If there is something that most people can count on in the world, it s that they ll be sitting with poor posture behind a desk or laboring in an unnatural or awkward position for much of their workweek. Of course that s after they wake up from the same amount of sleep they usually allow themselves, and after consuming the same quick breakfast or, in some instances, no breakfast at all. Why change what works? Your routine is comfortable and it has served you well. Or has it not? Could that dull, radiating ache in your neck or sharp, piercing pain in your lower back be attributed to your job, your habits, or even your nutrition? What can you change and improve in your life? Keys to an Amazing Life: Secrets of the Cervical Spine by Kenneth K. Hansraj, M.D., is an outstanding work that will be of interest to virtually all people of all walks of life. Published by Dee Dee, LLc and in its first print in August 2012, the hardcover packs a wealth of information within its modest $29.95 cost, exploring the path to optimum spinal health in interesting and surprising ways. The well-written text, the thoroughly explained medical terminology, real-life MRI scans, and the use of diagrams and nicely abstracted illustrations make it easy for the everyday person to follow. Hansraj s work should prove to be very useful for people that want to learn ways to improve spine health as well as overall well being. It begins with a medical section which explains the pandemic spinal conditions that are affecting people. The book is broken down into two parts: Human Software, which focuses on the brain; and Human Hardware, which takes a look at the body. The reader will understand what stenosis is and how can be treated by following the examples of listed lifestyle options. Conservative treatments, such as cervical stabilization, are also mentioned as well as surgical options, which are necessary from time to time. The content on each well thought out and organized chapter introduces important concepts with concisely-described definitions. Relevant medical images used for processing the written information compliment many of the concepts discussed. The book can be used by orthopaedic surgeons as an excellent source of reference to help their clients better understand the facts and intricacies of the spine, as well as by those with patients in post-surgery rehabilitation. The book presents people with all the options available to help prevent spinal problems, improve spine health, and to help people live vibrant, healthy lives. From the first to last page, we re given important facts and statistics. Keys to an Amazing Life covers important health-related areas that other books in its category do not. Hansraj explains the effects of habits ad rituals, the mental, the emotional, the physical and how it is all interlinked. Important areas such as positive and negative thoughts, sleep, exercise, meditation, rehabilitation, and nutrition are explored in clear detail. The book is written for the general public and readers will be able to comprehend many important concepts. One can read the entire book and gain not just a good theoretical understanding, but a practical application in certain areas as well. The amount of information that can be learned on first reading Keys to an Amazing Life is impressive. A second reading will serve to reinforce any details. From there, the book can be read out of order according to point of interest due to the fact that each chapter can stand on its own. Whether the audience is men or women, executives or laborers, or students or professionals everyone will learn something after reading this book. Dr. Hansraj has written an edifying work that is sure to be useful and frequently resourced by the layperson and by doctors. --Hudson Valley Business Journal, Chris Neil
In Keys to An Amazing Life: Secrets of the Cervical S --Dr. Todd Eller, Senior Coach of Business Breakthroughs International
In Keys to An Amazing Life: Secrets of the Cervical Spine, Hansraj unlocks the influence of common everyday options that are good for your spinal health and general health. I am so happy to see a scientific rationale for principles known to be good for humans. The power of a thought, neural plasticity, meditation, happiness, posture, sleep, wake up time are combined with the "six physicians" sunshine, air, water, diet, exercise, and rest. This book will illuminate your life. --Jack Canfield, Co-Author of Chicken Soup to Inspire The Body and Soul and The Success Principles
As a surgical spine specialist I am amazed at the graphical simplicity and clarity with which Dr. Hansraj presents spinal anatomy, spinal problems and spinal surgery. This book is a triumph for the patients! --Patrick F. O'Leary, MD - Internationally recognized Master Orthopedic Spine Surgeon
