Having a great plan is half your job done. And that’s what this book gives you. A plan that is simple to understand and easy to execute, especially if you haven’t read much about health and medicine before. It’s a book that can be read by someone at any age, because even though some of the exercise and diet tips mentioned are exclusively for the elderly, a significant part of the book has advice for everyone. It can help us live healthy so that ageing ceases to be a concern.

Patients are often unaware of whether the symptoms they are experiencing are due to the normal ageing process or the signs of some disease. The section on physical and emotional changes of ageing puts an end to this confusion, and does so in a concise manner. A wide range of topics such as how to use supplements wisely, eating right for your age and how to develop a good relationship with your doctor have been covered. The chapter ‘challenge your body’ provides tips on workouts, stretches [along with illustrations] and core training ideas.

The quick guide at the end of the book is handy too. It has a list of the common diseases that are encountered in old age, with their symptoms and treatment options. The book also offers home remedies for treating some of these conditions. The information shared in this book is something that we all have to equip ourselves with. So if you haven’t done that yet, here’s your chance.
