“The Doctor Of The Future Will Give No Medication But Will Interest His Patients In Diet, Care Of The Human Frame, And The Cause And Prevention Of Disease.” Thomas Edison As a student at Cornell University, James Cima discovered Edison’s quote and became inspired. Struggling with a debilitating genetic back problem, he knew that there had to be a better way to treat his condition. Pills and surgery couldn’t be the only answers
Desperate to find a way to cope, he began a journey that would change his life and the lives of millions of people. Today, Dr. Cima is the country’s leading proponent of a unique system he developed called the CimaSystem, based on Edison’s philosophy. The moment I read that quote I knew it would change the direction of my life forever states Dr. Cima. I was hooked, and I wanted to become the doctor of the future.
Although the definition was near perfect, there was no “how-to manual” that explained how the doctor of the future was going to treat and educate his/her patients. I devoted my life to this vision, and forty years later created a health and wellness program that educates doctors and patients alike, which lives up to Mr. Edison’s philosophy.
