The Best of All Worlds : A Family Doctor's Path to Integrative Medicine
We need a more proactive, more balanced and integrated approach to health and wellness. The Best of All Worlds shines a harsh light in its critique of the current healthsystem in America. Mainstream allopathic medicine tends to be reactive and superficial with an excessive reliance on pharmaceuticals. More often, we wait until a person is ill only to then decide on which drug to use for every symptom and condition. The alternative health practitioners are a wild west show of mavericks, geniuses and charlatans. Science vs. religion. East vs. West. We have come apart and need to pull systems back together toward the whole. An optimal approach would be more proactive with a focus on individualized care that incorporated all aspects of the person's mind, body and spirit. The Best of All Worlds provides balanced information on the majority of acute and chronic medical conditions. Case studies are used to personalize the material. Many people with a wide variety of health problems see physician after physician only to remain lost in the system. This book is a guide for that person, helping them find effective alternative approaches. The Best of All Worlds covers many complex and controversial issues including autism, immunizations, yeast overgrowth, chronic Lyme disease, genetic testing and others. It explores many of the underlying reasons why so many people are chronically ill. One of the goals of the book is to help the reader find some of the best supplement options covering different vitamins, minerals, herbs, probiotics and others. There are a wide variety of options for health maintenance and prevention within and beyond the medical establishment. We would do well to find the best of them.
