A unique book about aging that draws on the science of biogerontology as well as on the secrets of healthy longevity, from the renowned Dr. Andrew Weil.
In each of his widely acclaimed, best-selling books, Dr. Andrew Weil has been an authoritative and companionable guide through a uniquely effective combination of traditional and nontraditional approaches to health and healthy living. Dr. Weil explains that there are a myriad of things we can do to keep our bodies and minds in good working order through all phases of life. Hugely informative, practical, and uplifting, Healthy Aging is infused with the engaging candor and common sense that have made Dr. Weil our most trusted source on healthy living.
With detailed information on:
-Learning to eat right: Following the anti-inflammatory diet, Dr. Weil’s guide to the nutritional components of a healthy lifestyle
-Separating myth from fact about the would-be elixirs of life extension — herbs, hormones, and anti-aging “medicines”
-Learning exercise, breathing and stress-management techniques to benefit your mind and body
-Understanding the science behind the aging process
-Keeping record of your life lessons to share with loved ones
Healthy Aging features a glossary, an appendix summarizing the Anti-Inflammatory Diet and an appendix of additional resources.
“Dr. Weil has arguably become American’s best-known doctor.” —The New York Times Magazine
“Forget plastic surgery. Skip the pricey face creams and the drugs for creaky bodies. Natural-medicine champion Weil, who’s now in his sixties, covers longevity research, aging, and how he’s embracing the experience.” —Life Magazine
“Weil wants us to be sensible about growing old. . . . He argues that we should not fight aging. There’s no winning that war. Instead, we should concentrate on aging well.”
—The Washington Post
As a licensed physician, Weil of course advises readers to talk to their own doctors about many of the supplements and measures discussed in the book. But he doesn't hide behind the disclaimers, and is quite ready to tell us what he believes. At the same time, he doesn't ram it down our throats, and presents alternative views as appropriate. All in all, a valuable source of information and a fascinating read.
