HOUSTON, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Americans spend over $1.5 trillion every year on health care. With insurance premiums and deductibles skyrocketing, the U.S. health care system remains among the worst in the world. In 2014, the Bloomberg index ranked America’s health care system #50 out of 55 countries.
According to the Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Center, nearly 70 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug daily and more than half take two. This trend isn’t without grave consequences.In 2014, prescription drugs were responsible for nearly 48,000 deaths. Further, The BMJ warns that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in America.
Dr. Edward F. Group III, CEO of Global Healing Center, has studied the root cause of disease and poor health in America for over 20 years and has determined that our current health care system does not align with promoting wellness and prevention-based medicine.
“Our existing allopathic model treats the symptoms of disease, not the root cause. It does not encourage wellness or disease prevention,” said Dr. Group. “The root cause of disease is the accumulation and exposure to toxins that pollute our air, food, and water. We know they damage our health, make us sick, and harm the earth.”
Lifestyle modifications are known to dramatically reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes, which make up the majority of health care spending. About one-third of Americans rely on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and spend over $30 billion yearly on health-related expenses. Most pay out of pocket because insurance doesn’t cover treatments. This has to change if we want to reduce our health care costs as a nation.
Medical freedom is under attack in America. Regulatory agencies and insurance companies dictate treatment guidelines and often exclude preventative and alternative medicine from coverage. Americans deserve the freedom to choose the health care they prefer and have their treatments covered by insurance providers, the VA, and Medicare and Medicaid.
As part of true health care reform, Dr. Group is requesting President-elect Donald Trump to focus on three primary areas of action
- Address the Root Cause of America’s Health Problems
- Establish Freedom of Choice in Health Care
- Appoint an Independent Wellness Advisory Board
Dr. Group asks President-elect Trump to assemble a team of scientists, experts, and independent researchers with no ties to the pharmaceutical, food, or chemical industries to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of all artificial ingredients, genetically modified foods, artificial sweeteners, colors, dyes, fluoride, herbicides, pesticides, phthalates, refined sugars, preservatives, and other toxic compounds added to, or used in our food and beverage production. He also recommends appointing a third-party research team with no ties to the pharmaceutical industry to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of vaccines and flu shots.
Dr. Group is volunteering his time, efforts, and expertise to begin this conversation and work towards healing America. America can’t be great again until we make America healthy again.
Contact President-elect Donald Trump at https://www.donaldjtrump.com/contact or at his twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) and ask him to appoint an advisory team to address the root cause of our health care problems in America.
