Dependence on Our Insurance
The allure of free things is always strong. This is perhaps one reason why we only seek medical care that comes for free, or at least discounted, through our insurance providers. But does the convenience of paying less really outweigh the benefits of living a healthy and holistic lifestyle?
Our medical insurance is our safety net when we fall ill. But the cause of many of our illnesses and diseases can be traced back to poor lifestyle choices. Do we eat healthily? Do we get enough exercise? Or make time for meditation? These are things we give up to live a modern and convenient lifestyle. However, this level of convenience has consequences for our health.
A holistic doctor can identify the root causes of our medical concerns and can treat them, starting at the most basic level. Identifying the problem begins with a consultation and a full diagnosis of your body. Following this, a strategy will be created to restore full health. And it doesn’t stop there. While modern medicine will give you an immediate ‘sticking plaster’ solution, holistic living means changing your lifestyle to better suit your body’s needs.
Whether or not alternative or preventive medicine is covered by our health insurance (and more often than not it is covered in the UAE), part of living a holistic lifestyle is prioritising our health and incorporating it in our lifestyles. Choosing to live a healthier and more holistic lifestyle will certainly bring more benefits than opting to be apathetic about our health.
