“Healthcare Freedom” is a buzzword which has been on the lips of many an American pundit, especially since the introduction of Obamacare in America.
Whereas in the United States the term has as of late focused on Health Insurance and issues related to personal choice in terms of both protection and ultimate service providers, elsewhere in the world—including here in Canada—citizens must be on watch for a more insidious governmental intervention.
Of course in Canada we have a much lauded public healthcare system (wait times notwithstanding), and there are many treatments not covered by provincial healthcare plans, particularly so-called “alternative” treatments.
As of May 28, 2014, patients are not automatically entitled to seek compassionate therapy, according to a landmark ruling of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France.
Without scientific evidence of efficacy, publically funded systems are not obligated to fund experimental therapies, even in cases where established therapies have all proven ineffective; and, even if the patient still in need of therapy is dying, suffering, etc.
The background and basis for the ruling was discussed recently in a newsblog on www.nature.com posted on May 30th: “Human-rights court rules that evidence must support compassionate therapy.”
Indoor Ecosystems could prove to be an effective Defensive Measure against Future Tyranny by the State
We have long referred to PeapodLife Building EcoSystems as “spaces of love, health & wellness, healing, etc.” Pretty soon, we may also be able to refer to them as sanctuaries against tyranny by large corporations and the government.
As austerity measures put the all mighty dollar ahead of compassion; as corporate interests ensure that only the most successful and lucrative drugs, treatments, therapies and procedures are offered in publically funded healthcare programs, the ability to take control of your own health and wellness is becoming that much more prudent and urgent.
Clean air and a boosted immune system are only the beginning. With other at-home and at-work preventative therapies, consultations, diets, etc., attuning oneself to the notion of living in an environment of health and wellness just makes sense.
An ecosystem supports taking a proactive role in one’s own wellness program (or establishing one at work). Ecosystems surround individuals with a space of wellness: an energy field of optimum physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
One never knows what treatments the corporate-lobbied, publically-funded healthcare system is going to try to impose on us (we know it’s going to profit others, possibly at our expense).
But no-one can prevent us from taking care of ourselves, our families, our residents and our employees in a natural and holistic way. It never hurts to take Voltaire’s words to heart, hole-up and prepare for the inevitable calamity of a financial market/corporate driven healthcare system.
Let nature cure the disease.
