This is a head-to-toe guide to staying fit and healthy by combining the best of traditional and alternative medicine. Divided into numerous sections that deal with each "system" of the body - from cardiovascular and immune to muscular and skeletal - this work explains what can go wrong as one ages. It contains advice on how to anticipate, avert and deal with trouble, and there are explanations of a wide range of therapies, ranging from the benefits of garlic to the wonders of laser surgery.
