Health Outcomes First. Let Bureaucrats Know.

There are at least three more quotes we want to share from Brett Hawes’ podcast interview with Shawn Buckley. They are just too good to miss. The subject of intellectual property rights is one that flows through all areas of government policy development. In the case of chemical drugs, the intellectual property rights a pharmaceutical company owns over their drug product are prioritized over healing potential. Intellectual property laws protect drug companies from others copying their patented formula. This allows them to recoup research costs. The patent period creates a monopoly for each individual new drug. That then secures profitability by eliminating competition and justifying astronomical prices to consumers in the name of scientific innovation.

Thank You to NHP Manufacturers!

Manufacturers catalyze NHPPA’s work—but only a few. Kudos go out to those who have allowed us to take action. Their partnerships are without equal. They were the backbone that drove the success of our “Do You Want My Vote?” MP postcard campaign. The campaign saw over 320,000 postcards shipped across the country. It was possible for NHPPA to reach retailers through their channels. They recognize what they, and all Canadians, have to lose if the Self-Care Framework is fully implemented.

Thank You to Natural Solutions Health Store!

Retailers have been an integral part of NHPPA’s successes. They are the front lines. Directly reaching the public, everyday. They educate, inform and change lives. They are a trusted resource with a collective voice that is heard by MPs as business owners and employers. Allied retailers across the country are using their positions to advocate for continued access to natural health products through NHPPA’s action campaigns with materials like the Charter of Health Freedom petition and “Help Us Fight Back” brochure.

Fired Quebec Scientist Blew the Whistle on Pesticide Lobby Influence, National Observer

Rebel superheroes walk among us. In this March 21, 2019 article (9 minute read), “Fired Quebec Scientist Blew the Whistle on Pesticide Lobby Influence”, government censorship silenced former public servant Louis Robert. He was fired after being threatened for attempting to educate superiors and the public about pesticide and fertilizer use. Robert’s story reminds us of our friend Shiv Chopra who blew the whistle on Health Canada for pressuring him to approve a series of drugs including Bovine Growth Hormone for use in animal farming.

Charter of Health Freedom Petition Update Oct 26/19

4,543 more! While Canada was busy counting votes at the polls, NHPPA was busy counting signatures. The Charter of Health Freedom petition broke 100,000 signatures just a few months ago, in July 2019. By September 2019, the growing momentum of this movement was clear. The resulting envelopes full of petition pages arriving in our mailbox in rapid succession necessitated another petition count not even three months after the last one. The Charter of Health Freedom petition now carries 105,950 signatures!

You Made It Happen

Congratulate yourselves. It worked. Those of you who were part of the campaign that saw 320,000 election-issue postcards sent across Canada held a belief that we would be heard. We had four names on NHPPA’s “Do You Want My Vote” MP postcards. We’d like to draw your attention to number 3—Mr. Pierre Sabourin. He is, of course, one of the four bureaucrats at Health Canada responsible for the creation of the Self-Care Framework and the current program head.

Germany and Luxembourg Uphold the Status Quo of Homeopathic Medicines, ECHAMP

NHPPA joins ECHAMP (European Coalition on Homeopathic and Anthroposophic Medicinal Products) to celebrate Germany’s ongoing commitment to health freedom. German health minister Jens Spahn announced that due to its relatively low cost and high demand, homeopathic medicines will continue to be reimbursed by insurance companies. While homeopathic remedies are not publicly funded in Germany, they are reimbursed by 70% of health insurance companies. This decision echoes those recently made by the health minister in Luxembourg, another country that recognizes the validity and power of homeopathic medicines.
