The Better Way Conference in Bath UK from 20 to 22 May 2022 was a convergence of some of the world’s most brilliant minds with the ability to articulate complex issues in clear and interesting ways. The conference was convened by partner to NZDSOS, World Council for Health’s co-founder Dr Tess Lawrie. Medical journalist Del Bigtree was an animated Master of Ceremonies.
Informed, creative analytical discussion and shared ideas centred around reflections on events of and background to, the past two years of pandemic response. The transformation of public health by profiteers with unethical and criminal agendas converging to create a pandemic industry was examined. The exploration of solutions for a better way forward for humanity and the planet was however, the focus of the conference.
During her opening address Dr Lawrie charted an evocative journey through the ancient city of Bath, a place of English antiquity, spirituality, science, literature and healing. One of her most symbolic depictions was the completion in Bath during the 19th century of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. A “tragic tale of a scientist’s attempt to tamper with human life”, which she juxtaposed against the burgeoning enterprise of transhumanism. Like Mary Shelley, she suggested that the Better Way conference would examine the darkness in order to understand how to reintroduce the light.
We share here, a very brief synopsis and/or highlights of the seven conversations comprising the Better Way conference, which we consider to be a historic and crucial step forward in a promising new public health paradigm. Dr Lawrie declared the “Birth of a Better Way for the World” on 22 May 2022.
MC Del Bigtree asserted in his opening address that there was no single consensus and panelists would engage in informed, nuanced and robust debate. The passion and vitality of the presenters and conversations is conveyed only subtly in writing. Virtual attendance can still be purchased for UK £49 at The Better Way Virtual Pass, which we highly recommend. The list of speakers is also available here.
Better Way Conference Conversations
South African lawyer, activist and journalist Shabnam Palesa Mohamed shared the stage with UK media personality Maajid Nawaz to co-host Conversation One: Reclaiming Science. Presentations were given by some of the biggest names in public health: Dr Robert Malone, Dr Bret Weinstein, Kim Witczak, Dr Jessica Rose, Dr Peter McCullough, Dr Geert Vanden Bossche, Robert F Kennedy Jr, Dr Maria Hubmer-Mogg and Dr Tess Lawrie.
Individual perspectives on the historical, political and powerbroking forces involved in distorting science, health care, medicine, academia and media were shared. Evidence was put forward for reckless and criminal conduct intending to remove human rights and impose authoritarian control.
New ways to present information to the world, bypassing industry-captured routes and reclaiming or rebuilding science and public health as movements representing humanity once again, were discussed and debated between these luminary figures of science and advocacy. An example of the friction between a range of opinions in this panel was shared in a 16 minute The Highwire clip, Del Debates Geert.
Conversation Two: Managing C19 Health Consequences was co-hosted by World Council for Health co-founder, Canadian Dr Jennifer Hibberd and British podcaster Dan Astin-Gregory. Communications expert David Charalambous commenced with a presentation on behavioural science and ways to connect despite the isolation and division being fostered in society.
Success of early treatments with accessible, repurposed drugs and their suppression by corporate interests were then outlined by Dr Jackie Stone (Zimbabwe) and Dr Flavio Cadegiani (Brazil). The medical context of vaccine safety concerns was described by oncology specialist Dr Richard Urso, pathologist Dr Ryan Cole and geneticist Dr Alexandra Henrion-Caude.
Vaccine injury experiences were presented from a range of perspectives, including journalist Avital Livny who produced the Testimonies Project, a voice for the vaccine injured in Israel; Dr Kat Lindley who provides medical care to the vaccine injured; the experience of living with vaccine injury by survivor Caroline Pover; and psychotherapist Dr Christian Butland. As testament to the influence of the Better Way conference, Caroline Pover’s book, Covid Vaccine Adverse Reaction Survival Guide, promoted in this session, reached #1 Bestseller in Amazon’s Holistic category within a few short hours.
A recurring theme during Conversation Two was censorship: of early treatments; of vaccine injuries; and of conversations between people with knowledge, information and skills to share. The hashtag #BetterWayConference was suppressed on social media during the event and Dan Astin-Gregory called for people to push back by sharing their experiences of the conference as it progressed.
World Council for Health committee member Laura Anderson and GB News presenter Neil Oliver moderated Conversation Three: Fostering Active Communities in which the WCH Youth Committee were represented by two inspirational young Canadians. Mega Verma recounted her experience of abandoning a PhD Neuroscience program due to the level of thought control practiced within academia. Rain Trozzi shared the stage with his father Dr Mark Trozzi, giving the perspective of a high school student whose career dreams were reoriented by school lockdowns. Simultaneously, Dr Trozzi sacrificed his own Trauma Medicine career to fight for medical freedoms for patients and professional integrity for treating doctors.
Community campaigns were presented, including the UK Together Declaration; a video Stop in the Name of Love from UK child protection campaign Safer To Wait and the Awaken India Movement who are challenging influential philanthro-capitalist organisations and their distorted public health interventions. The fraudulent use of PCR for diagnostic purposes was discussed from a South African perspective and corruption within the American health care system such as enormous resources focused on censorship of medical information. All identified the same main actors of philanthro-capitalist organisations and the pharmaceutical industry.
Heartening solutions were discussed, such as health professionals forming new systems whilst continuing to hold the mainstream system to account, including legal challenges of captured regulatory authorities. World Council for Health’s Oath of a Medicus was presented as an updated set of principles for physicians to employ in practice.
