Dr. Andrew Weil's Healthy Aging

What would it be like to grow old in a culture that values aging? What is an anti-inflammatory diet and why is it beneficial? What part of us never ages? What is our most important legacy?

In a new public television special, integrative medicine expert and bestselling author Dr. Andrew Weil takes on the subject of aging with unflinching honesty and offers uplifting advice based on his scientific studies and personal observations. With the authoritative but warm style that has made him America's best-known doctor, he urges us to reject the prevailing notion that aging is an evil to be fought off with magic elixirs and invasive procedures. Rather, Dr. Weil emphasizes the rewards of growing older and offers practical steps for remaining healthy in mind and spirit so we can enjoy it. He explains the science behind the best approach to diet and exercise as well as how to get the most beneficial sleep, maintain emotional well-being, keep your memory sharp, and think about the emotional legacy you want to leave behind.
