Is Your Debt Making You Sick?

There is an epidemic plaguing many. It’s called debt stress.

Credit card companies and retail outlets make it easier than ever to obtain credit on demand. They’re perfectly agreeable to generous credit limits. They’re anxious to exploit your need for instant gratification. But all this “generosity” comes with a cost. Count on exorbitant interest rates and minimum payments that barely put a dent in the amount you owe.

There are 30% of us who don’t have a credit card. Those who do, have almost four of them. Each with an average interest rate of 17%. Paying only the minimum payment means it would take years to pay each card off. And all of this debt is causing a lot of stress and health-related concerns for plenty of people.

Mental disorders, migraines, heart disease, high blood pressure, weight gain/loss, insomnia – these are just a few of the by-products of debt stress. For some, spending is an addiction, just like alcohol, drugs or gambling, and it needs to be treated in much the same way.

What can you do about your overwhelming and out-of-control debt? Here are some suggestions to help you regain control of your debt and your health:

  • Seek the advice and guidance of a reputable credit counselor.
  • Contact your creditors. Many will work with you to set up financially feasible payment schedules.
  • Reduce spending and stop incurring new debt.
  • Use a debit card instead of a credit card.
  • Use money in a savings account that is earning minimal interest, to pay down any high-interest credit cards.
  • Remove credit cards from your purse or wallet
  • Pick your smallest debt and pay it off, moving on to the next smallest debt.

It’s possible, with determination and discipline, to regain your credit and your personal health. It starts with recognizing that you have a problem and moving on from there to help yourself.

  • I have been suffering with neck and back pain and lack of mobility since my early teens and I am now 27, but I have progressively had a harder time coping with it since I started working in Healthcare in 2019. It had gotten to the point where all I could think about was finding a different job throughout my shift because I wasn't sure how much longer I could handle it. I decided to give Chiropractic Medicine a try and I am so thankful I did! I have been going to Ancaster Family Chiropractic since July 2021 and I have experienced a significant improvement with reduced severity and frequency of pain, better range of motion in my neck and back, and I rarely have to take OTC pain medication which is something I was relying on daily beforehand. I am not even halfway through my treatment plan and I can't wait to continue experiencing improvement in my quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Neil, Sue and Deb!

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.
