Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Null, a well-known spokesperson for natural health and aging (Gary Null's Ultimate Anti-Aging Program), offers another volume on how to deal with the physical effects of aging. According to the author's research, illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and degenerative brain conditions are, in part, caused by damage inflicted by free radicals-unstable molecules that impair cells. The bodies' defenses against free radicals are antioxidants that can neutralize the free radicals' effect. In order to lessen the number of free radicals, Null believes it is necessary to drink pure water, exercise properly, follow a power aging diet and consume a variety of antioxidant vitamins, herbs and minerals that should boost the immune system. Null's exhortations to detoxify the body will sound familiar to devotees, but others may find his program overly stringent and too detailed. The cardiovascular protocol, for example, is quite complex. His diet program (he calls it the non-diet diet) is similar to what he has been recommending for years: strictly avoid red meat, caffeine, sugar, dairy, alcoholic beverages and wheat products. The mainly vegetarian meals (menus are included) that he advocates should be composed of organic products.

'Power Aging' presents clear, ready-to-use facts.
What I have found about anything that Dr. Gary Null writes is that it always gets right to the heart of what you need to know, to learn, and to understand, but its always written in an engaging, clear, lay-level, and respectful way. So you really get the message as a reader that this author has your health and wellbeing at heart, kind of like a 'nutritional best friend', guiding us through with a roadmap on our road to wellness. Not only that, but he is also careful to present to the reader all the facts you'd need to know that would break down those popular misconceptions that we are exposed to about such modern dietary hazards as sugar, that we'd otherwise take for granted.
'Power Aging' is no exception. Its a solid book, loaded with facts and details, with easy step-by-step advice. And given the importance of its information the book is exceptional value for money. I am an average layperson in nutrition, but reading 'Power Aging' I have come away with a far greater comprehension of exactly what is necessary to keep my body rejuvenated than with anything else I've picked up and read. I strongly recommend this book.

This is another excellent book from celebrated health and nutrition expert Gary Null. In this book, Dr. Null distills the latest research on diet, exercise and nutritional approaches to health. Based on scientific studies published in peer-reviewed journals, the information in this book will directly help readers to live longer, more vital lives. And Dr. Null has a terrific ability to simplify the jargon, and communicate the most recent scientific findings about diet and exercise in a no-nonsense and meaningful way. There is no mystery to living a healthier and more active life. Certainly, healthy eating habits, good nutrition, and regular exercise are important factors. Here, however, Null also explains that good nutrition means eliminating animal foods, caffeine, sugar, dairy, wheat, hormones and antibiotics from our diets. Also important, may be groundbreaking nutrients such as Co-enzyme Q10, Trimethylglicine (TMG), and S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe). Null describes the revolution in nutritional research, and demonstrates that there certainly are safe, effective, less expensive, and superior natural alternatives to man-made pharmaceuticals.
The book also deals specifically with alternative approaches to heart disease, cancer, the aging brain, and anti-aging in general. There is no reason for us to feel old or age prematurely. And with Gary Null's Power Aging, we can make proactive choices to stay active and youthful for longer periods than ever before. You will not want to miss out on the critically important information contained in this book from Gary Null.

Format: Hardcover
Gary pulls together most of the collective wisdom from alternative medicine and puts it all in one powerful book. It is an easy read, mostly a compilation of applied common sense.
It is a good book for traditional practitioners to read in order to better understand their patients who have researched alternative medicine - and to open their minds to ideas other than those pushed by drug manufacturers. Thankfully, many physicians are starting to hear the call of patients who want to be treated in a holistic manner.
The reader should recognize that the information in the book is sometimes based on small studies and should apply their own "common sense" in carrying out what Gary proposes. All the same, a reasonably sharp mind will agree intuitively with 99% of the dietary recommendations (avoid meats, sugars, milk, artifical ingredients, and synthetic drugs unless natural approaches have failed).
The world of complementary medicine contains a wide spectrum, consisting of rational, caring people who want to share their knowledge with the world. Sadly, some others only want to make a quick buck with one-shot quack remedies. Gary Null is in the former category, and this fact comes through in his writings.
