The Alliance For Natural Health
  • loulou2lou

    Western medicine works for the most part with an array of side effects.The choice should never be revoked.Natural medicine does not dig into the profits of drug companies.The drug companies bleed us dry.The FDA is not our guardian.If it were there are a large number of drugs that would have never made their way into our medicine cabinets.

    • Ron Wheeler

      A drug only needs to test effective 5% successful to be listed as approved by the FDA, now tell me who is criminal?

      • loulou2lou

        I guess we both know the answer to that one.Stan

    • Theresa

      Yeah, Western medicine works for the most part in killing people!

      • Excuse me

        When Western medicine is inappropriately applied, it is dangerous, and filled with risks and adverse effects. But remember the genesis of much of modern medicine was developed for rapid response to life-threatening conditions, such as acute trauma. In that, it has no equal in alternative care. The mistake is made when physicians view every problem as a nail that requires a hammer to treat. Ideally, I would like to see a system in which naturopaths like they have in Washington State are the PCPs, and MDs provide care for the failures in wellness. (And there will always be plenty–observe the crowd at the shopping Mall…) When the patient is stabilized by the systemic onslaught that can be part of allopathic care, she returns to the PCP for restoration from the effects of the life saving treatment. 🙂

          Don’t forget the programmed masses who flock to their physicians, urgent care, or ERs and nearly get violent if they’re not given a plethora of pills in response to their aches and pains. People in America want immediate gratification and for the most part refuse to put any effort into their care. We can’t blame physicians who are more or less caught up in the middle any more and have become scapegoats for big pharma, insurance industry, and lawyers.

          • Excuse me

            That’s a very good point. The system is damaged or broken in several ways, and those who should be key players–providers of care that include NDs, DCs, MDs, DOs, ARNPs, and PAs–are buffeted by regulatory changes that force them to spend time and money reporting statistics to the government or providing translation capability for 50 different languages.
            Our government is filled with bright people. Unfortunately, the more of them that gather in a decision-making group, the dumber they must get, until they are unable to organize a two float parade–or they are so bought and paid for they can’t make a decision in the interest of anyone other than the contributors.

        Vioxx killed an estimated 60,000 people before it was pulled and no one was held accountable.

          It is but tell me why is it the American whom is productive, has some morals, values and ethics is under attack? Trump released 45000 Syrians on us recently…for example, new tick disease invading the USA as are other diseases that we know nothing about or have eradicated – good resource for getting the USA really sick and replacing the country with Syrians or Muslims or illegals…these illegals are being placed into small towns so sit up and take notice..in WY Meade is bowing over ….. to just let the Trump admin and formerly Obama admin do whatever they want to…why are we fighting immigration when he is importing these ???? in mass thousands?

    I use a number of supplements and prefer them over pharmaceuticals. Established healthcare is not interested in alternative medicine and if natural medicines are going to be researched or even allowed to be used, We The People will have to make it happen.

      I have started to use a potent form of Curcumin. For the first time in years, I can sleep without my arms killing me. What a blessing, and it didn’t require a patent to be produced. It costs less than $35 for a 30 day supply. By comparison, my wife is using a special cream produced by big pharma that comes in a 1.5 oz tube and lasts about a month for $204. Of course, the cream is patented and FDA approved.

      • Buzz

        Very interesting! I know a lady from my past whom got off of 12 Big Pharma drugs a little at a time…she has never been healthier!

    • Mary Walczak

      As do I, and my health would suffer tremendously if I didn’t have my supplements.

    • Buzz

      I use Nano Silver and never truly really sick; it is 99.99% pure from the gentleman that I buy from.

  • generalJed

    My grandfather was a pharmacist compounder of natural medicines back in the 1920s, before antibiotics. They worked! To this day, I take both pharmaceuticals and natural medicines. Both have their applications. The FDA should not stand in our way in being treated.

    The FDA has been caught publishing the fraudulent claim that dietary fat is responsible for all the harm added sugar does; they were lobbied to do so by the commercial junk food industry. This is an example of why they have not earned the credibility of most highly trained licensed physicians. What is now worse, they are under the farm bureau which is no run by a Hardee’s CEO whose company was busted numerous times for wage theft of people on minimum wage which was kept below a living wage through lobbying on his industry. Many Kellogg’s breakfast cereals are more than 50% sugar and by law are required to be sold as candy rather than food. The FDA does not dare to enforce this law because the breakfast cereal industry tells them what to do. Lying, cheating, and stealing go together and the FDA is mixed up in all of these. Therefore the physician should be protected from FDA interference that the physician judges best.

