)-- In Jeanine Joy’s new book, "TRUE Prevention—Optimum Health: Remember Galileo," the founder of Happiness 1st Institute takes us step-by-step through the science evincing that most of the physical and social diseases that exist today share one root cause—a cause each individual has the ability to change. She shows us that the reason we are not making progress is that current efforts treat symptoms instead of the root cause. We learn that scientific specialization has created a myopic view, often leaving one branch of science unaware of complimentary research in another branch. Only someone who has asked a big question like Jeanine’s “What makes humans thrive?” could find the answer because a big question requires a big picture perspective.
As the evidence accumulated during her search for an answer, the same root cause appeared repeatedly—for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, anxiety, addictions, obesity, poor nutrition, failure to thrive, failed relationships, asthma, crime, disparate impact, and more. In "TRUE Prevention" Jeanine walks us through the solution and includes innovative research that supports her conclusion that some of the underlying principles society accepts as true, are not, and that those false premises undermine human thriving. Practical and immediately useful skill-based processes are provided that can help anyone thrive more in every area of life—health, relationships, career, and well-being. In one fell swoop, Jeanine has empowered the world with greater control over their health and more hope than most have enjoyed in a very long time.
The solution is inexpensive and offers the possibility of a better life for everyone on the planet. With the release of "TRUE Prevention—Optimum Health: Remember Galileo" her vision of a better world for everyone is one giant step forward. Prevention is far more likely than cure—we already know how to prevent 50% of heart disease (at a minimum) but people haven’t listened (due to The Galileo Effect). The same preventive steps, because they address the root cause, reduces the risk of many cancers and diabetes, crime, divorce, recidivism, addictions, teen pregnancy, bullying, and more.
The reminder to remember Galileo refers to the tendency humanity has of not believing new information until we understand every nuance about why it works—even when copious information about its accuracy is available. It took humanity 50 years between Semmelweis’ demonstrations that hand-washing substantially reduced mortality and its acceptance as a normal practice. "TRUE Prevention" is even more beneficial to humanity and she wants the unnecessary suffering to stop now. In an age of rapidly rising disease rates and medical costs, discovering a solution everyone can afford is exciting. Now that the solution is known, humanity can’t afford not to adopt these strategies.
