Sometimes books written by Dr.'s (Phil and Oz come to mind) can be a bit bossy, and tedious. Not the case with Dr. Jim Nicolai's book Integrative Wellness Rules. He speaks in a way that's easy to understand. Refrains from getting too preachy, and he entertains without belaboring his point, and wearing out his welcome with the reader. The book is divided up by subject, with each subject containing several rules, or theories. Each section of the book gets right to the point without wasting any time. It's a great collection of, not just, Dr. Nicolai's knowledge, but also, many leaders in the health industry who have inspired him. Leaders like Anthony Robbins, Bill Phillips, and Dr. Andrew Weil are cited and given the respect they deserve. Dr. Nicolai describes health as our destination, and wellness is the road map to get there. That is really what this book is, a road map. It's a reference manual, you are going to want to keep on hand while planning, or fine tuning your fitness journey. Whether you're just beginning that trip, or you're an old pro, Integrative Wellness Rules will be of value to you. It's very easy to get caught up in one aspect of wellness, at the expense of others. The ideas, and rules taught in this book can help you keep the whole map in perspective. It's become popular nowadays for fitness professionals to talk about, not just nutrition and exercise, but a lifestyle change. Dr. Jim Nicolai can show you exactly what to do to create that lifestyle. I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes.

Let me begin by saying that I'm a follower, of the teachings of Andrew Weil, and have been for the last decade. I imagine this book was recommended for me based on my past purchases. Now, as a long time vegan and " naturalist" I'm always open to learning more and more about the anti- imfammatory diet, however, I purchased this book more for guidance on how to make certain changes and be my best in life. After reading this book, I feel I have some tools. I' m not on the same page as the author for certain things ( I.e. He says something to the effect of " Everything happens for a reason" and is a bit more religious than I), however, my journey through this book has made me feel empowered to slowly but surely make certain changes. In addition to the stellar content of this book,another wonderful treat is the delivery of the information. Dr. Jim ( if I may call him that!) seems like a sensitive and caring soul who aims to be his best for himself, his family, his clients,etc. I particularly enjoyed being taken through his day ( which is quite active!). I found him to be inspiring and well intentioned without being over the top. He was reminding me of my husband as I was reading! Speaking of which, I hope he will read this book as well. I believe most folks can gain something by reading "Integrative Wellness Rules" In closing, I'd like to say that if I ever have the cash to spend a few days at Miraval, I'd be appreciative for the chance to meet with Dr. Nicolai. I wish him continued success in his writing endeavors.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I thought this book looked really cool, but it seems like it might be a bunch of blog entries? The topics are motivation, assessing spirituality, emotional needs, nutrition, vitamins and supplements, and exercise. There are about 5-10 entries of 1-2 pages under each topic. They were snippets about things like walking your dog for exercise, taking omega 3s, believing in magic, and eating olive oil. I didn't find many things useful to me and didn't see any new information. I'm in my early 30s but I think my mom might really like this book. It seems like kind of a beginner's guide for boomers who want to learn about wellness. Sincerely - I think this would be great for older readers!

I've taken an interest in the whole integrative medicine. This book is a very easy to read guide. The chapters are super short which makes it very easy to pick it up and read. I was able to squeeze in a few chapters here and there throughout the day. Sure, it's nothing earth-shatteringly new, but I found it to be a helpful reminder of the simple things I can do to help enjoy a more balanced, and helpful life. Some of the tips may be common sense things: making good food choices, learning how to handle stress, etc, but I think it's good to be reminded of these recommendations from time to time. If you're already living a healthy lifestyle (nutrition, stress relief, exercise, etc.) you might not learn many new things, but I still think it's a good resource for those who are just starting out on the journey to wellness.

If you have NEVER read a book on Holistic Health before, you might find something useful in this book. It contains advice that anyone who has inquired into vitamins and healthy foods would already know such as take lots of vitamin D, drink Green Tea, use olive oil, eat 70% dark chocolate, cut back on sugar, exercise and reduce stress. You don't need this book to find all of that and most chapters are only one or two pages long, so you won't find lots of great new ideas, recipes or diets to try. What little diet advice he gives is also not very useful. He likes filtered water and suggests you drink it from a steel bottle. I think anyone not living under a rock now knows plastic bottles, especially those left in hot places frequented by runners are not good. But there is no advice or comment on distilled or spring water. Everyone says their water is filtered. He recommends Bulgar wheat, pasta cooked al dente (doesn't say why) and says don't eat too much sugar or corn syrup...DUH...Who doesn't know that? His "anti-inflammatory diet" in the back is not really a diet at all. It is just a list of very general recommendations. If you want real anti-inflammatory diet info checkout Perricone's books.
