Can you be too healthy? by Dr. Jay LaGuardia

According to Medi-Share, YES!!

Recently I posted on Facebook a story that received massive attention. The reason is because it affects every man, woman and child. Allow me to share my experience.

I recently went online to submit my annual wellness application to Medi-Share. It was one of the reasons I selected them as our health plan a few years ago. They incentivize people who choose to live a healthy lifestyle.

Now mind you, my wife Pam and I have qualified the previous two years.

Based on the health goals I set for myself this year, I have really cleaned up my diet more than ever which resulted in becoming leaner and stronger than ever before. So lets fast-forward…I completed their form and I was denied. These are my stats… I have a Body Percent Fat of 8.4%, Blood Pressure of 108/66 and I workout everyday and have what most would consider a super clean diet. Not to mention regular chiropractic care and I work on my PMA daily. And for those who don’t know, I am a licensed Chiropractor for 28 yrs. and I am board certified in wellness and nutrition.

So I called Medi-Share to question their decision and they informed me I am too lean! What?! They said my BPF for my age (54) should be between 11-25%. I asked what science supports this bull****? I inquired who is setting these wellness standards and I asked them to provide me a copy of the science that supports this nonsense. I said I would be willing to provide them with the most recent research that is counter to their position. Surprisingly, they declined!

This is the absurdity that exists in todays so called healthcare system. The myths and junk science in today’s health marketplace is astounding, which enslaves people to a life of sickness and disease. They perpetuate the same outdated belief systems and behaviors that are robbing people from expressing their true human potential. These outdated beliefs continues to allow Big Pharma and the food industry to profit massively at the expense of record high rates of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other lifestyle diseases.

I have dedicated more than 30 years of my life to the study and the practical application of how to live a healthy lifestyle. Let me let you in on a little secret… your health is based on your lifestyle and choices, not your genes. How we choose to live will cause our genes to either express sickness or health. According to a study from the AMA, 94% of all diseases are lifestyle related.

Do not be fooled by a “sick care” system that has little incentive in your well-being. Empower yourself by getting informed and educating yourself, while questioning everything. Please understand only you are responsible for your health, NOT your doctor or your “sick care” insurance company.

Don’t except the crap that is being peddled and together we can disrupt a failed system and force the change that is necessary. Never relent. Never let them silence you. Never stop fighting!

Live inspired, be abundant, and fulfill your destiny,
