The book is arranged according to each of these important factors:
- Healthy heart
- Healthy brain
- Healthy lungs
- Healthy gut and immune system
- Healthy bones, muscle, and skin
- Healthy hormones
- Healthy weight
- Healthy relationships
- Healthy pregnancies
- Healthy childhood
Within each section are tips, quizzes, trivia, "Ask the Doctors" sidebars, plus check-up checklists, sections on how to determine which screenings and tests you need (and how to understand the results), as well as much more.
And while there are hundreds of fixes and tips to be found in the book, even doing just one is a huge start. In their research, The Doctors found that people who engage in one healthy behavior are more likely to engage in two, and so on. And since the body's systems are interconnected, making a positive change in one key are will have a positive ripple effect in the others.
