And now here’s to Your Health and Well-Being:

Prime-timehealthPrime-Time Health: A Scientifically Proven Plan for Feeling Young and Living Longer by William Sears M.D., Martha Sears R.N.

Acclaimed pediatrician Dr. William Sears turns his attention to the “baby boomer” generation and offers a plan to improve their long-term health. Not surprisingly this requires taking control of one’s health, much like he had to do twelve years ago when diagnosed with cancer.

From that experience, Dr. Sears created a comprehensive, science based, head-to-toe program for living a long, fit life – and it worked. Now at the peak of health, Dr. Sears shares his program in PRIME-TIME HEALTH. Described as “engaging and deeply informative,” this book will hopefully motivate readers to make crucial behavior and lifestyle changes by exploring how to keep each body system healthy and delay the typical age-related problems.

Although we all know what we should do as well as not do to stay healthy, Dr. Sears explains the why and how these “should” habits and activities can easily become your lifestyle. What’s the secret? Simply put, make health a hobby!

Recommendation: Understanding is the key to good health and Prime-Time Health delivers solid information.

This author will be interviewed Tuesday, January 26th at 9:30 – 9:45 a.m. on It’s Your Health radio.

PattLind-KyleHeal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain: Applying the Exciting New Science of Brain Synchrony for Creativity, Peace and Presence by Patt Lind-Kyle

The author — therapist, trainer, and longtime meditator — writes about the relationship between meditation and the brain. Her book is divided into into two sections, that begins with an in-depth scientific discussion of the anatomy of the brain, its evolution, and how our thought processes work. By using an electroencephalograph, Patt Lind-Kyle has been able to measure and monitor mind states and identify when brain waves are out of balance. And then she presents brain research that shows how meditation can reshape the nature of the mind.

In Part 2 of Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain, readers will find a detailed discussion of how using mind-training techniques can help to bring about change in their mindset and thought patterns. With the use of an accompanying meditation CD, readers are led through several meditation techniques to discover what practical benefits might be applied to them.

Although one doesn’t need to be professionally creative to appreciate the potential of what this book might teach you, the lure is there and based on scientific evidence at that!

Recommendation: Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain is yet another book that explains the how and why…and makes sense.

This author will be interviewed Tuesday, February 2nd at 9:45 – 10:00 a.m. on It’s Your Health radio.
