It's time to take back your health! Adele Puhn, who revolutionized weight loss with The 5 Day Miracle Diet, now brings her winning approach to overall health and nutrition. Based on Puhn's twenty years of experience as a clinical nutrition specialist, The 5 Vital Secrets for a Healthy Life offers a time-tested healing program of complementary therapies that will help you attain and maintain a strong, healthy body and a sharp, confident mind.

Adele Puhn begins by stressing the importance of the health links that can connect your symptoms with underlying conditions--some of them obvious, some of them startlingly subtle. She guides you, step-by-step, to becoming your own health detective--as you discover the solution to the "mystery" your body is trying to tell you. Perhaps wax build-up in your ears signals a circulatory problem . . . Perhaps your insomnia is a result of too little calcium--even though you drink a lot of milk! Puhn shows you how to find the real clues your body is telling you to help you on your way to good health. And, to ensure that health, she also includes her own unique mix of herbal remedies, food regimes, nutritional supplements, and inspiring advice. Her preventative, practical program is essential for understanding the 5 vital secrets to optimal health. Inside you'll be:

¸  DISCOVERING empowerment to reclaim your vigor, confidence, and long-term good health
¸  LEARNING how to read your body--and become your own top-notch health detective
¸  KNOWING the "mastermind" behind many of your symptoms--one that must be repaired and restored before you can begin to feel well
¸  UNDERSTANDING your body's partner-in-crime--the organ that, when imbalanced, also may create your symptoms
¸  PREVENTING and easing such chronic conditions as allergies and heart trouble, chronic fatigue syndrome and bronchitis--using Puhn's Rescue Regimes to help get rid of them forever

To help you visualize how apparently unconnected conditions can wreak havoc on your health, Puhn has created a remarkable device: the Body Bank. When you make DEPOSITS--in the form of supplements, specific foods, or a good night's sleep--your account grows, building a wealth of health. When you make WITHDRAWALS--some as obvious as eating too much fatty foods and some you might not even by aware of doing!--you're depleting your system and beginning to "run in the red." But even if you find yourself with a full-fledged BANKRUPTCY condition, don't despair. Puhn gives you simple, easy-to-implement solutions to bolster your entire system.

Good health is yours to enjoy. You can feel better--starting right now. The 5 Vital Secrets for a Healthy Life are ready to be revealed. And remember, with that very first step you are doing something wonderful for yourself: choosing health. Prevention has never been so easy--or enjoyable!
