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.

What Does It Take to Be a Chiropractor? with Dr. Ron Oberstein Today in this special episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, host Dr. Nick sits down with leading Chiropractor and President of Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Rob Oberstein. Life Chiropractic College West is a private college in Hayward, California is known for its Doctor of Chiropractic degree program, and has been accredited since 1987 by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Chiropractic Education and by the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners. In addition to his service as President of Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Rob has decades of experience as a practicing Chiropractor and is seen as one of the leaders of Chiropractic in North America. In this episode. Dr. Ron shares what it takes to become a Chiropractor, what made him choose the path of Chiropractic, and the potential Chiropractic Care has to change healthcare for the better. When asked about what it takes to be a chiropractor, Dr. Ron says that first and foremost, one must have “the heart to serve.” He explains that Chiropractic is more than a career, and is in fact a calling that takes years of study and a dedication to providing health and wellness. What very few people know is that Chiropractors go through years of arduous study, learning many of the same subjects as medical doctors. What sets Chiropractors apart from medical doctors, then, is not what they learn, but how they learn. As Dr. Ron explains, “we learn it in a different way,” focusing on Salutogenesis, which is the focus on factors that support human health and well-being, rather than focusing on factors that cause disease (otherwise known as pathogenesis). As Dr. Ron ...
Who to Trust When Making Health Decisions Part 2 Let’s face it – everyone makes mistakes. Although, when it comes to making health decisions, these mistakes could be life threatening. In the past, there’s been a lot of health practices and procedures that have been approved, but in retrospect ended up being more harmful rather than helpful. The idea that creating fear to incentivize and manipulate people’s freedom to choose, leads to the biggest question of all, “If something works and protects you, why should I be forced to use it as well?” Most people would agree the body has an innate intelligence and holistic ability to heal, yet the word “natural immunity” is being censored from use. As an individual, community, country, and globally, we have to recognize this pivotal time we live in, and walk the path that will empower us to live a life free of manipulation, toxicity, and most importantly, interference. In this week’s episode of the MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross further discuss who to trust when making decisions about your health.

It’s easy to talk about weight loss, healthy eating, and reducing toxins. It’s more difficult to discuss something as intangible as a mindset or philosophy. However, your health philosophy is the most important aspect of health for you and your family. Your health philosophy is what drives every decision you make, from your diet to your sleep patterns. If you have a poor health philosophy or lack a grounded philosophy at all, it can hurt you and your family through what you are eating, the toxins you are coming into contact with, the level of physical activity you are or are not participating in, and even how you prioritize your mental wellbeing. Health philosophy may be an intangible concept, but it is the single most important factor in establishing whether or not you will be successful in your pursuit of health. It is what will drive you to exercise daily, get preventative care from your chiropractor, and stick to healthy eating habits. Or, it is what will lead you to say a chronic symptom is “not that bad” until it becomes a legitimate health concern. The difference between true healthcare and what we like to call “sick care” is all dependent on your personal health philosophy. If you are dedicated to preserving health, you are pursuing healthcare. If you are complacent in treating illness as it appears and negatively affects you, you are reactively turning to care to treat an already present sickness––in other words, sick care. To truly be healthy, you have to establish your health philosophy before a health crisis strikes, because by the time you are facing a severe illness or chronic condition, you have already strayed away from ...
