The Natural Remedy v. The Pharmaceutical Remedy

Jenny Thompson - HSI

John R. Houk

© February 27, 2012


I stumble upon an advertisement that was a full screen pop-up on a WND webpage. Such pop-ups usually annoy me; however curiosity got the best of me.


The pop-up takes you to a recruiting video from Health Sciences Institute (HIS). HIS is a proponent of Alternative Medicine which relies more on natural therapies rather than the marriage of medical doctors and pharmaceuticals.


Personally I am not a big fan of how pharmaceutical companies develop medicine and market them if a great demand is created for better profit margins of which many doctors have a stake in ergo they receive a legal dividend by promoting the pharmaceutical drug. There is too much pharmaceutical corruption. Too many times a drug that is needed is kept of the market because the drug might affect profitability of another drug. OR a drug is pushed through for FDA approval without the proper amount of tests that can expose sometimes fatal side effects when the project profits outweighed the potential harm to patients.


Now be careful about this advertisement. If the message raises hope for a medical problem or difficulty you are going through, be sure to do the research to verify before you trust. Sometimes another word for alternative medicine is Snake Oil. This means the properties in the Snake Oil have no effect on the human body that is promised.


On the other hand alternative medical therapies that use natural minerals, vitamins or the effects of nature (e.g. magnetism) have shown results in actual scientific trials. When trial results suggest the efficacy of an alternative medical therapy, the big money pharmaceutical companies will try to label the alternative as snake oil when the alternative therapy is as effective as the pharmaceutical drug. Why? The reason is because the alternative cuts into the profit margin.


So check out the HSI ad, but be sure to do research. And when you do your research do not just rely on a study financed by pharmaceutical company.


Here is some “about” information from the HIS website:


The Health Sciences Institute (HSI) is an independent organization, dedicated to uncovering and researching the most urgent advances in modern underground medicine.


Whether they come from a laboratory in Malaysia, a clinic in South America, or a university in Germany, our goal is to bring the treatments that work directly to the people who need them. We alert our Members to exciting breakthroughs in medicine, show them exactly where to go to learn more, and help them understand how they and their families can benefit from these powerful discoveries.

Here is a glowing evaluation from an alternative source other than HSI. The excerpt is from Mike Adams the editor of


I’d like to introduce you to an “underground” information source I subscribe to in order to stay up to date on cutting-edge nutritional information. It’s a newsletter I’ve read for years, even long before I started writing for NaturalNews, and I find it to be a wellspring of information about practical, yet powerful health solutions that simply aren’t covered in common magazines or the mainstream media. Here, I’ll review this publication and reveal why I think it’s a tremendous resource for learning about the latest nutritional breakthroughs that can literally cure serious disease while enhancing your health far beyond what you might have thought possible.

The people who produce this publication do much the same thing I do: They go to health trade shows and scout the vendors with some detective work to sort out what’s new and genuine vs. what’s just hype. I had the opportunity to sit down with these folks in California earlier this year, and we got to talking about all kinds of fascinating new discoveries in nutritional science, superfoods, product formulations, and more. They really get this stuff! And they get excited about finding new product solutions for consumers, just like I do.

Each month in their publication, they introduce one or more nutritional discoveries, complete with details on how they found them, where they come from, how they work and what they’re good for. And just like me, they don’t pull any punches when it comes to telling the truth about what these products can do for your health. I find each story to be well researched, expertly written and ripe with A-ha! realizations that make you want to thank yourself for subscribing to their newsletter in the first place. What they put together in each monthly issue is, quite simply, a masterpiece of nutritional reporting that frankly deserves some kind of award for courageous journalism (except they’ll never get a reward because they don’t conform to the limited, mainstream thinking about health and medicine — they’re truly on the leading edge, and the leading edge is never mainstream).


An exceptional health newsletter that’s worth every penny… and then some!


HSI has been publishing cutting edge health information since way before I was even thinking about writing for NaturalNews. They consistently beat almost everybody to the punch on breaking news about promising new products, and their writers have a way of cutting through the typical nutritional confusion and getting right down to what matters most, like curing a health condition, eliminating pain, and teaching you how to make your mind and body simply perform better!


It appears HSI has been around for some time and is reputable among natural alternative proponents.

BONUS #1: Secret Germ Antidote KNOCKS OUT FLU IN 8 HOURS


FEDS PREDICT KILLER FLU. Government stockpiles 44 million course antivirals as it prepares for possible pandemic.


