What logic can we gain from this news?
Bula! Lynnette here. You have probably heard the newest update from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in regard to a "New Crackdown" they want to implement in 2018.
Before I get to the issue at hand, let me point out a few things as thoughts to ponder.
First, let me start by stating the obvious. The Food and Drug Aministration are in the same title. An old time wonder amongst the holistic world of advocates. "What is the food administration doing with the drug administration"? "Shouldn't they be two separate entities"? We will never get a logical answer to this. Real foods should never be listed as 'drugs' nor should they be in the same arena. There has been a long battle going on as to whether to treat illnesses and diseases with western Rx drugs and remedies or treat them with natural & holistic remedies and protocols. The western medical world says that there is no "scientific" facts to back any of the holistic remedies. Whose 'science' are they referring to anyway? Shouldn't we all use common sense when taking approaches to healing our bodies? One would think so, however, it is not likely for many people to think logically as they have pressure put upon them daily by western medicine doctors and propaganda by the media. Other thoughts to ponder are as follows.
The Western world of medicine doctors claim that the Natural & Holistic world of remedies are all hocus-pocus witches brews because they leave patients in worse conditions than when they started. It is easy for the Western world to look upon the Natural world as 'quackery' when the toxic people do not follow the entire wellbeing approach. Let me explain. Now, don't get me wrong here, there is indeed a time and a place for the temporary use of Rx drugs and western medicine remedies. I will return to this sentence in a moment. The reason that most Americans think natural & holistic remedies are 'quackery' is based on a number of reasons. First, you have the mainstream media and the pharmaceutical industry continually telling the public how wonderful it is to be put on Rx drugs and inject your body with toxic poisons to 'prevent' diseases. Next, you have doctors scaring their patients into thinking that if they do not take this med or do this chemotherapy, they may surely die. Most of Americans have been fed this type of propaganda for decades, therefore, it is no wonder they think they must only trust western medicine doctors in which have been 'backed by science'. Again, whose 'science' is it based on? Drugs that are made by man and in a labe with synthetic ingredients are "approved" by the Al Mighty, FDA! On another note, the reason for the stereotype of 'quackery' in the Natural & Holistic world of healing is that we have peopel/patients whom turn to natural remedies as a last resort. What do I mean by this? I mean that the patient has tried everything they could in the western medicine world to no avail, therefore finding themselves in a desperate mode of fight. When this happens, the patient is so shaken up about their dire situation that they may try anything. Keep in mind that this person was probably in a toxic mess to begin with OR they would not be ill in the first place. I read an article that was very comical, to say the least. The gist of it was that "the body detoxes itself when it is ALIVE". If you have listened to any of my seminars, you will realize that this simply is not true in this day and time. Sure enough, the body was created to HEAL it's ownself and to detox the regular toxic debris such as extra bugs, parasites, minute metals in the soils, etc. It was NOT meant to detox the mass abundance of toxic overload from ingesting poisons from the 'faux phude' world or filtering the GMO infested seeds. The kidneys can only filter so much as well as the liver can only dump so much before they become backed up and are no longer able to function as they were intended. We should all be in the mode of preventing sickness before it ever strikes us. OK, back to my analysis of this subject. When the patient came to the world of natural remedies for healing, they are truly grasping at straws Meaning, when one comes to get healed by using natural therapies, they must understand that this is not a 'quick fix' kind of protocol as they are used to the "give it to me now and biggie size it, while you are at it" mentality. They are not used to doing anything holistic to prevent diseases from ever happening in the first place. Therefore, they also think that since it is 'natural' then what's the harm? There should be no harm done to them. However, when the person is grabbing everything in site to fuel their bodies with ammo to 'beat' the sickness or disease, they do a great injustice to them and to the natural world of healing. You see, when a patient is not taught that is an "All or Nothing" approach and they go back to eating or being the way they were when they became sick. They are not taught that you should refrain from the 'faux phude' industry and avoid processes foods like the plague. They are not taught that once healed, this does not give them any green light to go back living the way they were. They are not taught to change everything in their household from toiletries, cosmetics, foods, textiles and cleaning supplies. If you have not read my story on my son's and my approach to his "UNcurable" disease, then I encourage you to go HERE to get insight. It only stand to reason that the "natural & holistic" world of healing would not work for these toxic individuals. These are the same individuals and doctors whom say: "See, those so called 'natural remedies' do not work and everyone is full of crap!"
So as you can see, when one does not adhere to the full message of changing your complete western living lifestyle, then they reap a lot of unnecessary havoc on their lives and the world of holistic healing! This mentality is why the FDA gets away with the 'crackdowns' they keep implementing year after year.
