TGA is seeking to stop Naturopathy in Australia

TGA continues assault on Naturopathy in Maleny and Australia


It is clear that the assault on natural therapies continues unabated and many in the AMA and others in the medical profession want to see naturopaths and other natural therapy practitioners severely limited in their ability to help people and some even want to drive most natural therapies out of business. This will leave a massive gap in Australia's medical system leaving those who seek help in a variety of therapies without any help.

The local ABC ran an interview yesterday (July 11, 2013[1]: To follow on the ABC story and a comment on deaths caused by prescription drugs, here are figures on the USA rates of illness and death caused by medical errors, wrong medicines, and wrong diagnoses - this is almost 20 years ago. The Figures are worse now.

In 1995, a report in JAMA (US Journal of Medicine) said that: “Over a million patients are injured in U.S. hospitals each year, and approximately 280,000 die annually as a result of these injuries. Therefore, the Iatrogenic death rate dwarfs the annual automobile accident mortality rate of 45,000 and accounts for more deaths than all other accidents combined.” See also our Middle Path Natural Health's articles Blind Faith in the Health Care System your biggest health threat? and an extended version of this item.

Natural medicine's record is a tiny spot on the windscreen compared to this. You could count the deaths and errors in ten years on two hands worth of fingers in Aust and NZ. Which style of medicine DO YOU THINK needs more control on its standards?

Help us save our Show Day Holiday

Council are currently considering the issue of show holidays, and would like to know what you think. We think our show and the Sunshine Coast Show (Nambour) could both keep their current show day holidays. If you have the time, please do the council survey by the 7th of July.

The possible options that Council are considering:

  • choose meOption One - Keep the current holidays as they are. This means a holiday in the southern region of the Coast for the Maleny Agricultural Show in May, and a different date in the central region of the Coast for the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show in Nambour held in June.
  • dont choose meOption Two - Keep only the Sunshine Coast Show Day in June for the whole region. This means both the southern and central regions will have the June show holiday and there will be no show holiday for the Maleny Show.
  • dont choose meOption Three - Keep only the Maleny Show Day in May for the whole region. This means both the southern and central regions will have the May show holiday and there will be no show holiday for the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show.
  • dont choose medont choose meOption Four - Have a show holiday on a completely different day. In this case council will have to select a date other than one of the two current show dates. An example of such a day could be during the Ekka Show and there will be no show holiday for the Maleny Show.
  • dont choose medont choose meOption Five - Have no show day public holiday at all - this holiday is only gazetted by the state government if it is requested by the council. It is therefore possible for the Sunshine Coast to forgo the holiday altogether and there will be no show holiday for the Maleny Show.

Submissions close at 5.00 pm on 8 July 2013.


If the survey proves to be too difficult - you can contact our council and let them know and make your preference known: email Jenny McKay.

Fluoridation - are you concerned about its effects?

Local Councils can now make up their own minds about the fluoridation of their water supply.

Encourage the Sunshine Coast Council to Remove fluoride from our drinking water supply

To express your opinion let the council know : write the council a letter -

Background:

Professor Paul Connett is one of the world major opponents of mass medication via fluoridated water. He is a graduate of Cambridge University and holds a PhD in Chemistry from Dartmouth College.

Before he began researching the issue of and literature on fluoride toxicology and the argument pertaining to the water fluoridation debate over 12 years ago, his impression was that people who opposed to water fluoridation were a little “crazy”.

However, after more than 12 years of researching and reading on fluoride toxicology and water fluoridation, he believes that the practice of fluoridation is one of the most preposterous public health policies ever propagated and the sooner it is ended worldwide the better.

Groundbreaking new research has linked sodium fluoride to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers found that fluoride consumption directly stimulates the hardening of your arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis that is highly correlated with the #1 killer.

It also calcifies your pineal gland, which can lead to a number of health problems, from precocious puberty to cancer—both of which are also burgeoning epidemics...

Here is some text to start with if you want :

To:   Sunshine Coast Council,
Sunshine Coast Regional Council Councillors,
to all councilors of the Sunshine Coast Regional Council

Remove fluoride from water supply

There is huge scientific data backing up the fact that the fluoride mass medication is dangerous.

According to one of the world's leading authorities, Prof. Paul Connett, he believes that
the practice of fluoridation is one of the most preposterous public health policies
ever propagated and the sooner it is ended worldwide the better.

Groundbreaking new research has linked sodium fluoride to cardiovascular disease,
the leading cause of death worldwide.

 It has also been linked to cancers and other life-threatening diseases.
 
I hope the Sunshine Coast Council will educate themselves about these dangers and
like Cairns Council, will vote to remove this abomination from our municipal water supply.

Fluoride is an industrial waste product from the phosphate manufacturers and
does not belong in our drinking water.

I therefore ask you to stop fluoridating our water supply.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
