“We all know there’s huge savings in preventative care”
The grassroots Complementary and Alternative Medical Association of Vermont (www.CAMaVT.org) invites you and all interested to join us working together to achieve our mutual goals. Together we can turn our failed health care system right side up by keeping Vermonters healthy through wellness, healing, preventing the birth of disease and the integration of Alternative and Conventional health care service.
H.501 requires insurance to cover evidence-based services that improve health and reduce medical expenses. This includes Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).
“Preventing is better than treating”
Hippocrates of Kos (460 – 377 BC) 1
Vermont House Bill H.501 was submitted by Rep. Jim McCullough. It requires insurance to cover evidenced-based health services, including Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which improve health and reduce medical expenses.
One example of a prevention-oriented and evidence-based health care service is the Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique (TM.org). Scientific research studies verify that the TM technique dissolves stress, prevents the onset of disease 5 and reduces disease in all major categories 6. The addition of this powerful tool would make a primary care physician’s treatments more effective by dissolving stress.
28% reduction in medical expenses. 100% return on health investment in the Transcendental Meditation technique
I will prevent disease whenever I can,
for prevention is preferable to cure.
Modern Hippocratic Oath
It is medically necessary to prevent the onset of disease
Since 10% of the population account for 70% of all health care dollars providing prevention-oriented services to these individuals will have the largest impact on saving our health care dollars. Research on the Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) (TM.org) technique has documented a 28% reduction in medical expenses for persistent high cost people with a 100% return investment.
I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required, avoiding those twin traps of over treatment and therapeutic nihilism.
I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.
I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.
