The passage of DSHEA was riddled with clear conflict of interest of
Orrin Hatch of Utah, which was, at that time, a major manufacture
state of supplements. Hatch's son has been a lobbyist for supplement
manufacturers.

And, DSHEA gutted the FDA and FTC's authority. Said gutting lead to
the death of a son of a friend of ours.

Derived from chicken sternum cartilage, UC-II� consists of undenatured
(native) type II collagen, a revolutionary new dietary ingredient that
works with the immune system to promote healthy joints and increase
joint mobility and flexibility (FDA-notified and published new dietary
ingredient).* Supported by six human clinical studies, including
research at Harvard University Medical School, UC-II� is the only
source of undenatured Type II Collagen available as a powdered, shelf
stable dietary ingredient (U.S. patents pending). Recognized to
improve joint mobility, flexibility and promotes healthy joints

Revitalizing Blend:

Bromelain - Classified as an herb, bromelain is a sulfur-containing
proteolytic digestive enzyme that is extracted from the stem and the
fruit of the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus, family Bromeliaceae).
Bromelain is believed to be as effective as some commonly used
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications (such as ibuprofen
and diclofenac) for reducing pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Similarly, studies suggest that bromelain may also help reduce the
pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis.

Research indicates that long-standing use of bromelain is helpful in
the treatment for other connective tissue disorders including
scleroderma, bursitis, and tendonitis. Bromelain is useful in the
treatment of a wide range of conditions, but it is particularly
effective in relieving inflammation associated with infection and
physical injuries

Papain - Papain is a proteolytic ("protein digesting") enzyme this is
produced by extracting techniques from the unripe papaya (pawpaw).
It's natural and safe. Papain is used to relieve inflammation and to
improve healing. Additionally, it is being studied for relief of
cancer therapy side effects and rheumatoid arthritis.

Boswellia - Boswellia is an Ayurvedic plant that contains anti-
inflammatory triterpenoids called boswellic acids. Boswellic acid and
its derivatives have anti-inflammation. properties as it inhibits
proinflammatory 5-lipoxygenase chemicals and blocks leukotriene
synthesis.

Feverfew - Feverfew ( Tanacetum parthenium ), a member of the
sunflower family, has been used for centuries in Europe as a remedy
for headaches, arthritis, and inflammation. Recent laboratory studies
have shown that feverfew can reduce inflammation and prevent blood
vessel constriction.

Cayenne - Cayenne pepper (also called Capsicum frutescens) is a
stimulating herb made from the dried pods of chili peppers and is used
as both a medicinal and nutritional herb. It is a very high source of
vitamins and is rich in organic calcium and potassium. Widely
recognized today for improving circulation, stimulating blood flow and
reliving chronic pain.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)- is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant.
Recent findings from animal and laboratory studies support that a
chemical found in turmeric provides anti-inflammatory and anticancer
properties. It contains a mixture or powerful phytonutrients known as
curcuminoids which posses anti-inflammatory properties seen to benefit
joint and connective tissue health. A recent issue of Arthritis &
Rheumatism, highlighted a published study showing the effectiveness of
Curcumin in the reduction of joint inflammation, and recommended
clinical trials for the treatment of arthritis.

Why organized medicine wants to outlaw nutrition and turn healers into
criminals
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

How about some truth for a change about the Food Supplements Directive
in the European Union? The proponents of this directive say that it's
about protecting patients from all these dangerous vitamins, minerals,
supplements, plant extracts and antioxidants that are so dangerous for
people. They say, "We're going to keep you safe!" Let me tell you what
I think. It's an attempt to outlaw nutrition. It is an attempt to
criminalize those who would offer nutritional products that can
actually prevent and even treat chronic diseases.
Why would anyone want to do this? Well, look at what it's trying to
ban. One of the things it's trying to ban is tocotrienols, which are
various forms of vitamin E. These are naturally occurring antioxidants
that are found in the plant world. You can find them in whole grains,
nuts, seeds and a variety of different plants. Why would they want to
ban these ingredients and make it a crime to sell these to people?

Well, think about it folks. These ingredients prevent chronic disease
better than prescription drugs, without the side effects, and without
the profitability of prescription drugs. If people really knew just
how much they could prevent chronic disease with these plant extracts,
medicinal herbs, vitamins, minerals, and supplements, the
pharmaceutical industry would collapse overnight.

