About the author

Summer Accardo, RN

Summer Accardo, RN is a registered nurse who has a passion for health, wellness and nutrition. She enjoys writing books about how proper nutrition and food preparation methods can enhance optimal health, while boosting immunity.

She is the former Director of Nursing Services for a large, 400 bed facility, and enjoys educating students and patients on how to manage chronic disease, pain, anxiety and depression.

Summer enjoyed working in critical care units such as coronary care and intensive care, and was always encouraged when her patients made progress and were well enough to transfer to a regular medical floor. She often visited her patients after they transferred off the critical care unit, and was always overjoyed when they remembered her.

Although Summer has been a registered nurse for years, she still becomes overjoyed when patients tell her that they appreciate the kind, compassionate and professional care they were given while Summer took care of them.

She believes that when a person is ill, kindness, a smile, and lots of encouragement play important roles in the healing process. While sharp clinical and assessment skills are very important in patient management, emotional support is just as important in returning the patient back to his pre-illness state of mind.

She believes that every single staff member in a hospital needs to have exceptional bedside manner skills in order to help the patient feel good about his care and recovery.

When a patient knows that his physicians, nurses, certified nursing assistants, lab personnel, therapists and dietary personnel will interact with him in a kind, compassionate and courteous manner, he is more motivated to participate in his own recovery.

Summer has years of experience working in an emergency room at a large teaching hospital, labor and delivery, general surgery, pediatrics and geriatrics. She has written #1 best selling books, entitled, "The Ultimate Holistic Healing Guide To Health And Wellness: 50 Tips To Improve Your Health And Skyrocket Your Immunity," and "The Ultimate Holistic Healing Guide To Health And Wellness, 2nd Edition." In addition to her 2 best sellers, Summer has written 18 other books on health and wellness, fitness, and healthy cooking.
