I like to read. It’s what I do to relax as well as educate myself. As a matter of fact I’ve been reading several books a week for the majority of my adult life; if you do the math you’ll figure out that it’s a lot of books. I can even tell you the five books I’ve read that have had the greatest influence on me. Here they are:
- The Bible
- The Tao of Jeet Kune Do – Bruce Lee
- The Filipino Martial Arts – Dan Inosanto
- On Combat – Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
- The Gift of Fear – Gavin De Becker
It’s a pretty eclectic list but I have to add a new book to the top five: Strong Medicine by Dr. Chris Hardy and Marty Gallagher. Any book that gets added to the above list has to have a lot to offer and Strong Medicine fits the bill. Coming in at a massive 575 pages it will fill in the blanks in your understanding of how your body works right down to a molecular level. Through illustrations and easy to manage terminology you will be able to grasp the complex mechanisms that cause obesity, contribute to diabetes, accelerate heart disease, and exacerbates chronic inflammation. Not content with just giving you the knowledge on how these life threatening, and potentially life ending conditions are developed, it also gives you a step by step plan to reverse their progress and set you on the path to health.
The information contained in this book is life changing and paradigm shifting. If you take the time to read and digest the information that the authors have painstakingly assembled you will be blessed with the greatest gift of all: health. I challenge you to read this book and not have your understanding of food and its impact on your health and lifestyle changed.
NOTE: Strong Medicine is published by Dragon Door Publications and is available through their website.
