Health Care vs. Sick Care – What Do You Need?

It has been said that in ancient times, Chinese physicians were paid only when their patients were in good health. This gave them the incentive for preventative care and explains why Chinese Medicine was designed for health maintenance – to keep you from not getting sick or in pain.

Compare that to the current health care model in most countries.  It is sick care and designed largely to fix a problem once you already have it.  This is the model most of us are familiar with.

As my teacher said, “Better to have a stool with three legs rather than two”.  This means that we can utilize the strengths of each model for optimum health.  Traditional Chinese approach for daily wellness, and a conventual Western approach using all the updated scientific technology for acute and emergency problems (car accident, major surgery, cancer, etc..).

The big question is, which healthcare do you need?
