Sustainable Wellness by Dr. Matt Mumber and Heather Reed is a wonderful book which defines health and provides strategies to keep healthy. The authors define health as a state of balance with our internal and external environment.
Health is a dynamic state which can include the bodily responses to acute and chronic challenges. These challenges may include things like inflammation which is expressed classically in blood tests like the C-Reactive Protein.
The authors have constructed a three-legged stool which supports overall health. The legs are physical activity, nutrition, and stress management. A deficit in any or all of these areas can bring about disharmony in how the body operates.
The authors explain what to eat in great detail. A whole-food or plant-based diet is optimal to keep internal inflammations at levels consistent with overall good health. People are encouraged to eat fresh fruits, vegetables and grains. In addition, each of us should take a good multivitamin, Omega 3 and Vitamin B12 daily.
The authors provide eight steps to lasting health. These steps include knowing thyself, mindfulness, a thorough life review, nutrition management, physical activity, stress management, spirituality, and the integration of all prior steps.
The book describes the Enneagram practical guide to personality types. Within these tables, most people can find portraits of themselves. The tables set forth
personality types like reformers, helpers, achievers, individualists, investigators, loyalists, enthusiasts, challengers, and peacemakers.
Sustainable Wellness by Dr. Matt Mumber and Heather Reed is a dynamic book which has important implications for personal health maintenance, as well as cost containment in the health care system.Powered by Sidelines
