In The Power of Balance, Dr Rangan Chatterjee presents us with an incredibly simple framework for taking control of our health. He divides health into four pillars- diet, rest, sleep and movement. By making small, easily achievable changes in each of these key areas you can find and maintain good health - and avoid illness. You don't need to excel at any one pillar; what matters is the balance across all the things you do, from-
- Having an electronic 'sabbath' once a week
- Aiming for 12 hours every day without food
- Exposing yourself to sunlight first thing each morning
Based on cutting edge research and his own experience as a GP, and featuring fascinating case studies from real patients, The Power of Balanceis an inspiring, easy-to-follow and practical guide to good health.
