Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, introduced a brilliant solution to our current health care reform dilemma: The creation of a Health Freedom Zone in America
OC and Mike Adams, Health Freedom Expo, Long Beach, CA, 03.27.10
Mike says,"Here's how it would work: All it takes is just one state -- such as Oregon, Washington, Arizona or Hawaii -- declaring itself to be the "health freedom zone" for America.
It would openly allow naturopathic physicians and "CAM" practitioners (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) to treat (and help cure) serious diseases, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease and many others. It would openly allow Chinese Medicine doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and other well-educated health practitioners to offer nutritional therapies to prevent and cure serious disease. At the same time, it would allow nutritional supplement companies to tell the truth about the truthful therapeutic effects of their products right on the product labels, so that consumers buying such products at retailers within the state could make informed decisions about how to prevent cancer with vitamin D, for example.
If just one state were to step up and much such a declaration, it would instantly transform itself into the natural health capitol of North America and patients and natural health practitioners would flock to the state from all across North America to experience natural medicine that really works.
A wealth of positive effectsThe results of this would include all the following:
#1) Your state would experience a booming economy from the huge influx of new natural health businesses and customers engaged in "natural health medical tourism" from all across the country.
#2) Potentially millions of new jobs would be created in your state in the support of these businesses, including office staff, logistics, administration, marketing and much more.
#3) Your state's population would get healthier because they would now have access to naturopathic medicine, honestly-labeled nutritional supplements (instead of the supplement censorship that is now forced upon us by the FDA), and natural therapies that are safer, more affordable and more effective than drugs and surgery.
#4) Because your state's population is now getting healthier, your state expenditures on Medicaid would plummet. So even while your economy is booming from natural health care tourism, you're also spending less on sickness and disease.
#5) Your workforce becomes highly productive and desirable. As your population becomes healthier and regains strong cognitive function thanks to nutrition, your workforce becomes sharper and healthier. Corporations experience higher productivity and reduced losses due to sick time of staff, and your state gains a reputation as a place where companies can hire smart, productive and healthy people who have far lower health care costs. Can you imagine the huge influx of corporations and the massive job creation that would follow?
#6) As all of this is going on, your state would also see dramatic increases in happiness and longevity among the population. And that translates into quality of life that gets your cities named as top choices for places to live in America.
There are other benefits, too. These are just a few of the more important ones."
