Maria Borelius was 52 when she started feeling tired, old and dispirited. She suffered from severe back pains, premenopausal problems and a general feeling of decline and melancholia. That was the start of a four-year journey where she slowly began to unravel a new anti-inflammatory lifestyle which came to transform her life. The pain disappeared, the depression lifted and she began to feel her best for many years.
She began to travel around the world – to California, Toronto, Kerala, Lund, London, Addis Abeba, Copenhagen and Stockholm – to meet researchers, fitness professionals and gurus at this fascinating forefront of science and she soon began to put together a totally new picture of how low degree inflammation affects our health, lurking behind both ageing and our most common widespread afflictions – obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and poor mental health.
With help from the most recent emerging science on anti-inflammatory processes and simple, everyday tools, the author shows readers the way to a better and stronger version of ourselves.
Health Revolution is a page-turning tale of a woman’s journey on two levels - a personal journey towards a better life and a knowledge journey to discover new truths about lifestyle and deep health – the book is as enthralling as it is useful, with several aha-moments and simple cures, recipes and tips on how to start your new brighter life. This is Eat Pray Love in a health version.
The ground-breaking book Health Revolution was published in 2018 and was an immediate bestseller. Since then, the prize-winning science journalist Maria Borelius has continued her hunt for knowledge, and in her new book Bliss, she takes the next step on her anti-inflammatory journey.
After a setback with acute back pain, she is spurned to continue drill on to understand what an anti-inflammatory lifestyle can accomplish within us, and finds new methods at the forefront of science. Her travels take her to a silence retreat in Wales, to the Japanese island of Okinawa where the women live the longest in the world, and to a mythical pinot noir-producer in California.
She also meets with the professor who has found new answers surrounding inflamed senses, and a British psychiatrist who teaches us how to control our inner chimpanzee to enable us to follow through.
In Bliss, Maria Borelius shows us how we can create sustainable anti-inflammatory everyday routines that gives more harmony and balance. Apart from a number of new aha-experiences, this stand-alone book also offers us over fifty recipes, training tips, get-started-tips, and a smart weekly-schedule for more Bliss in your life.
