BodyTalk – Complementary Or Standalone Healthcare System

BodyTalk in fact falls into the category of Energy Medicine and is not all invasive or prescriptive. A BodyTalk Practitioner does not do any invasive procedures and neither diagnoses nor prescribes anything. This makes BodyTalk an excellent healthcare system that can be used both on a standalone basis or it works very well as a complementary healthcare system too.

BodyTalk is ideal when used on a standalone basis when one is fundamentally healthy but just wanting to maintain and improve overall health and balance of the various aspects of oneself; physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual. BodyTalk is great in helping one balance the experience of normal daily stress and discomfort. By using BodyTalk on a regular basis one finds that in general one heals faster and more easily.

BodyTalk is also very helpful in a situation where someone is already receiving other physically based treatments; whether they are alternative or traditional. Because BodyTalk works on an energetic level and is not invasive, there are only two possible outcomes from the treatment.

Most people find that they benefit from a BodyTalk session and usually feel much better for having had one. Because BodyTalk is not at all invasive, if a session is found to be ineffective, then the person simply experiences no change from having had a session.

For many years it seems that one had to make a choice between alternative or traditional medical treatment. More and more, however, people are taking the best treatment from both disciplines and applying those to one individual. One is finding that doctors from both disciplines are working together, and some doctors themselves have studied both disciplines and then they pick an appropriate treatment or combination of treatments from both disciplines.

BodyTalk is effective whether used on a standalone basis, or when used in combination with other healing disciplines.

What Physicians Can Do to Prepare For the New Healthcare System

There has been a great deal of discussion about the new health care reform and whether or not it will affect the business of medical malpractice insurance. Although it has been said that there will be no changes in the business of insurance, there will be many changes in the healthcare industry as a whole. Regardless, now is the time for physicians to prepare for these changes.

It has been estimated that 32,000,000 people will be added to the healthcare system. With such a dramatic increase in people demanding healthcare, there will be an enormous amount of paperwork to process. Likewise, doctors will most likely need to increase their staff because there will be new patients who will have many questions or need help filling out paperwork.

One of the things that physicians can do to prepare is to do a thorough review of their policies and procedures to make sure that there is an established system in place to take care of administrative tasks. The more organized an office is, the easier it will be to process patients’ billing and paperwork.

Another way that physicians can prepare for changes is to make sure every person on their team is properly trained. Everyone has to be on the same page when it comes to caring for patients. This has always been the case, but now more than ever physicians have to be more mindful and conscious of how they are treating people. Providing quality health care will be the determining factor on whether or not a person continues to seek care from a particular physician.

Under the new healthcare reform bill, physicians will be rewarded for high quality, efficient care. There will be increased payments to Medicare Advantage plans that demonstrate care and significantly improve quality.

The bottom line is that physicians need to be flexible and adapt to the inevitable changes in healthcare that will take place in the following years. Keep an open mind and always be on the lookout for ways to improve patient care.

Cash Cow For Crooks – Our American Healthcare System

The American Healthcare System is pandemic in fraud and that needs to be taken care of first before we can save real money in the system. We could save multi-billions if the system was revamped and the opportunity for easy money was eliminated. I know what a debacle our healthcare system is in, I spent months preparing my company for Medicaid and Medicare approval. It reminds me of taking a dry towel every 5 minutes to dry off when you’re standing in the rain. There seems to be no end to redundancy and complexity. A system in complete dissaray and bleeding profusely.

I know this as a fact since I spent months getting the necessary requirements for my companies approval for Medicaid and Medicare. Just to get the process started you have to get approved and checked by no less than three clearing-houses. What a nightmare.

Lately there has been a lot of talk about IT and cross operational platforms to help reduce costs and save us from high medical expenses. Our government and most consumers havn’t got a clue how our Healthcare System works and how the system has turned into a “Cash Cow” for the crooks. The system is ‘Bleeding Profusely”, and it will take more than a bandaid to fix it.

The consumer is over charged every step in the process, all the way to bankruptcy. I read an article how in 2007-2008, 61% of bankruptcies were caused by medical bills, this was up from 27% just a few years before.

Yesterday I was having lunch with an elderly man 70 yrs old and he asked what I did. I told him very proudly. Sir I distribute premium medical equipment and supplies and my company carries the best crutches, forearm crutches, bedside commodes and bed tables in the country. He could tell I was passionate in what I did and he told me his story. He retired from General Motors and he that was a diabetic he then mentioned that his co-pay was $11.00 every time he went in for a check-up. The doctor usually rushes him through but recently spent approx 10 minutes with him and he appreciated it, until he checked out. It seems the doctor charged his co-pay $33.00 this time. Well lets do the math, for 10 minutes he charged $20.00. That equates to $120.00 an hour.

Oh now if the co-pay was just 20% of total bill then that leaves a bill of 50 minutes more he can charge for and the Insurance would pay for. We know he charges $33.00 for every 10 minutes. This is a patients portion, so $33.00 times 5 is equal to $165.00. so here is what you have. Whether the man or the insurance company pays for this a total cost that the doctor is billing just for a check-up is $198.00. This is not $198.00 an hour it’s almost $200.00 every ten minutes or $1,200 and hour. I don’t care how you cut this it is wrong!

It gets worse. This doctor hasn’t even started charging for any scripts or extras he can bill for. This happening in my own backyard and I’m sick of it!

In every facet of the healthcare process everyone is overcharging and no one is watching the ship.

Significant savings can occur by supporting preventative care, wellness programs and education. Throw real money at this so people will follow and use recommendations. Unless we have a system that provides monetary incentives for better health, consumers won’t use it.

Health abuse and expense occur with the foods that are recommended and are so-called healthy. My pet peeve is our ludicrous diet with all the non-nutritional foods being marketed and promoted as healthy. It’s causing our society to be obese and psychologically we depend on it, many of the additives and artificial ingredients are causing severe mental and physical problems, they have addictive properties and exacerbate current and future medical conditions. Examples include diabetes, headaches, MS and other neurological conditions.
