Wellness: An Essential Part of Health Reform LegislationSeptember 23, 2008
The Board of Directors of the American Association for Health Freedom has voted to support a key resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives that would include “sustainable wellness programs that address the underlying causal factors of chronic disease” in an effort to re-engineer our healthcare reform. H.Con.Res. 406 has detailed language to change the debate in a system where up to 50% of the dollars that fund our current healthcare system come from government sources.
In addition, the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians has spearheaded this important resolution to sharpen the focus on the debate to reform U.S. healthcare. With every indication that the current system is not sustainable—and with its heavy toll on both business and individual pocketbooks—it is time to support wellness.
