The Youth Prescription: An Anti-Aging Sourcebook is a must read for anyone seeking improved wellness through natural approaches based in alternative medicine. Drawing on the latest research from around the world, Dr. Geissel guides the reader through a series of anti-aging strategies and cutting edge therapies for turning back the clock. Inspired by her own fight for wellness against the ravages of Lyme disease, the author approaches anti-aging using alternative therapies backed by hard science.

This book cuts through the hype of the supplement industry, telling you which supplements have withstood the tests of time and science. The Youth Prescription reveals the master anti-aging supplement, a naturally occurring superfood that contains the power to revitalize your health, boost your wellnesss, and transform how you look, think, and feel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good health on the inside creates a beautiful outside! 27 juin 2014
Par Barbara Land - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I've just finished reading The Youth Prescription: An Anti-Aging Sourcebook, by Dr. Laura Flynn Geissel, and I'm very pleased to have been given the opportunity to review it.

Dr. Geissel holds a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a PhD in educational psychology. Having spent her career in the educational arena, she is uniquely qualified to have written this book.

When faced with serious health challenges of her own, the author embarked on a mission to find out how to become well. She succeeded, and now presents her findings in a book that will educate us all in the ways in which we can optimize our health and as a consequence, look and feel years younger. The novel substances that her extensive research uncovered will be new to many, but in reality they are ancient things that have been here the whole time, evolving along with the rest of us for millions of years. It is for this reason that they are so aptly suited to enhance our health and well-being, especially in these challenging times when our bodies are continuously bombarded with pollution, poisons and processed food.

While this is definitely a work worthy of academia, it is presented as a gift to all of us, crafted with an infinite amount of care. The workings of the physical body can be exceedingly complicated, but the author explains the various processes with an easy going manner (i.e., you don’t have to have a degree in biology to understand what’s going on) and the cartoons throughout the text serve to get the point across in ways that are both thoughtful and amusing.

I recommend this book to everyone, without reservation.

*I received a free copy of this book in order to give a fair and honest non-reciprocal review*

I received this ebook for my consideration of a review, and I am glad that I had this opportunity. When I first started reading it, I was thinking that I might just be reading another anti-aging book, but the first chapter got me intrigued and I couldn't put it down. Not only does the author tell you about the latest on anti-aging food, supplements and lotions, but she gives her own user benefits and down to earth examples to illustrate what she is telling you in scientific terms. It is very easy to read, and after you read through the book, to the end, you will be much wiser on why your body ages, how you can prevent it to a degree, and feel better medically and emotionally. She states facts, and I researched them just to confirm what she has written. There really is nothing that I would say that was negative about the book, and I would recommend this to anyone who really wants to know what is going on in the body and wants to be healthy and feel better.

I always find it a bit hard to give a review on a Self-Help book. I tend to feel as though the critique one can offer is very limited, and that it boils down to two thing;

1) Readability

2) How much did it actually help.

With those two things in mind I’d like to offer my short review and concise thoughts.


As it pertains to this subject, this book is very well written and fairly easy to understand if you don’t mind the occasional veering off into some extended bouts of scientific talk. While the books is mostly entertaining and understandable, there are certain intervals where the author (rather intentional or unintentional) deviates into long periods of scientific facts and figures. Although, I can understand why this happens–she IS a doctor, after all–I don’t necessarily believe that it makes the read very practical in that aspect as many of the readers that might pick this book up might not fully understand the ins and outs of science and how it reflects on the human body. Moreover, there might be people that are simply not interested in it.

I believe that there are some things, in the end, that could have gotten shaved out of the book as a whole.

Amount of viable help:

This part is going to get a little bit personal for me.

I believe, personally, that this book IS INDEED very helpful. There is a surplus of information that can truly be beneficial to the reader looking for a practical and sensible way of maintaining healthy and youthful.

Here is what I mean…

Independently, I, tend to be told that I look very young for my age. However, privately, I do have some health issues that I wish I had an efficient and easy way to treat. So, while on the surface I don’t necessarily look my age, inside I feel like I’m a rotting corpse *giggling*.

I say that to say this; when I first opened this book I thought that it was going to be yet another one of those preachy, self-help, weight loss, use this face cream and not the other, spend a million dollars to look like J-Lo, do what I say, how I say type of books. The ones that tell you it’s their way, no high way option. The sort that want to inundate you with exercise regiments, menu schedules, nutritional supplements, the best Hollywood plastic surgeons, the newest world wide fad, type of mumbo jumbo that simply put, infuriates me. And, I must admit, at first glance (per the first few chapters) I truly thought it was headed in that direction.

THEN, I was thrown a curve ball. I was introduced to Colostrum, which I am now calling “the miracle supplement”. I learned SO MUCH that I’d never been taught before about this natural nutritional subsidizer that I was left with a lasting impression. Needless to say that I am going to get it for myself.

