The United States keeps trying to figure out an effective, affordable way to pay for health care but the bottom line is they never will!
There is a combination of too many sick people and too many that are not “really” ill but feel sick due to a destructive lifestyle. The only way to fix the situation is to start creating less sick people! We cannot solve it just by trying to figure out the best type of insurance.
These are the opening words in this recent article, “You Don’t Catch Cancer.” They may come across as strong, but it is truth! Everyone is aware we desperately need health care reform in this country, but their idea of reform is more access to the already broken system. I liked how our intern Marshall put it, our current healthcare system is like the Titanic, and everyone in the government thinks the answer is getting us all on the boat!
You’ve heard us say this before, the medical model is not health care it is SICK care.
While some sick care will always be necessary, sick care alone is a model that has failed. We have to get people well before they end up sick and have them use less drugs and need fewer hospitals, not more.
Cancer is perhaps the clearest example of this. The only way to win this battle is to not get the disease in the first place! This can be accomplished a great deal of the time. Early detection is better than late, but early detection still means one thing: You have the illness! If even one cancer cell gets out of control, as Otis Brawley of the American Cancer Society states, that one cell “is smarter than 100 brilliant cancer scientists.” But the good news is that your whole body is smarter than that one cell. A healthy body makes thousands of cancer cells every single day, but that same healthy body destroys those cells and keeps them at bay.
Healthcare needs to be the pursuit of the healthy body that can kill cancer effectively, that can function optimally, and can heal appropriately. This is why we care so much about the condition of your spine. So your immune system can kill cancer, so your organs are functioning, and so your body is healing, from the inside out. We believe in the 5 essentials of health, nutrition, exercise, healthy mind and soul, minimizing toxins, and functioning nervous system as the most important essential.
I know we preach on this often, but it is so crucial to keep the focus on correction because of the health it provides, and the diseases that we are avoiding!
