The primary goal of the Dr. Rath Health Foundation is to establish a New Global Healthcare System that can be implemented simply and economically in any country, at the local level and right up to the level of national public health policy. Based on scientific breakthroughs in the areas of vitamin research and cellular health, it is already possible that cardiovascular disease, cancer, AIDS and other common diseases will be largely unknown in future generations if this New Global Healthcare System is implemented now.
This primary goal has particular relevance to people in the developing world where the integration of natural health approaches into public health strategies will significantly improve the health and lives of millions of people, who may otherwise be unable to access any other forms of affordable healthcare.
Indisputably the turn from the second millennium to the third has coincided with worldwide changes in healthcare. Each day more and more patients and health professionals are taking advantage of the fact that most common diseases can be effectively prevented, and treated naturally, by vitamins and other natural therapies.
Health improvements achieved with essential nutrients are so superior to conventional medical approaches for cardiovascular diseases, cancer, AIDS and other common diseases that major health insurance companies in Europe are now reimbursing the cost of these remedies.
In spite of exploding health care costs, the most common chronic diseases have reached epidemic proportions and they continue to spread. Among them are:
The Foundation is also actively engaged in worldwide initiatives that promote the right to natural health freedom, particularly in Europe and the United States, where the activities of the Codex Alimentarius Commission and the European Commission most threaten that basic human right. The Foundation also recognizes that health is inextricably linked to peace and security and has consequently launched the “Make Health – Not War” initiative which can be seen on the homepage of the Dr. Rath Health Foundation.
