Are you sinking into the Quicksand of Pain? Stranded in the Mountains of Misery? Or are you simply lost in a Forest of Symptoms? Wouldn’t it be welcoming to have a map to help you navigate your way around the amazing world of complementary or alternative therapies – so that you could finally understand which therapies are right for you and your specific health problems? Well this is exactly what my guest this week thought about when he experienced health problems that eventually took him to the world renowned Mayo Clinic for answers. When even the mayo Clinic couldn’t help him, he turned to the world of complementary and alternative therapies for answers and in the process decided to create a state-of-the-art reference guide to complementary and alternative therapies. To discuss his book How to UnBreak Your Health, please join me this Wednesday as I chat with author Alan Smith.
When the Mayo Clinic didn’t have a cure for my health problems I turned to complementary and alternative therapies. It was hard for me to believe that modern medical science didn’t have the answer to every problem, but I was living proof that mainstream medicine has limits. As a Baby Boomer I’m used to my generation changing America at every stage of our life so why should aging be any different? I knew that the current medical situation needed to change too. There had to be a way to solve my health problem and I was willing to try anything. More than two decades of weekly traveling and working in a dying industry had taken a toll on my health but slowly it began to improve along with my outlook on life. As each day got a little better I wanted to share my discoveries. Fortunately my journalism degree from the University of Missouri and years of media experience gave me the confidence to tackle the challenge of a new health book.
It's good to talk.
