The “Self-Health” Movement – From Conventional to “Preventional” Medicine

Aired 25 September 2018 – 5:00 PM EDT

An Interview with Author and Holistic Medical Pioneer Dr. Elson Haas

“Our entire body politic suffers from irony deficiency. Seeing a doctor won’t help, but seeing a paradox will. So here’s an irony supplement to munch on. The third leading cause of death in the US is medicine itself.” — Swami Beyondananda


In these strange times when it’s hard to tell real fake news from fake real news, there are a lot of mixed messages coming from the health care domain. On one hand, we have big pharma and mainstream medicine promoting drugs and surgery. On the other, there are countless old and new ways to impact not just the linear activity of our cells, but also the “field” that determines how our cells behave.

Getting the right distinctions can be literally a life or death decision.

Our guest this week, Dr. Elson Haas, helps us sort through the hype and mythology and find out which approaches are best for you. With over 40 years of experience pursuing both mainstream and complementary medicine, Dr. Haas has been a pioneer in the “self-health” movement that helps individuals take charge of their own wellbeing.

Dr. Elson Haas has been bridging the worlds of mainstream and alternative medicine his entire career. He is an integrative family medicine practitioner with more than 40 years of experience as a physician. He is founder and director of Preventive Medical Center of Marin, an integrative healthcare clinic in San Rafael, California. Dr. Haas is author of a dozen popular books on health and nutrition, including Staying Healthy with the Seasons, Staying Healthy with Nutrition, The Detox Diet, Ultimate Immunity and, most recently, Staying Healthy with NEW Medicine.

As more of us are coming to realize, there is more to health than treating illness, and that the proverbial ounce of prevention — wellness assurance — is ultimately more efficient than health care insurance. In this lively and informative interview, Dr. Haas offers five simple and practical things that ANYONE can do to help move the dial toward wellness. You’ll also find out how a mainstream physician discovered and applied Eastern medicine, and how being in harmony with the seasons and our environment creates a healthier field.
