Book Description

It is time for you to take care of yourself. Give yourself the attention and love you deserve. Your Care Plan will help you to decide to change your life, and it will be your guide to a healthy lifestyle. We nurses are professionals who treat, educate, and care for people every day at work. We are experts when it comes to wellness and disease prevention. We have a rewarding profession, but it can also be stressful at times. We cope with life and death issues, with loss and suffering, and we always want to do the best we can and provide high quality care. However, we can become so busy looking after others that we neglect to give ourselves the attention we deserve. In addition, we are as vulnerable to the pressures of modern life as anyone else is. We all live in a high stress world, where it is not easy to follow a healthy lifestyle, to find the time to exercise enough, or to eat fresh foods. Your Care Plan will help you to look after yourself, to be healthy and happy, and to advocate for a healthier world for all of us. Give yourself the gift of health and read Your Care Plan.

Editorial Reviews


San Francisco Book Review

After decades of ridiculous and sometimes dangerous fad diet trends, Your Care Plan, A nurse's guide to healthy living is a refreshingly sane look at diet, exercise, and your complete health...

Reviewed by: Nicole Sorkin, Pacific Book Review

Your Care Plan is beautifully illustrated and detailed without being overly technical.  Explanations are generally discerning and clear.  Julia Buss goes into extraordinary detail on the basics of eating, digestion, and exercise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Care Plan March 3, 2011
Taking care of yourself is much easier said than done! In Julia Buss' new book titled, "Your Care Plan: A Nurse's Guide to Healthy Living," she primarily helps nurses care for and understand themselves with the same expertise they give their patients. Nurses have an extremely stressful job with a lot of responsibility. Needing to work long hours, being continuously on call, having to bear witness to patients dying and feeling the loss, takes both a physical and mental toll. Nurses are exposed to a host of different diseases, which is why it's important to make sure they keep their immune system strong.

"Your Care Plan" is beautifully illustrated and detailed without being overly technical. Explanations are generally discerning and clear. Julia Buss goes into extraordinary detail on the basics of eating, digestion, and exercise. The first chapter contains a "lifestyle profile questionnaire" enabling one to make an initial assessment of one's overall health. It helps check the various elements of your state of being, such as metabolic type, flexibility, conditioning level and then prescribes a care plan to fit your profile. A large colorful galley layout makes her book seem less intimidating than medical textbooks.

Julia Buss has incorporated the Aeronautical Decision Making (DECIDE), commonly used by professional pilots to help with decision making when they encounter a problem. She has cleverly adopted this formula into her book helping the reader achieve a state of well-being. She also takes a serious look at overcoming the tendency for having too many fast-absorbed carbohydrates that increase your blood sugar and depress your metabolism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julia Buss and 'Careplan for Nurses' July 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a retired occupational health nurse of many years (I had the responsibility of running a department that provided OH services for 6,000 staff in the NHS) I was delighted to see Julia's excellent book. It is one that is invaluable for all those working in preventative medicine within the NHS. The health promotion department throughout all hospitals in the UK and the USA, should promote this book, and encourage all healthcare workers to adopt its regime. All primary care doctors would find the book invaluable. The reduction of sugar in the diet, and a change in eating habits, could make a huge difference to all those nurses who develop health problems due to obesity. Julia makes eating sound fun, and the photography makes one want to rush out and buy delicious vegetables and fruit etc. I wish that it had been available in my department, as a guide and teaching aid, when I was in practice.
