At Health Directions, we understand that the world of health insurance is challenging. Costs are high, and everyone is looking for a way to save on their plans. As your health insurance brokers, we are here to help you through this process. More importantly, we want to be your ‘healthy health insurance brokers’. We practice health and fitness in our personal lives, and have found that living a healthy lifestyle is one way to try to lower health insurance costs. We do our best to stay informed about health trends and came across a few books in our personal readings that we would like to share with you. Now that we’re heading into summer, we’re looking forward to doing some relaxing and reading with these books.
The first book we recommend is The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven R. Gundry. Dr. Gundry is an experienced surgeon and renowned cardiologist with a distinguished career. In this book, Dr. Gundry argues that the criminal of our diets is not gluten, but lectin. Lectin is also a plant-based protein that is found in grains such as wheat, but it is also found in many gluten-free foods typically considered healthy. We think The Plant Paradox is a great read because it is highly informative, and offers solutions to the presented problem. Both of us are flying through this book and are already implementing some of Dr. Gundry’s suggestions, and we the book has similar effects on you. You can find a further description of the book here, and read a short sampler here.
The next book we suggest is Head Strong by Dave Asprey. Dave Asprey is best known for his Bulletproof model he developed to improve human performance and nutrition. If you’re interested in hearing more about the Bulletproof diet, just ask Mark! He’s been following Dave Asprey for years. You can also find out more on the Bulletproof website. Based on his own research, Dave Asprey wrote Head Strong to suggest ways we can maximize our energy in order to use our brain to its full potential. It also shows you how making improvements in your life can be simple and still be effective. To find out more about Dave Asprey and Head Strong, click here to visit the book’s website.
You might be thinking that making changes towards a healthy lifestyle is challenging, maybe too challenging. We’ve seen that the benefits that come from leading a healthy lifestyle far outweigh the efforts of change, and we’re here to help! We also have alternative options to traditional health insurance plans that we can share with you to help you in this process. Give us a call, send us an email, or stop in if you would like to learn more about these options, get some questions answered, or even discuss these books. Let’s have a great summer!
