Health and Healthcare

Two paradigms of thinking are vying for control of the field of medicine:

 

-The holistic

-The technocratic

 

Identifying the correct paradigm is the first and most important aspect of any policy approach to healthcare.

Any policy, no matter how generous and well-intentioned, is counterproductive if it employs the wrong paradigm. 

 

Before worrying about how to fund medicine, we first have to make sure we know what medicine actually is.

The paradigm that most of us "modern" folks are familiar with is the mechanistic one.  Quite simply, it approaches the human body as a machine.

In it, the doctor functions like a car mechanic.  When a part breaks or has trouble, he goes in and fixes it.  And that's that.

It's very much about action and reaction.  Something happens, and the doctor's job is to reverse it.  There's a force, and the doctor counters it with an equal but opposite force.  It smacks of Newtonian physics.

And indeed, it emerges from the 17th Century philosophical lineage known as "materialism", which Newton was part of.  Materialism states that Reality consists of nothing but physical matter - that which can be scientifically studied - and contains nothing else.

 

Other prominent figures in this era were Descartes, who posited that the Universe was one giant machine, and every living being (us included ) is a machine too.

But this is not how medicine began.  This attitude has only been around for a few centuries - but medicine is as old as Life itself.  People were practicing medicine long before the materialistic, mechanistic medical paradigm came to prominence.

In a machine, there is a finite number of parts, and the whole contraption has finite complexity.  There is a finite number of things to know about it, and it's very possible for one person to know and understand every single part and aspect of that machine, completely.  It's possible to make an instruction manual that covers every function and every conceivable aspect of repair.  If something breaks, there will be a page in the manual for fixing (or, as a last resort, replacing) the broken part.

 

Furthermore, and in the cases of more complex machines, expertise may be spread out, with different people becoming experts in different parts.  Nobody needs to understand the full machine, as long as he knows his specific part.  No matter what part breaks, you can call in the specialist for that part, and he can fix that part, without concerning himself with the rest of the machine.  If your car's muffler breaks, all you need is a muffler guy - and he doesn't need to know anything about the engine, nor care. 

And this is because machines have finite complexity.  Each machine has a finite and precise number of parts, because they're made on assembly-lines.  Your computer has a finite number of parts.  It might be in the thousands, if you include all the chips and stuff - but it's still finite. 

And each part is a semi-isolated unit, with a specific, finite number of types of interaction it can experience with other parts. 

But it shouldn't require a genius to figure out that there's  an enormous problem with applying this paradigm to medicine.

 

The human body is not a machine.  Ecosystems are not machines.  Life is not a machine.

Life is a dynamic system, wherein each part has an infinite number of potential relationships with every other part.  In fact, there is no such thing as a "part" at all, because, there are no clear dividing lines between them.  Where does your wrist end and your forearm begin?  How many parts are there in a finger? 

 

There are an infinite number of "parts". 

 

And there is no instruction manual.  There never could be one.

And specialization is of limited usefulness.  No matter what "part" is being addressed, the rest of the body is intimately involved in its functioning.

 

It's impossible to even understand a part without understanding the whole body.  You must address the whole body at once, even in the midst of addressing whichever "part" you're focusing on.

The mechanistic paradigm is the wrong way to look at it.

It does have some limited uses.   

But for long-term health, and for the addressing of chronic illnesses, the natural paradigm is the one that makes sense.  That's because it treats the hpatient as the dynamic system that we are - and not as a machine, which we aren't.  It has a more accurate relationship with reality. 

 

Haven't you noticed?  In politics and on television, there's a huge debate about healthcare, but no debate whatsoever about health?

​The only question you ever hear asked by the corporate media is, "who pays for the medicine?"

 

But never "Why people are so sick in the first place?"

Two Paradigms of Medicine

 



 



And that is how the technocratic medical paradigm treats living beings.

But we are not machines.  Each part is a constituent of a larger context, and cannot be understood without first understanding that wider context.

There are two ways to look at health.  They're not merely differing strategies, but entire worldviews.  Modes of interacting with reality itself.

 

They've been fighting for dominance of the human world.

 

The 2020 pandemic hysteria has brought this struggle to the foreground in mass-consciousness. The world is currently witnessing the climax of an ancient, largely hidden war, finally spilling out of its containers, the disguises falling away as both sides make their last-ditch plays.

 

Finally, the fight has captured the attention of the world. And this is good news.

 

Very good news.

 

Since the conflict is no longer hidden, it's going to be brought into mass-awareness, confronted, and processed - and then resolved, once and for all.

 

So what is the conflict?

 

What are the two paradigms?

 

 

The original paradigm - known by various names, including naturopathic medicine and holistic medicine - approaches health with the attitude of systems thinking. It treats the whole body as one interconnected system, in which every part potentially affects every other part.

 

In fact, it acknowledges the person as more than just the body. We are Beings. We are consciousness. And consciousness affects the physical world. Our mind and spirit affect our bodies.

 

And holistic medicine treats the entire person, as a person. It recognizes that even though an ailment is showing up in a specific organ, it's really an ailment of the total person, since the organ is part of, (and inseparable from), the totality of the person.

 

It's looks for the big picture. And if disease shows up, we inspects it within the context of the total patient: mind, body, and soul.

 

And the other paradigm...

 

...the one known as allopathic medicine, or technocratic medicine...

 

...only looks at the body, and only at the specific area, organ, or system where the disease is appearing. It dismisses the importance of any "bigger picture", as irrelevant at worst, and peripheral at best.

 

It emerged from the materialist philosophy, and as such, denies the existence of the spirit, and severely discounts and ignores the role of the mind.

 

If it recognizes consciousness at all, it's as no more than an "epi-phenomenon" - an "accident" - of the brain. Essentially we are, in the words of one Jamie Lannister, "nothing but sacks of meat and blood, and some bone to keep it all standing."