The defenders of "Big Pharma" and of organized medicine have realized
that they can't win the information war. They can't prevent people
from finding out how to be healthy. Believe me, they've tried! They've
tried through censorship, oppression, influence, and even attempts to
regulate medical information on the internet. They have tried to
create a total blackout of information, but they've failed. Thank God
we live in a (relatively) free society where the internet still
operates and people have access to independent information. As people
are increasingly finding out that prescription drugs actually kill
you, while vitamins, nutrients, and plant-based supplements actually
save your life, organized medicine had to go to Plan B. Plan B is to
outlaw nutrition, which is what the European Union Food Supplements
Directive is all about.

Let's take this one step further here. Let’s assume they succeed in
outlawing this nutrition. It's suddenly illegal to buy any amount of
vitamin C over 50 mg, for example. It's illegal to buy various
minerals, such as vanadium or boron. It becomes illegal to buy
tocotrienols, or other antioxidants derived from plants. Well, what's
the next step? It is, of course, to outlaw medicinal foods entirely!

Can you imagine a world in which it would be illegal to purchase and
consume garlic? It sounds ridiculous, right? You say, "Oh, come on,
that's just exaggeration!" But is it really? Garlic is one of the most
medicinally potent foods in the world. This is a product that prevents
and treats topical and internal cancers. Raw garlic juice is one of
the most potent anti-cancer supplements you can consume. You can go to
a grocery store right now, buy garlic, and make this yourself. This is
more powerful than many drugs out there. It's a broad-spectrum
antibiotic. It's antiviral, antibacterial, anti-cancer and anti-tumor.
This is an amazing healing food.

Would they try to outlaw that? Right now, they're trying to outlaw
extracts from different plants. It's only a small step for them to
actually outlaw these foods. You'd have to have a prescription to buy
garlic. It would be a controlled substance, and if you grew it in your
own garden, you'd be arrested as a criminal. Don't believe me? Just
try to grow omega-3-rich hemp seeds in your backyard and see how long
it takes for the DEA to show up at your doorstep.

You have a great number of foods out there that actually treat, not
just prevent, chronic diseases. Molasses, for one, is a nutrient-rich
sweetener. It's made from the byproduct of whole grain processing. If
people ate more molasses or used it in their cooking or their oatmeal,
they would get more B vitamins, more magnesium, more zinc. They would
be healthier. We'd see a drop in the rate of Alzheimer's disease,
nervous system disorders, and behavioral disorders, such as Attention
Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and other so called "behavioral
diseases."

You may think it sounds crazy that these foods would some day be
banned. But I think it's crazy to ban extracts of these foods. They're
trying to ban these natural ingredients right now. Beyond the fact
that I think it is unethical to do so, it is a crime against humanity
to restrict people from access to the gifts provided by Mother Nature.
As human beings, we have a God-given right to eat plants, to use the
medicinal herbs found in our natural environment, and to heal
ourselves using these gifts provided by nature. I believe any attempt
to criminalize our connection with nature is itself a crime, and
should be treated as such.


Nutrition is bad for you, didn't you know?
The Food Supplements Directive (in Europe) and this whole effort by
the FDA (in the U.S.) to outlaw certain medicinal herbs and eventually
nutritional supplements is based on the outlandish premise that
prescription drugs are good for you and nutrition is bad for you. This
is such a reversal of reality that it's absolutely astounding they can
get away with even talking about it without being laughed off of the
television show or radio interview.
If you think about it, prescription drugs are what's killing people.
Prescription drugs are extremely dangerous, even according to the
statistics put out by organized medicine. We have one class of drugs,
Cox-2 inhibitors, which, all by itself, is responsible for at least
144,000 heart attacks in the United States alone. Over 40 percent of
those are fatal. The FDA admitted all of this information, yet said,
"That's not dangerous enough for us. Let's put this drug back on the
market." They rubber-stamped it "APPROVED BY THE FDA." This is now
safe for consumption, according to the FDA.

Meanwhile, a Chinese herb, ma huang, or "Ephedra," as it's better
known, is blamed for the death of a few dozen individuals who
overdosed like crazy trying to lose weight. A few dozen people and the
FDA said, "This is dangerous! We have to take this off the market!
It's unregulated. It's a Chinese herb. It will kill you!" It is now a
crime to sell Ephedra. They're criminalizing medicinal herbs, while
legalizing the drugs that kill you. This is what's going on today.


