Publisher's Summary

A much-needed program to prevent and reverse disease, and discover a path to sustainable, long-term health from an acclaimed international doctor and star of the BBC program Doctor in the House.

How to Make Disease Disappear is Dr. Rangan Chatterjee’s revolutionary, yet simple guide to better health - a much-needed, accessible plan that will help you take back control of your health and your life.

A physician dedicated to finding the root cause of ill health rather than simply suppressing symptoms with drugs, Dr. Chatterjee passionately advocates and follows a philosophy that lifestyle and nutrition are first-line medicine and the cornerstone of good health. Drawing on cutting edge research and his own experiences as a doctor, he argues that the secret to preventing disease and achieving wellness revolves around four critical pillars: food, relaxation, sleep, and movement. By making small, incremental changes in each of these key areas, you can create and maintain good health - and alleviate and prevent illness. As Dr. Chatterjee, reveals we can reverse and make disease disappear without a complete overhaul of our lifestyle.

His dynamic, user-friendly approach is not about excelling at any one pillar. What matters is balance in every area of your life, which includes:

  • Me-time every day
  • An electronic-free Sabbath once a week
  • Retraining your taste buds
  • Daily micro-fasts
  • Movement snacking
  • A bedtime routine

Practical and life-changing, How to Make Disease Disappear is an inspiring and easy-to-follow guide to better health and happiness.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

Excellent approach!

This is an excellent book on getting back to the basics of healthier living. Dr. Chatterjee makes it seem very achievable and realistic. I am a registered nurse and diabetes educator, I found this very inspiring for myself and for my practice. It puts what healthcare should be back into perspective.

Simple Tips for Improving Health

Dr Chatterjee has decided to stop focusing on relieving symptoms of disease in his practice, and instead focus on the underlying health issues of his individual patients. In this book, he covers recommendations for a healthy life that could easily fit into your everyday routine, no matter your age, occupation, or where you live. His general philosophy is "do what you can" and generally assess your efforts to your own standard with a goal of improvement as you can. He acknowledges the shortfalls of this approach (surgery, medicine, and more aggressive treatment still have their place).

In broad strokes, Dr Chatterjee wants to help you eat, sleep, and move (preferably outdoors). He talks about the benefit of morning sunlight, the harm of evening screen light, and the need for full and complete sleep in a dark atmosphere (at least as often as you can). He talks about how when exercise is a chore, performed indoors in a gym, that many people may be doing more harm to their overall health than good. He talks about the need to balance how you move (not simply focusing on the "mirror muscles"), and how weight training can change the relationship between your muscles in unhealthy ways.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. Much of it can be found in the myriad of other health related books, but there are passages where you feel that Dr. Chatterjee wrote this to make a positive impact on your own health, and he avoids being trendy in favor of being practical. In addition, he points out that your own health will never be studied to the extent it needs to be in order to prescribe how well any other medical study will apply in your personal case. Even in areas where promise is shown but the studies are incomplete, it could be decades or a lifetime before the medical community understands "why" or "how" a thing affects our general health.

Life changing!

Fantastic, actionable, completely achievable! I have changed aspects of my own life after listening to this book and already feel better. I’m a physician and have started to help patients implement some of these strategies in their own lives and have recommended this book and Dr. Chatterjee’s podcast wholeheartedly. This is the direction that medical care should focus on to help improve patient’s lives and prevent disease.
