Overview

You Can't Afford to Get Sick: Your Guide to Optimum Health and Health Care by Andrew Weil

With a two-week plan for optimum wellness, “America’s best-known doctor” (The New York Times) shows you what you need to know to be in the best health and have the best care.

The crisis in American health has hit home in very personal ways. Every thirty seconds someone in this country files for bankruptcy in the aftermath of a serious health problem. And although America spends more on health care than any other country, the World Health Organization recently ranked our health outcomes lowest among the developed nations. Now, in this visionary New York Times bestseller, world-renowned pioneer in the field of integrative medicine Andrew Weil, MD, busts the myths underpinning our health-care system and provides cogent strategies for change as well as specific prescriptive information explaining how—beginning with his two-week jumpstart plan for optimum wellness—to get and maintain good health.

Once again, Dr. Weil has put the honest truth of our lives in our hands. I loved this book as I have loved all his others. Educational, thought- provoking, mind boggling to say the least. A real eye opener from the pioneer of integrative medicine himself. And I am not just saying this cause I met him last month either. He is as genuine in person as he seems in his words. Honestly, no one can afford to miss out on this book.
