Healthcare in America is too expensive, and the system as a whole is broken and fractured.
Where does the root of the problem lie, and do we have any other alternatives at our disposal?
The only way to survive the sick-care system is by taking our health into our own hands.
We can’t hope for health insurance companies or politicians to save us, we have to be proactive about our wellbeing.
So, where do we begin?
How can we start taking more responsibility for our health while we still have it, so we don’t end up preyed upon by the systems that be?
In this episode, President and Co-Founder of Distilled Concepts, Derek Winn shares how to navigate the choppy waters that are the American healthcare system.
If you’re not the proactive scientist of your own health, you will be preyed upon.
Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
- Why American healthcare is so expensive:
We’ve had a bigger impact on the cost of healthcare than we may realize. By choosing high-cost, low-quality facilities like hospitals for routine procedures over their freestanding counterparts, we’re rewarding them for charging more. If we want that to change, we have to take control over our choices.
- The importance of being proactive about our wellbeing:
Most people don’t even begin to think about their health until they’re forced to by disease or ailments. Prevention is always better than a cure, so embrace a cleaner, more health-conscious lifestyle before it becomes a necessity.
- How to become our own doctors:
Avoid running to the doctor for a sniffle diagnosis by doing some research. We should all become students of our health and have a better understanding of what’s going on in our own bodies.
