At YoungerMeMD of Philadelphia, Dr. Varano and his team seek to optimize wellness and find the root cause of disease, particularly chronic conditions that are typically treated symptomatically in mainstream medicine. What would you prefer: to be cured of a disease or to never develop that disease in the first place? Not surprisingly, it is actually much easier—and healthier—to prevent disease than to cure it. However, the current medical care system is not designed to create wellness or effectively prevent disease. It is designed to diagnose and treat the symptoms of disease in the final or acute stages.
