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 Balance is an inspiring, easy-to-follow and practical guide to good health.
About the Author
Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is a pioneer in the emerging field of progressive medicine and is changing the way that we look at illness. He is known for finding the root cause of people's problems by taking a 360 degree approach to health, which was highlighted in the first series of his ground-breaking BBC One TV show, Doctor in the House, which airs its second series this May.
He is the resident doctor on BBC One's Breakfast, a regular commentator on BBC Radio and gave an inspirational TEDx talk on making diseases disappear. He writes for The Huffington Post, Mind Body Green and has a monthly column on lifestyle medicine in Top Sante. He regularly lectures on his subject at events and conferences around the world.
I love the approach in this book. All the things you know are important to good health but presented simply and in a way that you can realistically apply and gradually integrate into your busy life. I feel like its something I'll be sticking with. Life changer!
