Don’t Treat Disease, Create Health:
Dr. Mark Hyman says that self-care is the key to being a healthy human today. In fact, he says, eighty percent of health conditions can be solved without a physician. The healthcare system puts band aids on the symptoms and doesn’t deal with the causes. “Don’t treat disease,” Hyman says. “Create health.” You can do this by taking care of yourself and solving your own health issues. You’re smarter than the healthcare system thinks you can be.

Young Forever: The Emerging Science of Longevity
Getting older is inevitable but aging is optional. Emerging longevity science holds the potential to avoid the diseases of aging – diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia, to extend both health span and lifespan. The hallmarks of aging underlie all age related diseases. Through the lens of the hallmarks of aging, network, system and functional medicine, a new diagnostic and clinical model provides a roadmap to address the root causes of aging and activate longevity pathways.
