Newsweek’s Opinion on Alternative Medicine

Recently Newsweek did a hatchet job on Oprah and Alternative Medicine in general for spreading “dubious advice” on a wide range of health topics. The piece also criticized my good friend Chris Northrup MD for warning Oprah’s audience of the HPV vaccine and recommending dietary and lifestyle changes to enhance their natural immunity instead.

2 articles I read about in the Newsweek piece basically articulate my feelings on all of this. Obviously the powers that be, who do not want the system to change and the Pharmaceutical Industry, which has close ties to Newsweek and the media in general are behind this.

The Vueweekly article I recommend you read ends with this great quote by German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, which is so true.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

There seems to be a disturbing trend occurring, with a recent blitz of media articles seeking to put a bad spin on Alternative Medicine and anything Natural or not accepted by the system. We have passed through the first stage and are in the midst of the second stage, so hold on to your horses.
