There are four sections in this book, and at the end is a “Conclusion”.
Section 1: Establish a Health Champion Mindset
Section 2: Build and Leverage Your Health Champion Team
Section 3: Persevere
Section 4: On Chronic Pain and Triathlons
Through these sections you’ll read how to set appropriate goals, select the right health professionals, fully implement potential solutions and more. It guides you step by step so that you can get your thoughts straight about your symptoms and how to go about setting up a plan that will help you the most. One of the things that I liked about the book was the information on selecting a doctor and surrounding yourself with positive people. I also liked the information in Section 4, chapter ten on what to or not to eat, supplements, hydration, strength training, yoga, massage, quality sleep and more. One of the things the author talks about is practicing gratitude. I always try to be grateful for everything in my life, I was glad to see this in her book. I think a positive attitude is very important to your health.
This book is packed with information that is easy to understand. It was much more in depth than I was expecting.
It you or anyone you know has chronic pain, I would highly recommend this book.
