Eight years ago, maybe closer to nine, I got free from the disease that had been an exhausting and depressing challenge for over 47 years. It felt like a miracle. And I was so excited about it that I wanted to share it with other people who also suffered from psoriasis. I thought everyone would be as excited as we were about this simple protocol.
I thought the largest foundation for psoriasis in the U.S. would be delighted with this discovery by three people who had absolutely no idea what they were doing and had no science to back them up. I thought my dermatologist would be on board to recommend this to other patients.
To put it bluntly, I was really naive.
I came to understand that not everyone was looking for something that worked. These companies didn’t seem to want a cure for anything. They just wanted a drug that you had to take for the rest of your life. Even on the discussion board I came to realize that there were forces I hadn’t realized existed—people who were actually intentionally trolling anyone who had a legitimate alternative to prescription drugs. They were basically suppressing information.
Fast forward to now. We’ve just been through three really tough years of Covid—our world turned upside down and those same forces have played a big part in the suffering of millions of people around the globe. And once again I was naive.
I have made a point of staying away from politics and issues not related to psoriasis on the website and FB page. But I’m just having a really hard time keeping my mouth shut about what has gone on in the past few years.
If you’ve had your head buried in the sand (as I did) stop reading now because I’m going to go on a bit of a rant and you may not like it.
See, there was this one person that I refused to listen to because of his reputation as a bit of a whack job and a conspiracy theorist and a purveyor of misinformation. I argued against him without ever listening to or reading a single word of what he had to say. But his name started popping up fairly regularly when he threw his hat in to the ring as a candidate for president of the United States.
So, I took the time to listen to him (my arms crossed and my mind still closed) and I came to the realization that I was dead wrong about this man. And the most distressing part was watching his interviews being removed. Shut down by essentially the same people who suppressed new information about psoriasis that we were trying to get out on the discussion board—the pharmaceutical companies—doctors—the mainstream media.
It has taken eight years for vitamin D to get talked about, at least a little, in the media. Why is that? I’ve read many articles and studies that show the efficacy of this vitamin/hormone. Yet the information shows up and then disappears. Why? Who risks the most from information about vitamin D (an inexpensive and amazingly versatile supplement) getting out?
The answer is the pharmaceutical companies. A supplement cannot be patented, which means there’s no money in it. And much of the media that we watch or listen to every day is beholden to these companies because the companies sponsor their shows. It’s called a conflict of interest. How can we believe that the ‘news’ is valid if huge amounts of money are being pumped in by people who have a vested interest in certain outcomes? We can’t.
When I got threatened with a lawsuit by the company that runs the psoriasis foundation discussion board (which shall not be named) I was really afraid. And for good reason. They don’t care if they lose a court case—they just appeal and appeal until they have financially gutted their target. About this, I was not naive. I folded.
And although they dropped the court case—they promised they would not have me banned for life from the discussion board (they lied, I am permanently banned) and they promised that they would not remove a year’s worth of work on this discussion board (they lied again—it was all removed). This is how they operate.
And this is how they are trying to destroy the reputation of a man who has dedicated 30 years of his life as an environmental lawyer–helping people who have been damaged by environmental toxins and vaccination issues. And, no, he is not the whack job that they keep saying. Nor is he an anti-vaxer. And more and more people are listening to him. He even mentions vitamin D in several of his interviews. His name is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
I was using vitamin D when I got Covid and it was relatively mild and I’m old. But I did end up in an ambulance (first time ever) after my second shot in the arm. So, I have no excuse for getting things wrong. I knew that the pharmaceutical companies were bad news and as I have said in the past, if I was a CEO of a large pharmaceutical company I would be dropping to my knees every night and praying that there’s no such thing as Karma.
If you want a really good education about pharmaceuticals I suggest you have a listen to what Mr. Kennedy has to say. Not the sound bites and click bait titles and insults by the mainstream media but a two or three hour serious discussion. It’s shocking. But I’m glad I did it. I learned a lot. And I hope, in the future, that I have the decency to listen to someone before making up my mind. I hope you do too.
So, as Charlie would say “Take care…. and all that!”
And as Lucky and I would say “May happiness be your default setting!”
And as Martin Luther-King said “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
