Many times it takes a health event .... heart attack, diabetes, cancer .... to cause a person to stand-up and take notice of their health.
Researchers say Alzeimer's actually starts about 30 years before symptoms start to display. Think about autoimmune diseases. Most do not appear overnight. Rather it is a slow progression of worsening symptoms that could take years to diagnose .... symptoms that start with "normal", every day things like:
Eventually, however, these symptoms start occurring more frequently and more severely.
So, think about it ..... is it ever too early to invest in your health? It is easy to sacrifice healthcare when there is no evident danger or problems staring you in the face. Hey, I've been there and done that. And, sometimes, the money just isn't there.
Then, Lyme's hit me this summer. I knew the consequences of not being treated .... the possibility of it becoming a chronic condition .... another autoimmune disease. I did not want that so I searched for a naturopathic doctor who was knowledgable about Lyme's. It was hard to swallow the thousands of dollars I had to fork out up-front. However, I have to honestly say it was worth it. Very thorough lab tests were completed and I was able to learn a lot about my health....good areas and bad. I now also have some excellent health markers to compare for future changes in my health.
How much are you willing to pay for the latest Apple technology? The latest iPad Pro costs $1400. Averaged out over 30 months that is approximately $50 per month. Then, you will be ready for a new one.
How much are you willing to pay for a longer, healthier, happy life? The cost of my Lyme's and overall health assessment averaged over 30 months is approximately $90 per month. That is just $3 per day. And, hopefully, your health will be improving.
So, how much are you willing to pay for a longer, healthier, happier life .... $50, $100, $200 per month?
The point is to start some place. Do not get all caught up with the overwhelm .... the "have to do it all or nothing" overwhelm. If you are not sure where to start, reach out to me here and we can figure it out together.
