Having a regular health checkup may be a good idea, but it’s tied to an outmoded approach to wellness. Looking to see if you have “it” yet—“it” being some deadly disease. In reality, checkups rarely offer anything that actually helps a person feel better. Research published over the last two years has even suggested that most health care screening tests, with the exception of checking blood and eye pressure, diabetes and colonoscopy, may cause more harm than good. In this light, it’s the perfect time to evolve from doing “check-ups” to “TuneUps.”
TuneUpDocs, developed by board certified internist Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, was launched at the opening of Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, MD.
“TuneUpDocs revolutionizes the standard approach to health care by expanding the medical toolkit and providing scientifically proven, effective ways to optimize and maintain health, improving quality of life and longevity,” said Dr. Teitelbaum, author of seven books including the perennial bestsellers From Fatigued to Fantastic! and the Beat Sugar Addiction NOW! series. “Comprehensive Medicine is the cornerstone of our program—which means incorporating the best of conventional and alternative medicine to optimize health. So people can die very young—but very late in life.”
TuneUpDocs starts with a free, simple, five to 10 minute online health quiz, which is used to create a personalized, comprehensive roadmap for overall health. TuneUpDocs provides individualized recommendations and health tips that will leave people feeling young and healthy, at any age. People can incorporate most of these recommendations on their own. The program will also provide the names of TuneUpDocs-trained health care practitioners nationwide.
“Although our modern world creates many health challenges—with new research showing a marked increase in the prevalence of fatigue, pain, arthritis and diabetes—it also offers new tools that can help people to thrive as never before,” said Dr. Teitelbaum. “From a comprehensive medical point of view, this is the best time ever to be alive.”
He added, “My car has 100,000 miles on it but feels like a new car simply because I give it regular tune-ups. Yet most people have never had a tune-up, which is why they feel old.”
