A Fence or an Ambulance

I recently came across a poem titled “A Fence or an Ambulance” by Joseph Marlins. It’s finishes with the lines:

Better put a strong fence ‘round the top of the cliff … than an ambulance down in the valley.

Being a doctor feels a lot like being the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff.

It would be smarter to build a better fence at the top

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and the cause and prevention of disease.” –Thomas Edison

After treating thousands of patients for their lifestyle related illness, I’m passionate about teaching healthy living as the best prevention. I want you to improve your health beyond just fixing niggling symptoms. You have the capacity to do much more for your health than any doctor or medicine.

I want to help you stay healthy, feel great and stay away from the doctor.

I think part of my reason for writing this was to convince myself to keep going. Yes, I may be adding to the noise, but increasing my reach and helping people before they get to my office is my justification.

I’m writing to help people shift their mindset and approach to health. To put their health first , and simply live well.

If I can achieve that, I’m happy.
