It may seem obvious that any time is a good time to be well, but it rings even more true now than it did even a couple of decades ago. The threats to our health are continuously growing, and even places that are deemed safe and therapeutic have become contaminated.
So why is it more important than ever to stay out of hospitals?
Conventional medical care is expensive, dangerous, and not natural. If you live in the U.S., you have the most expensive health care in the world, and unfortunately, it also ranks dead last in quality of care among industrialized countries. In fact, the U.S. spends more money than the 10 biggest spenders combined! In simple terms, the U.S. medical system is extremely bloated and about to explode.
If that is not insulting enough, recent research reveals 210,000 lives are lost each year by preventable hospital errors! If you choose to include diagnostic errors, failure to follow proper guidelines, and omission errors, the number climbs to 440,000 preventable deaths each year! Turns out that these errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., immediately after heart disease and cancer.
Add to that, the spread of superbugs (bacteria that have adapted in ways that antibiotics no longer affect them) has become a seriously growing threat according to the World Health Organization (WHO). A recent report shows that 2 million people are infected annually with antibiotic resistant bacteria, and 23,000 die as a result.
Hospitals and waiting rooms are full of sick people with many different types of contagious, airborne infections. So there you sit, waiting, bathing in EMF’s radiating from all kinds of electronic devices, breathing in air contaminated with viruses and bacteria while snacking on vending machine garbage or eating your hospital fare: canned soup, crackers, and low quality apple juice. Not exactly a recipe for well-being!
Hospital stays can also cause psychological harm by disrupting your day-to-day routines with sights, smells, and invasive procedures that are anything but normal. The combination of sleep deprivation, poor nourishment, hospital procedures, and medications can be devastating to anyone, especially the elderly.
Last, but certainly not least, there are several conventional procedures that have arguably contributed to the deterioration of many people’s quality of life. Whether it’s chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, antibiotics, prescriptions, or vaccines, all of them carry a significant risk that damages the vitality of the body and sets the path for a declining quality of life.
Without the knowledge, motivation, or resources to offset these residual negative effects through more natural means, the former patient may be headed toward more disease, or possibly even death. To learn how to avoid that, read The Thriver’s Lifestyle.
All these facts and many more make it very apparent that the hospital is a place you want to avoid at all costs, unless you have severe trauma or a surgical emergency. To this end, make it a goal to become well enough that you can avoid hospitals and the predictable decline of your health and pocket book that accompanies it.
