OLD CATALOGS & CONGRATULATION LETTERS
First let me say, that we were totally overwhelmed by the offers from the HHA members to help us distribute the "old catalog" that we could not ship after June 1st, according to our agreement in the settlement. We had 29,766 catalogs left and within 48 hours they had been spoken for! We shipped them all today via UPS ground. It was huge undertaking by the Staff and all members at HHA, and we are very thankful. There are NONE left. The amazing thing is that the new catalogs arrived today. They are the same, but have the doctor word edited out of them.

Next. The letters of congratulations have been almost as amazing as the letters everyone sent in on our behalf in the battle. I have to tell you this. The florist truck pulled up on the Friday afternoon after the settlement with a wonderful live arrangement of plants from a long time HHA Member - Alvin Wick... guess where he lives... SWEDEN!!! Special thanks to Alvin and Angela for the thoughtful flowers. Marijah loves flowers!

HHA Member Since 1996 Speaks Out In Letter...
God Bless you and yours, see below for email sent in your behalf.
***************
Dear Sirs,
My name is S.S. I am an ordained minister and until 1993 I trusted in doctors whole heartedly and did everything they told me to do when I got sick so I would get better. Of course prayer was also involved in my healing.
But one day I felt a large lump in my throat and I had no energy and was gaining weight so I went on a 500 calorie a day diet yet I still gained weight and I was getting even worse. Then it got to where the tumor was cutting off my air and choking me. I had gone to a specialist when I found the lump and he put me on drugs only they weren't working and they caused me to swell so badly that it frightened my husband and children to see me that way. So again I was given another drug for the swelling which caused even more problems. And I would now fall on my face when tried to get out of bed because my legs would no longer work when I first got up in the morning.
I got so bad I thought I was going to die from the medications. I
wasn't this sick before I started taking them and this doctor was telling me that I would have to take them for the rest of my life. Which would not have been very long at the rate I was going. He told me that this was the only treatment for the condition that I had and that I would have to have my thyroid removed along with the other mass in my neck.
I prayed even harder for a sign. And so I had a dream and in this dream God showed me a large field with all kinds of different plants for as far as the eye could see. This led me to the Herbal Healer Academy. And of course it's right there in the bible but I was so sick nothing was working right especially my brain. And the medicine made me forget things, It was horrible. Even if the tumor hadn't killed me I did not want to live like this.
Marijah McCain saved me from a horrible life. I weaned myself off of the drugs I was on and took the supplements that I made a choice to take to see if they would help my body to heal itself.
It was wonderful. The large tumor that made me have to sleep in a
recliner slowly began to shrink and I started to get my energy back. I didn't look like the elephant woman as my family started to call me while I was on the Rx.
The last time I went to the doctor for this was in 1996. He told me all of my tests were normal and credited my healing to the drugs that he put me on and tried to give me refills. So I told him I had not been on the drugs for the last year and had used only supplements. I never saw such an angry doctor. I thought he would have been happy for me and would have asked me what I had been taking but his reaction was nothing like I thought. He threw my chart across the counter looked me in the eye and told me I was going to die because I wasn't taking these drugs and stormed out of the
room. I left his office and never went back. The girls in the office called and asked why I didn't stop to make my appointment. When I told them they didn't blame me.
I never did have to have surgery and I am not on any drugs. I am not even taking the supplements that I was on but try to eat a well balanced meal so I get the nutrients to stay healthy. I still have the weight that I gained and if that is the only thing I have to deal with then it's a small price to pay for having my life back. And by the way I am still very much alive and that was 7 years ago.
You see we are so fortunate to have people like Mariah Mc Cain and the Herbal Healer Academy that can help those of us who have no hope left or want an alternative way to heal our body.
To me she is an angel. The doctor didn't care about me all he ever cared about was getting his money and scheduling me back in a month.
We all need some one like Mariah and Herbal Healer Academy. I don't want to have to depend on just my medical doctor. I found out the hard way that they don't know everything either. We should all have a choice. Isn't that what The great USA is all about freedom of choice, freedom of speech?
I do hope that you take the needs of all the people that she has helped into account. Do you realize that when I asked my doctor about vitamins and minerals he didn't care about them even though he knew that if you didn't get enough vitamins and minerals that it caused disease.
Yet he would gladly give me a drug to mask any symptoms from any of those diseases. But cure any of them, no way.
One resident doctor that I talked to said that the drug companies have a huge hand in what doctors can and can not do. And that they don't get taught how to heal diseases only how to treat them because the drug companies depend on them for their large profits and if they are healing patients they won't make the profits.
If you or a loved one had a disease and the doctors said this is all I can do for you, I will tell you this, you are not going to just sit there and wait for the end to come. You are going to get off your duff and look for an answer. Some people don't find their answer and many others do. I found mine at HHA and now you are trying to take it away.
I ask you to please look with in you and give the people of the USA a choice so we can make our own decisions. My heavens I still go to the doctor. I don't know why they are trying to close her down. She has never hurt anyone that I know of. She has helped me and my family so much that I have wanted to learn more and more about healing the body and how it gets sick and what it needs to heal itself.
I was in a pathology class with a doctor from Germany and she was appalled at all the disease that we have here. When I spoke to her about it. She said she was upset because they cured a lot of the diseases that we had talked about in class and in the USA we only treat the symptoms and give medication and keep the person miserable.
I don't know about you but I don't like being miserable and if I had listened to my doctor and stayed on his treatment plan for me I would have been dead by now.
So in defense of the Herbal Healer Academy they have not ever harmed me in any way but have saved my life so I can spend time with my beautiful grandchildren and family. They have also helped others in my family and not once has anyone ever been harmed from anything that was recommended by them. Thank You for Your time, Sincerely, S.S. ~O.M.M.T.E.T.

I Totally Support HHA!
Just wanted to send a copy of what I sent out this AM.
********
I am a member of HHA. That should tell you something...(A MEMBER OF HHA) No one from the Herbal Healer Academy forced me to buy products from HHA or become a MEMBER.... I Don't cry about the prescription drug adds on TV. I take it for what its worth...
Maybe all the people that are claiming Herbal Healer Academy is a bad thing should take a look at modern medicine. Can you tell me why most, if not all prescription drugs are not made in the USA?? I'll tell you why, because the solvents and other chemicals used in manufacturing are known Health hazards, known cancer-causing material. Show us the MSDS on the solvents used in the manufacturing and the cleaning materials used in the pharmaceutical industry..Some of the solvents used the EPA has banned in the USA .. That's why they pick some remote Island to manufacture the product i.e. (cheap labor and no EPA). The Indians used herbs and most lived very long lives.
I totally support Herbal Healer Academy. Best Regards, S. V.

HHA Member Writes About Her Experience with HHA...
I just thought you might like to see the letter that I have sent to the AG, and the Govenor. I am supporting you all the way. I do not believe that this is anything more than an attack on God's way of dealing with health issues.
************************
I have had to deal with allergies all my life. I grew up not ever really knowing what it meant to have a good nights sleep. I went through 4 years of allergy shots and several months of being pricked and poked for testing of these allergies. I never got relief from any of them. Not until some one such as Marijah McCain gave me the heads up on some natural ways to relieve the allergies. Am I so glad I listened. I also had a child who had chronic ear infections and I had been told that "if this dose of antibiotic doesn't work we will need to put tubs in his ears." I had a friend who shared with me (because her mother had learned from Marijah McCain) a natural way to deal with the issue. For the first time in 6 months my child slept like the baby he was, and with out pain. If it weren't for people, Naturopaths such as Marijah McCain, I would have suffered much with my allergies and 3 of my children would have suffered chronic ear infections and had to have dealt with tubs. If it is just the money that the pharmacies & Dr.s want then make them all study a natural approach to medicine and stop this ridiculous chemical war fare experiments on our bodies. Who needs terrorist? We have enough of our own in the so called medical field! She has demoted herself as a Dr. (who would want to be one of them anyway?) and now is doing nothing more than what any health food store employee or owner would do. What do you think she is the only one!? Get real people! She is just a squeaky wheel. If it isn't Marijah it will only be someone else. YOU ARE WASTING OUR MONEY ON STUPID THINGS. WHY DON'T YOU GO AFTER A REAL CRIMINAL! THOSE THAT WON'T ADMIT THAT THE ANSWER TO BETTER HEALTH COULD VERY WELL BE IN OUR OWN BACK YARDS! P.T.

EXIT: Case CV.... It's The Right Thing To Do!
TO: MIKE BEEBE: ARKANSAS ATTORNEY GENERAL
I have been an Herbal Healer Academy member for many years, have a masters level education, am considered a successful professional with a large net worth, and have taken a number of Herbal Healer products over the years with excellent results. At no time have I been 'duped,' 'mislead,' 'hoodwinked,' or 'medically treated against my will.'
We Americans have fought a war for freedom in Iraq. For the sake of freedom on our American soil, and the freedom of multiplied thousands who 'voluntarily' use Herbal Healer products and 'voluntarily' accept or reject the information dispensed by Marijah McCain regarding products and physical ailments, I join the thousands who ask for dismissal of all charges against this woman and Herbal Healer Academy.
SARS may be a threat to world health, but not Herbal Healer Academy. Nor is HHA a threat to the medical industry. Our American mainstream will always turn to traditional and industrialized medicine--if for no other reason--for health insurance. Do not take away the freedom of choice for targeted customers who seek alternative and natural solutions to their health problems.
Marijah McCain has agreed to remove "Doctor" from her name to accommodate the State of Arkansas. Fine. No problem. However, if Marijah McCain's knowledge about the human body, disease, and natural remedies are merely old wives' tales and snake oil, why are there so many repeat customers and longtime members of HHA like myself? The test of any commercial product rests in the pocketbook. If people don't experience positive results, or if they don't like or believe Marijah McCain's information, they simply don't have to buy the products.

Enter Capitalism.
Enter free enterprise.
Enter freedom of choice.
EXIT: Case number is CV 2002 008480 It's the right thing to do.

Thank you, B. J.

My Personal Experience With HHA...
Letter to Mike Beebe 4-25-03: Attorney General Beebe,

It has been brought to my attention that your office is working to close down The Herbal Healer Academy. I would like to make a respectful plea for you to reconsider!
While I understand your concerns that people receive proper medical attention and treatments, I do not believe that HHA poses any threat by offering herbal advice and/or supplements. It is a fact that herbal treatments have been used, safely, for thousands of years, are still used successfully in many other countries, and in fact are the basis for many of our own treatments here in the US. I understand that Marijah McCain is not a licensed medical doctor. She has studied these herbal treatments extensively though, and is more than qualified to suggest and prescribe these safe supplements to people who choose to use herbal remedies. Again, herbal treatments are safe, and so using them should be a matter of personal choice. Marijah McCain only aids her customers further by offering sound advice, making the process even safer for consumers. Have there been any customer complaints filed against HHA regarding unsafe treatments, advice, or products? If HHA was not a threat for all of these years, why are they an “immediate threat” now?
My personal experience, in brief: I was diagnosed with a rare spinal cord disorder two years ago. I have since been to the best medical doctors in this country, neurosurgeons, neurologists, physical therapists, and specialists of all sorts. The problem is not that the medical doctor’s treatments don’t work, the problem is that they have no treatments! Because they have so little experience with my condition, the only options are narcotics and highly dangerous surgeries – which even the medical doctors don’t recommend, until they learn more. I have been researching various alternative therapies since and have been using some products from HHA to alleviate some of my symptoms, with results I hadn’t dared hope for, without the dangerous side effects of the narcotics, and without the extremely dangerous prospect of spinal cord surgery! As you can see, in my case the Herbal Healer is not at all dangerous, but has in fact given me an alternative to danger.
Please halt all action to stop Marijah McCain from doing business, please stop all actions to shut down HHA and the work that they do. This alternative is a safe treatment option for so many of us! I thank you for your time. Sincerely, T. S.

