I think if you want an answer from someone who has been to the School of Natural Healing you should go to this forum:
Ask MH/Barefoot, the owner of that private forum, I'm sure he'd be happy to tell you all about it.
Ask him if the school does in fact hold true to the teachings and philosophy of Dr. Christopher, I think you'll be quite enlightened.
It appears you've had your winkie yanked...more than just a little bit.
This isn't something that requires debate - the reality/truth of this situation is quite clear (and very well known).
From my recent response to you here: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1847426
>>>She didn't really answer the question as far as rewriting Dr. C's work, I will send another message to see if I can get a clear answer.<<<
'No need for that methinks - you certainly did NOT get a "clear answer" on your original questions.
>>>...the FDA will no longer allow the herb company (or any herb company for that matter) to use comfrey in products that are for internal consumption, so some of the formulas have been changed slightly because of this restriction.<<<
Actually, there are plenty of herb companies that are still true to natural health/healing that use comfrey leaf & root in their formulas for internal use.
Christopher's company (which I understand is no longer even in the control of anyone in the Christopher family---or whoever owns the company now)...CHOOSES to change the formulas and leave out the comfrey. This is apparently/likely because they don't want the hassle of fighting the FDA. (If I remember correctly, the FDA did threaten the Christopher company and they simply caved).
Those that have removed comfrey from their formulas CHOOSE to kowtow, rather than to fight the PTB along with the rest of the producers that know comfrey is safe and extremely effective, and continue to make/offer it (but refuse to kowtow). Just like the "Organic Elite" (WholeFoods, et al) that recently decided it was better for them to "co-exist" with Monsanto than stand against them (and risk the lawsuits, etc.)...their choice leaves those with ethically strong standards and less money/power -- to hang out to dry/die (if they can't come up with the money to fight).
So this: >>>the FDA will no longer allow the herb company (or any herb company for that matter) to use comfrey in products that are for internal consumption,<<< ...is total BS.
Taking comfrey (containing allatoin, a cell regenerator) out of Dr. Christopher's BF&C (that is for tissue regeneration) is a LONG way from "changed slightly". It removes the most effective herb.
There is NO question what ethical stance Dr. Christopher would have taken regarding the FDA, PTB & Comfrey (and taking it out of BF&C!!!). The SNH is clearly NOT taking the same stance as their founder.
>>> As far as the purity of herbs that the herb company sells. We just took a tour of their facilities with our Master Graduates at this years seminar. The herb company goes above and beyond the the testing standards of every herb they bring in before it is used in their production of the formulas. They are very much about quality.<<<
Seriously? We know from Dr. Schulze s writings (and because it's the truth) that although zillions of companies have all kinds of 'testing standards' and 'scientific facilities'...they're still using non-organic herbs imported from third-world countries (that are probably irradiated). Unless something has changed recently, you can count on one hand the products that utilize certified organic herbs in the Christopher line.
They may be 'tested' to be all kinds of things (below the legal standards/limit for chemical residue, free of vermin, below the legal standard/limits for adulterants, etc); and they may be warehoused in a pristine facility. But that does NOT mean they meet the standards of Dr. Christopher or Dr. Schulze! Schulze says 90-95% of the herbs marketed in the US meet all kinds of 'scientific standards'...government standards we KNOW are not even CLOSE to those of a true organic grower & processor.
It's very similar to a chain grocery store...if you 'tour their facilities' you will find every nook & cranny (as well as every item of 'food') to be 'above & beyond' the various "testing standards". WHOSE standards? Yours? Mine? Christopher's? Schulzes?
>>>In fact David wont allow any books to be sold through Christopher Publications that aren't true to the philosophies, even if it is just one little thing <<<
Scanning the list of books sold by Christopher Publications, I see several authored by MDs. The idea that there's not even "one little thing" in these books that doesn't agree with Dr. Christopher's philosophies is QUITE a stretch! Even more of the stretch when you see the "alternative authors" on the list and know that Dr. Christopher was NONE too fond of "dead supplements".
There are many (many!) people, both those that have attended SNH and know the family/teachers personally that know the truth. And there's also those that have 'dug in deep' and studied Dr. Christopher's works extensively (like myself), who KNOW & believe the reality of the situation. And that reality IS the reality. And that reality can't be changed by a representative of the SNH stating otherwise.
If you want to know more, 'dig in deep' yourself and research-through Dr. Schulzes lesser publicized older newsletters, etc., to find what he saw firsthand. Remember, Dr. Christopher himself appointed him to teach at SNH until David altered that appointment after his father died.
Also, be sure to ask Barefoot, too. He's a student and if he has the time he has a lot of information about how the SNH has negatively impacted Dr. Christopher.
If you have any proof the Christopher's company/line sources certified organic herbs from quality US sources (other than just a spattering), let us know. Other questions you might want to ask include "country of origin & pesticides allowed" of each herb; harvesting standards; how the herbs are dried (and what temp); are they irradiated or sprayed with pesticides during shipment (or before they're allowed into the US); what specifically ARE the "standards" of which they speak, and do they have data sheets on each herb (why or why not); how long are their tinctures tinctured; what's the alcohol to herbs ratio; are they tinctured with the moon cycle...and if the company is NOT owned by Christopher's family (which it seems they are not, as they didn't refer to it as "their" facility"...then you'll need to get that data from the actual company in charge (not just someone outside the company that has toured their facility). Speaking of which...touring a facilty and listening to "the speech" doesn't prove a whole lot - I'm sure that one touring a pharmaceutical facility would be convinced of their "standards", as well.
All done this topic (we've covered it many times already) -
