The United States life expectancy lags 42nd in the world, after most rich nations, lagging last of the G5 (Japan, France, Germany, UK, USA) and just after Chile (35th) and Cuba (37th). The USA’s life expectancy is ranked 50th in the world after the European Union (40th). The World Health Organization, in 2000, ranked the U.S. health care system as the highest in cost, first in responsiveness, 37th in overall performance, and 72nd by overall level of health (among 191 member nations included in the study). The Commonwealth Fund ranked the United States last in the quality of health care among similar countries, and notes U.S. care costs the most by far.
We all have to be a steward of what we can do for ourselves. It is easy to fall into the sickness and disease model of healthcare. According to Harvard Medical, the brain is capable of functioning up to 120 years. We must maximize our potential. As a doctor of chiropractic, we don’t chase the symptoms but rather treat the cause of any diseases. Chiropractic incorporates the arts, science, and philosophy to give the best care to our patients. True HEALthcare starts from Above Down, and Inside Out. There is no other way.
Yours in Healthcare,
