Our health insurance and medical cost

As mentioned earlier and also highlighted in my book Leaf to Life: Unlock nature’s secrets to true health, health insurance premium will continue to rise due to larger medical bills, greater healthcare consumption and increased use of newer and costlier procedures and medical technologies.

I believe our health insurance will not be enough to catch up with the rising medical cost. Added on are the difficulties many encountered in the claim process.

I recently cancelled my critical illness insurance policies. It is very expensive and I thought the money could be wisely spent in business investment or my own health care needs.

What should we do?

I had a young patient who came to see me for breathing difficulty. He went through many tests in the hospital and found nothing (money spent). I looked at him and taught him how to breath correctly. He was also given a herbal oil for chest application. After 1 day, his problem was solved. Another case – a lady was suffering from chronic gastric pain and was asked to do endoscopy and other screenings. They found nothing. She was given 6 months antacids for the pain. Instead I coached her on eating habits, stress reduction and prescribed fennel tablets for her digestion. She was cured a week later.

Unnecessary medical screenings (and yes you pay for them) are often used without looking at the fundamentals.

We need to return to Viriditas – the greening power described by Hildegard von Bingen (nature medicine) to solve the health crisis. This is why I kept asking you to work on the 7 Letters of Wellness and 9 Credos described in my book. It is the most complete protocol for disease prevention and rejuvenation.

Invest time to learn natural medicine, in particular herbs and lifestyle medicine and you will save time and money on insurance and hospital bills. In addition, you will realise self healing, self empowerment and self discovery. Isn’t it wonderful to have such a lifestyle?
