“Vibrant is a wellness book that promises to be life-changing.” — Foreword Reviews
Stop thinking of your own well-being as something that's beyond your control.
Today's view of wellness is far too often fragmented, focusing on specific symptoms rather than the whole person. In Vibrant, Dr. Stacie Stephenson introduces readers to a new and empowering way of looking at health. A recognized leader in functional and integrative medicine, Stephenson has helped thousands by focusing not on treating disease, but on creating health-by giving individuals the knowledge, confidence, and inspiration they need to do so for themselves.
By the end of this life-changing book, readers will have the tools to transform their energy, weight, fitness, and general wellness, tackling everything from enhancing sleep quality to building an iron-clad immune system. Beginning with basics such as the truth about the best diet, the critical role of exercise in vitality and longevity, and the importance of human connection, Vibrant also dives deeper to give a holistic picture of health and how to achieve it. With helpful breakdowns on supplements, detoxification, and how to think about disease, this is much more than just another wellness book.
It's also packed with practical, useful features, including:
• Self-assessment tools to aid you in listening to your body • A foolproof two-week meal plan • 40 delicious, healthful chef-created recipes • 30 days of baby steps to start building the habit of health
With Stephenson's candid and conversational voice, Vibrant is like having a friend who also happens to be a leading health authority take you under her wing. Along with practical advice, she shares powerful insights that will change the way you think about everything from exercise to relationships, and sends readers off with an inspirational chapter on how health has a ripple effect that can change your family, your community, and help to create a more vibrant world.
With a step-by-step program for making foundational lifestyle shifts, Vibrant shows you how to reclaim your health and energy, reverse aging, and glow-not just on the outside, but from deep within yourself.
