Many clients have confided in me that they do NOT trust allopathic medical doctors and/or modern medicine anymore.
Actually, they don’t trust that the practice of modern medicine has their health or best interests at heart.
For many people, it took the last two and half years of media fear-mongering, combined with flip-flopping narratives coming from esteemed medical professionals, for them to see that something is seriously amiss with the health-care system.
If it wasn’t clear to them before 2020, it certainly is crystal clear now.
The health-care system is broken.
It is a disease-promoting and disease-care system that will literally suck the life out of you and have you pay for it, to boot.
Personally, I have been functioning healthfully and happily outside of the modern medical system since 1996, and my health and well-being has thrived.
I’m grateful for the medical wake-up call (thyroid disease) that shook me out of that system a couple of decades ago, and I’m happy to be able to share knowledge that supports people who are trying to break free as well.
The parts of the system that do work well are trauma-based in their ability to put people back together again.
But, when it comes to disease prevention and healing, our modern medical system and the people working in it, need to be re-educated by traditional healers, rather than funded by BIG pharma.
For those of you that follow my work, you already know this, and I’m preaching to the choir.
My question is, why do so many people continue spending money to remain in a system that does NOT work to support health and vitality?
Many years ago a woman chastised me for NOT having health insurance. She called me irresponsible and said, “What if you get hit by a bus?”
She didn’t know it, but she was referring to trauma-care (accident insurance) NOT health-care. “Generally, the person at fault for the car accident pays the medical bills of those injured in the accident via their auto insurance provider. The bodily injury component of state-mandated liability auto insurance covers the injuries of those not at fault. A person with personal injury protection (PIP) coverage included with their auto insurance policy can use it to cover their own injuries sustained regardless of fault.” – 1
Or, if it’s a private bus company or city bus company that hits a pedestrian, those medical expenses are covered by the bus company or city. – 2
It looks like the tides have changed though.
Recently, an interviewer asked me, “How long have you NOT had health insurance.”
I told her I haven’t had it since I quit my corporate job in 1999.
She said, “Wow! Do you know how much money you saved? You saved over $250,000! Good for you!”
I never thought of it that way.
I simply use the money that I would have spent on health-insurance on other things that actually support my health and vitality:
- Great quality food
- Medicinal herbs
- Alternative health practitioners (energy workers, massage therapists, herbalists, acupuncturists, shamans, psychics…. )
I’m not suggesting we abandon the health-care system entirely. Use it when you need it.
For example, I stepped on a piece of glass and immediately went to the local Urgent Care Medical Clinic in my neighborhood.
They propped my foot up, used a tiny scalpel (or some other medical tool), took out the glass, and cleaned my wound. It was $275 very well spent.
But as far as disease prevention and healing – they have little, if anything, to offer me or anyone else.
Moving beyond this pandemic, and before we head into the next one, it may be time to re-evaluate where you spend your hard-earned money.
