Western medicine

I am blessed to live in a country that offers free health care.  The relief I have of not worrying about getting sick because I can’t afford it, is such a wonder.  It’s a luxury compared to what our American neighbours deal with, where they have to pay for health care.  In America people can’t afford to get sick because if they do, it will cost them an arm and a leg.  In fact, Western medicine isn’t all that it’s cut out to be.  Don’t get me wrong, we are very lucky and blessed with the skill sets and talent of some of the worlds greatest minds and professionals.  However, at the same time, the principles of Western medicine is what doesn’t resonate well with me.

Western medicine will invest more effort, time and money in researching and “legally” producing pharmaceutical drugs and medicine than educating patients on alternative and natural remedies that heal and eventually prolong life.  Western medicine does not provide any outlet or avenue for a person to even look into those options when dealing with terminal illness or diseases.  Instead, Western medicine would rather drug you up and keep you spending your hard earned money purchasing these drugs that have severe short and long term effects.  It’s sad that we live in a part of the world where almost 90% of us are educated, yet we are so misinformed about the realities of corporate choke holds and profiteering, especially at the cost of our very well being and health.

I share my opinion with you all because I believe we need to make a change in the way we deal with illness and health issues.  There are many alternative remedies that are overlooked because a drug company would rather make a profit off the suffering of a persons health issues.  It’s despicable and downright unethical to live amongst people who care so little about human life.  I mean it’s crazy because the tools and the innovation that Western medicine currently possess is undeniably amazing.  We have the means and facilities to cure almost anything yet we have one of the highest rates of illness around the world.  Why is that?  Because our concentration is on the wrong thing, making money instead of educating and curing ailments.

If Western medicine combined its raw talent, amazing intellect and innovative capabilities with alternative and holistic medicine the way Eastern medicine has done it, we all would live much healthier, cleaner and longer lives.  Scientific research has proven time again that Eastern medicine is in fact way more reliable, less evasive and harmful than Western medicine.  Eastern medicine combines scientific innovative tools with ancient holistic and natural remedies to produce the best results.  That is why most people who are diagnosed with terminal illnesses or diseases in the West end up travelling to the East to get second, third and fourth opinions.

In conclusion, I believe it is time for all of us to rise up and take a stand against these pharmaceutical corporate hyenas and push for a more holistic and natural avenue to help deal with illness and health issues.  Instead of living in a “legally” drug induced state all of our lives we should take active steps to finding natural and alternative cures.  We should invest more effort, time and money into researching how to combine holistic medicine with the current innovations and tools we are used too to eventually produce the best results.
