(Ad - Gifted) Body by James Davies - Book Review!

I don't know if it's my age, too much or not enough exercise but I have aches and pains. My back which always aches, some days I wake up with a sore neck after sleeping funny, I get the odd headache and random achy legs so when I had the chance to have a look at the book Body: Simple techniques and strategies to heal, reset and restore. I was very interested.

This is such a brilliant book. It isn't just for old people or those who suffer from chronic pain it is for anyone who wants to look after their body and learn a little more about it. It covers everything from head to foot.

I was fascinated by some of the advice in it. The way the book is written it is simple to understand and it is good to have something to reference when something isn't quite right with your body, those niggles we get which we know are not serious but annoy and frustrate us. It has lots of diagrams,  really helpful explanations and I have read plenty of things that I did not know about my own body. 

When I first picked it up and skimmed through it I saw the pages about legs and it was a good place to start since the backs of my legs have been sore for a couple of days. There were some exercises to try and they seem to be helping.

The advice in this book isn't patronising, it feels like I can look at this book for minor ailments like achy legs instead of going to the doctor who will just tell me to lose weight and exercise more, which I am doing anyway. This book should of course be used as a supplement to health care rather than replacing the advice of medical professionals if you know that something is seriously wrong with you.

I think this would make a great addition to anyone's bookshelf and with Christmas coming up it could be fantastic for someone who is hard to buy for. You can buy this book from Amazon in hardback, paperback, kindle edition or Audio book.

I was sent the book Body by James Davies free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