Wonderful Letter Sent In By HHA Member
Here's what I emailed to the Attorney General. I also sent the same email to the Governor. Move to my State! We'd love to have you here! You have helped so many people here! Thank you so much!
***********************
Dear Mr. Beebe,
I found the Herbal Healer Academy website online by sheer luck. I requested a catalog and gave the catalog to my father. He read the catalog from cover to cover and ordered some of the products from the catalog. You would not believe how many people my father has helped in this town and in neighboring towns using Dr. McCain's tea and vitamins.
A local man was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. My father made up the tea for him and he began drinking it daily. The cancer is now GONE. His doctors don't understand it. He went to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and told them he was drinking Dr. McCain's tea. Do you know what their response was? "Keep drinking it".
I am in such a state of shock and total disbelief that you would attack Dr. McCain in this manner. In the two years that I have visited her website & read her catalogs, I have never known Dr. McCain to tell someone that one of the products is an absolute cure. She offers advice and that is all.
As for not wanting Dr. McCain to go by "Dr" I think this is ridiculous. This IS America, is it not? If she is a doctor in another country, she is STILL a doctor. She is not treating anyone in an office. She is a holistic healer who lists the products she has for sale and lists what these products may help you with. This is called alternative medicine. It's not new, it's incredibly old, but obviously in Arkansas y'all have yet to hear of it.
Are you claiming to know more about the medical world than the Mayo Clinic? I say, if the Mayo Clinic supports Dr. McCain, then you need to end this witchhunt immediately. Thank you for reading this email.
Sincerely, K. H.

We Have A Right To Choose... Please Let Her Continue...
Dear Sirs,
I am writing to you to express my opinion regarding the injunction against Marijah McCain and Herbal Healer Academy (Case number is CV 2002 008480). I do not know her personally and I've never met her, however, I would dearly love to be personal friends with her. This is a woman who has devoted her life to healing and helping people heal themselves. She truly cares about assisting people to heal themselves by providing herbs and natural remedies, that otherwise would be next to impossible to learn about or find. She doesn't depend on insurance companies to support her. She doesn't charge high, ridiculous fees like the medical profession does. She makes no claims. She only wants to assist people in learning about the body and it's nutritional needs........something medical doctors aren't even aware of.
In my opinion, this is an effort for the state to step in and take away another right that we, the people, need and deserve. I don't like the medical profession because of all the dangerous drugs, surgeries, and therapies they force on the public, and call safe, just because they can. It's a way of controlling people and not giving people a choice. Our system has become one that can legally cause much harm, disease, and death because the people who do so, have a license to do whatever they see fit.
In my own family, I had a neice who, at the age of 16 lost a leg because a "medical doctor" severed the main artery in her leg while performing a test. That doctor was never questioned, and remained in practice. When she was 36, she died because of an IV that was not performed properly, and caused a blood clot in her arm that traveled to her heart. The nurse who did it, remained in her position. Her father who is my brother was turned away from the emergency room after he went there thinking he had a stroke. Two hours after he was released from the emergency room, he was found by a friend wandering around in a staggering fashion, not even knowing who he was or where he was.......yet, they found nothing wrong with him!! Three years ago, I lost my father who had been treated for 3 years for lymphoma and was just "doing great", even though he complained constantly for 3 years that his legs hurt him so badly. He was told that was normal, and was the result of the chemotherapy he was given. He suddenly developed a high fever and as I arrived at the hospital to see him, I was told he was in the "final stages" of cancer because they just did a bone marrow biopsy and discovered the cancer was also in his bones......gee......they must have neglected to check out his complaints! Oh, well.....too bad! That doctor is still in practice and was never questioned about his actions. This is INSANITY that happens everyday in our hospitals and is totally overlooked, yet you attempt to shut down someone like Marijah McCain who is doing nothing but good!
Years ago, my husband developed a bad case of diarrhea after being treated for a kidney infection. The doctor had no idea why he had diarrhea and couldn't help him. I went to a health food store and bought a bottle of acidophilus, and after 2 teaspoonsful, it cleared up because it replaced the natural flora the kidney medication had removed. A doctor had no idea what to do, but I learned about it in a book written by a wonderful lady named Adel Davis, who had the guts and fortitude just like Marijah McCain does, and wanted to help people learn to heal themselves if that was their choice.
I, myself have been treated like a second class citizen by so many doctors through out the years.......just because they can and have been given the power to do so! My body pains were diagnosed as being "in my head", and I was told......"You are a somatosizer, creating medical problems to cause emotional upset in others"......and .....I love this one....."If I told you what was really wrong with you, you would be mad at me!"......I am now discovering that I have Fibromyalgia, and I've put up with their insane crap for years!!!!!!!! I have suffered for 5 years as a result of an accident that happened where I worked. Because if fell under a workman's comp claim and I had to go to the company's doctors, I was again treated like a second class citizen, and they just couldn't find a thing wrong, even though I had a major whiplash, and my clavical was subluxated, and I had a huge hematoma on my arm causing nerve damage that to this day makes my hand and arm go numb. Doctors are paid off, not to find a problem, yet they continue to treat people after overlooking obvious injuries. It's a total sham that goes on in the medical profession, yet very few of them are questioned as DOCTOR McCain is.
Yes.......I call her a DOCTOR because she is so much more of a doctor and knows soooooo much more about the body and healing than most licensed medical doctors I've seen in my life.
As a human being, I have the right to treat myself with whatever method I chose, instead of falling prey to the insanity of the medical profession. I choose to take the responsiblity for my own health, and not trust people who are mainly driven by the dollar and supported by drug companies. We need people like DOCTOR Mc Cain who are willing to devote time to teaching people how to treat the body in a safe, natural, risk free approach. If we are willing to do it, and not hold anyone responsible for harm, then we have the right to do it. We aren't talking about the dangers of radiation, chemotherapy, and being guinea pigs for medication that cause a myriad of other diseases by breaking down the body's resistance. We are talking about safe, natural products that help heal the body, not tear it down, like conventional medication does.
Please, please, please.........let this wonderful woman continue what she does with such expertise. We have a right to choose the method we prefer. Whether your attack on her is the result of lobbyist supported by the AMA or whether this is a personal challenge you have taken upon yourself to resolve, please realize that the people need to have a choice in where they receive information regarding their health. There are no drug companies behind her pushing millions of prescriptions like the medical profession has. She is one woman helping people to help themselves.
Thank you for hearing my statements. Sincerely, J.B.

I Should Be Allowed To Choose...
Attorney General Beebe,
I am writing this letter in reference to the upcoming trial of Herbal Healer Academy case number cv20028480 The first thing I want to say is that I am sick to death of being told that I live in a "FREE country" How exactly is this a free country if we are not even free to choose what we will do with our own bodies? My body is my own and I should be allowed to choose any method I see fit to cure it, heal it, or comfort it. Who am I harming in making that choice? If this were really a FREE Country that choice would be mine and mine alone. HHA has existed now for fifteen years. How many customers have come forward to say that they have been "harmed" by the advice they were given by DOCTOR McCain or her associates? NONE. It is alleged that Dr McCain and HHA are posing a "substantial danger to the health, welfare, and safety of the public." PROVE IT!!! If you want to attack any one for this, you should be attacking the FDA for allowing them to put just a little bit of poison into all the processed food on the markets. I would like to know what research you have done to prove these bogus allegations! HHA is being charged for using "misleading advertisements" HA HA HA sorry I have to laugh at that one. I guess drinking beer will get me this amazing body or somehow improve my sex life or my social life. HAHAHA . HHA's ads are probably the MOST honest I have ever seen. NO WHERE does it say that I will become a doctor by taking these courses. IT IS VERY CLEAR that HHA's courses are just an introduction to naturopathy. I personally (being of low income) would rather go eat dandelion greens out of my yard to get the vitamin C I need or eat garlic to boost my immune system or help with a cold than to eat tylenol that will eventually kill my liver. I would rather eat cayenne to keep my heart rate regular than to take aspirin that will kill my kidneys. Maybe you should research these things before you accuse anyone of hurting people. We all know that the only ones that will be hurt by natural healing, is the pharmaceutical companies. And too bad for them. Cure the disease kill the patient. Its ok to do it that way right? Why don't you ask the Kennedy's how they REALLY feel about natural healing? And before you drop the bomb on HHA get your facts straight!!!I wish that I could be there for DOCTOR McCain on April 30 she is a remarkable woman. Have you met her???? The next time you are ill or some one you love is ill and your precious doctor says I don't know what's wrong.... Think of her. God Bless - R. L.

HHA Is A Fine Company... Best Herbs On The Market..
I sent the following letter to all the people listed in the email. Just thought you would like to know. God Bless and praying for your success.
**********************************
Gentlemen: I don't know why you are picking on Herbal Healer Academy. They are a fine company and M. McCain is providing the best herbs on the market. Before I started using herbs from Herbal Healer, I was on four prescription drugs for my Systemic Lupus. I had temperatures of 105 nightly and the prescriptions were damaging my liver and one kidney. I had migraines daily. After using the 4-herb tea with mountain hew tips and raspberry leaves, I now only take a prescription for low thyroid. I no longer have daily migraine attacks and do not run temperatures over 101 at night. I went the medical doctor route for 16 years and all I got was more trouble and more prescriptions that had terrible side effects! Please use some common sense and leave Herbal Healer alone!Sincerely, M.P.

Best To Work Together With Herbalists for Cures...
Sir I received an email from Herbal Healer Acadamy and I would like to know something. Since when do you and the law violate herbal rememdies that have been passed down from generation after generation since Adam and Eve and used first by Kings and Queens around the world. For over 6000 years and now you listen to the AMA and those lawyers who do not know facts af this; and their medicine not rememedies is ONLY 150 about years old. The Chiness people use it, the Mexican people use it and so do many other countries use the herbal rememdies for so many years. These traditions were passed down through the Amish and Mennanites in this country since the landing a Plymouth Rock.
Some day soon you will need these rememdies and will not have them when you outlaw them. When that happens sir you will be reminded as to why you can not or others can not be healed when herbal healing which is directly reponsible for total body healing. Modern medicine is only for treatment of the after effects and pains and not the real cure. Modern medicine has become a big business for the pharmacutical companies and for the laywers in mal practice suites. This badgering and outlawing has got to stop and look at the full truth since SARS and other deseases has raised up in our news; all around the world. I think it would be best to work together with herbalists and let them help get cures and not shut them down when it was herbal rememedies that saved Europe from the black plague when medicine doctors and pharmaceuticals was not even invented yet. Think about this and consider these facts and seek the truth about this I ask you now. Once you destroy what God has given us then is you and your decisions that will have to face the White Throne of Judgement before Him soon. I am in bible prophecy and I can tell you this time frame is very soon so I ask you humbly to consider what the outcome is that you are going to deal with then. Shalom and Peace Dr B. E. ND ~ New Mexico and student at HHA.

If Her Business Is Closed Down,,,
I cannot sit idly by and watch this happen to you, not after everything you and Herbal Healer Academy have done for me and my family. I am sending out the following letter. I am joining my prayers with the thousands of others in support!!
TO: MIKE BEEBE: ARKANSAS ATTORNEY GENERAL
LAMAR DAVIS: Assistant Attorney General
HON. BARRY SIMS - Circuit Judge for the 7th Division, Palaski County, Arkansas
ARKANSAS GOVERNOR - MIKE HUCKABEE
Re: Herbal Healer Academy; Marijah McCain
Case number: CV 2002 008480

This injunction and the charges against Herbal Healer Academy and Marijah McCain should be dropped immediately! The argument that she represents an immediate threat is ludicrous. The only irreparable harm that will occur if her business is closed down is the sickness and death of the thousands of us that rely on her research and recommendations as well as the wonderful natural health care supplements she sells. I tell this to anyone and everyone that will listen...my father would not be alive today if it wasn't for Marijah McCain and Herbal Healer Academy.
How can she be in violation of Arkansas Code ANN. 17-95-403, et seq. when she is not a medical doctor, has never claimed to be a medical doctor (She is a naturopathic doctor. Please take the time to learn the difference). She has already agreed to comply with your request to remove the term doctor from her naturopathic business. She has never harmed or injured anyone, has had no customer complaints, ie. there is no evidence that she "and Herbal Healer Academy represent a substantial danger to the health, welfare, and safety of the public...". Thousands of people depend on the well researched and quality advice on obtaining and maintaining quality health given by Marijah McCain.
I find the harassement that Marijah McCain and Herbal Healer Academy have had to endure due to this bogus lawsuit especially upsetting. Here is a woman dedicating her life to helping others, saving lives, and this is the thanks she gets? Please drop these charges and allow Herbal Healer Academy to continue with its business of healing. You may just find you need her one day. P.A.

