The World Health Organization projects the majority of the world's heart attack patients will be Asian Indian within a few years. South Asians, who are predominantly Indians and Pakistanis, make up one-third of the world's population and have the highest prevalence of heart disease and diabetes. Dr. Ronesh Sinha, an internal medicine specialist in Silicon Valley, CA, recipient of the 2013 Silicon Valley Business Journal Health Care hero award, and TEDx speaker, specializes in helping patients of South Asian heritage moderate heart disease risk factors and obesity trends with a comprehensive lifestyle modification approach that has delivered exceptional results. Dr. Sinha's The South Asian Health Solution is the first book to provide an ancestral health-based wellness plan culturally tailored for South Asians. In particular, South Asians living outside of India in countries such as the United States, England, and Canada, show an even greater disease risk due to their immersion into Western dietary and lifestyle habits.
This book covers some of the following topics:
South Asian-specific risk factors and how to accurately interpret cholesterol and body composition readings
Key lifestyle changes for weight loss and disease prevention
Three common cultural myths that lead to unhealthy habits
How to effectively manage sleep, stress, and fatigue
And specific tips for women, children, and seniors.

Life changing book
The book is filled with so many great health advice, everytime I hear it I learn something new.
I haven't come across a book focused on South Asian health. In general, I would probably compare it with "How not To Die"
With his analogy and right amount of theoretical & practical advice; Dr. Sinha presents a very complex material in a simple to understand manner
Small changes make big difference
I wish to see more such books
