“You have the power to treat your own disease,” promotes author and licensed medical practitioner Ruth K. Anderson, M.D.. In her new book, GET MOVING! Live Better, Live Longer, she introduces a safe, simple, and medically based guide for better health.

According to Dr. Ruth Anderson, anyone with hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, chronic pain, or arthritis can drop their blood pressure, blood sugar levels and even control their pain with the right exercise program. Combining her medical expertise with her Masters in Exercise Physiology plus twenty-five years of experience in health and wellness, Dr. Ruth provides a scientifically proven guide to treat diseases through exercise and nutrition.

GET MOVING! Live Better, Live Longer presents guidelines developed by exercise physiologists over the past fifty years in an easy to read, easy to follow format. After reading the section of a specific disease, anyone can go to the gym and exercise safely to achieve the gains they desire.

“What I have to offer is a scientifically based program that will work. It will work if you make the commitment… one baby step at a time. No miracle results, no million dollars at the end of the rainbow; just a tried and true program that I’ve put into a form that you can incorporate into your life,” she says.
