The High Cost of Health Care

PharmacyOur high health care costs today would have been unimaginable in the 1950s.  Does anyone remember the days when doctor visits actually cost $3?  That’s all my mother paid when I was in grade school.

Here is an interesting piece on the evolution of health care in our country.

As health care costs continue to rise, the best way to avoid these high costs is to get and stay as healthy as you can by eating a healthy diet, exercise, finding ways to de-stress and, of course, get acupuncture treatment.

Does anyone remember the days when doctor visits actually cost $3?  The cost of drugs is so high that many people are unable to to fill their prescriptions.

Have you ever considered what it costs you in time and money to when you get and are unable to be as productive at your job as you would like to be?  How much time does it take out of your life when you become ill and have to keep visiting the doctor or even stays in the hospital?

Having to take regular medications, which are sometimes very expensive medicines is another high cost of health care.  Many chronic illnesses can sometimes be managed with dietary changes and adding vitamins and herbs instead of costly medicines.  This is not always the case, for sure, but sometimes it is and you will not experience the side effects of the medications.

Getting acupuncture treatments to become and stay healthy is the best investment you can make for your health.  Acupuncture is your “wellness insurance.”
