Growing Health Issues:

The 21st century has brought many new and innovative things into our world… and yet, society continues to pay a toll. Today, ANXIETY disorders impact nearly 40 million adults in the United States, becoming the most common mental health issue Americans face. Only a third ever receive treatment. STRESS levels are also increasing and 51% of the population report that their primary concerns are for health-related needs. CHRONIC PAIN sufferers number over 100 million people… more than diabetes, health disease, and cancer combined. This is now the number one cause of long-term disability in the country! And perhaps the most devastating impact of all has been the growing OPIOID epidemic. Every day, 130 people die from an overdose, an increase of 30-50% in the last three years alone… leaving behind a trail of two million addicts at a staggering annual cost of $78 billion. It’s time to Get Your Life Back!
