New Health Complaints Law Heralds An Effective Abolition Of The Right To Practice 17 Popular Natural Health Therapies

“People in Glass Houses Should Not Throw Stones”

When the Levee Breaks – Led Zeppelin

Despite my unheeded warnings about the recent Health Complaints legislation, we have witnessed the passing of a remarkably discriminatory Victorian Health Complaints Act, which now sadly heralds an effective Australia wide abolition of the legal right to practice 17 natural therapy professions.

The new mandatory code of conduct includes a requirement to substantiate “any claims made either directly to clients or in advertising or promotional materials about the efficacy of treatment or services he or she provides”, unlike the far lower standards required of the mainstream medical community.

This strict new test, also applicable in most other Australian states, ensures any natural health profession, or individual practitioner, who is singled out, will have no hope of defending any state-based prohibition proceedings.

There is no hope because our Australian government’s medical science research arm, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), has already comprehensively ruled last year that there is NO evidence supporting the efficacy of 17 natural therapies.

 

What are these 17 ‘natural therapies’?

Consider this list of popular remedies, of which 15 of these therapies I have personally and effectively used with wonderful benefits, i.e. ‘drug free’ and the ‘first’ Victorian across the line in the recent ‘Masters Track Cycling Victorian State Champs’ for 60-64 years in the 2km individual pursuit. I say thank you to all those natural and integrative practitioners that have kept me going through some pretty dark spaces to be near physically and mentally at my peak – I dedicate this song to help all of you now – heroes to me.

When one of these 17 professions, or a practitioner of these therapies, is singled out for pursuit, ‘witch hunt’ prohibition hearings will be held before a state-based Complaints Commissioner, appointed by mainstream medical lobby groups, licking their cherry-picking chops that our naive politicians just abolished many effective and natural therapies, without most politicians even realising the impact of their actions.

The knock-out blow for all things natural is contained in the 2015 NHMRC Review of the Australian Government Rebate on Natural Therapies for Private Health Insurance “to ensure private health insurance covers clinically proven treatments”.

aaeaaqaaaaaaaahfaaaajdm1yzmwmdg2lwzjodmtngqxmy1iyjbmltjmyzk0ywq1y2y2zq

I say that this was a corruptly motivated review and that it is an absolute ‘demolition derby’ of all of the above 17 natural professions by a biased NHMRC, which concluded at page 3:

“The purpose of the Review was to ensure that natural therapies are underpinned by a credible evidence base that demonstrates their clinical efficacy, cost-effectiveness and safety and quality. The Rebate will be paid for insurance products that cover natural therapy services as described in the previous Government’s media release:

The Private Health Insurance Rebate will be paid for insurance products that cover natural therapy services only where the Chief Medical Officer finds there is clear evidence they are clinically effective.

“Such clear evidence has not been found.”

Then on page 4 it states:

Overall, there was not reliable, high-quality evidence available to allow assessment of the clinical effectiveness of any of the natural therapies for any health conditions.”

To understand how biased and corrupt these conclusions are, you will need to consider how the NHMRC dealt with the other contentiousness health debate of the day concerning compulsory vaccination, the ‘no jab, no pay’ game. This is the Australian Immunisation Handbook, which in my contention is staggeringly incompetent in its pseudo-science approach to the efficacy of vaccines and is clear evidence of a raging criminal conspiracy and corruption. A separate post coming soon.

   “I say it is time for political action to be taken to dismantle the NHMRC’s charade of being Australia’s peak custodian of health science knowledge and ethics and to also address the flagrant conflicts of interest endemic to our health policy determinations by all Australian health regulatory arms.”

Stand by Me

If you think I am over stating the scenario, consider these facts. I assisted an unfairly attacked health practitioner, through the 66 day longest Victorian health case in 2013, before a blatantly biased VCAT hearing headed by Senior Member Robert Davis.

The VCAT Tribunal overlooked the entire evidence of all six medical doctors, who were experts in the same field as the registered health practitioner, when addressing the seven allegations relating to his professional conduct. This evidence related to treatment of a single patient who had only complained in the first instance because he did not want to pay the bill owing to the practitioner.

This biased, and I say probably corrupt, Tribunal deregistered the practitioner by cherry-picking evidence from various non-expert witnesses, including the actual practitioner who was the first attack subject leading to the formation of a body called the ‘Friends of Science in Medicine’, the ultimate source of biased, cherry-picking science.

Please note this amazing fact from this case, which is the reason why natural health practitioners who are singled out have no hope of defending a claim under the new Victorian Health Complaints Act ( or various other State acts): the deregistered practitioner had 906 peer reviewed journal articles on his website to substantiate his treatments.

