Quote by Thomas Jefferson

File:Thomas Jefferson rev.jpg

"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls who live under tyranny." -- Thomas Jefferson

The quote above is a paraphrase taken from Jefferson's Notes on Virginia, Query XVII (1781-1785).  The original quote centered around the concept of natural rights as it related to freedom of choice regarding our own bodies and souls.  As long as we do not harm others, we can think and do whatever we please.  This is how the founding fathers defined freedom.  This was originally what was meant by "common law" and "natural law".   (The original concept of common law has been perverted by a corrupt judiciary under the bar association.)

However, governments violate our natural rights by creating "political laws"--Have you ever wondered where the word "police" came from?--and these "political laws" have nothing to do with natural rights or the original meaning of common law.  They are all about restraining people against their will, against their natural rights, and there does not have to be an injured party.  Political laws have nothing to do with doing harm. 

"Licenses", for example, were all created out of political laws.  The US Supreme Court has ruled that we all have the natural right to travel, but unfortunately, political laws were created to require a "license to drive", which can now only be gotten by having a "social security number" (in the US).  It is not mandatory to obtain a social security number, but if you do not have one, you can't get a driver's license.  So if you're traveling safely with an automobile and a "police" officer sees that you don't have your seat belt on, he may arrest you and take you to jail for not having a seat belt on and for not having a "driver's license".  Or if you are caught fishing without a "fishing license", you could go to jail or be fined.  In either case no harm was done and no one was injured, yet one's natural rights are violated as well as the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights.  The social security system was also created by political laws.  In this case the political law regarding licensing and the social security number is US Code, Title 42, Section 666, which was created by members of the Bar Association.

Here is the original quote that Jefferson wrote:

"The error seems not sufficiently eradicated, that the operations of the mind, as well as the acts of the body, are subject to the coercion of the laws.  But our rulers can have authority over such natural rights only as we have submitted to them.  The rights of conscience we never submitted, we could not submit. We are answerable for them to our God.  The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others....Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now.  Thus in France the emetic was once forbidden as a medicine, and the potatoe as an article of food."
Jefferson's Notes on Viriginia, Query XVII (1781-1785)

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President













File:Benjamin Rush Painting by Peale 1783.jpg"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an underground dictatorship....To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science.  All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic....The Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."   Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Independence


According to the American Medical Association [JAMA], over 100,000 people are killed by pharmaceutical drugs in hospitals every year!  Furthermore,  mainstream medicine is the third leading cause of death in the United States!


 Who is taking away our health freedoms and restricting the art of healing?

AMA:  Medical Control, Medical Corruption


According to a 174-page report by the U.S. National Poison Data System the number of people killed in 2009 across America by vitamins, minerals, amino acids or herbal supplements is exactly zero!

In addition to providing information on health and freedom issues, one of the purposes of this web site is to introduce people to herbal medicine and to provide unbiased, accurate information and documentation regarding the herbs in Rene Caisse's cancer remedy known as Essiac tea.   Essiac tea is an effective way to introduce people to the extraordinary healing powers of herbs.  Click here to read about Rene Caisse and her herbal cancer treatment, Essiac.

Rene Caisse's booklet, I Was Canada's Cancer Nurse, illustrates how the medical establishment and government conspire to suppress effective natural remedies that do not have the high cost and harmful side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.  Rene Caisse stated that "Chemotherapy should be a criminal offense."  Essiac became so popular that 55,000 petitions were gathered to keep her cancer clinic open.  Nurse Caisse endured "nearly 50 years of persecution by those in authority, from the government to the medical profession."  Rene Caisse died in 1978 but her spirit lives on in those people whose lives have been changed by this simple herbal tea. 

"It seems so many years ago that I was a young nurse full of enthusiasm for my work and (full of) love and respect for the profession I had chosen...and the doctors I worked with.  Doctors in that day were doctors, dedicated men.  Their oath meant something to them.  Their lives were dedicated to the healing of the sick....There are still such doctors today but they are servile to the 'powers that be' and cannot do as they would wish to do.  I found this out when I tried to prove the merits of Essiac independent of the Cancer Society." -- Rene Caisse [Quote from THE ESSIAC BOOK by Mali Klein, p. 74]

Rene Caisse's Essiac tea , inspired by an "old Indian medicine man's" formula, has been used for many decades as a complementary and alternative cancer treatment and for cancer prevention.  However, today Essiac tea is not just being used by cancer patients.  Even people with diabetes and AIDS have reported positive results with Essiac tea. 

However, Essiac tea is not used just to handle serious illnesses.  Many people drink Essiac tea daily as a preventive measure to maintain good health and because it is a pleasant-tasting herbal tea (no caffeine).  Testimonials continually validate Essiac's ability to support and boost the immune system, detoxify the body and normalize body functions.  The Essiac Info section and Essiac FAQ section are the most extensive, unbiased sources for Essiac information on the internet.  We do not sell any products.
