Health Insurance Plan
Do you have a health insurance plan? Does it meet your needs? Is it affordable? Is this a plan suited to help you from a not healthy state into a healthy one?
You pay a monthly fee, and you become healthy in accordance with the plan? And with a more expensive plan, will you get more healthy or rather quicker reach the longed for healthy state? Does this mean, that you have planned to become healthy, and you work hard to obtain the money to pay the fees and thereby reach your goal?
In which way does your costly plan actually ensure your health? Well, to keep it simple: It does not! The paper “How Private Insurance Works”1, 2002 Georgetown University, puts it this way: “Private health coverage is a mechanism for people to protect themselves from the potentially extreme financial costs of medical care if they become severely ill.”
If you get severely ill and all of a sudden find yourself exposed to extreme financial costs of medical care, your health insurance plan will help you pay for some services, that you might need for your recovery. From this description it becomes perfectly clear, that what your plan ensures, is all about money, not health. It should not come as a surprise though. Health insurance plans are nothing but products sold on a marked by companies, established for profit, and you are merely a consumer of said products.
Health insurance plans do by no means insure or secure your health. The wording is wrong. A more appropriate name could be: “Medical care cost insurance plan”. The problem here is not that the name is misleading in and of itself. Far more is it directly wrong. It tries to make you believe something, that is false. It tries to make you believe, that you can buy a plan, that makes you healthy. Which is a lye. And a tricky one, that is. Because, what happens, when you know, you pay every month for such a plan? Unconsciously a need is satisfied. The need for safety. You have a concern, and now you have taken the time with the advisor and decided for a plan. The problem – ensuring your health – is taken care of. Contract is signed and money paid. You can rest your case.
But yes, it is understandable. It is way easier to sell a health insurance plan than a medical care cost insurance plan. Sounds more positive, does it not?
The bottom line is, you need other plans to ensure your health. This book may provide you with inspiration in this respect.
When we want to improve our health, there are some things, that are easy, and some things, that are difficult to approach and heal. Basically we can differentiate causes of health problems in a few groups.
Obviously we must consider environmental influences as an important part of our health. Within some few generations our lives have become exposed to unnumbered amounts of unnatural, life restricting elements:
- In our food we may find heavy metals, colours and preservatives, artificial flavours and sweeteners.
- In our drinking water we may find fluoride, chloride, herbicides, pesticides and more.
- In the air we breathe there are residues of exhaust from cars and air planes, chemicals from industry, micro plastic, perfumes, pollen, and so on.
- Our etheric environment is dominated by all kinds of electric, electromagnetic fields and impulses. Outside we have the high voltage power lines, mobile phones, broadcast signals for radio and TV and increasingly wireless networks. Indoors we have the high consumers like underfloor heating, microwave ovens and induction cooktops. Actually is any equipment drawing power from the outlet. It´s the power cables as such, even when no power flows; the field is active. It is dect phones and wireless networks.
All of it contaminates our bodies and weakens us. Therefore at a certain point in your healing jorney environmental topics may stand out as important.
Though the stronger we are, the less damage they do to us. Hence they may drop down in your health hierachy again.
Each of us may have our individual load of irreversible damages to the body. A wound leaves you with a scar; surgeries likewise. A crushed bone may leave some splitters behind, that do not grow correctly. An organ may encapsulate some malign tissue or you have damaged teeth.
Although there may be nothing you can do to it, these damages still have an impact on your total health situation.
Few people will want to pull their expensive artificial teeth. Yet it is important to remember them in the health balance sheet.
Most people tend to believe, that the cause of their problems is, where the symptoms are. If you have migraine, its in your head. If you have psoriases, it is in your skin. But when you start tracing down the causes of physical body problems, most of them point somewhere else.
The diseases, we share with our fellow mammals, and those, that are specific human, are inherently different and cannot be healed with the same remedies.
You cannot stress a dog with an unpaid bill. It is plain impossible. But you can most humans. Most rhinos will not get embarrassed, if you meet up at the party with the wrong tie. Some wives do. Some folks attempt to commit suicide, if their mate leaves them. Most foxes will not.
Economic issues and relational problems – stress and fear, that is – undermine our health and cause the so called chronic diseases. Animals are beyond this kind of devastating influences.
Thus the cronic diseases turn out not to be causes, but mere consequences of stress, fear and trauma. Focussing on these symptoms will seldom heal the cause.
Faced with the burden of your issues you have to choose where to start. Logically you will want to start out with basic problems, that you experience in life, and continue with less important stuff. You will want to take on the causes, not the symptoms, if you want real changes in your life. With honed lifesense skills, as explained later in this book, it is easy to make a list and prioritize the items.
Making such a list of issues and possible measures may bring you some surprises. Many advices out there are about food and exercise. And yet we strive with the same things year after year with no relief in sight. Maybe the list, that emerges out of this work, will put food and exercise at the very bottom and addressing the function of the nervous system high up, together with stress and fear. Or to put it in other words: Making changes in food and exercise may be insignificant, if you suffer from chronic stress.
When you start out on the journey of recovery, things will change. As soon as one topic is dealt with, the next one on the list becomes the most important. There will always be one topic, that is most important, but they will be less and less significant, as your physical and psychical health improves.
Thus, after having improved you general health, food and exercise becomes increasingly important, and you are more inclined to experience the benefits of a better lifestyle.
Are you suffering from acute illnesses, you may have to address them, before reading this book. I mean, if your physician insists on operation within 24 hours, maybe there is something to it!
But as you may have understood by now, most chronic diseases are influenced by stress and traumas, known as well as unknown. Hence it pays off to balance any of these misalignments at as early a stage as possible. The general health improvements thereof will support any subsequent cure or prescription.
