(Exercising Your Mind) If you have not been to a Health Freedom Expo, you should make an effort to attend the next one you can. The next one I know of will be in Chicago, Illinois from June 4th through the 6th 2010. (http://healthfreedomexpo.com/lb/)
I recently attended this Saturday March 27th 2010. It was my first Health Freedom Expo. I learned a great deal from being there and the experience was fantastic. It was great to mingle with like minded people sharing ideas and participating in the support and motivation for natural health.
Amongst the presenters were Charlie, G. Brown, Esq., “The Health Ranger” Mike Adams, “Genetic Roulette” Author & genetically modified food activist Jeffrey Smith, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Orthomolecular Psychiatrist Dr. Hyla Cass, Dr. Leonard Coldwell, Dr. Carolyn Dean and many others.
Some of the topics covered were the new Health Reform Bill, mercury amalgam tooth fillings, Death by Modern Medicine, Reclaim Your Brain with natural treatments, avoiding GMOs and the Health Freedom Revolution to name a few.
A great experience was to see that there were many people who, like me, were 1st time attendees to the Expo. It was also empowering to see so many people with a similar focus on natural health and the freedom to have those choices.
However, for the most part it was like “preaching to the choir”. Even though there were a lot of newcomers to that specific event, many people there were already involved in their own way in the Health Freedom Movement.
There was very little, if any debate or opposition to these experts and revolutionaries. Please understand, the event is much needed and works as is, but we need to bring more people out to these events who need a wake up call, as so many do.
I believe that when people organize and gather in this way, it helps to build momentum for the much needed awareness of Health Freedom violations.
It also increases the personal power and confidence of those who are already aware, so that they can continue living healthy lives through natural means as an example to others.
There exist so many natural healing modalities for cancer, diabetes, alzheimer’s, obesity, mental illness and an endless cache of diseases that are intentionally being hidden from the citizens of many countries and especially in the United States of America.
One of the most disturbing recent developments in the U.S.A., is President Obama’s new Health Care Reform Bill. Look it up yourself, but it basically will force you to purchase health insurance if you don’t have it already, and if you refuse, then you get a hefty fine of up to $2,250 USD.
As Mike Adams wrote in a March 22nd article, all this does is “…lock in billions of dollars in monopoly profits for the pharmaceutical companies — the same companies who spent millions of dollars pushing for its passage and who depend on the continuation of sickness and disease for their future profits”.

HypnoAthletics and The Health Ranger
Hakeem Alexander & Mike Adams
The importance of this new legislation in Health Care is that it summarizes the core of how our Health Freedom has been, and is being stolen from right out in front of us disguised as “reform”.
For example, I have been healing myself with exercise and meditation, yoga, Orthomolecular nutritional therapies, massage and Chiropractic, eating organic foods and occasionally visiting Traditional Chinese Medical Doctors.
I have been doing this without health insurance because most of it is not covered by insurance except perhaps chiropractor visits. The healing modalities I choose to apply because
- I know they work from personal experience,
- They make more sense biologically, and
- The literature supporting natural health is more logical than the conventional western medicine and should have been added as covered services by health care professionals. That would have been a real health care reform
Instead, what we now have is a system that is forcing healthy people, who may or may not be using natural remedies and treatments, to fall in line and pay for insurance that only covers invasive diagnostic techniques, unnecessary surgeries, and worst of all extremely poisonous pharmaceutical chemical injections, pills and patches.
In the same March 22nd article, Mike Adams sums it up this way: “All Americans are now required to pay into a sick-care system of monopolized, pharmaceutical medicine even if they reject that failed system of medicine“.
Meanwhile, the very people who have been hypno-lied to, and condemned to a slow suffering death by pharmaceutical means, are cheering this so-called reform and President Obama for signing it in.
The point is this: If you want health insurance and to obtain the medical services offered by the dominant ideology about health forwarded by pharmaceutical companies, go right ahead, that is your choice. But do not try to force me to do the same thing when it violates all of my sensibilities, knowledge, experience and let’s not forget my freedom of choice – my Health Freedom!
Whether or not people who claim that this legislation is unconstitutional are barking up the wrong tree (refer to Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution), the new Health Care Reform is still a violation, because it leaves out the choice to use the insurance we are being compelled to pay for, in a way that I know to be a real healing modality such as the natural healing methods I have listed above (nutrition, exercise, etc.). That in itself should cause alarm to anyone who desires freedom of any kind.
And you should know, that if you haven’t been broken by having to pay a $2,250 fine, financially or psychologically – that will be paid to the pharmaceutical companies no doubt; you will have to feed them the next year too with the same fine.
And the next year, and the next, and so on ad infinitum. It renews annually just as if you were paying for insurance, except you get nothing but harrassment for your money. Unless of course you give in and pay for insurance which you will not be able to use for the types of treatment you desire, or, when we act together to make this unjust invasion of our Health Freedom disappear.
My understanding of this issue is that it is simply bringing more to the forefront what has been proceeding unseen for quite some time. And it is that pharmaceutical, monetary influence has taken over government in order to force citizens to be enslaved by their ideology that chemical intensive, artificial treatment is for everyone at all times under every circumstance.
This is simply a matter of money in their pockets, not about your health, my health, or the health of your friends and family.
