Description

From Publishers Weekly

Cherniske, the author of The DHEA Breakthrough, offers another self-help guide to the fountain of youth. As humans age, their anabolic metabolism (the ability to rebuild and repair tissues) decreases as catabolic metabolism (the breakdown and degeneration of tissues) increases. Cherniske posits that it is possible, through the adaptation of mind and body techniques, for an older person to reverse this process and become biologically younger. Although he promises a simple plan, the overwritten and highly detailed text may be discouraging to those looking for a clearer outline to follow. Cherniske recommends a sensible dietary program based on increased consumption of unrefined food, limiting meats and relying heavily on fruits and vegetables. He stresses the importance of moderate but consistent exercise and includes a number of stress-reduction strategies. Cherniske’s metabolic plan also includes taking nutritional supplements such as DHEA and a wide variety of antioxidants that, according to the author, are based on the latest research in the anti-aging field. He advocates a complicated system, individualized by age, of self-checks, medical tests and the use of supplements that he claims will slow the aging process.
