We are living longer, but our quality of life isn't necessarily any better. With equal measure of easy-to-read physiology, wit, and practicality, this book veers away from unhealthy conventional dietary and lifestyle wisdom and shows how to unite the mind, body, and spirit for long-term vitality. Derived from her extensive research for her book "Death By Supermarket", Nancy Deville provides a series of straightforward, no-nonsense guidelines that shows readers how to take control of their health. This comprehensive program addresses topics such as accelerated ageing and how to avoid it, how to properly care for and nourish the brain, managing insomnia, practising self-compassion, and the appropriate exercise levels for all ages. Whether a twenty-year-old who can't get out of bed without four cups of coffee and a cigarette, a depressed thirty-five-year-old with no sex drive, or someone free-falling into old age, this book shows readers how to redefine their sense of well-being in a toxic world. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
