I chose the above cartoon to be on the front of my new clinic’s business card for a specific reason. To be clearer I would add the word “medicine” after mainstream. Why do I advocate to never go with mainstream medicine? Because it truly is a dreadful place.
Mainstream medicine is nothing more than sick-care medicine. Sick-care medicine has no interest in keeping you...
Who would you like to partner with for your health—a sick-care doctor or a well-care doctor?
A sick-care doctor acts like God (or perhaps just a dictator) and expects you to be subservient to him and obey his every command.
A well-care doctor acts like a teacher and counselor, treats you as a partner and expects you to carefully weigh their counsel and make your own...
