Experts Arrive

Fires occur in more than 350,000 homes in the United States each year. Once the house is on fire, a quick response is needed.

Taken as an obvious and immediate threat to health and safety, spotting fires compels us to sound the alarm. This alarm sets off an organized practiced response resulting in the arrival of highly-trained, fully-equipped experts. These experts provide the best odds for minimizing damage and saving lives.

While it is widely known that heart disease, cancer and diabetes are also major threats to health and safety, few realize these chronic diseases disable and kill more people worldwide than does anything else. Chronic diseases first manifest as weight gain, high blood pressure, gall bladder and kidney disease, blood sugar problems (pre-diabetes), cholesterol changes, joint pain, infertility and fatigue.

These early health conditions have become the most dangerous “fires” of our time.

Tremendous progress has been made in treating the consequences of chronic diseases after their damaging effects have been identified. Open heart surgery, chemotherapy and insulin are some of the best examples of remarkable 20th century advances in chronic disease treatments. Used in combination with modern, disease-based care models and new technologies, lifespan has increased for millions of people.

Still, unlike the response to home fires, a systematized, practiced response to 21st century health problems has been neither quick nor directed at the source. That is, addressing “health fires” only after tremendous damage has already occurred is more akin to calling on the contractors who perform the post-fire repairs than it is to notifying the fire fighters of early smoke and flames.

Instead of calling in experts to put out fires, we have been waiting until half of the house is gone before sounding the alarm.

The result of this approach has been that while lifespan increased gradually for many people since the last century, the HEALTHSPAN fell suddenly for most. Healthspan – the span of time when health is close to “ideal” – has become shorter and shorter over the past 40 years. Chronic diseases begin in childhood (even in the womb) and continue to develop along with growth and aging. This accelerates aging by decades and negatively impacts growth and development throughout the lifespan.

In the current environment, to live longer means routinely living longer with health fires of early chronic diseases smoldering just below the surface. Living with weight gain, high blood pressure and high blood sugar represents the current failure to LIVE BOTH LONG AND WELL in this century. This health trend has produced large populations of progressively sicker and sicker people all hoping (and expecting) to ultimately find cures for mid and late stage illnesses that now occur earlier and earlier in life.

With chronic diseases presently leading the way as the most serious threat to health, the greatest challenge of the 21st century will be to restore the expected healthspan to modern humans. By disrupting this century’s health conditions before they advance through their predictable stages, the gap between lifespan and healthspan can be narrowed, creating high states of lifetimehealth never before realized by human beings.

Like firefighters called to extinguish house fires, H E A L T H C O R R E C T I O N™ is an organized, practiced response resulting in the arrival of highly-trained, fully-equipped experts sent to provide the best odds for minimizing damage and saving lives. If you are living with “health fires” like weight gain that you cannot stop or lose, high blood pressure, prediabetes, blood sugar issues, tiredness, joint pain or other 21st century health problems:

Getting to Know Health Correction


To be healthy in the 21st century, good medicine and good intentions are no longer enough. 

In past centuries, the most serious threats to health resulted from microorganisms being passed either from person to person or through the environment. Today, in all but a few countries, diseases caused by microorganisms have been nearly eradicated as the most common cause of pre-mature death and disability. By way of extraordinary medical innovations and advances in public health, these pathogenic diseases are now highly treatable and largely preventable.

New Health Threats Have Emerged

In this century, chronic diseases have emerged as the most serious threat to health and longevity. In fact, as a result of chronic diseases, there has been a marked drop in “Personal Health Security” over the last 40 years. This alarming fall in health security occurred even in countries where the best disease-care systems in the world reside. In the United States alone, 25% of adults now have at least  2 chronic conditions.

The World Health Organization reports, “Chronic diseases are now the major cause of death and disability worldwide.”

The most common chronic diseases of this century include: high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, cancers, chronic kidney disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and diseases of the lung. Categorized as “non-communicable diseases” or NCDs, today’s chronic diseases are not caused by the microorganisms of past centuries. Instead, they mostly result from the accumulation of daily choices. Often, for this reason, they are also referred to as the “Behavior-Based Diseases.”  (BBDs)

Nearly a decade ago, the Global Burden of Disease Study reported that chronic (behavior-based) diseases had already grown to 81% of all disability-adjusted life years lost (DALY) whereas infectious diseases accounted for only about 4% worldwide. The “theory of epidemiological transition” highlights this trend of moving from a previous “age of pestilence and famine” – a time when infectious disease deaths prevailed – to the current “age of degenerative and man-made diseases,” a time when disabilities and deaths occur mostly from chronic diseases.

