Which Road Will You Take?
What’s the difference between traditional medical care and the Maximized Living plan? Below we’ll look at some of the ways Maximized Living follows a different path to health.
Road 1: The Road Most Travelled or The Traditional Medical Model
- Americans Take 25 million pills an hour.
- The citizens of Canada average 14 prescriptions per person. 35 per person age 60-79 and 74 per person 80 or older.
- As many as five out of six Americans die of heart disease and cancer.
- 4.5 million people in the U.S. have Alzheimer’s. This is a number that has doubled in the last two decades.
- 118 million antidepressants are prescribed each year for some 57 million American citizens who have been told they have a mental disorder.
- 25,000 people killed by hospital error in Canada each year.
- One billion worldwide are overweight. The United States Congress calls this problem “as serious a threat as global warming.
- Over 22 million children worldwide are overweight and at risk of serious cardiovascular disease. This number has doubled in the last 20 years for children and tripled for adolescents.
- Autism impacts as many as 1 in 68 children. 1 in 35 for boys.
- Canada is dead last for timeliness and quality of care.
- The U.S. is dead last in health care according to Reuters in 2008.
- 62% of all bankruptcies are due to medical expenses. More than ¾ of these people had insurance.
Clearly, conventional wisdom when it comes to health, hasn’t worked. The challenge is that people are looking for better ways to pay for or different ways to travel down the exact same road. So even if we made this road cheaper or added wellness exams, preventative “medicine”, or early detection scans, you’re still traveling down the same road. As a result, no matter what has changed, you always end up at the same destination: crisis, disease, and early death.
Road 2: The Road Less Travelled Or The 5 Essentials Of Maximized Living
ESSENTIAL 1: Maximized Mind
The first essential is Maximized Mind. This essential is about understanding the true principle of health and healing to create a mindset of success. After all, it is function and lifestyle, not genetics, that determine well-being.
Half of heart disease deaths can be avoided with lifestyle changes. Almost 200,000 lives can be saved if certain heart risk factors are cut, even modestly.
ESSENTIAL 2: Maximized Nerve Supply
Maximized Nerve Supply involves restoring and maintaining the proper function of the nervous system through spinal correction. George Bakris, MD, Director of the University of Chicago hypertension center found that Chiropractic adjustments reduce blood pressure better than two blood-pressure medications combined.
Vertebral misalignment is common in patients with atopic dermatitis and bronchial asthma. Adjustments caused a 70% improvement in allergic disease. In his study, Yasuhiko Takeda found that vertebral misalignment is a common characteristic found in patients with atopic dermatitis and bronchial asthma. He also found that chiropractic adjustments caused a 70% improvement in allergic disease.
ESSENTIAL 3: Maximized Quality Nutrition
Maximized Quality Nutrition is nutritional science that sustains well-being, disease prevention and ideal weight management. Overweight women are up to sixty percent more likely to develop any cancer. Diets loaded with healthy fats significantly reduce your risk of prostate cancer. If we eat more naturally and avoid the processed foods of modern society, we will live healthier lives.
ESSENTIAL 4: Maximized Oxygen & Lean Muscle
Maximizing oxygen intake and lean muscle mass can help reduce the damaging effects of aging. A study showed that if you learn how to exercise the right way through short bursts of maximum energy output, one can induce a “good” hormone response. Cutting edge exercise programs that work to facilitate optimum fitness in minimal time are your best bet. Just by walking 30 minutes a day, symptoms of depression can improve faster than with pharmaceutical therapy.
ESSENTIAL 5: Minimized Toxins
Minimizing toxins in your body increases its ability to permanently remove toxins from cells.
The EPA reports that there are over 70,000 chemicals used commercially. These chemicals are found in household cleaners, plastics, pesticides, personal care products, foods, drugs, water, paints, fabrics, and floor and wall covering are leading causes of cancers, gland issues, and many of today’s common diseases.
Forge A New Path
The road most travelled has made people sicker, unhappier, more overweight and more out of shape than ever. The modern medical model is not healthcare, it’s disease care. Don’t make the mistake of waiting for a crisis to think about your health.
So where does the road less travelled take us? One five year study on Chiropractic maintenance care showed that chiropractic patients spent thirty-one percent less on health care and had fifty percent less medical visits than the national average. This calculates into:
- 85% less pharmaceutical costs
- 59% less days in the hospital
- 60.2% fewer hospital admissions
- 62% less patient surgeries
The road less travelled can save families hundreds of thousands on healthcare while avoiding disease and suffering. This is the road beyond health care and wellness. At Maximized Living, we study health, not just disease. It’s a complete system for living. We don’t simply treat symptoms, we find and correct the cause of health problems.The choice is clear.
Millions of people around the globe are beginning to learn how to take control of their health and get results they never thought were possible. Maximized Living is one of the largest group of elite Wellness Doctors in the world and the only network certified in the 5 Essentials.
You’ll be amazed at the results Maximized Living has the potential to help you achieve.
