Same WHO that pushes vaccines with covert infertility chemicals to depopulate Africa says drug legalization is a bad thing
(Natural News) The World Health Organization (WHO) put its hypocrisy on full display recently, when Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus sanctimoniously insisted that first world countries should think twice before following the example of Canada in legalizing the recreational use of cannabis, because addictive substances are “not good for human health.”
This, despite the fact that the WHO has a murky history of involvement with Big Pharma in distributing dangerous vaccines and experimental drugs in Africa, placing the health of citizens there at serious risk.
Perhaps the “human health” of African people is less important to the WHO than that of people in affluent first world countries?
‘Just say no’
The U.K.’s Daily Mail reported recently that Canada’s decision to follow in the footsteps of Uruguay and legalize the recreational use of pot has resulted in fierce debate – a debate which Dr. Tedros was quick to weigh in on during a recent trip to the Philippines.
“Of course we believe that people who need it, especially for pain management, should have it. There should be access,” he said, but was quick to add that such access requires careful regulation and that full legalization comes with serious risks.
“I think any addictive substance is not good for human health,” he added. “We wouldn’t encourage countries to follow those who are actually… legalizing it.”…
More people are turning to herbal treatments as dissatisfaction with conventional medicine increases
(Natural News) Why do you use herbal medicine? A study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine sought to answer this very question and came up with some insightful answers.
The field of medicine has made leaps and bounds over the centuries, but more and more people around the world are rediscovering the benefits of complementary and alternative medicine – and liking the results. To determine why this was so, researchers from Germany created a qualitative study with participants from three age groups.
They organized six focus groups made up of young (18 to 35 years old), middle-aged (36 to 59 years old), and elderly (60 years and above) participants. There were 46 individuals in total. The focus groups discussed a variety of topics revolving around complementary and alternative medicine, especially regarding the participants’ personal experience with herbal medicine (HM), why they use herbal medicine, and where they get their information about herbal medicine. All of the responses and discussions were recorded and examined using qualitative content analysis.
The researchers took note of several key points. First, the participants use HM as a treatment for both acute and chronic diseases but not so much as a means to prevent disease. Using herbal medicine as a means to stay healthy was even less popular. As one participant put it:
“I try to eat healthily, but I do not take herbal medicine as a preventative care, for not becoming ill later.”
When asked what they use herbal medicine for, most of the participants mentioned diseases like muscle pain, cold, and the flu. They also turn to herbs to relax and to be able to sleep easier. HM is the first choice – the starting treatment before they opt for conventional medicine. As a testament to their trust for herbal medication, some of the participants even mentioned giving herbal medicine to their kids.
Interestingly, the respondents agreed that herbs are not a cure-all. When it comes to serious diseases, during and after surgery, severe pain, and ensuring fast recovery, they consider herbal medicine to not be “so efficient.”
If this is the case, why do they keep on using herbs then? The participants cited the presence of too many side effects with conventional medicine, the lack of any actual effect from conventional treatment, and dissatisfaction with the doctor.
One participant narrated how they were prescribed cortisone by their dermatologist, only to discover that the drug made their skin thinner and their symptoms worse. After getting a book on folk herbal treatments, the participant decided to use an ointment made with the sarsaparilla plant and never looked back. The respondent declared that they hadn’t needed a dermatologist since.
Several participants cited a positive experience with herbal medicine. Some actually recalled instances when sticking to an herbal treatment regimen protected them from common and seasonal conditions like colds and the flu….
