My prayers and best wishes go out to Ted Gunderson, a true American hero.
Your advice about staying out of hospitals is right on and sad to say, I'm sorry about what has happened to Ted. Most people are not aware of the iatrogenic situations which kill thousands every year and it's unfortunate that Ted is in a life-threatening predicament because he relied on the hospital to help him.
Many people are very concerned about their health and worried about their health insurance, be it medicare, work-provided or individual. I know people who are on as many as 15 or 16 prescription drugs. It starts with one or two and goes up from there until they are drugged out, dumbed out and broke.
Instead of focusing so much time, attention and money on our health insurance and reliance on the allopathic medical community to take care of us, we, as a nation, need to focus on our health and learn to take care of ourselves, demand healthy food or grow our own, exercise and keep a good mental attitude. Years ago I realized my health was going downhill and I had to do something about it because the medical community left much to be desired. I read, I went to lectures, I took courses and later I got a degree as Doctor of Naturopathy. Today, at 75, I'm working full time, walking 2 to 3 miles a day, growing my own food, and having the time of my life. I take no prescriptions. Once a year, I have some lab work and the results are always optimal. I once had an MD ask me, 'You're over 70, how come you're not on some prescriptions? And how are you getting this kind of a lab report?' She didn't understand me when I told her what I did and how simple it was.
True, we need some health care reform, but the president, the congress, and the insurance, medical and pharmaceutical industries should have nothing to do with it. (That system is in chaos.) It has to do with each and every one of us being responsible for ourselves and our families. Like so many other freedoms which we, as a nation, have given away, we have surrendered our individual rights to be responsible for our own health and placed it in the hands of an uncaring, souless mega-conglomerate. The turnaround is as close as the information on your website (thank you).
I'll get off my soapbox now, but I hope I have opened a doorway for some of your readers.
