Your freedom of choice for health care is under attack
Integrative and Complementary
medicine plays a huge part in the treatment and prevention of many chronic physical and mental health disorders
This website has been independently created to help generate awareness of attempted severe censorship of integrative and complementary medicine in Australia. The censorship aims to restrict the practice of any doctor who offers, or treats their patients with, these protocols as a health care solution.
The aim of this site is to help generate, and submit, a large body of evidence and case histories highlighting the positive impact integrative and complementary medicine has had, and continues to have, on people’s health and the ripple effect on families and friends.
Simply complete the form below and it will go directly to the Medical Board of Australia, as per their request. You can also select to have a copy of your submission emailed to you. We have provided information on ways to make it easier for you to create an effective submission.
We require submissions from the following:
Doctors & Practitioners
Friends & Families
General Public & Community Groups
In short anyone and everyone who cares about their Health Care Freedom. When you place a submission from this site, with your feedback, you add to the growing voice that aims to challenge this proposal by the Medical Board of Australia.
Every voice counts and this is the time to have your say and keep the freedom of choice for you, your family, friends.
HOW TO WRITE A SUBMISSION
NOTE : Do not include the Name(s) of you Doctor(s), Practice(s).
The Key Issues to address are the harm integrative medicine is said to cause, the risk it is said to have, how vulnerable it is said to make people and the long term negative effects it is claimed to have on people. The other key issue to address is the impact, the loss of freedom of information, options and ultimately the choice we have for our healthcare.
Keep it clear and professional. The depth and length of your submission depends on your skill base and the main message you want to express to the Medical Board of Australia. It is the number of repeat messages that will create a voice loud enough for the MBA to take note. A submission can be one paragraph long or many pages. Here are a number of ways you can have your say on this paper.
– You can write a submission that has your feedback and comments on the MBA paper.
– You can write a submission that shares your health journey as a case history for using Integrative Doctors and Medical treatments.
– You can write a submission that shares your experience of a family member or friend who has used integrative Doctors and Medicine.
– You can write a submission that is combination of all of the above.
There are a number of outcomes and messages you can include in your submission, the best result for us all we be to get the MBA to retract this document and start again with proper consultation with all affected. This can be your first submission and you may want to do that now.
A submission can be a response to the actual MBA paper, it may be to the entire paper or even just to one point. Submissions can be as short as one paragraph.
If you wish to get your message across more strongly you can send a copy of your case history to your local politician and the federal Health minister and shadow minister. Addresses are in this site on the Share page.
If you do not wish to use this site, or provide your story independently, and you still want to support keeping health care freedom of choice, you can provide your doctor or practitioner with your story, and with your permission (consent form provided on the resources pages of this site), they can forward it on to the appropriate organisation, or use it as part of their own submission.
The only data we are collecting on this site is the number of submissions clicked (not the content) from this site so we can ensure no submissions are unaccounted for by the medical board.
