What Mark Talks About

Don’t Treat Disease, Create Health

Dr. Mark Hyman says that self-care is the key to being a healthy human today. In fact, he says, eighty percent of health conditions can be solved without a physician. The health care system puts band aids on the symptoms and doesn’t deal with the causes. “Don’t treat disease,” Hyman says. “Create health.” You can do this by taking care of yourself and solving your own health issues. You’re smarter than the healthcare system thinks you can be.

Functional Medicine

The Future of Personalized Medicine: Dig into the collaboration between medicine and technology and what kinds of benefits we can expect to see. From artificial intelligence helping us analyze data to virtual reality that provides a completely new view of an internal organ, we are living in an exciting time full of innovations that can excel medical care to new heights.

The UltraMind Solution, Health Body, Happy Mind

To fix your broken brain, you must heal your body first.
