In the age of Obamacare and the exploding costs of medical cures, both the medical industry and the government oversight committee in charge of holding costs to a minimums, may just as likely be looking into the practices of “human probiotic infusion, fecal bacteriotherapy, stool transplant, or Fecal transplants” as one treatment with a high degree of success? Fecal matter occupies a gray area being neither drug nor device or tissue, so why would the government or individual alike latch onto this treatment? Cost of treatment vs. success of treatment.
Even when the professionals, gastroenterologists and alike are asked about human probiotic infusion as a treatment to try instead of surgery: Their noses get all screwed up like a seven-year-olds may get when smelling a rank fart in a confined area. Their thoughts may or may not be expressed out loud to you, but they are still thinking, “But it’s putting someone else’s pooo inside of you!”
Once people get past the gross-out factor, medical professionals and the industry alike may relax the scrutiny of the procedure and the scarcity of it may slowly disappear as it becomes mainstream in treatment of Crohn’s, C. diff, or ulcerative colitis? On the other hand as a low-cost procedure and a high probability of success claimed by those in the business of offering such treatments, the government may embrace it, or even counterfeit the research in making it more favorable solely as a cost savings to their social liabilities of signal payer healthcare system (aka. Obamacare.)
In a hospital setting, the transplant is often performed with colonoscopy equipment, to infuse the sample as far back in the colon as possible. But as you can see this requires what is considered a surgery by insurance companies and therefore a considerable cost to the procedure. Cha Ching! Is the sound heard in the governmental regulators mind, whose job it is to control the escalating expense. In other words, its big bucks, spending it could be avoided all together.
Under an era of cost savings it may become a do-it-yourself cure promoted by your loving government healthcare provider. The personal more accessible option is to simply use an enema bottle. (The smaller size, I keep hearing: goes a long way.) Because of e-coli concerns I would venture to guess, the FDA’s recent decision to regulate fecal transplants as an investigational new drug, has brought a treatment which was on a trajectory towards mainstream acceptance—temporarily—hard to get in the US.
There has been talk about developing a pill form, for the treatment of such cases. But as usual if people know what they’re about to swallow just amounts to purified crap, the wrinkled screwed up facial expressions may be permanent to such an extent that even Botox can’t cure.
The most problematic thing about Obamacare for me is. Not being able to talk things over with a doctor who has his wagon attached to your decision based on his sound advice–that best suits you and your health concerns.
Instead Obamacare turns over the responsibilities to other agencies, and individuals, the gears of bureaucracy in making all sorts of your decisions for your health. Who needs a president who promises “changing the country fundamentally”, and keeping him for life, when the bureaucracy built out of social engineering is forever?
The treatments presented in this post are factual indeed, no less factual as the lies and distortions in Mr. Obama’s presentations and defense of his beloved “Obamacare”. His stubborn stance over the government shutdown, not even wanting to negotiate with the GOP, all the while giving exemptions, wavers, or subsidies, to avoid the pain of having to except for themselves the painful effects of the Obamacare law while demanding the people to comply to it, is my objection!
Obamacare is an excrement sandwich being forced down your throats against your will, as the cure-all to all of your future health needs. But when the tape worm eats up our free-market economy and the government can no longer barrow new money from the bank of China, are your decision for your healthcare also going to be limited? Will you beg your government to be able to go to the hospital for treatments? Or, out of cost savings, or the reduced value to the society because of your declining age, will you be left with seeking some Do-it-yourself therapy?
Just one of the many thoughts you all should be thinking when the USA happens to be following in the footsteps of Great Britain’s health industry, where it is rationed. The fact that social medicine doesn’t work the world over has got my hyperhidrosis working overtime.
If every human life is a masterpiece, a novel, a work of art in the making and shaping of our lives of our own design, than you define your own legacy every day; it should also be by your own decision on how you treat it at its end. In the pursuit of happiness somehow I have failed to see the part where we must ask government for its permission, while crossing our fingers behind our backs. I would rather fight an insurance company–I can at least sue them.
With the government bureaucracy….I hear daemons laughing–then ordering. “Take two pills…”
