    Health Canada public servants… will be going to jail for crimes against humanity very soon. WE THE PEOPLE will take you down….for approving and unleashing aspartame on a trusting Canadian population, one of many diabolical chemical abominations for which you will all pay! Believe it.

    Big pharma behind this you can guarantee it!

    There are a lot of products that are natural that work better than pharma but our cooked government doesn’t profit from those. Also, once the next pandemic comes they can make sure you have no way to help yourself without their pharmaceuticals. They want people sick and reliant. Soon you won’t have access to vitamin D, or C. You won’t have access to any alternatives. Just like their censorship bills. Anyone who believes this is about public health is falling for the propaganda. If it’s about health why are they legalizing hard drugs? Why are alcohol and cigarettes available to buy? A controversial, un tested jab? Wake up before your children pay the price. CBC, you should be ashamed.

    People should research the history between pharmaceutical vs naturalist.

    About time. Most of these so-called natural "remedies" are utter rubbish with no demonstrable efficacy whatsoever.

    When did smoking tobacco did help somebody life?
    When did getting drunk did help somebody life?
    TELL ME!!!
    I end up taking medicines for the side effect of my medicines (12) and a bill three foot long because I can’t grow almost for free something who can solve in one shot all of these symptom.

    Watch at 0:50 products that make a health claim. You mean like Big Pharma death pills? Look at the long list of interactions, adverse reactions that get people hospitalized, kill people etc. When is the science of these Big Pharma pills/medicines going to be applied? Face it…Big Pharma only cares about profit and they don’t want anything that can help you apart from their insanely priced "medicine".

    I cured my own strep throat with Echinacea Goldenseal, Bee Propolis and Garlic capsules. I am perfectly fine. Last time I had a problem I took antibiotics for it like 10 years ago I was having burning diarrhea for a week. I have also done Kidney cleans and Liver cleanse and feel awesome. I have never had an adverse reaction from NHPs. Hands off Dr. Death Pharma.

    the reason theyre able to sell natural cures is because its fucking natural. and 100x easier for your body to use than chemical shit they want you to use which has shit loads of negative side effects. this world is fucked

    Adults can’t smoke pot recreationally, but hey, homeopathy is totally legit for adults, is that right Rona Ambrose? More proof that this minister of health wouldn’t know what evidence was if it hit her in the face.

    Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I’ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. i read people"s testimonies online on how they were cured of
    by DR.IYAYI herbal home, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything.
    I was diagnosed with chronic pain for the past 7 years but DR.IYAYI cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunty and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from chronic pain and they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. Contact email. *driyayi9@***

    The Big Pharmakeia are determined that only there full of side effects and deadly drugs reach the consumer. Natural remedies that have been safe for eons are no longer safe according to the bribed up officials

  12. Harvey Holloway on August 16, 2023 at 3:45 pm

    This is total corruption. First it is almost impossible to get a herbal product licensed as it would interfere with drug based corporate profits. That is the reason. Second drugs with terrible side effects are licensed with almost no research are rubber stamped. Third, no herbs are listed as killing any one but drugs do, and yet are propped up by governments. The system is totally hypocritical.

  13. FourOne Alpha on August 16, 2023 at 3:48 pm

    I find it laughable that people buy homeopathic BS.

  14. jconearth on August 16, 2023 at 3:53 pm

    while i too believe any and all products natural or otherwise should have some science behind the marketing, all you sheep that think ‘Health’ Canada is a legit health voice are living in a fog – HC approves BIG PHARMA SHIT EVERY DAY that the manufacturers only ‘science’ is almost always their own ‘conflict of interest ‘studies ‘ ; AND there are numberless deaths and illnesses from their ‘approved ‘ crap all the time – not to mention almost all sitting HC board members have stocks in Big Pharma – wake up and smell the stink from ‘Health and Welfare Canada’ as well as the comparatively few natural bad apple products !

    I was diagnosed of syphilis and I have been suffering from the ailment for over 15 years now and I contacted Dr Oko-oboh on YouTube and he replied my mail after two days he told me everything will be fine via .
    My previous result I tested and got treatment was THA 1:67 but now am completely negative at both.
