As a physician, Dr. Mimi Guarneri hears patients say over and over, “I would gladly give up my wealth just to have back my health.”
Every day, 2,600 Americans die of cardiovascular disease — and despite remarkable interventional and surgical procedures, over 650,000 new heart attacks occur annually. But, while practicing conventional medicine, Dr. Guarneri came to realize that the body has a secret language of healing, and that surgery does not address the root cause of illness.
Dr. Guarneri’s program, Live Better Now with Mimi Guarneri, MD, translates the science of health, healing and longevity into practical answers to lead viewers to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. She blends modern science and ancient wisdom to offer steps to awaken the healing potential of our bodies.
Live Better Now is a comprehensive, step-by-step program that addresses everything from the foods you eat, the relationships you cultivate and the way you work and play, to the amount of stress in your life and how you can transform it.
Treating disease after it occurs is not the solution. Dr. Guarneri’s philosophy fuses the latest in science and technology with the deeper realization that the human health is more than physical. Macro- and micro-nutrition, supplements, stress management, enhanced resiliency, and spirituality are just a few of the key components to health and longevity. Live Better Now provides the knowledge and guidance necessary to get on the greater path of healing.
Board-certified in cardiovascular disease, internal medicine, nuclear cardiology and integrative holistic medicine, Dr. Mimi Guarneri is a founder and the president of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine. She serves on the founding board of the American Board Physician Specialties in Integrative Medicine and is a clinical associate professor at University of California, San Diego. Dr. Guarneri is the co-founder and medical director of Guarneri Integrative Health, Inc. at Pacific Pearl La Jolla in California, where her clinical practice and education and research center are located.
The pledge event for this pledge program was produced by KQED and hosted by Greg Sherwood with Dr. Guarneri in the breaks with Greg.
I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
