What does accepting the medical model mean?
Having sifted through the contents of multiple medical bins I can safely say primarily injecting, infusing, cutting open and draining. Lots of equipment and loads of tubes and bags.
What does not accepting it mean?
Western medicine sprukes its own success through total ownership and loyalty from the people who run the media and governments world wide, kept afloat by the lucrative business of creating and maintaining medicated and vaccinated ill health. Natural therapies and medicines are discredited and of no interest to funding models because the goal is restoring and maintaining health rather than ensuring an ongoing and ever increasing income.
Two completely different models with two completely different outcomes. Which one do you subscribe to?
Back in 2004 The Medical Journal of Australia (MJA) was advocating working with popular natural therapies, acknowledging the faith of their patients in natural therapies because of their success. There was a brief conciliatory dialogue. Natural therapies also were acknowledged with Private Health Funds offering subsidies for consultations. Families who chose not to vaccinate were still allowed to participate in society without exclusion and were not financially penalised. Sure they had to get the approved form signed by a GP or Immunisation Provider and this could be a difficult and humiliating experience by all accounts, but when you are fed crumbs when they threaten not to feed you at all you are grateful for them.
But it has tipped of course. No more crumbs. Now if you make those choices you are not even tolerated. It's still $'s and none of them are for you. No subsidies for child care, no payment to assist in providing for your children and very soon no $ support in the current health system for natural therapies. Oh and they don't want your children to play with vaccinated children.
It's been like this for over 200 years since the blood letters and concoction makers combined to stomp out natural health to make people reliant on a very lucrative medical and pharmaceutical industry. They have achieved their goal but it still isn't enough and the Emperor has no clothes. The model they describe as health is anything but.
Studies have shown that about 80% of people who seek medical help have conditions which either would get better if nothing was done or cannot be improved by drug treatment.

This is a summary of the health history of a boy, taken from the book by Lisa Landymore-Lin, Poisonous Prescriptions - A study of prescription history in children.
" Before the age of 6.5 years, Jeremy had received 14 courses of cephalosporins, 7 courses of Amoxil, 3 courses of erythromycin, and 5 courses of other antibiotics, making a total of 30 courses of antibiotics, an average of one course every 2.6 months. By one year of age, Jeremy had received two course of antibiotics; it was only after exposure to antibiotics and an antihistamine (Pinton) that he is brought to the doctors complaining of a cough. As his exposure to antibiotics increases, Jeremy is reported to be suffering from catarrah, wheezing and chest complaints, until he is finally diagnosed as asthmatic. Jeremy's first prescriptions for hydrocortisone cream in August and November 1983, are received immediately following a prescription for an antibiotic.
In December 1985, he is reported to have suffered from 6 months of facial itching during which time he receives 4 courses of antibiotics, all of which can have side-effects affecting the skin and cause an intense sensation of itching (pruritis).”
It has become normal to expect that children will be sick and will be medicated. Paracetamol, Tylenol, children's Neurofen especially.
The advertising tells you that you both will have a better sleep when restless baby is medicated. Or a better time generally! The evidence is showing that long term pain medication in adults is not only ineffective but can contribute to more pain. Codeine based pain relief is being abused by addicted individuals. How many celebrities will be lost to prescription drugs?
It is disturbing to hear that children ask for Panadol. So used to taking something that they expect it at any discomfort. Fancy having that conversation with a 3 year old, fancy letting them self prescribe!
We have gone so far off track from a 'healthy infant' model, to enjoying a brief stretch where they aren't sick, and accepting a lot of the time that they will always be sick but that it is managed with drugs. There is a whole network of medications and specialists to help you manage a child who is not necessarily expected to get better. And your life is a cycle of waiting for them to grow out of it and life to normalise somewhat.
The perplexing thing is that this is acceptable.
Child Health Australia has been created to collect and collate contacts for mutual support, to build local networks and to monitor and share the effects of the No Jab No Pay legislation.
