Many people worry about getting cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, or heart disease because it "runs in the family." This attitude encourages a passive, out-of-my-hands approach. Instead, Dina Colman’s book, "Four Quadrant Living: Making Healthy Living Your New Way of Life," offers a new prescription for health—one that emphasizes positive steps readers can take to live a healthier, happier life.
After her sister was diagnosed with cancer, Dina was told that she had an 87% chance of getting the disease herself. This motivated Dina to leave her corporate job and go back to school, earning a master’s degree in holistic health education. There, she learned how to reduce her risk of getting cancer by changing the way she lived her life. Fifteen years later, Dina continues to beat the odds and her sister is cancer-free.
Dina says, "Every day we make choices that impact our health—the foods we eat, the products we use, the exercise we get, the stress we allow, the people we surround ourselves with, and the environment we live in." In her book, Dina shows readers how to take responsibility for their health and make healthy living part of their daily routine. She does so with warmth, humor, and evident caring.
"Four Quadrant Living" provides practical suggestions for nourishing the "four quadrants" of life (Mind, Body, Relationships, and Environment), including ways to reduce stress, eat well, live mindfully, exercise more, sleep better, foster supportive relationships, and create healthy environments.
Dick Bolles, author of "What Color is Your Parachute?" (over 10,000,000 copies sold), wrote the foreword. He says, "This is not just a book about how to improve your health. I wouldn’t trust it, if it was. This is a book about how to do Life. Those two—health and life—are inseparable. Anyone who writes about health, and doesn’t realize that, still has a lot to learn."
