INTRODUCTION

The book begins by asking readers, “Is it really possible to be at an ideal weight, have tons of energy and feel great ?” It then introduces what is at the core of achieving this. The author will present her own testimony, and some real-life stories of patients she has worked with over the last 20 years, demonstrating that the first steps towards optimal health, are to ask questions, seek knowledge, and take responsibility for your own health. The Introduction discusses some common misconceptions within the health industry, and how easy it is to feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting media hype around health. It invites readers to examine their own current health status by evaluating individual factors such as pain, sleep issues, and the unhealthy habits they wish to change.
