The foundation of our current health care situation is the treatment of illness and disease rather than the promotion of good health, keeping us from living to our highest potential. Health is defined as the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Medical conditions such as type II diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease, and obesity can be prevented with the right health care system. These types of illnesses now cause 70% of U.S. deaths and account for nearly 75% of health care expenditures.
Prevention is ideally suited to addressing chronic conditions that take decades to develop and then manifest as life-threatening and fatal exacerbation’s. If we create the conditions in our bodies and our lives that make it possible for health to happen we would avoid most of the chronic health conditions that we are plagued with. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one of the best way to prevent attaining a chronic condition. It is also imperative to visit your primary care physician annually to keep a record of your health. Preventative precautions such as this can save your life.
