NC to vote April 14 on bill making homeopathy a felony: Call your state reps

North Carolina Citizens for Healthcare Freedom

UPDATES continually provided here.

SB 31, a bill that will make felons out of alternative health care practitioners, breezed through the House Judiciary Committee on March 31 in the North Carolina Legislature. The vote on the bill has now been postponed to Thursday, April 14th. The only chance to stop it is for people to personally CALL their NC House Representative and voice their opposition stating why they oppose this bill.

You can find your state rep’s name and contact info here.

Talking Points:

I urge you to consider S31 as written is bad legislation and not in the interest of the citizens of North Carolina. It would affect two very different groups of people:

Group 1: Persons who perform licensed kinds of activities without a license (see prohibited acts in 2009 H842) and they must be held accountable.

Group 2: Alternative health care practitioners who offer unlicensed healing modalities that have a safe history. These should be allowed to continue to do so as long as they provide appropriate disclosures (see 2009 H842 disclosures below).

Although H 842 from the 2009 session is not active, please consider the intent and involvement of its many sponsors. I would urge you to add this language to S31. Similar health freedom laws exist in eight states: Idaho, Oklahoma, Minnesota, California, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Arizona, and New Mexico.

According to a nationwide government survey released in December 2008, approximately 38 percent of U.S. adults aged 18 years and over and approximately 12 percent of children use some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). CAM is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not generally considered part of conventional medicine.

I would appreciate your careful consideration of this matter. There are many holistic practitioners in North Carolina who do no harm and whom you would put out of business with this bill. There are many NC citizens who rely on alternative healing modalities. Citizens want more healthcare options whether or not they have health insurance, and every citizen has the right to choose the path of his/her own healing.

Here’s the text of the bill:

GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA
SESSION 2011

SENATE BILL 31
Judiciary I Committee Substitute Adopted 3/3/11
Short Title: Clarify Penalty Unauth. Practice of Medicine. (Public)

A BILL TO BE ENTITLED

AN ACT TO CLARIFY THE PENALTY FOR THE UNAUTHORIZED PRACTICE OF MEDICINE.

The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:

Ҥ 90-18. Practicing without license; penalties.

(a) No person shall perform any act constituting the practice of medicine or surgery, as defined in this Article, or any of the branches thereof, unless the person shall have been first licensed and registered so to do in the manner provided in this Article. Any person who practices medicine or surgery without being duly licensed and registered, as provided in this Article, shall not be allowed to maintain any action to collect any fee for such services. The person so practicing without being duly licensed and registered shall be guilty of a Class I felony, except that any person who has a license or approval under this Article that is inactive due solely to the failure to complete annual registration in a timely fashion as required by this Article or any person who is licensed, registered, and practicing under any other Article of this Chapter shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.”

  1. Never mind what people want for themselves. The Medical-Drug CORPORATE COMBINE is going to control everybody!

    Not-Sees RULE!

  2. I’m not sure I understand the concern. You don’t think there should be a formal regulatory system set up that licenses people for the ‘medicine’ they are practicing, from massage to herbs?

  3. Licensing is how we ended up with the medical monopoly we have today that controls itself (AMA, HHS and FDA), makes its own laws and outlaws everyone else. They just sit back on their license and treat you into oblivion with one drug after another. Then if the drugs stop working they move to cut, burn and poison.

    As a result of this licensing modern medicine has not cured one disease in over a half century. They have fed the public just the information they want you to understand and no more. It makes the field of medicine one dimensional restricting our healing options down to one groups opinion of what medicine is.

    The majority of Naturopathic, Ayurvedic, Chinese Medicine, Homeopathic and Tribal medicine doctors I know got in this field not because they saw an opportunity. Because the opportunities are far outweighed by the legal mine field you walk through every day by telling the truth. These doctors got into Natural medicine mainly because they cured a disease they had through nature and then saw the truth and would not be silenced.

    This is frightening. Allopathic medicine has not addressed all our needs. Thankfully, I don’t need any doctors at this point of my life, but I certainly want the freedom to choose whomever I want to see. I hope the people of N. Carolina will feel the same way.

  5. Two comments:

    1.) If you know anything about Codex Alimentarius, this is, on its face, terrifying! If you don’t know what Codex is, watch the 9 video series starting at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2D4-noTiCg

    2.) It would be instructive to know how “practice of medicine or surgery” is “defined in this Article”.

  6. BOHICA: If you are not familiar with this abstruse acronym? Bend Over, Here It Comes Again.
    I was an allopath for 36 years but was never adverse to alternative therapy. The AMA and the rest of the ‘alpha abetters ‘ (ACLU, NAACP, LARASA, et al) have never represented their members. Recall the AMA supported Obama’s ‘StealthCare’.
    I practiced conventional general medicine and smatterings of homeopathy, osteopathy, and shiatsu. I never honored the AMA’s ivory tower of Shinar. However, I neglected the greatest skill of all. It is called PRAYER.
    Chauncey Crandall, MD is a cardiac surgeon in Florida. He has written a marvelous little book titled ‘Raising the Dead’. This humble man administers to his charges with both artistic skill and assiduous prayer to our Creator.
    In this secular political milieu, the modern day Lukes may be punished for attending to the spiritual needs of their patients. I anticipate this egregious administration will forbid practitioners the ilk of Chauncey Crandall, When that day comes, the Lord will weep. On that day, He will act (Malachi 4). Cervantes said, ‘God will tolerate evil for only a little time’. It is His time, not ours

  7. Any word on what happened last night?

  8. I’m still not seeing any reasonable response detailing why there shouldn’t be regulations on those who practice medicine. Are you saying you are willing to accept all repercussions from a visit to a ‘doctor’ that doesn’t go well? Or would you blame the government for not regulating the guy who ‘heals’ you in a negative way?

  9. Looks like they will attack health food stores next. Let’s say you go to local health food store to ask for something to fix low iron; & the person behind counter points to the black strap molasses’s. The idiot politicians would knee jerk & put the clerk in jail for practicing homeopathy.

    This law must me stopped or it will spread to other states.

  10. A wise man once said, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” This applied then and it applys more so today!
    When the truth of the matter is, illness and ailments are perpetrated by our own aging process and dealing with everyday disappointments.
    Bad or deteriorated cells reproducing themselves and the mounting pressures of everyday life effecting our emotions gives opportunity for legislatures, like those in the NC roundhouse, to enact laws under the pressure of industry lobbyists. Industries that know this to be a fact but prefer to control and keep the public disinformed.
    Here are two little known organizations that are bringing forth the tools that offer the population a real opportunity to heal themselves under the inalienable rights given to us by our constitution.
    1. http://www.toggleit.com Alpha Omega Therapeutics has discovered how to reverse the negative emotions that big business creates in us for its’ bottom line and is reporting outstanding results across the ailment board.
    2. http://www.bwoa.teamasea.com ASEA has discovered how to stabilize Redox Signaling molecules outside the human body for the first time in the history of mankind and holds US patents.
    When the population learns about and takes advantage of these two offerings, it won’t matter how thick the law book gets, as it will be tossed aside and collect dust, as it probably should.
    The freedom of the mind .. is the beginning of all freedoms.

  11. What will these morons think of next. They want people sick at all costs. Just like the people who tried to shut down Edgar Cayce, but in secret came with sick family members that their “experts” had no clue about. The Clueless Govt.

  12. The reason why is profit for money and the love of money.

    A solution can be found at the http://WWW.TheVenusProject.com and http://www.ZeitgeistMovingForward.com a movie on the matter.
