Secret #1 - We need to be proactive, not reactive, when it comes to our health.
The current "Health Care" model in the US is actually better classified as "Sick Care", meaning that we wait until their is a problem before we do anything about our health. While sick care and crisis care are very important services for our culture, they are not health care, and passing sick care off to a society as health care ultimately leads to a sick society. This can be seen with the current health care crisis that the US is experiencing. Although we spend more money each year on health care than the next top 9 countries combined ($2.6 trillion in 2010), we ranked 37th in the last World Health Organization report on the healthiest nations. We need to realize that we cannot rely on drugs and other medicine to make up for poor lifestyle choices when it comes to our health and take responsibility for our own health and the choices we make regarding it.
