Propose-Universal Health system that includes both traditional and conventional Medical

This petition had 36 supporters

PM Trudeau is meeting with ministers regarding health care this Friday and I believe that a two tier system should be a viable health care option. Before any decisions are to be made, I believe that renegotiating what is included in our health care should be addressed.

The (Canadian Health) Act states that "the primary objective of Canadian health care policy is to protect, promote and restore the physical and mental well-being of residents of Canada and to facilitate reasonable access to health services without financial or other barriers.”

 Canada is renown for it’s medical system. It’s free medical system.  Like many other countries though, it is just that; a system, one that locks you into a road towards healing with no way out and no alternative or detour route. Those of us who would chose an alternative route do so at our own out of pocket cost with no help from the Canadian Health Care Act. While I must concede that this route is one of our own choice, those who have experienced a better quality of life, a longer life and one without the aid of a pill or the long list of side effects that accompany it, would like to humbly propose to the Canadian government, a two tier medical system.

For one individual, chemo might be the road they choose for eradicating the cancer that is in their body, for another, TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) acupuncture and herbal tinctures may be their intuitive choice.
At this time, our nation only allows one option unless the patient has the financial means to chose the other route they are stuck with a governmental choice.

What if there was a system that took into account ALL medical options? A two tier system that funded conceded the need for funding basic medical needs but took into account the desire for many Canadians to receive treatment from alternative practitioners. A contingency fund for and not limited to medical emergencies, for orthopaedic work or emergency services and other basic medical needs but offer a choice for the citizen who wishes to seek an alternative therapy.
