The End of Illness by Dr. David B. Angus is a work based upon treating the body as a complex interwoven system of interdependent parts. The author utilizes the power of data to decode the personal and molecular basis for diseases of all kinds. Plato once said that: “The part can never be well unless the whole is well. “

Dr. Angus employs a personal inventory to model health information for each patient. The inventory elicits very basic questions like how do you feel, what are your energy levels, how do you tolerate movement, what is your walking gait, and much more.

Next, the model focuses on classic inflammations in the body. An increase in the C-reactive protein indicates a risk of heart trouble eight years in advance! The rest of his tests include a comprehensive lipid panel, the metabolic panel, blood cell counts, the thyroid stimulating hormone, and the hemoglobin A1C moving average for diabetics and pre-diabetics.

Dr. Angus discusses power nutrients like Vitamin D. Deficiencies in Vitamin D have been shown to correlate with many disease processes like Parkinson’s. Increments in Vitamin D have produced reductions in the flu, breast cancer, stroke, blood sugar, and weight loss, to mention just a few. Although Dr. Angus supports the idea of some targeted vitamin supplementation, he warns against blocking the ability of the body to control itself naturally. Dr. Angus explains the virtues of aspirin, statins and the flu vaccine in his book.

The presentation explains the top five disease killers. The order of diseases that kill starts with heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic respiratory disease, and diabetes including untreated or undiagnosed diabetes. Dr. Angus utilizes his model to gather the personal data on the inflammatory components of these diseases to reduce or eliminate their deadly consequences to patients over a lifetime.

The End of Illness is an important medical resource for patients in order to detect, treat and ultimately prevent the worst consequences of a number of dreaded diseases. The presentation is easy to read and understand. Patients would benefit immensely by utilizing this book in conjunction with routine medical examinations, and discussions with their private physicians
