Praise for Sustainable Wellness

“At long last a manual on the fine details of wellness! Supported by an extensive bibliography and years of experience, the authors lay out a series of tools to help guide those of us in need of refocusing our lives. The language is explicit, succinct and easily comprehensible by everyone regardless of background. Health care professionals will particularly be enthralled with the easy to follow suggestions that cover topics in detail not discussed elsewhere. A book for the 21st century and beyond that you will come back to often. I thank the authors for their time and dedication and the readily apparent passion they display throughout this scholarly book. It is truly a must read.”

“From the voices of two masterful healers, readers hear the simple truths that enable us to achieve the health and wellness we so desire. Because Matt and Heather clearly serve others and navigate their own journeys of health and healing, their approach is simultaneously practical and profound. What I admire most about their work is that it leaves me with renewed confidence in myself as a healer. It’s the most empowering feeling to recognize that “I am the healer I am seeking” and have the tools and knowledge to make it so!”

In Sustainable Wellness, Dr. Matt Mumber draws on his many years of personal and professional experience to offer a powerful, inspiring approach to creating sustainable body/mind/spirit health and wellbeing. His vision of whole-person medicine is a gift for anyone seeking a healthier, more authentic, and more fulfilling life. Individuals, and medicine as a whole, will benefit greatly from his wisdom, caring, and insights.”

“Dr. Matt and Heather Reed understand that achieving and maintaining sustainable wellness requires that we go beyond the current doctor (teacher) and patient (submissive sufferer) paradigm. This wonderful book artfully explains why health starts within oneself; a patient-centered approach to care is best achieved with true physician collaboration; and self-efficacy can be practiced and beneficial in myriad ways, based on each person’s unique makeup.”

Glenn Sabin
Cancer Survivor and Founder of FON therapeutics

“Sustainable Wellness is a breath of fresh air in the health care field. Clearly written with simple suggestions, it opens the door to recognizing that wellness is available to each person, right now!”

“As the spouse of a 10 year cancer survivor and as a collaborator with Dr. Mumber, I have seen his integrative approach to Sustainable Wellness at work in two different aspects of my life and that of my wife. I’m delighted that he and Heather Reed have written this book, so that you don’t need to have cancer or engage in a research project to learn these life tools. I have been surprised and impressed by the power that these tools provide in my life.”

“This is a book which is filled with the wisdom of a caring physician whom I have known for many decades. He lives the sermon and his experience and words can coach and guide you through the choices and difficulties life presents to us all. We can choose to let love into our prison and with the wisdom contained here create a new life and self whom we can love; thus giving our bodies a live message and reaping the physical benefits of a healed life.”

Bernie Siegel, MD
Author of Faith, Hope & Healing and A Book of Miracles

“Matthew Mumber, M.D., aka Dr. Matt, continues his life’s passion for Integrative Medicine using his remarkable balance between the highly technical work of Radiation Oncology and his genuine caring and love for the whole person he is treating. This insightful book is more than a formula or recipe for health, but rather a fundamental philosophy of life with realistic and practical techniques for implementation. Dr. Mumber has found the perfect collaborator in Heather – the medical scientist and the ever-aware and deeply feeling yoga professional. Both have clearly learned from the other and the combination is a powerful gift to the reader.”

Bill Todd
Professor of the Practice, College of Management, Georgia Tech; past President, Georgia Cancer Coalition

“Dr. Matt and Heather draw on their experiences and practices to provide a well marked path to health. This book gives the reader confidence and inspiration to follow their own journey to wellness. I highly recommend it to all who wish to find that most elusive jewel of life: balance.”

“Sustainable Wellness removed me from my frightening path of cancer. It brought my mind, body, and spirit back to living. I am a lady in my 60’s and for the first time in my life I “really wrapped my mind around the concept of breath.” I finally understand the gift of breath being with me from my moment of birth until my last breath at death. I finally understand the respect my breath is due from me as an individual. Now I can close my eyes, take conscious breaths in and out, and physically and spiritually rejoice at the sounds, feelings, and wellness my breath provides me throughout each day. The program taught me how to cultivate awareness for the remainder of my time. I thank Dr. Matt and Heather for sharing the warmth in their hearts and the knowledge in their minds. They gave me the support that I needed to once again “see the light” on this beloved earth and to trust bringing conventional, complementary and alternative medicine together. I found my smile again!”
