Health care in tailspin
In the last decade, I have fulfilled my chiropractic continuing education requirement with a focus on
clinical nutrient and herbal therapy. I recently attended a seminar titled “Crafting Nutrient and Herbal
Strategies to Outperform Drugs.” In my opinion, most of the commonly used drugs today can be replaced, conferring greater benefit to the patient, the medical economy and the nation by supporting health when whole food supplements and ethical herbs are skillfully employed.
The health of the nation has been in a tailspin decline for generations. The entire debate about leadership and the future direction of, not only our nation, but our civilization and species, is subordinate to the subject of money sucked down the black hole commonly referred to as “Health care.”
Do you see anyone getting healthy by any accepted measure? Or do you see a populace drawing on dwindling last resources of wealth and vitality with the common use of licit pharmaceuticals, illicit drugs and “git-’er-done” surgeries?
With the earth’s waterways contaminated with all manner of synthetic, toxic drug molecules excreted from peoples bodies, the medical term for this present situation is “Despicable.”
While the current trend to organic foods is laudable and necessary in our toxic economy, “organic” does not necessarily mean nutritious. The consumer is entirely dependent on the ethical suppliers of supplements from whole foods and herbs where the purveyor is aware of the issues of nutrient density, controls the source of food products from their owned farm land, restores nutrients to the soil (plant/animal/atmospheric cycle) and laboratory monitors product for relevance, potency and freshness.
In my opinion, you can neither achieve nor maintain wellness consuming produce from most corporate agriculture.
The research is in. The progression to obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes type 2, insulin diabetes, with the attendant expressions of hypertension, heart disease, breast and prostate cancer, feminization of males and all the rest, is promoted by popular dietary habits, unfitness and environmental toxicity. All of these are choices made by a population in transition to disaster.
If allopathic medicine were to offer any hope in the face of this, it would have done so by now. Insist that any national health care or personal program include healthy agriculture, nutrient and herbal therapy.
