Natural & Herbal Medicines

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - November 8, 2011
Host: George Noory
Guests: Ty Bollinger, Dr. Michael Farley, Jesse Ventura

Author and health freedom advocate, Ty Bollinger, and naturopathic doctor, Michael Farley, discussed the uses of herbal and natural medicines and addressed why harmless herbal products may be taken off the market while deadly drugs are still legal, and how the FDA is attacking herbs and vitamins. Recent articles declaring the inefficacy of dietary/herbal supplements are backed by Big Pharma, said Bollinger. But when it comes to products that have no medicinal value, he continued, statin drugs have been shown by pharmaceutical companies' own research to not extend lifespans, and antidepressants actually double your risk of relapsing into depression.

The FDA is looking to change earlier legislation about dietary supplements, and gain further control over them, like the UN's Codex Alimentarius is doing, Bollinger cautioned. Their restrictive plan would have supplement makers remove their products for 75 days, and fill out an approval application for each new ingredient combination since 1994, he detailed. Dr. Farley (joining the program in the third hour) cited the difference between allopathic medicine, which treats symptoms, and the naturopathic approach which treats the whole person. "Dr. Farley has developed numerous herbal remedies for cancer that are amazingly effective," Bollinger said.

Among the natural compounds Farley cited were: Chrysin, a flavonoid from the Passion Flower, that works with hormone levels to prevent the invasion of cancer cells; Coriolus Versicolor, a Chinese mushroom which increases the cytotoxity of natural killer cells; Diindolymethane, a phytochemical from cruciferous vegetables that inhibits cancer cells; as well as turmeric, resveratrol, and green tea extract. He also mentioned a quick, natural cure for food poisoning such as from E.coli or Listeria: a cup of raw honey mixed with a couple tablespoons of ginger.

Ventura's TSA Lawsuit

First hour guest, former Governor of Minnesota, and host of Conspiracy Theory, Jesse Ventura, reacted to the dismissal of his airport security lawsuit, which argued that airport scans and pat-downs amount to unreasonable search and seizure. Because he was not able to present his case in front of a jury, "it tells you that the Bill of Rights is gone, because you have nowhere to go," he commented, explaining that the Federal judge who reviewed his case said she didn't have jurisdiction in the matter. He foresees a time coming when people will be subjected to searches beyond airports such as at train & bus stations, and even highways.
