Embracing Natural Healthcare
I lost my best friend. However, over time my anger did not subside and I did not know how to alleviate it. What was the cause of my sustained anger?
All of those issues made me angry but I think it was the fact that I did not take a big enough stand, ask enough questions and challenge the system that angered me the most. The drug prescribed was simply used as a source of iodine. You see the underlining problem is that companies can’t patent natural ingredients (which have no side effects). Therefore, if they want to make money on a natural ingredient like iodine they have to make a synthetic version that has life-threatening side effects.
A study on iodine has shown that the most decreased urine iodine concentration was detected in the subgroups with arrhythmias (3). The question is whether or not he would still be here if he was given five dollars worth of natural iodine. The drug he was given is a toxic form of sustained release iodine. An interesting observation is that the antiarrhythmic drug becomes effective when the body has accumulated approximately 1.5 gm of iodine. This is EXACTLY the amount of iodine retained by the human body when iodine sufficiency is achieved following natural iodine supplementation (4).
Would He Still Be Here If He was Given Five Dollars Worth of Natural Iodine
After that experience, I felt I had to stand up for the public that doesn’t understand the politics, the money trail, the lack of transparency in medicine and the public’s blinding trust in those in white coats.
It is known that it takes medicine about twenty-five years before they will adopt a proven nutritional solution. We saw this with folic acid and neural tube defects. Twenty-five years after the research proved the association between folic acid and neural tube defects, medicine began to recommended folic acid in a prenatal vitamin (5). That was twenty-five years that newborns were at risk for no reason. We saw it with vitamin D that is just lately become acceptable in conventional medicine. However, there is still not widespread acceptance of B vitamins for high levels of homocysteine, chiropractic for chronic pain, and on and on and on.
My sister and I created Health Missions because we were tired of lies. We wanted the public to embrace natural solutions of healthcare and we committed to publishing studies to better exposure natural health solutions to the public.
