Your health is your most important asset. Without it, you couldn’t achieve your goals, reach your highest potential, or protect those you love most.
But have you ever stopped to ask yourself how well you actually invest in it?
Frustrated with the lack of emphasis placed on preventive care and life-long wellness by the medical industry, James McDonough knew he could be doing more to optimize his mind and body.
Out of a desire for increased longevity, improved performance and truly comprehensive care, EDISON BIO was born.

You have the power to take control of your wellness. Below, learn why you should be investing in comprehensive care to expand your health potential.
1. Traditional Healthcare Is Falling Behind
Despite major advancements in technology over the last few decades, the traditional healthcare system has failed to keep up with leading medical innovations.
The last time you visited your physician, what sort of technology did they use to evaluate you?
Full-body MRIs, genomics, cancer blood tests and maybe sleep analysis?
Or did they use the same outdated approach, examining you with devices such as tongue depressor sticks and the stethoscope—a tool invented all the way back in 1816.
It shouldn’t be surprising that the traditional healthcares system fails to prioritize comprehensive care when most primary care visits last fewer than five minutes altogether.
2. A Comprehensive Baseline Helps You Monitor Changes
It’s hard to know how your health is progressing if you don’t know where it started in the first place.
Advancements in medical technology allow diagnostic testing to go well beyond that of a simple lab draw. With these innovations, you can access so much information about your wellness. In doing so, you also establish a comprehensive baseline for the current state of your mind plus body.
Through the collection of millions of health data points, you can know exactly what is occurring in your body and where with incredible detail. This knowledge then allows you to monitor any changes in your health results and can inform any decision making moving forward.
So many people only ever understand a small fragment of their health story. But with EDISON BIO’s comprehensive Executive Health exam, patients can gain the most extensive and thorough picture of their mind and body possible.
3. Preventing Problems Is More Effective Than Treating Them
In 2014, 60% of Americans suffered from at least one chronic disease. But only 8% of adults were receiving all of the recommended preventive services at the time.
The traditional healthcare system in the U.S. focuses on reactionary care rather than prioritizing a proactive approach in the first place.
However, treating diseases after they’ve developed enough to become life-threatening is much more difficult than treating them at their onset (or preventing them in the first place).
For example only 1 out of 5 people who receive a late-stage cancer diagnosis will survive past five years.
However, with comprehensive care, you can know exactly what is happening in your body and where. With this information, you are then able to prevent diseases proactively and treat them at their onset if necessary.
4. You Can Understand Your Opportunities To Optimize
Even if you don’t suffer from any disease or illness, do you know how to become the healthiest and highest achieving version of yourself?
Comprehensive care provides you with the information necessary to increase your longevity and improve your performance through personalized diet, exercise and lifestyle recommendations.
These recommendations are based upon your personalized health results and tailored to your unique body.
Too often traditional health systems prescribe a one-size-fits-all approach to wellness. However, in order to truly optimize your health, you need individualized care. All of your personal health data should be taken into account when deciding how to optimize your wellness.
EDISON BIO’s comprehensive care goes beyond simply ensuring you don’t suffer from disease. It also equips you with the knowledge and tools necessary to reach your health goals and expand your health potential.
