Health Screenings Provide Health and Financial Benefits to Businesses

Corporate health screenings are a growing trend for companies seeking ways to reduce expenditures and provide a better quality of health for employees. By encouraging and maintaining the wellness of workers, the possibility of preventing potential health problems increases, which can result in lowering medicals costs associated with treating a condition in its advanced stage. Implementing preventive health care programs that include regular health screenings, immunizations and education is the first line of defense against health problems and rising health expenditures for businesses.Chronic illnesses and health conditions can decrease employee productivity and increase absenteeism and presenteeism, which greatly impacts a company’s bottom line. In fact, The Human Resources Policy Association puts the annual cost of reduced productivity for businesses between $87 and $127 billion. Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol and complications from obesity are listed by The Center for Disease Control as illnesses most commonly uncovered during health screenings. If undetected and left untreated, problems resulting from these conditions can disrupt every aspect of an employee’s life, including productivity in the workplace.”Preventive health care is an efficient and effective method of identifying and treating possible health conditions before they have the opportunity to develop or worsen,” says Dr. Jeffrey Greiff, founder of Flu Busters, a third-party provider of on-site preventive health care for businesses. “When a potential health condition is diagnosed in its early stages, it can be easily remedied and can prevent more serious conditions, resulting in a much healthier patient over time.”An Employer Health Benefits Survey found from 2002 to 2007, health insurance premiums for businesses increased approximately five times faster than inflation and four times faster than wage growth. As health insurance premiums continue to increase throughout the 2008 – 2009 fiscal year, analysts believe health care costs are a threat to the financial success of American businesses. Businesses are discovering the economic benefits of preventing and identifying employee health problems before they become serious ailments by offering annual on-site health screenings that improve and protect employees’ current and future state of health.A common deterrent for employees against receiving health screenings and immunization by a primary care physician is that the medical services can interrupt an employee’s busy day resulting in wasted time and energy. Third-party health care providers are gaining popularity in the business world due to their ability to provide on-site services to companies of any size. So, how does it work?Health screenings are available to companies of all sizes and can be provided on-site by a team of experienced health professionals. Prior to a health screening, information sheets are provided to make recommendations on what screenings would be most beneficial for an employee based on individual circumstances, such as, age, sex and family history. The actual screening takes only minutes and employees receive most screening results within minutes of the actual screening. A post-screening consultation with a registered health professional, as well as an online customized wellness program is offered to address any existing or potential health issues that may have been uncovered in the screening. From the initial screening to the post-screening consultation phase, the screening participants are actively assisted in developing solutions that will enable them to lead healthier, more productive and fulfilling lives.Even through economic hardships, businesses can still provide employees with quality health care by focusing on prevention. Routine health screenings and immunizations can identify and prevent illnesses, resulting in healthier employees, lower insurance premiums, increased productivity and decreased absenteeism. Businesses that establish a comprehensive wellness plan are investing in their employees, and ultimately, the company’s success.

Achieving Health Benefits From Cellular Nutrition

Cellular Nutrition is a combination of health building nutritional herbs, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that helps cleanse and detoxify the body. This helps the cells in the body become fully nourished. We can supply the body with supplements and food but if we do not repair the cells in our bodies that have been exposed to toxins and impurities, we are unable to absorb the nutrients that our body needs which will create malabsorption and nutritional deficiencies.When we think of health and nutrition very few people think of the cellular level, the cell is our source for energy, when our cells stop working properly we lose energy and keeps us from functioning at a higher level and sometimes not function at all.The importance of Cellular Nutrition is that it provides balanced nutritional ingredients to properly nourish the cells for optimal metabolism and growth repair. This will insure that the nutrients your body needs daily are absorbed and delivered throughout your body at a cellular level.There are many ways to benefit from Cellular Nutrition but my favorite is how it helps the digestive system.Cellular Nutrition can help and support the Villi that are located in the small intestine. They are microscopic finger like projections that line the inner wall of the small intestine. When food passes from the small intestine, nutrients are absorbed through the Villi. There are millions of Villi in the lower intestine. Cellular Nutrition will supply balanced nutrition to support the Villi at a cellular level which rebuilds and regenerates the Villi. If the Villi are impaired, they can shrink or flatten which will result in malabsorption, the nutrients will not effectively be absorbed by the Villi and not available to the rest of the body.Once the Villi begin to eliminate the toxins and absorb nutrients the body will begin to be energized and you will begin to feel and look better.What causes our cells to become unhealthy?Our bodies are continually being introduced to toxic substances, the body can fight off the impurities to a certain extent; However if the toxins that the body is exposed to exceeds its capacity to eliminate the toxins the cells will become encumbered and is susceptible to disease. It is important to provide the cells with sufficient balanced Cellular Nutrition so it can expel the free radicals from the impurities.Below is a list of some toxins and harmful substances that can enter the body:• Impurities in our water and air.
• Artificial color and preservatives in our food.
• Insecticide that has been sprayed on our foods.
• Genetically modified foods.
• Smoking tobacco.
• Excess sugar intake.
• Excess alcohol consumption.There is also one more very important reason for poor nutrition and that is our conventional methods of agriculture ignore the quality of the soil that our plants grow in. The nutrients depend on the quality of the soil in which food grows. Plants that we eat receive essential nutrients from microorganisms in the soil. The plant processes minerals from the soil through the plant. Most conventional farmers use artificial fertilizers which destroys the microorganisms. The more organic matter in the soil the more nutritious our food is.So, to feel healthy, you have to be healthy and to be healthy you need to have healthy cells. By supplying your cells with proper balance of Cellular Nutrition, your cells become more receptive allowing them to efficiently absorb and process nutrients.By Hollaye Vladimiroff
