If you’ve been keeping up with David Haase, MD, you’ll know that he has made a career out of asking better questions.
For decades, he’s guided patients toward meaningful health outcomes by getting them to ask questions like:
What is the root cause of my symptoms?
What current beliefs are holding me back?
What do I need to live for?
But Dr. Haase’s most recent question needs to be asked on a bigger scale. It’s a question that can’t just be asked in his clinic — the stakes are too high.
A societal failure to ask this question has already resulted in millions of deaths and will result in millions more if nothing changes.
That question is:
How do we create health?
It’s actually a strange question; as simple as it may sound, many people have no idea how to answer it.
Don’t worry — if you’re confused, it’s not your fault. The truth is, we’re all being brainwashed.
That’s not to say anyone is brainwashing us on purpose. It’s just an economic consequence of our society.
What do I mean by that?
Consider the number 20. Or, more specifically, 20 percent.
That’s approximately the percentage of the United States’ GDP going into healthcare.
It’s a big number, but it looks even bigger when you realize how many pockets it fills.
After all, “healthcare” isn’t some single entity sitting on a giant stack of money. That 20% of America’s GDP is paying millions of healthcare professionals and researchers across the country. Healthcare professionals, researchers, — oh, and did I mention marketers?
Yes, that’s right, we can’t forget the marketers.
It’s no secret that drug companies now spend more on advertising than actual research.
That’s where the brainwashing comes in. To keep up their enormous profits, the pharmaceutical industry has pushed drugs far beyond their intended use. They did this by filling our heads with a question:
“What drug will solve the problem?”
That question is very powerful.
It’s powerful because it’s simple.
We like simplicity. We want to walk into the doctor’s office, tell them what’s wrong, and walk out with a prescription. There wasn’t any need for a national conspiracy with sinister intentions. All they did was give us exactly what we wanted. A simple question with a simple answer.
But where has that gotten us?
Drugs are powerful tools, and with them, medical professionals save countless lives every day.
But ask a construction worker, carpenter, farmer, miner, manufacturer, soldier — anyone that works with powerful tools — and they’ll tell you that a powerful tool is dangerous when used improperly.
Thanks to a bad question, doctors across the country are using these tools improperly, and thousands die every week because of it.
You may have heard our over-reliance on prescription drugs compared to “putting a band-aid on a bullet wound”.
But while that is part of the story, that comparison is deceptive — it suggests that drugs are ineffective. I assure you, modern drugs are very, very effective.
Forget putting band-aids on bullet wounds — we’re just unclogging toilets with bulldozers. It solves the problem, but creates a dozen more.
So, what can we do?
We can ask better questions.
By asking “how do we create health?”, we open the door to endless possibilities.
With a better question, the answers to our health inquiries can be more than what fits on a clipboard check-box. When we ask “what drug will solve my problem?”, we only want our questions answered by a certified doctor. That’s because, like we said earlier, drugs are powerful tools and must be administered by a trained professional.
But when we ask “how do I create health?”, answers can come from all kinds of unexpected places — and people.
That’s because it’s a philosophical question as much as a practical one.
By asking “how do we create health?”, we are forced to ponder what “health” even means.
Asking “what drug?” implies that “health” is just a lack of sickness. But many experience dysfunction that cannot be usefully diagnosed with a disease name.
Often times, the bravest and cleverest of these people, many of them without any medical training, refuse to surrender and take matters into their own hands. These people have pioneered highly effective treatments without the use of prescription drugs.
That’s why Dr. Haase started the Creating Health Movement, and he needs as many people on board as possible.
You have a unique environment, a unique genetic makeup, and a unique set of beliefs. Because of this, you can ask questions (and give answers) that no one else could think of. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, how educated you are, or what challenges you’ve overcome: Your perspective is desperately needed.
How you can help:
One of our goals is to see Creating Health’s social media flourish as a place to share ideas and experiences that can benefit others on their health journeys.
The whole thing is just now getting off the ground, but I believe it’s going to explode. You’ll want to say you were one of the first.
How we’re helping:
I’m excited to introduce, on behalf of Dr. David Haase, the all new Creating Health Show on Youtube!
The Creating Health Show is where Doc shares everything — from philosophical insights to practical advice on how we can all create more health in our own lives.
Another exciting step we’ve taken is the opening of the Creating Health online apothecary.
There’s mountains of data showing the effectiveness of supplements. Yet, their use is still far from mainstream. Some of this is due to lobbying and misinformation campaigns targeted towards anything that hurts the sale of prescription drugs. However, another major reason why more people don’t use supplements is because they’re complicated and oftentimes, not used correctly.
Just like drugs, the mechanisms by which supplements function requires an advanced knowledge of biochemistry to understand. Because of this, consumers rely on labels and simple metrics to determine the value of a supplement. Unfortunately, this allows supplement companies to deceive their customers by exploiting the nuances of biochemistry.
By cutting important corners, manufacturers can drastically reduce the price of products without lowering the numbers on the label. The quality of the supplement suffers as a result of this, and customers unknowingly get ripped off by the thousands.
The Creating Health supplement store is different.
It’s different because our profits aren’t built on ignorance. We thrive when customers understand exactly what their getting and why.
That’s because no one else is prepared to educate customers to the extent that we are.
The website is still in its earliest stages. As of now, it’s little more than a means for Dr. Haase’s long-standing patients to get the same supplements they’ve gotten from him for years.
But as we grow, expect to see CreatingHealth.com blossom into a resource of blog posts, informational videos, and scientific data.
On behalf of Dr. Haase and the Creating Health Team, I hope you will count yourselves among the first in this movement to not only save lives, but improve them in every meaningful way possible.
