The secrets of people who never get sick
What They Know, Why It Works, and How It Can Work for You
In THE SECRETS OF PEOPLE WHO NEVER GET SICK (Workman, £16.99), author Gene Stone examines the lives of 25 people who make the claim: "I never get sick" to find out their secrets of excellent health. Each preventative practice is then examined as Stone explores the science behind the claim.
From getting rid of stress and taking daily naps to eating dirt and running, THE SECRETS OF PEOPLE WHO NEVER GET SICK is a book filled with wisdom developed-not by a university research laboratory-but by everyday people living their lives. And whether the origin of the practice is an old wives' tale or just common sense, science has plenty of evidence as to why these techniques might be highly effective.
There are food secrets (garlic, a tonic of brewer's yeast, vitamin C, probiotics and veganism); exercise secrets (running, lifting weights, stretching and yoga); lifestyle secrets (cold showers every morning, naps); environmental secrets (living in a Blue Zone or exposing yourself to enough germs); and emotional secrets (seeking out friends, cultivating spirituality, positive thinking), among others.
THE SECRETS OF PEOPLE WHO NEVER GET SICK is a one-of-a-kind, a meticulously 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 appeal.
