In each of his widely acclaimed, bestselling books, Dr. Andrew Weil has been an authoritative and companionable guide through a uniquely effective combination of traditional and nontraditional approaches to health and healthy living. Now he gives us a book about aging that is unlike any other. Drawing on the new science of biogerontology (the biology of aging) as well as on the secrets of healthy longevity—diet, activity, and attitude — Dr. Weil explains that there are a myriad of things we can do to keep our bodies and minds in good working order through all phases of life. Hugely informative, practical, and uplifting, Healthy Aging is infused with the engaging candor and common sense that have made Dr. Weil our most trusted source on healthy living.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Eldra | 2/14/2014

    " I wonder how much healthier a nation we'd have if even half the population read this book BEFORE they turned forty? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Judy Knight | 2/12/2014

    " This is a book recommended by my phisician. I finally have an understanding of the Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats in our diets. The chemistry is a little heavy but Dr. Weil tries to keep his topics gaged to the average reader; he promotes an anti-inflamatory approach to eating. He definitely has a great approach to aging--not the normal anti-aging search so popular in our society. This book would be helpful for anyone to read. "

    " i so trust this man's thinking and medical perspective. highly recommended. take the guess work out of aging and simply read this book; go and do what he says. it's reliable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Elaine | 1/30/2014

    " Enjoyed the combination of science and woo-woo. My favorite concept: "compressed morbidity," meaning a shortened period of time taken up by one's slide toward death. Weil says that, rather than a longer life, is a demonstrably achievable goal. "
