(NaturalNews) For those seeking more practical and more affordable health insurance policies, here are five that can be implemented daily for real health care reform in one's own life.
One: Clean water
Drink an adequate amount of water that is mostly free of fluoride, heavy metals, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. This plan, which costs a few hundred dollars up front for a family, involves the purchase of a standalone activated charcoal and reverse osmosis water filtration system that is capable of removing fluoride and arsenic. This practice will keep the pineal gland from calcifying and protect the brain from heavy metals, opening up the pathways for cellular defense and greater cognitive function.
Activated charcoal filters will remove contaminants like pesticides, drugs, plastics, lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum, as the cells are freed from toxic environmental exposure. Maintaining filters may cost less than $100 a year, making this policy affordable for almost any family. The cost may be offset entirely if the family stops drinking from costly plastic water bottles which also put off endocrine system disrupting chemicals like bisphenol A and phthalates. Purifying water and drinking from a glass will change one's quality of life drastically.
Grow and trade for food and herbs grown from organic heirloom seeds and natural gardening methods. This will not only reconnect one's spirit with the Earth and the origins of nutritional health, but it will provide real, living food, great for cell nourishment, thus preventing disease. This plan is based on keeping food local and supporting farmer's markets, while concurrently lessening one's reliance on processed and GMO garbage food. The price of this plan is based on a person's gardening know-how and accounts for factors such as networking, bartering and trading with organic farmers at local markets. Fruits, vegetables, super foods and herbs can be juiced or made into smoothies, powerful for disease prevention.
Implement chelating methods which target and remove heavy metals and endocrine disrupting chemicals from the body. This policy requires each person to engage in their own understanding of their body and its signals. Learning about blood, colon, liver and kidney cleansing techniques as well as nutrient absorption is essential for this strategy to work. Affordable detoxifying substances like turmeric root, bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar, strawberries, burdock root and zeolite among many others could be used with super foods like spirulina, chia, amalaki, flax, hemp and chlorella to cleanse and re-power the body. This policy can be learned and implemented at home, but can be made more effective with the guide of a qualified naturopath or chiropractor.
Four: Sunlight and exercise
Go outside and soak in some vitamin D from the sun. This policy will not only brighten one's mood but also activates the immune system. Throwing in some exercise will definitely benefit this policy, with the sweat pulling out the bad while the sun brings in the good. This is the most free universal health care plan available, yet is commonly disregarded.
Five: Overcoming fear
Don't adhere to fear-mongering ads projected by pharmaceutical companies and government insurance propaganda. These ads paint the individual as an irresponsible imbecile, incapable of taking care of self. In this video, the first speaker says that young people are unable to use basic kitchen knives, that they are incompetent "knuckleheads" who stand on bar stools and hurt themselves. Take a look at this Obamacare ad database that depicts people of all ages as promiscuous alcoholics who cannot take care of themselves.
By seeing through this propaganda and refusing to act in fear, one can feel empowered to take control of their own life and make decisions that promote real health care.
By trusting in yourself and your own research, one can thrive beyond stereotypes and herd mentality. Each day is a learning opportunity; no one has to live in dependence, in pain or in fear of cancer. There are alternative ways of thinking that empower individuals to take care of their health by making quality living more affordable.
