Who You Gonna Call When You've Got Health Issues? Ghostbusters?

Few Americans have a proven and valued health mentor, a health guru, a real doctor. And face it, few Americans have enough experience to be their own guide in the frontiers of health and disease.

Most of us focus on health only when we have lost it.

Few Americans actively practice health maintenance, and even fewer study health.

When illness does "strike" we are apt to seek symptom relief. Unfortunately, chances are that our healthcare practitioner will be interested in the same thing we are. There will probably be no discussion of the causes of the illness, nor the lifestyle factors that could predictably restore and maintain health.

Right now American health is on life support, but if we are going to be the change we would like to see in the world, here is what we might do:
1) begin gently to study health. You could start reading Dr. Gundry's Diet Evolution,
2) start practicing basic health; you know, vegetables, walking, forgiveness,
3) find yourself a great health mentor; a example would be Mark Hyman, MD,

Who you gonna call now?
