Publishers Description Super Health is a complete manual for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual renewal. K.C. Craichy, founder and CEO of Living Fuel, shares simple, practical and step-by-step information for unleashing the energy, health and fitness that your body and spirit have been waiting for. Super Health is the culmination of many years of research and trial and error. K.C. wrote the book because he cares deeply about health and wellness and because he believes we have a responsibility as Christians to be living examples of the abundant life. We can't live abundantly if it is a challenge to drag ourselves out of bed in the morning, if we don't have the energy to play with our children and if the stresses of life are preventing us from reaching our highest God-given potential. K.C. believes we must proactively take our lives and our health into our own hands. Modifying our lifestyles and food choices doesn't just affect us alone. It impacts the health of our families, our communities and ultimately the planet. K.C. Craichy developed this safe, simple and complete lifestyle program through years of research and working with some of the top minds in nutrition and medicine. The Seven Golden Keys to Unlock Lifelong Vitality is a program that enhances performance, promotes energy, nurtures overall health and can be sustained over a lifetime. The Seven Golden Keys includes the groundbreaking nutritional approach, The Four Corners of Optimal Nutrition.

Super Health is Super! Feb 11, 2009
Super Health 7 Golden Keys to Unlock Lifelong Vitality is the best book about improving health I've ever read, and I've ready many of them. KC Craichy presents the path to lifelong health in a way that's clear and easy to understand. I've taught martial arts fitness for more than 40 years and know how important these 7 Golden Keys are to unlocking personal vitality for a lifetime. The truths of these keys are more than just about living a long life. They are also about greatly improving the long life you will live. I am a firm believer in the principles of this book and highly recommend it to everyone who cares about being healthy for the rest of their life.
This book is the answer to total health Mar 22, 2006
I received the Super Health: Seven golden Keys to Lifelong Vitality and it has changed my health and life. After reading many books on diet and health, this is the first complete compilation of information bound together with a livable system to guide you . Unlike one of the other reviewers, I want to know all the information on what affects my health in order to make informed decisions on the options I have on food, exercise and environment. I see this book as a guide to optimizing my lifestyle for vibrant health and energy not as rigid restictions that must be met at all times.
I have adopted most of the book's recommendations in my life over the last 3 months and I have lost 30 pounds, overcome sleep apnea, developed a more intimate relationship with God and recieve much greater joy and satisfaction from my life.
I recommend this book to everyone who believes they can achieve more from life than they are right now.
Has everything except perspective Feb 28, 2006
This book has everything except perspective. Its information on diet, exercise, nutritional supplements, and stress reduction is fantastic. Follow the advice here, and you may live to be 100. The problem is, you won't want to. By the time you give up most of your salt, chocolate, soft drinks, caffeine, and starch, you'll want to die. So, the first thing you need to know is that this book is overrunning with scare tactics.
My gosh, according to the author, you not only cannot drink tap water, you cannot drink bottled water--unless it actually comes in a glass bottle (otherwise you might get some contamination from the plastic). That is the level of extremism found throughout this book. You've heard lately on TV and radio the value of eating fish because it provides needed cholesterol inhibitors, but Craichy says that except for sardines we should eat no fish because our streams and oceans are polluted (and he is absolutely rabid about staying about from all shellfish, like lobster and shrimp and crab). Don't drink concentrated orange juice because it has as much sugar as Coca-Cola. Stay away from milk because pasteurization deletes all the B vitamins in it, and it causes allergies in children. Don't eat pork because one in six Americans has trichinosis from worms found in "the other white meat." On and on it rants. (Fortunately, he says we can eat eggs--but without salt!)
Where is all this leading? In the back of the book there are order forms so that you can send cash to the author and he will mail you his pills, "meal replacement" powders, and gel caps so that you can live on these food substitutes and be healthier. Ugh! Shoot me now.
Don't get me wrong, I feel the author is trying to provide valuable information. Also, I appreciated the parts of this book that offer very valid procedures for improving sleep, getting involved in exercise training, finding time for relaxation, and breaking bad health habits (such as smoking). I also appreciated the references to Scripture that appeared occasionally throughout the text. However, ultimately, the book serves as a commercial for the author's business in nutritional products. So, read the chapters selectively and try not to panic because you enjoy a doughnut once or twice a week. -- Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, Christian Book Previews.com
Wonderful Book for College Students Oct 24, 2005
As a college professor and parent of a college student, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I mailed a copy to my daughter, who just started classes at the University of Iowa, and she absolutely loved it, as well. Unfortunately, these days teenagers aren't well-educated when it comes to feeding their bodies properly, and many gain the dreaded "freshman 15" when they move out on their own, primarly because they make poor food choices (pizza, fast food, soda and other junk). In plain, easy-to-understand terms, this book does a good job at teaching the fundamentals of good nutrition, and I highly recommend it as a "care package item" for parents to send to their college kids, to help them understand the importance of eating properly. Other books for your college kids I highly recommend are:
*"How to Ace Your Way Through College and Still Have a Life" (Good, smart advice for college students)
*"Getting Things Done" (Solid advice for procrastinating students)
*"Working with Words": A good reference guide
Super advice for strong, missionary Christians . . . Oct 24, 2005
Craichy's book is an elegant and practical synthesis of the latest conventional wisdom on diet and exercise. Western Christians have long believed in the power of prayer, meditation, and rational thought. And when things go wrong, there must be a key, or several keys, to unlocking our ultimate potential in this life. The basic keys have always been good, clean family living and a healthy skepticism for drugs and psychotherapy. As the world becomes more complex and, more often than not, as unfathomable as the great beyond, its dangers must be approached with increasing caution. . . . Be advised, however, that if you are not the sort of person to read the Bible and take it literally, you probably won't be helped by this book. Another warning: Knick guard Allan Houston's blurb on the back of the book about staying in the game must now be evaluated in the wake of his recent decision to retire. It is a lesson, though: no matter how much you pray and practice, you cannot fix problems that don't heal. For a practical illustration of this problem--and this is something you can do at home--conduct the following experiment:
1. Find a man in your life who's lost his hair. (If you fit that description, use yourself.) 2. Ask that man to pray to God that his hair grows back. Ask friends to pray also. 3. Chart the results over several months. It's easiest to do this if you have a digital camera. To ensure unbiased results, always photograph the head under the same conditions. 4. Conduct a poll. To ensure unbiased evaluations, post the photographs to the Internet and ask people to complete an online poll. A multiple-choice or yes/no format works best, with software in place to ensure only one vote per IP address.
It's quite likely, alas, that prayer will not result in significant regrowth of hair lost to male-pattern baldness. But don't despair: hair isn't everything. And by all means do not resort to wearing a hairpiece: toupees only work for actors, and only because actors have professional make-up consultants to help them make sure it always looks real. (Read Russell David Harper's "Bald" to see just how embarrassing a hairpiece can really be.)
