The Problem with the Business of Health Care is that it’s a Business

The Problem with the Business of Health Care is that it’s a Business. A That Depends on Exploiting Doctors and Nurse

An opinion by Aachan, Dr. Anthony B. James

St. John Point of Care Vitalology Wellness screening
Dr. J ready for clinic!

It can only function at all due to the exploitation of both patients and caregivers.

Most professional care givers, got into the “Business” to help people. Also to make a living. However, what they did not foresee was how an industrial medical system was going to pillage their good intentions and their own health and sanity in consideration of making a buck.  Most health care workers and providers do the right thing for their patients, even at a high personal cost.

We were told that the reasons for the “efficiencies” being put into place, the policies, the mountains of paperwork and documentation, the spiraling , escalating cost were being pushed and implemented to benefit the patient! And yet the actual documented outcomes show a deterioration of functional outcomes that neither benefit the patient nor the individual health care providers… the only tangible, documented benefit seems overall to be an increase of wealth transfer into the pockets of the stake holders of the medical industry and their consultants, sometimes called lobbyist, sometime called congressmen and women.

Recently, the World Health Organization recognized the serious effects of burnout from chronic workplace stress. Burnout levels among doctors are at all time new highs, far worse than among the general population, and increasing relentlessly. Burnout among nurses is similarly rising and is highest among those on the front line of patient care. Doctors and nurses commit suicide at higher rates than in almost any other profession. Higher levels of burnout are also associated with more medical errors and compromised patient safety.

A)  “Profits over Patients: How the rules of our Economy Encourage the Pharmaceuticals Industry’s Extractive Behavior”

B) Ethical Issues in For Profit Health Care: Authors and researchers Dan W. Brock and Allen Buchanan state ” there are six primary issues that profit based health care causes… The authors state “The most serious ethical criticisms of for-profit health care can be grouped under six headings. For-profit health care institutions are said to (1) exacerbate the problem of access to health care, (2) constitute unfair competition against nonprofit institutions, (3) treat health care as a commodity rather than a right, (4) include incentives and organizational controls that adversely affect the physician-patient relationship, creating conflicts of interest that can diminish the quality of care and erode the patient’s trust in his physician and the public’s trust in the medical profession, (5) undermine medical education, and (6) constitute a “medical-industrial complex” that threatens to use its great economic power to exert undue influence on public policy concerning health care.”

I think they have nailed it. Because of the scope of their research they didn’t really go into nor directly consider the personal cost and the stress issues that working in this type of system causes to the workers and their families who are the health care providers themselves!

Take a minute and actually go to the links I’ve provided here and read for your yourself. I don’ think I have the literary capacity to adequately convey the terror and negative impact these statistics represent in real human terms! The bankruptcies, the suicides, the devastation’s to families, to children to whole communities.

Health care systems spend hundreds of millions of dollars on slick advertisements that stress how “caring”, how nurturing, how understanding their industry is when it is nothing of the same. These qualities are those of the individual providers not of the corporate, profit based organizations that exploit them in pursuit of the bottom line. These qualities are “selling the sizzle” and amount to bait and switch tactics… as how else can an essentially corrupt system lure both workers and patients to participate in systems which may be contraindicated for both their long term survival?

The care and considerations of both health care workers themselves and the patients they care for are being manipulated and exploited by the primary care system, the insurance industry … the so called “medical , industrial complex”.

Some would suggest as solutions to re-organize the industry. I think that’s not wrong … it’s just hundreds of millions of people with perish and suffer, patients and care providers long before that happens in the incremental fashion this large of a change will take.

In the short term I suggest that everyone, health providers and patients alike move to learn about and rely on alternative and complimentary care modalities and systems. Indigenous, traditional and alternative systems which are low risk, low cost do exist! These types of systems can handle up to 90% of the health, wellness and medical issues that drive patients into Profit-centric Medical systems and same for Health care providers!

These systems such as Indigenous Native American Medicine, Indigenous Classical Indian and Thai Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Muslim Yunani and or Filipino Hilot Medicine, as well as the many modern and elegant derivatives of the practices all together represent solutions and alternatives to Profit based Medical Care.

These systems are as good for the Health Care providers as they are for the Patients who benefit from the care. They are moral, ethically justifiable and sustainable. We know their sustainable as most of them have already stood the test of time being in common use by billions of people worldwide for thousands of years!

Like one of my former professors of Ayurveda Dr. Naryam Murti of Kerla India used to say… “If the primary reason for doing the medicine is to make money, then by definition it’s not medicine”. Hard words from a successful doctor who’s clinic in South Kerla saved 100’s of thousands of patients from serious illnesses for over 50 years. However, Naryam Gi also would say we can make a good living. We can have a happy life… we just don’t need to exploit others to do so in the name of medicine!

