Ageless Ageing

 
9780091784492: Ageless Ageing

Offers a lifestyle that will prevent premature ageing, prolong vitality and good looks, and encourage longevity. Combining traditionally accepted medical therapies with natural remedies, this book first asks the reader to take stock of how he/she looks and feels. It then helps map out a personal de-ageing plan which includes lean nutrition, hydrotherapy, the use of natural herbs and roots and natural hormone therapy. A complete body maintenance programme also shows how to keep skin smooth, muscles trim and arteries cholesterol-free. Although none of us can win the ultimate battle against age, the advice found in this book will show the reader the way to "dying young late in life".

From Publishers Weekly:

Inspired by her own developing wrinkles, Kenton (The Joy of Beauty, etc.), a health-and-beauty editor in England, investigates ways to prevent premature aging, but her entertaining prescription offers more old hype than new help. Her suggestions include megadoses of vitamins and minerals; the wonders of bee pollen, ginseng and fasting; and a smattering of ideas for improving diet, exercise and health habits. She presents a popular update of current medical researchknowledge about the immune system and the biological dangers of oxygen molecules called "free radicals," textbook-style illustrations of the brain, connective tissue, a typical human cell, the carbon cycle of life, etc.but she uncritically utilizes the research to validate unproven and possibly dangerous therapies, or to provide quasi-scientific explanations for some questionable anti-aging formulas.

From Library Journal:

Kenton thinks people can live longer, healthier lives if they follow a regimen based upon the natural healing theories and biomedical research findings she sets forth. But her end notes, though extensive, are not clearly linked to the sometimes extravagant claims in the text, placing the book's medical credibility in question. Furthermore, Kenton's tedious prose style lacks the appeal of that of Linda Clark, Adele Davis, and other popularizers of the genre. Most libraries can pass this one up.
