Dr. Zembroski on why he wrote “Rebuild”
Rebuild your body. Reframe your mind.
The story behind the book
Dr. Robert Zembroski
You have a 5-inch tumor in your chest
I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Behind my sternum sat a five-inch tumor.
After a combined seven months of toxic chemo and radiation—which diminished but did not eradicate the cancer—my prognosis looked grim. In a table discussion with my doctors at one of the “top” cancer hospitals, the topic was stem-cell transplant.
The plan was to infuse me with white blood cells from my brother, in the hope that his immune system would search and destroy the cancer. The preparation for the transplant involved more chemo to suppress my immune system. As I contemplated the upcoming procedure and its potential health risks for me, I realized—based on my education and experience—that a stem-cell transplant would not work for me.
I developed a Plan B. I challenged the doctors to remove the tumor, a procedure they claimed never to have done before in cases like mine. But I persisted, so 2 years after my diagnosis, my chest was opened and the entire tumor was removed.
I developed a protocol
That operation saved my life. However, the cumulative effect of nearly two years of chemo, radiation, and major surgery left me with new challenges.
Yes, I was cancer-free, but I was also exhausted, and weak. I asked myself, “Now what? How can I rebuild myself?
How can I reverse the damage caused by the toxic effects of the treatments? How can I move beyond crisis care to fitness and health?”
My goal was to prevent recurrence and create the ultimate healthy body—one that was disease-free, low-fat, and lean.
Reading through research on nutrition, nutritional biochemistry, genetics, cancer, endocrinology (the study of hormones), chronic disease, and exercise physiology, I developed a protocol—a personal plan that saved my life and allowed me to rebuild myself to a level of health that exceeded how I had felt before.
Why REBUILD—the book?
I never lost sight of victory.
The specialists in crisis care—the “ologists”—had each done their piece, but they had nothing to offer me in my quest to rebuild myself, or to help me prevent a serious health issue from returning.
So, I submerged myself into the research, and from that, I finally mapped out a path—a personal plan that not only saved my life, it allowed me to rebuild myself to a level of health that exceeded how I was before.
I, perhaps like you, was fearful, confused, and frustrated about my health crisis. While studying the latest research on the mechanisms of disease, I realized it must be difficult for people without the necessary time, knowledge or background to find and interpret useful and real information, and use it to create a personalized protocol to rebuild themselves back to excellent health and prevent recurrence of their chronic health issues.
Understanding others difficulty and confusion, my personal experience, coupled with what I see my patients experience when trying to navigate the standard healthcare system—confusion, poor results or no results—allowed me to put this information together.
I put it together in a digestible, step-by-step format that would allow you to create your own personalized protocol in order to rebuild your body after a health crisis or other unresolved health issue and prevent recurrence; lose toxic fat, and get lean.
To respond to your needs, I wrote . . . REBUILD.
“Whether or not you are dealing with a health crisis, REBUILD is an invaluable resource to anyone navigating his or her own health journey.”Joan Lunden

What you get
Medical Tests to Evaluate your Condition
To help you quickly recover and prevent future health issues, this section provides the right tests for your specific condition. It also outlines what testing can help you prevent disease and maintain your health overall. REBUILD is the only guide that outlines the right medical tests that can uncover why you developed your health issues, and what tests can monitor the changes in your physiology, so you can track the changes in your personal rebuild.
Personalized Nutrient Recommendations
Research-based nutraceuticals (supplements) have been shown to assist the body to repair itself in a disease process; to speed recovery after medical procedures; to make pharmaceutical-based therapies more effective; and to prevent chronic health issues. REBUILD provides recommendations of specific nutrients to help you recover and rebuild from your chronic health issues.
A Customizable Food Plan
Discover how certain nutrients can quickly help you rebuild from your disease, or chronic health issue, prevent recurrence, and give you sustained energy all day long. You will learn also what type of foods control certain hormones that can cause the production of fat, the elimination of fat, and the reversal of disease. REBUILD lays out the steps for you to create a food plan specific and unique to your needs and/or specific health condition.
Exercise Techniques Proven to Rebuild
A specific type of exercise has been shown to reverse and prevent disease, regulate hormones, reduce inflammation, and quickly eliminate dangerous body fat. REBUILD explains how to add this type of exercise to your busy schedule to quickly help you heal and manage the levels of fat and lean muscle in the body.
Understand The Anatomy of Disease
Are diseases genetically predetermined or self-induced? Learn how major diseases and other chronic health issues develop, not as a consequence of broken genes, but by dysfunction in the internal terrain of the body. REBUILD presents the current research on how the major diseases develop, as well as what we need to know to quickly recover from them and prevent recurrence.
Reset your Internal Clock
Sleep is so important for health, as it helps us heal and recharges our batteries. A lack of sleep disrupts many internal functions of the body, which ultimately sets the stage for disease by increasing inflammation, preventing repair of cells, increasing hormone abnormalities, and suppressing the immune system. REBUILD provides tips and tools for you to get a good night’s sleep and what to investigate if you are having a hard time getting enough sleep.
Dial Down the Stress Response
Stressors and the stress reaction have been shown to ignite and fuel diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease, and even obesity. REBUILD presents the current research on the link between stress and disease, and it lays out simple strategies to keep those stressors in check so you quickly recover and prevent future health issues.
Everyday toxins can be a serious hazard. From the foods we eat and the water we drink to a wide range of environmental chemicals, we are contaminated every day with unregulated substances with known and unknown toxicity. At high enough levels, toxins are poisonous to our cells, tissues, and organs—and can become a primary cause of disease. REBUILD presents the latest research on the most common toxins found in our foods, water, and environment, as well as how specific toxins can create chronic disease and, yes, even obesity.

