I Fired My Doctors ans Saved My Life
Sam Sewell thought about making the title of his book “Buy this book for your man and save his life”. Not only do many men have little interest in their own health, they will actively avoid other people, usually the women in their lives, any time they attempt to call attention to the obvious. Sometimes men accuse the women who love them of nagging. Sewell was that way. His wife and daughters pointed out that his lifestyle was like committing suicide on an installment plan. He embraced the “alpha male” attitude: "If I hurt, I will just tough it out and conquer the problem with determination and power." His new “self” doesn't pretend to be Superman. Radical life style change saved his life. The research that has gone into this book includes scientific studies supporting the conclusion that changing how you live will cure you and protect you better than drugs or surgery. So, Sewell doesn't really expect men to buy this book. He urges women to save men’s lives and give them this book.
This book is dedicated to my wife,
the women in my family,
and to women everywhere
who strive to be heard by men
who can not see their own vulnerability.
I am thankful to the many scientists for all of the bodies of research that I explored and added to my Total Life Saving Regimen. I gratefully attribute my recovery to scientists, faith, family, and friends.
I would especially like to acknowledge Shannon Fischer, MA, a researcher and science writer, without whom this book would be a lesser creation. She contributed greatly to the development of this book, by editing my words, researching my claims, and even writing significant portions of the more science-based chapters you will read. Many thanks for the investment and effort she put into this project.

|Reviewed by Sam Sewell
|I want to emphasize that this book is a well-written, interesting story, as well as being solidly researched and scientifically accurate. Here is what people are saying about it:
"Well researched, and scientifically sound, yet full of the pathos and humor of a well lived life. The stress management chapter alone is worth the price of the book."
Selwyn Mills, PhD - Author of "Prisoner of Romance"
"As a clinical psychologist and a person committed to a healthy lifestyle, I found your book to be very affirming and amazingly informative. When you have it all complete and published I'm looking forward to purchasing copies for my patients. The careful scientific research you completed clearly illuminates a path for long-term health and survival."
Deborah Coe Silver, Psy.D
"I love this book. 'Stop treating symptoms and start treating causes' is your theme, and for some reason this is lost on most people. You have documented why this is true with panache, style and erudite wisdom. It is a must read." Gene N. Landrum, PhD - Author of The Superman Syndrome - Paranoia & Power - Is Your Life a Comedy or a Tragedy?
I really appreciate your openness and honesty about your denial, fears, and depression at the same time your humor is evident throughout your writing. There are undoubtedly many people who can identify with you and can be helped by reading your book.

"Sam and Bunny Sewell make clear a hidden health crisis in America; the male tendency to avoid health related issues."
Amber Lenfert, M.S.H. Senior Health Educator
I am a licensed medical professional. Traditional western medicine has saved many lives. But it is up to you to read and be informed, think outside the box. Read this book and you will have a great advantage toward a healthy, happy life.
As an ARNP (Nurse Practitioner) with more than a passing interest in the American Healthcare system, I highly recommend this work. Sam could have surrendered to the weighty and costly consequences of his diagnosis as presented by "expert opinion" (read Cardiology). Instead, Sam took ownership of the situation, and with the help of his family and friends, has turned his crisis into a great learning tool that is also a good read.

A MUST READ!!!! Buy this book now and most importantly, when it arrives read it immediately, then pass on to a friend and order more for your other friends. If you don't learn something and grow and have a better lifestyle from reading this book, than you haven't cracked the binding... IT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE!
It is so well written and chock full of goodies. It has touched me deeply and had me crying and laughing (sometimes almost at the same time) and many other emotions in between.
"Your wisdom, wit, intelligence, research and commitment to reality regarding victory over heart disease and death should be required reading for every doctor, patient, hospital staff, care giver, and pharmacist."
You are really doing a great favor for the "laymen of the world. Every man I know will hear about this book from me. Sam remains Superman, because he had the courage to change! Cristal O'Meara
