Dr. Darshan Shah: Revolutionizing Health Optimization: Helping Society Quit Being Sick
By Lynn Marie Morski, MD, Esq.
Medical school spends four years teaching doctors how to treat disease, but almost no time teaching the wellness practices that can prevent disease before it starts. So when Next Health founder Dr. Darshan Shah found himself starting to develop health issues, he decided to educate himself on how to modify his lifestyle to optimize his health. His quest was so successful in reversing his own conditions that he began teaching the same lifestyle interventions to his patients, often times saving them from having to go under the knife to solve their weight issues. He then became so passionate about changing our model of healthcare from one that focuses on treating disease to one of health optimization, that he has taken his mission to help society quit being sick to the next level by opening health optimization centers to empower patients to take their wellness into their own hands.
