Oprah Winfrey- Autism and Mercury Vaccination Connection

The Autism Mercury Vaccine Connection

There is more information available than ever before about autism and the link to mercury (thermisol) ingredients found in vaccinations. The important fact as well is that there are ways through diet and learning how to build the body back to what it was intended to have available through supplementation.

There is an Independent Research Group that is now providing an education program based on their findings in the scientific health community. The scientific health community has never before had a vehicle to bring this information to health care providers and families.

I recommend taking a serious look. Do it for you, do it for your children and do it for the generations to come. We must act for the good of all. There are several websites that will help you find some answers, alerts and people who do in fact care. The medical mainstream as we all know functions on the primary goal of increased revenue. Unfortunately this is at the expense of our loved ones.


Advanced Health Education Program

Autism Mercury Connection with Oprah Winfrey and Robert Kennedy Jr.
Is Big Pharma working with medical mainstream to harm your children?

"The story of how government health agencies colluded with Big Pharma to hide the risks of thimerosal from the public is a chilling case study of institutional arrogance, power and greed. I was drawn into the controversy only reluctantly. As an attorney and environmentalist who has spent years working on issues of mercury toxicity, I frequently met mothers of autistic children who were absolutely convinced that their kids had been injured by vaccines. Privately, I was skeptical. I doubted that autism could be blamed on a single source, and I certainly understood the government's need to reassure parents that vaccinations are safe; the eradication of deadly childhood diseases depends on it. I tended to agree with skeptics like Rep. Henry Waxman, a Democrat from California, who criticized his colleagues on the House Government Reform Committee for leaping to conclusions about autism and vaccinations. "Why should we scare people about immunization," Waxman pointed out at one hearing, "until we know the facts?"

It was only after reading the Simpsonwood transcripts, studying the leading scientific research and talking with many of the nation's preeminent authorities on mercury that I became convinced that the link between thimerosal and the epidemic of childhood neurological disorders is real." ~ Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Effectiveness and empowering the public

I am often frustrated by most people and the problems they face with their back, neck shoulders, knees and other parts of their body that appear to be breaking down as they age. Part of the problem is that our healthcare system has become so specialized, that nobody looks at the person. For example, if you have knee pain, your primary doctor will likely either give you medication or send you to either a therapist or an orthopedic doctor. For some reason, the rarely consider the chiropractor. The person they refer to treats the supposedly injured part and the results are often mixed, leading to more medications or sometimes high tech tests or surgery. On another occasion, this same person, may have a lower back episode. This is likely treated with more pills and if they dont relieve the pain, the patient is referred to either a therapist, orthopedist and sometimes is lucky enough to be given a chiropractic referral. On another occasion, this same person develops shoulder pain. The same thing ensues and they either get pills, therapy, a shot and rarely a chiropractor. During these episodes, the patient sometimes will get relief and that relief may often be short lived.

There is a common thread that runs through all of this. Problems with someones gait (the way they walk which is by the way inherited) will predispose the patient to all of the above types of problems. If we just look at the area of pain, are we missing what is really wrong with the person.

This is where our practice is different. We look at people, then get a list of their symptoms and then try to make sense of what we are seeing. This then leads to more appropriate and effective therapy. Most gait issues are caused by body assymetries that create strain on one side of the body causing chronically painful conditions. The medical literature if you look deep enough actually shows this to be the case.

My point is that as physicians, we are trained in the medical symptom model, not the mechanical function/malfunction model. I often tell people I work in a different paradigm than many of my collegues. The great thing is I help solve many difficult chronic long term pain cases, many that were called myofascial pain syndrome of fibromyalgia.

Our office gets predictable results with neck pain, shoulder problems, knee, hip and back pain for most patients unless there is a more severe problem that requires advanced diagnostics. The good news is that most people do not require advanced diagnostics and we save the system tons of money by avoiding unnecessary tests, MRI's and instead, use that insurance money toward getting the patient better.

I am currently writing a consumer level book discussing our model, why many conditions can get better with the right thought process and debunking myths of many conditions patients often tolerate off and on all their lives and never get resolved. I hope to have the book completed early next year and will be looking for a publisher who wants to have a book of the general public that helps them understand why people are in pain and how to find someone who really understands how to get them out of pain without drugs or surgery.

Stay tuned...

Basics of Cancer

In order to understand the scientific proof for the avoidance of cancer, we will attempt to explain briefly how scientists map the workings of the body.

The fluids outside the cells within the body ideally have a pH of 7.4 - 7.5 (i.e. they are alkaline). this fluid enters the cell, is depleted and exits the cell now having a pH of 6.8. The action of fluids going in and out of the cells at these levels and creates an electrical charge of 70 mili-volts. If the body cannot create this electrical charge it dies. It is essential to life for nutrients to be converted into electricity. Absent this charge, and the brain cannot communicate.

