Back again, after a long, unexpected delay. Several things happened: the Phoenix Mission Yahoo Group is showing so much promise for extraordinary healing and generating so much energy that I chose to work on it instead of posting to this blog, my medical practice got unexpectedly and unusually busy and my patients get first call on my time and energy, and I am in an unusually challenging passage on my journey to expanding my own awareness. Through all of this I certainly have not forgotten the Great Health Blog. It kept his calling to me every day for the past three weeks. Now I am happy now to be back to work on it.
I have continued to watch the development of the health-care reform crisis with a mixture of fascination and horror. It is clear to me that the present disease treatment system is unsustainable and increasingly counterproductive. I read a post from Bob Edgar, director of Common Cause, a citizens’ group tracking who in Congress gets paid how much from which special interest groups to do what. The Common Cause report was that since January 1 of this year the health-care industry (Big Pharma, health insurance, and medical device manufacturers) has spent $1 million a day to block any meaningful change in a system that is working really well for a massive transfer of wealth from the American people to the health-care industry, actually the disease treatment industry. When I saw that figure I wondered how much Big Lie could be sold to how many people for $1 million a day. Now I have an answer: quite a lot to quite a few. It may be enough to block any meaningful reform. Even if there is some meaningful reform it's not clear that the result will be an improvement over what we have now, although it is hard to see how it could be worse for the American people or the United States Government.
In the light of what I have seen in the past three weeks I feel that what I am about to tell you about muscle testing is more important than it was three weeks ago. This is because I believe taking charge of your own health is more important than I realized three weeks ago. I continue to believe that your ability to accurately muscle test to see what drugs, supplements, foods, and chemical products are beneficial to your health and which are harmful is one of the most powerful skills for taking charge of your own health.
I intend to post in two or three days the continuation of my instructions for learning to do your own muscle testing.
