In 2009, a study published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine found that “U.S. health spending will reach $4.3 trillion in 2017.” This equates to $12 Billion per day, $500 Million per hour, and $8 Million per minute. A 2008 Congressional report published in JAMA 2009, estimated that 1/3 of health care expenditures result in zero benefit.” If you equate this 1/3 waste it comes to $1.4 Trillion per year, $4 Billion per day, $165 Million per hour, $2.7 Million per minute.” That is a lot of money going to waste. In this same article they found that “the benefits that U.S. health care delivers may not outweigh the harm it imparts.” In 2003 in the New England Journal of Medicine they found “of the more than 3.34 billion drug prescriptions filled in 2002, 1 in 4 caused an adverse effect.” I am not saying the health care system and pharmaceuticals are not needed; they are for certain ailments and diseases. But I am saying that we need to realize the way things are going now is making our country one of the sickest around. Chiropractic and Acupuncture is a much more effective treatment for many ailments and health problems than pharmaceuticals. Chiropractic and Acupuncture looks to the body’s ability to heal itself by removing nervous system interferences and balancing the body’s energy. Chiropractic and Acupuncture is much more cost effective as well.
