Publisher Comments:

Now expanded and updated-the #1 New York Times bestselling book in which one of Americas most brilliant doctors shares his famous program for improving and protecting your health

Eight Weeks to Optimum Health lays out Dr. Andrew Weils famous week-by-week, step-by-step plan that will keep your bodys natural healing system in peak working order. It covers diet, exercise, lifestyle, stress, and environment-all aspects of daily living that affect health and well-being. This revised edition includes the most up-to-date findings on such vital subjects as cholesterol, antioxidants, trans fats, toxic residues in the food supply, soy products, and vitamins and supplements, together with a greatly enhanced source list of information and supplies. Inside you will learn how to

• develop eating habits for greater health and well-being

• start an effective exercise program based on walking and stretching

• work with breathing patterns to decrease stress and improve energy

• solve sleeping problems

• eliminate toxins from your diet

• minimize environmental hazards in your daily life

Plus-programs tailored to the specific needs of pregnant women, senior citizens, overweight people, and those at risk for cancer.

“If there is a heaven, sixtysomething Weil is headed there, but if he practices what he preaches, probably not for some time yet.”

- London Times

“Dr. Andrew Weil is an extraordinary phenomenon.”

-The Washington Post

Synopsis:

In his new book, Dr. Weil explains how the mechanisms and processes of the body's healing system work.    He delineates the ways in which an individual can optimize the functioning of his or her own system, and he explains the effects of the eight-week program, conceived to harness and support the internal healing system of our bodies.

Incorporating alternative medicines and treatments, he gives specific and detailed information on diet, exercise, stress reduction, breathing techniques, vitamins, supplements, herbs, and all the other components in the eight-week program. He customizes programs for special groups of people: pregnant women, overweight people, recovering alcoholics and drug abusers, those dealing with or overcoming heart problems, former cancer sufferers, people over 65, and a dozen other categories.

Building on the breakthrough thinking of Spontaneous Healing and drawing on the experiences of patients who have adopted his program, Dr. Weil's Eight Weeks to Optimum Health provides an invaluable means to maintain health and lessen the need for medical intervention.

"From the Hardcover edition."
