A review of the book More Health, Less Care by Peter J Weiss, M.D.
This small book is a huge gem. It is very refreshing to have a book written by a medical doctor who takes into account that people are not like cars; people do need to be treated holistically by the medical profession. We as patients also need to remove our dependence on the medical profession and the “magic” pills and to become responsible for our own health and well-being. Dr Weiss provides a guide line as well as examples to help us to do that.
Dr Weiss encourages us to take into account not only our physical health, but also our emotional and spiritual health as well, because as many of us are aware, they are all intertwined. He strongly suggests that we write our own “Personal Prescription for Good Health”. Dr Weiss encourages us to gather a team to support us with our health goals – not just to rely on a doctor but friends, wellness coaches, pharmacists and other health professionals. He also suggests having an open mind and to look at alternatives.
Dr Weiss does encourage people to take a multi-vitamin (which is an excellent start to a nutritional program). I would also recommend people to also begin taking advanced quality (nutriceuticals) multi-minerals, antioxidants and omega-3’s on a daily basis. A multi-vitamin on its own may be better than nothing but adding the others to the mix may make a greater improvement.
Currently I have three people in my life who may benefit from reading this book, but I think only one of them is ready to make a change for the better. I was thinking of this one particular friend in the part of the book where Dr Weiss discusses willpower. This book also provides guidelines for Wellness Coaches to help their clients achieve their health goals.
By the end of the book you will have a full understanding of the meaning of the title. I read this book in one and a half hours because I am familiar with the concepts. The concepts may be new for many people so it is really helpful that Dr Weiss explains the how-to and he also provides examples of how these concepts can be put into practice. This a book that I am very pleased to have in my toolbox.
If you are ready to write your own “Personal Precription for Good Health” or know someone who is willing to make a change, you may wish to purchase More Health, Less Care from Amazon.com. It could make a difference between living or dying.
