Extracted from Success Magazine November 2005 by world renowned economist and author of The New Wellness Revolution(pic), Paul Zane Pilzer said this.
“What about our health care? The truth is, what we call “health care” is not really the health business but the sickness business. Our medical industry today has very little to do with health. The $2 trillion we spend on medical care, which represents one-sixth of the U.S. economy, is concerned almost exclusively with treating the symptoms of illness. It has very little to do with preventing illnesses or with making people feel stronger or healthier.”
As it continues to create such impact in the US economy; it’s inevitable that Health Care is as important globally especially in this time of globalization.
Do you agree we are we moving backwards in health?
As Paul Zane Pilzer said in the article in this day and time, “We expect to live better years, not just more years”
Where lies the wellness environment when most information on Health Care is about sickness? Where do people turn to look for information and guidance?
The only way, Paul Zane Pilzer said is through someone close to you who had a wellness experience. Have you heard of the expression, “People do what you do, not what you tell them to do”.
In the context of wellness, it’s only by seeing it happen for yourself, suddenly a world of new alternatives open up to you and you start to think that probably it’s not that hard to be healthy.
