Your Eventual Battle: Health-Care vs. Sick-Care

In my opinion, we live in the best country. We have access to the worlds best doctors, worlds best clinics / hospitals, worlds most advanced medical technology…but why does our Healthcare system suck? In one word answer – greed. Greed from the pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and many hospital medical administrations.  When money is the ultimate goal and not the health of a patient – we have a serious problem.  
Last week a Pharmaceutical Company CEO admitted they are in business to make substantial profits and not health from their customers.  Then a few days later the country become stirred up when the Pharmaceutical company that makes Epi-pens dramatically raised their prices from $100 to $600.  
If we stopped chasing the bottom-line and acted based truly on Hippocrates oath “to do no harm” and obtain a results-driven mentality to healthcare – every American would step out of line of the local pharmacy and step into lines to visit their local organic farmer, gym center and local Chiropractor for Life-Enhancing Adjustments.
If our country was founded on the freedom of healthcare – our government would not have to mandate insurance. It would not be illegal to treat certain diseases with specified treatment protocols mandated by a small group.  For example, In the US Cancer can only be treated with radiation and chemotherapy.
We could be better educated on how to live a proper healthy lifestyle. We would not be sold garbage disguised as food in the supermarkets or in the ‘drive-thru’ establishments.
Most people are unaware that they live in a self-perpetuating Sick-care paradigm.  They wake up with little to no sleep, eat meals with little to no substance (vitamins, minerals) and are high in sugar, have a stressful job, do not exercise, take multiple medications to escape pain or in the hopes to treat a symptom, sit for most of the day (at home, in car, at work, etc.) and wonder why they lose their health in their 50’s or 60’s. or 70’s.  These people typically suffer with pain, dementia or have other health problems.
Our view of healthcare would morph from being ‘Sick-care Driven’ (the pursuit of eliminating symptoms to mask the true underlying problem of bodily dysfunction) to true ‘Healthcare Driven’ – the practice of prevention by utilizing:
1. Proper nutrition with vitamin/mineral rich foods that are organic, grass-fed and minimizes other man-made properties.
2. Proper fitness to create lean muscle, maximizing oxygen levels to all bodily tissues, recirculate the lymphatics and maintain a healthy BMI and Body Fat %.
3. Corrective Chiropractic adjustments helping to maintain proper biomechanics, improving immune functioning and bodily functioning free from nervous system interference
4. Maintaining a positive mental mindset based on love, empathy, respect, forgiveness and faith.
5. Minimize all possible toxins that may cause inflammation and weaken the body’s immune response and functioning. Toxins that we breathe, absorb or ingest whether directly or in-directly. Like like various chemicals, heavy metals, sugars and more.
Making decisions on these 5 essentials of a living a true ‘Health-care’ lifestyle allows this individual too have a life with better quality (less pain, diseases or health problems) and better quantity (more years).  These are the people in their 70’s and 80’s going on cruise ships and not stuck in nursing homes.  Where would you want to be?
Ultimately, you as an individual must decide what steps you will take to seek out and maintain your health.  Will you choose the Sick-care or Health-care approach?
