Why Being Proactive is So Important!
Currently There is a Landscape of Disease and Sick-care.
Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Think: heart disease, diabetes, asthma and cancer.
Over 1 million American lives could be saved annually through better preventative care and treatment of chronic disease.
60% of Americans have one chronic condition and 40% have more than 1. Women are at a greater risk of having multiple chronic conditions.
75-90% of doctor visits involve stress related complaints. Emotional stress is a major contributing factor in chronic disease.
The Empowering Positive: The CDC estimates that 80% of heart disease and stroke, 80% of type 2 diabetes, and 40% of cancer could be prevented, delayed or alleviated through simple diet and lifestyle changes. These statistics are staggering... Yet the ability to prevent chronic disease and change the story is encouraging.
