All people on social welfare should die if they are going to! All, social security, welfare, Medicare or any social program-unless they are under the age of 12.

And kill the lawyers!

Drs. are trained to detect and manage pain and disease. They are not trained to prevent disease from occuring. Want proof?
They get about 20 hrs. of nutritional training.

You are what you eat!

"Why dosent the country do anything about the rising price if healthcare"?

Why don’t we have a health care system that embraces, more thoroughly, the concept of therapeutic efficacy, regardless of whether or not the treatment has a patent? The real problem is not the power of the drug companies, but the power of intellectual property rights (patents), which, Dr. Bell says, effectively “… supplants most other forms of therapy in our country.” We’re no doubt witnessing a world where pharmaceuticals so eclipse the delivery of healthcare that a vast field of non-prescription remedies go unused.
What’s the one thing that integrative medicine practitioners are asking for? A level playing field.

It seems to me that integrative healthcare, as I understand it, is all about taking a central tenet of medicine seriously: “First do no harm.” If there are low-cost, low-tech, unpatented solutions for many of our ills, why wouldn’t we encourage their use?


Excellent post trubblemakr.

If C-51 is passed we'll all know who really runs healthcare here.

>>>yes but canada has a good plan on insurance for everyone it works pretty good

But...isn't the OP about how the plan is failing? About how rising costs are destroying our healthcare program?

If theres no problem, theres no need for this topic.
