After over 20 years of bouncing around from prison to prison in the state of California, the author has experienced a number of unhealthy circumstances: having brown, dirty, rusty water coming out of his sink; been fed food that clearly says on the box "NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION"; He was denied surgery for two years for a torn rotator cuff, which allowed his shoulder to dislocate fourteen times during those two years; once got a flu shot that made him sick for three months; he's been in a prison where guards and visitors are warned via posted signs to NOT drink the water because of high arsenic levels, yet it's the only water for prisoners to drink; he's been to prisons where inmates were actually dying from Valley Fever due to the contaminated land the prisons were built upon; and this doesn't even begin to get into the lack of nutrition, exercise, and the mental wear and tear he has gone through.
In an effort to survive, literally, the author finally decided he'd have to take health into his own hands, at least as much as possible, given his circumstances. So, though he is no doctor, he began to collect information, read and educate himself, so he'd at least have a basic understanding and increase the odds at remaining healthy in such an unhealthy environment. The author couldn't find one complete source -- one go-to source. He just began to gather all he could from doctors, gurus, therapists, experts and even prisoners, put it together and created his own go-to source that he could use as a reference when needed -- a guide for health success. And as a prisoner-author who specializes in self-help books and reports for prisoners, it was the natural next step that he shares all he has learned and gathered in the form of a one-stop book, to regain some power and control over our own health, both mentally and physically. Because, in prison, if YOU don't take care of YOU, who else will?
