My husband and I are 64 years old. We have not had health insurance for 7 years. We go to a Naturopathic physician. Ironically, my son is an ER physician in Calif. I would really like to see Nathuropaths and Homeopathic physicians take a more public stance on wellness, healthy living, supplements, etc. With President Obama's emphasis on healthy living, it seems a perfectly natural role for, say, The National College of Natural Medicine, in Portland. My son the ER doc says that 9 times out of 10, when someone comes into the ER, he can tell whats wrong just by looking at them and talking with them. But, because of liability issues, he is bound to run a lot of expensive and time consuming tests before treating. Obama wants to stop defensive medicine, but we need leadership, real leadership, in taking care of our bodies. Will the natural medicine schools step up???
