Did you know that an estimated one-third to one-half of the$2.2 trillion Americans spend annually on health care is spent on unnecessary tests, treatments and doctor visits? What happens while people are undergoing these tests and procedures is that the body frequently heals itself.
In other words, it is possible that Americans could save an estimated $700 billion by doing nothing. Of course, if you are sick you don't want to delay treatment because the situation might grow worse; but for many ailments — especially back problems and colds — time is the best remedy.
Such a solution might not make you feel better immediately but it could save you a lot of money provided you are willing to unlearn your bias for action.
