Welcome! and Thank you for listening.
Do you go to your doctor to hear what makes you happy or to hear the truth about your state of health? Would you like to go back to the old days when a physician might not tell you the truth about your prognosis because he didn't think you could understand or handle it?
Medicine went through a transition not all that long ago to emphasize the patients right to know and make informed decisions. It is when consent forms started to be a part of medical practice in the late 1980s. However, we are having a shift in healthcare to more of a popularity contest. Feel good medicine. Take this pill and you will be ok, or feel better, or feel nothing. Let's put candy in the waiting room to reward you for coming to check on the state of your health decline. Now there is even a push to offer ice cream as a means to get people to have a colonoscopy!!!
Before you sign on to the ice cream truck mobile colonoscopy unit, let me bring you back to reality. There is not a pill or procedure that eliminates lifestyle diseases. Health starts and stops at the dinner table. You health decline does not take breaks for ice cream nites, or weeks without exercise. And it certainly does not take breaks for cheesecake after gastric bypass or ice cream preps for colonoscopies.
We want to help people achieve optimal health and wellness. It involves a hard look at ones present state of health and education to see that the shiny boxes and billboards are products with the financial health of the manufacture or salesperson first.
