Everyday, we encounter many mental, physical, and social challenges that we have to overcome in order to thrive. Some we can immediately recognize and tackle, and others—the most dangerous of all— are camouflaged by what is considered “normal.” How we deal with this can make the difference between a long and healthy life and one that is cut short.
In HEALTHY NO MATTER WHAT: How Humans Are Hardwired to Adapt, innovative doctor Alex Jadad, MD, and his philosopher daughter Tamen Jadad-Garcia take you to peek behind many curtains, giving you access to places traditionally reserved for insiders. Building on data and experiences from millions of people around the world, this book shows you how a healthy and long life is possible, even with serious diseases. It condenses the best scientific knowledge and insights from medicine, psychology, and sociology, from the microscopic to the colossal.
As much as the healthcare system can be very beneficial, it can also be a hotbed of lethal threats. The book will give you evidence about whether, how, and when to use it, to get optimal results and avoid being harmed. Through engaging stories and case studies, the authors show you how trees can heal, how fake pills can still work, and why making comparisons with your peers can kill you. Throughout, the Jadads will ask you questions, including one able to predict whether you could lose 20 years of life.
With wisdom and empathy, HEALTHY NO MATTER WHAT underscores that you can overcome practically any obstacle that prevents you from being healthy with your natural gift of adaptation. Wellness enthusiasts, medical practitioners, and curious readers will find this book to be an illuminating exploration into the vast world of health and will leave them empowered with immediately actionable tips to have the healthiest and longest life possible.
