How Healers Heal – by Dr. Shilpi Pradhan

First note: the listed author here is in fact the compiler, with the authors being a collection of no fewer than 33 board-certified lifestyle medicine physicians. So, we’re not getting just a single person’s opinions/bias here!

But what is lifestyle medicine? This book holds the six pillars of lifestyle medicine to be:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Physical activity
  3. Stress management
  4. Restorative sleep
  5. Social connections
  6. Avoidance of risky substances

…and those things are what we read about throughout the book, both in highly educational mini-lecture form, and sometimes highly personal storytelling.

It’s not just a “do these things” book, though yes, there’s a large part of that. It also covers wide topics, from COVID to alopecia, burnout to grief, immune disorders to mysterious chest pains (and how such mysteries are unravelled, when taken seriously).

One of the greatest strengths of this book is that it’s very much “medicine, as it should be”, so that the reader knows how to recognize the difference.

Bottom line: this book doesn’t fit into a very neat category, but it’s a very worthwhile book to read, and one that could help inform a decision that changes the entire path of your life or that of a loved one.
