A friend forwarded me an interesting graphic recently that correlates annual health care spending per person with life expectancy in several countries http://bit.ly/7n0ukr. The standout, of course, is the USA, which according to the graphic has the highest expenditures per person and below average life expectancy. The debate about why this is so could go on forever and the issue appears to be nothing short of a Gordian knot. I’ve often wondered if the better part of the solution to the health care mess lies in a deeper understanding of prevention.
Chronic disease is developing momentum in modern society like a freight train without brakes. Modern medicine has had a hard time keeping up with the rapidly shifting and increasingly complex terrain that appears to be a side-effect of the present pace of living. The general public is increasingly dissatisfied with the health care system. Perhaps now would be a good time to take a different approach, but where can you start? I’ve often believed that the best way to fix a problem is to take steps to avoid its recurrence. There is no need to dry your shoes again if you can detour around the puddle next time. Your body works on mechanical, biological, chemical and energetic principles that, given proper care, make it surprisingly resilient. Balanced attention to the basics – balanced diet, sufficient rest, water and exercise – can work wonders. It is possible to get out of the rut that so many unfortunately and unwittingly fall into.
