I just sent this mssg to Michael Moore after watching his latest documentary film which is called "Sicko" and which covers numerous abuses and injustices inherent in the health care system- see http://www.michaelmoore.com/ 

As you can see I'm encouraging him to consider exploring the possibility of creating a sequel to the film which would examine the suppression of alternative medicine and the suppression of dietary supplements as this information was not included in Sicko. Some of you may wish to send your own email to Michael in which you could approach this issue from your own perspective. He might be more likely to pay attention if he hears from a lot of us.

I and some others attempted to have input into Sicko while he was making it, but we weren't successful even though we had the ear of someone who worked for him. I'm still not entirely sure why he ignored our attempt to provide this input in the past, but it could be that he just lacks some basic awareness. I myself lacked this basic awareness at one time in my life and my eyes weren't open until I had my own personal healing experience which I tell Michael about in the email below. 

On another note, we had a conversation recently with the Legislative Director of a member of Congress who were hoping will introduce an amendment to HR 2900 which is the House companion bill to S.1082 and we're fairly sure this Congressman will sponsor an amendment that we need, but we won't know til July 11th or so after he returns from July 4th vacation. As soon as I know more about this I'll let you all know. If we can get this person to sponsor an amendment, I'm anticipating making a trip back to DC before August recess, and I'll keep you posted on this. Also, a bill is going to be introduced soon to counter the FDA's Good Manufacturing Practice regulations which threaten to drive a lot of very small and small vitamin companies under and also raise prices to consumers. More on this in the near future as things develop. Please see my email to Michael Moore and please consider sending him your own mssg, and if you do, please bcc me on it.

Re: Thoughts on a Sequel to Sicko


Your film "Sicko" was a monumental undertaking, and it was great, as far as it went, but there is a whole side of things you didn't cover at all: the suppression of alternative medicine and the pharmaceutical attack on the dietary supplement industry. I realize including this information might have not been possible in Sicko due to time constraints, but I hope you'll consider making an additional film which delves into this whole additional side to the health care equation. As a person who recovered from schizophrenia nearly 30 years ago via a suppressed alternative treatment (orthomolecular medicine) after mainstream psychiatry almost killed me,  I think it would be great if you made an additional film to address this side of things.

As natural substances, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements and hormones can't be patented. The pharmaceutical industry suppresses their use because they compete in the marketplace with their patented Rx drugs. The pharmaceutical industry has a business with disease, its not in their best interests that people actually heal at the cellular level which is possible to do via vitamins, so they use the FDA like a trade association, which they control, to attack the dietary supplement industry.

You'll find my story here
http://www.iahf.com/on_the_back_wards.html  As you can see, after 3 years locked up inside the psychiatric gulag in which they almost killed me with toxic drugs that failed to address the root causes of my symptoms, I was able to smuggle in vitamins following a weekend visit home in which my mom took me to an orthomolecular MD who did a lot of lab work that my doctors didn't know how to do because this is all suppressed.

I was forced to hide the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements, and hormones in a cavity gouged out from the underside of my foam mattress and take the vitamins secretly while mouthing the toxic medication they tried to force me to take which I spat down the toilet while only taking the vitamins. After 3 weeks I was doing so much better that they gave me a full medical discharge while scratching their heads wondering which of their drugs had been helping me. None were. During the 4 years I spent locked up after being driven out of college by these imbalances, the mainstream psychiatrists almost killed me.

There is a huge global movement working to defend consumer access to dietary supplements which are under constant attack legislatively. Via the UN's Codex Alimentarius Commission, a move is afoot to ban consumer access to vitamins and minerals within the therapeutic range- as well as to the most effective dietary supplements. Please see this 28 minute documentary film which I am in along with several others in our global health freedom movement which addresses this threat:
http://www.welltv.com  In addition to this attack coming from the UN level, dietary supplements are under constant attack globally via domestic legislation.

There is much more I could tell you about this, but I wanted to send you this for starters as I'm sure you receive an overwhelming amount of email. Please contact me if you'd like to discuss any aspect of this and thanks for your good work! I hope you'll look into this additional side of things. People who have been helped by alternative healing modes are the pharmaceutical industries worst nightmare because they have a business with disease.

They don't make money when people are healthy and can stay healthy- they have a vested interest in keeping people sick, having people go to their hospitals, and to their doctors where they get prescriptions written for drugs which are all too often fraudulently approved-- eg: Avandia, the diabetes drug which killed 35,000 people last year because the FDA ignored their own research which indicated it would cause a huge number of heart attacks. You should know that Linus Pauling,PhD and Matthias Rath, MD have developed a nutritional protocol that successfully treats and reverses human cardiovascular disease- the world's number one killer disease, but its all being suppressed- please see
