      I have come to the conclusion that Healthcare in the USA is going the wrong direction.  It has nothing to do with healing.  It seems as though the medical community have all went to school or have been trained in pharmaceuticals.  If you go to your healthcare provider with an issue they prescribe a medication.  You go in for migraine.....medication.  You go in for hormonal issues....antidepressant medication.  You go in for weight issues....medication.  You go in for pain issues....you guessed it....medication.  You go in for dizziness because of inner ear issues.....medication.  Why does the healthcare community have their blinders on??  Is it all about money?  It makes me wonder.  It isn’t about healing that’s for sure.  Now some of you may say.....Not all docs are this way.  I agree....but they are awfully hard to find and you probably have to pay out of pocket for the care.  Anyone else fed up with the direction healthcare in the USA is?  I could go on and on....but I won’t.  I need to try to keep positive and this subject does nothing but make me feel negative and quite angry.

        • I am SO with you on this! I have turned it into a positive - I educate people on how they can get out of the sickness, drug trap. It is still a drain on me though because so many times people are duped into thinking “my meds are free” or “insurance won’t pay for xxx“. Insurances are for profit organizations. Each year the premiums go up and the coverage goes down. We as taxpayers are paying for the cocktails prescribed for the poor and elderly, and even those benefits are dwindling. So the large majority of the nation is supporting big pharma, and living lives that are living hells... simple because we have been conditioned to expect doctors and govt to take care of us, and have our best interests at heart - when in fact, they are only keeping us sick through maintenance drugs, and corporately sponsored poisonings (preservatives, artificial sweeteners, toxic chemicals, GMO foods, etc.)
          It is a huge part of our economic crisis, more so than the banking failures.
          This is probably my BIGGEST hot button!

          Sharing Hope,
