Overview

In Quantum Wellness, New York Times bestselling author Kathy Freston teaches us that the key to achieving our highest level of health and contentment is by making small, focused changes in the separate but interconnected areas of body, mind, and spirit. Freston advocates progress, not perfection and is well known for her "leaning into change" approach to eating healthier. She shows you how incremental, manageable adjustments in the way you eat, work, and interact with the rest of the world make all the difference. Quantum Wellness will forever change the way you approach healthy living.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Former model Freston (The One) writes intimately about healing and finding wellness through "incremental changes that vault us to a new experience of ourselves." Peppered with examples from Freston's own path to more conscious, healthier living (quitting smoking, becoming vegan), the book methodically addresses what it means to be healthy in mind, body and spirit and how the three are inextricably intertwined. Some of Freston's prescriptions-such as cleansing, meditation and yoga-are familiar and feel like Hinduism and Buddhism lite-but her contention that "[w]e cannot thrive as individuals without tending to the ills of this world and all its inhabitants" is powerfully argued. The book devotes considerable attention to promoting vegetarianism ("It's about having integrity in the most fundamental of our actions-eating"), and in keeping with the book's attention to "incremental" change, Freston introduces ways for even the most hardened carnivore to start leading a cruelty-free life. With compelling chapters on dealing with crisis and an innovative section on "personal energy management," Freston invites-and equips-readers to become their own healers in moments of sickness, despair and loss.

Library Journal

The medical profession is constantly learning more about the mind-body connection, i.e., how our emotions and attitudes can impact our physical health. Freston, author of the best-selling The One and habituA© of Oprah and The Early Show, extends that concept, arguing that making small attitude adjustments and changing thinking patterns can have a beneficial effect on one's health, looks, and life. She outlines eight "Pillars of Wellness"-Meditation, Visualization, Fun Activities, Conscious Eating, Exercise, Self-Work, Spiritual Practice, and Service-and explains how they contribute to a healthy existence. She emphasizes, for example, the spiritual component of eating foods that have been prepared humanely (the more this reviewer hears about factory-farmed livestock, the less appetizing steak and chicken breast seem) and points out the studies that show that such foods are, in fact, more healthful. Essentially, this is a well-argued and clearly explained demonstration of Socrates's contention that the unexamined life is not worth living. Recommended wherever Freston's other books were popular.

Read an Excerpt

We live in extraordinary times. Just taking in the news of one day, you can hear about people rising to spectacular new levels of wealth even while others lose their health or homes in a maddening bureaucracy; there are species which are disappearing seemingly into thin air juxtaposed with new planets being discovered and researched; cyberspace is supercharged with ever better ways of getting closer to each other and the things we want to know about, and traveling the globe is easier and faster than it has ever been before. There are scientific breakthroughs and heated up wars and industries which continue to amp up their profits in ways that can make your head spin. Indeed, the world is moving at breakneck speed and it takes an enormous amount of effort just to keep a strong foothold and firm balance.

With each passing year the stresses of everyday life seem to challenge us with ever greater urgency. We work harder than ever, have less time to prepare healthy food, and depend all the more on quick fixes and medicines to keep our bodies running. We are told to be on alert for terrorism, coaxed to keep up with an economy that seems to have taken on a life of its own, and now we are being warned that the environment is taking a turn for the worse. We are being diagnosed with more illnesses and malfunctions even while our life expectancy is increasing. We do what we can to maintain our equilibrium and wonder still how long this game will continue until something gives.

Ours is a civilization that seems to be poised for some sort of a breakthrough; some would call it a new age, while others caution that we might be nearing the end of an era. One thing is for sure though, and that is that we are the cause of what is yet to come—for ourselves and for the earth. We are a vitally significant group of people occupying the planet, armed with information and technology; we have the ability to step beyond the status quo and change for the better. Or otherwise.

How we choose to live now—today—will not only dictate the way our personal prospects unfold, but will also help to determine the future prospects of humankind. We are all connected by our source, each made up of the same stuff. Modern physics has proven what spiritual sages have been saying for thousands of years: that all matter is essentially vibrating energy.

We consist of moving electrons, protons, and neutrons and these bare components when investigated more closely really just drill down to vibrating energy that has no boundary. Essentially, beneath what appears to be our skin and bones and cells, we are bare beingness, shifting and flowing energy operating under the illusion that we are separate and apart from each other. The very force which makes up the oceans and trees and brain circuitry and creative art also makes us up.

The way I see it, we are all individual expressions (or creations, if you will) of God, or Spirit. We may have different ideologies and stand firmly in our own bodies, but we are very much bound to one another by this core shared source that powers us all. We are inextricably interconnected to every other being that exists. And so, what one of us experiences, we all, on some level, also experience.

How we eat, medicate ourselves, work, worship, and relate to one another deeply affects every other aspect of life. Therefore, we can no longer just plod along hoping that things will just work out; we have to work them out by starting at home. If we want to create wellness—peace, health, prosperity, and happiness—for ourselves, we also have to consider things holistically in that we address all of life as part of our program.

