America has the most expensive healthcare system in the world. Researchers cite the increase in chronic disease as a major cause of escalating costs and predict a 42 percent rise in chronic disease by 2023, adding $4.2 trillion in treatment costs.
The good news is that chronic disease is preventable, since many chronic conditions are linked to stress and unhealthy lifestyles.
Robert E. Herron, Ph.D., is an independent researcher, writer, speaker, and consultant in medical cost reduction and economic policy, and director of the Center for Holistic Systems Analysis in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
Dr. Herron's new book, New Knowledge For New Results, presents a comprehensive strategy to reduce rising medical costs. While other researchers focus mainly on financial issues, Dr. Herron re-examines the underlying foundations of modern medicine.
In a recent interview Dr. Herron talks about the current healthcare crisis and how the Transcendental Meditation technique can help prevent chronic disease and lower costs.
Global Good News will feature excerpts from the interview with Dr Herron in the coming days.
