Thank you to Dr. John Ratey for talking with me about his new book Go Wild: Free Your Body and Mind from the Afflictions of Civilization. Dr. Ratey is a nationally acclaimed author and clinical associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Among his eight books is the groundbreaking Spark: The Revolutionary Science of Exercise and the Brain.
Here’s a description of “Go Wild” from Dr. Ratey’s website:
The scientific evidence behind why maintaining a lifestyle more like that of our ancestors will restore our health and well-being. Civilization has rapidly evolved, our bodies have not kept pace. This mismatch affects every area of our lives, from our general physical health to our emotional wellbeing. GO WILD examines how tapping into our core DNA combats modern disease and psychological afflictions, from Autism and Depression to Diabetes and Heart Disease. By focusing on the ways of the past, it is possible to secure a healthier and happier future, and GO WILD will show you how.
