Ah, here is summer at last, with its strong solar rays that kill viruses and boost vitamin D levels. Just what the doctor ordered! In this issue of Vitality, we return to our core values of freedom of choice in health care, which is under threat once again.
Firstly, we find out in Helke Ferrie’s feature that the College of Physicians and Surgeons is seeking a return to an outdated medical model by proposing a policy to wipe out access to natural and alternative medicine. Specifically, the CPSO is getting ready to clamp down on Ontario doctors, and stop them from offering the public any therapies that do not conform to the rigid Western medical model. So our ability to choose, for example, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for hot flashes, or nutritional medicine for heart disease, or anything considered ‘alternative’ would be stopped in its tracks.
The second threat to our freedom of choice in healthcare comes in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only are natural treatments and preventive measures being denied by medical authorities, they are also being censored by social media platforms and news agencies.
So what health-promoting measures do public health authorities have to offer us instead? Even though there is no definitive proof backed by independent research that the mRNA vaccine prevents the spread of this virus – it is what the health authorities are relying on heavily to end the pandemic – to the exclusion of all other drugs, strategies, and therapies.
And instead of any real debate on the pros and cons of injecting people with the vaccine, or more accurately the mRNA experimental gene therapy, all we see on big media are pro-drug stories that discredit the most basic immune-boosting strategies, while at the same time ignoring information about reported side effects of vaccination (e.g. blood clots, Bell’s Palsy, strokes, neurological disorders, and even death).
This lopsided approach to pandemic reporting is making it difficult for those who wish to make a fully informed choice about prevention and treatment, including the question of vaccine safety. So I fail to see how this serves the best interests of public health.
Fortunately, there are dedicated health professionals the world over who are daring to share their health advice even if it goes against the prevailing medical narrative. Many of these, such as Dr. David Brownstein, have had their helpful videos removed from Youtube, and yet they persist in trying to help the public prevent and treat coronavirus without drugs (despite being penalized by the US FTC).
There’s even a group of doctors in our own backyard, called the “Canadian Physicians for Science and Truth” who have instigated a Declaration and are asking everyone to sign it. The Declaration reads (in part):
“On April 30, 2021, Ontario’s physician licensing body, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, issued a statement forbidding physicians from questioning or debating any or all of the official measures imposed in response to COVID-19… The CPSO is also ordering physicians to violate the sacred duty of informed consent – which is the process by which the patient/public is fully informed of the risks, benefits and any alternatives to the treatment or intervention, before consent is given…
By ordering physicians to be silent and follow only one narrative, or else face discipline and censure, the CPSO is asking us to violate our conscience, our professional ethics, the Nuremberg code and the scientific pursuit of truth. We will never comply and will always put our patients first.” You can find the full text of the Declaration posted on their website at: https://canadianphysicians.org/
Meantime, Dr. Zoltan Rona, who has been with us throughout the pandemic offering advice on keeping well, has written a feature this month entitled “Preventing Blood Clots Naturally”. This will be of interest to those who are worried that blood clot formation has become an increasingly common reaction to vaccination.
