Reading to Support Your Health in 2021


Our holistic approach to health at Taylor Pilates and Fitness recognizes that moving well and feeling well help you live well. Knowing more about overall health and how your body works is essential in your health journey. We recently discovered three books that were so compelling to overall wellness that we couldn’t wait to share them with you! We’d love to hear what you think after you read them. 

Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art

Did you know most of us have lost our ability to breathe properly? The repercussions to our health because of this are immense. James Nestor provides insight into why this happened and how to fix it in his bestselling book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art. Nestor traveled the world to explore the million-year-long history of humans and breathing as he wrote this book. If you or someone you love suffers from snoring, sleep apnea, allergies, or other ailments, pick up this book to discover the art and science of breathing correctly. 

“Who could imagine a ‘self-help book’ that reads like a page-turning novel?! I couldn’t put it down. I urge you to read and follow his teachings to improve that under-appreciated other pillar of your health, your breath.” Steven R Gundry MD, Four-Time NYT’s bestselling author of The Plant Paradox series, The Longevity Paradox, and The Energy Paradox.

The Body

It’s so easy to take our extraordinary body for granted. Often, we don’t pay attention to it until it fails. The Body by bestselling author Bill Bryson is a must-read owner’s manual of your amazing body. In the book, Bryson details how the body functions from head to toe, the incredible ways it can heal itself, and shares intriguing facts you’ll want to share with everyone you know. 

“Glorious. . ..You will marvel at the brilliance and the vast weirdness of your design.” The Washington Post

Toxic: Heal Your Body

Millions of people suffer from chronic illnesses that are caused by exposure to environmental toxins and infectious agents. Unfortunately, most don’t know what causes their ailments. Dr. Neil Nathan’s book Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and Chronic Environmental Illness gives hope to these suffering patients who often get dismissed by medical providers because the symptoms of these diseases are so varied. If you’re ready to “reboot” your body to break the cycle of sickness, grab this book to learn more.

“The book empowers those searching for answers to regain and optimize their health. I can’t remember that last time that I was as excited about a book as I am this one.” BetterHeatlhGuy, Amazon Review
