   With 47 million Americans uninsured and health-
    care costs still rising, hi-tech diagnostic testing
    and drug and surgical intervention are
    unaffordable for many.
   This, combined with persistent reports of
     prescription drug risks, will lead to a revolt
     against our drug-dependent and invasive medical
     culture.
   Look for Americans to start taking much more
    responsibility for their own health and attaining
    health benefits through the integration of diverse
    therapies and better lifestyle choices

     Trend Tracking
Practitioners of the healing arts…such as chiropractors,
  naturopaths,
  and anyone who can teach people how to get and stay
  healthy …will enjoy booming business.
Entrepreneurs who provide simple but effective
 remedies or high-quality ingredients for these
 remedies will gain the greatest share of the expanding
 “Heal Yourself Health Care” market,
perhaps the biggest growth
 industry of the next decade.
Even people who have never considered a career in
  health care might consider this field.
