Overview

Ancient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth by Peter Kelder

Legend has it that hidden in the remote reaches of the Himalayan mountains lies a secret that would have saved Ponce de Leon from years of fruitless searching. There, generations of Tibetan monks have passed down a series of exercises with mystical, age-reversing properties. Known as the Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation or the Five Rites, these once-secret exercises are now available to Westerners in Ancient Secret of the Fountain Of Youth. Peter Kelder's book begins with an account of his own introduction to the rites by way of Colonel Bradford, a mysterious retired British army officer who learned of the rites while journeying high up in the Himalayas. Fountain of Youth then offers practical instructions for each of the five rites, which resemble yoga postures. Taking just minutes a day to perform, the benefits for practitioners have included increased energy, weight loss, better memory, new hair growth, pain relief, better digestion, and just feeling younger.

My wife got the book about 4 years ago, some time after I pick it up and in not time I was done reading it, I was fasinated, so I started to follow the book's intructions, in about 2 months i was able to do all 5 rites and the changes started to happen, today I am still doing them and will do them as long as i am able to do them, I lost 40 pounds, my overall health is excelente. I haven't gotten sick in all this time, I highly recomend this book.

An interesting but controversial book. The author describes Tibetan methods of staying young. In summary, these methods are specialized routine exercise, healthy diet and eating habit, less sex, enhanced vocal and physical image, and positive mentality. I find these methods reasonable from a general health point of view. Even if following these advices don't make you look younger, they definitely will make you healthier! Remember it¿s not how young or old you look that matters, it¿s how healthy you are that truly matters.

I was given this book by a friend a few years ago and it sat on my shelf. Doing spring cleaning, I stumbled upon it again and stopped to read it. I must say that the results are miraculous. In 10 weeks, I have lost 65 pounds and developed muscles that have not been present since my teen years (I am 37). During the time I have lost 65 pounds, I have also gained 12 pounds of muscle (body fat testing). My energy levels are incredible and most people who don't know take me for being in my early to mid 20s. The Five Rites are for real and I will recommend them to anyone who wants to change their life for the better. People I work with have been so impressed with the results they have seen on me, that I have lent out the 4 copies of the book that I have and others are always waiting to read it. All this and it only takes 10 minutes a day of your time. If you want to contact me to ask any questions. Please feel free to email me. I feel very strongly the need to share this experience with others.

I'm 70 years old and am looking for a way to feel better, lose weight and look better and I found it in this book. I have been eating a healthy diet but it wasn't doing all I wanted it to do. Everyone should do the 5 exercises, which are simple and take little time. The 5 exercises are referred to as the Five Rites in this book. I've been doing the exercises for 7 weeks and I'm so excited about the results of firmer muscles and less wrinkles in my skin that I bought a couple of books for friends. This purchase is one that I bought for friends.

This book is a good companion to the book 'The Resurrected Dead Now Immortal Live Among us, A Manual for Immortality' because it gives exercises which will help a person gain some discipline in life. Most important is the mention of the last step which is abstinence from sex. In the Resurrected Dead book...this is essential for gaining immortality. The Fountain of Youth book has been around since the 1980's and is finally getting good recognition. The basic principles in this book will help give you the added health and longevity you need while working on achieving physical immortality.

The author describes in words and pictures six `rites¿ (yoga exercises) that Tibetan monks used to regain and retain youthful health. The descriptions are easy to follow and the first five rites can be done in about 15 minutes of daily practice. The sixth rite requires, according to the author, life-long abstinence from sexual intercourse, yet readers not interested in celibacy will find help in Mantak Chia¿s books that describe an almost identical exercise for a partnership. The author attributes his knowledge to a real (albeit imaginary?) figure he once met but who later mysteriously disappeared from sight, meaning he cannot be held responsible. And naturally, the book does not include a 100 percent money-back guarantee either should the reader not achieve the promised results. So, take it in stride. If you practice yoga, all but the first rite will most likely be part of your exercise program already. If you don¿t, then the five rites may be a great way to get started. They are easy and fun to do, although I cannot attest to the promised miracles.

When I first heard, second hand, of the results achieved by a friend of a friend, I found them fascinating and yet hard to believe. The most interesting and noticeable difference spoken of was the disappearance of the man's grey hair over a period of time after doing the exercises in this book. So, yes I had to het this book. After some procrastination I finally purchased the book and began the exercises recommended in the book. Within a few days I noticed that my sex drive had at least doubled. In addition to this, there have been a couple other small changes. Fascinated by the results I was acheiving, my girlfriend began to do the exercises and her sex drive went up immediately also. In addition, she, who occasionally gets cold sores, had developed a new cold sore only after having started the program for a few days. She says that the cold sore is smaller and healing faster than it ever had in the past.

I bought this book several years ago and did the exercises but quit. Now, after having some recent health problems, I have started again. Let me just say how important it is to breathe while doing the Five Rites as outlined in the book. You also need to perform your exercises in a quiet room. My results so far after three weeks: My grey hair on my temples is back to a dark brown. My skin on my hands is less wrinkled and has started to tighten back up. I have lost 8 pounds and returned to my ideal weight of 182 pounds. I sleep more soundly at night. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who would like to turn back the clock. And the best thing is, it only takes 20 minutes a day.
