My name is Dr Zsolt Zátrok.
Welcome to drzatrok.com! This is a blog where I write the articles and record the films myself.
I graduated from medical school in 1991 and worked in a hospital in the department of internal medicine and cardiology for many years. Many of the diseases treated in these departments are so-called chronic diseases, which are now considered ‘treatable’ with lifelong medication, although this does not cure the problem itself.
After several years of work, I became convinced that the “root” of chronic diseases lies in the patient’s lifestyle, and that if this does not change, there will be no sense of well-being despite lifelong drug therapy.
This led me to leave the traditional medical profession. I do not prescribe, I do not examine, I do not recommend drugs or surgery.
Healing at home? How?
If you have a complaint, the first thing you should do is ask for an investigation to find out what is causing it. The most effective way to eliminate it is to treat the cause itself, not just the symptom!
Did you know that most chronic conditions can be treated safely and effectively in the comfort of your own home? Today you no longer have to “run” to the doctor’s office every day for a few minutes of treatment!
It’s a shame if you haven’t heard about it! The potential of medical devices developed for home use is still unknown to a large proportion of doctors. That’s why they don’t mention it to you.
But there are simple yet effective home remedies for most chronic conditions.
My blog will help you find your way around the many different treatment options, methods and devices. My writings and films will help you learn how to use them safely and effectively.
Lifestyle as the main medicine
Medical devices are only one group of therapeutic options.
There is an even more effective way to heal!
Today, I am convinced that the majority of chronic diseases today – such as musculoskeletal problems, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, allergies, autoimmune diseases, etc. – are not cures, but lifelong medications. Drugs, surgery, office treatments may help, but they are usually less beneficial than lifestyle changes.
Yes! It is medically proven that a healthy lifestyle can prevent and reverse many diseases at an early stage, and even help recovery in severe conditions.
Lifestyle change does not happen in 5 minutes. It can take months or even a few years to make a noticeable difference. But the results achieved in this way are real (as opposed to symptomatic treatment)
In today’s busy doctors’ surgeries, doctors simply don’t have the time to explain:
you can do much more for your health yourself than you can expect from drugs and surgery!
They don’t have time to tell you that there are effective and less risky ways of doing things other than drugs and surgery. Methods that you can use yourself, in the comfort of your own home. They don’t require the presence of a doctor, but they are safe and effective (even more effective than drugs).
Of course, it’s not easy! Chronic diseases can only be improved by methods that YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING about!
You have already experienced that sitting in an armchair and “popping a few pills” is a futile exercise in waiting for a miracle! Most drug treatments are designed to make the symptoms go away, not to cure or eliminate the disease for good. Despite years of taking them, you will get little or no improvement (see my article on the Dogshit Strategy) or worse because of the side effects.
It is lifestyle that can make a radical difference. Besides, it’s up to you, you design it, you implement it. If you don’t, you have yourself to blame for most illnesses, and you can usually only ‘chase’ the symptoms.
In my articles and films I talk about what can lead to a health problem, how to avoid it, how to fix it or how to treat it.

My past as a doctor
I graduated from a medical university in Hungary and then worked as a doctor in the cardiology-internal medicine department of a city hospital.
From the very beginning, my hobby was researching the relationship between technology and medicine and the scope of the applications of technology in this field. That’s why I changed careers and worked as a medical consultant at GE Healthcare, one of the world’s largest medical devices manufacturing companies.
A few years later, as managing director, I took over the Hungarian subsidiary of the German Dräger Medical, a medical devices manufacturing company, which is considered the biggest “name” in the surgical instrument and intensive care equipment manufacturing industry. I ran the company for 10 years.
From 2012 onwards, I follow my own path, namely I share the knowledge that I have acquired during my career. Since then, I have worked as a trainer, expert and healthcare investment advisor around the world, including England, Germany, Spain, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Croatia, Jordan, Romania, Malaysia, and of course in my country, Hungary.
My past as a sportsman
In my youth, I had sports/athletic ambitions. My multiple Hungarian champion athlete self also “hides” behind my sports articles.
Although I quitted competitive sports at the age of 21, but have never stopped doing sports and my passion for the sports since then. Even today, I train 4-5 times a week, cycling an average of 40-50 km each time, mostly through the woods and fields, cross-country.
So as a doctor, I know the physiological background, and as a former athlete, I know exactly what kind of training work it takes for someone to achieve outstanding results. Well, I also know what problems the intense training load could lead to.
There is a constant change going on
In recent decades, people’s lifestyles, physical activities, and diets have changed radically, which have led to the appearance of new types of diseases instead of the old ones. Their treatment options are also different from what could be applied 30-40 years ago.
Today, you can expect improvement not only from medications or surgeries, but you can also actively contribute to your own health.
About 80% of today’s diseases could be avoided, and if we would fail to prevent them, they could be stopped and reversed with early treatment. This aim requires other modern methods.
I write about these new technical possibilities in my blog.
I have both medical experience and medical technology experience. I synthesize the knowledge of two separate professions: I am a doctor and I also have a high level of knowledge of technology. I know what a doctor’s job is, I know about the diseases, I know exactly what it means to cure, while I also keep myself up-to-date in detail regarding the latest technologies and their applications.
The dual knowledge makes my writings special, you can find both the doctor and the technologist speaking to you through them. That’s why I believe I can help you!
