Thankful for my Good Health and Healers 11-25-2021

Real Estate Broker/Owner with KD Realty - 408.972.1822 CA DRE#01366594

I am thankful for doctors and all medical staff. They are human and as such they make mistakes. I avoid them as much as possible.

I do get my annual screenings but even something as simple as that is subject to error. Most recently, after seeing a doctor for the first time she ordered the annal mammogram screening.

Doctors note the history of breast cancer on the screening orders. This doctor’s note as to which breast had cancer was WRONG!

I called the office to get clarification on what that note meant. Does that indicate the breast that had cancer or the one that did not?

They offered an apology and directed me to correct it.

We must all be vigilant and check for mistakes because doctors make mistakes. I am thankful I have the wisdom to know this and the courage to always ask questions! 

There were other mistakes made as well in terms of the wrong codes for insurance billing. This turns into a major time suck for patients (me) working to get them corrected. I pay a hefty premium for insurance. I should not receive an invoice for procedures that are covered by my insurance because the WRONG code was used. 

Thankful for Good Health and Healers

I attribute eating a clean organic vegetarian diet combined with working slow and steady as she goes, not grinding every day, although there are days that are a grind, getting good and plentiful sleep to my good health.

I do not take any pharmaceuticals or over-the-counter drugs.

If I have an ailment, I seek treatment from healers. What do I mean by a Healer? A healer supports the movement of the system toward wholeness.

What do I mean by Health? Achieving optimum connection and balance within and across systems.

The body is comprised of many systems.

I see an Osteopath that works wonders.

Acupuncture treatments cure all kinds of ailments medical doctors prescribe pharmaceuticals to treat.

This past week I have had two 90-minute medical massages. These are not the spa-type “feel good” massages. I am fully clothed and no oils are used. These treatments work to stretch and align my body using ancient techniques from Thailand. In Thailand, these techniques are referred to as lazy man’s yoga.

I am thankful for my good health and ever so grateful for all the healers in the world. They are truly a blessing to me. 

This is my Day 10 entry to the Thanksgiving Challenge 2021

Hi Kathleen - oh I could so go for that lazy man's yoga stretch!  Perhaps there is someone in my area that is a natural area.  There is  stretching place but I didn't find that very relaxing, the vibe was off.   Have a wonderful day today!  We are so blessed!!

Kathleen it is good to hear you are in good health and continue to be cancer free.  I know what you mean about billing errors I think everyone has them, and they are a pain to get corrected.

I am convinced that your good health and ability to keep cancer at bay has everything to do with your lifestyle changes, Kathleen! That truly makes a difference - and has almost immediate benefits.

Thank you for participating in this month's challenge. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts!

Hi Kathleen- I too am very happy about your good health and also that you've taken charge of your health and how to treat it. I know of many people who have been helped through acupuncture.

Good morning Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist I'm glad your health is good.  Health is the most important thing in the world - without it we have nothing.  

It's not a good thing when mistakes are made on medical billing or medical notes.  We have to be our own best advocate, which it certainly sounds you are.

Wishing you continued good health!

I love that you use healers and no pharmaceuticals. Our bodies are miraculous.

As for hospital and/or doctor bills, grrrr.... We've been trying to get a bill paid by insurance for months - and they keep saying they will then we get another bill from the doctor's office. ARGGGH

Good morning, Kathleen... we are so fortunate to live in a country where we can avail ourselves of such wonderful medical care. I'm a huge believe in accupuncture and have used it often for things traditional doctors couldn't help me with. I am thankful that all your efforts to beat cancer and stay cancer-free have worked.

Good health is a big one. It's ironic that we take it for granted and then when we have concerns, it takes over our world. Grateful you have found the right recipe to keep "you" healthy.

Thankfully those who make mistakes can correct them when questioned Kathleen. Mistakes are time sucks and getting an incorrect code changed can be tedious, especially when it will cost dearly!

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist - It disgusts me to hear that there are still erroneous errors being made in the medical field. I learned these lessons many years ago when I was paying my spouse's medical bills. The final bill (with no surgery, CPR or out of the ordinary treatments) cost 3 times what I was paying. And when I checked on what those codes meant, I found out they were charging my man for a pregnancy test and a burn unit mattress. The costs were hidden by codes and I fought back. For this to continue on in 2021 and beyond is inexcusable.

On a personal note, you are doing an amazing job taking care of your health and scrutinizing invoices. I hope many people read what you have written and will learn from you. May you continue to champion good health and healing and be an inspiration to others so that they can do it for themselves too.

Sounds like you are on a good path... we have been on a Plant Based diet for many years... We all need to wake up and face the fact that there is no money in health...

I have a son who is an ER Doctor and I can't tell you how often I have begged him to quit, especially since the Virus... Many of his friends have left the  medical field and truly I don't blame them... most have been doctors for 25 or more years and now are saying they can make more money selling computers and have a lot less stress in their lives... Few know what the doctors of today must conform with... Did you know that if someone dies from a heart attack they must say it was the virus if they work at a hospital because the hospital gets more money... I'm sure you know we have a cure for cancer and I am sure you also know what that cure if made public  would cost the medical as well as the pharmaceutical companies... Billion and Billions...
