Chapter I:

How Did I Get Here

“Nothing will happen if you stand by idly or just wish for it. A healthy lifestyle requires work, and no one is going to do it for you, but yourself.”

We had to be up an hour earlier to finish the chore and make it to school on time. It’s also the only city outside Antarctica that doesn’t have snow days.

I grew up in the late 1960s in a predominantly Black community on the South Side of Chicago. The city of Chicago has been noted as one of the most segregated cities in the U.S. The neighborhood schools were okay but were never an option for our family’s longterm educational pursuits. I did go to the neighborhood school, Burnside Elementary, for kindergarten, and I boastfully said they didn’t have anything for me educationally, so I took my talents to the Shiloh Academy, about 30 minutes from our home.

I marvel at those who describe their neighborhood as “one big family.” That wasn’t my family’s story. My dad was quite conservative and protective, so we didn’t routinely socialize with people outside of church or school, where he was also a teacher. Because we didn’t spend much time playing outside, it was almost by osmosis that I also learned a lot about how our family prepared meals. Our home is where my first beliefs and habits surrounding food, work ethic, and faith became ingrained.

``Our DNA shapes the foundation of our story, but it is our choices that determine the chapters and how its unfolds.``

Dr. Michael McHenry is passionate about healthy, wholesome living that can be achieved with lifestyle changes including a plant- based diet, exercising, maintaining a deep meaningful relationship with God and family, enjoying nature and living life to the fullest. He is practical in living out these principles daily and does not miss an opportunity to share his health and faith journey with patients or his colleagues. His expertise on the subject matter is directly aligned to his life experiences therefore making his perspective, credible and authentic. As a former colleague, I can attest to his dedication and drive daily to achieve a healthy, consistent and balanced lifestyle. I believe this book, "Life Support" will offer readers the necessary steps needed to begin the process of change in every aspect of their lives. E

The wisdom of “Life Support” is that Dr. McHenry, through science and lived experience, guides readers to the most observable, most measurable, most controllable asset in healthcare, our lifestyle. Forgoing dependence on the healthcare industry and fads in pragmatic ways, he puts you, me, us back in the driver’s seat on the journey to living well. M

Dr. McHenry’s work with our church’s Health Ministries Dept. was meaningful because he helped many people to realize the connection between our physical health and our spiritual/emotional well-being. I can’t wait to read his book! He is truly an expert in what really makes a person whole. J
