Are We Talking About “Health Care” Reform, Or “Sickness Care” Reform?

All the talk about “Health Care Reform” has certainly ignited a fire in countless Americans! Every national news and talk radio show is focused on this hot button topic recently.

The economic crisis is clearly the catalyst for the proposed sweeping changes in national “health” care. Scarce funds and resources, as well as a pending economic “collapse” (as some describe) are forcing us to consider how to manage health care in tough times… and in extreme circumstances.

We’re hearing terms like “rationed health care”, “socialized medicine”, “universal insurance” and the “value of human life”. It’s no wonder this subject has sparked such heated dialogue.

Spending the first 23 years of my life in “socialist” Canada, and still spending much time and energy in their medical system with both of my parents, I may have a different perspective from the sensationalized one being portrayed in media.

I’m perfectly willing to admit that I don’t understand all the politics and red tape involved. I simply have a memory of how things really played out in that system and countless experiences to call upon.

Growing up, I quite clearly recall paying out of pocket for many doctor’s and specialist’s visits, treatments and procedures, and paying a partial “co-pay” for the remaining forms of care: physical therapy, surgery, prescriptions, etc. Not exactly the picture I continue to see painted on the news.

Studying and working within the field of health and wellness for the past 18 years, I know I have a different perspective. First, I wish we’d quit calling this “health care”. The subject of this conversation is “sickness care”. I know I can’t change that, but it annoys me! Words are important.

I have no challenge with paying for – investing in – my own health. I will gladly invest in lifestyle choices that proactively build better health. Choices like: healthier foods, high quality nutritional supplements, pure water, exercise classes, equipment and tools, Chiropractic care, massage, less toxic personal care, household and lawn care products, and so on. I don’t expect a hand out for any of these things… although it would sure be nice! It’s just not realistic. My health and my family’s health is my responsibility.

If we continue to talk about sickness care as though it will somehow provide us with health, we’ll continue on our devastating trend of unparalleled rates of chronic illness in all age groups. We’re confused.

What drug, surgery, insurance plan or federal program could ever fix a problem due to a lack of fresh, healthy, whole, untainted (genetically required) real foods? Or a problem due to sedentary living and lack of regular (genetically required) movement? Or a problem due to a lack of healthy emotions like love and joy? Or a problem due to toxic thoughts and emotions like fear, worry, hate and hopelessness?

Thinking that national “health care” is responsible for our health is irresponsible on our part. It’s also foolish. Their paradigm is still the sickness paradigm. Why on earth would we expect them to deliver us health?

Do I think that we should have a system to help those in need achieve better health and receive sickness care when needed? Yes. But I sure would love to see the main focus of such a program be on “health”! I’m certain we’d spend FAR less on sickness care (and “health care” as a whole) if that were the case.

I’d also love to see the pharmaceutical industry focus on health rather than profits, and drugs only be used for life-saving endeavors… but I digress!

I’m blessed to live in a country with excellent sickness care options. In the case of emergency or trauma or life-saving procedures we have the best. In the case of “health care”… not so much! Sadly though, it’s all there. Everything we need in order to create ideal health is right here at our fingertips. As a culture, we just keep overlooking it and choosing sickness care, expecting health as the outcome.

Our paradigm is inaccurate.

As individuals, imagine if we all began to proactively take steps to create better health. We would no longer play the role of passive by-stander or helpless victim in this game. That’s where I think our focus needs to shift – why wait around to see what’s decided FOR us? Regardless of whatever decisions are made by this current administration, we can certainly become healthier one by one, family by family. Isn’t this the perfect, most necessary time to take responsibility for our own health and safety?

Science has clearly shown us that it’s our lifestyle choices – how we eat, how we move, how we sleep, how we respond to stress – that directly determine our level of health, function, performance and our ability to prevent and reverse chronic illness. Getting healthier means making more pure and sufficient choices while simultaneously reducing toxic and deficient choices. No one can do this for us but US.

When we shift to this responsible, proactive and accurate belief about health care, THEN we will have a truly beneficial health care reform and a profound strengthening of our economy!

Freeway Sound Wall Noise Cancellation Strategy – Want to Save On National Health Care Costs?

You might not realize this but vibrational noise energy causes disease, it also causes cancer, and causes the cells in your body to vibrate at unnatural frequencies. You might think that all this is nonsense, but it’s not, that’s how it all works. Ambient noise is not good for your health and the louder and more obnoxious the worse it is. Those who live near airports and freeways need to really be careful, make sure they get lots of sleep and stay healthy so they don’t compromise their immune systems. Okay so, let’s talk about freeway noise.

You see, I believe we can eliminate most all of it from freeway adjacent neighborhoods. No, it won’t be cheap, and it’s definitely not free, but it is possible. Indeed, I can remember as a young man hiking on trails and mountains above the canyon and listening to a train go by below. Every once in a while the vibrations and noise from the train would be canceled out by the noise bouncing off the opposite side of the canyon wall. The two different sounds would cancel each other out. That is to say; the direct line of sight noise, and the noise which was ricocheted.

The other day, I was talking to a Wi-Fi consultant about new technology which allowed Wi-Fi signals to train themselves, and allow them to relay the signal using a honeycomb shaped device. Now then, what if we took the sound walls of a freeway and used a similar honey cone shaped devices and put up on a second sound wall. Between the two sound walls we have the exact information needed to put forth a noise canceling sound preventing the noise from disrupting anyone on the other side or away from the freeway.

Further, I believe we can use the vibrational energy and cell to help power up the device which makes the second noise to cancel out the first. How possible is this? From a physics standpoint and for anyone who is an acoustic engineer it is completely possible, and there is nothing in the laws of physics which would prevent us from doing this. How expensive with the equipment be? How well would it work? It would work fairly well, and although it wouldn’t prevent 100%, most of the noise would be canceled out.

It seems that the Department of Energy (DOE) gives out lots of guaranteed taxpayer loans for alternative energy vehicles, research, and all sorts of other things. I believe they should put this on the list. They are always spending money on research and studies for quieter concrete to make the roads out of so they don’t make noise. Why not take it all to the next step? This would improve our quality of life and save us a ton of money on health care insurance and our national health care costs. Please consider all this and think on it.
