Is the Economy Taking its Toll on Your Health?

Posted by: Dr. Jessica L. Caruso

In times of economic struggle, why is it that our health care is the first thing we put on the back burner? Many of us in this society grew up thinking that preventative and maintenance care was frivolous, unnecessary…when things get really bad we can have it removed or take a pill for it. This type of thinking is exactly why our “healthcare” system is in the state it’s in.  Think about the cost of all those tests to determine which pill to prescribe, or which organ to remove!!! And then how much does surgery cost? How much does a hospital stay cost? How much time out of work do you need for recovery? Who is going to watch the kids during this time? Does your husband or wife need to take time off work too? And so the downward spiral begins…

Maybe it’s these ideas of “sickcare ” (not healthcare) that are the reason our health insurance premiums are through the roof?! Too many people in our country cannot even afford health insurance. It’s time for change: It’s time  we all take responsibility for our health and listen to the signals our bodies are sending us, and not mask these signals with over-the-counter medications, prescription pain killers, or statins. Instead, let us all focus on prevention-true health care — not symptomatic care. It truly is a more cost effective approach to your health. And it may even lower the costs of health insurance…hmmm…wouldn’t that be something.  Don’t let current economic issues create more health issues for you in the future. The decisions we make today about our health determine our health tomorrow.
