Cardiology is at the center of both disease and health. Of the many chronic conditions vexing society, heart and vascular function are likely the most susceptible to poor lifestyle decisions. Healthy, active people are very heart-aware, as well -- or they at least need to be. This relates to nutrition, activity, and all aspects of mindfulness and stress management. Integrated cardiology thus enjoys centrality in all forms of medicine, as it extends to opportunities in interventions and therapies. Cardiology is central to the integrative medicine movement worldwide. Occupational medicine is directly related to cardiology in that flexibility and strength are fundamental to active, productive lives. People do not die from problems of the muscles and joints, but pain and immobility take away much of life's purpose. They are immensely expensive -- in direct costs and the indirect costs of unemployment and underemployment. THN intends to leverage such activities and to enhance co-management of Western and Traditional Chinese and Eastern traditions and procedures. TNH is based on establishment of integrated cardiology centers as key elements in this plan.
There is no question but that medicine needs a comprehensive, integrated approach, but how is this to be achieved? THN will not be achieved through conferences and grand public commitments. It will be achieved by means of fluidity and dual control -- there is no other way. Once enabled through fluidity, the ability to meld knowledge with technology, conferences and grand public commitments will be beneficial.
People who are well are better customers than people who are ill. Providing OPL for the populace -- the products and services in question -- will be a magnificent commercial achievement. It is demand that drives the economy and when people see what they can have with respect to OPL, they will want more. This is not necessarily a material prospect per se where optimum performance is in question. OPL opportunities are endless.
