I watched a recent video from the Onion News Network that promoted a tongue-in-cheek way to keep social security solvent. It outlined an approach that encouraged Americans to live faster and die younger. It cut taxes on cigarettes, outlawed helmets and encouraged sleep only “when dead.” In place of senior citizen’s checks, vouchers were handed out for grain alcohol and hang gliding. The goal was to cut health costs by shortening lifespan by 15-20 years.
Another way of achieving the same cost-cutting goals while lengthening lifespan and living a mindful, fulfilling and healthy life might be to listen to my guest today Dr. Lorene Wu — a specialist in blending Western and Eastern medical approaches that balances energy through mind-body-spirit medicine. She is an MD who is board-certified in Family Medicine and is also a Diplomate of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She describes how you can lead a truly “balanced” life and benefit from the best of both medical worlds. You will be thoughtfully walked through the ins and outs of Eastern medical philosophies, learn how they complement our Western medical approach and how and when to choose one over the other in a manner that best suits your mind and body.
She founded The Whole Life Center in the Chicago area and will change how you think about medicine and life. Please join us!
