Product Description

Format: Hardcover
Dr Larimore captures , with precise and articulte words, the idea that wellness encompasses an integration of both the physical and the mental/spiritual dimensions of our daily existence. The book is well researched. References and web based links are set out logically for further study. The book is medically reliable----as a pediatrcian for the past two decades and also as a wroiter myself, I was impressed by both the style and content of this well-written book.
Spirituality features prominently in this book. But as is the case with the classic timeless book "The Power of Positive Thinking"by the late Dr Norman Vincent Peale, the faith language is crafted in a non-offensive manner.
Even a passionate atheist will be challenged in a kind way, to consider the benefits of faith and spirituality when it comes to balancing one's life, by being proactive in preventing disease, lightening one's load, avoiding loneliness, and nurturing hopes and dreams.
This book will find its place, not in the bookshelve of my private library, but in a more accessable and prominent spot on my desk.
I am looking forward to referencing it in my own writing and will , without hesitation, highly recommend it to both patients in my clinic and coleagues at work.
As the title suggests, the 10 essentials are indeed essential to optimal wellness.
Dr Larimore has successfully convinced me that the four wheels of health are to in perfect balance; he has also provided the reader with the specifics of how to achieve that balance.
This book will contribute to a healthier lifestyle and inner peace and fullfillment.
I was unable to put it down during a transcontinental flight!
It will captivate the attention of any sincere and open-minded reader

Format: Hardcover
This book is a refreshing & revolutionary new look at what constitutes good health. It is far more than just another diet & exercise book. It encompasses ALL aspects of health; from the importance of our relationships, to the nurturing our hopes & dreams, to cultivating a true spirituality, to becoming our own health care quarterback. Read this book to discover how a Model T Ford inspired Dr. Larrimore to realize that the four basic components of highly healthy people are not only to achieve a physical balance in your life, but also an emotional, relational & spiritual ballance. This book is filled with delightful characters & illustrations from Dr. Larimore's own private practice, who share such sage advice as, "Doc, never give a patient a sleeping pill & a laxative at the same time!" A highly readable & enjoyable book that will entertain you, & motivate you to re-evaluate whether you are really a highly, healthy person.

I believe this book will change many lives!
