“Satire is the highest form of social commentary as Dr. Erin Stair demonstrates in this funny but deeply revealing journey into the competing worlds of Big Pharma and the Wellness Industrial Complex. Who better to expose both sides’ promises of a quick fix than a doctor who has a foot in both worlds?”
ZUBIN DAMANIA MD, founder of Zdoggmd.
The Description from the Back of the Book:
“Krystal Heeling is the CEO of Verdant Corpora, a boutique wellness brand and, when she writes an email to her brand ambassadors, she doesn’t pull her punches. “If I catch any of you appealing to the broke and not the woke, you will no longer represent our brand,” she writes in one of her trademark missives. Holding tight to the reigns of the power Krystal wields in the world of supplements, detoxes and New Age therapies, she crisply and methodically instructs her Wellness Ambassadors on the dos and (many) don’ts of the luxurious wellness industry.
In a series of letters, Krystal responds to her team’s legitimate concerns, such as questionable supplement ingredients and lack of scientific evidence for their product claims, while always pointing out why Verdant Corpora is far more ethical than Big Pharma, an industry of profit hounds and data manipulators. Heeling’s underlings fall like flies as they unwittingly commit one solecism after another, falling short of the Paltrowian ideals to which Heeling so ardently aspires; principles that she herself cannot consistently achieve.
Yours in Wellness, Dr. Stair’s second book, is a short, incisive, humorous take on the wellness industry that you will be sure to enjoy while sipping an $11 acai-wheatgrass kombucha. As we say in the land of coffee enemas, “Bottoms Up!”
Ever ask your dog to review your book? I don’t advise it.

Meet Becka, King and Chase. It’s about embracing uncertainty and letting go of the need to have answers to, “Why did this happen?”
A Note to Anyone Who Reads or Listens to Yours in Wellness:
Thank you. It’s my first time writing parody, but I think humor is an excellent way to tackle uncomfortable truths. That said, I hope you found it enjoyable, and if you did (or didn’t), please leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews are so important for authors, and it would mean the world to me!
