The Doctor Is In: A 7-Step Prescription for Optimal Wellness
I highly recommend this book! Being a Health/Physical Education teacher, I especially appreciate the information Dr. Stork shares in his new book. It is packed with simple, practical ways to improve your health. It is about how YOU have the power to take control of YOUR health. Dr. Stork discusses daily practices that are doable, and most importantly, sustainable. He also explains the difference between a diet, and a lifestyle. He has seen firsthand, working in the emergency department, the ill effects of living an unhealthy lifestyle. His inspiration for this book came from those experiences, which were so very much preventable.
I especially liked the top 5 web shortcuts he references. The websites he suggests, and uses himself, takes the guesswork out of trying to find reputable health resources. At the end of the book, he also gives a great suggestion. He advises getting Post-its and marking the "Quick and Easy Takeaway" pages at the end of each chapter for those moments when you are in need of some encouragement, which we all need at times.
I was lucky enough to have attended one of Dr. Stork's book signings. He is absolutely one of the kindest, smartest, and sincerest human beings you will ever meet. If you have the opportunity to meet him, I would highly suggest that too!