This charge is reliant on a trigger mechanism composed of a couple of nutrients. If these nutrients are lacking the body must use its own stored-up supply. Alkalinity level goes down, oxygen supply decreases and the body becomes susceptible to many illnesses including all cancers.

Over 75 years ago, Otto Warburg was awarded two Nobel prizes for his theories that cancer is caused by weakened cell respiration due to lack of oxygen at the cellular level. According to Warburg, damaged cell respiration causes fermentation, resulting in low pH (acidity) at the cellular level.

Dr. Warburg, in his Nobel Prize winning paper, illustrated the environment of the cancer cell. A normal healthy cell undergoes an adverse change when it can no longer take in oxygen to convert glucose into energy. In the absence of oxygen, the cell reverts to a primal nutritional program to nourish itself by converting glucose through the process of fermentation. The lactic acid produced by fermentation lowers the cell pH (acid/alkaline balance) and destroys the ability of DNA and RNA to control cell division. The cancer cells then begin to multiply. The lactic acid simultaneously causes severe local pain as it destroys cell enzymes. the cancer appears as a rapidly growing external cell covering with a core of dead cells.

Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for showing that cancer thrives in anaerobic (without oxygen), or acidic, conditions. research by Keith Brewer, PhD and H.E. Satori has shown that raising the pH, or oxygen content, range of a cell to pH 8.0 creates a deadly environment for cancer. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with numbers below 7 representing an acidic condition and above 7 representing an alkaline, or oxygenated, condition.

The substance that works the fastest in
raising a body's pH is Cesium Carbonate!

Cancer cells are very weak, far weaker than healthy cells. It is very easy to kill cancer cells if you can create the right environment. The following protocols are deadly to cancer cells, yet harmless if not outright beneficial to healthy cells.

Independent Research Group: Big Profits in Biowarfare Research

Big Profits in Biowarfare Research

Corporate America's Deadliest Secret

A number of major pharmaceutical corporations and biotech firms are
concealing the nature of the biological warfare research work they are
doing for the U.S. government.

Since their funding comes from the National Institutes of Health, the
recipients are obligated under NIH guidelines to make their activities
public. Not disclosing their ops raises the suspicion they may be
engaged in forbidden kinds of germ warfare research.

According to the Sunshine Project, a nonprofit arms control watchdog
operating out of Austin, Texas, among corporations holding back
information about their activities are:

Abbott Laboratories, BASF Plant Science, Bristol-Myers Squibb, DuPont
Central Research and Development, Eli Lilly Corp., Embrex,
GlaxoSmithKline, Hoffman-LaRoche, Merck & Co., Monsanto, Pfizer Inc.,
Schering-Plough Research Institute, and Syngenta Corp. of Switzerland.

In case you didn't know it, the White House since 9/11 has called for
spending $44-billion on biological warfare research, a sum
unprecedented in world history, and an obliging Congress has
authorized it.

Thus, some of the deadliest pathogens known to humankind are being
rekindled in hundreds of labs in pharmaceutical houses, university
biology departments, and on military bases.

An international convention the U.S. signed forbids it to stockpile,
manufacture or use biological weapons. But if the U.S. won't say
what's going down in those laboratories other countries are going to
assume the worst and a biowarfare arms race will be on, if it isn't

Sunshine says failure to disclose operations also puts corporate
employees involved in this work at risk. Only 8,500, or 16%, of the
52,000 workers employed at the top 20 U.S. biotech firms work at an
NIH guidelines-compliant company, Sunshine says.

Francis Boyle, an international law authority at the University of
Illinois, Champaign, says pursuant to national strategy directives
adopted by Bush in 2002, the Pentagon "is now gearing up to fight and
win' biological warfare without prior public knowledge and review."
Boyle said the Pentagon's Chemical and Biological Defense Program was
revised in 2003 to endorse "first-use" strike in war. Boyle said the
program includes Red Teaming, which he described as "plotting,
planning, and scheming how to use biowarfare."

Besides the big pharmaceutical houses, the biowarfare buildup is
getting an enthusiastic response from academia, which sees new funds
flowing from Washington's horn of plenty. "American universities have
a long history of willingly permitting their research agenda,
researchers, institutes and laboratories to be co-opted, corrupted,
and perverted by the Pentagon and the CIA," Boyle says.

What's more, the Bush administration is pouring billions in biowarfare
research while some very real killers, such as influenza, are not
being cured.

