“Where left and right come front and center to face the music and dance together, to turn the funk into function and leave the junk at the junction”
Despite what we hear and see on the news, we have a deeply UNITED body politic in America. Whether people identify as progressive, conservative, independent or “other”, the vast majority of Americans believe our current pay-to-play political system doesn’t represent them. Particularly in the election of 2016, where the candidate named “Neither of the Above” would have won in a landslide, citizens are feeling disheartened, discouraged and disenfranchised.
The elephant — and donkey — in the living room is the growing awareness that neither of the two major parties has the people’s interest at heart, nor the good of the commonwealth for that matter. The system is incapable of fixing itself, and so what is required is an “intervention” by the entity that our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and the Preamble to the Constitution declare is the “sovereign” of our republic: we, the people.

An Interview with Erik Goldman, Founder of Holistic Primary Care – News For Health & Healing
“We have a health care system that is neither healthy nor caring.” — Swami Beyondananda
The current COVID-19 crisis has made our health care system front-burner news. On one hand, there are stories of dedicated and skilled professionals who have put their own wellbeing on the line as the front line in fighting the COVID infection. On the other hand, we have physicians who, alarmed at the ineffectiveness of the protocol, have spoken out and have been shut down. Not only that, but helpful non-drug remedies have been de-platformed by social media at the behest of the World Health Organization, and any information not consistent with the official CDC COVID-19 story has been blatantly censored.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg. As a country, we pay more per capita for medical care than any other nation in the world, and all that money buys us health care that ranks 27th in the world, down from sixth 30 years ago. What’s wrong with this picture? Perhaps it’s a medical system that is about money, money über alles, and where primary care physicians are little more than plantation slaves, paralyzed by university debt. Instead of noble independent practitioners, they have largely become employees of managed care conglomerates – where executives make millions in salary.
Our guest this week, Erik Goldman, has been serving health care professionals who want to practice more holistically for 20 years. He is the founding editor of Holistic Primary Care-News for Health & Healing, a medical publication serving ~60,000 professionals with news and education about non-pharma alternatives for preventing & treating common chronic conditions. He is also co-producer of “Heal Thy Practice: Transforming Patient Care,” a series of conferences that explored practice models to support holistic medicine; and The Practitioner Channel Forum, an annual executive retreat focused on the opportunities and challenges in the practitioner segment of the natural products industry.
