Americans ask Trump to add alternative health care to Obamacare repeal

by Alex Jones and Dr. Edward Group

With the future of our nation’s health care reform and the repeal and replacement of Obamacare still unclear, Dr. Edward F. Group III and Alex Jones are reaching out to Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price on behalf of millions of concerned families and thousands of health practitioners in an open letter encouraging him to assemble a Health and Wellness Advisory Team to focus on the root cause of our nation’s healthcare problems, as well as prevention and the implementation of proven natural remedies.

Price has the responsibility to advise the President on matters of health, welfare, and income security programs across America. The Open Letter urges Price to assemble a team of scientists, experts, and independent researchers with no ties to the pharmaceutical, food, or chemical industries. Their job will be to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of all artificial ingredients, genetically modified foods, colors, dyes, fluoride, herbicides, pesticides, phthalates, refined sugars, preservatives, and other toxic compounds added to or used in food and beverage production which have been linked to the cause of many degenerative diseases.

“Our existing allopathic model treats the symptoms of a disease, not the root cause. It does not encourage wellness or disease prevention,” said Dr. Group, Infowars Health Advisor and Founder of Global Healing Center. “The root cause of a disease is the accumulation and exposure to toxins that pollute our air, food, and water. We know they damage our health, make us sick, and harm the earth.”

Dr. Group and his team of healthcare practitioners are willing to volunteer their time, effort, and expertise to begin this conversation and work towards healing America. America can’t be great again until we make America healthy again.

An Open Letter to Sec. Tom Price:

Dear Secretary Price,

My name is Dr. Edward F. Group III. I have spent over 20 years studying natural medicine. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic, Naturopathic Practitioner, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Holistic Healing Practitioner, and Certified Clinical Herbalist. I am also a Diplomate of the American Clinical Board of Nutrition (DACBN), the American Board of Functional Medicine (DABFM), and the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (CBCN). I am a veteran of the United States Army and attended Harvard and MIT business schools.

I would like to congratulate you on your new appointment. As our new Secretary of Health and Human Services, you have the privilege and responsibility of making the most important decisions about the health of all Americans. The most significant way to make America great again is to make America healthy again. Secretary Price, America needs an independent advisory committee to advocate for disease prevention and the implementation of proven natural remedies to address the root cause of America’s health problems.

Over the years, my focus has been evaluating the root cause of disease. As part of true healthcare reform and the challenge of repealing and improving on the Affordable Care Act, I would like to volunteer my time, efforts, and expertise to begin this conversation and work towards healing America.

Here is how I propose we work together:

Address the Root Cause of America’s Health Problems
Our current healthcare system does not promote wellness, proven natural remedies, or prevention-based medicine. The allopathic model treats the symptoms of disease, not the root cause. The root cause of disease is exposure to, and the accumulation of toxins that pollute our air, food, and water. We know they damage our health, make us sick, and harm the earth. Lifestyle modifications are known to dramatically reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes, which represent the majority of healthcare spending. To change healthcare, we must acknowledge why we are becoming ill, overweight, sterile, and mentally unstable:

– Toxic Chemicals: Review and replace the use of all toxic, endocrine-disrupting, human-made chemicals such as herbicides, VOCs, fire retardants, pesticides, and phthalates that are destroying our bodies, soil, and earth.

– GMO Foods: Review the production of all GMO food crops which will also reduce the use of toxic herbicides and pesticides. We know that the health of gut flora is closely tied to the health of soil flora.  GMO foods are saturated with toxic chemicals that are unhealthy and cause disease.

– Toxic Food and Beverages: Review and study the use of all artificial ingredients, sweeteners, colors, dyes, chemicals, refined sugars, alcohol, MSG, preservatives, and synthetic compounds added to our food and beverages. Determine the safety of each by the use and funding of third-party research groups.

– Vaccines: Allocate funding and appoint a third-party research team free of ties to the pharmaceutical industry to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of vaccines and flu shots, and, specifically, study the health of vaccinated children compared to unvaccinated children.

– Toxic Water: Establish a team of qualified scientists focused on cleaning up our water supplies as well as municipal water. Review the use of fluoride and chlorine and determine ways to eliminate chemicals, herbicide, heavy metals, fracking compounds, and prescription drug residue found in the water supply.

– EMF Exposure: Establish a team of independent scientists to review the health-depleting effects of wifi, smart meters, cell phones, cell phone towers, body scanners in airports, and other forms of harmful EMF exposure.

– Toxic Air: In the last ten years, respiratory disease in the US has moved from the eighth to the third highest cause of death. Asthma rates have more than doubled in the western world and Alzheimer’s disease, a condition that is caused by aluminum poisoning, has also skyrocketed.

