DO YOU LOVE YOUR NATURAL THERAPY OPTIONS?
17 Natural Therapies have been scrapped from Private Health Funds from 2019 and what you can do about it.
Both Major parties support this.
MANY NATURAL THERAPIES are under the pump at the moment and an NH&MRC review of them that is currently at an OMBUDSMAN due to many potential flaws is being used to discredit and drop the Private Health Insurance from the Health Funds.
The review has found NO EVIDENCE OF BENEFIT TO THE PUBLIC for the following therapies.
The list of in scope therapies is below:
- Alexander Technique
- Bowen Therapy
- Herbalism/Western Herbalism – Most drugs are made from herbs/plants no evidence ?? really …hmmmmm
- Homeopathy – Currently being reviewed by the Ombudsman and is used in MANY Hospitals overseas. Has always been witch hunted.
- Massage therapy including: I must admit I have ALWAYS felt better after MASSAGE! Need one right now!
- Deep Tissue
- Lymphatic Drainage
- Myofascial Release
- Remedial (This one was not included as PHYSIOS are referred to by the Drs listed with AMA…Hmmm)
- Sports Therapy
- Therapeutic – how is this different?
- Naturopathy – hmm there is so much evidence here.
- Tai Chi
- Yoga – found NO BENEFIT to public health
ALL the MONEY you have been paying your Health Fund for many years.. will be irrelevant and in 2019 you will not be able to claim a rebate for PREVENTION and WELLNESS to help support your family and your own health.
This means and excuse the sarcasm, I have been told it is a sign of intelligence LOL!
You will however be able to line up for that HIP operation and wait in line until they can fit you in for that operation for that uncontrolled metabolic disorders or cut that leg off if you haven’t been able to go see a Qualified Natural Medicine Practitioner trained in nutrition and gut microbiome, functional natural medicine to help recover and work alongside your Doctor from that CHRONIC HEALTH DISORDER.
WHAT DO YOU PREFER? THIS IS WHAT I PREFER …
I know what I would prefer. I would prefer to CHOOSE how I spend my money on my health.
I would prefer to have this review on 17 Natural Therapies completely dissolved and an INDEPENDENT PANEL with INDEPENDENT Medical and Natural Therapy Evidence rich professionals SHOW the unbiased evidence.
I would like the Government to LISTEN to the millions of people in Australia and worldwide who are turning to Natural Medicine Practitioners when all else is lost.
I would like each and every one of you to follow the strong lead by the NATURAL MEDICINE ALLIANCE AUSTRALIA and prepare the following ACTIONS and do one a day asap.
