Managing one’s health is an important aspect of modern life. A growing number of people live into their 80s, 90s or even 100 by staying well. This guide to medical knowledge provides health recommendations that have been shown to work, derived from medical information validated by scientific studies as well as the opinion of medical experts. The first chapter offers tips on using genetic heritage and lifestyle, such as sleep, diet and mental attitude, to achieve optimal health and prevent disease. The second chapter describes how to detect disease while there’s still time to fight it or control it, covering such topics as heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, birth defects and stealth diseases. The third chapter covers health management – knowing whether you are getting better or worse.
Get Well, Stay Well, and Manage Your Health, published by Dog Ear Publishing, provides specific ways people can affect their health. For instance, it describes how to create a medical journal and electronic personal medical record. It teaches how to record weight loss and gain, a family history, vital signs, therapies and outcomes. Readers also will learn how to order their own medical tests with confidence and receive the test results if they don’t have a doctor who is overseeing their care. Learning how to be as well as you can be will help you to live a long, healthy and productive life. Wellness does not mean never getting sick or having pain, but well people learn how to get over aches and pains or how to function effectively while living with them. And readers of this well-researched book can learn how to do the same thing.
