We are in the midst of a health care crisis in our nation.
As one of the few technologically advanced countries without
a national health plan, we have created a system of medicine
that threatens the very health we are bound to protect. Navigating
this system is everyone’s problem – whether you need care
or are helping someone who does. Adding alternative medicine
to the mix makes it even more complicated. The old way no longer
works. We must become more educated and activist if we want
to get the most out of conventional or alternative medicine
and if we are to survive this rapidly changing environment.
This is the only sensible way to approach a health care system
that is becoming as dangerous to our well-being as the illness
it treats. Reclaim your power in the health care process –
your life may someday depend on it. This is health care
with an attitude!
