Herbal drug crackdown: Millions face having to buy remedies on black market as Europe tightens the rules
Patients could lose access to safe herbal medicines under EU rules, it was claimed yesterday.

Instead they could end up buying potentially dangerous supplies from the black market, say herbalists.

Sales of all herbal remedies, except for a small number of products for 'mild' illness, will be banned to the public under the new law to come in in 2011.

Almost 2,500 UK qualified herbalists and Chinese medicine practitioners will also lose the right to supply a wide range of herbal medicines, because they are not signed up to a statutory regulation scheme.

Unlike healthcare professionals, there is no regulation of herbalists.

The Government has launched a consultation on whether to bring in statutory regulation - which herbalists support. However, many fear the consultation process is too complicated, which could affect the chances of its success.

At least six million Britons have consulted a herbal practitioner in the past two years, according to research.

Leading medical herbalist Dr Ann Walker said: 'At present patients have access to top quality herbal products that are manufactured only for professional use, but we won't be allowed to supply them.

'Traditional remedies from China and India will only be available through the internet or backstreet suppliers, which could pose a serious health risk to the public.'

Dr Michael Dixon, of the Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health, said: 'We fear if the Government refuses statutory regulation, we will see a black market in herbal products, with unlicensed, potentially dangerous remedies.'

Some of these 'backstreet' medicines have been found to contain toxic heavy metals.

Dr Dixon said statutory regulation was 'essential' but the public consultation closes on November 2. The Department of Health said there was no timeline for further action on a regulation scheme.

England had a whole system of herbal medicine based on plants (weeds!) that grew in the hedges and roadsides and fields.

Better get to know the traditional knowledge of your ancestors if the evil fuckers are really going to try to stamp out access to modern herbal remedies.

Also, ordinary culinary herbs and spices have many medicinal applications, I seriously doubt they are going to shut down access to culinary sage, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, thyme etc so get to know those products well and find a cheap bulk supplier or grow your own.

A good book about medicinal powers of culinary herbs and spices is The Magic Teaspoon.

Not to say just roll over and play dead when evil fuckers are trying to restrict your access to life-giving medicines, but in the meantime do what you need to do to survive.

I know I got my head so far into learning such but finding there is just soo soo much that can help us out.

I see this and more as nothing short of a Declaration of war and the best way to fight against the F'kers is to get the information and knowledge out there.

And thankyou for the medicinal book gonna go try and find it before they ban that too..
