Healthcare vs. Sick Care

What we call healthcare in this country is actually “sick care” disguised with a healthy-sounding name.  Walk into most doctors offices with no symptoms and ask for some healthcare – they’ll look at you like you’re from a different planet.  The diagnostic process would reveal either nothing, or worse, a pseudocondition such as “prehypertension”, “prediabetes” or Intermittent Explosive Disorder that they can prescribe a useless medication to “treat” said condition.

True healthcare follows a hierarchy as follows:

  • Self-care:  Just as it sounds – it is taking care of yourself.  It includes things like eating healthy foods, participating in healthy exercise, socializing with friends and family and consciously choosing healthy thought patterns.
  • Health care:  May include massage, acupuncture, homeopathy and chiropractic care, along with other healing modalities to promote proper body function.  These are things you cannot normally do for yourself, but are natural ways to keep your body performing optimally.
  • Crisis care:  Sometimes bad things happen and we need medical care.  I have never said medicine shouldn’t have a seat at the table…I just don’t think it deserves the chair reserved for the CEO.  Medical care has it’s place, but it should not be the first line of defense.

Your health and healthcare is YOUR responsibility – take it seriously!
