As presumably are the majority of Positive Health PH Online readers, I have been appalled and assaulted by the depressingly escalating violence and collapse of ancient civilizations and innocent peoples caught up in wars across the globe. As someone who has always valued human life (and health) above all else, the attraction to and escalation of brutal murder by brigands and forces in many nations, is incomprehensible to me. It is sincerely my fervent hope that the combined forces of political, military and humanitarian people and organizations engaged in attempting to stop the violence and killing will result in the restoration of peace and ‘normal life’ to the many millions of people affected.

Even after 22 years as Editor of Positive Health PH Online, it doesn’t get easier to tread the tightrope between the separate orbs of conventional and complementary / alternative medicine. Considering the wide spectrum / remit of article subjects covered in great depth on PH Online - from Healing / Mind/Body / Spiritual Consciousness, Hypnosis,  Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Aromatherapy, Ayurvedic Medicine, Energy Medicine, Bodywork, Massage, Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, Reflexology, Flower Essences, Environmental, Cancer, Heart Disease, many subjects don’t fit neatly into a specific category and many conditions have completely different treatment options from a holistic compared with a drug-based perspective.

It seems a very long time ago now - 1989-90 - while researching for my book Vitamin C - the Master Nutrient that I came across the now well-thumbed subversive book by Robert Houston Repression and Reform in the Evaluation of Alternative Cancer Therapies. 1987. At that time, which predates my authoring of the Consensus Document Nutritional and Lifestyle Guidelines for People with Cancer, setting up the Cancer and Nutrition Database for the then Bristol Cancer Help Centre and launching Positive Health PH Online, reading that natural and alternative cancer cures had been actively and   systematically suppressed since the beginning of the 20th Century was but a novel and troubling part of my consciousness..

Recently there have been virtually apocalyptic warnings about how, with the development and spread of antibiotic resistance to even those drugs of last resort,  the world will be thrown backwards to prehistoric medicine times, with 10 million deaths expected from infections which had been cured by antibiotics. This is not a new development – similar warnings have been issued for decades. However the development of new antibiotic drugs has not kept pace with the enterprising resistant bacteria, placing us all at danger.

It has never been a secret that one of the principal objectives of Positive Health PH Online  was to attempt to bridge the gap between orthodox/allopathic and alternative/complementary medicine. The rationale was that to publish authoritative and credible clinical articles, case studies and published research across the entire spectrum of the many disciplines encompassing the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of health would constitute and add to the body of material available about natural treatment approaches to health issues.

As we publish this Positive Health PH Online Issue 221, progress or the lack thereof toward attaining acceptance / recognition of the efficacy of non-toxic cancer treatments appears to have suffered major blows in the UK, due to the killing of the Saatchi Innovation Bill at the final hurdle;[1]  a petition to allow this Bill to be debated has been launched[2].

I co-launched Positive Health PH Online some 20+years ago to help bring together - integrate - the disparate treatment approaches / world views of so-called orthodox allopathic and natural complementary / alternative medicine. In 1997 I illustrated the two-solitudes of the Orthodox and Complementary Medicine worlds and put forward an Integrated Medicine Healthcare system to which I have recently referred.  www.positivehealth.com/article/editorial/editorial-issue-214.
