Rethinking the Role of Technology in Health Care

By Andrew Weil, M.D.

In this excerpt from the best-selling book “You Can’t Afford to Get Sick,” Andrew Weil, M.D., one of the world's foremost authorities on health, wellness and integrative medicine, challenges us to rethink our beliefs about the nature of health and healing, the role of technology in treatment, and our expectations of medicine.
