It’s about time!
In a move that’s been 10 years in the making, the mainstream has FINALLY taken a small step toward accepting safe, time-tested healing approaches.
One of the top health authorities in the world has just validated a set of natural therapies that have been used by hundreds of thousands of people… for THOUSANDS of years.
But the rest of the mainstream isn’t going down without a fight…
They’re doing everything in their power to SUPPRESS any existing evidence that supports the use of traditional medicine… and make sure no FUTURE evidence ever emerges!
Here’s why they’re WRONG… and why they should EMBRACE this new change… but never will.
Why so bent out of shape?
For the first time ever, the World Health Organization included Traditional Chinese Medicine in its its “International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems” (ICD).
This just-approved version makes the use of TCM “optional”… and BURIES its mention in the last chapter of the guide.
But at least it doesn’t CONDEMN it… the way that much of the REST of the mainstream has tried to do.
In response to the announced latest version of the ICD, the mainstream media has kicked up a FLURRY of complaints and criticisms… accusing the WHO of recklessly promoting unproven quackery.
Once word about the latest version of the ICD got out… and the mainstream was up in arms about TCM’s inclusion in it… the WHO backpedaled.
It’s “not an endorsement of the scientific validity of any Traditional Medicine practice or the efficacy of any Traditional Medicine intervention,” WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic claimed.
Technically, he’s right — because that’s not even the point of the ICD.
It’s not a treatment handbook…
It’s a tool – in fact, ONE tool out of MANY that docs should be using.
It simply provides additional diagnosis codes to doctors.
That way, PROVEN complementary therapies — like acupuncture — can be BILLED to your insurance… and not YOU.
With an “official” diagnosis and billing code, your plan is more likely to cover it… or at least cover MORE of it.
Including TCM also acknowledges how disorders are sometimes diagnosed differently in areas of China, Japan, Korea, and other parts of the world.
Other international cultures recognize – and have for AGES – that the path to healing can often be found in nature.
Not every country is as gung-ho about pharmaceutical drugs as the U.S. is!
The mainstream, however, wants to sweep TCM under the rug by OMITTING it — even though that will turn a blind eye to any TCM-related deaths (a critical statistic in determining safety).
More TCM-related deaths will certainly be reported… but not because more people will DIE.
We’ll just have a better way of tracking those causes of death.
That’s exactly how the mainstream COVERS UP the deaths caused by medical errors – estimated by the BMJ as the ACTUAL #1 cause of death.
Of course, that’s not an “official” statistic, because…
There’s NO CODE for it in the ICD!
Unfortunately, the 11th edition of the ICD won’t be implemented in this country until 2022.
In the meantime, you’ll probably have to pay out-of-pocket for acupuncture and other alternative therapies.
But ask anyone who’s been HEALED by these approaches… and they’ll tell you it’s worth it.
