How to make the changes that improve your health -- how to develop and choose the will to live: the will to health, featuring 24 fascinating case studies of chronically ill people who have made life-saving choices. Why do some people choose health, while others can't -- or don't? The author demonstrates that the will to health can be achieved by working through the natural inertia that rmally blocks progress. By clarifying a sense of will or purpose, any person can move beyond limits of psychology, belief, or environment to dramatically improve their lives, and health. Each chapter features: a personality -- Freud, Einstein's wife, Ernest Hemingway, Aleister Crowley, Norman Cousins, Leni Riefenstahl; a type of deadly inertia -- and how each personality succumbed to or chose to fight inertia; case studies of ordinary people suffering the same issues, and how they challenged assumptions and made new choices for health. This is insight and encouragement for the difficult decisions everyone faces when health is on the line.
