Health insurance no's look bonkers, sure it's possible to spend that much if you try.

Depending on your passport living in ZG/SG might be a better bet.
I think you mean SZ not SG

Living in SZ will bring that tax down massively and also decrease your rental expenses at a cost of living 35 minutes from Zurich. ZG City will decrease the tax, but not the rental costs, but is more of a town than living anywhere in SZ.

Depending on your industry there are also tax free agreements with the authorities for t&e or representation allowances. For example I get CHF 14.4k a year tax free (but can’t make expense claims under CHF 50). This is standard at banks at my level of seniority.

Also, pension contributions are ultimately your money. If you pay 3% in Asia and 5% in Switzerland, you should equalise the post tax amount from your take home pay on both sides.
