What is a private membership association?

Under the 1st and 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and equivalent provisions of our State Constitution, we have the right to associate with fellow members and form our own Association just like the Boy Scouts and the NAACP, just to name a few famous Associations.

As Private Membership Association our present and future members of the public become contract members with the Association. The membership contract limits claims against us and allows our members to receive information, cutting edge services, products and more within the protection of the association. This program provides extraordinary privacy protection.

As you know, many medical practitioners and companies who provide natural remedies are being harassed, investigated and sanctioned by licensing agencies, law enforcement agencies and attorney generals.  By going after the practitioners and naturalists, these entities believe a great service is being performed in the name of “protection of the public.”  Did you know that in 2008 the FDA proclaimed that cherries and walnuts were “drugs”?  How ridiculous is that?  Is proclaiming cherries and walnuts a drug really for the “protection of the public”?

The solution to the problem is to change the public patient or customer into a private contract member of a Private Membership Association. Under the 1st and 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and equivalent provisions of  State Constitutions, you have the right to associate with fellow members and offer benefits and services that are outside of the jurisdiction, venue and authority of State and/or Federal agencies. What could come under scrutiny and, in some cases, be considered a criminal act outside the association can be perfectly legal within the protection of a private association.

This right of association is not absolute; the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in many cases that the State cannot interfere with private association activities unless the private members are being subjected to a substantial evil that would shock a person’s moral and common sense. For example, if the private members are becoming seriously ill or injured or dying due to the so-called benefits and services of the association, then outside State and/or Federal agencies can intervene.

However, if there is no substantial evil, and although the services of the private association may be controversial, unpopular, unconventional, or lack proper endorsements and approvals; the U.S. Supreme Court again has overwhelmingly ruled that a freedom of assembly and association cannot be violated.
