The discussion of healthcare continues in the headlines in the US on a daily basis. Not only were healthcare discussions a likely reason for many voters to participate in the the recent election of President Trump, healthcare costs continue to rise at an alarming rate. Truth is, no matter who you voted for in the election, everyone can agree that healthcare costs are out of control. Something needs to change, but what?
Here’s an idea:
Healthcare needs to take a big step into preventative care. Not only is it ethically correct, it is good for our nation as a whole. Do not get confused, I am not talking about early detection. Preventative measures means true prevention. It means taking healthy steps BEFORE any signs of ill-health. Prevention doesn’t look for disease and ill-health, it helps you avoid these things, by focusing on steps that do not interfere with an already healthy body.
Some examples of prevention for healthcare:
- Eating organic, healthy foods.
- Drinking clean, natural water.
- Exercise for health.
- Chiropractic care to remove subluxations to the nerve system.
- Massage to relax the muscles and mind.
- Meditation techniques.
- Healthy, natural sleep.
If healthcare truly wants to change in order to offer a high quality of life to those within our nation, we NEED to support the things that actually have shown to improve our quality of life.
