This post is pointless other than to state the obvious.
*****Im talking about all of health care not just the lyme side of things.*****
I SHOULD NOT NEED TO KNOW MORE THAN DRS I PAY.
After years of going to conventional medicine clinics and the alternatives, this system is so wrecked it seems beyond repair.
How many die each year from the incompetent system? I am now bringing this up at my recent appointments.
Just some food for thought...
I agree with you 100%, but then again, it's not necessarily incompetent nor wrecked, it's basically set out what it supposed to do.... A heathcare system based off of pure profit!
To learn what capitalism and a healthcare base off of profit is set out to do, I highly recommend watching the documentary Prescript
ion Thugs. As an old pharmaceutical representative Gwen Olsen remarked, these corporations are not in the business of curing, but "disease management and symptoms maintenance." /youtu.be/kEOayJiXlL4?t=37m49s
It wasn't until her niece overdosed on drugs, that she finally learned that the system she believed in, which was a capitalist system, isn't working.
Another tip, I highly recommend looking up the difference between a republic and capitalism. While most Americans would preach that our country was based off of capitalism, it was not. Our system has been hijacked, I suspect it was hijacked years ago when JFK was set out to break up the CIA and Federal Reserve and he was murdered. There's too much power in these corporations and institutions that obviously run the country now and influence our politicians due to lobbyism.
What does our country due to solve the problem? We put a pure capitalist into power.
Here's another documentary give you some food for thought as well /youtu.be/fyfC1AVhfb8
People in this country have been conned into thinking you don't need medicare, social security, free healthcare, welfare, etc... People think they'll one day be living like Kim Kardashian and they'll never be sick, Americans aren't realistic in modern day!
Even if you have a million dollars and contract lyme disease or cancer, it's only a matter of time till a disease like that can easily bankrupt you due to the cost!
I'm not socialist nor a person who believes a freer market will solve all our issues, but I believe in making a system by the people and for the people, which our country was originally based on, a "republic," which is similar to a democracy. What we have now is chrony capitalism... What I see in these Doctors when they look at me or you is dollar signs, these Doctors turn and burn patients, with no empathy or sympathy because they are desensitized. They stack drugs on top of drugs to just mask your symptoms, not cure you. As Gwen stated, "diseage management and symptoms maintenance." The Doctors and big pharma all want you taking their drugs so you keep coming back, it's one big money making scheme!
Other than the Hepatitis C cure, which costs ridiculous amount of money, ask yourselves last time we've had a cure for disease?
There's people who think making a "freer market," letting the market decide, will solve all our problems. Whether it be for climate change and greener technology, cures for disease, education, etc...
Look at our system, privatization isn't working, letting corporations make the choice for our pollution, technology, healthcare, and education isn't working. It chooses the cheapest most profitable choice everytime.
Half the country doesn't believe in climate change, yet it's the scientific consensus. Guess what, the country doesn't believe in chronic lyme disease either... Gets ya thinking...
Years ago, scientists were bought off by food companies to put the blame on fat, instead of sugar. Propaganda runs deep in this country... You always have to look at all the evidence before you make a decision. /www.nytimes.com/2016/09/13/well/eat/how-the-sugar-industry-shifted-blame-to-fat.html
Yes, the SYSTEM IS COMPLETELY BROKEN!!!
Where we go from here, God only knows...
