There is a lot of talk these days about the healthcare system and what can be done to provide more insurance to individuals in need. But what if the concept of insurance was actually one of the problems with the United States healthcare system? What if the problem was seeing Western medicine critical care as the fix to functional health problems? What if the problem is our reliance on diagnostics versus the knowing of our own body?
When I was experiencing major medical issues a decade ago, medical professionals and specialists performed a myriad of diagnostics but none could determine my illness, because at that time there was no diagnosable illness. I was in the preliminary stages of illness. I had just noticed that I was not functioning as well as I had before. If I would have followed normal thinking, I would have simply taken more and more painkillers until years later the intensity of my symptoms lead to a major breakdown of my systems to a point doctors could remove organs or prescribe medications. Thankfully, I looked for other ways to improve my well-being before it became too severe.
