Is more ‘preventive testing’ the best and brightest answer?

“Be outrageous. It’s the only place that isn’t crowded.” --Anon

Sound a trumpet blast! Fling open the door! Flip the switch on the floodlights of wisdom and knowledge about the only universal healthcare plan that may ever work without bankrupting the country.

Is more ‘preventive testing’ the best and brightest answer? More testing will immediately increase costs, and could easily morph into an increase in unnecessary and ineffective practices, and (Slide that oxygen tank over here, would you?) eventual dipping into the bottomless bailout pit. More ‘preventive’ pills will mean more profits for the often questionable and even more often over-the-top pharmacological production and prescription mills.

Do no harm? How about the ground and pound strategy of healthcare facilities inflating charges in an attempt to beat insurance company straightjacket guidelines? The result: an antagonistic yet uniquely symbiotic relationship that takes a gouging bite out of the economy and instills a massive lingering fear of healthcare-induced financial ruin in an aging baby-boomer populace that cannot afford the designer-priced insurance policies.

This mild rant is not intended to dismiss or demean the compassionate and brilliant work of the medical and surgical communities, but rather to call upon a glance at contemporary healthcare options through an ancient wisdom window. It’s a call to make room for some right-brain activity. Recent Harvard Medical School studies show that science is catching up with what yogis have known for thousands of years: meditation leads to better health.

Enlightenment about contemporary healthcare options is where it begins. It ends with a truly enlightened planet awakened to the truth of where the very best and most efficient “pharmacy” can be found: within the enlightened human mind. Enlightened Healers are the catalyst. The Enlightened Healer Symposium coming to St. Petersburg, Florida in October is one of a growing number of presenting stages.
