Prove Yourself Wrong: How to Do Your Own Research and Fight for Your Health

In an era of information overload, it is hard to discern what is truth and what is biased. To be your own health advocate, it is important to be open to all sides, then form an assessment and make an evaluation. I dip my toes into some controversial waters to look at a different perspective in order to take a deeper look at the pre-conceived notions I have about medical research.

Dr. Jim Meehan champions honest science deployed to create genuine health. He has advanced training and experience in ophthalmology, ocular inflammation and immunology, preventive medicine, addiction medicine, and endocrinology.

In this episode that aims to challenge listeners,  Dr. Meehan flips the narrative and calls into question many of our beliefs about medical research and encourages us to prove ourselves wrong and dig into the research in order to fight for our health.

This episode may make some listeners uncomfortable. But if we TRULY want to become personal health advocates and find true health, we need to do some digging. It doesn’t mean we agree with everything on all sides, but it does mean being open to other outlooks about health.
