Friday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

What wellness trends will be big in 2024? The Ozempic “ripple effect” and more expert predictions
Experts predict a resurgence in weight loss-focused trends in 2024, prompted by drugs like Ozempic becoming more mainstream. Celebrity endorsements have helped these new weight-loss drugs gain traction, and their popularity has spurred interest in supplements making weight-loss claims, such as berberine, touted online as “nature’s Ozempic.” The trend is expected to influence food, beverage, and dietary supplement markets, with snack-makers and fast-food chains likely offering smaller portions and more nutritious ingredients. After years of focusing on mental health, physical health is returning as a top New Year’s resolution. Additionally, wearable health tech and artificial intelligence are expected to play a larger role in health monitoring and screening. There’s also a predicted shift towards wellness strategies backed by clinical studies and research, with consumers becoming more discerning about online mental health content. Social activities and in-person therapy sessions are anticipated to gain popularity, reflecting a desire for more authentic and engaging experiences. Overall, there’s a continued focus on longevity and self-care, with plant-based eating, sleep health, and gut health remaining important for living better for longer.

Weight Loss Drugs Out of Reach for Millions on Medicare Promising new obesity drugs like Wegovy and Zepbound are inaccessible to millions of older Americans due to Medicare’s prohibition on covering such medications. Despite rising obesity rates among older adults, Medicare’s decades-old law prevents coverage for these weight loss drugs. The debate intensifies as lawmakers and drugmakers advocate for change. These drugs, costing up to $1,300 monthly, have shown significant weight loss results and reduced risk of heart problems. However, the high cost of covering these drugs under Medicare poses a financial challenge. Legislation is being introduced to allow Medicare coverage for these drugs, amidst growing evidence of their health benefits. The decision faces hurdles due to the potential impact on Medicare’s finances, with studies showing both potential savings and costs for the government.

Hi Dr. Bell! I met you last September at the HealingStrong conference. I have since been diagnosed with lyme disease (bartonella strain). Do you treat that with silver? Thank you!
