Health Reform? Yes Or Nope


Let’s start! What the previous list points out is that the health care problems stem from all corners of the health care system; from government programs and involvement to public awareness. Answers cannot come from any one element in this mess. With that in mind we will present a series of articles to cover all of the points mentioned above.

The health care crisis cannot be solved if all the issues are not addressed. The first thing that needs to be discussed is what language to speak. Government talks a language no one understands – which is understandable since attorneys usually draft health care documents; and who has ever been able to understand attorney talk.

And there is also the language of the medical profession. There was a time when doctors and pharmacies would only talk in Latin descriptions of the body and conditions. Now they only talk with letters: ADHD, RA, RLS, PMS, etc. etc.

The professions use these languages as a way of keeping their lack of knowledge a secret from the average person. The best communicators in the world have always been those who can speak to the people, and the people understand them. No one in health care seems to be capable of doing that.

How can you deal with health if you cannot even agree or understand what health is? If you are sick or in pain, is it due to a “lack of aspirin” in your system, or a change in the weather, or other things we have little or no control over? Let us define health as it is in the dictionary; “100% Function” or “Optimum physical, mental, and social well being!” Nowhere does it say that you are sick because of a germ or virus or bug.

If you do not know the meaning of health, then you will never know how to maintain it, or enjoy a long healthy life as you were intended to do. Instead, you will suffer illness after illness, seeking cures and miracles from doctors to get you through the day.

We need to start at the beginning for you to understand what health is all about and where it originates. No, not when you were born, but nine months earlier, when you were conceived. In truth it does go before then, but that will be a topic for another time.

Conception, have you ever really thought about how life begins? That ovum from your mother and the sperm from your father, two cells that come together and unite; then the miracles begin. Without the joining of these two cells, each would die. But when they come together to become a fertilized egg, you now have the miraculous start of a person. This single combined cell will now divide into multiple cells until it is a mulberry mass of cells.

Once the one fertilized cell reaches this point and has nestled in the womb of the mother there is an internal force that guides the cells to produce among them a primitive streak. This first change in the mass of cells is the beginning of the brain and spinal cord. At that moment, things really begin to change. First the cells were the same, then there was this beginning of the nervous system, within which the tissues take yet another new direction, the cells begin to change. One cell will become a heart cell, and another will go on to divide and produce liver cells, or kidney cells, or bone cells. Now we see the expression of the innate intelligence that is in control of these cells.

A short nine months later you welcome a living human being. Five fingers, five toes, two ears, two eyes and lungs that will let you know they are alive and breathing. This is your baby. This was YOU.

Every one of us has been through this miracle process. NOTE: We are talking about the development of the normal healthy body and are not discussing genetics or birth defects or other things that might change the outcome. That will be saved for a later installment.

Most parents look at their baby for the first time and are in AHHHHHH as they should well be. The wisdom that formed this body is the one who designed the deer, the tiger, the elephant and the whale, all perfect creations on earth to live and enjoy the environment that was provided. Everyone seems to agree that this process is miraculous except one group… Medicine.

Medicine has taken over birthing as if it were a nine-month pathology that they will terminate, and in some hospitals they have a cesarean birth rate as high as 33% when in reality there is less than 5% of births involving complications. If the mother has properly dealt with the pregnancy, there is need for less than 1% to 2% requiring cesarean births. But the excuse the doctors use is that they have ‘better control” over the birth process and cesarean is less risky. Or is it so they can control their schedules and get home in time for dinner, which is it?.

The ego of medicine is a sad thing. Not only do doctors want to control the birthing process, to the dismay of many soon-to-be mothers, but their results are not that impressive. This country, the U.S.A., has greater infant mortality and maternal mortality (deaths) with over 95% of births in hospitals with doctors, than in countries with midwives, and up to 80% mortality of non-hospital births.

Keep these thoughts in mind as you remember the birth of your child. Remember how you watched as your child grew taller and stronger – and there the doctor is, interfering, telling you that this drug is necessary for this problem, and that drug and the other drugs and procedures that can be of risk and do damage to the child.

All of a sudden the INNATE Intelligence that made this body is shoved aside by the doctors because they think THEY KNOW BEST! You think the doctor knows best. No, not so. The parent knows best for their child. So discuss whatever issues arise with the doctor, you take charge of whether or not your child needs drugs in their little developing bodies and minds. Does that make since to you? It does to a growing number of women who are making better choices.

Remember, you were born perfect with the inherent ability to overcome obstacles in your environment and to enjoy a long healthy life.

Now we hope you have a better understanding of what health is, 100% Function, and how the body was created by an intelligence far greater than anyone in this world. There is no doctor, no research institute and no hospital that can produce one living tissue cell, and your body produces billions on an ongoing basis, naturally, effortlessly, and in harmony with what it needs and what is necessary to maintain its health. The production of a healthy tissue cell to replace a “sick” cell, or dying cell is the process of healing, and only YOUR body can heal itself.
