New York is telling people what they can drink, and Obamacare is set to raise premiums on smokers in a government effort to force smokers and the obese to repent of their ways.
What if doctors starting prescribing nutrition and exercise? What if, instead of pills or surgery, they demanded that their patients try the natural method first? What if, when patients come in for colds and sinus infections, they prescribe going home and resting until it goes away?
These are just random thoughts I’m throwing around, but what if our doctors did a little more to put off responsibility on the patients themselves instead of aiding the pharmaceutical companies that give them free lunch once a week and tickets to the Lakers game?
Obviously, I have been fat a long time. In all those years, although I did have doctors tell me I needed to lose weight, it was more of a fleeting thought – no one ever sat me down and spoke with me about nutrition and exercise. When I began this journey of mine, I had to do the research. I still spend countless hours researching what I can do better.
What if we just start telling people no? Is that violating their Hippocratic oath, or is that just the prescription patients need?
