Hello world!

Hello all,

Here’s a letter I sent to the President and all our CA reps and Sen. Baucus regarding Healthcare reform.  I think both insurance based and government based healthcare systems are out of date and ineffective and that at this point in our history both need to be co-opted into a much more effective system of, by and for the people.  The argument for single payer will only polarize people.  We need to give ourselves what we need: Healthcare that is really about the health needs that each of us have in our own home towns.  If we do that , then the governments and businesses will have to get on board with us as we vote with our dollars and our energy.  I’d love to hear what you think.

David Kitts L.Ac.

Dear Representative Woolsey,

Thank you for your dedicated service to our region. Here is a letter I just drafted to Sen. Max Baucus regarding his “Call to Healthcare Reform”. Please let me know if you would support our efforts in our beloved corner of California. You can see the beginnings of our plan at marinholisticcarecenters.blogspot.com

Thanks again!

Dear Senator,

I was excited by the news in the last two days that you are considering “member-owned co-operatives” as an option that may be palatable to both sides of the aisle. Very little detail was offered as to what this actually is, so I offer you my idea which, like yours, is very much a work in progress:

Practitioners own a for-profit branch of locally based health-membership organizations. The administration of these local organizations is facilitated by a non-profit local corporation that is supported by the local, state and federal governments. This locally based system is the only way that we can really generate the vitality and flexibility that each locality needs.

We are a collective of Holistic Health practitioners starting a prototype of this system right now in our own little town of Fairfax California. At this embryonic stage, we are simply offering some of our time and services at a steeply discounted rate starting at $20. We are working in one room to save rent and foster cooperation amongst practitioners.

The big vision is a participatory, membership-driven healthcare system in which people can guarantee lifetime coverage by using affordable health-enhancing services on a regular basis. This way they are rewarded for keeping themselves healthy rather than avoiding healthcare because of it’s expense. Practitioners are also healthier in this model because they have income they can count on as owners of the system, allowing them to afford rest, regeneration and continuing education.

I truly believe that a Holistic understanding that the health of all people and indeed the entire biosphere are crucial to caring for the health of each individual.

Will you support me and people like me all over the country who are looking to create healthy vibrant society of the future?

Sincerely,

David Kitts, Licensed Acupuncturist

What is health?  Having joy and vitality in your life on a consistent basis, regardless of circumstances.
