I’ve posted on the Obama Health Care plan in the past and what we have going on now and comments being made about it really just enforces what I said previously I think. The only Real Health Care Reform requires a totally new paradigm. What I mean is the money making aspect would need a totally new approach. Using the current system of healthcare in the US, I mean the way medicine in general is practiced would need to change and that would involve a totally different mindset with the American people. I have to say they actually perpetuate the problem. They are improving but the idea of what too many Americans consider good eating and lifestyle habits is the first step. This new paradigm I refer to would mostly put the pharmaceutical companies out of business as well as the medical equipment companies, probably hospitals as well. Doctors and other medical personnel would need to be totally retrained. Nothing that could be done in one or two presidential terms.
Here is a discussion that was on the Diane Rehm Show, Thursday, March 25, 2010 on NPR. By the way NPR is my favorite news source because it is not influenced by commercial interests.
This link is to a page with a podcast of the Diane Rehm show on NPR.
It includes the comments I refer to above.
As a person who believes in a holistic approach to good health; eating as natural as possible to include as little processing and artificial ingredients as possible, maintaining the body physically with regular exercise and feeding oneself spiritually are key to preventing disease and illness. The spirituality aspect is one I’ve come to learn and appreciate more in the last few months. In reading my blog if your just seeing it, I talk of many aspects of diet, medical procedures and other environmental issues that effect our health and give a heads up to readers who may appreciate a different perspective on information they’ve already heard or read.
I’ll likely be following up on the healthcare reform issue as I get more from my nutrition and health resources.
Thanks for reading:) Always want your feedback. Especially the raving comments:):)
