Perhaps it is that entrepreneurial spirit in me, but can health care reform really be a good thing for us? I agree that the system is broken and costs are way out of control... Yes, were still talking about health care only. I don't pretend to know all the facts or have any clear understanding of what the future holds for us (does anyone, really?)... But if the government has their hands in it, it can't be good.
There are already issues with certain care providers that refuse to accept certain government sponsored insurance because of the governments limitations on charges and a sometimes lengthy delay on reimbursement. Giving the government even more controls could lead to a decreased interest in practicing medicine for current and future medical professionals who had aspirations for pursuing the “American Dream” (and paying off those student loans). Imagine putting your trust as a medical practice business owner in a government who will decide if, when or how much you will receive for services rendered. Imagine being a parent of a child with special needs who can't get needed services or medicine because of a lack of government recognition or a budget shortfall.
Perhaps it is not going to be as bad as all that. Perhaps this is actually going to be beneficial to our future. Perhaps in some twisted sense of logic, there is a potential for job creation and a reduction to the National Debt. I am hopeful that this plan for health care reform is successful, but the comprehension of this plan that seems to keep changing is way over my head. This country is in critical need of some common sense strategies to improved health and providing health care is not as important as preventing the need for it. Where's the bill focused on healthier living?
We are a country of impatience. We want it all and we want it now. If we really want to take control and make a difference for the future, especially for the overall health of our country, we need to make changes now. We need to start with our own personal health care reform plan of action.
We can start today by using organic cleaning products in our homes and by using real dishes instead of paper cups, plates and plastic utensils. Start taking family walks or get our selfs an interactive game like wii which has some great games for getting the blood pumping. Stop eating out at restaurants that have no interest in our health or the health of our families, especially the big M. Start preparing real meals which include a healthy portion of fruits & vegetables and get rid of those sodas. You might be surprised at how much money you could save with these changes.
Consider this... Many of us can't get the nutrition we need from the foods we eat and there seems to be a shortage of vitamin D also, in many of us. Is the possibility of improved health worth 35 cents a day? Is ridding your home, laundry, dishes and the environment of some of the toxins and chemicals that affect your health, worth a fraction of the cost of what you are probably paying for those popular store bought brands?
I am an independent distributor for the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in the U.S. and this company, like our government, is trying to create jobs and improve the health of our country. They are doing this through natural nutritional supplements, healthy home cleaning supplies, weight management and beauty products. Shaklee has already been doing this successfully for over 50 years and has a reputation for the highest quality products, service and training of their distributors. I would love to introduce you too their products and/or their "Dream Plan" that might fit into your own personal health care reform plan.
