Change Your Story; Change Your Health: Dr. Mark William Cochran at TEDxSpokane

Posted by Bob Choat; August 19, 2013

From TEDx Talks…

Dr. Mark William Cochran is a holistic doctor who has traveled an amazing healing journey in his own life. For many years, the pain of inflammatory arthritis made it a painful challenge for him to climb just one flight of stairs. At age 47, Mark experienced a quantum shift in his health and at 49, ran his first marathon.

Dr. Mark is a thought leader in today’s healthcare arena, and brings a unique, empowering and sometimes controversial perspective to his writing. Some of his thoughts:

“The ‘Doctor Within’ is the most successful doctor in history.”
“We don’t have a healthcare system. We have a disease industry.”
“Germs are not the cause of disease.”
“If you want healthy kids, let them get dirty.”

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
