My Best of Blog Posts...

All the media outlets and shows do a "Best of 2008" tribute. I thought I would do it too. I have listed some blog posts that have important health messages. My two concerns this year have been health freedom and personal development.

We need health freedom so we can make the best choices without feeling pressured to follow the crowd. When we look at health news there are a lot of crowds who are promoting things that are not really good for us. We know drugs have side effects and the science behind them are questionable. We also know most diseases are problems of life style such as diet, sedentary habits, etc. It takes comitment of time and comitment of mind.

When your brain is connected to the body so appropriate homeostasis and healing can take place, you can develop your personal talents. Living your best life is promoted by the philosphy of chiropractc.

I thank all my practice members for their dedication, questions, and motivation to live well. Enjoy my list. And...see you at the table...the chiropractic table.

You get to choose.

Even Oprah Gets Bad Dieting Advice...from the So-Called Best M.D.'s

In the newest O Magazine, Oprah talks about her latest weight issue and contemplates just accepting her weight as it is. Dr. Eades, the protein power man, has an excellent article in response to this topic. It is a long article but worth reading.

I like Dr. Eades because he doesn't give in to the misinformed low fat, low cholesterol "blubber" doctors still spout. He doesn't give in to the carbohydrate confusion created by the Food Guide Pyramids that are designed as marketing tools and not as true nutritional guide.

Here is a recent book by Dr. Eades.

Sickness Insurance ----Insures Sickness!

Thank you Lighter Side Blogger

America's health care costs will double in 10 years! Yikes.

Revisist Dr. Mercola's newsletter from two years ago and see how you feel about it today.

Will you take control of your health or leave it up to the bigwigs who monopolize the health care industry?
Taking Ownership of your Health is Alternative Medicine

Visit this site about the industry of sickness care:
"I believe Dr. Grassam said it best when he said people suffer from a life deficiency syndrome brought to you by Madison Avenue and the drug industry."

My Letter to Health Care for America Now

I found an interesting grassroots website called Health Care for America Now

I have responded to their email campaign by explaining to them why I am unable to vote because I don't agree with either of the two choices offered. Take a look at the site and read what I sent to them in an email.

Dear Health Care for America Now:

I found your website but I cannot vote since I don't like either of the choices on your petition. I believe in some portions of your statement of common purpose, but there is too much emphasis on insurance.

#1 I want employers to get out of the health insurance business. People should buy the plan of their choice. Currently that is not available now because big companies have pushed out the individuals. Employers should stop offering health insurance.

#2 Health insurance should only be for hospital care and emergencies. If people paid out of pocket for doctors visits, including drugs, maintenance and prevention the prices would go down and people would be taking better care of themselves. I truly want the health insurance industry out of everyday non-emergency health care. It should be more like car insurance.

#3 People have turned dumb when it comes to their own health. If insurance doesn't cover something, mostly prevention, they turn their backs on it, even if it is the most simple and effective way to take care of themselves. Deductibles and co-pays are too confusing for people to sift through and contribute to the dumbing down of the health care consumer. The Explanation of Benefits consumers receive (EOB's) are not helpful. Get rid of all the complicated terminology and policies. Cover a health care service and pay the provider without all the hoops to jump through or don't cover it.

Create a better petition and then I will vote.

I am a chiropractor and I have seen when people don't write the check out themselves for their own health care, they stop exercising their responsibility to be informed about their mental and physical needs. They really put their brains on auto-pilot and stay unhealthy. I sound like I am insulting my practice members, however, they are an exceptional group. They do not believe health insurance is the answer to the chronic illnesses the U.S. is facing. They have been educated by their chiropractors and other wellness professionals. They know a grassroots campaign like yours is still asking for more government involvement and not empowering to the consumer. Please go back to the drawing board. Just like less government is the answer, less insurance is also the answer.

Thank you,

Dr. Homic
