More Americans looking beyond their doctors for health info

More Americans looking beyond their doctors for health info

In 2007, 56% of American adults looked for information about personal health concerns from a source other than their doctor, according to a national study by the Center for Studying Health System Change. That's up from 38% in 2001. Most significant was the increase in the use of the Internet, the study found. Also, people with chronic conditions are more likely to seek health information. For example, two in three people with two or more chronic conditions (66%) sought health information in 2007, compared with one in two people without any chronic conditions (50%). Although the use of the Internet for health information has grown since 2001, a recent Harris Poll said that this year is the first since 1998 to not show an increase in the number of U.S. adults going online for health information.

The Supreme Court of New York ruled in favor of Dr Sebi. People should do proper resarch before


In 1988, when the USHA Research Institute won its case against the New York State Supreme Court, it was the first victory of its kind. That victory included the right to practice the healing traditions of our forefathers by using herbs and other natural nutritional substances that are consistent with our genetic structure.

Our premise and methodology was proven effective and true. In prior years, over 2,700 other organizations - including medical doctors, homeopathic doctors, and herbalists - have tried and failed in their efforts to validate their position.

In 1988, the Supreme Court of New York State challenged our premise and methodology. The presiding judge, the Honorable Ann Felton, ordered the Institute to present 9 patients that had been successfully treated for the diseases the Institute claimed to cure. Seventy-seven patients appeared to testify - including a client who flew in from Italy. Each client was required to bring medical records from accredited medical institutions, indicating the diseases they had prior to receiving treatment from the Institute, which included H.I.V./ A.I.D.S. cases - no longer existed. As a result, on September 29, 1988, the Institute won the right to utilize any substance in our herbal compounds, regardless of approval from the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.).

At the time of this victory, 2,789 other cases with medical doctors, homeopathic doctors, and herbalists appeared before the New York State Supreme Court for various reasons. The USHA Research Institute is the only one to win. Through this judicial process, the Supreme Court was made aware of the efficacy of the African Bio-mineral Balance. In effect, this landmark court ruling supports the right of the Black Race to practice a system of nutrition that is consistent with our gene.

The court case was as a result of advertisements we placed in several New York City newspapers, stating A.I.D.S. and other diseases were cured by the USHA Research Institute. The State arrested Dr. Sebi, accusing him of "practicing medicine without a license" and "making fraudulent claims of curing A.I.D.S.". Among the 77 clients that testified in 1988 were former H.I.V./ A.I.D.S. patients. To date, over 80 H.I.V./ A.I.D.S. patients have been proven cured, including Oswald Savala (tested by Laboratorio Parades, La Ceiba, Honduras, C.A., 1994); Alfredo Lagos (tested by Red Cross Laboratories, Tegucigalpa, Honduras, C.A., 1995); and a client tested by the San Diego County Public Health Laboratory in 1998, who requested anonymity.
