The Art of Health – Simple and Powerful Keys for Creating Health in Your Life
Mainstream health care is overcrowded with gimmicks, "cures," fear-based messages, costly treatments, extreme diet and exercise regimens, and unreasonable claims of what perfect health should look like. Who can live like that long-term, and does this mindset bring about real change toward feeling better? The Art of Health is a fresh and revolutionary approach that will help you take charge of your own health first instead of focusing on what "everyone else" has to say about it. It highlights that you are the #1 authority on your health and that you can take care of yourself not as an overnight fad, but rather as an art.
Dr. Patel draws on her own years of experience treating patients who have achieved significant improvements in their health and quality of life by following the simple, yet powerful guidelines covered in this book. The recommendations in this book are not extreme, costly, torturous, or promising of miracle results. Yet they can significantly help prevent illness, improve symptoms, and potentially even reduce dependence on pharmaceutical drugs or other treatments. Most importantly, they can improve overall quality and enjoyment of life.
Throughout the book you will learn:
-How to pay better attention to your body and its signals -Why understanding how chronic symptoms are interrelated is a key to healing -The importance of choosing long-term health instead of quick fixes -How both conventional and alternative medical systems don't have all the answers -The power of the mind in supporting real health -The role excess fear plays in health -How unrealistic expectations can be an obstacle toward better health -Why labels in health care can be limiting
The Art of Health is for anyone who is sick of all the rules and fads in health care, and who wants to experience real and long-term change toward better health. Health is wealth, so make yourself richer today.
