Hemingway on FishingBook - 2000
To achieve an optimum diet and physical fitness, lifestyle changes are often necessary but difficult to make. Compliance to any prescribed diet or fitness regime is always a challenge, not always handled successfully. Naturopathic medicine has recognized this challenge in establishing lifestyle counseling as a founding principle of this form of medical practice. In Naturopathic Lifestyle Changes, Rouchatas keeps the counseling simple so that changes in how we eat and exercise can be readily and permanently made. No complex diet formulas -- just common sense on achieving energy balance by reducing calorie intake and increasing calorie expenditure. No complicated vitamin supplement regimen -- just the basics on vitamins and essential fatty acids. And no medical jargon -- just solid advice on changing lifestyle to prevent common illnesses, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, erectile dysfunction, pre-menstrual syndrome, and mood disorders. This book provides readers with the basic knowledge and courage to make significant lifestyle changes that will improve their health and quality of life. Ideal for healthcare practitioners to recommend to patients facing the challenge of improving their health.
