The Rockstar Remedy – Book Review

When it comes to your health, do you live like a rock star?

I know what you’re thinking. Chances are, if you’re reading this blog, you are not given to the excesses that you associate with the lifestyles of many celebrity headliners. But in the opening of The Rockstar Remedy – A Rock & Roll Doctor’s Prescription For Living A Long, Healthy Life by Dr. Gabrielle Francis, a quote by Michael Franti caught my eye:

You may be surprised to learn that the rock & roll lifestyle is not that much different than that of a very intense business traveler: living out of airports, taxis, and hotels; dashing from appointment to appointment; working very late; getting up too early; answering emails; taking phone calls; and eating on the run. Sound familiar?

Aside from the two hours onstage performing, the stresses of life on the road may be very similar to those you find in your own life.

So, if you’re interested in improving your health, The Rockstar Remedy may actually be the perfect place for you to start! Whatever your current lifestyle is and no matter what your current health challenges are, The Rockstar Remedy contains ideas to help you make positive changes.

The Rockstar Remedy, as you might gather, is an unusual health book. Dr. Gabrielle Francis makes her living as a doctor to the stars, and this book is filled with quotes and testimonials from celebrity after celebrity on food, health and rock and roll. If you find musicians interesting, you’ll enjoy this book for that reason alone!

But for those of you who are interested in bona fide information on improving your health, The Rockstar Remedy provides ideas for holistically assessing all aspects of your life (mind, body, soul as well as your social system and physical environment) and gives you solid steps to transform your life, no matter where you are starting from!

The Rockstar Remedy is an easy-to-read book that will appeal to those interested in making positive but gradual changes in their lifestyle and to those who enjoy being entertained in the process.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
