Three lifestyle-related chronic diseases—cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer, and type 2 diabetes—combine to make up approximately two-thirds of all deaths in the United States (read #4 & 5 – American Heart Association). Six in ten Americans live with at least one of these preventable, chronic diseases.
You want to live your best life now! It’s your LIFE, and you need good health to make the most of the years you have – no matter how many or how few they may be. It’s important to take action NOW.
Inflammation is a deadly foe. It works silently for sometimes years before stopping you. Heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancers do not occur overnight. They creep up on you. You may not feel a thing. Don’t let that fool you. How many people have said, “I feel great!” and then you hear they are in the hospital, or worse, have “unexpectedly” and tragically died?
Inflammation is always destroying your cells and body – always – even right now – even if you don’t feel a thing or notice the damage being done!
In a moment, your life can change: you no longer are fertile, you wake up in the hospital knowing you’ll never do the things you dreamed of, or you receive that medical bill that forces you out of your home.
So many people have to declare bankruptcy to treat advanced cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes. Insurance alone won’t cover all expenses – you have to think about co-pays, deductibles, and prescriptions. There are also the potential costs of bankruptcy, assisted living, long-term care or in-home nursing. And not all the best treatments are covered by insurance. As a doctor, this infuriates me and is why I have dedicated my life to providing a solution that everyone can use and afford. Lifestyle medicine.
By adopting an anti-inflammatory lifestyle, you’ll save thousands of dollars on copays, deductibles, prescriptions, and doctor visits as well as minimize the potential risks and costs of bankruptcy, assisted living, long-term care or in-home nursing.
This may sound a bit harsh … the truth is that each day we live brings us one day closer to that unexpected final day. It’s impossible to know how much time you have!
There is a sense of urgency around the way you are living and the choices you are making now. You can die of old age having lived a full and vibrant life, or you can die in pain having lived half a life that was filled with suffering and unrealized dreams.
The choices are yours, and it is later than you think.
More than 75% of all health care costs are due to preventable, chronic conditions.
Medical bills are reported to be the number one cause of U.S. bankruptcies. One study has claimed that 62.1% of bankruptcies are caused by medical issues. Another study claims that more than 2 million people are financially damaged by their medical expenses.
