THE Natural Medicine Party has renamed itself the Health Australia Party. What you need to be aware of….

Originally created by Sawtell naturopath Andrew Patterson in 2013, the renamed HAP wants naturopathy and chiropractic to have the same standing as western medicine but without the accountability.

Jane Hansen from The Daily Telegraph reports, The Senate candidate in Victoria is Isaac Golden.

Jane writes, “I’ve sat in anti-vaccination meetings held by Meryl Dorey for the AVN where she suggested parents of a baby should seek homoeopathic vaccination from Golden before they take their baby on a trip to India.

Isaac Golden, a homoeopath, claims that homoeopathic vaccination can prevent the likes of polio, whooping cough and measles.”

In their policies, they call on government to “recognise that the present epidemic of chronic diseases in Australia needs to be managed using a different paradigm which includes natural medicine, and that potentially serious infectious diseases be managed using a thoroughly researched program of immunisation that is both safe and effective”.

The HAP also believes that Homebirth provides a safe option, and women should be able to choose homebirth without penalty.

The HAP believes that natural medicine should be placed on an equal footing with pharmaceutical medicine.  Australians should be able to choose between pharmaceutical medicine practitioners and natural medicine practitioners without being disadvantaged financially for their choice.

The HAP claims our country suffers when medical research is manipulated to produce results which serve vested interests, but which is then used by politicians to form the basis of public health decisions.

Long story short, they are basically anti-vaxxers.

  • So glad the election is over. The back stabbing in continuing though.
    Did they announce any other policies? Nobody should consider them if that’s the only thing they have any knowledge of. Health is only one issue of many.


  • Very interesting facts to know before making a choice!!


  • I don’t actually think this is true. I think they are Pro Choice. Make sure you do more research before believing what one article says and yes I am pro Vax.


  • Very sneaky aren’t they. Thank you


  • The kind of misleading dishonesty anti vaxxers specialise in.


  • It important for everyone to research the parties they are interested in and make an informed choice when voting.


  • I vaccinate my children but I do like some of thier policies like a mother can choose to have a home birth and not be penalised. All politicians have hidden agendas. It’s our job to educate ourselves on all the candidates so we can make an informed decision.


  • Thanks for the article,good to know!


  • Thanks for the heads up


  • saw this on facebook, sneaky devils


  • I’ve never heard of them. Thanks for this information.
