Who does not want to be healthier? Now in paperback: the book that Andrew Weil calls “offbeat, informative, and fun . . . a great read,” and that has been praised as “a delightful dance through science” (New York Times bestselling author Mark Hyman, M.D.) and as a “remarkable and insightful book [that] offers you the chance to achieve the best health of your life” (Mark Liponis, M.D., Medical Director, Canyon Ranch).Written by bestselling author Gene Stone, The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick arose from his desire to discover what might actually prevent him from getting sick himself. This book, the result of that exploration, tells the stories of twenty-five people who each possess a different secret of excellent health—a secret that makes sense and that Stone discovered has a true scientific underpinning. There are food secrets—why to take garlic and vitamin C, eat more probiotics, becomea vegan, drink a tonic of brewer’s yeast. Exercise secrets—the benefits of lifting weights, the power of stretching. Environmental secrets—living in a Blue Zone, understanding the value of germs. Emotional secrets—seek out and stay in touch with friends, cultivate your spirituality. Physical secrets—nap more, take cold showers in the morning. And the wisdom that goes back generations: Yes, chicken soup works.The stories make it personal, the research makes it real, and the do-it-yourself information shows how to integrate each secret into your own life, and become the next person who never gets sick.
More than a how-to for staying well, The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick is an entertaining—not to mention informative—lesson on health, history and human ingenuity.

--Mark Hyman, M.D., New York Times bestselling author, Ultramind: How to Fix Your Broken Brain by Healing Your Body First
This remarkable and insightful book offers you the chance to achieve the best health of your life—if you’re willing to embrace some of its excellent advice. I’ve been a doctor for more than two decades and even I learned some new ways to stay well.
--Mark Liponis, M.D., Medical Director, Canyon Ranch
The concept of people never getting sick is foreign to most physicians, it goes against our teachings about disease. However, Gene Stone has compiled a fascinating book of stories, research, and advice about such people--the people we as doctors never see.
--Adam L. Kushner, MD, MPH, FACS, Founder and Director, Surgeons OverSeas (SOS)
Offbeat, informative, and fun, this original book reveals the health secrets of people who never get sick--some right on, some you'd never expect. I've used a few of them myself and am definitely going to experiment with others. A great read.
--Andrew Weil, MD, author of Spontaneous Healing
This is a one-of-a-kind masterfully researched encyclopedic reference of lifestyle concepts reputed to result in enduring health benefits. Through this information, plus trial and error, the reader can select those "secrets" that are individually wisest. A definite must-read.
