I wanted to talk with you about our current healthcare system, bust some myths, and a new way of thinking about it.
Some recent stats show that there’s a high level of chronic illness in our healthcare system, and it needs to be addressed.
- 50% of the US population have 1 chronic illness.
- 25% of the US population have at least 2 chronic illnesses.
- 86% of the $3.2 trillion dollars of healthcare costs in the US are spent on chronic diseases.
- In the US, we’re 5% of the world’s population, yet consume 70% of the drugs produced in the world.
By conventional thinking we should be one of the healthiest countries on earth. But, we aren’t. We rank 37th by the World Health Organization, and some stats show we rank in the 50’s, only slightly above 3rd world countries.

Our healthcare system is NOT geared around achieving optimal health, so it’s YOU who needs to take control of your health.
Health is an evolving state and we should always be moving towards optimal health in all aspects of our life.
One quick example: Those who have digestive or gut issues…
If there’s an issue there, we know that’s where all disease starts. One of the most common symptoms we see is heartburn or acid reflux. When someone has heartburn, what do they do? They usually self medicate with some antacids or get a prescription for a heavy duty medication. The problem with this is that heartburn is caused by too little acid being produced by our body. The body is working too hard to try and break down the foods. Your food ends up sitting there, and ferments, and gives off its own acids and gases, and causes what we call “heartburn”. What needs to happen is that we need to give the body what it needs in order to produce the proper acids to break down the food.
While conventional medicine has great value and is necessary for saving lives, in particular with emergencies, when it comes to chronic disease or achieving optimal wellness we need to look at the underlying root causes of the disease instead.
This is what we do. We work with you in an individualized manner to address the root causes, through addressing lifestyle factors, diet, sleep, and specific lab testing done at home. We’re then able to see how all the bodily systems are working individually and how they’re working with one another. This is how we get you to heal your body and obtain optimal health.
