This amazing map, which dates back to 1932, is a map consisting entirely of herbal cures and medicinal plants that were of common use among pharmacists and the general public during that time. Containing a treasure trove of natural healing information, this map is a must-have for anyone who seeks knowledge about true healing.
Dr. Marcia Angell once said, “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” A physician and longtime Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal, she is not the only physician holding a prominent position in mainstream medicine that has expressed that very fact.
The fact that pharmaceutical companies distort the truth in medicinal and medical science to continue their ability to push their products en masse. Dr. Richard Horton, Editor in Chief of The Lancet, who stated that “much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.”
Arnold Seymour Relman, Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal, has also made statements concerning corruption in medicine, “The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”
Even the map itself states ‘The Service of Pharmacy’:
“It is important that the public does not lose sight of the fact that the professions of Pharmacy, Medicine, and Dentistry, each give an essential service, which must not be impaired or destroyed by commercial trends.
The public and the professions will suffer equally if these services are allowed to deteriorate. In pharmacy, the public should understand something of the breadth of knowledge required of the pharmacist. Few people realize the extent to which plants and minerals enter into the practice of pharmacy, and how vital they are to the maintenance of the public health. It has been stated that upwards of 70 percent of all medicines employed are plant products.”
Here we are 80 years later, and our medical system is reliant almost entirely on chemical based medicines that are used to treat the symptoms rather than the cause. Medicines that come with more side effects that further attack our overall health than they do to actually aid in the treatment of anything that ails us. It is important that we share information such as this, and continue to search out natural and organic health remedies, because slowly but surely, big pharma is pushing anything truly real from our medical world and replacing it with science-fiction drugs of the future that could never truly do us any actual good.
