The United States makes up only 5% of the worlds population, yet consumes more than 75% of the worlds pharmaceuticals. So, the question becomes of the chicken and the egg. Are we getting more medicine because we’re getting sicker? Or are we getting sicker as a result of consuming more medicine?
In recent years, Functional Health care has surged with people seeking out a more natural alternative. And these practitioners are bucking against the system that has fought long and hard to the tune of billions, in order to keep the industry one that continues to pay them back in dividends. As it turns out, at the pills we’ve been popping may not be everything they were cracked up to be. In fact, you may be paying an unhealthy price for what amounts to a very profitable science experiment conducted by Big Pharma and your insurance provider. Here are four reasons to consider what’s really underneath the label of that little orange bottle.
Let’s face it. Pharmaceuticals are a multi-billion-dollar industry. And, in order to keep their bottom line growing, it’s imperative they keep you somewhere on the spectrum between healthy and dead. This ensures you keep coming back for more, and business keeps booming for them. Now, more than ever, in the face of a flawed system, it’s critical to take your health into your hands, instead of blinding swallowing any pill you’re prescribed. Your body, after all, is the only house you really have to live in.
Perhaps that’s one of the fundamental reasons that Functional Healthcare has started sweeping the nation. Although there are many misconceptions as to what it is, and how it works, there are three things you should understand when it comes to how they are changing the healthcare game for the good.
