Pioneering Naturopath, Originator of Blood Type Diet Urges Adoption of Holistic, Preventive Care to Lower Mounting U.S. Healthcare Costs

Dr. James L. D'Adamo Calls for a Healthcare Revolution With Naturopathic Lifestyle

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - March 14, 2011) -   As health insurance premiums and medical costs continue to rise, Dr. James L. D'Adamo -- internationally acclaimed naturopathic doctor, originator of the world-famous Blood Type Diet and director of the D'Adamo Institute for the Advancement of Natural Therapies -- is urging Americans to adopt preventive care to help avert chronic degenerative diseases. Considered the consummate statement on natural healing, Dr. D'Adamo's book "Just an Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure" (Hay House Publishers 2010, 256 pages $24.95) offers specific lifestyle choices on food and exercise regimens based on blood types, sub blood types, and RH factors specific to every individual.

The book's Foreword by Louise L. Hay -- New York Times bestselling author of "You Can Heal Your Life," with over 35 million copies in print -- and Hay House Publisher offers a commentary on how Dr. James D'Adamo helped her overcome her cancer.

"Very simply put, preventive health measures can reverse common ailments that are debilitating our nation -- from cancers, to diabetes, arthritis, to obesity and others -- and help decrease healthcare costs," states Dr. James L. D'Adamo, who has treated more than 50,000 patients worldwide. "Optimum health with Naturopathic care is not a quick fix. Blood types are a Truth of Nature and if followed, provide physical and spiritual health that nature has intended for us."

An April 2010 report by Aetna estimates that the "Annual health care spending in the United States is to surpass $4.2 trillion in 2018, up from $2.5 trillion in 2009 and $75 billion in 1970. Such spending accounts for 17% of GDP currently and is expected to reach 19% in 2018." The report further indicates high costs have resulted in 46.3 million uninsured of which 56 percent are ineligible for public programs and unable to afford coverage.

With nearly 70 percent of diseases caused by unhealthy lifestyle choices, reports by Partnership for Prevention indicate that "significant underuse of effective preventive care in the U.S. is resulting in lost lives, unnecessarily poor health and inefficient use of healthcare dollars." 

"Just an Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure" is available in bookstores as well as online at www.amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. For further information contact the D'Adamo Institute at info@dadamoinstitute.com or 603-430-7600. Join the conversation on naturopathic health with Dr. D'Adamo by following his Blog, on Twitter @DAdamoInstitute or Facebook.
