When Will We Be Able to Celebrate Health Freedom?
by Paul Fassa
(The Best Years in Life) Dr. Benjamin Rush (1745-1814) was a colonial physician who was the Surgeon General of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. He opened the first free medical clinic at the Pennsylvania Hospital and was considered the “Father of American Medicine”.
He could also be considered a founding father since he signed the Declaration of Independence. But he did not sign the Constitution that was drafted in Philadelphia in 1787 to replace the Articles of Confederation and create a stronger central government to replace 13 independent states' confederacy arrangement.
Dr. Rush did not sign that document. He reportedly didn't even attend, but he knew what the document contained and didn't contain. Perhaps that's why he didn't sign or even attend the signing. There are two versions of what Benjamin Rush had to say about the constitution, but they essentially contain the same warning.
The most repeated version: "The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic. ... Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people who wish doctors and treatment of their own choice to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers."
From the Youngstown Vindicator newspaper in 1911: Laws restricting the practice of the healing art to one class of physicians and denying equal privileges to others, constitutes the Bastille of Medicine, for they prevent progress. They are relics of Monarchy, and therefore have no place in a Republic.”
It wasn't until 1791 that the Bill of Rights was incorporated into the Constitution after urging from several states' representatives concerned that perhaps the Constitution had given the newly created central government too much power.
Though the Bill of Rights could be loosely or vaguely interpreted to support health freedom, there was nothing specific allowing the practice of all types of medicine and the citizens' rights to choose which would be appropriate for their needs.
Fast Forward to Now
And now, just as Dr. Benjamin Rush had predicted, we have health tyranny. Ironically, as we approach the Fourth of July celebration of the Declaration of Independence, California legislators propagandized or simply bought by Big Pharma have made the CDC vaccination schedule compulsory for all children before they can attend public or private schools.
Opposing views and mass citizen demonstrations were totally ignored. It's said as California goes, so does the rest of the nation.
Meanwhile medical kidnappings conducted by Child Protective Services (CPS) for mainstream medicine are on the rise. Even children who have been cured of cancer by so called “alternative” means are court ordered by hospitals to undergo chemotherapy or be taken into state custody by the CPS!
How Medical Tyranny Took Over Here and Elsewhere
John D. Rockefeller was famously quoted as saying “competition is a sin”. Whether he said that or not is irrelevant. It was the way he operated, creating monopolistic enterprises with railroads and in the oil business.
In order to help create a medical monopoly with the pharmaceutical industry, the Rockefeller and Carnegie started by funding medical schools that did not teach herbalism or homeopathy. Instead they funded and created allopathic medical schools that taught surgery and synthetic pharmaceutical drug applications. And they made sure only those graduates were certified to practice medicine.
John D. Rockefeller's efforts are largely responsible for creating our medical monopoly He lived well into his 90s, reportedly using herbalists and homeopathists for him and his family while he nurtured his pharmaceutical industry into the juggernaut that dominates today. The same is said of the Royal Family of England, where homeopathy still has schools and clinics remaining.
The AMA (American Medical Association) at first simply a union for allopathic physicians became a powerful instrument of pharmaceutical and medical fascism bent on eliminating competing practices by the end of the 1920s. The only people allowed to practice medicine were allopathic doctors, and allopathic physicians were not allowed to stray from what was declared by the AMA as orthodox and standard of care.
Individuals or MDs who cured cancer without cut (surgery), burn (radiation), or poison (chemotherapy) were vilified, ruined, and even arrested. But why did some of them manage to reestablish their practices in Mexico and flourish by successfully curing cancer at higher rates less expensively with less debilitating side effects than AMA's “orthodox” oncology?
The commonly held concept is that Mexico is so lax and poorly regulated that any “quack” can practice medicine. But that's simply not true. Though allopathy is also dominant in Mexico, homeopathy flourishes without pressure or intimidation. So does acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
Laetrile, banned here in the USA because it works and isn't profitable enough, is used in many Mexican cancer clinics by Mexican MDs. Ozone (oxygen) therapy for cancer and other diseases is used openly there. But except for Alaska and a very few other states, don't you dare use it here.
By the way, Mexican MDs are not slouches either. Some are educated in the USA, and they generally have a more superior “bedside manner” than our American physicians. It's a cultural thing.
My wife and I lived in Mexico for a couple of years. According to a good Mexican friend who owned a health food store in San Miguel de Allende and an American MD who practiced acupuncture while his wife practiced homeopathy, health freedom is written into the Mexican Constitution.
There I had the choice of going to a doctor for vitamin B12 injections or buying vials of B12 and syringes with needles at pharmacies cheaply without a prescription. I chose the latter.
Now the World Health Organization has announced recently that it hopes to implement, via a U.N. Resolution, “universal health coverage” across the globe. The Rockefeller Foundation is working with WHO (World Health Organization) in this project. “There is a global movement towards UHC (Universal Health Care) and it is gathering momentum,” said Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation.
What's this? The Rockefeller Foundation is involved with the WHO to get a UN resolution to promote universal health care coverage? Well the Rockefellers are globalists who helped create the UN. And health care coverage in most regions, especially the USA, covers only allopathic pharmaceutical led medicine, not any other form or practice of medicine.
That keeps the medical monopoly intact with expensive invasive and toxic “treatments” while forcing others who wish to avoid that branch of medicine paying out of pocket, a hardship for many even while alternative practices are less expensive.
And maintaining a medical monopoly is what the Rockefellers intended with establishing medical insurance, private and public, according to investigative journalist Eustace Mullins, who wrote Murder by Injection. Isn't this what Dr. Benjamin Rush warned against as the United States Constitution was drawn up?
