So much in our world, now, is about money and it's no secret that Government Sponsored Allopathic Medical care is about money and power (money and power go together well). The established power lies in the Medical and it is the largest most powerful industry in the USA and possibly the world. The best way to deal with a powerful industry is to use what it produces less and less, until you are independent of it, because after all, they get their money from "YOU".
I have been researching, using and talking of Alternative Health Care Modalities for about 40 years and the unceasing quest for money is also well entrenched in Alternative Health Care. There is all ways something "New" and some of the new stuff works well (however). I suggest that if you are thinking of jumping off of the Government Sponsored Medical Care ship into the waters of Alternative Health Care, start with a good guide. Alternative health care was with us long before Allopathic Medical Care and some of its practices have been with us for about 3,500 years. I wrote The Living Wellness about 15 years ago and it is a great tool to guide you on your way into Alternative Health Care and health self empowerment. Bob
