How to object to the Therapeutic Products Bill

(Updated 1 february 2023)

Lego people
Be strong: Be heard: Stand your ground!

If you are in a hurry, your objection to this horrendous legislation can be as simple as something like this:

I object to the Therapeutic Products Bill. I want my government to concentrate on improving the basics for a healthy and vibrant society, such as eliminating child poverty and homelessness while investing in infrastructure and supporting business activity, especially for small to medium-sized businesses. This bill does nothing of the sort, and is an unwanted distraction.

Here is a website with some excellent templates that you can use to help write your objection:

And this has some helpful stuff:


I made this video nine months ago, which is as relevant as ever. Just one thing: We thought the fine for making unapproved health claims was to be $50,000. I was wrong: It is $200,00 or five years in jail - This is not punitive law; this is a kill shot.

Yes: Under this law, if an "impermissible" health benefit claim is made about a natural health product by an individual, they could be liable for a $200,000 fine or five years in prison. This is regardless of whether or not there is research evidence to support the claim: If the regulator does not approve it, including the dose and the way it is administered, then any such claims are illegal.

Am I prepared to risk jail if, for example, I claim turmeric has health claims unapproved by the Regulator, such as reducing lifetime cancer risk? No - not me! I'll quit and retire rather than risk imprisonment or financial ruin.

Health professionals who practice natural health are being corralled, and then they face extermination by the government. They are working for Big Pharma, Big Food and Big Medicine - not you.

I'm not kidding - this Bill is serious stuff! They are coming for your food - and our livelihood.

Natural health practitioners are on the endangered species list

I've been in the health business, beginning as a student in 1972 and still going strong in my 70th year. That's longer than most in professional practice (or still alive!). I'm the two times masters mountain bike world champion and ranked 2nd in cyclocross, so I must be doing something right.

My partner, Alofa, has to be the healthiest "older" Pacifica woman you'll ever encounter. So, I can confidently say we know what we are doing and probably better than anyone else. Yet, now, they will appoint a "regulator" to tell us how to do our job, and if we don't comply, they'll ruin us financially and throw us in prison! How outrageous can things get? Leave us alone and let us get on with helping people stay healthy, fit and out of the hospital (While I have been typing this, the ambulances have been constant, wailing their way to Wellington Hospital).

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

We know what we are doing and have done so for a very long time. So, what is the problem? There is not any. The consequence of what we do for a living is people are healthier, are no longer burdens on the health system and have no need for pharmaceuticals! Nobody dies from eating good food or taking a vitamin pill.

Preventive health will become a luxury for the wealthy

"This Bill is aimed at supporting big businesses, those who have multiple products on the market and a big turnover. Natural Health Practitioners and small business owners will be collateral damage. Any costs incurred by these businesses will have to be passed on to the consumer".

(Barbara Roberts)

We need your help, folks, and we were hoping you could ACT NOW by objecting to the Therapeutic Products Bill! It'll take only a few minutes because we are here to help you get it done.

Following three years of pandemic control, governments are not stopping there. Here in New Zealand, the government has introduced the “Therapeutic Products Bill” which will control how products which appear to benefit health are manufactured, prescribed, imported, advertised, supplied and exported.According to Health Minister Andrew Little: “It will enable New Zealand to take advantage of advances in medicine, such as cell and tissue therapies, emerging gene therapies, and the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning software. Risk-proportionate approval systems will improve access to necessary and life-saving medicines, such as vaccines in a pandemic.”

(Dr Guy Hatchard)

When you read what Andrew Little said in the quote above: It is all about biotic AI and gene therapy - the modern-day gold rush, the Klondike of the New Century.

We are being progressively shoved more and more into the Big Food, Big Medicine, Biotech and Big Pharma camps. No more natural or plant-based medicine; only GE food, mRNA drugs and microchips in our brains.

Speak up and ACT now!

  1. Go to this link to object to this bill, and do so before February 15th.

  2. Challenge the government and individual MPs to give hard evidence that health and safety problems justify such open-ended, wide-ranging, costly and punitive laws.

  3. Write to MPs and complain that the appointment of a regulator amounts to an open-ended blank cheque to control the use of products used by more than 50% of our population without fully specifying the principles he should use.

  4. Tell MPs that this legislation will be the last straw, which, if it passes, they will not just lose your two votes at the coming election, but you will also actively campaign against their re-election.

  5. It is preferable, as well, to make an appointment to meet your MP at their electorate office, so you can tell them what you think face-to-face.

  6. Get onto politicians' social media - FaceBook, Twitter, and so on and tell them what you think.

Do not submit to anyone: Object, challenge and reject, but never submit to evil.