In 2006, the NIH got $120 million to combat influenza, which kills
about 36,000 Americans annually but it got $1.76 billion for
biodefense, much of it spent to research anthrax. How many people has
anthrax killed lately? Well, let's see, there were those five people
killed in the mysterious attacks on Congress of October, 2001 ---
attacks that suspiciously emanated from a government laboratory at
Fort Detrick, Md.

One would think the FBI might apprehend the perpetrator whose attack
shut down the Congress of the United States but nearly six years have
gone by and it hasn't caught anybody. Seem a bit odd to you? Some
folks suspect the anthrax attack was an inside job to panic the
country into a huge biowarfare buildup to "protect" America from

Milton Leitenberg, of the University of Maryland's School of Public
Policy, though, says the risk of terrorists and nonstate actors using
biological agents against the U.S. "has been systematically and
deliberately exaggerated" by administration scare-mongering.

And molecular biologist Jonathan King of Massachusetts Institute of
Technology says, "the Bush administration launched a major program
which threatens to put the health of our people at far greater risk
than the hazard to which they claimed to have been responding." King
added President Bush's policies "do not increase the security of the
American people" but "bring new risk to our population of the most
appalling kind."

In the absence of any credible foreign threat, Sunshine's Hammond
said, "Our biowarfare research is defending ourselves from ourselves.
It's a dog chasing its tail." Sadly, it looks more and more every day
like a mad dog.

Self, the stroke threat and other groundless magazine articles

It has been upsetting to me lately to read some of the sensational scare tactic articles that are hitting the news stands. One that came to mind was an article in Self Magazine. The article brought up the issue of the chiropractic adjustment to the neck and the threat of stroke.

That scare unfortunately has hurt many who would have benefitted from chiropractic care and stayed away because of this concern. Reality check...

Chiropractors have among the lowest malpractice rates in the country. Ours is about $1300 annually. Since this is based on risk, and since our rates are about 90 percent less than your family practice doctor pays, one can only assume that what we do in our offices is quite safe.

The article below that you can download talks about the true risks. The truth is that having a stroke at the hands of your chiropractor is a chance of less than 1 in one million adjustments. Considering many patients neck problems are actually in their mid back and lower back regions, especially in our office, we do not manipulate the neck unless absolutely necessary. We take all precautions and prescreen patients for any possible problems. When compared to tylenol which can have serious consequences in as few as 1 in 7500 people taking the drug, chiropractic is a no brainer.

Don't be put off by the scare tactics and sensational headlines that others seek. When compared to medical methods, chiropractic has proven itself over and over to be safe and effective and our patients know we deliver the goods in the absense of drugs and surgery.

I find it funny that athletes cannot get enough of us. Recently, the Mets hired a team chiropractor. I guess it is still up to our patients judgement as to whom they will use for the care of their frame and musculoskeletal system.

Our patients know we are effective and we have research to back it up. For many of us though, our bodies are our own labs. While chiropractic care may not fix all problems over night, our patients not only get relief but are in overall better health with a true sense of wellbeing, not a drug induced facsimile.

Hurting our patients and our profession by Judicial means

Many of our patients are appalled that our right to adjust extremities (arms, legs, wrists, elbows, fingers and other such articulations that relate to movement) had been taken away by an appellate court decision. It has hurt all chiropractors and their patients, especially since they are the only ones really qualified universally in NJ to perform these services. Although a chiropractor may still work on these areas, actual adjustments to these joints to reestablish normal movement and free patients of pain has been a mainstay of chiropractic practice for decades.

Our scope of practice had been interpreted by our state chiropractic regulatory board to include the practice which is used across the country, allowing chiropractors a unique solution to many joint problems.

This decision was made during a malpractice case that was won by the chiropractor in question. The attorneys on the other side queried the appellate court as to weather we as a profession can adjust extremities. Of course, they were shown only what the attorneys wanted them to see causing a bad judgement which took away our interpreted practice law since 1991. They over rode our own chiropractic board. Unfortunately, we all fall victims since this was all about legal strategies and trying to win a lost case.

The profession is attempting to overturn this poor decision but also is trying to use the opportunity to also put forth a new scope of practice, which will update NJ's which is from 1954 and it quite restrictive, when compared to other states.

Unfortunately, our attempts to get this passed yesterday, 6/22/07 failed in the hands of the senate. We will again attempt this in September and hopefully, not only will we prevail for the sake of the profession and our patients, but will emerge with a modern practice act which allows us to perform what we learned in school including nutrition.

