Health care is very important in today's world with the growing pollution, lack of exercise, poor nutrition and so many other bad practices of today's society, deteriorating peoples health. The need for better health care and more of it has left our province in a vortex of deteriorating circumstances. Poor planing, lack of funding and acceptance of the current situation has compounded the problem leading to the situation we have today. The Liberals have had their head in the sand living in a dream world of dollars and cents, how else can you describe their actions?
A health system that resembles more of a criminal system as peoples lives are put at risk day in and day out. People left on endless waiting list for simple procedures, children turned away from getting emergency operations due to lack of funding. Patients waiting in emergency often for days on end waiting, some times even dying in hallways waiting to see a doctor. Still many more of us citizens have no family doctors forcing walk in clinics to be the mainstay in today's health care system. But be sure to get there early as people are turned away from walk in clinics as they too are inadequate to fulfill the needs for much of the time, imagine when a real epidemic like SARS or bird flue develops.
Drastic innovative action needs to be taken to address the growing situation, yet current and past governments have "towed the line" with old fashioned idea's to a 21 century problem. Liberal and even NDP have nurtured a system lacking resolve to an ballooning situation. Stuck with blinders' on, with mind set of "acceptable" , "normal", stuck in failure mode, no real game plan to develop the future of health care, making cuts and closures worried about $$$. Politicians are in control of our very well being, while doctors are at the mercy of there very own energy and sanity to cope with the problem of over worked and emotionally drained. The doctors and nurses of this province are hero's' in my book, saving countless lives, working long hours and unmanageable number's of patients under such horrible conditions yet still able to provide first rate service.
Are we to continue this course? .....
Where is the labor council when it come to doctors working 90 hours a week?? .....
Is it fair?....
What would the future be like under the current government and it's lack of action?.....
Canadians deserve better, you deserve better.
Horrible diseases are growing off the scale in the populations, more and more children are born with health problems and deformities, life threatening diseases are being found in greater numbers and at younger ages.
Ultimately our government is to blame for allowing products into mainstream society like plastic food container's, teflon, cleaning supplies, and air fresheners that are known to cause problems yet the corporations line government pockets to get approval.
Mills from one end of the province to the other spewing smoke and particulates into communities 24/7/365, spring slashburning done by government stewards that fills the whole province with thick toxic blue smoke for months on end....this while antismoking program pushed, stating smoke is dangerous to our health yet industrial smoke is just fine??
These "facts" are directly responsible for much off the over loading of our hospitals with thousands of cases of asthma, cancer, etc, all due to toxic poisons in our environment that the government wants us to consider "normal".
EMBRACEING ORIGINAL ACTION:
None of the current political parties have lifted a finger towards real action that will make a difference, they instead point fingers and say the opposite of what the other's point of view is. Instead of changing directions or implementing changes they choose to tax citizens, "thinking" straining people with physical hardship will change the coarse on things like pollution, crime or healthcare. We as citizens in the real world go home to our families at the end of the day, a tax doesn't cure or prevent children suffering from asthma, or a family member suffering from cancer, the environment is still polluted, ignorance and inaction.
Therefore a political party is forming to take control, deal with the problems in reality with reality.
The key is to address the problem with reality. Reality is the current public system is a not capable of servicing the needs of it's citizens today, and it certainly will not be able to serve us in the future with out dramatically positive changes, focusing on the big picture to understand causes therefore preventing many problems.
Making key moves like providing full scholarship to qualified students to become doctors and nurses, in exchange they must work a predetermine amount of time in the province. Building more medical schools, drastically increasing the number of positions available for training will also be key in bolstering the number's.This will open the flood gates and allow people who have the brains but not the means to propel them selves, and our province into a positive future.
