Is medicalizing wellness the answer?

Does every health care issue require an intervention from the conventional medical care industry? In this podcast, Michael Ostrolenk along with health and wellness coach and consultant Vik Khanna, examine this question. Vik, at his website, www.KhannaOnHealth.com recently published the first article of a three part exposé of the ineffectiveness of corporate wellness programs, in partnership with our managed care-heavy health care system, in achieving actual health and wellness among its clients.  Physicians, hospitals, and nurses are trained to treat sick, individuals, on a case by case basis, not manage population health issues, contends Mr. Khanna.  Vik’s published books include, Road Warrior: Effective Fitness Strategies for Business Travelers and Ten Commandments of Faith and Fitness.
