Don't be a statistic!

June 2, 2017





Why Put your health first?

Because the cost of disease and occurrence of chronic disease,  and multiple chronic disease states in individuals is ever increasing. The financial cost on the individual and her/his support people plus the social, emotional and mental cost is well documented. The below figures were published by Cancer Council NSW Australia.




These financial costs include:

• a reduction in income (for example, productivity and carer costs); and

• an increase in out-of-pocket expenses (for example, health costs and other

financial costs).

In terms of the financial costs faced by households, the most expensive cancers are

brain cancer ($149,400) and leukaemia ($103,900). Costs vary significantly by age

and sex, with costs after 65 falling to below $20,000 for even the most costly







Todays blog may well be outdated as research needs to catch up with today, but it is a stark reminder of the world we live in. The truth of the ever increasing value and need to invest in your wellness using the Health Model of  Disease prevention and changing the 6 fundamental markers, the Six Fundamental subclinical conditions common to all Chronic Disease.


And begs the questions...


Can you afford to not invest the time, money and effort today?

Are you already on the statistic path?

Which chronic disease symptoms are your family following?

What is you health worth to you?

Where will you be in 12 months, if you don't do something different today?


Further Statistics from the AIHW Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, had this to say about Chronic disease…..


  • ·         Media release: 1 in 5 Australians affected by multiple chronic diseases Information in this section was last updated in August 2015

  • ·         Chronic diseases have a range of potential impacts on a person's individual circumstances, including quality of life and broader social and economic effects. Chronic diseases are the leading causes of fatal burden of disease (the amount of life lost due to people dying early) in most age and sex groups and are the leading cause of illness, disability and death in Australia, accounting for 90% of all deaths in 2011 .


So what is chronic disease? The term chronic disease applies to a group of diseases that tend to be long lasting and have persistent effects.


Here is just a few of the many chronic diseases:


Diseases that you or those close to you may already experience. I haven’t touched on the many chronic gut conditions that are also so common today.


Cardiovascular disease (CVD)

CVD is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in Australia.

Over 1 in 5 Australians aged 18+ (22%) reported having CVD in 2011–12


Chronic kidney disease (CKD)

1 in 10 Australians aged 18+ (10%) had biomedical signs of CKD in 2011–12, with the majority of these showing early signs of the disease


Mental health

The most recent data shows that mental health conditions are highly prevalent in the population.

In 2007, 1 in 5 Australians aged 16–85 (20%) experienced a mental disorder in the previous 12 months [6].

In 2013–14, 1 in 7 children aged 4–17 (14%) were assessed as having mental health disorders in the previous 12 months.


Muscular skeletal

Over 1 in 4 Australians (28%) reported having arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions in 2011–12.


Here's the good news!!


You Now have the power to never be a health statistic!



Invest in the Health Model for disease prevention.