Along with what I learned about Colostrum and all its benefits, I also got some nifty smoothie recipes–Lord, knows I love me some smoothies. And a lots of additional information that I found very helpful in making my ultimate decision about starting a Colostrum regiment for myself.

Also, there is a nifty glossary at the back to help those who a “medical terminology impaired”, and I found it pretty helpful in defining some things that I was questioning.

In the end, I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn how to take care of themselves in a simpler fashion that doesn’t include killing yourself.

Note: The paperback version was submitted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I tend to approach non-fiction, in this case, self-help, slightly differently than I do fiction books. When I read a self-help book it is important that there is a balance of the following things:

~Experiences or examples to back up the information
~Reading comprehension

I also look for:
~Proper citing of references
~Overall syntax

In my paperback copy of this work, I did not find any glaring errors in overall syntax. This made for a very pleasing read free of having to stop to red ink anything.

The author did an outstanding job of properly citing references so if the reader needs to discover more information, he/she can definitely do so.

The information was abundant, citing all the different benefits to the human body. It was delivered in a straightforward manner that was not only fairly easy to understand but got me excited about the alternate approaches to health offered. I learned about some new products and practices that I’m going to apply to my own life, which is definitely a plus.

I appreciated how the author tied in her own experiences with Lyme disease to demonstrate how this different approach to medicine has served of great benefit. It gives other people who suffer from chronic diseases as well as myself different ways to take charge of our health rather than being just a number in a busy doctor’s office.

The only drawbacks to this work I perceive are as follows:

~At times, the author got caught up in scientific/experimental tirades and took a bit too long to circle back to the central point.
~I would have liked to have seen more illustrations. I thought they provided extra emphasis to some of the main ideas she wanted the book to achieve.

Verdict: 4 Stars

If you are not afraid to try a different way to addressing your ailments or want a brand new way of thinking about aging, then The Youth Prescription: An Anti-Aging Sourcebook is definitely worth looking at.

Par Mr. Kevin P. Futers - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a book that I would normally read. The author herself admitted that it is aimed at a female readership, so I have been as objective as possible in rating it.
This book is written by a educational psychologist who happens to have had an unfortunate health incident that has meant that she has used a product which as well as helping with her health, has also impressed her in other ways. In terms of credibility she is writing for the most part out of her field, although her academic presentation of facts and reviews of scientific papers are admirable both for being thorough and for referencing. If you wanted to you could follow up any of the claims made in the book and you have access to scientific journals, then you could do so.
The topic area is health and beauty, specifically how to make changes to your diet and habits in order to defy the signs of aging. It just about avoids the status of an extended infomercial by not recommending specific products. One ingredient gets a lot of coverage and it is regularly described as "magical" or "wonderful" which seems a little emotive and against the otherwise scholarly tone of the book. I was impressed enough with the claims for this substance that I discussed it with my wife who suffers from Lupus. She says she will discuss it with her Rheumatologist at her next appointment. I will probably have to remind her.
Generally speaking, this only issue I have with the order of the chapters is that she plays her ace very early. I understand why she has done this: it helps to know what she is recommending because it continues to have applications in later chapters. It would cast a shadow over some of the other beneficial strategies that she puts forward if the last chapter gave the impression that this one factor was greater than all of the others, as she is also advocation a holistic approach to medicine which benefits from multiple complementary approaches to health.
The language of the book is both scholarly and approachable. The use of humour and the sporadic cartoons are welcome rather than forced and although there are a few literals in the text, they are few and far between. At times I found myself adrift in scientific discussions of biological processes but there was nothing that was too complex, and I last did Biology in 1984! It could daunt the general reader however.
There is no presentation of studies that are contra-indicative of the beneficial effects of the treatments and strategies suggested in the book, although I am sure that they exist. Although complementary medicine does have much to commend it, it can blur into quackery at the less honest end of the spectrum. The fact that the text relies on medical and scientific papers for validation rather than testimonials gives the book a lot of plus points, but there should still be a recognition that their may be evidence to the contrary.
The book offers a number of health and lifestyle suggestions based on the scientific findings and the author's own experiences, and nothing there is suggestive of anything that would be in any way harmful if her cautions are followed. I went onto the NHS website and could find absolutely nothing which suggests that mainstream British health practices have taken the main factor advised in the book at all seriously, but hopefully I will find out more when my wife sees her Rheumatologist.
One final comment is that it is worth taking a look at the author's photograph at the back of the book. Normally the author's photo tells you very little about what you are reading, but here it is make or break territory. If that photograph isn't a commendation of the effectiveness of the course of action recommended, then I don't know what is!
I received a free copy of this book to review without expectation of a favourable review.