I will keep you posted

Advanced Health Focuses on Scientific Health

Source: Vickie Barker
April 17, 2007

(PR) – ASH, an acronym for Advanced Scientific Health, researches
studies of Nobel prize winning scientists. It focuses on research that is
hidden in labs and scientific journals. ASH was started as the search of
one man who was slated for his fourth heart bypass. He decided to walk
out the doctor's office in spite of dire warnings that he would not survive.
He began to research studies from Nobel Prize winning scientists such
as Linus Pauling. The research developed into an understanding of what
makes the body tick and what was required as a foundation for the
body to survive and thrive. Others joined him. Some joined due to
challenges with cancer. Others joined due to challenges with fibromyalgia,
headaches, allergies, or diabetes.

The unique factor about ASH and its army of researchers is that they
have learned to become their own food and drug inspectors. The group
has also developed a simple and basic education program that allows
both health care professionals and families learn how the body works
at the cellular level. Based on the indisputable facts coming from the
scientific health care community they provide an education vehicle that
has never before been available.

The ASH program includes twice weekly Live Lecture calls that are open
to anyone desiring to learn more. Researchers can e-mail their questions
to be answered on the next available Live Lecture. Each researcher
receives a personal research website with access to the protocols
recommended by the Nobelists at Lab Cost to further their independent
research. These formulations are high quality, and the individual
components work together. The sum of the whole is greater than
that of the individual parts.

With today's costs of Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease and other
so called "incurable disease" research reaching the BILLIONS
of dollars, this group has found a way to research, apply and enjoy
good health for a minimal monthly cost. The big difference is, they have
found the natural cure for all "disease" and it is the human body itself.

"We just found out how the body works at the molecular level, applied the
knowledge from the insider doctors and scientists and are here to share it
with you and to make it available for the generations to come" says Barney
Folger, a founder of ASH.

To provide more information on health at the cellular level and an option for
others, a group of independent researchers are making available a Free
Elemental Health Research Guide at www.AdvancedHealthPlan.com.

Anyone suffering with illness and disease would be wise to look at all
options available. You can prevent needless pain, suffering and great
expense by becoming your own independent researcher. The days of
high cost medical bills, dangerous chemical drugs and invasive and
irreversible surgeries are over for those that are willing to learn Autology
(Study Thyself).

Reversing chronic disease is elemental

Most people believe that genetics or bad luck gave them diseases for which the only treatments are drugs and surgeries. As a result, organized medicine will sell an estimated two trillion-dollars worth of drugs and surgeries in 2007.

Drugs and surgeries are obviously not the solution to our medical problems; each year more, not fewer people die slowly (and expensively)from pharmaceutically and surgically- treated diseases.

Drs. Otto Warburg and Linus Pauling were awarded Nobel Prizes for pioneering simple, inexpensive protocols to prevent or reverse chronic illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.

They determined that chronic diseases develop in the presence of acidic/unoxygenated cells caused by bodily imbalances resulting from malnutrition. Simply giving the body the few nutrients it needs restores balance; oxygenation and alkalinization then follow so that real healing can begin.

The process is truly elemental. By learning how your body works and why it gets sick, you can then obtain the non-patentable vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids known to reverse disease symptoms that may have otherwise been terminal.

Once you know how your body works, you can teach others how their bodies work. Whether they know it yet or not, they are depending on you. Nobel prizes have been awarded to men whose contributions to understanding how the body works have given us the “cures” to all diseases. Medical bankruptcies compound the pain and misery of America’s chronic illness epidemic The American dream has a perverse ending these days: Diagnoses of chronic diseases, longterm treatment with expensive drugs, pain, misery, bankruptcy and death without dignity. Almost half of all Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lives; nearly all of them will die slowly and painfully of cancer after being subjected to years of expensive chemo therapy drugs, radiation treatments and surgeries.

Those who escape cancer will succumb to heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s or some other chronic disease. Reuters recently cited a report published in the journal Health Affairs that found half of all bankruptcies are filed by Americans drowning in medical bills.

Most of the nearly 800,000 medical bill-induced bankruptcies were average Americans and their dependents with medical insurance who happened to get sick. “Our study is frightening. Unless you are Bill Gates, you’re just one serious illness away from bankruptcy,” commented study director Dr. David Himmelstein of the Harvard Medical School.

To help organized medicine collect, Congress passed a bankruptcy reform bill in March, 2005, exempting medical bills from bankruptcy protection.

Statistically, you will be diagnosed with a chronic illness, you will seek treatment from doctors who will prescribe drugs and surgeries, you will suffer economic hardship from treatments that never cure the illness and you will die sick and penniless... ...unless you learn about the true nature of disease and why bodies develop chronic symptoms.

You and your loved ones can escape chronic disease and subsequent poverty, but it requires learning how to prevent or reverse its symptoms nutritionally.

