Strongly supported with documented studies, patient stories from her private practice, and examples from her personal life, this book is based in data yet easy to read and understand. Her friendly tone makes this relatable and accessible and it’s obvious that she is passionate about her subject matter.
After starting with a primer on what makes good science and the differing solutions offered by both conventional and complementary/alternative medicine today, she emphasizes the importance of the big three – nutrition, sleep, and exercise. She clearly illustrates how these affect our health, including their impact on conditions such as cardiovascular health, type II diabetes, depression, and irritable bowel syndrome. She then builds on this foundation to show how making behavioral changes based in self-compassion can enable anyone to realize improved health for themselves. Her closing chapters are encouraging and empowering for anyone who has felt discouraged in past attempts at wellness as she shines a light on many of the faulty thinking patterns that hold us back from reaching our goals.
The only pre-requisites for using this book as a tool in your path to wellness are an open mind and a willingness to take responsibility for your own life! I just finished reading it today and am already starting to use these principles in my own journey to better physical and emotional health.
From the beginning, it held my attention. It was an easy, but intelligent read. She didn't need to use big words or complex sentences to sound like some educated big shot. She cared that you understood what she was trying to tell you. It's written in a casual, informal, and entertaining style. After all, the book was written for you, for you to understand, and for you to learn from, not for her to advance her status in the profession. Try reading some published scientific papers and pretty soon your brain hurts. This isn't like that.
Even though I'm also a health nut, I'm learning a lot from this book. Even if you're like the Health Ranger, you can learn more. There are things anyone at any level can learn from this book. I wish I could get everyone I know to read this book.
Not only does it teach you how to take care of yourself, it helps you figure out what stands in the way of your success. Even if you think you have it all together, you can still learn from this book. I know a chief operating officer of a large company that could really use this book. (Ok, I can't fix him, but I can fix me and how I react to his bad business decisions.) None of us have it so together that we don't have room for improvement.
