America's health is not good. In 2007, we spent $2.2 trillion on healthcare, which is an average of $7,421 per person, per year. The secret is, you can prevent many of the health problems that are bankrupting America today: Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, and obesity. These are called chronic preventable diseases. But you have to put the work in to prevent or rid yourself of chronic illness. If you don't want to put in the work, don't read this book. It's not that it's hard to do, but it's a change. It's different than what you're used to, but if you're willing to give six little, measly months to your health, this guide is for you. Just because something has been done a certain way for years, doesn't mean it's the right way to do it today. If that were the case, we would still be using typewriters. We would still be wearing Chuck Taylor basketball shoes. We would still be using the old golf clubs. As bestselling author Harvey McKay states a, "good leader understands that anything that has been done in a particular way for a given amount of time is being done wrong." In America's health care, things have been done a certain way for a period of time, but that does not mean it is giving us healthy results. Get Healthy Now for Life examines the myriad reasons and the action steps you can take to improve your health, and America's health. It is up to you, no one else, to put in the time (and sometimes the money) to get healthy now and live the life you've always dreamed.
