The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers

EUROPE & UK banning herbal medicines

This is just getting so out of control. Someone in the UK needs to overthrow that god forsaken, greed driven monarchy.

awwww man SIMMY, what a huge disappointment. I can see how you got excited about the first article. The second is deflating. THANK YOU for keeping us updated.

* deflated sigh * is not as good news as I thought...


THMPD will severely limit consumer choice

"While this is good news for herbalists who use finished products, it is important to realise that full implementation of THMPD (Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive) will greatly affect consumers, who will be unable to buy unlicensed, finished herbal products over the counter or from the Internet. They would need to have an official consultation with an herbalist in order to have access to unlicensed products."

Our Beloved Earth gives us everything Humans need ... Food ... Medications in the form of plants and liquids, etc. ... Hemp as cures for cancer for clothes and furniture and oil etc.etc. ...
Here in Holland there is an attempt by politicians to eliminate the medicinal herbs, but the opposition rebelled, and the legislative proposal did not go through there ...

Over Here in Holland are enough health care stores who sell great stuff ... all organic
and if you want something they don't have ... it is there the next day ...

SIMMY, thank you for the update. It only makes sense to me that natural remedies are not money makers. Because it has a long steeped history in curing illnesses, its not allowing for growth for the pharmaceutical companies. Im sure Big Pharma wants a piece of the action. What better way to do it than to make people get a prescription for natural remedies and Big Pharma can make you a capsule "containing" everything you need......for a bigger profit.......yeah right......what is really going to be in those capsules maybe more sickening than people will be aware of. :(   thanks again SIMMY

This guy said it all:

"People have always used herbal medicine, and 80% of people in the world still rely on it for their primary form of healthcare. Therefore, since humans are still around, it actually seems that holistic medicine is actually effective. We have been around millions of years with plants to support us; "modern" medicine as you call it has been around less than 150 years. It's a blip on the screen of humanity. And the "evidence-based practice" has been practiced for millions of years. It's actually "modern medicine" that is the toddler here. 

And although many lives have been saved, many lives have also been lost, pathologized, and traumatized through "modern" medicine. Poor people, people of color, immigrants, have been tested on, and their lives lost, much like the Tuskeegee experiment, over and over again, and it's not a thing of the past. 

In the US, the correct use of pharmaceuticals is the #4 leading cause of death. The incorrect use of pharmaceuticals is the #3 leading cause of death. Doesn't that tell you that pharmaceuticals are actually quite dangerous? 

Part of the beauty of herbal medicine is that many people can practice it, with the correct training. Gardeners can grow medicine, people can make their own tinctures and salves and teas, and use them to preserve their health quite effectively. Part of training is learning to respect the plants because some can kill you, and learning how to read the studies (many are financed by pharmaceutical companies, many have rats on a diet of that root, which would never be a recommended dosage). If you don't believe it, go talk to an herbalist whereever you are. 

Access to medicine making and herbalism means that the health of a given community is in their own hands, which is quite powerful."

(I think this is what they want to stop. Our power to chose what is good for ourselves!)
