Dr. Bowden's website can be accessed here. Start your New Year right. Get to know Dr. Jonny Bowden, your heart will be glad you did. I particularly loved Dr. Bowden's Anti-Aging Action Plan on how to boost your immune system because most of the suggestions simply make for a better life all around: Learn to relax Learn to laugh at yourself Learn to listen My Opinion In A Nutshell: The book has over 264 pages of information about living a long, healthy life. The beautiful, colorful pictures accompany easy to read, easy to follow advice on how to slow the aging process by fighting "The Four Housemen of Aging" - Free Radicals or Oxidation, Inflammation, Glycation and Stress. As a 43 year old women with grandparents in their 90's this book is very interesting to me. My mom died before 35 and my dad has always had medical issues but I can look at how my grandparents lived and see that Dr. Jonny Bowden's book is right on target. My grandfather had a triple bypass over 20 years ago but is still going and that has to do with the way he lived. Practice forgiveness Put yourself in other people's shoes The quote that sticks with me the most today is: For every 1 pound of weight lost, there is a 4-pound reduction in the load exerted on the knee for each step taken during daily activities. I have terrible knees and will eventually need knee replacement surgery. This is very motivational for me to drop at least 10 pounds over the next year.
