“The artist is the creator of beautiful things. To reveal art and conceal the artist is art’s aim. The critic is he who can translate into another manner or a new material his impression of beautiful things.”
CHAPTER 1. Loomings
Call me Ishmael. Some years ago—never mind how long precisely—having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.
Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.
The artist is the creator of beautiful things. To reveal art and conceal the artist is art’s aim. The critic is he who can translate into another manner or a new material his impression of beautiful things.
In these troubled times, perhaps no institution has unraveled more quickly and more completely than American medicine. In only a few decades, the medical system has been overrun by organizations seeking to exploit for profit the trust that vulnerable and sick Americans place in their healthcare. Our politicians have proven themselves either unwilling or incapable of reining in the increasingly outrageous costs faced by patients, and market-based solutions only seem to funnel larger and larger sums of our money into the hands of corporations. Impossibly high insurance premiums and inexplicably large bills have become facts of life; fatalism has set in. Very quickly Americans have been made to accept paying more for less. How did things get so bad so fast?
Breaking down this monolithic business into the individual industries—the hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, and drug manufacturers—that together constitute our healthcare system, Rosenthal exposes the recent evolution of American medicine as never before. How did healthcare, the caring endeavor, become healthcare, the highly profitable industry? Hospital systems, which are managed by business executives, behave like predatory lenders, hounding patients and seizing their homes. Research charities are in bed with big pharmaceutical companies, which surreptitiously profit from the donations made by working people. Patients receive bills in code, from entrepreneurial doctors they never even saw.
The system is in tatters, but we can fight back. Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal doesn't just explain the symptoms, she diagnoses and treats the disease itself. In clear and practical terms, she spells out exactly how to decode medical doublespeak, avoid the pitfalls of the pharmaceuticals racket, and get the care you and your family deserve. She takes you inside the doctor-patient relationship and to hospital C-suites, explaining step-by-step the workings of a system badly lacking transparency. This is about what we can do, as individual patients, both to navigate the maze that is American healthcare and also to demand far-reaching reform. An American Sickness is the frontline defense against a healthcare system that no longer has our well-being at heart.

*UPDATE* I just opened a new tub and it’s horrible. Not the same color or consistency. I tried it and it doesn’t have the right flavor and it’s also almost sandy in my teeth 🤢 I added a comparison pic with a good one (left is good, right isn’t)…

I should be using it every day, forever.
Here is why: 1. Noticeable changes in my finger and toenail growth. While during my entire life I’ve not been able to have nice finger nails, while taking this product I’ve noticed that they grow thicker, stronger, and no longer flake or break easily. 2. The same above applies to my hair. It is notably more shiny and strong. 3. My skin seems to be less temperamental. I’ve been prone to reactive acne and redness. With this I’m pretty much normal.352 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abusecoleycole994.0 out of 5 stars Do keep in mind there aren’t any sweeteners added so I honestly can’t expect much but if I were to describe the taste when added to water it would be like pond waterReviewed in the United States on May 18, 2017Verified PurchaseI have used this product for the last 3 months and I have noticed a marked improvement in my digestion. I would give this product 5 stars if not for the taste. Do keep in mind there aren’t any sweeteners added so I honestly can’t expect much but if I were to describe the taste when added to water it would be like pond water, it is not pleasant and I have to chase it with my coffee in the mornings.
**Update** I stopped using this product for a few months to see if I could really see a difference and let me tell you, the difference I noticed was huge! Within just 2 weeks after stopping use I noticed I started having digestion issues and my GERD resurfaced with a vengeance. Now I am not a health professional and I will not tell you that this product will cure GERD, I am saying that most people who have GERD need to seek a balance in their diet to ease symptoms and this works for me, it may work for you.389 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseSouthern gal4.0 out of 5 stars SUPER GREENS | #1 Green Veggie Superfood PowderReviewed in the United States on March 6, 2018Verified PurchaseI have done this once and BOY, I think it cleaned me out but good! LOL. I wish I could find one though that did NOT taste SWEET. They ALL do! I LIKE my vegetables tasting like vegetables! So I bought a little 2 cup mixer and I’m going to try to mix this w/some spinach or kale and celery and see if I can get it more vegetabl-ee. I would like to substitute one meal for this each day. I want to continue to lose weight but want to make sure I am still getting healthy nutrients. The sweetness is why it only got 4 stars. They make one all vegetable tasting and sell me that…I’ll give ’em 5! Well, I discovered if you add TOMATO JUICE to it, it is wonderful tasting and very vegetabl-ee!!! I really, really LOVE it now!231 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abusewildflower1.0 out of 5 stars Ingredients from ChinaReviewed in the United States on November 30, 2017Verified PurchaseI wish I’d read through the question section before buying. “Most” of the ingredients come from China..

I won’t go so far as to claim this is a green miracle, but it does taste pretty good. And I think I feel better when I’m regularly using it.
Typically, I mix this with 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, 8 oz almond or coconut milk, a handful of frozen strawberries and bananas (no sugar added), a teaspoon of peanut butter and dash of cinnamon.
My teen daughter even likes these smoothies, despite the greenish color.

Maybe it’s the way I am mixing them, but I don’t have an issue with the taste at all! I actually find the concoction I make very tasty. I can’t say I am feeling any positive effects yet but I am a patient person and I know that good things don’t happen over night. I mix a scoop of the super greens with one granny smith apple, 1/4 lime, 1/4 bag of frozen mixed berries, unsweetened almond milk, light vanilla yogurt and water. It tastes fantastic!!!! Now I do mix all of this in a Ninja IQ and mix it very well. No grit at all. I actually look forward to making my “concoction” every day and am hoping to see results soon. The major result I am looking forward to is to give me some more energy which, so far, has not happened but I’m not giving up!!! For those of you who are having an issue with the taste, I would suggest mixing it with something else. In my opinion, the lime has made the biggest difference. I use the peel and all and I can definitely taste the lime. I like adding the apple too. Just some suggestions….126 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseMarcoT5.0 out of 5 stars AmazingReviewed in the United States on November 30, 2017Verified PurchaseI’ve been taking this in the morning first thing for about 3 months now and have noticed notable improvements. I’m no longer sluggish throughout my day and have been able to cut my coffee intake in half! I also have noticed that I have been keeping the cold away this season even with everyone around me having one. I don’t mind the taste at all. I also will add a bit of fresh lemon juice to it to add a bit more flavor and a vitamin C boost. Won’t go a day without it!122 people found this helpfulHelpfulCommentReport abuseSee all reviews from the United States