 

 

Just walking lumps of cells - atoms, really - which just happen to be "carrying around" a mind, located on the top floor.

 

It views human beings not as Beings, but merely as bodies, which, in turn, are nothing more than very complex machines.

 

It views all of Life as a machine, and thus, it approaches medicine from a perspective of mechanical engineering.

 

 

When a machine breaks, you summon a technician. And that's what a "doctor" is, in the allopathic / technocratic paradigm.

 

 

You summon him when something breaks.

 

He looks at the specific part that's not working, and then fixes or replaces that part.

 

And that's it. Then he leaves.

 

There's no need to know anything about the rest of the machine, as long as he/she knows what to do for the one part that "broke."

 

That's how machines work. That's how a car works. If your transmission isn't working, you fix the transmission, and then that's it.

 

 

And that's how this paradigm approaches human health. Like we're machines.

 

It's all about actions by the doctor - adjustments that he or she does, to you. From the outside.

 

And this reflects its origins in the materialist philosophy's exaltation of physical matter - the world outside - as the "only reality", dismissing the very existence of the world inside.

 

 

It views healing as something that must be obtained.

A product or service to consume. An extension of capitalism.

 

 

But naturopathic / holistic medicine acknowledges the world inside, in addition to the one outside, and focuses intently on the relationship between the two.

 

And so, if disease shows up, we entertain the possibility that it could be arising from within the patient.

 

It's a condition, or challenge, from the inside, manifesting in the physical body on the outside.

 

 

For example, if a person has atherosclerosis (heart disease), we'll try to figure out how and why the person got into such a condition in the first place.

 

What choices have they been making in their life, leading to this condition?

 

Have they been consuming animal products every day?

Beef and cheese and all of that?

 

Despite these industries being extremely cruel?

 

 

Have they been building up a lot of karma from contributing to the torture of animals?

 

Could that be manifesting in the form of their clogged arteries?

 

 

After all, the heart is the plexus of compassion - and if a person suppresses his/her compassion instinct regularly, and suppresses their spiritual heart, then could this have something to do with the condition of their physical heart?

 

 

This is a deeply inconvenient and humbling set of questions to ask. It's even downright offensive to some people.

 

"How dare you suggest that I made myself sick!"

 

"What a privileged, insensitive thing to suggest!"

 

"Hey! Stop blaming the victims!"

And this is where the allopathic / technocratic paradigm rushes in to "save the day", by helping the patient evade these questions.

 

It invented the idea of genetic determinism, to convince people that their diseases were written into them from birth, and there's nothing they could have done to cause any of it - and, more importantly, that there's nothing they can do to change any of it.

 

And then, to fill the hope void back up again, it rolls out the technology.

 

It builds a technological apparatus to "patch" the problem, so that you won't have to engage in any of that messy introspection. It shields you from self-knowledge. It absolves the ego of responsibility.

 

And it pursues that goal with more zeal than the goal of actually healing you!

It's more of a talisman against humility than it is "medicine."

 

 

Instead of teaching you how your choices led to your condition, it will just give you some pills, cut you open, rearrange your tissues, patch you up, and send you on your way.

 

It even goes as far as to treat disease as a foreign invader - an entity in and of itself - which must be "defeated." You can hear this in phrases like "Fight cancer."

And to "fight" this "war", it deploys the big guns, in the form of chemotherapy, which is a misnomer, as it is not a therapy in any way shape or form. It is poison.

 

 

The doctors admit this. They don't dispute the assertion that showering someone with nuclear radiation and pumping their blood full of toxins does not improve their health. It simply kills. It kills everything in its path. And the theory rests on the medieval, ghoulishly simplistic hope that the disease - the cancer cells - will die faster than the rest of the patient.

 

It's not medicine. It's violence.

 

 

In one paradigm, the body is a battlefield, and the goal is to defeat the enemy - to destroy disease.

 

But in the other paradigm, it's to cultivate health.

 

 

The holistic / natural paradigm builds health throughout the person's life, in every arena, and treats every day and every interaction as an opportunity where choices can be made, either to ignore health, or to cultivate it.

And in this paradigm, the role of a doctor is to teach the patient how to do that.

 

In fact, the word "doctor", which comes from Latin, literally means "teacher." He/she teaches you how to analyze your own environment and lifestyle choices, to help you understand the causes of their ailment.

 

A true doctor doesn't heal you - he teaches you to heal yourself.

Student and Teacher.

 

Vs...

 

Machine and Technician.

 

And it's obvious which paradigm is the right one. Think about this:

Although the technocratic paradigm has performed a lot of wondrous feats, it has also constructed the maddest society in history, and pushed our planet to the brink of ecological collapse.

 

Indeed, it has eradicated some contagious diseases, extended life expectancy, and solved a lot of other specific problems. And looking beyond medicine, to other fields, it has dazzled us with its cleverness.

 

It's given us cars, and TV's, and airplanes, and space shuttles, and iPhones, and the biggest and most diverse selection of entertainment ever available. It has hypnotized us with a stupefying array of shiny toys, flashing lights, and things that go whirrrrrrr and boooooom and weeeeeeeeeee!! But it has also produced a society in which the majority of people have debilitating mental illness, and cannot function (or even resist the urge to commit suicide) without daily psychiatric pills.

 

The technocratic paradigm has achieved so many wondrous things... but it has done so at an enormous cost - a cost so high, it's poised to outweigh - and even nullify - all of that impressive progress. How can we consider such a paradigm "successful", when it's destroying the fundamental life support systems of this planet, and thus endangering the survival of its own civilization? What does it matter how many flashy toys it produces, or how much it extends the life expectancy of the individual, if it destroys its own planet, and thus itself, along with all of humanity? The technocratic materialist paradigm has a terrible track record when you consider the fact that its whole history was one crescendo towards mass-suicide.

