Dear National Women’s Health Network,
I have been a loyal supporter and contributor to your organization since 1983. Unfortunately, I am withdrawing my support from your organization after discovering that Dr. Fugh-Berman has testified against homeopathy and homeopathic remedies at the FDA hearing today.
Homeopathy has been a life-saver for my entire family and for many friends — as I’m sure it has been for many of your health conscious contributors. It got me through menopause like a breeze (no need for hormones of any kind or any other supplement), has cured flus, bronchitis, arthritis, depression, asthma, food poisoning, and most amazingly — cured my son of autism. As a result, I left a career as a researcher in computer science to write a book about homeopathy and to promote it to the general public (www.impossiblecure.com).
Even Dr. Fugh-Berman must be aware of the remarkable historic legacy of homeopathy in this country, its successes in treating epidemics of the 1800s, the fact that it has been used with success worldwide for over 200 years, and the longstanding aim of allopathic medicine to kill it and the competition it represents.
By working to remove public access to this remarkably effective, safe, and cost-effective medical alternative, Dr. Fugh-Berman has played right into the never-ending quest for dominance by Big Pharma. This is not something I expect from one of the key players of the National Women’s Health Network, which has (in general) bucked conventional medical wisdom to promote women’s health.
Please remove me from your mailing and donor list. Please note that I will also be posting this letter to my social networks.
