What To Do When You Cannot Afford Health Insurance
by Dr. Robert O. Young
First let's state unequivocally, "Yes, Virginia... except for some surgical requirements, e.g., hernias, or broken bones, etc., YOU CAN BE HEALTHY WITHOUT having medical insurance, or even without being able to afford to see a doctor."
I want to say. "ALL dis-ease symptoms are caused by systemic acidic imbalances in the body", BUT I try not to use the words "Never", "Ever", or "All". As sure as I do, there will be some "exception", which, while rare, will catch me up. I will say that the extreme "majority" of sickness and dis-ease conditions do not and cannot exist in a properly alkalinized human body. Over acidic conditions from lifestyle and dietary choice cause the symptoms, which we define as "dis-ease" states.
You will note that I hyphenate the word "disease" as "dis-ease", because I cannot bring myself to acknowledge that "diseases" even exist. There are, in fact, "symptom syndromes", or collections of symptoms, which when identified, are given "names" in the medical lexicon. Once a "name" is given to a Symptom Syndrome, then it gets diagnosed, and pharmaceutical companies set about to produce drugs to ameliorate the symptoms. None of these drugs addresses the underlying cause of the dis-ease symptoms.
For example, there is NO disease "out there" such as Diabetes, just waiting for us to catch it. Diabetes is a Symptom Syndrome, which is caused by systemic over acidic conditions in the body resulting from our bad lifestyle and dietary choices.
So, what do you do when you want / NEED to be healthy without the intervention of the medical / pharmaceutical complex? What can you do when you can't afford health of dis-ease insurance?
FIRST - Begin to 'GREEN UP YOUR DIET"!! Begin to eat more salad greens, broccoli, green beans, celery, cucumber, spinach, avocados, asparagus, etc., Get the picture... GREEN FOODS! Lots of them!
SECOND - Get the high "acid ash" foods completely out of your diet. NEVER EAT THEM! Examples are ALL carbonated beverages, ALL sugars and ALL high carbohydrate foods, especially particularly sweet fruits.
THIRD - Get ALL animal proteins out of your diet! This will be a hard point for many of you. I had a client who told he went through his pantry and got rid of everything that had "animal protein" in it, and he said, "I didn't have ANYTHING LEFT TO EAT!!" You may have a similar experience. It is truly culture shock to realize how many products you daily rely upon, cannot be eaten by anyone who wants to avoid the doctor, and who wants to be healthy.
FOURTH - Get ALL animal, processed and trans fats and ALL Saturated Fats out of your diet. Eat only monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, such Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Hemp Oil, etc., and eat A LOT of them. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, from GREEN fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts should be a primary source of electron rich and electrically active food and drink in your diet.
FIFTH - Drink LOTS OF ALKLAIME WATER!! Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate. Drink ONLY pure, filtered alkaline water. If the water in your area does not have a pH of at least 8.0 or higher, you will need to pH correct the water. You can purchase alkaline drops to add to your local filtered water. It would be wonderful if you can obtain a structured water machine, which will not only properly alkalize your water, and filter it, but will also correct it to the proper ORP (Oxidative Reduction Potential), which should ideally be in the -150 mV or greater range. If you can't afford a machine to correct the ORP level of your filtered water, DO NOT let that keep you from doing the things you can do. Get a water filter, and filter your water. Get some alkaline drops and correct the water pH to at finished pH of 9 or 10. DRINK 1 liter of pure, filtered, alkaline adjusted water for each 50 lbs. of body weight. The degree to which you think this is a lot of water, is an indicator of how much trouble your body and health are in... water....adequate hydration is THE most critical thing you can do to improve your health. Your body should be over 70% water, and CANNOT function and be healthy without proper alkaline hydration.
SIXTH - Get out in the fresh air, and BREATHE. Oxygen is critical for health. Breathing deeply not only helps to maintain proper alkaline / acid relationships in the body, but also is critical for virtually every metabolic process in every tissue of the body. Don't count on your natural breathing, reflex to get all the oxygen you need. Do at least 15 mins. of deep breathing exercises every day. Take a slow, deep breath through your nose... hold it for a count of two, and exhale slowly through your nose. Count to two, and repeat. Do this for at least 15 mins. EVERY DAY! In addition, try to get in 4 or 5 such deep breaths as often during the day as you think about it. BREATHE!!
SEVENTH - Get some alkalizing "SALT" in your diet. I don't mean refined table salt. Start with a good sea salt. Our blood closely resembles the saline content of the oceans. YOU NEED SALT! The definition of "salt" gets a bit complicated. "Salts", at their simplest structure, are metals which are connected by single bonds only and do not have Hydrogen atoms connected to them. Don't get bogged down with this technical definition. I only mention it to say that the human body contains a lot of alkaline "salts" besides just table salt, i.e., Sodium (the metal) plus Chloride, NaCl. The human body critically includes a number of "salts" of several metals, e.g., Potassium, Calcium, Sodium and Magnesium, known as "electrolytes". It is difficult to get enough of the proper relative quantities of these inter-related salts without the proper diet I have set out above.
I formulated a food additive called, pHour Salts, to help with adequate intake of the four main electrolytes. If you have access to a supply of pHour Salts, it will really help, but if you don't - do not despair. If you don't have access to pHour Salts, get some good sea salt or pHlavor spray mineral salts, and try to eat the darkest green foods you can obtain.
EIGHTH - Monitor you own health. Get a few packages of "pH Test Strips". Test both your urine and saliva. They are excellent indicators of the proper healthy tissue environments in your body. Each tests a different tissue environment. Check both your urine and your saliva. Check the first urine of the day and your saliva before eating anything in the morning, and then a few times during the day. If you find that your test results are below 7.0 correct immediately, either with a little pHour Salts, or eat a bit of particularly alkaline food, e.g., cucumber, broccoli, asparagus, avocado, etc.. You will quickly get the hang of what corrects your test results the best, and what doesn't.
I like to use the acronym, C.O.W.S., which stands for CHLOROPHYLL, (OXYGEN and OIL), WATER and SALT.. The proper balance of these four elements through proper eating and dieting, will result in robust health, and WILL KEEP YOU HEALTHY without the traditional frequent visits to the doctor. Getting the proper balance of these four intakes WILL keep you healthy WHEN YOU CAN'T AFFORD HEALTH INSURANCE.
So, if you find yourself without health insurance... the situation may truly be a blessing in disguise, IF it gets you to take control of your own health instead of contracting it out to your doctor and local hospitals. GET HEALTHY AND STAY HEALTHY! You can do it without health insurance or doctors!
