So, in case the hiding spot was effective and you aren't in the know, here it is: There is something called the Codex Alimentarius Treaty ( http://www.codexalimentarius.net/web/index_en.jsp ) and it hides under the premise of good work and a verbose ambiguity in its presentation of the facts. At least on this website, anyway.
The problem with such a written presentation is that it's too boring to maintain one's attention long enough to not fall asleep while reading.
Thus, instead of the uninitiated eventually coming to understand what the Codex intends on making eventually come to pass, only those who are already educated on the subject will take the time to comprehend the Treaty's objective.
This leaves the entire subject either obscure or open to interpretation of others, whom we then accept as experts simply because they seem to have read the damn thing. Thus, we endorse their opinion on the matter in order to have one and seem informed.
According to one of the boards that certified me (effectively becoming my expert on the subject), various governments gathered together and collectively agreed upon a plan of action whose intention is to eventually close down the alternative health care field. I have no idea if this interpretation ( http://www.ntew.net/codex/treaty.html ) is true or not, as the Codex documentation is too dry to discern. But it certainly is unnerving.
Though I can't be sure of the truth, I do know that global governments wanting to prevent prevention in order to protect prescripting so that they can enrich the pharmaceutical industry, thereby eventually lining the pockets of their political campaigns is plausible, probable, and even extremely likely.
Fact is, the alternative healthcare field is harder to control than mainstream medicine with its tightly fisted licensing boards. And, historically, groups who are harder to control are seen as enemies by any government body trying to control them.
Thus, I suppose it is logical that my expert's view of the situation is correct. Global governments will most likely want to make alternative and unlicensed healthcare eventually illegal: As soon as we get used to the idea!
Originally, the timing for "illegal" was set at 2005. However, the date has since been pushed back. Perhaps all that ambiguity is to blame. Ambiguity often leads to failure.
Normally, I'm very non-political and don't write or talk about things like this. I focus on what I can do rather than what I can't, and go about the business of helping rather than complaining.
But this issue is closer to home than I might like it to be. A few years ago I had a staph infection which led to lung surgery. It was Mainstream Medicine that saved my life.
However, staph infections are contagious and when my whole family began suffering with abscess after abscess, Mainstream Medicine could offer nothing outside of lancing (surgical) and thousands of dollars of gut wrenching antibiotics.
We spent the money. We took all the time and the advised precautions, but still we continued to grapple with infection upon infection over a two year period. Finally, I researched the problem on the internet only to find that mega doses of garlic and a five-dollar contraption (make from a nine volt battery, alligator clips and a piece of copper pipe) could cure us, every one of us, in five days--for good. I tried it. And it WORKED!
My family and I have had many such occasions to discover that health lies in the hands of alternative approaches to medicine. Nowadays, just as in my business, I am certified in both arenas of medicine.
So, in my home do I embrace the two?