 

It was a failed paradigm. And perhaps it's not wise to listen to a failed paradigm on the subject of medicine. Perhaps technocratic medicine is just as foolish as the rest of technocracy. And it's very important to answer these questions soon, because the technocratic paradigm is guiding the response to the coronavirus situation, which could determine the future course of human civilization itself.

And if we let our response to the coronavirus situation be guided by a failed paradigm - one with a fundamental misunderstanding of reality - it won't fix the situation - it'll make it worse. And maybe lead to a complete societal collapse. Or a totalitarian fascist nightmare dystopia, where medical police form the new Gestapo.

 

 

 

And up until now, its dominance over the field of medicine has been mostly unquestioned. Only a few people on the fringes, like naturopathic doctors, have questioned the reigning paradigm. And they've been marginalized and belittled and humiliated and ignored by most people. And for a while, most of us were somewhat OK with this. We tolerated it. They weren't taking away our ability to practice our medicine - they were only denigrating it, with their words. We had an uneasy but stable detente. We would tolerate the technocratic paradigm reigning over other people's medicine as long as we got to keep our medicines. As long as choice remained. Truth be told, they did make some attempts to come after our medicines - like with "Codex Alimentarius", which was an attempt to severely restrict herbs and other natural medicines by force of law, and censor all information from naturopathic healers, to prevent the population from learning about it. But we managed to hold those attempts at bay, and they (mostly) failed. All in all, we've been able to practice mostly unmolested, with the notable and extremely important exception of people working with psychoactive herbs and fungi - the visionary flora. Even though many of us fought, we didn't fight like our lives depended on it. We always could relax, knowing that the two paradigms would respect each other's territory, and we'd be able to continue practicing ours, and the public would still have choice in which one they wanted to follow. But now, because of the coronavirus, and the global debut of medical fascism in response to it, we no longer have these excuses. Technocratic doctorism has now begun to force itself on us. They have forced us into a lockdown that's collapsing the economy and demolishing public health as it prevents the activities necessary for health to flourish. It has forbidden us from socializing, from exercising, and from getting sunlight - all things that are central to immune function. Quite ironic that they're engineering a mass-immuno-suppression in the name of fighting a "virus", no? They want us all inside our houses, all day, shivering in fear on our sofas, as the TV pumps us up with industrial-strength panic-porn. And what does chronic anxiety do? It suppresses the immune system. It sends blood from the internal organs to the extremities - the arms and legs - because, in our evolutionary past, "fear" usually meant there was something to run from - a tiger, a lion, a wolf pack, and so forth. Chronic anxiety keeps all the blood in our limbs, and away from our internal organs. It demolishes our health - including our immune systems. Quite ironic that they want us shivering in fear, suppressing our immune systems, in the name of fighting a "virus", no? In their frenzy to fight a virus, they're engineering the greatest mass-immuno-suppression in history. This is what you get when you allow a technocratic medical paradigm to reign. Soon the supermarket shelves could be empty, due to the economic collapse. In poorer countries, they're already empty. The WHO predicts that 200 million people in developing countries will starve to death as a result of the economic collapse brought on by the lockdown. 200 million people! Not from the virus - but from the starvation that the "oh so humanitarian" doctors just engineered - on purpose! This is what you get when you allow technocracy to corrupt medicine. They are not looking at the bigger picture. They are not viewing the coronavirus within the context of the total body of society. Their minds are literally incapable of doing so. In order to become doctors, they had to endure decades of training in medical schools to sabotage their ability to think holistically. As a result, all they're capable of seeing is their own narrow field, and they're completely oblivious to how their actions affect the greater whole.

We put these people there. We, as a society, elevated these people into positions of power and respect. We did this. We did it through our ignorance and complacency. All of our society's choices that we've been making in the past decades are now coming back to present their fruits to us. "The chickens are coming home to roost." And we're seeing, with an ever-shrinking lag-time, the relationship between all these causes, and their effects. These lockdowns are destroying the health of the body of society. And it's not going to stop there. If the technocratic paradigm continues to rule, then the lockdowns are just the beginning. The next step is the forced vaccinations. They're going to roll out a vaccine that they've just developed, and compel everyone to take it, under force of law. There will be no testing. Normally, vaccines have to go through 10 years of trials and studies before they're available for public consumption. But they're just going to roll this thing out, and everyone will just be expected to take it immediately. And they're going to force it. It will be mandatory. That's what they want to do. Now this might not come to pass - if we resist. If we resist hard enough, and overthrow these people, then they won't have a chance to enact this dark plan. But if we allow them to continue ruling us, then it's only a matter of time. And if we submit to the current lockdowns, our submission will embolden them, and they they will continue, and the next step will be the forced vaccination of every human being on this planet. You won't get to say no. They might not hold you down and cuff you while they needle you - it might not be that brutish - but they'll find ways to force you into it. They'll start by saying, "if you want to renew your driver's license, you have to provide proof that you've been immunized", and you'll need an "Immunity Passport" to prove your immunization status. The "passport" will then become necessary for an ever-growing list of activities. Boarding a plane. Crossing international borders. Trains. Buses. At some point, you'll need it in order to leave your house. The lockdown will not be lifted until everyone is vaccinated. Bill Gates (the vaccine kingpin) and Dr. Anthony Fauci, are on VIDEO admitting this. But it won't stop there. Once you need a little card or paper to leave your house, the argument will be put forward that it's "too inconvenient." After all, people will be forgetting them, and there will be situations where you step outside just for a minute, to go for a quick walk, and you'll have to be afraid because you didn't bring it with you... and "what if you get stopped and asked for your papers?" The solution offered will be the next step in the plan: to put all the info on a microchip, and then implant that under your skin, in your hand or forearm. And this will be coming out at the same time when Elon Musk is offering "Neura-Link", which enables you to live in an "augmented reality" via microchips implanted inside your brain. And compared to that, a simple RFID chip in your hand seems like nothing. The A.I. people are moving the Overton Window so far towards technocracy, that totally merging into a Borg is on the table. Compared to that, what's the big deal about a little chip in your hand? Then, once everybody has the chips, they'll tell us that we have to get rid of cash, because "cash has viruses on it." Credit-debit cards aren't much better, since they come into contact with card readers. The only safe way to perform financial transactions is with contact-less RFID scanning. The chip. You'll just wave your hand in front of a reader device. So convenient! And the chip will be the only way to buy anything at the store. Everything will be done with the chip, which means if you don't have a chip, you can't buy anything. You can't board a bus. You can't ride a train. You can't function in society without a chip. And if you have the chip, and the gov doesn't like what you're saying, and you're a dissenter, they can turn off your chip. And since there's no more cash, you can't go to those farmers markets for your food, because, even if they still exist, they'll require the chip too. They're aiming for complete totalitarian control of everyone and everything. They want to merge us with computers, and make us into a Borg. Does this sound like fun yet? Does this sound like the type of society you want to live in? The type you'd like for your children?

