For nearly 20 years, Jorge Cruise has been changing people’s lives through diet and fitness plans of captivating simplicity: an 8-minute daily workout, a 12-second resistance training sequence, a super-easy rule (“The 100”) for measuring sugar intake. In this book, he puts a new spin on transformation: Dr. Mike Dow is a best-selling author, psychotherapist, and relationship expert. So why is he writing a book about stroke?
Well, what you probably don’t know about Dr. Mike is that his younger brother, David, is a stroke survivor. What’s more, David’s stroke happened when he was only 10 years old. This means most of Dr. Mike’s teenage years were spent witnessing what his family was dealing with trying to find the best treatments for David. He struggled to know what to do to help his brother. He watched helplessly as his brother wrestled with depression, trying to find the motivation to recover on top of the challenges of adolescence. He mourned the loss of what could have been—and he was angry.
How his family would have loved to sit down with top experts in stroke treatment to find out what they should be doing and have their questions answered. Now Dr. Mike has the ability to do just that, and he’s doing it so that others in his family’s position don’t have the same struggle.
Armed with questions from stroke survivors and their loved ones, Dr. Mike talks with the best clinicians to get over 100 answers you need to know to maximize your recovery.
