Theresa Callard-Moore of the BridgeIT Movement discusses shifting healthcare through wellness with Rajeev Mudumba of the Plan B Success Podcast.
ARE YOU READY TO PUT YOUR HEALTH BACK IN YOUR HANDS?
What is the BridgeIT Movement?
The BridgeIT Movement is the bridge between holistic health and traditional insurance in order to “Put Your Health in Your Hands”. It starts with the individual using holistic and traditional methods to keep yourself and your family healthy. The Movement ends with an insurance company owned by the consumers that focuses on wellness and prevention using Integrative Medicine or Integrative Techniques (IT).
Even before all of the happenings of 2020, our nation has been in a major health care crisis, with rising healthcare cost and reduced outcomes and life expectancy. U.S. health care spending grew 4.6 percent in 2018, reaching $4.1 trillion or $11,172 per person. But the United States is rated 37th compared to other countries. In other words, we have spent trillions and we are sicker than ever. The CDC gives us the Top 10 Chronic Diseases in America.
We believe there is a better way by using holistic health and traditional health to reduce costs and improve outcomes. We want to change things and put healthcare back into your hands. This website is designed to reach out and begin to connect the consumers, holistic providers, and community organizations that want to see a change in healthcare too.
Are you a consumer of Integrative Medicine? We have gotten used to the idea that our healthcare decisions are made by our employers and insurance companies. Part of the BridgeIT Movement is to increase awareness for the consumers and hear your concerns. Please take a minute to fill out this survey and tell us what you think. Until we can build a community wellness health plan, we wanted to mobilize your concerns, which is why we started Consumers4Wellness.org.
For the Holistic Practitioners, we want to promote you on our social media sites and share your skills and information as public education on ways to stay healthy. Are we on the right track?

How Do You BridgeIT?
Let’s use a “BridgetIT” example. If you have a sinus headache, you may resort to using over the counter nose spray and a neti pot. These techniques are known as “traditional” and/or “holistic.” You may go to the doctor to see if you have a diagnosis of a sinus infection. If so, you may use antibiotics to knock it down so that you can keep going with your life. But you’ll always follow it up with immune-boosting supplements, continue the neti pot, essential oils, and probiotics.
Get it? BridgeIT! You are BridgeIT!
