The ignorant vilification and unethical suppression of natural, plant-based approaches to medical issues of both a mental and physical nature has long been exposed for the world to see.
However, usually the proponents of pharmaceutically-derived mechanistic medicine point to the high success of the industry, but considering that in the US alone around 290 people die from prescription drugs each day and over 250 thousand people are dying from medical errors each year, this is simply not true.
A Discovery article makes it clear why medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States of America:
They also refer to the suspicious lack of reporting of medical errors that the US and other governments of the world fail to publicize:
This obviously brings the entire medical paradigm into question. Of course there have been many amazing successes from the modern approach to medical care, such as surgery and some pharmaceuticals.
These tools have been an invaluable addition to humanity, yet,
When we consider the corruption and collusion that exists within an industry that has been monopolized as part of the corporatocracy, it really is difficult to know.
As I spelled out in a previous article:
To crystallize this point, in the same article I refer to the great journalism provided in a Collective Evolution article:
In the same article, another confronting truth is quoted by Dr. Marcia Angell, a longtime medical journal editor:
Keeping this in mind, when we combine it with the serious concerns that many truth-seekers have regarding the profit-before-morality model that has slithered its way into the various control-systems which influence every aspect of our lives, it becomes clear that the medical-industrial complex and our pursuit for effective health-care needs to be immediately tabled for an open, transparent and unbiased investigation to occur.
Simply, there are many natural, plant-based medicines that have been clinically proven to be a highly effective tool for healing the body and growing the mind.
Many of these substances are illegal, however, which is just another reason why the war-on-drugs has been an epic failure.
As I explained at length in an earlier article titled "The Problem is Drug Law, Not Drugs":
It's not just so-called illegal substances that are high in therapeutic and developmental potential, other basic ingredients such as bicarbonate soda have been shown to help the body to heal itself, even of cancerous tumors.
Various herbs are also on the list of helpful ingredients that combat illness.
In any case, regardless of the many negative impacts that the war-on-drugs has subjected to our individual and collective health, the longer we allow the governments of the world to continue to spread ignorance and fear towards what really are ancient, well-established and clinically-proven approaches to caring for ourselves, the longer we allow the corporatization of our system to run rampant and the longer the potential benefits to our society are missed opportunities.
In addition, the best approach to health is preventative care.
That means along with tools such as meditation, eating nutritious and natural foods will always help to maintain the balance of the mind and body.
The truth is that the corrupted pharmaceutical-industrial complex and their increasingly toxic medicines, as well as a prescriptive instead of a preventative medical model, has hijacked our approach to health-care and treatment.
This is a world that we have consented to; the sooner we stand up as a people and demand that it change, the sooner we will reconnect with the natural therapies and re-nourish our collective spirit.
Richard Dawkins, who hilariously refuses to expand his consciousness beyond the child's play of the classical world, said:
This is something that we can no doubt agree with, so let's hope that as a species we can finally show some intelligence and morality by calling out this toxic approach to health and vitality and open up the global gates to a valid investigation into the benefits of all substances, both natural and designed.
