Welcome to Wholesome Herald!

Wholesome Herald is your source for health and wellness news. It will cover topics such as food and nutrition, homeopathy, and herbal remedies, as well as provide you with interesting stories, current events, and important alerts that pertain to health freedom. Our mission is to dig deep for the truth in order to provide you with news, information, and resources you may not find in mainstream news outlets.

We look forward to launching this site as a resource to individuals across the globe that share our belief in a natural approach to healthy living. It is our conviction that God’s ways are infinitely greater than man’s ways. This extends into healthy living. Unadulterated, pure foods - the way God made them! - contain what is needed for the human body to live well and defend itself. Toxic chemicals, modifications, food engineering, and other errant practices are destroying people’s physical health. Today we face an unprecedented level of health problems, particularly here in America, much of which can be traced back to improper nutrition. It is our hope that we can provide a valuable resource, both physically and spiritually, to people seeking it.

Wholesome Herald! We commend you for your clear and unadulterated perspective on natural health and healing. We thought you and your readers should know about our plight.

Daniel Chapter One®, our national Christian radio program and natural healing ministry, may head to court against the Federal Trade Commission in a fight to uphold its rights under the United States Constitution. The battle ensued when the FTC demanded we immediately desist from providing the public with information on natural alternatives for sickness, especially cancer. If successful, the Federal Trade Commission attack on Daniel Chapter One will limit health care consumers' rights.

The American consumer has rights to information, choice, safety and redress (the right to be heard). Presented to Congress as the Consumer Bill of Rights by President Kennedy in March of 1962, these rights form the backbone of wellbeing for individual consumers and for success of the American market economy.

In terms of free-flowing information, the FTC mandates that consumers may only receive health information from producers and sellers that the FTC has determined is proven by the 'science' it selects. No historical knowledge, consumer experience, or traditional practice satisfies FTC demands. The FTC recognizes only expensive double blind 'studies' as support for health claims. Daniel Chapter One has asked its lawyers, and its lawyers have agreed, to challenge this policy as violating Daniel Chapter One's rights under the U.S. Constitution.

By depriving consumer choice and the right to hear sellers' knowledge about health aspects of their products, the one-size-fits-all FTC health information standard deprives consumer access to alternative health approaches. If the FTC had enforced this standard against Daniel Chapter One® over the past thirty years, hundreds of people who provide testimony that Daniel Chapter One products improved or even saved their lives may not have survived.

With regard to safety, the FTC standard forces individual consumers to use highly toxic chemical products whose benefits, according to its 'science,' outweigh their toxicity. The FTC sets this standard despite the fact that regulators acknowledge they routinely reverse approvals for many of these dangerous products. The FTC, with no staff scientists or science capability, relies on old, selective science. From both old and new science, including genetics, the truth is that biochemical individuality makes one person's potential poison another's possible cure.

The Constitution allows individuals to make potentially risky choices for themselves. The FTC does not. Instead, the FTC makes highly risky choices for consumers who have no way to object. Government and business fight the consumer rights battle between themselves. Consumers have no voice. Most businesses sign an agreement to say only what the FTC permits because their overriding goal is to sell products. Daniel Chapter One's goal is to help people honestly and the help of consumers will be crucial to take this historic stand.

If the FTC has its way with Daniel Chapter One, consumers will be denied useful information, blocked from possibly lifesaving choices, forced to use dangerous products and have nowhere to complain about their treatment. This outcome stems from well intentioned regulators attempting a Herculean job – making people's decisions for them – with minuscule resources. It is time to bring the government back into line with the Constitution and the Consumer Bill of Rights.

With your permission, we would urge your readers to join Daniel Chapter One in its journey to preserve healthcare freedom. Contributions may be to the Daniel Chapter One Legal Defense Fund at www.danielchapteronefreedom.com.

Keep up the good fight!
