Discover How to Boost Health and Stay Fit with Book’s Step-by-Step Help

Readers find out how to take control of their own health destiny by incorporating the latest medical research and blending the best principles of diet, exercise and mental fitness. Dog Ear Publishing reviews this extraordinary new book that presents a fresh perspective of self-empowerment that utilizes the mind-body-spirit confection to achieve optimal health.

Indianapolis, IN, September 18, 2015 --( Good health is a precious commodity, especially in a nation where obesity and diabetes runs rampant. Yet, by making appropriate lifestyle choices, one can largely negate these illnesses. The authors provide a pathway that circumnavigates the world of prescriptions, quick fixes and gimmicks. A new book describes the power of connecting the mind-body-spirit, which leads to profound changes for improved health. The authors describe how “health synergy” is established by melding together diet, exercise and social/mental engagement. Making small positive changes in these areas can lead to big health benefits.

Drawing on new research in exercise physiology, nutrition, social engagement and their real-life applications, “Mind-Body-Spirit Connections: Your Pathway to Better Health” offers information on increasing harmony and synchrony in life. The book provides new strategies for staying functionally younger and explains why some diets work and others don’t. It also includes a special chapter on women’s health, as well as three chapters on common ailments and alternative medicine.

The book includes specific suggestions for building self-worth and self-confidence, easing stress and handling life’s inevitable transition. For instance, a chart on the “dynamic dozen” – 12 foods believed to be highly nutritious and relatively low in saturated fat, calories and cholesterol – helps promote a healthier diet, which is critical to being physically fit. The authors’ premise is that by making small changes that integrate physical and mental health, people can bring about big results in their daily life and well-being.
