“…… Should I use Doctors and Drugs to Heal Me or Spiritual Methods?

"Dear Kryon, I have heard that you should stay natural and not use the science on the planet for healing. It does not honor God to go to a doctor. After all, don't you say that we can heal with our minds? So why should we ever go to a doctor if we can do it ourselves? Not only that, my doctor isn't enlightened, so he has no idea about my innate or my spiritual body needs. What should I do?"

First, Human Being, why do you wish to put so many things in boxes? You continue to want a yes and no answer for complex situations due to your 3D, linear outlook on almost everything. Learn to think out of the 3D box! Look at the heading of this section [above]. It asks which one should you do. It already assumes you can't do both because they seem dichotomous.

Let's use some spiritual logic: Here is a hypothetical answer, "Don't go to a doctor, for you can heal everything with your mind." So now I will ask: How many of you can do that in this room right now? How many readers can do that with efficiency right now? All of you are old souls, but are you really ready to do that? Do you know how? Do you have really good results with it? Can you rid disease and chemical imbalance with your mind right now?

I'm going to give you a truth, whether you choose to see it or not. You're not ready for that! You are not yet prepared to take on the task of full healing using your spiritual tools. Lemurians could do that, because Pleiadians taught them how! It's one of the promises of God, that there'll come a day when your DNA works that efficiently and you will be able to walk away from drug chemistry and the medical industry forever, for you'll have the creator's energy working at 100 percent, something you saw within the great masters who walked the earth.

This will be possible within the ascended earth that you are looking forward to, dear one. Have you seen the news lately? Look out the window. Is that where you are now? We are telling you that the energy is going in that direction, but you are not there yet.

Let those who feel that they can heal themselves begin the process of learning how. Many will be appreciative of the fact that you have some of the gifts for this now. Let the process begin, but don't think for a moment that you have arrived at a place where every health issue can be healed with your own power. You are students of a grand process that eventually will be yours if you wish to begin the quantum process of talking to your cells. Some will be good at this, and some will just be planting the seeds of it.

Now, I would like to tell you how Spirit works and the potentials of what's going to happen in the next few years. We're going to give the doctors of the planet new inventions and new science. These will be major discoveries about the Human body and of the quantum attributes therein.

Look at what has already happened, for some of this science has already been given to you and you are actually using it. Imagine a science that would allow the heart to be transplanted because the one you have is failing. Of course! It's an operation done many times a month on this planet. That information came from the creator, did you realize that? It didn't drop off the shelf of some dark energy library to be used in evil ways.

So, if you need a new heart, Lightworker, should you go to the doctor or create one with your mind? Until you feel comfortable that you can replace your heart with a new one by yourself, then you might consider using the God-given information that is in the hands of the surgeon. For it will save your life, and create a situation where you stay and continue to send your light to the earth! Do you see what we're saying?

You can also alter that which is medicine [drugs] and begin a process that is spectacular in its design, but not very 3D. I challenge you to begin to use what I would call the homeopathic principle with major drugs. If some of you are taking major drugs in order to alter your chemistry so that you can live better and longer, you might feel you have no choice. "Well, this is keeping me alive," you might say. "I don't yet have the ability to do this with my consciousness, so I take the drugs."

In this new energy, there is something else that you can try if you are in this category. Do the following with safety, intelligence, common sense and logic. Here is the challenge: The principle of homeopathy is that an almost invisible tincture of a substance is ingested and is seen by your innate. Innate "sees" what you are trying to do and then adjusts the body's chemistry in response. Therefore, you might say that you are sending the body a "signal for balance." The actual tincture is not large enough to affect anything chemically - yet it works!

The body [innate] sees what you're trying to do and then cooperates. In a sense, you might say the body is healing itself because you were able to give it instructions through the homeopathic substance of what to do. So, why not do it with a major drug? Start reducing the dosage and start talking to your cells, and see what happens. If you're not successful, then stop the reduction. However, to your own amazement, you may often be successful over time.

You might be able to take the dosage that you're used to and cut it to at least a quarter of what it was. It is the homeopathy principle and it allows you to keep the purpose of the drug, but reduce it to a fraction of a common 3D dosage. You're still taking it internally, but now it's also signaling in addition to working chemically. The signal is sent, the body cooperates, and you reduce the chance of side effects.

