A recent government study found that more than 40 percent of every men, women and children in America is on at least one prescription. We are the most medicated society in the world and many people, including doctors, are growing frustrated with the insurance process in this country.
Dr. Mark Hyman says his outrage at the system comes from his own experiences as a patient. When he was a young doctor, just getting ready to start his family medicine practice, Dr. Hyman ruptured a disc and found himself partially paralyzed. He says he was shuffled from doctor to doctor and ended up with three different physicians treating him.
His frustration with the system -- which he believes is set up to treat disease, not to encourage health -- ed him to seek new ways of helping his own patients by combining the best in conventional and alternative medicines.
His book, “Ultraprevention: The Six-Week Plan That Will Make You Healthy for Life,” is a New York Times bestseller and it’s full of useful tips to help you improve your life and boost your longevity – the natural way. Dr. Hyman says they’ve discovered a Miracle Grow for the brain and it’s something so simple – exercise.
Find out the small steps you can take that will pay off in a big way and hear why Dr. Hyman thinks we will see a return of “good medicine” to this country.
