We often find alternative care to be helpful, weather its
acupuncture, or massage, or homeopathy etc. Lord knows,
I'd probably be dead right now if it hadn't been for some
caring alternative practitioners. The same can also
be said for MDs, but fewer of them operate from a position
I learned a few days ago that my health insurance and
disability insurance will not cover me because when they
looked at my doctor's medical notes, they see that I took
artestatin (which has saved my life from babesiosis) and
also have taken Colloidal Silver .
I thought it was a good thing to be honest with my doctor,
that medicine had changed and become more accepting of
alternatives. But I now realize that my honesty with her
not only damages my abiliaty to care for myself in this
system here in the US, but it also puts the doctor in danger
of losing his/her license. They must adhere to what
is called "standard practice of medical care" or it can
be considered neglect.
To me, this is insane. Absolutely insane. But it
just happened this week. The insurance company was
Hartford Insurance. Be careful, be very very careful.
In Germany, there was a guy who got much better when he
took up qigong. The insurance company was HAPPY and
decided to start covering qigong. In Canada when it
was discoverd that motherly touch and gentle massage
have positive effects on health and sped up recovery
for many diseases, they started a national education
program and gave the scientists awards. Here in the US,
for some reason, these things must be hidden, and
are not covered.
