Imagine: A Whole New Kind of Medical Care by Dr. Tina Marcantel
Online PR News – 08-October-2012 –There is a “sleeping giant” being roused in America, today. Its movement and voice is being felt and heard throughout the medical community, according to Dr. Tina Marcantel. Rather than depend entirely on those medical professionals patients encounter on every doctor visit, she tells us, today’s patients are taking charge of their care, educating themselves, daring, in their quest for answers, to “Imagine a whole different kind of medical care.”
Dr. Marcantel’s new book sets the stage for today’s informed patient. Her “philosophy of care” outlines a new focus on personal health, including detailed advice on hormonal interactions and their effect on good health. As the ones most often consigned to the tenets of good health in the home, women will resonate with the details on menopause, adrenal fatigue and the coverage of thyroid issues.
Sharing personal experiences from a background in both conventional and naturopathic healthcare, Dr. Marcantel brings the reader on a journey along the "river of health" as they work toward a more “rewarding life”—lived in good health.
“I’ve been a health care provider for over thirty years,” Dr. Marcantel says. “I believe these changes are an exciting and vital new direction to seeing a healthier population in our nation.”
“Imagine: A Whole Different Kind of Medical Care is the guide I wish I'd had when beginning my naturopathic journey years ago. The book is an outstanding introduction to what naturopathic medicine really is, and covers many areas so often ignored in today’s typical medical climate,” says Michele Miller, author of The Soccer Mom Myth. “Once you start reading, you’ll recognize yourself everywhere throughout the book. You won’t be able to put it down.”
From the opening chapters on “The Patient/Doctor Relationship” to the concluding “Alternative Therapies” and through a section of recipes designed to give readers even more tools to better health, Dr. Marcantel brings the reader into the book through storytelling and education. The underlying focus, “We can’t remove sickness from the body; we can only add health,” inspires the reader to add the good health practices shared in the book, to her daily routine.
The old adage, “You are what you eat,” will resonate with every person who reads this book. Dr. Marcantel advises her readers to include flaxseed in their diet, calling it “nature’s wonder drug.” She asks, “Are you overdosing on food supplements?” and shares the story of a patient named “Alice” where the answer to the question, “What foods are making you sick?” is a lesson on food sensitivity as opposed to food allergy. The end result is recognition that eating right is vital to good health.
Sprinkled throughout the book are cartoon images that bring the words to life, adding a little humor to a serious discussion on the many health challenges people face, daily. The final content, a series of recipes Dr. Marcantel shares as part of her focus on good health practices, gives readers an immediate step to take to the ultimate goal of good health.
Imagine: A Whole Different Kind of Medical Care is a book you’ll want to talk about with family and friends, alike. At its core, it’s a book meant for sharing.
