It’s a thought I’ve always had but never actually said it out
loud until the past few months. Isn’t it a shame that we can
all pretty much get medical coverage to fill prescription
drugs that we need, but not to fill vitamins or even herbs that
we need. Health Insurance companies will pay for us to fill
our bodies with the heavy chemical drugs, but they won’t pay
for us to fill our bodies with any healthy vitamins/herbs.
They don’t seem to care if somebody is getting better off of
a natural remedy, but they’ll pay for the unnatural remedy,
the one that often gives you dangerous side effects in the
long run, or the one that may make you sicker in the long run
which will cause you to need to spend the insurances money
again and get another drug to counter-act the first one, and
so on. I for one would like to heal my body the natural way,
from the earth, not with man-made chemicals, but I just cannot
afford to go the health route. (although I do know some health
remedies have dangerous side effects too.)
Well, that was just my two cents worth. I was just thinking
out loud to yall. (And since it’s hard to tell what one’s
demeanor is just by reading their words on the screen, I’ll
tell you what mine is: calm, small gentle smile, quiet, prudent
thinker….I’ll let you know when I’m screaming, ok?)
Such a system would be nice. But, for the most part in the USA, we do
not have a health care system but rather a health crisis intervention
system. We do not promote wellness and prevention, rather we respond
to the ills that have developed from lifestyles known to result in poor
health. There is much more money to be made in treating an illness
than there is in its prevention.
It’s not a conspiracy issue here as much as it is that people tend to
take their health for granted. The poor health habits we kept as a teen
do not hit us until we reach 40+. And then it hits pretty hard. We
are then forced to realize that “Hey! maybe I’m not invincible after all.”
Nothing like an illness that drops you to make you realize what a
blessing you had when you were healthy. Sadly, it seems that this is
something that a person must learn first hand. I am certain everyone
on this list has a bit more wisdom concerning health issues now.
Do you think that a healthy person would heed your warning?
One in three people can expect to get cancer. You would think that
this statistic would deter people from smoking. It’s on the rise in
teens. The odds of winning the lottery are much worse and many people
play that, anticipating winning. One in three, 30 percent. You see
people that keep more healthy lifestyles than your own, being stricken
with this disease and for some reason we think ourselves immune.
A major medical emergency will wipe you out financially. There are
probably more than a few on this list that have spent tens of thousands
of dollars in just getting a correct diagnosis of their illness. Fear
of financial ruin sells insurance. This fear creates financial gain
in the insurance industry.
I see the day approaching where this practice is going to bite the
insurance companies. When we have a nation of sickly people requiring
medical care, the financial demands placed on the insurance companies
will break them. Then you have a sick nation without means of medical
care. And how will future generations deal with this problem? Well,
I think the kevorkian technique will become very popular. Today, it
is gaining more acceptance. This is kind of frightening.
How will the insurance companies protect themselves financially
from this health care catastrophe which they in part are responsible
for? They will raise rates and limit coverage. And we see that
happening already within the industry.
It has been my experience that health care, wellness, and prevention
do not sell well. I have encountered relatively few people outside the
medical profession, and people dealing with a major illness, that know
anything about how their body works. They don’t care how it works, they
just want to know what pill they have to take to feel better.
I know a woman that thought two 32oz. soda’s daily provided her body
with all the fluid requirements that her body needed. She rarely ever
drank anything else. She broke her ankle. The bones would not mend.
After a year they had to operate to put pins in the bones. Do you think
there is a connection here? I think so. Do you think she changed her
habit of drinking sodas? Not a chance.
I have recommended people to investigate learning more about microwater.
No one bothers to even read the articles. I guess 5 pages is just too
As it concerns health care, you can pay now, or you can pay later. But
eventually, everyone pays.
