Life Is Your Best Medicine

A Woman's Guide to Health, Healing, and Wholeness at Every Age

Publisher: National Geographic
Everything you do and every choice you make can have a positive and profound impact on your health and well-being. In fact, the science is irrefutable: No drug on the market today can come close to the power of a healthy lifestyle in preventing disease and improving the quality of our lives. Building on this evidence and on her own personal experiences as a medical doctor and holistic healer, Tieraona Low Dog guides women through nearly every facet of their lives, with practical advice and hands-on recommendations for improving their health based on traditional practices and cutting-edge science. From stress-reducing exercises and reenergizing with sleep to the power of forgiveness, nature, and social connectedness, Dr. Low Dog shows how nearly every aspect of your life forms the medicine you need to thrive.


"Because we’ve spent a lot of quality time in each other’s company, I thought I knew Tieraona Low Dog – until I read this book. Life Is Your Best Medicine is not only a comprehensive and highly practical guide for women seeking optimum health, it is also Tieraona’s own life story, sparkling with the wisdom she has drawn from it. I had no idea of all the adventures she had and the diverse experiences that made her the person she is today. The title of the book conveys the essence of her teaching: Your own experience is an invaluable and trustworthy source of information about how to maintain health as you go through life and deal with the common problems you encounter."  –Dr. Andrew Weil

"Throughout her book, she stresses living life in a positive way, asking readers to “every day find one thing to be grateful for.” Her holistic approach will appeal to anyone open to lower-tech ways to be healthy." –Booklist

“Not your typical diet book…shifts the focus from such short-term fixes as crash diets and prescription drugs to improving overall quality of life.” –Washington Post
