How You Can Slow the Ageing Process and Stay Healthy for Life

By Dr Duncan Carmichael

Younger for Longer shares the author's detailed knowledge of hormones, toxins, nutrition, stress and other factors to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date and medically rigorous description of health, ageing and the human body. He reveals practical steps to slow the ageing process - in short, how to stay younger for longer.

'Revelatory and accessible' Sunday Post

'Be good to yourself . . . [Younger for Longer] features wisdom on nutrition, sleep, mood regulation and, most importantly, hormonal health for men and women.'
Scotsman

'Younger for Longer tells you exactly what you need in order to live an extended healthy life. It's very 80/20 and one of the best books I've read in ages.'
Richard Koch, author of million-seller The 80/20 Principle

The goal of this book is to show readers how to live a healthy life free from the debilitations of ageing, helping them to stay mentally alert and physically active, and making sure they get the most out of all of their years.

That means aiming for optimal health. However, focusing on one factor alone will not get them there. Our sleep, our mood, what we eat, our detoxification system and our hormones are just some of the factors that interact in amazing ways to make us who we are; they are also at the very heart of the aging process.

This book shows how these different strands combine in ways that can be positive or negative - and explains why this interaction depends far more on the lifestyle we choose than on the genes we inherit. In that way it gives the reader a unique and comprehensive understanding of their body and tells them how, with this knowledge, they can maximize their health.

The topics range from nutrition, toxins, men's health and women's health to understanding why our skin, brain and liver age - and how to undo the damage and stave off ageing. But the book's main focus underlying all of this is hormones: the chemicals that tell different parts of our body what to do. Our hormone levels vary throughout our life, but if they are supported correctly they can keep us youthful and vital into our final years.

Finding health, then, is not about seven ways to detox or the five best vitamins. The body is far more complex than that and, in an approach aimed specifically at the layperson, Younger for Longer traces the exciting path of how the body works to help the reader create the best person they can be for the rest of their life.

Biographical Notes

Dr Duncan Carmichael is a medical doctor with 25 years of experience in the profession. He is a regular speaker and lecturer at conferences on aesthetic and anti-aging medicine in his home country and abroad, and has written numerous articles on healthy aging.

He qualified in South Africa then trained further in Europe where he studied nutrition, hormone balancing and aesthetic medicine.

Frustrated with the medical world's focus on treating illness rather than on promoting health, his passion has long been health medicine. He founded and runs the Institute of Healthy Aging in Cape Town, South Africa and another in Dorset in the United Kingdom.

Younger for Longer is a culmination of his 25-year quest, and is Dr Carmichael's first book. His wide range of training combined with his clinical expertise makes him uniquely placed to write this book and share what he has learned about longevity and health.

Is Butter a Carb?

Rosie Saunt, Helen West
Authors:
Rosie Saunt, Helen West

This book will empower you to make healthy, sustainable choices, based on facts, not fads. Registered dieticians and qualified nutritionists Rosie Saunt and Helen West are the founders of The Rooted Project, set up to translate the latest research direct to your plate, and make evidence-based nutrition accessible and engaging. In this book, they explore everything from the danger of anecdotal evidence and unsubstantiated 'facts' about food to the real science behind the nutrients we consume every day. They explain why there's nothing to be feared from fat or carbs, or - for the vast majority of us - the much-maligned gluten, as well as the latest research into the links between diet and our DNA. They probe the murky depths of the diet industry, look at the emerging science of the connection between food and mood, and examine how to eat with allergies and intolerances. This book is both a reference guide and a narrative to relish: it debunks the myths that dominate the food and wellness industry and offers the right tools and knowledge to allow readers to take control of their own health. Evidence-based, body positive and practical, Is Butter a Carb? is the modern must-have nutrition book for everybody interested in food, health and pop science.

How to Feel Better

Frances Goodhart, Lucy Atkins
Authors:
Frances Goodhart, Lucy Atkins

HIGHLY COMMENDED (POPULAR MEDICINE) AT THE BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION'S BOOK AWARDS 2014In days gone by, people understood that a knock to your health takes its toll on your emotions, your relationships, your morale, your 'spirit'. But these days, we think that if the doctor has waved you off, then you are 'better'. We neglect what scientific studies show is a vital element of recovery: the emotional side of getting better. As a result, many of us struggle with hidden issues such as depression, stress and anxiety long after a health crisis. This new book, from the authors of The Cancer Survivor's Companion (highly commended by the BMA and winner of the Guild of Health Writers' Best Health Book 2012) centres on the crucial, research-based (but widely overlooked) truth that 'getting better' is not just about the body - emotions play a huge part. Often, a person's emotional state is the one thing stopping them from a full recovery.Contents include: Why getting better takes time; why relaxation and exercise are both vital; how to build your confidence and tackle low mood and depression; how to eat for recovery; how to deal with medical advice and communicate well with your doctor; how to keep family life and relationships on track and much more. There are also case histories to inspire readers as well as fascinating snippets from times gone by which help to make this an entertaining as well as a highly practical, inspiring read.

Trigger Point Therapy Workbook

Clair Davies
Authors:
Clair Davies

Trigger point therapy is one of the fastest-growing and most effective pain therapies in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists are all beginning to use this technique to relieve patients' formerly undiagnosable muscle and joint pain, both conditions that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits.This book addresses the problem of myofascial trigger points-tiny contraction knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. Restricted circulation and lack of oxygen in these points cause referred pain. Massage of the trigger is the safest, most natural, and most effective form of pain therapy. Trigger points create pain throughout the body in predictable patterns characteristic to each muscle, producing discomfort ranging from mild to severe. Trigger point massage increases circulation and oxygenation in the area and often produces instant relief.The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, Third Edition, has made a huge impact among health professionals and the public alike, becoming an overnight classic in the field of pain relief. This edition includes a new chapter by the now deceased author, Clair Davies' daughter, Amber Davies, who is passionate about continuing her father's legacy. The new edition also includes postural assessments and muscle tests, an illustrated index of symptoms, and clinical technique drawings and descriptions to assist both practitioners and regular readers in assessing and treating trigger points.
