Illness and ailment used to define me. I was addled by theories and advice on what I needed to do to get back on track and my life-light was dimming. I had a litany of health challenges and they were defeating me, until through luck, desperation, and determination I found answers.
Anthony Field is an international superstar – the founder and co-star of mega-successful chidlren’s band, The Wiggles (he’s the blue one). He’s spent more than 20 years Wiggling, singing and smiling his way around the world. But that happy face, which has in turn brought happiness to so many youngsters (and adults, too) has often hidden a lot. For years, Field battled with depression, illness and chronic illness, at times so bad that he struggled to take the stage. He had seen numerous doctors and tried different treatment regimes.At times he despaired of ever finding a cure.
Field’s life was changed forever when he met two revolutionary chiropractors, who helped him to get his health – indeed, his whole life – back. In How I Got My Wiggle Back, he details the health and fitness regime which he used, and continues to use to stay healthy. Readers are offered a step by step guide to follow the same process to improve their own health.
This is an inspiring story. Field offers an honest, intimate look at his personal journey, The Wiggles’ journey, and the story of his health struggles, which is both entertaining and moving. The practical guide to getting and staying healthy will also inspire readers to work towards better health.
