The Longevity Code
Your Personal Prescription for A Longer, Sweeter LifeBook - 2001
We're all interested in living a long life, but few of us are willing to sacrifice everything to attain that longevity. After all, what good is living an additional decade at the expense of enjoying the previous ones?Far from being just another off-putting list of strict prohibitions, this book zeroes in on the key factor for optimal longevity: balance. Dr. Paster introduces us to the five spheres of wellness: the physical, mental, kinship/social, spiritual, and material spheres. Within each of these, he pinpoints the most threatening busters -- those lifestyle aspects that will, sooner or later, kill you. And for each buster, he recommends the most advantageous boosters -- habits that will counteract the buster and not only extend your life, but also improve your quality of living.The Longevity Code is the long-awaited comprehensive guide to health care for the next century, striking the perfect balance between a healthful diet and a soul-satisfying meal with friends, between growing old gracefully and living life to the fullest.
