Cronyism in healthcare is killing us. The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the failings of a health system that relies on super expensive, patent-protected pharmaceutical drugs to treat chronically sick people rather than preventing chronic disease with inexpensive, safe, and affordable natural medicines. In fact, the government doesn’t even want you to know about the scientifically-proven benefits of natural products like vitamin D, because these are not, and can never be, FDA approved drugs, which alone can make claims to treat disease.
We’re fighting back against the government cronyism that prevents Americans from using supplements and other natural products to stay healthy.
Take vitamin D, for example, which is a key immune system regulator. Studies have shown that people with especially low D are more vulnerable to COVID-19. Yet the FDA and FTC are censoring doctors, clinics, and companies from disseminating this basic information to the public. Why? Because supplements compete with drugs, and the user fees the FDA collects from Big Pharma are a substantial source of funding for the agency. Supplements also generally cannot be patent-protected like drugs can, so they can’t afford FDA-approval and so cannot make disease claims.
Doctors in the US and around the world are reporting success using high dose intravenous vitamin C (IVC) to treat COVID-19 patients. But doctors, clinics, or companies that talk about using IVC to treat COVID-19 risk fines and jail time from the federal government. This cannot continue.
We need to reform this system that not only bars the use, but even the mention, of natural remedies that have not been, and never can be, put through the multi-billion dollar FDA approval process.
