Another great article from NaturalNews.com, but I would like to add my own thoughts on what they say. I completely agree with their comments about the purpose of the AMA (and the equivalent association in Canada), as well as the statement that Standard Medicine is all about making money, not about curing patients.
I would also like to add that this article mentions a couple of times the “taking” of the right nutrients. This implies supplementation and I am very much a believer in supplementation for therapeutic reasons only, not long term use. I firmly believe that eating a variety of foods, grown locally, organically, eaten seasonally and fresh is the best way to get all the nutrients you need and in the best form for your body to assimilate them. I am of course aware that that’s an ideal based on those practices being followed by consumers, high quality (nutrient rich) soils, proper crop rotation, and humane animal husbandry methods. Ideal doesn’t mean impossible though!
Here’s the article:
Today we know more about vitamins, minerals and nutrition in general then ever before, but at the same time there are various elements of the media and medical community that want to keep everyone in the dark about the true role and power that vitamins play in our health and life.
It’s been known since the turn of the last century that the cause of nearly all degenerative diseases as well as the weakening of the immune system that makes one susceptible to communicable diseases is deficiencies of various key nutrients or total lack of them altogether.
Of course this knowledge has been carefully and cleverly hidden from the public for over one hundred years now since they can’t have people learning that they can be healthy merely by taking the right nutrients and the right amounts of each. That’s why as is the case with vitamin C and many other vitamins, the RDA for most nutrients is pathetically low and barely enough to keep you alive, let alone for you to be healthy and strong.
The war against natural medicine
Since the mid 1800s, the naturopathic doctors have ceaselessly and constantly come under attack by the MDs and organized medical community. As the mechanized view of the body and the germ theory of disease began to become more accepted along with the belief that chemicals and drugs were the way of the future, the attacks became more frequent, bold and progressed to outright lies at times. That’s because the MD, with his surgical procedures, chemical drugs, fancy concoctions and useless medical terminology had much more potential for financial gain than did the naturopath or “country doctor”. They saw the country doctor as a threat to their growing influence and livelihood as well. In fact the medical terminology that doctors use was created precisely to make the average person feel ignorant and stupid and to keep people from ever trying to diagnose or cure themselves.
The AMA is all about doctors
The American Medical Association (AMA) was formed in 1847 specifically to protect the profits and practices of doctors, the MD, not the “country doctor” who they came to view as backwards and outdated. Of course they know that the methods and cures of the country doctor were far better, cheaper and safer than the drugs and surgery approach of the “medical doctor”, also known as the “Slash and Burn” method, but it was all about the profits, so if the AMA was going to represent any group they knew that the MDs offered them the greatest chance at profits, growth and power. The AMA is a union created specifically for doctors, NOT patients, not to find cures, not to prevent disease, but to protect the profits of doctors. Just like any union, its job is to protect the jobs and income of its members. The AMA is not the wonderful, benign or righteous agency that it tries to convince the world that it is.
Western medical establishments know that nutrition prevents disease and cures most non-communicable diseases. Nutrition can also help to fight communicable diseases too. That’s why they work so hard to suppress this knowledge; it’s also why they’re working so hard to get nutrients like vitamin c labeled as a “drug”. They haven’t yet, but they’re not giving up on this either.
Most doctors will not tell you the power of nutrition, even if they believe in it themselves. This is why it’s always best to educate yourself as much as possible on this subject and take control of your own health.
