We must support a new resolution that officially recognizes what the FDA and FTC refuse to acknowledge—that vitamin D can help us fight COVID. Action Alert!
Congressman Glenn Grotham (R-WI) has introduced a House Resolution to “recognize the significant role vitamin D may play in the fight against COVID-19.” If passed, the resolution will encourage official recognition of vitamin D as effective in preventing serious COVID-19 infection. Supporting this resolution also builds momentum towards further recognition of natural medicine’s role in treating and preventing illnesses—even as the federal government seeks to undermine the free flow of information about these benefits.
Rep. Grotham’s press release cites, among other evidence, an initiative from an international alliance of researchers and doctors calling on governments to raise the daily recommended intake of vitamin D from 400 IU to 4,000 IU to reduce the severity of COVID-19.
Many in the natural health community have long understood the importance of vitamin D for preventing serious COVID-19 cases. Studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is strongly correlated to COVID-19 mortality.
Rep. Grotham’s resolution underscores the absurdity of the federal government’s current position. As we’ve been reporting for months now, doctors and clinics have been attacked by the FDA and the FTC for sharing information about how vitamin D, in addition to other natural medicines, can help with COVID. Why? Because vitamin D isn’t FDA-approved for the treatment of COVID, and only FDA-approved drugs can claim to treat or prevent a disease.
This goes beyond just vitamin D, of course. We reported recently that Thailand approved the herb Andrographis paniculate to treat early COVID-19 infection. Other natural medicines like zinc, quercetin, and melatonin have shown promise in fighting COVID-19—so much promise that former President Trump’s medical team used natural medicines to treat his COVID infection. Hospital protocols in the US are even including vitamins D, C, and B, as well as zinc and melatonin, in their COVID-19 treatment protocols.
Older Americans and communities of color are at greatest risk of death from COVID-19, yet the government is blocking all of us from learning about how natural medicine can help keep us healthy. This is murderous bureaucratic indifference to what is happening to people, especially older Americans who are most at risk.
There is a way forward. ANH is building support for a legislative proposal that will allow companies to cite reputable studies describing the benefits of natural medicines. Making this information accessible will offer Americans more healthcare choices outside of expensive, dangerous, and often ineffective prescription drugs. Take action below to help us get this message to every member of Congress.
Action Alert! Support Rep. Grothman’s resolution and ANH’s legislative proposal to reform a healthcare system that blocks access to natural treatments that generally cannot go through FDA approval. Please send your message immediately.
