The Art of Health: Your Health Warrior Awakens: A 12-Week Program to Achieve Optimal Health, Based on the Principles of Sun Tzu
The Art of Health is a 12 week program designed to help readers achieve optimal health. Written by Dr. Kevin Chan, a board certified physician, based in Phoenix, Arizona, Dr. Chan practices a progressive form of medicine he terms, “Strategic Integrative Medicine.” The Art of Health explains this style of medicine as the best practices of Integrative, Functional, and Mind-Body Medicine, in the framework of Sun Tzu’s strategic system with the scientific application of ancient metaphysical principles.
Sun Tzu was a gifted Chinese general and philosopher who, scholars believe, wrote the book The Art of War around 2,500 years ago. It has been, perhaps, the most influential book on strategy in the world - from its inception to present day. It has been studied by world leaders in all walks of life. In the United States its competitive strategy has influenced leaders in the military, politics, business, sports, and more.
The Art of Health not only interprets Sun Tzu’s time honored strategies for handling preventive health and illness in simple to follow weekly modules, but offers wellness coaching actions at the end of every module.
In this age of rampant chronic illness, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and others, it is Dr. Chan’s hope to teach people to think strategically about their health.
The New England Patriots Head Coach, Bill Belichick, uses Sun Tzu in his coaching strategies. “As Sun Tzu said, ‘Every battle is won before it’s fought.’ We don’t have many signs around here, but that’s one of the ones we have up in our locker room and meeting rooms. That' s one of the few we have. I definitely believe in it.”
