You have a right to good health care -- Exposing the myths of American health care -- Moving to the future while learning from the past -- Reversing the toxic trends -- Doctors of the future -- Medicine of the future -- The new American health care -- Disease prevention : the sustainable solution -- Health promotion : the critical component -- What the future will look like.
The World Health Organization recently rated America thirty-seventh in health outcomes, on par with Serbia. Tackling head-on the three major myths of American medicine, Dr. Weil shows how medical schools fail to give future doctors the education they need to care for patients, how insurance companies have destroyed our opportunity to get excellent care, and how pharmaceutical companies have come to rule our lives. The solution involves nothing less than the creation of a completely new culture of health and medicine in this country.--From publisher description.
