His research shows that by making one change a day for fifty days you can reduce your risk of develping heart disease by over 80 percent and your risk of cancer by at least 60 percent.

    The Seven Pillars of Health begins with a short introduction to explain how the book is divided into seven basic pillars for a healthy lifestyle and why it works. In Dr. Colbert’s book, each pillar is discussed for one week with a different focus for each day of the week. Each day he introduces the topic, gives tips, information, why you should follow his advice, points to ponder and action steps to take.
