“The Doctor’s Report”
We spend more money and have greater technology on health than any other country in the world, yet many other countries (at least 26) are healthier than we are. More money and more technology are obviously not working out. They are not working out at all. Healthcare has become the 3rd leading cause of death. The fact is, even if we cured all the diseases in the world we would still not be healthy!
TOP THREE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH IN THE U.S.
- Cardio-Vascular Disease 750,000/yr 1 every 2 minutes
- Cancer 400,000/yr 1 every 5 minutes
- Medicine 300,000/yr *1 every 7 minutes
THE PROBLEM IS OUR PHILOSOPHY ON HEALTH MONEY/MEDICAL/MATERIAL POINT OF VIEW
We are simply a lot of complicated parts (materials) that are prone to breaking down. As each part breaks down we tinker with it and then tinker with it some more until it can no longer be fixed. Health is the absence of illness.
HOLISTIC/WELLNESS/NATURAL/CHIROPRACTIC POINT OF VIEW
If the body is kept whole and functioning normally then it has a tendency to stay well. The building of health is the best way to get well. The maintenance of health is the best way to prevent sickness and stay well. In this manner, you are not forced to meet the cost of failure of having to treat or cure an illness.
Health is not the absence of illness. Health is when your body works right, at its God-given potential.
