In the Healthy Living series, Chicken Soup for the Soul partners with the nation's top medical experts and organizations to give emotional support and important information to patients with specific medical needs. The books feature approximately ten heartwarming stories from real people dealing and thriving with all aspects of the condition, followed by relevant medical advice that will positively impact the reader's life. Subjects such as diet, psychological issues, family relations, and alternative therapies will exist side-by-side with traditional subjects such as understanding common medical terms, the effects of treatment options, and the doctor-patient relationship.
Each book will also contain source notes and a resources section for more information and support. The goal is to give people the information they need in a new format that is interesting, heartfelt, personal and ultimately uplifting. Many people buy medicine for their bodies; the Chicken Soup Healthy Living series is medicine for the soul.
