Most of us have grown up with some ingrained habits. Some good, some bad, and some just plainly stupid. Some things we do subconsciously, but we still knowingly get onto pretty unhealthy habits. Being conscious of healthier behavior steers us clear of diseases we could well do without.
Why are some people perennially unwell, while others are busy whistling away in good health? Is it all to do with bad luck? While some may have better odds of being free from disease, others can proactively limit their predilection to certain illnesses.Complex factors are at play when it comes to getting one illness or another.
I recently listened to a regrettable tale from a friend of another friend. One of their kin had been experiencing some unusual symptoms, and the diagnosis was elusive. She eventually ended up at the hands of surgeon who recommended surgery.
If you never get sick, and have found a way of maintaining optimal health longterm, you can get away with zero healthcare expenses. But that’s utopian and hardly achievable. Alternatively you can aim for a healthy lifestyle, combined with preventive measures that may end up minimizing visits to doctors, and accrue ample savings. All ordinary folk will however end up with healthcare expenses at some point. The trick is learning what to pay for, and how much. Or not paying anything at all.
