How To Be Healthy | Author: Katherine D. Van Schaik

How to Be Healthy: An Ancient Guide to Wellness - is ancient wisdom for modern readers. The second-century Greek physician Galen ? the most famous doctor in antiquity after Hippocrates ? is a central figure in Western medicine. A talented doctor, surgeon, writer, philosopher, teacher, pharmacologist, and inventor, Galen attended the court of Marcus Aurelius. In these selections from his writings, presented in fresh translations, Galen discusses the art of medicine, exercise and diet, the mind-body connection, the difficulty of applying general medical principles to individuals, and much more.

In How to Be Healthy, practicing physician and classical historian Katherine Van Schaik presents a collection of Galen?s enduring insights about how we can take care of our bodies and minds, prevent disease, and reach a healthy old age.
