Get smart about your health! 181 ideas to make you feel better, healthier and stronger.
True health is as much a matter of mind as it is a matter of body. It is about total wellness. The author has meticulously sifted through thousands of international studies on all aspects of health and medicine, both modern and alternative, and wellness philosophies and reduced them to 181 short, crisp, fact-based and helpful explanations you can incorporate in your daily routine.
Like all good things in life the secret of good health lies in concepts that are simple, practical, easy-to-follow and inexpensive; ideas that may seem small or insignificant, but are the way to a fitter, healthier and a happier life.
