|I don't know who she is, but that is what I want in old age. Joy!|
While all people deserve to be healthy, it isn't a governmentally granted right to have health insurance. The 'charity' and entitlement mentality of some in the current US administration is misguided. Instead of universal health insurance, bogus flu shots, questionable immunizations, and dangerous poison, burn, and cut treatments, universal health education without the bogus science sponsored by special interests is a better choice. Not having insurance motivates people to make better choices!
A couple years ago, I took a course in herbal healing and nutrition from the school of natural healing. The biggest lesson I learned through experience and my courses is that NO disease is incurable. Yes, there are incurable people: hedonists, who desire dainties more than health, or hypochondriacs/munchausens, who identify themselves through disease. Also, everyone will eventually die; if it is a person's appointed time to die, the following will make them more comfortable but not cure. However, anyone who is willing to abstain from drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, exercise daily in fresh air and sunshine, get enough sleep, not burn the candle at both ends, choose to be happy and positive, strive towards the character of Jesus (whether they believe in Jesus or not), forgive others their trespasses, be patient with the recovery process, and eat a largely raw, plant-based diet of dark leafy greens, vegetables, fruit, sprouts, nuts, seeds, grains, and a bit of legumes can heal any malady.
Certainly, if I experienced extreme trauma, I would consider a trauma center to put my pieces back together. There too there is no guarantee, as we learned with our little Katie. Devastating medical bills and a dead daughter seem like an oxymoron experience and absolutely wrong for some reason.
Even though it took quite some time to clear out the mess I caused myself with nearly 45 years of improper eating, I feel wonderful today after nearly 3 years on my healing path. Along the way, there have been setbacks, but mostly I keep moving forward. God's word and millennia of success using these methods cannot be wrong. Like Daniel, I won't defile myself anymore with the king's sensual and detrimental fair.
So far I've noticed some wonderful effects. My skin is clear for the first time, since acne and boils started after the birth of my first child. My hair is getting full, shiny, and strong again for the first time in many years. The deafness and feeling of fulness in my right ear is gone. My pipes don't need roto rooter. I don't have menopause or PMS symptoms anymore. I have lost my constant cough and sniff. I still have a way to go on some things that I don't really want to share publicly. However, I know I'm improving. God set me on this path for a reason, which I don't fully understand at this time. I will be fine and live to fulfill my mission if I simply keep doing what I'm doing.
So...no thank you to forced medical insurance and mandates. First, I won't go to medical doctors for any reason. Second, I don't want to pay for others, who choose unhealthy lifestyles. If the government feels they must get involved in this problem, let them instead reward those that choose the assurance of God-revealed, time-proven, science-based, non-political, nutrition and lifestyle intervention.