This is what you get when you allow technocratic doctorism to corrupt the field of medicine. This is the direction in which the technocratic doctorists are leading us. But...

 

Since the conflict has finally come to a head, we have the opportunity to shift the paradigm entirely. This is the hour in which Nature finally defeats technocracy.

When we free medicine form the clutches of technocracy, and have real medicine again, then our health as individuals and as a society will skyrocket, and we'll finally have the thinking abilities to solve the other problems - like ecological destruction, and war, and poverty, everything else. Shifting the paradigm on medicine is the beginning of the total liberation of humanity and the planet.

 

Healthcare - and more accurately, health - is the foundation of everything else in society. It affects our very ability to analyze problems. An unhealthy body makes an unhealthy mind - which, in turn, produces unhealthy solutions to problems. All those other issues you care about? The economy and the human rights and the animal rights and the environment and ecology and poverty and war and peace and all of it... we need healthy minds to solve it.



If a disease shows up in a particular organ, here is how each paradigm approaches it:

1. The holistic paradigm looks first at the person, in total, and seeks to learn what is going on overall.  What is going on in the other organs and organ systems?  What's going on in the gut?  In the microbiome?  In the spine?  And especially, in the mind?  What lifestyle is this person living?  What choices have they been making?  What spiritual issues are they dealing with?  What might their lessons be, that their soul is trying/needing to learn?  What challenges are they facing to learning these lessons?  Are they stagnating in one or more aspects of that process?  Could this stagnation be the reason why the disease showed up?  Could their soul be seeking a way to force the issue into awareness, by manifesting it into an unignorable physical ailment?  How can we facilitate this learning process to actualize, so that the physical ailment will no longer be necessary?  How can we help this person get in touch with their deeper self, their inner body, their heart and soul, to bring forth the healing, to activate the healing process that's already within them?  How can we help this body heal itself?

It's not the organ that's sick - it's the body.  The person.  And healing the organ proceeds from healing the person.

2. Meanwhile, the technocratic paradigm will look only at the manifestations of the disease (the symptoms), compare them with lists of symptoms they have in a book, generate a label to give the ailment, frame it as an independent actor, a force all its own - and then go to war with it.  Militantly atheist and materialist, without even the slightest modicum of tolerance toward anything mysterious or outside the current corpus of peer-reviewed scientific consensus, adherents of this paradigm fail to see the distinction between living systems and technology - between Creation and artifice - and therefore interpret it all like Newtonian physics, where an action can only be opposed by an equal or opposite reaction.  Instead of cultivating health, they seek merely to defeat disease.  Instead of honoring and nurturing the magnificent miracle that stands before them, so that that miracle might flourish (and in flourishing overcome what ails it), they instead reach for a wrench as if they're repairing an automobile part.  

The technocratic doctor thinks he heals you.

The holistic doctor teaches you to heal yourself.

In fact, he doesn't even do that, because you already know how to - you merely forgot. And he reminds you.

The word doctor means teacher.

When was the last time your "doctor" taught you anything?

If he doesnt teach you anything, hes not a doctor - hes a quack.  If he's treating you like an automobile with a broken part, that's quackery.  If he prescribes pharmaceuticals without seeking the source of the underlying problem, and merely seeks to manage symptoms, then he is aiding and abetting your self-destructive ego in avoiding the introspection necessary to truly heal, and he is therefore perpetuating sickness.  And doctors who perpetuate sickness are quacks.  That is the definition.

And the medical-industrial establishment is built on this quackery.  

And they have the gall to accuse holistic practitioners of the very same thing.  They call holistic medicine "alternative."

No.  The ancient way of 40,000 years is not alternative.

It's time for holistic medicine people to push back.  We've played defense for quite long enough.  We must now go on the offense, and take down the corrupt, evil technocratic medical industrial complex.

Never has doing so been more urgent.  As medical fascism takes shape in the coronavirus hysteria, it's now or never.  If we don't defeat the technocratic paradigm, it will defeat us - with catastrophic consequences for humanity and all Life.

The technocratic-allopathic paradigm that has corrupted Medicine for 100+ years is steering our response to this crisis.  




Everything they're doing is not only not helping, but making it worse.



#ventilators - when we need blueberries+broccoli.
#SocialDistancing instead of love.
#lockdown instead of exercise.

If the same paradigm keeps steering, off the cliff we go.

Theyre wrecking society to save bodies because they don't understand that bodies are constituents of society, and there wont be bodily health in a fascist totalitarian world with mass-censorship, irrationality, poverty, and starvation.

It's like they're doing chemo on all of society.  Just as chemo kills the body and its cancer, aiming to kill the cancer just a little bit faster than it kills the body... so too is the lockdown strategy killing the whole society while hoping to kill the virus just a little bit faster.

