Integrative medicine pioneer Deepak Chopra and Harvard neurology professor Rudolph E. Tanzi explain how you can take charge of your health. They believe most chronic disorders, including Alzheimer’s, take root in your body years before the first symptoms appear. The authors explain how stress, diet, exercise and emotion – and especially love – affect your inflammatory response and overall health. Chopra and Tanzi provide logical steps you can take to supercharge your immune system and stay healthy. As you might expect, they discuss meditation and mindfulness, but do not offer a self-help manual of spiritual guidance. Instead, they provide a commonsense manual for coping with today’s stresses and minimizing their internal and external impact. While never giving medical advice, getAbstract recommends this exploration of the connections among mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual health

Staying Alive

Renowned bestselling author Deepak Chopra and professor Rudolph E. Tanzi have developed a long-range plan called the “healing self” that you can adopt to reach the goal of becoming whole – the best strategy for remaining healthy over a lifetime. The authors believe anyone can become a self-healer by embracing the power of awareness. They assert that you can learn to stay consciously in a state of wellness and avoid illness.

Chopra and Tanzi point out that awareness skills aren’t necessarily associated with spirituality or Eastern religions. They urge you to use awareness skills to improve the quality of your health and life. Consider how you feel physically; be aware so you understand the signals your body gives you. The healing self monitors those signals for indications of your well-being.