Native American Sends Letters...
Osiyo! This is the letter I sent to the email addresses. I will call the other numbers tomorrow. I hope this helps. You definatley have my support. I am also sending this out to people on my email list.
***************************
Greetings. This is a letter of support for Marijah McCain. As Human beings, we have the right to choose our method of healing as well as the practitioner. As native people, we have the right to choose a natural & spiritual practice for our method of health and healing. We will continue to unite and stand up for our rights to heal ourselves with natural herbs and prayer. These are things that you know nothing about and have no right to regulate us. You show much arrogance in stating that you know better than us what is best for us and the best way for us to take care of ourselves and our families. We have faith in nature, not in Western ways.

Dear Bill, I hope this email reaches you, as I cannot afford to be a premium member of your website and this is the only email address I could find on both websites.
I am writing in support of a woman, a naturopath named Marijah McCain and her business Herbal Healer Academy Inc., 127 McCain Dr., Mt. View, Arkansas 72560 (www.herbalhealer.com). The state of Arkansas is in the process of trying to close down her business simply because of the fact that she offers an alternative to traditional medicines. She is a naturopath, offers natural remedies, is very qualified and has never promoted herself as an MD. This lawsuit is simple harassment and reminds me of the "witch hunts" in centuries past. I personally have used many of her products as have my family members and pets, with no harm caused to us whatsoever. (On the other hand, we have all been harmed by chemical medicines with their many debilitating side effects.)
This situation grates at my sense of freedom that this woman should be prevented from continuing with her work and business. The state of Arkansas should not be interfering with her, especially with apparently no complaints from her legitimate customers. She has complied with all their ridiculous demands at her expense, and still they will not end this suit. All the details of the suit can be found on the website I listed above. The link below is an update as well as support letters on her behalf. Mine is there also where I offer to contact you for help. This type of strong-arming by the government is what makes many people feel that the government, the FDA, the pharmaceutical companies and the medical community are keeping Americans from making their own decisions regarding their health. We have been brainwashed into thinking their way is the only way. Unfortunately, my own experience and those of my loved ones have seen the effects of one versus the other.
Bill, I watch your show every night. I have great admiration for your strength of character and am very thankful for your show as well as the entire Fox News Channel. Showing the world that there is a voice of reason and morality willing to stand up to the deceit gives the silent majority of the country hope for the future. I pray that this situation is worthy of your attention as it is so painful to see someone who is a truly caring person have her lifework be ruined by a powerful and hateful government. If you are unable to help, please somehow let her know that you at least had been contacted about it. Thank you so very much. L.C.

HHA Is Providing Very Important Information!
Dear Mr. Beebe and Mr. Davis,

I want you to know that what you are trying to do to Dr. McCain and HHA is ridiculous. Why is it that you think that the government has to stick its nose in every area of the people's lives? The people have the right to choose the medicine and/or medical treatments they as they see fit. Contrary to what you may think, we do not need you or any politicians to tell us what is the best for us. Have you ever thought the reason why so many people in this country have turned to naturopathic medicine? It is because the government has screwed up the "conventional medical" system in this country so badly. Not only does this system (conventional medicine) more often than not only treat the symtoms of an illness and not the actual cause, but also it does so at an tremndous price. Why do you think that so many people in this country cannot afford adequate health care? Why is it that when in the hospital a simple aspirin costs almost $5.00? It is simply because it is all about the almighty dollar. The current healthcare industry is more interested in how much money it can make, not really ensuring that its patients are provided with quality care.

Dr. McCain is providing very important information and quality products and I believe that as an intelligent individual I can decide whether or not to enroll in Dr. McCain's classes or purchase products from her. If you do not want to use that which was given to us by God, that is you choice. However, do not ever think that you are so important as to make this decision for everyone else. J.G.

We Must Not Allow This!
Hi, I just recently signed up as a member and am signed up for your herbolgy course. I received your urgent email and this is what I have emailed on your behalf to the Attorney General ect. You and your company are in my prayers as it would be a waste not be able tp practice the gift that God has given you in helping others. Hope this will help your case.
*********************
This is a letter on the behalf of the Herbal Healer Academy Inc. RE: Marijah McCain Case number: CV 2002 008480 I am requesting that the charges should be dropped against her asking that she be allowed to continue on with her business especially since she has been willing to comply with your request to remove the term Doctor from her
Practice. Marijah Cain has had no customer complaints nor has she caused harm or injury to anyone. On the contrary, she has thousands of people who depend on her quality advice and skills as a Naturopath alternative practitioner. The Herbal Healer Academy offers the very supplements and advice that is tantamount to improving health.
We must not allow this! There is such a thing as Freedom to choose and freedom to pay for the herbs and supplements that we need and access to quality advice from skilled professionals like Marijah McCain who have dedicated themselves to alternative health and proven themselves many times over. It is my desire that she may continue with her God Given Gift of helping others with the nature of God’s great design. It is not for you and your special decision making to interfere with the much-needed expertise that she makes available in helping others. Please stop the lawsuits and harassment of her company and allow her to be a blessing to all of us that so greatly desire to consult with her. Sincerely, K.R. Satisfied Customer

I Will Be Sending This To Every New Service and National Publication...
I sent the following letter to the Mike Beebe, Lamar Davis, and Governor Huckabee. I will also make a phone call to Judge Barry Simms on Monday. Hope it helps.
******************
My name is A.E., and I am a 53 year old disabled woman living in Wyoming. I am not a "crackpot", a "joiner", or a follower. I am a fairly well educated person who investigates any and all advice, before taking it, and who functions well within society and my community.
I was recently informed of an attempt by the Arkansas Attorney General's office to close down the business of Marijah McCain and Herbal Healer Academy. They are claiming that Ms.McCain "represents a substantial danger to the health, welfare, and safety of the public and irreparable harm will occur if these defendants are not immediately enjoined from these complained activities." They have also insisted that Ms. McCain cease and desist using the title Dr. in any of her dealings, even though the title Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine is the standard title used by accredited Naturopaths. I find this so astounding it just boggles my mind. The Attorney General's Office also insists "That McCain and HHA shall not suggest, recommend, prescribe, or administer treatment, or healing for the intended relief, or cure of physical diseases, ailments, injuries, or conditions.", even though Ms. McCain IS a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, as well as trained and licensed in MANY healing modalities. Are all licensed alternative healers in Arkansas under such attack, or only Ms. McCain and Herbal Healer Academy?
It is my understanding that the Attorney General's Office has no customer complaints or evidence that HHA or Marijah McCain has harmed or injured anyone. The fact is no one has ever been harmed by HHA or Marijah McCain since 1988 when they were formed. Not only that, thousands of people depend on this type of quality advice from a skilled alternative practitioner, myself included. Ms. McCain and Herbal Healer Academy have given me untold help over the years for problems as severe as Arterioschlerosis and high blood pressure for myself, to fleas on my dog, and a lot of problems of varying severity in between. She is one of the few Naturopaths I have found, on the internet, or otherwise, that doesn't seem to be "all about the money" and exhibits a genuine concern and caring for each and every person she assists. She actually tries to keep her prices low, so that those of us who use and believe in other forms of healing besides drugs and surgery offered by the mainstream medical establishment can actually afford to keep ourselves healthy. Are the AMA and other allopathic associations so powerful in your state, are they losing so much money to alternative practitioners, that they have convinced someone in a position of authority to harass and try to run out of business anyone who works outside their circle of "approval"? Many religious people believe in ONLY natural medicine. Many learned people have seen first hand the benefits of taking responsibility for their own health, and using nature's cures to bring about good health for their families. And thousands of people have come to rely on Marijah McCain and Herbal Healer Academy for advise, and safe,tested, and proven herbal and alternative healing products and practices.
So, my question is: WHY is Ms. McCain and Herbal Healer Academy under
attack? Is it Arkansas's position that only licensed MEDICAL doctors should be allowed to "practice" healing? Are your chiropractors quaking in their boots, for fear they will be NEXT on the "hit list"? I find it very hypocritical that drug companies can "jump on the herbal bandwagon" and start offering Ginseng, Garlic, Echinacea, St. John's Wort, and a host of other herbal products, without benefit of tests or trials, and based solely on age-old "common knowledge" while "making claims" as to their benefit and use, but I don't see Arkansas making the sale of such products or the implied "advice" of their advertising, illegal in your state. Are the lawmakers and enforcers in your state SO corrupt that you would go along with such an unfair and biased attack on someone who does so much good, and has harmed no one? Please investigate this matter. This seems very much like investigating a lawyer for giving people advise, when there have been no complaints, or a social worker or counselor, when there have been no complaints. All the letters and titles behind Ms. McCains's name are not there for decoration. She is certified and licensed to give the advise she gives. Please STOP the harassment of this good woman, and allow her to continue helping the thousands of us that depend on her.
Thank you for your time, and I trust that you will also see the hypocrisy of this action and take the appropriate measures. Even though the Attorney General's Office is, for some reason, on a campaign to destroy someone's life, livelihood and ability to give back to society in her area of expertise, I feel confident that everyone in the State of Arkansas cannot possibly be so backward, closed minded, and basically..against the constitution of the United States, which is all ABOUT freedom to live and practice as you believe, as long as it harms no one. I will be forwarding copies of this letter to every news service and national publication I can think of in the hopes that someone, somewhere will pick up this story, and make whoever is spear-heading this drive to run ONE particular woman out of business in Arkansas look like the HORSES' ASS that he is. Sincerely, A.W.E

The Real Truth Spoken From An HHA Member...
Mr. Beebe,
Please take into consideration everyone that is affected by the case against Marijah McCain and Herbal Healer Academy. I am a 36 year old single mother. I have been diagnosed with sever arthritis in my hips and lower back, degenerative disk disease, and I have a hairline crack in my spine. I have been through several medical doctors and prescriptions. All they did was cover up the pain and make me sleepy, depressed, and not feeling any better. Take one drug, then this other drug to combat the side effects, oh yeah, take this for the depression, etc.... After tons of research, and trying other "natural" remedies, I found www.herbalhealer.com. With Marijah McCains advice, the severe pain has been greatly reduced and I am able to live normally. Without her help and available herbs, I know I will fall back into the same painful cycle from years ago.
Mr. Beebe, Marijah McCain has complied with your offices demand to change her title. I have two children and my mother to take care of, please do not close down Herbal Healer. Please don't put me back in constant pain. Thank you for your time, attention, and compassion.
L.H. ~ North Carolina

