For too long now, people have been fooled by government, FDA & AMA into believing that the onslaught of "modern medicine" is in our best interest. They are lying! Ignorant yes, but of their choosing. They are arrogant self serving liars! Allowing the high levels of hormones, steroids, preservatives, food colourings, Pesticides and herbicides into our food, no wonder disease is epidemic! Think of money, power, greed, and worse.....Control over YOU, they exert, at our expense! (and I'm only talking food here)!
Today's Allopath (conventional doctor) certainly has his/her place as a facilitator, but it's not the place he thinks it is. A conventional doctor is certainly the person to rush to in a case of an emergency; whether it be a broken limb, accident, birthing complications etc. Chemical medicine's are so powerful, they can alleviate tremendous pain almost immediately by blocking the appropriate nerves to the brain alerting us to that pain. Cancer growths can be cut away from our bodies in a matter of minutes, stopping it from spreading any further. So yes doctors can be, and are life savers.
They're still businessmen. They don't want us to know the real way to look after our general health...preventative health. They still only treat symptoms, not causes. And that's because they're not trained to understand the body as a whole.
According to the summaries from the united states poison control centres: between 1983 to 1990 there has been one recorded death from overdosing using a nutritional supplement. On the other hand; properly prescribed medical drugs cause about 13,000 per year, or approximately 356 senseless, avoidable deaths per day! Naturally, although knowing this, the american FDA looks the other way. Disease and death is big business afterall.
Knowledge is our first defense. Taking responsibility for our lives also contributes to a healthy way of living. It helps to provides us with quality, as well as quantity in everything we do.

The information and suggestions contained within this web site are not intended to take the place of diagnosis and treatment by a qualified healer. Malachite Witch does not accept responsibility for any adverse effects which arise from self-medication. Any persistent condition should always be referred to a medical herbalist or healer, and all medicines, including herbs, should be avoided during pregnancy unless prescribed by a healer and/or herbalist.
It is important to choose a qualified healer who is a member of a professional organisation. Just because herbs are 'natural', it does not mean that they are safe for anyone to self diagnose and use. Only a trained healer will be fully aware of potential adverse effects and herb-drug interactions, and will be able to recognise those circumstances in which herbs may not be the most appropriate treatment.
It is my opinion that through conversation and exchange of knowledge...in other words communication, that we can help, and be helped. There are a lot of contributors to this section who deserve recognition and praise for their dedication in helping us all find the right answers to our health problems. I for one, thank you.
Note: Do you know the difference between "Natural" and "Organic"? An Apple is natural, but if its been sprayed with chemicals, it's not organic, which in turn, can mean that it is still a health risk. Eating organic food doesn't necessarily mean giving up your favourite cut of steak, it just means not eating one that's full of chemicals!
