With numerous treatment examples, naturopathic doctor Aarti Patel illustrates how health depends upon all that makes up an individual, including one's social involvement and approach to life. She compares symptomatic treatment: "I am stressed, please give me stress-buster medication!" with the natural approach she employs, and demonstrates how various aspects of one's life - or way of life - contribute to one's ailments. For adherents of allopathic medicine, this work can be an eye-opener. For all others practicing herbal and natural medicine, it is a compelling account from a qualified practitioner.

    "A joy to read." “The truth is, there is no medicine you can take that will replace what you can do for your own health.” In this quote naturopath and author, Aarti Patel, reminds us we have the power to heal our own bodies. There was so much in Aarti Patel’s well-written book that I resonated with. Diet and stress are elements of our life that we can control with a few lifestyle changes, and our minds, possibly our strongest tool, can influence our health positively.

There was so much in Aarti Patel’s well-written book that I resonated with. Diet and stress are elements of our life that we can control with a few lifestyle changes, and our minds, possibly our strongest tool, can influence our health positively. The author doesn’t scare-monger about food, toxins and the environment and points out that with a few changes everyone can enhance their own well-being. “Health is an art,” and for those of you who have never considered a naturopath or are unfamiliar with their work, this book uses a commonsense approach that anyone can follow. For me, it was a joy to read as I am currently seeing a naturopath for an underactive thyroid and it gave me reassurance that I am on the right path to healing. Maxine

    I really enjoyed the out of the box thinking of this novel, now days when you go to the doctor most times you will leave with a prescription to fix everything. Now days it seems that prescriptions have become a fix it all with all the different medicines about. I really like her approach on finding out what works best for you and a not fix it all method! I really enjoyed this book and the authors previous book and i will definitely look out for her next one!

    I received my free ebook of “The Art of Health” by author and naturopathic doctor Aarti Patel, this past week. The title suggests to me that there might be a creative approach to one’s health. Does it involve being artistic? I wonder this as I am intrigued enough to start reading it straightaway. As a side note, experts advise not to review books if you have a strong feeling about the subject or the author. So here is your warning; I do have strong feelings about how our health system is run. Pa I received my free ebook of “The Art of Health” by author and naturopathic doctor Aarti Patel, this past week. The title suggests to me that there might be a creative approach to one’s health. Does it involve being artistic? I wonder this as I am intrigued enough to start reading it straightaway. As a side note, experts advise not to review books if you have a strong feeling about the subject or the author. So here is your warning; I do have strong feelings about how our health system is run. Particularly to what I refer to as the “Elvisitis”, prescribing medication for every complaint. The pharmaceutical ads on the TV keep me up at night. I either need to stop watching TV or do something about it. I’ve decided to do something about it by writing this review. Right away, Dr. Patel talks about mind-body connection, advising ‘balance’ in all areas of life and doesn’t focus on symptoms. What? This is a creative approach, I must have died and gone to heaven. She blows my preconceived ideas about prescription pads being on an automated system, out of the water. If that is not enough, Dr. Patel goes even further, generously offering the reader writing assignments to explore their own health while detailing a variety of case studies, providing clear examples to follow. Is this woman for real? It gets better. Dr. Patel says, “Sometimes if we let the problem exits without looking for an immediate solution, it can actually get better naturally.” Mic drop, Elivs has left the building! Elvis left because Dr. Patel wouldn’t provide him a script and because she told him he was “an authority” of his own health. Other doctors have done this mind body approach to health, like Dr.Christiane Northrup, Dr. Caroline Myss and Dr.Mona Lisa Schulz. And don’t forget Louise Hay. Dr. Patel is different, her approach is straight forward and takes the ‘woo-woo’ out of it. By allowing a practical approach to fining your own ‘intuitive’ guidance and some ‘self-love’ homework, she provides assurance that you have the answers to your own health issues. If you are ready to take responsibility for your health, this book is for you. And, no, there are no art assignments in here but you are given some fantastic thought provoking writing assignments to get started looking at your health differently.(That is the creative part.) As I fall asleep tonight, I will fantasize that Dr. Patel’s approach will be instituted into the training protocol for every doctor. Thank you Dr. Patel for restoring my faith, I know all doctors care but bless you for using your heart and your mind together in your practice and providing ‘simple and powerful keys for creating health’ as your subheading suggests.

    This is a quick, easy-to-read book that really helps guide the reader to understand what's best for their own health without shouting the do's and don'ts of what a person thinks they SHOULD be doing into their ear. Instead, the author encourages us to find what works best for ourselves whenever it comes down to our health. Patel does a great job of letting us know that we are the boss of our body and that we should be our own advocates.

Instead, the author encourages us to find what works best for ourselves whenever it comes down to our health. Patel does a great job of letting us know that we are the boss of our body and that we should be our own advocates. I also learned something that I knew all along, really, but needed to be reminded of--I have to be selfish in order to be healthy. She stresses this a lot and I'm glad she does; there is great advice in this book about it. Speaking of "stress", it affects the body in so many ways and the author acknowledges that very well. I liked the advice Patel gives in general, the workbook-like questions that honestly make you think about your health and yourself, and just how well-written this book is. The only thing that bothered me a bit was how many case studies were involved. It became a bit of an interruption for me now and then. Overall, however, I would recommend this book and I enjoyed it.

