Wellness Information Now can help you become an informed and active patient.
There are tens of thousands of scientific, medical, and clinical studies attesting to the efficacy of preventatives, treatments and cures for a majority of the diseases and illnesses that plague today’s society. The public seldom sees or hears the results of these studies. To make matters worse, many approved tests and drugs that are prescribed have the potential to cause complications equal to or greater than what they were meant to help, and many are often sugar coated.

Wellness Information Now provides the information and knowledge you need to become your own best advocate for a healthier, longer life. Our Wellness Bulletins are not our opinions or theories on what will work, but information and knowledge based on scientific and medical studies, peer reviewed, and on file with a governmental agency.
You may not have heard about, and your physician may not be aware of many of these substances and or treatments because they are inexpensive, readily available, and do not require a prescription.
Wellness Information Now does not make any medical claims. We only present the information as it has been filed. We urge you to discuss what you learn in our bulletins with your physician and provide him or her references for verification.
In some of our wellness bulletins, if we point out a few of the short comings of the medical profession, and /or the system, it may appear as if we are disapproving of physicians. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have nothing but the highest regard and respect for these men and women who have invested many years and vast sums of money in the study of medicine, and have dedicated their lives to healing people.
Most physicians honestly believe the treatments they prescribe are in the best interest of the patient. Understandably, physicians use only what they have been taught, and therein lies the problem. Until recently most medical schools offered only 4-6 hours of nutritional courses, if that. As it has become more apparent that good nutrition is the foundation for good health, many medical schools, although not yet enough are offering more nutritional courses.
Much of what is being presented to these soon to be and practicing physicians is supplied by special interest groups whose agenda places profits above the patient’s best interest. Generally, physicians have too many patients and too little time to become involved in independent research or digest the thousands of scientific and medical studies published in accepted medical journals. Due to constraints placed upon their time, physicians have little choice but to accept and trust information passed along by groups that benefit from its dissemination.
While a sad comment on today’s society, we have all been put in a position of having to exercise good judgment and apply the old Russian proverb used by President Ronald Reagan to President Mikhail Gorvachev during an arms control treaty.. “Doverai, no proveryai” (Trust but verify.)
Why this information is vital to your good health.
The human body is the most miraculous piece of machinery in the universe, far more complex than the most advanced computers. It has the ability to prevent and correct the most egregious treatment we inflict upon it. We have learned well how to make life threatening corrections through surgery and other drastic measures, which are being used daily by highly trained physicians. Many of these measures would not be necessary if we would only apply the preventive steps whose efficacy has been proven.
To better explain how the application of the correct information and knowledge can help us achieve a healthier and longer life, let us look at a very simple yet complex piece of equipment by today’s standards – the automobile, Hundreds of individual components working together and properly maintained will result in trouble-free performance. However, peak performance can only be achieved by and maintained by providing a few necessities such as: gas, motor oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolant, a functioning battery, brake pads, and Freon
The deficiency of any one or combination of these would result in a partial or complete malfunction. Far more complex, the human body has millions of working parts, all dependent on each other. For starters, in order to function properly, the body requires the right combination of substances including nutrients, vitamins, minerals, liquids, and more. As in the car analogy, a deficiency in any one or combination of these generally results in malfunction in some form of illness or disease, and accelerating the aging process.
On the other hand, when we insure that our bodies have sufficient amounts of the required substances, we strengthen our immune system, thereby protecting our body.
In the early days of what has become known as modern medicine, we were taught to leave the maintenance information to our family physician. That advice has been passed on through the years even as our knowledge of what it takes to remain healthy and extend our life span has become more complicated. Gone are the days when the advice of the family practitioner “take 2 aspirin and go to bed” are the norm. Also gone are the days when physicians were able to spend more time with a patient and were not under enormous pressure to order unnecessary tests, procedures or prescribe new costly drugs.
Most of us have come to expect our primary physician to be aware of the most recent studies and findings and to guide us accordingly.
This expectation is not realistic.
Physicians today have too many patients to serve and too little time to spend with them, allowing scant time for study. Instead health care professionals have come to depend on information passed on to them from other sources, frequently drug suppliers and special interest organizations. Additionally, the pressure of many hospitals on doctors to prescribe tests in order to generate more revenue often compromises our best interest. Due to the new discoveries and major advancements in modern medicine, it is now more important than ever for each person to take some of the responsibility for his or her own health and welfare. We should know how to select the physician who will best serve our needs, what information will help the physician correctly diagnose our condition, which options to ask the physician about, what is the possible outcome we can expect of the recommended treatment or prescription, when to go for a second, or even third opinion, and most of all – what can we do to prevent being put in the position of having to see the physician in the first place (except for routine exams.)
There was a time many years ago when physicians ‘would not have taken kindly to patient’s proactive interest in their own treatment. Fortunately physicians today not only welcome your involvement, but actually encourage you to take part. And recent studies have shown that patient involvement results in faster healing. It is not surprising then, that a few hospitals and physician practices have begun helping you get involved. It is predicted this trend will grow.
The good news is, subscribers to our Wellness Bulletins and their physicians can now draw upon the tens of thousands of peer reviewed medical, scientific, and clinical studies on file with both governmental and private agencies attesting to the efficacy of substances that will prevent, treat and even cure most of the known health problems.
The bad news is that as most of these studies are about substances that:
are not patentable, do not require a prescription, are low cost, and have few or no adverse side effects, the producers are not able to market them as having health benefits. Fortunately that doesn’t prevent us from reporting these studies and tests.
