While I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting Amanda Mary Jewell, I have spoken to her online (and video) and thought her story worth sharing with my audience.
Amanda, who goes by Mary, is an independent English cancer researcher, an alternative health adviser and no friend to the UK’s “Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)” (our equivalent to the FDA). She is at odds with them because she’s chosen to swim against the stream and promote two controversial, but well known, controversial cancer-fighting foods: apricot seeds and apple seeds. These two supplements have been lifesaving for many patients around the world, according to many in the holistic community.
(She also treats patients in the late stages of cancer with the Miracle Mineral Solution and just like with mainstream treatments, sadly, not everyone survives. MMS, used for over 70 years by holistic practitioners, is a strong remedy which critics call “industrial bleach” likely because it’s made of chlorine dioxide, which can be toxic in high doses.)However, are the complaints against her justified or is she actually in trouble because she’s a holistic doctor? Well, according to the MHRA, promoting the two types of seeds as health foods breaches the following acts:
- Fraud Act 2006: falsely representing a product. In Mary’s case, the government refuses to acknowledge that apricot kernels can help treat cancer.
- The Cancer Act of 1939: prohibits anyone from making any advertisements that have to do with unapproved cancer treatments.
- The Nutritional and Health Claims of England Regulations 2007
- The Consumer Protection and Unfair Trading Regulations of 2008
- The Human Medicines Regulation of 2012
- The Supplements England Regulations of 2003
- The Organic Products Regulation of 2009
But, Mary, who is currently working at La Flor Dela Salud, a holistic healing center for chronic disease sufferers in Mexico, isn’t deterred:
