S2 E15 – Dr. Sanjay Prasad: Resetting Healthcare Post-COVID-19 Pandemic

What do you do when your doctor recommends surgery to you or to a loved one? Do you question their decision? The answer for the vast majority of Americans is no. Most of us have been trained to trust our physicians completely. After all, they’re the experts. They should know best.

In his new book, Resetting Healthcare, our Book Spectrum guest this episode, Dr. Sanjay Prasad examines the lack of transparency in surgical care and offers a solution to the problem: a new, innovative tool called SurgiQuality that connects patients with qualified surgeons, offering second and third opinions, and even suggesting more conservative, non-surgical solutions as appropriate. Dr. Prasad reveals that between 10–20 percent of all surgeries in the US are unnecessary, either because of misdiagnosis or because a more conservative therapy may have been just as or even more effective.

S01-E08 – Dr Richard Ruhling: Health, Happiness & Destiny Come From Wise Choices

This week on #Book Spectrum, we talk health with Holistic Health Dr. Richard Ruhling, a physician who took public health to serve in Africa but ended up teaching at Loma Linda University where he discovered proper eating can reverse most diseases. He is the author of Health, Happiness & Destiny Come From Wise Choices. Dr. Ruhling talks about one of the leading killers of Americans: prescription drugs, the pharmaceutical industry’s desire to keep consistent clients over finding cures and how to take better care of yourself through wise diet choices.
Dr. Ruhling also discusses the merits and mistakes with the current conventional wisdom about the COVID-19 pandemic, steps to take toward preventing yourself from being afflicted by the coronavirus and what you will want to do if you think you have symptoms.
Our conversation will be available later this week during our next Book Spectrum episode.
