I’m just passing on this petition via micronutrient researcher Professor Julia Rucklidge:
Something very concerning is developing in New Zealand. It is not unique to NZ – it has already happened in Australia, has been happening in Europe, and it will likely happen in the U.S. and Canada. Under the guise of regulating Natural Health Products (NHPs) to ensure their safety, the NHPs are actually being severely restricted.
In NZ, the government is passing legislation called the Natural Health and Supplementary Products Bill that will limit access to minerals and vitamins.
The work done in the field of nutritional psychiatry by researchers such as Julia is so valuable and limiting access to nutrients with therapeutic benefits and a good safety record will impact many lives.
You may recall our excellent Anxiety Summit interview on micronutrients to treat anxiety and depression and her very inspiring TEDx talk: The surprisingly dramatic role of nutrition in mental health: Julia Rucklidge at TEDx
I signed it, left a comment and am sharing it because:
1) I believe we all have the right to choose what we consume in the way of nutrients
2) I support the work of Dr. Julia Rucklidge and other researchers focused on the growing and valuable field of nutritional psychiatry
3) My clients who have anxiety and panic attacks, and suffer from social anxiety successfully use vitamins/minerals/fatty acids (together with dietary and lifestyle changes) to eliminate their anxiety and should not be denied access to these powerful solutions that address root causes
4) I personally found resolution for my own anxiety and panic attacks with the use of key nutrients and continue to use many to stay in optimal health. I would not want to be denied this choice
This could have worldwide impacts and it’s important that we take a stand. We’d love you to join in and sign the petition and/or leave a comment if it feels like a fit for you, and if you’ve benefited from taking supplements and want continued access to them.
