Today I wanted to share a podcast episode with you that I truly believe could inspire you to make a few changes to your life, especially when it comes to health, well-being and mindfulness.
The title: The Perils and Promise of Medicine.
Aubrey Marcus, the podcast owner, interviews Dr. Craig Koniver who is a practicing MD and natural health expert. According Aubrey, Dr. Craig Koniver is one of the true thought leaders in human medicine. In this episode you will experience the dismantling of the prevalent model of medicine, talk about what really works, and explore the benefits of hormone replacement, the truth about cholesterol, and the conundrum of vaccines. (I will warn you ahead of time, a few vulgar words come up during the discussion.)
The episode is just over an hour in length. Dr. Koniver gets you to think outside the box about your healthcare and your life choices and he tries to convince you that just because your doctor gives you a prescription or a piece of advice does not necessarily mean that it is correct.
The truth is that many of us are misinformed, both as physicians and patients. And it is difficult to figure out what is right and what is wrong. I am convinced that Dr. Koniver cares.
I know that for me, if I can give one of my patients a “prescription” that does not include actual “medication” I will do it. Or if another wants to lengthen the time interval between vaccine administration for their children, I will discuss it with them and WE will together come up with a plan that makes sense. Just because a doctor learned something in medical school does not mean it is correct.
“Health is a holistic entity – not just prescription writing.”
There is NOT just one way to do any of this.