In both cases, they ravage the total system to fix a constituent of the system, because they don't recognize the total system as a system - but merely as a machine, a sum of disparate parts. Their minds are that disconnected from the realities of this universe.

These people should not be leading the response.

We let them get away with their quackery for all these years because we could always opt out, for oursekves.  But now, medical fascism has begun to force the technocratic paradigm upon us, non-consensually, backing up its agenda by the armed force of the state.

It's no longer something we can ignore or tolerate.  

The technocratic medical industrial complex has bitten off more than it can chew.  This is its Waterloo. 

 

Who pays for it?  A new angle in the debate over universal healthcare.

Good news, though!  It just so happens that the treatments designed to address disease after it arises are the expensive ones!  All of the advanced, complicated, allopathic procedures we've been arguing fiercely over how to fund, wouldn't even be necessary if we just stopped making ourselves sick in the first place!

That statement will, of course, be seen as "offensive" to those who are heavily invested in the allopathic medical system, due either to being employed in it, or to having already gotten sick and taken a large (not to mention expensive and extremely side-effect-ridden) amount of its "treatments."  If you've suffered for this system, part of you is going to want to defend your decision to rely on it, to avoid admitting that you made such a costly mistake.  That's how cognitive dissonance works.  That's understandable.

It may also be seen as offensive to anyone who has spent a lot of time and effort campaigning for programs to publicly fund those expensive treatments, like universal healthcare, Medicare-For-All, and so on.  The sentiment is noble.  A mature civilization DOES take care of its vulnerable members, and DOES NOT allow anyone to die from lack of medicine when that medicine is available but the person just doesn't have enough money to buy it.  A society that values toys for rich people above medicine for poor people is not a civilized society.

But the fact is, most of that expensive medicine just isn't necessary.  The stuff that is necessary is, by and large, the cheap stuff. 

 

Health is much cheaper than healthcare.

The entire public debate over healthcare rests on a key philosophical premise:  the belief that "health is expensive."  And the Earth Party questions that belief.  In fact, we reject it.  Health is not expensive.

 

And if something is expensive, it probably isn't health.  We can all afford medicine because the stuff we can't afford isn't even medicine in the first place.  Most of it is unnecessary, and actually downright counterproductive.  We can dispose of it, and focus on only the things that are actually medicine, which are almost all cheap.

 

Most pharmaceuticals are arguably poisons.  The most popular treatment for cancer - chemotherapy - is unarguably, undeniably poison.  Think about that:  trying to bring about health... with poison?

 

That makes no sense.

Health is cheaper than healthcare.  So why would we focus the debate on how to afford expensive healthcare, when we could achieve the same result without such expenditure by focusing on actual health?

The Three Levels of Focus in Medicine

Level 1

The first level is called allopathy.  It focuses on disease.

 

It's like a sentry, sitting atop a castle, scanning the countryside for signs of invaders.  Once it spots them, it mobilizes the army to attack and defeat them.  Then, once they're defeated, it goes back to watching.

This approach makes sense when dealing with infectious diseases:  bacteria, viruses, and the like.  After all, this is exactly what our own immune systems do! 

 

But the problem arises when we apply it to non-infectious diseases, like cancer, cardiovascular disease, and all the other long-term degenerative problems that constitute over 95% of our society's "healthcare" expenditures.  The fact is, this militaristic "search and destroy" attitude does not work on anything non-infectious.  You can't "hunt down and kill" a degenerative disease, because there is nothing to kill.  There is no outside invader.

 

The problem is arising from inside.  The bodily system has stopped being healthy.  And when it stops being healthy, the answer is not to "find something to kill" - it's to make the body healthy again.

Allopathy focuses solely on destroying disease, but it has almost nothing to say about creating health.  And even when it does make forays into this "positive" domain, it takes an extremely blocky and pixellated view of it, by breaking everything down into isolated units, while ignoring the totality of the mind-body system.  It tries to find a specific vitamin, hormone, or neurotransmitter that's in short supply, believing that once it finds out what's missing, it can simply add that thing - usually in pill form - and everything will be better again.  When you think about it, it's really just a continuation of the same old "search and destroy" mindset; just, instead of seeking an invader, it's seeking a chemical imbalance - and then, once it finds the imbalance, it targets and destroys it!

It still doesn't look at the mind-body as a whole unit.

So the first correction to our healthcare system is to evolve past allopathy. 

"So no one should use a regular doctor anymore?"

Not exactly.  Allopathy can indeed be useful in a few scenarios, specifically infections and physical accidents and emergencies.  If killer bacteria are waging war on you, then you need to defend yourself and fight back.  Allopathy is great for that.

If you broke a limb, you need a cast to hold it in place while it heals.  If you got shot, and there's a bullet lodged in you somewhere, you need a surgeon to go in and physically remove it.  All perfectly valid reasons to use an allopathic doctor.

And if you've got a degenerative disease, and it's gotten so bad that it might causes death or major irreversible damage within a short time - like, a few hours or days - then you've got an emergency, and it may be necessary to have an allopathic intervention, just to stabilize your system.  But, once you're stabilized, you'll need to look outside allopathy for long-term healing. 

If everyone followed that simple advice, it would eliminate around 9/10ths of current healthcare expenditures!

Because what most of us think when we hear the term medicine is not all of medicine - it's just a branch of it.  And a very strange one at that.  Its called "allopathy" or "allopathic medicine."  But that name is a misnomer, because it isn't really medicine.  So we'll just call it allopathy.

That's because allopathy isn't really about health.  It has nothing to do with health, actually.  It's focused solely on disease.  It does not create health - it just destroys disease.  It's like a gladiator, seeking out it's foe, zeroing in, locked and loaded, ready aim BOOM!  We got 'em!

It treats the body as a warzone, and medicine as a violent struggle.  