FDA accepts comment until April 30, 2007

Public, professional and industry comments are being accepted on the
FDA proposal to "capture" alternative procedures and products as
"medicine" and then make them illegal. The history of these
repressive attacks by the FDA makes it clear that public outcry,
IN HUGE NUMBERS, is the only effective tool that natural health
supporters have to change this disastrous outcome. Comments will be
accepted until April 30. By contacting everyone you can reach to ask
for their participation in this comment campaign, we can kill this
assault on personal health freedom.

This new proposal is designed to redefine every complementary and
alternative health care modality and product as "medicine." This has
direct implications on the services and products provided by every
alternative health care professional. There is no facet of
complementary and alternative health care that is not affected.

Essential oils, herbs, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies,
minerals, nutritional supplements, plant enzymes and vitamins are
redefined in this proposal as "medicine." Very simply, medicine is
under the jurisdiction of the FDA and, by law, only licensed medical
doctors may prescribe "medicines." Anybody else who advises,
advocates, counsels, distributes, markets, recommends or suggests
anybody use "medicine" is practicing medicine without a license. This
is a felony in the USA punishable by fines and incarceration.

This subtle change of vocabulary from "alternative health care" to
"alternative medicine" makes all of these industries subject to
control by the FDA as medicine. Only medical doctors would be allowed
to provide, prescribe and supervise the delivery of these services.
Anybody else who provided any of these services would be practicing
medicine without a license and subject to incarceration and fines.

Draft Guidance for Industry on Complementary and Alternative
Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the Food and Drug
Administration; Availability

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.
SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the
availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ``Complementary
and Alternative Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the Food\\ and
Drug Administration.'' In recent years, the practice of complementary
and alternative medicine (CAM) has increased in the United States, and
we have seen increased confusion as to whether certain products used in
CAM are subject to regulation under the Federal Food, Drug, and
Cosmetic Act (the act) or Public Health Service Act (PHS Act). We have
also seen an increase in the number of CAM products imported into the
United States. Therefore, the draft guidance discusses when a CAM
product is subject to the act or the PHS Act.

DATES: Submit written or electronic comments on the draft guidance by
April 30, 2007. General comments on agency guidance documents are
welcome at any time.

ADDRESSES: Submit written requests for single copies of the draft guidance to the:

Office of Communication, Training, and Manufacturers Assistance (HFM-40),
Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research,
Food and Drug Administration,
1401 Rockville Pike, suite 200N
Rockville, MD 20852-1448.

Send one self-addressed adhesive label to assist that
office in processing your requests. Submit written comments on the
draft guidance to the:

Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food
and Drug Administration,
5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061,
Rockville, MD 20852.

I. Background

FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry
entitled ``Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and Their
Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration.'' The term
``complementary and alternative medicine'' (CAM) encompasses a wide
array of health care practices, products, and therapies that are
distinct from practices, products, and therapies used in
``conventional'' or ``allopathic'' medicine.

In the United States, the practice of CAM has risen dramatically in
recent years. In 1992, Congress established the Office of
Unconventional Therapies, which later became the Office of Alternative
Medicine (OAM), to explore ``unconventional medical practices.'' In
1998, OAM became the National Center for Complementary and Alternative
Medicine (NCCAM). NCCAM is a center within the National Institutes of
Health. The Institute of Medicine, in its book entitled, Complementary
and Alternative Medicine in the United States, stated that more than
one-third of American adults reported using some form of CAM and that
visits to CAM providers each year exceed those to primary care
physicians (see Institute of Medicine, Complementary and Alternative
Medicine in the United States, pages 34 through 35 (2005)).

As the practice of CAM has increased in the United States, we have
seen increased confusion as to whether certain products used in CAM
(which, for convenience, we will refer to as ``CAM products'') are
subject to regulation under the act or the PHS Act. We have also seen
an increase in the number of CAM products imported into the United
States. Therefore, the draft guidance discusses when a CAM product is
subject to the act or the PHS Act. (When the draft guidance mentions a
particular CAM therapy, practice, or product, it does so in order to
provide background information or to serve as an example or
illustration; any mention of a particular CAM therapy, practice, or
product should not be construed as expressing FDA's support for or
endorsement of that particular CAM therapy, practice, or product or,
unless specified otherwise, as an agency determination that a
particular product [[Page 8757]] is safe and effective for its intended
uses or is safe for use.) The draft guidance makes the following two

First, depending on the CAM therapy or practice, a product
used in a CAM therapy or practice may be subject to regulation as a
biological product, cosmetic, drug, device, or food (including food
additives and dietary supplements) under the act or the PHS Act.

