Ask any boomer out there what’s important to him or her and good health will be at the top of their list. We know that if we want to continue to celebrate life as we age, we have to be mindful of how we take care of our bodies. Even more, many of us are choosing a different to health care than our parents did. Rather than rely solely on doctor’s orders, we want to take a proactive, integrative approach. And the world renowned Mayo Clinic has just the answer!
They’ve come out with a comprehensive, multifaceted guide to help us use natural, noninvasive methods to strengthen and heal our bodies. In it, you will find details on dozens of therapies, mindfulness practices and home remedies you will want to know. There are also home solutions to manage common issues such as high blood pressure, osteoporosis, motion sickness, hives and stress. And there are steps for administering first aid in emergencies: heart attacks, bleeding and choking. They also provide clearcut indications of when it is time to see your doctor.
I had the opportunity to interview one of the authors, Dr. Brant Bauer, and found the experience both informative and enlightening. I invite you to take a listen. Then take a look at the guide. This is one science-based, physician-authored resource that belongs in every boomers’ home.
