Healthcare gets ROCKED in a good way with ‘Direct Primary Care’ services
(NaturalHealth365) In 2015, healthcare spending in the United States reached a jaw-dropping $3.2 trillion – exceeding the federal spending for national defense, homeland security, education and welfare. It appears as if “a pill for every ill” is alive and well. (but, not for long)
With more than 86 percent of current healthcare spending used to pay for chronic conditions, such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular issues and diabetes – we clearly are ready for a positive change to help humanity. And, according to Cammy Benton, MD – an integrative doctor and expert on functional medicine – there is a much better way to treat disease and maintain great health.
Discover the newest way to effectively change the course of healthcare – throughout the world. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and integrative medical expert Cammy Benton, MD will talk about a rapidly growing field of medicine that treats patients – the way it should be done – as individuals. Find out how ‘direct primary care’ is literally the future of medicine. Don’t miss this inspiring and empowering program based on good science and compassionate care.

Natural healthcare model has its focus on the root causes of dis-ease
One of the cornerstones of direct primary care is the use of functional medicine – a systems biology-based approach that concentrates on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Function medicine practitioners maintain that chronic disease is driven by food and lifestyle – and influenced by environment and genetics.
One overarching principle of functional medicine is to restore the balance between a patient’s environment and physiology.
Functional and integrative healthcare providers often favor a “team” approach, with certified integrative nutritionists, health coaches and life coaches all working with the blessings of a medical doctor.
Dr. Benton notes that this medical system can often help to identify and prevent serious health problems by addressing early symptoms and treating the root cause – thereby helping to save on long-term medical costs. In fact, Dr. Benton says, “studies show that direct primary care results in fewer emergency room and hospital visits.”

A much better way to effectively eliminate disease symptoms – most of the time
Once the root causes of disorders are identified, functional medicine doctors use a variety of techniques to address them. These may include a nutritional “reset” – such as an elimination diet or a high phytonutrient diversity diet – along with the use of nutraceuticals such as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and botanicals.
They may also advise lifestyle changes – such as improving sleep and increasing physical activity – as well as stress management techniques such as meditation, guided imagery and biofeedback.
It isn’t only chronic diseases that can benefit from holistic treatment. For example, an illness such as influenza can respond very well – without the need for antiviral drugs such as TamiFlu, which can trigger many unwanted side effects. Instead, Dr. Benton recommends things like, elderberry syrup, a natural remedy with immune system-boosting and antiviral effects.
Join us for a highly-informative show that gives you a clear look at how to take better care of yourself – all the years of your life. This program will definitely restore your faith in medicine and the future of humanity.