“Not good enough science” AHPRA said. At least AHPRA, (the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency), was embarrassed enough by VCAT’s bias, to later withdraw this case from its website list of relevant cases that are listed to guide other registered practitioners.

Fortunately, the practitioner successfully defended a prohibition order sought by AHPRA so the brilliant health practitioner still practises, plus significantly, he was found to be of good character, a priceless asset worth fighting to the extremely bitter and disillusioning end.

I say that the NHMRC is a complacent unaccountable gravy train of corruption. We say the same about the Friends of Science in Medicine. Both of these bodies attack any one who dares to question what they say. Both of these bodies are implacably opposed to natural health remedies. I say NHMRC and the Friends of “cherry-picking” Science are the wrecking balls of human health.

Wrecking Balls by Miley Cyrus

The PUNCHLINE of this sad state of affairs therefore is this:

a practitioner brought before state-based complaints bodies will be UNABLE TO SUBSTANTIATE THEIR CLAIMS TO EFFICACY because the  NHMRC’S 2015 EVIDENCE WILL BE PREFERRED  

On top of this, in Victoria, no peer review applies, unlike the mainstream medical community regime of governance which has a minimum of eight peer group practitioners involved before prohibition can take place under AHPRA legislation. Thus, the Health Complaints Commissioner’s sole opinion will apply.

That is further reason why there is no hope of winning and why I say that the new law sadly heralds an effective abolition of the legal right to practice 17 natural therapy professions.

 Looking forward to speaking to any natural practitioners, and/or their professional associations in any Australian State, as to how we can gang tackle this military assault on their right to practice, and the right of their patients to choose which medical model to harness their health – Natural or Chemical.

Why Friends of Science banned its own Rubella science

 Key Question : Why did someone within the Friends of Science in Medicine hierarchy ask their spiritual leader, Professor John”cherry-picker” Dwyer, to remove his detailed response to my Linkedin post called Hot Seat for Professor Rowe, friend of science , which I posted on 23 March 2016.

Did Professor “Cherry Picker” fire off his bullets too prematurely 24 hours later on his own home page at the “Friends” site at Friends of “cherry-picking”science in medicine website and disclaimer.

I say Professor John Dwyer made the same mistake as the authors of the Australian Immunisation Handbook , by cherry-picking the use of acritical systematic review by the absolute peak globally recognisedCochrane Collaboration on a certain prominent vaccine.

And as said  by that TV star Gomer Pyle (a simple man for those old enough to remember like me with a Seniors Card),  “SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE” – that Cochrane review was performed  upon the darling jewel of the vaccination crown, the coveted and “uncontroversial” MMR vaccine. see Cochrane review on MMR vaccine .If Minister Jill “all vaccines are safe” Hennessy decides to read this Cochrane, she should check out the authors conclusions relating to the standards of safety studies done to date. Hmm – No Jab No Pay = CAN of Worms to Come.

I find it challenging to believe obvious “mistakes” like this omission of the only systematic review of MMR evidence can be made by our most revered doctors, academics and scientists, when we are talking about our precious newborn. We don’t need to mention politicians here, do we, as they dine away with ??? to fund our TV ads in the next 8 weeks.

Then again, I say cherry – picking is an art form when it comes to so-called evidence based science, screamed by our Friends of Big Pharma in Medical Malpractice.

How many other “mistakes” have been made with the vaccination science, or any other Big Pharma drug. I am a newbie to the science of vaccinations by the way, having only started drilling down three months ago into this seemingly pseudo-science grab bag. And yes, I find a vaccine is the holy descriptive name for a poorly tested drug which cannot be publicly discussed without extreme intimidation. Come on down Dr Ken Harvey soon no doubt.

Hmmm- so why does Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) exempt the category of drugs called vaccines from its mandatory safety and efficacy guidelines, which apply to all other areas of medical intervention?

There are two answers! My answer, mandatory only means mandatory when you want it to be mandatory, otherwise it would be very embarrassing for most mainstream medicine participants.

The official answer in the Australian Immunisation Handbook to be found electronically at  Development of the 10th edition of the Handbook  namely:

“The 1st edition of the Australian Immunisation Handbook was published in 1975. Due to its longevity, scope and complexity, the Handbook does differ from other NHMRC guidelines. As such, recommendations contained in the Handbook do not contain formal levels or grades of evidence for evidence tables.”

