The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain
I personally can’t stand the author, but when my trusted Naturopath recommended that I try Gundry’s nutrition program, and my symptoms subsequently went into remission, I was sold. Whether you’re looking to lose weight and keep it off or want to reduce inflammation in your body, this educational/cook book may be your ticket to reclaiming your health. A personal life hack for systemic inflammation that takes a lot of effort but has a comparable reward.
Becoming a Supple Leopard: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance
How To Be Sick: A Buddhist-inspired guide for the chronically ill and their caregivers.
This is a book for people who will not be their old self again and for all those whom, at least for now, getting better isn’t possible. This is a book that most reassuringly says even to those people, “You, too, are going to be okay – even if you never recover your health!”
Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.
Health isn’t just about exercise and what you’re eating. It’s also about what you’re thinking and saying. Read this book for densely packed “I thought that was only me!” ah-ha moments. I’ve listened to this audiobook multiple times.
A New Earth: Awakening Your Life’s Purpose
This book shifted me from being on snooze to awake. Buyer beware: you’ll likely have to read it in small, digestible sections with time to process between. It’ll also make you realize that half the world is “asleep” and be frustrated with people for a period of time. Tough read – recommend audiobookin’ this one. Entry-level option: The Tao of Pooh.