It's really about control
There's a lot at stake here -- a lot of power, control, and, of
course, a whole lot of money. The people at the top of organized
medicine's hierarchy, the FDA, the American Medical Association, top
doctors, surgeons, hospitals, and so on, have all realized that if
nutrition succeeds, and if people become educated about how to prevent
disease through simple, easily available foods, then they are going to
lose a lot of money. They're going to lose a lot of patients, whom
they're depending on. You have drug companies looking at the coming
wave of Alzheimer's and jumping up and down with joy, thinking, "Look
how many customers we're going to have. Let's come up with an
Alzheimer's drug!" Research then comes out showing that Alzheimer's
drugs cause dementia. Yes, it's true. Pain drugs cause heart attacks,
antidepressant drugs cause people to pick up automatic weapons and
blow away their classmates; you can just go on down the list. These
drugs are designed to treat disease and improve people's lives but
they only destroy lives. Nevertheless, that doesn't stop the drug
companies from being excited about the opportunity to sell these drugs
to people.
It's all about selling the drugs. Really, the FDA is just one
gatekeeper by which these drugs can be sold. The FDA is being
exploited and controlled by drug companies. The FDA rubber-stamps
drugs that are highly toxic and extremely dangerous. These drugs
continue to be sold to people all around the world at ridiculously
high prices. It's a big scam, and there's big money at stake.

That's why they've got to attack nutritional supplements. They've got
to outlaw vitamin C, vitamin E, and minerals that prevent disease.
They've got to criminalize them. Their strategy right now is to
protect the profits of the pharmaceutical industry. This whole Food
Supplements Directive in Europe is really nothing more than an attempt
to protect profits. By doing that, they're committing a crime against
humanity, in my belief. They're trying to say that it should be
illegal for people to choose foods, medicines, and healing compounds
provided by nature.


A crazy idea: let's outlaw dangerous pharmaceuticals
I have an idea, which may be crazy, but which I'll throw out there
just in case. What if we outlawed all the drugs that killed people?
What if we made it illegal to sell dangerous prescription drugs that
actually cause chronic disease, that cause people to go crazy, or that
cause people to have heart attacks and die? How about that? Now,
there's a crazy idea. Then, what if we banned drug advertising so
these drug companies can't run highly deceptive ads on television that
get people running to their doctors' offices asking for drugs by name,
even when they have no idea what those drugs do? Patients demand,
"Give me the drug!" The doctor asks, "What do you need it for?" "I
don't know, but those people on TV look really happy!" This happens
every day. Any general practitioner will tell you the same thing.

Let's educate the public
So let's ban everything that actually harms people. Let's then spend
some taxpayer money on public education campaigns to teach people how
to be healthy. We could start with foods. We could start by teaching
expectant mothers how to have good nutrition so that they give birth
to healthy babies with healthy nervous systems, babies who aren't born
predisposed to diabetes, schizophrenia, or other disorders. From there
we can teach our nation's youth how to make healthier food choices.
While we're on a roll, why don't we take all the disease causing foods
out of our school lunch programs. Why don't we ban fast food
restaurants from hospitals. Let's put some healthy foods in people's
mouths. Let's visit the nursing homes around the country, look at
their diets, and say, "No wonder these people are half-mad. Look at
what they're being fed." Let's put some healthy foods into their
diets.

Let's teach people about the real health potential of sunlight. Let's
teach them that if you get sunlight on your skin, you can prevent
prostate cancer, breast cancer, and type 2 diabetes. You can prevent
osteoporosis, schizophrenia, mental depression, and many other
diseases and disorders just by getting some natural sunlight.

So this is my crazy idea: Let's ban the things that kill people, while
supporting the things that improve people's quality of life, keep
people healthy, and prevent chronic disease. Now, I know it's a
radical idea and it would have terrible side effects, such as
plummeting health care costs, increased longevity, increased quality
of life and happiness across the entire population. It would have all
these terrible side effects; for example, we wouldn't have such
violent behavior in our young adults. I don't know if society can
handle these side effects; but if it can, this could be a good route
to go.

One more side effect would be that many corporate executives of
pharmaceutical companies would find themselves out of work. That would
just be terrible. Maybe we could have a government subsidy program to
find new jobs for these people, or train them on something useful like
web page design. They'll need some real jobs, right? If you can't sell
drugs any more, you've got to do something useful for society.


The national doctor re-education program
The same would hold for all the doctors as well, the general
practitioners who practice old school medicine. They wouldn't have as
much work either. I think we'd have to retrain them. We could start by
actually giving them a real education in health. We could start by
teaching them about nutrition. The fact is they never learned that in
medical school. Med schools don't teach nutrition. These doctors are
clueless about it unless they went outside mainstream medicine and
learned on their own.
When doctors find that they're out of work because people are healthy,
because they're avoiding prescription drugs, eating healthy foods, and
using medicinal plants, we might retrain those doctors to become
health coaches. They could go into nursing homes and schools, and be
hired as health coaches teaching people how to be healthy. There's an
idea! Why don't we have our healthcare professionals actually teach
health instead of being experts in disease?

