Healthy Insurance

Over the past month I have learned something most of you probably already knew: Health Insurance is only for people who don’t need it. They won’t give it to people who need it. I know, I’m there right now. DENIED. My height-to-weight ratio is out of “spec” (I’d have to lose over 100 lbs to get “IN spec”) and I’m on medication for high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Both of which are fully under control and at normal levels right now, while I’m on my meds. The problem is, soon–without the insurance–I won’t be able to AFFORD the meds, which is going to throw ANOTHER wrench in the works!

An insurance guy we talked to recently (whose company of course denied me coverage) recommended Coral Calcium. He said it does some amazing things, and among them are the lowering of cholesterol and the lowering of blood pressure. I was going to give it a shot, but after reading a lot of pages like this and this I decided I’d better hold off for now. Ideas anyone? I’ve already begun a more regular exercise program and I’m trying to eat better.
