Too Much Medicine

September 28, 2011

A recent survey of US primary care physicians revealed that nearly half (42%) believe that their patients receive too much medical care. More than a quarter of physicians surveyed believe that they themselves practice medicine too aggressively.

The survey was carried out because primary care physicians are on “the frontline of health care delivery” and “are at least indirectly responsible for initiating the cascade of health care utilization (testing, therapies, and hospitalizations) for most patients,” explain the researchers.

It appears that this survey confirms what many of us have been saying all along. That too much health care may be detrimental to your health. It’s well known that during times of doctors or nurses strikes, fewer people die.

My answer was to become an MD and an ND to have and offer the best of both worlds. I seriously thought that by now, 35 years after I entered medical school, that natural medicine would be the dominant form of health care. Unfortunately I was wrong. So that’s why I write books and articles, created a wellness program and do as many radio shows as I can to promote health.
