The failings of our current healthcare system are not news, but few grasp the extent to which modern medicine is losing its self-proclaimed wars on deadly diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. By its very nature, today’s socalled healthcare system has disempowered America, lulling us into believing that modern medicine has all the answers, and that it is based on science-neither of which is true. While medicine has made great strides with lifesaving events such as heart, liver and other transplants, the majority of medical practices have fallen under the control of Wall Street and Big Pharma. Together they are responsible for the sick-care system that cares little about you until you fall ill, at which time you become a commodity-an article of trade for their costly blend of drugs, surgery, and hospitalization.
Fortunately, there is a new ﬁeld emerging, and it is coming from the most surprising place-neuroscience research. This research into brain function and it’s relationship to health and disease sheds new light on how the body heals itself, and it’s restoring hope for thousands of people facing serious and debilitating diseases. Within these pages you will learn why the state of your nervous system determines the health of your entire body and precisely what you can do to sustain a healthy nervous system for life.
