Here is a list of books on the body, physically vitality and wellness that I personally use in my own life. Some of them have been recommended to me by experts in the field, others have been found through my own exploration and research.

It is now widely recognized that genes and DNA do not control our biology. Instead, they are controlled by signals from outside the cell, including energetic messages emanating from our thoughts.

The Brilliant Function of Pain
by Milton Ward
This book has been described as a fine book, recommended as a good introduction to holistic awareness. Milton Ward says that our greatest mistake is that we flee pain and try to “cure” it, failing to see that “pain is a guide, not an affliction ... It is an indication that our being is correcting itself.” or at least trying to. This book is not an endorsement of the suffering‐is‐good‐for‐you school; the object is genuine relief from pain and increased perfection of the total being.
