About the authors...

About the Author

 
Michele Howe is a women's health writer and a book reviewer for Publishers Weekly, BookReporter.com and Retail & Resources as well as the author of eleven books for women. Michele's newest title, Burdens Do a Body Good: Meeting Life's Challenges with Strength (and Soul), was released in May 2010 by Hendrickson Publishers. After having undergone four shoulder surgeries, Michele saw the need for a comprehensive women's inspirational health-related book co-authored with her Toledo orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Foetisch.
 
Dr. Christopher A. Foetisch is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine with a practice emphasis involving the shoulder and knee. Dr. Foetisch received his medical degree from the Medical College of Ohio, completed his Orthopedic Residency at the Medical College of Ohio, as well as a Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute in Van Nuys, California. He has been in private practice for the past ten years and his office is located at the Toledo Clinic, Toledo, Ohio.
 
The authors first met when Michele walked into the office of Dr. Foetisch as a patient with a shoulder injury. Five years and four surgeries later, this book is the result of their doctor-patient relationship and the writing collaboration they developed to provide fresh awareness to women's health issues nationwide. It brings together Michele's experience as an author of books that help women live with strength and grace (including Going It Alone and Still Going It Alone) with Dr. Foetisch's experience as an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and writes on women's health issues.

Once in a while, a book comes along that deeply impacts our life. Its message can inspire us to make a quantum leap and break the barriers we face. PRESCRIPTION FOR LIFE is one of those books.

Its message is compelling and will empower you to move beyond the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges you face.

I believe that this book will help people find the way out of their ruts and to begin living life not just surviving it.

Michele shares her valuable medical experiences as an observer and a patient so what better than both perspectives. These are very practical life tips from someone with great experiences to share. As we age we need insights like these to know what to do to prevent issues, where to go when issues arise, and how to deal with them during and after. Michele has been doing this a long time so her words come with vast experience. Take a little time and invest in your health by reading Michele's newest thoughts accompanied by her surgeon's thoughts.

This book definitely brings a fresh perspective to dealing with the many challenges that life throws our way. As a middle aged woman, I especially appreciated the many preventative health tips that encourage holistic wellness. Too often I feel overloaded when reading health & wellness articles. Many offer too much complicated information, yet these authors offered clear and concise helpful messages on so many areas that I personally am dealing with in mid-life. Feeling more hopeful about being able to take it a day at a time and make little positive choices for my life!

Last month I had the good fortune of interviewing Michele Howe on my internet radio show Heart & Soul. ([...]) We discussed, among other topics, what led her and her co-author Dr. Christopher Foetisch to write this informative, inspirational book and how they hope it will encourage others to persevere. Michele speaks and writes from personal experience. Prescription for Life is a reflection of her own challenges as well as her interviews of many other women who ardently seek, and struggle to find, optimal health. Both the writing style and the substantive suggestions will delight and inspire you. Enjoy.

This little gem of a book has a unique way of presenting information to the reader. A special blend of wisdom for the reader is the result. I've never read a book that has the patient's viewpoint and experience combined with the doctor's collaborative viewpoint and expertise. To top it off, we have a patient/insider's view of surgery and the brutally honest (and necessary) truth from a physician who struggles with patients who don't always do their part to heal. Read this book!

Great insight, practical suggestions for the best 'healthy you' you can be! I enjoy the combination of Ms. Howe and Dr. Foetisch work together. This was very helpful, worth rereading, underlining and giving. Thank you for the labor of wisdom on the pages. Wonderful
