We are at a point when we’re completely rethinking disease.
I think people just have to sort of basically realize that they’re going to face some difficulties in the first few days.
We have to take it upon ourselves, as a society, and not wait for somebody else to solve this for us.
I don't think that the solution to our health care crisis is going to come from the government, from policy, is going to come from the health care institutions. It’s got to come from each one of us, at a grassroots level taking back our health everywhere we live, everywhere we eat, work, live, play and pray.
Dr. Mark Hyman has laid out his vision for the future of medicine in a new book called The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! "Instead of treating disease," he argues, "we need to create health." This approach, that he calls "functional medicine," is designed to empower people to stop simply managing symptoms and to start treating the underlying causes of illnesses.
