Distinguished chiropractor and alternative health practitioner Dr. Susan Levy has over 30 years of experience in promoting the wellbeing of body, mind and spirit. This book applies her work to an aging population (50+). Uniquely, this material is presented through the lens of Clinical Kinesiology, a simple self-help tool of muscle-testing that allows readers to find out what their own body knows and needs. They learn that the body “speaks” through either strong or weak muscle responses to questions asked or situations presented, and are instructed in how to do this simple self-testing for a variety of health issues. Stories of other seniors who have used this methodology to their benefit provide a platform for acceptance and motivation, and each chapter contains specific recommendations for its use.
Far from being a scholarly or scientific text, Your Aging Body Can Talk is written for immediate use by maturing practitioners or laypersons. Throughout the book, the concerns of an aging population are consistently placed in the forefront:
- How to develop an anti-inflammation diet and lifestyle
- Dealing with factors that affect longevity
- How to build cognitive health and brain vibrancy How to find or refine your life’s purpose, no matter what your age
- Why detoxification is so essential after 50
The role of a “wise elder” is another unique emphasis of this book. The author encourages us to learn from many different cultures and traditions a more life-positive view of aging. In fact, she coins the word “Youthing” to describe such a re-orienting of mind, purpose and activity toward optimum vibrancy and flexibility, leading to longevity.
A BOOK FOR ALL CHIROPRACTORS AND OTHER ALTERNATIVE HEALTH PRACTITIONERS. NECESSARY READING FOR HEALTH-CONSCIOUS SENIORS (50+ YEARS). AN IMPORTANT ADDITION TO ALL LIBRARIES.
