Recommended Reading: The Pillars of Health 

The Pillars of Health, by plant-based activist John Pierre, was chosen by Dr. Neal Barnard, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, as a “favorite read.”1   Pierre addresses wellness in four parts, or “pillars”: nutrition, mind, motion, and compassion. The pillar of nutrition describes the problems associated with processed foods and added oils through simple yet thorough and engaging explanations. 

 

Nutritional and lifestyle recommendations are given for improved mental and physical health. Some of these recommendations include exercising both our mental and physical muscles, and examining our patterns, habits, self-talk, and damaging thought patterns. These are only a few of the pieces of mental and physical health advice offered, among many throughout the book.  

 

The last pillar, compassion, takes a look at wellness from a unique and important angle, discussing both the challenges and the benefits of living a compassionate life. Pierre says,

Throughout this book, I’ve focused on sharing nutritional, brain-building, and fitness enhancing modalities. The final pillar of health is perhaps the most important because it holds the key elements that support and reinforce the rest.” We can eat the most healthful diet and exercise consistently, but if we allow the negative energies of anger, jealousy, hatred, and greed to destroy our spirit, then we—and our planet—have little chance of thriving. This is why the pillar of compassion is so critical.

A PlantPure Testimonial: Warren Corporate Jumpstart Challenge

There is nothing like a little friendly competition to motivate people!  That is just what three Warren, Pennsylvania companies did to improve their employees’ health.  A few months ago, the Healing America tour came to Warren and we had the opportunity to meet with these companies.   Not one of the companies had management staff that were already plant-based; however, they were open to new ideas to improve their employees’ health and wellbeing.
