Live and Age Well
Throughout her forty-five years as a registered nurse, Karen Eddings has seen close-up how our traditional health care system has changed into a sick care system. Her mission, along with many other advocates for reform discussed in this book, intends to bring health back to health care by encouraging more emphasis on self-care using our body’s innate power to heal through nutrition, sleep, movement, self-awareness, sound and more.
In this practical guide to better health and well-being, the author describes her own self-healing journey from chronic illnesses to abundant wellness, energy, and health at the age of sixty-seven. She provides a fresh perspective on how our minds and bodies can heal themselves, drawing both from her work in traditional medicine and her rich experience as an integrative healing practitioner.
Karen has dedicated much of her life to researching, experiencing, and teaching holistic nutrition, yoga, medical chi-gong, breath and mindfulness, iridology,
reflexology, biofeedback, and sound healing. Karen’s passion for health and deep knowledge of healing shines through every topic she covers. In A Journey in Self-Care to Live and Age Well with Food, Sleep and Sound as Medicine, Karen explains how our minds and bodies are created to heal themselves through self-care, self-regulation, nourishing foods, emotional freedom, and movement. She shares how we can influence our mental and emotional health and the “gut-brain connection” through the healing power of sound, restorative sleep, mindfulness, and connections with the earth.
Throughout our lifespans, we all age, so this book is not an “anti-aging” book. The research, recipes, reflections, and exercises included in it, however, provide you with the tools to live and age well through a flexible, common-sense approach to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
People from all walks of life can benefit from Karen’s:
- Personal accounts of healing and being healed.
- Clear descriptions of the science behind ancient lifestyle practices.
- Explanation of the emerging field of epigenetics and how our lifestyle choices influence our genes promoting health or disease.
- Reasons why and therapies to nourish our cells for living long and well.
This book also includes detailed sections on how to use food as medicine and creating a wellness kitchen; how to access and why your energy molecules, ketones, will help you live and age well with a vegetarian lifestyle; and wellness for your pet and the planet. Plus…why and how to use CBD for you and/or your pet.
Whether you’re in need of a total lifestyle makeover or just a few changes to help you feel better, A Journey in Self-Care offers the wisdom, insight, and tried-and-true practices you need to live and age well.
