Wealth or Health? Investment or Expense? by Dr. Kelley Mulhern, Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness, LLC “So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.” - A. J. Reb Materi

and untold heartache in the future. Don’t accept pain and disability as a given. Choose to dance with your daughter at her wedding, romp with your grandkids, and live life to it’s fullest by investing in prevention.

During the Holiday Season, we’re reminded to be grateful for all the wonders we have in our lives, including our health. The irony is that we often make poor choices regarding our health this time of year. We experience too much stress, we spend too much money, we eat too much food, we sleep too little… and all of these things can cause us to get run down or sick.

It’s never too late to start taking better care of yourself. Commit to making 2017 YOUR year of better health. Your body, your family, and your bank account will thank you for it!

Common sense tells us it’s far easier (and cheaper) to keep your current state of health… and to prevent illness… than it is to recover your health once you’ve had a health crisis. Treating an illness or disease can be a huge expense. In 2015, healthcare spending reached $10,000 per person. Would you rather invest that money in an illness, or in your health and in your family?

Imagine if people invested in preventive care for their bodies. What if they ate healthy foods…managed their stress…and routinely cared for the structure of their bodies over the years? What if they used proper exercise and regular chiropractic care to keep their nervous system running their body the way Mother Nature intended? Exercising to stay physically fit, managing your stress, receiving structural care before degeneration sets in, and eating healthy food is an investment in your future health. If you can prevent chronic diseases and degeneration, you’ll save thousands of dollars
