Description

Book Description
What is wrong with this picture? We live in a society where birth takes place in the hospital with induction of labor, routine episiotomy, and cesarean section. Infant formula, antibiotics, and vaccines are given routinely to our children. Young women are on synthetic hormones to prevent pregnancy and then placed on fertility drugs to achieve pregnancy. Our children are medicated in order to learn in school. As we approach menopause we are shifted to another synthetic hormone to prevent symptoms of premenopause and menopause. All along our population is diet conscious, yet growing heavier and heavier.
This "modern" medical care has produced a country (America) which ranks 20th, among the top 20 industrial nations with regard to infant and maternal mortality, in spite of spending more money on medical care than any other country in the world.

Most doctors will try to scare you about different diseases. Dr. Eisenstein will try to scare you about the treatments doctors will try to impose upon you. Through the scientific literature, we see that in most cases, time-honored, low-tech methods, in conjunction with nature are still superior to the high-tech, high intervention approach.

Dr. Eisenstein is the CEO of Homefirst® Health Services and the talk show host for the nationally syndicated radio show "Family Health Forum". Under his direction Homefirst® has delivered over 14,000 babies at home and cared for over 60,000 mothers, fathers, children and extended family members. Homefirst®'s greatest pleasure has been to provide the opportunity for its families to grow and enrich their lives with the knowledge that they are taking charge over their health and maximizing their greatest health potential. Relying on his more than 27 years as a clinical physician and now also as an attorney, Dr. Eisenstein brings you the facts and figures why we must strive for evidence based scientific medicine, not the unscientific medicine which is being practiced today.

Safer Medicine will change forever the way you look at medicine and its myriad of procedures.


From the Author
We, Americans, worship technology and believe in using the newest, costliest methods available. The internet has made it possible to easily research and evaluate the most current scientific literature. I was privileged to have had Doctors Robert S. Mendelsohn, Herbert Ratner, Gregory White and Beatrice Tucker, as mentors and my goal, in following with their teachings, is to share vital clinical evidence based scientific literature with you and comment on the studies ("M.E. Comments"). Most doctors will try to scare you about different diseases, I will try to scare you about the treatments doctors will try to impose upon you. Through the scientific literature, we see that in most cases, time-honored, low-tech methods, in conjunction with nature are still superior to the high-tech, high intervention approach.

Since 1973 he has been in private medical practice and is currently the Medical Director of Homefirst® Health Services, the largest physician attended home birth service in the country. In his 27 years in medicine, he and his practice have delivered over 14,000 babies at home, as well as cared for over 60,000 parents, grandparents and children. Now, Dr. Eisenstein and his practice are delivering second generation babies for women who themselves were born at home with his practice.

He is a member of the National Honor Society. He is a recipient of the Howard Fellowship, Health Professional Scholarship, University of Illinois School of Medicine Scholarship, and is a member of the Dean's List at John Marshall Law School.

He is on the Professional Board of the Family Life League, Council for the Jewish Elderly, Task Force Council on Education for Public Health - Medical College of Wisconsin, and on the Editorial Board for "Child and Family Magazine". He is the author of the award winning book "Give Birth at Home With The Home Birth Advantage," as well as the editor for the "Family Health Forum" newsletter. His medical film "Primum Non Nocere" (Above All Do No Harm), a documentary on home birth, was an award winner at the Chicago Film Festival in 1987.

Some of his guest appearances include: the "Phil Donahue Show", "Milt Rosenberg Show", "Today in Chicago", "Ask the Expert", "Daybreak", "Oprah Winfrey Show", "Ed Schwartz Radio Show".

Since 1987, his weekly radio show "Family Health Forum", has aired in the Chicagoland area. In September 1998 "Family Health Forum" became nationally syndicated. In the live call-in format, all listener's comments, questions or medical experiences are welcome by Dr. Eisenstein.

Dr. Eisenstein's philosophy comes from his years in medicine, combined with his years as a husband, father, and grandfather (he has six children and six grandchildren).
