Encore: Carl Greer tells us how to “Change the Story of Your Health”
Change the story of your health
What’s the story of your health? When people ask, “How are you?” what do you tell them? “What if, despite aging, injuries, health conditions, and illnesses, you could not only return to the state of health you enjoyed previously but even improve on it?” This is the question posed in the Preface to Carl Greer’s new book, “Change the Story of Your Health.”
On this show, we will talk about the “story of your health”— how emotions and moods, your job or vocation, and your connection to God, Spirit, Source or a higher power—can affect the story of your health. And we will talk about how you can change that story so as you age you can continue to enjoy optimum health.