The dramatic shift from infectious to chronic disease death rate trends over the past century is clearly documented in data from the United States of America.

 20th Century Disease Death Rate Trends 



From improved sanitation and hygiene to vaccines, antibiotics and open heart surgery – human health problems were solved in bunches throughout the 20th century. The impact on human health stands today as a remarkable collective achievement that continues to benefit billions of people worldwide. However, growing namely from infectious disease threats and war-related trauma, current healthcare models remain rooted in frameworks ill-equipped to finally turn the tide on today’s new health problems.

The chronic disease burden is still increasing despite 40 years of well-intentioned efforts at “Care and Prevention.”

After nearly a half-century of applying old care models to new health problems, it is time to add a model of care focused entirely on the main causes of illness and premature death in 21st century humans. Beginning as weight gain, fatigue, gall bladder problems, joint pain, indigestion, high cholesterol, pre-diabetes or infertility  – these early signs of developing chronic diseases need not lead to health futures filled with prescriptions, surgeries and lost years of life.

Built on a framework of strategy and action, Health Correction embraces the complexities of modern health problems and dedicates itself to immediately disrupting them at every stage. Every person can be healthier at every age, no matter their current state of health or disease.

H E A L T H C O R R E C T I O N™ is poised to impact human health in this century just as other care models have done in the past.

Trump Fear Tactics Sells Food

If you are not yet one of those rare human beings who notice the widespread use of “Trump Fear Tactics” to sell food, you will be pleased to know, “the truth will set you free.” This is your clarion call.

Regardless how one intends to vote in the upcoming presidential election, most agree that at the heart of the art of “Trumpian Fear Tactics” is the deep understanding Mr. Donald Trump has about how vulnerable we all are when we are afraid. On lists of Donald Trump’s shortcomings, you may find “small hands,” but you will never find, “small understandings of human vulnerabilities.” While many argue “The Donald” may not be able to FEEL vulnerabilities like the rest of us, no one argues that he cannot SEE them in all of us. Mr. Trump, “the builder,” made his campaign on it. Many others, like the food industry, did it too. Being reminded that campaigns are designed to “incite,” gives “insight.”

“Fear of…” is an effective motivator, and a loud call to action. Using fear to drive a political campaign whose aim is to sell a particular candidate, (promote oneself), bears a great deal of resemblance to fear tactics used to drive a food-industry campaign whose aim is to sell food (feed itself).

“Fear of…” makes us listen. Loudly and clearly we hear them: Fear of ISIS, Fear of Invasion by Immigrants, Fear of Skipping Breakfast and Fear of Not Getting Enough Nutrition. It is when we finally become “scared enough to…” that “FEAR OF” becomes our true vulnerability. Building more walls becomes a simple solution to complicated immigration issues. Never skipping meals (eating more food) seems a reasonable way to lose weight. Fear Tactics offers the fix for our “fear of,” not for our problems.

Trump cares only how much he is voted for, not why. Food companies care only how MUCH we eat, not how well.

Just as Donald Trump did not invent fear tactics, chickens did not invent “chicken rings” or “chicken fingers.” Chickens have wings, not rings. Mr. Trump has the fingers, no matter how small. Chickens do not have them. Not ever, not at all. Both “The Donald” as the nominee and the chicken as the rings resulted from effective campaigns.

No matter one’s political leanings, it is time to stop blaming Trump for our vulnerabilities, and the chickens for the rings. Or, as Political Analyst, Ana Navarro said on CNN following yet another one of so many political moments of Trumpisms Revisionisms: “Well, we’re a little smarter than that, and it’s getting a little old.”

In other words, having insights into ground games is like getting our wits back. It turns around fears and scares away the bears. In health, as in politics, joining Ana Navarro in getting “a little smarter,” will leave many exasperated – but no longer in “Fear of.” Once unafraid, we can unhook from campaigns designed to be built on top of human vulnerabilities.

Turns out, breakfast is NOT the most important meal of the day, obesity does NOT stem from failing to move enough, skipping meals is NOT bad, and vitamins should NOT be taken “just to be sure.”

Whether it is by Donald J. Trump, or about Kellogg’s “Special K,” it is time to unhook from “what many people are saying.” It is not evidence of the truth. “The only thing we have to fear is…[not noticing fear tactics] itself.” And, as Ana said, “…it’s getting a little old.”
