(Natural News) The United Kingdom’s publicly funded healthcare system, the National Health Service (NHS), is on the verge of banning homeopathy and herbal medicine. A new consultation document is being sent out to NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to limit the scope of what doctors can prescribe. Instead of cracking down on expensive and side effect-ridden chemical drugs, the NHS is targeting homeopathy and herbal medicine.
The NHS, founded on the principles of providing comprehensive, universal and free healthcare, is about to restrict patients’ access to some of the most simple, effective treatments. It was only a matter of time before the government-ran healthcare system was overran by Big Pharma’s strong-arm tactics and expensive chemical medications that are bankrupting the world.

The NHS is currently suffering from “scarce funds” and doesn’t want to deal with the root of the expense. Instead, the consensus of the NHS governing forces strives to stop homeopathy and herbal medicine. People who seek natural healing will have to find ways to fund it themselves, while being forced to pay for the NHS’s total sell-out to Big Pharma.
Homeopathy and herbal medicine are being called “alternative remedies” that are a “misuse of scarce funds.” NHS England says funds “could be better devoted to treatments that work.” Going forward, patients will only have access to chemical medications to treat dozens of common ailments. If a person has indigestion, they will only get a prescription for proton pump inhibitor heartburn drugs, which block nutrient assimilation in the gut, causing nutrient deficiencies that lead to more health problems down the road. If a person has a sore throat, they will only be allowed free antibiotics that only weaken one’s long term immunity due to sterilization of their microbiome and subsequent microbial resistance. Homeopathic and herbal remedies treat common ailments such as these much more effectively without causing long term, costly health issues. (Learn more at NaturalPedia.com.)
