Popular physician and personality Art Hister's practical, humorous guide to reaching a ripe old age in the best of health.

Dr. Art Hister is well known for his authoritative, common- sense, and very funny books about how to stay healthy. Following on the heels of the highly successful Midlife Man, this book presents Hister's advice for avoiding disease and living well, now and into the golden years.

Taking a straightforward approach, Dr. Hister tells you how to eat, drink, exercise, sleep, and not smoke your way to good health and long life. He also leads you through the maze of conflicting information about diet, weighs the pros and cons of alcohol, and discusses various exercise programs and stop-smoking techniques. In addition, Dr. Hister looks at non-traditional therapies such as acupuncture, naturopathy, reflexology, and herbal therapies, and gives advice about when to see your doctor. Authoritative, up-to-date, and written in Dr. Hister's trademark humorous style, Dr. Art Hister's Guide to Living a Long and Healthy Life contains a plethora of practical, down-to-earth information for anyone who cares about his or her health.
