Optimal Wellness Labs Presents:

The 2014 Health Heroes Award 

An Exclusive Expert Speaker Series Designed To 
Empower You - Mind, Body, and Spirit – to Optimal Health!

Learn From 30 Of The World’s Foremost Wellness Experts
As They Tear Down The Walls Between Traditional & Alternative Medicine…
And Teach Us The NEW RULES For Living Healthier, Longer, More Productive Lives

For a generation, the “managed care” approach to wellness in America has been simple:

OWL - Worried Woman MD OfficeAssess symptoms.  Assign a diagnosis.  Prescribe a treatment or pill.

Straightforward, but has it really worked?

It’s true – we’re living longer than ever – but are we living better?

As a nation, we spend over $47 trillion each year “managing” chronic illness.

And yet – the healthcare system in America seems to have NO plan to deal with the underlying root cause of disease!

This is how the managed care healthcare system in America functions today…

And you, as a patient, feel trapped.

How do you know where to turn, or even who to trust?

And it’s not just us …

Doctors feel trapped as well …

There has to be another treatmentDoctors didn’t get into medicine to do things “TO” people; they got into medicine to do things “FOR” people!

And yet 82% of physicians polled in a recent survey feel helpless to really make a difference in their career.

Nearly half say – given the chance to do it all over again – they’d pick a different line of work!

What does that say about our current healthcare system in America?

Page-Divider

At Optimal Wellness Labs, we’re certain one thing is clear…

Hands make heart shapeSystems don’t help people.  People help people.

And if we ever want to move past the system, we need to look beyond man-made institutions for the answers.

We have to work together – as both patients and practitioners – to go beyond hospitals, billing codes, and board rooms – to find a better path to wellness for ourselves – and those we love …
