Nobody wants to have a chronic long-term illness. Unfortunately, most of us will experience at least one of these conditions during our lives. The goal of this book is to help people with chronic illness explore healthy ways to live with physical or mental conditions. A healthy way to live with a chronic illness is to seek soundness of body and mind and work to overcome physical and emotional issues. The challenge is to learn how to function at your best regardless of the difficulties living with a chronic condition can present. The goal is to achieve the things you want to do and to get pleasure from life. That is what this book is all about. By showing readers how to become active self-managers through problem solving, goal setting, and action planning while also presenting the basics of healthy eating, exercise, relaxation, and emotional empowerment, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions offers readers a unique and exciting opportunity—the chance to take back one’s life and enjoy it to the fullest extent possible while living with chronic illness. Originally based on a five-year study, this completely revised 5th edition has grown to include the feedback of medical professionals and people with chronic conditions all over the world.
