The right kind of nutrition, physical activity, sleep and emotional wellness are key to having a strong immunity. We must have the discipline to do this in the right way. Stress and fear are wasted emotions and it should be a personal decision to overcome it. Instead of wallowing in it, we must choose to overcome stress. Our book comprises of powerful lifestyle changes, hints, recipes, tips by the world's most renowned doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, lifestyle experts and lot more.”
