Prevention and Wellness in Western Medicine


Do you find value in taking a proactive approach to your health? I have always approached my own health from a preventative perspective, and strive to lead my clients in the same positive direction, with a focus on maintaining good health.


With this being said, what happens if we as a country are not educated on what health maintenance looks like? The following article from Drs. Stephen Devries and Andrew Weil address that very question and make a stand for putting health promotion and disease prevention back into the hands of our nation's doctors.


An except from Lifestyle Counseling: A Missed Opportunity:


The Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act was actually the second important decision during the last week in June regarding health care in the United States. A statement issued two days earlier by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), barely noticed by the press, had seismic implications for public health. This group, charged by Congress to analyze preventive services, published its assessment of the value of counseling patients on healthful diet and exercise.


And its official recommendation for our nation's army of primary care providers? To paraphrase: Don't waste your time, at least not on everyone. Or, in more formal language, "Clinicians may choose to selectively counsel patients rather than incorporate counseling into the care of all adults in the general population." As integrative physicians, we are focused on prevention. We also emphasize gentle, inexpensive, effective lifestyle therapies -- either primarily, or in a supporting role -- for existing conditions. Consequently, we consider this a colossal lost opportunity.
