The Health Alternatives

A Total Lifestyle Change

My book is inspired by my 17 years experience in clinical Nutrition practice on patients with chronic diseases. I advocate for prevention through lifestyle change and the old adage "Prevention is better than cure" has never been so relevant. Globally, we have seen an increase in Lifestyle diseases like Diabetes type 2,cancer, obesity, heart disease, stroke and COPD.

Synopsis

In Kenya, currently before the COVID-19 pandemic, the public health problem was related to Lifestyle diseases or noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) especially cancer, Diabetes type 2 ,heart related conditions, stroke hypertension as a result of obesity and lack of physical activity. The target reader is the well people as well as people or families with or affected by any of the chronic lifestyle related diseases.
For those who do not have any of the above chronic diseases, this book will give them wellness tips and easy strategies for making healthier eating choices and doing regular exercises in order to keep a healthy weight and avoid risk of lifestyle diseases. This book will also give simple tips and solutions with practically skills on how to prevent or manage lifestyle diseases for those who may have them. Using the locally available foods, the book will also have relevant healthy recipes and meal plans for different lifestyle diseases mentioned above.
When I was working in a major referral hospital for many years, I saw the plight of patients on critical care management as a result of one or more chronic illness. I used to feel very helpless when taking care of patients in the intensive care unit who were in a coma as a result of multiple organ failure due to lifestyle related disease. I would have to formulate a special feeding regimen either by tube or intravenously depending on the condition of the patient. Or when counselling a patient on dialysis due to kidney failure or cancer. That's where I developed the passion for educating and creating awareness to the public through media (both newspaper and Television) on how to prevent themselves from finding us in Intensive care unit due to lifestyle diseases which can be prevented through lifestyle change.
