I'm looking forward to the day when the word alternative is removed from the title. The healing modalities termed alternative are the true healing methodologies, far superior to allopathic medicine. For some very strange reason, allopathic medicine is synonymous with health care when it actually has little or NOTHING to do with health care. More aptly, allopathic medicine is disease care. It merely addresses symptoms with drugs, surgery, and other mostly unnecessary treatments, while doing NOTHING to address the cause. Furthermore it promotes a variety of so-called health screenings which are essentially money making scams to fleece the public and scare the crap out of us. IMO, the best thing that could happen during this financial meltdown is a complete crash of the so-called health care system as we know it.

I couldn't agree with you more NewAge. The health care system is so far removed from care that it's sickening. Hopefully these corporate CEO's will crumble along with the finacial meltdown and we can start rebuilding a true system of healthcare, where all forms of medicine are covered and treated the same way.

What up wit dat?!
Girlfriend has her ND practice out here, so I've been spending time here figuring out the area and telecommuting for work. Looks like I'll be moving in the Spring after 36yrs in BoCo. Exciting and scary at the same time. Maine ain't Colorado, but at least there's the ocean and it's lush and green. Oh, and the little issue of selling my house...

Shuffles, you gonna LOVE the summers! (P.S. Don't try shootin' the squirrels in Maine, they have learned how to shoot back.)

I may not be going anytime soon unless this bailout scam really helps things or not.

Back on topic, the girlfriend caught a cold last week, then I was fortunate enough to pick it up in time to come home with it.

The homeopathic stuff she was giving me didn't seem to do a damn thing, but Ibuprofen takes the edge off...
