Dr. Vickery was recently featured in The Biltmore Beacon. Check out an excerpt from the article here.

Gus Vickery, M.D., recently announced the publication of his new book entitled ‘Authentic Health.’ He describes it as a guide to losing weight, feeling better, mastering stress, sleeping well every night, and enjoying a sense of purpose.

The book is available nationally through Amazon.com, but Vickery says he wrote it primarily to serve the local community. He saw a need to give his patients a tool to answer their questions; a book that was simple, but provided answers.  “Outside of the medical community, most people don’t want to read the detailed scientific research, and books that promote quick solutions and fad diets don’t work.”

The first chapters of the book offer practical steps for achieving genuine health along with building the mindset to make it happen. The second half goes into more detail on nutrition, meditation, movement and sleep. 

“I believe, and research has shown, that the solution to our health problems lies in our habits,” he says. “No one consciously chooses to be sick; unconscious behaviors are shaped early in life.” The key to success, he says, is mindfulness – changing one’s thinking to alter self-destructive habits and create new ones in their place.
