Welcome to Health in our Own Hands

Health in our Own Hands is a web resource site for staying (or getting) healthy in this challenging, rapidly changing world.

Medical care is expensive and often addresses problems once they’ve become severe.Health in our Own Hands helps us know how to stay out of the medical-insurance-drug system. The time we take to stay well will pay off — it takes much more time to be sick, wait in waiting rooms and deal with bureaucracy, much less to fight with your insurer to get the care you need.

So invest now in staying out of all that confusion and frustration – and have a great time keeping well.
