Diane Ladd is an ordained minister, (Reverend Rose), having presided over baptisms, weddings, and funerals. She has also worked with some of the most renowned doctors in our country sharing the art of healing and medical intuitive work. Diane says that she can entertain you and if it makes you sick- she can possibly heal you and if that doesn’t work by gosh, she can bury you!..... ….. So she is perhaps a very good friend to have.

Ms. Ladd, (even though her grandmother, Rose Schmitt, from Germany was Jewish,) was raised Catholic, and is an ardent student of Kabala. Diane is an ordained minister in I.G.A.S (International General Assembly of Spiritualists) an organization of multi-nondenominational Christian Churches. She received her Nutritional Certificate from the state of Florida, and has worked with some of our country's renowned doctors and hospitals for more than twenty years.

Diane's monthly suggestions; “In order to find a CURE, you MUST find the CAUSE.”

If you have a Health Opportunity due to illness - get more than one opinion - Ask Questions - And, choose a doctor who will work “with you” to help YOU heal yourself! Make sure that the medicine prescribed to “Cure You,” won’t “Kill You,” with side effects . . . now, or in the future.

It's shocking that the University Medical Education usually consists of at least seven years, which yet in many cases, sometimes only includes “two weeks” of nutritional training - if that! Finally, when the Surgeon General of the United States declared with the statement;

“A Balanced Diet can Help Prevent Cancer!”

Suddenly, the world of Vitamins and Nutrition began to receive closer attention and somewhat more respect. Please refer to the recent May Issue Cover of the Magazine, Life Extension which states:

“Three Million NEEDLESS CANCER DEATHS . . . Courtesy of FDA”

What is the F.D.A. doing…..disallowing certain herbs, and certain alternative modalities that can help, to be used legally in our country while, indeed they allow Big Pharmaceutical Companies to sell PRESCRIPTIONS (AND VIA MEDICAL DOCTORS) AND ADVERTISE RIGHT ON TELEVISION, IN FRONT OF OUR CHILDREN….THAT CAN ACTUALLY “KILL” YOU!?

“Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution the time will come when medicine will become an undercover dictatorship”
Dr. Benjamin Rush
Signer of the Declaration of Independence, 1787

CUT POISON BURN is a searing film that illuminates the grim truth about America's so-called War on Cancer. This thought-provoking documentary takes on the forces that have conspired to thwart meaningful advances in cancer research and treatment over the past century. These forces include the federal government (in its effort to label and persecute innovators as quacks), drug companies eager to suppress alternative treatments and powerful industry organizations that place profit over human lives. The story centers on the Navarro’s, a family struggling to keep their young son alive. As the personal meets the political, we see how the FDA holds a vise-like grip on treatment options. Heart wrenching and informative, the film ultimately expresses hope that we can create a new paradigm of prevention, medical freedom and acceptance of highly tailored therapies to usher in a more enlightened era.

Thanking you in advance for your graciousness in giving this message your attention. Most sincerely,
Diane Ladd

Last week, my nine-year-old Grandson was watching a beautifully filmed T.V. Commercial selling a prescription to help you SLEEP . . . It was a lovely commercial….meant to be soooo soothing . . . however some little words were spoken midst the helpful beauty …. That this “Prescription, while you were getting that wonderful longed for night’s sleep, could actually cause: (probably unknown to you when it was happening) Tongue swelling! Choking! Seizure! Heart Attack and even death!?

(Staring at TV, horrified - high pitched fearful voice, )
NANA! …. Would YOU ever take that medicine?
(Calmly, with some kind of sense)
No, Honey, Nana would not….

But, his NANA did not always use her good sense. Necessity makes us hurry and sometimes give up our reasoning and plain ole thinking over to others. When my daughter, Laura, was about to give birth to her daughter, six years ago - I wanted to be in the delivery room with her. Unfortunately, I was coming down with a very bad bug….and the doctor understanding my plight prescribed “Avelox.” My experience leads me to suggest: “Don’t ever take it.” But, I did . . . I was concerned enough about this new, unknown to me, drug…and did ask, “What about the old familiar drugs?” To which the doc replied…”Oh, but this will cover it all and you don’t want to take any chances.”

No, I didn’t….but that IS exactly what, as it turned out, that I did! I took a pill in the morning on a Wednesday… and later, I didn’t feel so good - but I, like many of us do, ignore my feelings at times, and on Thursday morning took a second pill (I wanted to be in that delivery room) and then, Thursday night while sitting calmly on my bed - I was watching TV, when suddenly it felt like my left ankle blew up from inside! I screamed. My husband, who was sitting in a chaise nearby, reading, jumped up to see what was the matter? I, as instinct would have it, trying to get away from the pain, immediately tried to get off the bed, but, when I stood up - it seemed as if I didn’t have an ankle - it was more like a raggedy doll. MY TENDON HAD BURST! And, my ankle didn’t hold me up - I actually went down to the ground. And, I also broke my Metatarsal Bone! I hadn't read the teeny, weeny writing, difficult to see, waaaaaaaaay down close to the bottom of the instructions, (most probably, neither had the doctor) telling me thatTHIS DRUG (that the FDA surely had approved!? ... could burst my tendon!?) Oh, I got my wish - to be in the delivery room, but I was wearing a CAST on my foot, that night and a loooooooooooong time after.

I, more than most, should have known better, not only from my own education but from an even sadder and more tragic experience: My beautiful and wonderful Mother, Mary in her 89th year (We were about to throw her a big shindig party for her 90th Birthday that August, and she was soooo excited.) She was in great health and doing Yoga, etc and cheerful…and then, a doctor prescribe for some aches - the drug; VIOX . . . Mother obeyed and began the prescription……and STROKES ENSUED immediately! On May 23rd, 2003 my Mother died.

How many times do we have to be told, or learn our lessons over again…… I guess, more than once…. For as they say, “God isn’t finished with us yet”…. Hmmm, well, how can GOD be finished, when obviously, we aren’t finished with ourselves.

Osteopathy's Promise to Children
"Osteopathy's Promise to Children is the instrument through which friends of children in need can support and promote the lifechanging work of the Osteopathic Center for Children & Families". "The great passion of Dr. Viola Frymann's life has been her work with children. This passion was in part prompted by the loss of her first child and the subsequent realization that osteopathic manipulative medicine, particularly osteopathy in the cranial field, might have prevented this loss.
Work with all children, but especially "children with special needs" like cerebral palsy and "learning difficulties," has been the signature characteristics of her work at the Osteopathic Center for Children & Families."-- Hollis King, PhD, DO, FAAO, Editor, "The Collected Works of Viola M. Frymann, DO, FCA, FAAO"
