Did you know the average American household spends over $10,000 on medical expenses each year? As you can imagine, this is a huge financial burden for many. Therefore, finding ways to only pay a fraction of the cost is essential. A lot of people are resorting to online crowdfunding campaigns, like Plumfund, and are relying on people’s generosity and kindness in their attempt to pay the amounting medical bills.

Most people feel like they have zero control over their health, but that’s simply not the case. You have more power than you believe, and if you really want to avoid spending time and money in the doctor’s office, please take the following advice.


1. Put The Ice Cream And Potato Chips Down Now!

Not only do American households spend over $10,000 per year on medical expenses, we are also in the middle of an obesity epidemic and more than 75% of American adults are either overweight or obese. Though this is a shocking number, many people still ignore it and continue leading unhealthy lives.

Do you want to get healthy and avoid the doctor? Do you want to lower or stop taking your high blood pressure medication or stop taking your insulin injections? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the first thing you need to do is stop eating junk food!

You already know the ice cream and potato chips are slowly but surely putting you in an early grave. As a result, you suffer from sugar hangovers, acid reflux, and you feel tired and sluggish all the time. Life doesn’t have to be this way. Just stop putting so much processed, unhealthy food in your body.
Remember, junk food comes in many shapes and sizes. If it’s processed, it’s probably junk food even if it may seem like a healthy snack. Sooner rather than later you’ll simultaneously improve your health, eliminate doctor visits and subsequently save money.

2. Add Healthy Fruits And Vegetables To Your Diet

Taking the junk food out of your diet is only half the battle. Start loading up on vegetables as soon as possible. We’re not trying to take your meat and dairy away from you, not completely, but you need to cut down on it as well and eat more fruits and veggies to really get your body back into shape.

3. Make Walking A Regular Part Of Your Day

Finally, many of us spend a lot of time sitting in a chair staring at a screen for 8 to 10 hours a day at work. Then we get home and exercise is the last thing many of us want to do. So we sit on our couch, turn on the TV, and settle in for the night.

Walking is something you should do every day. You don’t have to walk far, but you need to do it consistently. Start out by only walking five minutes a day. Then add more time whenever you can. You’ll feel better; extend your life, cut down on your medical ailments and even improve the quality of your life.
