The Secrets Of People Who Never Get Sick....Review & Giveaway

I know right now we are all in midst of holiday wonderfulness but, along with Santa, winter also brings colds.  We can't really escape it can we?  Maybe we can!  I just finished a brand new book called The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick by Gene Stone and it is brimming with tips from healthy people around the world.  So, maybe, just maybe we can bring some of these tips into our own lives and have not only a healthier cold and flu season but a healthier life as well.


Written by Gene Stone, a bestselling health-savvy journalist who’s investigated, firsthand, virtually every form of regimen, diagnostic test, therapy, and fad, The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick, a fascinating and original book of science, tells the stories of 25 people who each possess a different secret of excellent health—and shows how we can all use these insights to change our lives for the better.

The stories make it personal; then comes the science, the authority (with experts’ conflicting opinions on if and how it really works), and the nuts and bolts—how to bring each secret into your own life. From probiotics to veganism to a daily dose of garlic, from yoga to cold showers, it’s an invaluable list: 25 secrets to health, and how to make each work for you. 

Like everyone, I want to lead the healthiest life possible so I was really excited to dive into this book.  I found it to be very well written and I was so engrossed that I stayed up extra late three nights in a row to finish it!  Just so you know this says a lot as I am typically out like a light right after the kiddos at 8:00!  What I really loved about the book were the personal stories.  This book is not simply a book of "do this then do that" with a bunch of dry medical facts. The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick gives you real life examples about what works for an individual, their regime, plus the scientific backing on why their way of life may work.

There are some things I already do (sometimes) which I was happy to see like doing Yoga.  There were some things I could easily see fitting into my life now or sometime in the future like running and taking brewers yeast.  There were a few that I personally could probably not implement like eating dirt (yikes!!) and taking cold showers but if it would have kept me from getting this Norovirus I am just getting over maybe I should have given it a try!!

I really enjoyed reading this book. I found it to be very interesting and informative and think it makes for a great read.  Pick one up today on Amazon...

I was just thinking this morning how amazing it is that I haven't been sick for two months now. I typically get sick in November and stay ill until February. I'm not sure how I've managed to miss it this year but I'm not complaining! I do encourage our family to wash our hands more than usual.

I love this giveaway and I desperately want this book! I try a variety of ways to stay healthy but I was born with a fairly compromised immune system and subsequently have suffered from a plethora of autoimmune-related issues from sinuses to skin to chronic illness (via endometriosis) so I am always looking for ways to improve as my body seems a delicate balance always on the edge of wellness and sickness.

Alicia B said...

Oh, I almost forgot...some of my dominant things I use for keeping as healthy as possible are...
...yoga (for chronic pain, emotional calm, and sleep issues as well as general immune boosting this seems to work well)
...netti pot/nasal cleaning (helps me ward off impending sinus infections...which are a fairly regular occurence but since discovering the nasal flushing I have avoided them for a year!)
...acupuncture (has been a lifesaver for endo related pain as well as sinus headaches and general immune boosting)
...meditation (to keep myself calm and centered in life on the whole).
