What is the best health insurance? Is it the cheapest quote that offers you the most cover for all members of the family? Is it the middle quote that offers you a range of health care options? Is it the most expensive quote that covers every eventuality? Is it really any of these things?
Instead of considering the ever increasing mine fields of competing insurance companies (who all make a very handsome profit from you), I invite you to think about this question laterally. First, what are you hoping to gain from your cover?
For most people, this is reassurance that medical expenses will be covered if they, or any member of the family, become unwell. On the surface, this looks reasonable.
However, wouldn’t it also be reasonable to consider the causes of poor health? Wouldn’t that then put you in a position to avoid said illness, as well as the need for the accompanying medical expense? That would save you a whole pile of cash for starters. The bonus would be better overall health and the energy to do more, to play more. Isn’t that more appealing?
Another valid consideration is what type of health care do you use should you fall ill despite your best efforts? Most people automatically use the western medical system. But this system has at least two major drawbacks.
The first is the expense. Surgeries often cost tens of thousands of dollars. Cancer treatment parallels the purchase of a new family car. With global poor health increasing every year, the insurance companies are having to dig deeper into their profits. Something they pass on to you.
Did you know that over 60% of all personal bankruptcy in the USA for the year 2013 were due to medical bills? Clearly, many people can’t afford this system of health care. And not all countries have a national health care policy. Even those that do have long waiting lists.
The second reason is the efficacy of the treatment. Medicine, for the most part, does not recognise the wisdom of the body and its innate ability to heal itself given the opportunity. So medicines are suppressive. This means they squash the symptoms rather than help the body. When the symptoms go away, you can be fooled into thinking the problem too, has disappeared. But you would be wrong.
Medicines for life mean they are needed to subdue the body and its need to express a problem. Of course, this also leads to more problems. And it is this that leads on to a spiraling deterioration of health.
Real healing comes when the medicine is used for a limited time to help and support the body until it is no longer needed; that the body can now cope on its own.
In my understanding, the best health insurance comes from using a system of medicine that supports your body’s healing ability rather than suppressing it, that truly heals each condition without creating more problems. And it also comes from empowering you to treat some common acute ailments yourself, with confidence. Without going back into full time study.
There is little to compare with the efficacy and the cost of good homeopathic treatment for all the family, including pets and even plants. Good homeopathic treatment resolves conditions completely, even many of those considered incurable or hopeless. This is deep prescribing and is not possible for the lay person without years of study. You need to consult a professional homeopath for this depth.
But you can learn to use some of the common remedies for acute prescribing quite easily. Imagine being able to bring down a fever (holistically) in the middle of the night, within minutes. Imagine alleviating pain and stimulating rapid healing from an injury. Imagine stopping an allergic attack at the first sign.
The best health insurance comes from educating yourself about the causes of ill health and from choosing a system of health care that truly heals your problems, both on the inside (mental, emotional, spiritual) and on the outside (physical). Good homeopathic treatment offers you the best in health care without the expense, without the need for bankruptcy.
