Wellness clinic helps companies cut insurance premiums by 25 percent through nutrition, natural healing
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) A Kansas-based wellness clinic was surprised to learn recently that its employee insurance premiums would be decreasing by 25 percent next year, rather than increasing eight percent-or-so like they would be for most other companies, thanks to its integrative nutrition and wellness approach to employee health care. And the clinic is now offering the same opportunity to other companies that want to cut their insurance premiums while improving employee health naturally.
For nearly 40 years, the Riordan Clinic in Wichita, Kansas, has been helping improve people's lives through nutrition, vitamin and mineral supplementation, and natural therapies. Rather than merely treat symptoms with a one-size-fits-all approach like mainstream medicine does, the Riordan Clinic has been customizing wellness plans for individuals for decades -- and this approach has had the unexpected benefit of improving its employees' health as well, which has made providing health care perpetually less expensive.
Most companies are having an increasingly more difficult time, year after year, providing the same health insurance coverage to their employees without having to raise co-pay and deductible rates. As the general population grows increasingly more ill and disease-stricken, insurance rates naturally increase as well as it costs more to treat patients.
But when employees are offered real solutions to improve their health that have lasting effects, such as being tested for food sensitivity and allergies, or undergoing intravenous vitamin therapies to help alleviate or cure disease, they do not need to rely as heavily on the bloated, mainstream health care system. And this is precisely what the Riordan Clinic has done with its own employees, who will now cost the company 25 percent less to cover next year than they did last year.
If you have never heard of the Riordan Clinic before, be sure to check out their website to learn more about their approach to healthy living (http://www.riordanclinic.org).
The Riordan Clinic's approach has been so successful with its own employees that it is now offering the same system in a program known as "HealthMarkers" to companies everywhere that want to stem the tide of increasing health insurance rates, and improve their employee health, morale, and productivity at the same time.
