Call NC reps NOW – voting to turn holistic health providers into FELONS

Urgent:  This matter will be open for debate again in 20 minutes!  Scroll down to find out how to contact NC reps NOW — even if you don’t live in NC.

Update:  NC House has closed business today & will reconvene tomorrow 4/7/11 at 1:15pm.  Emphasis on – it is not too late to act now.

The 1st business of the day on my priority plate was to track the progress of this freedom stifling piece of legislation:  SB 31 titled to “Clarify Penalties for Unauthorized Practice of Medicine.”   Let’s quickly get down to business so that you too, can spread the word — FAST.

We all know how bills, acts, campaign slogans, and government agencies often title themselves in a confusing manner – almost as if it were meant to intentionally mislead.  So, let’s start there.  

1)  NC refuses to license alternative health care practitioners.  Since bill SB 31 also applies to out-of-state licensed holistic healers, then that also means they cannot perform their specialty within the state of NC without suffering the same penalties. 

2)  What’s the penalty?  FELON.   Yes, they actually seek to increase the penalty from a misdemeanor (which is still a violation of civil rights and natural law) to FELONY status.  That means:  no more voting rights, forget applying for a job (if you can find one outside of allopathic drug based healthcare, military, banking to begin with in this state), total disqualification for ANY government employment from park maintenance to secretarial, postal, or education…I think you understand the gravity of this criminal status.

3)  Even though Asheville, NC is 1 of the most popular and renowned cities in our entire continent, as well as the most progressive towards green, eco-friendly, organic lifestyle and health modalities – therefore provides plenty of proof of efficiency and safety in their own geographical corner of the state – SB 31 still has not been shutdown entirely.

4)  Holistic medicine encompasses a wide range of specialties from nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, to energy work like chakra therapy or reflexology, and includes Chinese Medicine practitioners.  Every single faction of alternative health is nothing new, experimental, or drug dependent.  On the contrary…it in fact is based on natural law (quite simply:  how natural substances relate to each other), and comes from a vast world of knowledge that has been known since the beginning of time, tried and tested throughout the ages by Asian and Native American cultures, yet may just be coming to light in your neck of the woods thanks to the Internet allowing us to share and store infinite amounts of this knowledge.

What has been happening in the medicine field in our country is akin to the strangling cultural breakdown of Native Americans once they were 1st forced from their homes and then later beaten for even speaking their native language or practicing their own traditions as children were seized from their families and forced into government boarding schools.  Within 1 generation, eons of knowledge collected over the course of their history nearly disappeared entirely.  Even basic things like what was good to eat or how to connect spiritually to our Great Creator and each other as well nearly vanished from their mindset. 

NC is leading the country on none other than a witch hunt.  At a time when other states are recognizing the now scientifically proven benefits of natural medicine, they are regressing back into the Stone Age pockets of corporate greed.  They are afterall, 1 of the leading states in modern medicinal research containing 3 prominent med schools.

Which brings me to this little known fact about med schools.  Only 8 out of 128 med schools in the entire nation even offer nutrition.  Granted, there is more to alternative medicine than just nutrition, but the proper knowledge of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fats, proteins, and carbohydrates is the very basis of life, health, and thus by extension – medicine.

Here is a personal example from my own life of how atrocious SB 31 is and the detrimental effects of passing it could have:

My husband broke both the ulna and radius of his left arm.  He went to an orthopedist who had practiced in NC for years.  Every 4-6 weeks for 8 months, he visited this orthopedist (bone specialist), receiving x-rays each time that sadly confirmed there was NO sign of healing or bone fusing whatsoever.  I began worrying that he was indeed diabetic. 

During this 8 months of orthopedic visits, he had to turn down 2 different high paying job offers as an electrician because they saw him as an immediate liability.  (He had been laid off >1yr when the break occurred.)

Having seen my chiropractor (the man was phenomenal) and learning that he bases his treatments on getting to the core of problems through nutrition v.s. relying on prescribing pain pills or muscle relaxers, I gained immense respect for him.  When I realized he was also an acupuncturist, I began thinking maybe he could help my husband. 

The acupuncture consultation was free.  Let me repeat:  FREE.  He viewed x-rays taken 2 weeks prior and immediately asked J, “Do you drink sodas?”  Again, my mind starts thinking, “Oh no, diabetes!”  My husband replied, “Maybe 1 or 2  20 ounce bottles a day is all.”  Our alternative healthcare provider’s instant response:  STOP NOW.  

I told him, “Sure, no problem, but you have my curiosity picked, so could you please explain why?”   The answer:  Phosphates keep your body from using calcium, so even if you take supplements, the calcium remains free floating in your bloodstream and isn’t able to be used to rebuild bone.  Sodas are full of phosphates due to phosphoric acid as an ingredient. 

Guess what?  My husband quit cold turkey and FOUR WEEKS later was 98% healed.  We were never charged a dime for that visit, yet we owe the incompetent orthopedist for 2 surgeries, 8 months worth of visits, and an additional $2500 for an useless machine that he promised would cost only $800-$1000 and would be returnable.  The machine – even though for external use only – is non-returnable. 

Back to business though:  Time to GET ON THE HORN and let NC state representatives know that what they are doing steps on your freedom, blackmails your life by holding your wallet and mortgage for ransom, and creates criminals out of truly good Samaritans who in fact do know what they are talking about and who also seek to empower the “patient” – not create a dependency on any system, much less any chemical artificial substance proven to ruin health and destroy lives.

Think I’m going overboard by saying the modern Western medicine practices hold your life or mortgage at ransom?  How about considering we are THE ONLY developed nation in the world where foreclosures are soaring in large part due to unpaid medical costs. 

You do not have to live in NC to get your voice heard or to state the case supporting alternative healthcare.  Please call now.  Then, email.

    This measure has been voted on and passed, BUT not before being amended to specify someone impersonating a physician and that it did not contradict prior laws allowing alternative care options and procedure.

    You can read the bill and added amendments by clicking the link above titled Progress of Senate Bill SB 31.

    I appreciated the return phone call I got from 1 of the 3 representatives’ offices that I personally contacted. The assistant very patiently explained how the vote went and offered where you could hear live audio coverage of the bill in progress. That link is available above as well titled “Livestream of NC General Assembly”. It will only be operable when they are in session, but there is a calendar for both NC House and NC Senate on the site. An excellent resource for school-aged children, and can particularly be taken advantage of by homeschooled kids.
