This abstract is not so much a research project or a double-blind study but instead it is the application of adding natural medicines and other alternative practices to a large self-funded medical plan. After 19 years of implementing: Natural medicine, Prolozone, PRP, Stem cell therapy, Acupuncture, Opioid management, transparent surgical solutions and then measuring the outcomes, I wanted to know if these types of approaches could lower the medical trend and make employees healthier. The answer was a resounding, ???YES!??? In 1999, I completed a study proving that natural medicine added in the correct way could reduce medical costs, saving $10.40 for every dollar spent. Employees reported a 75% reduction in symptoms and their children experienced a 93% reduction. Prolozone, PRP and Stem cell therapy was highly successful in eliminating many surgeries and provided savings to both the medical plan and the patient. A simple injection versus a surgery. The pain management program was created when a friend???s son died from an opioid, muscle relaxant overdose. Usage under the program dropped by 40% with no reported adverse events. More important than the savings in dollars was the savings in human capital. A transparent medical model is the only way we should purchase medical care. How many of us would buy a home or car without knowing the cost? This solution saved over $400,000 in a 3.5-year period. Medical costs are rising twice as fast as inflation and if we do not fix this problem it will bankrupt us.
