Health Care Vs Wellness
Are Health and Wellness the same thing? Some people think they are, and they are related, but they are not the same.
We have spent years calling Doctors, Hospitals, Pharmacies and Pharmaceutical companies the basis for the health industry...when in reality these businesses are truly the sickness industry. The $2 Trillion we spend on medical care, which represents one-sixth of the U.S. economy, is concerned with treating the symptoms of illness.. It has very little to do with preventing illnesses or making people feel stronger and healthier.
What is the definition of Wellness, and it is not the same as Health Care. Wellness is the money you spend to make yourself feel healthier, even when you are not sick by any standard medical term. Money spent on the wellness industry are spent to make you stronger, make you feel better, see better, hear better, to fight the symptoms of aging.
We are in need and searching for a model that treats our body and its system as an integrated whole, a process in which we are proactive in aligning our health and wellness. Diverting the sickness altogether, by supporting health and wellness before the symptoms occur, repairing and mending along the way to save us pounds of cure and promote prevention.
It is not that we want youth, but the energy, health and wellness that go with it. We do look forward to the seasons and time ahead, but not the aging and disease that go with it.
Dr. Andrew Heyman states, "The drug based model of one pill for one ill has seemed to run it's course. While we occasionally win the battle, we are losing the war. It is time to rethink how we see disease processes and develop interventions."
Medicine falls way behind the general population in embracing a wellness based health care system. An enormous amount of money is being spent and we are in the middle of a socio-culture revolution. We are seeing major shifts in how people engage with their own personal health.
