My name is Howard Jacobson. I write, speak, teach, coach, and consult on health and wellness. I’ve collaborated with some of the most courageous and brilliant minds in the research and medical fields: T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, Garth Davis, MD, author of the upcoming Proteinaholic, and Pam Popper, author of Solving America’s Healthcare Crisis, among others.
I have degrees in health studies and public health, and I spent 15 years in the business trenches learning the marketing secrets of the world’s most ethical and sleaziest industries.
Now I help people make informed decisions about treatment options and take control of their health destiny.
The saddest phrase I hear in my work is “If I had only known then what I know now.”
I hear it when people discover facts too late, after they’ve made decisions based on incorrect, incomplete, or misleading data:
the drug they’ve been taking for years has damaged them permanently, and they would have gotten much better results from lifestyle changes.
the screening test that “revealed” their disease has a 73% false positive rate.
the surgery they were pressured into doesn’t reduce pain, and in fact makes full recovery less likely.
Let’s Banish the “If I Had Only Knowns”
I’ve made it my mission to give people accurate health information in time, so they can avoid needless pain and suffering. So they can live full, vibrant, long, and joyful lives. So they can be in control of their health destinies.