Folks, our descendents are gonna call us CAVEMEN for this garbage.

Ooga booga, me destroy disease!!!

This is not the way a mature civilization thinks.

Medicine is not a battle against disease - it's a process of cultivating health.

Allopathy - i.e. the expensive stuff - can be mostly disposed of.

It does have a few uses, like for a physical wound, like if you got shot, then allopathy is approproate.  Get that bullet out.

Or if you're under attack from vicious bacteria, it's a matter of self defense, so again, allopathy is appropriate.

And guess what?   Those happen to be the two cheapest fields of allopathy!  Most antibiotics cost pocket change, and surgery to remove foreign objects is far simpler and easier than organ transplants and other surgeries for chronic illnesses.

Chronic illnesses are the expensive ones, that eat up 99% of "healthcare" expenditures.  If we stop using allopathy for chronic illnesses, and use it only for the incidental emergencies it's appropriate for, that's 99% of the expenditures saved.  

Allopathy for emergencies only.

"What about chronics?"

Anything else, anything chronic, anything coming from within your body - an inner issue manifesting itself as an outward disease - then the answer is not external.  If the issue is internal, the cure is internal as well.  

For example, if a person eats gluttonous amounts of meat, apathetic towards the animals whose suffering produces it for them, chronically suppressing his or her empathy function, placing fleeting personal pleasures above others very lives, refusing to extend compassion to the living creatures who share the planet with them...

...and they wind up with cardiovascular disease...

...the proper medicine is not potions and concoctions from pharmaceutical conglomerates and chemical factories.  The medicine is compassion.  A compassionate heart is a healthy heart.  Heart disease is an unhealthy heart.  You heal an unhealthy heart by making it healthy again.  By learning compassion.

Pic of chem drum and hugging cow

If the person starts developing compassion, he or she will eat less meat - perhaps even stop altogether - and the arteries will clear up, and the heart (the physical one) will be healthy again!

Multi-hundred-thousand-dollar bypass surgeries are NOT required.  Just teach them compassion.



And if they don't know how to develop compassion - if they just have a hole in their soul that they don't know how to heal - then there is an entire cornucopoeia of visionary plants (and fungi) that are designed for dealing with exactly these types of situations.  And they cost pennies.  



Example, if someone has cancer, they can get chemotherapy for 500,000 dollars, or they can go to a shaman, eat some psilocybin mushrooms or peyote or ayahuasca, go on a vision quest, learn about how they created the sickness - what mental patterns led to the physical conditions, and what spiritual issues lay at the root of all of it, and come out of the experience CURED.  For real.  Not "symptoms under control."  CURED.  As in, no more symptoms to control.  

"Thats alternative."

No, thats normal.  Allopathy is alternative.

Allopathy is ridiculous.

Radiation isn't medicine.  It's poison.


"But those do cure.  Proven track record."

No, the body cures.  You have the blueprint in your DNA.  The body heals itself.

Some people cure their own cancer without any allopathic treatment at all, no chemo.  Allopathic pharmadoctors call it "spontaneous remission", and when you ask them why it happens, they just shrug their shoulders, call you a "pseudo-scientist", and get back to peddling drugs and radioactive isotopes.  

The body can cure itself, and it does.

"But so can chemo."

No, the chemo didnt cure it - the body did.  It just looks like the chemo did it bevause the person was getting chemo when the body cured itself!  The body cured itself, and the pharmadoctors attribute it to the chemo, just because it was going on at the time!  The cancer didnt go away because of the chemo - it went away in spite of the chemo.  The chemo didnt cure anything.

How do you know that?

Because chemo cant cure anything!  The entire notion is preposterous on its face.  Chemo is poison.  Poison cannot create health.

No, but it can kill cancer cells.

Yes, the cells - but not the cancer.  Cancer is more than just its cells - it's an energy pattern, originating from the mind, and ultimately from issues within the spirit and soul.  The abnormal cells come about because of that underlying energy pattern.  Killing the cells doesn't cure the disease - it only destroys its manifestation - and only for the time being.  If the underlying pattern is not healed, it will eventually manifest again.

And the way to do that is not with poison.  It's with health.  Poison and health are opposites.  You can't create one via the other.  





"But people today are sicker than people of times past, and thus need more, and stronger, medicine."

Then all the more reason to take real medicine instead of fake medicine.

"How can you call that fake?  It cures things!"  

No, theyre not medicines, they're just symptom-suppressors.  If they make a person feel better, it's because theyre suppressing the symptoms of the sickness, not replacing the sickness with any health.  







So if the old stuff worked, why did we switch to new?

Technocracy.  It diesnt solve problems, just identifies problems and gives us solutions that dont solve them but advance technocracy.  

If it can take a garden that once grew herbs, and replace it with a factory that makes pills, it considers this progress - even if the pills dont even work as well as the herbs!  Because its not about helping us, and was never about helping us - but only about advamcing itself, and it makes false promises to help us in order to do that.  

We didnt get healthier.  But the gardens turned into factories, abd thats what was important (to technocracy). 

"So what exactly is "beyond allopathy?""

Level 2

The next level of focus in medicine is holistic medicine.  It focuses on health.

Some people even spell it with a "w" - i.e. "wholistic" - because it treats the entire body as one whole unit.

Allopathy attempts to work by breaking the body down into specific, isolated components, and treating each component by itself.  But wholistic medicine "zooms out" to view  the entire body as one picture, and asks how a problem in a component arises from a problem in the overall system.

 

After all, we know that the body is a dynamic system, in which every part affects every other part.  If one part is sick, there must be a sickness in the overall system - and if we can address and heal the overall system, it will heal the specific sickness as well.

Instead of hunting down and destroying disease, we cultivate health. 

And the mind is the center of all of it. 

