Modern healthcare has changed the world. Since 1900, deaths from infectious bacterial diseases have dropped by 95% thanks to one thing: antibiotics. And we've never been better equipped to handle injury. Our medical success has changed the nature of illness. Acute conditions no longer dominate the landscape because they can be well managed by healthcare.
Unfortunately, chronic conditions have replaced infection and injury as healthcare’s top challenges. Medicine applies labels like “chronic pain” to a wide variety of undiagnosed conditions. And until we discover solutions, some healthcare treatments actually pose risks, as potential benefits become less and less probable.
That’s why taking control of your own health is so important. You know your body better than anyone. You know your thinking, your moods. And you can learn how and why to make simple changes through self-management. The MOBE Guided Self-Management Program is dedicated to helping people like you do just that.
Modern healthcare is a wonder. But in non-acute situations, like when you need to boost your immune system against infection, medicine’s true purpose is to support your body’s natural ability to heal and repair itself. The real hero remains your amazing, self-repairing, self-healing body.
