While easy to read and understand, the book is a heavy read. Donna obviously did her homework as the information is well documented and backed up with numerous footnotes and citations. It is an easy read, but it can get bogged down with all the background given. There are many aspects of her book I agree with and know I should follow, but there are others that I either disagree with, or cannot afford or have the time to follow. Things I agree with include: 1. Things I disagree with: 1.
Throughout the book the reader is often encouraged to use this type of protein powder or that supplement, all of which are available on her website. It is basically a "paid advertisement", it's just not on television. That may be true.
But they can afford them. I cannot. Neither can anyone I know. My recommendation: if you've got unlimited income and are looking for possible solutions to health issues, definitely give this book, and her body ecology site tie-in a look. But if you're like most boomers I know, maybe do a few things, but save your money and check it out of the library. Then use that money to buy something you really need, like a tank of gas.
Mar 07, Louis rated it liked it. Just OK. Book: The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger by Donna Gates I usually don't subscribe to food or nutrition books, just plainly because there are so many different diets and approaches to food out on the market, that it's hard to pick one that makes sense for one's life style. However, I became intrigued by this book title's claim to growing younger, and decided to give it a try. Being a vegetarian, there are certain foods that I will definitely not try, otherwise I'm open to suggestions of Book: The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger by Donna Gates I usually don't subscribe to food or nutrition books, just plainly because there are so many different diets and approaches to food out on the market, that it's hard to pick one that makes sense for one's life style.
Being a vegetarian, there are certain foods that I will definitely not try, otherwise I'm open to suggestions of foods which will help not only to kill the harmful effects of certain substances but also to provide a better way to clean and keep the body well and healthy. This book is a guide - therefore, expect lots of hints and helpful information about food.
Some myths are broken, and it's perfectly OK, after all, not everyone has the same body type or can tolerate the same amount of food or liquid in their diets. One should choose to live by what makes sense to their organism. This is a very helpful guide to be kept handy when cooking or preparing food. The chapters about cleansing and detoxification were particularly beneficial, highlighting some information that was not new, and some which debunked some myths on how to eliminate toxins from our system.
Worth trying for the sake of feeling better. My only issue was some of the recommendations for the shopping list at the end of the book. These items are not so easy to find and obviously buying everything organic can certainly put a big dent on any budget. If you can find a way to reconcile what you can do with the information and still maintain a healthy diet after reading this guide, you will definitely reap great benefits for your body.
The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product. I understand how health and nutrition books can strike a nerve with people, but I don't know how anyone could give this book less than 5 stars. Well researched, well written, insightful, and thorough. This isn't a diet or recipe book. It is a comprehensive guide on, as the title says, growing younger. Two principles separate this book from the morass of nutritional science: the principle of uniqueness, and the principle of balance.
There is no one size fits all, magic formula for health, I understand how health and nutrition books can strike a nerve with people, but I don't know how anyone could give this book less than 5 stars. There is no one size fits all, magic formula for health, fitness, or longevity. Nor is there one magic, nutritional or fitness trick that fixes everything.
Donna Gates has written a fantastic book showing a much wiser path to wellness. Throughout this indispensable guide she manages to cover all the bases of creating your own personal fountains of youth, all the while, going much deeper than most health authors. For instance, many talk about the ancient Chinese theory of Chi energy, but she goes a step further with a complete explanation of what Taoists call The 3 Treasures; Chi, Jing, and Shen. This book bowled me over.
If you have the slightest interest in reversing the aging process, you need to read The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger, and keep it on your shelf as a reference tool.kinun-houju.com/wp-content/herudonik/4736.php

I received this book free, for review purposes from the good folks at Hay House. I was not paid for my assessment, and it is my honest opinion that this book rocks and you need to read it. Dec 16, Joeann Fossland rated it really liked it.
This book was a little too technical for me, but I appreciated all the research into staying young. I learned a few things that I can easily incorporate to be healthier, like eating more fermented foods. Lots of good info on fermented foods, and healthy nutrition in general. Too much emphasis on her expensive food products.
Quite a few self-contradictions and ambiguities. Well referenced, but too much 'fairy dust' for my taste. May 04, Kim rated it liked it. It had some interesting concepts.
