Our current health care system is failing us. Our reactive response to chronic disease is merely a Band-Aid solution to a huge, and ever-growing problem. By acting so far down-stream we have found ourselves buckling with the heavy burden of chronic disease.
Unfortunately, doctors are taught very little at medical school about diet and lifestyle interventions so these very effective first line treatments are often skipped or poorly implemented.
Our society and environment are constantly working against us and we get how hard it can be to kick old-engrained habits.