Beginning in the 1700's, the medical profession acquired a rather bizarre fixation on separating the mind and body.  They believed that the two were utterly distinct, and that the "newest, most advanced knowledge" in medicine lay in isolating them from one another, and any doctor who looked for mental causes of physical illness (or vice versa) was a quack from the dark ages. 

We now know, of course, that this was a wrong turn.  The body and mind are intimately linked - in fact, they're not even two things.  The body is the mind, and the mind is the body. 

For instance, if someone has

 

 


Almost all disease is unnatural diet and lifestyle.  That means the cure is natural diet and lifestyle as well.

Bad food choices (meat, dairy, and processed).
Bad food processes (GMO, monoculture, pesicides, petroleum-based fertilizers, package preservatives).
Air pollution
Noise pollution
Electromagnetic pollution


 


But some ppl still get sick anyway, not their fault.  This insults them.

Then they can go get treatments.  The difference is the system wont be overburdened.  No hordes of chronically sick people to deal with.  Just a few.  And the system can handle that, without a lot of expenditure.  Society should provide.  (But not thru taxes)..

Doctors currently overburdened because so many.  So many who made selves sick - or at least the insane social system they live under made them sick - and if they stop making themselves sick (and their society becomes sane again too), then doctors wont have to treat them.  

And with them no longer clogging the pipes of the healthcare system, it can easily (and inexpensively) treat the remainder who still get sick by chancr or by factors beyond their control.  







 

Level 3


Take a step back from individual and look at society as a whole.  Our society is our context, and we, like all living creatures, are not separate from our context.  If our context is sick, there is only so much we can do to heal ourselves.  True healing requires not only an individual to return to health, but to do so in a society that has also returned to health.  If an individual returns to health in the midst of a sick society, and doesn't have the rock-solid mental presence of a Zen master, then they're likely to re-sicken, eventually.  The only question is when.

True healing includes the healing of society.



Stop herding people into unhealthy lifestyles.  

Suppose we stop airing advertisements for soda.  Soda consumption goes down, people get less sick, and healthcare expenditure drops by 50 billion dollars a year.  Thats 50 billion cost reduced, without needing to spend anything or do anything.  And we're not even outlawing soda - just stopping the advertising of it.

"But how do you get the companies to stop?"

Shame them.  Make it no longer OK.  Boycott them, the way you'd boycott a cigarette company that handed out free samples at elementary schools.  Connect the healthcare issue to them - make them own it.  Because it IS connected - it's a prime factor!  

Also utilize the right to peace.  To not be subjected to impersonal urgings to consume addictive substances.  A person should be able to walk through their town without being drug-hustled.  No more billboards, no more ads for that crap.  We the People have the right to stop them.  Not viooating their rights


 

 

"Do you support government-subsidized healthcare / socialized medicine / Medicare-For-All / etc.?"

Socialism is a band-aid at best - it is not a long term cure.

Socialism is only necessary for the expensive treatments - the invasive, allopathic, Technocratic operations and Big Pharma McPills that don't even work, make the person sicker, suppress symptoms at best, and only exist in the first place because the corporate medical-industrial complex makes trillions of dollars off of them.

The stuff that actually works is almost free.

Allopathic medicine has its place.  It's useful in emergencies.  If you got shot, and there's a bullet lodged somewhere, an allopathic doctor is the right course.  If an ailment could be fatal within 72 hours, allopathy is good as an emergency measure.

But it is not a long term health maintenance system.  And 99% of the cost of healthcare comes from misinterpreting allopathy as a long term health maintenance system.  Long term health can be maintained without allopathy, for nearly free, and it actually works better.

The plant kingdom, for instance, can replace 99% of the pharmaceutical industry. How much does a leaf cost?  A nickel?

It costs nothing if you grow it yourself. 

Herbs cost next to nothing.

Exercise costs next to nothing.

Taking a walk in the woods or the park costs a round-trip bus fare at most.

Eating mostly plant-based costs less than the standard meat-heavy diet.  Fruits and veggies make you healthier while saving money (and making society more compassionate).

The best medicines literally grow on trees.

So why do we need socialism to stay healthy again, exactly?

Most of allopathy is ridiculous.  Poisoning and irradiating people is ridiculous.  Drugging them to forget their symptoms while ignoring the root cause of the disease is ridiculous.  Slicing and drilling into people is usually ridiculous.  And not only does socialism advocate such poisoning, irradiating, drugging, slicing, and drilling as a standard long term health regimen, but it further calls for robbing people - literally taking people's money away by force, and sending squadrons of armed men to their home if they refuse - in order to pay for it.

That is insane.

"Ok but what about those 1% of cases where allopathy actually is necessary?  What if someone has a gunshot wound?"

Reducing the allopathic industrial monstrosity to 1% of its current size will make it function smoothly.  It's like if there's a traffic jam, removing 10% of the cars can clear up 90% of the congestion.  When the behemoth has shrunk to a tiny fraction of its former size, local communities will be able to easily manage it, and bear the cost of keeping it running efficiently and free for those who can't afford it.  In the 1950's, the heyday of capitalism, hospital emergency rooms were socialized institutions, subsidized fully by either the government or church charities or both, and cost-free to the people who didn't have money to pay.  And nobody complained.

When healthcare (and more importantly, health) is properly understood, it's a tiny expenditure.  It won't be something for liberals and conservatives to argue about or worry about.

"What else can we do to promote public health?"

Some other very cost-effective ways for villages, townships, and cities to facilitate the health of the population:

 

1.  Hiking Trails

Expanded network of hiking trails throughout wilderness areas adjacent to major population centers.  ("construct" is a loose term, since no building is necessary - just clearing enough vegetation for a little footpath).

