Unhealthy Nation


The purpose of this website and blog page is to offer you accurate information and to provide a strategy on how to uncover your natural heritage of good to excellent health. Your human body is designed to be a vehicle for dynamic talents, labors, and life enjoyments.  However, we are inundated and programed with misinformation that enslaves us to illness and health problems.  Fear and intimidation have become basic techniques in health care practices, my goal is to replace that fear with knowledge. 

Each day, millions of Americans take medication for high blood pressure, sleep aids, antidepressants, aspirin,  decongestants, and many other over-the-counter or prescribed medications.   However more than 160, 000 Americans die from taking the wrong prescriptions or they suffered from serious side effect of the drugs.   In the United States it is ironic that we take more prescription drugs than other countries, yet we live shorter lives.  In Europe and Asia the use of herbs is much higher, herbs are used as the first line of defense against adverse health conditions instead of the more invasive medical treatments.

Despite having the most expensive health care system, the United States ranks last overall among 11 industrialized countries on measures of health system quality, efficiency, access to care, equity, and healthy lives, according to a new Commonwealth Fund report. The other countries included in the study were Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand Norway, Sweden Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. While there is room for improvement in every country, the U.S. stands out for having the highest costs and lowest performance.

Please help pass this information and blog presence along to others so that we can form a integrated team dedicated to solutions not problems.
