I'd remix this to bring in the video when Ken says "Our kids don't believe it" -- getting the good job etc.   Interspersing her comments with KR's research points would be very strong.    But still leave us gasping for the alternative.

So I can put a GPS chip in my kid's shoe and never worry about her wandering too far away from my ZipDrone app that can send up a LocatorPal (™) and find her.  Somebody else might want to put an order in for say 100,000 of these little guys, program them to flock across the horizon, carrying god-knows-what.  Maybe not good will.  Oh hell, make it a million.

Although the law now forbids insurers from discriminating against any licensed provider in a state, adherence to the law actually depends on how each state implements its provisions.  So that adherence is going to depend on the forcefulness of the provider community in each state, and their patients, to demand that their insurers comply with the law.  Some objections are based on a presumed "added cost," which of course is a misperception.

According to these panelists, more than 30 millions Americans who use non-reimbursable therapies every year are dupes.  The US Military and VA health systems that now make acupuncture, meditation and other therapies available are dupes.  Sens. McCain and Blumenthal who want military medicine to include non-opioid pain therapy options are dupes.  57 of the nation's top medical schools, including all the really "top" schools, are dupes for operating Centers for Integrative Medicine where clinical treatments and research trials are conducted.  The nation's primary cancer treatment hospitals - i.e., MD Anderson and Sloan Kettering -- are dupes for providing integrative therapies, to say nothing of Cancer Treatment Centers, which advertises naturopathy and mind-body medicine.   The state medical licensing boards are dupes for licensing chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths and others disciplines.

They apparently believe that everything there is to know about treating illness, injury and disease is already known.  So that whatever brain imagery shows about the effect of meditation, for instance, is invalid, even when it accompanies recorded reductions in stress. 

Apart from being hung up on nomenclature, what strikes me most about these sentiments is that they speak to a level of incuriousness, of lack of imagination, which, if we are ever to overcome the dysfunctions in medicine, are essential to moving to a rational view of human health that respects learning, experience and professionally-delivered outcomes.  The professionals who concentrate on underlying causes of disease, of treating symptoms where they can with the least invasive therapy first, of listening to patients, and the patients themselves who want more and better personal knowledge -- they are all learning.  The sentiments of this panel, still far too widespread, do a great disservice to how we continue to learn about health and healing and getting to optimal personal well being.

This is without question the best summation of the potential that is now available to establish meaningful resources and institutions around the objectives of health creation.   The common themes Berwick sees emerge from the work of Davidson, Ornish, et al can actually be assembled today and placed into K-12 curricula.  Their embers are there: in school gardens, cognition-bolstering exercise, environmental awareness, nutrition and mindful schools.  With enough commitment and re-direction of resources, wellbeing can get to parity with care.

Story
Tagline
A consultant in integrative health, medicine and wellness initiatives.
Introduction
Integrative Health and Wellness Strategies describes the work I am doing through digital and social media, consulting, and the formation of initiatives that expand health and wellness options generally and into enterprises where sustainable change in health and lifestyles is possible: K-12 schools; green development; retail fitness, spas, wellness and primary care; and into employee wellness programs.

Optimal wellbeing should be the primary objective for health-related policy and programs at all levels in the US.  I am interested in organizing the market factors in ways that reflect and accelerate reaching that goal.
