Editorial Issue 199 Print Email

We are all groaning from the sheer weight of available information about every aspect of health, in technical and popular media.  I spend just about my entire life reading, researching, trawling and publishing about health and medical issues. Moreover, the vital importance of having not only the facts, but also the who and where one can pursue the appropriate course of treatment is invariably brought home when a person you know is suffering from a particular illness or condition.

As we edge toward Issue 200 of Positive Health PH Online - Issue 198 - I can report that as usual, there are events of Alternative / Complementary / Natural Medicine prompting dramatic, urgent actions, such as the current ban by the UK medicines regulator, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) that Echinacea should not be taken by children under 12 years of age because of an association with a “low risk of allergic reactions”. www.positivehealth.com/article/letters-to-the-editor/letters-to-the-editor-issue-198

As Editor and one of the co-founders of Positive Health PH Online, you can imagine the mountains of daily emails I receive; in fact, one of my recent resolutions I am enacting, also mentioned in my most recent PH Online blog is my unsubscription from extraneous emails. It is too early to definitely report this a success; however I am tentatively noticing a dramatic decrease in email volumes.

Positive Health PH Online is not a political publication; however I don't feel the need to apologize for my great sense of loss on hearing that only yesterday 22 Feb one of the finest journalists of her generation, Marie Colvin, along with French photographer Remi Ochlik and scores of civilians were killed in Homs, Syria, adding to the lengthening death toll of over 5,000 Syrians killed. Watching slaughter on television in the face of increasing impotence is not easy for any of us.

The longer I work in the field of publishing medical health information - both natural and conventional treatment approaches, the more I feel as though I live in a warped universe. On the one hand, much progress in the understanding of diagnosis and treatment approaches is reassuring and appears to point to a bright future of better health for all of us. On the other hand, however, is the constant back and forth battles between the staunch protectionist die-hards of the status quo, generally pharmaceutically driven treatments, i.e. drugs, and the natural health-oriented community who obtain their clinical results using traditional, complementary or alternative treatment approaches. The battles rage on with proponents of both extremes steadfast in their rectitude regarding their positions.

It never ceases to amaze me how stridently opposing views are voiced from health and medical professionals inhabiting the same world of healthcare, and who all supposedly must be reading the same research. It simply does not, and never has computed for me how eminently qualified physicians and research scientists can repeatedly state throughout the various media – print, broadcast and social networking – that, for example, there is no science or medical evidence about vitamin C, or that nutritional therapy can be called pseudo-science.

I don’t suppose I am unique, but for me 2011 was an annus horribilis (I have been intending to blog about why, but haven’t yet found the time); I have been quietly thrilled that 2012 has arrived. Despite the continuous never-ending onslaught of doom-ladened media reports about financial meltdown and political back stabbings, everybody I speak with in the natural health universe have got their heads down and are slaving away with their patients, courses, products and events.

My partner Mike Howell and I launched Positive Health PH Online in 1994, following my setting up of the Cancer and Nutrition database for the then Bristol Cancer Help Centre (BCNH) [now Penny Brohn Cancer Care]. One of the main objectives for Positive Health was to make available to health professionals and individuals seriously interested in non-drug treatments, authoritative information published in the scientific literature across the spectrum of natural / complementary / alternative health approaches.