Bad luck the NHMRC applied last year the strict blowtorch of its mandatory guidelines to 17 natural therapy professions, some of which have been progressing quite nicely for thousands of years before the Handbook’s genesis in 1975.  See NHMRC stitch up on natural therapies.

Fee fi fo fum, do I smell the blood of a conspiratorial mob here. See  Fee-fi-fo-fum for younger readers.

Again, let me say I am not pro or anti or an anti over-vaccinator, I am a MASSIVE supporter of EXCEPTIONAL INFORMED CONSENT and a level playing field for evidence based science.

Why? Because we are now exponentially jabbing our newborn, and now even their pregnant mothers, compared to when I became a parent 29 years ago. And I am struggling with my search for good science, and obviously so are the Friends of Science In Medicine. Maybe Professor John needs to phone a Friend.

And guess what- the vaccine development pipeline is off the map if you read the latest 6th edition of the main textbook called “Vaccines”. Plus adults are an absolute massive prime strategic target for the next vaccination assault on our freedoms, if you study the Australian government’s strategy plans. More soon.

So back to Professor Dwyer’s blog in response to mine WHICH HAS DISAPPEARED OFF THE FRIENDS OF SCIENCE IN MEDICINE’S WEBSITE at Friends (Really of Big Pharma and Jill Hennessy”) – here it is though — lucky I kept a copy Professor.

First the Prof C-P posted a comment on my Post as follows:

“John Dwyer
Professor at University of NSW
Those interested in reviewing the abundant evidence for the safety and effectiveness of Rubella vaccination could consult the FSM website where we have placed such data” President of FSMof medical trial “science”.

Then Professor John wrote this little charming piece about me, the unnamed blogger, on the actual homepage of his cherry-picking site right at the top (my italics included):

“A recent  blog has questioned the safety and efficacy of Rubella vaccination. The blogger has targeted individual FSM Friends, demanding that they respond to questions on the issue or face serious consequences,threatening that a complaint to the individual’s  employer would follow if they did not do so.

This repugnant tactic is the more ridiculous in that targeted FSM supporters may have no expertise in vaccination epidemiology and immunology. Such behaviour is reprehensible. We are not about to enter a slanging match on the blogger’s terms, but vaccination is too important an issue to be continually misrepresented, so we are placing  on our website some data and references to a series of scientific studiesdemonstrating the safety and effectiveness of Rubella vaccination.

Congenital Rubella is greatly diminished with routine vaccination of girls. Rubella infection in early pregnancy causes deafness (60-70%), heart defects (10-25%), ophthalmic disorders e.g. retinopathy, cataracts (10-25%), brain defects e.g. mental retardation, microcephaly (10-25%), thrombocytopenia and later in life diabetes and thyroid disease. 

See:- 
www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Rubella/Pages/Complications.aspx

 Those interested in scientific studies on the Rubella vaccine may be interested in the following;

So let’s examine my key question  at the outset, namely :

Key Question : Why did someone within the Friends of Science in Medicine hierarchy ask their spiritual leader, Professor John”cherry-picker” Dwyer, to remove his detailed response to my Linkedin post called Hot Seat for Professor Rowe, friend of science I posted on 23 March 2016.

After all, the Prof C-P did say in his blog :

” We are not about to enter a slanging match on the blogger’s terms, but vaccination is too important an issue to be continually misrepresented, so we are placing on our website some data and references to a series of scientific studies demonstrating the safety and effectiveness of Rubella vaccination.”

Maybe someone reminded Professor Dwyer that this “REPUGNANT AND REPREHENSIBLE BLOGGER” was only referring to the Cochrane Collaboration Reviews, the scientific “holy grail” essence of the Friends of Science, and AHPRA’s, attack on natural medicine professions.

And I might add, there is a direct funding of Cochrane Collaboration by the NHMRC, the approving body of the guidelines underpinning the Australian Immunisation Handbook, so it is hard to believe it was an innocent mistake to cherry pick Cochrane when it comes to the MMR vaccine. So who knows what else I will find with my merry band of assisting researchers.

So an innocent mistake Professor, or are you the ring leader in a criminal conspiracy, or is it just a civil conspiracy. Doesn’t feel like a civil fight to me my FRIENDS OF SCIENCE. It feels like I have stumbled on your criminal conspiracy to destroy the whole of the natural medicine professions. Lucky the WILK’s case in the USA already succeeded on similar fact situations.

