Meditalk: Re-Building Health from the Ground Up

 Please join us next Monday, Sept 26th, for MediTalk. Sean Croxton, the founder of Underground Wellness will be our special guest. Croxton has a passion for revolutionizing the way the way we think about health. Croxton graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelors in Kinesiology, emphasising health, nutrition, and fitness, then became a certified personal trainer. After witnessing the failures of the healthcare system as his clients gained more weight and got sicker, he made it his mission to fix the the root of the problem. He now promotes the idea of self-care and responsibility.

 Traditional medicine elects to mask symptoms by prescribing drugs to the patient. Croxton works with his client by:
a. Educating the client to understand the process of healing and how stressors break down the body.
b. Building health from the ground up
c. Balancing the body by addressing the 5 Pillars of Health: Diet, Hormones, Digestion, Detoxification, and Immunity

You can join Monday’s MediTalk by clicking here.  Call (714) 888-7416 to speak with the host.

 



At MediBid, we restore market forces to medical care. Doctors get to set their own rates based on their training, experience, and outcomes, and patients get to shop for medical care across state lines and international borders. Many times with MediBid, you will find procedures that are more effective than procedures allowed, or covered by health plans. Transparency and competition are the only way to achieve reasonable costs. Many of our employer clients offering group health insurance through MediBid save $5,000 per employee per year. Those are substantial savings. Patients are saving an average of 48% vs. insurance discounted rates, or 80% vs. retail. Contact us for more information.
