What's Your Health Worth?By: DAVE WOYNAROWSKI, M.D.
The World's Top Anti-Aging Specialist
I got the following question emailed to me the other day. "Doc, How many fish oil capsules should a person take daily and what's the cost per day?"
This really got me thinking. You see I'll admit that I occasionally get someone writing in grousing about how expensive this anti-aging and preventative health stuff is!
I have practiced Traditional Internal Medicine for 16 years now and I have seen some dramatic changes.
If we sit down and analyze these changes, I think we can answer Tom's question a little better, as well as do some more of my favorite and apparently most irritating thing: predicting the future!
What is Traditional Medicine? Well in many countries around the world it is exactly the kind of vitamin and herbal supplementation that many of you are doing right now. In places like China the compounds making up Instant Endurance have been used for centuries.
In this country Traditional Medicine centers on prescription drugs, scientific technology, and the body as a machine without a soul.
The actual hierarchy from my standpoint is (in descending order of importance of impact on National Health Policies):
1) Drug Companies
2) Drug Company Lobbyists in Washington
3) Insurance Companies
4) Insurance Company lobbyists in Washington
5) Health Plan Administrators
6) Hospital Administrators
8) And last in line, you know who the patient who is actually paying for a lot of all of this!
Right now our traditional medical system is a 1 Trillion dollar a year industry!
Complementary and alternative Medicine gross around 25 Billion at this point.
It is predicted that these numbers will be absolutely reversed by the year 2050.
In other words Complementary and alternative Medicine will be a 1 Trillion dollar a year industry with the consumers holding all the power!
Traditional medicine will be relegated to 25 billion.
What this means to you is that the longer you live the less likely you will be to have effective affordable Health Insurance Coverage.
In other words, you and I are on our own together.
Now let me answer Tom's email question the best I can.
The amount of fish Oil a person should take depends on what they are trying to achieve.
If you do a "meta analysis" of all the studies on all the conditions that fish Oil has been studied in the average dose you come up with is 7.4 grams a day.
This is close to 6 capsules.
However the heart benefits begins at as little as 1-2 caps per day. Arthritis, and Alzheimer's may require 8 to 10 a day.
