The Healthcare Speech Obama Won’t Give
Dear Fellow Americans, In every nation’s history, there are moments to tell the truth.This is such a moment. It’s a time of crisis and destiny. Crisis implies danger; destiny implies opportunity.
You’ve heard me express concern about our healthcare system. But you have not heard about the opportunity we have for true healthcare that can save lives and costs.
The problem is one of definition. For 30 years we’ve been calling medical care healthcare. But in the truest sense, medical care is the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and usually it comes into focus when we, as individuals, have failed to take care of ourselves. We are the ones responsible for our healthcare, but we have been shifting the responsibility to doctors who cannot eat, exercise or quit smoking for us.
Most of us were born normal and healthy. But 40 or 50 years later, what we put in our mouths has made us what we are. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine said, Nature cures…Let your food be your medicine.” If we consider that cuts, burns or bruises heal, we may realize that the body is designed for self-healing if we cooperate with the body’s healing mechanism.
A federally-funded study by UCLA showed that people with seven simple health habits lived 12 years longer. But those who smoked, drank, were obese and unhappy—those who broke the seven rules had their lives shortened by 30 years compared to those who observed all seven rules.
Oddly enough, this study did not even ask what they ate! Nathan Pritikin, an engineer who had plugged arteries studied world populations that didn’t die from heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes, His best-selling book got 85% of people off blood pressure medicine and insulin or drugs for type-II diabetes with a low fat, low cholesterol diet and exercise, but no alcohol or caffeine.