Second, neither the act nor the PHS Act exempts CAM
products from regulation.

This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA's good
guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when
finalized, will represent the agency's current thinking on the
regulation of complementary and alternative medicine products by FDA.
It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does
not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be
used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable
statutes and regulations.

II. Comments

Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management
(see ADDRESSES) written or electronic comments regarding this document.

FDA attempting to regulate supplements,
herbs and juices as "drugs"

Originally published April 11 2007
Health freedom action alert: FDA attempting to regulate supplements,
herbs and juices as "drugs"
by Mike Adams

When it comes to health freedom, this is the FDA's end game. A new
FDA "guidance" document, published on the FDA's website, reveals
plans to reclassify virtually all vitamins, supplements, herbs and
even vegetable juices as FDA-regulated drugs. Massage oils and
massage rocks will be classified as "medical devices" and require FDA
approval. The document is called Docket No. 2006D-0480. Draft
Guidance for Industry on Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Products and Their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA is accepting public comments on the docket until April 30th.
They tried to sneak this under the radar, but word got out and now
the natural health community is up in arms over this rule. If you
wish to protect your access to nutritional supplements, herbs,
essential oils, homeopathic medicine or any other "complementary"
or "alternative" modality, it is crucial that you take action to post
your comments with the FDA right now and write your representatives
in Washington to put a stop to this outrageous effort to destroy
natural medicine. (And be sure to really write them. Just sending an
email has virtually no impact compared to writing a physical letter
in your own words.)

Click here for the direct link to the FDA's comment posting page for
this docket.

This move by the FDA is designed to once and for all destroy the 1994
DSHEA law that has made supplements "legal" while eliminating
nutritional supplements and natural medicine from the United States,
ensuring monopoly profits and control by drug companies and the FDA.
It is the latest action item by the FDA / Big Pharma conspiracy that
will not stop until health freedom has been abolished, drug companies
rule the nation, and every citizen is diagnosied with a fictitious
disease and drugged up on monopoly-priced pharmaceuticals.

FDA "experts" will decide what's a drug or medical device
Under these proposed guidelines, FDA "experts" (the same corrupt
officials who reapproved Vioxx after it killed over 50,000 Americans)
will decide whether herbs, supplements, vitamins or simple devices
like massage stones are to be regulated as drugs and medical devices.
If the FDA experts, in their infinite wisdom, decide that these
things are to be reclassified, they will essentially be outlawed,
stripped from the shelves, and regulated out of existence. Anyone who
dares to manufacture, promote or sell such products may be branded a
criminal and rounded up by armed FDA agents who have a well
established history of suppressing natural medicine.

I've documented much of the criminal history of the FDA in my recent
book, Natural Health Solutions and the Conspiracy to Keep You From
Knowing About Them, which suddenly seems even more relevant today
than when I wrote it. In that book, I documented the FDA ordered book
burnings, the raids on vitamin shops, the kidnapping of natural
health practitioners, the threats, intimidation and oppression
tactics that have been used to suppress natural medicine for nearly a
hundred years now. And now, with this CAM Products Regulation effort,
the FDA is about to deal a final, fatal blow to the alternative
medicine industry, outlawing nutritional supplements, functional
foods, homeopathy and natural therapies all at once.

This is not a drill. It really is time to be alarmed. Nothing else
I've written about this year is as important as this sinister plot to
destroy natural medicine and force the American population to resort
to dangerous prescription medications sold at monopoly prices under a
system of medical tyranny.

Your access to vitamins, supplements, herbs, and even energy medicine
modalities is now directly threatened, and you have until April 30 to
make your voice heard.

Action items
First, read the document yourself. Click here for the PDF version.

Take special care to notice the following text, taken directly from
the FDA's own document: (italicized text is from the FDA, with my own
translation following)

"...a product used in a CAM therapy or practice may be subject to
regulation as a biological product, cosmetic, drug, device, or food
(including food additives and dietary supplements) under the act or
the PHS Act. Second, neither the act nor the PHS Act exempts CAM
products from regulation."

Translation: Anything used in any system of medicine may now be
regulated as a drug or medical device by the FDA. This includes a
biofeedback machine, acupuncture needles, a cup of herbal tea,
massage oil, a glass of vegetable juice or even a bottle of water.

"...if a person decides to produce and sell raw vegetable juice for
use in juice therapy to promote optimal health... [and] if the juice
therapy is intended for use as part of a disease treatment regimen
instead of for the general wellness, the vegetable juice would also
be subject to regulation as a drug under the Act."

