Children's deaths test faith healing exemption - William Mccall, Associated Press Sunday, November 30, 2008 04:00 PST Oregon City, Ore. -- When Dr. Seth Asser saw row after row of flat headstones marking children's graves in a small cemetery not far from the end of the historic Oregon Trail, he knew many of these early deaths should not have happened. Read more...

EDITORS NOTE: This is a challenging issue, as where do people really draw the line? How many of these children would have died regardless, even without Mainstream medical? If Medicaid, Medicare, or Insurance were to acknowledge holistic and natural practice, many might consider this to compliment the faith healing. There is a whole realm of healing modalities that DO work, outside the AMA approved MD's approach mandating the use of chemicals and surgery.

The time is now: Reform health care THE REGISTER'S EDITORIAL • NOVEMBER 30, 2008 - De Moines Register - "There is no way to solve America's economic problems without solving health care," said U.S. Sen. Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Read more...

EDITORS NOTE: Obama mentioned his health care ideal of allowing one a choice of their own doctor. I would like to see a plan that would support the "health care practitioner" of their choice, regardless of whether or not they are an AMA approved MD, chiropractor, etc. For too long Medicaid, Medicare, and insurances mostly share little support for natural and holistic oriented pros, while providing big money for pharmaceuticals, surgery, and chemotherapy. This needs changed drastically to really give people a true choice.

Read more...

EDITORS NOTE: We as a society need to approach soldiers returning home with tremendous compassion and care while helping them to readjust to life outside a war zone.

Read more...

EDITORS NOTE: Much more needs to be done in the United States to get fair funding for Natural Health Care and Organic Products, that could literally save our country $billions if there is a way to get Medicare, Medicaid, and Insurance to support these interests. Canada seems to be taking the lead right now in health care modalities, yet both countries could utilize more finances for holistic healing research.

Obama's bid for health care reform could sink or soar President-elect faces clear challenges in putting together proposals By Guy Boulton of the Journal Sentinel Posted: Nov. 8, 2008To the list of challenges facing President-elect Barack Obama should be added one more: expectations. And health care reform ranks high among those expectations. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: True health care reform is one of the most important issues our Government faces. For too long, the AMA [American Medical Association] with their "puppet MD's" have had a strangle hold on insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid, while very little money [if any] is allocated to holistic and natural health doctors. This obscene practice has led to $trillions being spent on pharmaceutical drugs, chemotherapy, and [many times unnecessary] surgeries, while natural herbs and nutritional therapy are simply not prescribed. To allow the latter could potentially save many lives, while saving our country $hundreds of billions. Do your part and demand that changes be made, by calling congressmen, senators, and other government officials, asking them to include authorization that funds natural health modalities without having to go through the AMA approved doctors.