I Do Not Agree With This!!!
Mike Beebe Esq, Arkansas Attorney General
Re: Herbal Healer - Case number is CV 2002 008480
Dear Mr. Beebe: As a person who has recently gone through seven years of worthless, incompetent MDs, whose usual interest is only to max billables and absently care for their patients, I absolutely do not agree with -- or understand your actions against -- the Herbal Healing Academy -- other than that they are politically motivated. Presently, I am trying to settle my own lawsuit against my own insurance company for what is laughingly known as "no fault auto insurance" here in NJ -- I therefore understand political corruption well. Understandably, after spending over $75,000 on mostly worthless "healthcare," with nothing to show for this extraordinary amount of money than an injured, diseased body worse than when I started on this trek through hell, I am definitely in a real bad mood -- especially when you seek to take the products I depend on -- away from me -- and from other customers of the Herbal Healing Academy.
If everything I have read thus far about your action is true, you need to prove the "harm" you are seeking to protect "the people" from -- if we are to believe that the basis for your claims are other than political motivation. You need to declare who is really behind your assertions. If we examined your political office, political party affiliations, ties to the medical community -- what exactly would we find?
Several states throughout the United States have already passed laws to welcome, support and protect practitioners like Dr. Marijah McCain. You need to understand that Americans are no longer fooled by the so-called quality of healthcare in America today. We know we are blatantly exploited by the medical, insurance and pharmaceutical industries -- so much so, they've created for themselves a government supported and protected $500 billion per year industry -- most dollars, stolen from the American taxpayers' pocket -- due to the largesse of the Federal and state politicians who coincidentally receive these same industries' campaign contributions. Out of 30 countries worldwide, the United States has the highest healthcare costs -- yet still -- three out of four people die of chronic diseases in this country -- many in their 60s to 90s -- when world studies conclude that life can be productive, fulfilled and healthy -- even past 100. Is there money to be made by causing and proliferating disease in the US? Absolutely. That's why the National Practitioners' Database in Washington, DC, is closed to public scrutiny. That's why state medical boards are run by colleagues of the practitioners we complain against -- the same people who enable the offenders who really hurt us. The statistical studies of each states so-called investigations -- with their low validation of complaints -- is laughable -- and statistically improbable. Nonetheless, they stand -- and shrouded in secrecy and confidentiality -- consumers have no method of demanding their accountability. Why don't you go after your state's medical board for fraud? Shall we discuss the FDA and how many drugs they released prematurely that ultimately hurt and killed people? The AMA and their efforts to stop any real, meaningful healthcare to proliferate in this country? If I understand correctly, your campaign has been funded by such medical groups, has it not?
Mr. Beebe, I believe that your conduct is unacceptable. I believe you are operating outside the responsibilities of your office and likely in service to influence that has no business using your office. When this action is dismissed, the people of Arkansas would be best served by investigating how and why this matter was filed at all. You serve the people of Arkansas -- not special interests. The people have a right to know what your real motivations in this matter are. P.N. New Jersey

It Is Very Clear That You Are Listening To...
Dear Mr. Beebe & Mr. Davis:
It disgusts me that you continue to harass Stephen and Marijah McCain. If you would take a little time and find out for yourselves what a Naturopath is and does, I believe you would quickly change your minds. It’s very clear that you are listening to the medical doctors, AMA, pharmaceutical folks, et.al. rather than your own good sense, but of course you’re listening to them because they helped fund your elections.
Being from Utah, I thought it was a backward state but you’ve managed to beat them hands-down with this one. Why not take this opportunity and join the 21st Century and learn what’s really going on in our day and age. Come on, it ain’t that scary, besides you might discover a few things you like, and some that even work like they're supposed too.
Doesn’t the government already interfere too much in deciding what we buy and from whom? I don’t know of anyone who has been injured by Herbal Healer products, or anyone who has been forced to buy them, do you? I’m glad that I don’t have depend on your opinions to maintain my current state of good health, but I do depend on the McCain's expertise.
Finally, I ask you to reconsider dropping this case and save the taxpayers some money.... and yourselves the embarrassment. I also ask that you forward this letter on to the governor as I couldn’t locate his email address. Apparently he has chosen to insulate himself from those who elected him. Sincerely, K. Z.

We Must Not Allow This!!!
Here is a copy of the letter I just sent (to all requested) in response to your latest urgent bulletin. Best of Luck.

April 25, 2003
TO: All concerned
RE: Marijah McCain and the Herbal Healer Academy
Case number: CV 2002 008480
Dr. Marijah McCain is a Naturopath. Naturopaths train and study in many forms of alternative healing, thus they recommend natural (alternative) healing modalities including herbs and supplements. Currently, I see a Naturopath who has helped me greatly with my own serious health issues. I do so of MY OWN FREE WILL and am willing to pay for such services out of my own pocket.
The current system of HMO’s and pharmaceutical controlled medical care is a farce and failing miserably. It has failed me and if it weren’t for people like Marijah McCain, many others and myself would be resigned to a faltering medical system that is declining and falls short of the true purpose of healing. Personally, I was going downhill quickly with liver disease. Standard medical treatment had nothing to offer save dangerous drugs that I could not tolerate. A.M.A. physicians for the most part have no training, background or desire to learn about alternative healing. Some are waking up, but most are not. They are effectively denying their patients access to an expansive realm of treatments that can help and cure many. That is truly criminal. I am now part of a vast network of individuals who are dedicated to healing themselves (and mind you paying for it themselves) using alternative modalities. Furthermore, we are not only improving our health, we are beating the odds that so-called modern medicine has not been able to do.
Pharmaceutical drugs alone kill hundreds of thousands each year and it is legal. Rarely, is there a problem with alternatives causing harm, but when this does occur (and it is almost always due to someone not seeking the advice of a knowledgeable naturopath like Dr. McCain), the establishment closes in to shut down or remove access to the supplement. We need more people like Dr. McCain to keep these rare instances of adversity from occurring. One can see why this attempt to prohibit our access to alternative healing methods threatens the status quo and has nothing whatsoever to do with protecting the public.
The injunction to close down the Herbal Healer Academy and prevent Dr. McCain (yes, she deserves to be called Doctor more than many so called physicians I have encountered) amounts to nothing more than harassment. This is an outrageous attack on those who desire alternatives to the current medical regime’s tactics of keeping the pharmaceutical companies on the gravy train. Just who is behind this and why? That’s where you’ll find the real criminals.
Marijah Cain has had no customer complaints nor has she caused harm or injury to anyone. On the contrary, she has thousands of people who depend on her quality advice and skills as a Naturopath alternative practitioner. The Herbal Healer Academy offers the very supplements and advice that is tantamount to improving health.
We must not allow this! Put a stop to this immediately and stand up for what “WE THE PEOPLE” really want…freedom to choose and freedom to pay for the herbs and supplements that we need and access to quality advice from skilled professionals like Marijah McCain who have dedicated themselves to alternative health and proven themselves many times over. Sincerely, J.O.

I Will Be Writing To These...
Marijah, I am so sorry to hear of your diffuculties with the state of Arkansas. Sounds like they have it in for you. I will be writing letters on behalf of Herbal Healer Academy to these dim-witted, un-educated blind fools. If worse comes to worse, you are welcome here in the Great State of TEXAS!!!! D.M. ~ Texas!

I Would Be Happy To Contact Bill O'Reilly!!
Dear Mrs. McCain,
In response to your recent email regarding the frivolous lawsuit against you, I have sent a email to the Attorney General's office in your state. I am sending the content of this email to you (below). I hope it helps. I think this situation should come to the attention of the country. I would be more than happy to contact Bill O'Reilly at the Fox News Channel. If anyone can put a spotlight on such an unfair situation, he can. I will only do this with your permission.
****************************
To: oag@ag.state.ar.us
Dear Mr. Beebe,
I am writing in support of Marijah McCain and Herbal Healer Academy. I have been a customer of hers for several years, purchasing health supplements for myself, family, and pets. In that time, we have not once been harmed from anything purchased from her and she should be commended, not condemned, for her sincere desire to help people take proper care of themselves using natural choices.
It constantly amazes me to hear of certain government groups interfering with small, harmless businesses. Mrs. McCain does not claim to be a miracle healer and only describes what each supplement is commonly known for. She is meticulous in providing the freshest herbs and will return to her suppliers those that are not, at her own expense. Herbs have been used since the dawn of time, long before lawyers, doctors, and the FDA. Many times, those considered "healers" were called witches by ignorant people and killed for it. Since this lawsuit against Mrs. McCain and the Herbal Healer Academy is a 21st century form of witch hunt, I sincerely hope that this lawsuit will be dropped and Mrs. McCain will be allowed her God-given and Constitutional right to continue her kindness to humanity.
As a personal testimony, I once wrote a letter to Mrs. McCain asking for advice on whether I had chosed the correct items for a certain health situation of mine. I received in reply a letter explaining that Mrs. McCain could not answer such questions. In other words, she was unable ethically to diagnose and give advice such as a medical doctor would. I find this to be a small piece of evidence that she is innocent of the accusations claimed in the lawsuit. I would be happy to provide that letter in defense of Mrs. McCain.
I would also like to add that I have experienced and have known others using allopathic drugs, supposedly considered safe by the FDA, which have caused more suffering and sickness than the illness itself. I will not go into detail at this writing, but if you need examples of the types of drugs prescribed to me as well as the drugs prescribed to my parents in the years before their deaths and the harm they caused, I would be more than happy to provide them. In contrast, there was no such experience with the herbs and supplements provided by Mrs. McCain. If there should be a lawsuit, it should be against the federal agency allowing drugs on the market that have a list of side effects and dangers longer than the benefits. It appears that Mrs. McCain takes the ethic "first do no harm" far more seriously than the medical community does. Sincerely,
L.C.

I Am Shocked and Appalled...
Dear Sir, I am shocked and appalled at the blatant attack of the Herbal Healer Academy. It's not only an attack on the academy itself but of the PEOPLE's RIGHT TO CHOOSE especially when it comes to choosing the type of healing they wish to seek out for their own health situation.
Many find their way to alternative medical options, WHY? Because the so-called "DOCTORS" of this world don't wish to heal us. WHY? Because if they did, they would be out of business and so would the pharmaceutical companies and healthcare industry as we know it. Including insurance companies who present the biggest FRAUD. Why haven't you targeted these people, sir? After all they haven't cured "MY" ailments/disease or anyone else's I know for that matter. They just treat the symptoms. Why haven't you targeted these "doctors" for poisoning their patients--deliberately, I might add-- with KNOWN toxic substances; synthetics that have more contraindications of use than they do for the symptoms they're supposed to treat. Yet they are thrown at us as our only choice. I have yet to go to a doctor and have them PRESCRIBE something that would be of any good to my body. The Vioxx, the NSAIDS, the oxycontin, and the steroids have destroyed my body and has done NOTHING to cure my disease. I will never put another over-the-counter drug or prescribed medication into my body again. It's only been through herbs, natural supplementation and education that my body is finally able to bounce back to a considerably normal way of life. Natural supplementation has been the only thing to keep my body out of pain and now you threaten thousands of others the option to have the same! How dare you take that choice away from me and others!!! Perhaps you didn't know that Last year doctors were documented to be the third leading cause of death in the US.
I invite you to EDUCATE yourself and view my website that delves into the deceitfulness of the "MEDICAL INDUSTRY" before casting judgment on the alternative medicine websites and true healing academies. ( http://groups.msn.com/ThereforeFirstDoNOHarm : As a former healthcare professional, my thoroughly researched articles are written under the alias of "Marah." I could no longer condone the deceptive practices of the healthcare profession and so I no longer work in that capacity. MY conscience does not allow me to do so.)
One other question I would like answered too. Why haven't you sought out the fraudulent practices of the multimillion dollar industry of CANCER RESEARCH? Have you ever wondered why, despite the billions of dollars spent on cancer research over many decades, and the constant promise of a cure which is forever "just around the corner", cancer continues to increase? BECAUSE IT'S NOT PROFITABLE TO BIG BUSINESS...starting first with the doctors, current healthcare system, research industry, pharmaceutical companies etc etc etc. Talk about "DECEPTIVE" practices targeting the public!!!

