Get Well, Stay Well, and Manage Your Helth
Dog Ear Publishing, 2010 - 80 pages
Are you tired of following recommendations for your health that never seem to work-recommendations that have never been shown to be effective? Get Well, Stay Well, and Manage Your Health: Follow the Best Evidence-Based Medical Advice contains recommendations that have been shown to work. They are derived from medical information that has been validated by scientific studies complemented by the consensus opinion of medical experts. Chapter One tells you how to use your genetic heritage and lifestyle to achieve optimal health and prevent disease. In Chapter Two, you will learn how to detect disease while there is still time to cure it or get it under control. Chapter Three is about managing your health, so that you can discover whether you are getting better or worse. In doing this you will learn how to create a medical journal and a Web-based electronic personal medical record. You will also learn how to confidentially order your own medical tests and receive the test results.
