I wish health insurance would help cover the cost of healing your body with healthy eating.
Insurance will cover the cost of prescriptions and pills and visits to doctors who will hastily scribble in illegible handwriting prescriptions for more bottles of pills, and order expensive tests that do not help you get any better, but the closest I’ve come to healing from chronic illness and pain is from keeping an incredibly strict diet. I put nothing in my body anymore than is not completely natural and unprocessed. But the cost of cooking with only organic and pure ingredients and equipment for making all food from scratch is about putting me in debt. Someday I hope health insurance companies might recognize that food can heal, sometimes better than a bottle of pills, but not every one can afford or has access to wholly natural foods. It’s heartbreaking how many families are filling their bodies with processed foods that may very well be slowly poisoning them, exacerbating and/or triggering new health problems and pain.
