About the Book

The Origin of Disease is a new vision for understanding chronic disease. It puts medical knowledge together in an original way, and challenges the reader to think of chronic disease, in new ways. An unmistakable pattern emerges to explain the origins of chronic diseases. The book challenges doctors to abandon bias and false assumptions; abandon the diagnosis of symptoms, findings, and syndromes; fight against the influence of money; and return to the Art of Medicine—to diagnose the root causes of chronic disease. It challenges doctors and researchers to open their minds to new creative solutions for chronic disease, using tools and medications already available. The thought provoking book has the potential to change how medicine views chronic disease. It gives hope to people with chronic disease; and ways to improve health and extend longevity. It is a book for everyone—doctors, researchers and patients alike! Simplicity supports truth!

About the Author

Christopher Merchant has been a family practice physician, for forty-two years. Carolyn Merchant has been an attorney for thirty-five years. They thought, discussed, observed, and researched their ideas on the origin of disease, for four decades. They offer experiences, observational science, research, and conclusions about the causes of chronic disease, which support a principle of the whole in chronic diseases. They challenge the medical system to think differently and to do better. The Merchants’ take a risk by writing this book. Understanding who they are makes clear they had no choice but to speak, to help others. Their personal history and evolution of thinking explains why it is their destiny to speak now! If you want more answers from your doctor, new creative ways to diagnose and treat chronic disease, for yourself or a loved one, and if you want healthy aging, the book is a must read!
