HCI Book Review: The Great American Health Hoax by Raymond Francis

Raymond Francis, the author of such books as Never Be Sick Again, Never Feel Old Again, and Never Fear Cancer Again, once more shares his knowledge with readers in The Great American Health Hoax. This time, Francis tackles the broken health care system and the reasons why chronic illness runs rampant, such as changes to our diet, environment, behavior, and lifestyle. The Great American Health Hoax examines important factors that contribute to our global health crisis, including:


  • Sedentary lifestyles
  • Toxic foods
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Pollution



Francis shares his personal story of chronic illness and provides readers with insightful and indispensable information on how to get well, stay well, and live healthy and happy. The following is a brief excerpt:




Health care in America is a hoax—it is pretending to be something it is not. This hoax is having a devastating impact on our health and quality of life, and it is threatening to destroy our economy and impoverish our people.


The definition of health care is “the maintenance or restoration of health.” But our health care system is not about maintaining or restoring health—it’s about managing the symptoms of disease. This is disease care, not health care! Managing the symptoms of disease does not prevent or cure disease. We need to transform to a true health care system, and it is up to you to help make that a reality.


Practitioners in our so-called health care system wait for disease to happen and then suppress the symptoms with toxic chemicals and invasive, health-damaging surgery. Because the underlying causes of ill health are not addressed, health is not maintained, people get sick and stay sick, and the costs skyrocket. Worse, the treatments themselves cause even more disease, pain, suffering, and death. You end up trading your original problem for a whole new set of problems. Instead of maintaining or restoring health, our health care system is a hoax that creates and perpetuates disease at enormous cost to society. 


Most Americans today are trapped in a disease-care system that has little to do with health—or with science. We have been tricked into believing that disease care is health care and that chronic illnesses cannot be prevented or cured. This ineffective, expensive, and outmoded approach to health care must be discarded. Health is a choice, and you can learn how to choose it. The truth is that you can prevent or reverse almost any disease—without toxic drugs or surgery—by supporting the body’s own innate ability to heal itself. To teach you what you need to know, this book offers a simple model of health that can empower almost anyone to get well, stay well, and never be sick again. 


The Great American Health Hoax introduces you to a way of life that can become your highway to health. It will attempt to persuade you that you don’t have to be sick. First, there is no fun in being sick, and second, we are going broke trying to pay for the cost of disease. As individuals and as a society, health is the solution. But it’s a solution you must choose. After you decide to choose health, you have to learn how to achieve it. Fortunately, learning how to be healthy has never been easier. This book makes health simple. 


By providing you with a simple road map to health, you can get well, stay well, and never be sick again. The goal is to educate a sufficient number of people like you so that we can put an end to our epidemic of chronic disease and provide a solution to the biggest social and economic problem of the twenty-first century—the problem of global aging.
