Brief History of Health Care
In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, naturopathic-based herbal and homeopathic medicine was the norm - but the course of health care was soon to change. The oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller wanted to dominate control over petroleum, petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals – which are all derived from coal tars or crude oil. He arranged for his company, Standard Oil of New Jersey, to obtain a controlling interest in a huge German drug cartel called I. G. Farben, thus he established a strong foothold in the pharmaceutical business. It is both interesting and sad to know that the Farben company is the company that provided much of the gases used by Hitler.
The next step in his plan was to eliminate the form of health care that he was not in control of and/or he could not profit from. Herbal tinctures and homeopathic remedies could not be patented. So what he did was finance the investigation into what was being taught in medical schools. The report on this investigation was labeled “The Flexner Report of 1910”.
This report was presented to Congress and the government chose to implement the guidelines the report suggested. From that point on medical schools that offered training in the various disciplines including electromagnetic field therapy, phototherapy (light), electric medicine, naturopathy, and homeopathy were told either to drop these courses from their curriculum or lose their accreditation and underwriting support. The number of medical schools at that time soon declined from 151 to 31.
This was the beginning of health care going from an ‘Art’ to that of a ‘Business’ and from going from a ‘Health Care System’ to a ‘Disease Management System’.
The care provided at Bio – Resonate Health Care is based on the insightful understanding of the forefathers of medicine and on present day science.
Many people feel Hippocrates to be the ‘father’ of medicine, here are some of his quotes:
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
“Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love of Humanity.”
“As to diseases, make a habit of two things — to help, or at least, to do no harm.”
“If you are in a bad mood go for a walk. If you are still in a bad mood go for another walk.”
“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.”
“A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.”
