In 2016 alone, over 4 billion retail prescriptions were filled at the pharmacy. Despite this, America has spent more money for health care than any other country. CDC quotes “75% of which was for chronic conditions”. Almost half of all American adults had at least 1 chronic condition in 2005. For example, 1 in 5 adults have arthritis and it is the most common cause of disability. Why do we have cancer, chronic fatigue, diabetes, heart disease, hives, autoimmune disease etc? Jacoby from the WHO says, “Chronic conditions are really, really stealing lives”. Leah Sottile in the Health section of The Atlantic in Dec 2013, wrote “Living Sick and Dying Young in Rich America: chronic illness is the new first-world problem”. What are we missing??

This year’s seminar focuses on the whole body approach. Evidence shows that when we treat each disease in isolation, we miss the vital point that the whole body is affected.  Often this treatment inadvertently damages other body parts as collateral damage.  However, if we treat the whole organism we can reverse disease without damaging other organs and prolong life by reversing the aging process.

“Knowledge is Power.” Do not miss this very informative seminar to help improve our health and that of the community. Please attend with friends, family and children.
