Best book on the market Jan 11, 2001
One of the most difficult dilemmas for a health-care provider is to convince patients that they need to make and sustain major changes in theif lifestyles to make maintain good health and delay or prevent major illnesses. This dilemma has been greatly facilitated by a new book titled LIVE 10 HEALTHY YEARS LONGER.The book reports results of a 40-year Adventist Health Study with over 27,000 participants who made simple adjustments in their lifestyle to help them live 10 or more years longer as compared to a controlled group. The book points to the adage that it is easier to prevent or delay illness than to treat it. The recommendations are simple, easy to apply, inexpensive, and apply generally to persons of any decade. I have recommended this book to my patients and have seen dramatic results in those persons sincerely desiring to take control of their lives in regard to good nutrition, exercise, stress management, etc. I recommend the book highly as a guidebook and reference book for any person or family wishing to take charge of their health. Health-care providers and lay persons in general will find this book an extremely useful resource for achieving and maintaining optimal health and a quality lifestyle.
A Helpful Guide to Improving Your Health Sep 23, 2000
I found Live 10 Healthy Years Longer to be a helpful guide to attacking the mountain of improving my health. My personal struggles include diabetes, obesity and aging. This book lists and discusses specific causes and solutions to many diseases, conditions and circumstances that lower our quality of life. From stress management and exercise to how to use food and drink to maximum benefit, this book covers all the bases.
Although I have studied nutrition and use of vitamin and herbal supplements extensively, I have not come across any other book that is both comprehensive and easy to understand and follow. Each chapter highlights key elements and charts for quick reference and also contains practical suggestions for implementing the material.
One of the things I enjoy most about the book is that it is not just a health manual. The authors speak in a warm and personal tone, revealing their own experiences with the principles they teach. They are both vegetarian and I don't plan to be. But they outline specific benefits to the various elements of their lifestyle so the reader can intelligently decide what parts they want to incorporate.
I would like to see a chart at the end of the book to summarize the numerous recommendations. Still, this is a book I will be reading and studying continuously as I stretch toward the goal of not just living longer, but living better.
At Last A Reality-Based Book About Health Sep 5, 2000
Live Ten Healthy Years Longer examines the principles behind healthy lifestyle habits proven to work. They bolster energy, help fight disease, and decrease the effects of aging. When applied long-term, they can even help you live longer. I like this book because it contains no pop-pysche diet-hype. It is a reality-based guide to healthy living. I trust what it says because its suggestions are based on well documented studies. I think so highly of it, I am sending a copy to my mother. I WANT to keep her around!
A Balanced Diet of Healthy Advice Aug 30, 2000
In this healthy approach to a healthy life, Kuzma and Murphey present facts as facts, trends as trends, and speculation as speculation, a simply stated smorgasbord of ideas, insights and information, without force feeding their personal beliefs on the reader. First on the menu is the appetizer, "How Long Would You Like to Live?" The book proceeds with well documented and verifiable entrees related to physical and mental health, then concludes with dessert, which includes scripture and Sabbath to feed the soul. This would make a great gift book for any adult and a stimulating study for adult reading groups, both church related and secular.
Fresh perspective on old subject Apr 27, 2000
This book gives a fresh, and refreshing, perspective on a very tired subject. How many weight-loss books have we been subjected to recently? Not to mention the many books on how to live longer, healthier, sexier--you name it. In one day recently I saw a new book that said the secret to healthy weight is no carbohydrates after 5 pm, and another new book that said just the opposite. Readers are left to wonder who is right. This book provides a balanced view of how to sort throught all the health claims, and make very simple adjustments to the way you live that can make a significant difference in your health. And, these suggestions are all backed up by scientifically valid studies by reputable sources--not just someone else selling something. The book is very readible, and a must read for anyone who considers the spiritual side of their life as important as what they eat and how much they exercise. Every church should consider teaching a course based on this book as a part of their educational outreach to their members and the community.
