We are witnessing a revolution in the health care field. More and more evidence surfaces about the whole invalid concept of healthcare based upon chemicals rather than lifestyle, and self management by individuals. There is a definate relationship between function based upon the structure of the body and the integrity of a sound nervous system, but this research is suppressed. Most of the health problems we face are linked to stress and our thoughts and habits. Healthy people think healthy thoughts and have healthy habits. One need only look at the evidence of benefits from meditation or Yoga or proper nutrition. How can we trust any of the previous research that has been utilized for the aministration of these drugs? The public deserves to know the truth. The widespread use of pscychotropic drugs and the expansion of their use for back pain and other conditions will only result in more shootings. We are approaching a critical point in the development of humanity. Organized medicine and pharmaceutical companies have done everything in their power to destroy alternative healthcare providers, and natural healing. It is time we were told the truth. Be sure to watch the movie "Doctored" to understand what really is going on.The fact that the state of California did not include chiropractic in it's essential benefits is just another example of the persecution of an alternative healing system and the perpetuation of a system known to be failing. Is the Affordable Healthcare Act really just another way to funnel more money and more drugs to more people? Those that are self employed, how do you feel about having to pay $8,000 a year for insurance with huge deductibles and co-pays while subsidizing insurance for individuals and families who hide income to achieve poverty levels, and whose insurance has no deductible and minimal co-pay? Couple this with unnecessary treatments and medications and one can see the future.
