Being healthy saves money

Being healthy saves money

How much money do you spend on healthcare? Not just for your insurance but also any out of pocket expenses that you owe like co-pay. Do you visit the doctors often, take multiple medications, and see specialists? An apple a day keeps the doctor away. A long time saying that we all probably have heard and very much true to the point that the healthier you are, the less you see a doctor. Do you realize the more you see one, the more you’re paying? Being healthy saves money.

Like many others, I have a medical history filled with heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. When I look back at how much I spent on medication, doctors visits, surgery, exams, and specialists, I spent a lot. Not only was my body feeling like it was deteriorating, I was spending my money away to keep me alive.

I went through a phase of chronic pain and came across a holistic person and said that if you get control of your health by eating right, your pain and health issues will go away. I thought I was eating healthy or semi-healthy. Little did I know, almost everything I ate contributed to my bad health. This post isn’t about how to be healthy but the financial benefits.

Long story short, I eliminated eating processed foods, rarely go out to eat, stopped eating meat and meat products, and started eating healthier/natural foods. It was a lifestyle change and a hard one at that. While changing my diet I also stopped taking my medications. Crazy huh? I was pretty crazy but had to get my life back and it required some drastic decisions.

Four months later, I got my bloodwork done and behold! My bloodwork was normal and my doctor asked me what I did. I told him that I stopped eating my medications and essentially went vegan. I spent thousands of dollars on doctors visits, exams, tests, specialists, and medication. It’s been almost a year with this lifestyle and I only went to the doctors twice for checkups. Plus I have no longer have any medication expenses.

I’m not indicating that you do the same as I did. Always consult with your doctor. My point is that getting healthy will save you money. You won’t have to go to the doctors as often. You won’t need to spend as much on medication. You’ll be spending less money and gaining more of your time back. You will gain a healthier lifestyle and you’ll actually feel much better.
