In this remarkable book, Dr. Zorba Paster -- host of the NPR show On Your Health -- takes a detour from the traditional negative, abstinence-from-everything approach that addresses only physical factors. Instead, Dr. Paster introduces us to the five "spheres of wellness" that encompass all aspects of life: the physical, of course, but also the mental, social, spiritual, and material spheres. He reveals well-documented research that indicates that you must address all of these areas, not just the physical, to achieve your optimal longevity -- and also your greatest enjoyment of that longevity.
Within each sphere, Dr. Paster pinpoints the most threatening busters -- those aspects that will, sooner or later, kill you. And for each buster, he recommends the most advantageous boosters -- habits that will counteract the busters and prolong your life.
Many of those needs will come as a complete surprise. Even the most diet-conscious athlete may be ignoring all the other spheres: with a defeatist attitude that doesn't promote mental health; with limited, distant social relationships; with no spiritual life; or with an unsatisfying, low-paying job or by living in a dangerous neighborhood. He may not even wear a seatbelt in a car or a helmet on a bike. So while he's less likely to die of lung cancer or a heart attack, he may be at very high risk for many other fatal occurrences -- the sum of which has a much greater chance of killing anybody.
To tailor this remarkable booster-and-buster system to you, The Longevity Code includes in-depth exercises to isolate your most urgent needs. And once you've identified the busters you must overcome, you can clip out the booster cards -- summaries of each of the seventy-six boosters -- to help you focus on your personal prescription for living a longer, sweeter life.
