As you are probably aware, there is a big debate raging in the US regarding the issue of health care. Proposals are flying all over the place from all quarters on how to “fix” the system.
I have a simple solution to the problem.
It has taken me years to figure it out.
Personal trial and error.
You ready for it?
Don’t Get Sick!
I know what you’re thinking – “No kidding wise guy!”
But I am completely, honestly and 100%- Not Kidding!
I mean seriously, does this prize winning pie chef look healthy?
He took charge of his health, and so can you!
The #1 thing YOU can do to make the biggest impact on the “Health Care” system is to STAY OUT OF IT as much as possible.
Now I understand that accidents occur. We are fragile beings and things break – and our medical system is the best in the world at fixing traumatic injuries.
But when it comes right down to it, accidents are a relatively small part of the overall picture.
Take a look at the leading causes of death in the United States as put out by the Centers for Disease Control.
- Heart Disease: 631,636
- Cancer: 559,888
- Stroke: 137,119
- Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583
- Accidents: 121,599
- Diabetes: 72,449
Of the top six causes of death, accidents cause only 7.38%.
What is the common thread of the other 92+ percent?
They are largely behavior related diseases.
Too much food, too much sugar, too much alcohol, too much stress.
Not enough exercise, not enough sleep.
Not much there that has a thing to do with health insurance, who pays what and when, ppo, hmo, socialized medicine or any of that baloney.
I am not insensitive to genetic disease and inherited traits. Those things are real and do occur.
The fact is way too many of us have used them as an excuse, as if somehow the fact that your dad had heart disease means you should be 100 pounds overweight and taking 5 different drugs.
I have seen what happens when our clients take charge of their own health. You want to control health care costs? Think about how much you will save when you aren’t paying for thyroid meds, or multiple blood pressure meds, or drugs to help you control your blood sugar! I have seen that happen over and over (never take yourself off, always consult your doctor)
See how much better your back feels when you become flexible and can move freely again.
See how much more productive you can be when you have the energy you did 20 years ago.
It can and does happen, becuase we see it every day.
But it’s up to you!
Not your doctor, not your spouse, not your brother, sister, father, mother, boss, congressman, senator or president.
You are reading this because you are ready to make a change, and I applaud you.
And that’s why we are here, to help guide you as you take charge of your own health and well-being.
