The elderly will live longer and have less side effects from the medication. Hopefully the elderly will read up on the Statin drugs and the mind drugs and recognize alternative medicine.

Herbal medicine is leading the health conscious way with positive results against the greed of the pharmacutical, side effect, ruin your health and life..... by AMA doctors. One look at the Mental Health Industry and the greed with no science, no medical model, no evidence based medicine and no test for chemical imbalance of a defective brain is enough to make you wonder the political intent of the Republican (ALEC) party since the Reagan / Bush presidency. Where else could the rich but in the capitalist system of medicine distroy the disabled, the weak the uneducated and make a buck.

The Republican get rich scheme

Medford has the finest medical coverage between Portland and San Francisco, and yes, there are dozens of PC Physicans that accept Medicare...the only problem may take three months to see one, because half of California has moved here recently.

It seems Medicare is starting to become more and more like state Medicaid. The doctor reimbursements are going to be so small that they won't take Medicare anymore. We need to look out for the physicians and providers. Sign up for my FREE 5 part mini-course on Medicare Made Easy at

So my husband and I, from California, will find no doctors and Oregonians who don't like us if we move to Grants Pass? I have always loved Oregon but the feeling does not seem to mutual. Why is that?
