I guess you also feel that the FDA is the Last Word in medications?

You didn’t know that the FDA will NOT promote ANY Natural medication?
Surprisingly, they DO NOT and WILL NOT!

Why?

Because Natural medications & Cures CANNOT be protected by a Patent!
Yes, that is true… The almighty $$$ at work again!

There really are Natural Medications that really DO WORK… and work well without dangerous after effects.

Same way with most doctors… They don’t get their CUT from any prescriptions!!

There ARE some really GOOD doctors who KNOW about natural medications and promote them quite well!

Have you heard of the GMOs that are being shoved down our throats?
Genetically Modified Organisms…
It has been proven that GMO foods have caused many many problems for all that continue to eat GMO foods.

Why aren’t they BANNED, you ask?... Good question…

It turns out that the past chief of Monsanto Chemical, which has developed most of the GMO’d seeds to grow GMO’d food, is now the Head of the FDA... Getting the picture?!

The FDA is part of the SWAMPLAND that Trump is trying to clean… The FDA is as CORRUPT as CORRUPT as it can be.

Now, how would you describe anyone who really had faith in the FDA to make sure whatever they allowed to be marketed to be in YOUR real BEST INTEREST and be as SAFE as it could be?

I’ll let you answer that question… :) LOL

The FDA thanks people like you…

Did you know that Aloe is very good for you?
Rub Aloe juice on a burn for great help… Aloe is also good for you in many many other ways.

Garlic, Spinach, Extra Virgin Olive oil, Cinnamon, and many many other natural things are also very good for you!
... and many doctors will agree!!

Anyone that refuses to eat any of the GREAT things that can Help you, are really hiding their heads in the sand.

I didn’t say anything about the FDA and I didn’t say anything about you. If you want to take medical advice from random sources, that’s up to you, but don’t blame it on politics. Here’s the thing, your doctors spent a lifetime studying medicine, learning knowledge built up from thousands of doctors over the last couple centuries, you don’t know more than them. If they can’t get it right 100% of the time, how often will you or random people on youtube get it right? Not very often. And that goes for other sciences too. I just attended an interesting lecture where scientists were able to take 15/100ths of a second blip of wave data and figure out it was 2 massive black holes crashing into each other over a billion years ago. From that short blip they could determine their mass, location/distance, distance apart when they collided, speed, mass after collision, and lots more. The machine that detected the blip is so sensitive it can detect movement of atoms in its own structure. It seems unbelievable but that’s the culmination of 40+ years of planning, 100 years of thinking about this idea, and centuries of smart people studying physics, chemistry, and engineering. Medicine is no less amazing. Trust your doctor and if you don’t trust your doctor, get a new doctor. But the internet is not a replacement.

You said you took your advice from your doctor and reliable sources like the Harvard Health.

Chances are your doctor will only prescribe RX’s for you (FDA)...

Looks like Harvard Health just might cover healthful foods, etc.
Now, does the Harvard Health ever mention any of the natural foods that were covered in my Original post?
If not, I would highly question what they DO suggest!
What kind of Foods DO they talk about?

Another source of medical help, etc. 'Know The Cause'... Another reliable source.

Who said anything about Black Holes? It’s amazing how things can be twisted out of sight!

The FDA is corrupt… So, if you rely on your RX’s from your doctor, it is NOT reliable as being good for you!

- Joe Lyddon

My doctor has a lot of good advice on his website about eating right and exercising, which he also preaches during checkups. And when I injured my shoulder, instead of pills or surgery he gave me exercises which I thought was insane but it worked. And when he prescribes medicine, it’s going to be from a source that is more trustworthy than some guy making pills in his garage out of god knows what which he sells through youtube videos with robot voices. You don’t need the internet to tell you that spinach is good for you, or that you need to eat less and exercise more. We know that and our doctors tell us that.

You said you took your advice from your doctor and reliable sources like the Harvard Health.