From the history of medicine comes the idea: "First, do no harm."
Today organized medicine is doing tremendous harm. Until we make a
change, they have no right to call themselves doctors at all. They're
not doctors, they're drug dealers. A true doctor is someone who
teaches according to the Latin root of the word, which means
"teacher." If you call yourself a doctor, but you're not teaching your
patients about nutrition and lifestyle changes, you're living a lie.
On the other hand, if you are teaching it, good for you. You should
get more patients. You keep your patients healthy; they could tell
more friends and bring you more business. You deserve to be rewarded
for helping people stay healthy.


Conveniently forgetting the true history of medicine
One more point relevant to the history of medicine and the European
Union Food Supplements Directive: The word "pharmaceutical" has as its
root "pharm," which of course means "plant." Pharmaceuticals have
their origins in plant-based medicine. That's where all
pharmaceuticals originally came from. If you think about it now,
things have gone 180 degrees! The pharmaceutical industry itself is
trying to outlaw plants. How bizarre is that? It is a total disconnect
from nature and from the history of medicine. It is a disconnection
between those selling the drugs and the patients who take them. It's
all about disconnection out there in organized medicine. A lot of
doctors won't even touch their patients. It unnerves them.
Let's turn to natural healing, where we have connections, we have
openness and we believe in health freedoms. We believe in freedom of
choice. We believe in education. And we believe that individuals
should have the right to choose what medicine, herbs, and supplements
they wish to take to treat or prevent their own diseases or disorders,
or just to stay healthy or enhance their health.

Healers and patients can have a connection. The patient, however, is
the only real healer. The doctor or practitioner can only really
educate and support the patient's own healing process. These are the
beliefs of natural health. These are the beliefs which, frankly,
organized medicine doesn't want you to ever adopt. They want you to
believe that nature has no answers for you whatsoever. They want you
to believe that an R&D lab, with its synthesized chemicals, is the
only place where you should get your healing chemicals or compounds.
They think that man is smarter than nature. They think that a man-made
lab can produce smarter disease prevention chemicals than the lab
which has been running for millions and millions of years out there
called Mother Nature.


Covertly stealing from Mother Nature
Secretly, however, behind closed doors, all these pharmaceutical
companies have people across the world trying to find medicinal plants
to look for answers. They are basically stealing them from the native
healers, the indigenous tribes in the rainforest, the deserts of
Australia, you name it. They're stealing all these plants, then taking
them back to the laboratory and trying to synthesize them. That's what
they're doing behind closed doors. They know that the answers are in
the plant. Publicly, however, they want to outlaw those plants. You
see how they work this con?
I say to all of you out there reading who want to be healthy: Bypass
all of that. Bypass the pharmaceutical industry. Bypass the profit,
the greed and the control. Bypass the heavily bureaucratic FDA, which
is dishonest and is operating in collusion with the drug companies.
Bypass a traditionally trained medical doctor, and bypass all the
costs and medical bills and bankruptcy that go along with being
involved with organized medicine. Instead, go straight to nature.

You do that by hooking up with a naturopath. You do that by relying on
plants, foods, natural environment, sunshine, fresh water, clean air,
and by getting grounded with the earth. That's how you get healthy.
I've done it, along with thousands of others who have done it.
Organized medicine has no benefit whatsoever in modern society, except
if you've been in a car crash or something. If an iron girder from a
steel building falls on you and you need some surgery, then definitely
get some surgery. American surgeons are some of the best in the world.
They can stop the bleeding from gunshot wounds and put you back
together. However, they can't prevent chronic diseases and they have
no clue how to treat them.


Don't believe me? Observe this for yourself...
If you're skeptical of everything I've said so far, here's a little
experiment you can run. Go out and find yourself people who are
steeped in organized medicine. Find people who take a lot of
pharmaceuticals, who get surgical procedures every time their doctor
says they need one. Check these people out and see how healthy they
are.
Are they fit and trim? Are they happy? Are they emotionally stable? Do
they have healthy relationships in their life? How do they look? Do
they look energetic? What's the color of their skin? Is it pale and
yellowish? Do they have bags under their eyes? Is it discolored? What
do they look like?

