This is Dr. Henry, bringing you another discussion on the need to fix our healthcare system by emphasizing personal responsibility. Our country is at a crossroad, either we continue to prosper and lead the world or we are going to collapse as a nation. I cannot over emphasize the dire need for changes in our healthcare system. But we should not only look at the government nor the private business as the solution to our problems. We have to realize that personal responsibility counts a lot. We should know our bodies, know the things that break us down and also know how to take care of our bodies. If you want to know more about these three things, then read my book, “The Body’s Acupuncture Energetics”. It has nothing to do with doing acupuncture treatments, but has something to do with knowing the different body energies that control us and utilizing these energies to help us stay healthy and heal in illness. You can access the book at www.bodysacuenergetics.com or at www.xlibris.com. We should also bring in other Complementary Medical approaches to treating illnesses, such as acupuncture, hypnotherapy, massage therapy, homeopathy, reflexology, chiropractic manipulation and others. I call this Complementary and Integrative Medicine (CIM), as many people have called it, and not Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) as it is commonly known. We cannot just depend on Traditional Medicine to cure us. But most of all, we should take personal responsibility of our own health by avoiding habits that can only make us sick, especially, smoking, drinking alcohol, drugs, too much inactivity, overeating and others. Let us help our country get out of the $14.5 trillion deficit. Now that the Iraq war has ended, then perhaps the decrease in military spending coupled with the decrease in Medicare and Medical Assistance spending should help bring down the deficit. This may not be enough though, and we should do our part to keep ourselves and our family healthy. We may have to secure also the future of medical care in our country. So, if you want to know more, please listen to my web radio talk and read my book. My book would be a good gift during the holidays, as this is a small price to help guarantee the future of your body as well as that of your family. Remember, the health of the nation depends on the health of its population.
