Which option makes the most economic sense? To fix a problem or patch it up on the surface? Acting preventatively or always reacting to things? I would argue that, in the long run, the financial savings, as well as the benefits to daily quality of life, always lead us down the road to creating a more sustainable solution.
A lot of times we are reactive. We wait until we are sick (indicated by the presence of pain or symptoms) before we do anything. In fact, our entire healthcare system is based on this downstream model. If you were to have an accident or emergency this type of system works great, but what about your long-term health?
Statistics show in terms of long-term health conditions we are doing very poorly. Heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders are all on the rise.
It’s time to approach health in a preventative and proactive way. It’s no wonder our health care system is so expensive and failing.
Take care of your body. Keep your spine aligned. Stay hydrated. Get rest. Eat good food. Find ways to move.
Have a great week,
