Pyramid of Health

As we move to cold and flu season, I’m finding that there’s far less fear over Covid. People are living their lives with a better understanding of the risks involved.  As I think back to March and April of 2020, as I was watching TV like everyone else, I remember watching discussions about health risks […]

Perhaps the greatest joy and reward in my career to date has been watching my daughters spend their summers working at Natural Healthcare Center. After starting with the most basic office tasks years ago, they just finished up the summer working 40-hour weeks and making important contributions to our operations. Hannah is now in her […]

There’s nothing like relaxing in the pool. Whether you’re going for a swim, playing Marco Polo, or floating in a tube, being in the water just feels good.  As you might expect, there are scientific reasons for the feel-good nature of a dip in the pool that go far beyond cooling off on a hot […]

When most people decide they want to lose weight and “get healthier,” they buy new running shoes. They either get a membership at the local gym or buy their own treadmill and start running. And running. And running. I know because I’ve treated their injuries.  To be clear, I’m not opposed to running for 20 […]

Operations Excellence

I was reading an article the other day about how Chic-fil-A is statistically the most polite quick-service/drive-thru restaurant chain. One of the main reasons for the distinction is that their employees are most likely to say “please” and “thank you” to drive-thru customers. Truth be told, I don’t spend much time in these establishments and […]

If you pay money to a business for a product or service, and that product or service doesn’t meet your expectations, or you’re not happy with the experience, you move on. You don’t have to tolerate incompetence, poor service or poor results because there are always other options. Did the dry cleaner shrink your clothes […]

It’s time to face a few sad facts. Americans consume more medication, by far, than any other country in the world, which is a big reason why we spend more on healthcare per citizen than any country in the world. However, we’re not the healthiest country in the world. Our healthcare system doesn’t produce the […]

In the previous post, I discussed the real reasons for the opioid epidemic in our country. A letter was published in a highly respected medical journal that discussed flawed research about the risk of addiction when using prescription opioids for pain management. This led to several other similarly flawed studies. Of course, big pharma capitalized […]

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioids were involved in 33,091 deaths in 2015. From 1999 to 2015, the number of opioid overdoses quadrupled. In New Jersey, the number of opioid overdose deaths increased by 16.4 percent from 2014 to 2015. The vast majority of these cases resulted from the abuse […]

In an earlier post, I discussed why the conversation about health care reform needs to change. We need to talk less about health insurance and more about making people healthier. We need to prioritize proactive disease prevention rather than reactive disease treatment if we’re ever going to reverse the chronic illness epidemic in our country […]