 

Additionally, municipalities expand their public bus routes to cover access to the trail-heads.  Every person, even those living in inner-city ghettos, will have cheap, reliable bus access to Nature.  Hiking is good for two reasons.  It is exercise... but so much more than that.  Nature has a positive, healing effect on all aspects of mind and body.  Simply BEING in a forest, causes immediate improvements in mental state and well-being, including physiological changes like relaxed heart rate, easing of blood pressure, and a host of other benefits.

 

Nature Kills PTSD In Combat Veterans

 

Even just planting trees along the sidewalk has been proven to benefit the health of people living near them. 

 

Revival of Herbal Medicine

Medical industry has been hijacked by big business, and is NO LONGER about medicine, but about profit.  As a result, we are sold treatments that don't FIX our problems, but rather simply drug us, and numb the pain. They put us on drug regimens that don't even CLAIM to heal us, but merely suppress the symptoms.  They do this because there's no money in cures - the money is in keeping people hooked and dependent for life.  But Nature has cures:  they're called herbs.  Herbal medicine has been practiced for thousands of years, is highly effective, and the only reason why anyone is skeptical of it is because the pharmaceutical industry has paid, bribed, and intimidated the scientific community and the mass media into suppressing knowledge of it and ostracizing its users and advocates.  And it costs almost NOTHING.  You can plant herbs in your backyard, or in a community plot.  Pills cost hundreds or thousands of dollars - herbs cost 99 cents for a bag of seeds.  

 

3.  Elimination of Poison from Diets

Stop eating garbage.  It's not a hard concept.  Toxic food additives will be banned.  MSG and aspartame, and a myriad of other poisons will no longer be allowed in our food supply, and the business executives responsible for marketing them will be prosecuted.  I'm not kidding.  When businessmen in China taint that country's food supply on purpose, they get hanged.  The least we can do with our equivalent is give them a nice, cushy cell in federal prison.  ​I will also make sure the public knows the truth about meat, and other animal products.  Overconsumption of meat and dairy is probably the #1 cause of health problems in America, and it's costing us TRILLIONS.  It's time to stop hiding the truth.  It's not bad to eat animal products, but it's bad to OVERconsume them.  The average American eats probably 20-30 times more meat than his body actually needs.  It's wasteful, it's cruel, and it's a trillion-dollar drain on our economy.  Time to change it.  ​Also, the need for preservatives will be eliminated when we start growing our food locally again.  When nearly all of our food is grown within walking distance of our homes, there will be no need to preserve it, and no need to add cancer-causing and other-disease-causing chemicals to it.  See "Localization of Food", under "THE PLAN" for more information about this topic.  Eliminating chemical preservatives will reduce the need for a large portion of our expensive cancer treatments, saving us hundreds of billions.

 

4.  Personal Responsibility

In the event that someone needs an expensive operation (hey, it's still needed in SOME scenarios), and they cannot afford it, there WILL be coverage from the government - but priority will be given to those who have taken personal responsibility in caring for themselves.  This will be measured by fitness center attendance!  All fitness centers will keep (secure) records of attendance, and whoever attends the most gets priority in the case of expensive procedures.  If two people are waiting for the same operation, the one who took better care of themself gets the treatment first.  (This shouldn't be confused with emergency surgeries. If someone gets a gunshot wound or something like that, there's no time to figure out whether they're a regular gym-goer.  Emergency medicine will be universal and unbiased).  But if someone doesn't even take care of their own body, why should the rest of us take care of it for them?  The system I have proposed has the added perk of relieving us from the burden of feeling guilty about the difficulty of funding procedures for people who don't even have the sense to care for their own selves.  We can let them fend largely for themselves without it burdening our conscience or our wallets.    ​

 

Health is simple.  Our big businesses and industries have convinced us that it's a mind-racking, convoluted, expensive process, but it is not.  The combination of a (true) healthy diet, comprehensive exercise, and traditional nature-based medicine is enough to keep 99% of people healthy 99% of the time.  By getting back to nature, and using simple common-sense, with a little dose of compassion thrown in, we can virtually eliminate the need for industrial healthcare from our nation.    

 



This is not alternative medicine.  We repeat, this is not alternative medicine.  This is standard medicine.  This is the oldest form of medicine.  Human beings have been using this medicine for over 40,000 yeras.  We've only been using allopathy for the past few hundred.  Allopathy is the altnerative medicine - visionary flora are the standard medicine.

When a person becomes ill, and it doesn't go away, then they need to use medicine, and medicine is visionary flora.  

But isn't that stuff against the law?

No.  It is absolutely not.  The law does not prohibit medicine.  Law cannot prohibit medicine.  The very idea of law prohibiting medicine is a nonsensical preposterous absurdity.  If something is medicine, then by definition it cannot be against he law, or else healing is illgal, and sickness is legally compulsory, and what kind of worldis that?  We'll tell you what kind of owrl di tis.  it's this one.  Thiat's why it so fucke dup.  Becuaes healing has been illegal.  what did you expect?  you made healing illegal.  What kind of world did you think you' were going to get?  why are you surprised?

Notice we said illegal, but not unlawfulo.  illegal means it goes against manmade codes.  But manmade coe have no authority in relatoin to actual law.  Visionary polants and fingu are 100% lawufl iunder real actual law, natural law, and if they're illegal unde rmanmade codes, then those codes are against he law, and the people who made them and enforce them are criminals.  

Visionary flora are lawful.  Medicine is lawful.  

And when the earth party come sto pwer we will make sure that our social practices and law enforcment respec this and acknoweldge this fact, and no one and we mean no one ever and we mean ever, has to worry at all, and we mean at all, about getting into any sort of trouble, whatsoever, because of thier use or responsible distribution of visionary plants and fungi.  

And furthermore, we'll make sure that the people responsoble for terrorizing us all of thse years face their own justice.  We will hold them accountable.  The ones who trie dto forcibly stop us from healing ourselves- they need to be held accountable for what they're done, and we will hold them accountable.  For more details, so our page on visionary plants and fungi.
