I've always been fascinated and intrigued by Suzanne Somers' books. While definitely controversial, you have to hand it to Suzanne for pushing the envelope when it comes to aging, beauty, and health. Like in her previous books, Suzanne compiles the absolute newest medical treatments and theories to challenge the current dogma about aging and medicine. Her ideas, though supported by various experts (including many highly qualified physicians), are no doubt controversial and might even be considered dangerous by some. But as a real, practicing physician, I would argue that we need Suzanne Somers. In this book she encourages, even pushes, the medical community to rethink its current stances on many common diseases. Testosterone for prostate cancer? Vitamin K supplements to prevent heart attacks? Injections of White Blood Cells to prevent cancer? She even reveals some her own most intimate medical secrets, including being one of the first women in the United States to undergo an experimental stem cell procedure for reconstructing her breast that was removed for breast cancer. She took it upon herself to obtain the necessary FDA clearance and flew a Japanese surgeon to the State to perform the surgery. Talk about being driven! The conversations and questions that Suzanne poses in her book are necessary and interesting. I commend her on doing her due diligence in researching the arena of aging and disease. It is truly a fascinating read for everyone. Before considering any of these treatments, though, it is extremely important to discuss them with your physician. Whether one believes in the secrets she espouses in this book or not, we can all agree that Suzanne looks amazing. Can you believe she's in her 60's? A nice companion for this book is Dr. Anthony Youn's "In Stitches". It was my favorite book of last year. Written by a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Youn's book reveals the secrets to becoming a doctor, focusing on his time in medical school. Did you know that doctors still use leeches? Why you should avoid the hospital in July? This book is fun, interesting, and will open your eyes about your physician. You'll never look at doctors the same way again! Another great read is Dr. Jennifer Ashton's Your Body Beautiful: Clockstopping Secrets to Staying Healthy, Strong, and Sexy in Your 30s, 40s, and Beyond . It's written by an OB-Gyn and has lots of tips that I give to my own patients for staying healthy and looking great as Father Time continues on. Also highly recommended.
