HOW TO BE WELL by Frank Lipman

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish in April 2018 as a 4 color illustrated book.

HOW TO BE WELL is a simple answer to a complicated problem. The world at large is not geared toward our best health - left to our own devices, most of us would be awash in coffee, bagels, sugar and stress. Our environment is often toxic.

Many people are on multiple medications that are wrecking everything in their health that they set out to fix. And is anybody getting as much sleep as they need? We have so much information available to us, from possibly brilliant to downright dangerous, that it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning without being confused.

Dr. Lipman’s bestseller THE NEW HEALTH RULES sought to clear up some of this confusion. But what he realized was the next frontier was “how” to do it...

HOW TO BE WELL is the book equivalent of the hip, friendly, warm and wonderful health coaches that populate Frank’s office - who take each patient by the hand, figure out what they need to succeed, how that individual can “be well”, and show them exactly what to do to get there. The patient does what works for them - slow or fast, cherry picking what appeals - it’s the “no program program”

Frank Lipman has long been known as New York’s “celebrity to the stars”. He was integrative before it was a thing, and embraced functional medicine when people still thought Lean Cuisines were a good way to lose weight (if you didn’t get the memo, they’re not…). His direct manner and wry humor have made him a go-to doc for the media, and his results have made him a go-to doc for a lot of very influential people.
