Taking Back Your Power in Health Care
I was dismayed recently to see an article on front page of USA Today on crisis in cost in health care. Basically, article was asking, “Who is to blame for continual upward spiral in health care costs.” Is it doctors, hospitals, insurance companies or individual needing health care?
I was dismayed because I had just come across a book about a “medicineless hospital” in China that has been effecting miracle cures for nearly two decades without use of drugs or surgery. Impossible you say? Quite opposite! The medicineless hospital uses science of Chinese medicine, namely Qigong (chi-kung) which are simple movements to allow body to regain energy (chi) which leads to abundant health. In this hospital, there are nearly 4,000 - 5,000 practitioners, doctors and patients all working together to allow health to return to body naturally.
One story about this medicineless hospital relates three “chi” practitioners sending chi energy to a patient on a table that was suffering from a cancerous tumor on his bladder. Within three minutes (while this was being recorded on ultra sound and video tape) tumor simply disappeared. That day, same thing happened with five other patients suffering from tumors. A miracle you say? On only outward appearances, it would certainly seem so. But they were simply doing what millions of others in China have learned to do, heal themselves naturally. And it can cost upwards to $70 per month for treatment in this hospital. And it sanctioned by Chinese government.
The thrust of this treatment in this medicineless hospital is self-responsibility. Instead of patient lying in a hospital bed, patient is actively involved in healing process, sometimes doing qigong exercises for upwards of eight hours a day. Many of these patients came to this hospital with life threatening illnesses only to have them disappear after a month or two. Through simple exercises and a change in their thought patterns their health returned.
After hearing of this, I wondered, why we have this crisis in health care. A day does not go by without hearing of someone afflicted with some form of cancer, diabetes, and a rash of other diseases. I believe, and have for some time, that being responsible for one’s own life will allow anyone to take back their power in regard to care of their health or any other part of their life. When it comes down to it, it is individual’s responsibility as to whether they are healthy or not. But when individual is responsible for their life, in thought, word and deed, then miracles really can happen.

September 11, 2001 was world’s wake up call. After chaos and confusion, we awoke to realization that life is a precious gift and that it is our responsibility as a citizen and human being to lead and live our best life. For most of us, that meant looking at our current state of affairs and recognizing all changes we needed to make. We often know it is important to change our lives, but do not know where to begin. Change can be easy, really---by changing your thoughts, you change your feelings, and thus change your actions. In 21st century, we have better skills to deal with darkness, and we are more enlightened and aware than ever before in history. Even still, it often has to get darker before it becomes lighter and brighter. But, in modern world, we do not need to wait until something happens to cause us to change. In fact, you can choose to live a change-oriented, rich, and fulfilling life right now. To transform your life, you need to raise your awareness, practice pro-activity, and live by your vision, purpose, and values.

The butterfly represents a thing of great beauty. A butterfly completely transforms itself from a comfortable cocoon into a radiant entity with wings. You are like a beautiful butterfly waiting to be re-born and transformed.
