What can be done to fix our broken medical system? Nearly 75% of our healthcare costs are spent on preventable diseases. Within the next ten years, U.S. healthcare costs are projected to consume $4.2 trillion annually, roughly 20% of our gross domestic product. Americans spend as much per year on pharmaceutical drugs as the rest of the world combined. Powerful forces work to maintain this status quo in a medical industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for-profit driven care rather than patient driven care.

After decades of resistance, a movement to bring innovative high-touch, low-cost methods of prevention and healing into our costly, high-tech system is gaining ground. Dramatic human stories and interviews with many of our nation’s best minds and most eloquent advocates at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government – even the U.S. military – detail the problems and reveal solutions to saving the health of a nation.
