9780316246101: Go Wild: Eat Fat, Run Free, Be Social, and Follow Evolution's Other Rules for Total Health and Well-being

The scientific evidence behind why maintaining a lifestyle more like that of our ancestors will restore our health and well-being.

In GO WILD, Harvard Medical School Professor John Ratey, MD, and journalist Richard Manning reveal that although civilization has rapidly evolved, our bodies have not kept pace. This mismatch affects every area of our lives, from our general physical health to our emotional wellbeing. Investigating the power of living according to our genes in the areas of diet, exercise, sleep, nature, mindfulness and more, GO WILD examines how tapping into our core DNA combats modern disease and psychological afflictions, from Autism and Depression to Diabetes and Heart Disease. By focusing on the ways of the past, it is possible to secure a healthier and happier future, and GO WILD will show you how.

Review:

"The mission accomplished by this wonderfully empowering book is nothing short of revolutionary."―from the foreword by David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain

"A brilliantly creative synthesis of research and theory offering up a practical, playful, yet profound answer to that most basic question: how to live."―Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Shine: Using Brain Science to Bring Out the Best in Your People



"A clear, sustained, fast-paced, utterly persuasive argument that much of our current distress and disease is the product of how the activities of regimented modern life estrange us from our biological needs, literally making us ill. Filled with fascinating details, and the palpable joy of the authors who have found a way to break free from these restrictions, it's also inspiring and will influence many to change the way they live for the better."―Norman Doidge, MD, author of The Brain That Changes Itself

"An exciting read! A fascinating investigation into the power of evolutionary forces in our lives. Illuminating, penetrating, and immensely practical."―Jim Loehr, cofounder of Human Performance Institute and coauthor of The Power of Full Engagement

"Essential reading for anyone interested in unleashing the true power of human nature."

Tyler Graham, author of The Happiness Diet

The scientific evidence behind why we should maintain a lifestyle more like that of our ancestors to restore our health and well-being.
