“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.”
— Benjamin Rush (1746-1813)
Benjamin Rush — writer, educator, personal physician of George Washington — was a Founding Father of the United States and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. One can’t help wonder what he would be saying about the state of today’s medical dictates. We now have laws allowing separation of minor age children from their families, if parents do not submit their child for the legally-sanctioned toxic cancer treatments. We are experiencing a massive push to legislate mandatory vaccination, despite well-documented evidence of problems with the safety and efficacy of these pharmaceuticals. Fluoridation of our public water supplies — a form of mass medication — continues as more and more studies reveal health dangers related to toxicity.
There is a frenzy afoot, based on fear instead of facts, profits over accountability, threatening the individual’s right to choose how to protect his/her health and that of their families.
First and foremost, be informed about your choices. Investigate; question. If Dr. Rush were around today, more than likely he’d be out there urging you to let your legislators know how you feel about your right to medical freedom!
To your health!

We hope you’ll continue to support our efforts and make use of our resources — our film, Rethinking Cancer, now streaming on Itunes, and our many publications and articles.

The Choice Is Yours by Ruth Sackman
This article, first published in our official F.A.C.T. magazine, Cancer Forum, is now included in our latest book, Healing Cancer — The Unconventional Wisdom of Ruth Sackman.
How do you decide what to do when your doctor says, “It’s cancer”? You’ve heard about alternatives, but there are so many and the claims of efficacy sound so dramatic. Can it all be true? You know that the conventional cancer treatment of surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy has an overall claimed cure rate of 50%. You find yourself in a panic about making a decision. Let me try to clarify the information for the lay person and dispel the myths perpetuated by both the conventional adherents and alternative supporters. READ MORE
We live in a sea of screens. Indeed, many people spend 8 or more hours every day staring at various versions of them. Moreover, our eyes are constantly being stimulated by artificial lights — blinking traffic lights, neon lights, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), even energy-saving LEDs (which emit blue light that can generate high amounts of oxidative stress). Over time, this can spell trouble for the eyes, resulting in a condition now called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), characterized by: squinting, blurred vision, dry, red eyes, itchy eyes, watery eyes, double vision, headaches, neck or back pain.

Burdock — Know Your Roots
You’ve probably seen burdock in the produce section of your health food store — gnarled, rather grungy-looking roots that don’t look particularly exciting to the taste buds (though the taste is actually quite pleasant). But beauty is way more than skin deep and this one’s got a whole lot to offer, e.g., as a blood purifier, lymphatic strengthener, natural diuretic, skin healer, a defense against diabetes, cancer, arthritis, etc., not to mention being the inspiration for Velcro AND a possible aphrodesiac!

This medicinal herbal tea helps cleanse the body of toxins, restore and stimulate the liver and gall bladder, and, in general, help to rebalance and revitalize the whole body. Because of its strong diuretic and detoxifying actions, it should be taken no more than 2-3 times a day and for short intervals of time. For some people, prolonged use of burdock may cause urinary tract irritation. Check other precautions in the burdock article above,
- Bring 2 cups of pure water to a boil.
- If using fresh burdock, take a firm root, wash and scrape clean. Use about 1 tablespoon chopped or sliced for 2 cups of water. For dried, use 1-2 teaspoons.
- Place the herb in a pan or bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes.
- Strain and drink no more than 2-3 cups a day for short periods of time. This is a strong tea with a soothing, pleasant flavor. If you like, you can add a bit of raw honey or lemon juice.