I don’t know anything about that guy or his blog and I don’t want to waste my time checking qualifications of every random blogger and vlogger. It’s easier to take advice from the expert I pay to give me advice. The guy who graduated medical school, rather than a guy who was a medic 50 years ago.

The FDA is corrupt… So, if you rely on your RX s from your doctor, it is NOT reliable as being good for you!
- Joe Lyddon

This stuff about the FDA is politically motivated, not medical advice. You’ve been manipulated into hating things that are for your own good. We need oversight because time and again companies have put profit ahead of the consumer and health of the public, and value short term gains over long term. Likewise, government needs oversight or politicians will put their pocket books ahead of the citizenry.

One of other chronic conditions I have is RA, rheumatoid arthritis, and have been on pain meds for about 20+ years.
I have tried one of the new FDA approved drugs and after a couple of months I lost the sense of feeling in my feet so, even though it really worked well, I had to stop taking it to stop further nerve damage. I have not used that drug for quite a few years and my doctor told me that this is probably permanent.

I don’t want to try the RA specific drugs (I dont want to list any of them …. I can’t spell most them) because of the side effects as they include way too many for someone my age.

Right now I am using CBD tinctures, the non-euphoric/psychoactive chemicals of marijuana, which are working better than the pain med or the RA specific drugs without side effects or being habit forming! The CBD drops havve reduced my dependence on the opoid pain killer. Thank goodness the state of California has decriminalized the use of marijuana.

In my opinion, just like in woodworking, in many cases there are alternative solutions to a problem!

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is supposed to be something we should be able to place our Trust in…

They don’t want you to eat Organic non GMO foods which is better than the GMO garbage they want you to eat.

They don’t even want the food you eat to be LABELED as being GMO or NON GMO! Corruption, big time!

To be safe, one should have a GOOD doctor/expert in nutrition that really KNOWS what is GOOD and what is BAD… and not necesarily an MD! Most MD’s don’t care… They treat the Symptoms NOT the cause… and usually with patented non Natural drugs because it took them 8-10 years to learn how to do it.

We CANNOT rely on the FDA to do the job they’re supposed to be doing! Swampland!!

Not paranoid… just smarter than before…

Everytime someone uses the phrase, “Drain the swamp!” I think of that scene in Cheers where Woody is running for mayor and says something about killing the rats in his uncle’s barn. I couldn’t find the scene but here is one before that is reflective of real life. People listen to what politicians say and instead of watching what they do.

If a medicine works, it isn’t called “Alternative Medicine”. Lots of people react differently to different medications. The FDA is chartered to work with pharmaceutical companies to ensure maximum effectivity of medicines. Stuff happens. Just an example- I can eat peanut butter, but some people can actually die from eating it. Our bodies are different enough that not every medication is going to work well on every person. The FDA is not the bad guy, here.

Good point. Anyone could put anything in a pill and say it would cure everything, and people used to do that. (they still do that). Or outright put poisons in products (also still happens). Which is why we have the FDA. Read up on the dangers of the 19th and early 20th centuries, and how many people died or suffered illnesses or birth defects because companies put profit ahead of public health and then muddle the political landscape with false science. Boric acid in milk to hide spoilage. Arsenic in makeups, jewelry, clothing, toys, and wallpaper. Lead in paint and water pipes (which unfortunately continued in America up through the 60’s, long after it was banned everywhere else). Gas companies would shut off gas at night to save money and then turn it back on in the morning, killing people and causing fires. The FDA might not be a perfect institution, none are, because they are just groups of people and people will always be fallible. But we still need organizations like the FDA, EPA, CDC, etc.

One last comment…

In my original post, the main subject matter covered the use of Natural plants NOT Compounds made for Sale by companies that could be poisoning us unknowingly… The FDA has nothing to do with controlling the Natural plants mentioned.

