THE MEDICARE WAR IS UPON US…
Medicare’s Victims: How the U.S. Government’s Largest Health Care Program Harms Patients and Impairs Physicians
By

Dr. David Hogberg

HEALTHCARE ANALYST: Dr. David Hogberg, is a former senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research. He is author of Medicare’s Victims: How the U.S. Government’s Largest Health Care Programs Harms Patients and Impairs Physicians.

Remember Barack Obama’s infamous “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” promise? Or the reality that keeping the health plan or doctor you liked was never actually guaranteed under Obamacare?

National Center Senior Fellow David Hogberg, Ph.D. calls this one of the “biggest lies of Obamacare.” Worse still, there is new legislation in the U.S. Senate that he says will “repeat one of the worst features of Obamacare” in a way that would increase health care costs and decrease coverage.

In a new commentary published on the American Thinker website, David reports that, at the behest of big insurance companies, the “Lower Health Care Cost Act,” introduced by Senators Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray, essentially establishes new price controls on health care similar to the “community rating” scheme under Obamacare.

Congress created the Lower Health Care Cost Act to resolve the issue of surprise medical billing, which occurs when patients with insurance receive coverage in facilities outside of their network in isolated, emergency situations. However, David surmises this bill is less likely to protect against unexpected medical costs and high prescription prices as it is to further separate patients from the plans and the people with whom they want to work, all while serving as even more corporate windfall to the insurance companies that have profited off Obamacare.

David believes that rather than impose price controls, the best way to solve surprise medical billing while protecting consumers’ interests is through arbitration, which other bills, such as Stopping The Outrageous Practice of Surprise Medical Bills Act, propose.

ABOUT: In Medicare’s Victims, you’ll read the intimate stories of patients and physicians who have struggled with Medicare, and then you’ll learn how the particular Medicare policy has caused their plight. The patients who are victims of Medicare are often the sickest of the sick, whether it is the disabled who are on Medicare’s two-year waiting period; seniors who fell into Part D’s donut hole; or patients who are harmed because they receive too much treatment or not enough. The physicians who are victims are ones who struggle to provide the best care for their patients while Medicare’s reimbursement system, in effect, punishes them for it. They all tend to have one thing in common: lack of political power. For example, people who are seriously ill are relatively few in number. As such, they do not have the numbers necessary to impact elections. Further, people who are ill are generally not engaging in the networking, meetings and other activities necessary to form effective political organizations. Thus, Congress seldom feels the pressure to change the policies that harm these people. In the end, you’ll learn how we can reform Medicare so that patients and physicians are put in control of their own medical decisions and, thus, will be much less likely to be victimized.

BIO: David Hogberg was senior fellow for health care policy at the National Center for Public Policy Research. He has previously worked for Investor’s Business Daily, the Office of Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, the Capital Research Center, and the Public Interest Institute. He has a B.A. from CSU Sacramento, an M.A. from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa, all in political science.

Five science-backed health benefits of molecular hydrogen

Five science-backed health benefits of molecular hydrogen

An Interview with health & wellness educator, Shawn Holland

A few decades ago, a series of mysterious healings took place in the small German town of Nordenau. Stories circulated that residents who drank water flowing from a spring in a nearby rock quarry were experiencing spontaneous remissions of illnesses such as diabetes, tumors, stomach pains, and bowel inflammation. The healings soon became known as the “Nordenau Phenomenon.” (1)

Researchers who investigated the Nordenau Phenomenon concluded the healing was related in part to a high concentration of hydrogen molecules in the water being consumed by the townspeople. Thanks to the discovery made in Nordenau and similar discoveries of healing, hydrogen-rich waters elsewhere in the world, a safe and effective medical treatment was born: molecular hydrogen therapy.

What have scientists discovered about the health-enhancing power of hydrogen since its medicinal value was revealed to the world some 30 years ago?

“Clinical studies focused on the health benefits of molecular hydrogen have documented the molecule’s anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, and anti-cancer properties,” says health and wellness educator Shawn Holland of HYEST Vitamins. “We are now entering the age of hydrogen-based healthcare.”

FIVE SCIENCE-BACKED HEALTH BENEFITS OF MOLECULAR HYDROGEN

Hydrogen acts as a powerful antioxidant

Hydrogen has been shown to protect cells against highly damaging free radicals.

Hydrogen boosts your energy level

Your mitochondria are the powerhouse of your cells, which makes them directly responsible for your energy levels day-to-day. Clinical studies on hydrogen-rich water have found that it improves mitochondrial function

Hydrogen helps protect your brain cells

Hydrogen has been shown to reduce damage to the brain in Parkinson’s patients.

Hydrogen helps improve mood and quell anxiety

Reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation in the central nervous system relieved negative emotions and social phobia.

Hydrogen can speed up sports-related recovery

Hydrogen has been shown to reduce muscle fatigue and lactic acid buildup.

A NEW PROTOCOL FOR HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTATION  

“In current dosing protocols, water is infused with hydrogen gas and consumed, or hydrogen gas is inhaled. Both delivery systems are inefficient.  Using a new protocol, a hydrogen-producing compound is taken orally and hydrogen is generated within the stomach.  Once that occurs, the hydrogen atoms circulate via the bloodstream and enter into every cell easily due to their extremely small size. Efficiently supplementing your body with hydrogen in this way is like adding premium fuel instead of regular fuel to your cells’ metabolic capabilities. Additionally, you’re removing those things that interfere with the cells’ metabolic capabilities by capturing free radicals,” says Holland.

SAMPLE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS

What is hydrogen?

What is hydrogen’s primary function in the human body?

How does supplementing the body with hydrogen improve health and well-being?

What is the best way to get hydrogen into our cells and tissues?

How does one feel after taking a dose of hydrogen?

Can someone consume too much hydrogen?

Can someone have a “hydrogen deficiency”?

In clinical trials, what health issues have responded favorably to hydrogen supplementation?

Your company has formulated hydrogen-based supplements to target three specific health concerns.  Tell us what you’ve developed and why you targeted these areas.

Where can listeners go for more information?

ABOUT SHAWN HOLLAND

Shawn Holland is health products educator and media liaison for hydrogen-based supplement makers HYEST Vitamins.  Mr. Holland comes to HYEST Vitamins after a multi-year career with Pfizer, Inc, during which time he educated physicians in major hospitals and medical centers on Pfizer products and their methods of action. Moreover, he helped launch high-profile, new category entrants into the pharma world with first-in-class therapies like Celebrex (the world’s first COX-2 inhibitor) and Aricept (the first drug for the treatment of Alzheimer’s symptoms).
