“Chiropractic is health insurance. Premiums small. Dividends large.”

You won’t go a day without reading or hearing something in the news about the nations healthcare dilemma. Who’s going to foot the bill? Who will be covered? Is it an inalienable right? Is it a privilege? And on, and on. Well, I’m not about to get in on the argument on who’s right or wrong. I did, however, want to shed some light on the top 3 reasons why I believe chiropractic is your best choice for health insurance.

Reason #1: It’s Not Sickcare

Do you realize that the United States spends more on health care costs than any other nation in the entire world? And not just by a little either. Per capita, we spend $8500 per person per year on healthcare! That’s nearly twice as much as the second costliest nation, the United Kingdom. To add insult to injury, according to the World Health Organization, do you want to guess where the U.S. stands in overall health in the world? Please, try to guess. We’re ranked 37th. That puts us behind countries like Saudi Arabia, Colombia, and Slovenia (had to brush up on my geography for that one). You would assume that since we spend so much, we would also be the healthiest, correct? Therefore, the only conclusion I can draw is that what we call “healthcare”, is truly “sickcare”. It’s a sad fact, but little is being done to actually prevent sickness and disease in this nation. The reasoning behind it is obvious, and I hate to say it, but there’s just not a lot of profit to be had in prevention and there never will be comparatively.

Inversely chiropractic is founded on principles of health and wellness. Our number one priority is the removal of vertebral subluxations, to restore the body’s inherent ability to heal itself, without the use of drugs or surgery. Prevention is and will always be the most efficacious approach to keeping costs down. Sure, it’s the path less taken. Has been for over 100 years, but guess what? People under chiropractic care, get well.  That leads me to my second reason.
