After two decades of running a successful pharmacy practice and then losing it all, Dr. Phil Carson entered a period of deep personal struggle. Each night he would walk along a country road hoping to find a few minutes of peace, but he ultimately discovered something far more valuable.

Dr. Phil discovered that true health and happiness comes from finding balance in seven key areas, so he developed a simple plan anyone can use. In his new book, How to Live Until You Die, he makes it simpler than ever to unlock a healthier, happier, and more whole you, so today can mark a new beginning for your total health!
