So the "historical" health care "overhaul" was passed in the House in recent weeks: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35977921/ns/politics-health_care_reform/?gt1=43001 This is more of the same old propaganda: Co-pays, ridiculous prices, high deductibles, medical bills and of course, mediocre treat-the-body-as-machine primary care docs. A real overhaul would be free care for all, plus a medical system that treated the causes rather than the symptoms; a medical system that stopped sleeping with the big financial goldmine giants (Big Pharma, Medical supply cos, etc.). How about looking at how our American diet of refined sugar and wheat kills people? How our Western lifestyle of children and adults sedentary all day in schools, work places and then in front of screens all night leads to depression, apathy, Type II diabetes, obesity and heart disease? How the way we deny the body its basic needs all day in schools and at work ruins the organs and causes disorders? How child trauma and poor parent-child attachments lead to high levels of Cortisol chronically pumping through the body, leading to an erosion of the immune system and the body systems? How about how the drug companies kill thousands every year because its cheaper to pay off lawsuits than to lose money on allowing people to heal naturally both emotionally and physically? How about how the Government is fighting to have all vitamins and natural supplements labeled as "drugs" so that they will be considered "controlled substances" so no one can cure themselves? How about (besides vital emergency care), the medical field is all about symptom suppression rather than healing and curing? (Who the hell wants to "manage" their asthma as a recent medical insurance pamphlet sent to me suggests! "Manage"? I want a goddamned cure!)
How about when you finally find a wonderful specialist that treats you as a member of your own treatment team, your PCP or insurance company doesn't want to continue to renew the referral (or you find out that the specialist is now "out of network")? How about that medical insurance won't pay for natural cures such as classical homeopathy? And how about that there are cures for just about every illness, plus actual cures for cancer, but the FDA refuses to allow these to be released because Big Pharma and Big Medical (who lobby the FDA mercilessly with impaneled reps) would lose untold billions every year? The walks for cancer, walks for heart disease, etc., etc., all are futile wastes of people's money. There are already cures, but the people aren't allowed to benefit from them (in fact, there is some controversy that people who have actually come up with cures have been sued or have mysteriously died). Should I go on?