The main point was to give you, the public, more of an education of what was available from Natural plants that could improve your health…

Things went on to other subjects… I provided information about Know The Cause, a health program, which ALSO is connected with several Medical Doctors that agree with Doug Kaufman, who has years of experience in the medical field, BUT, is not a Dr. and he admits it. You can take his word with a grain of salt… BUT, if you want the words of highly educated Doctors (MD’s etc.) they are also part of his program, they re there.

Then came the FDA… In the beginning, they were good and respected… NOW, they are not… They have been invaded by large chemical companies whose only concern is in Making $$$... and as a result the FDA has been weakened to the point that they are no longer who they used to be… worse… much worse… They don’t have the time or the resources to test and control everything, so they allow the Makers of the products to do their OWN Testing FOR the FDA. This is like the Fox guarding the Hen house… example: the GMO seeds, etc. ... Laws have even been passed that protect the FDA from law suits by allowing BAD products to be marketed, such s GMO’d products, etc. These laws being LOBBIED by the FDA heads to protect the Chemical companies, as well, against law suits… A very corrupt situation… NO where close to what they used to be. Maybe the FDA still does some good… just be careful and double check everything. It’s a matter of Life and Death.

So, that’s the story…

Go back to the Original post… and learn how you can prevent Strokes, Heart attacks, etc. by using simple plants available at your local market… of course, only if you want to… Gamble any way you choose…

Once upon a time the FDA was good and could be depended upon…
It can no longer be depended upon… The way it handles GMO proves it.
The GMO crap could be responsible for the uprising of old diseases being brought back… Chicken pox, shingles, & others… (maybe all of the “refugees”, who have never been vaccinated as most of our children have been, are causing part of the problem?)

The flu vaccines are in a group all of their own… a real crap shoot… they really don’t KNOW what they’re doing… They’re just guessing… Just like this last season… they missed the target.

You take what you want… So will I…

Why isn’t the FDA willing to be in favor of having foods labeled “GMO” or “NON GMO”? Seems like very simple thing to me… It’s because the head of the FDA is from Monsanto, the biggest maker of GMO seeds which they want to be sold worldwide… The FDA told Monsanto to do their OWN testing & present results to them; Fox in the Hen House… DUH! GMO’d foods can be the cause of many many problems… The FDA will never acknowledge that fact… They are corrupt. We should be able to know what is GMO & what is not GMO food! It would result in too much of a LOSS of $$$ to Monsanto & other companies involved with GMO seed development.

They are coming back because people are not vaccinating their kids. The vaccinations are not 100% effective but they are effective. When a bunch of unvaccinated kids are running around, it drastically increases the risk to kids who are vaccinated but for one reason or another didn’t develop an immunity. A local kid died a few days ago because her parents didn’t believe she needed a flu shot. She got the flu and died 2 days later. Not because of the FDA, not because of GMOs, but because the parents didn’t get her vaccinated.

Bingo. I’m not agreeing with you on much of this, Joe, but you nailed it on the flu shot and the epidemic this season. It’s a crap shoot. They take a guess at what strain will hit and that’s the vaccine they pick. This year they picked wrong. Total joke. I never get one and rarely get sick.

I did get the flu a few years ago. It was bad, with a high fever. In my delirium I kept hearing the song Turn, Turn, Turn go through my head. Obviously, it was the Byrd flu.

I did get the flu a few years ago. It was bad, with a high fever. In my delirium I kept hearing the song Turn, Turn, Turn go through my head. Obviously, it was the Byrd flu.

The flu shots this year MISSED the target… They guessed wrong!!
- Joe Lyddon

There are many strains of flu virus. The basic flu shot contains 3 flu strains. There is another with 4 strains but most insurance companies won’t pay for it. My understanding is that both flu shots do include the H3N2 virus which is the really nasty one and most resistant to vaccines. So if you get the H3 flu then the vaccine will be less effective but if you get another strain of flu, the vaccine will be more effective.
