Health Freedom War Stories

Health Freedom War Stories

The FDA is a government-funded organization paid for with our tax dollars and designed to insure that nothing negative goes into our food and drugs. Why then are so many of today’s drugs killing people and our food and drink unfit for human consumption? Why then is the FDA permitted to take special favors from the pharmaceutical industry? Let’s take a look at some of the situations that are occurring today.

The holistic community is not permitted to say that it can “treat, cure or prevent” a disease. What ever happened to our freedoms of speech and association, guaranteed by the First Amendment? In my experience, drugs are merely a band-aid on a symptom and cannot cure anything. Drugs simply set you up for more drug taking. Doctors die at an average age of 58 years. This means that most of us frequently outlive our doctors! Think about this, the pharmaceutical industry does not make money on healthy people.

A number of years ago I gave a talk at my local Kiwanis Club where I mentioned that I use 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide as one of the therapies that may benefit me and that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had banned its use. Someone in the audience challenged me, so I called the FDA in Washington, D.C., to inquire further and asked if they had banned its use. “Oh no” was the answer, and proceeded to ask me where I was currently purchasing it. I very foolishly told the spokesperson for the FDA that I was currently buying it at a major vitamin and nutritional supplement company in New York. Upon further research, two weeks later I was told by that same company that they could no longer sell it because the FDA had blocked it. Moreover, another large well known vitamin/supplement supplier had already been told to stop selling it.

Some years ago I was involved in a car accident and I was diagnosed with Carpel Tunnel syndrome. I knew that it was a B6 deficiency and was told not to use more than fifty mg as my physician feared further damage by sensory neuropathy. For two months I took the B6 and B Complex and went back to the doctor who told me I still had Carpel Tunnel. I went back to my books and found that sensory neuropathy was the end result of taking one to two thousand mg of vitamin B6 a day for two years. I figured I could take 600 mg. a day along with 200 mg. of B Complex and still be safe. I then put them in the coffee enemas. One week later I went back to the doctor and there was no Carpel Tunnel.

After realizing the benefits of coffee enemas, I decided to call Fleet Enema to see if we could create healing enemas using my methods. I spoke with a researcher and was asked how it was that drinking coffee did not do the same thing. I explained that it was going through an enzyme bath and an acid bath and exiting through a ruined digestive system. That made sense to him. I then asked if we might collaborate on my coffee enemas?” “No” he replied. “Why not?” I asked. “The FDA would come and shut me down.”

I recently made the mistake of writing a letter to George Bush to suggest we make some changes to correct the problems with the FDA. I copied everyone and every company I could think of and received no reply from anyone. Within a few months I found the only company that made the 500-ppm colloidal silver had been bought out by a pharmaceutical company and that product now requires a prescription from a doctor. What doctor will know enough about it to prescribe it? I wonder why.

One of the therapies used to restore the digestive system is nutrient silver as it allows the yeast back in the upper intestine where it belongs. It is a natural antibiotic and antihistamine. I believe it works best when it is 500 ppm. When dealing with HIV you need 1100 ppm and with AIDS you need 2000 ppm. I was using Innovative Products and all of a sudden could not get the greater concentration. I did some investigating and found that they had been bought out by a pharmaceutical company and you now need a doctor’s prescription to get it. This is illegal.

I had a student with cancer who invited me to go with her to her oncologist. When he found out what my specialty was, he told her that if she worked with me he would not work with her.

Recently, one of the preachers at the Institute for Spiritual Development fainted at church. She was taken to a hospital where they ultimately inserted a pacemaker. It turns out that she has Lyme Disease. She had to undergo secondary surgery to remove the unnecessary pacemaker.

A chiropractor went on a boat recently and a rough wave pushed him up against the railing, bruising and breaking some of his ribs. He was taken to a hospital where they treated his ribs. Later that night he died from a ruptured spleen. They had missed the life-threatening trauma at the ER.

My sister-in-law was being treated for breast cancer and she was given chemotherapy. The nurse missed the vein and the solution went into her tissue instead of the vein. It proceeded to destroy her arm and the doctors decided she should have surgery to remove the arm. The night before the surgery, she died.

And on it goes…. Until we stop it and DIVEST THE FDA of its misused authority; what Dr. Ron Paul has called its “abuse of power…”

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all … are endowed … with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. ... That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it..” Declaration of Independence

3. based on personal observation, case study reports, or random investigations rather than systematic scientific evaluation: anecdotal evidence.

One of the greatest logical hurdles presented by this form of debate is that it proves nothing. An opponent can present as many personal stories supporting his/her position. Objective review is necessary and solid, irrefutable evidence is required. This argument only "preaches to the converted" and further alienates the opposition, which will only be swayed by science. Present science, not stories, and you may reach them.

I appreciate the comment, NJ Consumer. However, there is some controversy in the "alternative" health community regarding this issue. Certainly the "science" community wants to ignore the actual experiences of people and only deal with the artificial structure of "systematic scientific evaluation."

For centuries the healing arts were based on the experiences of healers and healed. Such experiences are held, by the holistic community, to be as valid as what we see as the overly reductionist approach of academic science.

Further, such "experiments" by abstracting from real experiences often fail to uncover the synergistic benefits of "therapies that may benefit" some but are not "provable" for mass populations.

This represents a difference in approaches to life and should not cause problems, unless the proponents of "science" seek (as they have in fact done) to legislate their faith in science, forcing those of us who seek to be guided by experience to accept their belief system instead.

If artificial experiments move you, then I suggest you take a look at the half million journal abstracts about the benefits of nutrients on the govt IBIDS database.


If, however, experience guides your choices, then you may want to explore what practicing healers have experienced.

The choice should be yours...