Afterwards, find yourself a bunch of people who follow natural health.
Find people who do yoga, who get acupuncture, who eat well, who
supplement with superfoods and supergreen supplements. Find people who
take vitamins and use medicinal herbs. Find the kind of people you'd
find in health food stores. Look at those people and ask yourself the
same questions. How do they look? What kind of health do they seem to
be demonstrating? If you compare these two groups, it becomes
immediately obvious that the results you get are based on the belief
system you follow.

If you follow organized medicine, take those prescription drugs, go
get those surgical procedures, and you believe all those doctors, the
FDA, and everything the drug companies tell you, you're going to be
quite diseased. You're going to be miserable. You're going to have a
shortened lifespan. You're going to have a shortened quality of life.
You're probably going to be in chronic pain, and you'll have multiple
side effects from all the prescription drugs you're taking. You'll
have skyrocketing medical bills. You might end up in medical
bankruptcy, and you'll be no better off than having done nothing.

If you follow natural health, on the other hand, you can be a healthy,
happy person. You can be energetic, have fantastic mental clarity, and
be free of chronic pain. You can reverse diseases such as type 2
diabetes, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and osteoporosis. You can
avoid dementia, Alzheimer's, and all these so-called "diseases of
aging." You can be healthy and happy. That's the world of natural
health.


Stop trying to justify organized medicine
Some people think they can straddle these two worlds. They say, "I'm
going to get chemotherapy, but I'm going to take some chlorella
together with it. That way, I'll be practicing integrated medicine!"
Integrated medicine is a huge hoax. It's basically a way for organized
medicine to try to keep up with the times, to say that you can use
these herbs only as a minor part of this traditional health procedure.
They want to relegate everything that's alternative into the fringes
of treatment. Integrative medicine is a joke.
Alternative medicine, or what I call "advanced medicine," is where the
real healing power is. That's where you make a choice and say, "I'm
not going to follow organized medicine any more. I'm going to get
healthy. I'm going to start by taking responsibility for my health
outcome. I'm going to fire my MD, and go get an ND, a naturopathic
doctor. I'm going to start working on my foods, my nutrition, my
supplements, and my lifestyle. I'm going to change my life and take
responsibility for the outcome." That's where you get healthy. That's
where you can bypass all that organized medicine.

Again, this is the kind of information that organized medicine hopes
you never hear. They don't want people to bypass their system. They
want people to run through their system like a factory. "Here, take
these pills -- we'll make a dollar every day for each pill." But I
believe you don't need that system. All you need is a naturopathic
physician, a naturopathic approach to life, herbs, good nutrition,
healing foods, natural sunlight, and the list goes on. These are easy
things to accomplish. The answers are quite obvious.


Your health freedoms are at stake right now
Returning to the Foods Supplements Directive in Europe, it's really
just the tip of the iceberg. The effort to outlaw plant extracts,
certain vitamins, and certain minerals is just an extension of the
philosophy that nutrition should be criminalized. It's part of the
belief that people should be controlled and forced into a system of
organized medicine based on huge egos, high profitability, control,
and limiting people's access to information and choices regarding what
they can use to improve their health.
That's why it is important for all of us that the Food Supplements
Directive fails and is ruled illegal. Only when that happens can we
create a system of more freedom, more awareness and more healing.
People need choices. They need to have access to nature and to
nutrition. The very idea that this Food Supplements Directive was even
under consideration is quite maddening. Hopefully, sanity will prevail
and the European Union will not outlaw nutrition.

Here in the United States, we can also hopefully move in the same
positive direction by keeping nutrition freely available, and by
making sure that DSHEA remains in place so that nutritional
supplements remain legal and prescriptions are not required.
Hopefully, we can get some criminal convictions for the real criminals
out there: the people running these pharmaceutical companies, the
decision makers at the FDA, and the people at the top of the hierarchy
in American organized medicine, who are directly responsible for the
deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans each and every year.

If we can put those people behind bars, we can reform the FDA. We can
then start educating people about the real causes of health, about how
to take charge of their health outcome and be healthy for a lifetime.
We can create a whole new society, a whole new generation of healthy
young people who can learn, be creative and be happy. We can see
health care costs plummet in this country. That's really what we need
to see if we're going to be competitive in the global marketplace.

The alternative is to continue down the path of organized medicine. We
will just get sicker, more miserable, and truly more insane as a
nation if things continue. As if we're not insane enough already in
this country, it could get even worse! We've got to reverse that, and
it all starts with nutrition and access to nature.

Don't let the criminals running the organized medicine con outlaw your
access to nature's healing gifts. They want to criminalize nutrition,
and turn healers into convicts. If they succeed, only their own highly
toxic drugs will remain legal, and the only health choice you have
left will be to pick your poison.
