A look at the statistics of the hospital admissions and the death toll as it became apparent that the coronavirus was a behemoth we were woefully unprepared to conquer begs the question: Why were we so unhealthy as a nation that our innate immune system failed?
An indigenous inflammatory profile left us with no option but to hide until the experts came up with a vaccine. The rude awakening for those with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and other co-morbidities left thousands sequestered and fearful of their options.
Brian Kolender, M.D., an internal medicine physician and one of the very few specialists in prevention, cautions it’s time to no longer accept the inevitability of chronic disease. “Heart attack and stroke are 100 percent preventable,” he says with unparalleled conviction, “but the patient has to take the first step in joining a practice where the relationship with the doctor is a journey of sustainable health.” © Annemarie Cronin Agency
