Healthspan by O. Jack Woodard, Jr., M.D. and Genevieve Johnson Woodard skillfully interweaves significant scientific breakthroughs in nutrition, psychoneuroimmunology, and energy medicine with historical perspectives on health, disease, and healing, astonishing case histories, one in the patient’s own words, and stories of the results of applying Healthspan principles in the Woodard’s own lives during times of both triumph and tragedy.
The essential uniqueness of Healthspan is that it is truly holistic and, at the same time, eminently practical. It describes the approach to the 100-year healthspan on all levels of life: physical, mental, and spiritual. (Nothing less will work.) The genius of the book is that it tells how to do all this while confronted by the realities of our time-urgent, noisy, overscheduled, overstressed, and frantic culture. Then comes the crowning achievement: practical instructions on how to have fun while claiming a fabulous birthright!
