Health News (Week 39 – 2015)NHN-28
By Robert Redfern

I have just got back from a Natural Health Practitioner Trade Show in London where I had lots of opportunity to rant to my heart’s content about the drug industry
and the medical attacks on natural health. Most Practitioners do not get the chance to have a good rant as they work on their own in a small office and it is not good practice to discuss this
with their clients. I am really lucky to get it off my chest – it is like having therapy every week.

Next week I will be in Las Vegas at another trade show with even more opportunities to rant. This week I thought I would share with you my ‘Robert’s Rant’, from Issue 28 of Naturally Healthy
News Magazine (just published).

Everybody knows (or thinks they know) what the word medicine means. Some say it is a friend in times of need when we are sick. I say, possibly – in a few cases. But in the main, it is
part of a fraud and deception when it comes to getting us healthy.


Hear my case and then decide. I will try not to digress as I only have 1000 words, but here I go:
First, I have to qualify the meaning of health. The medical system uses the word so loosely they appear not to want a real definition. An example is that they call themselves a health
service, whereas a more accurate description is a diseasemanagement system.
The Natural Health Movement agrees with the WHO (World Health Organisation) definition of Health:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”


The Oxford English Dictionary says that medicine is “the science or practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease (in technical use often taken to exclude
So, the first dictionary explanation is that medicine is “the science or practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.” Notice the part “science OR practice.” You
would think that medicine should be scientifically based, not a practice. Doesn’t the medical system and medical researchers (hereafter called The Medical Monopoly) brag that medicine
is science? Yes, they do. In fact, that is the whole big gun they aim at Natural Health through nutrition and lifestyle. They claim that their medicine is scientifically based and
that enzymes, minerals, and vitamins have no basis in science.


  1. Medicine is not scientific in general.
  2. Medicine does not work most of the time (as in, it does not get anyone healthy).
  3. Pharmaceutical marketing is based on bribery, deception, and fraud.
  4. Drug acceptance is based on scientific fraud and deception.
  5. Pharmaceutical companies are guilty of terrorizing and deceiving the population into taking their drugs.

Only around 8 per cent of conventional medicine has been scientifi cally proven to be eff ective, a new study has discovered. The ‘success’ of medicine has been achieved
through spin, data manipulation and by ignoring the failures.
The true picture has emerged only since regulations that control clinical medical trials have been tightened up in the US. Before the stricter rules were introduced in 2000,
57 per cent of large-budget clinical trials for the prevention or treatment of heart disease were returning positive results; since then, just 8 per cent of trials have been
Researchers from Oregon State University explored large trials that were funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. In all, of the 55 studies reviewed, 30 were
published before the regulations were tightened, and 25 published since. Of the 25 published more recently, just two had positive outcomes, compared with 17 of the 30
studies published under more lax reporting requirements.
Under the tougher rules, all clinical trials involving people must be posted with the database beforehand. This prevents poor results being forgotten, or
massaging the data to achieve a better outcome.
Although their analysis covered drugs and treatments only for heart disease, the researchers are confi dent they would see a similar picture emerge for treatments for
diabetes, cancer and any other disease.

I call it “The Medical Monopoly” because that is what it has become. Over hundreds of years, a battle raged between two distinct groups of physicians, the Natural Health Group and the
Medical Group (my descriptions). Since both groups mainly used herbs and minerals (and a few toxic substances), it really was a battle for power and not ideology. Of course, they made
up various reasons to denigrate and disparage the other group’s work and results, but none of this was based upon science.
I first came across the history of this battle when I read a huge book called The Cambridge Illustrated History of Medicine by Roy Sydney Porter. At the time, in the early
’90s, I was in the early phase of my research to understand why both of my parents had died young (my mother at 62 and my father a year later at 64). Roy Porter (1946-2002) was the
historian at the Wellcome Trust in London when he wrote this book, and he is justifiably recognised as the most influential historian of medicine of his generation. In the book, he
explains the battle that raged between the two groups of physicians in a surprisingly balanced way.
This did surprise me as I do include the Wellcome Trust as part of The Medical Monopoly. I justify this inclusion as it has the largest stash of tax-free cash at £16 billion and is
the second largest private investor in the world of The Medical Monopoly, after the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that has copied this tax-free trust model. We know that these
two mega tax-free trusts are part of (or support) The Medical Monopoly.
Unfortunately, Roy Porter trusted the same doctor model that was supposed to look after the health of my parents, and he dropped dead at the even younger age of 58.
In the last 100 years or so, the group I have named, The Medical Monopoly, has all but won this battle. There are other books you can read such as my other favourite, Dirty Medicine
by Martin Walker. Walker is a journalist/writer who set out to write a book that would rubbish the Natural Health movement (he believed in doctors at that time) and ended up
discovering the massive criminality and fraud of The Medical Monopoly. Martin Walker’s second book, Dirty Medicine: The HandBook, logs many of the politicians, doctors, and
pharmaceutical companies involved in this fraud. Read also a book by UK physician/journalist Ben Goldacre, who, while not being convinced of the benefi ts of Natural Health, is also
not a friend of Big Pharma. His book, Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients, documents the pharmaceutical industry, its relationship with the medical
profession, and the extent to which it controls academic research into its own products.


The Medical Monopoly makes a generous living based on misinformation. Most of us have believed the half-truths spread in the medical community for far too long. Here are the facts we
know about The Medical Monopoly:

  1. It is not scientifi c as 80 per cent of all medicines prescribed have never undergone double blind trials.
  2. The 20 per cent that have had trials are suspect as Big Pharma has been caught committing scientifi c fraud many times and has been fi ned billions by regulators, which they seem
    happy to pay.
  3. Not only do the drugs NOT get anyone healthy, but they are documented in killing thousands and possibly millions each year.
  4. Big Pharma has been found guilty of bribing doctors to prescribe their drugs.
  5. In the USA, there is a public register of these payments or benefi ts in kind. See
  6. Any doctor who prescribes them is also suspect if they allow the drug company reps from these criminal companies to visit their premises.
  7. In the UK, the Prime Minister, David Cameron, accepted a big, fat donation cheque from the boss of GSK just two weeks after GSK was fi ned billions for their fraud. Many other UK
    politicians are in the direct pay of drug companies.
  8. Politicians of power in the USA and, in fact, in any uncivilized country are all in the pay of Big Pharma, or at least, they keep their mouth shut tight about it as though that
    makes it moral.

If you follow the lifestyle plan in any of my books on page 34 in this magazine, you will become healthier. That is an absolute promise. How healthy will always depend on how
accurately you follow the plan and how advanced you are. The worse your condition, the longer it takes.

Mike Tawse was at death’s door, taking 14 Pharma drugs, and within months was off all of them with his doctor’s permission as she could see he just did not need them anymore. He is
convinced now it was the drugs that were making him so sick. “Though you can’t go back and make a brand new start.

You can start from now and make a brand new end.”

We will reply to all rants!

Whatever your budget you can’t risk not taking something and ending up with a disease that will devastate your life. Whether it is one or two things such as Serranol, SerraEnzyme 250,000iu, Active Life, or the 15 things my wife and I take daily, they are infinitely
better than the diseases stealing the future of the majority.
