Book Review: Younger You (McGraw-Hill, 2007) by Eric R. Braverman, M.D.
Don’t we all wish to not just appear younger, but to also feel younger?
Younger You promises to help the reader unlock the hidden power of your brain to look and feel 15 years younger. The author, Eric R. Braverman, M.D. is the director of the Place for Achieving Total Health (PATH) Medical Center in New York. Younger You has received positive comments from notable doctor-authors: Nicholas Perricone, Isadore Rosenfeld, and David Perlmutter.
Younger You is broken into 6 parts:
1. Your ageprint—you’re only as old as your oldest part. Disease occurs in stages so catch problems early with suggested ultrasounds for proper treatment. Braverman recommends the usage of bioidentical hormones; supplementation—zinc, fish oil, and others; follow a diet rich in fruits and vegetables; exercise. This section includes ageprint quizzes to help the reader identify problems within the body and begin him on the path to wellness.
2. Your brain as the key—lack of dopamine, a brain-produced chemical, lowers energy, affecting the rest of the body. Braverman explains the correlation between the brain and obesity, offering several possibilities of solution. The seven stages of cognitive decline, the loss of GABA, and the relation of Serotonin to happiness are pointed out and effective methods to counter undesirable conditions are discussed.
3. The overworked cardiovascular system—referred to as “cardiopause” by Braverman, it is the slowing and aging of the heart. An estimated 700,000 Americans will have a heart attack this year. Braverman asserts that the condition can be reversed. The top five risk factors include family history, smoking, hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol.
4. The modulating systems—includes thyropause (the weakening of metabolism), immunopause (the inability to fight infection)
5. Aging Sexuality—relates to, hormones, menopause for women and andropause for men.
6. Your Aging Frame: Bones, Muscles, and Skin—bone and muscle loss are not inevitable, but must be addressed instead.
Key concepts of Younger You:
* Conventional medicine is equivalent to an assembly line, only viewing parts of the body for treatment, rather than using an integrative whole-person approach.
* Virtually all illness and disease can be detected from the outside.
* When one part of the body fails, it signals an aging code to the rest of the body, which responds in kind.
* Each part of the body has markers for aging. These are the warning signs.
* Diagnostic testing pinpoints the aging code of every organ.
Throughout Younger You, Braverman shows the reader which natural supplements and their dosages will help for each condition/disease. He also suggests new research to support testing. A good example from p. 166 “Minor leaks of protein in your urine (albuminuria) is an early indicator of stroke or heart attack." Interspersed, Braverman also refers to various types of food, explaining how certain foods benefit or harm the body.
Considered to be a book about wellness, Younger You is also about antiaging. It represents recent discoveries in research which can be directly applied for life-saving benefits. Younger You helps the reader find out what his/her real bodily age is and understand how to act on this knowledge.
Just released as a paperback, Younger You has been made more affordable for everyone to reap the benefits of Dr. Eric R. Braverman's knowledge.
