Synopsis

Many men are entering middle age overweight and out of shape, with increasing sugar intolerance (pre-diabetes), hypertension, low energy and drive, and falling libido. Men have a choice to make: continue their current lifestyle with those extra pounds and decreased energy or choose to reinvent themselves—to become a “WellMan” full of renewed energy and passion, with a greater sense of wellbeing. The key to successful aging is the control of hidden or “silent” inflammation. Some inflammation is beneficial, serving to immobilize an area of injury as the immune system responds. But silent inflammation has a more insidious nature—it’s a chronic, systemic inflammation that goes on inside the body year after year. Researchers now recognize that silent inflammation is responsible for most chronic diseases, including heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer. In fact, it is now understood as the primary cause of aging itself. The powerful integral health program outlined in WellMan provides a comprehensive way of controlling silent inflammation so that each man can optimize his health. This book includes: Diet and nutritional advice for reducing inflammation Advice on detoxifying the body Natural hormone replacement for renewed vigor Mind-body therapies for reducing stress Exercise tips to feel younger The program in WellMan puts men back on top of their game, allowing them to enjoy a longer life with greater vitality, passion, and meaning.
 

About John Anderson

See more books from this Author
John Andeson, chief film critic for New York Newsday, attended his ninth Sundance in 1999, but this time he did more than screen films and leap for tables at overbooked restaurants. He interviewed performers and filmmakers of all kinds, including top prize winners, but also uncovered the effect of all this ballyhoo on the indie film scene--and on the bemused Park City locals. Alongside the thoughts of Diane Lane, Steve Buscemi, Mike Figgis and other distinguished film people are conversations with festival volunteers, bus drivers, policemen, shopkeepers, and more. Together, they form the most candid, most fascinating, most hilarious, and most human-sized coverage of the Sundance Film Festival ever achieved. Join John Anderson as he goes...Sundancing. David Morgan is the author of Monty Python Speaks! (Spike, 1999) and editor of Sundancing (Spike, 2000). He has written on film production and media issues for a variety of publications. Mr. Morgan lives in New York City.
