Total years in practice: 20
Dr. Kevin Hoffarth graduated from medical school in 2000, and completed his family medicine residency at Creighton University in 2003. In his first ten years as a family physician, he worked in every area of medicine possible; from births to deaths and everything in between. During those years in the trenches, he realized that how he was taught to approach the ailments of his patients could be vastly improved upon. It was then that he decided to embark on a medical journey to seek out and learn the new philosophies and ways of more effectively treating 21st century medical issues. In his book, Dr. Hoffarth guides us through the knowledge he has gathered across this journey, his 7 years of experience implementing what he learned along the way, and the appreciation he has gained towards the ties that bind us all. He will walk you through his application of treating the 5 “S.T.A.M.P” triggers, along with his basic principles on tackling illness, building discipline, and learning how to be your best self both physically and mentally. In light of today’s pandemic, the SARS-nCoV-2019 virus’s game plan is to hurt the most vulnerable, and spread to as many people as possible. In traditional medical terminology, vulnerability is determined by "pre-existing conditions", and the bar for those is lower than you think. In his book, Dr. Hoffarth colorfully explains what healthy really looks like in terms of how our body functions, and what you may unknowingly be missing. Through following his guidance, you'll find that your optimal self is easy to obtain, and that fear of illness can take a back seat to living your life. He takes the brilliant complexities of our body and explain them in a way that is easily digestible and effortlessly implementable. No other book brings everything you need to know about your body into a single read.
