How can we turn back the clock? Health food, gyms and cosmetic
companies promise us everlasting youth, but the effects of
aging are caused by complex biological processes that have only
been brought to light through gerontology research over the past
two decades.<p>Dr. Björn Schumacher is one of the world’s foremost researchers
investigating the molecular mechanisms of aging. He shows how
new insights into biology are transforming our understanding of
the causes of aging and the diseases that affect us when we
grow old.<p>This book explains the genes and the cumulative damage that
drive human aging and disease, gives insights into current and
future therapies for healthy aging, and provides an outlook on
the future of the aging society. This engaging book breaks down
the science for everyday readers and shows what exciting breakthroughs
scientists are working on and what they’ve learned so
far. The author discusses what we can do to take care of ourselves,
and he looks at why we are so keen to deny that we are aging,
when indeed aging is a part of life — for everything from bacteria
to humans.

Uzzi Reiss
A pioneering gynecologist and antiaging specialist with a successful Beverly Hills practice, Dr. Uzzi Reiss shows the way for women who want to turn back the effects of time through natural hormone therapy, but who wonder: is it safe? Does it work? Is hormone therapy right for me?

Natural Hormone Balance for Women is Dr. Reiss's breakthrough, step-by-step program for women who want to take control of their lives by restoring hormonal balance. This revolutionary, commonsense natural hormone replacement program is designed to meet the individual needs of most women looking to rejuvenate body and mind—and offers astounding benefits for women of all ages:

More energy and stamina * Improved memory * Healthier, more youthful skin * Balanced moods * Less depression and anxiety * Stabilization of weight and more muscle definition * Better sleep patterns * PMS and menopausal symptoms reduced or eliminated * Enhanced sexuality

Dr. Reiss takes the confusion out of the medical information you need to know. In clear, nontechnical language, he thoroughly explains:

-the important difference between standard chemical hormone prescriptions and natural hormone replacements
-which hormone replacements are best for you and how to adjust them to your maximum individual benefit
-how to take hormones without worry
-how to choose the most effective hormonal gel, cream, pill, or sublingual drops, and when to use them.

Dr. Reiss has helped thousands of women transform their lives by achieving natural hormone balance. Now you can tap into the replenishing "fountain of youthfulness" that is not only essential for better life, but easier and safer to achieve than ever before.
