From the Author
I wrote this book to be Healthy Aging 101. I want it to allow the reader to step back from the barrage of health and medical claims out there, and with the rational, core criteria provided in this book, be able to decide what they need to do to be truly healthy and age in a better way. This book is for those who want to thrive but are unsure of how to change and what changes to make to stay vibrant as they age.
It's also a call to action for each one of us, for our organizations, towns, cities, and very society, to incorporate the spectacular new knowledge about how to age successfully into our policies in order to realize the potential of each one of us to live a long vital life and limit the time we're sick and impaired. It's a call to join a movement to make aging a fulfilling and rewarding adventure.
Lastly, I wanted this book to be readable and a comfort to all who want to be all they can be.
Be well and flourish!
