Aetna Insurance: Will the “Cavitat” Case Take The Company Down?…

The American medical system is broken. And, it isn’t worth fixing. Americans know that, and perhaps, without conscious thought, are abandoning it for “alternatives,” in droves.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The National Science Foundation, a few years ago, issued a report that shocked the medical industry. It said, simply, that 88% of adult Americans believed in, and used, some form of “alternative” to medicine. As early as 1998 reports showed that half of the total US health dollar was being spent on “alternatives.” Even more shocking to industry was the fact that, not only were Americans using those “alternatives,” but they were paying for them out-of pocket – because neither insurance, nor Medicare, would pay for them. Americans bought them anyway.

Obviously, there is a paradigm shift happening. Thank God for that. Continue reading Aetna Insurance: Will the “Cavitat” Case Take The Company Down?…

FDA Ephedra Ban REVERSED by US Court…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

There is no question that the the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is owned and operated as an adjunct to Big Pharma.  It is.

FDA executives are at the beck and call of Planet Earth’s pharmaceutical industry.  They don’t even bother to hide that fact.  FDA leaders see their role as four things:  (1)  get as many mega-dangerous drugs as possible approved as fast as possible, with the least amount of testing, (2)  turn a blind eye towards, and cover up as much negative drug information (adverse reaction) as possible (3) act as a marketing partner for Big Pharma, (4)  use their authority to attack, and harass, Big Pharma’s competitors for health dollars. Continue reading FDA Ephedra Ban REVERSED by US Court…

UK Parliament SMASHES Big Pharma…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Just two days ago, in my newsletter article The Coming “US Health Movement v. Big Pharma” Codex War…, I announced the demise of Big Pharma’s attempt to shut down the supplement industry.  But little did I know at the time that that day, Tuesday, April 5th, 2005, would go down in the annals as a double-whammy of Big Pharma’s murderous intent.  Wait ’til you read this. Continue reading UK Parliament SMASHES Big Pharma…

The Coming “US Health Movement v. Big Pharma” Codex War…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

This morning I received an e-mail from my attorney friend, and fellow health activist, Ralph Fucetola, The Vitamin Lawyer, telling me about the victory in Europe against the “European Food Directive”.  It was held, by the Court, to be invalid.  Here’s what Ralph said: Continue reading The Coming “US Health Movement v. Big Pharma” Codex War…

California “Sinaiko” Case:  The “Quackbuster’s” Breaking Point…

April 4th, 2005

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

For years the “quackbuster”  attacks against innovative health practitioners were handled, by health activists, in the “defense” mode.  The California “Sinaiko” case was the turning point.

The reason:  the “quackbusters”  had won so many battles, and had caused so many problems for innovative health practitioners since the “Plan of ’96” took effect, that they were arrogant beyond belief. Continue reading California “Sinaiko” Case:  The “Quackbuster’s” Breaking Point…

In California:  We know How to Treat “Quackbusters”…

Victory can be so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o sweet…  I’ll tell you about our latest victory in a minute, but first…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

In California we like to have first rate health care.  The attitude is “we deserve it.”  We’ve got the fifth largest stand-alone economy in the world – and it isn’t by accident.  California is vibrant, and we’re into “health” here.

The North American “quackbuster”  operation is scrambling for survival – because, among other things, Californians boil them in oil – so to speak. Continue reading In California:  We know How to Treat “Quackbusters”…

“Tennessee Medicine” – What Were You Thinking?…  An OPEN Letter to the Tennessee Medical Association

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Someone forwarded to me an article coming up in your April 2005 issue of “Tennessee Medicine” called “The CAM Controversy: Should Tennessee Embrace Complementary and Alternative Medicine?”  On the whole the article wasn’t too bad, and it portrayed the controversy fairly well EXCEPT FOR your use, as a credible resource, of known crackpot, and failed MD, Stephen Barrett, and the defunct National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF).

What were you thinking? Continue reading “Tennessee Medicine” – What Were You Thinking?…  An OPEN Letter to the Tennessee Medical Association

Quackbusters “Horse-Whipped” by Missouri Supreme Court…

The North American “quackbuster”  operation is scrambling for survival – because, among other things, the American Court System is “horse-whipping” them.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

I just received word about a new Supreme Court Case Decision involving an attack on an innovative health practitioner, Edward W. McDonagh, D.O., from Missouri, who had the common sense to use chelation therapy on his heart patients. Continue reading Quackbusters “Horse-Whipped” by Missouri Supreme Court…

The “Quackbuster’s” Attack on Dental Medicine…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

I’m a severe critic of the broken North American Health Care System.  For the most part, so far, I’ve focused my commentaries on the medical world.   I’ve not ignored the dental world – I just haven’t given it all the attention it deserves.  From what I’ve seen, though, North American Dentistry may be in worse shape than Medicine. Continue reading The “Quackbuster’s” Attack on Dental Medicine…

Salem “Which” Hunt…   An Open Letter to the Editors of the Salem News…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Today I was forwarded a copy of your February 28th, 2005 online article titled “The Quack Catcher” by Staff Writer Julie Kirkwood.

