Healthcare Reform Bill: Will it improve your health?
The political struggle continues over the health care system and we continue to learn more and more about the hidden costs of the healthcare reform bill and the impact it will have on the economy. As we are finding out what we are going to get is not what we thought we were getting. The house wants to repeal the reform bill and to start all over on initiatives that will target the problems in the healthcare industry with fiscally responsible actions. The senate looks like it may hold the party line and support the current law. Many states are challenging the constitutionality of the law and the mandate for everyone to purchase health care insurance. No matter what happens in this next round of political shenanigans it is still your health that is on the line. The new system will not help you from getting sick, only you can control your own wellness.
You are just a statistic in the system, one of millions who may have to seek treatment from a myriad of degenerative diseases that plague our nation’s health profile. The list is long and includes heart disease, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s dementia, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis and obesity. These are the top eight health concerns that the World Health Organization warns that kills more than 24 million people a year and imposes increasing suffering and disability on hundreds of millions of others world wide.
So what can you do to make a difference in your own health profile? Are you doing all you can to ensure your wellness? This may be a new topic for many but the emerging nutritional medicine findings are making it clear that individuals can and are taking a proactive approach to preventive health care that is making a difference. The interesting part is that even though the verdict is clear few people are taking full advantage of the validated findings. Are you motivated enough to find out the truth about nutritional science and how it can change your life? The average person is not, they will just accept the status-quo, wait until their bodies develop a degenerative disease and depend upon the government and medical community to try to take care of them. Often it is too late to reverse the disease and we are faced with a lifetime of drug therapy to try to alleviate the symptoms of the disease.
Nevertheless, many people believe that the public health care system in our country still will not be able to provide the quality health care we have come to rely on. What can we do to protect ourselves so that we might survive in this new health plan paradigm?
We are faced with a probable shortage of doctors and as a result will have to face the reality of rationing our available health care. How old are you? How useful are you to society? These questions will have to be asked when your evaluation of eligibility of health plan care arises. If you are healthy now, at a productive age (in the eyes of the government) and have health insurance you might think you are set for life. Be careful! If you are not taking precautions now to keep your health you may be in for a big surprise.
Can we actually make a difference in our own personal health and wellness by practicing Preventive Health Care? It appears so, Health Studies now being published indicate that we can prevent degenerative diseases and live a longer, more productive and healthier life. These studies are providing more and more conclusive proof that it is entirely possible to resolve or prevent many degenerative diseases.
This concept has great potential in helping us reduce our dependency on our public health care system. Community health cost would go down as families learn how to implement practical preventive medicine concepts and remain healthier for a longer period of their lives. Fewer visits to the doctor’s office and less dependency on drugs to mask degenerative disease symptoms would reduce individual costs and help take the pressure off of the public health care system. If we can reduce the stress on our community health care system by preventing degenerative disease then we may only need a catastrophic type of health insurance in the future, for example insurance to cover trauma introduced by accidents and major operations.
Not many people will investigate this option for taking personal responsibility for their health. If you are one of the few who is truly interested in making a difference in your health and wellness TAKE ACTION NOW! Don’t wait until it is too late. Learn all you can about the emerging science and find out how nutrition, exercise and sleep all play a synergistic role in promoting wellness.
This is not a hypothetical case; people all around the world are taking advantage of the latest advances in nutritional science to improve their health and help create personal health programs to reduce their dependency on the public health care system.
