“Health Strong is the most up-to-date work on health, exercise and immunity defense, backed by science. This is a must-have book for every doctor and health enthusiast.” -Dr. Joseph McMurray
We will train you like an athlete in the contest of your life.
The first thing we will do is convince you that most Americans (and many people in the world) are not healthy. We will then explain how your body works. We will tell you about food, exercise, supplements, hormone replacement therapy and provide a road map toward good health. This is a path for a healthy life. If it were a race, it would be the race won by the turtle-one small step in the right direction every day.
Why We Wrote This Book
I’m unhappy with the medical culture in the United States because it focuses on treating the symptoms of the sick and does little to prevent the most common chronic diseases that are the leading causes of death and disability-which are completely preventable! If you don’t have the knowledge contained in this book, you’ll likely develop a chronic metabolic illness, and you’ll be given prescription medications and likely told that it’s part of “growing old” when, in fact, it is not.
MOST AMERICANS TODAY ARE UNHEALTHY. MOST AMERICANS DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HEALTHY TO EAT, WHAT IS HEALTHY TO DRINK, AND HOW TO KEEP THE BODY HEALTHY. DO YOU HAVE TOO MUCH BELLY FAT? DO YOU HAVE 5 ALCOHOLIC DRINKS EACH WEEK? DO YOU EXERCISE? DO YOU EAT FAST FOOD? DO YOU SLEEP WELL? HOW IS YOUR SEX LIFE? MOST MEDICAL DOCTORS TODAY ARE NO BETTER THAN YOU. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE TRAINING NEEDED TO KEEP YOU HEALTHY AND TO PREVENT THE MOST COMMON DISEASES THAT OCCUR. DOCTORS ARE TRAINED TO TREAT THE SICK-NOT TO PREVENT ILLNESS. I KNOW THIS BECAUSE I WAS GUILTY OF THIS. MOST AMERICANS DO NOT HAVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE-THAT MEANS YOU-AND IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. THIS BOOK IS THE ANSWER, AND ANYONE CAN IMPROVE.
