NEW MEDICINE: 
GUIDING LIGHTS OF THE FUTURE

This is a powerful time in Medicine!  A few game changers are coming to the frontline to radically SHIFT the possibilities for how healthy we are, how long we live, and how we do it.

In today’s society, though, even the most holistic person can experience burn out, chronic fatigue, dissatisfaction with life and mental exhaustion.

MEDICINE IS CHANGING–DRASTICALLY

The Power of Context

PART 3 of 4 articles

 

As Malcolm Gladwell states in his book “The Tipping Point”:

“Epidemics are sensitive to the conditions and circumstances of the times and places in which they occur“.

 

What is it that changes everything…something about our circumstances or awareness that moves an idea, service or product into the forefront and into Mainstream acceptance?   Malcolm Gladwell’s book, “The Tipping Point” is all about that, and we’ve been exploring his 3 main ideas.  This month’s article is all about the CONTEXT that creates acceptance and breakthrough to success.

The Stickiness Factor

PART 2 of 4 articles

Do Dogs Need Fruits and Vegetables?
