You probably hear me say all the time that the medical model is broken or see me use #brokenmedicalmodel frequently on social media, and you might be wondering why that is. So today I’m going to share with you a few of the reasons. I’ve mentioned some of these things before, but this episode is a concise way for me to explain why it is so broken and give you some examples.

Tune in to hear the truth about how the medical model hurts us, as well as how a wellness perspective differs from the problematic practices we see with typical doctors. You’ll learn how people have been fooled into thinking that healthy responses to illnesses are a bad thing, why prescription medication is so prevalent in our society, and what makes this incredibly problematic for our bodies and overall health.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • Dr. Christine’s metaphor to help people understand why the medical model is broken.
  • How solutions from a wellness perspective differ from the medical mindset.
  • Examples of healthy responses that the medical model wants you to think are sick responses.
  • The problem with proton-pump inhibitors.
  • Why you can’t judge your health based on symptoms.
  • The staggering amount of money Americans spend on prescription medications.
  • How pharmaceutical companies are spending their money.
  • Why the one-size-fits-all approach medical doctors use hurts us.
  • The connection between Alzheimer’s and cholesterol-lowering drugs.
