Baby Boomer Health Review

by terrilorah

The Book Baby Boomer Health by Donna Gates has been getting a lot of attention. But is it worth money spent to study what we know is coming....getting older?

Baby Boomers, in case you don't know are people who were born in the 1940's up until about 1964. This is the generation that has transformed society. Remember the 60's? Well, you know what they say about that, but looking back, free love, rock and roll and all that sure did change what society was then, didn't it?

This book, Baby Boomer Health is almost like a blueprint for our bodies. A way to re-visit ourselves and renew our bodies. I found this book full of medical info and practical health advice that I already knew a bit about but gives so much more. It even gives us some spiritual advice and shows us how to age with grace.

You don't even have to be a baby boomer to read this, because it's relavent to every age. Most of us will someday be over 50, so people of all ages may find it can be useful to them.

What's In The Baby Boomer Health Book?

Does she talk about anything new?
Some of the things Donna talks about in her book are things we are dealing with every day:

  • Anti-aging! All of the stuff you see on the market today seems to be geared toward older women and men and how to make us look younger. Donna talks about remedies that will make you feel and look younger.
  • Diets and why they don't work. Most diets don't and she'll go over the missing piece to all the traditional diets. I know that most of the time I waste my money and time trying all the fad diets and wind up gaining more weight in the end.
  • Some ideas on how to prevent aging and what we can do about it.
  • Stress and pressures that we encounter everyday and what to do! She shares some really interesting insights here.
  • We've all heard about Superfoods, right? Here, she will tell us how we can apply them to our lifestyle.

Have You Read The Baby Boomer Diet and what did you think of it?

Look how young and great she looks!!

Overall Thoughts

My final thoughts on this book, which I don't want to give it all away, is that this book is food for thought and if you are tired of hearing the same old stuff, you may want to check this out because it shows you a way to age from an expert who wrote The Body Ecology. I've never read that book but some reviews I read think The Baby Boomer Diet is just a rehash of that book, but then other reviews I read say it gives you so much more. Since I haven't read The Body Ecology, I can't say but I do know that when you read this one, you will be have much more knowledge about your body than before.

Excellent thoughts on the aging process. I hit 50 and tried to fight it, even to the extent of throwing away the AARP offers in the mail. Now I am an official AARP member and the benefits do save a few dollars here and there!

That's great that your parent's lived to 89, let alone an uncle at 95. Your familyl obviously has some good genes, which I think are a big plus! I work in a nursing home and we have a fellow here who is almosot 105 and still going strong!

Some good thoughts, Terri and some things to think about.

As one at the leading edge of the Baby Boomers, I have to ask "why are we afraid of aging?" Both my mother and father lived to 89 with no special diets. I have an uncle that is still living at the age of 95.

Currently I am in fairly good health but I know others who are not so fortunate and they can only dream of what they once had.

Rather on concentrating on trying to "fake" the aging process, I think we need to embrace it (we can't stop it) and learn to get the most out of it.