The Herbal Healer Academy is only offering the public an alternative choice unlike the family doctor who does not. It is also up to the individual to choose whether or not they wish to purchase any of the products that are sold at HHA or educate themselves through the schooling that they provide. The public is not coerced in any way to purchase anything, after all, we do have free will to make such a decision. If you think that by closing down this Academy you are benefiting the public, then you are both delusional and a hypocrit since you haven't brought any law suits to the thousands of doctors that are poisoning the American public. Yes, even your own Arkansans.
One last thing. Where do you think medicine first originated from before there was an AMA, Merk, Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories, Novartis? Through accomplished herbalist healers. Ipse Dixit (The Matter Speaks for Itself) Respectfully Submitted, R.L.

Letter in Response To Your Urgent Plea
Re: Your urgent plea, I want you to know you have my prayers and support. I have been so enlightened by your courses thus far. I am in the Naturopathic Doctor program and hope to be able to complete my courses with you. I find your method of "hands on" training/teachings to be most valuable. I have written to the Arkansas Attorney General as follows:
************************************
Mike Beebe:
I am writing you to appeal to your common sense and sense of free trade in this country. This organization has helped many whom have not been able to find relief from pain or suffering elsewhere. They have helped educate on alternative and natural (and UNHARMFUL) means of health prevention. They have never HARMED anyone! If anyone should be receiving targeted harrassement and litigation for harming the American people, it should be the pharmaceutical companies who continue to harm us with their greed, the fast food companies who continue to market and feed poison to our children and the medical community who is too ignorant to see the value of alternative, complimentary means of health prevention and care.
PLEASE see the light and let Herbal Healer continue their fine work. I pray that you will be given Divine guidance and seek your soul for the answer. Thank you! Sincerely D.P.
******************************************
I hope that many more of your supporters will do the same. I pray continuously for your success next week.

It Grieves My Heart To Read About The Lawsuit...
Dear Dr.McCain, I have been a member for quite a few years now. Thank you for your monthly newsletters. It greives my heart to read about the lawsuit trying to discredit you and get rid of HHA. I will be praying for you and all the rest of your staff at HHA that God will protect and give you victory in this litigation. May TRUTH and JUSTICE prevail. G.E. from VA.

It's All About Money...
I wanted to show you the letter I sent to the Attorny Gen.-- I'm glad its staring to work--
***************************
Maybe the doctors that are claiming that Herbal Healer & others are "fake", need to take a look at modern medicine. In my opinion, it's all a bunch of crap! The Hippocratic oath states that they would teach, without fees {& it takes a fortune to attend college for a Dr.}- they claim they are "healing"- when in fact, more people die EVERY DAY from problems with medicine that they ever do with herbs -the Indians used herbs! God gave them to us for a reason -- Unless your an atheist, Surely, you believe in God -- if he didn't think our body needed herbs, he would not have given them to us. As for Dr. McCain's courses, maybe you should take them, you might learn something!!!
I have been in modern medicine for yrs & I have seen them almost kill my children & kill many others.
You don't hear of somebody "overdosing" on oregano or black pepper,
or any of the other herbs out there. Modern Medicine Doctors are jealous, because they can't understand it & can't make as much money, & that's what it boils down to.
This lawsuit isn't about the places healing --- it's a matter of the AMA and drug companies loosing money. Many people, now-a-days don't become medical doctors for anything other than money. If they wanted to heal, they wouldn't charge their terrible rates & the pharmacies (drug companies) wouldn't be marking up the prices so high. I know for a fact that the drugs prices go up at least 200% {I had an uncle that worked for a major pharmacutical company & he of course, got the medicines at a discount. A 45 cent bottle to him sold for 7.50--- all a matter of modern medicine wanting more money.} I totally support Herbal Healer Academy in these false allegations against them. P.W in Texas.

This Makes Me Very Angry...
I just found out about the lawsuit. This makes me very angry. My family has always used herbs & folk remedies from the old country. It goes back many generations. This seems like a witch-hunt. You will get thru this with much prayer and support. Keep up the good work! You are in my prayers. God bless & Take Care. M. L - Iowa

I Will Not Go To Medical Doctors... That's My Right...
Just want to provide a copy of e-mail that I sent to the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office. I hope it will help. (edited to remove the many testimonials about the HHA products - posted on testimonial page)
Mr. General Attorney State of Arkansas. I am a member of HHA since 1999. During all that time Dr. Marijah McCain provided me with lots of very useful information regarding natural medicine. Also, she provided me with very high quality products. I use them to improve my own health, and my family members’ health. HHA products are very useful, and they have very high quality. If you try these products personally Mr. General Attorney State of Arkansas you will see that these products are very useful. Only then (not before) can you express your own opinion about the quality of these products. Why in every other area do we have freedom (you can choose your religion, your party, and etc.) but in medicine you don’t have that alternative. Why has the allopathic establishment made that choice for all the American public? Why you are protecting this monopoly in medicine? This is an interesting question with far reaching consequences. Also, I want to inform you that if something happens with my health I will seek help from Marijah McCain or other natural health care provider. I will not go to Medical Doctors. I believe it is my constitutional right. Mr. General Attorney State of Arkansas please reconsider your opinion about HHA and Marijah McCain, and drop all the charges. With hope in justice S.M. from Los Angeles, CA.

Tuesday, December 17, 2002
Thank You For Your Persistance and Courage...
To Dr. McCain and or staff: Thank you so much for your persistence and knowingness to have the courage to stand in the truth. I am so grateful you are out there in the world supporting alternative wellness and broadening the consciousness of others to be able to make informed decisions with their health. I felt regretful we live in a society that you and your wonderful organization would be under such scrutiny, misconstrued information and attacks. However I send much peace in a vision that imagines the most beneficial outcome for all involved.

Suggest You Contact the ACLU !
Dr. McCain: Evidently the pharmaceutical companies are getting their money's worth from the politicians! They want control of everything, and I guess Democrat legislators are almost as bad as Republicans. I am sorry to learn of the attacks by the AG and the FDA, but there are others who are experiencing same. I just wanted to suggest you contact the ACLU to see if they could offer help or support. In the meantime, I will spread the word and try to get more letters written. This really disgusts me.

Yesterday on one of the major networks they carried a story about a 10-year old girl who had been on Ritalin for mild hyperactivity. Her doctor started her on another drug and increased it over time from 10 mg per day to 250 mg per day. The little girl died suddenly. The parents found out the drug should not even have been given to children. Further research turned up over a dozen deaths of similar children in the US during recent months. Why isn't the FDA checking into that sad story? Having an MD, I have learned, certainly is no guarantee of competency and knowledge. Best wishes for you. L.H.~AR.

Don't Quit! ~~~ We Won't, Don't Worry!!!!
Dear HHA, Just want to let you know I am one of your students and I am still praying for you. Don't quit! God can take care of them. I have enjoyed my lessons and wouldn't trade what I have learned for anything. I think Dr. McCain is a great healer and very capable of helping people. I have had help myself, when doctors couldn't help me. Thank You so much! K. C.

We Must Collectively Stop The Forces That Want Us To Succumb...
Dr. McCain, I just read the news on this site about the FDA and the animal supplements. It breaks my heart that this is happening to you, and perhaps a lot of other natural healers throughout this country. It is not so surprising, here in a capitalist society, that Big Brother is putting limitations on 'Freedom'. I truly feel that so many people will 'lose' an alternative way of life, if we don't collectively try to stop the forces that want us to be sublime, and succumb to the FDA and it's killer prescriptions. I'm sure everyone who has benefited from natural healing will support you continually. I wish you all the best! I. H.

Helping To Fight The Good Fight!
Just wanted to provide a copy of the e-mail I sent to the Arkansas Attorney General's Office. The text is as follows:

"Why are you trying to close down the Herbal Healer Academy? Dr. McCain has never hurt anyone and has helped hundreds of people with holistic remedies. As far as I understand it, a doctor's first duty is to "do no harm." Why don't you pick on the millions of doctors in this country who kill people with prescription drugs every year. I'll tell you why and everyone knows it because the medical establishment is in the business of making money, not curing people. Curing people is bad for business. You should be ashamed of yourselves, and I want you to know that your ulterior motives are revealed with every step you take to do away with or control people whose only mission is to heal. God sees what you do, and so do we." Just wanted to let you know that I'm helping to fight the good fight. Thanks for everything you do. L. R.

HHA Member Will Start Class Action Suit...
I just read the newsletter and I am beyond angry with what is happening to Dr. McCain. I called and offered my help anyway I can. I am asking any members that want to help to write, email or call me (731-584-6173). I say if the State of Arkansas can sue HHA to "protect" us, free thinking people who fully support Dr. McCain and her work, we start a class action suit against the state. I don't remember asking the state to "protect" me nor did I ask that my freedom of choice be taken away from me. This whole thing is a witch hunt and I refuse to stand by and stand quietly while HHA is shut down by the unimformed. Dr. McCain has never hurt me or mine. Her advice ( Yes I said advice, not diagnosis.) has always been helpful and informative. If it happens to HHA those of us who are herbalist, healers, etc. are next. Let's pull together and stop it NOW!
Dr. X says it's "hard ball", well go long Doc because this Medicine Woman (go ahead attack my beliefs.... I am an American Indian. is "on the War Path". I say to all HHA members let's make our voice one and send a message the State of Arkansas will understand. ~ Lea in Tennesee

They Will Never Again Have The Unquestioned Authority...
I send you all my support for the work you do and my conviction that
you will get through this legal crap unscathed. I have called the Attorney General's office in your support. This too will pass but certainly the "natives" are a little restless, no? It is a desperate act of a group that knows it's day has come. No matter what, they will never again have the unquestioned authority and god-like status that they enjoyed for so many years. Peace, I.

I Am So Disgusted...
I am so disgusted with our government constantly trying to control everything we do. I had a dog with a really bad kennel cough which wouldn't respond to the antibiotics the vet gave him. I tried putting colloidal silver in his drinking water and he was well in less than 3 days and has stayed that way. Hang in there don't let them get you down. There are thousands of us out here who are on your side. Sincerely J.P. ~ HHA Member since 2000

If It Wasn't For Dr. McCain, My Mother Would Not Be Alive Today...
Here is my email to the state of Arkansas AG office:

Dear Mr. Pryor, I have been a loyal customer of Marijah McCain since 1999. She has provided to me a lot of good information regarding natural means. I am outraged that such an accusation is just being flung around like it's a big game and that the people involved have not made informed decisions or even bothered to READ the information that is being produced. If it wasn't for DR. McCain and her information, my mother would not be alive today. She is a severe diabetic, and drugs weren't working for her. I gave her information on 4 Herb tea. Now, just because someone is given this information does not mean that information should or should not be acted on. That is a moral and ethical CHOICE of the person. I CHOOSE to use natural medicine, it goes along with my religious beliefs, it works FOR ME and my family.
Since when is informatin illegal to purchase or even to distribute? If you are going to ban her from providing GOOD information on natural medicine, you might as well work on (and I think it would be better served!!!!) eliminating the printing and distribution of the book, THE ANARCHIST COOKBOOK, in which it tells how to make a LETHAL BOMB!!!
The people who choose to use natural medicine are in a terrible situation with this, because if you take OUR RIGHT away to practice as well as USE natural medicine, other than the so-called Naturopathic Physicians trained to use harmful and INVASIVE means to treat an individual, there will be nothing left for those of us that rely on it. We might as well just go to an allopathic physician. I certainly would not want to go to an ND that suggests surgery for something that I don't neccessarily need, nor want, or take a chemical that will cause MORE problems.
I would also assume that if someone in your family, or you, came down with some terrible affliction, that might be lethal, you would probably consult a naturopathic doctor but probably keep it hush hush since you are doing this SMEAR campaign against Marijah McCain, who by the way, is doing a MUCH better job at education than most of the ALLOPATHIC doctors out there. Sincerely, B. ~ HHA member since 1999 (and will continue to be God willing!!) ~ Central Washington State.

