healthcare solution!

Turbulent days have past and even more gray is on the horizon; we live in a polluted world, physically and psychologically. Take a step outside, after the sun has gone down, one short-lived minute, look up to the sky and take a deep breath – and another one… Control your lungs for a moment, chance on feeling your heart beat, relax the speed of breathing, let your shoulders hang, embrace the fact you are alive and in presents with yourself.

While Obama is “selling” his idea of health care plan for everyone and how to deal with the burden of ill people draining the funds available for treatment, tests and doctors, he is astonishingly ignoring the reality that we are a direct product of our intake. Years of narrow minded acceptance, eating from the shelves and drinking from the faucets. The Air, the food and the media – the liquids, the drugs and the images; it all pollutes our body and mind. This dilemma with young humans suffering allergies, obesity while their parents struggle with health issues we foremost experienced with the old – and our aged parents fighting so sternly for a day of life, to hold on to one more hour of living; the tests, samples, treatments, x-rays and frankly the modern knowledge we have about these symptoms of years of abuse cant be fixed with modern medications. No, cant be fixed. Feeling better but being toxic is not being better…

Pharmacies would never commit to a drug that “really” cures any symptoms, besides, there hardly is anything logic about “healing” a symptom without controlling the cause of the illness. We have become so stupid and manipulated by the thought that we can consume and live in excess because there will be a pill or a cure for anything. That’s stupid. Oddly there is no pill sold for this, although most people seemingly would be a target audience!

Who has gotten us to be so gullible? Pharmaceutical barons! We consume so much poisonous products, lazed with food colorations, preservatives and trans fatty acids, chemically “enhanced” sweets and greased, salty fake foods, to an extend we do acknowledge that this ought to have a consequence… Only, when we get ill we try to “cover up” the pain, force infections not to surface, interrupt body reactions and suppress the immune system from even reacting. So we can maintain the same self destructive habbits…

Is it not suspicious that all the pharmaceutical operations are also the stake holders, shareholders, owners of these candy factories that make us sick, fat, addicted and even kill us? Pharma subsidiaries owning cookie factories, artificial butter firms and soda production lines? Pharma Barons cashing in on baby food, facial creams, anything you smear and plaster onto your tortured body? They even own cigarette lines and have their fingers in health insurance groups, own hospitals and some produce even chemicals used in warfare…

Michael Jackson died because he manipulated access to Western drugs he should not have taken. Simply a tea brewed from the flowers of passion fruit would have induced comforting sleep. A recipe that is out there for four thousand years…

As much as I have studied and learned about the simply solutions that are available to us to prevent from falling ill, as much as I wish I could go out there and show you via a TV cooking show what incredible access we have to sooth, take care and strengthen our bodies from these foreign influences; I feel sad that there is such a lack and ignorance when trying to pitch a show that is the very solution to the health care crisis. Americans are not ready for a TCM cooking show. Not ready? They are dying, and have no health insurance and Western medicine is killing the rich! Not ready??

No, there is no cure in nature to heal cancer, neither is it healthy to deny the obvious; we are the result of what we have done in the past. But we can make it better for the future, with little adjustments, with natural products, with incredibly powerful and successful methods available to everyone. We can cause cancerous cells to self destruct, we can survive comfortably a long period of time, we can now teach the children how to eat, change their understanding so in the future they don’t have to rely on taking toxins to cover up reactions… Get me a TV show!!! Where is Opra?

In the mean while, within two weeks I helped my neighbors dog to walk again, after the doctor said he would die. He now dances around me. I help other neighbors with their little complaints and I will have to be patient about the chances for a bigger outlet to bring this message of solutions to a mainstream audience. It’s so frustrating to watch the healthcare debacle. Really, in a way I have to agree, we deserve to be ill, gosh it’s not like I wish it upon anyone, but look around, we are behaving so berserks!

I’m going to go outside, relax my shoulders, look up to the sky and take a deep breath. I will feel my heart beat and soon with a smile realize that life is beautiful, after all…