Tough love is going to mean a slice of reality, many people are against private/public partnership because they see it as a threat to public health care. They base their skepticism on the US system which is 100% private and failing, however people need to consider a marriage. It already exists in this province, that's a fact you can not deny any more than to deny that earth is round. Wealthy, politicians, sports stars, and workman's compensation all use private clinics or medical services however the past governments don't like admitting it. It's baffling how people could be so nieve and negative towards a resolve of a big portion of our healthcare problems. It is fact the best healthcare systems are ones of diversification, it is proven all over the world. Diversification is what gives Canada a edge as a Nation.
It is a "fact" private health care in BC has been providing faster, better and more turn over's of patients who are healthy and happy than our public monstrosity. I call it a monstrosity because it is a monster of poor management and foresight in key positions of the system.
The system would stay much the same as it is today, with the only major change being embracing private medical establishments along side the public system, ensuring free health care for those who can't afford.
A annual performance audit from an outside source not under control of management so hospitals will increase the efficiency and safety while reducing costs. Any system that has no opposition is destine to corruption and gremlins.
Constructive opposition and questioning of systems management, programs effectiveness and direction is a key ingredient in any systems success, nurturing unobstructed input from doctors, nurses and the people on the front line will help to eliminate major flaws and streamline efficiency. This is key for all systems of service the government is involved in. This is one of the major flaws of past government, they only appear to be going through the motions of improvement and accountability.
Another resource that is not taken advantage is American doctors, they are not easily excepted into the Canadian system. American doctors actually have to retake all exams to become a doctor in Canada, while doctors from places like South Africa and Australia are excepted with out restrictions.
This is only because Commonwealth country's like Canada uses metric measuring for medications while the US uses a standard or imperial system. A problem that could and should be addressed ensuring US adaption to be as quick and painless as possible.
Why this problem has not been remedied with some sort of fast tracking, addressing the problem with as little complication as possible is beyond me. All that comes to mind is rope-a-dope government and people in power dictating "textbook" procedures ultimately neglecting to address problems with any sort of innovative action that would be above and beyond collecting their fat paychecks and pensions.
Some powerful tools to include in the arsenal of health care is natural remedies and herbs. It is alarming to learn the governments are in bed with the drug companies. Drug companies are not in business to heal people, they are in business to make as much profit as possible, unfortunate at the cost of peoples well being. Many of the drugs are destructive, and very addictive, there are just as many people addicted to prescription drugs then there are addicted to illegal drugs. This is partly due to doctors over prescribing and the idea that it is ok to load patients up with twenty drugs, each one fighting a side affect of the previous drug. It cost patients billion each year, devouring savings and actually making people sicker. Imagine if there was a way to reduce the patient load on the system, people having alternatives to seeing a doctors.
Many many natural remedies have been around for thousands of years and proven to relieve symptoms with out the heavy side effects. Accepting, encouraging and funding natural remedies is key in reducing the number of patients that need to see a doctor in the first place. Instead of tying up a bed for an abrasive surgery that will put the patients life at risk, and cause a painful drawn out recovery that keeps that person from living their normal lives, why not use a natural remedy for example, to increase blood circulation with natural remedies to reduce cholesterol so patients will not have to have open heart surgery. I am not doctor or naturalist but the facts are there for all to read if only people would accept reality.
There are millions of documented cases of people benefiting from natural remedies yet the governments act as if it's criminal to even consider treatment other than prescribed drugs. In fact there is a war on natural remedies declared by governments to eradicate natural remedies, to discredit their viability as a solution to health problems. This very moment there is a federal bill to make it illegal to sell many natural remedies and to ban them from our country all in the name of drug companies who feel threatened.
It's pathetic! Politicians should be ashamed of themselves, for ultimately it's idle action under their watch!
Did you know ant-acid sales makes drug companies millions of dollars each year in Canada? Thousands of people also make trips to the doctor especially for heart burn, tying up the doctors and costing millions of dollars.
Hear is a natural remedy to fix most acid reflux suffers problem practically for free:
teaspoon of vinegar followed by a drink of water.
I didn't believe it either till I tried it, for years I bought box after box of those chalky tablets, kept them close to the bed as often times I would wake up with heart burn. After trying the natural remedy I have not had any acid reflux. Do you think the drug companies would like us to know things like this? They would be happy to have people by box after box, treating the symptom, rather than curing it because they don't make money on cures.
