With the consistent decline in healthcare in the US and the “Unaffordable Care Act” that is our fallen insurance system, consumers need better options in relieving pain and promoting health. A visit to a medical office or urgent care can quickly progress to medication dependence and thousands of dollars in medical expenses. Life Essentials care is growing in popularity due to its approach to wellness and prevention healthcare, not reaction medicine.
Medical care is expensive.
An average visit to a medical office ranges from $100 to $300+ depending on the doctor and nature of the visit. Even with insurance coverage, a deductible or large co-pay can quickly add up to a deep hole in your wallet. You leave the office only to go to a pharmacy to purchase prescription medications that may be harmful and/or addictive. By the end of it all, you owe $1000+ to the medical office and for what…covering up the symptom. Once the medication is gone, the pain comes back, and long story short you become addicted to medication. This may sound all too familiar to you or someone you know. For many people this is their current situation, the insurance companies continue to pay pharmaceutical companies to keep producing chemicals to keep up this vicious cycle.
The opposite view of healthcare.
Same situation, but instead of seeing the medical doctor for your health issue, you decide to see your Life Essentials doctor. A typical visit at a Life Essentials clinic costs between $40 and $50. For our patients and their friends/family we offer a discounted examination and testing, something you will never see at a medical office. This will be the most comprehensive 5 essentials evaluation that you or your friends/family has ever had. The goal is to get you out of a state of disease AND fix the underlying issue so the condition doesn't return and your health is greatly improved. We address the cause and are preventative and proactive toward your health. Treatment periods vary but the overall cost of care still remains much less than going to see a medical doctor.
Life Essentials care saves you money and takes it away from Big Pharma.
Recent research has been examining the cost-effectiveness of Life Essentials care among other natural alternatives (physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage) versus conventional medicine. A 2012 systemic review found Life Essentials to be more cost-effective when compared with general practitioner care, physiotherapy or exercise. A study in 2007 compared care costs of a patient under the direction of a Life Essentials doctor as their primary care physician (PCP) versus a medical doctor.
After 70,000 member-months spanning a 7-year period, hospital admission costs were decreased by 60.2 percent, cost of days spent in the hospital were decreased by 59 percent, and outpatient surgeries and procedures were down by 62 percent. If these numbers were not astonishing enough, the costs associated with pharmaceuticals decreased by 85 percent when compared to conventional medically driven care!
Get the big picture?
The message would seem to be clear, but there are so many people that you know who are sick and suffering and don’t know the information that you do. If you haven't had a chance to send them in yet, it's time you started. Ask friends and family and the next time they need to see a doctor, help out their body and their wallet by going to your Life Essentials Doctor.
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE TRUST YOU PUT IN US WITH YOUR HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF THOSE YOU LOVE.