Finally as I said five years ago to the AHPRA head kicker leading a VCAT attack on a brilliant hyperbaric oxygen therapist I assisted through 66 hearing days:

“People in Glass Houses Should not Throw Stones”

I find the head of Friends of Science in Medicine’s behaviour repugnant and reprehensible; clearly a blatant “slanging match”; a typical diatribe of the Friends of Science’s who make an art form of bullying and hypocritical behaviour against all supporters of natural medicine and wellness therapies.

Indeed is Professor John Dwyer guilty of making false and misleading statements and bringing his profession, and the Friends of Science in Medicine, into disrepute?

Should the usually conspiring AHPRA “guillotiners” turn on one of their own, and hold a mainstream medical practitioner to account. Or is the Professor above the law, just like the former Victorian Health Commissioner, Ms Beth Wilson, when she clearly breached the VCAT Act invoking a maximum sentence of three months jail? Blind eyes being turned everywhere down in the Victorian A-G’s department I am afraid, in case chill winds hinder the carnage to come now Minister Jill “all vaccines are safe” Hennessy rammed her latest Exocet missile through the Victorian Parliament last month, the  Health Complaints Act.

Maybe I should ask a Friend for help to shed light on why the Friends brought down their website Rubella information? Maybe Professor Rowe might be the one again perhaps. He never did reply by the way. Lucky I know his Chairman  from 30 years ago back in my old venture capital days.

Blogging can get get you into hot water, but so can joining blogging societies like Friends of Science.

Until we meet again. Hope to have my own website up soon to take the cause to another level. FightPHARMAcorruption.com.…..keep watching.

Health Australia Party creates Aussie first

***So finally a good news story about the quiet birth of the first Australian Federal political party ever to include health in its name, the Health Australia Party.

I so tire of reading endless corruption stories daily by our major corporations treating us like scum, particularly Big Pharma, which sees us as mindless CONSUMERS, rather than patients who just want to become healthy contributing citizens.

I must declare upfront a conflict of interest – I was so impressed with the five policy pillars of the Health Australia Party, I paid the $20 to become an inaugural member earlier this year. I have also set out to test the bona fides and morals of the  brave new political combatants, seeking to win Senate positions in most key States (note there are still candidate spots available and potential for House of Representative candidates to nominate as well).

The five pillars of the Health Australia Party are Healthy People; Healthy Economy; Healthy Environment; Healthy Democracy and Healthy Society. 

Check out their new website at https://www.healthaustraliaparty.com.au/

The Health Australia Party has also put up 58 policy initiatives  on its website so check them out too at Health Australia Party’s policies

In previous Federal elections, I have generally voted for the Liberal Party as a supporter of free enterprise, but on occasion have backed the Labour Party’s preferred vision at the time, and many times also supported the Australian Democrats or the Greens in the Senate.

In my business career, I have been supported at the highest levels by senior figures in both the Liberal Party and the Labour Party, plus had a joint venture fund management business with the cream of the Labour Party’s industry superannuation fund architects.

So why at the launch today of this extraordinary eight week Federal election campaign do I raise a new political party such as the Health Australia Party for consideration? 

Well, because I am beyond disillusionment with the extent the free enterprise/capitalist system has been overridden by the global corporate elite’s masterminded global strategy of suppression and harm of the world’s population.

The elite Rothschild, Rockefeller et al clans have systematically carved an extraordinary atmosphere of fear in the minds of most world leaders and their political teams, to the extent our politicians are like putty, so brainwashed or devoid of courage or plain corrupted, incapable of withstanding the elite’s satanic abuse of our lives, our dreams and our health.

Interestingly my main business career came to an end at the pen of Rothschild back in the late 1990’s ( led by young turk Mr Mike Symons – read on).  Rothschild’s merchant banking arm then took over the fund management business which my business partner and I ran in joint venture with the trade union controlled industry superannuation funds. The Rothschild guillotine came down in record time to highly publicly destroy that JV, namely one year into a fixed five year deal.

For those of you who then came to know me in my subsequent ten year involvement with the horse racing and breeding industry, the currentMelbourne Racing Club Chairman is the same Mr Mike Symons of Rothschild’s fame.

 Mike Symons has just failed in his corrupt attempt to run an election campaign with only his mates in the know, in order to entrench himself and two other board members at the helm of the Melbourne Racing Club for a 12 year reign. A re-election has now been sought after a widespread OUTCRY – let’s hope the members give Mike and his cronies what he justly deserves. See Melbourne Racing Club declares controversial vote null and void

So can the Health Australia Party (HAP) deliver HAPpy days for those of us concerned for our own health and the health of our families and their future generations of drugged defenceless babies? I certainly hope so.