Translation: Raw vegetable juice will be regulated as a drug and must
be FDA approved as a drug if it has any health effect whatsoever.
Handing a cup of raw vegetable juice to someone and telling them it's
good for the detoxification of their liver will get you arrested for
practicing medicine without a license and promoting an "unapproved

..."biologically based practices" includes, but is not limited to,
botanicals, animal-derived extracts, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids,
amino acids, proteins, prebiotics and probiotics: whole diets,
and "functional foods". ...a botanical product intended for use in
treating a disease would generally be regulated as a
drug." ..."functional foods" may be subject to FDA regulation as
foods, dietary supplements, or drugs under the Act.

Translation: All foods, supplements, superfoods and functional foods
may be reclassified as drugs by the FDA, then regulated off the

If... the manipulative and body-based practices involve the use of
equipment (such as massage devices) or the application of a product
(such as a lotion, cream, or oil) to the skin or other parts of the
body, those products may be subject to regulation under the Act."

Translation: Massage oils and creams will be regulated as "drugs" and
acupuncture needles as "medical devices." Taking this absurdity one
step further, massage therapists who use their fingers to touch
patients may have their fingers regulated as "medical devices" and be
accused of practicing medicine for merely touching patients.

Things that will be regulated out of existence
It is very clear that the FDA is intending to regulate and ultimately
destroy the entire CAM industry (Complementary and Alternative
Medicine). Based on the explanations in the FDA's own document, the
following things are likely to occur:

All vitamins, nutritional supplements and functional foods will be
stripped of their structure & function claims, reducing them to empty
labels where virtually nothing at all is allowed to be stated.

Vegetable juice will be regulated as a drug. Raw juice retreats will
be raided or shut down.

Growing and selling common garden herbs will get you arrested as a
drug dealer.

Massage oils and handheld massagers will be regulated as "medical

Yoga props, pilates machines and weight machines will be regulated
as "medical devices" and require FDA approval before being sold or

Raw sprouts and other anti-cancer foods will be regulated as drugs.

Bottled water that "treats" dehydration will be regulated as a drug.

Massage therapists who use hot rocks as part of their therapy will
have the ROCKS regulated as medical devices! (It's true. The FDA will
actually look at a pile of rocks and declare, "Those are medical

Functional foods, supplements, vitamins and homeopathic remedies will
disappear from store shelves, pending FDA "review." (The only things
remaining will be processed junk foods and pharmaceuticals, which is
exactly what Big Business wants.)

Therapeutic tea products, such as green tea, will be outlawed and

Vitamin store owners will be arrested and prosecuted for "practicing
medicine without a license."

Citizens owning personal inventories of "unapproved drugs" (vitamins
and herbs) may have their homes raided at gunpoint and their
inventories confiscated by armed law enforcement agents.

The importation of herbs and functional foods from all countries may
be banned.

Keep in mind that the FDA is the same agency that:

Wants to label irradiated foods as "pasteurized."

Voted to put the deadly drug Vioxx back on the market after tens of
thousands of deaths, even after its own manufacurer pulled it from

Raided a church at gunpoint, confiscating biofeedback machines and
charging that they were "practicing medicine" by counseling church
members on issues like depression.

Openly allows corrupt, "on the take" experts to vote on new drug
approvals, even when those experts are taking money from the same
companies impacted by their votes.

Refuses to legalize stevia, the safe, natural herbal sweetener that's
used virtually everywhere else in the world. The agenda? Protect the
profits of aspartame and other chemical sweeteners.

Openly allows the mass poisoning of the public with cancer-causing
food additives such as sodium nitrite.

Refuses to enforce its own laws regarding unsafe chemical toxins in
personal care products, allowing perfume and lotion companies to
continue poisoning the public with cancer-causing chemicals that
don't even have to be listed on the label, nor proven safe.

Ordered the destruction of recipe books that mentioned stevia. (A
campaign to keep the public ignorant of the herb.)

Does everything in its power to protect drug company profits,
including discrediting herbs, supplements and alternative medicine.

Does anyone honestly believe that this criminal organization has any
capacity whatsoever to act in the public interest? Even many Senators
are fed up with the FDA's unprecedented level of corruption and
criminal behavior.

Action items, continued...

Next, lodge your complaint against the FDA by commenting on this
docket through the FDA's docket comment form.

And finally, write your Senator or Congressperson about this issue
and let them know, in blatant language, that you will not stand by
and allow the criminals running medicine today to take away your
access to vitamins, supplements, herbs and homeopathic medicine.
Write the letter in your own words, even if it's just two sentences.
Individual letters have a hundred times the impact of form letters.