Establish Freedom of Choice in Healthcare
About one-third of Americans rely on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and spend over $30 billion annually on health-related expenses. Most pay out of pocket because insurance doesn’t cover treatments. This needs to change if we want to reduce our healthcare costs as a nation. Regulatory agencies and insurance companies dictate treatment guidelines and often exclude preventative and proven alternative medicine from coverage. Americans deserve the freedom to choose the healthcare they prefer and have their treatments covered by insurance providers, the VA, and Medicare and Medicaid. We need to give people the freedom to choose between natural and allopathic healthcare and insurance companies need to cover it, including preventative care such as chiropractic, nutrition, massage, and acupuncture.

Appoint a Health and Wellness Advisory Committee
To execute the above, we need to assemble a team of scientists, experts, and independent researchers who have no ties to the pharmaceutical, food, or chemical industries. Their job will be to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of all artificial ingredients, genetically modified foods, artificial sweeteners, colors, dyes, fluoride, herbicides, pesticides, phthalates, refined sugars, preservatives, and other toxic compounds used in food and beverage production.

I am happy to volunteer my time, efforts, and expertise to begin this conversation and work towards healing America. Let’s make America great again by making America healthy again.

Clean your Body’s Drains: How to Detoxify your Lymphatic System

Did you know that we are exposed to 82,000 different toxins, chemically-based products and processed foods in our environment weekly?

Detoxification is the body’s natural, ongoing process of eliminating harmful toxins from the body so that it can function at its best. Toxins are man-made chemicals found in the air, water, food, household cleaners and cosmetic products as well as waste products produced by normal cellular activity.

When toxins enter the body through the skin, nasal passage or mouth, the body prevents “pollution” by surrounding the toxins with fat and water and stores them in different areas of the body.  This can put a strain on our body’s own detox system (the liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood and lymphatic systems). These systems can become burdened as they try to safely excrete toxins. Continue reading

Dogs are able to detect cancer more accurately than many laboratories

By Amy Goodrich

With up to 300 million scent receptors (compared to our 6 million), dogs can smell things that seem non-existent to our senses. While we all know about their ability to find missing people and sniff out hidden drugs or bombs, they can actually detect so much more. With their extraordinary sense of smell, dogs can pick up on tiny chemical changes in the human body. Continue reading

How sun exposure improves our immune function

By Dr. Mercola

Mounting research confirms that sun avoidance may be at the heart of a large number of health problems. Not only does your body produce vitamin D in response to sun exposure on bare skin, but sunlight also produces a number of other health benefits that are unrelated to vitamin D production.

How long before Obamacare is repealed and replaced?

The repeal and replacement of the chillingly Orwellian-titled Obamacare could happen within weeks if President Elect Trump’s plan comes to fruition, despite wilier types advising him just to stand back and let the [Un]Affordable Care Act implode on itself and splatter egg all over the faces of Obama and the Democrats.

The patient, Obamacare, is already in terminal decline and the prognosis is that death is imminent. So the politician who is only interested in point scoring would just wait for its end – but Donald Trump is not a politician, and he knows how bad that outcome would be for the people.

Research finds that yoga can make changes to our DNA

A study from Harvard University found that practicing yoga can impart a positive change on metabolic function at a cellular level. This in turn can improve things like nutrient absorption, and may assist in the prevention of chronic diseases. The results showed that overall, practicing yoga promoted better cell function across the board. Continue reading

So-called “fake news fact-checkers” are trying to shut down natural health news

by Dr Mercola

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or hiding beneath the covers in your bed for the past couple of months, you’ve undoubtedly heard the war cries against “fake news.”

Facebook — being the largest social media site on which news is shared among millions — has vowed to take steps to limit the amount of “misinformation” that can be spread on its site by forwarding suspected fake news stories to fact-checkers like Snopes.

So-called disputed stories would then be “buried” lower in people’s newsfeeds. However, while verifying celebrity deaths or disputing urban legends — Snopes’ specialty — is a pretty easy task, debating matters about health and nutrition is an altogether different matter.

If Snopes, whose office is reportedly filled with junk food, is now the arbiter of truth when it comes to health — you can expect to see massive censorship of natural health and general promotion of industry talking points. Continue reading

The good, the bad and the ugly of traditional Chinese Medicine

It showed the positive side of combining more recent scientific methods with traditional medicine. Continue reading

Why the weather affects how you feel

By Dr Mercola

Weather can be sunny, stormy, dreary or unpredictable but then so, too, can your mood. The way you feel on any given day may actually be intricately tied to the weather forecast in ways science is only beginning to understand. Continue reading
