We are sovereign beings. Each of us is born to an inalienable set of rights— independent of whether our family, society, government, etc. recognizes them. Health freedom—the right to know about, understand, and choose what goes into one’s body or affects one’s health— is not a protected right under the US Constitution and is under attack. It’s time to remember our fundamental rights, to stand up, and declare sovereignty of our own bodies.
There are many examples, in history and today, of what goes wrong when the right of health freedom is lost. From the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, to modern day medical kidnapping of minors when conventional cancer treatment is rejected, we must each know enough to powerfully say, “Never again.”
Be wary of large media outlets that are funded by organizations profiting from pharmaceuticals and supporting a one-sided view of health and medicine. Everyone needs to do their own research to find the voices they trust. Here are some independent news sources that we like:
Conventional medicine is the right fit for some people, but it is not the only medical model available. All medical systems have different strengths and weaknesses—each being best suited to the needs of different individuals, diseases, symptoms, etc. Especially if you are not meeting with success in your healthcare, consider researching methods outside of the conventional medical model, to find out whether they are right for you, such as: naturopathy, functional medicine, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, chiropractic, homeopathy, midwifery, etc.
Also note: we are building a practitioner database so that like-minded patients and practitioners can find each other.
If you are a practitioner that would like to be added to this database, check back soon for a sign up form.
Informed consent—being provided with the information needed to make an intelligent choice on healthcare for one’s self and/or one’s dependents—has been eroded over time. People in the existing medical system are often not given complete and unbiased information, including risks and benefits, alternatives, sufficient discussion needed for full understanding, etc. as needed in order to make intelligent decisions for themselves, without practitioner or system bias. This is taken to an extreme degree in scenarios where prevention or treatment are mandated. You have the right to informed consent on all medical procedures. Do not be afraid to ask questions, switch practitioners from those who do not prioritize your informed consent to those that do, give feedback to practitioners/clinics that do not prioritize your informed consent, etc.
Your voice matters. If ten people all think the same thing, but no one says it, each of them will feel that they are the only one thinking it. This moment in history calls for people to learn to embody and share what they truly believe. Through sharing our perspectives, we can learn from each other and grow together.
There is power in numbers. Build community and organize both locally and online. Seek out peers who are interested in health freedom. Use these
connections to organize political action, to build local health resources, to learn/educate, and for mutual support.
Attend council meetings and vote in local elections in your area. Consider opting for and supporting politicians that understand and prioritize health freedom. Become and stay engaged with the local issues affecting you.
Learn how your choices, and the systems you are part of, contribute to and subtract from your health. Consider what needs to change and what you need to learn to reach the level of health that you want. What’s right for every individual is different, but most of us have some big things in common: healthy food, water, and air; minimal toxic chemical and electromagnetic exposure; increased time in nature and in community; healthy sleep patterns; emotional, mental, transgenerational, and spiritual health; etc.
By virtue of existing, you are a sovereign being that has control over your own life. Believe it. Know it. Exercise the right to your bodily sovereignty in each moment, claim power over your own life, and encourage others to do the same.
