Evidence-based Chronic Disease Solutions for Obesity, Diabetes, Pain, Anxiety, Depression, Auto-Immune

 

There are no coincidences, right?

It's interesting that just when the non-profit 2021 Lifestyle Medicine Summit - a free global live streaming event - is being launched, I've also noticed an increase in news coverage about the potential benefits of Lifestyle Medicine, not just for our individual health, but for healthcare in general.

Many of us feel frustrated and want evidence-based chronic disease solutions.

Lifestyle Medicine is a scientific approach to preventing and treating chronic illness by utilizing comprehensive lifestyle interventions such as nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction and social support.

In the upcoming Lifestyle Medicine Summit 50 of the world's top experts in treating root-cause(s) like Dean Ornish MD, Bruce Lipton Ph.D., David Katz MD, Prof. Ainhoa De Federico, Neal Barnard MD, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, Johannes R. Fissinger, Dr. T. Colin Campbell Ph.D., Dr. Jessica Drummond, Bernie Siegel MD, Dawson Church Ph.D. (and myself!) will share how it...

One of the things we are seeing in the Western healthcare system right now, all around the world, is a crumbling of the old to make way for the new.
 
When things 'break down' it can feel bad, but at some point it is actually a necessary part of change, in order for something newer and better to be built.

We also know that over 80% of today’s healthcare costs are connected to non-communicable (chronic) lifestyle diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, pain, Alzheimer’s and other auto-immune disorders.

Estimated Savings

Research studies have shown the reduction of bypass surgery and stents can save $30,000 per patient in the first year alone, cutting healthcare costs by 50% in the first year.

It's safe to estimate that healthcare cost savings of 2-10% annually are absolutely possible.

WOW, that's a whopping $73-365 BILLION in HEALTHCARE COST SAVINGS!

This is how we can create a win-win-win situation, creating new high paying and fulfilling...
