Want Guilt-Free Comfort Foods for Every Meal?

Most of us are naturally comfort loving and we enjoy the comfort foods, especially when we have stressful days at work. We have regular cravings for our favorite dishes and delicacies. However, most of these dishes are too heavy on calorie intake and due to their richness can have a major impact on the waistline. It is difficult to ignore those hunger cravings, especially when we are pressed for time and energy. It is even more difficult to stop devouring these rich foods when they are close by at hand. Therefore I had always wanted to be able to quickly ditch the comfort food craving and switch over to a healthier alternative option.

Medical Cost Mystery

As we near the end of 2016 and turn into yet another year of massive healthcare spending, more and more consumers are demanding transparency in medical bills and healthcare costs. Despite our increasing collective knowledge and technological advancements , 0ne of the profound mysteries of the 21st century are the accelerating and mysterious medical bills. More consumers are now demanding improved transparency and financial solutions within the healthcare billing system. The healthcare industry will need to change from their traditional billing system based on an age old hospital’s master book to a price-matched one. Consumers are demanding more value for every dollar spent and are open to reviewing various options and procedures to manage the rising costs.

With the widespread use of smartphones, apps and wearable technology, we will see an increase in patientless hospitals where care is provided virtually. Video physician consults and real time physiological monitoring are a few of the ways that increasing health value can be obtained for every medical dollar spent. Additionally more and more middle-aged consumers are open to exploring alternative ways to finance their medical bills. This is now the time for the healthcare industry to model novel financial solutions using examples from other industries.

Shifting Focus from Illness to Health

Running to the emergency room when a chronic condition blows up or reacting to an illness runs as a common theme in the American healthcare system. We are forced into this emergent care or reaction mode to manage the illness or chronic condition. This is at best an inefficient management model or commonly referred to as ‘treating the symptoms and not the causes’.

We are a smart nation and unfortunately the healthcare system that we have established does not reflect that. Smart people typically do not react to everything, they are proactive and prepared. If the healthcare system is to survive the impending growth of the aging population as baby boomers overwhelmingly turn to mid-sixties, it has to take on more wisdom.

Let’s move from a reactive to a proactive system. Let us be more concerned with our health rather than with illnesses. One of the first steps is to focus on our health. Many experts believe that the future of our healthcare lies in our patients. Patients could change their behavior and attitude towards health and become more proactively engaged instead of passively receiving vital stats. The best healthcare is indeed ‘self care’.Shifting Focus
