Learn how to be proactive about your health care and be part of the most important shift in thinking of our time.

Why do so many people suffer with nagging health issues? Why are the rates of serious disease climbing? How can we do better at preventing illness? Why are there conflicting views on what constitutes a “healthy” diet? These questions reflect a health care crisis that cannot be addressed without dramatic change. This cutting-edge book offers proven solutions from holistic nutrition.

You Can Be Well has a message of hope: You have the capacity to be well; you need not resign yourself to living in ill health. But, there are challenges. Economic and political systems in North America support a health care system that waits until you are sick to intervene, an approach called “sick-care. You don’t have to wait until you are sick to take charge of your health. This is only possible using the holistic approach outlined in these pages—one based on healthy diet, exercise, toxin-free living, and becoming emotionally balanced. Whether you currently enjoy good health or already suffer a health condition, you will discover your path to wellness here.

“Eloquently transports medicine from an archaic symptom based allopathic model to one that gives readers hope and empowerment. It is the best, clearest and most comprehensive book I have ever read on holistic health.” ~Edward D. H. Schroeder, RMT

Ruth Thompson has a wealth of experience in promoting health for individuals and communities. In 1992 she graduated with a Master of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario. During her social work career she advocated for food security and safe, supportive neighbourhoods. After struggling to find answers to her daughter’s mysterious illness, she attended the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and, in 2004, became a Holistic Nutritionist. Since then she has developed a successful clinical practice in Cambridge, Ontario. You Can Be Well is her first book.