New Student Writes...
Wow, I am overwhelmed! I am a new member having just received my first Herbology lesson yesterday. Today I have placed my order for lessons 2 thru 4 along with other essential items. I hit on the "need prayers" not knowing what all was going on. And wow. Such positive out pouring. You see for decades I have wandered and wondered what it is I want to do. I'm slow to the boat being 45 but after years of partners, friends, co-workers telling me I ought to get into the natural field, for I am always spouting off about chemicals, genetic foods and giving stress relieving backrubs, I have finally come into my own and set forth the challenge. So now I am gung-ho and I have no intention of losing the teacher I have chosen. So yes my prayers are with you. I am so very glad that I found you, for you are here to help me finally find me. Another supporter! D.H.~ California

I Will Pray Daily That Justice Prevails...
Dr. McCain, I have emailed the attorney generals stating my value of your service and the enlightenment you provide, all at prices that cannot be matched or beaten.
I will pray daily that justice prevails for you. I will also pray God will filled the attorneys' heart with His love as he removes the fear that cause the casting of such unfair accusations. With great respect and care, C.T. ~ HHA Member

Member From Kuwait Writes...
Dear Dr. McCain, I don’t have any thing more to say than what my grandfather said once in 1982. I was very small at that time but I found out what he told me was the truth...
He said (( my child grow up like a beautiful tree, with strong base and fresh fruit, wind will come every day to check on you, if you keep fresh it can remove your fruit and if you are strong it can't move you from your place, but one day a strong wind will come, be ready for that. Skip all the knowledge you have and stick with GOD. Only your prayers and your strong faith will keep you standing up even if no more fruit remains on your tree. GOD is generous will give you His hand in growing better tree))
I think what is happening to you dear, some people don’t like to see others happy or to see them winning. Stay cool, strong and have a big faith. Believe me in life... close one door in your face GOD opens thousands behind you, just stick with Him you will win. Hope to hear good news soon. D.A. ~ Kifan, Kuwait

We The Citizen's Of Arkansas Have A Right....
Sir, It is my understanding that you have initiated a law suit against Marijah McCain and the Herbal Healder Academy, trying to put them out of business. It is my understanding that you contend no one can legally 'practice' alternative medicine unless one is a licensed MD. If carried out to a logical end, this means I cannot give my own child a dose of baking soda in hot water for upset stomach, nor can I give them lemon juice and honey in hot water for sore throat, because I am not licensed. Isn't this a little ridiculous? We, the citizens of Arkansas, have a right to learn how to treat ourselves without the intervention of MDs. We have a right to learn how to do this. The Herbal Healer Academy gives us an option to do so.
My grandmother was healed of uterine cancer almost 50 years ago - without the aid of MD treatment. She had to go to Canada to do so. (Her cancer was diagnosed and documented in the U.S.) The MD she saw there used herbal extractions for her treatment. 25 years after her cancer was ended, she had surgery in Michigan to tie her uterus back in place. A team of doctors were in the operating room, just to view the uterus. They confirmed the fact that she had scar tissue from the cancer - but no signs of cancer. And it did not return! This is better than our conventional medicine can do! Unfortunately, when the doctor treating my grandmother died, his clinic was vandalised, and all trace of his treatment destroyed. We believe it the hand of traditional medical forces. I would like to see citizens of the U.S. have the same chance to recover as my grandmother had. And this will never happen as long as persons in your position try to squelch the sharing of information among interested parties. I beg you to drop this suit. Please do not be a pawn in the hands of the AMA. M. D. ~ Arkansas

Words Of Comfort From HHA Member...
Dear Dr. McCain: I am so sorry for what you are being put through. I am praying for your highest outcome. When I am stressed (but it should be always!) I say to myself, "The Presence of God goes before me and makes easy and gentle my way". This helps me keep focused on what is truth in life. I appreciate all you are doing. You have been a great source of information for dealing with my children's health as gently and naturally as possible. For this I am very, very grateful. Sincerely, C.S.

I Am Very Pleased With HHA Courses...
Good Afternoon, First let me say that HHA is in our prayers regarding this recent, unfounded and incredibly ridiculous attack made by Mr. Pryor and his associates. Having went to the AG website for the state of Arkansas it seems that we're dealing with an infantile ego maniac, God help him. Secondly, let me say that I am very pleased with the courses, the level of quality and accurate information that HHA has supplied to me over the last year and upon completion will display with confidence the N.D. Certificate issued by HHA. I believe in HHA and what Dr. McCain has clearly proven by her experience and the experience of her clients that Natural Medicine works with out harm to restore wellness. God Bless, D. Y., a grateful student of HHA.

I Am Proud To Be An HHA Member! Thank You
Thank you for ALL OF THE INFORMATION you have taught over the years on natural healing! I believe in you as well as my family. I have forwarded your 'case' information to other 'freedom fighting' organizations in hopes of gaining more support against the state! I pray that you will win this! Again, thank you for developing HHA! I am proud to be a member! R.

Member Since 1999 Writes...
Dear Dr. McCain: I just wanted to let you know of my support of you and Herbal Healer Academy during this trying time. I have been a member for several years, as well as a student of yours. I find your courses to be excellent, with information and a wholistic viewpoint that is not found elsewhere. I believe that the allopathic medical system is on the attack right now. They apparently are scared silly that so many of us are being empowered to utilize natural medicine and become less dependent on them. Just recently, I had occassion to be in an allopath's office for my daughter. This doctor is a D.O. and I have known him for years. In the past, he has always been very open to natural medicine and has, in fact, prescribed herbs and vitamins often in his treatments! However, on this occassion, he caught me completely by surprise by being openly hostile toward natural medicine!! He cautioned me against using "all these herbs" and indicated how dangerous they were! Then, I heard how you were being prosecuted and I began to wonder what was going on. I think we are hitting them in the wallet and they are fighting back! Those of us who have used natural medicine know how effective it is and we stand with you and will continue to do so. May YHWH bless you and the Academy. J.R.

Naturopathic Doctors... Naturopathic Physicians... There is TWO categories!
To whom it may concern, My name is R.C, and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Holistic Health Practitioner, CranioSacral Therapist, and educator in Hendersonville, North Carolina. I have been a long time supporter of the rights of Naturopathic physicians, but you need to understand that there is a difference between Naturopathic physicians and Naturopathic counselors/consultants and Traditional Naturopath. Technically, the word Naturopath means "to treat disease by natural means". Traditional Naturopaths support the body's natural healing abilities by providing nutritional and wellness counseling, hands on healing (massage, craniosacral, reiki), and other therapeutic modalities. Naturopathic physicians are PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS who complete four years of undergraduate training, and four years of graduate training, and become licensed as physicians in some states. There is a difference. To prosequte Herbal Healer Academy for training Traditional Naturopathy is ludicrous and does nothing but promote a monopoly against Holistic and Wellness oriented health care and education which has been supported by the American Medical Association for so long. It is lawsuits like this that limited the practice of Chiropractic physicians for so long, and Osteopaths as well. Please reconsider this. Sincerely, R.C., LMBT, CHHP

There Are So Many Of Us That Need What You Offer...
Dear Dr. McCain: I was appalled to hear that you are being sued by the attny. gen. I am in agreement, though that God must have something really big for you if you are going through such an absurd period of time. There are so many of us who need what you offer. I want to express my gratitude for everything you do...sticking your neck out for those of us who might not have the strength or knowledge of what to do and how to do it. I, too wrote an e-mail to support you, and even more, my prayers are with you. Keep the faith for yourself, and for us! T.

Letter to Arkansas Attorney General from Nevada
Dear Mr. Pryor, Mr. Davis, and Mr. Plegge, The country is in a state of war. Anxiety is running rampart with regard to biological warfare. And what is the state of Arkansas doing in this national time of crisis? The state of Arkansas is suing Dr. Marijah McCain! The reason? ... to protect the people. This is just as logical as a scene in the movie called Joe Somebody (if you haven't yet seen this newest release, please rush to your nearest video store and watch it ... being sure to note the scene which I am about to describe to you) in which you hear a commercial advertising a pharmaceutical drug. The velvety, mesmerizing voice beckons one and all to take this drug which promises to cure you of ..................... but also warns you of twenty or thirty possible side effects - death being listed as one of the possibilities! When you see this movie, I promise that you will laugh at this scene. Why do we all laugh at this scene? We laugh because there is truth lying under the irony. Visit your local bookstore and purchase a copy of the book entitled The Pill Book (ISBN# 0-553-57971-1). At $8.95 this book is probably one of the best investments that you will ever make! Browse through the book taking note of all the side effects (serious ones!!!) listed for all the pharmaceutical drugs. I ask you, the State of Arkansas: Who is harming whom?
From my vantage point in Nevada, you are siding with the pharmaceutical companies (money speaks, you know, and weak people fold) against us. Who is "us"? .... you ask. "Us" is we, the people of the United States of America. Because of ludicrous situations like the state of Arkansas VS Dr. Marijah McCain, we the people are being forced to resort to powerful drugs with numerous, multifaceted side effects because you, the state of Arkansas, feel it is your duty to protect us from Dr. Mariah McCain! I urge you to remember that Americans are a people passionate for freedom. Leave us with our freedom - or give us death .... which will surely come sooner for all of us in a few years when all the good people with God-given gifts for healing are eradicated and we have only the pharmaceutical companies to turn to. I urge you to reconsider your position. Take a stand for the good side - be strong - stand, not against us, but with us.
At the end of my appeal to you, in Arkansas, who (quite unfairly!) are deciding the fate of the rest of us in other states, I would like to give you my testimonial. A Christian friend told me about Dr. McCain a year ago. I dislike anything having to do with the Internet so I ignored her every time that she brought the subject up. I am a school librarian here in Nevada and last November I became very, very ill. I had severe headaches and neckaches. My nerves were frayed and they simply couldn't be frayed because I was the only one with a job (my husband has been sick for a long time) and my mother has Alzheimer's disease. I suffered through last year, visiting several doctors (MD doctors) and attempting herbal/vitamin/natural food cures on my own. No success. I just got worse. I finally listened to my friend. I called Dr. Marijah McCain. Now comes the interesting part. You ruined my chances of obtaining her expert advice. I had to rely on my friend's advice on what to order. And guess what? Two days after taking Dr. Marijah's herbs and vitamins, I was well. Completely well, I tell you! No headache, no neckache .... no frayed nerves. This wouldn't have happened without Dr. Marijah McCain. She truly has a gift .... a healing gift .... God-given, you know. Who are you to stop the flow of a God-given gift?
Now I say to you .... don't say "no" to God. As you read this letter, all three of you are probably (by the grace of God) in a state of good health. If you become sick .... very sick (also by the hand of God), ask yourself: Do I trust the pharmaceutical companies? If you pursue this present course of action any further, you will remember this letter and you will be anguished that you shut off this avenue of healing for you and your loved ones. Why don't you take a trip up to Mountain View? Visit with Dr. Marijah McCain (if she will forgive you). Talk with her about her healing mission. Settle things the Arkansas way .... the country way .... do not forsake the folk healing heritage on which your state prides itself. Do not go to point fingers and accuse. Go humbly with an open spirit to learn. Forty-nine of us (Nevada and all the rest of the states) are counting on you to do the right thing. The right thing is to be WITH the people .... let us choose our way. Thank you for listening to my appeal. J.G ~ Nevada

HHA Student Writes HHA
Thanks for making your classes available to us. I took the herbal course and loved it. I couldn't find that kind of info anywhere else and I had looked. I want to be able to take other courses you offer. Please let me know if there is any way to help. The info you provide is a great educational help to many of us who don't know a lot about herbs but want to learn. May God always be on your side. We will pray that the lawsuit be dropped.

