The empowering message from this book is that being in our 50s, 60s and 70s doesn’t automatically mean being old, frail and sick.
If we follow the advice from the 15 leading health experts who contributed chapters to this book, it’s possible to delay the ageing process and have a better quality of life in our later years. This also means reducing the chances of getting Dementia and some of the other unpleasant ailments that can affect older people.
The difference between this and other Health books is that it is written specifically for people who are over 50 and that it covers both our physical and emotional health.
It offers a practical, easy- to- read path to good health in our retirement years.
