Walt Larimore, well-known host of radio and television’s "Focus on Your Family’s Health," shares from a wealth of the latest medical research and experiences of physicians and patients worldwide in this new volume. Through his research and his own medical experience, Dr. Larimore has discovered ten essential principles that are necessary to become a highly healthy person.

The book moves a little slowly in the first few pages but then picks up "full speed" as you move to the self-evaluation which helps you to see how you are doing healthwise in four important areas: the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual. Of course, Seventh-day Adventists are well acquainted with this quartet of important areas of life! Among Larimore’s ten essentials are balance, self-care, forgiveness, relationships and more.

The author speaks so meaningfully about how the inner life affects physical health, and he shares wonderful stories of personal struggles to regain personal health. The book is replete with resources and information to help you along your way to being a highly healthy person. A great resource to have!
