The Future-of-Health-Care

A Perfect Storm of Opportunity

(Thanks to Eugene Fox for this article).

"The future belongs to those who see the possibilities before they become obvious." So wrote John Sculley, former Apple CEO. What follows is for those who can see the future of health care for the opportunity it is.

When it comes to business, people come in two flavors. Entrepreneurs care for people but are 'wired' for business. They look for profit potential, even though they may care deeply for people.

Most of us are the other flavor. When it comes to helping others we tend to be motivated by compassion. We are willing to help people, regardless of whether it makes us any money or not. However, we are pleased when we discover we can gain financially by helping others. So then, when it comes down to it, two 'flavors' are not all that different.

The following is for both, but it will likely be more appealing to entrepreneurs.

We need to talk about health care. IBM gave it a lot of thought and wrote, "Healthcare is in crisis. While this is not news for many countries, we believe what is now different is that the current paths of many healthcare systems around the world will become unsustainable by 2015. Healthcare systems that fail to transform will likely 'hit the wall' and require immediate and major forced restructuring - a 'lose-lose' scenario for all stakeholders."

They singled out Ontario, Canada, as an example. Canadians get universal ("free") health care (sickness care actually), funded by governments. IBM commented, "In Ontario, Canada's most populous province (12.5 million), healthcare will account for 50% of [all] government spending by 2011, two-thirds by 2017, and 100% by 2026."

They were wrong. Health care in Ontario is already consuming 50% of our government's budget, four years ahead of what IBM anticipated. That's unsustainable and will force radical change. Transformation must come. It's similar throughout the developed world.

But the problem is not just the financial burden. The London Free Press recently reported that five million Canadians (14% of the population) have no family doctor. They also state that Canada will be short "for sure" 5,800 doctors by 2010, and "probably" 10,400. Making matters worse, 30,000 Canadian nurses will be eligible for retirement by 2008. In short, the Canadian medical system is in free-fall. It's about the same everywhere.

Speaking of doctors, Delthia Ricks recently wrote in Newsday, Thanks to Eugene Fox for this article.

"Every year, at one of the largest meetings of physicians who specialize in the treatment of cancer, doctors can be seen puffing cigarettes during breaks. While [this] may strike many as shocking, it is only a snapshot of a broader picture involving doctors and health issues. Doctors, as reluctant as they are to admit it, suffer from the same bad habits and serious health concerns as everyone else. The difference between physicians and the populations they serve is that it may take them longer to acknowledge something is amiss."

Most physicians scoff at the suggestion that nutrition can do much to bring about wellness. Imagine where that attitude could land them in a few years!

But thousands of other medical professionals do see the value of nutrition, including dietary supplements. This has transformed their own health and that of their families. Their practices are becoming like wellness centers.

Pioneer nutritional researcher Dr. Roger J. Williams (1893 - 1988) showed the way. He summed up his life's work thus: "The human body heals itself, and nutrition provides the resources to accomplish the task."

Wellness through good nutrition has caught on with the general public. Over half of the United States population are using nutritional supplements. But the current allopathic medical system is still in control. Not surprisingly, every disease is increasing rampantly. And as mentioned, the system is economically unsustainable. Major change must come, and it will. "We, the people" will see to that.

Science-based nutritional supplementation is already heralding change. There are already hundreds of thousands of people who rarely need to see a doctor, thus saving millions of dollars.

This is happening without advertising. Ordinary people are making it happen. They get excellent results and then share what they know with others. This is causing the wellness revolution.

It's an entrepreneur's dream come true! Wellness is predicted to become a one trillion (one thousand billion!) dollar industry in a few years. Leading economist Paul Zane Pilzer put it this way: "Everyone wants better health. Everyone wants to live longer. Everyone wants to look younger and enjoy life more as they age." That means the potential market for wellness is . . . everyone! Pilzer further predicts that in the next ten years this will produce ten million new millionaires!

You can read what else Pilzer has to say in his article, Perfect Storm of Opportunity.

Wellness, combined with home based network marketing truly is an entrepreneur's dream come true. But it's for everyone who can see the future before it actually arrives.

I spent most of my life in financial poverty. At 62, I was introduced to the wellness industry and network marketing. Ten years later, my wife and I have over 12,000 people in our business. It has an asset value (the value to us) of three million dollars -- and continues to grow. Pretty good for ten years' work! Now I work when it fits in with our comfortable retirement.

The wellness revolution has only just begun. The next few years will be exciting. We have many keen leaders who are building very successful wellness / network marketing / home-based businesses within ours. They will no doubt produce many millionaires while they themselves become very wealthy. Everyone succeeds by helping others.
