On March 30th we published an article about the sudden push by the FDA to label homeopathic remedies as dangerous.

FDA Pushing To Regulate Homeopathy Out of Existence?

In response to this, an organization called Downsize DC is taking action to do two things…

•Stop the FDA from prohibiting homeopathy
•Urge Congress to make the FDA advisory rather than mandatory
We’re copying you on the message Downsize DC is sending to its supporters. We urge you to read it and then use the link below to go to Downsize DC’s quick-and-easy Educate the Powerful System to issue the same instructions to your Congressional reps.

Here’s the Downsize DC message…

———-

Please be aware…

The FDA is threatening to crack down on homeopathy. Please take action to stop this oppression. https://downsizedc.org/etp/fda/

•Ask Congress to make the FDA advisory rather than mandatory.
•Use your personal comments to tell Congress to block the FDA from any action against homeopathy.
You can copy or edit the following letter for this purpose…

I believe personal conscience should rule in all things. This includes minority health care choices such as homeopathy. Sadly, within just the last few days, the FDA has rushed to…

* Publish a “safety alert” against homeopathy 19 http://1.usa.gov/1FgGuRf

* Called for hearings on April 20th. http://1.usa.gov/1FgGzV2

I want all my Congressional representatives to write the FDA a letter telling them to cancel the alert and the hearings.

I also want you to sponsor legislation that will make the FDA advisory rather than mandatory. Toward this end, please inform yourself that a 2009 survey of adverse events showed…

* 41 major adverse events with only one death for the entire spectrum of supplements including botanicals, amino acids, and vitamins

* More than 7,000 major adverse events for FDA approved drugs, including 496 deaths

This makes it very clear — we do NOT need the FDA to protect us from things like supplements and homeopathy. What we really need is protection from the FDA and their Big Pharma cronies.

Please show that you represent me, and not the FDA-Big Pharma cartel.

* Send that letter I asked you for telling the FDA to back-off homeopathy

* Sponsor legislation making the FDA advisory rather than mandatory

I will be watching what you do.

MEDICAL RIGHTS DENIED

_________________________________________________________________

The infringement of medical rights and normal access to necessary types of pain medicine has been an ongoing issue for many years. How is it that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), an unelected agency, has the legal authority to deny effective prescription pain killers by a doctor for a patient? Are these agencies more knowledgeable than the MD’s or is it politics as usual?

Countless patients who plead their case with their doctors are now suffering needlessly from excruciating pain because these agencies which are an arm of the federal government are presently restricting the use of certain prescription drugs that may be addictive. Drugs such as Vicodin(Hydrocodone), a pain reliever, was taken off of the market because it was found not only to be addictive but it also caused liver cancer. Yet, there are many other drugs, depending upon the frequency of their usage, that present other problems. Also, while medical marijuana is seen as a pain reliever, it has also been shown in studies to be addictive and also causes cancer. So what else is new. People who are denied pain relievers for certain ailments are also given regular doses of morphine which will, in the end be fatal.

Here is the case of the late, Ms. Siobhan Reynolds, founder of the Pain Relief Network. The Network was an advocate for adequate pain medication for patients and against the regulations and the negligent
behavior of those agencies such as the FDA and DEA. Doctors who are willing to provide for their patients are now under more scrutiny from these federal agencies when it comes to prescribing pain medicine. Ms. Reynolds whose recommendations would undercut the ability of federal agencies that violate the medical rights of American citizens were not heard.

Countering her recommendations at the time, the Assistant U.S. Attorney Tanya Treadway attempted to silence Reynolds with a gag order in the case of Dr. Stephen Schneider, who was indicted for “illegal drug trafficking” in December 2007. The gag order was very properly denied, but the U.S. Attorney’s Office responded with an inquisitorial and malicious Grand Jury proceeding against Reynolds, which bankrupted her organization. Although Grand Jury proceedings are secret in order to protect defendants, Reynolds’ desire to make all records public has been improperly denied, apparently in order to protect, not her innocence, but the guilt of the prosecutors.

Later, the Obama administration moved to restrict prescriptions of the most commonly used narcotic painkillers in the U.S. in an attempt to curb widespread abuse. Also, the DEA said it would reclassify
hydrocodone combination drugs such as Vicodin and put them in the category reserved for medical substances with the highest potential for harm.

In summary, if you or persons that you know are suffering from needless pain because your doctors are reluctant to administer certain pain medications, you now know the reason.