But HSI has been preparing against this for years. We’ve uncovered dozens of powerful natural germ-killers and immune boosters, and this report details all of the best. Plus a shocking new breakthrough that could dwarf them all-developed in secret by the Russian military to treat anthrax! And that was before Bulgarian germ biologists took over the project and made it 10 to 20 times more powerful.


Stockpiles have just been made available in the U.S. In one documented case study, a sick girl saw her flu vanish in less than 8 hours! So why haven’t you heard about it? Pressure from drug advertisers? Draw your own conclusions. Big Pharma and the CDC want you to shut up and line up for your flu shot, but HSI will not be silenced. Just bear in mind that stockpiles are limited, so don’t wait one more moment…




• Age-Reversal Riddle Solved. Ever wonder why Winston Churchill, Mao Zedong and other ageless legends stayed so energetic for so long? It wasn’t genetic–it was a secret clinic, where they received a real-life “fountain of youth” formula. The stunning results were later proven in a massive series of clinical trials. But now HSI Panelist Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman has improved it enormously-with a manufacturing process so innovative they patented it. The new process allows this “youth in a bottle” formula to stay in your body even longer. An easy-to-take pill. Find out how to use it, where to get it.


• New Key to Ending Macular Degeneration. Researchers have found that a special type of microscopic algae that grows off the coast of Hawaii makes mega-vitamins look like slackers. It’s 80 times stronger than the leading antioxidant!


• Rye Revolution Ends Asthma & Hay Fever. Some patients in Australia are even throwing out their inhalers! Exciting new rye grass derivative short-circuits allergies by boosting your immune system. One doctor reports hay fever often recedes within minutes. Safe for children.


• Reverse Periodontal Disease with MOUTHWASH? You never know where the next spectacular healing breakthrough will happen! It was the “ordinary” father of a son with gum disease who came up with this shockingly powerful treatment. He was hoping it might help his son avoid gum surgery…but whoa! Not only did the gums become pink and healthy in just a few months. Bone loss was even reversed! Feedback from HSI members who try it has been wildly enthusiastic. What have you got to lose?

18 thoughts on “The Natural Remedy v. The Pharmaceutical Remedy”

  1. Well my Christian sisters and brothers, why don’t you just post a list of these deadly pharmaceuticals and a list of the 10 most beneficial natural cures? Is it because you actually worship money like all the hypocrites? I do not have time to sit through a half hour message only to discover that in the end you are still left relatively in the dark, gasping for air and chomping at a carrot on a string. This is not Christian behavior. No doubt you will not respond to this message as it is too revealing. In closing I wish to say; “May Christ Bless all who Truly Love Him and do His Will”.


    1. Timothy was posted as information not as advocacy. I did not encourage the purchase of the product or subscription. It is good to know there are alternatives to pharmaceutical medicines that often have side effects that may be unpleasant. So … how is that unChristian behavior?

      1. It didn’t take very much research for me to find out that HSI and Jenny Thomson were liars with an agenda to get everyone to buy their “natural” products. They make ridiculous claims with no scientific proof. Claims that some herb cures almost every cancer with no side effects and another completely relieves arthritis pain in minutes with no side effects. You’ll be looking an awfully long time if you hope you’ll see the results of clinical studies about any of their claims. Without clinical studies there is no proof and they certainly can’t say their claims are backed by science because science demands double-blind clinical studies in order to determine the efficacy of any medicine. The only thing you said right is that sometimes another term for alternative medicine is snake oil. Jenny Thomson and HSI sell snake oil and by reproducing their lies for their readers you do indeed appear to be promoting this organization. By the way, the idea that there is a vast conspiracy between the U.S. government and the pharmaceutical industry to keep real cures for terrible diseases like cancer is ludicrous, unfounded and absolutely unproven. Don’t be so gullible. The people of HSI may believe their own lies, but that doesn’t make them anything less than lies.

  2. I watched the video, but it bothered me that Jenny pronounced words with “st” as if they were “sht” an educated, articulate person would not do that.


  3. Well…
    Eat well. Be well 🙂

    > Daniel (to the guard): 12 Please, do us a favor. Put us, your servants, to the test for the next 10 days. Give us a vegetarian diet and water. 13 When the time is up, you can see for yourself our condition and compare it to the condition of the other young men who are eating from the king’s table. Then, after you have seen what has happened, do whatever you think is best with us, your servants.

    Daniel and his companions ask for a diet consistent with God’s instructions to His covenant people: vegetables and grains, without the rich cuts of meat that are normally a staple of those who eat at the king’s table. They also want to exclude any wines or mead because they intend to avoid any unnecessary entanglements with Babylonian culture. Most of those meats and wines have been offered to the Babylonian gods, and Daniel wants no part of that. Daniel and his exiled friends may have to live in Babylon, but they don’t have to be absorbed into the culture. Every bite of every meal reminds them that they are different.

