Thomas Edison said, "The Doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
We are seeing medicine changing with the advent of life style or functional medicine and integrative clinics. There is a place for modern medicine but I believe if we work at wellness we can avoid the life style diseases.
This is a list of life style diseases:
heart disease, stroke, depression, obesity, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's, arthritis, atherosclerosis, asthma, cancer, chronic liver disease, COPD, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome.
You can prevent these diseases or work with your doctor and these wellness ideas to change your future health.
