Dr. Matt Hahn is out with his first book – Staying Alive – The Signs That You Have to See a Doctor Right Now (and the Ways to Avoid Having to See One Again).
And the book release party is this Friday, January 27 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Ice House in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.
Staying Alive details what most effectively saves patients’ lives and keeps them well.
And it teaches patients how to spot life-threatening symptoms and recognize medical emergencies in time.
Dr. Hahn follows up with advice on taking advantage of available preventative care and changing your lifestyle to avoid emergencies in the future.
The book is divided into three sections.
Sixty-Two Medical Complaints That Should Never Be Ignored. As part of their medical education, doctors are taught that certain classic symptoms are the first sign of a serious medical condition. The intent of this section is to teach you those important signs and symptoms so that you know when you absolutely need to see a doctor.
The Miracles of Twenty-First-Century Medicine. A revolution has taken place in the medical sciences. In this important section, you will learn about the true miracle that is modern preventive medical care.
The Be Healthy Workbook. The true secret to health and wellness is healthy eating and regular exercise. The Be Healthy Workbook provides a tested simple systematic method to developing and maintaining healthy eating and exercise habits.
Each section includes real-life cases and illustrations that will bring this essential advice to life.
“Anyone interested in how to stay healthy and how to manage when illness or injury strikes must read this book,” said Andre Lijoi, a family physician and associate director of the York Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program. “Anyone interested in applying the miracles of modern preventive medicine must read this book. Anyone who needs a practical, step-by-step Be Healthy Workbook to help them achieve their health goals must read this book.”
