    Covers many chronic health conditions, but not in any great depth. A good book to gain an overview of the conditions mentioned on the cover.

    Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions is an amazing book compiled with everything one needs to know about the basic chronic conditions that we all suffer from time to time. I was surprised at the depth of material presented in this book. It is a wealth of information that I plan to keep handy with me. My grandmother was a hospice-at-home patient. This book, had the information I needed in order to know how to properly move my bedridden grandmother without hurting her or myself.

I was surprised at the depth of material presented in this book. It is a wealth of information that I plan to keep handy with me. My grandmother was a hospice-at-home patient. This book, had the information I needed in order to know how to properly move my bedridden grandmother without hurting her or myself. In fact, the nurses that stopped in to check on Nana reinforced that knowledge from the book. I was beyond happy! There is much more I can go on about but I recommend this to parents, college students, and professionals everywhere. The elderly definitely need to read this book as well. So much can be learned and prevented or treated early on, if I had read this book. Overall, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions is a must have for every library both in home and everywhere. I received this copy from the publisher. This is my voluntary review.

Distraction techniques and relaxation methods, reproduceable goal planning forms included for the major action planning tool in the self-management program, visual meal planning a further help to our well-known Canada Food Guide. The value of prayer and gratitude in living well are not overlooked. Exercises are described and diagrams provided for flexibility, strength, endurance, and balance. Communication to enable increased understanding of chronic conditions with friends and family, managing medicines, and future planning, are all valuable lessons included in the manual, for anyone living with chronic conditions or caregiving someone who is.

    I received this book free while taking a class at my local community library. The class atmosphere allowed for many group discussions to accompany the topics of the day and each week we were to make an action plan as "homework". As a group we were encouraged to get and give both support and feedback to each other. However the 6 week course was cut short due to the "social distancing" requirement of the COVID19 pandemic.

It will remain as a reference book in my home library.

The book and the class are both very useful tools for those dealing with chronic conditions or caring for those who are.

    An outstanding informational guide for those of us who are seriously considering SELF-MANAGEMENT of our various illnesses. This book includes, Reading labels, Food Charts, Meal Planning, etc., that is also used in the Stanford University's Chronic Diseases Self Management Module. I use this in the Diabetes Classes that I co-facilitate. An outstanding informational guide for those of us who are seriously considering SELF-MANAGEMENT of our various illnesses.

    This is a great book for anyone who is living with a chronic condition, such as asthma diabetes, chronic pain, ect. The Canadian version looks more specifically at things that include our health care system. It is most definitely worth the read, especially combined with Living a Healthy Live with Chronic Pain, for individuals who deal with pain, as both books do cover different topics.

    This book is pretty basic stuff. I would recommend it to someone who is just starting out taking care of themselves - like if you have a chronic health problem and you have no idea how to eat healthy, exercise, communicate your needs to other people in a way that isn't alienating...I had to read it for a class, but I still found some things in it that I can use in my personal life.

    i got this book by mistake. i was reserving some anti-inflammatory cookbooks from the library, and thought this was about diet too, but it wasn't. i didn't fully read it, but skimmed it. it's very simplistic, and is trying to cover too many conditions. people can find a lot more info just by a good search. i got this book by mistake. i was reserving some anti-inflammatory cookbooks from the library, and thought this was about diet too, but it wasn't. i didn't fully read it, but skimmed it. it's very simplistic, and is trying to cover too many conditions. people can find a lot more info just by a good search.

    "All people have days when they don't feel like doing anything" Love that statement from this book. What I've learned is: be a good manager for myself, enjoy life, eat healthy food, do regular exercise, and keep positive.

    Ok, I didn't read it *all*, the relevant portions for my life. However, it got me thinking, and I've since chanced some of my habits. Ok, I didn't read it *all*, the relevant portions for my life. However, it got me thinking, and I've since chanced some of my habits.