After my laughter died down – I asked myself “Which Robert Baratz are they talking about?  It couldn’t be the well known hair removal and ear piercing specialist one who claims to be the president of the self-styled National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), for all over the internet is the REAL description of Baratz.” Continue reading Salem “Which” Hunt…   An Open Letter to the Editors of the Salem News…

Understanding “Codex”…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

I get a lot of e-mails, phone calls, and personal requests to “get involved” in the “Codex” problem.  Until today, you haven’t heard anything from me on the subject.  Why?

Because, simply, I haven’t yet figured out exactly what’s happening with the whole thing.  I, myself, have been asking questions of my contacts all over the world.  I have a lot of contacts. Continue reading Understanding “Codex”…

New Zealand Counter-Assaults Big Pharma…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

The battle for reality in health care rages across Planet Earth.  Big Pharma, in its murderous greed, throws money at its minions like hale on a Kansas farm.  Despite massive cash infusions to protect their deadly interests – they are NOT winning.

Attached is a story sent to me from New Zealand, detailing the efforts of the New Zealand Health Freedom Movement – where they are, so to speak, battering Big Pharma’s goon squads in the streets… Continue reading New Zealand Counter-Assaults Big Pharma…

Health Freedom:  CHELATION VICTORY in Connecticut…

Chelation therapy is now completely legal in Connecticut.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The Connecticut Medical Board, on Tuesday February 15th, 2005, was presented with a negotiated settlement in the Connecticut Health Department versus Robban Sica MD case.  The parties recommending this settlement were the Connecticut Department of Health (DOPH), the Connecticut Attorney General, Robban Sica MD and her attorneys, the International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM), and the American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM).  The board accepted the recommendation. Continue reading Health Freedom:  CHELATION VICTORY in Connecticut…

“Stalker” Terry Polevoy;  The Quackbuster’s Nut Case?…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen 

Just a little north of the US border, in Waterloo/Kitchener, Ontario,  is the home, and acne care business, of Terry Polevoy MD, Canada’s number one self styled quackbuster.”   Polevoy, well versed in bigotry and scare tactics, operates a “hate” operation.  His hatred is for those that espouse “alternative medicine,” in any form.  His website, healthwatcher.net, is a miasma of crazy talk, odd colors and combinations, and a presentation that seems clearly out of the mind of a seriously disturbed individual. Continue reading “Stalker” Terry Polevoy;  The Quackbuster’s Nut Case?…

“Western Medicine:” The World Has Suffered Enough…

The five components of Western Medicine are guilty, in my opinion, of more crimes against humanity than any other entity in mankind’s history.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

As we sit here, the very structure of western civilization is at risk because of the sheer murderous greed of the number (1) component of Western Medicine – Big Pharma.  Health Care costs in the the US and Europe have gone over the top, just because Big Pharma thinks it’s OK to gouge.  US Seniors on a limited income have to make choices between food or drugs each month.  The Vioxx scandal points out just how murderous Big Pharma executives can become, in the name of profit.  Continue reading “Western Medicine:” The World Has Suffered Enough…

Quackbusters “Shortt-Circuited” in South Carolina…

Generally speaking, I’ve always found that the word “inept” usually describes “quackbuster” leadership.  I’ve never been proven wrong.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

The “quackbusters,” or in this case the more aptly descriptive term “quackpots,” are getting desperate for a victory.  They thought the Jim Shortt MD case in South Carolina would do the trick.  But it isn’t happening for them.  Today was another example. Continue reading Quackbusters “Shortt-Circuited” in South Carolina…

Doctors Attack “60 Minutes” Shortt Story…

CBS has a well deserved BAD reputation among News journalists.  It’s a fact one considers when dealing with them.  Yet,  I wasn’t a bit hesitant to let them into Jim Shortt’s story – for good reason – the old adage “There’s no such thing as bad press.”

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

There’s a war going on in North America between the forces of “Health” and “Medicine.”  “Health” is winning, not because it has more money and power, but because the people of North America, and the world, have found out that there is a definite difference between the two – and that it is better to be healthy than medicated.

In fact, it is becoming clear that the two are opposites. Continue reading Doctors Attack “60 Minutes” Shortt Story…

So, You Didn’t Like the “60 Minutes” Jim Shortt MD Story…

“60 Minutes” Producer Andy Court believes, strongly, that the piece on Alternative Medicine practitioner Jim Shortt that ran Wednesday January 12th, 2005 was“fair and balanced.”  He called me, and told me so.

But from the phone calls, and e-mails, I’m getting, much of the real world doesn’t agree with him.  They say it was a typical CBS – Dan Rather, “make up the news as you go along” report.  Something CBS is publicly known for.

“60 Minutes” to Air Jim Shortt MD Story Tonight…

Big Pharma’s “quackbuster,”  operation went into overdrive a few months ago trying to find a story, any story, to take the heat off Merck’s mass murder of over 55,000 Americans with their deadly “Vioxx” product.  Merck had been caught spending over 500 million dollars to mass market Vioxx after they were well aware, and took steps to cover up, Vioxx’s  deadly characteristics.

As yet, no arrests have been made of the Merck executives involved – or of the US Food & Drug (FDA) agents involved in the cover-up.
