Why organized medicine wants to outlaw nutrition and turn healers into criminals

How about some truth for a change about the Food Supplements Directive in the European Union? The proponents of this directive say that it's about protecting patients from all these dangerous vitamins, minerals, supplements, plant extracts and antioxidants that are so dangerous for people. They say, "We're going to keep you safe!" Let me tell you what I think. It's an attempt to outlaw nutrition (see related ebook on nutrition). It is an attempt to criminalize those who would offer nutritional products that can actually prevent and even treat chronic diseases.
Why would anyone want to do this? Well, look at what it's trying to ban. One of the things it's trying to ban is tocotrienols, which are various forms of vitamin E. These are naturally occurring antioxidants that are found in the plant world. You can find them in whole grains, nuts, seeds and a variety of different plants. Why would they want to ban these ingredients and make it a crime to sell these to people?

Well, think about it folks. These ingredients prevent chronic disease better than prescription drugs, without the side effects, and without the profitability of prescription drugs. If people really knew just how much they could prevent chronic disease with these plant extracts, medicinal herbs, vitamins, minerals, and supplements, the pharmaceutical industry would collapse overnight.

The defenders of "Big Pharma" and of organized medicine have realized that they can't win the information war. They can't prevent people from finding out how to be healthy. Believe me, they've tried! They've tried through censorship, oppression, influence, and even attempts to regulate medical information on the internet. They have tried to create a total blackout of information, but they've failed. Thank God we live in a (relatively) free society where the internet still operates and people have access to independent information. As people are increasingly finding out that prescription drugs actually kill you, while vitamins, nutrients, and plant-based supplements actually save your life, organized medicine had to go to Plan B. Plan B is to outlaw nutrition, which is what the European Union Food Supplements Directive is all about.

Let's take this one step further here. Let’s assume they succeed in outlawing this nutrition. It's suddenly illegal to buy any amount of vitamin C over 50 mg, for example. It's illegal to buy various minerals, such as vanadium or boron. It becomes illegal to buy tocotrienols, or other antioxidants derived from plants. Well, what's the next step? It is, of course, to outlaw medicinal foods entirely! continues on page 2 ->

I had an interesting visit with my liver specialist I have hep C with a biopsy intersection of 2/ 3 also a painful neuropathy condition, derivitive I belive, from the interferon I was persuaded to take and which I found out later was not indicated for my condition at the time because of my perfectly functioning liver. I almost died and did lose my mind from the interferon last year and had to stop treatment.

In the specialists office she discussed my biopsy report and then enquired if I wanted to participate in an experimental drug trial. I was not eager to do this as it was not approved by the FDA and there were no guarantees and the result of my relationship with interferon was fresh in my mind.

When she was done talking to me I asked her about herbs and she said that I had to be careful with herbs as they were not tested and approved. Then I mentioned Milk Thistle which I had discovered by independant reading and she told me that was one herb that was at least not dangerous. Then I asked her about nutrition and she, seemingly, reluctantly answered my questions. I had to pry them out of her.

After I left I realized that she was willing to have let me walk out of the door without informing me of one thing that she knew would help me, or at least had the possibliity of helping me.

This was not so much of an eye opener into the working of the drug company / medical community relationship, but rather a confirmation of what I learned in the past year due to my experience with it.

This was a highly informative article, and the topic is one that is of great interest. My wife is a Holistic Health Practioner ... Or, rather, she should be one soon, as she just completed her training and we are currently awaiting her test and grade results. During her research and studies, I came to understand a great deal about the failure of the aliopathic medicine in the west, as well as the draconian measures of the pharmaceutical companies to repress knowledge of suppliments and even standard vitamins, much as is indicated in this article. After doing some research and taking some interesting suppliments myself, I'm quite amazed by the efforts of conventional medicine in the west to keep it all under wraps or restricted in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
I was sorry to hear of your condition, FMS Berkely. Doesn't sound like an easy road, and it also doesn't sound as if the aliopaths are making it much easier. It doesn't surprise me that the specialist you sought was not eager to discuss nutrional topics. The fact is, most conventional docs in the west recieve little to no real training in nutrition. I think I read somewhere that residents were required to have an hour of nutrional training overall or something.
Personally, I take Nattokinase suppliments, along with Omega Three daily. I have a history of extremely high LDL levels and lower HDL levels, so the Natto helps to keep the juices thin. I don't buy the high LDL/heart attack correlation that the aliopaths provide. It's never been linked. In fact, as many people who have heart attacks have normal LDL levels as have higher levels. It's about a fifty-fifty split. But, true, low HDL in contrast is probably a contributer, hence the omega three. Natto, fermented soy, was actually once banned by the FDA, I believe.
Be well all.

I mentioned this to my son who was with me to hear what the outcome and prognosis would be, it was not as bad as feared as she related it to me, but he told me later that it was his understanding that a Dr. could suffer legal ramifications for leading a patient to an alternative therapy. Liability of some sort. I don't know if this is true or not or if that is one of this individuals fears that kept her from giving the advice on her own.

At least with the Milk Thistle I have the knowledge that it is a product that does heal and has the capacity to help me without harming me.

Your thoughtful reply is appreciated a lot.

I have related this experience to two others and one response was. "It is a money driven business' and another was "I believe her actions were unethical.'

I am inclined to accept both of them as true in some ways.
