Warning! Doctors, Insurers Hold Patients Hostage! Says Top Acupuncture Physician
Date:2/20/2008

While drug companies act like an occupying force, doctors and insurers run a dysfunctional cartel, often intentionally denying effective treatment to

patients!

SOUTH FALLSBURG, N.Y., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Most states require years of training and National Board Certification for Licensed Acupuncturists. These professionals routinely treat difficult and chronic disease, according to Tom Chi, a NYS Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Acupuncture (RI), and author of the soon to be released book, Beat Your Doctor With a Baseball Bat!

Chi says thousands of studies show that acupuncture really works: "One wonders why a vital system of proved medicine is largely excluded from our national healthcare insurance system."

For instance, Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield of New York: In 1996, Chi contacted then medical director Dan McCrohn who quickly moved to cover acupuncture. He knew that WHO, NIH and others endorsed acupuncture for a wide range of disease.

Chi says that in 2002 when Empire went "for-profit" and gave the state $1 billion dollars for the privilege, Dr. Steve Willensky, another Empire medical director, told Chi they would largely stop paying for acupuncture and recalls Willensky saying, "Send me peer-reviewed studies that show acupuncture works and we'll keep paying for it."

Chi provided fifty peer-reviewed studies showing acupuncture works for numerous conditions. According to Chi, Dr. Willensky answered, "I wish you hadn't called my bluff. We just don't want to pay for acupuncture even if it works."

Empire BC/BS of NY currently restricts acupuncture use so much that providers can't treat most patients and expect to be paid. This is how some medical doctors and insurers keep healthcare dollars in the fraternity of western medicine.

Similarly, though Congressman Maurice Hinchey (NY) has reintroduced the Federal Acupuncture Coverage Act since 1993 it has yet to pass in 15 years! This means Medicare and Medicaid cannot reimburse for treatment.

On the state level, Workers Comp and No-Fault have no mandate to pay for NYS Licensed Acupuncturists and yet they pay medical doctors to do acupuncture with little training and often poor results. Chi says this bias damages the public by denying proper training, care and results.

Chi may know what he's talking about. He has treated about 100 medical doctors, cured superstar actors and done over 100,000 treatments in 25+ years, such as a 5-year-old girl with autism who began speaking for the first time and acknowledging the people around her, a result he calls "typical."

Chi created the SUPERTOUCH(TM) system known for fast, lasting results to answer ineffective treatment of neck and back pain. He also has a patent- pending Magnetized Acupuncture Needle bound for release later this year.

Rationally, insurance would pay for such highly trained acupuncture physicians, yet millions of people pay out-of-pocket each year.

Western doctors should act as "screeners" for patients, says Chi. They should treat emergencies, find cancers and specialty conditions, leaving most pain, chronic fatigue, diabetes II, asthma, autism, digestive, ADD, ADHD, stroke rehab, and more to licensed acupuncturists for far superior, lasting results.

Chi notes that Chinese medicine also quickly cures hot flashes, shingles, acne, IBS and more while many western pharmaceuticals require ongoing use and can induce suicide, leaking heart valves or kidney and liver damage.

"We need a Healthcare Revolution," relates Chi, "or we'll continue to choke on healthcare costs. The savings will be HUGE, not to mention that people will be happier and healthier. This is the New Medicine ... and it works!"
