Author Gus Vickery, MD is Today’s Honoree

Chronic pain, fatigue, weight gain, brain fog and emotional discomfort plague millions of Americans, resulting in lost work, reduced productivity and diminished quality of life. Often, the treatments suggested by physicians are aimed at temporarily alleviating symptoms rather than addressing the true underlying problems. Sound familiar?

Dr. Gus Vickery offers a powerful manifesto for claiming the good health that’s within each of us in his new book, Authentic Health: The Definitive Guide to Losing Weight, Feeling Better, Mastering Stress, Sleeping Well Every Night & Enjoying a Sense of Purpose.

Between the covers of Authentic Health lies a comprehensive program that addresses the root causes of chronic conditions that steal our health, such as obesity, diabetes, depression and anxiety, insomnia, and many others, while explaining how proper nutrition, physical activity, managing stress, sleeping well and cultivating a sense of purpose can help us reclaim the good health we were intended to enjoy.

Among the tools offered in Authentic Health are tips for:

•    Conditioning your brain to think in a way that supports your best health;
•    Building the willpower to make good health decisions;
•    Overcoming dysfunctional eating and promoting lifelong health; and
•    Building a healthy movement routine, mastering stress, and sleeping great

Chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes and obesity are rising at disturbing rates. Meanwhile, healthcare costs are sky-rocketing, and insurance companies are increasingly cutting their coverage of available treatments and medications. Authentic Health equips individuals with the resources to reverse — and prevent altogether — chronic health conditions while showing them how simple achieving good health can be.

He specializes in helping people with a wide array of chronic health conditions to take the actions necessary to reverse these conditions and feel their best. By providing comprehensive health assessments based on extensive biometric data and intensive personal engagement, Dr. Vickery helps his patients create detailed lifestyle and medicinal health optimization plans built around their unique needs. Dr. Vickery is also a speaker and the founder and directing physician of Vickery Family Medicine in Asheville, North Carolina. He lives in Asheville with his wife and their three children.
