The Importance of Choice
It is commonly said that our greatest asset is our health. Indeed, if we have all the assets or success in the world, but do not have health, then it is very difficult to enjoy.
Alongside health, comes health-care. Health-care is a fundamental aspect of Australian society. There are many aspects to health-care which the Australian public utilises on a daily basis:
- Conventional Medicine (medical procedures, GPs, hospital services and prescribed medications), which performs miracles on a daily basis addressing emergencies and symptoms
- Complementary Medicine, which treats the body or person holistically, treating lifestyle, diet and symptoms
- Complementary to Medicine, which works side by side with conventional medicine, providing support
Many Australians managing chronic disease utilise Complementary Medicine and Complementary to Medicine therapies. In fact, there are approximately 69 million Complementary Medicine appointments with practitioners annually.*
The Australian public chooses between the various forms of health-care daily. It is a fundamental right of people to determine their own health-care.
Over the coming weeks, we will look in more detail at health-care and the importance of choice.
