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
