RECOMMENDED RESOURCES—UPDATED 2017
After the bibliography from my book, How Healthy Is Your Doctor? was completed and published (in 2013), then updated and posted on my website (in 2014), I’ve discovered several more books, a few movies, and some websites I can enthusiastically recommend to anyone interested in creating their own best health. I hope some of them are helpful to you on your own health journey.
