Although we released our book, Your Guide to Optimal Health (www.personalwellnesswheel.com) more than a year ago, it seems that as potential health care reform gains momentum, the importance of a preventative approach to health is increasingly appreciated. We just finished a short interview segment on CNN about the book's philosophy of taking the initiative and responsibilty for one's personal health. It is exactly the philosophy that MedHelp promotes. Use the available resources, including other experiences to make your self as healthy as possible.  There are so many components of personal health stress reduction, nutrition, exercise, healthy lifestyle etc that it is impossible for your doctor to cover all of these areas. They are critically important, however your PCP is not equipped or trained to handle all of those and is not paid to provide those things. In this regard, our healthcare system has failed to support a preventative philosophy. Thank goodness for innovative resources like MedHelp, a community for health answers. Remember that the best gift you can give someone for the holidays is good health. Its the gift that keeps on giving
