15 Days After the Fast – FDA may regulate Vitamins & Supplements?
Mary here… I wanted to pass on important information about a Washington-based organization called the Alliance for Natural Health, which has alerted us about the upcoming possibility of the FDA regulating our vitamins and supplements. Companies that manufacture our vitamins and supplements may be forced out of business and consumers may not be able to obtain them. This is serious. Look for the link to the Alliance for Natural Health under “Our Favorites” where you can get information about what you can do.
The Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA) is part of an international organization dedicated to promoting sustainable health and freedom of choice in healthcare through good science and good law. They protect the right of natural-health practitioners to practice and the right of consumers to choose the healthcare options they prefer. Since 1992, ANH has worked to shift the medical paradigm from an exclusive focus on surgery, drugs, and other conventional techniques to an “integrative” approach incorporating functional foods, dietary supplements, and lifestyle changes. ANH believes this is the way to improve health and extend lives while reducing the costs of healthcare back to a sustainable level.
ANH-USA is committed to sustainable health, the recognition that our environment and our physical health are inextricably related. If we run out of clean water to drink, pure air to breathe or nutritious and uncontaminated food to eat, or if through our prescription drugs and vaccines we are poisoned by mercury or phthalates, our physical health will suffer.
Sustainable health also applies the environmental ethic of conservation to our bodies. It urges us to live as nature intended us to live. Diet, dietary supplements, exercise, and the avoidance of toxins are especially important tools in building and maintaining health.
Today, preventive medicine is too often defined as taking more and more drugs at an earlier and earlier age, even in childhood. The concept of sustainable health is real preventive medicine and will dramatically reduce healthcare costs.
ANH-USA ensures your right to choose a sustainable and preventive approach to health along with nutritional and “integrative” healthcare. They lobby Congress and state legislatures, act as a government watchdog, file comments on proposed rulings, and educate the public, press and other decision-makers.
