If you are like many, you probably think you just don't have time to be healthy: It's too much work, and there's just too much conflicting information out there. Both leave you feeling powerless. But the best doctors know that an informed patient is a healthy patient. So before you lift your hands in defeat, know that great health is just a page away—and much easier to achieve than you think. After combing the very latest medical literature, the Doctors have isolated the seven factors that have been linked to the most vibrant, happiest, longest lives. The secret? Each body system (heart, brain, gut, skin) can be vastly improved with very small shifts in your lifestyle—most of which take less than five minutes to do. And whether it's adding cinnamon to your coffee to balance blood sugar, sipping cold water through a straw to nix nicotine cravings, or brushing and flossing your teeth before you eat each morning to prevent heart disease, all are easy fixes that anyone can make.
Utilizing the show's dynamic expert hosts, and based on interviews and research from the top authorities in multiple disciplines, The Doctors 5-Minute Health Hints is the one-stop source for readers looking for comprehensive, top-notch self-care advice and novel, cutting-edge tips, trivia, and information. Use these helpers as building blocks, and before you know it you're easily on your way to 24-hour health . . . while preventing disease, reversing aging, getting the most out of your annual checkup, and looking fantastic.