The author describes her personal experience with traditional medicine. She developed a curiosity and wonder about natural healing and making a connection between health and lifestyle. She was fascinated by how each body system worked in union with each other. It is beneficial to understand the relationship between stress and emotions on your hormones which in turn affect your digestive system. The body gives you signals if you pay attention which could help you prevent a serious or chronic condition. The uncomfortable feelings of imbalance are your body’s way to communicate to you. The author proposes exercises and questions within the book to help you become aware of your body sensors. There are suggestions on ways in which you can manage and ease the conditions which can ultimately culminate into a syndrome of symptoms if ignored. The author sums it best with the following comment: “The truth is, there is no medicine you can take that will replace what you can do for your own health.”

    Common sense advice that asks every reader to do the one of the hardest things in the world: pay attention to your body and have the kindness for yourself to prioritize your needs whenever possible. Strikes a Buddhist cord for present awareness and working with inevitable changes in life. It's refreshing since many self-help books stress discipline, scientific terminology, and hard guidelines. The Art of Health strikes that welcome balance between self-care and professional help. The best sort of Common sense advice that asks every reader to do the one of the hardest things in the world: pay attention to your body and have the kindness for yourself to prioritize your needs whenever possible. Strikes a Buddhist cord for present awareness and working with inevitable changes in life. It's refreshing since many self-help books stress discipline, scientific terminology, and hard guidelines. The Art of Health strikes that welcome balance between self-care and professional help. The best sort of health care, really. Because it accepts that everyone's bodies are not made the same and tries to avoid condemning people for their choices. Only addressing the mindset and lifestyle changes. Doctors can only do so much! I liked how Patel's short patient stories reflect the pros and cons of relying too hard on both practices. Many of them show the dangers of going to the extremes. Patel's writing is casual and mostly free of technobabble. Can be read it in a single sitting. Doing the suggested exercises? Much longer. None of it is directing you to do anything specific, it's you constantly reassessing and answering the questions about yourself. And that's a lifelong practice, whether it is about your health or not. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

    *I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review.* In this book, Dr. Patel uses examples of patients she has treated to illustrate each of the principles and pieces of advice. The case studies make it easy to relate to the specific issue at hand, and understand how it can impact or affect one's health. The book is simple, easy-to-read and understand, which is unlike many books on health and medicine. I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot from it.

I highly recommend it for anyone interested in good health in general or specifically improving their health. I read a lot on nutrition and health in general, and didn't think there was a lot I would get out of this book other than specific platitudes. That wasn’t the case at all. I learned about surprising connections between mind and body that can impact your health and either support or prevent your healing. While many of the concepts might be previously familiar, I was surprised to see how medically relevant they were, and how practicing them can literally help you become healthier.

The Art of Health: Simple and Powerful Keys for Creating Health in Your Life by Aarti Patel is an insightful book that gives ample information about a relevant topic, health, and will make readers look at it in a different manner. The author uses her years of experience and comes up with good techniques and tips, advising readers to stay true to who they are throughout while practicing the art of health. The book also encourages readers to develop a real connection with their bodies and health so that they can achieve noticeable benefits in how they look and how they feel. Reading this book will motivate readers to understand their symptoms, become experts in their own health, and develop skills to take care of themselves. I like the author's approach to the topic. Instead of making it purely medical, she handles it in a way that can be comprehended by everyone. The book deals with how to pay attention to your body and its signals, explores why fatigue is so common today, helps bring you back to the core of your health, and the role of lifestyle in how we feel. The author talks about the underlying mind-body connections in health, the effects of control and suppression on the body, and many other topics that will make readers look beyond the formulaic approach of the medical system. This book will help readers think more about health, and the challenge questions in the book are good enough to help readers understand their tiredness and lack of energy. It is a good book to learn about health from a balanced view point.

    I truly enjoyed this book. The language is clear. The doctor goes over ALL areas of health and gives examples of client cases that illustrates each area she covers. This is very helpful because if the concept area she is covering is "foreign" to you, offering a client case helps give insight into how you can apply these new concepts about health in your own life. Also the client cases that are presented are about everyday people experiencing common health challenges like acne, fibromyalgia, dige I truly enjoyed this book. The language is clear.

Also the client cases that are presented are about everyday people experiencing common health challenges like acne, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, chronic fatigue etc. The doctor wants the reader to understand some of the signals the body will "show" you when there is an imbalance. So reading about how the doctor treated the clients lends to a greater understanding of what body "signals" are and what to look for. My favorite chapter is the 2nd to last chapter entitled, "Doctor, Why am I so Tired?" Without giving anything away, who hasn't wanted to ask their doctor this question? This book is so well written and the tone of the writing feels like a knowledgeable, passionate, and caring professional giving sound advice without judging. There are also "challenge question" that the reader can ask themselves as it relates to each chapter regarding each area of health that is covered. If you didn't understand how to cultivate good health before, working with your own body's natural healing processes, you will feel so much better after reading this book! Highly recommend!

    I think it is probably in bad taste to rate a book about good health with alcohol but hey it's what I do.This book is well put together and easy to understand for those who are not so medically inclined. I found it easy to navigate and it provided great insight and knowledge that made me at ease with the information I was being provided was accurate and from a knowledgeable source. There are so many "health" books out there that are filled with un-true "facts" and guides that are just garbage.

The book does take a very proactive approach to considering your whole health. I found the writing easy to understand, although I think because so much of the book felt like common sense to me, I could easily have edited the text down. I skimmed several parts. I did particularly enjoy the chapter on control. I don't think I often enough reflect on where my desire to have control is overwhelmed by the fact I have little or no control over a specific situation. There are a myriad of exercises and challenge questions scattered throughout the book. I could see this being a good book to read with a journal next to you or one to pick up and practice an exercise regularly for a bit to try to build consciousness around a particular area.
