About the Book:
Would you like to discover the powerful ways God is part of the healing process? Do you think the media, the government, or your doctor is telling you the whole truth when it comes to health care? Are you tired of taking medications that really don't fix the problem? In The Ultimate Prescription, Dr. James Marcum, a board-certified cardiologist, in-demand speaker, and radio host, discusses these questions and many more from a biblical point of view. He encourages you to find the real answers about your health—and the health of your loved ones. Dr. Marcum explains what he believes is wrong with our current health care system, how to get back on track, and how the spiritual dimension of our health is often being ignored. Discover today the true path to healthy living in The Ultimate Prescription.
After reading the book, I have a new perspective on healthcare as a Christian. The author used the days of creation as described in scripture to show us how to live a healthier and more productive life. The book was easy to read and understand. Dr Marcum used examples from real life patients to show us that many healthcare providers prescribe medications before looking at the underlying cause of the ailment. Eating the wrong type of food, lack of exercise, and increased stress can cause many different physical and emotional problems. Many of us are resistant to change and the author says that we need to change the way we live with the help of the Bible. There may be some readers who may disagree with the author but it is important to keep an open mind and you may learn something new and inspirational.
