Quote for the Week: The Future of Medicine

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

- Thomas Edison

I read this quote earlier last week on the back of my chiropractic member card and it really resonated with me.  I truly believe that doctors should and will be proponents of preventative medicine vs. reactive medicine.  With the state of health or lack thereof in the U.S., Americans are waking up.  They are increasingly turning to chiropractics, acupuncture, herbal medicine, holistic health counseling and other alternative healing modalities.  How about you? What does this quote mean to you?
