My 2016 Favorite: “How Not to Die”

These videos, by the most important thought leaders of our day, share what’s proven to work to reverse (or prevent) cancer, heart disease, as well as the wear and tear of chronic stress.

Dr. Greger, once again, hits it out of the park with his book (How Not to Die) … which he summarizes in this recent talk.

I recommend trying a weekly dose of Dr. Greger’s tasteful little videos (some are below) – which he sends for free in email.

 

 

Dr. Ornish’s landmark research on reversing diseases (cancer, heart disease) is explained in this clip of an award-winning documentary. Also, you can join Dr. Ornish’s community for free.

More of my favorites …

1.   Look at the power you can have with gizmos! We can be savvier consumers about these gizmos. Harvard experts suggest ‘what works’ to improve our sleep, diet, & exercise.

2.   For well-being, Dr. Hanson offers one simple idea to practice in each free e-newsletter called, Just One Thing.  He blends the latest brain science, positive psychology, and contemplative training.

3.   Here’s how we can ‘prepare’ to be our healthiest  …  how to create more demand for the best care  … and how to find providers who really get it – Lifestyle IS Medicine!

 And, my hope … 

Increasingly, healthcare is about making whole communities more healthy. I believe that we can use healthcare training as a vehicle to spread health to each community…. by engaging campuses in a little friendly competition – March Madness for Total Fitness.

As Dr. Ornish showed, both good health – and its delivery – is a team sport. It’s not just about personal diet and exercise. Maintaining fitness goals requires resilience to stick with it when we’re stressed. And often, a team of friends can help us more than if we’re alone.

Ideally, similar to Dr. Ornish’s clinical team, we can teach students in the allied health fields to lead fitness teams – not only for better campus health & well-being, but for their professional training. Because, in the 21st century, healthcare will be less about ‘sick’ care and more about wellness. That is, providers will get paid more if they keep their patients healthier! Who knows … maybe one day, you’ll be able to join a fitness team, in your locale, for your total health & well-being.  Stay tuned!
