Overview

The Body-Mind-Spirit Links to Healthy Aging by Lillian L. Beeson, Mary Jane Dugan

Beeson (communication, U. of Pittsburgh) and Dugan (psychology, Slippery Rock U.) present a "Wellness Model" of thinking about health and aging that rejects the notion that the aging process naturally leads to breakdowns of the body and mental abilities. They suggest that plastic surgeries and drug treatments that seek to extend youth should be rejected, instead offering advice on drug alternatives, exercise, nutrition, safety and precaution measures, and stress reduction techniques. They don't totally rule out the use of drugs, so they also present discussions of drug reaction education, and management and control of drugs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
