NIH has an official center for ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE.
The NIH National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health exists.
This is their job: "NCCIH’s Funding Priorities and Research Focus
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds and conducts research to help answer important scientific and public health questions about complementary health approaches. NCCIH works to determine what is promising, what helps and why, what doesn’t work, and what is safe."
Have they answered your questions about safety and efficacy of natural health alternatives?
All those "untested" natural health things that we are all discouraged from doing actually have had a place to be researched for DECADES, and they have done both jack and squat for us.
They even have a PLAN that they developed for the years 2016 to 2020.
Sounds like the kind of place that would be PERFECT to research the impact that high dose IV Vitamin C would have on viruses doesn't it. Corona-virus 2019 for example. And all kinds of viruses, right? Here's what they say about effective natural treatment for colds:
"Complementary approaches that have shown some promise include oral zinc products, rinsing the nose and sinuses (with a neti pot or other device), honey (as a nighttime cough remedy for children), vitamin C (for people under severe physical stress), probiotics, and meditation."
Sounds interesting, right? So why are they not at the press conferences next to the president? Putting out detailed recommendations for doctors on the front line? They have a budget of $151M per year.
Why are they not in high gear repeating the Chinese doctors reports of 50,000 units of IV Vitamin C turning CV cases around in real time?
Ever heard of Helene Langevin, M.D.? Me neither.
Via her twitter account she has a puppy cam pinned to the top of her feed, and just RTs NIH, HHS and CDC tweets. But she does take the time to let us know that, "Per the
@NIH_NCCIH #ColloidalSilver fact sheet, “Silver has no known function or benefits in the body when taken by mouth.”
Why do they only have 68 staff members? Can I apply for a job? https://nccih.nih.gov/about
Here are their thoughts on autism:
- No cure has been found for ASD. However, a variety of therapies, including behavioral management therapy and physical therapy, may help.
- Early intervention can greatly improve a child’s development.
- Intensive behavioral therapy for toddlers or preschool children with ASD can improve their cognitive and language skills, research shows.
- Also, there are medications that help some people with ASD function better.
- There’s very little high quality research on complementary health approaches for ASD.
- There’s no scientific evidence that secretin (a gastrointestinal hormone), hyperbaric oxygen, chelation, or antifungal agents help people with ASD, and they may be dangerous.
- Melatonin may help with sleep problems in people with ASD.
- Studies have examined omega-3 fatty acids; acupuncture; a modified version of mindfulness-based practices; massage therapy, including qi gong massage; and the hormone oxytocin. It’s not clear whether they improve ASD symptoms, and they should not be used in place of conventional treatments.
- Special diets may help some people with ASD but their nutritional well-being needs to be carefully monitored before and while on the diet.
- There’s very limited evidence that the high-fat, very low carbohydrate “ketogenic” diet may help with seizures sometimes associated with autism.
- A ketogenic diet, used to treat medication-resistant epilepsies, causes the body to break down fats instead of carbohydrates.
- If you’re thinking about giving a child a dietary supplement or trying another complementary health approach, it’s especially important to consult your child’s health care provider. Few complementary approaches have been studied for children.1
- If you’re considering a dietary supplement, remember that “natural” does not mean “safe.” Some dietary supplements may have side effects, and some may interact with medications or other dietary supplements. Taking too much of a supplement or substituting supplements for prescription medicines can be harmful—and even life-threatening.
- The effects of special diets, such as a ketogenic diet, aren’t fully understood. People with ASD need to be monitored when they are on a special diet so they avoid any harmful side effects.
- Marijuana hasn’t been studied for ASD, though there’s interest in its use by some patient groups to help with behavioral symptoms associated with ASD. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has information on many aspects of marijuana, including how chemicals in it affect people’s brain and body.
- Talk to your child’s health care provider to get help assessing what, if any, complementary approach would help your child, since children respond differently to interventions.
Do you have any input to offer them here?
Can you think of anyone who might be a better fit for the director of this government agency?
Are they getting any emergency funding in the $2T bill?
HAVE YOU, THE ALTERNATIVE HEALTH ADVOCATE, EVER EVEN HEARD OF THIS PLACE? IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR THIRTY YEARS AND IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE PLACE THAT ANSWERS ALL THE QUESTIONS THAT WE HAVE ABOUT THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAVING OUR CHILDREN FOR YEARS. Does your alt. health professional even know this place exists?
So why are we not showing up at their public meetings and giving input on what we need from the government agency that is supposed to be helping us? Do they even have public meetings?
