Freedom - Ours to Keep or Lose


Happy July 4th! Some Thoughts on Freedom from Dr. Myatt

Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans. I hope you're enjoying the day and finding ways to celebrate American Independence. For the record, I'm proud and grateful to be an American and glad I live in the USA. Although we're not as free as we used to be, we're still freer than the rest of the world. I truly give thanks for that.

As the Founding Fathers knew, the way we remain free as individuals is because we each have a voice and a vote. If we fail to exercise our freedom to speak and to elect our officials, then we get the government we deserve. That is why I continually encourage you to be pro-active. It's the only way we can continue to enjoy the freedoms that we do, health freedom included.

When It Comes to Health, Are You Really Free?

I'm not going to rant (at least not today), about how the FDA and other government organizations act in the best interests of Big Business and curtail our health choices in the process. No siree, I'll save that for another day.

The "freedom" I inquire about is that of your own making. Are you a self-imposed prisoner to the insurance companies and Organized Medicine? No one imposes that on you, you know. Such enslavement is entirely a personal choice, but one that many people have blindly been led to choose. It doesn't have to be that way.

What do I mean? For example, I know many people who stay at a job they hate because of the Medical insurance. They'll buy a big-screen TV with "surround sound" for thousands of dollars and pay out of pocket, but if insurance doesn't cover a $97 test, they'll complain and moan and won't have it done. And under that guise, they'll remain a prisoner of their medical coverage, all by choice. Then there are the folks who have a shiny new "Bass Boat" or ATV or other expensive toys, all of which they are more than happy to find monthly payments for, but who complain that they cannot possibly afford medical insurance - so they and their families do without and then complain even more bitterly when one of them has an accident on that ATV and needs medical care...

Perhaps for these reasons for at least some people the socialized medical care that Michael Moore is advocating in his latest movie "Sicko" really would be the best solution - not that it is "free" (as you know, "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch!"), but that it would force them to have some sort of "sickness insurance" paid for with their tax dollars.

But then, could that be yet another kind of enslavement? Bureaucrats deciding what medical care you may and may not have? Drugs are OK, but nutritional supplements are not?

You, as an American citizen, will decide, either through your actions or your inaction. As a democracy, the future of The United States Of America rests with you. Remember that your elected representatives as well as your governmental bureaucrats are your employees - and not the other way around!

Just some thoughts on this 4th of July as we celebrate our independence and our freedoms.
