Dr. Benjamin rush, who was one of the signers of the United States Declaration of Independence, said, “Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of men and companies, and deny equal privileges to others, and will constitute the Bastille of medical science.”
That time has come.
If you think my above statement is harsh, you are not alone, as many people are unaware of, or oblivious of the fact that whatever freedom of choice in healthcare we once had is under attack and being taken away.
What do we mean by medical freedom? It is not about choosing an insurance company or a doctor who’s on the list of preferred providers. It is the innate right to decide how you will take care of your own body, including: the quality of foods you eat, the personal choice of whether or not to vaccinate, the right to take herbal medicines and pure nutritional supplements, the availability of alternative therapies to overcome a health problem, and the accessibility to information on these treatments.
The following headlines paint a disturbing picture of recent attempts to eliminate our inherent right of choice:
· Armed agents kidnap child from mother who used holistic treatments instead of pharmaceutical drugs to treat condition (Reference 1 below)
· Nevada Senate Bill 412 to establish medical monopoly, squelch natural and alternative medicine (Reference 2 below)
· Vaccine Bill violates Human Rights (Reference 3 below)
· FDA Destruction Of The Dietary Supplement Industry (Reference 4 below)
It is human nature to, at first glance, dismiss the above articles as incredulous, especially when hit with the stark reality that you have less and less control over your own body. But the fact is that simple things like natural herbs and non-invasive, alternative health treatments are being banned, while the use of invasive, toxic drugs is being implemented and even enforced, by those who profit from disease and suffering.
Author and natural healthcare advocate, Mike Adams, comments on this current threat to our healthcare freedom:
“They want to control your choices while giving you the illusion of choice.”
“If we do nothing and stay silent, it is guaranteed that our access to natural remedies and honest food will be stolen from us by tyrannical bureaucrats who incessantly work to protect the financial interests of Big Pharma and the sick-care industry.” (Reference 5 below)
This very real threat to healthcare choice is transpiring, not in dictatorial countries on the other side of the planet, but here – to all of us – now. And it is not just focused on the general public, but on many innovative researchers and doctors, who are being threatened and prosecuted for their findings and work in alternative medicine. A recent example is one of the most well respected alternative doctors in the world, Dr Andrew Weil, who was attacked for his views on vaccinations and alternative treatments.

Professor/Dr. Rothbart, a pioneer in the field of chronic pain elimination for over 40 years, knows well the danger of being on the forefront of alternative research. His book, Forever Free From Chronic Pain describes his experiences in detail.
It has been our policy to keep medical politics out of our newsletters and website, as we strive to make them not just informative, but positive as well. But in the interest of our patients, friends, and everyone who cares about the health and welfare of their body, we made an exception to our rule, hoping that you, too, will take a stand and let your voice be heard.
Don’t allow your body – the most valuable possession you have – to be left in the hands of those who profit from keeping you ill. We urge you to sign petitions and get involved in projects that protect your healthcare freedom of choice. Here are a few to get you started:
