we no longer feared and ignored our bodies?
pharmaceutical companies couldn’t promote their drugs to the public?
we all (including our systems) honored the interdependence of our mental and physical health and safety?
fifteen minutes with your doctor a few times per year doesn’t render him or her the best expert or authority on your health and wellness?
we trusted the wisdom of the body and stopped seeing it as something that needs to be fixed?
we don’t accept medications without informed consent and consideration of all the alternatives?
individualized medicine is good for public health?
the health of our internal and external environments are equally, if not more, important for our health than avoiding germs or pathogens?
if our bodies know how to heal themselves given the right conditions?
a diagnosis is not forever?
all vaccines are not good for all bodies?
we supported systems that make health promoting behaviors, childcare, complimentary and alternative medicine, whole foods, elder care, and mental health support more affordable and stopped supporting systems that make processed foods, pharmaceutical drugs, and alcohol the cheapest options?
we can be our own best experts?