Keep in mind, though, there is somewhat of a problem in the organic and natural healing world. Why would I say this? Simply because there are products on the market in which do not market to specific ages. Meaning they have products, such as the over media exploded, Hyland teething tablets. More on that in the FDA Article below. We want to keep out those ingredients and companies who do not adhere to toxic-free products, as you will note in the PIV seal as listed below Anyway, there are pros and cons on both sides of the arenas. How could I say there are any pros on the western side, you ask? Well, see my statements above, there is a place and a time for Rx drugs in a temporary situation such as a fatal life threatening accident or a sudden stroke or someone having a heart attack. You see, those situations call for emergency and temporary remedies. For accidents, there are paramedics in which can administer emergency protocols. . Once, in the hospital and the vicitm gains conciousness and becomes stable, it can be an easy decision to get healed the natural way. (A different story if the victim is not regaining conciousness or has a major head injury, that is a new subject). As for someone who is suffering a stroke or heart attack or even cancer, there is time to turn to Natural & Holistic remedies IF they become stable enought ater the encounter. On the other hand, to turn to "Natural & Holistic" remedies immediately suffering any of these, will not be a good choice. Why? For all the reasons just stated herein. Also, please note, that the person suffering from these ailments were in the toxic world to begin with and the outcome was just a ticking bomb waiting to explode. Therefore, it is important to note that a disease infested and ill person needs to transition into the natural healing world and be taught how to completely change their way of life and know that this is not a diet, but rather a Way of Life! However, with broken bones, it is very possible to heal and mend by using all natural remedies and therapies. Ask my son how he healed his broken ankle in which was broken completely on both sides. Went to a few 'expert' doctors in the field and even a holistic doctor and all said for sure he should have surgery. He opted not to do so and healed his own leg with out the use of any Rx drugs or therapies.
With all of this being said, I am sure you are ready for me to get to the nitty gritty of this article.
So as you may have heard by now, there are new bills with crack downs happening in the FDA arena. This took place on December 18, 2017. We have a 90 day period in which the FDA will take the public's input about this new crackdown.
FDA proposes new, risk-based enforcement priorities to protect consumers from potentially harmful, unproven homeopathic drugs.
Quote taken from the FDA's own article, HERE, from their website. "Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed a new, risk-based enforcement approach to drug products labeled as homeopathic. To protect consumers who choose to use homeopathic products, this proposed new approach would update the FDA’s existing policy to better address situations where homeopathic treatments are being marketed for serious diseases and/or conditions but where the products have not been shown to offer clinical benefits. It also covers situations where products labeled as homeopathic contain potentially harmful ingredients or do not meet current good manufacturing practices."'
Most of the natural healing world will say this is completely insane! Normally, this would be a true statement. However, at one point, once upon a time, the Federal Drug Administration was implemented to keep out any unsafetiness and "snake oil" salesmen from abusing the unsuspecting consumer. Keep in mind, I do NOT agree with the standards as they are today with the FDA nor do I belive the foods should be mixed with the drugs. After reading this article, it is pretty detrimental to begin a mass control of what is put on the shelves of the stores. The thing that the agency is trying to get accomplished is to make sure that products are being given to babies in which contain substances from plants such as belladonna in the teething tablets, are not marketed as a one stop curing aid. Furthermore, the Administration felt compelled to 'crack down' on their elvaluations of the holistic OTC supplements and 'drugs' due to 'popular' demand from the outcry of the toxic public in which should have steered clear from the natrual healings in the first place, UNTIL they were taught how to live the life!
Excerpt from the FDA's news article: "FDA says it’s going to take a tougher approach to the $3 billion-a-year homeopathy market.While the FDA still cannot fully regulate homeopathic products, it can take action on those that are potentially harmful."
You see, once the FDA found that the demand for the increase of sales was there for the homeopathy market, they decided then, to 'take action'", as this is digging into the pharmaceutical industry's pockets. We can't have this! A little note of some little light, is the 2nd sentence above here. They still cannot fully regulate homeopathic products as of now. As you can see by reading the article, it just took only one case of an infant having adverse reactions.
A word from Scott Gottlieb: He recognized in his statement that some consumers may simply prefer homeopathic approaches, and in many cases, they should be free to do so. But he also noted the FDA’s public safety obligation when it comes to homeopathy. “Our approach to regulating homeopathic drugs must evolve to reflect the current complexity of the market, by taking a more risk-based approach to enforcement,” he said. “We respect that some individuals want to use alternative treatments, but the FDA has a responsibility to protect the public from products that may not deliver any benefit and have the potential to cause harm.”
Please take the above statement from Commissioner, Gottlieb, with caution.
What does all of this mean to you, as the consumer?
Well, it means that YOU have a responsibility to take action yourself. You have 90 days to call in or fill out a form to voice your opinion. It means that you must be on the preventative side of sicknesses. Now, I realize that the FDA is run by the Pharmaceutical industry. That being said, it is your responsibility to demand your freedom of CHOICE while you still can. This is another scare tactic the powers that be are using to get you to think they are here for 'your best interest'. Please do not fall prey to their tactics and take your health back. Flood their emails, phone lines and faxes with your outcry in the 90 day period beginning this past Monday, the 18th of December.
The moral of this story:
When venturing into the world of natural healing and holistic remedies, please use the common sense that God gave you to take care of your body. When you seek Nature's remedies, and you should, you must understand that it is a LIFE STYLE change and not just adding a remedy here and there and expectin it to "work". Our bodies, are indeed unique and amazing in that they have the ability to heal. The body can reverse diseases and sicknesses when given the proper God given tools to work with. Does it make sense to "poison your way to health"? I didn't think so. Grow your own food / medicine supply for healing.
Please think on these vital health notes and let your food be your medicine for LIFE! Remember, 'The better you take care of your body, the better your body takes care of YOU". When your body shelter is gone, where else will you live?