    14 So the guard agreed to do as Daniel requested. He tested them on a diet of only vegetables, grains, and water for 10 days. 15 When the 10 days were up, he looked them over and noticed that Daniel and his friends were better off than all the young men eating from the king’s best foods. They looked healthy and well nourished, 16 so the guard continued to hold back their royal rations and replaced them with a strictly vegetarian diet. 17 Through all of this, God conferred upon these 4 young men superior abilities in literature, language, and wisdom. God had given Daniel an additional gift, too: the ability to interpret visions and dreams. <


  4. I watched your disgusting ad about Hillary Clinton. I realize you are supposed to be a Christian but your ad is evil, dishonest and at times outright lies. You should check your facts. In my opinion, you take all credibility away from your product. If you have a good product then you shouldn’t have to totally exaggerate and scare people with your questionable numbers of people dying every five minutes. That is a sleazy way to try and get people to buy your product. The minute you had something to sell I knew I would never consider ever doing business with you or the Institute if that is the way you have to sell a product. You have no integrity or scruples and the lie about anyone trying to take this information off the internet I know is a lie because I saw this same ad months ago plus if this was a miracle pill you wouldn’t have to
    stoop to these tactics. I don’t believe anything you say because of this tacky disgusting ad. Shame on you for using your republican politics and scare tactics to do something so anti-Christian.


    1. Hmm…. Jenny post from 2012 has nothing to do with Hillary so I am uncertain what or which anti-Hillary ad you are referring to. Nevertheless, the facts are these: Hillary is a documented liar. That means ANYTHING to do with Hillary speaks is undoubtedly a self-serving lie to protect herself from angering gullible voters perhaps like you.

      So I advise you to check YOUR facts! She is an ungodly elitist that supports baby-killing as if women have more of a right to choose than a human life has a right to live. She supports the Obama Leftist transformation of America and part of that agenda is to eliminate Christian morality more than the Dem Party and actives judges have done so already. Regardless of what Hillary may say of herself, she is very anti-Christian, hence needs exposed!

  5. I completely agree with the posting above. HSI is a mouthpiece or the extreme right wing and has nothing to do with their stated objective. Within the first week of subscribing to HSI I requested a refund and even after repeated inquiries have never received a single response. HSI is a sham and should be revealed for what it truly is.


    1. Complaining about is legit. If the corruption is as you claim, HSI needs to be exposed pertaining to their products. Bob note I wrote this about HSI:

      Now be careful about this advertisement. If the message raises hope for a medical problem or difficulty you are going through, be sure to do the research to verify before you trust. Sometimes another word for alternative medicine is Snake Oil. This means the properties in the Snake Oil have no effect on the human body that is promised.

      As to Hillary, she is an evil incompetent administrator who pretends to be pro-woman yet enables her adulterer womanizing husband by blaming every single one of Bill’s trysts and rapes on the female victims.

  6. I’d like to add something. Rema Marketing sends me email.

    – Beautiful Revelations brings you face to face with the doctors, nutritionists and researchers who are risking reputation and funding to bring hope to millions. There is no need to suffer in ignorance or silence when the truth is available.

    One of the most horrific manifestations of the global elite new world order is a desire to ensure that the entire population of the earth is completely dependant on the big drug cartels for medications even if this means hiding from the public the fact that there are natural cures for many of the most terrible diseases known to humans. –

    “Billions Being Spent to Suppress The Truth!”

    – Is there really a conspiracy to withhold information that could positively impact the life of billions of people on the face of this planet who are suffering from life impacting diseases? Could this really, honestly, be a fact? Are multi-billion dollar corporations that evil, that they would simply rather billions suffer than be fully healed by the release of new treatments that fully cure disease? Or is this accusation about the medical establishment just typical conspiracy theory junk? –

    1. I am pro-Trump because he at least said some smart campaign promises about immigration, vetting reliability of Muslim refugees from ISIS invested war zones, negotiating better treaties pertaining to the economy and more. The alternative is Crooked Hillary whose biggest accomplishment is demonstrating that the FBI is in her pocket. Failures as Secretary of State are the lies and coverups surrounding Benghazi, pay to play, private email server to hide corruption while simultaneously possessing various levels of digital classified documents that were a prey for any Tom, Dick & Harry hacker able to break unsecured drivers.