We have to get the business of health care out of health care. This is the ONLY way the health care system will no longer be exploitive of Doctors, health care workers and patients all together!

Thai Massage Training

Foundations, Advanced & Therapeutic Thai Massage Training

Detailed and comprehensive Traditional Thai Massage training apprenticeships in Foundations, Advanced, and Therapeutic Thai Massage bring the most authentic and traditional style of training to the student. Thai Massage trainings are intensive and teach students think for themselves and practice Traditional Thai Ayurveda based treatment protocols at the therapeutic level rather than learning fluffy, stretching focused, repetitive entry level technique.
 
Unlike massage and or massage therapy programs, students are learning a comprehensive and traditional system of indigenous traditional medicine from day one and have the opportunity to study one-to-one with the instructor. Our Florida State DOE Authorized College of Natural Medicine, Ayurveda and the Thai Yoga Center are located in beautiful Brooksville, Florida. Learning as in a traditional Thai-style apprenticeship through watching, practicing, and immersion style format is the most focused and intensive way of learning. Our SomaVeda® Thai Yoga programs are famous world wide and our program is the oldest original Traditional Thai Medical Massage program in the US, full time since 1984!
 

Other programs claim to be traditional and to stress a traditional Thai style approach. However, the student should ask “upon what traditional apprenticeship and authentic traditional school method is their approach based on?” Our chief instructor Aachan, Dr. Anthony B. James is recognized as a master teacher and professor of Thai Traditional Medicine by The UTTS, Ministry of Thai Traditional Medicine and is a Certified Aachan and professor in the Anantasuk School of Thai Traditional Medicine and the Wat Po Association of Thai Traditional Medical Schools. See verifiable references here!

 

If any instructor claiming to operate a “traditional ” apprenticeship type of program approaches you and can not provide similar or equal documentation… Run Away!

 

We offer over 4000 hrs. of college level education & courses, certifications and degrees in our apprentice program. No other Traditional Thai Massage program offers so much. New apprentice students begin with the 164 hr. 17 day intensive training… Typical course days run from 8:30 am in the morning to 10:00pm in the evenings. When we say intensive training. we mean it!

Click here for a complete description of the pre-requisite course for new apprentices and students!
 
More than intensive, personal, hands on professional training and education. As we are a NAIC (Native American Indigenous Church) operated seminary we are not doing this for the money! NAIC Inc. is a Florida State Chartered, IRS Compliant 508 (c)1(A) FBO- Faith based, religious/ Church and Federally registered Tribal Organization. This means not only are donations to NAIC Tax Deductable but that NAIC offers the MOST Generous Tuition Grant and scholarship program in the industry. See for yourself how we can generously offer five different Tier Level Grants. SCHOLARSHIP-GRANTS FOR NEW STUDENTS.

Unlike other so called traditional schools, we represent living traditions of Ayurveda and Thai Traditional Medicine with verifiable permission and authorization. Our Aachan is recognized as an Aachan or Professor of Thai medicine and has the verifiable recognition’s to prove it! Aachan, Dr. Anthony B. James Bio.

No one better here in the US or in Thailand to teach you this traditional healing work than a Thai recognized master teacher with 36 years of full time teaching experience teaching Thai Medicine and traditional healing arts.

​There is more than technique involved in running a healing practice and making a living as a Traditional Thai Massage practitioner! Since our school is a full and comprehensive natural medicine and college of Ayurveda we can teach you everything you need to start, maintain and prosper in your Traditional Thai Massage based healing practice.

 
Please note, some of the adjunct course work apprentices receive training in…

More than 27 distinctive adjunct and clinical practices are offered to every apprentice. Of course included at NO Additional Fee!

The full apprentice style program will take an average student two to four years to complete (with a SCNM College Doctor of Ayurveda PhD. degree) however, the initial commitment is only 17 days!  The student is expected to practice and do the required homework between modules to assimilate and absorb all the instruction. Aachan, Dr. Anthony James and senior staff teachers make sure you stay on track.

 

Legal Guidelines!

What’s the point of apprentice in a genuine traditional Thai Massage program if your not legal to practice everything you have learned! We can assure you that when you complete our program and following our legal guidelines as taught in class your perfectly legal to practice in all 50 states and 100 countries outside the US! Most if not all programs of study calling themselves “Thai” regardless of how good their technique is can not give you a legal basis to actually practice! We are a Federally Registered Native American Indigenous Tribal Organization and our right to practice our religious therapeutics is established and protected under two different federal codes. Some school try to mis-direct students into enrolling in Massage Therapy programs and applying for a massage license to practice… Falsely implying that your legal to practice Traditional Thai Massage with a “Massage License”… This is patently false and misleading and unethical as well. These schools are not going to be able to offer you any assistance should a massage board or state medical board come after you! We can provide a legal basis for practice to all of our apprentices upon request.

