Healthcare spending, currently at $1.7 trillion, will soon be 1/5 of our economy. Even more sobering ½ of the money will come from the government. In other words, it’ll come from YOU and your tax dollars. And where will that money spent? Well hospitals, doctor’s visits and prescription medicine will eat up most of the money.
And here’s some more statistics from a website I found called www.stopthehunger.com. There’s roughly 7 billion people on the planet. Nearly 1 billion are undernourished. But get this…… nearly 2.5 billion our overweight or obese. Imagine the cost associated with this number. And yet, it would cost $6 billion per year to feed every single one of those hungry people on our planet, a mere drop in the bucket as a percentage of our healthcare spending.
Ask yourself, “are you part of the problem or are you part of the solution?” At WFC we teach solutions. You simply must start thinking differently about your responsibility to your health and the health of your family and ultimately the nation. Exercise isn’t just a nice thing to do, exercise is a necessity. Eating health and cutting the crap isn’t just a nice thing to do, eating right is a necessity. Learning to minimize stress and strengthening your ‘peace’ of mind muscles isn’t just a nice thing to do, it’s a necessity. And improving your posture and nerve system thru the chiropractic adjustment isn’t just a nice thing to do, it’s a necessity.
Imagine if more Americans took responsibility and did these simple things. Think of where we could spend the money we are wasting. We could improve our public schools in so many ways, technology, teacher’s pay, programs, buildings, etc. etc. We could feed the world, quite literally. We could improve our highway systems and infrastructure. We could invest in research and development so that we are leading country in medical and science advancements. We could invest back into our planet to ensure that our children, grandchildren and great children have a safe and healthy environment to live in. We could provide more public assistance to the hurting and needy of our society.
Take responsibility for your health. No one is going to do it for you. And let West Functional Chiropractic be your lighthouse guiding the way to optimal health.