American Reiki Institute Director Asks AG To Drop Charges!
To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Dr. David Hanson. I am one of the Directors of the American Reiki Institute, a Washington State educational corporation. I am also the Vice President of the Association for Thought Field Therapy. In both my professional capacity and in a personal capacity as a solitary citizen, I am urging you to drop your suits again Dr. McCain. After having read your reasons for this action, I have concluded that the ONLY reason such complain would be lodged is that you are either A) ignorant of the actual facts involved in your assertions or B) attempting to persecute a gifted and contributing member of the alternative healthcare community because you simply don't understand what she does or how she does it, or C) are acting as the puppets of the allopathic medical community who feel threatened by any ideology different than their own. Luckily, I live in a progressive state where the progressive thinkers have recognized that value of alternative health care. And, in fact, what Dr.McCain truly supports is not actually ALTERNATIVE health care but rather is ORIGINAL or TRADITIONAL healthcare. The allopathic medical model didn't appear in our lives until a little more than 100 years ago. Prior to that time, healthcare drew its treatments from more natural sources. What is practiced today by MD's is CHEMICAL MEDICINE - harsh chemicals and treatments. Certainly such medicine has its place in our world.BUT SO DOES THE MORE NATURAL METHODOLOGIES of which Dr. McCain is a proponent. Your assertions against Dr. McCain are not only arrogant and uninformed, they are also mindless and bigotted. Please do some studying, pull the MDs out of your ears, and rethink your position. Very, very sincerely, Dr. David Hanson - Visit our AMERICAN REIKI INSTITUTE site at http://www.americanreikiinstitute.com

AG Pryor, You Might Best Appoligize To The People Of Arkansas...
Dear Marijah McCain: I do not know you, but I support you in this terrible attack by the Attorney General of Arkansas. Follows is a copy of the letter I mailed to AG Pryor.
*********************
Dear Attorney General Pryor: It has come to my attention that you are suing a couple of Arkansas Naturopaths, one being Marijah McCain. While I do not know, nor have I used the services of Marijah McCain, I am a user of and great supporter of natural means, including prayer, anointing with oil and laying on of the hands, for the purpose of maintaining good health and for healing when the need arises.
I have come near death more than once by treatment applied by allopathic physicians. While I realize their necessity in emergencies, at the very best when I am forced to avail myself of their services, it takes me months to recover my health from the damage their chemical drugs and symptomatic treatment do to my body. I was introduced to natural care in the early 70s after almost being wiped out by traditional medicine. I rapidly recovered and have relied on nature to cure me since. Not once has natural health care harmed me, but just the opposite -- restored and maintained my health.
I am appalled and greatly disappointed at your attack on natural health care and your very evident ignorance of the vast number of people in Arkansas and the U. S., who use natural health means and practitioners instead of, or in conjunction with allopathic means of staying and getting well. You are running for office dear sir! I have voted a straight Democratic ticket from the first time I voted. I have been your supporter from the moment I learned of your run for the Senate. Unless you drop these lawsuits against these natural practitioners quickly, someone else will get my vote in December. It is my belief that you might best publicly apologize the people of Arkansas. Otherwise you have blown your chances for election by this attack on natural medicine, its practitioners, and its users.
I realize you will not read this letter. I do hope the employee who does, informs you of the Health Freedom Coalition forming to get laws passed similar to those recently passed in California and Minnesota. The people of this state will add Arkansas to the growing number of states working to assure the rights of natural health providers to practice freely, and of people to make their own choices about their method of health care. Others are already working on the national level. Arkansas citizens will join in there also. Sincerely, M.C. ~ Arkansas Voter.

Long Time Member of HHA is Very Angry!
Dear Dr. McCain, I have been purchasing from you for years and have been a member since 1996. I have been doing a lot of phone calling for you and have informed the State of Arkansas that I would ask that the Attorney General be charged with murder IF my mother is not able to get supplies from you and she dies because of it. I informed them I would drive down and secure a citizens arrest if need be. K. from IN.

Refund All Her Attorney's Fees, Apologize and Hope She...
Attn: Mark Pryar, AG; Lamar Davis, Asst. AG, Brian Brooks and Judge John Plegge.
This letter is in support of DR. (in most states, and some countries) McCain of Herbal Healer Academy. The charges brought against her are false; she has never done even one of the things she is charged with. I have been getting her catalog for five years now, and have used the WEB for the last four of those years. I have never seen an ad of hers stating you could complete her course in two weeks. Nor any of the other charges made against her. Please dismiss the charges, refund to her all the Attorney fees she has had to pay because of this case, apologize, and hope she keeps her business in the state of Arkansas, and continues to pay taxes. Thank you for your attention. I. J. ~ A Registered Arkansas Voter

Dr. McCain... Have To Tell You God Is About To...
I have something in my heart that I really feel I must say to you, so please hear me out.
I really feel impressed in my heart, and even more in my spirit, that God is about to work something mighty in your life that you've never seen before. These problems are coming because He is about to take you to a whole new and higher level in which your company is going to get stronger and even greater. You are going to reach even more people throughout the entire earth. You will be a new beacon of light to so many more people who thought that there was no other way. Whatever their unanswered question is in health and other areas, you will be the answer that God presents to them. My Pastor always tells us that when the times seem the hardest, that's when the devil is getting stomping mad because he knows that God is getting ready to work a major miracle in your life and He's going to totally bless your socks off! He is trying to block the answer, but if you hold strong and don't give up and keep trusting in God and in His power, the breakthrough will come!! And I'm a living witness that this is true! There's been many times when I gave up before my blessing was able to break through all the mess, but no more! I won't allow myself to be robbed again because I will stay strong in the power that God has given me, and I encourage you to do the same, because God has a special call on your life. You are going to help even more people, and, mark my words, you will make history in more ways than one! Amen. I love you so much, and I'm here in Houston backing you 100%. Keep the faith, fight the power, and you go, my sista! God will continue to bless you and empower you. P.
*******
Dr. McCain's Comments. Thank you my dear friend, and to anyone reading this letter sent to me, this letter is also for YOU too. Don't give up, no matter how tough things seem in your life, I really believe that God will see us through to Victory! Fight the Good Fight!

Dr. McCain, You Are My Doctor...
Dear Dr. McCain, We just wanted to let you know you are a once in a lifetime Teacher and Healer. You are my doctor and my families doctor. The Herbal Healer Academy has educated me and my family and friends. Your knowledge in the naturopathic area has saved my life. I was diagnosed with a cancerous breast tumor. Thanks to your website and catalog I am well again. Now I will continue with my studies. Thank you for standing up. Our Prayers and thoughts are with you.
(MAY THE PEACE AND BLESSING OF OUR CREATOR BE WITH YOU ALWAYS). C.S. and Family

Arkansas Starts Movement Towards Health Freedom
Dear MR. Pryor: What happened to the front page news about you suing HERBAL HEALER ACADEMY? Was it too embarrassing, you know, running for public office and everything?
Did you hear what happened in California on September 24, 2002. THE HEALTH FREEDOM BILL WAS PASSED. We're going to have one here too, so you may as well stop your PERSECUTION of Herbal Healer Academy and other natural health care providers in this state. It will be a great deal of wasted taxpayer's dollars for nothing. And when they realized how you wasted their money, they're really going to be mad.
You must read "White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy." WHCCAMP - Final Report. Pay particular attention to #4 and #7 please. Your even out of line with the government.

You might want to consider keeping up with the times and inform yourself what happened in California September 24, 2002. Alternative Health Care Treatments Now Legal In CA New Health Freedom Bill Sign Do you think the California people are the only people in the U.S. wanting FREEDOM TO CHOOSE where it comes to healthcare? That would be foolish on your part.

We here in Arkansas have started a coalition for a Health Care Freedom Bill. Keep your eyes out for it. You are not representing the people of Arkansas, who exactly are you representing? All of us would like to know this.
There are a couple of other documents you might be interested in reading. Historical Documents:THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES Historical Documents:THE BILL OF RIGHTS Historical Documents: Declaration of Independence You'll find these at The Library of Congress THOMAS -- U.S. Congress on the Internet
Another source you might find interesting is "The Bible". I would appreciate your comments on this lawsuit and I will expect a written explanation in the mail. As I am one of your constituents, I do believe I have a right to know. I do like to keep informed on things concerning myself, my family, my community and my nation. This is still "Our" nation correct? I will be expecting your response within the next couple of weeks. T.B. ~ Arkansas

I Am Native American and Herbal Healing is a Religion...
Dear Dr. Mc Cain, Keep your chin up, I will pray for you always. I think that it is tragic when the government refuses to open their eyes and see the truth. Herbal healing for me is a religion and not a medicinal issue. I am native american and have always believed in mother earth first and using the old and proven ways to the ways that were devised by man. Man tends to pervert what nature has given them and make some pretty terrible things in the process. Stand fast and your faith and goodness will be rewarded!!!!!!! R.F.

I Will Be Backing Marijah McCain Against This Evil...
Mr. Attorney General Pryor: I happen to know about the evil scheme against herbal medicine. It's a proven fact that herbal medicine has worked for thousands of years. So, why are you picking on Marijah McCain of the Herbal Healer Academy who is trying to do good for the benefit of the human race????? May GOD have mercy on your soul for the people you injure by denying them access to their medicine!! I'll be backing Marijah against this evil to the best of my ability.
Cheers, A.G.

If Not For HHA My Father Would Have Died...
Dear Dr. McCain, My apologies for not contacting you sooner!!! I have been in the progress of moving from FL to PA for the past 2 months, and have only recently gotten my internet connection. I was shocked when I read about the lawsuit against you and Herbal Healer Academy. This lawsuit is outrageous, a waste of taxpayers money, as well totally baseless. If it were not for you, my father would have died from colon cancer last year. I have only been a member a short while, but I have learned so much from the few courses I have been able to take. Herbal Healer has completely changed my life for the better and the lives of my family. I will be sending the Arkansas Attorney General an email expressing these thoughts as well. My prayers are with you. God bless. PR

These Letters Give Me Faith In Our Fellow Man...
Dear Dr. McCain, When I go to the website and read the letters from people around the country/world it gives me faith in our fellow man...it's our government that scares me...you've been warning everyone that this was going to happen...all in the name of profits and power...shame on them. I pray that you are feeling better and are also bolstered by the outpouring of love and faith that so many have in you...you are truly an exceptional person and when the time comes and you need our support know that there will be many standing beside you in your time of need and our collective prayers will be answered, there is too much opposition they can't win this. Keep fighting the good fight and be well body mind & soul... J.

An Upset Member Writes the AG on Behalf of the Animals
Dr. McCain, this is the letter I sent to the Attorney General:
VOICE FOR ALL THE VOICELESS! (OUR FUR BABIES)
******************
I am writing on behalf of the INSANE things that are being said about Dr. McCain. She is working for GOD, not the devil like you are. I am sick of everyone in this world being brainwashed into thinking their doctor is some sort of GOD. Telling you how long you have to live, certain vaccinations are mandatory, etc. Conventional doctors keep the HEART BEATING just long enough to suck you penniless. I don't think of Dr. McCain as God but she is doing His work. GET A BIBLE AND READ IT!!! She is educating people on other options out there in order for us to take care of our own health. That is all she is doing. PERSONAL CHOICE! I didn't have a personal choice when my precious dog started having seizures in 1997 and I took her to 9 different Vets and told them all that I think she needed was something natural. I didn't have the EDUCATION. They did not give me the CHOICE of saving her, instead they drugged her until she died. SEIZURES WERE ALL A MYSTERY TO THEM. If I would of had a computer I would of found Dr. McCain's website. I am a student of Dr. McCain's and what I know now would of saved her, instead she died at 7 1/2 years old all because of POWER and GREED. I have to live with that every day that I trusted a Vet that was only working for the pharmaceutical companies to get rich. This is your WAKE UP CALL! The BODY IS DESIGNED TO HEAL ITSELF! What comes around goes around! One day you or someone you love will need to make a decision between prolonging LIFE or DEATH. If you make the decision to use conventional medicine, there is a good chance it will be DEATH. Everyone I know that used CHEMOTHERAPY and RADIATION is DEAD. That is not very good odds. But that is your choice to choose. RESPECT PEOPLE, MONEY, AND THINGS IN THAT ORDER! THINK FOR YOURSELF! I STAND BEHIND DR. McCAIN 100%! P.S. It took me 6 months to do two courses. C

Dr. McCain is Honest, and Sincere and Shares Her Knowledge...
Dear Mr. Lamar Davis, Marijah McCain is an honest, sincere woman who has shared her vast knowledge of health and natural treatments with a lot of people in need. She does quite a bit of good and does not deserve to be persecuted for her good deeds. Perhaps you should be prosecuting the pharmaceutical companies for the 100,000 + deaths they cause in this country every year. Include the MDs that prescribe the killer drugs. Please see the case in objective terms. She is not a criminal. Free speech is our guarantee in this country. Thank you.