Conversation Four: Reclaiming and Revolutionising Media discussed current day issues with media and ways to rebuild a functional journalistic apparatus as an element of healthy democracies. The harms that corporatised media can and have caused were highlighted, with a focus on the Trusted News Initiative. Victimisation of the vaccine-injured and false reporting of freedom protests illustrate mainstream media being sold-out to powerful ownership.
As independent media evolve and grow they meet challenges, such as how to access larger audiences and adequate funds. Independent media strategies were offered by FranceSoir who couple journalists with non-journalist contributors to deliver accurate news and ex-BBC reporter Anna Brees who trains citizen journalists. A visionary final panel forum discussed a range of solutions involving technical, delivery design and financial possibilities.
Dr Pierre Kory presented on his unwitting clash with the pharmaceutical industry and the multiple corrupt strategies employed by medical journals; captured colleagues; mainstream media; social media; and health services and their regulatory bodies. Bestselling science and history author Michael Capuzzo described his journey towards writing Dr Kory’s biography. The Together Trial was outlined as an example of corruption within medical research and literature.
Award-winning medical journalist Del Bigtree set the stadium alight in his exhilarating report of working alongside Dr Andrew Wakefield on the controversial documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe. Initially scheduled to screen at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, public disapproval saw a last minute withdrawal, declared by Bigtree as a huge boon to the film’s marketing campaign in a provocative portrayal of defiance against power.
Fourteen speakers addressed the question “how can the law serve human rights” in Conversation Five: Law, Justice and Human Rights. Business contracts between the pharmaceutical industry and governments ensuring blanket immunity for vaccine adverse effects and security in the form of handing over national embassies, militaries and reserve banks were outlined. These contracts can and will be cancelled as more evidence points to fraud in trial data and claims of safety and efficacy. Multiple alternative systems are now operating, giving victims a voice; enhancing data transparency; and demanding accountability.
The injustices described during this session are extreme. Post-injection injuries and deaths; aggressive promotion of the highly toxic drug Remdesivir to treat Covid; and removal of the right of doctors to diagnose and treat independent of political influence.
Why don’t doctors speak out? Those who have done so have faced smearing, verbal abuse, mainstream media intrusions, computers hacked, emails interrupted, phone calls monitored, licences removed and employment suspended and ceased.
Legal advocates from different nations presented on their successes in defending victims of these crimes against humanity. Perhaps the most inspiring is the Indian Bar Association who successfully challenged mask and vaccine mandates, including representation of those who have lost family following Covid-19 injection. Alternative systems were discussed such as the civilian association Bon Sens in France and the international legal collaboration, Corona Investigative Committee.
Organisational structure and policies within the World Health Organisation were presented and opposition to the WHO IHR amendments and pandemic preparedness treaty discussed. The audience is recommended StopTheWHO.org and StopTheWHO.com as resources to learn about and respond to these threats.
Perhaps the highlight of the entire conference was Immunology Professor Dolores Cahill speaking about her personal journey towards recognising and challenging medical industry corruption. She first faced this corruption as a child in rural Ireland, and was ultimately able, decades later, to find herself central in “bringing down a whole diagnostic industry using false tools and false tests, falsely declaring diseases that people did not have”. The presentation was so riveting that Dr Lawrie invited her to deliver it again, at this link, in order to educate and give hope to a wider audience.
Conversation Six: Health, Environment and Sovereignty addressed a range of global environmental health challenges. The impact of neurodevelopmental toxins on the health and futures of generations were profiled, including glyphosate, fluoride, heavy metals and radiation.
The destructive power of corporations and billionaires was detailed, such as monopolisation of agriculture, subversion of native resources and knowledge, and imposition of failed technologies which force farming communities into debt and dependency. Contamination of food sources and the resulting epidemic of nutritional harms generating a cycle of chronic ill health and poverty was outlined. Indian scholar and environmental advocate Vandana Shiva described the carnage that farming communities across the globe face from powerful and corrupt actors, and the way that fostering native biodiversity can feed the world.
Others spoke about the connections between chronic illness and environmental contamination; ancient and native healing traditions; natural healing such as water therapies and using nature for health. The use of microbial systems to decontaminate polluted land was presented, and the harms caused by and efforts to stop, both fluoridation of drinking water and elecromagnetic pollutants were chronicled. Heated exchanges between people with differing perspectives regarding both problems and solutions, again exposed the necessity in the scientific pursuit towards truth, of open debate.
Conversation Seven: Innovate, Integrate and Meditate, moderated by Dr Kat Lindley and Dr Ryan Cole, explored integrative health approaches and the health revolution generated by events of the past two years.
Presentations and discussions included an ecological perspective of health and health care; re-imagining and rebuilding health systems using a bottom-up approach; self-controlled health data systems; and integrating modern medicine with native healing modalities. The impact of the pharmaceutical industry on health care, including the abolition of effective but cheap therapies was discussed.
Example presentations included Dr Stephan Becker on the effectiveness of immuno-oncology; Nickita Stark on the empowerment of women when childbirth is de-medicalised; and Dr Gilberta St Rose on herbal medicine. Dr Ryan Cole talked about the role of Big Oil in hyper-biochemicalising medicine; Dr Lee Wai Ching presented on Qi-Gong and other intuitive healing modalities; and New Zealander Kim Knight discussed the power of human consciousness in health.
Ways to restore public trust in health care practitioners and systems were the focus of the final Q&A session. Looking at the bigger picture, questioning considered best practices such as randomised controlled trials which have separated us from holistic healing, and integrating allopathic medicine with native health care were some of the ideas canvassed.
We highly recommend virtual attendance to The Better Way conference for anyone interested in learning about and contributing to the global health revolution that is underway. We can all be a part of the Better Way for a Better World.
