Health Insurance- The Blue Pill or the Red Pill?

Aug 17, 2007
In the movie trilogy "The Matrix", taking the Blue Pill symbolized being content with the status quo. Taking the Red Pill symbolized an awareness, on some level, that things are not as they appear; and a willingness to die to restore free will to man kind. Paraphrasing Morpheus, as Neo reaches for the red pill. Morpheus says "Remember, all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more."

People lack self-control. They want what they want. If it makes them sick, instead of changing their habits they want a Blue Pill to make them better. It seems the inmates are running the asylum. And the market place has responded!

Alas, the AMA has succumbed to the pressure from patients and the perks from the pharmaceutical industry.

Unbelievably, our government allows big pharm to advertise direct to the consumer. And advertise they do! Consumers are bombarded with pharmaceutical advertising in magazines, newspapers, radio, television, sports events, and the world-wide-web. Talk about being pre-sold, and predisposed!

No wonder tens-of-millions are taking multiple meds; for stress, depression, cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Meds have side effects; multiple meds have multiple side effects. There are pills just for the side effects. Tic-toc. Tic-toc. Tic-toc!

The High Cost of Health Care

The medical complexes high-priced spin-doctors are quick to point out that we are living longer, but what about "quality of life"? Tens-of-millions of people are dependent on daily medications; many cannot afford them, and many remain sick because of them. Isn't there something inherently wrong when medication fails to heal and is addictive?

While you can never put a price on your health, by far the highest price you will pay is when it is compromised!

Health care is a multi-billion dollar business. Profits are tied to expanding the market, increasing premiums, reducing coverage, while keeping a tight reign on the costs of the care given. Do you really want to put your health in the hands of a profit driven business?

Be mindful that having health insurance is no guarantee that you will get the finest care, or that the care you receive will get you better.

Let's say, hypothetically that you are tied to a railroad track and a train is coming at a very high rate of speed. A representative of the medical industrial complex and I find you at the same time. You ask for help. The medical representative asks you if you have medical coverage (a Blue Pill), whereas I offer you a knife (Red Pill) to cut yourself free. Which would you choose?

The fact is that train is barreling down on everyone who has entrusted their health to the health care system. The good news is- if you opt for the Red Pill today, you can avoid all but the catastrophic.

What about preexisting health conditions, you might ask? This may surprise you but most diseases are reversible. Seeming "miracles" happen when people make healthy choices.

The Chicken or the Egg?

The law of Cause and Effect states for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. Logically, if you are interested in restoring health you nourish the cause, instead of medicating the effect!

The award winning movie "Super Size Me" is evidence that a steady diet of junk and fast food is unhealthy. The doctors monitoring Morgan Spurlock, producer/director and guinea pig could not believe that the human body could break down so quickly!

"Fully 90% of all chronic disease is caused by an unhealthy intestinal system." The Royal Society of Medicine Great Britain

If the body gets the nourishment it needs on a daily basis, it will begin to heal itself, eventually eliminating the need for medications.

Changing your diet to include mostly healthy food choices, plus, daily supplements of soil-based probiotics and digestive enzymes will go a long way to restoring and maintaining a healthy GI tract.

If you were to take a survey of people suffering with chronic illnesses, it should be no surprise that 95%+ have opted for the Blue Pill, meaning only 5% chose the Red Pill. News Flash: There are plenty of testimonials of people whose pets miraculously got better once they abandoned the Blue Pill philosophy.

The biggest problem with taking the Red Pill is that it means taking personal responsibility- educating yourself about healthy choices, and changing your eating and exercise habits accordingly.

A Guarantee with Dividends

If you were to reinvest your monthly health care premiums with a portion going for catastrophic insurance, and the rest into better quality food, and bioavailable supplements, and were you to combine that with a fast walk for 20 minutes twice a week, within 30 days you would look better, feel better, and be well on your way to living a longer, healthier, and happier life.
