There’s something that all survivors have in common.
After studying plane crashes, car wrecks, horrific accidents at home and even human health, researchers came to a clear conclusion.
If we want to survive… we must take action.
Take plane crashes, for example. It turns out that when we examine everything from aircraft overshooting a runway to planes falling from the sky… most folks are hurt or killed not because of an explosion or sudden impact. They die because they never bothered to leave their seat.
They see the problem, they feel the heat of the fire… and yet they don’t move.
It kills them.
But in the midst of a life devoted to exploring Know-How, to putting ourselves where we don’t belong and to uncovering the truth that’s buried in the mud… we’ve learned a thing or two.
It’s not just plane crashes and car accidents where folks freeze.
As humans, we do it during our everyday lives.
We mentioned health. Research shows that many patients get bad news and go into a state of shock. They don’t do anything unless they’re told to.
Our lives shouldn’t depend on somebody else scheduling our next appointment for us… or getting our treatment in before their lunch break starts.
The same is true with education… with politics… and even with our relationships.
We see the problem, we gripe about what’s going on… but few folks bother to get out of their burning seat to do anything about it.
That ain’t us.
Doing something is why we get up before sunrise. It’s why we get on our keyboard each morning while most others are sound asleep.
And now, we’re celebrating the fruits of that action.
About 18 months ago, we got word that Washington would finally lift the 82-year-old prohibition of hemp.
We dug into all sides of the story.
We learned some of the amazing benefits of the plant.
We took our message to Washington and made headlines around the world.
Why are we doing this?
The stark truth is that when it comes to our health, most docs simply follow a “here, try this” approach to medicine.
They offer a prescription to whatever drug they think will best mask the problem.
But we say don’t blame the doctor. Most are doing their very best.
Instead, blame the system.
Most docs these days know rich, individualized care is the solution. In other words, they must take the time to help their patients find the root cause of the pain and attack it at its source.
But in an “efficient,” industrialized healthcare system, the margins are too thin and doctors are not allowed to spend a large amount of time with their patients.
In fact, a study from 2013 showed that many providers are spending just eight minutes with the average patient. That’s hardly enough time for a proper greeting, let alone a full-blown diagnosis.
But with costs soaring, that’s all insurance companies will allow before a doc is forced to move on to the next invoice, er, patient.
But at Manward, we’re using our Know-How, tapping our Connections… and if we’ve got it right, we’ll be giving readers Liberty from something that has likely plagued them for decades.
We found a problem, we learned what we needed to do and we took action.
We’re survivors. And proud of it.
