Americans today are facing an epidemic of chronic illness. In 1900, cancer and heart disease accounted for 18 percent of all deaths. Today, that figure’s jumped to 63 percent.
In fact, chronic illness is now the biggest single driver of medical costs. To quote an article from Statnews.com, “U.S. health care costs for chronic diseases totaled $1.1 trillion in 2016. When lost economic productivity is included, the total economic impact was $3.7 trillion.”
Furthermore, compared with other developed nations, the U.S. has ranked poorly on cost and outcomes. This is predominantly because of our current healthcare systems inability to effectively manage chronic disease. Treating symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs have proven inadequate. Chronic diseases are ongoing, currently considered incurable illnesses or conditions by traditional medicine. The top 10 in order of prevalence are hypertension, Alzheimer’s and other dementias, heart disease, depression, arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, COPD, cancer and stroke. At Health and Wellness of Carmel we believe that these diseases are most often preventable, and frequently can be put in remission through early detection, improved diet, exercise, and holistic treatment therapy.
To educate the public and practitioners that suffering from chronic disease is a choice. The root cause of nearly every disease can be determined and effectively treated. Less than 1% of the office visits in America today involves seeing a holistic practitioner. Our goal is that number will reach 18% by the year 2025.
Our team will work in partnership with holistic and traditional health care providers from around the world to find the most cost-effective measures to eliminate chronic disease. We will keep up with the latest research in both holistic and traditional health care. Our training includes our association with the Institute of Functional Medicine, AAFP, A4M, ACIM, ACAM, ILADS and Moss Reports.
What People Say About HWOFC
I have never been so impressed with the knowledge, efficiency, and positive attitude of every team member I encountered at Health and Wellness of Carmel. I traveled from Wisconsin for a consult with Dr Fetters about my asthma as I was seeking something other than another prescription that didn’t work. I received a thorough evaluation in one day of my health, food sensitivity testing, bloodwork, colon cancer testing, pulmonary function testing, a weight management plan, & dietician guidance. A great, hopeful, ray of sunshine at the end of a long road of many traditional medicine specialists giving me 10 minutes and never fixing the problem. An expensive day but worth every penny!
Dr. Fetters has an uncanny way of connecting with his patients. I’m new to his care, and there was (and continues to be) a bond from the start. He’s a true professional who has a keen (and correct) view of the world. He doesn’t lose his scientific perspective, and weaves throughout the holistic view that helps us live life the best (and healthiest) we can in this imperfect world. I truly appreciate him
