Alternative Health Products Attacked – The 5 Top Reasons to Support a Charter of Health Freedom

Natural Health Products or NHP, such as vitamins & minerals, herbs, TCM, etc. are being attacked, decimated actually, by unnecessarily regulations arbitrarily imposed by Health Canada via the Natural Health Products Directorate. 20,000 natural products, factually totally safe, can no longer be accessed by Canadians due to arbitrary regulation, not safety laws.

Alternative Health Under Attack

However, unlike the US, Health Canada regards safe nutrients, vitamins, etc as dangerous substances that are better taken off the market. Since 2004, with the Natural Health Product Directorate (NHPD) over 20,000 wellness products have gone missing from Canadian shelves.

These therapeutic substances were not found to be dangerous, no one was injured by these products. The 20,000 NHP (herbs, vitamins, natural food concentrates, etc) were removed for not meeting regulations arbitrarily imposed by the NHPD. In fact: Removal of alternative NHP by the NHPD have made people sicker as natural remedies were actually making them well when they had free access and were benefiting from these therapeutic aids.

Recently, Bill C 51 and C 52 were introduced to Parliament as the ‘revised or new’ Food & Drug Act. These Bills were and are both non-constitutional and violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms of Canadians — re: illegal search and seizure, non-recourse to fines levied, and essentially violated the Rule of Law as handed down to us over 800 years ago via the Magna Carta.

The resulting uproar from Canadians protesting against C 51 and even C 52 was that two of the major opposition parties, the NDP and The Liberal Party reversed their for positions to against positions on these Bills.

Where we stand now as Canadians: Vulnerable to further degradation of Human Health Care Rights.

Why Support Alternative Health Freedom and Free Access to Health Products?

  1. Natural therapeutic products are regulated by Health Canada, a body that is used to dealing with toxic or dangerous substances – aka ‘drugs’
  2. NHP are very safe and enhance the lives of Canadians who use them
  3. Regulating safe products creates unnecessarily controls and results in banning by over zealous regulatory bodies, such as Health Canada and the NHPD
  4. Putting safe health substances under the control of those who deal with dangerous substances, infers these safe products are now ‘dangerous’
  5. Alternative health freedom implies access to try, experiment and otherwise consume therapeutic products for ones benefit or health

There are many personal reasons for you to support freedom of alternative health movements. One of these may be it’s your livelihood and another is your health may depend on your freedom of access to alternative health care products like my health does.

Simple and Inexpensive Alternative Health Care For the Whole Family

Here is a story to illustrate how modern medicine often works. A man had some weeds in his lawn. A gardener was called to remove them. He came with a bazooka, some grenades and a machine gun and proceeded to annihilate the lawn. After the job was done, the owner was all upset. “What have you done with my lawn. All I wanted was a few weeds removed.” The reply was, “Well, I got rid of them didn’t I?” Our health care systems often do something like this – costly and difficult fixes instead of relatively non-intrusive, simple and inexpensive body aids.

Until “modern” medicine came about less than 150 years ago, people mostly looked after themselves from a health care point of view. They trusted natural products and approaches for ills and ailments. The idea was to help the body help itself instead of introducing chemicals and products that are highly invasive and in many cases weaken the body further. Ancient wisdom and remedies were passed on to next generations. We have lost much of that ancient wisdom and it is under constant attack by the “modern” medical world. We are told we need to use the gardener’s “kill at any cost” approach instead of something gentle, simpler and less expensive.

Our family members go to a modern-medicine doctor only if absolutely necessary and as a last resort. We learn about our problems and try to fix them ourselves first. This knowledge about how our bodies work can then be used in future situations. I think I know my body pretty well by now and I’m pretty sure I will keep fairly healthy in future years. To be honest, I wonder if modern medicine often causes greater harm than what it should and nobody says or does anything about it.

Our family relies on only a few simple things to maintain control of our health. I want to pass on what we have used for years. We have also saved much money and lost very little “down” time because of them.