You can't put things in boxes of yes or no when it comes to the grand system of Spirit. You can instead use spiritual logic and see the things that God has given you on the planet within the inventions and processes. Have an operation, save your life, and stand and say, "Thank you, God, for this and for my being born where these things are possible." It's a complicated subject, is it not? Each of you is so different! You'll know what to do, dear one. Never stress over that decision, because your innate will tell you what is appropriate for you if you're willing to listen. ….”

Health industry; the branded generic medicine debate

Yoga Prakasa, Analyst , The Jakarta Post

In its efforts to provide the people with easy access to medicines, the government has attempted to make common medicines affordable to people at large by controlling their prices.

The government, through the Health Ministry, issued a series of regulations starting in November 2004 when it reduced the prices of 29 branded generic drugs. The ministry then issued three regulations in 2006, with the latest one in April 2007. As such, prices of more than 400 items have been reduced by 70 percent.

However, the prices of raw materials for medicines have gone up -- more than double for certain items. And since the domestic pharmaceutical industry lacks the capability to develop raw materials, more than 90 percent of them have to be imported, mainly from China and India.

Thus, with the strengthening yuan and rupee relative to the U.S. dollar, coupled with a declining supply of raw materials due to the closing down of several environmentally substandard Chinese and Indian pharmaceutical companies, domestic prices of medicines are vulnerable to the vagaries of rising raw material prices.

As a result, domestic pharmaceutical firms have experienced shrinking margins from their branded generic products. State-owned pharmaceutical firms were hit the most since generic drugs have become the backbone of their business, even accounting for as much as 70 percent of their revenues.

In response to the regulations, pharmaceutical companies have reduced or even stopped the production of such money-losing products, effectively making them scarcer or even unavailable on the market.

Consequently, the regulations actually make it difficult for people to attain access to affordable medicines, the very thing the regulations were intended to resolve.

So what has happened? Well, the situation can best be explained by simple market economics: regardless of drug cartel involvement or not, the dead weight loss experienced from tampering with the market equilibrium price brings everyone involved to a loss.

Up to now, frictions between the Health Ministry and the pharmaceutical industry still exist.

The latest move by the ministry to ensure industry compliance is by proposing its authority to import medicines to alleviate shortages of certain drugs included on the National Essential Medicines List.

If the ministry goes ahead with such plans, the negative impact may be felt across the pharmaceutical industry.

This does not have to be the case. Such a well-intended policy of affordable medicines could potentially bring a win-win solution to all parties if implemented in an appropriate manner.

Up to now, the government still taxes raw material imports with import tariffs of as much as 6.5 to 12.5 percent, while telling the industry to significantly cut prices. This doesn't seem reasonable.

Thus, to entice the industry to be more cooperative, the import tariffs should be done away with. This would be the easiest thing to do in the near term. Subsequently, the government can work with the pharmaceutical industry to formulate a more efficient and longer-term partnership of mutual benefits.

The ministry uses quoted prices published by the non-profit organization Management Sciences for Health and the WHO as the basis for its price cap. The Health Ministry claims to set prices at a level to allow manufacturers and distributors to make acceptable profit margins.

However, the formula is not disclosed. The fact is that the landed cost of imported raw materials is much higher compared to other nations. Thus the total cost of production of the branded generic drugs may be higher than the price cap set by the ministry.

The government, through the ministry, can help reduce cost pressures by cutting out unnecessary middlemen as the next step through direct procurement of the raw materials. The Health Ministry may even collaborate with its regional peers in ASEAN or even the WHO to leverage its bargaining power.

One idea that has been proposed is for the government to be the single buyer of the branded generic drugs' raw materials and to be the single dispenser of the drugs itself through government hospitals, retail pharmacies including people's pharmacies (apotek rakyat), and other health facilities such as Puskesmas.

The Health Ministry could then outsource the production and distribution of the drugs to pharmaceutical state-owned enterprises and private companies, paying them for the cost of service and allowing an acceptably high margin to make it a viable business.

For the government to be the single buyer, the Health Ministry will need sustainable financing to procure the necessary materials and fund the entire initiative. While funds from the state budget would be needed initially, the ministry could make better use of a publicly funded insurance system such as Askes for long-term sustainable funding.

Through Askes, the government can provide health coverage to low-income people while, at the same time, forcing prescriptions of branded generic medicines and allocating those drugs to its targeted people.

In addition, the funding can be in the form of cross tax subsidies, patient co-payments or user fees, professionally managed health funds or any combination of these.

All in all, it can be concluded that the affordable medicines initiative should be part of a comprehensive national health policy program. And with genuine willingness on the part of all parties involved, it can be realized, ultimately, for the good of the people.
