Simple practices—a marriage of science and spirituality—that will help you take charge of your health.
“When we are feeling lost, we need a compass to know which direction will take us home. Susan Roberts has given us just that in Sustainable Health. As a well-seasoned occupational therapist, she has merged her considerable experience in treating the physical form with her long-time dedication to the practice of qigong in order to help us 'navigate a path to a more vibrant and happier life.' In this book, you will discover the simple and practical wisdom that emerges from understanding the deep relationships between the five forces of nature. This ecological wisdom has been passed down through the ages in every culture concerned with nurturing growth and is the foundation of Chinese medicine. Rather than living from one emergency to the next, Susan provides practical exercises that offer us an opportunity to orient ourselves within a bigger field of ecology that unifies body, mind, and spirit, enabling us to truly personalize our journey towards sustainable health.” — Stephen Cowan, MD, author of Fire Child, Water Child: How Understanding the Five Types of ADHD Can Help You Improve Your Child's Self-Esteem and Attention
“Roberts has ingeniously interwoven ideas, beliefs, and practices from physics, traditional Chinese medicine, neurophysiology, immunology, epigenetic, and evolutionary biology to create a Healing Compass: a tool to help people develop and sustain a holistic healthy life. Fascinating, fun, therapeutic activities help readers adjust and balance their daily habits, beliefs, bodily processes, movement, emotions, and sensory and mental processing. Sustainable Health is applicable to all human beings!” — Pat Precin, PhD, PsyaD, OTR/L, LP, NCPsyA, FAOTA, Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy, Touro College
“Featuring an impressively informative and accessibly organized text, Sustainable Health is an especially recommended addition to both community and academic library Alternative Medicine collections and supplemental studies lists.” — The Midwest Book Review