I offer no medical claims or scientific proof for these easy and inexpensive self-care methods that work for us personally:

Colds
Instead of buying medicines and syrups containing questionable chemicals, we use a strong salt water or diluted food-grade hydrogen peroxide gargle to kill cold germs in the throat and it seems to prevent them from spreading. At the first signs of a cold, we also use a hot water bottle on the chest and throat while sleeping. Germs are killed easily in the body by the heat and you use less energy producing the fever because of the external heat source. Simple, natural and inexpensive.

Body Toxins
A white coating on the tongue can be a good indicator of toxins. Scraping and mouthwashes to cover the smell are not the solution! Tongues should be pink and uncoated. Check your diet. The color of urine also indicates the level of toxins-the lighter the better. Drink more water to dilute and flush toxins. As you detoxify, two things will be evidence of successful detoxification: clearer urine and a fresh, pink tongue.

Dehydration
Many people are dehydrated and don’t even know it. Headaches can often be warning signs of not enough water in the system. Frizzy skin below cuticles, dry and lifeless hair, and dry flaky body skin are also indicators. Don’t just drink a whole glass of water all at once several times a day, sip continuously throughout the day.

Iron Deficiency
I didn’t believe this one until I saw it with my own eyes when we tried it on our daughter. Rub a gold ring on a cheek. An obvious black streak indicates there is an iron deficiency. We tried the same thing on others in the family. It showed only on her.

Lack of Energy
Low energy is very often caused by poor diet. Many people think they need more sleep because they are always tired. Sleep is not the solution because it is repair time, not re-energize time. If the body doesn’t have the tools and raw materials to repair, it will still be tired when you wake up. Energy comes from nutritious food. Check your diet if you have low energy. Unprocessed foods are best. Cook at low heat to keep needed vitamins and minerals. Eat more raw fruits and vegetables. Learn relaxation techniques to improve depth of sleep.

Pro-active Disease Prevention
Dentists will tell you that many physical ailments start with germs and bacteria entering at the gum lines. Brush and floss your teeth regularly. Many diseases develop as a result of stress which compromises the immune system. Learn formal relaxation techniques. Also exercise regularly to aerate your body and keep the pipes clear of “sludge.”

Miscellaneous Inexpensive and Safe Self-Care
a) exercise, flex and tense face muscles each day to reduce sagging skin. Save money spent on facial creams.
b) eye exercises help keep stronger glasses away and eyes strong. Look them up on the internet
c) get rid of warts by rubbing crushed garlic juice on them
d) rub your hands on any stainless steel to get rid of garlic odor
e) for athletes’ foot, soak your feet in a hot, strong ordinary salt and water solution each day until eliminated

Looking after your own health care is not easy. It takes time, observation, analysis and talking with people that know. Over the long term, you will get to know yourself far better, appreciate yourself more and feel more in control of your life. As well, your body will be healthier and thank you by working properly because you have helped it help itself.

What If Health Care Was Provided for Your Health Instead of for Someone’s Profit?

Typically if you have an ache, pain, cough or other symptom you ether go to the pharmacy and try to match an over the counter product to your symptom or you go to your primary care doctor. The primary care doctor basically does the same try to match your symptom to a product. He or She may order some tests to narrow it down. But it is all based on profit.

What if you went to a health care provider that first dose an analysis of what is the primary cause of the symptom and what is the simplest way to remove the cause?

That is the method of what is currently called Alternative Health Care. It is based on providing a service of expertise. These experts Will generally refer you to another expert if your symptom or their analysis indicates that your problem is not within their scope of practice. Their goal is to provide a service that gives you the best health possible.

The Primary Care system is designed to make a profit for the investors in the insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, doctors and their suppliers. The profit motive requires them to sell you a product or service for as long and for as much as possible. Whether they remove the cause of your symptom or only cover it up dose not matter to the system. There are always an overwhelming number of new customers coming in the door because the food system and other systems are constantly eroding our health.

If you are not satisfied with the spiraling health care costs and poor health outcomes of the Primary Care system: Consider the Alternative Health system. Ask for a Health Care Savings Plan or ask for insurance that allows you to go to an Alternative Health Care provider first. They may tell you they do not have such a plan but keep asking they will go where the demand is. Consider the supermarket, They now have an organic and health food section because you demanded it or else you went to the health food store.
