I've always been fascinated and intrigued by Suzanne Somers' books. While definitely controversial, you have to hand it to Suzanne for pushing the envelope when it comes to aging, beauty, and health. Like in her previous books, Suzanne compiles the absolute newest medical treatments and theories to challenge the current dogma about aging and medicine. Her ideas, though supported by various experts (including many highly qualified physicians), are no doubt controversial and might even be considered dangerous by some.
But as a real, practicing physician, I would argue that we need Suzanne Somers. In this book she encourages, even pushes, the medical community to rethink its current stances on many common diseases. Testosterone for prostate cancer? Vitamin K supplements to prevent heart attacks? Injections of White Blood Cells to prevent cancer? She even reveals some her own most intimate medical secrets, including being one of the first women in the United States to undergo an experimental stem cell procedure for reconstructing her breast that was removed for breast cancer. She took it upon herself to obtain the necessary FDA clearance and flew a Japanese surgeon to the State to perform the surgery. Talk about being driven!
The conversations and questions that Suzanne poses in her book are necessary and interesting. I commend her on doing her due diligence in researching the arena of aging and disease. It is truly a fascinating read for everyone. Before considering any of these treatments, though, it is extremely important to discuss them with your physician. Whether one believes in the secrets she espouses in this book or not, we can all agree that Suzanne looks amazing. Can you believe she's in her 60's?

A nice companion for this book is Dr.

We have to remember that Suzanne Summers has so much money at her disposal. The rest of us don't. Many of the things she writes about you can find on Dr. Hyman and Dr Mercola's websites, and we have to realize that she obviously has had botox; she is taking hormones, and hormones alone can keep you young. I do believe in vitamins, but vitamins alone won't give your face that kind of look - it is NOT natural. There is nothing wrong with botex as half the world uses it. The doctors that Suzanne Summers uses is are also super expensive, and the majority of gynecologists and endocrinologists will not automatically prescribe bioidentical hormones, because they will test you and say you are in the "normal" range for someone in menopause (but that is not the case). Beware if you have high blood pressure or heart and previous cancers. They just won't give it to you when, in fact, the hormones can actually reduce blood pressure and cholesterol. Many doctors are ignorant about this, and as I said, the ones that WiLL prescribe them will easily charge $1500-2000 for a first time visit. Then add on the hormone replacement and follow-up visits, and you are talking big bucks. If you want great skin, use old-fashioned olive oil or coconut oil, it keeps the skin young. Use tumeric spice on everything, take Co Q10, garlic, asthazanthin, omega 3's, l-carnitine, niacin and benecol chews (for cholesterol), vit D3 (be tested for your levels first), magnesium (key!) and if you have acid reflux take super bromelain and betaine hcl with pepsin. It does the same thing as prevacid, prilosec and other acid blockers without all the side effects. I did my own research and I'm my own advocate, and I believe that's what everyone must do - advocate for themselves.Read more ›

Writing is easy, and it's a fast read. I didn't care for the Q and A interview format in many chapters. Content was interesting but VERY expensive to implement; even her long list of supplements is both daunting and costly. While I don't disagree with author's info, guess I expected more that real people could use. You have to be very afraid of aging and have deep pockets to get the most of this book.

Whether you have read a thousand health-related books or this is your first, don't miss this one! I learned so much, and I have changed the way I look at nutrition and the way my body works. It doesn't matter if you can't afford to do all that Suzanne does, you can make changes that will affect how you feel immediately. Buying this book was the best thing I've done for myself all year. I highly recommend it!

This book has lots of great information. Having done hours of research on alternative cancer treatments when our son had cancer I found that Suzanne had much of what I had already found, PLUS more. She puts her reputation on the line to share with us. I'm sure the big cancer industry would like to silence her. Thank you so much Suzanne for sharing what you know to be true!

I've liked Suzanne Somers previous books, but this book was not her best one.
Basically, if you have money you can do many things to 'stop' aging, enhance your skin and your look, use the newest possible methods and doctors to help you in your health and aging problems.

Who has the financial resources to do all these things that the author has done? Not any middle class or low income person!

However, the book has plenty of interesting interviews with doctors and editors related to aging and cancer issues. The doctors interviewed in this book are: Michael Galitzer, Abraham Morgentaler, Prudence Hall,
Jonathan Wright,Andy Jurow, G. Gordon, D. Maharaj, D. Schmidt, S. Burzynski and
N. Gonzalez

The content of this book:
Introduction (a short one to tell the reader what the book includes and why the book is written, the motivation)
Part I: What aging looks like now - and in the future
Chapter 1: Making a plan, defining your endpoint
Chapter 2: What causes us to age?
Chapter 3: What the future looks like?
An Interview with Ray Kurzweil

Chapter 4: Advanced medicine - the new doctor you'll want to visit
