Health Care Reform or a Crime Against America

Cynthia Mittelsteadt

Who are the winners and losers if the Health Care bill is signed by Obama? Not the tax payers, it costs them $894 billions, not the non-insured because mandatory health insurance coverage is not effective until 2014 and not healthy people because they pay their own costs of good healthy alternative medicine.

The Health Insurance and pharmaceutical companies are Big Winner because they have 4 more years to increase and over inflate their prices on premium and drugs. US consumers are the BIG Losers because the USA Health Care Reform does not cover alternatives to Western medicine and nutraceutical supplements (a food or food product that provides health and medical benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease.) Such products may range from isolated nutrients, dietary supplements and specific diets to genetically engineered foods, herbal products.

Health care professionals and practitioners outside the US have been using a holistic approach to treat disease combining nutraceuticals, healthy diets rich in fruits and vegetables and exercise as replacements for pharmaceutical. American choosing a holistic approach to health care are on their own and pay 100% out of pocket if they choose a healthy lifestyle free of health damaging pharmaceutical. Canada our friendly neighbor to the North, promotes a holistic and natural health care system on its Agriculture and Agri-food Canada website by advocating a diet rich in functional foods and nutraceuticals

Mike Adams a writer for NaturalNews discussed the Health Care Reform from the perspective of Americans like me to choose to live a holistic healthy life free of pharmaceutical His article on March 23, 2010 “Health care dictatorship: A crime against America” is an eye opener even for me who has been practicing and research the subject of alternatives to Western Medicine most of my life.

Last week, the FDA announces that one of the most popular statin drugs, Zocor sold in America causes so much kidney damage that it might kill you. The Los Angeles Times reported today that the FDA warns against using rotavirus vaccine Rotarix, made by GlaxoSmithKline, is found to contain a pig virus that is not known to cause illness in humans.

The reason this is important is because cholesterol drugs and vaccines represent what conventional American medicine is all about: Drugs and injections. It's not about health and prevention; it's about drugs, injections and surgery.

I share Mike Adam’s position that the legislation that just passed focuses entirely on how to expand the failed American Medical Association (AMA) and drug company system of disease symptom masking not cure or prevention. This is the medical equivalent of to a war against the American public forcing them into a failed health care death camp. It is a war being waged against our bodies by the pharmaceutical industry, the cancer industry, the American Medical Association (AMA) and all Health Insurance companies that prey upon the public reaping huge profits as American struggle to survive the ever raising cost on a poor health care system.

Dr. Julian Whitaker of The Whitaker Wellness Institute, America’s largest Alternative Medicine clinic told Mike Adam that he is extremely concerned about the government taking over health care and interfering in the all-important doctor-patient relationship. He is convinced that this new legislation is going to result in tens of trillions of dollars in new health care cost burdens that stand to financially devastate the national economy as they rise to 30% or even 40% of GNP over the next several years.

The Whitaker Wellness Center tests nearly every patient for their vitamin D levels and found that roughly 95% of new patients have deficient vitamin D levels. This is relevant because nutrition from foods and supplements like vitamin D isn’t mentioned in the new health care legislation. The legislation addresses How do we pay doctors, surgeons, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies to cut out and replace body parts and mask the symptoms of disease? Not, the far more important question: How can we make people healthier and prevent disease in the first place?

Most hospitals in America -- and most doctors practicing medicine -- don't even test for vitamin D levels. That's why there is an unseen epidemic of vitamin D deficiency in America today. This epidemic is responsible for probably 80% of all cancers, at least a third of heart disease, perhaps a quarter or all diabetes cases, and countless cases of osteoporosis, depression, psychosis and kidney disorders.

So why don't mainstream doctors test for vitamin D levels? Because in my research I found most doctors are nutritionally illiterate. I have said for ages that US physicians are not trained in medical school but by the pharmaceutical companies. I don’t even visit my family doctor any more when I am not feeling right, because if I do she sends me home with a bag full of pharmaceutical sample. I self medicate with an extra dose of fresh fruits and vegetables and my favorite nutraceutical.

When I heard the stories about how deficiency vitamin D levels cause cancer, heart disease and diabetes, I have made a point of spending 10 to 30 minutes a day in the sun. I always believed the too much sun is the major cause of skin cancer so I avoided and covered myself every time I went outside. Well, everything is moderation.

Dr. Whitaker is the kind of "alternative medicine" doctor whose medicine should be mainstreamed. If all the diabetes, heart disease and cancer patients across the country were given the kind of nutritional advice espoused at the Whitaker Wellness Center and thousands of other Alternative Medicine Practitioners found at Alternative Medicine directory.org, we could actually save our nation from health-care bankruptcy by greatly reducing health care costs across the board. Use of pharmaceuticals would plummet, and many medically useless surgeries such as coronary bypass surgery would simply be abandoned. I am the honor Aunt of three nieces who practice Alternative Medicine, Dr. Heather, Dr. Holly and Dr. Ali. Why isn’t Congress talking to them about disease prevention and cures?

So while America wastes trillions of dollars every decade on treating cancer, diabetes, heart disease and depression, a significant portion of all those diseases could be cheaply, safely and readily prevented by having a diet rich in functional foods and nutraceuticals found in the Agriculture and Agri-food Canada website. The best investment in your health care is to eat lots fresh fruits and vegetables and live a healthy lifestyle. Don’t expect your Government or Physician to help. Follow my blog for tips on health living.

It is a crime against America to realize that the answers to America's health care crisis are so simple, so affordable, so obvious and so readily available Yet; our lawmakers remain stuck in a disease-and-bankruptcy mentality, making the problem worse while our fellow Americans suffer and die from preventable disease. America has the fattest, most diseased and most medically-bankrupt population in the world. That's not an exaggeration, it's a statistical fact. Western medicine does not work.

The cancer industry is a dismal failure and it actually causes more cancers than it prevents. Vaccines are a joke. A TimesOnline article reported that Vitamin D has been scientifically proven to work over 600% more effectively at preventing the flu in children.

Real reform can only come from promoting health and nutrition, period. Preventing disease costs a small fraction of the expense required to treat disease that is allowed to develop.

Why is this commonsense idea totally rejected in Congress and the White House? Why has the idea of universal health care coverage devolved into an expansion of medical dictators who only seek to keep our people diseased and trapped in a medical system that will bleed them of their hard-earned dollars?

Thank goodness several states are already planning to fight this. Florida is one of them:

"The health care reform legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last night clearly violates the U.S. Constitution and infringes on each state's sovereignty," said Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum today. "On behalf of the State of Florida and of the Attorneys General from South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Pennsylvania, Washington, North Dakota, South Dakota and Alabama if the President signs this bill into law, we will file a lawsuit to protect the rights and the interests of American citizens."
