Small choices change everything. At age 16, Tom was diagnosed with a genetic condition called Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL). He was told that his condition was a rare mutation of VHL and that he would develop cancerous growths throughout his body. His doctor explained that he would develop cancer in his kidneys, adrenal glands, pancreas, brain and spine on top of losing his eyesight. That’s a lot for anyone to take in, especially a 16 year-old.
Eventually, Tom lost his eyesight in one eye, but he never lost the desire to live a long and healthy life. More than twenty years have passed since his diagnosis and Tom is still on the path of “growing old in better health”. He has read a multitude of medical articles and has found credible and practical ways to overcome his condition. Tom is a patient, not a doctor nor a nutrition expert. However, he is a researcher by trade and he loves to read. He shares his findings and insights with friends and is committed to helping others live healthier lives.
In his heavily researched and simple to read book – EAT MOVE SLEEP, Tom explains how his life depends on the interconnection of each lifestyle decision that he makes. He claims that every bite of food he eats and each move he takes help him sleep better and live a fulfilled life with his wife and two children. His pursuit of a long and healthy life never ceases. I recommend this remarkable, uplifting and advice giving book to anyone who seeks living a full life free of diseases that can make our lives miserable.
