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...
