Nobody wants to get old. And why would they? The aging process eventually affects every one of our body systems - from mental function and sexual performance to physical appearance ability and strength. But chronological age has little to do with a person's biological age. Some people are old at fifty while others are still sharp and spry at ninety. Today's scientists know quite a bit about what causes a person to grow old.

As a result the human life span can be significantly increased while maintaining or even improving the quality of life! This contemporary approach to aging - known as anti-aging medicine - is a clinical specialty practised by more than 30000 physicians worldwide. It applies advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection prevention treatment and reversal of age-related dysfunction disorders and diseases. In the near future we can all look forward to a future of boundless health and vitality by implementing anti-aging approaches to help us feel look and perform better today. Readers can start by enjoying 121 WAYS TO LIVE 121 YEARS…AND MORE! - a handbook for living a long and healthy life.

ABS ON THE BALL A Pilates Approach to Building Superb Abdominals Colleen Craig
The exercise ball has long been recommended by doctors physical therapists and Olympic coaches for people suffering from back pain. Now Colleen Craig author of the best selling book and video Pilates on the Ball reveals why the exercise ball also is a tool that has no match for building superb abdominal strength. She presents a selection of over 50 innovative exercises including some of the key powerhouse-builders from the Pilate's Method all of which she has adapted specifically to the ball. Craig shows how traditional sit-ups and ab machines actually limit the degree to which abdominal muscles can be trained and can even aggravate lower back pain and neck tension. In contrast the very mobility of the ball targets sleepy muscles recruiting both deep as well as the superficial abdominal muscle fibres to enhance both performance and results. ABS ON THE BALL includes exercises for all ability levels. It shows how to breathe properly and how to activate the correct muscles during a workout-from the core exercises of the Waterfall Oblique Twist and Full Abdominal Curls to the more advance Full Rollup Shoulder Bridges and Backwards Crunch. The author also offers a 10- and a 20- minute workout designed not only to build the abdominal core but also to strengthen and train deep muscles in the back and hip in order to soothe lower back pain and increase overall body strength balance and co-ordination.

ACID ALKALINE FOOD GUIDE A Quick Reference to Foods and Their Effect on pH Levels Susan Brown & Larry Trivieri
Over the last five years there has been an explosion of best-selling acid/alkaline based diets. These have ranged from weight loss to diabetes management. While hundreds of thousands of people have gone on this diet that balances the pH level of your body they have had to put up with the limited food guides contained in each book. Now health experts Dr. Susan Brown and Larry Trivieri have created a complete resource for people wanting to widen their food choices. THE ACID/ALKALINE FOOD GUIDE offers dieters an easy-to-follow guide to the most common foods that influence your body's pH levels. The book begins by explaining what the acid/alkaline of your body has to do with the acid/alkaline influence of foods. It then explains how the pH of foods once eaten may change in your body eg. citric acid fruits once digested become alkaline. As complicated as this process is the authors provide the guidelines for the analysis of the foods covered in the book. This section is then followed by a listing of thousands of foods and their acid/alkaline ranges. Included are insets and groups that can help the reader better direct their food searches.
ACID DANGER Combating Acidosis Correctly Dr Wolfgang R Auer
Most people are familiar with the concept of a negative shift in pH balance (also called the acid/alkaline balance), but most are unaware of its relationship to other health problems and diseases. Acidosis--a condition in which the body is excessively acidic--is often at the root of many common health complaints. Acidosis can affect every level of the human body, including mental outlook, metabolism, organs, tissues, cells, molecules, atoms, and chromosomes. All too often, acidosis-related health problems are not recognized for what they are and are diagnosed as incurable or treated improperly. Many people are led to believe that they have no choice but to learn to live with the assorted complications of acidosis without knowing exactly what they're up against. As Dr. Wolfgang Auer explains, this condition and its consequences can be prevented and reversed. In "The Acid Danger," you'll find the basic ideas and facts about acidosis. You'll learn about the causes of this condition and steps you can take to cure or prevent the problem.
If you suspect that you have acidosis, reading this book can help you avoid misdiagnosis and unsuccessful treatment. It is up to you to take control of your health. "The Acid Danger" provides the tools, but you must use them to regain good health.
