President Obama Supports Alternative Medicine in New Healthcare Plan

Preventative medicine and alternative therapies will have a place in President Obama’s new healthcare plan.  In a town hall meeting in Arnold Missouri, as released on Whitehouse.gov in Remarks by the President April 29, 2009, President Obama addressed a question related to alternative medicine and it’s future within the newly proposed healthcare program: Q    I’m a licensed acupuncturist and licensed massage therapist in Florissant.  And so — THE PRESIDENT:  I could use one right now.  (Laughter.)  My back is stiff.  I’ve been working hard. Q    I’ll be happy to help you.  (Laughter.)  And this kind of fits into what you were just talking about as far as health care.  I’m wondering, as a practitioner of Oriental medicine, knowing that the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization has discovered through their studies that alternative medicine often is more cost-effective and very effective, how will alternative medicine fit in your new health care program? THE PRESIDENT:  Well, look, my attitude is that we should — we should do what works.  So I think it is pretty well documented through scientific studies that acupuncture, for example, can be very helpful in relieving certain things like migraines and other ailments — or at least as effective as more intrusive interventions. I will let the science guide me.  We just swore in an outstanding new Secretary of Health and Human Service, Kathleen Sebelius, former governor of Kansas.  (Applause.)  It’s good to see that a Jay Hawk got applause on this side of the border here.

Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET)

NAET is drug free and non invasive technique designed specifically to eliminate allergies of all types and intensities as well as allergy related disorders. This technique was discovered in 1983 by Dr. Devi Nambudripad. Dr. Nambudripad uses a unique combination of selective testing procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological concepts to balance the natural occurring energies of the body with the electromagnetic energies found in ones living environment. The unsuitable energies include the energy frequencies emitted by all substances, living and non-living. These may include things such as foods, chemicals, pathogens, grasses, pollens, medicines and others. Dr. Nambudripad defines an allergy as a condition of unusual sensitivity of one individual to one or more substances that may be inhaled, swallowed, or touched and which are harmless or even beneficial to the majority of other people. According to the NAET theory, the ingested, inhaled or contacted allergen triggers an immune system response which may lead to a host of different symptoms which may include, but are not limited to slight itching, swelling of tissues and organs, runny nose, severe asthmatic attacks, fatigue as well as full blown severe anaphylaxis. In addition, contact with the allergen may produce a condition known as allergy related disorder which may include symptoms ranging from common colds to severe infections; learning disabilities to autism and ADHD; anger and clinical depression to schizophrenias; mild joint pains, arthritis of different types and intensities, small cysts and skin eruptions to tumors and growths; angina, high blood pressure and strokes. According to Dr. Nambudripad the “unusual sensitivity” is due to an energy imbalance between the electromagnetic energy...
