Warriors out there, we have wonderful news from Change.org —
“This idea [Health Freedom – Dr. Rima] finished in 3rd Place in the Health Care category and has therefore qualified for the final round. Final round voting will run from January 5th – 15th, and voting totals will be reset at zero for all qualifying ideas to ensure an equal playing field.”
The Top 3 Ideas in Health Care on Change.org Were:
Free Single Payer Health Care #2159
Fully Fund Medicaid Waivers for the Developmentally Disabled #1804
Health Freedom #1694
But something strange happened on the way to this initial victory. We were the only Health Freedom organization to take advantage of the opportunity. On December 30, we asked you, along with all of your friends, to vote for Health Freedom at Change.org so that Health Freedom could be one of the 10 ideas presented on inauguration day to the new President.
You voted and got us into third place in a little over 24 hours. We went from 98th place to 3rd place, enough to get us into the second round. But something strange happened on the way to this initial victory. In the final hours of voting, leading up to midnight, December 31st, suddenly competing “Health Freedom pages” suddenly began showing up in the Health Care category. This flurry of December 31 page entries is unprecedented elsewhere on the Change.org system. For example, in Domestic Poverty, 45 Votes were recorded on Dec 31 @ 06:35AM PST for a single item. Interestingly, that item was the only December 31 entry in its category. Keep reading to find out why that flurry of “Health Freedom” pages is so significant!
Real Health Freedom advocates are activated and motivated: 10,644 people visited the page for which I asked you to vote by using our links. I suspect many of you were confused by the voting procedure – I know that I was and it took me some time to figure it out. Imagine what would have happened if we had all voted for a single idea: Health Freedom is our First Freedom! It would be far and away the winner in all categories.
What’s Right with Health Freedom? You!
What’s Wrong with Health Freedom? Keep Reading
The people who think that the most important thing is to defeat or damage the rest of the health freedom team so they get to be more important [or even worse motivations] are a serious problem to your health freedom. What happened at Change.org during this vote is a perfect example and we need to change it.
You probably know that there are irrational and irrelevant attacks on people in the health freedom movement – including us – by people with a variety of motivations. You also know that Natural Solutions Foundation does not attack anyone, ever. If anyone thinks that these attacks help anyone except the egos of the attackers and the other side, think again.
Here is a perfect example:
Our December 30 call blast asking you to go to www.Change.org and vote for Health Freedom as a major issue for the Obama Administration to consider was done with great seriousness. To get from where Health Freedom was at that point (98th place) to ranking in the first 3, we needed about 1200+ votes.
The Health Freedom page which we asked you to go to so you could vote had our organization listed as well as three others: we did not put up a page with only our organization because the issue is not us, it is Health Freedom for all of us. In other words, it’s about scoring a Health Freedom victory, not taking possession of territory. None the less, other people supposedly in the health freedom movement seem to have tried (but failed!) to stop YOU from claiming YOUR victory.
We garnered a total of 1804 votes in less than 24 hours, putting us in third place and putting us in the second round of voting. As soon as we started gaining traction, an astonishing additional 34 pages were posted with the phrase “Health Freedom” within hours of our eblast asking people to make Health Freedom a national priority. Now, it is possible that some people misunderstood the way the system worked and thought that by posting a Health Freedom page they were adding a vote. I know one of the posts by a friend of mine was surely an accident of that sort. But the “leaders” who posted those pages surely understood the process.
Consider this: there were a total of 140 votes for those “extra” 34 pages. One “leader” of the Health Freedom Movement posted her comments in 4 separate sections, each one of which got 5 votes. Why? Well, the result was that instead of being in second place, we came in third. It is hard not to conclude that the intent of those 34 pages was to drain off votes so that the issue went nowhere in the process.
Happily, you were active and committed enough to vote us into the final round and for that we thank you. But what sort of “leadership” is it to mobilize people for NEGATIVE benefit to the cause in which they claim to believe by such transparent misdirection?
