DR. WEIL'S HEAD-TO-TOE WELLNESS GUIDE CAN HELP ANYONE PREVENT DISEASE AND PROMOTE NATURAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS
For Immediate Release:
PHOENIX (May 5th, 2009) To provide consumers with an interactive natural health and wellness guide that can help them make better health choices, Andrew Weil, M.D., world-renowned leader in integrative medicine, today announced the launch of his unique Head-to-Toe Wellness Guide. This guide "covers a variety of common health concerns and explains how small lifestyle changes can help to moderate each and promote better overall health," said Dr. Weil.
"This guide combines the explanatory power of graphic animation with the worldwide reach of the internet," he said. "I hope it will engage and inform people of all ages."
Dr. Weil's Head-to-Toe Wellness Guide divides a graphic of the human body into nine sections:brain, vision, heart, lung, bone and joint, digestion, energy, and immune system and stress. Each section has information on how to reduce or prevent diseases specific to those areas through lifestyle, nutrition, and supplementation. The guide includes links to learn more and a printable version.
"It addresses problems that are specific to certain parts or functions of the body," said Dr. Weil, "but most of the recommendations you'll find there also benefit health generally. So many people who use it to address a particular condition may discover that their overall health is improved."
Users will find advice on:
- Lifestyle, such as suggestions on increasing certain behaviors and decreasing others.
- Nutrition, including what to add to your diet, what to minimize, and why.
- Supplements and herbs, which in many cases are more effective and less toxic than pharmaceuticals.
Users can access Dr. Weil's Head-to-Toe Wellness Guideon DrWeil.com, or visit Dr. Weil's subscription website, Dr. Weil on Healthy Aging.
Both sites provide interactive and printable versions of the natural health and wellness guide. The Dr. Weil on Healthy Aging version also includes links to recipes utilizing the suggested foods, as well as a total of over 200 recipes that conform to Dr. Weil's recommended anti-inflammatory diet.
Andrew Weil, M.D., combines a Harvard medical degree with a lifetime of practicing natural and preventive medicine. Twice featured on the cover of TIME magazine and author of 10 books that have sold over 10 million copies, Dr. Weil has become "The voice of reason in a deeply divided world," according to the San Francisco Examiner.
