What's at risk?

  • Health Minister Greg Hunt has cut health insurance rebates for natural therapies.
  • The Turnbull Government is considering banning natural medicines from sale in pharmacies.
  • Educational courses are being shut down and practitioners unable to access ingredients.
  • And, the Therapeutic Goods Administration is pushing to de-regulate natural medicine products, putting your safety at risk.

Why?

Behind all of these drastic cuts and proposed changes are Government-funded reports that declare there is NO evidence that 17 natural therapies from yoga to naturopathy are effective. The Government is using the reports to justify restricting your choice in healthcare.

  • We want to know why the Government is ignoring world-wide, positive scientific evidence.
  • We want a Senate Inquiry to scrutinise these reports starting with the very first report that is now the subject of a complaint to the Commonwealth Ombudsman.
