Take Responsibility for Your Health

Have you ever sat and pondered if your insurance company really cares about your health? In this week’s episode, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross dive deep into health insurance and question if it’s the right option for you and your family.

Dr. Traci mentions that according to Medicare guidelines, they do not cover anything which will help prevent disease, promote health, or prolong the quality of life. Unfortunately, most health insurance companies follow these guidelines, which means a lot of people who have health insurance are missing out on the care that could potentially change their life for the better.

Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci bring up that if they were running a health insurance company, they would cover nutrient and toxicity testing, the cost of good quality food, chiropractic care, whole house filtration systems, gym memberships, and more! Contrary to what Medicare offers, these benefits definitely help with disease prevention, promotion of health, and prolonged quality of life. The question is though, why do so many people have health insurance if they don’t get these benefits?

Since health insurance is the norm, people who have it usually follow the guidelines and don’t ask questions. For example, chiropractic care is rarely covered by insurance, therefore people can be hesitant to receive chiropractic care as a result. What they don’t know is, our MaxLiving chiropractors make chiropractic care as affordable as possible in order to help families achieve their optimal health.

Health insurance on the other hand can be a lot more expensive. Dr. Nick tells a story of when he went to get an MRI and the cash rate to pay for it was $875, vs. the insurance rate of $2,000.

At the end of the day, you have to make the decision of who you want to be responsible for your health. By taking the time to educate yourself on all of the options rather than just following the crowd, you’ll feel better about your decision. Everyone’s health situation is different, so follow whatever route you need to go in order to become your healthiest self.

How to Heal Fibromyalgia Naturally

How to Heal Fibromyalgia Naturally So many times patients with fibromyalgia are told that the only option they have to ease their pain is medication. While medication may seem like a great idea at the time, it can be extremely dangerous and could cause other complications down the road. In today’s episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Ryan & Ashley Berlin discuss what they believe is the best option to relieve fibromyalgia pain and help heal the body with corrective chiropractic care. Dr. Ryan explains a research study done by the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology (2022), which concluded that a misaligned neck (specifically the cervical curve) may be a key factor associated with fibromyalgia. For those who are unaware, a normal neck is supposed to be shaped like the letter “C”. Unfortunately though, physical, mental and emotional stress can cause the neck to change shape and become straight, creating dysfunction in the body. Luckily for patients with fibromyalgia, chiropractic care may be able to help regain the normal “C” shaped curve by removing interference in the spine and nervous system. Our MaxLiving doctors across North America have helped thousands of patients experience a life without limits. If you or someone you know has fibromyalgia, be sure to share this episode with them!
