The Medsafe-Big Pharma Agenda:
DESTROY NATURAL MEDICINE IN NZ
CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE
Many doctors are now embracingnatural medicine – a good sign to allbut the pharmaceutical giants that view this development as an eco-nomic threat, and are using govern-ments to quash it.However, the battle involves muchmore than mere economics. Formillions of people this is a matter of life or death, as they rely on naturalmedicine to maintain good health ortreat illness.More than 70% of all New Zealand-ers take nutritional supplements,and if these become unavailablethanks to the government’s follow-ing the orders of the pharmaceuticalgiants, their – and perhaps your own – health will suffer as a result.Now is the time to act. This is of theutmost seriousness.
* Medsafe is the branch of the Minis-try of Health charged with regulatingmedicines and medical devices. Theyare now trying to define anything of therapeutic value as a medicine”.
What this meansfor you and your family:
Your access to nutritional supplements of all kindswould become severely restricted and/or made prohibi-tively expensive.
In Australia where this has alreadyhappened, more than 600 products are no longeravailable. Naturopaths and health food stores are be-ing forced to shut down.
The Australian people are noteven permitted to import many natural products for per-sonal use from other countries. (Queensland excepted.)In NZ, nutritional medicine, traditional Chinese and Indian(ayurvedic) medicine, Chiropractors, sports nutrition peo-ple – and even Maori herbal medicine – are now underthreat by a bureaucracy that is making up the law as itgoes along.
Medsafe now maintains that it is illegal for any naturalhealth practitioner
to even refer you to the literatureon nutritional supplements
! No recommendations, nowebsites, not even articles or books! Medsafe says thatthis means that they are “making a claim” and they wantto forbid it,
even if these “claims” can be proved
This is medical fascism. There is no other term for it.Herbal and Nutritional medicine often WORKS so WELLthat it has taken away business from the pharmaceuti-cal companies. Now these companies have apparentlydecided that they must be stopped at any cost.Medsafe and Big Pharma don’t want an educated public,questioning their doctor and using nutritional therapies toget well and stay well. They don’t seem to want a healthypopulation, either, that doesn’t need its drugs.
Does this all sound familiar? The NZ Labour-led gov-ernment tried to pass an “anti-vitamin” law in 2007 but un-
able to get sufcient support, they “shelved” it. After that,
the bureaucracy – Medsafe – began harassing the naturalhealth industry. Unless Medsafe are stopped as well,there will soon be no alternative health care available in
New Zealand. We must all ght this, together.
There is a world-wide economic war being waged by thepharmaceutical industry against Traditional Medicine andNatural Health – and the NZ government is helping to wageit. Here is WHAT YOU CAN DO TO STOP THE AGGRESSIONAGAINST NATURAL HEALTH:
