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. Now he gives us a book about aging that is unlike any other. Drawing on the new science of biogerontology (the biology of aging) as well as on the secrets of healthy longevity — diet, activity and attitude — 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.

-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

User Review  - Nancy Patterson - Goodreads

Right on but for the very long chapter about things like coffee, wine, and cheese that are better when they are older. That's supposed to make me better??? Excellent appendices that can serve as daily reminders. Read full review
