Nearly one in four workers require a government-issued license to do their job.
License defined: permission granted by an authority (as of a government or a business) to do some act or transaction which would be unlawful without such permission.
A 2022 Institute of Justice study identified more than 2,700 licenses across the 50 states and the District of Columbia. A review of occupational licenses found that, for lower and moderate income occupations – hair stylists, massage therapists, preschool teachers – licensing was overly burdensome and irrational. The license benefits providers more than consumers. Since 2016, The Wisconsin Institute for Justice reports:
Onerous occupational licensing laws that force people to undergo thousands of hours of often redundant and gratuitous training to perform jobs like auctioneering, tree trimming, and hair styling. …licensing laws are the result of higher-skilled professionals seeking to protect their market share at the consumers’ expense.
The good news since 2017 is states have eliminated more licenses than they have created.
The Medical License Landscape
Between 1875 and 1900, conventional medicine began passing license laws that granted national associations, such as The American Medical Association, (AMA), the right to oversee and regulate the practice of medicine, as well as collect heavy license fees. Government agencies, such as the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), do not apply regulations to treatment regimens or practices, only to products.
Conventional medicine is a for-profit global industry. In 2021, the top 3 drug companies: Novartis, Pfizer and J&J made, $24 billion, $22 billion, and $21 billion, respectively. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is supposed to oversee the National Vaccine Program. But who is overseeing the DHHS when it withholds vaccine injury data as it rolls out its Vaccine Confidence Plan?
With disease rates rising over the last century, COVID vaccine injury claims rising, and the 2023 journal Lancet showing death rates rising after COVID shots, many professionals from diverse fields are pleading to go back to traditional medicine used by indigenous medicine physicians.
Meanwhile, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the FDA, both, recommend the shots for babies and anyone over six months old. The FDA also recommends COVID shots for pregnant women – even though The World Health Organization issued a Jan. 26, 2021 statement recommending that pregnant women should not be vaccinated with Moderna’s COVID-19 mRNA vaccine citing a lack of data in pregnancy.
A cartel is an association of manufacturers or suppliers with the purpose of maintaining prices at a high level and restricting competition.
According to James Thorp, MD, author of a February 2022 study, Patient Betrayal, a medical cartel pushes the false narrative that the experimental COVID-19 therapy is safe and effective in pregnancy. In an April 2023 interview he says, “We have broken all the rules, The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, The American Board of Medical Specialties, The American Board of Internal Medicine, The Federation of State Medical Boards, The American College of OBGYN, The Society for Maternal and Fetal medicine, the AMA…”
We especially, as obstetricians in maternal fetal medicine, have always been guided by that principle and that sacred, longstanding six-millenia golden rule of pregnancy… you never ever use an investigational drug, a new substance and a new drug, a new vaccine even, even if there’s a potential benefit. You don’t ever use a new substance in pregnancy. So we have broken all the rules. I’ve seen significant increases in problems, all types of problems, before pregnancy, extraordinarily abnormal menstrual periods, as well as during miscarriage during pregnancy. A lot of miscarriages in the first part of the pregnancy and fetal losses after 20 weeks. – Dr. James Thorp, April 2023, Shocking and Escalating COVID Vaccine Side Effects in Pregnant Women interview
At the same time, licensed medical doctors, under the direction of the American Medical Association, continue a crusade to criminalize unlicensed holistic practitioners for ‘practicing medicine without a license.’ Similarly, licensed naturopathic practitioners act like their medical counterparts, by enforcing licensure.
The license is a money-making business. In a 2016 study by the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL)
licensing laws raise prices for consumers by $1.93 billion each year and result in roughly 31,000 fewer jobs.
How A License Is Like A Vaccine
While licensed doctors agree to government-instituted medical mandates in order to hold a job, they agree to a system that legislates choice. As licensed medicine promotes conformity with a one-size-fits-all solution, humanity risks devolution.
In failing to evolve itself, the medical system applies a license like a vaccine:
Where a license is used as a shield to protect the medical industry, a vaccine is a shield that provides legal immunity to vaccine makers against lawsuits from vaccine damage.
Where a license replaces inherent rights with acquired rights and privileges, a vaccine usurps innate immunity for acquired immunity.
Where a license reflects a transfer of power from a free market (self-regulation) to a controlled-market (state-regulation), a vaccine reflects a transfer of power from self-healing to disease management.
Where a license is legal permission from an authority (i.e. State government, medical board) to do something that would otherwise be deemed unlawful, a vaccine is legal permission to inject toxins that would otherwise be deemed illegal to ingest.
Where the license raises costs to consumers, consumers also pay the costs of vaccines.
Where a license is based on the theory of “standard of care,” a vaccine is based on the standard of “The Germ Theory of Disease.”
If vaccines work so well, then what do the vaccinated fear from the unvaccinated?
