Why Our Health Matters: A Vision of Medicine That Can Transform Our FutureWhy Our Health Matters shows what has gone wrong with the American way of health to create the crisis in which our country is embroiled. Dr. Weil goes to the root of the problem, showing how medical schools fail to give future doctors the best education to care for patients, how insurance companies have destroyed our opportunity to get excellent care, and how pharmaceutical companies have come to rule our lives. He offers a realistic vision of how we can achieve optimum health through a heightened sense of personal responsibility and a new model of medicine.
Optimum Health: Maximizing the Body's Own Healing SystemsHealth is an intrinsic quality of resilience and balance that protects us from harm as we move through life. If you are healthy, you can interact with germs and not get infections, with allergens and not have allergic reactions, with toxins and not suffer damage. To protect and optimize health, you must attend to all lifestyle factors that affect it: diet, physical activity, stress, rest and sleep, emotions, as well as nonphysical (spiritual) influences.
