We propose that the major healthcrises in the United Statesare not about heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, or obesity. Instead they areabout violence, prejudice, social isolation, and runaway materialism.Unfortunately, traditional health promotion continues to "attack" our problemsby declaring war on disease, obsessing about epidemiologically based riskfactors and frightening people about what they eat, how much they weigh, andwhat they like to do or not do. These approaches rarely help and often createan atmosphere of anxiety and confusion. This book is an invitation tohealth professionals to rethink our current understanding of health, illness,and the process of healing. It covers topics that are rarely addressed inhealth promotion including the history of the human species, the ScientificRevolution, quantum physics, and the latest mind/body/spirit research. While itmay seem as if this information is only marginally related to health, webelieve it provides a critical foundation for the truly holistic approach tohealth promotion we describe in detail in this book.It is time to re-create ourprofession and set a daring new course to improve the quality of the humanexperience.