Why you need this book
Medical Errors are the 3rd Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.
New research out of the Journal of Patient Safety estimates up to 440,000 Americans are dying annually from preventable hospital errors, trailing heart disease and cancer. The top 3 errors documented were:
- #1) Life-shortening errors from failure to follow medical guidelines
- #2) Procedures done wrong that weren’t documented
- #3) Failure to make the right diagnosis
Hospital Error Fatalities
This puts medical errors as the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, underscoring the need for patients to get informed to protect themselves and their families from potential harm. The need to be informed has never been more timely, important, and urgent.

Diabetes & High Blood Pressure
“I visited my internist for my annual check up. He told me to start blood-pressure and diabetes medications.
I was angry because I had become diabetic, and because the internist offered no solutions other than pharmaceuticals. I don’t like taking drugs, and I knew there had to be a better way.
I needed to get to the cause of my problems, and I remembered hearing Dr. Z on the on the radio.
After seven months on his rebuild program, I have lost 30 pounds; significantly reduced my body fat, and my cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and blood sugar are in the normal ranges.
I also no longer need my C-pap machine for sleep apnea. I feel like I’m twenty years old again. I continue to follow Dr. Z’s rebuild regimen of supplements, exercise, and eating the foods that are good for me. I have made a difference in my life, which has affected people around me.
I feel like a poster boy for Dr. Z. I am always asked, “Tom, how did you lose all that weight? You look great!” My answer is simple: “It’s a lifestyle change.” I have referred over ten people to Dr. Z, and I continue to spread the word about how to live a longer life, with a healthier lifestyle.
Dr. Z, thanks for saving my life!”

I’ve been through hell with my health. I know what it’s like to feel scared, frustrated, angry, and confused—to not know where to turn in search for answers.
I know what it’s like to feel sick, over-medicated, over-fat, and tired; wishing I had better managed my health—and my crazy stress—before I received the diagnosis of a life-threatening disease.
I’m extremely disheartened with the ridiculous health care—or lack of it—that people receive when trying to get their health issues resolved.
I am also frustrated by the way people are treated, misdiagnosed, and not given the real information about their health and the conditions they have.
It’s a crime that most physicians won’t spend the time to dig deep to really find out what’s ailing you and what created your health problems, whether it’s a major disease or some unresolved chronic health issue.
The standards of care are often dangerous because they are not specific enough.
Listen to Dave’s story about how the current medical tests he had were not specific to his health crisis. The “standard of care” often misses the real issue.
How frustrating is it to have no answers or solutions, but then to be bounced around from doctor to doctor? Each one tells you something different and arbitrarily does blood tests that end up telling you nothing about why you have the condition or why you feel the way you feel.
I understand that not everyone has the access or perhaps the means to experience functional medicine delivered in a clinical setting.
Writing Rebuild was the next best thing.
My goal is to provide the research about your condition, give you answers, and create tools for you to restore your health from a disease or some other chronic health issue.
I want to put the information and power into your hands, rather than have you rely on the broken “bandage and manage” disease-care system.
Rebuild is a guide—your personal road map to recover from a serious health issue, get you through your current treatment, or resolve your chronic health issues so they don’t become something more serious.
This book will bring back your sanity and your health.
Don’t just survive—come back better than before.
P.S. If you know a friend, family member, or colleague who has been struggling with unresolved health problems and is looking for answers, please let them know about Rebuild.
