The Inspiring and Powerful Health Docuseries that America Has Been Waiting For
23 July 2019 | by mkrum-72948See all my reviews

"The Documentary That Will Inspire a Healthier Lifestyle", a bold phrase all too accurate in describing the content. Myself, and I'm sure millions of other Americans are guilty of watching one too many video in hopes of inspiring ourselves to be healthier, and not really achieving any result. The problem is that many of us don't know where to start, nor have an understanding of the consequences of poor health choices when we're young. Rx for Health is the long-awaited and much-needed cinematic production that pushes us up from the couch and into a better lifestyle. I personally enjoy movies that are thought-provoking, dramatic, and always engaging. I like a film that I am excited to talk to my friends about over a meal, and share an important message with. This film's excellent narration style makes you feel personally valued and worthy of self-care. The next generation's risk factor of cancers, diabetes, and other health dangers are higher than any prior generation. With our children being exposed to more risky lifestyle choices than ever before, including second-hand smoke, processed foods, and copious amounts of sugar, powerful films like Rx for Health are more needed than ever to shake our world and make a change once and for all! Jim Ryan's work in this documentary is both eye-opening and motivating, for parents and kids alike. This is the type of movie that you can sit your family down to watch, and have a thoughtful discussion about after. Health struggles are real. They are deeply personal, and felt throughout the entire family. Films like this inspire and empower its viewers to seek more information, to make the better choices now. By identifying and showing how to break the pattern of unhealthy habits, Ryan's documentary series offers hope for greater wellbeing for all who watch. There is no age limit to when you can begin a healthy lifestyle. But, for those who watch this docuseries, you'll look away from the screen excited to make the healthy lifestyle switch right now.
