Présentation de l'éditeur

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. Using a conversational and comedic style, Dr. Geissel explains complex ideas including the free radical theory of aging, sources of inflammation, hidden effects of heavy metal accumulation, leaky gut syndrome, health risks of high-dose antioxidants, and the best anti-aging breakthroughs from the last decade. 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

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*

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Anti-aging book of all books! 29 mai 2014
Par Ron Dean - Publié sur

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.

Alot of medical jargon that is boring and it want you to try stuff that would cost a fortune and is very unrealistic to everyday people like me!

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.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 An intelligent and reasonable weapon against the aging process 15 octobre 2014
Par J.C. Wing - Publié sur
Although I am a supporter of self-help books and have, on countless occasions, borrowed or purchased many of them on many various subjects, I most likely would not have chosen to read a book on anti-aging. This is where I can easily admit that, had I not been asked to review her book, I would have missed out on Laura Flynn Geissel’s little gem. I feel that her book gave a positive view point on something everyone goes through but has very little control over, and I’m glad I didn’t miss it.

Geissel is well educated, holding a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a PhD in educational psychology. After dealing with some personal health issues, she decided to use her educational background and the results of meticulous research to write The Youth Prescription. While it is filled with medical and scientific terms that could be tiresome or uninteresting, Geissel manages to give her readers a wealth of information without weighing her pages down. She writes with a bit of humor and her text is relatable and engaging. She states that while everyone can benefit from the contents of her book, it is aimed at a more female readership. Being a woman myself, I could see that and appreciated it.

Geissel, while obviously very knowledgeable about that which she writes, is not difficult at all to relate to. The book is much the same as the author; intellectual but at the same time approachable.
