Currently, France ranks number one (1). The question is: What separates France from thirty-six other countries? The answer is not as complicated as you might think. France practices a modality call Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM).

EBM is the conscientious, judicious and explicit use of the best current scientific evidence in treating the person. EBM use of best current evidence both invalidates previously accepted tests and treatments and replaces them with new ones that are more accurate and safer. EBM is medicine based on clinical evidence as opposed to anecdotal evidence. In simplest terms, evidence-based medicine is health care based on the best available science and not on anecdotes, outdated education and training, financial incentives and rewards, or peer pressure.

The next time you or a loved one seeks medical care, stop and ask these questions:

o Is this provider educated in evidence-based medicine?

o Does this provider utilize evidence-based medicine, including Holistic Health Care–HHC?

o Is the source of the dis-ease being treated or only the symptoms?

o Is the treatment being used because it has the highest reimbursement rate?

Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) describes a $228.9 billion U.S. marketplace for goods and services focused on health, the environment, social justice, personal development and sustainable living. The consumers attracted to this market have been collectively referred to as Cultural Creatives and represent a sizable group in the U.S. Approximately 36 percent of the adults or 60 million people, are currently embracing a holistic lifestyle. theworldthinks
