Health Care Crisis Looms For Baby Boomers: Fundamental Changes Needed to Avert Crisis.

'Doctor Wild About Health and Healing' audio programs and blog explore integration of natural therapies that promote health, and that may minimize baby boomers' burden on health care.

    /24-7PressRelease/ - NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FL, June 09, 2008 - According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report Retooling for Aging America, the looming health care crisis results from rapidly increasing numbers of aging baby boomers with complex diseases, but insufficient resources to care for this large population of people born between 1946 and 1964. Drugs generally only suppress symptoms, not promote health. It's time to implement safe, effective natural therapies that promote health and healing. Doctor Wild About Health and Healing and Dr. William Campbell Douglass MD, MS want to help.

The FDA essentially approves of only patentable medicines ('designer drugs,' pharmaceuticals). Natural therapies cannot be patented. Therefore many promising natural approaches are left 'orphaned' not because they are ineffective or dangerous, but because they are not patentable and will never get FDA approval. This situation militates against research, manufacturing, marketing and integration of thousands of safe, effective and inexpensive health-promoting natural therapies into clinical practice guidelines, which could help prevent or lessen the impact of the health care crisis.

While policy makers explore various options to help solve the impending crisis, such as health savings accounts and tax relief for private insurance companies and citizens, we must also aggressively explore and integrate many of the therapeutic approaches from the realms of natural medicine which promote health and prevent disease.

With Doctor Wild About Health and Healing Dr. William Campbell Douglass MD, MS and the rest of the Dr. Wild team want to help avert the health care crisis by highlighting the science behind natural therapeutic approaches, and help baby boomer listeners make wiser health care choices.
