Message from Dr. Sisskind
In my opinion (and trust me, I’m a doctor!), our modern health care system is focused too much on treating disease and not enough on preventing it. Rather than calling it “health care” it could be called “disease care.” Our health care system needs to be more equally balanced… empowering health to prevent disease and treating disease once it occurs.
As students at U.S. medical schools, most of us never learned about the powerful healing capabilities of natural plants, herbs, seeds, roots, nuts and beans. Nor did we learn much about good nutrition, the fundamental idea that “you are what you eat.” Some foods can be incredibly healthful while others can cause society’s most severe diseases like obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
When I graduated from medical school, I took the Hippocratic Oath to “Never Do Harm.” The Oath also says “I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.”
As a member of the RealDose team, my singular goal is to live up to the Oath I took over 20 years ago…
- To empower you to become as healthy as possible.
- To help you understand how the right foods, nutrients, and natural ingredients can most benefit you.
- To give you the best information from the most trusted sources that will enlighten, inspire, and motivate you to achieve your maximum self.
