The End of IllnessCOMBO, BOOK + DVD

BOOK, THE END OF ILLNESS - DAVID B. AGUS, M.D.
From one of the world’s foremost physicians and researchers, a monumental work that radically redefines our conventional conceptions of health and illness to offer new methods for living a long, healthy life.

After considering the discoveries that have led to progress in treating some diseases, Dr. David B. Agus asked an essential question: Why aren’t we better at curing illnesses like cancer? Based on his groundbreaking research and the clinical trials he has conducted at the nation’s leading medical centers, he came to the realization that we’ve been approaching medicine from a faulty perspective, and the best way to prevent and combat maladies like cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, and neuro-degeneration is to first embrace a totally new view of the human body.

The End of Illness asks readers to reconsider everything they think they know about health -- and give up believing many myths that may actually be causing them harm and decreasing longevity. These myths revolve around a spectrum of misconceptions, from the benefits of vitamins and supplements to the role of DNA in one’s fate. In attempting to reduce our understanding of ailments to a mutation, germ, or deficiency, Dr. Agus proves we have forgotten that the body is a complex system.

He presents a systemic picture of the body’s vast mechanisms that drive it either toward or away from sickness, empowering readers to take charge of their individual health in very personal, customized ways they’ve never imagined before. Along the way, Dr. Agus offers insights and access to breathtaking and powerful new technologies that promise to transform medicine in our generation. He also shows that there is no “right” answer in health decisions. This is a radically different approach that will not only change how we care for ourselves, but also how we develop the next generation of treatments and cures. The End of Illness represents a dramatic departure from orthodox thinking that promises to revolutionize our quest for long, healthy lives.

The book includes the “Personal Health Inventory Questionnaire,” a document to review prior to visiting your doctor, with questions to help you evaluate your current health state:

  • Energy Levels: How would you rate your energy level on a scale of 1-10?
  • Walking: Are you walking the same way you always have? Is it hard to walk fully upright?
  • Breathing: Does it hurt to breathe deeply? Do you cough when you take a deep breath?
  • Fingers: Do your joints ache after using them? If you’re a woman, is your ring finger longer than your index finger? If so, you may be twice as likely to suffer from osteoarthritis.
  • Sleep: Do you sleep well? Do you resort to sleep aids on occasion?
  • Also included is a section entitled “Health Rule,” your practical takeaway at the end of each chapter. For example:
  • Be wary of headlines that tell you what’s good or bad for you. Scrutinize data before accepting it as dogma.
  • Get your nutrition from real, whole food that is close to nature as possible. Never trust anything that comes out of a blender, juicer, or glass jar.
  • Find opportunities to move your body as much as you can during the course of your day.
  • Keep a schedule for eating, sleeping, and exercise. Schedule downtime, and respect regularity.

DVD, THE END OF ILLNESS - DAVID B. AGUS, M.D.
What if everything you thought about health was wrong?

Can we live robustly until our last breath? In The End of Illness, David B. Agus, MD, one of the world’s leading cancer doctors, researchers, and technology innovators, challenges long-held wisdoms and dismantles misperceptions about what “health” means. The United States is the number one spender in the world on health care, but only ranks 32nd for overall health. The time has come for us to stop thinking about disease as something the body “gets” or “has” but rather to think of it as something the body does. Run Time: Approx. 115 minutes

With a blend of storytelling, landmark research, and provocative ideas, Dr. Agus presents an eye-opening picture of the complex and endlessly enigmatic human body, and all of the ways it works -- and fails -- ultimately showing us how a new perspective on our individual health will allow each of us to achieve that often elusive but now reachable goal of a long, healthy life.

This indispensable program is a call for revising the way we think about health, and it’s filled with practical but impossible-to-ignore suggestions that may surprise you including:

  • How taking multivitamins and supplements could significantly increase our risk for diseases like cancer over time.
  • Why sitting down most of the day, despite a strenuous morning workout, can be as bad as or worse than smoking.
  • How sneaky sources of daily inflammation -- from high heels to the common cold -- can lead to a fatal heart attack, and even rob us of our sanity.
  • How three inexpensive medications -- aspirin, statins, and an annual flu vaccine -- can delay or prevent disease and add more vibrant years to our lives.
  • How taking shortcuts to health via blending fruits and vegetables, and sometimes even by purchasing what we think is “fresh,” could be shortchanging our health.

Dr. Agus also offers insights and access to breathtaking and powerful new technologies that promise to transform medicine in our generation, and demonstrates how gene testing and analysis, along with other technologies, can detect early signs of disease and save lives. Stressing the necessity of open discussions with our doctors, he emphasizes his belief that there is no “right” answer, no master guide that’s “one size fits all.” Each one of us must get to know our own body in uniquely personal ways, and Dr. Agus shows us exactly how to do that so that we can individually create a plan to live longer. This ground-breaking approach will change not only how we care for ourselves but also how we develop the next generation of treatments. The key is prevention – to delay and avoid disease – so we’re all healthy enough to take advantage of new technologies and cures on the horizon.

  • Bonus Material: Interview and Audience Q & A
  • 50-minute in depth interview with Dr. Agus
  • Learn more about Dr. Agus and what inspires him to continue advancing in the prevention and treatment of advanced diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.
  • What we can learn from Lance Armstrong’s story, and the hope that other cancer patients and survivors inspire in Dr. Agus.
  • More about personalized medicine, and how to go in with all of your data to focus on your 10-year plan for health in collaboration with your doctor.
  • Learn what a vitamin actually is, and what can happen if we ingest more than we need.
  • Find out why nuns tend to have such longevity, and how a regular schedule can impact your own health.
  • Learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, and the studies that leave Dr. Agus confident we can reverse the disease over the next decade.
  • Why eating “real” fish is much more beneficial than taking fish oil supplements.
  • Discover how to achieve restful sleep, and whether there are any instances where sleep aides can be beneficial.
  • Audience Q & A Session with Dr. Agus
  • How do I spend more time with my doctor?
  • How does somebody like me get a DNA test, and should we all be getting one?
  • What is inflammation, and how do you know if you have it?
  • Are there any downfalls or side effects to statins?