Medical wasteland USA
Everything is at stake here. If the FDA gets its way, the United
States will become a medical wasteland, dominated by corporate drug
company interests, where the naturopaths are imprisoned and their
products destroyed. Supplements and herbs will become contraband, and
gardeners who grow their own medicinal herbs may be raided and
arrested by DEA agents wielding assault rifles. Simply selling dried
broccoli sprouts as being "good anti-cancer foods" may land you in
prison, and running a vitamin shop could result in you being arrested
for "practicing medicine."

Imagine a nation where Whole Foods stores are stripped of all herbs
and supplements, where vitamin shops are emptied and abandoned, where
books that promote herbs are bulldozed into large piles and burned,
where natural healers are rounded up and "disappeared" into
incarceration centers. This is the future that will become reality if
the FDA has its way. The plan has been explained to us in plain
language. Any agency that openly states "vegetable juice will be
regulated as a drug" has quite simply lost its marbles. We're are now
clearly being regulated by clinically insane bureaucrats.

With this desperate proposal by the FDA -- clearly designed as a last-
ditch effort to save the failing conventional medical industry from a
massive public shift towards natural medicine -- the war against
health freedom has reached our shores, and the FDA is plotting a 9/11-
style attack to bring down the towers of health freedom in one swift

This is the same agency that currently represents the greatest threat
to the health and safety of the American people, far outweighing the
threat of real terrorism. This agency, we have seen, will do ANYTHING
to protect the profits and power of drug companies. It will lie,
steal, accept bribes, hide scientific evidence, distort statistics,
commit scientific fraud, break federal laws, threaten its own drug
safety scientists, conspire with drug company executives, intimidate
American citizens and use terror-style tactics to achieve its goals
of complete domination over foods, drugs and health.

Why do Americans tolerate terrorism in their own government?

It is time we put a stop to this home-grown tyranny. We have fought
too hard for freedom in the United States to allow us all to be
steamrolled by a criminal front group covertly working for Big
Pharma. The FDA has declared war on natural medicine and the American
people, and we will lose our family members, children, brothers and
sisters as casualties of this war if we don't stand up now and demand
radical changes. It's time to stop this terrorist organization from
destroying the lives of yet more U.S. citizens.

Make your voice heard now, or forever surrender your access to
supplements, herbs, superfoods and functional foods. By the time the
FDA is done with this country, we'll all be eating medication for
breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Action reminders:
1. Lodge a complaint with the FDA by clicking here. MAKE SURE you
include the docket number 2006D-0480. But don't trust this to be
enough. The FDA will probably simply delete half the complaints it
receives, so don't trust your complaint to actually count. It's
important to continue...

2. Send a strongly-worded letter to your representatives in
Washington. Be sure to cite Docket No. 2006D-0480. Draft Guidance for
Industry on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and Their
Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration. Tell them you support
open access to vitamins, herbs, and supplements, and you do not want
CAM to be regulated by the FDA.

3. Send this story to everyone you know. Spread the word. Raise the
alarm. With enough public support, the FDA will be forced to back off
this insane proposal.

And stay tuned to NewsTarget for more news, analysis and action
alerts on health freedom. Even though we're under constant attack by
criminal organizations trying to disrupt our servers and take us off
line, we're still here, beating the drum for health freedom, and
hoping that we have enough sane-minded Americans remaining to save
this country from its government.

Actual FDA quote is gobbledygook
Here's an actual FDA statement from the CAM Guidance report:

For example, naturopathic cranberry tablets might be labeled for use
to maintain the health of the urinary tract. In this example, the
cranberry tablets generally would be regulated as "dietary
supplements" ...if they were labeled for use to "maintain the health
of the urinary tract" rather than "prevent urinary tract infections."
The cranberry tablets would be regulated as "drugs" ...if they were
labeled for use to "treat urinary tract infections" even if they were
labeled as dietary supplements.

Scientific Health Journal

The Scientific Health Journal is a newly developed resource and publication that will be providing facts and findings from the advanced scientific health research that is now available for health care providers and families.

The information is backed with indisputable facts provided by insider doctors, scientists and the findings and experiences from independent research groups that are void of government grants, taxpayer dollars, Corporate pharmacuetical funding and lobbyists. Much of what will now be available to you and those you care for is not readily available through medical mainstream, mainstream news media or the alternative health care system.

These facts will be new to many, but none the less, are facts that will help any family meet the needs of their loved ones. Applied knowledge is the key to eliminating the need for chemical drugs, debilitating radiation and dangerous life threatening surgeries in most cases.

You are fortunate to have found this information. Make it available to yourself, those you care for and others that may be in need of answers to their individual situation. This is a new option for you and is now available today. The solution exists, education is the answer and applied knowledge is the key!