Hear is how the vinegar remedy works; the acid reflux is actually due to not enough acid in the stomach, causing undigested food to back up which causes the burning feeling in your throat. By drinking a small amount of vinegar it ads to the acid allowing the digestion to complete. The drug companies treat the symptom by using antacid to make you feel better, but the problem persists for infinity so the victim constantly contributes $$$ to the, (taxed) government approved treatment of corporate greed.
There are literally hundreds of cases and examples just like this one, we need to embrace such alternatives to spawn a major reduction of patients in the system as well as alleviating people from suffering needlessly.
WHATS MAKING YOU SICK?
Shocking how society adapts unhealthy lifestyle due to corporate bombardment;
Micorwaving Your Food Isn't Safe- (by Larry Cook)
Try this Test:
If you have ever wondered whether or not microwaved food is safe, here's an experiment you can do at home. Plant seeds in two pots. Water one pot with water that has been microwaved, the other with regular tap water. The seeds that receive microwaved water won't sprout. If microwave water can stop plants from growing , think of what microwaved food can do to your health!
In 1989, a Swiss biologist and food scientist Dr. Hans Hertel studied the effects of microwaved food. Eight people participated in the study. For eight weeks, they lived in a controlled environment and intermittently ate raw foods, conventionally cooked foods and microwaved foods. Blood samples were tested after each meal. they discovered that eating microwaved food over time causes significant changes in blood chemistry.
1. A decrease in hemoglobin and cholesterol values, in the HDL, (good cholesterol) versus LDL (bad cholesterol)
ratio and in white blood cells, weakening the immune system and an increase in leukocyte levels, which tends
to indicate poisoning and cell damage. Overall, the study suggested that eating microwaved foods can cause
degenerative diseases and/or cancer.
2. "The measurable effects on man through the ingestion of microwaved food, unlike untreated food, are blood
alterations, that can also be found at the beginning of a pathological condition, also indicative of a beginning
cancerous process," wrote Dr. Bernoard Blanc, who assisted in the study.
3. Microwaved ovens "cook" food by forcing the atoms, molecules and cellswithin the food to reverse polarity
billions of times per second, causing friction- the fore friction, the more heat. This oscillation tears and
deforms the molecular structure of food. New compounds are formed, called radiolytic compounds, which are
not found in nature.
Interestingly, microwaves are actually used in gene- altering technology to deliberately break cells and neutralize their "life-force" so they can be manipulated. Microwaves destroy the life-force that gives food its vitality and nourishment. When this life-force dissipates, microorganisms start breaking food down and it begins to rot.
Its this kind of disregard for the fact by our government that is disturbing. I know of people who eat nothing but microwaved food because they believe it is safe and healthy. once in a while may be acceptable but not constant use...then add plastic with the microwave and you have concoction of death...and they wonder why hospitals are over flowing.
Here Is Another Reason;
Pass The Butter . . . Please.
This is interesting . . .
Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When
it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the
research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure
out what to do with this product to get their money back. It was a
white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring
and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it?
They have come out with some clever new flavourings.
DO YOU KNOW . . . The difference between margarine and butter?
Read on to the end . . . gets very interesting!
Both have the same amount of calories.
Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams.
Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.
Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.
Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few. Only because they are added!
Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods.
Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.
And now, for Margarine . . .
Very high in Trans fatty acids.
Triple risk of coronary heart disease .
Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)
Increases the risk of cancers up to five fold.
Lowers quality of breast milk.
Decreases immune response.
Decreases insulin response.
And here's the most disturbing fact . . . HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY
Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC . . .
This fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).
You can try this yourself:
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things:
no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)
it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not find a home to grow. Why? Because it is
nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
Share This With Your Friends . . . (If you want to 'butter them up')!
P.S-- processed cheese is very similar to margarine
AIR CARE; NOT BY OUR GOVERNMENT
