The Natural Remedy v. The Pharmaceutical Remedy
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 NaturalNews.com:
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…
BONUS #2: TODAY’S VITAL HEALTH SECRETS
• 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!

• 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!
