02 Jun Wellness Dollars and Cents

Most Americans have a disease-focused outlook on health, not thinking much about their health until something goes wrong. The World Health Organization defines health as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” but we tend to think of wellness as a luxury to be sought after when all the bills are paid, the kids are in bed, the house is clean, etc. Actually, it turns out good health is a great investment. One Harvard Medical School study found that the return on one of their preventive measures was $36 for every dollar spent.

When we’re not sleeping well, when we’re overweight, when we’re not eating right, we grossly underestimate the cost of those lifestyle choices on our longterm health and our pocketbook. Many insurance companies and company health plans exacerbate the situation by often failing to cover preventative measures like botanical remedies, nutritional counseling, massage, acupuncture and exercise programs that would save people and governments money in the long run.