The truth of the matter is that the other side — Big Pharma and its fellow “Bigs”: – Big Finance, Big Agra, Big Govt, etc., are well organized, huge, enormously well funded and very, very cleaver. They can certainly manipulate online efforts to seek to thwart us. But when our ostensible allies do it… For shame!
Can we really afford to behave this way any longer? Is this juvenile competitiveness worthy of us, is it the best we can do and can it win the Health Freedom War? The answer is clear.
Most people do not know or care about the attacks, counter attacks and foolishness of this behavior. They want their health and their freedom. But the so-called “leaders” who lead this way are leading them over a cliff.
OK. That’s over and what’s done is done. What’s next? The second round.
In a couple days we will be mounting a page on www.HealthFreedomUSA.org at which we will coordinate an all out campaign of support to reach first place nationally on Change.org. We hereby invite ALL of the Health Freedom groups to join us. If they do, we know which side they are probably on. If they do not, we know which side they are certainly on.
In other words, this is a Rubicon for Health Freedom. Just as when Caesar pronounced that the Romans crossing the River Rubicon would change Rome’s course forever, so this event created by Change.org, is a Rubicon for us.
Those who are willing to work together, drop their absurd territoriality and bickering, are welcome to join forces with you and with me. We are, after all, the single most powerful voice for health freedom in the world and your response over the New Year’s holiday proved that conclusively.
If others mount a divisive campaign, shame on them. If they mount a cooperative campaign, sunshine on them. If they continue to seek to divert our (and your) attention with irrational and even violence-implying attacks, we will rise above such pettiness and Keep Our Eyes on the Prize: Health Freedom.
For America and for the world, Health Freedom IS a First Freedom!
Change.org is one way we can tell the new administration in no uncertain, and very positive, terms what is needed to insure that our sovereignty over our own bodies is assured and that we are not menaced with “treatments”, toxins or threats to that personal sovereignty which is essential to free men and women.
So join us, from January 5 to January 15, in urging everyone you know to vote for Health Freedom, our First Freedom. And be ready to help everyone you know understand how important the simple click of a mouse can be to their health and health freedom.
Mouse Warriors: are you ready? Starting on January 5, anyone can go to the page Natural Solutions Foundation is about to put up and make sure that the Obama Administration understands that Health Freedom is our First Freedom.
That, and divesting the FDA of its Food Regulatory Authority, should keep us busy – and free – in 2009. What a great opportunity for change!
Ready? Here Comes Health Freedom!

Adrenal Support For Normal Adrenal Function
Modern life is stressful and insurmountable stress is, quite literally, a killer. Our stress response mechanism is adapted for short bursts of stress followed by longer periods of tranquility. Show me someone whose life is like that and I’ll show you someone who lives in a lead mine or in seclusion in a Himalayan monastery!
We all suffer from the effects of chronic stress and our bodies do not thank us for it. Overwhelming stress may, after long enough, feel normal to us, but is because we have gotten use to having our bodies break down and are no longer paying attention.
Adrenal stress is associated with chronic degenerative diseases (including deadly ones like cancer and crippling ones like arthritis), undesired weight gain, mineral and blood chemistry disregulation, fatigue, immune suppression, premature aging and a host of other negative consequences.
The label of this product tells the story since every item in the product helps to restore normal adrenal function. And Vital Nutrients is a company whose products I know to be clean and wholesome. No GMO products or products derived from GMOs are used and purity is a huge issue for them. In short, I trust their products.