What Does Licensed Medicine Have To Fear?
Under the scope of the Medical Practice Act, a medical school graduate must first acquire a license before he or she can legally practice and use the title “MD,” “DO, “DC, “physician,” or “doctor.”
Licensed allopathic medicine allows a doctor to prescribe, treat, diagnose, cure, and prevent in connection with disease, injury and mental or physical condition.
Licensed medicine discourages alternative, or natural options. In keeping doctors busy, the license limits free thinking and professional growth, while also threatening doctors for suggesting holistic healing alternatives since the doctor is liable under threat of malpractice.
For instance, the Georgia Composite Medical Board revoked the license of Susan Kolb, M.D., after concluding that she performed unnecessary procedures. According to the 2022 court decision, as one liability, Kolb prescribed a “detoxification” process to her patients, although such a process is “absolutely not” a treatment for BII.
The license and board certification can be revoked, and physician subject to harsh disciplinary actions, if the medical board deems a doctor is “spreading misinformation (such as with COVID-19).” In his paper, Dr. James Thorp states:
A term of deception crafted by various cartel entities “misinformation” is used to label anything that would tend to create COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy. In other words, “misinformation” is used to discredit alternative views and seeks to prevent honest and truthful communication with a patient about the experimental gene therapy’s known and very real dangers.
Licensed medicine authorizes a doctor to regulate your body using standard medical protocols and bill you according to standard medical codes.
Licensed medicine means the State may claim ownership of your body. Parents can be blindsided by “medical kidnap” of children if officials determine you to be incompetent.
If the license works so well, what do licensed doctors fear from unlicensed healers?
Holistic Medicine Is Not Licensed Medicine
Holistic practitioners do not attend medical school. They do not practice licensed medicine. They do not prescribe, treat, or diagnose. They do not puncture the skin, and do not cut into the body. They do not suggest medical alternatives. They do not use standard medical protocols or bill using standard medical codes.
Holistic healers work with Nature’s tools such as herbs, sunshine, clean water, real food. They do not treat symptoms with FDA-approved synthetic drugs, but look for the cause and allow the body to heal itself. The holistic healer sees each individual as pure potential and unique in body, mind, and spirit. Individuality over Uniformity.
Both allopathic and holistic medicine are healing modalities on a spectrum of choice. Where allopathic medicine ends, holistic medicine begins. One does not encroach upon the other. One is an apple, the other an orange.
As has been the case since 1900, the practice of licensed medicine co-exists alongside unlicensed medicine because choice exists. One cannot legislate choice for another. As history shows, rulers do not eliminate choice through unjust laws. They only drive it underground.
In a free society, everyone has the right to give advice and the right to choose advice from allopaths, osteopaths, naturopaths, homeopaths, herbalists, and chiropractors.
Right To Be Left Alone
The right of privacy is a Constitutional right that means the right to personal autonomy, or the right to choose whether or not to engage in certain acts or have certain experiences. The right to privacy is written in the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution.
The amendments to the Constitution include a general right to be left alone and to be protected from governmental interference. It also includes the freedom of the individual to make fundamental choices involving the individual, his or her family, and relationships with others, except where such choices prove to be harmful to others and possibly oneself.
Unfortunately, an absolute right to choose any “unorthodox” treatment has not always held up in court, with one exception:
[W]e see no reason why a patient should not be allowed to make an informed decision to go outside currently approved medical methods in search of an unconventional treatment. While a patient should be encouraged to exercise care for his own safety, we believe that an informed decision to avoid surgery and conventional chemotherapy is within the patient’s right “to determine what shall be done with his own body.
How to Preserve Choice?
According to a 2020 report, Americans spend $30 billion annually, out-of-pocket, on products and services ranging from nutritional supplements to yoga and chiropractic care. However, this number may be incorrect since it is lower than a 2009 survey, citing $34 billion spent by consumers out-of-pocket.
Why would the mainstream not report updated numbers, especially when a 2019 article states that more people are seeking natural alternatives to medications? Could it be related to a Forbes magazine report from 2019 showing that medical healthcare system waste hit $935 billion a year.
Consumers are not stupid. Support for more traditional medicines goes back to March 2000 when the Journal of Family Practice showed demand for more alternative healing options. Four reasons emerged as the basis for this: 1) Holism (whole person approach), 2) Empowerment, 3) Access, and 4) Legitimization. 1
The ability to heal is inherent. Self-healing is a birthright and thus, requires no license. Using free-will, each individual authorizes any practice over his own body, his private property, through consent or the withdrawal of consent.
People who seek to preserve choice and legitimize holistic medicine must stand up and speak out for that right. Each is responsible for her own body and her own health. When it comes to choice, the only freedom you have is the freedom you defend.
By legislating the choice to heal, do legislators practice medicine without a license?
