Your Drs and therapists don’t want you to get better, but your trainer does.

Your Drs and therapists don’t want you to get better.  It’s not good for business, if they cured you in one hour you would never need a follow-up or take home pills.

For instance, if you have high blood pressure your doctor will give you a pill ending in ” -pril ”  or an ace inhibitor type drug that will lower your blood pressure or BP.  Think you may suffer from depression, anxiety, or ADD?  Go to a therapist and they will prescribe uppers, downers  or the baby boomer favorite “Mary Jane” or medicinal pot.  Seriously?

We are very lucky to have such wonderful technology and advancement in medicine.   We have excellent doctors and therapists too, my point is from a professional service or business they make  $money$ seeing you repeatedly versus curing you the first visit.  They bill by how long it takes to treat you not because of the awesome value they offer or the  end result (which is what you came to buy).  If their service is prolonged  and you keep making appointments then they can build a clientale and sound business model at a lower price on the office call or visit over time.

Really you want less anxiety and lower BP so your doctor and therapists should tell you they charge $2500 (or what their reputation could sell) for your problem whether it took 3 days or 3 years.  After great service you would be very happy to recommend family and friends, they would get clients, have reputable customer service and of course more money.

Read the newspaper?  USA Today

Ideally, Smits says, depressed or anxious people would get written exercise prescriptions, complete with suggested “doses” and strategies for getting started and sticking with the program.  “Most physicians and therapists are aware of the effects,” says Chad Rethorst, a researcher at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. “But they may not be comfortable prescribing it.”

Read the whole article, it’s about the benefits of exercise.

I hope next you think about making an appointment for a professional service that you consider asking if they sell time or solutions? Seriously!! Thanks Simon Sinek

Obesity is the one thing you can control about yourself with the proper education and professional service.  Check your medications and compare side effects and cross reference the money you spend versus how much your overweight(BMI + 25).  The savings in food costs alone will make a huge difference in spending not to mention the health benefits you gain by getting rid of 80% of your medication side effects because of what you weighed and how it affected your life.  Don’t forget, over eating is a choice.

Get up, Get Fit – All of Us can, if You will
