Healthcare Models | Sickness vs. Wellness

Watch Time – 2 minutes

I was recently interviewed on a podcast about the state of healthcare in the US today. Watch as I explain what I call the Sickness Model vs. Wellness Model of Healthcare.


Interviewer asks question.

Dr. Jack’s answer –

Sure. So, when I talk about the sickness model, is that it’s the typical pill and procedure approach that the average medical doctor provides. So, the medical doctor is not giving us any lifestyle tips. They’re not talking about nutrition. Maybe they’ll say a couple of words at most. Or follow this plan or follow the guidelines.

I don’t want to do these procedures. I want better answers.”
