9780771030505: The Healthy Boomer: A No-Nonsense Midlife Health Guide for Women and Men

In North America, some eighty-eight million boomers are facing the physical and personal challenges of midlife. But midlife can also be a time of tremendous vitality, confidence, and joy.

In this comprehensive guide, three experts in midlife health draw on interviews, the latest research, and their own expertise to help men, women, and couples on the journey from midlife turbulence to midlife mastery.

The Healthy Boomer provides easy-to-use decision-making tools, accurate information, and practical advice on such topics as:

The male and female menopause; how to make a decision about hormone replacement therapy; alternative health care; preventing heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis; prostate health and impotence; healthy relationships and great sex in midlife; anti-aging techniques; weight control, exercise, and healthy eating; the importance of spiritual well-being; handling midlife stress; what to do if you can't remember names any more.

For the many North American boomers who are experiencing midlife challenges, The Healthy Boomer is required and reassuring reading.

From the Back Cover:

“At last I have found my ‘Dr. Spock’ for midlife. The Healthy Boomer answers a lot of questions I have about my health and that of my partner.”
–Mary Jane Sterne, age 53

“As a physician, erstwhile patient, and patient-to-be again in the future, I found this book enormously useful, practical, and trustworthy....I cannot recommend it highly enough.”
–Dr. James S. Grotstein, M.D., clinical professor of psychiatry, U.C.L.A. School of Medicine, Los Angeles, and training and supervision analyst, Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society & Institute

“The generation born between 1946 and 1964, whose motto was ‘Never trust anyone over thirty,’ is suddenly asking questions about hormones, hair loss, heart disease, and what to do with the rest of their lives. The Healthy Boomer has the answers.”
–Gerald Dafoe, Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Public Health Association
