On Susan Swartz's Nightstand: The UltraMind Solution

Susan has been working proactively on her health with Dr. Mark Hyman, a renowned physician and educator, who practices Functional Medicine, a whole-systems approach to health. In addition to Dr. Hyman’s earlier book, UltraPrevention,  also a New York Times bestseller, Susan recommends The UltraMind™ Solution.

Dr. Hyman is part of a movement on the cutting edge of an entire shift in our scientific model of disease. This movement is called systems medicine or functional medicine. Explains Susan,

Dr. Hyman advocates a way of understanding the root causes of our illness and how our lifestyle and environment interact with our genes to create the imbalances or balances that are the real determinants of disease or health.

She is looking forward to Dr. Hyman's latest release The Blood Sugar Solution, available to the public in February 2012.
