Why is this safe food-based dietary supplement {REDACTED}?

In fact, it has but not to feel that the reaction to the Food Movement’s Fulvic Pom has been unfairly politicized.

So, it’s no surprise that the product Fulvic Pom, made by the Food Movement Company from Chicago, was targeted by the huge multi-national when they discovered the supplement was based on anti-viral research originally published in the journal Vaccine.

The truth, however, is that Fulvic Pom is a very safe combination of organic Pomegranate juice powder and humic fulvic trace minerals. There is absolutely no reason the supplement should be banned from Amazon, even if the research on the powerful combination’s anti-viral activities were originally published in a journal on Vaccine research.

In fact, this is the kind of internet censorship, and blacklisting of products that challenge the status quo, that has many concerned. All the more reason that discerning consumers should support independent health food stores instead of corporate giants like Amazon, further consolidating their power and their ability to stifle free speech and shut down products (and points-of-view) that they deem unacceptable!

Independent health food stores, and alternative medical practitioners, across the country – and the world – carry Fulvic Pom because there is no other supplement like it. There are other antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, herbals nutraceuticals – but how many other have been proven to contain EVNCs ‘ Enveloped Virus Neutralizing Compounds.’

The truth is that Pomegranate is known to be a highly beneficial super food! Humic fulvic ‘black Earth’ minerals are a highly bioavailable source of trace nutrients and electrolytes. Together they are no available in this powerful supplement Fulvic Pom.

Dietary supplements like Fulvic Pom aren’t sold to treat or prevent disease, but broad spectrum nutrition such as this can provide a truly wide range of benefits. While medical journals may publish research on every day food medicine, such as these, the truth is that food is a powerful way to potentially change our health outcomes.

Why does the BBC publish unsubstantiated lies about natural food medicine and Covid-19?

[For best results read this article in an angry John Oliver voice]

You can probably read the frustration in my mind based on the title of this post. I’m not going to apologize, I’m just going to tell it like it is.

A friend, who happens to work in the pharmaceutical industry, recently forwarded me an article. Here’s a link to it. To be clear these are the unsubstantiated lies I was referring to in the title.

In a nutshell this piece of garbage references “snake oil salesmen” from the early 20th century (contrasted with the ‘highly reputable’ – and, ironically, mostly naturally derived – Vicks VapoRub) and then tries to tell you that companies selling natural products today are doing the same thing. It is incredibly poorly written, and acts as if there was no such things as science – just vaccines which are good and natural products which are snake oil. If there was ever an example of intellectually dishonest sensationalistic ‘journalism’ – this is it.

If you want GOOD information (that which is actually written by people who practice medicine and know what they’re talking about based on clinical practice and science) on natural medicine and Covid-19, may I direct you to The Weill Center FAQ

THE WEILL CENTER FOR INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE COVID-19 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS LIST

Here’s a prime quote from the BBC article “Forget kombucha and trendy vitamin supplements – they are nothing more than magic potions for the modern age.”

Okay well, let’s start with a reality check. There are literally thousands of studies substantiating various vitamins. I mean, the very reason that scientists DISCOVERED vitamins was because they were proven to be essential for various biological processes. So, other than the complete ambiquity of what a ‘trendy’ vitamin supplement is, this statement is completely FALSE.

And I could literally spend all day proving that statement. But, for once, let me not send you a weblink. Let me recommend a book. If you really want to learn whether or not natural medicine can benefit the immune system, as well as the entire human body, start with this book.

But just for the sake of the argument -let’s take a bottle of Kombucha, just for example (never mind the health promoting vitamins, minerals, plant derivatives etc. we could dive into) and work backwards on this statement that it is ‘snake oil’.

I’m drinking a bottle of GTs Kombucha right now, and this label indicates the drink has a probiotic strain called Baccilus coagulans, Reishi mushrooms, Chaga mushrooms, and Turkey Tail mushrooms. If the author of the BBC article is correct and this is a “magic potion” (which I am interpreting to mean – not actually a magic potion, but like children’s fairy tales something that has no assumed validity in the real world)…. there will CERTAINLY be no published scientific research on any of the ingredients in this magic potion, right?

So, I’ll do a simply pubmed search on Reishi, to begin with… and… look at this screen shot ! I mean, there are literally too many to name. The amount of research on the ingredients in this “magic potion” are just overwhelming. A number of them dealing with Cancer and chemotherapy support. That’s just ONE ingredient in ONE magic potion. I’m starting to wonder whether this BBC writer is an idiot or a liar or both.

So, I think you get the point. Suffice to say, there is plenty of good credible scientific research on Bacillus coagulans, Chaga, Turkey tail and MANY MANY other natural support mechanisms. I mean, that is literally the entire reason I started this blog.

What I find frustrating is that in the flow of information, more and more of it these days, things are not necessarily becoming clearer. With all this information flying around we should all be getting smarter by the minute! Why is that not happening?!

The answer, I believe, is that we are continually held back by people lying to us. Lying is very different than being wrong. Being wrong is okay, in fact, it is VERY GOOD as it means your critical thinking is on track and you have a belief system that allows you to identify mistakes and corrects them. So, I’m left with a question I can’t answer : why is the BBC lying to us about Covid-19 and natural medicine?
