I am pleased and excited to tell you that my latest book,
Longevity Decoded – The 7 Keys to Healthy Living
has just been published and is available on Amazon. If you are a bit intrigued, read further.
A few years ago I was asked to give a talk about the aging process to a group of people contemplating moving to a retirement community. Expecting a dozen or so, I was delightfully surprised at the turnover of over 100, a group that asked many questions at the end. Then asked to do it again and in another venue, I felt that with this level of interest it would be worth while to write a book. For the past 2 ½ years I have interviewed experts, listened to lectures, done a lot of reading and then developed the book. Here is a summary
There is an inexorable process that begins in early adulthood in which every bodily function begins to decline at about 1% per year (with great variation from organ to organ, year to year and person to person.) Unnoticed at first, the decline eventually reaches a state where that organ’s function is impaired for daily living. For example, bone strength declines creating osteoporosis with the chance for bone fracture; cognitive decline leads to memory loss and muscle decline leads to loss of strength. Meanwhile, as aging progresses the risk for developing complex chronic illnesses such as coronary artery disease, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis or Alzheimer’s disease accelerates.
The aging process cannot be stopped and diseases cannot be entirely prevented but with modifications of lifestyles, the rate of decline can be significantly slowed and the risk of developing a chronic illness can be greatly reduced. The result will be a longer healthier life.
You can live a long and healthy life. There is no magic pill, injection, elixir or Fountain of Youth, but you can achieve it with simple lifestyle modifications:
1. Eating the right foods
2. Getting the right exercise
3. Reducing and managing stress
4. Improving the quality of sleep
5. Eliminating tobacco
6. Remaining intellectually engaged
7. Staying involved socially
The advice in Longevity Decoded – The 7 Keys to Healthy Aging works— because it has stood the test of time and because it puts you in charge of shaping your future. There is no monetary cost but it is a rigorous program that is admittedly difficult for many to implement fully.
Everyone wants to live a long and healthy life—Longevity Decoded is your roadmap. The “seven keys” cost nothing, except your time and commitment. I offer you straightforward advice for achieving and maintaining good health over a long life. Following the “seven keys” will pay generous returns over the years ahead, and there’s a bonus: You’ll become a role model and inspiration to your children and grandchildren! Indeed, they can benefit the most by following the “7 keys” because, like saving for retirement, the benefits compound over time.
Should you decide to take a look and read the book, I would be most appreciative if you would leave a 2-3 sentence review on Amazon. Potential readers read those reviews and it impacts Amazon’s search algorithm. And tell your friends and colleagues; that’s the best possible book marketing. Many thanks.