    • Buzz

      I read a comment from FDA as I was researching for my book; it alluded to the fact that there are so many new drugs coming out, they only test about one third to the point of being accurate…heck, the side effects of too many are worse than what you may be suffering from.

  • Len Wojno

    My first choice is naturopathy, Ayurveda, homeopathic, vibrational therapies such as SCIO, Diadens, and Rife machine, etc, Herbs, vitamins, minerals, and enzyme therapy. Allopathic with all it side effect drugs , unnecessary surgery where things can go wrong is not my choice. I will take allopathic only if I break a leg or if in a car accident etc.

  • Julie Fraser

    For things to change, we must forge ways forward WITH traditional medicine, not in OPPOSITION TO. The way to bring systemic change is to pull in the stakeholders who have the most to lose in a change. Let’s find common ground. Together, we have a chance to change healthcare in this country.

  • Cheryl Detar

    I have been using Natural Medicine for 30 years. I will be 69, next month and have NO health issues…I’d say that’s proof, it works.

    • kenmarx49

      I am 73 years old and stopped taking formulated medications many years ago in favor of supplements. I know my health numbers as I donate blood platelets every two weeks. They are all good. Also, people tell me I look much younger. That may not be “proof” of anything, but I have lived longer than my parents did and I expect to be around for many years to come (as long as I don’t get hit by bus or something).

      • Buzz

        I can identify here! I am 74 and look right in the neighborhood of the early 60s! In addition, let me make a small remark…I use limited makeup and only when I have a presentation to make; I do not use all these hundred dollars creams and all else they put out for hundreds, thousands if you buy the entire line..I use two products..Natural Dickinson’s Witch Hazel to cleanse my face and neck, chest; then I apply a lotion sold by Family Dollar for a $100 a bottle of Vitamin A…

    Compounding pharmacists are becoming a rarity, even in large metropolitan areas because they are prevented from compounding and selling medications that are tailored for patient needs. My wife is seriously allergic to mass produced progesterone and thyroid medications and needs to have continued access to these compounded substances. We know of only two remaining compounding pharmacies in the western half of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, and they are 20 and 35 miles away. There are nine conventional pharmacies within two miles of our home. Something is out of kilter here.

    Most pharmaceuticals have more side effects than the disease you are taking them for. FDA only approves what is written on some piece of paper by some lab. And we feel like the lab rats.

    • Headhunter

      I totally agree!!!!

  • Emmett Grogan

    It took over 40 yrs for doctors to diagnose my simple low thyroid. I had a goiter hanging out of my neck and still they wouldn’t give me thyroid medication. Natural medicine saved my life, literally. I SUFFERED and no one can imagine how bad it was. And there are LOTS of people like me with undiagnosed thyroid. We have to keep natural medicine!

  • Ailim Hazel

    It makes sense that the current administration would be doing this. If you cut healthcare the way they are in this new Senate Bill, all that’s left for poor and working people is herbs and natural remedies. Cut those off and the poor die faster. Isn’t that what the rich GOP wants?

    • Mary Richter

      This started more than 3 years ago under the last administration. My husband used to be able to get a B supplement from a formulary and his prescription plan covered it.

    • Headhunter

      Yep that what it sound like to me poor folks don’t matter.

      • Buzz

        Neither the middle class that the freak n chief managed to get rid of – at least most of us.
        I see worsening economy..so what is it that is making America Great Again? What am I missing?

    • Buzz

      Couple this with the man made disasters since and before Katrina…UN, USAF and USA behind all of these…murder is what they are doing in too many countries; Japan came after the US when the man made earthquake at 7.1 hit them a couple of years ago..they proved it over and over…Obama did nothing same as Trump. He knows these are manmade; however, they do not seem to hit his properties in FL; he knows they are for population control through murder, does nothing! Yet, he turns 45,000 Syrians on us to help displace you and I, others as “we” are or should I use the words replace? He knows it is also an avenue to condemn properties so the Agenda 21/30 can be fulfilled, UN’s baby and that leads to the NWO! GMO, another way to murder and for you blaming Monsanto, you are correct but you also have Bayer of whom most of us think is just wonderful! Well, Monsanto sold out to Bayer; it was Bayer whom developed the “gas” chambers used in the Holocaust; most of the Weed and Pest agencies use Monsanto/Bayer products..they are lethal. Most ruin the soils as they become more and more alkaline.