Adrenal Support contains:
Adrenal (whole) Bovine 300 mg and Adrenal (cortex) Bovine 150 mg : Adrenal Cortex from Organically Raised, clean cattle has been shown to be effective taken orally (by mouth) and helps to restore normal blood sugar regulation, red blood cell volume and non-protein blood nitrogen, an important physiological marker. http://westonaprice.org/archive/britton.html
Eleuthro Extract (Eleutherococcus senticosus) 28:1 200 mg : Also known as Siberian Ginseng, Eleuthro has been used in traditional medicine to support energy, regulate blood pressure, and increase our ability to tolerate stress of many kinds and assist energy levels in people with chronic fatigue. Econ Med Plant Res. 1985;1:156-215), http://www.vitalnutrients.net/hq_handouts2.asp?VitaminName=Adrenal%20Support
Ashwaganda Extract 5:1 200 mg: Asgawanda, or Indian Ginseng, is a revered rejuvenation herb in Ayurveda and is used to support adrenal function through its sedating effect while it helps to restore normal digestive and nervous system function. It is also strongly anti-inflammatory with consequent anti-arthritic properties as well. http://www.vitalnutrients.net/hq_handouts2.asp?VitaminName=Adrenal%20Support
Cordyceps sinensis Extract 4:1 100 mg: This mushroom extract has a very long history of use for its rejuvenation impact on adrenal function and for its help in restoring normal liver and lung support. http://www.vitalnutrients.net/hq_handouts2.asp?VitaminName=Adrenal%20Support
Pantothenic Acid 100 mg : One of the major stress vitamins, Pantothenic Acid (B 5), is associated with energy production and supports the thyroid, another energy-related gland. It is vital for optimal adrenal activity (including increasing production of cortisone and other adrenal hormones) and supports numerous biochemical processes necessary for healthy adrenal and energy function. http://www.vitalnutrients.net/hq_handouts2.asp?VitaminName=Adrenal%20Support
I have found that Adrenal Support – http://drrimatruthreports.com/store/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=230 – along with some others that we will be talking about, are extremely effective in returning your adrenals to a state of normal function. These statements, while not approved by the FDA, represent my experience on a personal basis, too.
You can imagine the kind of stress that General Stubblebine and I are exposed to through the work we do for health freedom. Constant travel, less than perfect food, long hours of burning the candle at both ends (like right now!) to bring you health freedom information, etc., have certainly taken a toll on our adrenal systems. We cannot afford to get sick so we pay close attention to our bodies. We, like others who think that we “can take it” found out the hard way how important it is to nourish and take care of the needs of your adrenals before you find out the hard way that they have collapsed!
A word of caution, though: for most people, adrenal support should be taken early in the day. For severely adrenal compromised persons, please consult your local advanced health care provider.
Pregnant women should not take this product without consulting a physician.
But pretty much everyone else should and I hope that you will give it a try! I know that I want my adrenals in tip top shape to protect me from the ravages of stress and I bet you do, too.
Oh, don’t forget that your purchase on www.organics4U.org gives you a 40% tax deduction as our “Thank You” gift while you support your health and Health Freedom.

SUMMARY: Organizing to Divest the FDA
Let’s talk briefly about how you can help us organize to take away the FDA’s power to deny us access to wholesome foods and natural remedies.
We will need people who can contact their local Congresspeople. We need conscientious members of Congress to be willing to introduce our Divest the FDA bill. If you have a personal relationship with any member of Congress, especially any ranking Democratic member, please contact me at email@example.com with “Congress” in the subject line. We need your help.
Some time ago the Elders of the Hopi Nation (Oraibi, Arizona) issued a warning message to the world. Their words resonate deeply with me today since this Health Freedom Action eAlert issues a call for all of us who love Health Freedom and understand that it is our First Freedom, to come together and bring our message to national and global prominence. Back biting and squabbling will get us nowhere, but the system has offered us an unexpected and important opportunity to amplify our voices while the world’s eyes are on the coming inauguration.
It is deeply meaningful to me, too, because I am now in Panama helping to create a unique, but easily replicated, Valley of the Moon (TM) Eco Demonstration Project – www.NaturalSolutionsFoundation.org – to help reclaim the production of food around the world so we are looking toward the soil, toward our community, toward ourselves for leadership.
I offer you the wisdom of the Hopi Elders as you embark upon a year of health, peace, prosperity, accomplishment, joy and love.
“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.
And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships? Are you in right relation?
Where is your water? Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community. Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time!
There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river
Keep our eyes open and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you
At this time in history we are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
May your New Year be everything you wish for yourself and your loved ones,
Yours in health and freedom,
