Staying Healthy Can Make You Rich!

by Dr.Gerard Cassista

gold apple on the gold coinsIt is almost impossible to go anywhere, read anything or speak to someone nowadays without hearing about the economy and the recession. While it is true that some things are not going well, it is important to remember that many things are still going just fine. Something I saw last week was very interesting. It is well known that over 50% of bankruptcy in the US is due to skyrocketing health care costs. During times like these, many people are changing how they live to help deal with the crisis. What I saw that I found very interesting is a statistic that almost one third of the people in this country are starting to work out more, eat better food and lead a healthier lifestyle! It has long been my opinion that if everyone did that, there would be no economic problem, because most of our money goes toward taking care of a small percentage of people with really poor health. It is said that 90% of our national health care cost is spent on less than 10% of the people, but we all have to pay for it. It has also been said that within a very few short years, some say 5 to 8 years max, there will not be enough money to take care of the growing number of people who will require it. Staying healthy leads to much lower health care costs, which means more money for everything else in life.

If you are reading this, you are one of those people who need to take a good look at what we eat, how we live, and how we take care of ourselves, because we will literally be on our own, with very little or no help on the way. We are a wellness office. If you have questions about working out, what to eat, stress management, health issues or how to have more fun in life, we might be able to help. We have many resources for you and if we don’t have exactly what you need, we can get it for you. Staying healthy will make you rich!! It can definitely help keep you out of bankruptcy!