The word quantum means “a sudden and significant change; an abrupt transition.” Hence Quantum Wellness refers to a radical shift in the quality of our personal lives. It is an evolution on every level of being: physical, mental, and spiritual. The good news is that we can and will experience radical results from small and incremental changes: simple transitions in our diet, slight shifts in the way we resolve conflict and communicate, and some gentle new practices to strengthen our spiritual lives.

    Take Small Steps

    I expect that this new book by Kathy Freston is going to make some big waves. Not only because of the foreword written by #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Mehmet C. Oz. And not even because of the author's appearance at Oprah Show today. It is because makeovers is a very popular topic and Kathy Freston seems to have a good grip on it. As the title 'Quantum Wellness' suggests, our health, and our wellbeing can be achieved by focusing on small steps in our everyday life. Kathy offers for the readers the following eight Pillars of Wellness 1. Meditation. It is important for everyone to get some quiet time everyday, become really still, and look inside yourself. Connect with your 'inner light' and just be present). 2. Conscious eating. This not only mean eating less, or showing your food well. Conscious eating means most of all being aware of where your food comes from, how the animals are treated and how the environment is affected by the foods that you eat. To be healthy and happy about yourself you need have more integrity and to be conscious about what you eat. 3. Exercise. Many books have been written about it and this is nothing new for anyone. We just need to devote at least half an hour a day for moving our bodies. In my opinion taking Yoga classes is a great option, especially that it combines physical exercise with deep breathing and meditation. 4. Visualization. As suggested in The Secret, visualization is the mother of all achievements. 'It's like creating a blueprint for the way I want to become and setting down the intention,' Kathy says. 5. Spiritual practice. For some people it can mean prayer. For Kathy it is mainly about compassion, being aware of suffering that's all around and to be compassionate about it. 6. Self-work. Educate yourself - learn about your physical body, about your spirituality or emotional well-being.. For Kathy that means 'means going inside and learning where you're stuck and pushing yourself past what's comfortable.' 7. Service. Don't be stuck in your own world, reach out, help others. This will bring about great feeling of fulfillment. 8. Fun activities. It is important in everyone's live to have some fun. For some it could be listing to the good music, or dancing, or spending some time in a great company. You just need to get away from it all... To jump start the program Kathy suggests 21 day cleansing program to get rid of Caffeine, Sugar, Alcohol, Gluten, Animal Products. I suggest Complete Body Cleansing that is so well described in one of my favorite wellness books titled 'Can We Live 150 Years?'

    Important Steps to Transformation

    Ms. Freston has created a wonderful book that is focused on transforming our health and the relationship we have with the world. She writes about '8 Pillars' of wellness: Meditation, Visualization, Fun activities, Conscious eating, Exercise, Self-work, Spiritual practice and Service. Her idea is that by taking a series of small but important steps, we will eventually achieve 'Quantum Wellness.' It's an approach that involves compassion, not just for yourself, but for every living creature and the earth itself. Adopting a completely vegan lifestyle is challenging for me, both because I'm allergic to soy and I've got years of eating habits ingrained in me, but I'm taking it one day at a time and being kind with myself rather than an all or nothing approach. My emotional eating is improving tremendously, which was a major roadblock for me. This is a wonderful book that I think anyone could benefit from.

    Oprah is right--this is a spectacular book!

    This book changed my life. I was exercising and eating right, but I was still living life in a more stressed out zone than is healthy. This book offered a wake-up call. Oprah's endorsement will help the book, and everyone who reads it will profit for the rest of their lives, I believe.

    Great book for a healthy lifestyle

    I like to feel I am constantly evolving, mind and body, and Kathy Freston's book is another helpful step in that process for me. As an ethical vegan, reading her book reinforces my lifestyle choices as positive, not only for myself, but for the animals and the environment as well. I think everyone should pick up a copy, and start your own personal evolution.

    A reviewer

    Kathy Freston believes that just one small thing you do (or several small things) can yield big results, and I think she's right. Looking back, I realize that it has worked that way for me many times in the past, I just never really thought about it until now. If you need motivation to do something--anything--to improve your life or even just the way you feel about yourself, this book is for you.

    Life-changing!

    Until we start connecting to our food in a more meaningful way, real change within us can not happen. What an inspiring read - it's never too late to make a healthy and humane change to make our lives and the planet a better place. As an animal lover, the message of this book rings true!

    "A Practical and Spiritual Guide" to Life and Conscious Living

    QUANTUM WELLNESS is such an amazing and beautiful gift to the world. By writing in an elegant, conversational way, Kathy Freston connects instantly to the reader and offers a simple and easy way to not only raise your own awareness of the way you conduct your life, but how to take simple steps to ease into a higher consciousness. Unlike some other spiritual books I have read in the past, nothing is forced upon you and simple suggestions are merely made as to bring awareness to your everyday living and how to "lean" into change. Freston has a lovely way with words and I was instantly pulled into her book and her guidance towards making a happy and healthier life for myself and the world.

