Just Be Well: A Book for Seekers of Vibrant Health
Thomas A. Sult, MD
Millions of Americans suffer from chronic diseases—cancer, diabetes, depression, obesity, mental illness, and many more—and traditional medicine is failing to bring them back to health. Doctors write prescriptions to combat symptoms but, all too often, don’t even try to solve the root cause of the condition.
In Just Be Well, Dr. Tom Sult points the way toward a new path. He and a growing number of physicians practice functional medicine, a discipline that treats people, not diseases. Functional medicine doctors ask “Why do you have this illness?”—not “How can we stem the tide of symptoms?” They see that each of us is a marvelously interconnected system, and that when we understand what lies at the heart of a condition, we can work our way back to true wellness through changes in our lifestyle, attitude, and relationship with the world around us.
Chapter by chapter, Dr. Sult takes you through the eight key physiological processes of the functional medicine matrix, weaving together accessible information, real-life patient stories, and actionable advice you can use to begin your own journey back to wellness.
Whether you’re suffering from a debilitating condition or just don’t feel the vibrant health you used to, Dr. Sult’s advice will benefit you. The stories he has to share aren’t about miracle cures or instant results; they’re about how people just like you have joined the functional medicine movement and discovered the power to just be well.
