The Perfect Medicine


Imagine a medicine that could make you live longer, healthier, happier, and stronger. What if that medicine was already right at your feet? Running is the miracle drug that can do all this and more — it is the perfect medicine.

Throughout his career, Dr. Brodie Ramin has seen cases of diabetes, hypertension, and anxiety that he has traced back to inactivity. Now more than ever, people are looking for inspiration and motivation to get fit, change their lives, and improve their overall wellness. In The Perfect Medicine Ramin shares with us the inspirational discovery that we already have the perfect medicine to treat and prevent these common illnesses and improve our health, but that too few people are taking the right “dose” or using it at all.

The Perfect Medicine explores the science of running and exercise and provides advice on how to maximize its benefits and be your best self. After rediscovering the joy of running in his early thirties, Ramin became fascinated by the activity. This book takes the reader on a personal journey of discovery, traces the evolution of running, shares strategies to get fit and run faster, and even shows that exercise can help people recover from addiction and mental health conditions.
