Are you ready? Reality strikes: Healthcare stock crumbles under the pressure of Obamacare
Cold, hard reality continues to confront Obamacare and all its economically illiterate dictates. Right now, the stock market in the healthcare sector is beginning to show signs of greater problems to come. For instance, healthcare services company HCA Holdings Inc. took a major hit November 7th, after SVP Christopher F. Wyatt sold 3,152 shares of the stock. The transaction of nearly $250,000 sent the stock into free fall. HCA Holdings is comprised of 168 hospitals, 116 freestanding surgery centers, three psychiatric facilities and a rehabilitation center.
Investors are selling stocks in the healthcare sector, and this could have a ripple effect greater than previously imagined. HealthSouth Corporation also saw major sells during election week. View ZeroHedge to see the fallout.
American medical system desperately needs reforms for the people, not the investors and drug companies
Important reforms to the American medical system are inevitable at this point. The medical system is overdue for a radical revolution, but this time insurance companies, drug companies and Wall Street investors should not be writing policies that work only in their favor.
As the Obamacare boondoggle crashes in on its own policies and brings down the healthcare sector with it, Americans will be willing to try something new. With Donald Trump and a Republican controlled Congress at the helm in 2017, major reforms will have to be enacted. The newly elected government can start by lifting the government’s price controls which allow brand name drugs to own a patent monopoly for many years. By lifting the price controls, generic drugs and cheaper alternatives can compete in the marketplace, ultimately bringing down healthcare costs.
Other freeing changes could occur very quickly, allowing for healthy competition that would drive down the cost of healthcare. For example, if midwives were openly incorporated into the medical system, unnecessary interventions during birth would be mitigated, allowing for drastically cheaper birthing costs. A University of Sydney research team found that midwifery care throughout pregnancy equates to a greater percentage of spontaneous onset of labor and an unassisted vaginal birth. Midwifery patients were also 10 times less likely to undergo an elective caesarean than women with private obstetric care.
The incorporation of naturopathic medicine itself is important in preventing high cost medical interventions. Other important changes could include making natural medicines more accessible. For example, if medicinal cannabis was legalized nationally, then patients with cancer, seizures and other health problems could access a cheaper, natural medicine that provides significant results. Patients wouldn’t have to suffer with opioid addiction. They wouldn’t be cursed into a cycle of expensive radiation and prescription pill routines.
Medical system moneymakers such as vaccines could be put under greater scientific scrutiny. Toxic substances in the vaccines that lead to adverse events could be eliminated altogether to prevent further hospitalizations, doctor visits, illness, autoimmune conditions, allergies and early funerals. See VAERS data to understand the problems and costs that vaccines add to the medical system.
Reality is coming for Obamacare, the medical system and you. Are you prepared?
Everything is about to change in healthcare. Are you ready? What methods do you use to take care of you and your family’s health?
Is your water truly purified of heavy metals, pesticides and drugs?
Do you include plants, herbs, berries and other superfoods in your diet?
Are you incorporating movement into your daily routine for good blood flow and lymph detoxification?
Is your digestive system working properly?
Are you destroying your microbiome and digestive system with unnecessary rounds of antibiotics?
Are you receiving enough minerals from your food to help your body assimilate vitamins?
Are you receiving healthy amounts of sunlight for vitamin D production to protect against illness and cancer?
How do you handle your emotions and the stresses of life?
Are you getting adequate, restful sleep?
As reality confronts Obamacare and the healthcare system, it will also confront you if you are not taking the necessary steps to take care of your own health and remain independent of routine medical system dependence and intervention.
