Are you deeply healthy?

Not just free of disease or illness, but living with a profound sense of vitality that sustains you as you move through your life? This can be hard to achieve in the midst of life’s competing priorities…whether it’s our families, our careers, our social lives, or our passions, our attention and care is often focused more on those around us than on ourselves. And, as a result, we get depleted.

But in order to sustain all the things you care most deeply about, you need to build a strong foundation of health and vitality. In The Vitality Map: A Guide to Deep Health, Joyful Self-Care, & Resilient Well-Being, Dr. Deborah Zucker shows you how.

Transforming Your Relationship to Health

Each year, thousands of new health books are published offering quick, easy lifestyle changes that will lead you to the “promised land” of overflowing vitality and boundless energy. While many of these approaches are valid, few are built to last. When confronted with the inevitable pressures and old habits, our best intentions often crumble.

Why? Most health solutions don’t go deep enough. They focus on symptoms, ingredients, habits, diets, and exercises. But they don’t get to the bottom of your fundamental relationship to health and how you care for yourself. In The Vitality Map, Dr. Deborah guides you on a deep and transformative journey that helps you to build a strong foundation for long-term health, vitality, and well-being.

Based on her own profound health transformation and her work as a Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Deborah helps you to disentangle from the patterns that hold you back from real and lasting health breakthroughs:
•  The boom and bust cycles
•  The constant need to put others first
•  The feeling that no matter what health strategy you try, you always end up back in the same place

By going step-by-step through her 9 Keys, you’ll skillfully shine a light on these unconscious patterns and build new ones that will guide you on your health journey.

The Vitality Map reveals the path you need to take to find your true self and fulfill your meaningful desires and needs. Deborah’s words are a guidebook and life coach on your journey through life.”

The 9 Keys to Deep Vitality

 

The Vitality Map isn’t just a book full of theories and ideas. Dr. Deborah’s 9 Keys are based on her own personal health journey — a struggle with chronic fatigue and other persistent health issues in which she uncovered many of the hidden assumptions and habits that were holding her back from being deeply healthy.

Key 1: Honoring Your Unique Life
You are the only one who can transform your health and find a path that will sustain you in the long run. Doctors can help. Friends can help. Family can help. But only you hold the keys to make your life blossom, flourish, and thrive.

Key 3: Strengthening Your Self-Awareness Muscles
In order to become a conscious steward of your own vitality, you need to learn the art of receiving feedback from your body. Your body will tell you what it needs, and as you learn to heed what it has to say, you become your own best health guide.

Key 5: Aligning with Your Yes!
Learn to consciously invest your life energy where you get the best returns, and let go of those things that are inhibiting your natural and organic blossoming.

Key 7: Discovering Easeful Discipline
In order to sustain the changes you seek, you sometimes need clear commitments, intelligent strategy, and structures of support. This kind of discipline springs from a dedication to honoring your unique life – fierce, yet full of compassion.

Key 9: Living Like You Matter
Your health isn’t just about you. It is the foundation that you need to serve the world. You are a vital member of life. Our world needs you! You need you. You matter.

Key 1: Honoring Your Unique Life
You are the only one who can transform your health and find a path that will sustain you in the long run. Doctors can help. Friends can help. Family can help. But only you hold the keys to make your life blossom, flourish, and thrive.

Key 2: Facing & Embracing Your Shadows
The main obstacle to deep health and vitality are the unconscious thought-patterns, assumptions, and other shadow aspects of ourselves that sabotage even the best intentions to change. When you illuminate and embrace these shadows, you free your capacity to sustain the transformation you seek.

Key 3: Strengthening Your Self-Awareness Muscles
In order to become a conscious steward of your own vitality, you need to learn the art of receiving feedback from your body. Your body will tell you what it needs, and as you learn to heed what it has to say, you become your own best health guide.

Key 4: Cultivating Resilience
Most of us were never taught how to guide ourselves towards actions, attitudes, and practices that support rather than hinder our own vitality. Learn to cultivate your capacity to direct yourself in more nourishing directions with discernment, skillfulness, and confidence.

Key 5: Aligning with Your Yes!
Learn to consciously invest your life energy where you get the best returns, and let go of those things that are inhibiting your natural and organic blossoming.

Key 6: Experimenting with Playful Curiosity
Free yourself from the trap of being too serious about health and self-care — all of the rights and wrongs, the shoulds and shouldn’ts. Learn to be flexible, curious, and playful on your health journey so you can sustain it in the long run.

Key 7: Discovering Easeful Discipline
In order to sustain the changes you seek, you sometimes need clear commitments, intelligent strategy, and structures of support. This kind of discipline springs from a dedication to honoring your unique life – fierce, yet full of compassion.

Key 8: Inviting Support & Connection
No ingredient is more powerful and essential than developing relationships that will support you in your health journey. You can’t do it alone. We all need each other.

Key 9: Living Like You Matter
Your health isn’t just about you. It is the foundation that you need to serve the world. You are a vital member of life. Our world needs you! You need you. You matter.

Key 2: Facing & Embracing Your Shadows
The main obstacle to deep health and vitality are the unconscious thought-patterns, assumptions, and other shadow aspects of ourselves that sabotage even the best intentions to change. When you illuminate and embrace these shadows, you free your capacity to sustain the transformation you seek.

“Every individual body, imbalance, and healing process is unique. Yet the shape of the hero’s journey of restoring health can be charted. And the practical know-how of navigating the detective work and practice of healing can be described. Dr. Deborah Zucker has traveled this path, and this book shares the wisdom, savvy and tips she’s learned navigating her own healing and in guiding others as a health practitioner. This lonely journey just got a little less lonely.”

Terry Patten

Karen Wyatt, MD

Author of What Really Matters

“Dr. Deborah Zucker’s beautiful new book is a compelling and compassionate guide that’s at once user-friendly and sword-of-truth. Above all, it’s devoted to the idea that what she calls “deep health” is far more than the avoidance of infirmity, or a matter of diet and exercise, but a function of what most deeply brings us alive. It’s about how mindful we are of our day-in day-out lives, how authentic we allow ourselves to be, how we talk to ourselves when no one’s around, and what most deeply nourishes us. In short, what inspires vitality in our lives and what defeats it. This is a heartful and hopeful read!”

Gregg Levoy

Author, Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life

“Dr. Zucker provides your personalized roadmap to freedom, health, and happiness. Embracing the feminine, the shadow, and bringing in her rich experience as a mind-body-spirit provider, I have yet to encounter a more insightful, well-crafted, and helpful book.”

“Dr. Zucker manages to go way beyond current spiritual and medical paradigms without violently shredding those ideas to pieces as I’ve too often seen. She truly has stood upon the shoulders of giants with grace and has offered a logical, doable system for healing and for living our greatest potential. By incorporating the strengths of both the left and right brain and inviting us to viscerally embody her time tested ideas through various recommendations and exercises, a new road-map of healing and wholeness has become clear. I believe this will be a bestseller for years to come!”

Dave Markowitz

Author of Self-Care for the Self-Aware

“Whether you face health challenges or wish to maintain your current health status, The Vitality Map is a wonderful guide to ensuring that you have covered all bases. So many of us obsess over our “numbers” on test results, or believe that taking our daily pills is the maximum expected of us to ensure our health. But it is far from the truth. We now understand that the body/mind/spirit connection must be factored into our daily regimen. Consider this book for yourself or for a friend with health challenges.”
