From the Author
This book answers questions and addresses concerns I've heard from patients and others regarding common medical problems, as well as how to live smarter. I deviated from my fiction novels and children's book series to write it and I'm happy that I did!
About the Author
A physician, speaker, and former chemist, Barbara Ebel's writing draws heavily from her experience as an anesthesiologist, her dealings with family court, and her interactions with people and places from around the world.
Since Ebel writes credible medicine into the background of her novels and her O.R. scenes shine, it's no wonder the first in her Dr. Danny Tilson Novels, Operation Neurosurgeon, was the top finalist for best selling medical mystery books in 2012. (Best Selling Books' blog announced on PR Buzz Press Release Wire, Chicago, IL). The ranking derives its roster of bestsellers from sources such as Amazon and Goodreads and uses readers' ratings, reviews and title sales for a blended score that creates each book's final rank.
In addition to her adult writing, she has illustrated and penned a children's book series called Chester the Chesapeake. The books developed after her philanthropic visits with her therapy dog, Chester. The dog continues to inspire adults and children alike. After publishing each Chester book, the question then is always, "when's the next one?"
Along with her husband and four pets, "Doctor Barbara" lives in a wildlife corridor in middle Tennessee.
Her novels are:
Operation Neurosurgeon (A Dr. Danny Tilson Novel)
Silent Fear: a Medical Mystery (A Dr. Danny Tilson Novel)
Collateral Circulation: a Medical Mystery (A Dr. Danny Tilson Novel)
Outcome, a Novel

I liked the title, so I bought Dr. Barbara's book, Younger Next Decade, hoping for some magical simple age undoing advice.
Thanks to Dr. Barbara, I know what telomeres are. And the analogy she used to teach it to me was perfect for a right brainer like me who sees what she is hearing or reading. While I was reading the first pages I began to get some hope that there might be a secret,easy magic way to undo my aging self, and make it young again.
Telomeres plays a part in aging she tells us and she tells it without making you rush to the dictionary of science. Her tell on the specifics of aging includes a logical promise that the future holds the answer to the actual undoing of the appearance of old age written on our bodies.
As any good doctor will, she gave me a new mantra. "Don't eat anything passed through a window and don't eat anything that wasn't available a hundred years ago." That was after she detailed the reasons why we age so fast after age 30, and I knew that her quote borrowed from Albert Einstein was true. "If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is not hope for it." The absurd idea is that researchers will one day find a way to bring youth back to your body. But for now Dr. Barbara Ebel shows us how we can do it ourselves, with food, without cigarettes, with spirit, mirth, intelligence, and a litany of other ways; mostly by caring for ourselves in this world of tainted foods, evironmentaly infused dangers and gluten saturated fast food purchased in a hurry by working mothers at drive thru windows. Entertaining and educational read.
I am past my fifties of Transitional years that she speaks of, but there was so much great information for me to use to improve my own life. It gave insightful ways of learning things I can do do help myself live longer and enjoy whatever stage of life I am in. It is a combination of practical advice, along with the medical basics to explain why we need to be making changes as we get older. But the changes are not intimidating or difficult to make. Just knowing the reason in medical terms helped me understand more and what changes I can make to improve the quality of my life.
Dr. Barbara writes with a vast personal knowledge and she lives her life true to form. She is a very intelligent and an extremely wise woman. We can all benefit from this wonderful, and informative book. It flows beautifully and never boring. No matter what stage of life we are in, we can all use improvements and Dr. Barbara not only explains what needs improving but how to it without, feeling overwhelmed. She provides us with simple and practical things we can do. And with Dr. Barbara's medical background she is able to explain the aging process in terms that allow us to see why preventive maintenance is necessary if we want to slow down the aging process. And not only live longer but have a good quality and productive life. The good news is, it is never to late to make positive changes in our life. She provides ways to improve the quality life, as well as, living a longer healthier life. It just makes you more aware of changes that will improve life that are easy and necessary if we want a longer and more productive life. It is the first book of this kind I have ever read and how to use preventive maintenance earlier in life to prepare for the later years. And I enjoyed reading it from this new perspective.
It has given me the motivation and insight to improve on what I can to enjoy the quality life we all hope for. It it is more about life enhancement, with great suggestions on why and how to improve whatever stage we may be in. You will feel refreshed rather than feeling guilty, as many of the self help books have done to me. It is a book of encouragement and hope and one that I truly recommend for all adults. The sooner we realize what is going on with our bodies and the earlier we can work to improve the quality, the easier our "Transitional Years" will be. So, it is a Must Read for everyone and I am sure you will be glad you read it.
Thanks, Dr. Barbara for another outstanding book that is truly a winner. Your talent as a writer is just as great as your mastery of the human body and your success as a great doctor. But, your love of your fellow man and always helping others, is the reason everything you do is a success. I am anxious to see what you will write next, and as always, I enjoy anything you write. I have enjoyed all of your great books and each one has been an inspiration to me. I am happy that I had the pleasure of meeting you on the Amazon Discussion Forum.

Dr. Ebel has a knack for interpreting the medical jargon so it's easily understood. A quick and easy read, and not just for middle-age women. If younger people followed her counsel, youth might last a whole lot longer. Thanks Doc!
