The Ultimate Prescription: What the Medical Profession isn't Telling You...Review by the Doctor

About the book:
Would you like to discover the powerful ways God is part of the healing process? Do you think the media, the government, or your doctor is telling you the whole truth when it comes to health care? Are you tired of taking medications that really don't fix the problem? In "The Ultimate Prescription," Dr. James Marcum, a board-certified cardiologist, in-demand speaker, and radio host, discusses these questions and many more from a biblical point of view. He encourages you to find the real answers about your health--and the health of your loved ones. Dr. Marcum explains what he believes is wrong with our current health care system, how to get back on track, and how the spiritual dimension of our health is often being ignored. Discover today the true path to healthy living in
The Ultimate Prescription.

Oh, my gosh. Somebody call the American Medical Association. Here is a doctor, a cardiologist, who is openly advocating a lifestyle based on the Commandments of God? Quick somebody lock this guy up. At least, take away his license to practice so that he cannot spew anymore of his hateful, non-scientific, bigoted rhetoric into the lives of humble, quiet and happy people who are just waiting to die at the end of a prescription.

In case you cannot tell, I feel a little strongly about this book. As a practicing physician myself, I get to see the damage done every day by medications. It is absolute truth to tell you that I have some patients come into my office who are taking upwards of 20+ medications per day, and they seem to be hating life. Dr. Markham obviously feels secure enough in his position that he can be honest about what he thinks. That might not sound particularly daring, except that I can tell you that we routinely have patients referred to our office for a therapy modality that we perform, because the medical doctor who is referring them cannot perform it himself for fear of "losing his credibility".

In The Ultimate Prescription, Dr. Markham not only outlines a way to live, but the reasons behind it, and he makes no apology for the fact that his spiritual beliefs match up with those that science is now beginning to become aware of.

Do not read this book if you are happy living a drug filled, pain filled mundane existence. Put it back on the shelf, and go take your Prozac. However, if you want to learn what health is actually about, and how happiness can only be achieved by living in harmony with what you are, and what you were created to be, then read this book. It will change your life.

  1. This sounds like a book I would really enjoy! I take a very natural approach to health/healing and I'm saddened by how many people pop pills just because it's easier than making lifestyle corrections. Pharmaceuticals are useful tools for treating disease, but they are way too over-prescribed! This doctor is brave for speaking out about this. The medical community isn't always kind to those who break the status quo.
