This second book in a two-volume set tells how the healthcare community is working with patients and their caregivers to help improve health using P4 medicine, proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. The healthcare community is finding ways to predict one's susceptibility to diseases, so they can be prevented from occurring, when possible. When diseases do emerge, it is developing personalized therapies and ways for patients to participate in their own healthcare. At the same time, systems thinking dispels many misconceptions, such as `natural' foods and `superfoods'. In fact, the only true superfood is mother's breast milk. Also, dietary antioxidants prevent inflammation by activating our natural antioxidant system (Nrf2). However, environmental toxins can counteract our best efforts. Still, systems thinking encourages us to fix the problem and not the blame. This book will appeal to professionals, non-professionals and patients, who can learn how to improve healthcare and prevent diseases, while reversing the effects of global climate change.
