Being healthy in this crazy, busy, modern world is not easy.
For journalist Shannon Harvey, finding a solution to this problem became personal when she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that had no known cause and no known cure. After being told by her doctor that she could end up in a wheelchair, she realised she had to take action.
This inspired a ten-year journey, where she spent more than $30,000 on conventional and alternative treatments, searched through thousands of scientific papers, and traveled the world to interview dozens of pioneering health researchers from leading institutions such as Harvard and Stanford. On her road to getting better she met people with remarkable stories of recovery, discovered the truth amidst conflicting medical advice and sorted the quacks from the experts. She has now compiled the latest evidence and her personal experiences into one book to help you find the answers to good health.

I appreciated the author's holistic and practical approach to health. Many of her health struggles and experiences were very relatable and I found myself nodding in agreement as I read. I also liked that the findings were evidenced based- that was an important distinction for me personally.
The best bit about this book is how well structured it is. I've been able to focus on one aspect of my health to improve each chapter. This worked well because I was never too overwhelmed with too much info at any one point. Before you know it you'll learn a whole lot about sleep, stress, diet etc... without realising it. Shannon has a gift for distilling complex science into an easy to understand and entertaining read.
