O ’NA HealthCare: A new healthcare insurance option?

I was recently invited to speak at David Wolfe’s Longevity NOW conference in Anaheim, California, where I gave a talk entitled “Germs, Muscle, and Pac-Man: New Strategies for Turning the Clock Back 10 or 20 Years” detailing some new strategies for maintaining youthfulness and vigor. (It was a longevity conference, after all. I shall be posting a similar talk on our Undoctored Inner Circle website in the next few days.) Of the 40-some vendor booths that were part of the conference, there was one that caught my eye: O’NA HealthCare. They claim to provide coverage for functional medicine care, integrative health practitioners, chiropractors, Eastern medicine, biological dental care, etc., while also providing conventional healthcare insurance coverage at a fraction of the cost of other healthcare insurers. Because I have been actively exploring ways for us to opt-out of the disaster that is modern healthcare and healthcare insurance, this got my attention. Beyond covering alternative care, it got even more interesting. The representative at the booth told me that the company got its start on native American Indian territory as a healthcare cooperative/Native American Tribal Community, founded by the Elders of the United Cherokee Nation – Aniyvwiya. O’NA HealthCare is therefore not subject to the regulations of conventional healthcare insurance, regulations that typically add substantially to costs. Now, that’s interesting. Comparing thei...

While the primary risk factor for oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC) and its precursor lesion Barrett ’s oesophagus (BO) is gastro-oesophageal reflux, the infection withHelicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is the dominant risk factor for gastric cancer. Reduction of reflux by dietary measures and proton pump inhibitors has some merits in OAC prevention, and the chemopreventive effect of Aspirin and statins is being widely investigated; however, improved outcome in OAC occurs primarily as the result of secondary prevention. Early detection of neoplastic lesions in Barrett ’s metaplasia can be achieved by surveillance e...

Authors: Khoury T, Mari A, Amara H, Jabaren M, Watad A, Nseir W, Sbeit W, Mahamid M Abstract Background and Aims: We aimed to assess whether chronic statins used (> 6 months) were protective of the development of esophagitis in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. In the presence of esophagitis, complications such as strictures, Barrett's esophagus, and adenocarcinoma were the most common. Statins, lipid lowering drugs with a pleiotropic effect, are recently implicated in various pathologies. Nevertheless, the possible impact of statins in esophagitis development has never been assessed. Methods: W...

Very often I encounter women who are far more worried about breast cancer than they are about heart disease. But women have a greater risk of dying from heart disease than from all cancers combined. This is true for women of all races and ethnicities. Yet only about 50% of women realize that they are at greater risk from heart disease than from anything else. Currently in the US, three million women are living with breast cancer, which causes one in 31 deaths. Almost 50 million women have cardiovascular disease, which encompasses heart disease and strokes and causes one in three deaths. Here’s what’s reall...

Take a look at the list of medications people have been able to stop by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle. These represent medications prescribed by doctors to, in effect, “treat” the consequences of consuming wheat and grains. They prescribe drugs to treat inflammation, swelling, skin rashes, gastrointestinal irritation, high blood sugars, airway allergy, joint pain, high blood pressure, leg edema and other abnormal effects caused by wheat and grains. The list includes anti-inflammatory and pain medication, acid reflux drugs, injectable and oral drugs for diabetes, numerous anti-hypertensive agents, asthma i...

Health, weight, and appearance are transformed by living the Wheat Belly lifestyle. You can see it on the face with reduced puffiness and edema and smoother skin. You can see it on the waistline as inflammatory visceral fat recedes. You can perceive it as increased energy, reduced depression and anxiety, reduction or elimination of irritable bowel syndrome and acid reflux symptoms, reduced joint pain, reversal of leg/ankle edema, and in so many other ways. But how about blood measures of health? You can witness the transformations there, too. And the transformations you see in blood markers of health can be just as dramati...