Don’t take our word for it!

LearnThaiYoga Announces OnLine Learning Platform!

LearnThaiYoga On-Line
Traditional Thai Yoga Therapy also known as Thai Traditional Massage is the fastest growing and most sought after healing modality in the world today. Of course, the best way to learn is in a live class with a Master Teacher or Thai “Aachan” such as at the Thai Yoga Center in Brooksville, Florida studying with Aachan Dr. Anthony B. James and or his trained and certified SomaVeda® Thai Yoga staff Khruu or Teachers.

You Asked for it!

However, if you can’t make it to a live SomaVeda® Thai Yoga class either because of scheduling or cost the next best thing is to learn from the Master Teacher at Home!
Now you can Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga at Home!
Don’t waste your time on lessons from untrained and un-certified and or non-authentic teachers?

Hi everyone and good day!
I am continuing my current project of bringing you new and useful information and content to empower you to Jump Start Your Healing Practice.  It’s not enough to just have a goody bag of useful “tricks” and “bits” of therapies to put together a successful healing practice. Degrees and Certifications are fine but in and of themselves do not lead one to a happy, successful and fulfilling life, a intrinsically successful, happy life.
Recent Course Releases…
Increase Your Focus For Better Life and Practice
Sustainable Eating Equals Sustainable Health
Meditation for Focus and Success
The Freedom of Living in the Now
How To Get Back on The Health Track
New Video Lessons on SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Vinyasa (Flows for various breakouts)!
It is good that our traditions have deep and ancient roots with elders and teachers who have lived the life of healers, traditional doctors and therapist for centuries, literally. They are our role models. We do not have to reinvent the wheel of success in what we do by ourselves. Only our current life situations and perhaps cultural considerations are unique. But what we are doing in life is not new or unique. We can learn from our elders and these lessons and qualities I am recommending you cultivate don’t originate with me personally but they are passed down to us by previous generations of healers who chose to practice true medicine as a way of life for their whole life!
Please share these courses with your professional friends!

TAELR- Tool Assisted Energy Line Release

According to PHYSIOPEDIA “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation or Simply IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. The technique itself is said to be a modern evolution from Traditional Chinese Medicine called Gua Sha[1].However Gua Sha was not used to treat Musculoskeletal conditions but was traditionally applied along meridiens to move the bad chi out through the skin. IASTM is a is a procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency while remaining non-invasive,with its own indications and limitations.”

However Physiopedia although correct is incorrect to ascribe the use of tools in therapy exclusively to traditional Chinese Medicine! Using tools in medical therapy is first recorded in the classics of Indian and Thai Ayurveda … the Sushruta Samhita recorded Ayuvedic Physician using a great variety of instruments to supplement the use of their bare hands over four thousand years ago.

In our indigenous traditional way of thinking we make no defined distinction separating the body into physical and or energetic quanta. We see no clear distinction at all. Fascial Planes= Energy Lines and vise versa. Additionally in the western variations there is little or no emphasis on the traditional Hammer and Probe type of technique which is consider vital in our traditional medicine.

This treatment strategy and protocol is useful for therapist who are seeking to use their hands less as the primary tools or expression of their healing arts… Through the use of the various instruments one may do entire sessions and treatments Hands Free!

Example of a SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. protocol for treating Plantar Fascitis

A derivative of the traditional oriental techniques becoming popular in western medical physiopathy are called “Graston®, Fascial Abrasion Technique® etc.”

In this course we introduce and explain all of the traditional tools used in TAELR™ practice and with live demonstration practice exchanges building application competencies. Students through lecture and in-class learning environment improve understanding of indications, contraindications and clinical applications for common conditions and issues. Additionally, students are introduced to the protocol as a form of Complimentary and Integrative Medicine Practice in the context of a modern Religious Therapeutic modality suitable for ministers of traditional medicine practice.

In the SomaVeda® TAELR™ Certification Course the practitioner receives certification as a Certified SomaVeda® TAELR™  Technician.

We introduce the SomaVeda® TAELR™ protocol in the Ayurveda LifeStyle Consultant (CTP2) module. Further training is offered in the Ayurveda Health Counselor and SomaVeda® Yoga Therapist and Teacher Certification Certification Programs. Advanced training is offered once a year in Brooksville, FL at the Thai Yoga Center during the Annual Advanced and Teacher Conference and twice a year during our ongoing programs in Thailand (December and April annually).
