Show Notes


Dr.  Michael Young joins The TrulyFit Podcast to discuss his book, The Illness of Medicine.
_
We discuss:

  • What goes on behind the scenes in the medical health delivery system in the USA
  • How Medical Care is experienced on both sides of the table
  • How Healthcare Organizations are being controlled by the insurance and pharmaceutical industries rather than these industries working with them
  • How patients have no control over their own healthcare choices and Doctors have lost the ability to be self-directed in patient care
  • The significant obstacles patients endure and the exasperation of the healthcare workers that help them navigate them.
