Building Health by Design destroys the myth that disease just happens. Dr. Dale Peterson details the known mechanisms that lead to disease and premature aging and explains the steps that can be taken to address them. He goes far beyond the basic recommendations of eat well and exercise (although a common-sense approach to these fundamental factors is given). Set in the context of his own quest for optimum wellness he addresses the four major biochemical causes of disease and premature aging: Free Radical Damage, Inflammation, Loss of Repair Ability, and Mitochondrial decline. He continues by revealing the dangers of electromagnetic chaos in the environment, risks that have be systematically covered up by industry and governmental agencies. He alerts the reader to the need to reset corrupted files in the body's central computer, and he addresses the importance of renewing the mind and becoming a spiritual warrior. He systematically reveals the factors we control that determine our state of health. Finally, he provides a comprehensive plan for obtaining optimum health. Whether you are facing a health challenger or are hoping to avoid the many health challenges that are commonplace in modern society, you will find answers in Building Health by Design!

About the Author:

Dr. Dale Peterson is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, College of Medicine. He completed a residency in Family Medicine at the University of Oklahoma. He also earned a Masters Degree in Biblical Studies from Pacific College of Graduate Studies.

Dr. Peterson practiced briefly in northern Wisconsin prior to serving as the assistant director of the Eau Claire Family Medicine residency program. In 1978 he moved to Edmond, Oklahoma, where he had a full-time family practice for over twenty years. He is a past Chief of Staff of the Edmond Hospital and a past president of the Oklahoma Academy of Family Physicians. He was active in teaching for many years as a Clinical Professor of Family Medicine through the Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center.

Dr. Peterson left his full-time family practice on March 1, 1999 to be able to consult with individuals who are seeking ways to restore and maintain their health through improved nutrition and other lifestyle changes. He founded the Wellness Clubs of America to give people access to credible information on supporting and maintaining their health. He created the Center to Expose Iatrogenic Medicine to alert physicians and patients alike of the dangers of medications and common medical procedures.

Dr. Peterson has an intense interest in the design of the human body and how, given proper nutrition and support, the body is able to halt the progression of disease and restore health. His monthly wellness letter, Health By Design, and his website, drdalepeterson.com, provide helpful information to individuals interested in preventing and conquering health challenges.

Dr. Peterson speaks regularly on subjects related to health and nutrition. He hosted a weekly radio program, Your Health Matters, on KTOK in Oklahoma City for five years. Since 2001, he has addressed questions from across the nation on the Wellness Clubs of America weekly teleconference. He has made numerous television appearances on the Trinity Broadcasting Network and he is currently a regular guest on radio programs across the country.

Review:

In these days, health care has become a national obsession . . . indeed, a growing national bureaucracy. It whirls in a vortex of politics, money and the competitive selling of remedies for disease and even minor discomfort. Instead of the human touch, illness, disease and health have come to be defined by impersonal committees, studies and statistics. Dr. Dale Peterson s life work provides a stark contrast to this alarming situation. In our many years of association, numerous discussions on the relationship between Bible-based spirituality and health stand out as pleasant and insightful interludes. I have come to deeply respect and admire his honesty, knowledge and moral courage. In his early years, Dale s medical education prepared him for what turned out to be a long, successful and influential practice as a family physician. But at a crucial point in his life, he was forced to the conclusion that healing is much more than emergency repair and the relief of distress. He became more and more convinced that the human body, as a creation of God, was designed from the beginning with its own built-in healing systems. As a spiritual man on a quest into alternative disciplines, he discovered a new career as a wellness physician. He learned how to stimulate the body s own healing power. His book traces the history of these revelations. It is as much a recounting of his personal adventure, as it is a physician s revealing look inside the human body. Follow his journey, and you will see for yourself that there is much more to health care than is commonly recognized. --Gary Stearman Prophecy in the News
