Slowing down the body's aging process starts with proper exercise and good nutrition, aided by vitamin supplements. This book offers suggestions for appropriate, health-enhancing sports and exercise during middle age and later years. Recommended therapies for specific age-related health and injury problems include massage, acupuncture, naturopathy, vitamin supplements, prescription drugs, and, in extreme cases, surgery. Options for Health titles present health advice and information gathered from a wide range of conventional and alternative sources. Each book speaks to health and fitness problems by covering virtually all possible remedies from simple quick-fix solutions to options for professional help from therapists and medical doctors. Tips, answers to problems, and fitness suggestions in these books have been drawn from sources as diverse as latest nutritional science findings, ancient herbal remedies, modern medicine, and long-established, widely accepted therapies. Each book's text is supplemented with approximately 40 full-color photos and illustrations.
