Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Free radicals are molecules that leech electrons from other molecules; oxidation--burning or rusting, for example--involves such a process. A kind of biological oxidation is largely responsible for aging and many immunologic and degenerative diseases: smoking, eating fats and not exercising foster free radicals, while certain vitamins, called anti-oxidants, apparently neutralize them. How to make use of these facts to one's advantage, however, remains scientifically uncertain. The Kronhausens, retired psychologists, collaborate with medical researcher Demopoulos in advising the ingestion of large amounts of pure anti-oxidants (once called megavitamins). Their "formula" is a case of gross oversimplification: vitamins as panacea, all else as toxic. They overstate their case at great rambling length (cursorily discussing hypnosis and homelessness, en route); make irresponsible dietary recommendations (e.g., advising the elimination of salt from homecooked meals, which should then--incongruously--be salted to taste); and cite countless preliminary, inconclusive or contradictory studies (after dosing themselves with the natural aphrodisiac yohimbine, the authors report that they were "wittier than usual").

From Library Journal

According to the authors, the proper use of vitamins will help to combat the oxidation within the body, which causes the release of free radical compounds. Oxidation and free radicals are responsible for much of the "normal" aging process, as well as pathological conditions such as cancer, atherosclerosis, and diabetes. The authors have created a comprehensive lifestyle program which purports to keep the body functioning at optimum levels into its nineties and beyond. They outline a well-balanced diet, very high in fiber from a variety of sources, and almost no fat at all, that provides the recommended antioxidant vitamin regimen. While the regimen has not been endorsed by the medical establishment (high praise to some), the diet and exercise programs cannot do any harm. Sure to be popular with the same audience that made Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw's Life Extension: A Practical Scientific Approach ( LJ 6/15/82) a best seller; public libraries will want to buy accordingly.

Format: Paperback
First of all, I would like to state that I am by no means a health fanatic but, I simply don't know how people expect to live a healthy life without reading this book. Formula for Life is not only for people with life threatening illnesses, but for everyone. I'm eighteen years old and am incorporating the basics of this book into my life with ease. Eberhard and Phyllis Kronhausen give realistic suggestions that anyone can welcome into his/her life. Following their recommendations on eating and taking supplements, I find I have more energy and my immune system is stronger. Evidence that their theories actually work lie in the fact that their biological ages are ten years younger than their chronological ages! I recommend this book for people of all ages. It is a bible for those of us who want to live a better life.

Spend a day with Doctors Phyllis and Ebehard Kronhausen and you will find that this couple, now married 45 years, talks and acts forty years younger than their chronological ages of 71 and 85 respectively. In FORMULA FOR LIFE these internationally renown psychologists share with the public the nutritional regime which they personally use, and which they credit not only with their longevity, but also with the high quality of the physical and mental activity they are still able to enjoy. These two therapists to stars and celebrities around the world, (perhaps better known as the pioneering sexologists who started 50 years ago to educate the public about how to improve and enjoy the sexual side of their beings), long ago realized that a healthy body and healthy mind were necessary for a healthy sex life. To achieve this healthy body and healthy mind goal they read extensively and "experimented" on themselves with a wide variety of natural nutritional substances which were routinely absent from modern Western diets. The result of their research is their formula for overall wellness, which is described in FORMULA FOR LIFE. The Kronhausens do not promise miracles, but genuinely believe that the same healthful benefits they achieved can be shared by all those who try this dietary regime for themselves.

Of all the books I have read and used concerning matters of health, food and nutrition I find this book so fundamental, so thoughtfully written, so simply informative and direct that I use it's information as the basis for my daily protoccol of vitamins and minerals and follow it's advice assiduously. Bravo!

I recommend FORMULA FOR LIFE to my patients to help them adopt a more healthful lifestyle and get vital information on slowing down the aging process. That includes ways to prevent the aging of the skin, in which I, as a dermatologist, am particularly interested.

If you want to take the guesswork out of what nutritional plan to follow let Phyllis and Ebehard Kronhausen inform you in their book FORMULA FOR LIFE. What a relief to have a time tested nutritional program spelled out for you from this husband and wife team of nutritional experts. They researched and tested the health promoting foods and supplements from many different cultures and have proven their benefits by their own longetivity and excellent health. I have seen it for myself. It works!
