My own "Julie and Julia"
A couple of years ago I purchased the book "Secrets of Longevity" by Dr. Maoshing Ni, a 38th-generation doctor of Chinese medicine and an authority in the field of Taoist anti-aging medicine. At 46, I randomly flipped through it, patted myself on the back for the things I clearly had under control, and only half-heartedly read the other items. Now, at 48.5, I'm ready to go back and incorporate all of his recommendations into my daily life. I'd love someone to do this with me - any takers?
This book received terrific reviews and I like the fact that Dr. Mao (as his clients call him) "marries wisdom from the East with the latest scientific advances from the West". I've always had an open mind about Eastern medicine (acupuncture, chinese herbs, yoga, tai chi) so I really like this approach. I'll be sharing my thoughts, likes and dislikes as I become my own guinea pig. Again, any takers??
