Some Ways You Can Reduce Your Healthcare Footprint

We all want to save some money these days, and this morning's Charlotte Observer details a number of ways to save money on health care. Most of these are common sense suggestions, and yet good reminders. One of the best ways I have saved money is by using bioidentical hormones, in figuring out the total financial cost (never mind all the long term savings in benefits to my health and well being)---my insurance company saves over $500 PER MONTH in cost, and I save over $100 per month in co-pays by my being off so many medications. Something to think about if you are determined that unless your insurance pays full shot for everything, you don't want to be bothered checking out bioidentical hormones.

  1. I found an interesting program in Nicaragua where you can volunteer and at the same time have some vacation time. This is not a typical international Volunteer program. This clinic is top-one in terms of the hygiene and the quality of the medical team. They do need some help for operational expenses http://www.nicaclinic.org/donations/why-help-is-needed.php
