Dr. Tim Hennessy has skillfully drawn on his life experiences to put together Recalled to Health. This book functions as both a personal memoir of his path to becoming a doctor and a useful medical guide to achieving and maintaining 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 the book came from his bimonthly email health newsletter, Hmail: Medical Education Made Easy.
Self-described as conservative with medicine, Hennessy’s focus for this book is to promote freedom by inspiring people to live healthier lives, in the process becoming less dependent on medications and the flawed health care 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 listeners 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 chapter ends with a helpful summary of tips.
You can use this first-rate 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. What more can anyone ask of a book on health?
