National Wise Health Consumer

National Wise Health Consumer

February is National Wise Health Consumer Month. This month is set aside to promote responsible lifestyles and intelligent decision making on health considerations, and is sponsored by the American Institute of Preventive Medicine. Making the best choices helps to make us feel better, reduce our costs for health care, and protect ourselves from disease, including the number one killer, heart disease. Here are some of the most important issues for you to think about.

Healthy lifestyle

Diet and exercise are two of the biggest factors that can affect your health. Taking care of yourself can add years of happiness to your life and reduce health care costs.

Routine screenings

Precautionary screenings can help in early diagnosis as well as prevention of disease. The older we get, the more we should avail ourselves of these frequently free services.

Choice of healthcare provider

We all have preferences and the best healthcare professional for one may not be the best for another. Proactive care in selecting your providers can help by boosting your confidence in their advice and counseling.  

Making the best healthy living choices can help prevent disease, reduce medical costs, diagnose problems earlier, and lead to a longer, happier life.

One of the wisest health-related choices is in the selection of a trusted insurance agent. The professionals at Steve Wilk Insurance Agency are ready to assist you with all of your health and insurance questions. Contact us today.
