The Fall of New Chapter

Posted on March 24th, 2012 to Blog

With the recent fall of New Chapter to global giant Procter & Gamble, many in the natural products industry are wondering: “Is there any companies they won’t be buying??”. “They” is in reference to the many companies that have been steadily gobbling up all sorts of companies, from Honest Tea being purchased by Coca~Cola to Alacer (EmergenC) being purchased by Pfizer.
Many pharmaceutical and multinational corporations already control much of medicine and daily life for many people. This is one of the direct reasons the natural products industry has become a booming billion dollar industry. People desire natural, safe, effective, and inexpensive remedies for many of their problems and the growth of the industry is thanks to their willingness to pay out-of-pocket for their herbs.
Somehow, the so-called ‘alternative’ healers have allowed themselves to be bullied and outlawed for more than one hundred years. The herbalists, the chiropractics, the reflexologists and massage therapists. The nutritionists, the people who want to heal with animals, music therapy and crystal therapy. These are all forms of healing and one should have the freedom to choose any kind of healing one sees fit.
This idea that there is only one kind of medicine is absolute foolishness. The idea that there is only one form of acceptable medicine is akin to thinking that there is only one acceptable religion, or one acceptable diet, or even one acceptable language. Yes this close minded approach to medicine has only hurt the progress of humanity in the long run. The greed of man has manifested itself through the banks, the insurance companies, the big builders of hospitals and the big manufacturers of medical equipment. All of this has bore an industry that has produced some incredible technologies and wildly new forms of medicine that are potentially unpredictable and dangerous. Radium, for example, along with the entire cadre of radioactive medicine that has been put upon the public for the past century. It is a proven fact that radiation and chemotherapy have killed or hastened the deaths of those with terminal cancers or illnesses. It is a little known fact that George Washington died from excessive doses of Mercury from his “heroic” physicians at the time.
The end game, if you are not already aware of it, is the global takeover of all systems. We are effectively already in their desired system. It goes a bit like this:
1) Multinational Corporations manufacture products that are toxic, hazardous, cancer causing substances (this includes synthetic pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals, plastics, fungicide, herbicide, pesticide, artificial fertilizers and hormones,  etc)
2) The products and/or the chemical by-products of the manufactured goods go into the air, the food, the water, and then into us through a variety of means. These chemicals are poison, there is no other way to slice it. These poisons damage our bodies and cellular DNA which creates various diseases and cancers.
3) These same companies then sell us the “medicine” to treat our illnesses or mitigate our symptoms. The problem with synthetic pharmaceuticals is that they rarely work without delivering an excessive imbalance in another part of the body, thus causing often fatal side-effects.
What does this lead us to?
The side-effects of herbs are scarce and often benign or mild in nature, yet they deliver incredibly powerful medicine. Herbs are most times better medicines that pharmaceuticals, due to their highly complex and synergistic nature. The pharmaceutical companies (who are now going into the supplement business) would have the public believe that it is better to use the isolated constituents of herbs, rather than the entire herb itself. But this I’m afraid is simply an effort to enforce stronger regulations upon the herbal industry and ban those who attempt to make their own medicines from doing so. Keep in mind that regulation means exorbitant fees paid to the FDA in order to approve an extracted chemical constituent. High fees keep the game rigged now and allow only the largest of Multinationals to market drugs to the public.
What does this mean for the future? Are we doomed to a future of highly regulated herbal products where only a handful of companies control everything we put in our bodies? It seems that if we are not currently there, then we are certainly on the way. It is imperative that individuals with integrity begin to stand up and call out the heads of these companies. When you go high enough, it always goes back to the same small group of bankers, industry elites, corporate-government revolving door criminalia. And it is time to call them out. They know what they are doing and it is time that people stand up and say no, this is America and we have the right to liberties. And we must take back our liberty and we must take back our health.

“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”
