With no health background, my interest arose from observing the difference in health outcomes available to patients who had a higher level of medical literacy.
Not needing a doctor from childhood on-wards, I assumed terrific health & healthcare were a given. Weirdly, there is no other important aspect of my life where I would casually ignore common sense.
Over the years I came to understood that health is not a spectator sport, and an interaction with a family doctor in my 40s led me to understand that a personal understanding of health was a priority. I had no interest in subsidizing diagnosis and treatment guidelines which don’t recognize what is important to me.
My 40s also led me to understand the performance enhancing aspects of personalized medicine, exercise and NLP. There’s wiggle room so ageing doesn’t need to mean decline.
The questions became:
- how do I get the independent medical information relevant to me, when I want it, and without being dependent on others?
- how can I drive personal performance by prioritizing what’s most important?
- how can I avoid being vacuumed into the medical system for chronic conditions, knowing that once I’m in the system it’s not easy to get out?
