Is healthcare a privilege, or a right?
What is your opinion of healthcare?
If you could paint a picture of the ideal healthcare market, what would it be?
Personal opinion – I think we choose our doctors for the most part. Its up to us to choose the best doctor for our needs. The medical field is promoted more, but they are not the only choice. Western medicine, in my eyes is in the market of money and to maintain sick care. I cannot get my head around why do we depend on medication to fix something medication did not cause to go wrong. Medications do help tremendously, but generally speaking, why are they terrible for us in the long run? The market is not to heal, it is to treat symptoms. There are specialists such as therapists, herbalists, acupuncturists, dieticians, art therapy, massage therapy, health education etc. to help understand how you can better understand your current ailment, and what to do to better manage it, and ultimately heal. There are cases all around the world of people being cured from illnesses, in which many of them we had been told there was no cure in traditional medicine. Above all else, it means means one thing. It can be done!
Are sickness and disease business?
Western & Eastern Medicine
Western medicine is a system of health care professionals such as medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and therapists which focuses on treating symptoms and diseases using conventional methods such as drugs, radiation, surgery or counseling etc. Traditional Chinese Medicine, or Eastern medicine relies on the bond between mind, body and spirit. its focus is placed on spiritual activities such as meditation, acupuncture, and tai chi.
Western & Eastern Medicine combined would be unstoppable. Most illnesses are physical because we have neglected to care for mental, emotional, digestive, spiritual, and physical health properly.
Western medicine typically looks for anything that can be measured & tested ie: blood tests – and in a better world, those brain scans, blood tests, disease classifications etc will be extra information needed to heal trauma when treating a physical or medical diagnosis. Eastern medicine practices such as Holistic or Alternative health practices understand the role of emotions, thoughts, and that psychological health all plays a role in overall health.
Most times, the cause of chronic pain, is trapped emotions. The emotions are considered the major internal causes of disease in Traditional Chinese Medicine It is not the intensity of the emotion, so much as it is the amount of time it is trapped and suppressed. We have been conditioned to believe that emotions and unresolved trauma are not part of disease. Mostly because we cannot see them, and the impact cannot be measured. ‘Mental illness’ or any illness carries messages for us. The main message, ‘listen to your body,’ before it starts to scream at you. What we cannot see also matters. Trauma and the emotions around it are carried not only in the mind but in our bodies. These emotions we suppress affect all systems of the body including the immune system, which is the defense system in our bodies to ward away toxins, disease, colds etc. Sometimes they do manifest physically, and very subtly as in the organs and organ failure, muscles and muscle spasms, blood and anemia, cell and our immune system etc. – diseases etc. Emotions and trauma are hidden from therapists, medical doctors, and even our partners, or friends because they typically don’t show up on blood tests directly. They can also drive our behaviors, and keep us locked in habitual patterns. Trauma is not a fleeting experience, it’s imprinted in our subconscious. It’s something we can heal ourselves from in order to free ourselves. (a reason I’m so passionate about innerG work [🗣because i know this sh*t can be done! 😭😅🙈]. As we reach a higher consciousness, we can consciously create energy that allows us to drive our own life experience, rather than being chained to an emotional past & doing things out of habit. Nothing physical manifests without it first starting as thought and e[nergy] motion.
We rely on medications.. and long term they do damage.. Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and pain relievers available legally by prescription, such as oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine, morphine, and many others – NIH [National Institute on Drug Abuse]
These are prescription drugs which include heroin 🤔 typically from licensed medical professional, & we go to a DRUGstore to get them…. These drugs are legal… yet legal doesn’t mean its right or safe. Many things in the world were and are legal, it doesn’t mean it ethical.. 💭💭💭 Opioids can kill more than pain.
Commit to a lifestyle change. If medication did not cause the ailment, why do we search for outside resources to cure the ailment? Let’s search for root causes.
Affirm: “I release all dis-ease from my body, and welcome health, love, happiness, and abundance into my life. I embrace perfect health. Every cell in my body vibrates with energy and health. Loving myself heals my life. I nourish my mind, body and soul. My body heals quickly and easily.”
What’s on your mind? What’s in your heart?