Courses and Herbal Supplies Have Enriched Our Lives...
Thanks to you Dr McCain, the courses and herbal supplies I have taken have enriched my life (and husband) to where we can enjoy our retirement years and not be sick like alot of others our age. My husband and I have always felt safe taking your herbal supplies and cannot see why anyone would want to sue you for fraudulent activity. I hope and pray you will get through this turbulant time because without your courses and herbal supplements, it will hurt alot of people. K.E.

Dr. McCain Wants You To See This! California Leads The Nation...
Today, September 24, 2002, is a very important date in Health Freedom History. For today, California Governor Gray Davis signed into law the most important Health Freedom bill in world history - California SB 577. The paragraph below contains PART of the language in the bill. For Californians, section (c), below makes health care "wide open." Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Nutritionists, etc., are now free to offer services, without harassment. It's OVER for standard Allopathic care in North America.

Thank You For Saving My Life... HHA Member Since 1999
DEAR MARIJAH, I Want to offer my thanks again for saving my life 3 years ago. Without your company's effective products, my outlook would have been grim, as the sulphur based antibiotics prescribed by my doctor did not help alleve the ulcerative colitis I was suffering from. The information from your catalogue and website is also life saving. The benefits of charcoal alone has saved me from trips to the emergency room. The products you sell are 100% as stated. Maybe these people who are suing you have not heard of the commandment; thou shall not bear false witness! I am outraged over this latest attack on you and naturopathic medicine. I am writing to the attorney general on your behalf. They should be investigating the chemotherapy industry with their 15% success rate as aired on NBC news expose over 10 years ago! D.H.

A Prayer From An HHA Member
Marijah: I am a student of naturopathy and purchase supplies from your organization from time to time. I am truly sorry that you are going through this trying time. As a christian, I would like for you to read and keep dear to your heart the passage of Isaiah 54:17 in the Bible "No hand formed against me shall prosper, even in court cases". My prayer for you is that God will lead you through this wilderness experience quickly and that Godly laborers will go before the State officials and educate them about the art and science of naturopathy. God Bless! Y.T. HHA Member - 2002

Thank You HHA and Dr. McCain
Dear Dr. McCain, I just wanted to let you know that I am so grateful to you and pray that you will over come the trials you are now facing... When I came home from a divorce about 5 years ago I was very sick and weak and emotionally overwrought.. I found your ad in a magazine and decided to see what you were all about.. I am currently a student and have only four more classes until I am finished with the program ... I am so excited and thank my Heavenly Father every day for the wonderful opportunity to learn all I can what will help people to get well not just feel a little better for awhile before being hit with something even worse.. If not for you and the school I feel that I would certainly be dead... L.W. HHA Member since 1997

Houston Member Writes About RIGHTS!
September 20, 2002
Good Day, I am writing regarding the case currently being brought against Dr. Marijah McCain, and The Herbal Healer Academy, Case number CV 2002 008480. I won't waste your time adding my voice to the hundreds of others who I am sure have called and written to you expressing their disgust regarding this horrendous attack and attempted violation of the rights of citizens of the United States to choose how we care for our own bodies. Needless to say, I am appalled that the State of Arkansas and Mr. Pryor would even consider such a ridiculous lawsuit. You obviously have not spent much time learning what Dr. McCain's work is all about, or her credentials. One would think that the health and protection of rights of the citizens of Arkansas would be of concern to the Attorney General's office.
I will however write to make a few suggestions regarding the case. I suggest it is the right of Dr. McCain, and the citizens of Arkansas to seek or ask nutritional advice, counsel, information, assessments, recommendations, evaluations, tests, and/or treatment(s), regimen(s), or modality(s) from the nutritionist(s) or doctor(s) of their choice for any health reason or purpose.
I suggest it is the right of Dr. McCain, and the citizens of Arkansas to select or reject any individual(s) as their personal nutritionist(s) whether that individual be a Medical Doctor, Naturopathic Physician, Osteopath, Nutripath, Chiropractor, Nutritional
Consultant, Dietitian, Herbalist, Natural Health Practitioner, Health Food Store Salesperson, Friend, Neighbor, Relative, and/or anyone from the general public who has, or has not, any known formal training, claimed knowledge, education, insights, and/or qualifications of a nutritionist.
I suggest it is the right of Dr. McCain, and the citizens of Arkansas to freedom of choice in medicine in it's most liberal construction including the right to choose their own diet, obtain, purchase, and/or use any treatment, therapy, regimen, modality, herb, food, medicine, and/or health product for any health condition they have or may have as evaluated by themselves, the doctor, nutritionist, and/or therapist of their choice.

I further suggest that your actions indicate that the State of Arkansas, by and through Mark Pryor, is intentionally interfering with the free exercise of the rights reserved to her, and the citizens of Arkansas, under the 9th Amendment of the U.S. CONSTITUTION, as enumerated in this document. That Mark Pryor may be subject to civil and/or criminal penalties pursuant to
TITLE 42, UNITED STATES CODE, Sections 1983, 1985, and 1986, and/or TITLE 18, UNITED STATES CODE, Sections 241 and 242.
Since this case is in the "discovery" phase, I even further suggest you discover the Constitution of the United States and the United States Code, as stated below.
Ninth Amendment - Unenumerated Rights. The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
TITLE 42, CHAPTER 21, SUBCHAPTER I, Sec. 1983. Sec. 1983. - Civil action for deprivation of rights. Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia, Sec. 1985. - Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights (1) Preventing officer from performing duties. If two or more persons in any State or Territory conspire to prevent, by force, intimidation, or threat, any person from accepting or holding any office, trust, or place of confidence under the United States, or from discharging any duties thereof; or to induce by like means any officer of the United States to leave any State, district, or place, where his duties as an officer are required to be performed, or to injure him in his person or property on account of his lawful discharge of the duties of his office, or while engaged in the lawful discharge thereof, or to injure his property so as to molest, interrupt, hinder, or impede him in the discharge of his official duties;
(2) Obstructing justice; intimidating party, witness, or juror. If two or more persons in any State or Territory conspire to deter, by force, intimidation, or threat, any party or witness in any court of the United States from attending such court, or from testifying to any matter pending therein, freely, fully, and truthfully, or to injure such party or witness in his person or property on account of his having so attended or testified, or to influence the verdict, presentment, or indictment of any grand or petit juror in any such court, or to injure such juror in his person or property on account of any verdict, presentment, or indictment lawfully assented to by him, or of his being or having been such juror; or if two or more persons conspire for the purpose of impeding, hindering, obstructing, or defeating, in any manner, the due course of justice in any
State or Territory, with intent to deny to any citizen the equal protection of the laws, or to injure him or his property for lawfully enforcing, or attempting to enforce, the right of any person, or class of persons, to the equal protection of the laws;
(3) Depriving persons of rights or privileges. If two or more persons in any State or Territory conspire or go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another, for the purpose of depriving, either directly or indirectly, any person or class of persons of the equal protection of the laws, or of equal privileges and immunities under the laws; or for the purpose of preventing or hindering the constituted authorities of any State or Territory from giving or securing to all persons within such State or Territory the equal protection of the laws; or if two or more persons conspire to prevent by force, intimidation, or threat, any citizen who is lawfully entitled to vote, from giving his support or advocacy in a legal manner, toward or in favor of the election of any lawfully qualified person as an elector for President or Vice President, or as a Member of Congress of the United States; or to injure any citizen in person or property on account of such support or advocacy; in any case of conspiracy set forth in this section, if one or more persons engaged therein do, or cause to be done, any act in furtherance of the object of such conspiracy, whereby another is injured in his person or property, or deprived of having and exercising any right or privilege of a citizen of the United States, the party so injured or deprived may have an action for the recovery of damages occasioned by such injury or deprivation, against any one or more of the conspirators
Sec. 1986. - Action for neglect to prevent. Every person who, having knowledge that any of the wrongs conspired to be done, and mentioned in section 1985 of this title, are about to be committed, and having power to prevent or aid in preventing the commission of the same, neglects or refuses so to do, if such wrongful act be committed, shall be liable to the party injured, or his legal representatives, for all damages caused by such wrongful act, which such person by reasonable diligence could have prevented; and such damages may be recovered in an action on the case; and any number of persons guilty of such wrongful neglect or refusal may be joined as defendants in the action; and if the death of any party be caused by any such wrongful act and neglect, the legal representatives of the deceased shall have such action therefore, and may recover not exceeding $5,000 damages therein, for the benefit of the widow of the deceased, if there be one, and if there be no widow, then for the benefit of the next of kin of the deceased. But no action under the provisions of this section shall be sustained which is not commenced within one year after the cause of action has accrued.
TITLE 18, UNITED STATES CODE, Sec. 241. - Conspiracy against rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured - They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap,aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
Sec. 242. - Deprivation of rights under color of law. Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Myself, and many others, are keeping careful vigil on this case. Be advised that the rights of those involved will be guarded and protected to the best of our ability. Sincerely, L.K. Houston

Mr. Pryor... I Am Offended By What You Are Doing To Me And Others...
Dear Mr. Pryor, Attorney General,
I am writing this letter on behalf of Dr. McCain and Herbal Healer Academy. What century are we living in? I feel as though I have traveled back in time to the Medieval times when Witch Hunts were in full force and a lot of "INNOCENT" people were persecuted, sir that is exactly what is going on here. Dr. McCain is being persecuted in the fullest sense of the word. I have read all the letters that have been posted on the HHA website from people who respect and believe in Dr. McCain and her work for the good of all. I don't know what is driving your ambition to persecute her but I have a good idea, MONEY!!! By putting natural medicine out of business those in the western medicine field have a bigger profit margin and can line the pockets of you and your cohorts even deeper...too bad if you are offended by what I say here...I'm offended by what you are doing to me and others...it's our right to choose what course of medicine we want...I choose to use what GOD has put here on this earth to heal me, not what is devised in a laboratory and is the #3 killer of all time...Get real or you're going to find yourself on the wrong side of the coin so to speak...one day you may be faced with an illness that is NOT being healed with synthetic medications that are developed in a laboratory and you may at that time find yourself with no other alternative than to try natural medicine which more times than not will heal you...if there isn't so much evil inside, than nothing can help you.
I have been a member of HHA and a student of her naturopathic course. Never once has she misrepresented herself or HHA, the course material is first rate and the herbs/products are the finest. I have had several problems that have been healed due to her expertise and quality products. I have also been able to help others by what I have learned here.
You need to do what is right and that is to drop this frivolous and baseless lawsuit against Dr. McCain and HHA so that the many people like me can continue to benefit from natural medicine... God help you and the others that stand with you on this.... J. ~ HHA Member since 1999

You Are On The Side Of "Right"...
Dear Dr. McCain, I am sending you $100 even though I am now retired because you are on the side of "right", and there are not many of you left. Hang in there and do not be discouraged. I know there will be a lot of help for you coming from this world and the spirit plane.
You will prevail! Sincerely, G. HHA Member since 1996
