In Primal Prescription, authors Doug McGuff, MD and Robert P. Murphy, PhD, combine their expertise in economics and medicine to offer a shocking, disturbing, and ultimately enlightening view into America’s health care system.
This book equips you with both the knowledge to understand the health care conundrum and the tools for navigating your way of it.
McGuff and Murphy offer an evidence-based “game plan” for taking control of your own medical care, protecting yourself and your loved ones regardless of what the future holds for the rest of the nation.
It fills in the medical gaps left by The Primal Blueprint, and in so doing, completes the vision the authors set into motion years ago.
