Steve Dimon believes that 80% of heart attacks, strokes, and cancers, as well as diabetes and obesity are preventable, treatable, and beatable through proper diet, nutrition, exercise, supplementation, and lifestyle change. And he's living proof of that.
On April 22, 2012 he suffered an Ischemic stroke. Paralyzed from head to toe on his left side, he spent a month in two different hospitals and three months in outpatient therapy.
To look at Steve today, you wouldn't believe that he had a stroke. He has literally turned back the clock and reversed all of his metabolic syndrome symptoms. His doctors use two words to describe his recovery: miraculous and amazing. Or, how Dr. George Shannon put it: He's an example of how hard work and determination can help overcome seemingly impossible odds.
In his handbook Health, Wellness & Longevity, Steve Dimon, for the first time, takes listeners through various occurrences, causes, and signs of a stroke as well as outlines the roots of other modern diseases, before outlining a detailed protocol, allowing us all to take control of our health.
Reaching far beyond the usual stroke treatment options and stroke recovery programs, Steve Dimon's plan is based on his own experience transforming from a morbidly obese 64 year old to a healthy, young 67 year old with a 32-inch waistline and 6.5% body fat.
But Steve Dimon doesn't stop there. A strong believer that average isn't good enough when it comes to your health, he has dug deep into the current scientific research to provide listeners with a cutting edge solution for disease prevention and reversal, which includes: A formula for early recognition of stroke symptoms; innovative ways to reduce stress; easy to prepare recipes for weight loss; simple but effective workout routines that will get results; the psychology behind a lifestyle change; immune system basics and supplement guides and much more.
Don't wait for a life threatening or near death experience, take control of your health today!
I found the subject and content interesting. There is usable information here. I approach it as a take what works for you and leave what doesn't.
This isn't a short book and there is a good deal to process through. I back-tracked often to be sure that I grasped the content.
The narration is difficult to get through. It was slow and monotone. Not inappropriate for a text book but not attention holding enough to keep the listener in the moment.

This is not your typical sit down and listen to audio book. It is a little slow and boring for that. But it is definitely worth having in your library and listening to occasionally
I really enjoyed listening to this audio! It provided tons of helpful information on living your healthiest life. I got a lot of tips that I plan on implementing in my life and suggesting to my husband. Highly recommend this one to anyone who is interested in their health and wellness.

This is so incredibly densely packed with good information that I despaired, thinking I'd have to sit and listen through a second time with a notebook. But *Spoiler Alert* - don't despair! Periodically a code is given to allow the listener to download the valuable lists.
There's a certain amount of repetition, but this ensures that no matter which section you find of interest, it will cross-reference and tell you where important subtopics are covered in more depth.
I was thrilled to receive this audiobook as a review copy, given the cost of the paper version at the time of my listening is half a week's food budget for me. I was hesitant to spend so much. But shortly after I started listening, I began experimenting with the author's advice and discovered the basics alone have made an incredible difference in my health. Enough that I will be following the author's recommendations in greater depth.
The section on which fruits are more prone to contamination and which I can save money on when I can't afford to fully pursue organic foods (the Filthy Fourteen) is a saver. And learning to find hidden sugars and how a name brand spaghetti sauce has more sugar than a Krispy Kreme donut - well worth the listen. Watching my clothes loosen just in the short time it's taken me to give a first listen (and you'll want to go back again to refresh and go into greater detail) is an added side effect.
The author cites his sources, has intriguing quotations, and provides checklists and recommendations. Best of all, he explains how he came to write this book following a personal health crisis. Learning how often the first symptom of a major health problem is death certainly got my attention!
The sheer encyclopedic breadth as well as depth makes this book a good choice if you can only buy one. Hopefully my review gives a clue how much good information is packed in. I can't tell you how many times I stopped to jot something down before I realized how much was provided on his website.
