Healthcare is no longer just a public issue; for millions of Americans it is now a crisis on their own doorstep. The cost of medical care today is a leading cause of personal bankruptcy. Although policy makers have weighed in on all sides, in this book, best-selling author Andrew Weil, M.D., identifies the root of the problem. He shows us exactly how we have become embroiled in the present situation and provides a solution that will not only make healthcare affordable, but will also put each one of us on the road to optimum health.
Dr. Weil states that we have a right to good healthcare that is effective, accessible, and affordable. Many Americans would be surprised to know that our national health is far from the best in the world, even though we spend more money on it than any other country. The World Health Organization recently rated America 37th in health outcomes, on par with Serbia.