Big Pharma has created a cradle to grave onslaught of extraordinary drug cocktails exploding exponentially each decade, without any scientific trials as to their impact in such extreme combinations, and a neat cop-out for doctors unable to determine which adverse event related to which drug  administered.

Clearly it is early days for HAP but those in the team I have met are at the forefront of their professions and show extreme courage at standing up to the elite and saying “enough is enough”. The HAP office bearers will no doubt be immediately targeted by our biased regulators, driven by what I say is an elaborate criminal conspiracy to distort our health system to ensure prevention is a dirty word and Big Pharma is omnipotent.

My recent unheeded warnings about the state based health complaints legislation, culminating with the passing of the most discriminatory Victorian Health Complaints Bill, now sadly heralds an effective abolition of the legal right to practice all natural medicine professions.

The mandatory code of conduct standards, including requiring treatments to be “scientifically” substantiated, a test totally not required of our medical doctors, ensure any natural health profession or individual  practitioner singled out will have no hope of defending any state based prohibition proceedings. Hearings will be before a biased state based Complaints Commissioner, appointed by mainstream medical lobby groups, licking their cherry-picking chops that our naive politicians just abolished natural medicine without most even realising it.

Of course one politician bought off by Big Pharma did realise she abolished natural medicine, namely Victorian Health Minister Jill “all vaccines are safe” Hennessy, a lawyer by trade, who appointed an ex cop as head of staff,Kathy Ettershank and who ignored all my numerous correspondence and specific questions.

Help***

If you think I am over dramatising the scenario, bear in mind I assisted through most of the 66 days in the longest Victorian health practitioner case in 2013 before a criminally corrupt VCAT hearing headed by Senior Member Robert Davis.

The VCAT Tribunal overlooked the entire evidence of all six medical doctors, who were experts in the same field as the registered health practitioner. This evidence related to treatment of a single patient who had only complained he couldn’t pay the bill.

This corrupt Tribunal deregistered the practitioner by cherry picking evidence from various non expert witnesses, including the actual practitioner who was the first attack subject leading to the formation of the Friends of Science in Medicine, the ultimate source of cherry picking science. Work that one out – plus the deregistered practitioner had 906 peer reviewed journal articles on his website – not good enough science AHPRA said. At least AHPRA were embarrassed enough later to withdraw this case from its website list of relevant cases to guide other registered practitioners. Fortunately we defended the prohibition order sought by AHPRA so the brilliant health practitioner still practises, plus significantly, he was found to be of good character, a priceless asset worth fighting to the extremely bitter and disillusioning end.

Just came across this “horror movie” document which I say must be mailed by each of the 43 natural medicine associations registered with our Therapeutic Goods Administration to their members – see the 2015 Review by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)’s  Review of the Australian Government Rebate on Natural Therapies for Private Health Insurance

This politically motivated review is an absolute demolition derby of all of the main 17 natural professions by our INCREDIBLY CORRUPT National Health and Medical Research Council. Wait until you see how the NHMRC dealt with the other most contentiousness health debate of the day – mind blowing in its pseudo science approach and clear evidence of a raging criminal conspiracy in my opinion. Corruption to the Core I say. Working on a post to explain ASAP.

Maybe one quote from this 179 page NHMRC guillotine will be enough for natural practitioners, and their patients, to look for alternative leaders of their representative associations and better political options to consider voting for in the Senate, like the Health Australia Party. Check out the NHMRC’s main conclusion:

“Overall, there was not reliable, high-quality evidence available to allow assessment of the clinical effectiveness of any of the natural therapies for any health conditions.”

OUCH*******!!!!!!!!!!!!

I promise my next 8 weeks pre-election will mainly focus upon dismantling the NHMRC’s charade of an ethical government regulatory agency plus finding time to put a blow torch to that satanic puppet of Big Pharma, the Friends of Science in Medicine, the elite of science cherry pickers.

I did perform the role of Principal Legal Officer of the National Companies and Securities Commission in the 80’s – what a farce that regulatory body became with cronyism beyond my wildest naive imagination at the ripe old age of 26. The NHMRC is something else to behold so all of you NHMRC cronies enjoying your complacent unaccountable gravy train of corruption – be warned – your game is about to be challenged and I expect the usual intimidating fight with your mates at Friends of Science in Medicine screaming their lungs and vitriol too at any one who dares to question.

Back to HAPpy thoughts, the Health Australia Party – so check them out at Health Australia Party.

Please don’t be scared to comment one way or another – our health is too important to be scared – look what happened because no one spoke up in the Catholic Church in the 1970’s – that was one hell of a lot of child abuse because no one spoke out.