    This book is truly a blessing and I thank you for writing this, Kathy! You have inspired me to contribute better to the world around me and to be conscious of the little things I do that can affect others.

    A must-read for anyone looking to better themselves and our planet around us!!

    Mind, Body, Spiti and the Environment

    Body-mind-spirit, and , most recently--environment 'eco-friendly' is the new mantra to living a full and complete and healthy life, as shown in Quantum Wellness and dozens of other new and not so new books. This is a good thing--seeing books on personal transformation extend beyond the self and into caring for the environment and all its inhabitants. The way we think, feel and act is interconnected with the planet and the animals--with all of life. For example, Kathy Freston supports vegan diets 'or at the very least vegetarian' not only because of the health benefits of a meat-free diet, but because eating most meat available in this country means eating animals that have been treated inhumanely. Additionally, raising animals for slaughter takes a toll on the environment. Freston calls this conscious eating and that means that nobody is harmed by what she puts into her body. Freston also supports using eco-friendly body care products and household cleaners--good for the environment and you.To name one of many books that support optimal health, veganism/vegetarianism and the green lifestyle is Growing Up Green: Baby and Child Care: Volume 2 in the Bestselling Green This! Series 'Green This!'. Quantum Wellness, according to Kathy Freston, is an achievable higher state if being. Freston writes: 'Quantum wellness is not about imposing big changes but about leaning into wellness, comfortably, adding things here and there to the thrust and taking baby steps toward the changes we want to achieve.' The quantum leap--or shift to quantum wellness occurs, according to Freston, as a result of many small steps. For example, Freston suggests baby steps to a more healthful diet--not meat eating one day and vegan the next. According to Freston, there are The Eight Pillars of Wellness: * Meditation * Visualization * Fun activities * Conscious eating * Exercise * Self-work * Spiritual practice * Service As an eco-friendly interior designer and feng shui practitioner, I was delighted to see Freston write about the importance of home in supporting our health. She tells us to remove clutter, resist buying new stuff unless we either love it or truly need it, and to use as little chemicals 'cleaning products, personal care products,' as possible. This is very good advice, as the home definitely affects our well-being. For a complete guide to greening your home 'as well as making it beautiful and energetically vibrant' for optimal wellness, read, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet. As previously mentioned, Freston supports veganism for optimal health. Understanding that the transition from omnivore to vegetarian can be difficult and that veganism is almost impossible for many of us to comprehend, she describes her own process and offers many helpful tips for the reader to adapt. According to Freston, living the vegan lifestyle is empowering. The book also contains vegetarian and vegan recipes to help us make the transition in our diets. Freston covers a lot of ground in Quantum Wellness, including dealing with addictions and fears and questions to ask yourself when you aren't feeling 100%. As an extroverted person, I have a hard time with some of these sections. Some people love to ask themselves questions and ponder...I either meditate or take a hike when I'm feeling sad, mad or whatever and that generally works for me. because of this, I got overwhelmed with all the suggestions of things to do to achieve perfect wellness. On the other hand, I love that she suggests having some fun everyday. Overall, a very good and inspirational book.

    Quantum Wellness: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Health and Happiness

    Having a bit of fun along the way to Quantum Wellness, Freston's book encourages each of us to take steps along the road to living a healthy, spiritual lifestyle. That she has encouraged animal loving, compassionate Oprah to understand that being spiritual means not eating the animals that one profeeses to love is just wonderful. Readers will surely take a step, whether it is large or small, along the passageway to happiness. A powerful book for sure!

    She has even convinced Oprah to try a vegan diet! While I haven't finished the book, I love the optimistic tone and the realistic advice--I am a vegan and I know that a vegan diet is better for the planet, people, and animals. I can't wait to read more of Freston's work.

    Striving to do more

    As a vegan who constantly strives to be a better, well-rounded person, Freston¿s book looks exactly like the direction I need. The Eight Pillars of Wellness are actually understandable and very achievable. Overall, the point seems to be to stop and actually think. Think about what you eat, think about your body, life, and soul. Plus, and this I find to be extremely important, don¿t forget to have fun. I heard Oprah will be attempting this transformation, and I am not far behind. I know how much better I feel just being a vegan, I can¿t wait to read this book and continue down that path.

    Amazing book!

    I learned so much about how to live a spirtual, compassion filled life from this book. This is one of my "go to" books, I have read this book many times. I love the recipes in the back, many of them i make over & over. I recommend this to anyone who wonders why they feel empty and are searching for some peace in their lives.

    This book changed my life in a QUANTUM way!!!

    I have always been someone who tries to take care of myself in the mental, physical, and emotional way, but I have never really recognized the true connection of the 3 until Kathy Freston's book, Quantum Wellness. Kathy talks of so many tiny things that we take for granted, since we tend to live in our routines without taking account for things, and reminds us to live consciously---in SUCH a kind and easy way. She recommends "leaning" into things and not take on too much, just what you can now, to make yourself and the world a better place. I am in week 1 of her cleanse and I have truly never FELT BETTER in my entire life. It's just too easy and too great and I am SO thankful to Kathy and this book! A must read.
