The Skyrocketing Costs of Healthcare


​Fact: Up to 80% of our nation's health care costs are related to chronic conditions that have their origins in poor lifestyle behaviors

Fact: 1.8 trillion dollars of the 2.4 trillion spent on healthcare in 2009 can be attributed to unhealthy lifestyle behaviors

Fact: Our healthcare "system" is primarily geared toward returning people to their unhealthy lifestyles and not to changing their unhealthy lifestyle patterns.

Fact: Making positive changes to disease fostering health patterns can only happen when individuals are held accountable for making such changes.

Although this article was written in 2009 the numbers have only continued to rise to unacceptable rates and there doesn't seem to be any incentive to change the model from disease management to disease prevention.

It's up to individuals to manage their health and lifestyle choices and health coaches can help foster positive change by assisting their clients and holding them accountable for the changes they make in deference to their health.

MY PHILOSOPHY: 

 

I am concerned about how food and lifestyle affect our health, happiness and ovall wellbeing.

I work with clients to support them to improve their health and reach the goals that they set for themselves.

I invite you to contact me for a complimentary health history consultation.
