Dr. Russell Brokstein, chiropractor and owner of Hometown Family Wellness Center, educates the local communities of Freehold, Howell, Marlboro, Manalapan, Colts Neck and Jackson, NJ about health and wellness.
Dr. Russell notes health care reform is a major topic and concern these days. Our government and many people feel it is the right of Americans to have health insurance. I would like to know your viewpoint on this. I believe health is a responsibility that most people take advantage of. By taking advantage, why is it the right of the people to then have our government and population pay for treatment they need to take care of their neglect. Where do people think this money is coming from?
As long as people keep making bad daily health decisions, health will deteriorate. Whether it be smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee and other caffeine beverages, sugar filled drinks, fast food, most foods with poor nutrition, not working out, the list goes on and on… our body will break down and start presenting with symptoms.
Sick care is very costly and our society treats it with expensive drugs and surgery which in most cases at best cover up symptoms and lead to future problems that need more drugs and surgery, setting up a vicious cycle.
When it comes to our automobiles and many appliances, we know maintenance is key to sustaining the performance of these objects. Many of these, we take better care of, yet we only keep them 5 to 10 years. We know if we put low quality fuel into our cars, the mileage will decrease, the engine will begin to have problems and costs will increase in fixing the car.
Well, our bodies are the same way. As the old adage says: You are what you eat! As we eat low quality food, our tissues and organs break down and become unhealthy. Daily we are introducing chemicals and toxins into our body thru what we eat, drink and breath. These chemicals break down the body and make us ill. What are you doing to clean out your filter system in your body? Doesn’t your body that will last a lifetime deserve quality care more than your car?
I challenge all of you to reflect on how you would like to improve your health and prevent future health problems. By introducing the right programs and making your health a priority, you will notice a difference in how you feel, look, and enjoy life! This is how to reform health care and reduce the costs of care. I would like to be The health and wellness coach in the Freehold, Marlboro, Manalapan, Howell, Colts Neck and Jackson, NJ area to help YOU obtain optimum health and wellness in the new year!!!! I will educate you on what to do, the programs to introduce better nutrition, remove toxins and chemicals, lose weight, and exercise to better health. Are you ready for the challenge?
