Perhaps he could order UnDo It! By Dean Ornish, MD and Anne Ornish from Amazon as well as books on The Blue Zones for ideas and shop at his Whole Foods Markets a lot. The cure he seeks may be in the kitchen…and Dr. Ornish’s work has shown in research that what he advocates lengthen telomeres. It’s low tech, as well.
His answer may already be in the books he sells. Now, to get the Washington Post or any major newspaper to report it. Alas, that is a far more difficult task.
It’s the real tragedy that the answers are there but the traditional media doesn’t want to report them or doesn’t know about them. Why?
Good question. I don’t know the answer but it undoubtedly involves money because the powers that be make lots of money off of disease management and high tech interventions and selling addictive junk food. And newspapers can’t afford to lose them as advertisers.
I hope I am wrong. Maybe tomorrow I will read in the New York Times about the advances of lifestyle medicine which started with Dr Ornish. Or not.
The evidence is there. The research as well. It’s just not of interest, I suppose. Since it doesn’t bleed, it doesn’t lead.
When the Washington Post does as in-depth investigation of Dr. Neal Barnard’s clinic in Washington D.C., I will know the tide has turned. Until then, I am on my soap box as a handicapped health media reporter here. Who else would actually want to hire me to risk losing advertisers, seeing my qualifications? I am certified as handicapped. It started with abuse by a priest and I have spent my entire adult life trying to find answers as how to heal. Along the way I uncovered unexpected healing modalities.
I will share them here and no one is forced to read them but at least I have done what I could to pass on what I discovered. The one thing I have is the will to know the truth no matter how difficult it is to face and how high the cost.
I have paid a very high price to investigate and learn. It’s my calling to report on it, for what it’s worth.
