Dr. Tim Hennessy has skillfully drawn on his life experiences to put together this new book he has written. Recalled to Health functions as both a personal memoir of his path to becoming a doctor and a useful medical guide to achieving and keeping good health. Written over a five-year period in between his work as a doctor and his other professional and personal pursuits, Dr. Hennessy says the initial impetus for it came from his bimonthly e-mail health newsletter, H-mail: Medical Education Made Easy.
Self-described as conservative with medicine, Hennessy's focus for this book is to promote freedom by inspiring one and all to live healthier lives, in the process becoming less dependent on medications and the flawed healthcare system, and more emboldened to live life to its fullest, unimpeded by the physical constraints of poor health. By providing a medical foundation that will lead to a better understanding of medical topics, the doctor believes that Recalled to Health can empower readers to take charge of their own health.
Cholesterol, blood pressure, diet and weight management, exercise, sleeping habits, and the role of nature in health are some of the topics discussed in full here, along with suggestions for optimum actions, behaviors, and treatments. Each of the chapters end with a helpful summary of tips, and the back of the book contains numerous, fully cited references listed by chapters as well as a full index.
You can use this first-rate new book to help maintain your present good health, or you can use it to help reclaim your former good health. Either way, it will help you strengthen your mind so you can strengthen your body. And what more can anyone ask of a book on health?
