Pills might not be the answer ...

'Mind body techniques have gone through the same scientific process in terms of effectiveness and validity than say pharmaceuticals and surgery,' Dr. Tomer Anbar of the Mind Body Health initiative said of holistic health methods - a newly revived form of medicine.
A report from The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University found that "more than 15 million Americans are abusing prescription drugs."
This false sense of absolute protection causes many of the careless unsustainable lifestyles that people live. The holistic health industry, better known as Mind Body Health, encompasses a way of living that we've been taught for ages: Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables; practice meditation and yoga; visit a massage therapist regularly, and stay active.
Many aspects of alternative medicine can be effective but are not incorporated in mainstream medicine. In a study by Dr. Hemstreet, 483 MD licenses were canceled for using aspects of alternative medicine or natural healing system nutrition. (Note from Ilena: It is now known that my nemesis, Stephen Barrett, has been a part of the attacks against licensed physicians for decades.)
Thank you so much for any donation you can share with us.
The Humantics Foundation has kept the message of the dangers of breast implants before the public for 16 years now ... providing free information & support on this highly charged, controversial topic. We have maintained a network of support for women harmed by breast implants via email lists and groups and continue to provide telephone and email support on a daily basis.
We speak out too, on vaccination danger awareness, and the cover-up of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, from which many, many in our support groups suffer.
By doing so, the entire time, we have been the target of industry backed legal and smear campaigns attempting to silence our voice and bankrupt us. It's been very challenging, to put it gently, and we're still here, thanks to God's grace and the generosity of friends and supporters.
Today more than ever ... the breast implant industry and their very connected public relations teams have a lot of power to keep their corporate backed message before the public.

Some of you may have heard of Barrett Vs Rosenthal.
After 7 long, expensive years of litigation, I recently prevailed in a California Supreme Court Decision which protects web posters from being sued for reposting the words of another.
I quote from The Matrix: "Fate, it seems, is not without a touch of Irony."
While suing me for libel (& losing) ... the plaintiffs and their public relations connections have waged massive smear campaigns of monumental proportions against me and the other defendants.
